In this video David draws our attention to some of the most frequent mistakes that traders make. From fighting the trend and opening positions with unreasonably large sums to having stop losses too close, David discusses all these scenarios and shows how they unfold on real charts.
While not following the trend and placing stop losses are more technical tasks, how much money you put in a trend is something more psychological and this money management is often something traders underestimate. If you have a large position and every small move against it makes you feel a range of negative emotions then that increases the chance of a mistake.
So after watching the video you should be able to avoid these pitfalls and become both technically and psychologically a better trader. Write in the comments if you have any questions about the three mistakes and let us know what else you'd like to see David talk about.
