Have you ever been to a situation when you moved the stop because you couldn’t accept the lose, but ended up losing big chunk. Or you were too sure about the direction of the trade, you didn't even put a stop loss but trade went opposite your way and ended up losing ten times more then what you suppose to lose. What about this scenario, you were sitting on big profit; you didn’t partial because of greed or overconfidence and ended up giving every thing to the market. Never been to this kind of situation, that’s great, but if been through this kind of horrible situation and still having this problem then you are not alone. We human naturally like that, can’t accept loses or in other word we like to win. In the trading word it is impossible to win 100% of the time, trading is game of probability .Very simple concept which part of the probability we don’t understand. Probably we understand probability but when we involve in a trade our ego overleaps the logical part of our brain.
What should we do, we will let our ego to ruin our trading career or we will say good bye to our ego.
