Truths About Forex and Futures Trading

Truths About Forex and Futures Trading

Introduction:

 

I’m not a self confessed market guru, nor am I an expert when it comes to written communication and education. I am however quite the expert at understanding price action and devising trading systems and methods. I am successful, not only at trading money, but at helping people improve their trading. The sole reason I succeed in the markets is because I am patient and I trade setups that repeat themselves over and over. Trading is a sport, like chess, billiards and poker, trading is a game of skill and strategy.

 

My analysis and approach is typically very simple. I use nothing more than daily and weekly price charts, not a bunch of fancy indicators, no fancy bells and whistles. Basic Maths and Price Charts are all one needs to make money in today’s markets.

 

It’s my aim to empower you with simple strategies, and hopefully make a difference to your future trading endeavors. I ask you to open your eyes and see what the market can realistically offer you. If you have $100 in a trading account, you’re not going to make it, $2000 and you have a fighting chance, $10,000, and your chances increase because you have the ability to handle inevitable losses.

 

I will not be filling these pages with useless trading content, and bore you to tears with basic market theory which is available for free on Google searches. I’m going to go straight into the meat, and divulge to you, not only a successful trading method, but help you understand what will help make you successful in the market.

 

The Realities of directional trading.

 

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last 5 years, when it comes the topic of wealth creation , weather it be trading share market, the currency market, real estate or even simple business, I find that failure in these fields is mainly due to a lack of discipline or planning. A trader can be given a method to enter traders but the question is, can they stick to the plan and manage the trade properly? Does successful trading depend on your personality or your approach? The short answer is both!

 

If you’re failing, you are a victim of subconscious inhibitions and mental in-capabilities, which all result in “fear” and “lack of personal discipline”. There’s a reason Ex Marines, Army and Navy personal make money trading, I know 2 ex military personnel that succeed in trading, and they both have the same personalities. They are trained in the art of war and discipline. Based on this information, a novice trader, or failing trader should then revert back to practicing a mechanical method which induces discipline and a step by step plan. Even is that method breaks even, you are starting good habits.

 

The reason the owner of a McDonalds Franchise makes money is purely because he follows a proven system with rules and restrictions. Successful trading and investing is no doubt similar to franchise in itself. If you use a method to trade with, and stick to it, manage your money correctly whilst maintaining constant discipline in your approach, the chances of your survival is increased 100 fold.

 

What you really need to know.

 

I want you to understand that before you trade or use this information, that any trading strategy should be just one part of your trading arsenal. My systems work for many, and can work for you, but you must be realistic. All methods lose money, as well as win money, the best approaches are often conservative and trade less often. You are not going to build Rome overnight with this method, but your most likely going to improve your results significantly over time, if not your discipline alone. As I continue to reiterate, a trading plan and disciplined approach is the true grail of trading.

 

I have often found that traders are obsessed with getting on “every move”, when all they really should be doing is mastering an approach to make “some of the moves”. My success can be attributed to the understanding that trading is a conservative game of patience and strategy. It’s a game no doubt, with many players, all whom are usually much smarter than the retail trader. As “small fish”, we must develop skills to jump on the back of the ‘larger fish’ (banks), and ride the tide for as long as possible. That in itself is precisely how trading works.

Nice article. I totally agree with you. The problem is most traders think they're smarter than the system so they develop a "mental system". For example when the system says take profit at 15 pips they'll say "Nah, the market can go another 5 pips". That's actually greed talking and greed is traders' number 1 enemy yet most traders' don't realize it.

    • “When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.” Benjamin Franklin Since we always file stacks of paper forms by mail, our $2400 check was late coming.  It finally arrived on Monday so my wife and I are in high cotton ... for the six days it covers our minimum daily expenses, that is... In my opinion, all those checks are wasted money, but now most people want to receive  even more free money - not realizing that “whenever a new dollar is introduced into the system, it erodes the value of all dollars that currently exist.  Usually this is a relatively slow process, but now our politicians have gone absolutely nuts and very painful inflation is on the way.”  Free money aint free.  That check is borrowed from and owed back to 'the devil'.  I'm just sayin'           ...                 “If we don't listen to that scream—and if we don't respond to it—we may well wind up sitting amidst our own rubble, looking for the truck that hit us—or the bomb that pulverized us. Get the license number of whatever it was that destroyed the dream. And I think we will find that the vehicle was registered in our own name.”  Rod Serling   https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/the_slippery_slope_to_despotism_paved_with_lockdowns_raids_and_forced_vaccinations         ... Instead of just one $1200 time, did you know that certain parties can get a refill every night ????

    • GOLD SUFFERS MILD DECLINE FOLLOWING GROWING US-CHINA TENSIONS Gold (XAU/USD) dipped in the early Asia trading session on Monday as growing US-China tensions continue to influence demand on the safe-haven asset. Gold futures shed about 0.47% reaching a low of $1,724 just a few hours ago. The precious metal failed to hold on to its gains from last week’s session. Stocks, which are generally expected to move in the opposite direction of gold, were trapped in a bout of uncertainty with Chinese stocks suffering serious losses at the open of the session. According to reports, investors’ risk sentiment declined following China’s decision to formally table national security laws for Hong Kong and Macau as the National People’s Congress opened on Friday. This announcement caused citizens of Hong Kong to take to the streets in protest on Sunday. The protesters were met with heavy resistance from the police who fired water cannons to disperse them. The tension between the world powers escalated after Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, said on Sunday night that the US was nearing a ”new Cold War” with China following President Trump’s threat of ‘strong action’ should the proposed law be enacted. This threat was followed by the US Commerce Department blacklisting 33 Chinese entities on Friday. XAUUSD – Daily Chart Gold (XAU) Value Forecast — May 25 XAU/USD Major Bias: Bullish Supply Levels: $1,745, $1,763, and $1,797 Demand Levels: $1,722, $1,717, and $1,700 The XAU/USD was met with a soft decline to the $1,720’s level as projected last week. Gold has resumed on its upwards move to the anticipated $1,740 level. However, gold has to stay above $1,722 to confirm its bullish momentum. A break below that level could send the price down to $1,700 – $1,695 levels rapidly. Overall such reality seems very unlikely for gold in the time being.   Source: https://learn2.trade
