Trader is a person who buys and sells securities (goods, currencies, or shares) with the aim to profit from their price change. Forex traders specifically buy and sell currencies in order to speculate on the future value of those currencies. It is worth saying that traders do not simply buy and sell one currency or another randomly trying to guess what its price will be in the future. They conduct holistic research to figure out where the price is likely to move next. The research often includes studying the past behavior of the currency (technical analysis) as well as examining economic and financial factors that can affect the currency’s price (fundamental analysis).

How To Become A Successful Forex Trader

Forex traders
just starting out in the forex market are often unprepared for what lies ahead and, as such, end up undergoing the same life cycle: first they dive in headfirst – usually losing their first account – and then they either give up, or they take a step back and do a little more research and open a demo account to practice. Those who do this will often eventually open another live account, and experience a little more success – breaking even or turning a profit. To help avoid the losses from hastily diving into forex trading, this article will introduce you to a framework for a medium-term forex trading system to get you started on the right foot, help you save money and ultimately become a profitable retail forex trader.

You can follow these tips:

1. Define trading risk profile


Before getting into any commitments, it’s advisable to get a good understanding of the market’ fundamentals. Assess the capital at hand, research the markets and currency pairs which you are interested in and read the trader testimonials providing realistic expectations of returns. In case you feel uncomfortable with the dynamics, do not invest in the forex market, even though it’s profitable. On the contrary, if you think that the investment approach which you are following is in line with the Forex market.

2. Learn from your Mistakes – Successful Forex Trader Traits
Many of us don’t try to rectify our mistakes; instead, we quit, or we figure out some other way.

Successful traders are still in the market because they were able to learn from their mistakes. If you want to survive in the long term, then you got to have patience and persistence.

3. Choose a broker and trading platform carefully
Since the forex market is expanding rapidly, the number of brokers and trading platforms too is on the rise. This makes selecting the best broker to work with quite challenging. It, however, allows you a range of options to consider. This is an important decision to make and will require proper research. You should strive to learn your broker’s trading practices, the strategies they use, and the various policies they employ.

4. Gaining Knowledge Using Forex Trading Tools

One of the major hurdles for the newbies which could add to their risk is the general lack of knowledge as well as experience of the forex market. Fortunately, Olymp Trade offers various tools which help their clientele in reaching their investment goals. This isn’t difficult even for a beginner if one is willing to invest some time in it to gain some experience.

5. Choose your Account Type
Many beginners miss out on this particular stage. They often go for the highest leverage account or the most popular package and then lose their money.

Instead, you have to choose the type of account that will suit your knowledge and skills. Yes, the account types can be confusing at first, but for the beginners, low leverage is excellent.

6. Evaluate and settle on entry and exit points
A forex chart can be very confusing, especially to a beginner. One can get conflicted, leading to poor decision making which later results in huge losses. One way to prevent this is by relying on recent charts with shorter time frames. This will ensure you make better decisions. A weekly chart may suggest a buying signal, but before making this choice, look at the daily chart to determine its accuracy. By having your time frames shorter, you have a more concentrated look into the market and make your decisions better.

7. Setting your stop loss

Irrespective of the trading strategy you’re following, it’s always advisable to always set a stop loss. Setting a stop loss allows you in defining your trade’s closing price. Your trade would close once it reaches the defined level, even when you’re not around. Simply put together, setting a stop loss would give you the required peace of mind of not losing more than what you could afford.

Excellent points.

Besides that, we should pay attention to our emotions because they impact us the most. Emotional training is helpful to control negative emotions.

I agree with most of the comments here. Having emotional control is really important when it comes to succeeding at forex trading. When you accept that proper analysis can get you better results than just expecting the market to have mercy on you, you start doing better automatically.

I think being true to yourself and accepting your loss can help a trader to build an attitude on learning. And the person who is ready to learn at any time or at any stage is more likely to attract success.
 
Controlling emotions is one of the most important skills a forex trader can have. A person who can keep himself cool in a volatile market will be more successful than one who panics and makes rash decisions.

The second point you mentioned is definitely one of the most important and overlooked points out of all. When traders make mistakes, some of them don’t care about them and ignore them, while many others find quitting as a better option. But that’s not how it’s done. Mistakes and losses are a part of trading and we can do well if we work on improving ourselves, our mentality, and our strategies.

When a trader knows what they are doing, even the most difficult market situations can be understood easily. Practice your trading plan several times with small amounts before you take a big risk in the market.

The first thing you can start with is to gather knowledge about trading. You should study different materials like books, blogs, articles, journals, and websites in addition. Open a demo account and hone your trading skills. Once you build confidence and the right set of mind, you can enter live trading and expect success.

This is a great way to approach it, working on both your mentality and your strategies after making a mistake is the best way to go about it. Persistence is important, as well as being able to tell apart which losses are out of your control and which losses you can mitigate.

I agree with you. What would you advise first of all from the literature to read to a beginner in Forex?

Success is not defined by how many consistent profits one makes but it is determined by how many times you failed and still dared to stand and put in more effort.
To be a successful trader you have to be mentally very strong in order to bear and yet ready to learn. This is what is called determination.

To be successful in forex trading determination and patience play an important role. These traits make a trader strong enough to accept the losing trades and encourage them to work harder. It also builds a never give up and learning attitude in a trader.

The success of forex trading is entirely dependent on how well you can take advantage of the market movements as the whole of your career is based on checking the market movements and opening and closing trading positions in accordance with them. You will have to analyse the market and build strategies. It's just that you have to stay active and up-to-date with the market to make the most of the market situations.

A trader who can win over his emotions can win over anything in the forex market. Just learn to control emotions on priority. You have enough tools to learn and practice your strategies but if you can't control your emotions you can never probably make right decisions even after having the required knowledge.

Two simple ingredients for success in forex trading are patience and discipline. The trader needs to be patient while waiting to be able to make profits consistently. Being disciplined in sticking to a set of rules is going to be helpful for a trader seeking success.

You might be just another trader for the market and no one cares about how you are performing in the market other than you.
You take your first step towards success the day you realize that you have to play the game alone. From making mistakes and correcting them to finding a good mentor and following their advice, you have to do so much to become a successful forex trader.

Emotion is the enemy of forex traders. Most people get caught up in their emotions when trading, and it gets them into trouble every time. Emotion is what makes people buy high and sell low.

Agreed! Emotions hinder the ability of traders to make trading decisions rationally. The one who knows how to manage emotions properly is the one who actually succeeds as a trader.
