Before You Start Learning Forex
But, at least, can I know the best duration for a single trade, or it depens on the circumstations? You said, short timeframes are not good. How long do you usually leave your positions open? It depends on the conditions. It is impossible to say how many trade setups we will have every day or every month.
Is there a minimum duration per single trade you can recommend? We hold the positions till they either hit the stop loss or target. It is not clear to us how long it takes. This site is absolutely brilliant! I have never seen something so detailed and clear before. Hello LuckScout team, thanks a lot for this massive content of relevant information about trading.
For me as a beginner the page is overwhelming. As I said it is a criticism but please it is only well meant! I appreciate your work and if you may have time to consider it, it would make me happy. Sorry to hear that this page looks confusing to you. One way I can figure out is that you leave this page open and then right click on each of the articles titles from the beginning and open them on a new tab. You can highlight the titles, so that you know which one you have opened and read.
Just please start from the beginning of this page. There are certain words and phrases in each article, that are automatically turned into links. Take this article for example, in the first paragraph, those phrases are: I did not understand this at first and read a lot of them and like you, became overwhelmed because this site contains hundreds of articles.
And indeed there are some more numbered links in the linked articles. But if you look closely, most of them the links inside the links are also in one of the lists of this main article.
The same goes for a lot of other links. No, we look for the individual trade setup that form on any of the daily, weekly or monthly time frames. You are an excellent mentor and very grounded person..
Not sure if you allow me to translation this great article into Chinese and some others maybe in the future? The copy right will be your for sure. You might have different concerns, such as the quality of the translation so it is understandable if you want to keep it in English version only. I think it is better to have the articles in English. Any translation can hurt the real meaning of what I was trying to say.
Am 2months old in trading am happy to have met Chris as my mentor. After going through every link in https: Am using daily and Ihr times frames to follow the market.

Thanks and glad to be back. I am almost ready to open a small live account. I realize that I need to stop pressing the button every time I find a so so trade setup. I need to trade like a predator and not be the prey…I need to be patient, control my emotions and wait for the too strong setups!
Profits will come if I do these things…!! The challenge for me is to not jump around and stay on task as I take each lesson step by step. This is really great that you have a background about and trading.
You are several steps ahead of others. I suggest you to learn the strong and profitable candlestick patterns that I follow, and you are done. I published an article about these patterns yesterday: So, there is only a few or few articles that you have to read to start trading.
After that, please master these candlestick patterns through demo trading and make sure to repeat your success for six consecutive months at least.
Then you can start with a too small live account: I have always the same problem but Now I am trying to focus. Sometimes when I dont understand things I get so frustated but I dont let it be a permanent depression rather I study more.
