Always follow market trends while you are doing trades. Market trends are signing indicators for forex trading. If the market is following the uptrend do not sell the currencies that you have bought and if the market trend is streaming downward do not take risks through buying the currencies.
Understand the fore spreads while you are trading. The difference between the buying rate and selling rate of the two currencies is called a spread. For example if you are doing a trade the broker is getting one US dollar for 45 Indian rupees for buying and selling; then he allows you 44.5 to sell and 45.5 to buy. At the end of the trade you have to pay the difference of your total buying and total selling.
Always follow the time frames of trade larger than your current time for example if you are doing for 15 minutes trade take a picture of market trend the past one hour if you are going for one hour trade take the complete day trend chart. If you are scalper study the market large trends to understand the position.
Don’t try to involve the emotions in trade like when you lost the amount in the past trade this time you to take the revenge on the past losses occurred. Trade should proceed depending on the trends and rates not on emotions.
Select the right time which suites for you to do the trade and analyze the trends and situations of the market. Always try to do the risk less than 2 or 3 percent of your total trading amount. With out proper knowledge doing trade is nothing but inviting risk on your own.
