When trading one of the most important ability's to have is patience, to just sit and do nothing till whatever you are waiting for is about to happen.
Just like a cat that lies in wait to catch its prey you to must learn this skill, or suffer the indignity of entering a trade to early or to late and losing even more of your money.
Thinking without reason is a dangerous process which needs to be moderated with consideration and patience acting on your thoughts alone will only lead to confusion.
When you are about to take a trade ask yourself why are you making this trade, Is it based on previous analysis that has been confirmed in the here and now, Or just a snap trade that you are making on the spur of the moment without any real reason.
If you are entering a trade for the right reasons don't just jump straight in, look at the situation and try to see if its the right time to enter, What if you waited a little longer maybe price will pull back and you will get a better price or has price already gone without you and you have missed the bus.
This is where patience comes in, you must learn to WAIT WATCH WAIT and WAIT some more and only then when you are as sure as you could be do enter the trade.
The market and other trades will still be there tomorrow.
Make sure that you are. :
