How to Trade Foreign Exchange


Visitors: 154

I'm going to show you how to trade in foreign exchange. This is really an exciting marketplace since it is the largest in the world and it is also one that allows individuals to participate right from their own home. This very fact has allowed this market to grow to over three trillion dollars a day and it will continue to grow. A lot of people come to make a quick profit, but it really doesn't work that way. You can make very profitable short term trades, but you really have to have the experience and understanding to do it. I'm going to share a little about what I learned during my time trading.

If someone has told you about this market, than they've probably mentioned that you can trade over a 24hr period of time. It is true that you can do this, but some times are more profitable than others. It can be very bad to trade at other times. Typically, you have high volume and low volume times. The high volume times are typical business hours where a lot of trading is going on. Low volume is in the late evening when very little is going on. Low volume is actually dangerous to trade at because there is no balance of supply and demand. Stick with the high volume time.

Another thing you need to learn is how to control your emotions. It can be very tough on you at times and very stressful. This is when the worst emotions come out because they're usually viewed as logical. As much as a gut feeling, feels right, it isn't based on logic, reason or evidence. For that very reason it should be rejected.

Forex Factor X will eliminate the emotions from trading since it is just software. It carefully watches the market and only makes trades when there is big money to be made.
