The right choice of your system is the most important factor in making your trading stress free. As a new trader don’t panic and don’t rush. Once you have decided to learn and master forex trading, relax! There is no need to panic and rush into live trading immediately. First take a few weeks to educate yourself about the forex market. Once you have read enough on how the forex market works, start looking for a trading system that you will be using in live trading.
1. Choose The Right Trading System
Choose your system carefully. Don’t worry if it takes time. Doesn’t matter if you spend a few months in choosing the right system. Always go for those systems that have 60 days of no questions money back guarantee. If there is no money back guarantee take it as a signal that the system is not good. Only consider those systems that have a solid money back guarantee. Make a list of the best five systems. Try the first one for one month on the demo account. If it doesn’t work, get a refund and go for the second system in the list. After you have chosen the system, you should practice it on the demo account for at least two months or as long as you don’t start making winning trades c0nsecutively. Once you have practiced and fully mastered the system, you should open a live account with a deposit of $250 and start from there.
2. Use A System That Has A Small Stop Loss
The best method that can make forex trading stress free is to look for a system that uses a very small stop loss something like 10-12 pips per trade and does not take a lot of time to give a good trading signal. Making 50 pips daily consistently can easily double your account every month. Suppose you start with $250 and make 50 pips daily. Making 50 pips means making around 1000 pips in 1 month. If the stop loss per trade is 10 pips, you can choose the lot size of 0.03 to start with. This will give you a risk per trade of 1.2%. By the end of the month, the profit will be $300 and the account equity will become $550. In the second month double to lot size to 0.06. If you continue making 50 pips daily, by the end of the month the profit will be $600 and the account equity will become $1150. Do the maths and you will see by the end of the year, your account equity will be close to a million dollars. So you don’t even need to start with a large capital in your account. Ignore what the forex gurus are saying that you should have at least $5000 to $10,000 in your account in order to make a good profit.
3. Start Small
Start small. This will also give you the opportunity of practicing more and further fine tune your system. In the first few months, you will not make much. But after a few months, you will see the equity compounding rapidly. There is another advantage of choosing a high reward to risk system. So even if you lose 5 trades out of ten, you will be losing 50 pips and making 250 pips. This should give you an idea of how important it is for you to choose a system that has a low risk to reward ratio or a high reward to risk ratio. If your risk is 10 pips and the reward is 50 pips, risk to reward ratio will be 1:5.
4. Choose Smaller Timeframes
Trading on 5 minute or 15 minute charts will provide amply of opportunity to make 50 pips daily with a small stop loss. If you choose the higher timeframes, you will have to choose a high stop loss that will be usually in the range of 40-80 pips. Around the London Open or the NY Open you will find a lot of opportunities on the 5 minute or the 15 minute chart that can make you 50 pips easily in 1-2 hours. So choose the right system and then practice it for at least two months on the demo account in order to become thoroughly familiar with it.
