Before you start trading, it’s important you become familiar and comfortable with some of the common lingo you will hear when you’re in the Forex industry.

Keeping a trading journal allows traders to keep a record of their trades, thoughts, and feelings throughout the day. Trading journals are a great tool to have and making your journal as thorough as possible will give you details that go beyond the statements and profile statistics most brokers will give you as you go through your trading journey.

Previously, one thing we looked at was Picking a Favorite Market to Trade. When you are looking at trading, there are a lot of things to consider and one of them is what you are going 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

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.
