Successful Forex Trading with Ease February 10, 2017 The biggest problem that most novice investors have is that they are impatient for the profits. This causes novices to lose money, miss out on profits and get discouraged very soon. One of the most difficult lessons that a successful trader has to learn is to have patience and when to and not to trade. Great success can be had by simply staying calm. There is this misconception that the stocks that are good will always be good and the stocks that are bad will always be bad. This can lead to a frequency to buy into and bail out of stocks as they shift throughout the day. This causes a flux within the currency value that does not actually reflect the actual value of the currency. This shifting is what people who are impatient often see when they begin to trade within the Foreign Exchange Market. This is because they frequently use short term charts that show only the immediate happenings rather than the long term effects of the currency. By using better and longer charts, the professionals are able to relax and appear to do nothing at all as they watch their profits increase. This is because they have learned the art of patience and how to make that patience work for them. This appearance of doing nothing at all is not a sign that they are not working hard, but rather one that shows that they are working smart. They have placed their money where they want it and are watching it increase in value. This does not mean that the currencies that the professionals pick will always increase in value. There are many times when the professionals will watch their positions drop in value. This drop will be monitored, but will not spur on the immediate action because the professionals are aware of the margins they have set and the potential for the decrease to become an increase. The professional will ride out the drop and wait for it to increase in value again. This appearance of doing nothing helps to ensure that the professional trader achieves the profits that they predicted. By doing nothing as the currency prices plummeted, they were able to ride the wave towards an increase again. If the investor would have pulled out, the increase would have been missed and the profits would not have been had. This would have resulted in a loss. Patience is a virtue in most cases, and with the Foreign Exchange Market, it is a prized quality. By doing nothing when the Market begins to shift, the professional and novice can help to stabilize the markets and economy of nations and make a profit on this stability. This quickly becomes a win/ win situation for everyone involved.
