Forex Trading – Your Very Own Forex System

There are quite a number of online forex trading systems that are advertised to be able to give you thousands of pips on a single week without losing. That sounds like a wonderful deal that you could probably spend several thousands of dollars on. What is not made known to you is that there is really no guarantee that it could work for you. There is actually an even better system that you can use for absolutely free. It’s your very own system. You can take the time to develop your own system based on your own trading style and preference at no additional cost to you. If it does not work, you would not feel bad about any investment you made on a forex trading system that does not give you results.

It is not hard to develop your very own forex trading system. You just have to be able to follow the rules that you set up for it to work. There are two things that you need to take note of if you want to develop a trading system that works for you. First is that it should be able to tell you identified trends at the earliest possible time. You should be careful though because what might appear to be the start of a trend could just be a fluke. The second thing to note is that your system should keep you away from whipsaws. The downside of this, on the other hand, is that it could make you overly cautious and cause you to miss out on some trades.

Finding the middle ground between the two considerations is your key to timing your trades right. It is really up to you to be able to act on perceived trends while avoiding flukes and aberrations in the market. As you mature as a forex trader, you will get the hang of spotting the good signals and the bad. In the meantime, stick to parameters that you understand and can tolerate in developing your very own forex trading system.

  1. Can you share your simple forex trading strategy system?
    If you have a simple forex trading strategy that is very easy to understand kindly share it please. No commercial products.

  2. The best forex strategy is to be a forex broker or a shill for a forex broker. Even seasoned traders like Mad Money’s Jim Cramer have tried forex trading and lost big time money.

  3. I came across a blog that simply states the system as a simple forex trading strategy. Perhaps you can check it if it’s simple enough for you.

    The system uses common indicators where you can easily set up on your trading platform.

  4. Asking people for a simple Forex strategy is like asking people if they have a simple method for playing poker that will allow you to win playing poker experts. There is no simple Forex strategy that works.

    Forex is what we call a "zero sum" game. You are making a bet with someone else about whether a currency will rise or fall. For every winner there has to be a loser. If you are smarter than the average player, you may make money. If you are dumber than the average player, you are likely to lose money. Most of the people making the "bets" in Forex are highly trained professionals at banks and other institutions. You are unlikely to beat them at this game using a "simple" strategy.

    Actually Forex is not quite a zero sum game. It’s a slightly negative sum game as the Forex broker takes a small percentage each time in the spread. It’s a small amount but over a hundred trades, it ends up being a considerable amount of money. So the average player is likely to lose money, and remember the average player is a highly trained professional and probably smarter than you.

    There is a lot of luck in Forex, and if you play it, you will have some periods of time where you make money. This is usually because you are having a lucky streak, not because you have suddenly become an expert Forex player. However, most people are unwilling to admit their success is due to luck. They become convinced they have a system that works, and lose a lot of money trying to refine it.

    Further complicating the problem is the large number of Forex scams on the internet. Most Forex websites are of questionable honesty. You will find many people on the Internet that claim they made a lot of money using Forex. They are usually liars trying to make money. They will say: "Go to Forexcrap . com/q2347." The "q2347" is a signal to the Forexcrap site that you are being referred to them by "q2347." If they sell something to you, "q2347" gets a kickback. These coded signals can be hidden by different methods in the link. Other people will refer you to their own private website or blog for the purpose of trying to get money off you.

    I would recommend not trying to do Forex at all, unless you are a trained professional. It’s like playing poker with people better than you, with the house constantly taking a small percentage from the pot.

  7. You’re not going to get many independent opinions here (and certainly no one that’s not pushing a commercial product). Your best bet is to study how the forex markets work and develop your own trading strategy based on what you learn.

  8. There is no simple easy way to profit in the forex market. There is no single one step strategy that will make you money. Forex is a complex market and there are many variables that go into the movements of the currencies.

    The way to make money is through continuous education and lots of experience. If you are not willing to put the time and effort and a looking for a quick buck I would not recommend you trade forex.

  9. Well, there is no one simple trading strategy. If there were, the world would be full of billionaires! Forex, of course, is a risky investment area, and many people lose money — particularly as a result of commissions and fees.

    The best thing to do is not pick a given strategy and run with it. The best thing is to learn as much as possible about every aspect of forex trading as possible. When I started trading, I learned a lot from the articles, essays, and webinars at It’s my one-stop website whenever I want to learn more about forex. I’d suggest checking it out. Learn as much as possible — do not chase some seemingly-golden strategy in an effort to get rick quickly. It’s a marathon, not a race.

  10. The simplest strategy that actually has a positive math expectation is investing in currency pairs with a positive carry, say, carry of at least 4%/year, and holding these pairs. If the carry falls below 4%, dump the pair and buy another one. If you do not yet know what carry is, read about it–without this knowledge your are not ready to trade ForEx anyway.

    Please note that, while the historical performance of this strategy is relatively decent, still (1) there is no guarantee of winning, and the chances of loss a significant and (2) it is not necessarily more profitable than investing into an index mutual fund, which is very advisable for anyone who looks for simple strategies.

  11. A demo account is one of the best ways to see any kind of financial negotiation such as forex demo account. The account offers an introduction to online trading for beginners. Help for traders to test the functionality of a live account. More clearly, the Forex demo account put the concept of client permissions to view the account online and understand how the account will be executed when there is a real account.

  12. Making Big Profit through Small Earnings

    Gains 10 pips daily in the Forex market, which isn’t difficult for an average Forex trader, then it’s 50 pips weekly, 200 pips monthly and within a year it will be 2,400 pips.You might have not thought about it without such calculation. Certainly, one might accounts such calculation is too idealize and the actual situation may go wrong. No matter how, assuming making 400 pips losses per annum, that’s 2 months straight losses, but at the end still earning 2,000 pips per year. If a Forex traders can achieve such result, s/he naturally must belong to be in the Forex market.
