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?

The course (free) on babypips.com is definitely worth your time.  Forexfactory.com for upcoming events and Reuters good for fundamental analysis

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.

    • Is it possible to trade the MERVAL index on IG?
    • New data from Canada shows that lockdowns aren't so bad after all, well for some of us anyway. So long as they can keep finding replacement drivers to deliver my stuff everything is fine.    
    • I don't actually know too much about the great reset plan and have never looked into it closely but those that have (Prince Charles, Justin Trudeau etc) all remark on what an opportunity Covid-19 is to get the plan moving so I remain suspicious. The covid numbers are unreliable and problematic, if you go into hospital having had a heart attack you will be tested for covid with the PCR test which is know to give a very high number of false positives. If you test positive you go on the covid cases list and the covid admissions list and if you die from the heart attack you will go on the covid deaths list but it may well be you never actually had covid at all. No matter how you count it though the main point is that if there really was a deadly pandemic sweeping the land then total deaths this year would be way up on the average and they just aren't. I have posted data from the UK, Sweden, Ireland and now the US and all show the same thing, the total number of deaths for this year is normal. Also, normal winter pressures mean hospitals always fill up at this time of year, data I've seen so far for this year is not out of the ordinary but no doubt MSM are shouting CASES!!! Best of luck to you too.
