Learn How You can make Money trading the Forex Market

Jun 2, 2008
There are many ways that you can make money in the forex market. This discussion makes sure that you are considering all your options when looking at Forex Trading as a money making opportunity. After all, the main purpose of Forex Trading is to make money.

There are so many forex traders that follow a particular way of forex trading and in the end don't succeed in the main goal of making money. This is because their ego, pride and determination to succeed at a particular method has the effect of blinding them to other forex trading money making opportunities. Let's look at these Forex trading money making opportunities in more detail.

Option 1:- The self trader is someone who generally develops a personal money making trading method. This is done by doing a few forex trading courses, reading a few trading books, experimenting with a number of trading techniques, demo trading and live trading until a personal money making trading style is found. This is a long and challenging process and it can take years to get there. It is estimated that only 3 ' 5% of serious traders succeed in making money. However once you are there you have developed a money making skill for life. This approach to money making forex trading takes considerable time and effort.

Option 2:- With the growth of part time traders (who mainly have day jobs) an alternative to the above forex trading money making approach has become very popular. Money is made purchasing a proven packaged forex trading system. The system is either delivered as a live course, as a book or Ebook or even purpose built software. The idea is to then merely follow the rules of the system by the letter. Although not entirely for novice traders this approach has the benefit using such a system is that it may have been thoroughly tested and proven and could cut years off the option 1 alternative. Some of the programmed money making forex trading strategies (for example expert advisors) can even be linked to your dealing station automating the whole forex trading money making process completely.

Option 3:- Find someone who is already making money trading the forex market and the copy their deals. These services will normally have a good and consistent money making track record. The deals can be obtained by going into an electronic trading room in a live trading environment, or alternatively they can be received via SMS, emails or access to a password protected website. You would then "blindly" copy all the signals or alerts into your broker dealing station and hopefully make lots of money from that.

Option 4:- Delegate the forex trading money making process completely by giving your money to a Forex trading money manager who will trade it for you.

All the money making options above carry considerable risk if not performed in a careful and in a thorough way. Most traders find themselves caught in the Option 1 process and do not even consider the other forex trading money making alternatives. If you are one of them, seriously consider the other options. Besides the fact that they could be less stressful and more profitable they could be less damaging to you in many ways.

If you are new to Forex Trading be aware and investigate all the Forex money making opportunities, because there are many if you are prepared to do your homework finding them.

There will be follow-on articles going into the above options in greater detail. These will be featured in this directory. Make sure you do not miss them.
