There's loads of inexperienced answers on the internet

I’ve read a lot on the internet about why traders lose money and are not successful.

They range from using the wrong brokers, wrong indicators, trading wrong currency pairs, trading the wrong time frames, screwed up psychology, etcetera .… the list appears to be endless.

But after 28 years in the market, 8 of which have been working with retail traders, I can isolate it to 3 major reasons why they aren’t successful & they [...]

If you don't know which way the currencies are moving, how can you trade?

One of the most important skills you need to attain if you want to be a fulltime Pro trader is the ability to pick currency direction.

Now this is something that isn't rushed at the Banks when training junior traders. It's so important to the future career of the traders they take their time, sometimes a few years, to get this knowledge clearly squared away.

Some of the Best Lessons Come from Losing Trades

I had a good question from a trader today about my recent EURUSD order, which unfortunately ended in a losing trade.

The conversation started with 'Why did the trade not work out'? (This isn't the good question I was referring to, that's lower, but a good question all the same)

Now this was an easy one to answer as it was clear cut.

The EURUSD was in a nice short to medium term uptrend and [...]

Your daily routine should be systematic and needs to be habitual

Once you've signed up to T4T you need to consume as much knowledge as you can from the courses and then start to ask questions about various things you don't understand in the 247 Trade Zone.

Whilst you're building your knowledge and understanding of the forex market it's also a good idea to get yourself into a systematic daily routine.

The bankers routine is methodical and systematic and it's [...]

By | 2018-01-09T00:12:09+00:00 October 30th, 2017|Categories: Forex Psychology, Fundamental Analysis, Popular Articles|0 Comments

You've got to know when to hold em', know when to fold'em

I've had a load of questions of late associated with trading economic data releases. This is a tricky situation and your success will definitely improve with more experience on trading the economic data.

Kenny Rogers was right on the money when he came up with this nifty tune:

"You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,

Know when to walk away, know when to run.

You never count your money [...]

There’s Two Important Parts to Capital Management

By | 2017-09-14T12:22:48+00:00 September 14th, 2017|Categories: Forex Psychology, Popular Articles|0 Comments

Don't Override Your Capital Management Plan

As you may have heard me waffle on, Capital Management is the most important component of your trading methodology.

I think it's time we actually took this 'Capital Management Plan' a step further as there's [...]

The aim of "Probability Enhancers" is to micro-analyse an opportunity so you can hopefully reduce the overall risk in the trade. After all the more factors in your favour [...]

Make Sure You’re Trading for the Right Reasons

Are you trading to supplement your income or to cover your day to day financial obligations?

One of the most important yet least thought about components of trading is "Trading Psychology". As far as I'm concerned it's second behind 'capital management' with regards importance for your overall longevity and success as a trader.  Funnily enough both topics are largely ignored by most new traders until it's too late and they have blown up their trading account for the 3rd time.

Trading is [...]
