Forex Trading System - Beware of This When Choosing One!

By: Kelly Price

There are a lot of forex trading systems for sale and most are junk. You can find out if a system is likely to make you money by looking at one key factor which is the subject of this article.

Let me ask a question first:

Would you take driving lessons from someone who hadn't past their test?

Of course you wouldn't!

With forex trading systems however traders buy systems that have never been traded and then wonder why they lose. If you are looking for a forex trading system online they will all give you a track record that's profitable. However the way to discard 95% or more of them is - to look for the disclaimer below or similar one - read it carefully:

"cftc rule 4.41 - hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown".

What this means is that a vendor can publish or make up any track record he likes knowing the closing prices and simply put this disclaimer on it. Most traders never question it - buy the system lose and then wonder why they didn't experience the same gains as the track record.

If you are looking for a forex trading system then always be cautious when you see the above disclaimer - you have to ask yourself the question:

If the vendor has not had the confidence to trade it why should you?

This is a very valid point and you need to use common sense.

In forex trading to many people are blinded by greed and see forex as an easy way to riches but of course with the rewards on offer its not that simple. You can make a lot of money but you need to get the right forex education.
