The Secret To Successful Forex Trading

What does the market do everyday?

If you think about it logically the market can do 3 things every day. It can go up, it can go down, it can go sideways, but it always does something. The market does not stay at the same price for 24 hours, its always moving, it never stays still, and if its moving, its moving for a reason, and if you understand why its moving, then there are opportunities to make money from those moves.

what does the market do every dayMost traders fail to understand why the market moves as it does.

They think price goes up because people are buying, they think price goes down because people are selling, and they think the market goes sideways because people are not buying or selling.

That can sometimes be the case, but its not always the case. Most traders react to what they see on the chart, if they see prices going up they buy. If they see prices going down they sell.

So why is it that 95% of traders lose money, if they are doing what the chart is telling them to do?

Why traders lose money in the market.

The reason most traders lose is because they buy when they should be selling, and they sell when they should be buying. The reason they lose is because they buy when prices go up, but because they don’t know why the price is going up, they don’t know how long to hold the trade for, when prices then reverse they get stopped out. The same applies if price is going down.

why do traders lose moneyHow much money would you be able to make if you knew why price was going up or down, and you knew how long you could hold your trade for to make maximum profit. Not because of buying or selling, but because of some other factor that’s making price move.

So you have had no success with buying or selling into a move, so you try to catch the bottom or the top of a move. Prices start going up, so you sell. Prices start going down so you buy. Prices keep going so you add to your losing trade, and prices still keep going. When you have been stopped out prices then reverse.

Why did you lose your money? For the same reason that you lost it before. Because you were buying when you should be have been selling, and you were selling when you should have been buying. Whether you are trend trading, or counter trend trading you need to know why prices are moving, and whether you should be buying or selling.

Its not just as simple as buyers or sellers. Prices move for many reasons, and you need to know that reason before you enter a trade, so you are on the right side of the move.

Understanding the Forex market.

understanding the forex marketI get a lot of calls from traders that think i have some sort of magic formula for trading the markets. A holy grail, or a guaranteed method for Forex trading success. Well guys i have to confess that i don’t have such a thing, as such a thing does not exist. No one knows with a 100% confidence what will happen next in the Forex market. But if you fully understand what is making prices move, and take high probability trades based on that understanding, then you can be a successful trader.

I am not the master of the market, or a Forex trading guru, and i cannot promise you untold riches by enrolling on my training and mentoring program, but what i can promise you is that i will teach you what you need to know in order for you to be successful, and if you devote the time required to learn what i teach, then you will be a consistently profitable trader.

Embrace new ideas and beliefs.

How i trade, and what i teach is very unlike what you may have come across before, and it can take some traders longer than others to fully embrace what i teach, and adapt their trading strategies accordingly. It can be a struggle for some traders to get in the mindset of how a professional Forex trader thinks, and how he trades.

the truth about ForexIf you have been trading for a number of years and losing money all that time, it can be hard to let go of your learned behavior, and look at the market in a different way. Some traders however, will see my stuff as a light bulb moment in their trading journey, and my teachings will literally transform their trading overnight.

So to any prospective students reading this, if you are considering coming on board with me, please have an open mind, and be prepared to embrace new ideas and thought processes about how the market works. What i have to say will turn your understanding of the market on its head, so be prepared for some shocking revelations.

Use your understanding to trade with confidence.

I trade Forex with confidence and an unrivaled understanding of the forces that drive the market. My entries and exits in the market are based on high probability reversal points.

trade with confidenceSome of my entries and exits are so precise, that it does sometimes seem like the market is dancing to my tune, which has prompted some of my students to ask me if i have a contact on the inside, someone feeding me information on where to enter and exit the market. 🙂

It does sometimes look that way, but i can assure you i do not have a contact on the inside, and there is no slight of hand involved.

Everything i trade and teach is based in what the chart is telling me to do. I am not going to go into detail about how i trade, and how i teach, but its all based on market knowledge. All the information you need to do what i do is contained within the chart.

Don’t waste time and effort with free education.

free forex educationThere are many Forex training companies, or individuals that will give away free information, or make videos of how you should trade the market. There are 1000’s of free videos on You Tube that you can spend years trawling through. I respect those people for taking the time to put together training videos to help people learn how to trade Forex. But the sad fact is they are a waste of your time and effort.

You have heard of the saying you don’t get something for nothing, well its true 99% of the time. You can spend a few years going through all this stuff on You Tube, and don’t get me wrong, its entertaining stuff, and you will learn a lot of the basics, but as far as making money goes, there will be very little in there that will help you in that regard.

The secret to successful Forex trading.

I am going to give you something now that will help you in your journey to becoming a profitable trader. This is a very important part of what i do, and in my opinion is the real secret to successful Forex trading.

the secret to forex trading successMost people think the Forex market is random, but its not. I have been in this business long enough to know that no matter how random it looks, its not random. The market is very structured. The same things happen, time and time again in the market, and when you understand the market as i do, you can easily pick up on these recurring events, and use them to make a profit from the market.

This is what i teach you in my training course. I teach you to recognise the recurring events in the market, and how to profit from them. And i am not talking about chart patterns, like head and shoulders. Although head and shoulders are a very good pattern, if you know how to trade them correctly.

I am not talking about buying and selling at trend lines, or support and resistance levels. I am not talking about Elliot Wave, or Harmonics, or Moving Averages, or MACD or Bollinger Bands or any other indicator that you can find to give you trade signals. What i am talking about here are the guaranteed moves in the market that happen every day.

Use what you know about the market to make money.

what-do-you-knowThis may seem like a strange statement, but try and think about what i have just said.

Use what you know about the market to make money. Think about what you know about the market, and what makes price move. What do you really know, with the highest probability? Work out what you are most confident about, and trade based on that.

If you are unsure about how price is going to move then don’t trade. You need to focus on probability to be successful. Be proactive in your trading not reactive. Analise the market for probability, and trade when the probability of a successful trade is most in your favor.

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

Free Group Forex Training Sessions Are Now Available.

Free group Forex training.

For a number of weeks i have been offering students free group Forex training sessions as a way of further developing their understanding of the Forex business. The feedback i am getting from students is very positive, so i have decided to make the group sessions a regular addition to my education program.

free group forex trainingThe group training sessions will be every week and will be held at times that are convenient for myself and the majority of students.

They are currently free of charge for anyone that has paid for either the 20 or the 40 hour Forex training course, and is a member of the live trading room.

There is no obligation to attend the group sessions, but they are there if you feel you need the extra tuition.

As with the one to one lessons, the group sessions will be during market hours, so you will be getting the benefit of live market training.

There is no substitute for live market training.

There is no substitute for HP Sauce, and in my opinion there is no substitute for live market training, but many Forex training providers will not teach in a live market, they prefer to make training videos or DVDs to educate students.

no substitute for live market trainingIt takes market knowledge and skill to train students in a live market, you have to know what you are doing, and to be honest with you most providers don’t.

Anyone can edit a video or a DVD to make the market do what you want it to do, but you have to have a greater understanding of the market to be able to teach it live.

My lessons are a professional Forex traders insight, into the forces that drive the Forex market. I will show you how you can exploit the opportunities that exist, to make money everyday from this business.

Many providers claim to be able to do this, but why are 95% of Forex traders losing money? Because they are being educated by people that do not know how to trade in a live market.

Anyone can trade on paper, but only the 5% can do it for real.

Changes to the live trading room.

changes to the live trading roomAs well as introducing the group training sessions, i have also changed the membership of the live trading room.

Anyone that has paid for the earn while you learn option, will now get free lifetime access to the live trading room.

The £195 per month subscription option is still available for people that do not wish to join the earn while you learn program.

I have decided to make these changes to my education program because i want to show my commitment to the success of all my students, new or existing. I am not interested in taking your money and pushing you out into the shark invested waters of the Forex market, i really want to help you achieve Forex trading success.

Many of my students tell me that what i offer is worth far more that what i charge for it, but now my Forex training course is even better value than it was before. So if you want to be trained by the best, and the most committed Forex training provider in the business, then please get in touch.

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

How Do You Assemble Flat Pack Furniture?

What has flat pack furniture got to do with Forex trading?

man with flatpackForex trading is a big mystery to many people.

Traders search high and low to uncover the mystery of trading, but the truth is, trading is not as hard as it looks, if you know what you are doing.

Every job requires you to have certain skills to be successful, Forex trading is no different.

If you can learn to assemble flat pack furniture, then you can learn to be a great Forex trader.

The rules of the market.

To be successful a successful trader, you have to understand and follow the rules of the market. How many times have you opened a box of flat pack furniture and proceeded to put it together without reading the instructions first? How far do you get before you mess something up and have to go back and read the instructions?

Trading is the same, you can jump in at the deep end thinking “i know how to do this”, and then you quickly find out that you don’t, so you have to go back and read the instructions.

Getting the correct instructions.

instruction manualOk, so this time you are going to do it right. You open your new wardrobe and start to read the instructions. But whats this, the instructions you have in front of you, are how to put together a chest of draws, not a wardrobe. So what do you do?

Well some of the instructions can be applied to both the wardrobe, and the chest of draws. So you muddle through as best as you can, and cobble together the wardrobe by using the instructions for the chest of draws. You have a few bits left over but it looks ok. Lets hope it lasts longer than the other one did.

The hidden message.

If you did not see the hidden message in the last couple of paragraphs i will explain it. Whether you are assembling a wardrobe, a chest of draws, or trading Forex, you need the correct education to be successful. Whether you are aware of it or not, 95% of the Forex trading education you receive, either free or paid is wrong, and trading based on that education, will just leave you frustrated, out of pocket, and with a half finished wardrobe.

If you want to trade like a professional trader, you have to be educated by a professional trader.

For more information on my Forex training course click here.

Unfortunately, i will not be able to teach you how to put together flat pack furniture, but i will be able to teach you how to trade Forex. So you can then pay someone else to assemble your flat pack. Or do what i did, dump the flat pack and buy a nice bit of oak. Lovely. 🙂

A Horse Called Forex. How Many times Have You Fallen Off?

Do you have a horse called Forex?

How many times have you fallen off and got back on again? In the early days i fell off quite a few times, and every time i did i said that’s it, I’ve had enough, i am never trading again. But after a few hours, or sometimes a few days, that horse would be looking at me and saying, come on, get back on, and let’s try again. Forex trading was in my blood.

I am sure many of you can relate to this situation. You really want to trade well, but you are struggling to find good entries, or your stops always seem to be getting hit, or you are doing silly things, like jumping in to try and catch a big move. You have a few good days and then wham, you’re off the horse again.

Forex Grand NationalTrading can be very much like the Grand National for many traders, staying on the horse on the flat is not too much of a problem, but come to beecher’s brook, or the chair, and you are falling off again.

I am going to let you into a little secret. Many traders make a common mistake when they are trading, and that is they focus on making money, rather than being a successful trader.

Making money is a by product of being a great trader. You have to be a great trader first, and the money will come later. If you focus on making money you are trading emotionally, and if you are doing that you will make more mistakes, and you will fall off the horse more often.

Another common problem for a lot of traders is they do not really know what they are doing wrong, this is primarily because of a lack of knowledge. But if you are confident that you do know what you are doing wrong, but you are still struggling, then type out a list of the things you are doing wrong and keep it on your desk, or put it up on the wall in your trading room, to keep you focused.

Knowledge is everything in Forex trading.

To be a successful trader you have to have many qualities. The most important quality you need in my opinion is knowledge. You cannot be a successful trader without that. If you do not know how the market works, and what makes prices move, you will always struggle. You can have the other qualities that you need, like patience, and discipline, but without knowledge you will never be a consistently profitable trader.

Forex KnowledgeAll the information that you need to be a successful Forex trader is contained within the chart, but to be a successful trader you need to know how to read that chart.

Many traders think they can read a chart, but the truth is they can’t. They think they know what’s going on, but then the market does something weird, and unexpected, and what looked like a great set up, is now turning into a losing trade.

If you can relate to this, then you do not fully understand what the chart is telling you to do.

In my experience, the market will do something weird or unexpected about once a month on average. The rest of the time it does exactly what i expect it to do. So if you are experiencing unexpected weird market moves more regularly than that, then you lack the market knowledge needed to be successful. And let me tell you this right now, its not your fault you lack the knowledge you need, and its nothing to be ashamed of. Your knowledge is not up to scratch because the majority of information available to you to learn from, is poor at best.

Professional Forex training.

To be a great brain surgeon you need professional training, to be a great doctor you need professional training, etc etc. So why do some Forex traders think they can teach themselves to be a great trader? You would not try to do it in any other profession, so why try to do it in Forex? If you try to teach yourself how to be a brain surgeon you could kill someone. No one is going to die if you try to teach yourself how to trade, but your bank balance is going to get killed that’s for sure.

Professional Forex TrainingTo be successful in any profession you need to have professional training. Why are 95% of Forex traders losing money? Because 95% of Forex traders are teaching themselves to trade, or paying a few 100 bucks for a pretty pathetic Forex training course that will not teach them anything of value.

Why are so many graduates looking for internships at investment banks, or hedge funds? Because they want to be trained by professional traders. If trading was easy they would pay a few 100 bucks for a Forex training course, and be on their way to their first million, but we all know that there is a little bit more to it than that.

So what conclusions can we draw from the experience of continually falling off the horse. Well the first conclusion is that you are doing something wrong. So if you do not find out what it is, and do something about it, you are going to continue to fall off. Doing the same thing over and over is going to produce the same result.

What do i need to become a winner?

Forex Winners

In my experience the main problem you are facing is a lack of understanding. So you have to acquire the knowledge you need to be successful.

You have to find a professional trader that is prepared to educate you to give you the knowledge you need to be successful. Its a lot easier to be patient and disciplined if you have sound trading knowledge backing you up.

So if you have fallen off that horse called Forex more times than you care to remember, and you still want to get back on, then Forex trading is in your blood, and only 2 things can happen. You can either go broke, or you can reach out for help.

Realistically there is only one route you can take if you want to stay on the horse long enough to win the race. You need to be trained and mentored by a professional Forex trader.

If you have managed to make it to the end of this article, you now have 3 options.

Option 1. You can get back on the horse, do the same stuff, and fall off again, until you run out of money.
Option 2. You can contact me and i will teach you how to stay on the horse, and become a winner.
Option 3. You can shoot the horse and quit. 🙂

Which one are you going to choose? Option 2 looks like the favorite, and a pretty safe bet to me.
