Some investors love the stock market. They live and breathe equities: the excitement, the passion, the devastation of loss, the victory. Some like the options and futures markets, feeling it takes more skill than equities. And, there are some that prefer the global aspects of the FOREX.

But no matter what you prefer, you come across again and again the problem of whether you should trade with the trend, or trade for range. The impact of which method is chosen affects your chance of success, and, the reason we’re all here, your wallet (or purse as the case may be).

But those dealing in the FOREX have a unique advantage in that the market responds well to both styles of trading. So, what exactly is trading trend and range? Let’s take a look.

Following the crowd

Put simply, a trend is the direction a market, or the price of a single asset, takes. Trends vary from short, to long, to longer and to even longer or shorter.

There are trend identifiers that can tell you which way the wind is blowing. The simplest, and probably the best, method is to look at the higher lows in an uptrend and the lower highs when the market or asset is in a downtrend. There are other methods of course. For example, some investors like to define a trend as “a deviation from a range as indicated by the Bollinger Band.” What’s a Bollinger Band, you ask? It’s a band plotted two standard deviations away from a simple moving average.

But in the end, it doesn’t matter how you define it or look at it because the goal is the same: to make money by buying in on a trend early and holding on until the trend gives out and starts slowing. Most traders use tight stop trade orders (an order to buy or sell a security when its price surpasses a certain point), to limit their risk.

This method of trend trading can have huge payoffs. Leverage in the FOREX, because of its size and 24 hour trading, is typically 100:1, meaning that you only need to put down $1 of margin to get $100 worth of currency control. Given that the stock market is 2:1 and the futures market which is usually 25:1, you can see why you can make a huge amount of money with trend trading in the FOREX.

The Long Term

But trend trading isn’t for everybody. It takes discipline, with many traders meeting 20 or even 30 stop calls before they can catch a trend. If you get emotional about it and try to fight the market, you could lose your shirt.

That’s where range trading comes in. The range trader doesn’t care about direction. He trades knowing that no matter where the currency goes, it will come back to where it started. Range trading is based on the theory that prices will trade at the same levels many times, and the range trader will be there to gather up those profits from the oscillations in price.

But range trading isn’t free and clear either. A range trader will have to have a lot of money they are willing to risk to put the practice into play successfully. But, with more money (in the case of the FOREX, more leverage), there’s more chance of the trader’s enemy (i.e. emotion) coming into play. Positions can go against you many times in a row before you get a profit, and many traders just don’t have the stomach to watch their hard earned cash dwindling while they hang on to the idea of profits in the future. Also, if you’re not careful, with more than a few losses in a row you could trigger a margin call before you’ve had a chance for the currency to produce profits for you.

But, don’t despair. Many FOREX dealers have come up with a solution: they allow you to trade in mini-lots. By trading in mini-lots you can withstand many more drawdowns before triggering a stop order. This allows you to withstand more losses in a row before a margin call is issued.

One or the Other

Regardless of which method the trader chooses, the FOREX market is ready and able for both. As long as the trader remains disciplined and realizes that there will be some losses no matter what they do, they will improve their chances of fattening their bank accounts.

I’m going to help you make money currency trading with my most profitable advice I try to apply on a daily basis. This is a perfect opportunity for all those people out there looking to develop a second income from the comfort of their own home.

My first piece of advice is to watch the news. The most important news to watch would be the morning news because all the important economic news comes out at scheduled times in the morning. This news is very important because economic stability of a country determines the quality of the price of currency. If the quality of the economy goes down, the price of the currency will go down internationally. This is just the way it goes. The last thing you want to do is make a trade and in the middle of it, the Federal Reserve releases some information and your “good trade” turns into a big loss because you missed the news. You want to pay attention to any news relating to the economy and how well it is doing. This includes GDP, unemployment rates, central bank interest rates, consumer spending, etc. Typically if these numbers are good, than it is good for the currency. If they’re bad, they’re bad for the currency.

The next thing I want to discuss is not what you trade, but when you trade. There are basically two different times you can trade, high volume and low volume. I recommend starting in the high volume time because this is when everyone else is trading. This leads to a more predictable outcome since you can be sure market forces are in control. If you look at low volume times, a large bank could make a big trade which could drastically change the direction of a currency. At this time you would be at the mercy of a bank.

Lastly, you’ll want to get Forex Killer for your computer, so you can better handle trades and become more profitable. This software will seek out and find the most profitable trends out there, so you can profit from them.

The automated software of will give you an immediate edge in the market. Make trades that work for your profit line. For more information on the Forex Killer software, check out .

Over the next few lines I will tell you a little story about my experience with my automated forex system, and why it is important that you have one if you want to make money consistently within the forex market.

Forex trading can be a highly profitable business, but as everything in life it all comes down to knowing very well what you are doing. So to make a profit within the forex market you must either be already an expert, or you have to try and become one fast, but then again, becoming an expert in anything within a short period of time is virtually impossible and very risky if it is your investment at stake.

Believe me, even if you are an expert you will make mistakes quite often, maybe not because of a lack of knowledge, but because we as humans sometimes let emotions like fear and greed take us over, and this is where a reliable automated forex system comes in.

I have been trading for quite a while, and I started by trying to educate myself as much as I could, so I began my trading operation on my own. I didn’t do that bad, but I was not making the kind of money I was expecting, considering what some friends of mine where cashing in every month.

After a few months I decided that I have had enough, so I confronted one of my friends to try and suck some information out of him; when I finally managed to break him, he agreed to let me in on what he was doing, and here is what I got:

He confessed to me that in addition to some manually placed trades, he was using an automated forex system that had the ability to place and close over 90% winning trades all by itself.

Initially I took that for a joke and kept asking him to come clean with me, but he insisted that that was it, and to dig me out of my skepticism he sat me at his pc and showed me his forex trading chart. After 15 minutes staring at the monitor, I was surprised by the sound of a new trading order being placed without me or my friend touching anything; it was the automated forex system working. My jaw fell to the ground and I almost strangled my friend for not sharing this with me before.

I stayed there for a several hours because I had to see more to actually believe it. Well, after almost 6 hours and an aching back from my friends crappy chair, I witnessed the automated forex system place 3 winning trades for a $600 profit.

As you might guess, I did not wait until the next day and went straight home to download the software, and after three months using it I can only say that not having it is a waste of your money. You read right, a waste of your money, because you will be missing out on profits that you cannot possibly make all by yourself, and here is why:

1) You can be attentive about what is going on in the forex market for only a few hours a day, because we as humans need to eat, sleep and sometimes even work, and every time you are not following the market trends you are potentially missing profitable entry points for a trade. The automated forex system will be on guard 24 hours per day, and it will take advantage of every good opportunity to place a winning trade, which often occurs during the night.

2) We as humans have a tendency to become scared and nervous when we feel we are about to lose money and that often leads us to make bad calls based on emotion rather than calculated analysis. The automated forex system will never be scared or greedy, it will always act based on the market conditions and therefore will have a much higher rate of winning trades.

This does not mean that you cannot trade based on what you know about the forex market, because having an idea of what you are doing will always place you ahead. However, if you team up with an automated forex system you are certain to increase your profits by 100% or more, and if you are new to the forex market, you will start on the right foot making profits from the very beginning with very little risk.

So if you have ever wondered whether you should have an automated forex system by your side or not, the answer is: Definitely. Not having it will cost you a lot of potential profits.

For most players in the FOREX market, the use currency trading software is no longer a new concept.

In the past currency or foreign exchange (FOREX) traders relied on other people to help them out. Help was provided by those who provided signals. These signals are like warning signs for traders to decide whether it was time to sell or to buy. This was a great way to lessen the risk of a big loss and increase the likelihood of making a profit. Traders did not mind at all if they had to pay for the service because it was worth it.

There are some reasons why some traders are hesitant to pay for providers of signals. Some currency traders simply do not wish to become dependent on signals. If they always had to rely on signals, they would not gain the skills to analyze trends and make decisions on their own.

Some traders also realise that it is not easy to look for signal companies that are quite good and reliable. With the vast number of companies offering their services, it can be a chore to sift the ones with a good track record from the ones that are no better than guessers. If you do not get a good signal provider, you could end up spending more than you bargained for. A worse situation would be spending a total of more than your actual profits can support.

One good option that you can take aside from paying a signal provider would be to get software for currency trading. This can give you the opportunity to get the signals you need while you try to learn the ropes of currency trading. With good software, you get accuracy and reliability.

There are many software products out there for FOREX trading. You can save yourself a lot of trouble, effort and money by trying out two software products that are highly regarded and positively reviewed by real traders. FOREX Killer and Prophet1 Expert Advisor are two of the best software products around that can generate signals. They can work well for you regardless of what type of trader you are.

FOREX Killer provides signals for both short term and long term trading at great convenience. It can perform computations on the Windows operating system after acquiring broker data in csv format. Once it has the necessary information, it can analyze present prices based on the currency pair, time restrictions and loss and profit level specifications that you enter. With all the correct data in place, you can receive signals that can help you decide to buy or sell based on your trading style and preferences. You can use FOREX Killer for currencies, gold and stocks.

An alternative to FOREX Killer is Prophet1 Expert Advisor. Most successful trader users have applied this software for day trading but it has also been known to perform well under other time conditions. Use this software if you are comfortable with using MACD’s and moving averages as signal indicators. This software has the reputation of functioning so well even at default that it has a success rate of 90%.

Despite the advantages currency trading software can provide, you should not rely too heavily on them. If you truly want to be successful in the FOREX market, you should at least learn some techniques to analyze signals and trends yourself.

Whether or not you would like to have a currency trading software to help you in , you may like to read more about FOREX from our site. In case you are thinking about undertaking some , you can also check out our video section or simply do your own course search from our site.

Forex is the market exchange of money and cash worldwide. Most of all countries on the earth are involved in the market Forex Trading, where money is traded on the basis of the value of the highest currency at the time. While there are currencies that not worth much, this will not be traded strongly, because there are currencies, which are more valued. Thus brokers and bankers are going to choose to invest in this market at such moment.

Forex Trading takes place every day, where nearly two billion dollars are transferred each day – a huge sum of money. Think of how many millions it would take to bring about a total of one billion, and then think that this is done on a day by day base – if you desire to get concerned in the money exchange processes, you must know that Forex Trading is a place ”where money is swapping hands every day”.

The cash that is dealt on the exchange markets will be this of all countries throughout the world. Each currency has its own three-letter symbol to represent this country and the currency is being marketed. For example, the yen Japanese is the JPY and the dollar USA is USD. The pound sterling is the pound sterling and the euro is EUR. You can buy and sell within numerous currencies in a particular day, or you can buy and sell in a currency different for each day. Most of all transactions through a broker, or those of any company will require a certain type of fees, so you have to be sure in the trade that you deal, because creation of too many trades will involve many costs.

Trades between marketplaces and nations will occur every day. A number of the most common trades occur between the euro and the U.S. dollar, then the U.S. dollar and Japanese yen, and after that the other most often seen operations lie between the pound sterling and the U.S. dollar. The operations occur throughout the day, all night and taking place in different markets. At the time when a country opens for exchanging in a day, a different is closing. The time sectors from around the world affect how the cooperation takes place and where marketplaces are released.

When you make a business between one market and another, relating one legal tender to another, you will become aware of the symbols, which are used to give details on these operations. All dealings are in progress to bear a resemblance to something like this: EURzzz / USDzzz, and the “zzz” are to symbolize the fractions of commerce proportion for the different transactions. Other examples could give the impression of being like this: AUSzzz / USD, etc. At the reading and examining your statement and exchange information online, you will be aware of it much better if you remember at least the most important symbols of currencies that are concerned.

The Internet has brought a lot of changes in the way that we live our lives and our conduct our personal business. We can shop, date, and bank online. You can do just about anything online.

We can even trade stocks, forex, bonds, futures to name a few online. Traders love having the convenience of being able to look at their accounts whenever they see fit, and brokers also like having the choice to take orders over the net as opposed to the phone.

When you are new to investing it is an advantage to have the ability to speak with a broker. You are able to ask questions face to face and have any fears taken care off. Online stock trading can be very risky when you don’t have the correct information. If this is the case, make sure that you learn as much as you can about trading stocks before you start trading online.

Most brokerage houses now offer online trading to their clientele. Because doing business can cut down operating costs a great thing about trading online is that fees and commissions can be much lower. Online trading is great but like anything there are some disadvantages.

When it comes to choosing an online broker or brokerage firm go with years of establishment as well as feedback from other clients. You won’t find one that has been in business online for many years of course because online trading is just in its infancy, but you can find a company that has been in business that long and now offers online trading.

Working on the internet means relying on a machine and like all other machines break downs can happen. In trading if this is at the most inopportune time it could cause losses for you. You won’t always have the ability to get online to make a trade. You need to be sure that you can call and speak with a broker if this is the case using the online broker. This is truth for both advanced traders or beginners.

Online trading is a fantastic opportunity, convenient and can be highly profitable but it isn’t for everyone. Think carefully before you trade online and make sure that you really know what you are doing. Do your research and homework and you will do very well.

The Plain Facts About Stock Trading

Want to hear a scary statistic? Well, here it is – whether you want to hear or not: “At least 70% of traders lose money” in the stock market. This is according to a report from the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA). The report goes on to add that “70% of public traders will not only lose, but will almost certainly lose everything they invest.”

Yikes! Everything? How can that be? Especially with all the charting tools, the stock trading simulators, the books, courses, coaching, and seminars from stock-trading gurus that are available today.

One more little statistic from that report: In all, only “11.5% [of traders] might profitably trade” the markets.

And yet you constantly read about people raking in bushels of cash by day trading – most especially penny stocks. It doesn’t seem to add up.

The Difference Between Winners and Losers?

The difference between the 70% of losers and the 11.5% of winners is – what do you think? The best strategies? Guess again. It is, hands down, a good foundational education about trading and about the markets.

Case in point. A number of years ago a man named Ralph Vince (an expert on the mathematics of trading) conducted an experiment. He chose forty highly educated people – all with doctorate degrees — and gave each of them $1,000 in play money. He then invited them to participate in 100 rounds of a computerized stock trading game. They were even supplied with 100 trades that had a 60% winning percentage.

At the end of the experiment only two of these highly educated individuals – armed with winning strategies – made a profit. Thirty-eight failed! Why?

Specifically because winning strategies do not a trader make!

The criteria that will turn you into a successful trader is time, knowledge, experience and proper guidance. In a word, find some good day trading courses and see which one fits your needs.

Two Ways to Learn

As with most any endeavor there are basically two ways to learn. The first is, obviously, through reading and studying (seminars, online courses, books, videos, etc.). We might call this the formal training.

The second is by experience. The hands-on sensation of the actual day-by-day buying and selling which trigger your roller coaster highs and lows of wildly gyrating emotions. Most day-trading courses included both.

The formal training allows you to learn from the mistakes of others. From their teaching you can learn to avoid the worst of the pitfalls involved in day trading.

Hands-on training helps you get the feel of entering and exiting a trade. The feel of watching that chart move once you’ve pulled the trigger on a trade. The act of exiting at just the right moment to make the profit!

Can you imagine learning to drive a car from reading a book? Or learning to swim from reading a book? So much of it has to do with getting the “feel” of what you’re doing. Trading penny stocks is the same way.

Hands-on training will also help you to know yourself. (It is highly recommended that you begin by paper trading or other means of simulated trading.) What are your basic emotions with regard to money? To investing? To winning? To losing? You had better know ahead of time. Believe it or not, your own basic emotions will play a big part in your success or subsequent failure in day trading penny stocks.

Watch Those Emotions!

Fear is that emotional state of anxiety due to a real or an imagined presence of danger. Fear can impair judgment and cause a trader to recoil from making a trading decision, or to delay a trading decision response.

On the other hand, a self confident person, one with a positive attitude, has a more positive expectation. That person is more likely to take action in spite of a sense of fear. Consider this: winners manage their fear; losers are controlled by their fear.

However, even the most fearful person can overcome that fear with the proper education and training. Using day-trading courses can help to develop self discipline. Self discipline will evolve into self confidence. Once you fully believe in your own abilities (to successfully trade and profit from penny stocks), you will be able to assess and accept risk, and then take decisive action.

If the fear seems overpowering, it is vital that that fear be analyzed. Where does it stem from? From childhood? How can it be faced and worked through? The answer most usually comes through more and more education – both formal and hands-on.

Day Trader’s Traits

Successful day traders must think outside the box. They have to think quickly and wisely. When stocks are fluxuating at split second intervals, making a wrong decision, or ignoring a trade could result in the lost of a great deal of money. Does that describe you?

From the outside looking in, it may appear that day trading penny stocks is akin to gambling. And of course, some traders would prove that assumption to be correct. But they are not the ones who are consistently in the profits.

Day Trading as a Business

Rather than gambling, day trading penny stocks should be thought of as a business. You are both the employee and the boss in this business. You will need another employee – your broker. There will be competitors – the other traders out there, and of course the stock market itself. Just as with any business, there is buying and selling going on. The difference with day trading penny stocks is that this business is extremely fast-paced. (Roller coaster, remember?)

Another part of your day-trading training is to take a realistic look at your day trading business and make plans that will carry you through the long haul. What are your goals and aspirations? The first of course is to make money. But, just as important, is to make money consistently. How is that going to happen?

Working Capital

Understand that your working capital is vital for your business’s survival. Capital preservation is more important than capital growth. Reinvesting profits back into your business should be high on your priority list. What percentage of your total portfolio will be given over to penny stock day trading? Part of it? Half of it? All of it? Make that decision before you plunk down your hard-earned cash.

Can YOU Profit With Penny Stocks?

So can you profit with penny stocks? Absolutely, you can. I encourage you to learn all you can about day trading. Look for good day-trading training courses. Day trading penny stocks can be exciting and rewarding. And with regard to those statistics cited in our intro – they’re really not that scary – as long as you are in that 11.5%. And you can be. Keep your feet firmly planted in good basic foundation of education, and don’t allow yourself to be swept along by hype and high-pressure come-on’s.

Do that and you too can enjoy the cash rewards from successfully day trading penny stocks.

Three of the better day-trading training programs out there are outlined here.

There are plenty of freebies offered to get you started. There are simulators, coaching programs, webinars, mentoring. You name it, it’s included! And you’ll see there is something here that fits your wallet precisely. If you think education is expensive – try ignorance!!

So, while these steps are applicable to online training for foreign currency trading in the forex market in my case, if you think about it while you read this, it could easily be the same principles that you need to apply to become a professional currency trader in the trading futures markets, or trading options market.

Lets not waste time here is step: 1) Start trying to save your money today not tomorrow or next month.

To trade in the big league or you need a bankroll to play with, and one that is capable to withstand the ups and downs that are a natural part in the trading currency markets. For me, I know this is a problem for most people, but you need to just get an organized budget together. Then stick to it, and if you want it bad enough then it will start to add up to where you need to be in the online currency trading.

So you say “How much money will you need?” Unfortunately I can not be the one to answer that because it will depend on the trading strategy that you chose to implicate, and the amount of leverage that you need to plan on trading with in the course of a day. Also the amount of money that you can take out in profits, is just simply what is extra from what you need in the course of day trading. Though you should not count on having a bare minimum for you currency exchange balance, it you leave a little more in each day then you may be able to start to take more risk. And if you understand that risk means that you have a chance to make a lot of more money, then your on the right track. But I can say, that I see plans from $1000 to a years salary.

The Next Step: 2) Get online training for foreign currency trading.

Common sense will tell you that you need to get training in you subject before you go about risking you money. So with that said, there is plenty of free information to get your self started. With the free information you can get yourself familiar with the terms that they use in the currency trading market, with terms like “fx” meaning forex, or “cdf” meaning, channel definition format. If you just learned something with the last sentence then you know what I mean, because this is also free information that you are reading.

But when that is not enough there is many programs out today, mostly when you register for a trading platform then they will provide you with what you need to get informed in you field of currency trading. The part of the education process that I really am talking about here is necessary, and that is coming up with a good trading strategy that you are personally comfortable with currency exchange rates and among other things, as well as being financially sound with the money management strategy to ensure the long-term viability of your trading strategy plan.

Then the next step:

3) Which can also be simultaneously done with the last step. This is to sign up with demo trading account from a larger online trading broker. Then you can start practicing with your new found trading strategy, while not losing all you money to start, because the demo account uses play money and not real money. At your regular job or, if you have some free time and internet access at your work place, then maybe you can start to get a feel for how a normal day is while practicing trading.

So on to step 4: If you are then already making money trading on “paper,” so to say, and are comfortable with your trading strategy plan, then you need to go ahead and get started having fun with fx trading for real only on a part-time basis. Don’t include all apples in one basket just yet. You need to start out slowly and gain a decent comfort level. Then as your confidence builds up and you have learn from a couple mistakes, then you can start to move money from your savings to increase your bankroll.

Lastly step 5: When you can estimate that your average gains/loses from real trading, from following step 4, are at a level where and when you are comfortable, to say if you were to trade full-time using your present bankroll, you would be making enough profits that slightly go over and exceed your current employment salary, then and only then you are ready to quit your job for once and all, and trade full-time.

Remember, you want your currency trading profits to go over and exceed your present job salary. This will give you the opportunity to maintain a decent current financial level.
