Forex Trading Secrets Exposed - 3 Lessons From Professional Forex Traders on Forex Trading

Almost 90% of the part time traders that I know of want to become full time forex traders in the near future. And they hope to be professional traders one day. That is the dream for most forex traders. What about you?

In order to survive in the forex trading world and make lots of money from the forex market consistently, being a normal forex trader is not good enough - you'll need to become a professional forex trader. So just what are the secrets that professional forex traders have that enable them to make lots of money trading forex? I once had a conversation with a friend of mine, who is a professional trader. He shared with me the 3 secrets that make professional traders like him very rich:

Secret #1 - Professional traders are not geniuses- they simply follow a simple forex trading system

You see it correctly, they are not any smarter than you nor do they possess of any god-like foresight in forex trading. I dare to say this because I know some professional forex traders who seem to know nothing in this world and clumsy in doing other stuffs but can do extremely well in forex trading. Why is that so?

It's simply because they have a successful forex trading system which gives them good forex trading signals. It helps them trade consistently. What they have to do is to repeat the consistency just by following the trading system. That's about all. And let me tell you a little more secret, professional traders use simple forex trading systems instead complicated, as what most people thought.

Secret #2 - Learn to work smart, not hard

Do you think that you should learn how to trade forex the hard way and gain all the knowledge before you can be successful? Do you think you can master the forex market if you combine all the strategies taught by every forex trading experts? If your answer is yes, you are wrong. In other businesses, you may get rewarded for all the efforts and time you have put into.

But in forex trading, it's the right forex trading tutorials and education that count and you are rewarded for being accurate and not so much for the effort you put in. You will be surprised to know that successful traders only follow a winning trading system blindly to build up their trading capital.

Secret #3 - They possess determination, discipline, money management and mindset for success

My professional forex trader friend once told me that he would leave everything aside just to concentrate on his forex trading. It's his determination to succeed that made him overcome small losses and steep learning curves that he experienced in the beginning. He told me the problem with most traders is that they are too eager to trade and make money fast from the forex market.

You need to have discipline to follow the rules of your forex trading system. Huge capital gains in forex are piled up over years and not days, there is no shortcut to riches. He manages his money so well that even 2 or 3 losses in a row will not affect his trading capital much. 1% or even 0.5% of his capital margin per trade is what he is only willing to risk.

Not everyone can be a professional trader in a short period of time as you need huge capital, but anyone can become successful in forex trading if you learn how to trade forex the professional way.
