1. Have Discipline

  • Just like in the real world there are rules and regualtions
  • Following the rules and regulations prevent oneself from being penalised
  • Discipline means self control
  • Discipline means accepting the ‘punishment’ when you deserve it (eg: when you stray from a trading plan and you lose more than you should have)
  • We can’t be perfect but following a path of self control will more often than not bear fruit in the end

2. Be Conservative

  • Being conservative with your trades will keep you alive
  • Continual rashness will end of killing your hoopes of being a trader

3. Exercise proper risk manangement

  • Minimise your risk with proper risk management
  • Lower your exposure to loss with stop loss & take profit placement strategies

4. Have a trading mentor

  • If you can find a trading mentor
  • The apprentice will learn best from a true master
  • Having a mentor will train you to trade with ‘proper form’ and with correct discipline

5. Follow a trading plan

  • Have your plan and follow it
  • Be disciplined a stick to your plan
  • Only make adjustments if they are part of the original plan
  • Try not to think on the spot until you have a lot of experience

6. Learn, Learn, Learn

  • Educate yourself
  • Read books by master traders
  • Listen to podcasts
  • Follow top traders on social media

7. Learn Trading Psychology

  • Control the mind by adopting a correct trading psycholgy
  • Read books on the subject
  • Learn as much as you can as 80% of good trading starts with your psycholgy

8. Keep Trading Records

  • Keep accurate records of your trading to show your profit & losses
  • The record doesn’t lie
  • You can track your improvement
