The Golden Rules of Trading.
2020 is not a new year but a new decade! How exciting of time and as a Forex trader, we need to realize how important it is for us to come together as a community and share what we know in order to continue to grow in our trading journey. The market is constantly changing and evolving, so in order to be successful, we also need to continue to emerge into the Forex industry more mature and with the tools required to be successful. Even if you have a bit of experience in the Forex market, it’s wise to continue to educate yourself and practice different strategies. Here’s a list for you to go over and help educate yourself in 2020.
Becoming a Foreign Exchange trader is not as easy as some may assume. Going through the educational process alone can be a very daunting and overwhelming task and can stress anyone out, just with the amount of educational information you need to cover. When you start going through the Forex educational process, you will start to notice chatter of trading strategies or systems. To navigate through the array of Forex strategies, some basic guidelines you can use are:
In my opinion, there is no key strategy every trader can adapt to be successful and profitable when they trade Foreign Exchange because every strategy will be used slightly differently with every trader. I suggest going through all the strategies in your demo account, and really exhaust all options your brokerage company has given you access to. You want to make sure you feel confident when using your strategy and make sure you use it in the market and it comes naturally and easily.
Forex signals are typically offered by broker company’s, (in my case, that’s The Apiary Fund) professional traders, etc. There are quite a few advantages when it comes to using trading signals, and one of them right off the bat is you don’t need to worry about monitoring the market for entry and exit points. You will also get far better trading results in way less time.
The short answer to this question is: yes, part-time trading can improve your results just for the simple reason of your availability to dedicate to your trading career. If you can only commit to trading part-time in your trading career, that is perfect because you only want to dedicate your full and undivided attention to your trading career anyways.
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. Pips are paramount in the FOREX market and Apiary Fund reviews their importance because of that throughout their education.
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?
