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.

    • There is no point asking this question as we know women have now entered most of the fields of business. You might remember this ball busting study which found that women make better investors than men, because they are more risk-averse. 
    • The stock market going up is not a reflection of a healthy economy as created by rationally minded entrepreneurs and investors; it’s going up because the people who have the ability to make it go up also happen to be the ones who’ll benefit from it the most.
    • Landora This thread illustrates a couple of things that humblepieasant hopefully/probably learned 1 day/short term trading is for the few, not the many.  Finding systems that optimize win rate with risks is formidable.  Finding such systems that are also self compatible is exceedingly rare. 2 posting is expensive.  ie It really doesn’t pay short term or long term to give if you don’t got... 3 the need for the kind of “accountability”hp mentioned above is - in a word - transitional.  ie Accountability needs to be turned and referenced inward instead of spread outward... 4 hp would have been much better off trading “a small "live" account through the end of January, then a small "practice account" account beginning February, ... then back live. ... 1 Don’t just look for an edge.  Look for an edge that is also true to your nature.  If an edge is not true to your nature, you will still never be able to make it work consistently. 2 Post what you are learning and see. 3 Post what you are trading and see. 4 See.  ... maybe decades later...

    • Date : 22nd May 2020.EURUSD – Rejection, Retrace, Sell-Off.EURUSD, H1EURUSD has drifted down to a fresh four-day low at 1.0886, driven lower by a broad haven-bid for Dollars as Hong Kong re-emerges as a flash point in US-China, and West-China, relations. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) rose to a three-day high at 99.62, extending the rebound from the 18-day low seen on Wednesday at 99.01. EURUSD continues to trade in a broad consolidation range near the halfway mark of the volatile range that was seen during the height of the global market panic in March, which was marked by 1.0637 on the downside and 1.1494 on the upside. Expectations are for the pair to lack sustained directional bias for now, though political tensions among Eurozone members, coupled with the dollar’s role as a haven, suggest the risks are to the downside, as demonstrated in the H1 chart. Below we can see that there was a rejection of 1.1000 yesterday (1) and a retrace of the initial fall to the 50-hour moving average (2), followed by the sell-off during the Asian and European sessions today (3).There is little divergence in central bank policy currently, with both the ECB and the Fed pursuing aggressively accommodative policy, with both Europe and the US facing significant economic headwinds from virus-containing lockdown measures. Both are amid the early stages of reopening from lockdowns.Always trade with strict risk management.
