The ULTIMATE Forex Trading Course for Beginners
Hey. Hey what's, up my friend so welcome right to the ultimate forex trading course for beginners right so this. Is for you right if you're new to forex, trading you have less than a year of experience or you want to learn more about a forex markets, then this course, right will, benefit. You greatly so, let's begin so. First. And foremost what is forex. Trading right, so forex trading right or the word forex refers, to foreign, exchange, what. You're doing is trading, one currency for, another. So. Who treats for x and y, so there are numerous. Market. Participants, or who treat forex for example you have the central banks banks. Corporations. And retail, traders so, central banks could be because right they want to. Make. Their economy, more competitive right, by devaluing. Their, currency. Okay. So this, makes their currency, cheaper, and exports. Will be more attractive, for. Banks they could be because they are a market. Maker they are making a market in. The FX, market or perhaps they are trying to hitch their own portfolio, for. Corporations, right it could be because they need to buy raw material so they need to you know get involved in the foreign exchange for, example if I'm, Toyota. I need to buy raw materials, for my tire maybe the tire is a I'm buying from India so what I'll do is that I would need to sell some Japanese yen right, and buy Indian rupee right so that I can take this Indian rupee right, and go, to companies, in India to, exchange for the raw materials, for my tires an example, and for, retail traders it could be because right you are trading, the forex market to speculate, to. Try and earn a profit to, know generate, a better. Return compared to you know putting your money in a bank right so these, are the few groups of traders who trades the forex market. So. As you can see over here this is roughly how the. Forex. Market be the inter the, web the network, of the forex market looks like so in, the center right the one which does the bulk of this transaction, there are central banks and the major banks right. Then you have the investment, funds and corporations, who. Are trading with the banks and then finally right retail traders like you and me here retail traders retail traders or who. Traits. In the market as well, so. This is the hierarchy right you can see that at the top of the food chain is the major banks the central banks then, followed by medium-sized, and smaller banks then the brokers. Okay. H funds corporations. And finally retail, traders and a bottom so. This is from baby bibs right. Advantages. Of forex, trading so there are numerous, advantage, of you know forex, trading number one there, is high liquidity right, so unlike stock said sometimes if you trade penny stocks or small cap stocks right, there, is no liquidity right and you have to pay a very wide bit a spread but for forex trader you typically have. High liquidity so, this means that you can get in and out of the trade right relatively, easy. Right, without paying. A huge. Premium or or spread, on it, there. Is low barrier to entry any anyone, can just open a forex trading account doesn't really it, doesn't mean that you must be a high net worth individual, and it's a trap nope barrier. To entry is no. Certain. Forex brokers, allows you to trade nano lot so this in return right allows you to better manage your risk so for example one. Of the big problems that I think most stock traders face is that let's say you have small capital, let's, say 500, dollars and if, you want to apply proper risk management on stocks it can be difficult because let's say you're on the risk 1% of your comp so $500, is I got 5 bucks if, you pay the, transaction. Cost it's. Gonna be more than 5 dollars right for stocks right you you you get, your broker to do the transaction or I think maybe one.
Round Trip is maybe really 10, or 20 dollars so it's difficult to apply proper. Risk management on stocks especially with small accounts but for forex it's possible because you can treat nano lots right, and also Forex. It. Doesn't have t what, we call the traditional, transaction. Cost you only pay the spread, right, so this. Allows, you to kind of like even risk $5, on a trade in, forex. If you are having, the, ability to treat nano lots with certain brokers so it really. Helps, you better manage your risk you can, treat any time you want forex pretty much is the market is open to in 4 or 5 from Monday to Friday so you wake up the market is open you sleep market. Is open and. Yep. Low transaction cost as I mentioned, earlier. So, just a quick recap right so, forex trading exchange, of currencies traded by banks corporations and retail traders and this are the advantages, that we covered earlier. So. Now what. Are some of the different currency, pairs in the market right there are three brought currency. Pairs that you should be aware of right the major currency pairs crosses. And exotic. Currency pairs, so. The major currency, pairs are are typically currency, pairs there are the. Most liquid right, and they have. A dollar element. To it for example euro dollar, pound. Dollar dollar. Swizzy dollar. Yen Aussie. Dollar and kiwi. Dollar and dollar, Looney, notice that they all have the USD, element. In all of these currency pairs and this seven currency pairs are the most liquid, currency, pair so that's why they call it the major currency. Pairs the most popular, and most heavily traded, currency, pairs and. If. You look at this right in 2016, right the number one most actively, traded currency pairs is USD, right number one followed. By euro. Followed, by yen pound, or Z etc, so. Now let's talk about the cross, currency, pair so so cross currency pairs are currency pairs that don't have a USD, element, to it for, example euro crosses right means that the, currency, pairs has a euro element to it right euros Swiss franc euro pound euro Aussie the. Yen crosses right, euro yen pawneean, Aussie, yen pound. Crosses right means that the currency pair have, a pound. Element to it an Aussie on New Zealand and pound Canadian. What. About exotic currency, pairs so these are usually currency, pairs which are thinly traded they have a wider bit asks spread okay, and the, swings in this market can be more volatile as well so. Some of these examples are dollar against the African Rand dollar, against the Mexican, peso dollar, against the Thai, Baht dollar against the Indian rupee dollar. Against the Turkish, lira okay. So, moving on right let's talk about the different. Forex. Trading session, so unlike, the stock markets where you have just in one session the. Forex, market, you have typically three different, sessions, the asian session the. London session and the new york session and they all open at different, times.
Of The day okay. And it's it's, even worse right there, these times of the day are not fixed because it really depends on where you are in the world if you're in Asia right you're. Open. I mean you're your timezone, right the time is different, compared to someone in you yo so, I'm just gonna go with a general example right and assume that you are from the US right so for the Asian. Section. Right it starts at 6:00 p.m. to, 3:00 p.m. EDT right. And this is doing summer period from April to October for. The London session is from 3 p.m. to 12 a.m. EDT and the New York session is 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT, now. What if you, are not in US maybe you're in London maybe in Singapore, Malaysia right how do you translate this to your own local timezone. Very simple just go down to Google and. Search for forex. Trading session. Hours. Right, so I'm, sure there are a few results right now the top few one that will tell you right what is the current for accession in your time zone in your local time zone just. Do, a search right forex, trading hour session. Along that lines right forex trading hours right now forex. Market hour session something, like that right and you will know what. Is the, current. Forex trading session in your time zone and. Next. Right if during winter period around October, to April right your Asian session starts at 6:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. est, London. Is 3 p.m. to 12 a.m. est, and New, York is 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. est. Ok, so. Which. Is the best session, to trade forex so I think, this kind of applies to, almost. Any markets right the best times to create is when there is volatility, in the markets because only when there is volatility, only, when there is price movement can you make a profit the market don't move you're, not gonna make a profit at all right you can squeeze blood out of a rock so, you need to be. Trading, when there is most volatility. In the markets and.
For. Day traders especially right the most volatile session is the London session, and to be precise, right the most volatile, period, is actually in the London and New York overlap. Session. So. You can have a look at this this is from a window you can see that this is the start. Of the London session end of. London session start. Of New York session end of. New York session so you can see that when London session starts right volatility. Has picked up and, historically. Right the market is most volatile during the London and New York overlap, as you can see over here. The. Volatility. Here is the highest, during this three, or four hours okay. Now. What. About when is the best days to trade Forex so the concept is still the same right you want to be trading Forex, when. The. Market. Tends to move right on a certain base right which case does, the forex market tends to move the most so. Tuesday. Wednesday Thursday generally. Is where the forex market tends to move the most right, if you look at this this is from baby pips you can see that uh this. Is the currency pair this, is the days of the week right and this are the movement, of the. The movement. Of, the currency pairs on average, right on this different days of the week so for example euro dollar on Tuesday, it tends to move around 142, pips on euro. Dollar on Wednesday it tends to move about 136, pips Thursday, it tends to move about on average hundred, forty five pips so as you can see that over here if you look at it right Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday, tends. To be when the FX, markets move, the most right, so if you ask me Tuesday when I say Thursday those, are the best days of the week to trade Forex. Now. Moving. On right let's talk about some common forex. Trading terminology. So this might be slightly different. From stocks right but generally the. Concepts. Right can be applied to C right so we. All talk about what is long what is short what is the leverage of margin what is a bit, what is a bit and ask and what is the spread, so. What is long and short so to put it simply right when you see that I'm, long euro dollar it means that right you're, referring, to the trade direction right you're bullish, on euro.
Dollar You want euro dollar right to, go up because that's where you'll make a profit so if you are long. Right you want the market to go up so you can make a profit. If. You are sure right it means that you want to market to go down so, you can make a profit this means that you have a bearish. Bias okay. So. What is leverage, and margin. So. Leverage we, first try to how much, more. You can trade relative to your account size so let's see, an. Example right let's say you have a $10,000, trading, account, right. $10,000. Trading account and you're using a average of let's say a one to ten leverage one to ten. This. Means where you can actually control ten times more than your initial capital this means your, broker lets you trade up to a hundred thousand dollars worth, of currency ten, times more than your initial capital so this is what leverage. Means, right how much more. Can, you treat right relative relative to your initial. Trading, capital. So. Margin is just another way of looking at it right if you just take a hundred. Divided by leverage so for example earlier. The. Leverage is 10 so hundred divided by 10 it says that you know your margin requirement, right all right yet the. Margin require. Is just 10 percent right so if you want rate her, at all one hundred thousand dollars worth of currency you only require to put up a ten percent margin which is ten thousand, dollars so just different. Ways of looking at it. One. Thing to point out is that leverage. Right it's a double-edged, sword you. Can make more in trading by, the same time you can also loose more so, let me share with you an example. So. Let's say again you have the ten thousand dollars trading, account all. Right and you're, using a one to ten leverage of 100k. Will. Go with a stock example let's say we're gonna buy some shares, of Apple right, say the shares of Apple is currently $100. So. Let's say you know shares of Apple has now moved up right two hundred and ten dollars one hundred and ten all. Right so it's an increase of 10% so. If there is if you're trading we don't leverage right you can see that you have actually made a gain of $1000, 1k. If. You are using leverage you have a made of gain of panky. So. If you put into perspective, right, in percentage, terms right, what, has happened is that without leverage you haven't made a return of 10%. With. Leverage, you haven't made a return of a hundred percent of your money. Okay. This might you know looks looks, good right and sounds really awesome but I want, you to to. Take note that what happens if the. Shares of Apple drops, by. Ten percent let's say right now from hundred we. Move down to ninety dollars so. Your capital, with ten thousand that's right it's a drop of 10%. So. You have lost one key. You're. Trading with leverage right ten times leverage right now, a drop. Of 10% you have lost 10, K so pretty. Much pretty much essentially, you have wiped out your entire trading account right when, the, shares of Apple has drop 10%. So this is why I say that you know leverage is a double-edged, sword you want to use this right with a responsibility. You really must know what you're doing so if you ask me if you want to learn more about leverage. On how, to better position size your trade right this is more advanced stuff you can go down to my website trading. With Raina dot-com / 4-h this -, Reese -, management, all right that's where you can learn more about risk. Management in position. Sizing. So. Now moving on right what is a pip. A pip. Stands for point in percentage. It refers to the four most currency pairs like the crosses, the major currency pairs it's the fourth decimal place so let's. Say for example euro, dollar right now is trading at one point two five one. One okay. So, let's say it moves up by two pips so what this means right is that it does now move up by two pips is big now the price is trading at one two five one, three right, so you're looking at a fourth decimal place over here right for the most of the currency pairs. For. The yen, currency, pairs is slightly different right so for again it's let's say straining a 120, dot 105. Pips. So it's. Now trading one. 20.0. Five right. You're looking at this second decimal place over here for, the yen, currency. Pairs, right so bear in mind right so P, basically, refers to the, smallest. Price. Move right in a currency pair and, one thing to note right sometimes you know brokers, they just try to be funny I knew you can even have something called the pig pen right so P pen right now for. Most. Currency pairs is the fifth decimal place, right. And for this one over here is the decimal place so you can really get email I mean you can really get really precise about it if you want to right so just something, to share with you right it's called the pipette.
So What is the billion ask all right so this is a, the. Bit right refers to the price that you can sell it and the ask, is the price that you can buy it so whenever, you trading Forex, or whether you're trading stocks right it's not just one price it's always to price the bit and ask, so. Let me share with you an example right again let's say for, euro dollar let's say it's trading at 1 200. 1/1. 203. Okay. The, higher value is always to ask and the, smaller value is always the bit so. If you look at this right and you, refer to to. What I just mentioned, earlier. The. Ask is the price you can buy it so if you had a long euro dollar right now I'm gonna buy euro dollar this is the price you have to pay one point two zero zero three if. You. Want to sell euro, dollar right now this is the price that you can sell one point two zero zero, one, okay so, this is what we mean by the bit and us the price that you can buy and the price that you can sell it and the, difference between the, ask. And a bit is what we call the bid-ask spread. Right so if you look at this right right now if you take this one - this one you realize that it's. Two pips right, so this in other words right is that spread, the transaction, cost that you have to pay to transact, with your broker so. Generally, right for major, currency, pairs the spread right it tends to be tighter tends to be smaller whereas if you are trading. Exotic. Currency pairs the spread over here tends to be bigger, wider so in other words you're paying. More right to create the exotic, currency, pairs, so. What. Is the spread yep as mentioned earlier right, the difference between the beat and ask. So. Now how do you read a Forex, chatter I so let me share. With you an, example okay. So this a Forex chart so. This one over here is a from trading view you can go to trading view come over here or I didn't get this access, to free charts. Let's. Have a look at candlestick, chart right so what do you see over here right now is this red line over here is the the price right now to create New Zealand dollar this is New Zealand dollar okay, so if you look at if you want to trade right let's say on the sell you notice that again there is two price the bid and ask. If you wanna say for example you see what I do I. Click. On trade sell, New Zealand dollar selling. In a bit that's. What we mentioned earlier right you want you always sell at a big, price let's, see it right now I want to buy buy. New Zealand dollar you're. Buying Eddie. Okay, so as you can see right. Now the bid-ask spread, on New Zealand Dollars you just take this one -, this one is 0.4, pips. Okay. So this is the bit ask spread, so, in other words right let me just you know break it down you know - what. It all means so let's say you want a long New. Zealand dollar right now right so, your longer this is the price that you have to pay so, what this means is, that.
To. Buy one New, Zealand. Dollar. All, right you have to pay zero. Point, six. Six. Zero, one seven, US. Dollar right, that is the cost to, buy one New Zealand dollar right now you have to pay zero point six six zero one, seven, you. Install it, okay. So that's a pretty, much how it works. So. Moving, on that's. How you read a Forex chart all right moving on right what is the Forex lot size so. Lot. Size refers to how, much of a, Forex currency pair, you can buy all, right so there are different lot size so the first one is what we call a standard law hundred. Thousand, units. Or. Currencies, right standard. Lot meaning. Lot 10,000, units. Micro. Lot thousand, units and followed, by nano lots anything, below a thousand, units so, nano lot is a not, offered by by. All brokers or I typically. Brokers. That a market maker they tend to be, able to offer nano Lots right otherwise, the, most common Forex, lot size that your trade is either the standard or the, mini law. So. How do you calculate your gains and losses right so let, me just walk you through an example let's say you know earlier. The New Zealand dollar example, let's say let's. Let's make it euro dollar it is still like the most common currency 1.200. One. Okay. Let's say this is the price that you buy un long L and this. Is the price that you sow a dry you so let, 1.200. Five, okay. So. Surprise. Pull it s right sell. This is long so, what is your game on this, trade well you can tell that you have actually earned four pips right. You can tell right you and four pips. Can't. Even spell it right, you earn four pips right, because you take a one. Point two oh five minus one point two or one that's a difference, of four pips but. How much do, you make on this trader is dependent, on your Forex, lot size are you trading a standard, lot are, you trading a mini lot or micro lot so a standard load right is hundred thousand units. Right. So generally, our, stand a lot higher a thousand units, right each team, right is $10.00 per people now. One thing to bear in mind is dead. Depending. On the currency that you're trading depending, on the, currency. That your account is funded right this this. Our figure, over here will, change over time okay so you might need to check with your broker what is the value of one pip to you for, one, standard lock so let's say you know you're funded for USD account and your trading euro dollar so, it will be $10. Per peep so if you make four pips just now you saw right you made four pips right. Okay. Let me let, me I'm, a little bit, okay. Okay, for people is understandable, for people right so what you'll do is you take four multiplied by ten so there is a gain of $40. For you on that tree right you, take the number, of pips that you have earned or lost right, multiplied. By, this, uh how. Many dollar per pip that you're treating right this value over here is dependent, on your Forex. Lot size if you are trading so let's say ten thousand you need to write it will be one. Dollar, per. Pip thereabout. Okay. So. This is how you calculate your gains, and loss, in forex. So. Moving on right the different types of Forex. Orders. Right so there, are a few types right market. Order Lehman. Order stop. Order, stop-loss. Order. So. Let's, talk about market order so market order is an order right, that tells your broker, that hey you know I want to enter the market right.
Now I'm, the boss I don't enter right, now so. The. Pros. Right of this approach is that you know for sure that you will be in the trade the broker will execute, the, trade, for you and whatever is the markets. Prevailing, price that. That was like - this is that you're actually paying a premium sometimes, the market is moving for us it breaks out it's you know going up up up up up and if you hit a market order you're, paying a premium okay, so so. That, is the pros and cons right of market, order. Limit. Order and on the other hand sir you enter, only if the market comes to your desired price level let's. Say you know. Apple. Shares now. Is trading at $120. You think mid last too high I don't pay, her $20 for Apple shares what. You can do is use a buy limit order all right and put, it at let's say $100 so this means that if Apple shares comes. Down $200. Only, then will, you get filled on the tree so. The pros of this approach is that you are typically, right entering, at a cheaper price right you let the market come to your price level the. Downside of this approach is that you might miss the move because Apple might not come, back $200, it might go up to 150 200, and hey you miss the boat man and, the. Other downside is that you're actually trading, against, the current, momentum because if you think about this right it's the market. Fill. You on the trick you're actually trading. Against that down move against you all right so that might be a something, that you want to know be. Aware of as well. What. About stop order right so a stop order is typically used right, when. You, want to trade a breakout when the market is moving, in your favor then you hop on and get on board the trade so it's like, let's say Apple, shares right now is. $120. And. You notice that this price, right of Apple shares has. Not break above hundred and thirty dollars over the last two years all, right so you. Want to trade a break on it on Apple because you might believe that hey if, Apple hits hundred thirty dollars there's a good chance it could be at 140, 150 in a few weeks time so what, do you do is you can place a buy stop order on Apple, shares at 120, dollars and, so you only enter the trade if the, price hits, hundred and thirty dollars and above, so this is what we call a buy stop order. The. Pros of this approach is that you're entering your traits all right with momentum, because the market right now the market. Has your back right Whitney said your back right so this is why you only enter when, there is momentum in your favor. The. Downside, to this is that this, might. Be of Spreaker right so what's the false breakout, is actually. Say. The market right over, here it breaks out and then it does a reversal. And goes back into the range so this is what we call a false breakout. All right so that might be possible right if you are using a stop order, and. Stop-loss. Order right is pretty much an order right to exit your trick if it goes against, you it's somewhat like a insurance. Right to protect yourself. To protect your, account if the trade goes, against, you so. Let's say again for example Apple shares you, buy it $100. Okay, and you have a stoploss order at $90. So what this means right is that if the, market, if the, price, comes. To $90, you will exit the tree all, right so this is what we mean by using a stop loss order, right. So the the, beauty, of this is that you're actually no cutting your losses you're limiting the damage that could be done to your trading, account the. Cons. Of this is they're you know often. Right if you, I would, say often right depending how you set your stop-loss everybody there's, a very. Possible.
Likelihood Right there the market could hit your stop-loss right and then reverse back in your initial direction, and. Then you might say oh man why do I use the stop-loss I'm so silly now I'm out of the trade and the market has went back in my favor so yeah you're gonna get dead quite a number of times in your trading journey right it's a. Fun. And parcel of trading so you wanna, Brit embrace this fact all right so this could jolly, well happenin if you think about this this is worth it right because what if the price doesn't. Go back into your internet direction what if it drops to like five dollars right you have pretty much you know wipe out a huge chunk of your capital so stop-loss. Order is like paying. Insurance right it's like to give you a. Comfort. Of mind to, know that you know you are protected no matter what happens right but sometimes right, I. Would. Say that stop-loss right it's like paying. Insurance it's such like to pay insurance but you know when when, the. Hits, the fan right you're glad that you have your stop-loss there to protect you right so that's the the, message there on a bring across okay. So. Now the different types of Forex, charge so generally, there are or there are many types of Forex chart but we're just gonna you know share with you dear, three, common ones the line shot bacha and the, candlestick, cha so. If you look at this one over here I let's look at line shot first, line. Shot typically, it's a it's a line on your shot right so he only shows you what it does is that it connects the. Closing. Prices of the chart. Okay. See okay you can, choose it already on the choose the closed open hi whatever but by default it's usually connects, the closing prices on a chart and it shows in a form as a line on this. On, the chart it's very useful to identify the direction of the trend if you if you're not sure you know what is the trend okay, so there is a line shot moving. On right we have what we call a bar chart, so. A bachelor, different. Okay, so I'm just gonna share with you how, to. Interpret it so, let's talk about the the green one you see over here the green one typically means something, like that right goes up okay. Okay. So. This is a green, color. Bar, chart so what this means right is that the open. Price. Right or rather than the closing price is above the open so this is why it's bullish right the market has closed higher, for. The day, so. This over here this line and you see over on the left is open, okay. This, one over here is the closed and this. Is the high of the day and this is the low of the day I mean sorry this is the low of the day alright, so if you're looking at a daily timeframe this is what it means if you're looking at a one hour time frame then this is the high of the one, hour time frame this is the low over the last one hour, okay. And if you're looking at weekly timeframe this is the high of the week then, this would be the low of the week okay. The Kulu of the week right, so this the again, open, and this is the close now, what if you see a red color bar. What does it mean well it's just the opposite actually, so. Getting. The tools okay, so if you see a red color bar. So. What this means right is that again right if you are looking at a daily timeframe this is the high of the day low. Of the day this, is the open and, this, is the close, this. Should be a quite common sense because this. Is a bearish but because the price has closed, lower. For the day alright. Has closed below the open so, the close has to me below D open so the open is on top the, close is below right so this is how you read a bar, chart and. For, candlestick. Chart. Okay. Let's have a look right same thing the concept is the same for. Green color bar okay, let's say green color bar. This. Is the high of the day the. Low of the day it's, called LH. So. For it to be green for it to be bullish right where must the open B. Well. The open must be below the close right so this. Over here is the open. And. This over here is. The close, make. Sense so. Now what about the, rate color bar that you see so with the red color bar is just the opposite. The, red color bar like this. Right. Here. So. Again this is the high of the day low. Of the day H. No. This is the low and. This is the high and, where. Is the open on the top or the, bottom well. If you recall right for the bar to be bearish right the open has, to be on top. Right. Open. And. This is the close price. Close lower, for, the day. Okay. Does it make, sense then. Let's. Move on. So. Now. That you know how to read the different, types of Forex chart. Let's. You know understand, the different types of Forex, analysis. Right so your fundamental, analysis you. Have technical. Analysis, and, sentiment. Analysis. So. What is fundamental, analysis so, fundamental, analysis, typically, deals, with information. Like, GDP. Across domestic, product interest. Rates right. A non vampiro consumer. Price index all right the macro, in economic. Numbers. Figures, right these are all things. To do with fundamental, analysis.
On. The other hand right when you are dealing with technical analysis, you are using tools like you know support. And resistance. Candlestick. Parents. Fibonacci ratios, and etc, right. Typically stop, that you know gills with chatting, right boils. And there are falls down and falls, under, technical. Analysis, and as, for sentiment, analysis you typically, try and engage the sentiment, of the markets you're trying to identify what, are the players, doing so what you can do is to use you know tools like the commitment of traders report it tells you what. Are the commercial, traders. Doing what, are the speculators, doing. What. Are the was. There about commercial, speculators, and I think was it was. At the third cake that category right so this, is what, the common problem one of traders report would tell you right what are the different players of the market doing and to give you a sentiment, in the, market then. You serve that the longshots ratio right know how many traders a long company a short to kind of give a sentiment do you know our. Traders bullish or bearish. So. Moving on right let's talk about the different, types of trading. Strategies. Right so there are many trading strategies out there but generally it can be broken, down into you know one, of these three position. Trading swing. Trading and, day trading so, let's talk about position trading so, the idea. Right behind position, trading is there. You. Wanna you know okay. Let me just get the color right. Is. That you want to capture a trend. Market, so let's say for example the market is in an uptrend okay. And. Then it comes, down a bit so, it's a position trader what you're interested is to capture the meat of the trend right the meat of the trend, right. You can't possibly get in near the lows or the, highs but you're just focused on capturing the meat so the meat of the trend right now in the bulk of it so that is what a position. Trader tries to do so, you're typically trading, on the four hour time frame and above the for our daily, or even weekly time frame and it's, very suited, right for those with a full time job because, you, don't need to monitor the markets all the time right you can just put on a trade go. To work right settle. Your commitments, and just come back, before. You sleep just check your charts once or twice per day that's, enough right because position, trading takes time to play up. Swing. Trading on the other hand right it's usually between the 1 and 4 hour time frame and it's. For those with full time jobs but you want a little bit more, right not so you know passive, like a position trader so swing trader right your. Goal. Over here is just to capture one swing in the market so what is one swing so, this over here is one, swing this. Is one swing this, is another swing and this is one swing so, as, a swing trader you're just interested, in just capturing, one. Swing in the market and that's it you're not interested in writing the entire move so. If let's, say the market right it's a in. A trend right what do you want to do as a swing trader is to buy near the, lows of the pullback and then as the market hits high you just, capture this one, swing over here and that's it, ok, so. Day trading right is I would say a faster form, of trading right it's really trading, below the one-hour time frame and it's, for those want rate for a living right day. Trading I would say it's quite. Hard. For those of you who have full time job because you know day trading week requires, you to actively, watch your trade manage, your positions and if you have you know full time commitment elsewhere day, trading is the last thing that you want to do alright, so for day traders right typically. You. Are just trading off the lower timeframe in capturing, the introduced, volatility. Right, so that's pretty much what day traders try, to do. So. Now, let's. Talk about the different types of forex brokers, right I think this is an important, topic and a topic that many of you are.
Want. To know more about right so for forex brokers generally, it can be broken down into one. Of these two categories right dealing, this broker and a, non dealing this broker okay. So let's talk about dealing this broker right so dealing this broker and I pretty much brokers. That are otherwise called, market maker some. Of you might think what man rate a market, maker right so you have you know like sort of bet blood against market maker because the handle stops yada yada right but just the thing right market maker is nothing. Wrong it's just the way the business model. Works, right what they do is that for. Market maker you're a trader right you would treat if the broker, okay. So. The broker would then what they do is they were if you're like you know consistently. Profitable trader they would you know usually, try to make your trades with other traders that you have on hand so they kind of net off their position or pass. Your trades right to other, liquidity, providers, okay. So they don't have to have anything dude. However. If they kind of see that hey you know treated. It loose consistently, what they'll do is just do you know trick against your, position right, they, won't purposely, no ha no stop loss and stuff like that but it'll just trade. Against your position take the opposite side of your position because they know in the long run right you tend to lose overtime so that's the way you know they they handle their business operation. Right they won't go, out of their way to purposely, you know stop your of your traits and the reason I say this is because the. Broken industry is highly competitive if, you're gonna do this to your customers right it's gonna be a matter of time right through social media to reporting right before the word gets out right and you can have a bad reputation and you know you might even lose your entire business license, altogether, so it's not worth right just. To turn a few measly pits from a few. Traders to, risk losing your entire business operation, okay but the, fact is that they will take the opposite side of your trade see they look at your past record and realize that hey you know you are not a very, profitable trader, you tend to lose over time and to make things easier for them they just take, me opposite side of the trade right and you, know squared, off. So. On the other hand right you have what we call the okay let's let's, turn a little bit more about this right so basically their market maker they take the opposite side of your trade and you. It depends right sometimes they can offer you a fixed prep sometimes, the spread is not fixed eyes slightly variable, right but more or less right over time you tend to realize that the spread of your traits are pretty much fixed. And. For. Market maker they allow you to treat men a lot so if a broker it allows, you to treat smaller, than a thousand units high. Chance right it's a market maker okay, and again I repeat right there is nothing wrong or bad. About market maker it's just the way they, run, their business is their business model. So. Now not dealing this you have what we call ACN, electronic. Communication, network and STP. Straight through processing so. Let's have a look right an on dealing desk broker right, so for example this one is an EC n right what they do is that the trader. Right. Will trip the broker and a broker will just connect you directly to the interbank, market right. Means you can see the order flow of the, other market participants for. Ecn okay, you can directly. Interact, with other liquidity product providers or other ECM, participants. Right. And usually you'll be charged a commission on your trade so for example not only will you have to -, a for.
Easy And right you can actually queue at a bit and offer so you may or may not have, to pay the spread right, if you get filled on a bit on the offer okay, but one thing for sure is that you will be charged a commission for every trade right, depending your broker how much we trust you right you will pay a fixed Commission, on it for this so-called service that a broker is offering. You. So. Another type of a. Nandi. Link this is what we call a straight-through processing a. Broker. What they do is again right here the trader right is the broker so the the broker will get a quotes from all the different liquidity provider right and then, share. Share. The most competitive one right with you right, so what they'll do is that this are currently the bid and ask right by, this liquidity provider a B and C so what they'll do is they'll mock up this, this, spreads slightly right and then pass on the cost to you so what they learn is the the spread right the, additional spread right, from. This uh course. That you receive from the other liquidity providers, okay, so this is how a straight-through processing, broker. Works so. You can link you with other liquidity, providers, right and a, spread is variable. For. This right so what they'll typically do is that they link you with the other liquidity. Providers, right they would, then help, you find you know the. Prevailing. Bid and ask spread, right and then they bring back this piece of information to you and then just add on their, own mark up their own spread right and that's, how they kind of earn it from. You right for this service that they provide you with the other, liquidity, provider, so this is like kind of you know one step behind the easy. Na you see earlier the EC it can go directly to the liquidity pool put in your orders and see the orders for this STP, right straight through processing you, can see the orders directly right the only the only the brokers that you trade with can, see the orders, okay. So this area's a little bit gray over here so. Who to choose right over here as your broker so you go with the ECM STP, or market maker so. For dealing. Des right or. Otherwise known as market maker I recommend it for new traders because primarily, right, they allow, you to trade near no Lots this means that you can trade less than a thousand units and help you better manage your risk all, right so this is important for new trainers because you, don't want you know go in with a fixed. Minimum lot size like one lot and then if your account size is too small you can apply proper risk management you might you know end up, losing, a lot faster, so for new traders I recommend going, with idling this also.
If You are a swing opposition trader I'll see a dealing this isn't that bad after all because as a swing and position trader your, stop-loss so it tends to be pretty wide you know to 300 pips no problem and. For dealing that's right even, though they're spread might be slightly higher the if you copulate the spread right as a as, a hard call it a spread. As a, function. Of your stop-loss right the spread is usually like what one over hundred of your stop-loss so it's very small. As. Well so if you're a swing opposition, trader right I don't see why you. Might not want to consider a deal in this so. For non dealing this I would recommend for traders who trade actively, right you're always in and out of markets right so this is where you want to get the best competitive. Spread, right so I recommend, it for day traders or scalpers to go with the non dealing deaths and, this is usually for traders, who are more experienced, definitely and have a decent account, size you give a thousand or two thousand dollars it's. Not gonna make sense to be going with a non dealing, desk, okay. So. Now how, do you select a Forex broker so I'm gonna share with you a few things you know that you want to pay attention to right number one regulation. Execution. Customer. Service ease. Of weed roll, right. So let's. Talk about this right so regulation, right you want to make sure that your broker is regulated. And regulated, in the right. Countries if you ask me right if you tell me that you know hey this broker is regulated, in Cyprus I don't care you know that is regulated because it's in Cyprus I don't even feel safe so. If you wanna you know make. Sure that your broker is regulated, I would suggest right make sure it's regulated by through, reputable. Authorities. Like you know hey Amy, yes monetary authority Singapore I think you have the FCA, and a. Few others right from UK Australia, as well so those are regulatory. Bodies. Right that you have more confidence in okay, second. Thing to take note of is the executioner. And how are your traits being, executed, is it like pretty, instantaneously, or is there like always a delay you get a record, you know your your your orders, get rejected right so, you want to pay attention to how the brokers. Execute, your trick, shotting. Is a customer, service I think it's important, right to have a life, help desk when the market hours, are open right you know speak to someone like you know maybe there's a big news release that's coming out maybe, your position got stopped out you wonder why that happens right you want to speak to a customer service that have offers live chat support know you know send an email and wait five days for reply, right it is that is bad and.
Is, A withdrawal you want to get your money you know pretty, quickly right I would say in this day. And age you should get it within five working days so I know it is you know telegraphic, transfer and. Stuff like that so either withdrawal or it should be quite easy nowadays, all, right so, let's. Say for example you treat, if your broker and you know you find that your broker did something unjust, to you how can you protect, yourself right so here a few things that you can do. Right. Number one record and screen capture everything, right every time you put on a trade or you for example you get stopped out right for no rhyme or reason right, record. The trade the chart right and screen capturing, okay. Second thing you can do right it's, a. So. Once you record and screen ship capture everything right before. You go to step, two and three right you want to know reach out to your broker first and ask hey why. Is this happening right, sometimes. It could be because is, that there is a big news event that's coming up right so this is why the spread, tend to widen right, and it's not the broker, wants to purposely widen, the spread, to stop you sometimes it's because there is lack of liquidity in the forex market like, before NFP, right the spread tends to widen so if your stop. Loss right etcetera is near. The. Market, where is trading right now there's a good chance it could get stopped down so anyway. Screenshot. Your chance and bring it up to your broker first and ask for an explanation if you are happy, the explanation, right and. Then you know trait, in a way that you know it doesn't happen or makes, it unlikely for, it to happen to you again however. If you're not happy if the explanation and you feel that now they are doing something fishy behind, the scenes right you can always bring up to social media okay, I don't know there are so many forex trading groups out there share. The post right and let. Others you know kind of you know give you their opinion, if they feel that hey you know is something, fishy something is wrong right the post will go viral right and the broker would get a bet read, from it and the last thing the broker one is you know to have such a bad reputation to, effect no future, business, and finally. Right if you still you don't want to do something, about it right bring up to the authorities right you for example if you're in Singapore, you can go to mes and you know hey them say hey you know this broker is you know I suspect, it's no it's not being fair right you bring them to mes mes. Would then you know. Find. The broker right and. Say hey I received XYZ email from this person right you know what's going on blah blah blah so the broker will get scared because they might risk losing their license if you know many traders you know reporter, of such cases so you can also bring up to the authorities, right and you know to have them look into the matter so I'll say these are a few things that you can do to, protect yourself right, when you are when. You are, trying. To trip, with the right forex, broker, all right. Okay. So with, that said right I have come to the end of this forex.
