Forex Trading Review - What You Need To Know


No forex trading review would be complete without describing the most important aspects to success in the forex market.  If you do these things rights, you will greatly increase your chances of being able to earn a full time income with forex trading. 

price actionFor starters, you should be prepared for the emotional aspect of trading.  Many traders overlook this aspect.

I don't care what kind of trading methodology you use, if you can't control your emotions, you will have a very difficult time making money.  

One thing that you can do to make sure you maintain your composure is that you only trade with money that you can afford to lose.  I know that this is something you have probably heard before, but it's so important that is should be repeated.

You should also not expect every trade to be a winner.  I don't care who you are.  You have to expect to take some losses.  There has never been, and never will be a trader with a flawless winning percentage.  So don't expect hundreds of pips on every single trade that you make.  That's just not reasonable.

Having this kind of mentality can also destroy a trader's confidence. Think about what happens when every trade that you take, you expect to make money on it.  What happens when you take that first loss? You become so disappointed that it makes you a weaker trader.

What about actually trading?  You know, the nuts and bolts of it. Well, it all starts with getting the right kind of forex trading education. 

Think about how most of the successful traders have made their money.  There are a couple of ways you can go about this.  Either through technical analysis and/or fundamental analysis. 

Since most forex traders, obviously trade from their home, technical analysis is usually the best way to go.

When I talk about technical analysis, I am not talking about putting a couple of stochastics indicators on your charts, and calling yourself an analyst.  

If you want to truly be able to analyze the markets, there are two words which you should be able to familiarize yourself with.

The truth is a successful trader can look at a naked (no indicators) bar chart and be able to tell where the market is headed. I hope you enjoyed this forex trading advice.
