So you have taken a loss. Okay, let us say you have taken an astounding loss. What now? It is not the end of the world. Now comes the part where you rise above the colossal mistake you have made in Forex trading.
Owning up to it.
Know you have made a mistake and it is a fact. Stop blaming anything or anyone else. Owning up to a mistake is the start. The sooner that you realize that mistakes can be made and will be made, then the sooner will you get back into the game.
Learn from it.
Every mistake is a learning experience. Even if the reason you realized is your own arrogance, greed, or some flaw in your calculations or in your strategy, there is something to learn. At least you know what not to do next time.
Try a new path.
Now you know the flaw in your strategy, reassess if you would change that part alone or totally try a new path. Failure gives us the chance to look at our plan from afar, to give us a bigger picture.
Assess the effects of the mistake.
What are the changes from your previous situation? You may find that you are not that worse off after all. You might be overacting a bit about the situation. However, if the mistake really has far-reaching effects, then better to list them. This way, you can asses which effects can be remedied and which you can do nothing about.
Perhaps you lacked discipline before. Then now is the best chance to wake up and make a solid system where you will base all your decisions.
Best thing to do is be stubborn and get back in the game. They do not call Forex trading the perfect marketplace for nothing. If there is currency dropping somewhere, then there must be a rise somewhere too. There is always a chance for profit.
