    Default Forex Education - What is The Best Time Period to Trade for Profits?

    Forex Education Understanding The Best Time To Trade

    One of the basics of your forex education is deciding the time span you want to trade in. Sure there are forex trends - but they occur in short, medium and long term time spans but which of these are the best to catch for bigger profits - let's find out.

    Forex Day Trading and Scalping

    By far the most popular way of trading for novice traders but it's doomed to long term failure - Why?

    Because all short term volatility is random and support and resistance levels are not valid you can't get the odds in your favour longer term and you will lose.

    Think about it:

    Countless millions of traders are trading all with different aims, objectives and skills and to say you can tell what they are going to do in short time spans is rubbish.

    You will see a lot forex scalping and day trading systems sold that claim to make money but check the track record and it will say simulated in hindsight and we can all do that!

    If you want to learn currency trading, the first thing you need to do is forget day trading.

    Forex Swing Trading

    Swing trading catches moves that last for a few days to around a week and it's very popular and can be profitable.

    This is a great way for novices to start trading because it's exciting, fun and requires very little mental discipline. Profits and losses come quickly and there is plenty of action - you know if you are right or wrong quickly and you can put together a forex swing trading system quickly that is robust and will make you money.

    If you like action and are not patient then this is the method for you.

    Forex Trend Following

    The longer term trends last for weeks, months or years and if you can catch them you can pile up huge gains but be warned you need to be patient to catch the right opportunities and you need discipline and the courage to accept big gains.

    If you have the traits of discipline and patience this method can be the most rewarding of all but most traders can't do it.

    Why?

    Because when they get a profit they get excited and the bigger it gets the more they want to bank it before it gets away. Of course, a trend doesn't just go one way and there are plenty of pullbacks that eat into open profit and watching your equity dip short term by thousands of dollars can be very hard! In the end most traders simply cannot hang on and bank a marginal profit where they could have had a huge one.

    Keep in Mind.

    You can choose forex swing trading or long term trend following or of course you can mix them both, so think carefully which one suits your personality, before incorporating it into your forex trading strategy.

    You can't get the odds in your favour with a forex trading system that trades short term so don't even try it. You need to trade the odds so choose long term forex trends and go for them or swing trade - both work and can bring you currency trading success - Good luck
