Every successful business has it’s own business model, a system which helps the business to generate profits. It goes the same for forex trading. To be a successful forex trader, you need to have a forex trading system in place to help you generate consistent profits from the forex market. Below are 4 major reasons why it can help you to make money consistently in forex:
1. Eliminates Emotions – Being able to control your emotions in forex trading is not easy. I understand because I’ve been through that when I was a greenhorn in the forex market. There is fear of entering a trade even when you see a trend in the currency pairs. So what you actually need is forex system trading, which are able to provide buy and sell signals. So you only have to follow those signals and carry out your trading without worrying too much, provided that the system is trustworthy.
2. Improves Consistency – For every forex trading system, there is a set of rules to follow before reacting to the buy or sell signals, e.g. avoiding trading before news releases etc. The rules are for you to follow and not break it. By sticking to the rules of a winning system, it only helps you profit consistently in your forex trading because you are doing the routine stuffs every time you trade.
3. Able To Detect Trend – Like what I have mentioned in my ebook, ‘Trend is your best friend in forex trading’. Many people do not make money consistently in forex because they may not know when is the starting and ending of a trend without using forex system trading. A technical trading system should have some indicators like moving average(MA), moving average convergence divergence(MACD) to help detect trendiness.
4. Determine Stop Loss And Profit Target – A good trading system has a fixed stop loss and profit target (may depend on risk to reward ratio or based on certain technical indicators). Fixed stop loss will help you to be consistent and not changing your stop loss every time. Risk to reward ratio must be at least 1:2, which means if you risk 30 pips, your profit targeting will be 60 pips. This is to have a healthy trading strategy, which lead to consistent profits.
If you plan to trade forex as your career, a trading system will certainly help you more than can imagine. The only challenge is that you may have to search one that matches your personality in order to meet your expectations. You can start off with a simple one which I have provided in my ebook for free, and I’m sure you will like it and find it useful.
