Introduction to Forex Trading
Forex trading is one of the most heavily traded markets in the world with all major currencies being typically traded against the US dollar (USD).
As one of the largest and most liquid, the foreign exchange market is also one of the most accessible.
Also referred to as forex, retail forex or simply FX - it offers traders the potential to trade market volatility and also medium or long-term price trends.
Managing Risk in the Marketplace
However, there is a substantial level of risk involved with trading FX, and significant potential for losses.
With this in mind, it is important to attempt to manage your risk while trading. Below, are a few of the various steps you can take to potentially manage your risk exposure.
Risk Management Order
When traders act on impulse, they can forget to consider crucial risk management strategies such as their stop loss orders. These orders should be considered on the trades you make.
Triggered at a pre-determined price point set by you, stop losses aim to limit your losses, depending on the level at which they are executed.
Through your trading strategy, you should consider what you are willing to realistically lose or risk and this is typically where you can consider coordinating your stop loss order level to.*
Analyze the Markets
Market analysis offers a range of potential catalysts to take into consideration; from major economic reports, news and events to natural disasters.
Regardless of a traders' analysis style, historical data - such as price movements - and past news feeds should be fully analyzed in order to understand a particular market/currency.
FX trading involves a substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors.
Prior to trading, put in place a trading strategy and gain extensive knowledge of your chosen currency. When you start to trade, utilize the various risk management tools available and be realistic in your trade sizes.
Risk management does not assure a profit nor necessarily protect against loss.
