A forex trading system that works and is effective at making pips on a consistent basis is actually quite elusive. Forex traders struggle, sometime for years, and never see or come into contact with a complete trading system. These traders don’t know what a complete trading system even looks like. We only know of one complete trading system. In this article we will explain what the components are of a complete forex trading system. Plus, we will show you one trading system that is complete and ready to use.
Components of a Forex Trading System
A complete forex trading system should have all of these components: The system should work on any pair. If you trade only one pair like the EUR/USD it should work the same way for this pair, or any other pair. The system should be able to accurately analyze any pair, any individual currency or the whole forex market. The system should be effective in trending or ranging markets. Specific and accurate entry point criteria and written rules for trade entries should be provided. Options for managing live trades, money management, and stops should be provided for the life cycle of any trade. How many trading systems have you seen that have all of this included ? We only know of one.
Many forex traders have a few standard technical indicators on their screen and the call it a trading system. These are not trading systems at all.
Searching For A Forex Trading System
If you are searching the web for a good forex trading system, you will be very disappointed. If you do find a system that you like, make sure it has all of the components listed above, otherwise the system is incomplete. One possibility is to design your own trading system. With the proper knowledge you can do this, it will be a lengthy process but it can work. Another option is to take an existing system and use it right off of the shelf.
If a trader does find a forex trading system they like, they should make sure that all of the details and documentation of the trading system are provided, so they can be reviewed by the end user. This would include any manual trading system or any automated system. Also the cost of the system should be known.
