How To Win At Forex

Foreign currency exchange, the greatest game in the world with a daily trading volume of over a trillion and a half dollars (thirty times larger than the volume of all the U. S. equity markets combined), has it's share of winners and mostly losers. Do you want to learn how to be in the winners circle?


Like any game it's important to know the rules in order to win. You don't have to be a professional to enter the sport, but you should have a basic understanding of the game and how it's played. Most of this can be learned for free from the online brokerage houses who also give you free trading software so you can actually practice playing the game and gain your confidence and skills before plunking down your real cash in the big leagues.


As in any sport, the most important thing to do is practice before you actually play in the real game. I can't stress that enough. Practice, practice, practice makes perfect. The only thing it will cost you is your time. When you think your ready to step on the playing field, start small. Most brokers will allow you to start trading in mini accounts with as little as 300 dollars.


And now for what you've been waiting for, the secret to winning at Forex. You need to have a trading strategy. In other words you need to know what to look for and how to trade to make money. Work out a basic game plan you expect to follow and never let your emotions influence your trades. Rule number one is never to risk more than 2% of your account balance on any one trade. That way if you have a streak of bad luck you will not wipe out your account. Rule number two is that if you have a string of five loses in a row, stop trading real money and go back to demo trading until you have demonstrated success for at least a week. Only then do you go back to trading with real money. Rule number three is to employ strict trading rules that you stick to no matter what and do not trade wildly. If you preserve your capital from big risks you will allow it to grow steadily and consistently. Don't try to make a killing in a short time and you can reasonably expect to grow your account by 10% a month or more.


Remember to have fun with it and learn a little more each day. This could turn into a lifelong professional career.


Wishing you success,

Choosing The Right Forex Software For You

You might be looking for a charting platform, or a trading platform. You could also be looking for an automated trading program, or a signal service. You are most probably looking for some form of assistance to help with your trading. This is really the holy grail for a lot of traders who do not have the time or the inclination to sit in front of a computer 16 hours a day.

The best charting and trading platform is MT4, this allows you to also create custom indicators and expert advisors allowing you to auto-trade your account.

Provide a stable internet connection and power, and the EA will handle everything else for you. The problem is selecting the correct on…

Is It Safe To Invest In Shares Or The Forex

You feel yourself financially able and personally qualified to invest. You can meet the conditions of reasonable stability, reasonable flexibility, and reasonable caution. But nagging doubt remains. Wouldn't you really be better off with your extra cash in a savings account?
Or a piece of real estate? In short, is it really safe to invest?
Well, how much safety do you require? Since there are no absolutely sure things anywhere, safety must be looked at as a matter of degree. There are no guarantees of success in stock ownership, no guarantees against loss. Even the thoughtful, conscientious investor can be taken to the cleaners.
It should be remembered, however, that investment in stocks is a way of sharing in the profit potential of American industry. Is the American economy safe? It seems to be. Since 1900 it has been rising in productivity at an average rate of 4 per cent per year. Our Gross National Product is now nearly $480 billion. By 1965, according to quite conservative esti…
