Useful Tips For Forex Beginners

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


For all the newbies out there, our team of experts at FxNet have written down some useful tips that can improve your day-to-day trading. Please see below:



Always put a Stop-Loss to your order



Trading without stop-loss is one of the most common and expensive mistakes of beginning traders. Always set a stop-loss to the amount you are willing to loose for every trade, otherwise you will see your account getting wiped out in a short period of time.



Always put a Take-Profit to your order



Not entering a take-profit can be just as dangerous as not entering a stop-loss. If you don’t enter profit targets and you just wait until it “feels” right to close the trade, then it can easily reverse and turn into a losing trade.



Don’t put too tight or too wide Stop-Loss



Depending on your trading style as well as your time of trading, you should always adjust the width of your SL accordingly. In general, during news trading your stop loss should be wide enough to absorb the market volatility and any spread widening that might occur. Trading news with stop loss of 10 pips is almost always a losing trade. During normal market conditions, you should use wider stop losses for longer timeframes and tighter for smaller timeframes.



Don’t risk too much of your capital at once



Another common mistake for new traders is risking too much capital on a single trade. In general, you shouldn’t risk more than 5% of your capital on a single trade. This way, you would have to have 20 consecutive losses your account to be wiped out.



Have a proper risk-reward ratio



Choosing a risk-reward ratio depends on your trading style, but it should never fall below 1:1. A 1:1 ratio means your stop-loss and take-profit is of the same width (for example 20 pips SL and 20 pips TP). In this case, you would need at least half of your trades to be successful in order to break even. A 1:2 ratio means your take profit is twice of stop loss (for example SL 20 pips and TP 40 pips). In this case you would need only one third of your trades to be successful.



Focus you attention on selective currency pairs



Don’t try to trade on a large amount of currency pairs. If you stick to a few pairs then you will better understand their characteristics by studying their history and you are more likely to predict their movement.



Trade with logic and analysis, not with emotion and hunches



Being a successful trader simply means increasing your probability to win than to lose. Trading without some basic technical analysis or a trading system is not much different than gambling. There are many ways to increase the probability for a trade to be successful. Knowing even the most basic tools of technical analysis and being able to spot buying and selling signals can greatly enhance your trading experience as well as your profits.



Best of luck and kind regards,


The FXNET Team.

dont scalp on your first live account. The complicated nature of these approaches means that rookie traders can get eaten alive, so only veteran traders with nerves of steel should consider playing the currency exchange market at any scale. unless you're know what you're doing scalping method are dangerous strategies to start out. perhaps many new traders willing to double their account overnight. the most important thing is, not all brokers are capable to handle scalping strategies, I've done these research for years among many brokers, and my last discovery are with Tickmill ECN account, it apprear give better result among other brokers I held with, while implementing exact same trading strategies (EA).

      Statements from two ECB officials put some downwards pressure on the euro. Both Villeory and Constâncio voiced concerns over the euro’s rally, saying that it’s a source of uncertainty given that this movement goes against the fundamentals. Constâncio added that the ECB’s monetary policy could remain loose for the long term.
      The upswing to 1.2288 was brought about by the Bank of Canada. The central bank increased its key rate by 25 base points to 1.25%. Governor Steven Poloz said that the banks decisions depend on current economic decisions. After this news, the euro slipped to 1.2165 (-123 pips).

      The main target was reached very quickly. The pair dropped without hindrance to 1.2196, followed by an upwards rebound to 1.2288 and the beginning of a head & shoulders model. I don’t think this model will complete its formation today though, as I’m not expecting the price to reverse once the neckline is broken through. In Asia, the euro is trading above 1.22. The range of 1.2188 – 1.2195 that I’ve highlighted has already lost its relevance.
      So, what can we expect today?
      Hourly cycles are signalling a continued decline for the euro. The daily candlestick for 17/01/18 is also suggestive of a declining euro. Moreover, it has both a long body and wick. The euro’s decline stopped at the 90th degree despite the reversal zone being between the 112th and 135th degrees.
      The trend line extended from 1.2323 runs through 1.2248, where the 67th degree currently sits. My forecast is expecting a drop to the 45th degree, but we could see the trend line being tested. How can one enter the market given the current situation? To keep risk to a minimum, I’d look at selling from the 45thand 67th degrees with a stop level above 1.2300, so that the overall risk doesn’t exceed your calculated risk. You could place a stop level above 1.2323, but by increasing the stop, the lot will decrease. The likelihood of the stop will decrease, but so will the level of profit should there be a positive outcome.

      Hi guys. Speaking of Forex trading BROKER,
      I am currently using a very interesting free service that I highly recommend.
      I do not usually sponsor other sites, but in this case, I think it's beneficial to do it.
      Since I became a premium member of the www.sharingtrading.com community, I have received many free trading services like trading signals, technical analysis, strategies, training with a coach, video courses, indicators, including that of a simulation tool for testing the broker accuracy.
      In fact, this last is provide by www.endoftrade.com (which is another site), but sharingtrading sends you codes to get a month of free subscription with it it allows you to simulate your trades just closed and see if the number of pip won or lost was correct.If you are interested in the offer, take a look at this link: http://sharingtrading.com/best/brokers/
