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).

      There are a lot of systems that work..in the beginning. the problem is the technology has gotten to the point where computers can run a billion scans a second and would pick up on a winning system. and if you could find a winning system you could build a system that specifically takes money from the people using the winning system in the processes making it a losing system. 
      now if you had a trading robot and keep it quiet and didn't trade in such huge size that you could keep it on the downlow, i suppose it could make you money for years before someone programmed the system to front run your system. 

      with the recent popularity of systems there are tons of free ones that you can modify one little parameter here or there, so in essence everyone would be using different systems. this does hold some intrigue to me. 

      there are trading robots that can make big cash in the futures markets, so there is some hope for a forex bot. but forex is an unregulated scammers paradise. if it were me, i'd go old school and tweak the old richard dennis and bill eckhardt turtle trader system (10 period breakout system) and i'd try and avoid forex if you could. 

      but for doubters, once a month in Barrons, in the back they give results from the largest 300 hedges funds right after that list they give result for the largest 200 managed futures funds. about a quarter of these (managed futures) are traded purely on a trading system, no human input needed.

      Forex market is open 24 hours a day, but it’s not always active for the entire day. You can make money trading when the market moves up and moves down. But you will have a very difficult time trying to make money when the market doesn’t move at all.
       
      Forex Market Hours
      The forex market can be broken up into four major trading sessions: the Sydney session, the Tokyo session, the London session, the New York session. Premium Forex course of ForexTradingForYou always there to help you if you are interested.
       


      Actual open and close times are based on local business hours, with most business hours starting somewhere between 7-9 AM local time. Open and close times will also vary during the months of October/November and March/April as some countries (like the United States, England and Australia) shift to/from daylight savings time (DST).
       
      The day of the month that a country shifts to/from DST also varies, confusing us even more.  And Japan doesn’t observe daylight savings, so thank you Japan for keeping it simple.
      Now, you’re probably looking at the Sydney Open and wondering why it shifts two hours in the Eastern Time zone.
      You’d think that Sydney’s Open would only move one hour when the U.S. adjusts for standard time, but remember that when the U.S. shifts one hour back, Sydney actually moves forward by one hour (seasons are opposite in Australia).
      You should always remember this if you ever plan to trade during that time period. Also take notice that in between each forex trading session, there is a period of time where two sessions are open at the same time. During the summer, from 3:00-4:00 AM ET, for example, the Tokyo session and London session overlap, and during both summer and winter from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM ET, the London session and the New York session overlap.
      Naturally, these are the busiest times during the trading day because there is more volume when two markets are open at the same time.
       
      This makes sense because, during those times, all the market participants are wheelin’ and dealin’, which means that more money is transferring hands.
       
      Now let’s take a look at the average pip movement of the major currency pairs during each forex trading session.
       

       
      From the table, you will see that the London session normally provides the most movement.
