Top 10 Golden Forex Trading Rules
Anyone who has started their journey in Forex trading
must know that there is no shortcut in profitable
trading. You must trade a proven forex trading strategy
over and over so that across a series of trades, the
strategies work well enough to produce an overall
profit.
Let us show you some important Forex Trading Rules.
Always use a trading plan
A trading plan is a written set of rules that specifies a trader's entry, exit
and money management criteria for every purchase.
Test a trading idea before risking real money. This practice allows you to
apply your trading idea using historical data and determine if it is
viable. Once a plan has been developed and testing shows good
results, the plan can be used in real trading.
Do not risk more than 5% of your capital per trade
Having proper risk management means to trade within your account size. A
general rule of thumb is to risk not more than 5% of your capital. We cannot win
100% of all our trades as we do not have 100% control of the market.
If you do not limit your risk or keep your trading size consistent, you can lose all
your winnings for the past month in a single trade or worse, get margin calls for a
single trade that you have over leveraged.
Though many trading strategies require different risk management, a swing
trader may trade smaller lots as compared to a scalper for example. So, it all
depends on your trading style.
Invest in a solid forex education
Knowledge is power – we all know that. Think of it as continuing
education. Traders need to remain focused on learning more each day.
It is important to remember that understanding the markets, and all of
their intricacies, is an ongoing, lifelong process.
World politics, news events, economic trends—even the weather—all
have an impact on the markets. The market environment is dynamic.
The more traders understand the past and current markets, the better
prepared they are to face the future.
Always use a stop loss
A stop loss is a predetermined amount of risk that a trader is willing to
accept with each trade.
Not having a stop loss is bad practice, even if it leads to a winning
trade. Exiting with a stop loss, and therefore having a losing trade, is still
good trading if it falls within the trading plan's rules.
The ideal is to exit all trades with a profit, but that is not realistic. Using a
protective stop loss helps ensure that losses and risks are limited.
Control your emotions
Another key rule in the forex business is to always control
emotions. Emotions are bad in the forex business because
the market is quite disappointing most times. If you are
someone who reacts passionately when hit by
disappointment thus, you can easily lose track and lose your
money. In the forex trading business, you need to be always
pragmatic and ready to follow the logic.
Try to learn from your mistakes
It’s easy to feel discouraged when you start losing money
and you might even want to throw in the towel. The best
traders use their mistakes as teaching moments and
move on from them. Trust us, we’ve heard horror stories
about billionaire traders losing a ton of money because
of a mistake, but they didn’t give up, so neither should
you.
Practice first
Demo accounts are available with most forex brokers
and can be opened for free. If you don’t know what a
demo or simulation account is, you should know that
these work just like live accounts and will allow you to
trade with virtual money so that you can see how you
perform in a live market setting. Being that these
accounts are free, there’s no reason not to practice on
one to test your strategy or just to gain general practice.
Keep a trading journal
Traders that keep a trading journal write down
everything about the trades they’ve made, not only
technical data like entry and exit price but personal
reasons why they made the trade and other factors.
Over time, this can really give insight into your own
personal habits and if there is anything you need to
change about yourself or your strategy.
Keep the profitability in your favor
Keeping the profitability in your favour is to always ensure
your trade has a RRR (Risk-to-Reward Ratio) that is
favourable to you. If you have a stop loss of 40 pips but your
target is 120 pips, that is a 1:3 risk to reward ratio which gives
you the leeway to lose 2 extra trades before you can
breakeven. I’ve known a trader who only wins 35% of his
trades but has consistent profits monthly. This is because his
RRR is always many times more than the risk he takes.
Do not overtrade
The most common misconception among new traders is
that they have to constantly be in the market. Wrong.
Over-trading is a problem caused by a number of
different catalysts, however ,the main challenge comes
from not knowing what your real strategy is, and not
being disciplined enough to follow it. Overtrading, directly
or indirectly, has the potential for huge loss though it may
result into huge profits too.
Thank You
