Inconsistencies in both trading and enriching your knowledge of the markets are a sure step to failure! This is a common mistake committed by many traders, which eventually leads to a lot of losses!

#4 Affinities to particular stocks

Many times traders get attached to particular stocks, most often penny stocks and do not sell them even when they are making big losses. They keep making excuses to postpone the selling. This eventually leads to big time losses!
