Forex Trading Tips | Initial Investment

We have gotten a few questions regarding how much money a trader should start with to begin their investing journey. One of our forex trading tips is this: Start with nothing! I will explain…

For Forex trading, and pretty much all investing there is a massive sense of pride. Who wouldn’t be on cloud 9 when their picks/research and patience nets them a healthy sum of money? The heavy hitters of forex trading eat, drink, and sleep forex. From staying up to the moment on forex news, to looking for forex trading tips online.

This is a contributing factor to why forex trading can be so stressful. If your trade goes south, not only do you have the fiscal loss, but you also lose self- confidence. I believe that this is also a reason why so many beginning traders get really hyped up in the beginning, and at the first sign of trouble they lose interest. Humans by nature want to excel at the task that they are trying to accomplish.

Now, if you believe that you can put in the hours of research, and the time to learn charts, there is still a huge learning curve involved. This is why 90% of new Forex traders LOSE money. When learning to trade, you need to think of it as a marathon and not a sprint. You must learn to crawl before you can walk. This is why we urge all of our readers to first setup a mock account for a couple of months.

This will get you acclimated to the trading platform, charts, as well as the general “feel” of forex trading. There are many free forex trading platforms, I suggest you look into a few and see which ones you personally like. From the customer service, to the ease of logging into your account, you should be evaluating that platform. It is your money, and you are taking on all the risk, you should feel completely comfortable with the platform that you chose.

Another Forex trading tip is that when starting out, do not trade on feeling but trade on the facts. This is a very common rookie mistake when can end up costing you a lot of money. For more forex trading tips, please subscribe to our twitter, or facebook page. We regularly post updates.
