A Day In The Life Of A Forex Trader

Another sleepless night worrying about open positions…

 

 

So you decide to get up to quickly check what’s going on in the market …..

 

 

It turns out that a stop loss hasn’t kicked in on your open trade….

 

 

Then you notice a huge hole in your capital as a result……

 

 

And realise that your carelessness has thrown a fortune away….

 

 

This causes you to become a little emotional ….

 

 

So you put on another trade quickly to try and recover the loss….

 

 

But the market is like…..

 

 

So your account starts to look like……

 

 

This causes you to become a little more emotional…..

 

 

So you decide to go for a run to clear your head….

 

 

But after an hour you’re still like ……

 

 

So you call your trader friends for some support….

 

 

But they’re all like….

 

 

So you have a tantrum in public….

 

 

Eventually you calm down…..

 

 

But by the time you get home you’re in no state for trading…..

 

 

So you decide to grab some zzzz’s and get ready for bed…..

 

 

Excited to try again in the morning……

 

 

You make sure everything is in place…..

 

 

You check your calendar and your fundamentals….

 

 

You study your charts like a boss…..

 

 

This time you follow strategy to the letter….

 

 

Your confidence makes a comeback…..

 

 

Before you know it you’re scalping in and out the market like a pro again….

 

 

And after a few winning trades your all like…..

 

 

You pull your best victory dance

 

 

And you’re back on top!!
