Are You Addicted to Trading?

Postby MrThind » Thu Dec 06, 2012 10:26 am

How do you know if you're already addicted to trading and not just passionate about it? Here are a few questions you should consider asking yourself:

Do I often find myself still trading even after I have told myself to stop?
Has trading created problems in my relationships with other people?
Has trading caused me financial problems?
Have I ever been told that I'm trading too much and that I should stop?
Do I consider myself a big risk-taker, betting more than what I know I should on certain trades?
Have I tried to erase my losses by increasing my positions?
Are there times when I trade just because I'm bored?
Do I feel the pain of losing more intense than feeling of satisfaction I get from winning?

If you've answered yes to all or most of the questions, take a deep breath and calm down. It's not the end of the world. There are a few ways that you can get over your addiction to trading.

If trading is an addiction, I don't want to be cured. It's my bread and butter. If I stop then I'll go hungry.

These question look like the therapy for alcoholics))) And I believe that if trader answered positive on at least half of them, he is not only addicted, he also doesn't have any trading strategy,

Trading can't be an addiction, definitely it needs time and attention. The extent to which trading is done depends from person to person, whether its a full time job or just part time.
Its good to perform trading on part time basis only :!:

Not stop trading not mean addicted to trading, to be a successful trader in the trading forex world takes unyielding spirit, but this does not mean we are constantly trading in any condition, there are times when we must pause from trading, reflect and analyze our trading to become more well the next day.

Trading is a form of gambling and you can have gambling additions. Who here isn't excited by the prospect of making a big winning trade. I'm not sure if I am addicted yet (although I do think about it all the time). I guess that the important thing is to know when you are addicted before you loose all your money!

I think when we are doing something on a consistent basis than its likely we might become addicted to it just like we are addicted to internet or mobile phones so same goes with Forex when we do it for years it automatically becomes addiction which is not bad not neither is great.

Yes, I am addicted to trading and so much that I have even given up my job for this, but I won’t say I am crazy to do that instead it’s due to the profits that I am able to earn from here and that’s what made me addicted. It is boosted further due to OctaFX broker and their superb scheme that includes low spread of 0.2 pips, high leverage up to 1.500 and really ideal customer service too which is 24 hours available.
