Do you want to learn to trade in the nearly two trillion dollar a day Forex market by doing Forex online currency trading? Are you concerned because you are a beginner and you don’t want to lose all your money?  Are you worried that it could just be too tough to make a profit?

This mini-guide to currency Forex online trading gives you an overview of the risks and rewards of Forex online currency trading.  Read it and you’ll probably see that if you’re willing to put in a little bit of work, this can be a great market to trade in – even if you’re a newbie.

What Is the Forex and What Is Currency:  Forex Online Trading?

The Forex stands for the foreign exchange. The commodity you will be trading online is currency. The Forex market deals with only one activity – buying and selling currencies for the express reason of making a profit.

When you are involved with Forex online currency trading, your money can travel around the world in seconds.

For example, when you buy (go long) a currency you strengthen that country’s economic position and raise the value of their currency.   If the value of the currency increases, the pip (percentage in point) goes up. The more the pips increase the more money you can make.

One of the nice things about trading the Forex is that you do not have to be overloaded with information, as you could be if you were trading stocks and bonds.

This does not mean that you should just jump in and start trading. There are still things to learn in order to be a successful trader. However, the learning curve is a not nearly as steep.

When Does the Forex Market Operate?

The Forex is in business twenty-four hours a day, almost five-and-a-half days per week – from Sunday afternoon through Friday. This means you can do currency Forex online trading pretty much according to your schedule – at any time during the day or night.

Keep in mind, though, that there are more advantageous times of the day to trade.

Because you are trading online you can access the foreign exchange from anywhere in the world where there is an Internet connection.

How Much Does It Cost to Get Started?

Most people who learn Forex online currency trading start with a small account, so they do not risk a lot of money. You can start an account with as little as three hundred dollars.

And, unlike trading stocks, most Forex brokers do not charge a commission. This means you can earn more money from your successful trades and lose less on your losing trades. These savings can really add up over the course of a year.

How Can You Learn Forex Online Currency Trading?

Some people try to learn by signing up at an online brokerage account. If you’re new to trading it can even be a bit confusing picking the best broker because although brokers do not charge commissions, they control the spread between the bid and the ask on the currency pairs that are traded. Bottom line is that the spread affects the amount of profits and / or losses in your account.

That’s why a lot of newbies like to find a good source of quality information such as a highly recommended eBook or video course.

If you’re interested in trading in the Forex market, you need to know how to make the best decisions possible so you can make the most money possible from your investments. Too many people, however, don’t know how to make wise buying and selling choices in the currency market so they miss out on these opportunities. To prevent that from happening to you, you should understand the benefits of the Forex forecast trading system. Below are a few of those benefits are explained.

Logical Not Emotion Decisions

One of the biggest problems with the human capacity for making trade decisions (or any type of decision for that matter) is the role of emotions. For all of our logical abilities, the choices we make in life are more often guided by our hearts than our heads. With investments, this is usually a bad idea. That’s because the two biggest emotions impacting our investment decisions are fear and greed.

If you use the Forex forecast trading system, emotions are not part of the calculations. Instead, the forecasts are made based on logic and evidence. The result is that you’re going to get much higher accuracy levels.

Current Data is Not Sufficient

Beginning Forex traders sometimes use stories about the currency market or about the economic news from other countries to make their currency investment decisions. Unfortunately, this is a bit short-sighted. Obviously, current events are going to have an impact on the ups and downs of currency value. However, what is happening today is only going to be a small part of the picture.

Using a Forex forecast trader is a better choice because they don’t just look at today or yesterday to make decisions. They can look at the history of these movements to determine trends and those trends can help you turn a small investment into a lot of return in a short period of time. Unfortunately, humans rarely can determine trends without the help of a computer.

Programs Understand Human Psychology

By programming a Forex forecasting system with information on past trends, you’re basically teaching it the basics of human psychology. As mentioned above, most people trade for fear and greed. Once you understand that, you can use that knowledge to help you make decisions. For example, if bad news comes out of country about their currency value, you know a lot of people are going to be jumping ship and lowering the value. This is a great time to buy and wait as the currency jumps back up.

With the forecasting systems, this type of knowledge is inherent to the decisions it makes. That means you won’t have to go through a learning curve of trial and error trading to understand these basic ideas. Plus, you won’t have to spend so much of your time glued to the news or reading the papers for information to guide your investments. Instead, the system can do all of that for you and can provide more accurate results as well.

Price action trading may be an alien concept to a lot of forex traders.  If they haven’t heard of price action, then they probably think that it’s some impossible trading tactic to grasp.  If you don’t know what it means, it’s basically a term used to describe trading without using indicators.  This is something that a lot of traders just don’t feel comfortable doing.

To give you an idea, there are a ton of traders who use moving averages.  You’ll see traders put 5 or 6 of them on your charts.  They essentially trade whenever the moving averages cross each other.  If you were to ask them what’s the fundamental reason why they buy and sell, I’m guessing they probably would have no idea.

This is really small potatoes compared to how many traders just overload their charts with whatever indicators that they can get their hands on.  Their charts are literally filled with arrows, lines, colors, etc… It gets so bad you can’t even see what they price is.  The funniest thing is that these are the kind of traders who think price action is too complicated to trade?

When you trade with SO MANY indicators, it’s kind of like trying to read the newspaper on a construction site.   You have all this incredible noise all around you, how on earth can you expect to concentrate on what you are doing? I feel the exact same way when you have all these lagging indicators telling you different things.  It just doesn’t make sense.

Many Forex traders are under the impression they can’t trust their brokers. And don’t get me wrong, you should investigate your broker before giving them your money. The most common complaint that confuses me is the claim brokers hunt stops.

Forex traders think by placing a stop loss on their trade, the broker will use this information to move price and take them out of the trade. After all, getting your stop hit is quite common. You place a trade and your stop loss… then you watch price move against you to take you out of the trade before moving in the original direction.

Yes, this is very frustrating. But I think your anger is directed toward the wrong party. I don’t think it is the broker hunting your stops… but the professional Forex traders. (After all, most of us are not trading accounts that matter in the big picture… so it is a little egotistical to think the broker cares about our small trade). There is a more logical explanation of what is going on.

Here is an example of why stop running happens. You, the novice at home trader have identified a good level to SHORT a currency pair. You place your SHORT trade and place your stop loss above the recent swing high. And things see to go your way… until Price reverses direction and takes out your stop!

Well, the big traders also identified this area to go SHORT, but they don’t want to jump on a train that is already moving. Therefore, they push price UP, knowing most people in the trade have their stop losses above the last swing high. Then they go SHORT.

Here is what this accomplishes. They get into the SHORT trade at a much better price with much more profit potential. They know the market wants to go short, and all those traders that had their stop loss taken out are going to jump back into the market… creating momentum. The big traders that move them markets now make more profit, faster.

So you see, stop running is much bigger than just you and me. This is what the professional Forex traders are doing to make more money. I think it is shortsighted to focus on the brokers and more accurate to focus on the big Forex traders.

This is just one example of how learning price action Forex trading can give you insight into what the big Forex traders are doing. This is important to know because they are the ones moving price. Price on your chart gives you insight into what they are doing and which way they want to trade… which you can use to trade WITH the pros, and not against them.

So, stop pulling your hair out and blaming your broker. That is not going to help you make more money trading Forex. Learn to read price action and turn stop hunting by the pros to your advantage. The next time you see a perfect trade setup that reverses to take out the previous swing high or swing low… join the big traders for more profits faster!

The secret of success in foreign exchange trading is the development of good Forex trading strategies. A good trading strategy enables the trader to maximize his profit while minimizing his losses.

How do you develop effective Forex trading strategies? First, create one that operates on a few simple rules. Simple strategies have a higher chance of success than complicated ones. One good strategy is the ‘breakout’ method. In this method, the trader sets a price range then trades the currency pair when it breaks out of the range. You can set your Forex robot to trade using this strategy by asking it to buy when the price reaches the upper end of the range and sell when the price reaches the lower end of the range.

Second, a good strategy looks at long-term trends. Focusing on the long-term will generate higher profits for the trader. When you spot a long-term trend, you should then use daily and real-time charts to spot trading possibilities.

Third, a good trader integrates time management into his strategy. Automated trading software may help execute trades but it is ultimately up to the trader to set a long-term strategy for the Forex robot to follow.

There are many sites where a Forex trader can pick up strategies to try. One sample strategy involves the use of slow moving averages (moving averages are the average price over a given period of time). Using multiples of seven (7, 14, 21), enter trading when the 7 slow moving average goes through 14 and above 21. At this point, buy or sell the currency pair in the direction of the 7 slow moving average. Exit the market when the 7 slow moving average touches the 21 slow moving average on the chart. You can also program this strategy on your Forex robot.

There are a multitude of other strategies you can try online. Or you can develop your own strategies when you have developed sufficient proficiency. But the important thing to remember is that Forex trading strategies, no matter how effective, are no guarantee of profitability.

This foreign exchange tutorial will go over the basics of what you will need to do to make a start with forex trading. Obviously, the ultimate aim is for you to make money – and lots of it! You’ll do this by predicting the rise and fall of one currency against another; with this knowledge, you’ll be able to open and close your trades at the right moment, and make a profit.

Learning to be a successful forex trader from scratch takes time, but there are ways of speeding up the learning process. If you are going to do all your own market analysis, you will need a good introductory program that covers all the basics. This would include:

– understanding the general principles of currency trading, particularly managing your account, trading margins, and  the cost of the spread and how to allow for it

– technical analysis: learning how to recognize emerging trends in the market, understanding the different types of charts and learning how to interpret them so that you can make a profit as the market moves

– fundamental analysis: national or international economic events will directly impact on currency values, and you need to understand how to read these events and their likely impact

– learning out how to protect your trades with stops, thus minimizing your risk

– being able to apply your system without allowing your emotions to interfere with your judgment. The most common fault line here is allowing losses to create fear, thus affecting your chances of earning profits in the long term

A forex trading online forum can be a good starting point, where you can learn lots of tips and tricks from members, both about general market related issues, and also about specific trades. This can also be a great place to go if you have issues you are unsure of, as you can ask your own questions. You will find many of these forums on the internet.

You have to remember however that forums do have some drawbacks. One problem is that the advice and opinions you get will often be very contradictory. There are many ways to trade forex profitably and each will have its own merits, but trying to combine different systems often will not work. Each trader will have their own approach, and it can be very confusing when you get advice from several different people, each coming from a different angle. It is often wise to develop your own system and stick with it.

The other potential problem with getting advice from forums is that you know nothing about the people posting. Even someone who sounds very experienced and knowledgeable may have in reality only used a demo account and never actually made a real trade at all. A very active forum contributor may spend more of his or her time posting on forums than trading forex so is really an expert poster rather than an expert trader.

Starting out in forex trading without a solid grounding in the basics can lead to losses rather than profits, and relying on free guides or forums has its own risks.  A great way to increase your chances of success is by using a reliable expert signals service. This way you do not have to analyse the market yourself, and instead leave the judgement calls to the real forex experts.

The key to picking the right signals service is in their track record. Do your research, find a reliable and trustworthy signals service, and you will have a great head start.

Forex robot trading is popular but ends in disaster for most Forex traders for the following reasons. The automated route to profit sounds attractive, just pay $100 or so sit back and make money with no effort and get an income for life. Anyone who is naïve or stupid enough to try this route to profits, gets taught some respect by the market in the form of an equity wipeout.

You don’t get rich with no effort and paying $100! If it were that simple to make money everyone would trade and no one would work.

You are going to say, I have seen the track records and all the robots make money!

Sure they do, but dig a little deeper and most Forex Robots present simulated track records backwards knowing the closing prices and that’s easy. Others present what they say are real results but without independent verification.

Traders today seem to think they can just walk into Forex markets and make huge gains but the facts show 95% of traders lose and in terms of automated Forex robots its 100%.

To be fair there are some Forex robots that make money but there not the 100 or 200 buck ones that claim they can double your money every month with no drawdown.

Traders should treat the market with respect and get a decent Forex education and learn skills. This is the way to make money in life and it’s the way in Forex trading. If you do this you will find that the rewards for your efforts are huge.

Many currency traders are starting to take note of the Forex Autopilot Software retailed by Marcus Leary. I had purchased this program at the very early stage of its release, and I am still using it on my Metatrader 4 platform today. It is designed to run on complete autopilot, monitoring the price charts and opening, monitoring, and closing trades all by itself.

1. Why Was The Forex Autopilot Software Programmed?

Anyone who has tried making money from the foreign exchange markets know how difficult and time-consuming it can be. There are fundamental and technical analysis skills to learn, as well as many complicated technical analysis tools available that can become very confusing. Forex Autopilot is made to monitor the markets and open trades when the market meets the system’s criteria that are programmed in the bot.

2. My Experience with Using the Software

Forex Autopilot has a fixed take-profit level that you will learn how to set in the instruction manual. You can tweak this setting according to your own liking, but it is highly recommended that you leave the settings at default for maximum profitability.

The software has an internally programmed stop-loss level, but it does not set a stop loss level after entering its trades. I am glad that it does this since it prevents stop-hunting by brokers. Forex Autopilot will automatically close losing positions by itself once the price moves beyond its internally programmed stop-loss level.

3. What Are Other Benefits of Using Forex Autopilot?

With this software, I no longer let my emotions affect my trading results. Before I started using this program, I would often hold on to losing positions for far too long and close them for a bigger loss. This is a common problem amongst traders that can be eliminated with automated software.

Easily Trade Forex Online-Review

Are you having difficulty understanding how to easily trade forex online? …even so much that you’re willing to give up on trading the forex all together?

Well if you’re any thing like me I was sick and tired of losing in the market and decided to go at it alone, so I got myself some forex lessons from Baby Pips, and some software to handle my technical analysis, opened up a forex account and begin to trade. Oops! Did I do that! …with in the first 72 hours I had lost 80% of my trading capital. I immediately stoped trading and went back to school. Just as I had expected, it wasn’t that, I knew my stuff!

I figured that maybe it was the trading system or software that I was using, so I got involved in some more forex programs, some of which made me money and lost me money. All in all I gained about 60% of my trading capital back, but I could never get completely out of the whole because, I couldn’t constantly make a profit. I was taking way to many losses to git ahead of my break even point.

Still determined to get out of the whole and have a successful forex trading carear, I came across a System that was very informative, and supportive. Not only that, it helped me get out of the red and back into the black on my trading statement, and for the most part it did it all on auto pilot.

Pros:

One the best things about this system is that it works 24/5 while you’re sleep. This was huge for me, because I’m very busy and during the crazy hours that the forex has its best trades, I never miss. I get to cash in on those profits as well, allowing me to effectively manage and maximize my trading time. I just set it and forget it!

Another thing that really made the difference is the ongoing support and video chat meetings that the program has. While the technical analysis is by far one of the best that I’ve seen. Nothing takes the place of the fundamental analysis from the expert advisors, and trading community abroad, that allows me to factor in global events that affect the market and my trading style. Knowing the technical and fundamental aspects of the market allows me to set the style of trading most effective in that market condition.

Cons:

This system has solved about 80% of my trading problems, and I still have about 20% of my trading problems still unresolved. Then again, I’m not trading as a career nor am I putting as much time into applying what I’ve learned, so I may just never have a almost perfect system to trade.

Conclusion:

I’m very happy with this system and it’s made my life a lot less stressful, knowing that I’m actually making money instead of losing money…While it hasn’t solved 100% of my trading problems, it has indeed corrected my negative trading account and constantly makes money for me with ease, which is more than I can say for all the other forex trading systems and programs that I’ve tried. It definitely allows you to trade the forex with ease!
