OPPORTUNITIES IN FOREX TRADING

OPPORTUNITIES IN FOREX TRADING

In forex the three basic secrets of profitability are to

  1. make pips.
  2. Keep pips.
  3. Repeat 1 and 2.

In September, 2011 someone told me and my beautiful wife about forex trading. The person promised to train me but did not. I searched online and got a company that is willing to train me. I travelled five hours to Toyin Street, Ikeja, Lagos for the training. The training lasted five days. We were done with the basics in 3 days. The rest was left for me to find my way. Maybe if an experienced person was very close by me I would have made consistent profit but that was not the case. I had to make do with the basics I was taught. Since 2011, I have made some profits and made some losses too. My profits would have been more than my losses if I had an experienced person I could reach easily. Anyway I am now on the profit trend for over twenty-four months in a row. Right now I make an average of 5,000 naira daily. It’s as easy as that.

Fundamental analysis, technical analysis and sentimental analysis are the 3 ways of trading. One of the key technical analysis which I learnt with 10, 000 naira some years ago is the pin bar system. It’s a trend reversal indicator. A fundamental analysis I learnt for free which am enjoying till date is the news fade strategy. This strategy states that after a major news release like the NFP on the first Friday of every month, the market will react in favour of the news and then will retrace after about 15-20 minutes when the news starts fading. The strategy is to wait 15 minutes after the news and then enter the market in the opposite direction of the movement.
