A professional Forex trader is someone who uses price movement in the Foreign exchange currency market to make profit. The aim of any Forex trader is to win as many trades as possible and also to maximize those winning trades. A professional Forex chart technician uses price charts to analyze and trade the market. By trading with an EDGE in the market, professional traders can put the odds in their favor to successfully trade price movement from point A to point B.
Caution: Forex trading is not a
‘get-rich-quick’ scheme and it is more difficult to make money in Forex
than what most popular Forex system-selling websites would have you
believe. To trade profitably we must not only have winning trades, but
we must also cut our losing trades short so that our winners out-pace
our losers. You see, losing is an enviable part of trading the Forex
markets, and you must learn to lose properly by taking small losses
relative to your winners. This means you must A L W A Y S trade with a
stop loss on E V E R Y trade you take and make sure the dollar amount
you have at risk is an amount you are 100% comfortable with losing.
Professional Forex price-chart traders have a winning edge which is
developed via Technical Analysis (more on this in Part 4). There are
also Fundamental Analysis traders and traders who use a combination of
both analysis techniques; we will discuss all of these later.
A professional Forex trader
understands that reading a price chart is both art and skill, and as
such, they do not try to mechanize or automate the process of trading as
each moment in the market is unique, so it takes a flexible and dynamic
trading strategy to trade the markets with a high-probability edge.
