Forex Study - Not That Too?
Maybe you've gone back to "school" and had some Forex training and now you've had a little success trading in the Forex market. Guess what? You need more Forex study. That's right. More "classroom" time. In fact, you're NEVER done with your Forex study, at least not if you want to continue to be successful.
Why is that, you say? It's because the markets are complex and constantly changing. The strategies you have learned may only apply to current market conditions. But market conditions change on a daily basis. You can't dictate to the market. You have to flow with it. And flowing with the market requires constant study.
As you study, you will learn that certain technical strategies apply well to a trending market (one that is continually going up or down) and other technical strategies apply well to a ranging market (one that is bouncing between two levels and can't seem to move any higher or lower.) Some strategies are for breakouts (when a ranging market finally breaks beyond the bounds of the range) and others are for reversals (when a market has been trending and is reversing its direction.)
In addition to technical strategies, there are fundamental elements to Forex trading as well. There are scheduled news releases periodically (daily) that have an effect on the market. There are also unexpected news items that will cause sudden reversals and breakouts. You will also find there are continually changing economic conditions throughout the world that have an effect on the currency market. A good trader will weigh all these elements before deciding to take a trade or to stand aside and not trade.
Continual Forex study is an important element to your success as a trader. Don't neglect it.
