In a recent NetPicks blog post, the company discusses the importance of mindset when it comes to achieving positive results. In particular, the post focuses on the significance of handling losses properly as means to trading success. Trading psychology and mindset, according to top traders, is 90% of their trading game.

“These traders take each loss in stride and treat a loss as part of doing business. They don’t rant on social media about the unfairness of the market. They don’t play the victim but understand that a loss is expected for their trading plan,” according to the post. NetPicks urges traders to to accept their losses and view them as something positive rather than a hurdle – this, according to the post, will not paralyze them but allow them to succeed.


NetPicks urges their traders to have a trading plan that will allow them to have “some idea of the expectancy of their trading system” so that they understand the random distribution of their wins/losses. The plan should include an exit strategy that traders ought to follow in the case of a trade that is not performing. If all steps of the plan are followed, traders will experience what NetPicks calls a ‘positive loss.’ “Taking the loss at your predetermined cut off point is consistency in action and proof that you are following your trading plan. That is a positive loss to take,” the blog post advises.


On the other hand, a negative loss is one when the trader has lost money as a result of not following their rules of stopping or exiting. The blog post advises traders to be adamant about following their exit strategies – that is the only way to avoid a negative loss.


According to the blog post, traders have two exits in their trades, their profit and their protective stop. Furthermore, one never really knows which trader is a winner, as that is dependent on both the market as well as the bias of other traders. Ultimately, NetPicks advises traders to adjust their expectations. Instead of expecting to win, they ought to seek a positive outcome. Traders should expect to lose a certain amount of time but should make sure they are “adhering to the predetermined exit price in the case a loss leaves them with an account that is still ready to take another trade.” This will enable them to continue trading without losing confidence.
