Either way, the path is not necessarily an easy one, but having an advisor is more likely to get you where you want to be faster and help you build your plan in ways you may not have thought.

It's important especially as a beginner trader to remember that the goals you set for yourself should be realistic so you can focus on the goals themselves and not apply too much pressure, causing the goals to fail completely.

Knowing how to balance your time trading effectively is so important as a trader so you can become profitable and manage your financial goals successfully. I am going to give you some tips on how to make sure you manage your money efficiently and effectively. You can start by making sure you have the correct trading philosophy or style with your personality type. There are often times beginner traders, especially, will waste a lot of time going through the wrong style of trading for them and their lives. If you are antsy and don't have the best history with patience, then it makes sense to focus on short term strategies. If you find you are more of a patient type then you are most likely more suited toward long-term goals.

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.

How to Manage Profits and Losses

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 20, 2019 6:02:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in shawn lucas, trading goals, stop loss, profits

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment

Money management is a core ideology in the trading world. This money management comes in both the form of managing your profits correctly, and correctly managing your losses. Managing your losses can come in many forms from cutting them short to stopping trading from the day. Managing your wins can come in similar forms, such as proper take profit placement and stopping trading after certain criteria have been met. Regardless of your management method for both wins and losses, having a system in place is required for your trading to progress to the level that allows for you to live off of your trading and even to have it just as a secondary income-generating stream.

As you progress through your trades and learn more about the markets and how they move, you develop a stronger strategy and sense of what doesn’t work for you.

The only real “least effective strategy,” however, is what works least for you personally.

One thing most people never complain about is having a side stream of income. While some economists theorize that fiscal utility peaks at a certain point, and everything after that becomes superfluous income, most people would argue they aren’t there yet. That point would allow many people to rewrite the narrative on their life though. So, what's the best way to try to get to that point? Arguably, it's trading FOREX. Trading allows for the flexible schedule, a more open work plan, and that extra stream of income to get you to your optimal amount of income. These are some of the goals you see and can trade along with at Apiary Fund.

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment

Trading requires analysis and instinct. There are different ways in which different people trade, but each way requires some sort of emotional investment and some portion of technical assessment. This is one of the reasons that Apiary Fund has you review your investor profile and rewrite your trade plan as you go through the beeline to funding. Knowing when to hold them and when to fold them is not only applicable to just a poker match; in trading, you also need to know when to carry on holding some trades and when you need to cut your losses and look for a new setup.
