Here's A Simple Way To Increase Your Forex Trading Profits…
Many people spend years looking for a trading system that will make them consistent profits but the fact is that most people ultimately fail to do so. However the truth is that even the most basic of trading systems can be made into a money-making machine if you follow this one simple strategy.
Successful forex trading is all about probabilities, and finding high probability set-ups is the key to making winning trades on a consistent basis. Indeed this is why technical analysis is so popular because it's basically a tool that enables you to find instances where several key indicators correspond to give a clear buy or sell signal.
So how do you increase your overall profits?
Well assuming you are currently using some kind of trading system, take a few minutes to look through some of the positions you've taken in recent weeks. You should find some trades that you took that turned out to be winners and you remember being extremely confident about when you opened the trade. You should also find some losing trades which you didn't really have any confidence in before placing the trade.
Now to increase your profits you should only be trading these high probability set-ups that you are extremely confident in, based on past performance and experience. Therefore before each trade what you want to do is to give each potential trade a ranking out of 10 based on how confident you are that a position will turn out to be a winning one.
It's unlikely that you will ever give a trade a 10 rating because no-one can be 100% sure about a trade, but you should get plenty of 8s and 9s. Now you should concentrate on only trading these high ranking positions, ie 8 and above, and ignore the rest.
This simple strategy can potentially have a dramatic effect on your overall profitability and can even turn an unprofitable trading system into a profitable one so it's well worth doing if you want to increase your success rate.
