Think Like a Professional Trader
Listen to trading podcast, watch live trading videos and participate in the Forex trading communities. Conduct sentiment analysis by determining the overall psychological and emotional state of the traders in the Forex market. Pay close attention to how traders react when there are market-moving events or announcement of big news. Jumping on the bandwagon in Forex trading can actually help you to gain and mitigate losses effectively.
Learn to Recognize the Trading Waves and Patterns
Commit some of your time by looking at Forex price chart because the more time you committed on learning, the faster you learn how to recognize the chart patterns. Familiarise yourself with the chart patterns can help you to anticipate the price changes earlier. Study, understand the chart and always keep yourself updated with the market.
Come Out with your Own Trading System
After you have learned how to recognize the trading waves and patterns, we encourage you to come out with your own trading style. Develop a well-thought-out trading system suitable for you by using a combination of indicators and setting your stop loss level. You can come out with a few trading systems, try them in your demo account and use the one that fit you the most on your future live account.
Record your Progress & Growth
Keep a trading journal, set goals and targets to measure how effective your trading system is and how effectively you execute it. If the outcome from your trading system is good, keep it. It can be handy in the long run.
Forex trading requires time, studies, researches, and patience. Consistent passion makes trading easier. Remember, this is not a life hack or shortcut that makes you instantly rich.
