Whether it is investment in domestic market or foreign market, whether it is investment in general goods or investment in financial goods, the basic investment strategy for beginners is consistent, especially in the foreign exchange market. Although everyone’s investment strategies are different, some of them are basic.
- Investment with spare funds
If investors invest with the necessary expenses of family life, in case of losses, it will directly affect the livelihood of the family, and the chances of failure in the investment market will increase. Because when making money with a sum of money that should not be used for investment, we are already at a disadvantage psychologically, so it is difficult to maintain an objective and calm attitude in decision-making. Do as much as you can afford.
- Don’t trade too much
To be a successful investor, one of the principles is to keep 80% of the capital at any time to cope with the fluctuation of price. The cost of each transaction is only 10% to 20% of the principal. If you don’t have enough money, you should reduce your sales contracts. Otherwise, you may be forced to “blow up your position” to free up money due to lack of money. Even if it turns out that your vision is accurate, it won’t help.
Don’t run out of ammunition at one time. Bullets can be loaded at any time.
- Face the market squarely and abandon fantasy
Don’t be sentimental, look forward to the future and remember the past too much. A U.S. futures trader said: a person full of hope is a beautiful and happy person, but he is not suitable to be an investor. A successful investor can separate his feelings and transactions.
The market is always right, the wrong is always their own.
- Don’t change your mind rashly
It’s very dangerous to make a decision based on the current market price and the change of the market price.
An iron army must have iron discipline.
- Make appropriate suspension
Trading day after day will slow your judgment. A successful investor said: whenever I feel that my mental state and judgment efficiency are as low as 90%, I can’t make money. When my state is lower than 90%, I start to lose money. Therefore, I suggest that I put everything down and have a rest for a few days. A short rest can help you to understand the market and yourself again, and help you to see the direction of future investment.
When you are too close to the forest, you can’t even see the trees in front of you.
- Don’t be blind
Successful investors don’t follow others blindly. When everyone thinks they should buy, they will sell. When everyone is in the same investment position, especially the small investors follow up one after another, the successful investors will feel dangerous and change their course. This is the same as the reverse theory, when most people say they want to buy, you should wait to sell.
Truth is sometimes managed by a few hands.
- Refuse others’ opinions
When you grasp the direction of the market and have a basic decision, don’t change your decision easily because of the influence of others. Sometimes other people’s opinions seem reasonable, which makes you change your mind. However, you find that your decision is the right one afterwards. In short, other people’s opinions are only for reference, and one’s own opinions are the decision of business.
Advice belongs to others, and money belongs to oneself.
- Uncertain market
It is not necessary to enter the market every day. New entrants are often keen to enter the market. However, successful investors will wait for the opportunity and leave the market first when they feel confused after entering the market.
If the trading process is your greatest happiness, please trade every day…..
- Make a quick decision
When investing in the foreign exchange market, there are many psychological factors leading to failure. A quite common situation is that when investors are faced with losses and know that they can no longer be lucky, they are often hesitant and unable to make an immediate decision. As a result, they fall deeper and deeper and their losses increase.
I’m afraid of mistakes, but I’m afraid of procrastination.
- Forget the past price
“Past price” is also a very difficult psychological barrier to overcome. Many investors are affected by the past price, resulting in wrong investment judgment. Generally speaking, after seeing the high price, when the market falls back, they will feel quite unaccustomed to the new low price. At that time, even though various analysis shows that the market will fall again in the future and the market investment climate is very bad, before these new low price levels, the investors will not only not sell their own goods, but also feel “low” and have the impulse to buy. As a result, they will be imprisoned after buying It’s locked in. Therefore, investors should “forget the past price.”.
Remembering “history” means betraying the market.
- Patience is also an investment
There is a saying in the investment market that “patience is an investment“. I believe few investors can do this. Foreign exchange investment and trading people must cultivate good endurance, which is often a key to success or failure. Many investors do not have poor analytical ability or lack of investment experience, but lack of endurance and buy or sell too early, resulting in unnecessary losses. For example, in a year, the US dollar has been rising, so it is an investment to hold us dollars all the time?
The early bird doesn’t necessarily have worms to eat.
- Stop loss and profit
This is an extremely important investment skill. Due to the high risk in the investment market, in order to avoid the loss in case of investment mistakes, we should stop loss and stop profit every time we enter the market. That is to say, when the exchange rate falls to a predetermined price and may fall, the transaction should be settled immediately. Therefore, this kind of calculation is an order to limit the loss, so that we can limit the further expansion of the loss. Only in this way can we maximize our interests and minimize our losses. There is no omnipotent theory, no omnipotent technical analysis method, no omnipotent analyst in the world. When any brilliant theory, precise method, and superb analyst is wrong, only setting a stop loss can save you from heavy losses. Remember!
Please fasten your seat belt when working at height.
- Pay attention to potential but not price
When we trade, the reason why we buy a currency is because we expect it to appreciate. We buy it in advance and then sell it to earn a difference. This truth is very obvious. However, for those who are new to the market, they often forget this truth. Instead of focusing on the future trend of price, they focus on the transaction cost. They always hope that they can make a deal at a lower price than others. It seems that they are mentally retarded to buy a little bit higher. They often look for the lowest price for a period of time, miss the trading opportunity, and wait to see When the market saw the appreciation of the currency not bought, it was too late to regret. The correct way is to recognize the general trend and attack quickly. Don’t be confused by the immediate interests. Only it can rise. It’s right to buy it any time today and look at it tomorrow. Today’s highest price may be tomorrow’s lowest price.

- The key is self-discipline
A lot of trading strategies and techniques are familiar to people, even backward, what to follow the trend, to set a stop loss, make a quick decision and so on. Why are so many people losing money? Because many people are: can say, can’t do! Just imagine, the market is either up or down, the opportunity is half to half, even if there are five losses and five gains in ten transactions. If you can make up your mind, you will lose a little every time. I believe it is not difficult to make a comprehensive calculation.
Why do so many people lack self-discipline?
a. It is fluke psychology, indecision and other psychology that makes trouble.
For example, after a bull run, the market turns downward, and I always think, “it doesn’t matter, it will stop falling and pick up soon.” I constantly comfort myself, replace reality with “Hope”, and forget the principle of “no delay”.
b. It’s too subjective to make a mistake.
When you go to buy, you think “it will rise” and when you go to sell, you think “it will fall”. Did not think of “in case of wrong how to do”, pure Du Bo psychology, do not lose is not normal!
c. It’s inertia.
Knowing that stop loss and stop profit must be carried out at the first time, he is lazy to deal with it immediately. With the mentality of “it’s not too late to talk about it at that time”, he is often caught off guard by sudden changes in the market.
