Trading plan and/or trading strategy can be bought online or developed yourself in case you have the tome and know how to do it. What is more important here is to stick to the plan. Do not go off course when you hear about success stories of other trades who made trades which were not on your plan in the first place.

Think – maybe they won exactly because they were working according to their own plan all this time?

The process of choosing your forex broker is hard and may take you come time. But I am not going to give into that topic here. If you are interested in how to choose your own forex broker, you can read about it here.

Do not go big off the start.

That is one of the most common mistakes done by the brokers in the very beginning. Going big and losing, due to a lack of the experience. That is surely not the way to start off, right? Although everyone wants to see big wins right off the start, unfortunately forex market doesn’t work that way. better save up for the next trade… the ones you are going to put down after you have more experience.

Never stop learning.

“I know everything already!” – take my word – definitely not the logic you want to implement here. Or anywhere for that matter. There is no such thing as “I know it all” ever. New and new information is going to keep on surfacing adding to an endless supply of the knowledge in absolutely any field. And why forex should be an exception?

Reading up and staying focused is the key to more and more success in trading.

Be patient.

Fighting the market is not something you want to do. You are going to get badly beaten with no money – kinda like walking through the bad neighborhood. And no one wants to go through the bad neighborhood. That is why it is better to take a long road without any cuts. Do everything that is necessary to reach your goal, but reach it with the safe path, ok?

KISS (keep it simple, stupid).

Here everything is easy – do not overthink or try and build an elaborate plan for your winnings. Most of the traders who over-complicate their trading techniques are burning themselves on them, getting lost in the maneuvers.  So it is better to keep it simple and understandable for yourself above all.

Leave your emotions.

Being emotional is not the best thing to be while trading. that is why is you are feeling angry/sad or just had a bad day it is better to leave your trading until some other time, when your head is clear and when you can think straight without relying in your emotions. That being said after you toss a couple a drinks down it is also better to stay away from your trading account. Look at trading like you look at driving – it is absolutely necessary to be careful and attentive.
