Do You Need Experience To Trade Foreign Exchange Sydney?

You do not need any financial experience to successfully trade foreign exchange Sydney. However, you do need some spare time, a fair amount of determination and the will to succeed. Everything else you can pick up from the internet, most of it free of charge. There are bank websites to help you understand what’s called “fundamental analysis” (i. e., economics) and there are stock-oriented websites to assist you in developing the technical analysis skills that you’ll need in order to read a chart correctly. There are also a bunch of forex-related news websites that have excellent commentary sections and “webinars” (such as “”, out of Barcelona). If you’re going to trade the EUR/JPY, AUD/JPY or USD/JPY, don’t forget to learn about “Ichimoku Clouds”. Many traders in Asia use this system; in order to beat them at their own game, you need to know where they’re coming from.
Use a “demo account” before you start any live trading. “Demos” are free and don’t use your money. They’re the perfect teaching tool.

Finding The Right Research Material To Begin Trading Foreign Exchange Sydney

Most forex research material that you need to look at is already on the internet, for free. All you need is the time and determination to access it. Some of the stuff is easy to find, like central bank websites and bank monetary policies. The commercial banks, however, are not so open with their intellectual property. For example, Deutsche Bank processes over 10% of all daily ($5.3 trillion) forex transactions, but if you look at its website(s), you would be hard-pressed to discover evidence of their forex prowess (but, it’s there – at “”). Westpac is a bit more friendly; try the “FX” section of their “Institutional Bank”, at “”. The quality of forex research at ANZ isn’t bad, either; try “”.

Do Inexperienced Traders Need Support To Trade Foreign Exchange Sydney?

Psychologically, newbies might need some support, but it’s best if such support comes from family members and friends – as opposed to anyone connected with the forex industry. The reason is that if you have researched what you want to do and how you want to do it thoroughly and have already practised on a demo account, there’s really no need for any kind of forex industry-related support, with the possible exception forex news websites that have experts commentaries (e. g., Jim Trott, former head forex dealer of the Bank of England, during London trading hours at “”). Emotion doesn’t have much of a role in successful trading. Let your strategies and charts help you; they have a neutral bias.

Developing Confidence And Skill With Foreign Exchange Sydney

For developing confidence, nothing beats working with a demo. While each demo is a bit different than the others, all of them offer a real-time trading experience with “virtual money”, instead of your own. This makes them perfect learning tools and you really should not leave your demo until you can punch out at least 6 out of 10 trades successfully. As long as you can do this – and, keep your losses low – you will be a successful forex trader. If you don’t believe that such a statement could be the truth, then stay with your demo until it becomes really obvious that you’re just losing your valuable time (to make real money) by working only with virtual money.
