Every day, huge numbers of brand new Forex traders start trading for the first time on the Foreign Exchange market (also called Forex market, or FX for short).
More often than not, they were attracted to the Forex market because they believe that trading currencies is an easy way to make fast profits, diving right in without first educating themselves on how it actually works.
Don’t make the same mistake.
Even if you think that you know, or have an idea, of how the Forex market works, it’s still important to get the best trading education possible. Even expert traders follow courses. Why? Because the financial markets are constantly evolving, and trading knowledge can always be improved upon.
So, do you want to learn how to stack the odds in your favour?
You’ve come to the right place!
We’ve created the Complete Forex Trading Guide for Beginners. Created by industry professionals, this 19-part series provides a framework that will help you learn the basics on how to trade currencies, and make consistently profitable trades.
Throughout this guide you’ll become familiar with Forex concepts such as:
- Currency pair quotation with base and quote currency
- Cross-rates, majors, minors, exotics
- Exchange rates
- Bid and ask price
- Margin, free margin, and margin call,
- Long vs. short positions
- Risk/reward ratio
- Stop-loss and take profit orders
Not only that, you’ll learn how to develop your own trading strategy depending on your experience level, risk aversion, initial capital, trading profile, as well as investment goals.
It’s very important to set realistic goals in trading, so you stand a good chance of achieving them.
If your goals are not achievable within an acceptable amount of time, you won’t be able to trade with the right mindset. Instead you’ll instead be taking unnecessary risks to hit targets that are out of reach.
