Dealing With Losses in Stock Trading

Hi everyone👋💝☀️
Happy Wednesday🙂

Another too short day-trading session again. I ended up with a 2.468% profit. The market kept moving and formed some other trade setups that I didn’t take because I was busy with the site and I saw the trade setups a little too late. But, it’s okay.

Dealing With Losses in Stock Trading

You have noted that I talk about losses more than profits in stock trading. The reason is, if you learn how to limit and handle your losses, you will win. Another reason is, losses hurt you emotionally, but profits don’t. So, you have to learn how to deal with your losses. Your profits won’t be any problem. Maybe I can even say that trading is not about making profits. It is about handling losses. Your losses can stop you, but your profits can’t.

Before you read the rest of this article, submit your email, not to miss the messages that nobody can afford to miss:

When your losses are big and uncontrolled, they can wipe out your account. This can cause you to give up on stock trading for good. If you miss the opportunity of making money through stock trading, chances are you will never be faced with such a great opportunity for the rest of your life. And, this will be a much bigger loss. So, you should not let this happen from the first day that you start trading stocks.

When your losses are small but repeated and continuous, they can develop fear in you that can gradually prevent you from trading, until you quit trading completely.

Therefore, losses are more important than profits and they have to be handled properly, otherwise they can create serious and permanent problems for stock traders. However, the good news is, it is very easy to do this. If you simplify a problem, you can resolve it much easier. So let’s simplify the problem of losses in stock trading:

If you are a novice trader and you want to start, or if you have traded before but haven’t been successful and you want to have a fresh start, then the first thing you must do is to start with a small account. That’s why I always say, you should start with $500 maximum. That’s the first step to handle your losses in stock trading.

The second step is to limit your losses to 2% maximum in any position you take. Therefore, if you start with a $500 account (either demo or live), 2% will be $10 only. And, a $10 loss with a $500 account is very easy to digest and handle. You must follow this route forever. Even if your $500 account grows into $5 billion, you should do the same with any position that you will take. Even if you trade successfully and you become consistently profitable for 100 years, still you should limit your loss to 2% whenever you want to take a new position.

Never think that you won’t wipe out your account because you have been trading successfully for years. Even after 100 years of successful trading, you can wipe out a $5 billion account with one position. The stock market is always smarter than you. You cannot fight with it, nor can you think that you have known it enough and you know how it moves. No! You can never know the markets. They have always been and will always remain unpredictable. You can only see a trade setup, take a position and set a 2% stop loss. This is all you can do. The rest is up to the market, not you. Only the market knows what direction it should move. You can never know.

That was the stock trading tip of the day. I think I shared the biggest stock trading success secret above. Now, I’d like to share another secret with you:

How to Start Stock Trading

First, make a small amount of money somehow, and learn how to grow it through stock trading, to achieve financial freedom.

It is only in The United States stock market trading that you can grow a small budget into a huge capital. Here, I don’t want to explain why “The United States stock market” and not other markets, because it is irrelevant and has to be discussed in a different article or video. Something that matters here is that you can really turn a small budget like $500 into $1 million, by making 20-30% profit per month on average, in the long-term and within 2-4 years. You can do it, if someone teaches you the correct way of trading, and if you follow the above formula to limit your losses to 2% all the time.

  1. They join us for free and without having to pay any membership or upgrading fees.

I will start off by saying, “Thank you, Vahid”. I really, never understood the concept of setting the stop loss. Being inexperienced, I didn’t set a stop loss and I lost it all. I gave up and said, I would never trade again. After reading your article, I see my mistake. You have simplify my problem.What you said, makes sense to me. There are 3 things I can see and do, the trade set up, take a position and set a 2% loss regardless. The rest is on the market. If only I had known. The key is, now, I know. Again, I say, Thank you, Vahid!

Your knowledge in these things is invaluable and the fact that you so willingly and selflessly share with us everyday is astounding. Enough respect to you Vahid. May God bless you

I love this article. This has been my major problem; controlling losses. Sometimes even forgetting to put stop losses on a trade. Often my lot size and stop loss was not always limited to 2%. Thank you Vahid for saying this over and over. I needed to hear it and I’ll need to keep hearing it and possibly as an affirmation. I’m in the right place at the right time

Hi there Vahid. Absolutely true. I think the whole idea is to start small and learn as you earn while you grow an account. And, by starting with a small amount you should treat it as if it is already a million-dollar business. In such way one may cultivate the sincerity as well as responsibility it takes to be able to become a consistently profitable trader. And you will then also grow with your wealth by learning to respect money and being indifferent towards it. In being able to manage a large account one must have developed the qualities which should supersede the skills to attain such wealth. Trading is not a game, and it is not gambling. It is a completely worked out science and it takes an art to be able to properly apply it – Like martial arts. The difference between a success and a failure is: Either you are TRAINED, OR NOT. A well-trained person is well equipped to handle setbacks, improvise, adapt and overcome, and so learn from any situation pertaining to his/her field of expertise and then develop himself/herself to a level where such an individual will become a top performer. This applies to all areas of endeavor in life. Once one has mastered the skill to trade successfully one will also discover that the qualities that go along with it will spill over to one’s personal, social, academic and other areas of pursuit. It is inevitable. Take the simple ability to be organized, and keep your workstation where you trade clean, as an example. And then, losing money in the process is a natural phenomenon which plays an integral part in the learning curve. Trading is a business, and any business has losses. Therefore, if one has a business, then one should also be insured against losses, right? Well, there is also an insurance in trading against losses called a ‘stop loss’. The wonderful thing about trading is that one can learn to use such a tool properly and then take calculated, and informed, risks as any business also has risks involved. What you have discovered/designed is a method to be able to generate an income by starting small and then growing it EXPONENTIALLY over time with discipline, patience and persistence. And there is no CATCH. What you need is a PC/laptop, internet connection and the willingness to learn and invest some time in it. There are also no nagging bosses, overhead expenses, salaries to pay, loans to pay off, or backstabbing and office politics. You basically ‘compete’ with yourself in your own time and on your own pace. Possibly the greatest factor serving as key to unlock the door to a successful career in trading is REFUSING TO GIVE UP. We must remember that specialists train many, many years before they actually go into practice themselves, and so earn a living off it. The miracle here with Vahid, however, is that the learning curve involved with a seemingly complex, and difficult, industry can drastically be shortened under the guidance and tuition of an already successful person – at no cost! WHERE WILL YOU FIND SOMEONE WILLING TO HELP AND ASSIST YOU IN SUCH A MANNER?! Vahid, based on my own humble experience, I can completely resonate with what can be considered ‘a noble cause’ in an attempt to provide people with an opportunity to develop an incredibly valuable skill enabling them to free themselves from the rut of the rat race, and financial slavery. I think this is possibly the best opportunity I have ever come across allowing one to gradually step into the fast lane where every ‘workday’ feels like a holiday, every meal a banquet and every paycheck a fortune. But remember this… With freedom there is a price to pay – Everything in life has a ‘payoff’. The price here is actually very small, and is synonymous with what I personally consider the two rules for happiness, and success: Rule no 1: Get rid of everything and anyone which annoys you. Rule no 2: Enjoy life responsibly. See you on the other side Vahid, and God bless. You are an awesome guy!

That’s amazing, another day another lesson for us who are serious about becoming professional stock traders. Dealing with losses is something I embrace fully and I respect fully, I fact is something that should be part of every trader DNA. It’s good to have someone who is willing to teach us his wisdom and how to trade stocks with confidence, bearing in mind that always one should apply stop loss.

After reading this heartfelt article I can say that if you are not willing to loses or can’t control your emotions when you lose a trade, you simply shouldn’t be trading stocks. from the reading I can see that dealing with losses is fundamental import, hence one should always be aware of all tricks the market can throw at you. I honestly think that one should always be prepared to lose, of course its not a nice feeling , that’s why the importance of dealing with emotions when you lose a trade is utterly important also. I must say that today’s lessons has been enlightening.

Truly, this is a lesson well taught! My focus, as a novice, in trading shall center on loss management instead of profit because as clearly stated by Vahid, it is the losses that can wipe one’s account, and at times lead to one quitting. The “Golden Rule – 2%” set loss shall be my daily guidance.
