Do you want more and bigger consistent profits? Then this article will show you how to increase your currency trading profits.

There simple to learn, easy to apply and will ensure your forex trading strategy gets a welcome boost in profits.

Here we’re going to assume you already have a methodology, you are confident in and just need to get bigger FX profits so let’s look at the tips.

1. Accept Volatility and Risk

All successful Forex trading systems understand volatility and use volatility to their advantage.

You can't have a profitable Forex trading system without taking calculated risks - and taking losses.

If you can’t accept risk, then don’t get involved in forex trading.

Many traders try to restrict risk so much, that they actually ensure they will lose – they’re simply stopped out all the time by volatility.

To make profits, the secret is to take a risk at the right time risk as much as you can.

2. Patience

One of the best ways to make big gains in currency trading is to be patient and wait for the best opportunities.

Many traders trade frequently and always like to be in the market in case they miss a big trend.

Focus only on the longer term trends and these don’t come around every week.

There’s no connection between how often you trade, and how much money you’ll make.

3. Don’t Diversify Your Trading

Most Forex traders are generally investing small amounts of money - and diversifying simply dilutes gains, you wont make much if you don’t risk much.

If you see a trade and it looks good, then risk as much as you can.

4. Have courage

You hear a lot about how important risk control is in any Forex trading strategy - but having the courage and conviction to accept profits is just as important.

Do you really need courage to accept profits? Of course you do!

When a trader makes a profit they get excited – and the bigger the profit becomes, the more they’re tempted to bank it before it gets away, but this is a huge mistake.

As volatility causes dips in their open equity, the trader snatches a marginal profit.

In many cases however, if the trader had the courage to hold the trade for the longer term they could have made a huge profit.

Many traders lose - not because they were wrong in the direction of the market - they just were stopped out by a volatile counter move or simply banked early.

5 Money Management

Taking risks does not mean being rash - here are some Forex trading money management tips to keep in mind:

• Keep your stop in its original position - until the move is well underway and in profit, before moving your stop.

• If you’re trading a small Forex account, don’t diversify - concentrate on one trade only.

• If you are following the longer-term trends, don’t exit a trade until your Forex signals tell you to do so. Have the patience and discipline to hold on for the longer term.

To make big profits in currency trading, you only want to focus on the best moves.

Don’t be tempted to diversify too much - have the courage to hold on for the longer term big profits.

Also understand and use money management techniques that will control risk - and at the same time, take into account the volatility that currency trading presents.

Currency trading involves risk - and you need to confront it and win and the above tips will help you do just that when you trade FX markets.
