Figure out which currency pairs best match your personal trading style to optimize your chances of success. Some pairs fluctuate often throughout the course of a day while others change slowly over a period of time. Which ones fit best into your risk boundaries? While you don’t have to focus exclusively on either type, make it a habit to choose the pairs that work well with your strategies. Consider patterns, not time frames, when deciding how you’re going to complete a trade. Watch for patterns which show volatility, like hesitation or reversal patterns, and those that are telling you to buy, like breakout patterns. These will show you what trends are occurring with a given currency and lead you to buy or sell.
Do not trade forex based on your impulses. An impulsive trade is a poorly-planned trade, and chances are the risk/reward ratio is not where you’d like it to be. Set specific trading goals, calculate your target risk/reward ratio and then set up your trades. Your risk/reward ratio should be at least 3:1. One thing you must know when entering the foreign exchange markets is the markets themselves. You must have a clear understanding of the forces at work and the likely influences on the markets. Take the time to do the necessary research, so that you will be going into Forex trading with your eyes wide open.
To summarize, there is quite a bit to learn about investing in forex. Do not be overwhelmed though, because there is a lot to take in. Depending on your situation, either your continued success or the start of a new challenge is dependent solely on your willingness to learn and also the personal commitment that you invest.
