By: Rick Williamson

Do you have a trading strategy for foreign exchange? A lot of traders believe that the greatest thing of forex trading is to be able to predict where the prices will go. Take note if you trade with that in mind you will probably lose here is why.

When we as humans try to predict things we are in most cases guessing. As business man I know if I guess in my past business ventures I would lose. The forex market is no different. Treat it as a business. That's what it is. Wealth can be built with forex trading. What a person needs is patience and something we call common sense. Like most business you start small, you can start as low as $200. Try starting with a little more as experience does eat profit. Do small trade to begin with. You could paper trade for a while just to get a feel of your system.

Respect leverage. One of the advantages of forex is you control a large amounts of currency with a very small amount of money. Remember what goes up can come down. Have extra money in your account to cover margin calls.

Find the right system for you. This may take a bit of time and research. It will pay off. Make sure you understand it. The more simple the program the better. Control your trading. Don't let your emotions make your trades. The key to consistent profits is discipline. Follow your system. Last but not least, before you start to trade. Open your fake money account and practice trading. Get a feel for the system because when you put real money down it is for real then.

So open that demo account and start trading to bring consistent gains. Soon after you'll be ready to make the real money in the world of forex.
