The Best Informaiton on dangers of forex trading

The Though Side Of Forex Trading

You are sitting in front of your PC. Your heart is racing, sweat is starting to pearl on your forehead and adrenalin is pulsating through your veins at the speed of white light. You have live trade on the very popular Forex Market and your emotions are going mad.

If you ever wanted to feel like pregnant woman ( no offense intended) then this just the way to do it. A magnitude of pips and candles and fibs is glaring at you from the computer screen. Your money is gangling around in the air with your perspiration and the only thing that you can do is to have faith that you made the right move with you're trade.

This is all very scary and exhilarating at the same time. Some times trading the Forex Market should be compared to teasing a hungry lion with an open cage gate. Sometimes it is just downright tough. Why you ask? Because your emotions are out of control and that makes you scared money and scared money always lose. Why would you lose your money when you are scared because you will jump out with you winning trades with small gains and stay in with your loser hoping that the market will not hit you stop and take your money.

How can you prevent your emotions form ruining your trading career? First off never trade money you can not afford to lose, you can not use money that you saved up for your retirement or study money for college, or any money that if it is gone you are in deep... trouble. That will make your trading very difficult, now you need a plan of attack to trade the market if you do not have a plan do not live trade use a demo account to build your strategy. Demo trade until you make constant winning trades and see your demo account grow then you are starting to get your emotions under control. The most important rule of them all never trade with out a STOP other wise you're out of control. If your system tells you that you must take this lost never move your stop it will only worsen your losing trade.

What must I have in place before I start trading live? You must have a plan of attack and have the strength and discipline to stay with your Plan. If you lose, you have to go back and check if you followed you strategy if not to not trade again until you fix it. Every strategy will lose sometimes and you'll have to learn that losing it part of trading. Learn form every lost you take, by writing down the fault why you lost, so next you will not make the same mistake again.

Trading is like exercise, jogging you need to practice, to be come emotionally free to be in control when you are trading. When you have your emotions under control then you will succeed and make yourself a great big bundle of money.

Good luck on building your winning strategy!!!!

Forex, A Week In Review - 3/20/06 To 3/24/06

We like to wrap up every week with a review of the previous week's trading. So, here goes.

Cable gave us a run for our money last week. We were able to end the week up anywhere from 100 to 200 Pips based on personal exit strategies, so we are not complaining, but the daily trading range has been very tight and very unpredictable making big profit targets was almost impossible.

It was important this week to work your trades, we were able to nail 3 out of 5 entries but if you were not watching and working an exit strategy, all but one trade could have gone against you.

If you were not using good trade management strategy you would not have closed the trade around 9:00 AM (before you were actually in the trade) and it would have gone against you for your stop loss. Remember, not taking a trade is a position, often time the best position.

For those of you watching our daily newsletters, we had another good week. We had three winning trades, although only one was for our full target, and more importantly no losing trades.

With that said we have nothing to complain about, going 3 for 3 with two days with no trades, remember taking no trade is as much a position as taking a trade.

And no losing days means we did not give back any of our gains and can add the full gain into our account for compounding. This is what the week looked like;


Short @ 1.7570, Stop @ 1.7615, Target @ 1.7520 & 1.7490

Did not fill either trade but had plenty of reason to get out of trade around 1.7530 on three separate occasions during the day, and there was no reason to not have protected your trade by at the very least moving your stop loss to break even. For 0 to 40, Pips on both trades.


Short @ 1.7540, Stop @ 1.7580, Target @ 1.7500 & 1.7440 - We filled the first trade for 40 and the second trade we closed at 1.7470 for 70 Pips.


Short @ 1.7490, Stop @ 1.7530, Target @ 1.7450 & 1.7410 - We filled both trades we an early exit at 1.7460 for 30 & 30 Pips.


Short @ 1.7460, Stop @ 1.7500, Target 1.7420 & 1.7380 - Missed entry by 11 Pips.


Short @ 1.7370, Stop @ 1.7420, Target @ 1.7310 & 1.7290 - Missed entry by 18 Pips. Closed both trades around 9:00 Am due to reversal indicator. Saved a 100 Pip loss.
