Learn Forex Trading

Learn forex trading before you enter the
ring with the heavy weights!

There are three ways to learn forex trading. The first is by purchasing an online or offline forex course from a school or individual guru; the second is purchasing a course in conjunction with a seminar, and followed with a mentoring program as an apprentice to a forex trader or broker; and the third is on your own.

The third is the most difficult because unless your a genius, that can read a few books on forex trading and than incorporate exactly what you read like a computer, detached from any emotions, chances are you will end up losing large sums of money as you learn how to trade on the highly volatile forex markets.

The first two methods are the better choices because they are relatively safer. The beginner learns the trading process under the guidance of an experienced instructor, preferably an active trader. This trader teaches how the markets may react under certain conditions and how to enter and exit based on the criteria studied.

Here too, a beginner can learn forex trading by working first with a demo account as an apprentice because he sees and absorbs critical decisions being made in real time. The offline or online forex trading schools impart knowledge that can make a student ready to trade.

There are three key areas from the forex market that a beginner trader must understand fully before starting to trade.

The first is the process. The forex market is the largest market in the world which works round the clock. All trading is conducted in real time across four time zones and national boundaries; United States (New York), Asian (Singapore, Japan), Europe (London) and Sydney Australia.

The trader has the option to deal in his national currency or currencies of other countries. There are no barriers, no entry points. Currencies are bought and sold against one another.

The second is interpreting charts, also known as technical analysis or a technical trader. A technical trader learns forex trading by learning to use charting software to map market movements. Such an analysis equips the trader with the knowledge to take decisions based on market behavior. The trader can then compute entry and exit points that are compatible with market conditions from recent history.

The third is trading psychology. The trader should learn to take losses in stride. This is probably the most difficult to accept for a new trader who wants to learn forex trading. He or she should not stop trading when suffering a string of losses over a short period of time. So often a trader will sabotage themselves unknowingly by feeling guilty or ashamed after incurring a losing trade. Concerned that they have made a mistake and beating him or her self over it. Forgive yourself, and move on, but do not give up. It is the trading journey that overall will be correct, not each individual step.

The same applies to profitable trades. The trader should not be carried away but must exercise discipline as he continues trading.
