Trading - Expectations VS Reality

OANDA:XAUUSD   Gold Spot / U.S. Dollar
Hey Traders,

In this post we will aim to clear some of common misconceptions of trading and how we can help you go further in your trading career by giving you all the tools you need to better understand the market and kill the game.


1. Trading is easy.
Trading is relatively easy IF you know the rules of the market and use certain analytical techniques. Once you have a full arsenal of technical tools, you can easily understand the market and figure out where it may go next.

2. Market moves in one direction.
That can be true to a certain extent where we have trending markets. However, within that trend there are various types of pullbacks. Once you understand the different market phases, you can make money whether it's a trending or ranging market. Opportunities are endless!

3. Buy when low. Sell when high.
If only things were that straight forward, right? Sometimes the lows aren't really the lows and the highs push higher and higher. This is when you need to understand the different patterns and structure of the market to help you figure out where the best possible place is to buy or sell.

Once we understand the market, we need a trading plan. How do we enter? Where do we enter? Where is the stop loss? This is where having rigid checklist really helps! You can tick things off the list and grade the trade setup from good to bad and then enter accordingly using various entry methods.

It may sound like a lot of but once broken down into little bits, you can learn this EASILY and know exactly how to analyse and enter trades!

Hi Wicktator - "EUR index to reject structure level ". Do youalways refer to the appropriate currenct index before placing a trade?
Also, do yo ever get involved with currency meters to add confluence to a trade?

Enjoyable read. Keep up the good work
