Trading Signals for Online Forex Trader

by : Harold Hsu

There are many hopeful traders who wish to find a reliable online Forex trading signal to follow. These are usually people who don't have the time to learn to trade for themselves.

On the other hand, there are other traders who completely avoid all forms of Forex trading signals. These people are very skeptical and are very careful about being scammed by online conmen.

If you belong to the former group, this article will hopefully give you something to think about.

What Are Online Trading Signals?

Trading signals are services that tell you when to enter a buy or sell trade. They are typically delivered to you by text messages and/or Email.

Subscription to such services can cost as little as a couple hundred dollars, to as much as a few thousand dollars a month.

Be very careful when choosing a trading signal service to subscribe to. Here are two things to think about if you're looking for one.

Tip #1 - It Won't Be Cheap

If a trading signal service is consistently profitable, chances are that it will cost much more than just a few hundred dollars a month. You've probably heard of the phrase "there's no such thing as a free lunch", and this is no different in the world of Forex trading. A successful signal service that can make you tens of thousands of dollars every month so will most certainly cost you more than just a couple hundred bucks!

Tip #2 - Stay Away From Automatically-Generated Signals

Never subscribe to a service that that's generated by computers alone. Such 'automatic' signals have no way of understanding the current market outlook or investor expectations.

You COULD certainly subscribe to such signals if the market behaves in predictable ways, but unfortunately more often than not, the market doesn't.
