    Other than coming up with the best strategy, the best thing one should learn is to have is a full control of their emotions. Never overlooking the importance of controlling your emotions; if you're to succeed in forex, your emotions must be put at bay. While I'm not going to provide an absolute solution to controlling your emotions, it will help you in understanding certain thing you're probably overlooking.

    You want to control your emotions, first control you breath. Their is power in learning to master your breath, before every day trading, take deep breaths for almost 15 minutes. In through your nose, and out through your mouth. That way, you ease the previous tension, emotions cannot be seen, neither can breath be seen. Since both cannot be seen, but their effect can be seen; if you can control one, you'll ultimately control the other. If you're a constant meditator you understand what I mean!

    From anger management perspective, anger can be seen as an aggression cycle consisting of escalation, explosion, and post-explosion. Therefore, when you are angry, calm down so your aggression cycle falls apart. With a calm mind, you can think logically and find a solution.

    It is not easy at all to control emotions because they are directly connected to your level of knowledge and experience, if you have sufficient knowledge and experience then you can easily make big profits. But if you lack that then you will struggle.
  4. The best way to control emotion is that we practice on demo account. If we do regular practicing then it will really help us with reducing emotions and will be able to focus on making right plans and strategy.

    There are several ways to control your emotions:

    1. Try to invest your time to analyze market rumors, before making any trade transactions. Knowing the clarity of the market direction will make it more confident and calm.

    2. Do not over confidence! It's better to enter 1 lot than 2 lots if it will burden the mind.

    3. Do not be too push yourself to participate in the transaction, if you are not sure the direction of market movement. Better to wait or postpone transactions rather than the wrong positions that cause emotions and psychology to be affected.

    4. Try to build a winning psychology! It is always advisable to be able to win (profit) at least 3 times in this forex trading. This is to build a winner's psychology instead of a loser (looser). A boxer who wins in his inaugural match will have the psychological impact of the champions in the next game.

    5. Create a daily target, close the position if it is on target. We can gather with our friends in the real world or play FB, continue our work routines and others.

    6. Always condition yourself in as comfortable as possible when entering the market for execution buy or sell. Man is blessed with three virtues bestowed by the creator, the mind to think, the heart to pray, and also the time. For that use the three graces from God as well as possible.

    That way, trading will be an effort to balance. A trader should focus on profits and be able to respond to losses and try to balance the two. A trader is obliged to concentrate on the probability of the method and concentrate on the information provided by the market. That way your trading will be more accurate and reliable.

    For me, planning and sticking to your plans are the keys to keep yourselves away from emotions during trading. regardless what happens, just stick to that plan you've arranged with cooler head.

    I might to mention about overconfidence. It's really crucial since it's related to our risk management. It's better to just risk arounc 2% of our deposit in a day or in a single trade (if you're a swing trader) and stop when you have your daily target achieved (please, don't be greedy on your target)

    Making a decision to execute A sell or buy order requires a trading system that is run with discipline, to override trading emotions. When we have rules for opening and closing positions, and having an understanding that the discipline of the trading system must be applied, then we no longer need to worry or panic if prices move beyond initial expectations.
