All lies, the very existence of all brokers is dependent on you losing money. They thrive on your misfortune.. helping you win is like they biting their own tail. They offer these high leverages... because they know you are destined to lose.. Keep away from these cons.. they have lined up every thing including their computer systems to rob you from your hard earned money.. just think, who on earth would allow a leverage with as high as 99.5%. Unlike these brokers, i am your well wisher, run away! The big banks, the brokers and the whole financial industry are corrupt and deceitful. DONT TRUST A WORD THEY SAY. RUN BABY RUN!

I have an example I learned years ago I'd like to share and it involves riding motorcycles. 30 odd years ago I rode motorcycles with a group of guys, and they were fast. Thing is that as i tried my best to keep up with them gradually they always pulled away. I was determined to get this so I went out and bought the fastest bike on sale, it didn't help. after quite a lot of consultation one guy said to me 'go out and buy a bike half the power and you'll get it, and he was right. The point was it's not the bike that was the problem it was me. learning to take risk, especially with your life is not easy and the more responsibility you have in your life the less risk you are prepared take, and what's worse is that every few weeks someone i knew was killed on a motorcycle which didn't help. There's more, to beat the fast guys you have to be faster than them, and how can you be faster than them or even learn from them when you cant even keep up. You've got to want it and i mean really want it . I did beat him fair and square, it took years with equal bikes sadly he never rode with me after that and shortly after I gave up too but I never forgot what I learned.

Very eloquently put. Absolutely correct that traders often look for the soonest available "opportunity" after taking a loss, which is often substandard.

I use most of the time Divergence Patterns to make winning trades and it works great! But you are absolutely correct! I trade for more than 6 years and what you just said is 100% right! When you open small positions then you can easily apply all kind of strategies and risk management. If you are not on the right direction with big positions then psychologically it is very hard to sustain the wave's against you and no strategy will be helpful except if you have enough luck that market will turn onto your side which most of the time is not the case..... We need to keep in mind this video every time you open a trade! Thanks very much!

A decent trader will never stop to exchange, if the outcome isn't great even he endeavor to exchange. After at some point you will understand your trading botches effectively. To exchange well one must need legitimate rule. Frame my broker Forex4you I am getting legitimate rule which exchanges well. They assist me with knowing the exchange market conditions too. So now I am ready to comprehend the trading traps. Furthermore I get super cool trading condition.

Btw i Just trade with bonus and two Times today grr i changed stop loss in the win Area and two Times i Just left marktet on a small range and after IT turned in the big win zone But i won, you need to have big wins to compensate the Costs without winning 55 percent of your trades I Do believe adjusting the range is fine, But i was to narrow.

Every successful people in their field have their own secret strategy and technic. Now I’m not saying only about trading job but about everything. So if you want to be successful you have to build your own strategy and never tell it to anyone and keep going! If it doesn’t work change your strategy invest little bit and if it works then go higher

With all due respect, there are billions of traders out there trying to "Play The Game" & going down in flames. Take 90% of your money & invest it in good blue chip stocks & play with a small amount of your money. Stay away from garbage stocks. If you do get stuck in a pullback & it's a great company it will come back. I'm long AAPL. BA, AFG, AMZN, XOM, BP, & lots of small, & medium micro-cap biotech's which offer massive gains at times. I'm killing it now but sure took my beatings getting here. Right now the market looks a little top heavy so I'm 50% in cash. If Trump doesn't get reelected I'll pull the plug & wait for the correction to be over. If it looks like a Democrat is getting elected in the USA I'll go short as the US market will drop 10,000 plus points.

so 90% of traders lose, over how long is this statistic measured over?
Manoo42 (4 months ago)
I believe its a year, so 90% of retail traders are no longer trading within 12 months.
Rafal Z (5 months ago)
So 10% makes money... but over what period of time? What about statistical significance? There are always some people making money in some period of time but this is natural distribution of probabilities - nothing to do with skills and strategy. Markets are pretty much efficient but it is quite easy to fool people to believe they are not. Trading psychology is the biggest red herring.

i see the market as a hungry grinning crocodile. Unless you've really go your strategy it can and will snap all your profits and then some at any opportunity it gets. In fact, just assume it'll 100% take all the money you have off you like a casino, its designed that way... but if you managed to find the patterns and exploits and stick to them.. you'll be able to siphon off money from the market at a steady rate as I do. Most of the time I do not trade.

macnossa007 (6 months ago)
it's not quite clear to me when the warning on every broker site says that trading cfd can result in losses higher than one's initial capital. does it mean my account can go below zero?
UKspreadbetting (6 months ago)
In theory yes, trading CFDs could result in losses higher than the funds in your trading account. This is because you are trading on margin - you could be controlling a 100% position (i.e. subject to its up and down moves) with just a 10% deposit. If you know what you're doing this shouldn't really be a big problem - simply avoid leveraging yourself to dangerous levels. Having said that, if you are located in Europe regulators are insisting that brokers have a no-negative balance policy on retail client accounts.

Excellent video and absolutely spot on ! I would also suggest first starting out trading with smaller amounts until your ready to increase the size ... it also helps to restrict the knee jerk reactions, losses and also you get to understand the market/markets your in..

Great video i am fairly new to forex been trading for 4 months now i was told by somone who works on a Bloomberg terminal for a hedgfund that candlestick analysis and technical analysis is nothing more than a guess and unless you have a bloomberg terminal your win ratio and loose ratio with proper risk management would be the same as a professional candlestick and technical analysis trader who has been trading forex candelsticks for years is it true that we as retail traders are all in the same boat as all the othe professional retail candlestick chart traders once we learn the basics ?
Use correct stop-loss to be in 10%! Thank you, good video!

Forex market is rigged. It should be forbiden. There is no method than one could use to make money. Since you send money to a broker he only cares to steal it from you by moving the market against you. How he does that? They have acess to information that you don't have, they and the big guys act toguether with millions of dollars to move the market against retail traders. Retail traders are the fools in this rigged game. At this poin GBPUSD trade around 1,41. I garantee you that if you, as a retail trader enter long with a hiden stop loss at 1,35, and a hiden take profit at 1,47, the market will move first to less than 1,35 all the times you do that. If you put a short it will go to 1,47, before 1,35. When people give lessons on forex is because they want to make money not by trade, because they now that only will loose, or they work for brokers. CUT LOOSES AND LET RUN THE PROFITS, they say. What??? The only thing you will be able to do is cut losses because the profits will never run. Brokers are social xenophobe. They only let win rich people. You think they live only with comissions, spreads and rollovers? That's a lie. They are paid to move the market against retal traders. The IRS should investigate the emploiers and see if the there patrimony is consistent with the wage.

I took only 27 trades last financial year. I ended up with profit on all 27 trades and netted 33% profit. It took me 12 years of severe and heavy losses and working overtime for 20 hours for no extra pay jobs to finally clear by debts and loans. This year, I have managed to clear 80% of my trading losses too! And I'm in green finally! From my experience, time will mature you. Maturity will profit you.

Makes sense to short a 50% overpriced market, 100% overpriced market, 200% overpriced market, 300% overpriced market but the rules have changed - the Fed is manipulating the market like never before. I know how to trade well too, having proved to double my money in just four month's time going against the market. Problem now is being positioned far on the correct side of fair value and the Fed takes volatility out of the market, you don't have a chance of improving your account. The last 8 years have been the absolute years to trade unless you are ignorant and go long any valuation expecting the Fed to save you from your dumb decisions.

I accept what a few other comments said - it's not straight forward than it sounds to profit from Trading and you can easily lose money. Be cautious and get help from others who've made cash. I looked many websites and found plenty of great advice by searching google on websites such as easy exchange blueprint. I wish you luck and hope you profit soon!

It's time to forbiden the forex to retail investores. It's a scandal the banks steal money worldwild and don't be punished. Those guys should be in prision. Millions of retail investors are scam by them. The market move allways against them no mather what they do, long short, low, high leverage. Forex is a scam, so should be forbiden and the bankers put in jail.
