Here I am going to give you a checklist on how to get started in forex trading from home in just 14 days and then be on target to make triple digit profits in under 30 minutes a day …
What inspired me to write this article is the "turtle experiment" where Richard Dennis taught a group of traders to trade in just 14 days and they went on to make hundreds of millions of dollars. You probably will not make as much money as this group but it shows anyone can learn and anyone can be successful, if they have the right forex education.
Lets get started and the first area to focus on is learning about forex charts and formations and all this information is available free online. You need to focus on long term trend following and base your strategy on breakouts.
We have written about these frequently simply look up our other articles. Once you have this mastered, check some indicators to time you're trading signals and take your time two great ones to start with are the stochastic and RSI, so look them up.
You will now have a simple robust forex trading strategy you can apply for profit. Do not think simple systems do not make money – they do. Simple systems are robust and easy to understand and will enable you to have confidence and discipline which is essential for currency trading success.
Discipline is what separates winners from losers.
You must be able to apply your trading system through losing periods with discipline until you hit a home run and if you cant do it – you do not have a system.
It's always good to get some lessons from the pros and some books which are from traders who have walked the walk and do not just talk the talk.
Here are a few which I think can help any trader.
The Disciplined Trader – Mark Douglas
This is simply one of the best books on trading discipline you will read and for any newbie trader who thinks discipline is easy, read it and you will see why its not and why most traders cant master it.
Another excellent book is.
The Way of the Turtle – Curtis Faith
The most successful of the turtle group we discussed earlier, its essential reading and very inspiring as well.
Finally I simply love the book – Trader Vic Methods of a Wall Street Master by Victor Sperandeo.
This guy is simply consistent decision after decade of huge returns and you get a bit of everything in this book.
The above 3 books will cost you less than a $ 100.00 but will give you some great insight on the discipline side and what it takes to be a winner and pay for themselves many times over.
When you come to trade your system, make sure that you have enough cash forget trading with $ 50 d and get a reasonable amount so you have staying power. $ 500 – 1,000 is a bare minimum and preferably $ 5,000.
Do not over leakage, take it gently to start, forget about 200: 1 leverage and start at 10.
You are in this for the long run and you need to reserve equity and build your base.
Once your system is set you are ready to roll, do not believe all the people who say you should try and improve their system, or keep journals of your losses its complete waste of time.
You are going to lose, that's trading and the perfect system does not exist.
I have used the same system for 25 years and never changed it sure it loses but overall it gives me great annual profits for less than 30 minutes work a day and the system enclosed can do the same for you, allowing you to become a profitable forex trader from home.
Follow the above steps and you could be on the road to currency trading success in just 2 weeks and making profits in around 30 minutes day.
