Your Most Important Investment As A Forex Trader

A common mistake by many new traders is that they think they can make money… fast! While it’s true you can make money in a short amount of time, it doesn’t mean you will end up profitable in the long run.

A typical scenario is that a new trader reads a little bit about trading forex, finds a system online that claims to make money quickly, and then jumps right into trading because he feels like he’s got enough of a background to make millions of dollars.

Unfortunately after the “honeymoon” period is over and the excitement settles down, this new trader now realizes that trading isn’t as easy as he thought. The system doesn’t seem to be working like it claimed it would and he has no idea why the market is doing what it’s doing.

The most important thing you can invest in as a forex trader is your TIME! Every single trading day is a learning experience and if you stop learning, then you will never become a truly successful trader.

Take into account how much time it will take you to learn the basics. Then consider how much time it will take in your daily routine to read charts, news reports, record your trades, and be in the markets.

For someone who can dedicate a “full-time” job mentality to forex trading, then this is no problem. However, if you’re like most people, you may have a job, school work, tuba lessons, World of Warcraft dailies, so you cannot exactly dedicate your entire day to trading.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t trade, but it should give you some realistic expectations when it comes to determining your trading style. You probably can’t be a scalper or day trader, but maybe longer term trades will work better for your schedule.

Each day requires your time to analyze the market. Because news makes the market move, it’s important to consider the economic developments going on around the world and to make it part of your daily routine.

Some things to consider in your market analysis:

Forex Trader

  • Forex Market Developments – Look at what the “talk of the town” is in the forex world. See what the analysts are buzzing about and how the currencies reacted.
  • News Releases – Know what news reports are coming out each day and how they affect the markets. The more important the news report, the more movement you can expect to see in its currency. Make sure you check out our wicked-sick Forex Calendar
  • Market Prices of Other Commodities – The price of oil or U.S. Treasury yields can affect the way currencies move so it’s important to find out why these things are rising or falling and keep that in mind when trading currencies.

  • Current Events – Check out many news websites and get to know what is happening across the globe. Events such as major elections, military conflicts, and political scandals can all affect currency movements or global risk sentiment.

Finally, after going through your daily economic analysis, you have to look at the charts. Charts will give you insights into key support and resistance levels, trends, and possible price points in which to enter the market.

时间就是金钱

新交易者最常见的一个错误就是认为他们可以很快赚钱!在短时间内,你的确可以赚到钱,但这不意味着你最终会是获利的。

一种常见的情形就是新交易者了解了一点外汇交易方面的知识,找到一个声称可以很快赚到钱的在线系统,然后就立即跳进了交易之中,因为他觉得他了解了足够多的背景知识,可以获利成千上万元。

不幸的是,“蜜月期”一结束,兴奋地情绪平定下来之后,新交易者意识到交易并不想他想象的那么简单。系统并不像声称的那样,而交易者不知道市场为什么会这样做,以及市场在做些什么。

作为交易者,你能投资的最重要的东西就是你的时间!每一个交易日都是一个学习经历,如果你停止了学习,那你将不可能成为一个真正成功的交易者。把你能花多长时间学习交易基础考虑在内。接下来,想想你能将多少时间用于每日例行事项,读表,浏览新闻报道,记录交易和执行交易等。

对于那些可以“全职”交易的人来说,这不成问题。然而,如果你和大多数人一样,你可能需要工作,做作业,学习低音号,打魔兽,所以你不能将时间全部用于交易。

这并不是说你不能交易,而是在你确定你的交易风格时,它可以给你些实际的参考。你可能不能做超短线交易者或即日平仓交易者,但是,长线交易可能会比较适合你的日程。

每天你都要花时间分析市场。由于新闻会引起市场变动,因此将世界经济发展的状况考虑在内十分重要,最好把它列在你的每日例行事项之中。

市场分析师要考虑的因素:

外汇市场发展:看看外汇市场的“热门话题”。了解分析师们在干些什么,以及货币是如何反应的。

新闻发布:了解每天即将发布的新闻及它们对市场的影响。新闻报道越重要,货币的变动就会越多。确保你查看了财经日历。

其他商品的市价:油价或美国国债的收益率将影响货币的变动,因此找出这些资产价格上升和下降的原因十分重要,并要在进行货币交易时把它牢记在心。

时事:浏览新闻网站,了解世界上正在发生的事情。重大选举、军事冲突及政治丑闻等时间将会影响货币走势或风险情绪。

最后,在你完成了每日经济分析后,你要查看图表。图表将带你了解重要的支撑和阻力,走势和入场的可能价格。
