We Should Control Forex Trading

Recommended Posts

Foreign exchange is an opportunity to make a fortune and in same time it is an opportunity to loose our money, we can make a fortune if we knew how to handle Forex, if we don't know how to control Forex it will destroy us, so we must be stronger than it, and if we don't know how to control it with our own hands it will destroy us too. So how I can be stronger than this ferocious beast? It is simply by learning, observing, and practicing.

people are ready to give millions just to see a few seconds ahead...

 

Even though we give millions we will not be able to see a few seconds ahead.. We have to anticipate and try to forecast the market. We should have a good knowledge about high/low resistance. But still it would be difficult. :)

Oddly, I don't get a sense of deliberate single minded focus in your tone that I would expect from "difficult". I DO however get a sense of uncertainty from you, as well as the obvious frustration... which leads me to conclude that really your in one of just 3 possible situations:

 

1. You don't really have a good understanding of what support and resistance levels are very likely to hold, and which ones are likely to just break away once the market touches them. If this is your situation, I would suggest you check out No Brainer Trades - Trading Forex and Other Markets Using Globally Identifiable Actions - Look around, and you'll find some great articles about support and resistance, and what to factor in when determining if a level is probably going to hold, or if it's probably going to give away and have price rip right through it.

 

2. You have allowed yourself to become very emotionally charged up during a recent trade (or series of recent trades) to the point where you went both long and short probably many times at the same level and around the same period of time.... and with each time you changed your mind, you felt more out of control, and more discouraged about your trading abilities. If this is the case, I suggest giving yourself some rules to follow regarding order entry, and executions. Even if you change your rules every single day...this could still be workable as long as you've considered how much your rules allow you to risk, and that you will be able and willing to follow your rules that trading day. Over time, with experience, you will find a better way to determine what parameters and risk amounts you are "comfortable with"...but until you have the experience to do so... your going to need to start with some hard rules on a daily basis.

 

3. You've probably lost a lot of money (or at least what felt like a lot of money to you).... and this further compounded the hopeless and/or disappointing feeling you experinced when you were totally confused and frustrated by the markets price action. If this is the case, you need to STOP TRADING WITH REAL MONEY RIGHT NOW. That is a pressure that can literally drive some to suicide, and you are clearly not anywhere close to being prepared to handle the additional pressures of real money. Nor does it sound like you have a significant edge at the momenth... though it seems you have some basic understanding of price action, and S/R...so you wlll likely get there if you want it bad enough. But until you can papertrade with some real, sustained success (probably at least a few months....ideally 6 months or more)... than trading with real money is only going to intensify your emotions...especially the bad emotions.

 

Take away the money, and this will take away much of the emotion. It will put you in a place where you can keep a relaxed, open mind, which is what you need most of all now as you try to learn how to read the markets, and profit from the opportunities that arise.

 

Good luck. You'll need it, and a whole lot more... but if you really want this, it's very possible for many people.

what is wrong with that? unless you are born with millions (or adopted by a movie star) you have to work hard...

you can be a part-time programmer, teacher etc, if you have necessary skills..being part-time trader is not different..you have to learn first. however, this does not guarantee anything because knowing and using that knowledge are different things;)

We can excel our skills by learning, practicing and doing it on a consistent basis which also requires a lot of patience too..

    • Very long time since I made last post. Thought about posting one chart. Stock name is masked intentionally as I am having position. My views may be biased. My way of viewing chart. Chart is self explanatory
    • Litecoin Price Prediction Today: Daily (LTC) Value Forecast – July 18   LTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bearish ·         Resistance Levels: $100, $110, $120 ·         Support levels: $90, $80, $70 Yesterday, July 17, the price of Litecoin was in a bullish trend. On July 16, the downward correction ended at the price of $80 price level. The $80 support level was the previous low of April 11 and May 6. The support level is holding as the bulls made an upward move towards the EMAs. On the upside, if the bulls break above the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA, the crypto’s price will rise and retest the $140 overhead resistance level. However, the bulls are likely to face resistance at the $120 price level.The MACD line and the signal line are below the zero line which indicates a sell signal.     LTC/USD Short-term Trend: Bullish On the 1-hour chart, the LTC price is in a bullish trend. The 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA are trending upward because the price has commenced an upward movement. On July 16, in the downtrend, the bears reached a low of $76 but pulled back above the $80 price level.   Yesterday, the bulls broke above the EMAs and commenced ranging below the $94 price level. Today the bulls have broken the $94 resistance level and  are approaching the high of $100.The MACD line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.     The views and opinions expressed here do not reflect that of BitcoinExchangeGuide.com and do not constitute financial advice.

    • CRUDE OIL Corrective Pullback Mode Remains    CRUDE OIL corrective pullback mode remains as more decline is likely in the days ahead. Support lies at the 56.50 level where a break will expose the 56.00 level. A cut through here will set the stage for a run at the 55.50 level. Further down, support comes in at the 55.00 level. Its daily RSI is a bearish and pointing lower suggesting further weakness. On the upside, resistance resides at the 57.50 levels. Further out, resistance comes in at the 58.00 level. A break above here will aim at the 58.50 level and then the 59.00 level followed by the 59.50.00 level. All in all, CRUDE OIL remains biased to the downside nearer term on pullback.  
    • I had used binance and hotforex, first one for bitcoin to altcoins and the second one for EURUSD and they also added BTCUSD and BTCEUR pair too.
