The trading process is indeed simple. What a trader does is a fairly simple task. Simply BUY or SELL and Simply analyze the market, prepare an order, and hold on to the trading system to generate profit or cut loss. Simply put: trading is basically discipline in following a trading plan. What we don't take into account is that, even though it's simple in theory, it doesn't mean it will be easy in practice.

Being a trader is very similar to being successful in losing weight hehehhe ..... there are those who directly weigh BB). Both of them do things that are simple in theory but difficult in practice. Most traders fail because they cannot survive on their own trading system. Finally they deviate to give way to bad habits, such as buying based on greed, closing positions early for fear, using too much money, or taking revenge after losing.

The lesson is that you should not mix between "simple" and "easy". Trading is simple, but not easy. Most traders will not succeed because they cannot do simple things for a long time. If you adhere to your own trading system for a long time, you will beat most traders. Traders with the mindset of "trading is easy" will have the mentality of wanting to get rich quick. This type of trader will eventually MC sooner or later. Instead, understand that trading is not an easy thing that will encourage you to be more willing to learn, be more careful and make better preparations when trading.

simple because there is only buy and sell, it is not easy because it is related to psychology and must be disciplined and consistent.

trading is easy because it can be done incoherently without analysis but don't expect you can get profits if trading the wrong way.

if we know how, trading will be easy, what's difficult is controlling our psychology.

if we do not understand the risks, trading is easy, but if we know the risk of trading is difficult.

trading is indeed not what we think, even though it looks easy but running with discipline is very difficult.

Trading is easy, anyone can directly make a transaction except to make a good system that takes a long time.

It's true, forex trading is not easy. Many factors must be considered in order to survive in the investment world that focuses on the movement of this currency pair. However, that does not mean that forex trading is too difficult to be mastered by newcomers. Just like other things, each individual's character can determine the level of success in forex trading.

if you think about it, it's easy to trade, sir. just buy and sell, but what makes it not easy is that we determine the buy or sell of a pair to make a profit.
