Simple Forex Trading Strategies That Work - A Beginners Guide

successful forex trading strategies

All trading is based around the practice of managing risk versus reward, and the Forex market is no exception. These Forex trading strategies are the basic starting points, but as you will soon discover, these simple forex trading strategies become a system of highly complicated formulas.

Although this might seem like an unnecessary hurdle to get over, if Forex was too simple a method to make a ton of money then everybody would be doing it. There is a learning curve involved with Forex as there is with any type of trading and investment. So one of the first things you need to determine is how much time you are prepared to put into learning the strategies for yourself.

The less time you will be able to put in; the more you are going to need other people or trading software programs to do the work for you. You could always opt for a managed Forex account and employ a professional to make all your trades for you. It all depends on the degree of control you want over your investments. By handing over control to someone else, you will certainly save yourself a lot of time and effort, but you will also lose out on the satisfaction of managing your own investments.

Whichever route you decide to take, your decision is not set in stone. If you start out trying to do all your trades yourself but find it too difficult or time consuming to learn the necessary Forex trading strategies, then you can always switch to a managed account later. To become proficient in Forex trading you will, without doubt, need some type of currency trading and analysis software. This type of software can make thousands of calculations that would take you days to work out manually.


There are several different automated Forex trading programs on the market and it will pay dividends if you take some time to do a bit of market research before buying one. Another possibility is for you to subscribe to a Forex signals service. These services provide alerts (signals) when there are signs of a currency starting to move in the markets to enable you to decide whether to use that information to make a trade. As with the software, you would be well advised to look into the type of Forex signals available and whether the source is reliable.

If you are completely new to this type of trading then a period of time in which you just "paper trade" without risking any of your own money could be a good learning experience. Don't rush into trading with your capital until you are confident you know what you are doing. Remember the risk versus reward strategy. Once you feel comfortable, you can start to trade for real. Try to keep a cool head and realize that although Forex signals will be time sensitive, you do not have to trade every time you receive a signal.
It is better to make small, consistent gains, than to risk everything on what looks like a sure thing and then lose the lot.

To your success,
