“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.

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.

I thought it would be great to have a list of ways you can increase your productivity when trading for those times you might be feeling a little burnt out. I try to run through some things I can do to get me excited to trade all over again if I notice I’m starting to lack in my trading routine. The first thing I suggest is trying to wake up and get plugged into the market earlier when its most volatile, which allows you to take advantage of all that movement and give yourself time to research higher time frames! This gives you a chance to also go over price and time cycles, which gives you the chance to prepare your statistics as well. If you work full time and only trade part-time however, creating a work calendar will do wonders to keep your personal and work-related errands and to-do list organized, and you will feel less stressed out.

Do You Need a Forex Broker?

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 12, 2019 7:00:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in Broker, trading forex, trading tips, apiary fund review, learn to trade

An extremely popular, and usually first, question individuals ask when they’re looking at getting into trading is, “What broker should I use?” or even “Do I need a broker to trade?” Short answer, at least with FOREX. is no. You don’t need a broker to trade currencies. The longer answer is yes, though. FOREX trading is really just saying “I want to make my Canadian Loonies into Japanese Yen, then to U.S. Dollars, then back to Loonies and hopefully, I will make money in that process.” Banks and international airports usually have a teller where you can walk in and do this. For that, no brokers to worry about. Instead, you just have outrageous conversion fees. If you’re looking to get into trading as a professional and not just add a cool-looking 100 yen bill to a shadow box at home, you need a broker to trade through like Apiary Fund. Review these tips before making a decision.
