    The importance of having YOUR OWN strategy

    What do I mean by that?

    Of course, you can take one of gazillion strategies, offered by the internet, but still there are a lot of variables in trading that should be taken into consideration.


    First, what is a strategy?

    This is a combination of trading system (discretionary or mechanical), capital management and position micro-management (should you hold your winners, when to filter your trades, when to add to your position or to cover some of the risk)

    I guess, the last one is one of the most important things (position micro-management).

    You can have absolutely wrong directional bias, but still make money.


    There are coulple of examples:


    I trade with short-term strategy and spot very small imbalances. My friend is a swing trader, and we have different perspectives on the market.

    I bought twice, covered quickly and made some money:

    example 1.jpg


    ...while my friend at the same time went short and made money on his trade too:

    example2.jpg


    This example shows relative importance of position management comparing to directional bias.

    Peter Brandt, one of the most successfull world traders says: "I may think I know, but in reality I don't know".

    To manage your position properly, you should know your trading niche.

    Are you a swing trader? Are you short-term momentum trader? Are you a position trader?

    Your trading niche must be selected considering your ability to manage your trades (you should have enough free time to follow markets or have psychological ability to trade short-term or to have guts to hold your winners e t.c.) Know more about it here

    Make some research and explore - what you can do on the marketplace. That will be the most rewarding experience in your trading.

    i agree with you you must work with a trading strategy to know when and where you must open an order .also i think you must develop your own strategy because this market is a dynamic market that mean your strategy may not work for some times so you must develop your strategy and you must develop your own skills .

    Every trader should have own strategy to trade in forex market.because you can get profit but you do not able to learn .you can trade by other signal but you have to leanr well if you want to success in this business.support and resistance is then basic and easy strategy for a new trader.a newbie should learn well then should trade in real account.

    i have 3 months of expeirence, and i am not that much good in this business to make and use my own strategy because this requires knowledge and skills and experience. but yes, if you have your own strategy than surely you would be earning a lot.

    I consider I am still beginner in the forex market and do not know to do my job strategy myself and it is best that we are relying on the strategy of one of professional traders and can we Edited by only put points when entering different and targets in different places, but the foundation is strategic located at the professional traders

    Forming our own trading strategies will allow us to consider our own risk capacity and profits expectations. When we formulate our trading strategy we are relying on our own skills and knowledge. After all its better to rely on on our own knowledge and skills than to rely on other's predictions.
