Advice to Begin Trading?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, I am in little confusion with Tradorax, in actually I want to start trading so I was looking for the good trading websites which can assist me in testing strategies, creating expert advisors or indicators. So, I have found Tradorax easier for me but after doing some research there were some bad reviews and good reviews about Tradorax. It makes me little worried about starting with them but positive reviews are attracting me too.

 

So, Please guys suggest me some good advise and also tell me if you have any personal experience with Tradorax.

To start operations in the forex market: Practice at least 6 months on a demo account. Start with little capital for a while, one is allowed to lose. and finally boot with good capital risking force necessary to make a fortune.

Don't do same mistake most new traders do. They basically jump into trading without proper understanding of what they are going into. I would advice you to take a whole lot of time to study and understand Forex. it took me 2 years of learning and paper trading. And it still takes me a long time to carefully analysis a trade before buying. So you need Time.

read books and follow market news. Unless you have a passion for the market, you may never know how to trade, because it needs time to learn and even much more time to trade. For now, study and do demo trades.

To the OP...

 

You've received a good deal of "cheer leading" here... keep in mind that misery loves company...

 

Who can say where you will be in a few months, but unless something has changed since the sun came up today, most people fail within the first year of live trading. That in itself is not a big deal. Failure... don't worry about it.

 

Keep this in mind: anyone that you take advice from today, will not be there to hold your hand tomorrow or the next day. Paying up for advice at your stage is a fool's game. Get some time trading live (where you have some skin in the game)... dude, it's only money, and you will discover some things about yourself that simulated trading can't provide. Nothing wrong with trading sim, but it's not real.

 

If your intent is to just do this for sport, then by all means... get on with your bad self. If you want to do this for a living, you are going to have to learn to change and adapt to market conditions. I don't think there are any amount of advisors that can help you with that... that shit comes from within.

 

Best of good fortune...

I kind of agree with your point, demo can't replace real experience. However, I was suggesting sim for OP to get the basics of trading. I believe you'll agree that what you're talking about is kind of a next level of trading which fits to a person who already understands the basics.

Like all things in trading it's system specific, but there are also differences in personality and temperament. If you are trading in the lesser time frames where decisions must be made quickly and you are taking multiple trades during the day, then simulation can be extremely helpful as a development tool because of the feedback loop inherent to that style of trading. For someone trading in the greater time frames that feedback loop is not there and simulation is not helpful at all.

 

Regardless, simulation can be harmful to one's development if they hang out there too long. If you train for months on end in simulation and then go live, most people will find that they have a whole set of new issues to deal with. To my mind, it's best to get that stuff out in the open sooner rather than later. That way you can work out these issues in tandem with your own system development. Your knowledge base that you are building will be more complete, and your thought process will be more mature (possibly in less time as well).

That is stating it very well ... much milder than I would put it of course :)

For instance instead of "it's best to get that stuff out in the open sooner rather than later."

I would have said "in my experience with a significant sample of traders, it's CRUCIAL to get that stuff out in the open sooner rather than later."

I think golden C 'voices of trading' conclude sim out the gate will save some noobs from the inevitable ... futile waste of time ... golden C 'voices of trading' never realize their trail map actually ends at "banned profits"

 

mits, re "I am currently trying to locate my favourite nutcracker."

kinesthetic amnesia has set in... check at the bottom of your right leg... just below the ankle... it probably has a sock and shoe around it. ;)

Simple advice is that, never stop learning. Even if you are in good profit. Always search for good tutorial for forex. There are so many websites providing video tutorial and brokers providing demo accounts for learning forex.

Demo accounts can be helpful in learning forex easily, it helps in testing any broker's processes as well. I have noticed that many brokers are contributing reasonable efforts in conducting weekly or monthly webinars to educate their traders, the good thing is that mostly these stuff are free of any cost.

It's been said all too many times: demo trading is fine for getting into this stuff, but you really can't expect it to be a comprehensive and sufficient learning tool, since using it you avoid one of most important challenges - psychological.

re: "Demo accounts can be in learning forex easily, it helps in testing any broker's processes as well."

87% of participants end up as lo(o)sers . They accomplish it in many different ways. When you see a noob placing inordinate attention on the 'interface' instead of his trade(s) it is always a very safe bet he will end up in the 87% looser bunch. Encouraging noobs to mess around in sim is bad advice.

At the beginning, noobs would be better off skipping the hours of interface training on how to place orders and the different types of orders, etc etc ... esp. since the important initial stuff can be learned in 5 minutes instead of ('free') hours and later any specialized orders they may use can be learned on the fly...

 

re: " I have noticed that many brokers are contributing reasonable efforts in conducting weekly or monthly webinars to educate their traders, the good thing is that mostly these stuff are free of any cost."

I won't take the time to discuss all the perils of these "freebies". For snicks, here is one aspect -

Please show us even one of these webinars that do not ( subliminally or openly ) attempt to train noobs on how to 'filter' whether to take a trade or not ... by advising them to establish 'rules'.... (rules that will be incomplete and inadequate in real situations btw ... and ... rules that 95% of them won't realize for months that they didn't and will never have capacity to follow consistently, btw.)

 

 

It's been said all too many times...

actually the ratio of posts hyping sim to posts critical of sim runs about 100 to 1 across all forums, etc.

:helloooo: ... if you're really anti -sim, you've got some catching up to do

i never seen a golden C who was against simn ;)

      We are doing a university job where we must investigate how banks manage their financial products that require trading, for example, they offer a fund, as they manage capital internally. Could you help me?

      Hi GUYS, Happy Wednesday!
      I'd like to share daily forex analysis from Followme, hope this information helps your trading.
      Today, Let's focus on AUD and NZD.
      AUDUSD is trading at 0.6761; the instrument is moving below Ichimoku Cloud, thus indicating a descending tendency. The markets could indicate that the price may test the cloud’s downside border at 0.6765 and then resume moving downwards to reach 0.6635. Another signal to confirm further descending movement is the price’s rebounding from the descending channel’s upside border. However, the scenario that implies further decline may be canceled if the price breaks the cloud’s upside border and fixes above 0.6825. In this case, the pair may continue growing towards 0.6905.
       
      NZDUSD is trading at 0.6447; the instrument is moving below Ichimoku Cloud, thus indicating a descending tendency. The markets could indicate that the price may test the cloud’s downside border at 0.6455 and then resume moving downwards to reach 0.6315. Another signal to confirm further descending movement is the price’s rebounding from the resistance level. However, the scenario that implies further decline may be canceled if the price breaks the cloud’s upside border and fixes above 0.6525. In this case, the pair may continue growing towards 0.6645.

    • Date : 27th November 2020.FX Update – November 27 – Sterling in FocusGBPUSD, H1Narrow ranges have been prevailing in risk-cautious trading. The USDIndex settled around the 92.00 level, above yesterday’s 12-week low at 91.84. EURUSD remained buoyant but off from the 12-day peak seen yesterday at 1.1942. Cable also held within its Thursday range. USDJPY ebbed to a four-day low at 103.91. The Yen was concurrently steady versus the Euro and the Pound, but posted respective two- and four-day lows against the Australian and Canadian Dollars. AUDUSD ticked fractionally higher, which was still sufficient to lift the pair into 12-week high terrain above 0.7380. NZDUSD posted a new 29-month peak at 0.7030. USDCAD remained heavy but just above recent 17-day lows. Bitcoin, which performed strongly this year on the back of dollar liquidity, found a toehold, but remained over 12% down on its recent highs.US markets will reopen after yesterday’s Thanksgiving holiday, but market conditions will remain on the thin side. President Trump said that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden, which may be as close to formally conceding the election as he will go. A sharp focus remains on EU and UK talks, with a face-to-face round reportedly taking place in London over the weekend. There are now reports that the EU parliament might convene as late as December 28 to ratify a deal, if necessary.The spectre of a no-deal hangs over proceedings, though the consensus, as judged by the ongoing stability of the Pound, remains for a narrow deal to be reached.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 26th November 2020.Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!The USD has remained soft in quiet conditions, while global asset markets have seen little direction. The US Thanksgiving holiday has quelled activity. Europe’s Stoxx 600 traded near flat. Most stock markets in Asia gained, though remained off recent highs. The MSCI World Index is also off its highs, but remained buoyant and on course for a record monthly increase this month. Copper posted a new near 7-year high, and while other base metal prices were also underpinned most remained off recent trend highs. Oil prices saw modest declines after recent gains, which culminated in a nine-month high yesterday.The Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!Sterling has seen limited direction, continuing to hold gains from month-ago levels of around 1.5% to 2.5% versus the Dollar, Euro and Yen. There is still no breakthrough in down-to-the-wire negotiations between the EU and UK, and there are lots of warnings of border chaos and, from external BoE MPC member Saunders, of long-lasting economic consequences in the event of a no deal exit from the common market.European Commission president von der Leyen said “we are ready to be creative” to get a deal while repeating that “we are not ready to put into question the integrity of the single market.” An Irish government member said that a deal was “imperative” for everyone.The steadiness in the Pound, the principal conduit of financial market Brexit sentiment, reveals that investors remain unperturbed. One explanation is the real money participants are sitting on their collective hands, positioning for an expected deal but waiting on concrete developments and details, while maintaining vigilance on the possibility of there being a no deal by accident.Short-term speculative participants, meanwhile, don’t seem to have had a fruitful time in trying to play the fatiguing myriad news headlines and endless deadlines that have come and gone. The latest and supposedly final deadline, is next Tuesday — December 1 — which leaves just one month for a deal to be ratified on both sides of the Channel. We expect to a deal to materialize at the last minute, just as the withdrawal agreement was seemingly pulled out of the hat at the ultimate minute a year ago. There may even be a fudged extension.Pressure on the UK government is intense. US president-elect Biden warned London that the scope for a deal with the US would be compromised if there is a return of a hard border on Ireland — which is what could happen in a no-deal scenario (the UK government would have the choice between maintaining a free-flowing border on Ireland at the price of breaking up the border integrity of the UK, and possible protests and even violence from loyalists, or breaking the EU withdrawal agreement, which would result in a hard Irish land border).A leaked Whitehall document warns of a “perfect storm” of chaos in the event of a no-deal in the Covid-19 era. There are also pressures on the other side of the Channel to reach an accord. While French President Macron has political incentive to put up a show of fighting over fishing rights, he is not likely to carry through on his threat to veto any deal as other key EU states don’t see the UK’s position on fishing as being unreasonable. France and other nations, and the UK, also need to maintain good relations for security and many other practical reasons.As for the market impact of a deal, much will depend on how narrow the deal is. The narrower it is, the bigger the negative impact on both the UK and EU’s terms of trade positions will be on January 1, particularly the UK’s.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Those who take quick and payday loans and refuse to pay them back are now hooked.   Normally, it is not a good thing to go into debt unless that is your last resort. We know that people are fond of borrowing and they seriously hate paying it back. Even when it comes to paying back what was borrowed, your creditor will become your enemy. Such is the nature of human beings.   Debtors don’t want to return money even when they eventually have means of repayment. If anyone borrows money and returns it, it means the person has a Godly spirit in him.   If people ponder the power of compound interest, they would stay away from loans. If you pay 1.33% or 1.79% interest per month on a loan, you will need to pay back roughly 16% or 20% per annum. And this will begin to compound as long as you don’t pay.   Most borrowers who are now in trouble have realized that the interest rates are eventually higher than the capitals borrowed. They realize that the creditors are using an indirect way to enslave borrowers (go and work for me, bring back the capital plus profits).   The banks themselves know that business environment is very tough and are now indirectly asking people to work with or spend the banks’ funds and bring the funds plus profits back to them. Many borrowers really have poor mentality and they don’t know the gravity of what they’re putting themselves into.   If a bank could lend out 1 billion USD per annum, it would reap a return of 150 million USD (at least on paper). Do you think they will forget about you if you owe them even a small amount?   Loans without collateral are now popular. But your collateral is your BVN – unless you don’t want to operate accounts again in the country.   I have heard people saying” Don’t pay to my Access Bank account again, but pay into my UBA bank account.” “Don’t send that cash into my GTBank account again, but send it to Zenith Bank.” It’s like postponing the evil day.   Ti iya o ba i tii je eniyan, iya nri nkan panu lowo ni (Yoruba adage). I literally means: If Suffering has not come to attack you, it means Suffering is currently busy with something. If you think you can avoid payment by abandoning the account you used to borrow money, you’re only postponing the evil day.   They cannot come for you when your debt is small, but the debt will begin to compound and compound till it would make sense for them to come for you.   BAD NEWS FOR DEBTORS CBN has given banks permission to deduct from funds a debtor has in another bank account. For example, if you borrow quick loans from FCMB and you abandon your FCMB account and you are now operating another account with First Bank, FCMB can make a request to First Bank, and the money you owed will be deducted once or gradually from your account at First Bank, without your permission.   Would you now keep money at home, so that bad boys will come to you to take their dues?   Borrowing isn’t a good thing, no matter how plausible it looks.   Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/
