    Over trading is the biggest mistake as it leads to account over leveraging, this can lead to a huge decrease in margin for an account, stick to a certain margin requirement for your account size.

    3. Reduce the number of Pairs Traded
    Confusion is the last thing that you would want to have when managing funds in a trading account, having a lot of positions in a number of pairs in an account can bring a lot of confusion to both new and professional traders as it can be very difficult to master every move that is being made by every pair you have opened.

    We Recommend that you stick to a certain number of pairs and master their movements.

    4. Open Trades Based The Trend
    Your Best friend in the markets is the trend not yourself, stick to the market trend to improve your rate of winning, trends often last for 3 months and trading against it means you are taking a position again a three month possible move.

    5. Have a Trading Plan
    Have a plan, every weekend you need to have a plan on how you will trade each trading week and stick to that plan and stick to the weekly target.

    6. Avoid Trading with very small Funds
    Trading with very small accounts is nothing more than giving away money in the markets, small accounts often don't survive certain price reversals, and it may create a lack of comfort for the trader as their accounts gets wiped. we highly recommend traders to save funds and start with efficient funds.

    7. Close Losing Trades 
    We traders are quick to close winning trades and tend to leave losing trades with the hope that they will come back to profit, such trades are very less likely to come into profit before they blow your trading account.

    Handling Emotions Professionally is a must to win as Forex Trader, always stick to a disciplined trading and avoid emotions that can harm your trading career.
