I have to write this. During this recent bull-run, some of my friends lose quite a substantial amount of their trading capital by shorting the index futures. Instead of cutting their losses quickly, they compound to their mistakes by adding short positions as the index futures traded higher each day. In this post, I would like to bring out 5 sure ways to lose your money in the stock market, commodities market, or forex. You will be surprised that many of the index futures traders out there are practicing these and therefore on their ways to financial ruins. Don’t do this as it will hurt your pocket and causes you to lose your precious trading capital. Apart from sharing with you on these few key points on stock trading wisdom, I will also share with you on the traders’ psychology and why they kept making these mistakes and were not able to rescue themselves out of this financial mess.
