Why am I providing these free Forex lessons I hear you ask? The answer is simple, my passion is trading Forex and I just wanted to write about it and share my knowledge with you.
Because Forex traders are not competing with each other, I have nothing to lose by sharing my knowledge but a lot of satisfaction to gain from knowing I have helped you begin forex trading.
Easy Forex Trading
When you first hear about Forex trading it can be difficult to get your head around what it is all about, let alone how you can make money from it.
However, on your left you will find a very easy to follow, step by step introduction to what Forex is all about. You can start your journey by discovering What is Forex?
In essence the thing to remember when you begin Forex trading is that is is simply buying one currency for a price and then selling that currency later at a higher price.
It is very similar to stocks and shares in that sense although do not confuse the two, they are also very different as I explain in my Forex compared to Stocks article.
You Have Probably Already Traded Currencies!
You read that right, even if you feel like you know absolutely nothing about foreign currency exchange.
The fact is you have probably already traded currencies without realising.
Have you ever been on holiday and had to buy some foreign currency? Yes? Then you have probably also had to change your left over currency back to £’s when you returned right?
And when you returned from your holiday you may have found the exchange rate had gone either up or down compared to before you went away. This may have meant you got more or less money back than you were expecting.
Without knowing it you have already begun Forex trading. OK it is on a very basic level and you will never make or lose much money this way but it’s a start. See? Forex trading is already more simple than you were expecting.
What are the Risks of Forex Trading?
As with any types of trading, there are risks when you begin Forex trading that you have to be aware of.
As well as making a lot of money from Forex, you can also lose substantial amounts. You are not gambling as such but you can never be certain of any trade and therefore there will always be an element of financial risk and danger.
However, with Forex trading it is very easy to limit your risks to a manageable level. For example you can put in place what is known as a ‘stop-loss’ with most brokers (brokers are where you place your trades).
With a ‘stop-loss’ in place you cannot lose more money than the amount you specify. This means you will never end up in debt to a broker and you never have to risk more than you can afford to lose.
I would highly encourage you to actively manage your risk through ‘stop-loss’ as there is a hell of a lot of money to be made from trading currencies online as long as you are careful and take time to learn the ropes.
