Embracing The Risk In Futures Trading
By Ultimate Trading
There Is A Lot Of Risk In Futures Trading That You Must Learn To Accept
Are all traders risk takers? There is certainly a risk in futures
trading. No trade has a guaranteed outcome, so the possibility of
being wrong and losing money is always present. So when you execute
a trade, can you consider yourself a risk-taker?
Logically, you would think that if you engage in an activity that is
inherently risky, then you must be a risk-taker. Virtually all
traders make the assumption that there is a risk in futures trading,
and most traders even take pride in thinking of themselves as
However, there is an important difference between taking a
in futures trading, and accepting a risk in futures trading. Any
trader is taking a risk when he executes a trade, but that doesn't
mean that he is also accepting that risk.
All trades are risky because the outcomes are probable, but do most
traders really believe they are taking a risk when they execute a
trade? Do they really understand that the trade has a
non-guaranteed, probable outcome? And have they fully accepted the
possible consequences of the risk in futures trading?
No, they generally have not done these things. There is often a
psychological gap between assuming you are a risk-taker because you
make trades and accepting that there is a risk in futures trading.
Most traders have absolutely no concept of what it means to be a
risk-taker in the way a successful trader thinks about risk.
The best traders not only take the risk, they have also learned to
accept and embrace that risk in futures trading. When you fully
accept the risks, it has a profound implication on your bottom-line
The best traders can make a trade without the slightest bit of
hesitation or conflict, and just as freely admit it isn't working.
They can get in and out of the trades without a bit of emotional
discomfort. The risk in futures trading do not cause the best
traders to lose their focus, self-confidence, or discipline. If you
cant trade without anxiety, and without fear, then you have not
learned to accept the risk in futures trading. Unfortunately,
whatever the degree to which you haven't accepted the risk in
futures trading is the same degree to which you will try to avoid
the risk. Trying to avoid something that is unavoidable will have
disastrous effects on your ability to trade successfully.
Learning to truly accept the risk in futures trading in any
endeavour can be difficult, but it is extremely difficult for
traders. What are most traders biggest fears? Losing money and
being wrong both rank close to the top of the list. Admitting we are
wrong and losing money in the process can be extremely painful, and
is certainly something that is avoided. Yet as traders, we are
confronted with these two possibilities virtually every moment we
are in a trade.
Learning how to redefine your trading activities in a way that
allows you to completely accept the
in futures trading is the key to thinking like a successful
trader. Accepting risk in futures trading is a trading skill - one
of the most important skills you can learn. Yet it's rare that
developing traders focus any attention or expend any effort to learn
to do this.
When you learn this skill, the market will not be able to generate
information that will be painful to you. If the information the
market generates doesn't have the potential to cause you emotional
pain, then there's nothing to avoid. Its just information telling
you what the possibilities are. Seeing information and events
objectively is your goal; and it is a key factor in trading
