By: Kelly Price

If you want to learn forex trading online you can get all the information you want for free. What you need to do though is get the right education. Here are your tips for getting the best education.

There is a lot of forex education online but most of it wont help you win, it will simply ensure you lose, as its promoted by vendors who are selling junk products that will never work.

They will tell you they have found easy ways for you to make money but the reality is:

Forex Trading is not easy!

This really should be common sense, as 95% of forex traders lose but these vendors simply sell myths and products that take advantage of naive or lazy investors, for example:

Don't fall for Myths

There are huge amounts of vendors that tell you day trading works - it doesn't, or that markets are predictable - there not. The list is a long one and we have covered them in more detail in our other articles.

Many traders work hard but have no chance of winning if they did their homework the correct way they could actually win in many instances with less effort.

Get the Right Education and Win

Now we know it's not easy (it's not hard either though if you get the right forex education) let's set about learning currency trading online the correct way, doing our homework, getting the right education and winning.

The best way to start learning currency trading online is to look up forex technical analysis and forex charts and learning the formations and indicators

If you build your own forex trading system, you will have confidence in it and this will lead to discipline to apply it - you can buy one, but everything you need is free and here are tips on assembling it.

1. Use support and resistance and breakouts as the formations to watch for.

2. Use momentum indicators to decide if these levels will hold or break i.e. confirm your trading signal.

Keep your system simple - just trend lines and a few confirming indicators and that's it.

It's a fact that simple systems work best as they are more robust than complicated ones, with less elements to break in the brutal world of trading and the above will work well.

Applying your system. The following equation applies and you need to understand its significance:

Logical robust method + applied with discipline = forex success

Most traders can't apply their forex trading strategy with discipline and that's why they lose.

If you have developed your own you will have confidence in the logic and from confidence flow discipline.

This will help you achieve success.

The problem with most traders when learning currency trading online is they don't do the basics and don't have confidence in what they are doing and you must - trading success comes from within.

Only you can make yourself a winner and that comes from a total understanding of what you are doing and why.

The fact is all the basics you need to build a trading strategy of your own are free and online. If you do this you will have a system that can win.
