They don’t listen to the market.

Our teaching methods involve giving insights to the world of forex and the skills necessary to trade on the market, as well as a connected community that provides insight and encouragement. Still, when a forex trader starts trading for real, they’re on their own – we hope they make the right decisions based on our teachings, and they often do!

One of the most important lessons we believe in is to always listen to the market, but forex traders that go it alone often neglect this golden rule. In any trading realm, learning the patterns of and reading the market is one way you can better ensure your success. Before making any trade decision, take a step back and consider the information in front of you. What is the current price action telling you? Is your trade as valuable as it could be?

They don’t enjoy what they’re doing.

One reason we love recommending potential members to forex trading as a future income option is because it opens them up to a world where they don’t have to “work for a living” like they’re used to. Successful forex traders can kick back and relax more than the regular office worker, and that’s a huge selling point of the craft!

When we hear that there are forex traders out there that don’t actually enjoy what they do, we get confused – if you aren’t successful, and you also don’t like what you’re doing, isn’t it just the same as sitting behind a desk at a dead end job all day?

There’s also a need for loving what you do when it comes to market analysis. The best forex traders are passionate and hungry for information, and that’s what leads them to success.

Their expectations are flights of fancy.

We like to be realistic with those we talk to about joining us on The Journey. We’ll never promise members a certain monetary amount they’ll wind up with in their bank account, but we do provide the knowledge and experience to shorten their journey to success and increase their profit chances exponentially.

The reason being is that the forex market is one where loss can sometimes be inevitable. There’s never a dream scenario where a new forex trader bets it all on a trade and comes out a billionaire. There is definitely a lot of self-discovery along the road to success in forex trading. If you go in thinking you’ll instantly be rich, it can be a precursor for disappointment.

They put all their eggs in one currency’s basket.

Most traders have a favored currency to work with, and that’s okay. Many successful forex traders don’t diversify their portfolio or go out of their comfort zone. However, it’s important to understand that a currency won’t be a winner every time. If you’re dead set on only working with one or two currencies, be flexible and appreciate that sometimes they will present wonderful setups while other times, they are best left alone.

Some traders often get too emotionally invested in their trades. They think more about being right instead of making money off of a trade, leading to failure. In order to be successful, you have to consider the information and the market – not your personal investment in one currency.

Release the need to be right and embrace perfecting the process of a profitable trading stratedy, the profits will look after themselves.

If you think forex trading could be a good alternative income option for you, drop us a line. We don’t bite, and we love talking to potential members about how forex trading can benefit their lives.
