Nevertheless, everything is much simpler than it may appear. And be sure: most of the logical conclusions that are valid for the most business activities can help you to reach success in speculations on the forex market. I hope that these tips will help you to understand some principles of this business.
Trading on the international forex market is not much different from any other business. While learning new skills or profession a novice sees only questions around himself, because he is not familiar with the mechanisms and logic of a new field of expertise. In the course of the time knowledge is being accumulated, and the novice begins to understand that everything he's learned is interrelated. From this moment the novice starts to become a professional in the chosen profession, from that moment he gets a chance to earn money in a particular business.
The only difference between forex trading and any other kind of professional activity is that the inevitable mistakes that everyone make while being a novice are very expensive on this market. Sure, you could argue: “You can trade on a demo account without financial risk!” But the experience shows that a lot of people can “drive” the numbers in a trading platform on a demo account (and even gain stable profit), and get crashed within a few days after they begin to work with real money. This principle works in any other profession: as long as you don't do something by yourself (in our case – take real money from the market), you can not understand how other traders manage to do it.
But let's get back to the main question: how can a novice make money on the forex market. And then again we return to the well-known principle – ask someone more experienced. Not necessarily an older one (the age of successful intraday forex traders rarely exceeds 30 years), but necessarily someone who has been working on the market for a long time (at least several years) and has succeeded. If you don't have such a person “at hand”, you can always use one (or several simultaneous) services that provide forex signals. Typically those people who have significant experience in forex trading are involved in the development of short and medium term signals. By the way, these people usually have well-tried profitable trading systems which generate buy and sell signals for various currency pairs.
