How To Make Money Trading Forex
Forex is the knowledge and business of making money through exchanging foreign currencies. Forex is not a new business and its history is as old as the history of money.
There are people who have been making money through Forex from many years ago. Fortunately, with the help of computer and internet, Forex trading has become much easier. You can sit at your personal computer and trade from home without having to make any phone call or referring to any bank.
How is it possible?
There are broker companies that enable you to buy and sell different currencies through the Internet and some simple softwares. For any trade that you make, you pay a small commission to the broker company that you are trading through it. You need to find a good, reliable and well-known broker company and sign up for an account with it. Then you have to fund your account. You use the money you have in your account to trade. Any profit that you make, will be added to your account and vise versa. Then you can withdraw the money you have made.
What currencies can you trade?
In Forex, you deal with currency pairs. There are four main currency pairs: British Pound and USD (GBP/USD), Euro and USD (EUR/USD), USD and Japanese Yen (USD/JPY), USD and Swiss Frank (USD/CHF).
In each currency pair, the first currency works as the commodity and the second one works as the money. For example when you choose the GBP/USD to trade, if you buy, you buy British Pound against USD and if you sell, you sell British Pound against USD. It doesn't matter what currency you have in your account. The trading software makes the exchanges automatically.
Fundamental analysis has a long term usage but good traders can predict the sudden changes that happen after releasing an important news about economic situation of an important country. For example when the news says that economic situation of USA is improved for 5% in comparison to the last month, USD will become stronger and people start buying it. So the value of USD will go up because of the sudden increase of demand. If you know the effect of the news on the price, you can take the proper position and make money. Of course there are two sides in this story which means if you take the wrong position, you will lose.
However at the first signs of trouble or a slow take off the people become panicky. Having been accustomed to regular pay check, when the money does not roll in week after week and the bank balance hits the low digits, there is a sense of panic and the exciting home business gets trashed.
My own experience tells me this happens just when you are through with organizing, setting up and the difficult transition period of reaching out to the customers, you decide to wind up the business in favor of a job.
Now here are a few tips to persevere and make a success of your home business.
Plan in advance your finances for running your family for a minimum period of 6 months.
Plan every aspect of your business – right from creating the product to final shipments - on paper. Don't leave out anything. This is what is called a business plan. Make it elaborate and group each aspect under a heading and subheading.
Home workers need to set a disciplined work schedule. Having no bosses around or compulsions of commuting may make you take things easy and relaxed. At least for the first 6 month work as if you are in employment and put in the required hours. You can relax and cut down on working hours when you start earning enough.
Don't procrastinate or put things off for tomorrow. Action is one major ingredient for success. If you need to do something do it today. Do it now.
