Well let's examine some of the options you have. In my experience you basically have three choices. Emotional Control: You have to develop a disciplined approach to the forex market, execute by the numbers for buys and sells, and prevent your emotions from interfering with the process. There is a psychology to trading, and you can be your own worst enemy if you do not follow a fixed routine. Many novice traders are unaware of the mental attitude necessary for successful trading.

More on money management later in the course.
