When you are trading, or learning to trade, in the FOREX market, it can at times be overwhelming. It is especially overwhelming if you are going into the process with no help. Help in the forex market can come in many forms from joining an education company, like Apiary Fund, or having a personal advisor help you out, like Shawn Lucas. 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.
Failure is bound to happen in your trading; not failure in that trading will not be a viable outlet for income, but failure in that some trades will lose. This is not something to be deterred by. No trader is perfect, trades are always lost. George Soros, Shawn Lucas, and Warren Buffett have all had a trade lose at one point or another. As the phrase goes, “It’s not how many times you fall that matters, it’s how many times you stand up.” Not everyone decides to stand up on that final fall, though. Those people are the ones who do not reach success in the FOREX world. But what are some of the reasons why traders fail?

In this article, I will explain what a beginner trader might experience their first time trading, and what that trader can learn in just one day of trading. As a beginner trader, you should start with a targeted time zone you'll want to commit to trading; such as a Day Trader whose job is to find repeating patterns and then exploit it.
You have precious little time to make income in life. If you divide life into fourths, you only have a quarter of your life – or 20 years – to really grow your lifetime earnings. Lifetime earnings are the collective income a person receives through a myriad of sources throughout the span of their life. The primary source of lifetime earnings is your job, but experts say that may not be enough. It’s becoming more and more important to use investing cash as a significant source for lifetime earnings.

Losses are part of trading. Nothing is bad about having lost trades; it doesn't say whether or not you're a good trader. What is important is how a trader manages their trades, and whether their win ratio is higher than their loss ratio. If you're wondering how to manage losing trades, our answer for you is to build a ‘good’ trading system that can provide consistent profit. Here are couple things that need to be considered when striving to make consistent profit.
“Trading System” and “Trading Strategy” are two words that are often used interchangeably, but have two entirely different meanings.
Sometimes it seems like the market is out to get you; every trade you make goes against you like some sniper waiting to shoot you down. Rest assured that you are not alone in feeling this way.
