Become a Successful Forex Trader

By: Monica Hendrix
Anyone can become a successful forex trader from home, if they learn the right knowledge and learn how to apply it.

Here we will look at a proven way to make big profits quickly with low risk in global forex markets - even if you never traded before.

Step 1 – Work Smart Not Hard

In many professions you get paid for how many hours you put in, but this does not apply to the world of currency trading:

You get paid for being right.

There are many clever people who spent huge amounts of time building currency trading systems that are extremely complicated and clever, but don’t make money.

The good news is that everything about forex trading can be specifically learned.

It’s also a fact that the best methods are not complicated they are extremely simple. A simple system is more robust in the face of ever changing currency fluctuations.

A Simple system is also easy to understand and apply and this gives a user confidence, which translates into discipline, which is essential for online trading success.



Step 2 – A Method for huge gains

Let’s now look at a methodology that can make huge gains in currency trading.

The a great methodology for any trader to use is one based upon breakouts of valid resistance.

Breakouts are simple to understand and easy to spot, yet most traders don’t use this methodology, as it makes them feel uncomfortable.

Let’s look first at why it is so successful and a fact that most traders don’t realize which is, most big moves in currency trading start from new market highs, NOT market lows.

If you buy breaks of resistance to new market highs you can catch these moves.

Most traders can’t do this because they want to “buy low and sell high" and they wait for the pullback to buy at a better price, however the really big moves don’t pull back and most traders miss them.

If you buy these breakouts, you can make big profits and keep in mind “buy high sell higher" is a great way to make money. Yes, you have missed the start of the move, but the odds are on your side if you enter on a breakout that the move will continue.

To make money in forex trading, buy breaks of significant resistance and use trend lines and just a few confirming indicators and you have a simple, but powerful way of trading.

Step 3 Taking Risks

If you don’t like risk then you shouldn’t trade currency markets.

Most traders spend so much time trying to restrict risk, they actually create it and ensure they lose. They place stops to close or trailing them to quickly and are stopped out by normal market volatility.

If you want to win at forex trading, you need to take meaningful risks.

If you are trading a small account risk as much as 10% per trade and don’t move your stop too quickly. This will ensure you won’t be bumped out of the trade by normal market volatility and can stay with the longer term trends.
