Humans are creatures of habit, as the saying goes, and traders are no different. If anything, a trader is much more a creature of habit than anyone. Crossover, buy; breakout, sell; new crossover, sell; etc. We fall into the habit of looking at one thing to trigger a response for us to execute a trade or set one up for later. These habits can be good or bad depending on how out there they are. Apiary Fund reviews hundreds of trading accounts and sees good habits and bad habits alike all the time. Here are some of the trading habits Apiary Fund has seen that makes for a successful and lower risk trading account.

With the stigma around FOREX, there are factors to consider. Now, these factors are not to fully dissuade anyone from trading in the FOREX market. An important thing to note is that with most negatives, there's a counterpart that works to your benefit.

You have to consider what is realistic for the situation you're in and how you're going through with the trading strategy you've set up.

As a individual going through the journey of becoming a successful trader, you need to embody your own trading “persona” I should say. I say persona because when you take the plunge and decide to be a successful trader you need to change certain character traits of yourself in order to be successful. Some people are visual learners, some people learn by actively doing the task themselves, and some people learn by reading all the information they can about the task.

If you’ve been reading and somewhat keeping up on the articles that Apiary Fund has been releasing, a lot of them have been talking about how while trading is a difficult field, but it is somewhat easy at the same time. The transition from that hard to that easy feeling is really just finding a nice strategy that you can execute with the time you have and the goals you want to reach. These can take time to find and reach yourself when starting out, but can be more quickly discovered by working and talking to someone who has been trading for quite some time and has gone through many strategies.

Investing Skills Can Be Developed

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 6, 2018 7:39:42 AM / by Shawn Lucas posted in Trader Development

Investing skills are developed over time like learning to play the piano.  You wouldn’t expect to play a concerto the day you first sit down at the piano, so why do people expect a great performance when they place their first investment?  It’s interesting to me that people put more time into learning an instrument than they do in learning to manage their assets more effectively.  The probability of positive returns is so small in music, yet we commit so much time.  Contrastingly, the probability of a positive return is so great in the financial markets, yet we commit so little time.  It’s an anomaly.  Let me, Shawn Lucas, suggest three things you can do to improve your investing skills:

Indecision In The Markets

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 12, 2018 12:24:36 PM / by Cassidy Lucas posted in Trader Development, Apiary Fund

One thing I’ve struggled with is indecision. While it is good to want to the best decision, sometimes indecision has the ability to freeze us – which is not so good while trading. Feeling stuck between two choices while trading can lead to lost opportunity and money. My father recognized my reluctance to make choices when I was still pretty young and has tried to help me recognize the value in making correct choices quickly.
