A very popular question is, “Is trading FOREX really worth it?" or “Can FOREX actually be profitable?” These two questions go hand in hand. If FOREX is going to result in a negative every time you close a trade or close out a month, it’s not worth it. If currency trading is only going to make a dollar or two a month, yes, that's profit, but is it really considered profitable to you? And is that profit worth the hours of trading you put into the market? The individuals who make others believe that FOREX trading isn’t worth it are typically those who started out, lost a bit, and quit. Companies like Trader on the Street aim to show those interested in trading that it can be worth it if you persevere.

Risk vs Reward in Trading

[fa icon="calendar'] May 4, 2019 6:00:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in Risk Management, trader on the street, beginner trader, trading goals

Trading has the appeal it has due to the reward it offers. Trading also has the dissuasion it does because of the risk it offers. With anything that offers significant reward, significant risk is going to be there. If there was a great return method with no risk factors, everyone would be well off and there wouldn’t be poverty levels. The risk you take as a trader and the reward you can receive is the same reason people go to casinos and play blackjack along with going to a race track and putting money on dog or horse races. The rush of dopamine when a good trade closes and seeing the balance in your account is great. The rush of cortisol when a bad trade is closing and you have a balance decrease gets the body going.

The Forex market is the largest volume market in the world in terms of money coming through it a day. It has 24 hour a day trading capabilities and requires very little money to get started in since it's traded on leverage. But how does this all work since you're dealing with two countries' money and the fact that what you pay and what someone else in a different country pays for a candy bar doesn’t change day to day? Trader on the Street goes through the way the markets work all while showing how to trade in the markets and how to account for the movements that are there.

At the beginning of your trading journey, you can expect a lot of mixed emotions. One of my favorite things to do when you want to get a good read on what a first time trader will be genuinely experiencing, is watching some of the Trader on The Street videos. I love being able to watch them because these are unsuspecting people of what they will find in the markets. They're people just like you that have never done this before. When Apiary Funds head trader, Shawn Lucas sits down and shows them how much money they can make with the right education and experience Apiary Fund can provide for you.

“The quote my LP is giving me has a much different bid and ask than your quote, maybe I should short the pair and hope to make up some lost margin if the market goes on a bear trend towards your quote.” This type of conversation goes on daily, probably not in your living room. It’s happening somewhere. Knowing the jargon of the trading world, and even more so, the specific security you're trading, will help you understand exactly what's happening and how it affects what you're doing in the markets.

Getting over Skepticism about Trading

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 20, 2019 6:00:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in Trading Psychology, trader on the street, learn to trade, beginner trader, trading goals

Skepticism is a big part of any new venture one decides to take. It’s also one of the biggest hurdles one faces when deciding whether to become involved with a certain educator, employer, or path one takes. But if skepticisms stopped people 100% of the time, then the world would be a totally different place. All the big companies we see today wouldn’t exist. Our favorite movies or books wouldn’t be there for us to enjoy, all because of the slight doubts the writers face when thinking, “Will this make it?” Trading is no different for many people. That brief doubt you encounter when thinking about trying it or that bad experience your friend’s neighbor faced a few years back. Thankfully, with trading, and some other like ventures, you can try it out before you pay. There are companies like Apiary Fund and Trader on the Street that allow individuals to watch and/or try before any risk is taken upon by them to see if it will work.

Develop Trading Skills

Developing a set of skills takes practice and perseverance. Trading is no different. There are a few different paths you can take to develop your trading to get it where it needs to be. Programs like Trader on the Street and Apiary Fund have the goal to teach individuals how to develop their trading through a multitude of ways. These include things such as backtesting, indicator knowledge and application, and market knowledge through experience. Being able to utilize these three will help you develop your strategy and trading to the levels you hope to achieve.

Backtesting is one of the most common tools and easiest things you can do when you first start your trading to get the best results. There are many ways to backtest, with the most common being applying all the settings to your chart you would use to trade and looking back at recent data to see how it performs. For example, say a trader is using a SMA crossover technique. The two SMAs would be applied to the chart and all the previous crossovers would be analyzed. How many pips on average occurred after each crossover? How long did each run after the crossover take? Are these trades worth the time for the gains currently or should I switch markets? This can be applied to any entry method, and with those questions asked, traders can maximize their return by strategy and pair.
