Forex Trading - Can Anyone Succeed?

By: Peter Johnson
Can anyone succeed in forex trading? Absolutely - as long as that person has the ability to accurately predict market swings and trend, and act upon them precisely for minimum risk and maximum gain. Forex trading uses currency form a large variety of countries and forms a trading marketplace where trillions of dollars are exchanged every day. It is important to understand the different parts of the market, in order to accurately interpret it.

The majority of money traded on the forex marketplace takes place between governments, banks and large financial institutions. International banks make up 50% of the forex market. The reason being they have millions of dollars of their customer’s money to invest and profit from.

More recently commercial financial companies such as UBS, Deutsche bank, and Citigroup and HSBC have done extremely well on the forex market.

In fact a large portion of their revenue is created through trading their investors money.

To get back to the initial question, yes anyone can succeed, but it is recommended to trade via a forex broker. The reason for this is that an individual will be able to achieve more leverage if trading through a broker- they will be able to accumulatively invest larger amounts and therefore achieve greater profits for their clients.

Savvy individual traders also achieve significant success on the currency trading marketplace. The key to success as an individual is minimizing risk (as most individuals will have a set amount to invest, and fall back upon) and conducting medium term trades where profit potential is at its highest. The key to most individual currency trader’s success is forex trading software. Software such as the Forex Killer System allows trader’s to accurately predict market trends, and exploit them for profit. The beauty of such systems is they usually have a ‘demo feature’, which allows the capabilities to be tested without having to invest any real money.

Conclusion

Anyone can succeed in forex trading provided they have access to as much data and trends as possible, know how and when to act upon these trends, and can consistently achieve profitable trades- no matter how small they are. The idea is to have consistent small profits, rather than large profits and large losses.
