How to become Successful at Forex Trading
Most people think that the Forex market is short and no way profitable.
They experience this because they hear about the currency market and think Forex is an easy way to make a lot of money in a very short time. However, for some case it is true, but for the majority it is not the case.
In the early stages, the first Forex trading decisions usually come from broker’s tips and recommendations, alert services, from forum threads or sometimes by the help of mutual trading friends. Then at a certain period of time, traders decided to research and study the market and started to find the perfect strategy to trade with. Traders develop or buy a new system and start to trade Forex with this method. Sometimes it results profitable, but when the method fails to generate consistent profits or has few losing trades which is normal, they change the system and begin to find another method or working system. After some time and after more try and more losses they feel frustrated and most of them give up and quite their journey of trading. They never get any success of from their trading and it happens to 90% of newbie or intermediate trades.
A few of them realize the necessity of trading rules and market research in trading business. They begin to understand that, a sound set of trading strategy is an important ingredient to make profits from the trading market. But if the rules or strategies are not followed, they will face difficulty to make benefits of trading with a good trading system.
When the actual trading system is developed and trading skills are successfully learned, a trader starts to trade perfectly. At some stage most traders encounters a possible setback, because of the change in trading market or for avoiding the rules. However, this is not a serious problem if good money-management is followed. Even after, winning consistently for several months, after a small loss, many great traders stop trading to find out what has happened. This is a kind of mistake and is again the ever present emotional element that plays in the backend of our minds. It is a mistake to think about consistent profit. Even the experience of losses, the trader must have to press on and keep faith in what they are doing.
Here are some common mistakes that traders often make:
This is the place where the real decision will be made about the traders’ future.
- When experience losses, they stop to trade altogether, instead of continuing trading and analysis.
- When they find a new system or read in a new book or find some tips in forums, they change their trading plan.
- They start to find out what really happened. In most cases, it is the change in the market or they did not follow the trading rules.
The Forex trader who will go on to achieve greatness:
- Who monitors the markets and start trading again, but invest small amounts. When they find the track again, then resume the trading normally
- Who waits for suitable market condition and began to trade again if they finds the high time.
It is obvious that, most traders experience this condition 2 or 3 times before they develop the trading skills to achieve their objectives. In fact, trading success depends on consistency, discipline, patience and most significantly on self-belief.
