The Foreign Exchange (Forex), also abbreviated as “FX”, is the world’s arena for exchanging one nation’s currency for that of another. The foreign exchange market is the largest financial market in the world, with more than $5 trillion exchanging hands each day. This is seven times the aggregate amount of U.S. Equity and Treasury markets. The Forex market is unique in that it has no physical location and no central exchange.

The Forex market never sleeps. It’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A common misconception is that the market closes over the weekend. The truth is that the market continues to operate even on Saturday and Sunday in order to facilitate international business transactions, among other things. However retail trading is restricted during this time, thus giving the retail trader a chance to make money between Sunday at 5pm EST and Friday at 5pm EST.

The Forex market is made up of several different players, ranging from multi-billion dollar corporations to just one individual trading from his/her home. The market is segmented between commercial participants and retail participants. The commercial players include central banks, investment managers and hedge funds and corporations, just to name a few. Retail traders are individual speculators. These traders make up a much smaller group that produces $50 to $100 billion in turnover each day.

Have you always dreamed of financial freedom? Maybe you want to start your own business and need a way to supplement the income it brings in. It doesn’t matter what your goals are – Forex trading may be the solution you have been looking for. This high-reward, high-risk market has plenty of opportunities for the patient, insightful investor. You do not need to spend all day researching and watching the market; currency trading only requires you to dedicate a small portion of each day to it, leaving you with more time to spend following your dreams!

Making money trading Forex involves betting that the value of one currency will increase relative to another. This involves the trading of “pips”. Pips are just another name for points in the Forex world. The idea is to capture pips. The value of one pip depends on the amount being traded. For example, trading one standard lot means that each pip is worth $10 when trading a major currency pair. So if you capture 100 pips on EUR/USD while trading one standard lot, you just made $1,000 in profit.

Not necessarily. At least not in the traditional sense of gambling. In order to become a consistently profitable Forex trader, you have to start thinking like the casinos. A casino makes business decisions based on probabilities, not possibilities. By thinking in terms of probabilities, you will inevitably begin stacking the odds in your favor. That’s how a profitable Forex trader thinks.

Absolutely! In fact the only thing that separates the successful Forex traders from those who aren’t is the fact that the successful traders never gave up. Although becoming successful is certainly possible, it doesn’t happen overnight. It requires formal training and no small amount of effort and persistence. 

This depends upon what style of trader you are or want to be. We have some clients who trade for just a few minutes per week on the Daily and Weekly charts, and others trade certain hours during the day on the lower time frame charts. 

Any time frame chart can be traded. If you like to trade less but with higher probability we would suggest the 4 Hour, Daily and Weekly charts. If you prefer more action you can trade the 1 hour charts or lower. Some of our students trade only the 5 minute and 15 minute charts. Really this depends upon you and what time frame charts you find suits your available time or trading personality. The great thing with our trading strategies  is it is not limited to just one time frame chart or just a certain time of the day.

We have personal and business relationships with HotForex and Oanda.com. Both brokers are credible and use the MT4 platform.

Getting started trading Forex is easy. All you have to do is contact a broker,open a trading account, deposit money and start trading. That said, the ease of getting started trading Forex is part of the problem. Most professions require a degree, typically spanning four years time. But with Forex, you can begin trading today from the comfort of your own home. While this may be tempting, it’s important to understand that only 10% of Forex traders make money consistently. Those traders have studied long and hard to get where they are and you will need to do the same if you wish to succeed. Be sure to get educated before you start trading with real money.

The amount of money you can make trading Forex is largely dependent on several factors. However the true answer to the question is that there is no limit as to how much you can make. At the time of this writing, the Forex market is a $5.2 trillion marketplace and many traders have gone on to make billions – but it isn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination. How much you make depends on several factors including but not limited to your trading education, your ability to remain unemotional as well as how much money you start with. 

Studies show that just 10% of Forex traders actually make money. That means a whopping 90% of traders lose money consistently. Why is that? Simply put, the 90% of traders who lose don’t have a defined edge – something that stacks the odds in their favor. The absence of a sound trading plan and money management strategy are other commonalities among losing Forex traders. But above all else, 90% of traders struggle because they are making emotional decisions on the basis of fear and greed. This is why a comprehensive Forex education is vital if you want to make it to the top 10%.
