Advanced traders of foreign currency exchange “cherry pick”. This is a good habit. It breeds patience and forces you to think about all your options and which trade is really the trade that you want to participate in – before you ever bust a move. In some ways, it instils the same virtues as “Bushidō” (“武士道“ or “The Way of the Samurai”). As the samurai legend, Tsunetomo Yamamoto, has written, ”If one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue. Live being true to the single purpose of the present moment.”
So, you may not trade every Monday. So, what? And, you might not trade on Fridays, either. So, what? However, if funds flows are strong, pricing action is constructive, momentum in increasing and your charts confirm that the present moment is true, then you may just trade on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and/or Thursdays. And, if those trades are solid winners, that’s quite enough, is it not?
Are You Ready To Become An Advanced Foreign Currency Exchange Trader?
The difference between a forex trader newbie and an advanced forex trader is sort of like the difference between a kitten and an adult Cheshire Cat. The kitten is dazzled by all the different things that she/he can play with. The Cheshire is just waiting for the right moment to commence operations. The kitten wastes a lot of energy catching shadows. The Cheshire never moved from her/his strategically placed spot. The kitten finally pounces on what she/he thought was a nice, fat mouse – only to discover that it was a child’s play toy instead. Meanwhile, the Cheshire casually stretched out her/his paw, just as the real mouse went screaming down the hallway, bagging the real thing with minimal sweat.
Putting More Advanced Tactics In Place To Improve Your Foreign Currency Exchange Performance
Very experienced forex traders rarely trade on Mondays. They’re aware that most of the world isn’t even in the office yet, let alone trading. So, they look at the news and their charts, while watching the pricing action of whatever currency pairs they’re interested in. Then, on Tuesday or Wednesday morning, they will probably launch their trades, particularly if they’re “swing traders” and are interested in building price momentum. On Thursdays, they could be already unwinding their trades, preparing for the weekend (over which, they almost never hold any positions). If they didn’t get out of their trades on Thursday, you can bet they’re out by the time Friday noon rolls around. It all depends upon the global economic calendar.
Mistakes Advanced Foreign Currency Exchange Traders Avoid
Expert traders are interested in the average profitability of their weekly or monthly trading, particularly in relation to the amount of their average loss. They try very hard to not incur any kind of deep loss because they know that this will destroy their averages. This is 1 reason why experienced traders are willing to cut their positions at the first sign of trouble. They know the penalty for hanging around to see if things are going to get better (i. e., a potentially even deeper loss). For this and some other reasons, experts do not jump at every potential profitable trade signal. They cherry pick (i. e., trading only the really solid signals), using multiple indicators to help them.
