The markets are an ever-changing depiction of a country's strength against another. As the strength of a currency rises and falls, some traders will prosper while others will lose their profits previously gained. While these changes will at times be unfavorable for a country, they can also be unfavorable for a trader. Depending on your trading style, what is “unfavorable” will change. This is one reason Apiary Fund teaches a variety of styles: so that when it's unfavorable for your trading, you can try a different setup and hope to make profits from that.

I wanted to share with you the importance of your Forex trading education so you know right out of the gate how seriously you need to take it. Trading for most beginners is completely foreign, and the concept of the market is unknown. Having a steady program and or trading coach at your side is ideally the most important elements of a formula towards achieving financial success when trading Forex. For some reason, with being new to the Forex market, people can sometimes assume they can become successful and profitable by attempting to teach themselves and watching numerous free Forex videos online and reading documents that ultimately will always prove to be unhelpful. Let me tell you, this is not the way you want to learn to trade.

More Motivational Trading Quotes

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 5, 2019 6:04:00 AM / by Brigette Dumas posted in Success, Trading Psychology, Trading Habits, shawn lucas, motivation

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

First, let me start this article by saying “an inspirational quote a day can keep the negativity away!” Reading inspirational quotes can help anyone having a down day and if you try to make reading inspirational quotes a daily habit, it's far easier to keep a positive frame of mind when something in life happens. And knowing how life is, a trial of some sort is bound to happen, often. It might be a case of road rage, (I suffer from road rage myself and completely understand!) someone shorted you the wrong amount of change, it could be a loss of your job, social media rage, a loss in the market, etc. Everyday annoyances and trials have a lessened negative pull if you instead focus on the positive inspirational message. If you have been trading the currency market, then you know it can be very fruitful, although traders that have been trading professionally for years have days in the market of total losses. So, it's natural to wonder how they can continue to keep not only making money but keep their spirits up when they have these losing days. As a trader myself, I keep quotes pinned to the wall that I can see when I’m trading.

[fa icon="comment"] 4 Comments

Scalping and swing trading are very common ways to make your profits while trading. Each has advantages over the other and they have their disadvantages, too. No matter the type of trader you are, the other trading style still must be recognized as it can move markets in its own way and can catch movements that the other side would not catch. So, whether you trade like Shawn Lucas and scalp or if you do a longer term swing trade approach, knowing the difference and what they can add to your trading is important if you're adapting to the new strategy.

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Pips are the most talked about thing in FOREX. ‘PIP’ stands for Price Interest Point or Percentage In Point and is typically the fourth number after the decimal point, unless you are dealing with the JPY, in which case it is the second decimal point. Pips dictate, along with the trade quantity, how much money you are making or losing in the market. Most every transaction measures its success or downfall in terms of pips as well.

Everyone has that one pair. The first one they look at when they look at their platform for the day. The last pair you look at before signing off for the day.
