Become a Better Trader

Recommended Posts

Becoming a good Forex trader isn't an easy task. I too am still trying. After many struggles I am becoming a good trader. My struggles and fails actually helped a lot. Only thing I did correct was not giving up no matter what.

The best trader is the one who selects best broker according to me. I have invested much in various account and trusted many brokers but I never earned much as I do with my present broker.

Keep learning, must know that forex trading is one long term business, temporary lost is the foundation of future success. So survival and learning are top important things for new ones.

In my opinion, successful trade need rich experience and learn lessons from past failure, it's impossible for new ones to understand market trend and predict movement correctly.

Traders must have an edge to be profitable. The traders that have discipline, have done their homework about historical price action, and stay in control of their emotions will make money.

This is really meant to be a "Mindset" or in the Psychology Thread, but I was not sure if any beginners would see it there.

 

I am hoping other experienced traders will weigh in with a tip or two.

 

Never trade when you are sick, tired, or in an emotional funk.

Always, always, always use a stop.

Don't stress about trades you missed. You can't lose what you never had.

This is simply one part you have defined here. lack of knowledge and awareness is also another part than needs to be consider before starting trading.

Develop a plan.

As one goes on their trading development journey and they are exploring a variety of markets, timeframes, and methodolgies - you'll need to develop a plan. The plan doesn't have to be some objective extremely specific set of rules. It can be a loose set of guidelines that makes sense to you that gets refined over time with your experience. The goal is to start acting consistently so you can get consistent results.

There will probably be times that you violate the plan for whatever reason and I think that is normal, especially for more discretionary plans. But the key is to consciously violate it rather than getting lost in the throws of the market or in ones emotions. If you are consciously violating the plan you will note it in your daily review and over time you will collect enough data that may or may not indicate that the violation improves your plan.

Develop a plan today.

This is the key component. If you have a good trading plan, while working when sick isn't advisable, you should still be make the same trades as you would if you weren't sick. Your mental judgement shouldn't be impaired to a degree that you won't follow your plan, if so then yeah, don't work.

How to develop correct and risk conservative trading plan? What are the main pillars that any trading plan should rest upon? I just don't know where to start, just scalping with Hotforex making 30-40 dollars daily. But frankly I want more.

    • the one that you study hard about 
    • Good Morning to all Gentlemen and Ladies. I've had a minor favor and is new to this forum at present. My request would be, could someone explained to me in a meek manner on how the calculation is dealt with? For instance, how do you calculate the TPO above/below the POC? Is it calculating by the means of the alphabets starting from "the POC or above" it?  Looking forward to hearing some response from anyone with a senior of experience in the application of Market Profile. Thank you in advanced!
    • Near Term Outlook Unchanged as AUDUSD Trades Weaker   AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 22 The Aussie is holding weaker so far with the yuan softer on the day on a softer note for the equities and treasury yields. However, yuan has a relative effect on USD as the PBOC fixed the yuan weaker again today, reaffirming the notion that they will allow the currency to weaken but not too quickly.   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 0.7205, 0.7085, 0.6827 Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620   AUDUSD Long term Trend: Bearish But as seen in the daily picture above, the near-term picture in AUDUSD remains unchanged despite the pair slipping to session lows on the level at 0.6748 currently. Both buyers and sellers have more work to do to gain more momentum to push prices out of the downward range since last week.   While the forex pair is experiencing a stall, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bearish.   AUDUSD Short term Trend: Ranging However, AUDUSD needs to break the monthly support zone on the level at 0.6676, which is currently providing support for the momentum on the pair at the level at 0.6748.   The currency exchange rate will most likely continue to trade downward and flat for today waiting for the required volatility to change the direction.    
    • Staying Within Previous Boundary EURJPY Continues to Trade Within a Range   %2> EURJPY Price Analysis – August 23 In today’s trading session, the common European currency traded sideways against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair was trading below the moving average 5 and 13 since yesterday’s trading session. We may see bearish traders pressurize the currency pair towards the level at 117.50 before the end of today’s trading session.     Key Levels  Resistance Levels: 123.01, 119.88, 118.33  Support Levels: 117.65, 117.50, 117.00    EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish In the daily picture, the EURJPY pair may most likely maintain the price range during the next trading session. Alternatively, a breakout may occur downwards.  While the exchange rate has been trading within the range of the level at 118.33 and 117.50 since mid-August. The trend is bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the medium and long-term.     EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish Today’s trading range has been going negative and more, and that’s below the last trading month’s daily average range. On the flip side, we may see a change in trend with renewed upward strength.   Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high towards the level at 118.33 where further buy stops might get activated. Although with the level at 119.88 resistance intact, near term outlook remains bearish.
