5 Most Common Money Losing Mistakes in Forex Trading

Think Forex is a Get-Rich Quick Thing

Due to the high leverage on Forex, beginners start to think that they can start with just a small amount of money and get millionaire in a short time span.

Try to Achieve Unrealistic Returns On The Short Term

They leverage their account too much and try to day trade. This way, they can start making good money daily. That’s a thought, but unfortunately that’s not the reality. Day trading can be profitable but only if made by the most experienced traders on the market. If you’re day trading, you need volatility. Most of the day there is a lack of volatility in the market. If there’s no volatility you won’t be able to make money. When that happens the only one profiting from your trades is your broker.

Think It’ll be Easy to Make Money on Forex

If it was easy to make money on Forex, everyone would be doing it. Forex is one of the most complex and difficult markets to trade and you can only make money if you’re good at it. The only way you can make money on Forex is to educate yourself and work hard on it. You need to read everything that you can about Forex. The fact that you’re reading this article shows me that you’re on the right track. But don’t stop here. Read everything that you can and study the Forex market. You should also open a demo account on a Forex broker so that you can start practicing and improving your trading skills. And you should never ever start trading on a real account until you’re making money consistently on a demo account.

Think You’re Smarter than Other Traders or The Market

Some beginners think they are smarter than everyone that can’t make money on Forex. That’s a big mistake. Some people are smart, well educated and can’t make money on Forex. If you start feeling you’re smarter than them you’ll believe that you don’t have to make big efforts to make money on Forex, and that will probably destroy your trading career. You need to keep in mind that Forex trading is a difficult business, and you need to work hard on it if you expect to make a living at it.

Think You Can Make Money In Forex Without Lifting a Finger

Some people think they can make money on Forex with no work at all. That’s a huge mistake. Forex is a market where most people lose money. If you want to make money at it, you need to work hard, educate yourself, and dedicate plenty of time to it. That’s the only way you can make money on Forex.

  1. Could not agree more. Forex is dangerous. If you do not have a clear stratagy you will lose. Remember, the markets are not ramdom, they are chaotic and follow fabonicci rules. So there is a chance if you understand what the attraction is to a certain direction that you do have a higher than 50:50 chance of winning. Its is simply following chaotic theory from Richard Davies.
