Forex Trading The Easy Way.

Forex Trading The Hard Way.

Lets get one thing straight before i start. Forex trading is not easy. It looks easy, but if you have been trading for some time, you will know that it is probably one of the hardest things you have ever tried to do. But learning to trade Forex is as easy or as hard as you make it.

Easy Or HardI liken learning to trade the Forex market, to learning a foreign language, but instead of learning French or Spanish you are learning all the languages of the world at the same time. Now how hard would that be? About as hard as learning to trade Forex. πŸ™‚

It does not have to be that way though. I did it the hard way with 1000’s of hours of chart study, but i am a bit like a dog with a bone. When i put my mind to something i have to accomplish it. I don’t care how long it takes, or how many knock backs i get, and let me tell you i have had many knock backs. I probably blew 3 live accounts before i cracked it.

There is no shame in that i can tell you. Blowing one account is bad enough, and most people give up there, but i was determined to succeed, and succeed i did. The hard way.

Forex Trading The Easy Way.

But there is an easy way. You pay someone like me to teach you how to trade, its as simple as that really. Paying me to teach you how to trade like a professional trader, may seem like the cheats way out, and yes it is, but think about it this way.

I have blown the trading accounts, so you don’t have to.
I have done the 1000’s of hours of chart study, so you don’t have to.
I have got up at 5am and gone to bed at 1am, so you don’t have to.
I have fallen out with with my wife many times, so you don’t have to.
I have learned to trade the hard way, so you really don’t have to.

Money Making MachineI am not saying you are not going to have to make sacrifices. Yes you will have to spend time studying charts, maybe after a hard days work, maybe at weekends. Yes you will have to have the desire to be successful. Yes you will have to learn how to trade. I am not handing you a fool proof plan, you will have to learn, but you will be learning the easy way, not the hard way as i did.

It may take you 3 months, it may take you 6 months, it may take you 12 months to become consistently profitable. How long it takes you is determined by how hard you work. But if you are prepared to work hard, and you really want to succeed at this business. I can give you something very special that will change your life.

I can give you the keys to the money making machine that is Forex. All you have to do is learn how to switch it on. πŸ™‚

Thanks for visiting my site, and have a great day.

How Much Time Are You Going To Waste? How Much Money Are You Going To lose?

Professional Forex TraderSome statistics for you to consider.

95% of retail Forex traders lose money.

Most retail traders blow a min of 3 trading accounts before they give up.

Apx 50% of retail traders give up within the first 6 months.

Of the 50% that are left apx 90% of them give up within 2 years. Of the 10% that are left around 30% will go on to achieve consistent profitability.

The average length of time it takes a retail trader who sticks it out to get to consistent profitability is 6 years.

Not great stats are they?

Why are these stats so bad?

I was watching a YouTube video the other day of a so called professional trader who said that he did not know how institutional traders trade. He also said that brokers do not put retail orders in the market, but just write them down on a piece of paper. There were over 200 people watching his live feed trying to learn from him. How are you ever going to make money listening to people like that, and the internet is full of these clowns.

You are not going to learn how to trade by watching YouTube videos.

I was sent this email the other day from a marketing company telling me about this fantastic trader.

Hi Rob,

I wanted to give you one last reminder to get started with xxxx’s trading room. His $7 trial is ending in just a few hours (midnight TONIGHT).

Look I’ve been in this industry for a few decades now, and I’ve seen all sorts of rapscallions trying to bamboozle you into joining something to steal your hard-earned income.

That is not the case here.

We’re offering to give you full access to a legendary trader (xxxx xxxx) for just $7 for an entire 7 days.

Think about what it would cost to pay someone like this to be your coach. Most people of his caliber are charging a MINIMUM of $1,000 per hour.

That’s $40k for a week… and we’re giving you access for just $7.

Why?

It’s pretty simple.

We know that many of you will continue to stay on as members, paying just $197/mo for access to his trading room (which is a steal in itself!). The $7 is simply to weed out those who are actually serious about this, from those who aren’t.

And I want to reassure you that if this trading room isn’t for you… just cancel it within that first 7 days and you’ll never be charged again. It’s easy to cancel – just email his support team. There’s no trickery here.

Go here to get started now.

Remember, this offer ends at midnight tonight, just a few hours from now.

So people of his caliber charge a min of 1000 bucks an hour, but he’s charging 7 bucks a week, then 197 a month. Why do people fall for this crap. If he was worth a 1000 bucks an hour that’s what he would be charging.

And if he is such an amazing trader, why would you decide that his trading room is not for you?

Read the title of this article again and think about this statistic.

90% of successful professional traders have been trained by another successful professional trader.

Make over 100 pips profit with this strategy for trading the news.

Trading the news can be very profitable if you can predict which way price is going to move. Entering a trade just before a news release can net you 30 or 40 pips very quickly if you get the direction right. But predicting which way price is going to move is very much a gamble, so most traders do not trade the news, as its just too risky, and you often get stopped out, as price quickly moves one way, and then the other. This type of move is known as a whipsaw. Most traders have experienced this whipsaw effect, when price goes up then down very quickly, and it seems no matter which way you trade, you always seem to get stopped out.

Now i look at the charts in a very different way to 95% of traders out there, and i can always see an opportunity in whatever the market throws at me. When you understand why the market moves as it does, you can profit from almost any trading scenario, and trading the news can also be a great opportunity to profit from the market.

A strategy for trading the news is probably one of the hardest things to develop, but if you understand what is happening to price then its a lot easier. Now i am not going to go into the ins and outs of price action, and how i use it, but i would like to give you a simple but effective strategy for trading the news. This strategy can give you over 100 pips profit on a major news release if used on multiple pairs.

Now the big problem with developing a strategy for trading the news is stop losses. When most traders enter trades they set a stop loss. That stop loss could be anything from 10 pips to 30 pips, or more if you are trading higher time frames. Now if you are trading the news on the 15 min time frame, and you set a stop loss how big should it be? 10 pips, 20 pips, 30 pips, more? It is very difficult to set a stop loss for a news announcement, as you don’t know how big the move is going to be? So if you don’t know how big the move is going to be, how can you set a stop loss? You can set a stop loss above a recent high, or below a recent low, but a big whipsaw like the one in the screenshot below will still wipe you out. So what do you do? How do you profit from a move like that? Well the trading strategy below will describe what you need to do to make money from a news based whipsaw move.

strategy for trading the newsIf you think about what happens in a whipsaw, price goes up, stops out short traders, price goes down, stops out long traders. Now you know price is going up, to stop out shorts, and you know its going down to stop out longs, so this is what you do. You enter two trades, one long, one short, as close as you can to the the mid price of the move that leads up to the whipsaw. If you look a the screenshot above, this would be the middle black line. You set a take profit on both trades of 15 to 20 pips. You can go for more pips if the news is big, and you are going to get a bigger whipsaw, an interest rate decision for example, but 15 to 20 pips is a safe amount to go for.

Now the important part of this strategy is NOT to set a stop loss. Your take profit becomes the stop loss. Most traders will be trading this with a 20 to 30 pip stop loss, you trade it with a take profit instead of a stop loss. Price goes up, hits your take profit, price goes down hits your take profit. As price is hitting other traders stop losses, its hitting your take profit. But because you are trading without a stop loss, it does not matter which way price goes first, you are not going to get stopped out, you are only going to get your take profit hit. Does that make sense? Read it again if you are unsure.

Now there are a couple of important things you need to be aware of before you use this type of strategy for trading the news. The news release must be a high impact release, ( you can check which news releases are high impact on the calendar on the homepage ) NFP, interest rate decision, FOMC etc. A high impact news release is much more likely to produce a whipsaw move. The market also has to be moving in a tight range before the news is released. Check the screenshot above for an example of what you are looking for. This is VERY important. When the market has been moving in a tight range before the news traders stop losses are in easy reach of the whipsaw. If price has been going up, or going down before the release, then the whipsaw is less likely to happen. If you have the tight range that you need, you must enter as close to mid price as you can, so you are not exposed at the end of the range. If you are, your 15 or 20 pip take profit may not get hit in both directions.

Something else you can do to maximize your profit, is to trade this strategy on more than one pair. If the news is euro related, trade all euro pairs, if its dollar related, trade all dollar pairs, if its Yen related, you get the idea. As long as you have the tight range you are looking for before the news release you can trade any relevant pair. Trading more than one pair will also spread your risk, just in case you do not get the whipsaw on all the pairs. As long as you get it on the majority of pairs you will still make plenty of pips, and your take profit will get hit one way or another.

Please note: I am not a news trader. The strategies i employ for trading are low risk high probability trading strategies. A lot of my trading is based on chart logic, and this strategy is a logical way to trade the whipsaw on this type of news release. If you are a news trader then this strategy will hopefully help you understand the whipsaw, and how to profit from it. If you decide to use this strategy or not, i hope its been enjoyable reading, and made you think about the market a little differently. Making money from trading is all about understanding what is happening on the chart, and thinking outside of the box. πŸ™‚
