To answer your second question, my strategies have changed over the years. In the Forex market, I prefer PA strategies the most. I prefer to take daily candles swing trading , because of the time freedom and the strength of the signals. However, I will drop down to the 1H or 4H charts from time to time, for certain strategies. If I add an indicator, it is to spot divergence. If you think harmonics, or any other technicals, will give you an edge, test it to death.
If it works for you, use it. I prefer to keep PA as simple as possible strong signals, horizontal levels, trendlines, etc. I set my target to 2. The risk is The system works fine in downturn and flat market. But in bull market, some time I reach my target too easy, and I cannot hold the temptation to set my sell order price higher. What is your suggestion on this?
Should I restrict with my trading strategy or give it a room when market is good? If you really want to try to milk the market for more during the strong trending periods, you might try to exit only half of your position at your normal target or use two separate orders. Obviously, you should backtest or demo trade any new strategies — including exit strategies.
Try different combinations of risk to reward ratios, break even stops, etc. Testing is key. First of all. I like your responses to previous comments really much, anyway. I have a question. Which is e. I dont understand this. Thanks for the kind remarks. Let me say it another way: You would predetermine a logical place to put your stop loss, and buy the correct amount of shares for stocks or contracts for options, e-minis, etc. I try for profits of Is this considered good? Is that good or average?
Thank You. Hey William. Good is a relative term. Good for whom? In another year or less, that 19K could be 40K, then 80K, and so on. Once you get it, no matter what the gain, it becomes exponential. The next 10K should be easier to come by then the first 10K. Hi Chris I really like the way you think, from your risk management to your earning expectations. However, I have not started trading yet, but I have been studying a system for the last three months and I am ready to look for a broker.
I live in the U. and I understand that I need a U. broker that offers a demo. Also, the system that I am studying uses the MT4 platform. My dilemma is that I can not get anyone to recommend a broker.
I have read many stories about brokers that become sharks. I have complete trust in what I am studying and I feel that I can trust you. Therefore, would you recommend a broker? If you cannot publish a name in your newsletter, perhaps you could email me. Thanks for the kind words! I have no problem recommending a broker. I have used a bunch of them.
I can only tell you who I use — take it or leave it. Until recently, I was using FXCM. Due to the recent news, and FXCM being kicked out of the CFTC, I will probably move to OANDA. I have two demo accounts n have read info on it. N watched some tutorial videos. U talked about back testing which makes sense to do Put it this way I just need to learn what about stragies n how to understand it all.
Could u direct me to a good place to learn what I need to learn. Hey, Julie, sorry for the late response. I have a free price action course on this site that you might find useful. I only recommend one of them Day Trading Forex Live on my this site because it was very helpful to me. hi chris… hope you r doing great. i would like to ask about trusty broker for middle east or south asians countries. i have been trading for one year now but didnt find reliable broker.
and the second question is.. what does it mean that broker is regulated? i mean if someone deposit his hard earned money to the broker…. and if there is something happens like alpari did few years ago… so how can one be atleast get their money back from regulated broker? waiting for your swift reply.. thanks jawad. I have limited experience with brokers outside of the U. As for your second question, not all countries are regulated the same way. Different countries require different things from brokers in order to be regulated.
Then find out whether or not the potential broker you are researching is regulated by those agencies. It all depends on the circumstances and the regulations in your country. Many professional traders keep only half or a third of their trading capital with their broker. They leave the rest in a savings account, but trade as though all of it is with their broker.
This is the method I prefer. Other traders split their capital between brokers, but do the same thing that I mentioned above. The advantage of this second method is that you can split up multiple open trades between brokers as well. Good luck. thanks chris for your quick response…..
i got your point. thanks alot….. you gave me useful idea of splitting capital… but one more question…plz reply this … is ecn broker really good for retail traders? if yes then how to identify a true ecn broker? ECN is the way to go. You just need to do your due diligence in researching your broker. Start by reading your broker agreement. Also, true ECN brokers have no dealing desk.
They will allow scalping. They will have no restriction on where you can place your stop loss or take profit.
They will not have a fixed spread. There are more ways to determine this, but these tips are the most obvious. Hey Chris i really enjoyed this article is very helpfull. I like the theory of this plan, but do you think it can be done? Also I have trouble finding the correct graphic to look at I think 5m would be fine and how long should I be on the market, per trade. Thank you! As far as time frames go, the more meaningful setups always occur on the higher ones.
Sometimes losing traders can become profitable by switching to the Daily time frame or higher. Thank you for your response Chris! Also I see internet i full of crap, since everyone is trying to sell you THE system to get rich.
I completely understand what you mean. I went through the same thing and lost a lot of money before I found something that worked. You need to know that it works for sure. Of course, that means you have to start with a good system, but testing is just as important. Not many traders can do that, or at least not for long. I only have an account there to run the Trade Tests for this site. I used to have my live account tracked there too, but when I switched brokers, I never bothered to get it set up again.
Myfxbook is only used because nobody would actually accept my personal trading journal as proof that a system works. Hi Chris, Loved the article. What do you think is the easiest system to pick up? Do you recommend sticking to a few reliable pairs or a lot of pairs to find set-ups? Either way, which pairs? Also, do you think a reward to risk of is easier to achieve in shorter time frames or swing trades? Day Trading Forex Live is profitable and easy to learn.
The community, ongoing daily support, and live trading room really help new members get up to speed fast and trade the system correctly. I also like to trade price action. Price action trading is great and it can be used in combination with other trading systems. However, price action techniques take lots of screen time to become proficient at.
I would say that a reward to risk ratio is easier to achieve on the Daily chart because the spread is typically a smaller portion of your risk the higher you go up in time frames. Why would I not use the free MT4 and make some money instead of being on a subscribed charting software?
This led me to Forex Gemini Code FGC which to me was a disaster. I realized Alaziac was just a marketing firm for a lot of sweet talk marketers of new systems for newbies and the annoying thing is that they charge high for these non-profitable systems sold on market high pitch. I later came across Top Dog Trading as well but the scare of FGC had not allowed me to make the move, though I kept taps of TDT.
I realized I was hooked to MTI based on their Fibonacci tool. I searched for a tool that would give me the Extensions without me having to place it opposite the direction as is defaulted on MT4. I became successful in this by imputing negative numbers and levels into the MT4 Fibo tool after working them out. I tested this over and over by spreading the default opposite and the levels coincided.
When I came across your Fibo tool adjustment article and the one you gave from another source, plus the fact you have reviewed TDT positively as well as stated how horrible FGC performed, I realized this was a fellow trader one should give a high consideration of trust to.
However I was even more impressed by your recommending DTFL and IP as better than TDT. Can you also help review a system called [removed]?
I wait to hear from you. Wow, Zat! Your story really paints a picture. I looked into MTI myself, BTW, but never pulled the trigger. I know the feeling of getting burned by slick marketing. FGC was one of the worst, but far from the only time it happened to me. For me, DTFL was a breath of fresh air. I probably will not review the system that you mentioned. When I get the time I have several other reviews already lined up.
Maybe that will change in the future. Thanks for reading! I hope you check back in from time to time. Loved the article and the comments even more! Thanks for putting it together!
It sounds like you have the right idea about reward to risk and risk management. Lots of small trades within a fairly specific range bound currency pair. Often trading 20 times per day.
I have spent 4 years watching the market. Lost a huge amount of money from being poorly disciplined. I always watch the market, never set and forget.
I use RSI and volumes to judge when to enter and exit. Be aware of Yuan fixing every day between gmt! Sounds too good to be true.
I hope you can keep that kind of performance up. Do you mind sharing more details? What specific pair are you trading? What are your entry, exit, and take profit rules? I trade only the AUDUSD.
I watch the bond rate differential closely compared with the DXY. I also read the daily economic reports from our banks. They are a wealth of information. Specific times of the day also are more volatile. Trying to understand how different countries own bond rates are influenced by carry trades is also always in the back of my mind. No more big trades on macro economic changes. The market is reactionary not proactive in its pricing.
My new trading regime will see me through. Small bites is the key. My trades are all recorded by my broker for all to see when the time comes. I will let you know. I keep my eye out for situations that could create market conditions that I want to avoid. Other than that, I trade divergence, stop runs, patterns, trends, etc.
Hi Chris, How was your Christmas? Cheers Ross. Truly unbelievable results, Ross! You should be a millionaire in no time. Hi Chris, I had a look at Myfxbook and signed up. Rather stay below the radar at this stage.
I enjoy your website and this article as I am stuck in the setting trading goal stage. Compare that with real estate where someone might have to risk a great deal more to achieve the 2. You can also read the information on gold investments. You could potentially make 2. The conclusion is simple: Forex has such incredible potential, that it can easily surpass Real Estate even with minimal risk measures in place.
Let's take a look and see how hard it would be to make this with minimal to moderate risk management. Now that, my friend, is more than doable in this market. Forex is an excellent investment IF you take it slow and focus on the long term. Also, read a million USD Forex strategy. I would like to compare Forex vs average and above average careers. Now, looking at the average income per capita person in the U. After all, you're doing this for the money, so you want to make as much as possible.
Assuming that you increase your lot sizes with your account each month, instead of weekly or daily for risk management purposes. Now let's say you minimize your expenses and work a job, so you were able to build your trading account.
What if you wanted to wait until five years and then start pulling out all of your profits? Now you can feel free to pull out all of the profits each month. Just imagine that. So, we see that it is much better to build up your account until you feel you NEED to take the money out.
I mean, can you imagine making that kind of an income five years from now every month? I am not even talking about something that is unachievable. It's important to keep yourself in check, perfecting your craft each and every day by educating yourself.
Many traders get caught up in quantity instead of the quality of trades. We have a forex trading income calculator on this site to help you do your calculations. I would challenge you to find another career in the world that will have you earning that kind of money in 5 years.
Trading isn't easy but can be done if you follow a forex trading plan. I say this simply to reinforce how profitable the Forex market can be if you work hard and have long-term goals in mind.
Forex income tax is based on location, and the rules are different depending on where your residency is. Forex income in Malaysia is taxable, but the capital gains are not taxable. It might make sense for you to determine the difference between Forex income and Forex capital gains.
Revenue from Forex trading in Canada is considered Capital Gains or Losses which means that if you make money you will have to count it as a capital gain. There is a tax on all capital gains in Canada. Trading Revenue generated from Forex trading in the UK is tax-free if it is done on a spread betting account.
Do your research to find the right kind of account that will work for this. The rules for Forex trading tax in Australia are not specific just for the Forex market. They have adopted the exact same tax rules for the stock market. The Forex trading tax in South Africa is a tiered tax system. That means that the more you make, the higher your tax will be. If you are trading on the side and still working a regular job, all revenue earned from trading is tax-free.
However, if you are a full-time trader, then your trading revenue will be taxed. The amount you can make is unlimited! But that comes with a hard catch. Yes, it is unlimited, but you must be aware that most Forex traders lose money.
So, the true answer is probably none. There is no data for this because it is a global occupation, and we have to piece together data from all the brokers in the world, and they do not publicly release this data. We do know that it is a sliding scale, and the ones who are very successful make millions, and the rest either lose money or make very little. The answer depends on where you live. Contact your local tax agency and find out from them. There are many to choose from. I would take a look at our compilation of some of the best trading strategies.
These can help you increase your trading revenue. In conclusion, if we can maintain a realistic view of Forex, then we have a greater chance of setting reasonable goals. This helps us maintain a profitable trading strategy that brings us a steady Forex income over time. If you don't believe me, take a look at the Forex compounding calculator which will tell you all you need to know about how much Forex income you can make.
Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. Please leave a comment below, if you have any questions about Realistic Forex Income! There were quite literally countless opportunities to sell the market on all time frames from the 4H to the weekly. Therefore, many traders capitalized on this direction and market volatility to generate huge returns in their trading accounts.
On the other side of this, there are long periods of time when the market will consolidate and traders will be sitting on their hands. Our job as traders is to make use of any market conditions, whether ranging or directional.
This is where having multiple trading strategies can help! Not adapting to the ongoing market conditions is one of the many reasons forex traders fail within the markets. Different trading strategies will, of course, yield different results within the markets. As long as you are trading a profitable trading strategy, this is all that matters! Looking at things like scaling in, and pyramid entries would be a great way to potentially increase your profits overnight!
As a general rule, intraday trading strategies yield better returns but require a huge amount of time and dedication from traders. As a trader, you need to set your risk tolerance. How much money are you willing to stake on a position?

So, how much money can you actually make? The amount of money you can make is very much dictated by your trading ability and performance. Now, I would say that Hypothetical A is much more realistic for a trader to achieve. However, prop firm traders typically risk a much lower percentage per trade, due to strict drawdown rules.
There are three main options for traders looking to maximize their earnings from prop firm trading firms. Capital scaling is very simple. When you reach certain milestones, in terms of profits, the prop firm will increase your trading capital. We do this as we begin to trust the trader with more trading capital and the more money they manage, the more money we will get in profit splits.
Compound interest is one of the wonders of the world when it comes to investing. In the same way, you can compound your personal trading capital, the majority of funded accounts will allow you to do this as well. This will obviously lead you to have more capital in your trading account, but it does come with a lot of risks.
Many prop firms have shut up, after starting up shop overnight, in the last few years. Another great option is to have multiple funded accounts on the go at the same time. The idea here is that you trade the same setups, across multiple trading accounts.
You can either use the same risk profile or slightly change your profile to be a higher risk or lower risk. However, you can use a trade copier to automatically replicate your trades across multiple accounts that you own, if the prop firm allows it. Are you looking to become a funded trader?
