Hi all,

Before i will start to trade i wanna make sure mine head is clean and very motivated and relaxed as well to start mine trading sessions. Also very important for me is that i need a cup of coffee first before i will analyse the charts :)

What is your first thing that you will do before start trading? Or maybe you have some advice to give to all members.

Kind Regards,

BSB Zen

    Hi BSB Zen

    I do something similar to you...

    Usually, before I trade, I go through what I term 'a preflight check' which involves a bunch of things, some of which are:

    * Reviewing my trading journal of the previous 10 - 20 trades taken
    * Expressing sincere gratitude for all the abundance in my life
    * Reconfirm my goals for the session
    * I then clear my mind and simply watch the market for 10 - 15 minutes to get in synch with the rhythm. If work is really busy I cut this down to 5 minutes.

    When ready I take 2 or 3 'paper' trades and then hit it with a big stick.

    Have you ever watched a sports superstar go through a pre-action routine? They do certain things with their bodies, and you can see that, simultaneously, there is a movie running through their mind. This is a process to anchor themselves into a peak state of performance (Tony Robbins), in order to deliver their best, as demanded. This routine puts the athlete into the 'zone' of peak performance.

    I do my fair share of public speaking, and I have my own anchoring routine that I do before going on stage. This process gives me immediate access to my best state, regardless of whether or not I slept well the night before, have a headache etc. I deliver the best experience I possibly can for my audience each and every time.

    My preflight check routine is the same process for my trading.

    Thanks

    When I wake up and have a difficult trading day ahead of me, I go for a run. A little physical activity help keep yourself alert all day, also when I feel a little drouzy, it's good to take a 5 minute break and do some stretching, there are special exercises for office workers, which suit traders just as well.

    Before opening an account with a broker, I read the conditions, research about them using different resources. and it's always good to test them in action, whether it's a cent, demo or real deposit, but with a small sum at first.

    for me it's important to be morally gathered. That's why before begining to trade I always try to drink some coffee and finish all other things, so as not to get distracted with anything.

    The moment I wake up, I go to the bathroom to refresh everything, make breakfast and a cup of coffee. Then I clean up things and check my previous trading records of yesterday before starting to trade again.

    OK, thanks for telling us. But you're in the wrong thread, feel free to start a thread of your own and tell us all about it. We definitely want to know. Sory to hear you got burned.

    Hi everyone,
    Your Net Worth Needs to Become the Primary Personal Finance Number You Care About.

    First of all, what exactly is “net worth”? Net worth simply means the total value of everything you own – your home, your car, any valuables that could easily be resold, and the balances of your checking account, savings accounts, and any investments you have – minus the total of any and all debts you have – mortgage, credit cards, student loans, and so forth. So, if I owned a house worth $100,000 and a car that I could sell for $10,000 but I had $50,000 in student loans (and no other debts), my net worth would be $60,000.

    More than anything else, your financial focus should be on this number and how you can make it bigger. There are a lot of ways to make it bigger: paying off debts, not spending money on foolish or wasteful things, improving your income, and, yes, investing.

    Really good post this. I find it to be very similar to what I do and what I would recommend to others.

    Coffee, relax and then concentrate.

    Great thread.

    Some kind of physical activity and short meditation just to set mind on right track helps me a lot.

    Before session I make cup of coffee and write down some goals that I want to achieve which will keep mind on track and prevent distractions, that works well at least for me.

    Nothing too special just a normal day for me. Early morning exercise, talking to my wife, have breakfast and listening to music that gives me a good vibe or a chill vibe.

    I trade after my day job, so I have some time at the night. I have some tea and concentrate on my trade goals.

    Thanks for the deep insight, I am sure it took you years to develop that theory.

    Why do you choose Binary instead classic trading? In real market, one can get better reward/risk
  • The_Geek_MHThe_Geek_MH Posts: 590 mod
    binary is less hassle, easy to trade, easy to set up account, no margin, no BS.

    Also before starting to trade, I always prepare myself mentally and try to relax.
  • TrezoTrezo Posts: 38
    Before uploading the trading terminal, I tune in psychologically and immediately jump into it. It helps to be more productive in what I do.
  • Do one demo trade just to get my confidence up and running as well as to see how the market moves with my strategy.

    Before starting to trade, I try to finish all my errands as much as possible, in order not to get distracted later.

    For me it's very important to drink some water and spiritually tune in, get rid of unnecessary thoughts and abstract myself from everything except trading.

    Haha...excatly Yasim, coffee is esential. Look for a good pair and strike for a test. Sometimes the pair is to volatile, then i look for another pair and test this.
    I trade 4-5 times a day on specific hours to fit my way of trading...not to volatile, and not to calm, that is what i like.
  • MalvridMalvrid Posts: 76
    I always watch the chart window for 40-50 minutes in order to know the behavior of the market. Then if I find an opportunity to enter the market, I start analyzing the market fundametaly with basic tools including candle stick patterns and moving averages. After complete satisfaction, then I enter the market with a good plan for leaving as well.
  • FerinFerin Posts: 29
    The first thing i do before starting trade is thank God Almighty. Thank Him for the opportunity that He has provided me with. I also reconfirm my goals and the strategy i will implement. So, what do you do before starting trade?

    That's exactly how I do it before I start trading

    The first thing you must have to do before starting the trading in the forex that is learn well about the market. And be calm and patient while doing the trade. Your patience is very important because if you become hyper than chances of losing the money becomes double.
