For those just starting out in the markets, it might seem that to become a successful, full-time trader it would require super human powers. However, it doesn’t. Trading is no different to any other endeavour and the attributes that will eventually help you achieve long lasting success are mostly the same as those needed in any other field. However, while you might not need to be a superhuman to achieve success, some of the qualities of superhumans can certainly help. Read on below as we take a look at a few of the qualities and how you can learn from Marvel characters, to become a better forex trader.
The Black Panther is one of the most devastatingly effective combatants out of all the marvel characters.

However, it’s not just in the planning stages that T’Challa excels, when it comes to combat the Black Panther is a versatile warrior, proficient in both armed and unarmed combat.

Planning is absolutely vital to success. Spending the necessary time developing and testing a strategy is as important as actually placing a trade – a hugely important skill to learn from marvel characters. Many traders fail in their endeavour because they don’t spent the necessary time doing their homework and testing and honing their strategies. Once a strategy is developed and tested it is then far easier to know how to react in live market conditions.
Furthermore, Black Panther’s versatility is a trait which all traders should learn to harness. Many new traders will find a strategy they like and start blindly using it in all market conditions. While this can yield some success in the short-term, in the long term this approach will suffer. Traders need to spend time identifying which conditions suit their strategy and most and learn to apply their strategy only in the most favourable conditions.

However, the most successful traders will tell you that losses are just part of the role and learning to minimise your risk, keep losses to an acceptable level, and move on is what will help you achieve long lasting success in trading.

For traders, learning to control their emotions and maintain their focus is of paramount importance. Many new traders fail because once they enter a live trading environment, the stress of having real money on the line and of dealing with a fast, changeable environment leads them to make poor decisions. Learning to remain calm and control your emotions will have an incredibly beneficial impact on your trading performance and help you make better decisions than those traders who are simply reacting blindly to the events of the sessions. A large part of developing this power, comes in having a well defined trading plan. It’s far easier to remain calm and control your emotions when you have a plan to guide your trading.
