Posted in Forex Trading, Submitted by Trading Critic on Sat, 2006-04-08 07:06.

Welcome to part 3. If you have bothered to keep reading until now, you must be enjoying my articles, right? We continue on, our journey, exploring some new forex trading tips to help you either get started or improve your trading skills. Make sure you have read part two before you keep reading. I hope you are taking notes about these secrets to trading the forex markets successfully.

In the last article (part two) of forex trading tips, we went through the concepts of keeping your greed in check with respect to the amount of leverage you take with your trades. Also, I recommended you go out and sort yourself out with a trading strategy. You must be independent when you trade as well as confident in your trading. We also discussed you, "the trader" are a LOSER.

Trade with the volume. Don’t trade in the off-peak hours. (unless you are really confident) The reason is that there is no volume, and the larger institutional traders may be using this time to hedge their positions. So as you watch the markets when you first start off, notice when your currency pais are especially active. Note when the markets for the countries whose currency pairs you are trading open and close. Knowing this information is vital, as sometimes these are the times when forex prices gap by large amounts.

Follow the white rabbit. Or rather, the black rabbit. What I mean is, follow that black line on your screen. Yes, that line. What line? I’m talking about the trendline that you arbitrarily drew on your trading screen. It depends on your system what time scale you are looking at with your trendline, but always remember to trade with the trend. If the market is going up, it’s going up. If it is going down, it’s going down. Simple. Bullish markets. Bearish markets. You can’t predict the future from past trends but acknowledge that sometimes there is a pattern – the trend that the market usually follows for a certain amount of time. Trade with the crowd – not against it. Think about what happens to you if you try to walk against a herd of people exiting a football stadium? You would find you would probably make no progress.
