What every Forex Newbie should know-Before  trading the forex markets!

  • Have a Forex Mentor who is actively trading the FX market.
  • Money management rules, to help you manage your trading capital.
  • Be discipline and holistically follow your trading strategy.
  • Money management rules, to help you manage your trading capital.

Now let me elaborate more on each of them:

Having A Robust tried and tested Trading System.

It does not matter what kind of a trader are you, the most important thing to remember is that you should develop a trading system that will help you know when to enter and exit the market.

Your trading strategy should also tell you in advance how much money you are going to lose if the trade goes against you.

Thin is very important to know because it will help you sleep well at night, knowing that your money is save.

In other words you should always make sure that you trade with currency trading systems, which incorporate a trading stop loss.

Have a Forex Mentor who is actively trading the FX market.

Majority of newbie traders, fail to make any money out of trading the markets because they make a mistake of either buying trading Robots, then hope that they will make all the money for them while they sleep.

The other mistake they make is to just buy Forex trading strategies then follow whatever trading instructions prepared by the creator and then hope that they will start harvest those Forex pips on a consistent basis.

The key to successfully trade the forex market is to pay for the services of a trading mentor who is also actively trading the Forex market.

Forex trading is a serious business just like owning any bricks and mortar business.

The only thing that differentiates success traders from 97% of losing traders is the way they manage their trading capital.

Successful traders never adds on a losing traders, but instead they cut their loses while they are still small, forget about the trade and look forward to another new trading opportunity, while losing trades based their trading decision on hope.

As already mentioned somewhere in the above paragraph, one of the most important tools to help you become a successful trader is to always trade with a stop loss.


You also need to know how many lot sizes you need to open based on you trading capital.

They will help you become a discipline trader, and help you overcome whatever challenge the market throws back at you.

Be a discipline trader who follow your trading strategy rules.

Assuming that you give 2 traders the same trading strategy as well as the same trading capital, then come back at the end of the month, to check how much money they make, the fact of the matter is that, they will make different profits and loses,  because we as human beings are unique in the sense that we are being affected by greed and fear differently.
