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. If you don't have any at all then well forget it, your account will be dry in no time at all. But in the same way if you don't respect it, you can have some major 'whipsaw holes' in your capital.

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

Your Most Recent Performance is the Best Gauge

We're always looking for an edge over the market when we're trading. You know, trying new things, looking at a range of indicators, or analysing the performance of some other secret system you've 'thought up'. These additional tit bits are what we call probability enhancers.

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

By | 2017-08-28T17:57:22+00:00 August 28th, 2017|Categories: Forex Psychology, Popular Articles|0 Comments

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 [...]

How to overcome the FOMO in trading

By | 2017-09-28T21:26:06+00:00 July 25th, 2017|Categories: Forex Psychology, Popular Articles|0 Comments

FOMO - The Fear Of Missing Out

This is FOMO—fear of missing out, is defined as “a pervasive apprehension that others might be having rewarding experiences from which one is absent.”

When you consistently “connect” with people, you become vulnerable to the comparison game and this can be extremely detrimental to everything you're trying to achieve.

The FOMO can be a major barrier for traders. If you fail to understand and acknowledge it then you could be headed towards a path of destruction [...]

Trade with the Market, Not Against it!

Ever since I started as a Junior trader (fresh out of university) with Citibank I was trained to 'trade with the market' and it's been my mantra ever since I established Traders4Traders back in 2009. But funnily enough it's one of the first questions I'm asked by new traders: "What the hell do you mean?"

Well it's all about trading the flow of the currencies. Don't fight them, work with them.

The only way to identify [...]

It all starts with the Central Banks

One of the key skills you need to acquire as a trader is the ability to identify good trading opportunities.

Now this is not simply being able to draw trendlines and understand technical analysis. That is a key component for sure but what I'm talking about is the step before, identifying currency direction and potential trading opportunities.

To get an understanding of what I mean I need to explain how the 'Fundamental' market works.
