早在 1987 电影华尔街, 迈克尔·道格拉斯’ 字符, 戈登壁虎, 给他 (在)著名 “贪婪是好的” speech. The thrust of it all was that greed, “贪婪的生活, 钱, 爱情, 知识…标志着人类的向上飙升。”
The merits of that statement have been argued since Douglas first uttered it and I am not here to defend one side over the other. My point in this article is to relate how greed in 过剩, 由于贪婪 该 主要动力 in a trader can lead to defeat. The ultimate defeat being blowing up their trading account.
表白时间: Just so you know that I have had up close and personal run ins with greed, allow me to relate a story. Very early in my trading career, I made a classic rookie blunder. I put on a trade (太大了), 秒后NFP (这样太不稳定), 想使 20 pips on the GBPUSD. If this trade worked out, 我想, 这将让我的一个交易周! What a genius idea and what a genius I was to think of it!! 很好, 业内人士做了它对 +17 pips and stalled. 但, 贪婪引导, 我坚守了 20 点子 (太固执). End result – 我输了 23 点子 (太愚蠢). Lesson on greed learned the hard and expensive way.
“如何控制贪婪??? That has been my number one problem in trading.”
那么，我们如何, 凡人，我们都, 去控制这一切都太人类贪婪的情绪?
首先, 如果你可以用这些报价在所有确定, 它意味着你都知道，贪婪是您的交易产生负面影响，而识别是朝着解决问题迈出了一大步.
To keep this detrimental emotion in check, 有一个明确的交易计划 写出来 will go a long way toward eliminating the problem. Keep the plan nearby where you can reference it prior to placing any trade. The plan will be a strategy that you have tested and one that has put pips into your account over time. By this I do not mean positive pips on every single trade since every trade will not be a winner. 但, 总体, 该战略已添加到您的帐户规模.
现在，我们已经在交易计划明确了, 我们必须 – 必须 – only take trades that fit that plan precisely. If the trade does not measure up, 我们 别 采取贸易 – simple as that. We only want to take higher probability trades that are based on our pre-determined plan. This will eliminate randomly jumping into trades based on emotion because “那种看起来OK”, 或 “我只是想在一个行业” 综合征.
从来不是绝对最大的投入更多 5% of your trading account at risk at any one time. This means no matter how many trades you have open at once, 如果他们 所有 变成输家 (是的, 可能发生), 你不会失去超过 5% of your trading account. Keep in mind that when it comes to risk, less is better than more. 所以 3% 风险比好 5% 和 1% 是优于3％…你的想法.
还, 总是与贸易 1:2 到位的风险回报比率. This means if you’re risking 50 你应该寻找一个贸易点子至少 100 利润在贸易点子.
最后, 一旦贸易与止损和限价引发 – 我不能强调这不够下一个点 – 别打扰它!! 只是让交易之前发挥出自己根据您到位的原始参数在被交易…当情绪是不存在的.
当你在看排行榜, 检查趋势, 支持和阻力水平, relevant fundamental announcements and the like, 你是 完全无感慨. You had no “皮肤在游戏” 在这一点上. The plans that were put together at that time were based on facts. Once the trade is entered , 然而, 情绪会转移到高挡的钱 – 你的钱 – 上线. Making changes to a fact based, emotionless trading plan based on moment to moment emotional shifts induced by price action in the market is not a prudent way to trade. It is a deadly way to trade.
Managing and dealing with the emotion of greed is not something that will be resolved over the next couple of trades. 然而, 由是意识到如何贪婪可以在您的交易产生负面影响，并实施前的想法，你的交易方案的一部分, 您将采取积极措施对贪婪自由贸易的目标.
