How to Trade FOREX Using Automated Signals

It wasn't until recently that the average investor could participate in the foreign exchange market. Over 1.5 trillion dollars are traded on a daily basis in the FOREX market, which makes it very attractive for any investor. The truth is only 95% of FOREX traders ever see a dime when it comes to FOREX trading. Most of the money is absorbed by large investors and central banks.

Whether you are new to the FOREX market or are an established FOREX trader, traders are always in search of new trading techniques and systems. There is always a lot of different opinions when it comes to trading systems offering entry and exit points. A lot of them do not work, but yet at the same time a lot of them do.

Automated FOREX trading happens for a few reasons. One, not everyone is in front of there computer 24 hours a day and able trade at the most critical times. Secondly, anyone new to FOREX who finds it difficult to study the foreign exchange markets may be looking for a way to automate the process so that they do not have to figure out the FOREX market for themselves.

Typically FOREX signals providers send their signals via e-mail, SMS, or through a charting software program. Once the signal is received, if the account is a managed one, the signal will automatically execute the trade, if not a phone call to the trading desk or a click of the mouse from a trading platform will also execute the trade.

What to look for in a proven FOREX trading system.

When searching for a reliable FOREX signals provider, the very first thing to check for is a proven track record of success. If there is no hard data showing their trading success, then there probably isn't much money to be made and there signals aren't worth the money anyhow. A phone number to call for support or to ask questions is always good too. Having a phone number listed shows credibility in the trading system and that they are willing to share with you real results and their experiences.

There are many reliable FOREX trading systems available. Finding the right one can be a challenging task. Make sure there is plenty of support as well as a proven track record. There is nothing more discouraging than using a trading system that does not produce results.

Forex, an alternative investment vehicle, Part 2

In the first part of this article I have outlined 10 good reasons why Forex (Foreign Currency Exchange Market) is an excellent investment opportunity for anyone to make money, online, even with very little start-up money available. In this part I will explain how to get started.

If you want to make money with Forex, online, you have to think of it as a business and treat it as such. You have to get serious about it and you need to get organised. Initially, you have to 'go to work' just like you would in a conventional business. Set aside some quite, work hours for yourself, in a quite corner of your house so you can concentrate on your business without any interruptions.

Also, as with any other business or trade, you have to train yourself and hone your skills, continuously. The Forex offers an amazing opportunity to make money, with little effort in record time, however, you have to know what you are doing and you do have to put in some work. Just as you would not allow your 10 year old kid to drive your fancy, expensive car, it would not be a good idea for you to jump into trading the Forex without learning how to drive this 'vehicle'.

If you are a beginner spend some time on reading up on the Forex and perhaps find someone who is already trading successfully. Ask them to mentor you or allow you to look over their shoulder. Once you have some idea on what makes Forex tick, you should open a demo account with one of the many reputable online brokers. This is the best way to learn what happens to your money and your account in the real world without actually risking any of it. You also have to develop good record keeping habits. It's not a hard job to do it, you just have to be disciplined enough to keep up with it. Again, it's no different from a normal business except that the rewards can be much, much higher in relation to the work you have to put in and of course you can do it from anywhere as long as you have access to the Internet.

So, here is a simple list of how to get started:
1) Setup a quite corner for yourself as a work-area,
2) You must have a reliable computer and reliable connection to the Internet, if you can afford a second connection to the Internet with a different service provider than it's even better (I'll explain why in a future article). Also make sure you are comfortable and have plenty of light, a dingy, dark corner will soon dampen you enthusiasm,
3) Set aside some 'quality' time for you business the same time, every day in the beginning, you can spend less time as you get more experienced,
4) Find out more about how the Forex works, train yourself and find a mentor who is already trading successfully,
5) Open a demo account with a reputable online broker,
6) Start keeping a record of everything that you do and why you do it. The easiest way I found to do this is with a simple Excel Sheet(c) or something similar,
7) Analyse the results of your actions and see how they affect the balance of your demo account,
8) Make backups of all your records, I can't emphasis this enough, it's really, really important,
9) Revise your actions and record keeping methods then go back to step 4.

It may sound a lot, however, most of it is common sense and applicable to any and all businesses. It is critical that you keep a record of everything that you do, whether it's changing your chair or the lighting, a new trading platform. Whatever you do make sure you have a record for it and an indication of how, if at all, it has affected your trading ability. I have records of everything I do, not just for Forex, but for all of my other businesses going back 7 years! Now, that's a lot of record keeping but with computers it's real easy.

I think we have covered a lot in this second part. I'll go into more details in future articles. Meanwhile, go through this article and start putting my suggestion in to action. If you have any questions about what I've said above or need information on anything related, just refer to the resources and links at the end of this article.

Wishing you success,
