Lack of risk capital: In the market means inadequate capital for diversification and staying power in the market.
Not having a trading plan results in alack of money management. Then, when too much ego gets involved, the result is emotional trading.
Inadequate trading assets or improper money management: It does not take a fortune to trade Forex markets with success. Traders with less than $2,000 in their trading accounts can and do trade Forex successfully. And, traders with $80,000 or more in their trading accounts can and do lose it all in a pulse. Part of trading success narrows down to proper money management and not gunning for those highly risky “home-run” type trades that involve too much trading capital at one time.
