Trading Psychology: Placing Your First Trade

Trading Psychology: Placing Your First Trade

In this video David discusses the mental hurdle of placing your first trade with any type of instrument, regardless if it’s in forex, stocks or commodities. Trading can seem daunting and complex and beginners can make mistakes when they open their first active position.

He takes you through the actual process of making that first trade, setting a stop loss to manage risk and the amount you should trade with at the start of your trading journey.

At Trading 212 we provide an execution only service. This video should not be construed as investment advice. Investments can fall and rise. Capital at risk. CFDs are higher risk because of leverage.

    Was the unit 3000 in GDP? struggling to wonder what that refers to

    • Trading 212 says:

      Hi, Samuel. Focusing on the example in the video, the quantity of the position is 3,000 units GBP/USD. The units are measured in GBP and the result – in USD. You can use the margin and swap details feature in the trading app to calculate them for a trade, prior to opening it. Please note the margin and interest swap will be displayed in the currency of your trading account.
