Mastering the art of forex trading is not as simple as it seems. Every single day the number of retail traders in the online trading community is increasing at an exponential rate due to its extreme level of profit potential. The expert traders at Saxo have secured their financial freedom in life just by trading the live assets in the market. But in order to make money in the online trading world, you need to know how to handle your forex trading account on the market. Unlike the professional traders, the novice traders in the financial industry jump into the online trading world without knowing about the market details and thus they lose a huge amount of money. In this article, we will discuss how to become a professional trader in the forex trading world.

 

Consider trading as your business

In order to develop yourself as a professional forex trader, you need to consider trading as your business. If you look at the professional traders in the financial market then you will notice that every single one of them is trading the live assets in their forex trading account with an extreme level of discipline. Just like the professional business man the expert in the financial industry also has a solid trading plan to trade the live assets in the market. Most of the novice traders in the financial market consider trading as a get rich quick scheme and ultimately loses money in the online trading world. So if you truly want to become a professional trader then make sure that you develop a trader’s mentality and consider trading as your business.

 

Develop a perfect system

The more you will read the more you learn. The expert in the financial market always trades the financial instrument with their own trading system. But in order to develop your own trading system, you need to have a solid understanding of the basics if the financial market. If you are relatively new in this industry then make sure that you are not using your forex trading account with real money rather use demo trading account to develop your own trading system in the market. Even the most experienced traders in the forex market use the demo trading environment to develop their own trading system since there is no risk exposure at all. But when you develop your own system in the market make sure that you follow all the basic trading parameters.

 

Know your own risk tolerance level

Most of the novice traders in the forex market loses money in forex trading since they trade high lot size trade in the market. It’s true that if you trade with high lot size then sometimes you will earn huge amount of money in single trade but in the long run, you will never become a profitable trader. In order to become a professional trader in the forex market you always need to follow proper risk management factors in every single trade since it is one the key ingredient to becoming a profitable trader in the market. But risk tolerance level tends to vary from traders to traders. So you should know your own risk tolerance level in the market based on that set your lot size before the execution of trade in the market

On the other hand... Billionaire George Soros said he became very wealthy because he is greedier than most traders. He knew what he was doing and bet heavily.

Yes, yes, but how do you develop a "perfect system"?

by realizing there is no "perfect" system from the start and then living with that and be willing to accept that you will be wrong at times and always, ALWAYS use stops. Also find a trading methodology and time frame and risk levels that fit with your emotional make up - this is MUY importante, if you do these things you have a chance and IMO are off to a good start.
