Understanding the art of Currency Trading

by Vicky Lean

Forex trading is not a business but it is an art. Many people do not know that art is not only abstract creations that we only feel like painting but they can also be realistic creations when we execute your trades perfectly. This may sound poetic but it is true in Forex. Many professional traders are trading for years and they have taken these trades in the form of art. If you focus on how they analyze, how they place the trades and plan their strategy, it is all an art. Very few have mastered this art of trading and we will tell you some tips that can help you to master your trading art in Forex. It may take you years and you may also need to change it but it will help you to perfect your strategy.

Keep your trading chart clean
The expert Singaporean traders can easily differentiate the novice traders just by looking at their charts. The new traders are always fascinated with different kinds of indicators. They are placing trades based on different readings of the indicators. They even spend a huge amount of money to ensure a consistent profit. But indicators can never help you to become a successful trader. It’s nothing but a helping tool. We are not saying to avoid indicators but it’s better to use only one or two. Never take any trade based on the indicators reading. Use the key support and resistance level to find the profitable trade setups.

You have to keep your trading charts clear. Instead of doing the lower time analysis, switch back to the daily time frame. Try to find the long-term market trend in your online trading platform and place a trade with managed risk. To maintain a high level of accuracy, you can learn price action trading. This system is based on the Japanese candlestick pattern which allows the traders to find the key reversal point of the market. But price action trading is not bulletproof. So make sure you are not risking too much as it will ruin your trading career. Learn from the expert traders if you want quick success in the trading profession.

Believe in yourself
The first phase of creating art believes in you. There will be times when people will tell you cannot make it happen but you have to believe in yourself. If you know you are doing the right thing, you will achieve your success in Forex. We are not saying you should not follow professionals’ advice and their tips but you should trade with your own decisions. You can take help from them but the end decisions will always be made by you. Legendary traders did not become the legend when they started their career. They had many ups and downs and people used to laugh at them. They believed in themselves and now they are successful.

Never look for perfection, try to make your strategy better.
You cannot perfect your strategy in Forex but you can only make it better. Traders cannot understand and they always try to develop the only strategy that will always win all the trades in Forex. This is not possible in your career and the professionals never looked for perfection. They only try to make their trade better than the last time. This search for perfection will make you analyze the market and you will place your trades with the better strategy.

Success is the baby of practice
Success does not come to yourself but you have to accomplish it. It is only practice in Forex that can make you successful. You are given demo accounts for reasons and use them for practicing. Let your mind open to new ideas and practice them in Forex. This market is always changing and you also need to change with the trend. Practice is the only way you can master the art of trading in Forex.
