Forex trading is one of the most looked for occupations for many
people these days. Around the world people is getting tired of
fixed working hours and tight cubicles that limit their
aspirations of a more relaxed and satisfying working life.
In order to start Forex trading
the new trader doesn't need a fortune or good Wall Street
contacts that will let him become part of the chosen ones. The
only thing the new forex trader needs is some starting capital
(as low as $100, but an amount around $5000 would be more
recommendable) and the free forex trading platform that will be
provided by the Forex broker.
But one thing is to start Forex trading and other very different
is becoming a profitable Forex trader. In order to become a
profitable trader the new trader will immediately discover the
imperative need of having an accurate knowledge of the markets
and a good understanding of the forex technical indicators.
Concepts as Moving Averages, Fibonacci levels, Bollinger Bands,
etc; are the basic knowledge every trader must have.
This basic knowledge is indeed essential but once in front of
the trading station, with real money on the line and with an
open trade subject to the currency markets oscillations; things
will start to get tricky even if the basic technical concepts of
forex trading have been understood by the beginning and
sometimes also by the experienced trader.
Knowledge will start to fade in front of one of the most basic
instincts we humans beings have. Fear will ask for an entrance
to the traders mind and if let in by the
it will turn the making of critical decisions difficult and many
bad trading moves may follow.
It is very natural to be afraid and let fear invade us if we are
not really sure of what we are doing or we can not afford to
lose even a cent in a bad trade; or seen in a different
approach, the trader is so anxious and perfectionist that he
won't let him lose anything and will take it very seriously if
he loses a trade.
Fear is one of the worst enemies of the Forex trader. In order
to become a profitable trader it is essential that the person
involved in trading understands that he must leave fear aside
and stick to the trading plan he has constructed and arranged
before, always understanding that losing trades happen to
everyone and they are always part of a profitable trading
career. A forex trader must learn how to profitable use his
stops without heavily compromising the capital in his trading
account, i.e., he must play safe but realizing that a calculated
risk must be undertaken in order to maximize profits.
In short, fear is a natural emotion we all humans have given the
right environment is present; therefore it is the trader's
obligation not to arrange a "fear environment" around him and be
psychologically prepared for the ups and downs of the trade. No
one is prefect and that's an even deeper truth in forex trading.
