Tip#1- Stay Focused On Your Trading Strategy

It takes time to develop and implement a solid forex strategy. If you have found one that is working for you, stick with it. Don’t change it just because somebody else tells you to or because you can see somebody else making money using another strategy. What you can do though is work at tweaking and improving your current forex strategy  so as to extract the maximum benefit.

Tip#2- Do Not Copy Or Compete With Other Traders

When you are new to forex trading, it is difficult not to stay unmoved when you can see another trader raking in the profits while you may be struggling. It’s only natural to want to copy their trading style in the hope that some success will come your way too. This kind of thinking is not helpful.

Different traders have different trading styles and strategies and it is only natural that the pip and money results will differ too. One of my forex trading tips for all newbies is to be patient while you try and navigate the learning curve and don’t ask other traders how much they are making. It can be disheartening. After all, your goal in forex trading is not to outdo the other brokers but to do the best you can.

Tip#3- Know When To Stop Researching

In any field, you can always go on researching looking for a better solution or better way to do things. There’s nothing wrong with that. However when it comes to forex trading, the more you go on researching the less time you have for trading. Sure you will need to research and explore when you are just starting out but once you’ve found a system that works for you stick with it and stop spending any more time on research.

Tip#4- Do Not Get Over-Confident

Over confidence can be dangerous in forex trading. When you get over confident you tend to get more reckless and throw caution to the wind. You forget all about your imposed limits and you start trading big.

The problem with this is, one little mistake and you could lose all of your money in one trade. Don’t let a few good trades make you feel invincible.

Instead, celebrate your good trades but keep that money aside to tide you over those bad trade days. Make it a rule to never ever go over your limits no matter how tempting it may sound.

Tip#5- Take a Break

This is one of my favorite but most ignored forex tips. It is important to take a break every now and then. Continuous trading in front of your computer can lead to physical and mental fatigue, which can lead to you making a lot of wrong trading decisions. Taking a break will leave you refreshed and focused. 

I hope these 5 tips will help spur you on with your forex trading and if you are looking for more forex trading tips or would you like to share your tips? In either case, I’d be delighted to hear from you
