The institutional way of forex trading

Bankers and big financial institutions are always making huge amounts of money from trading Currencies, Commodities, and Indices. Our online trading academy embraces this style of forex trading and educates our members to adopt the psychology of Institutional forex traders and abandon the retail forex trader mentality.

Retail forex traders tend to use multiple technical indicators such as Moving Averages, Stochastics, RSI, Bollinger bands, MACD, etc without fully understanding the application of these technical indicators on the financial markets. Have you ever thought why some of the largest hedge funds spend millions of pounds on developing their algorithms? It’s simply because you have to use certain permutations and combinations to create that perfect trading strategy.

The forex markets move based on Institutional Order Flow and the prediction of market movements can only come with the experience of trading at an Institutional level. The average forex trader on the open market will try and find the holy grail of trading by following certain forex signal services. Without proper understanding of these forex signals, and the reason behind the trade, you could be left with significant losses. This is why it is paramount to learn, follow, and adapt the institutional methodologies used by financial leaders around the globe.

Learn to trade the market with professionals possessing invaluable experience gathered over many years. Trade with them live instead of trying to read multiple books in an attempt to learn how to trade forex.

Our focus and what you will gain

Our aim is to help you achieve your goals, whether you want to become a full-time trader, earn a secondary income, boost your retirement fund, or achieve full financial freedom. We want to show you how you can take advantage of a 7 Trillion-Dollar Market by learning the art of currency trading from some of our certified professionals that have been trading forex for more than 17 years.

We will teach you everything from the very basics of how the markets function to how, why, and when institutions trade currencies and make money from the foreign exchange markets every single day. We explain to you how to use our forex trading strategies to consistently and profitably trade the forex markets via our Live Trading floor.

Please check our Forex Blogs and Trading Videos so you can see us live in action.

Personal support

If you are new to foreign exchange (FX or Forex) trading, we have trading courses that are customised according to your personal needs. We offer a dedicated support team that will be ready to assist and guide you on your financial trading journey on a personal basis. We aim to provide you support via Skype, telephone, online mentoring and Platinum Trading Television, which is just like watching CNBC or Bloomberg but with a TV channel dedicated to forex trading.

For forex traders that have been trading in the financial markets for some time, but lack the consistency they desire, our dedicated Forex Mentors will give you straightforward forex trading strategies that you can implement by simply placing pending orders in the market. These trading strategies are also known as “Set & Forget” strategies. The benefit of these strategies is that they will allow you to spend more time on profitability, and less time on watching forex news, searching for the holy grail in financial market trading. We want you to trade forex successfully and with confidence, which is why we provide you with dedicated one-to-one mentoring from experts in the field of forex.

Platinum has a 24-hour forex trading support desk so that you can reach us from anywhere in the world at any time of the day. Please check our Forex strategies page on the website so you can see our in-depth trading analysis that we provide, along with our trading results.

TOP 10 RISK AND MONEY MANAGEMENT TIPS FOR TRADING IN THE FOREX MARKET

tips for trading

Good Morning,

As any experienced trader will tell you, to become successful you need to have extreme patience and be able to adapt quickly to ever-changing market conditions. Having a trading plan will solve half of this, but the other vital key is the management of trading positions.

One of the biggest tips for trading I can give is to stay on top of your trade management and forex strategies. The biggest drawback I see in clients is their lack of experience when it comes to money management, this then leads to trade frustrations and chasing the market. Whether you are just about to learn how to trade or are already an experienced trader, money management cannot be ignored.

Today we are going to discuss the top forex trading tips that you can implement to become successful in the market.

10 BEST FOREX TRADING TIPS

  1. Calculating Your Risk Before Entering the Trade

This is of vital importance to ensure you aren’t going to blow your account. Ensure your overall risk on each trade is no higher than 1 – 2% of your total trading capital. This way even if you find yourself down on a trade, the risk is limited and managed correctly.

  1. Never Chase the Markets

This is what we call being too aggressive with your trades, its often the largest mistake traders make when starting out in trading forex. If you take too many trades or are trading with too much risk this will hinder your trading performance. Adjust your position size if you are planning on taking more trades to ensure risk is the same.

  1. Have Realistic Expectations

Another big failure in traders is expecting themselves to make huge profits straight away, this of course is not realistic and will lead you to be too aggressive in your trading. Set out realistic goals to achieve month by month, this way you wont think about daily gains or losses too much.

  1. Don’t Hold Trades Too Long in a Loss

Always cut your losses to minimise risk, it’s essential to exit quickly if you feel a trade is running away from you or your reasoning wasn’t correct before you made the trade. You can not control the market, if the trade is bad, cut the loss.

  1. Expect the Worst

Remember something very vital, your past performance doesn’t represent future results. What you did yesterday or last month doesn’t mean you will do it again tomorrow or next month. Be prepared for making losses here and there. Also be prepared for shock moves in the market where currency pairs can drop or rise very quickly on fundamentals. Having your risk mapped out before you place the trade will help prepare you.

  1. Have Your Targets Planned Before You Enter

Always ensure you have a target in mind before entering into the setup, otherwise you will be lost while in the trade with no direction of when to exit. Having targets solidifies discipline in trading.

  1. Always Use Stop Losses

Ensure you are always using stop losses in every position you take, this is both sensible and logical to do for any trader. It will shield you from making huge losses or being surprised by a shock move in the market. Stop losses can vary on trades depending on the strategy, but for Platinum Trading Academy, we use stops anywhere from 20 pips to 40 pips on a trade.

Stop losses are vital to survive in forex trading, remember longevity in trading is more important then anything else. You can’t expect to make long term profits if you cant survive, stop losses also mean you don’t need to monitor the market all the time. They will give you the confidence to step away from the screen knowing if anything goes wrong you have something to cut your loss.

  1. Never Trade With Emotions

This is easier said than done of course. But trading after you have just suffered a bad loss is not a good idea. You will be trying to chase that money back by risking too much or over trading. This will lead to further losses and greater anger in the trade. A good tip for this is to take a break from the screen for a while and return with a fresh point of view.

Stay on top of your position sizes and don’t alter them just because you made a loss the trade beforehand.

  1. Understand Leverage

Leverage is something many clients fail to understand when it comes to forex trading. Leverage essentially enables you to trade your capital at bigger position sizes to produce greater profits. I.E if you had a $1,000 trading account with a 1:200 leverage you can place a trade up to $200,000. Remember the notional value of 1 lot is $100,000. So you would effectively be able to trade a position size of $20 per pip.

But higher leverage doesn’t mean you will gain more profits, it also means you can lose more too. Be cautions and ensure you are trading within your limits to best survive in the market.

  1. Longevity is Key

Always set out a longer term 3-5 year plan of where you want to be, thinking too short term will ruin you and end up blowing your account out. Thinking long term will get all the negative thoughts out of your mind and enable you to focus day to day. Do not stray from your trading plan, stay true to it throughout the process.

Conclusion

Follow the forex trading tips provided above to exercise effective money management, if you follow these you will be on your way to becoming successful. We would recommend practising all these tips on a trading demo account first and foremost.

Perfect Fundamentals + Perfect Technical Analysis + Perfect Logic + Perfect Risk Management = Perfect Trade
