New to forex trading, looking for some tips


Recommended Posts

 

Hi All,

I am a new to forex trading & have just setup a spread betting account. I would be most grateful for any useful tips to get me on my feet. I'd like to research the market, learn about currency pairs such as AUD/JPN, NZD/CHN as I trade in the evenings. I want to research the economy of those countries, GDP, inflation etc... all the things that affect the price of currency however I don't know where to start, any suggestions?

Tread carefully. I read somewhere that you should use real money, a little, but enough to make it real to you. Otherwise its a game and you don't take it seriously and so don't learn. However don't go too far the other way and bust your whole financial future. Theres a whole section on money management and risk / reward.

Guest three dimensional approach

the book "A three dimensional Approach to forex trading" is quite comprehensive (Anna Coulling). Gives you a general idea about the different markets and the interconnections between them.

If you are new start with demo account first and it will be great for you later. Trading with demo account is virtually the same like real forex trading and that is why it is helpful to have that experience. I recommend to start trading with FxOpen because they are great with beginner traders. I have been trading with that broker since the start of my trading and I had no problems. They have helped me grow and make good deals. There is a lot of information on that broker on https://tradersunion.com/brokers/forex/view/fxopen/ , you can check it out and see for yourself.

In addition to all the great education sites already pointed out (definitely do those free courses, you don't have to pay for a course, lie the one on babypips.com), have a look at these:

https://www.fxstreet.com/ - great for economic calendar and historic price ranges based on previous data news releases and variation of data released from market expectations... this is the real money maker in FX. The market generally only moves in a predictable direction if it has a reason to.

https://tradingeconomics.com/ - great for a comparison of all economic indicators across countries

https://www.dailyfx.com/ - great for finding out where all the other IG traders have placed their bets. It takes contrary positions to the majority of IG traders on the basis that most people lose, so bet the other way to the majority.

https://www.tradingview.com/ - great for making sure that you are getting a price, comparable with other providers

Oftentimes, most beginners are not patient enough for Forex education. Most want quick return of investment while skipping the learning part which is by far the most important part. With the right knowledge and patience Forex trading is sure profitable.

 

 

You've got a 75 - 95% chance of ending up tired, frustrated, suffering from a disastrous loss of self-confidence and being much poorer.

Don't like them odds.

    • I think most professional traders have that methodology and mindset its what sets us apart from the rest I don't look at the VIX, as with cycles for you, the VIX isn't of interest to me, done perfectly well without the need for it so far and that won't change going forward  
    • Ultimately what ever happens regarding " cycles" will be of no help to me . I am my own trader    Re volatility , its my niche , My models pick up most swings high and low .  My methods are recactive not so much predictive .   Its doesnt matter where it goes as long as it goes  .  1 year predictions are just a little fun with no weight in my profitability . Most years are up so just on that you should be bullish year on year and you will be right more times than not  .  I dont care if i am right or wrong . I left my ego behind a while back  .  Vix hasnt been around long enough to have a handle on its efficacy but i have done studies on realised volatility back multi decades and i put some credence in my conclusion  , but once again it will have zero influence on my returns unlike most  . We know there are no absolutes in this game , just probabilities and possibilities , define the former and manage the latter and it takes care of itself   ..  rock on   Wise words 
    • Can anyone help me understand why i am not seeing any market depth data for some shares? For example, the pic below is what i see for SThree plc (STEM) in my share dealing / isa account. I am seeing market depth for other shares, so it is just a case that there is no market in this share? I find this a bit strange given that it is listed on the main market. Is it some sort of bug in the trading platform?
