Forex Trading Business Plan, Increase Your Odds of Success

Anyone who wants to participate in a forex trading business should have a business plan. In this article we will show traders how to approach setting up a business plan for trading the forex market. Just like any other business startup, you have to have a business plan in writing, and follow it.

Advantages Of A Forex Trading Business

Traders can work their home trading business from home, work, or anywhere in the world with a good internet connection and work space. Forex traders can work while they travel or manage another business, as long as they are near the computer. You can trade part time on the side while full time employed. Traders can take a day off whenever they want if they are sick or need a break. If a trader is mobile, they can set up notifications on their phone or mobile device to notify them as to when the market is moving. Most forex website and brokers have mobile options and impressive apps..

Forex Trading Business Plan, Startup Costs

Here are some fixed costs associated with starting up a forex trading business. All traders will need a desktop computer or laptop, good quality phone or wireless device if you are mobile, internet connection, and funds for funding a live trading account. Most charting systems like Metatrader are free with your brokerage account.

There are some optional costs associated with a forex trading business. Fees for forex education courses are optional. To reduce or eliminate the cost associated with education, you can go to the Forexearlywarning website and all of our online forex courses are free, and these education courses are the best in the retail trading industry. This will save a forex trader a lot of money as education courses can range up to $50,000. Also, some charting systems have a monthly cost but the Metatrader platform is free and works just fine. Reduce costs of your forex trading business with these tips.

Another optional expense might be the cost for trading signal or alert services. These can range between $40 and $200 per month. Once again top quality trading plans and live signals are available from Forexearlywarning.  Check out Forexearlywarning for only $19.95 per month. Forexearlywarning provides trend based trading plans, a complete and detailed trading system, and excellent tools for entering your trades. Doing this will keep your monthly operating cost very low. Keeping expenses low is good for all business startups, until you are trading profitably.

The  final expense of a forex trading business is risk capital or working capital to fund a live trading account. This is not money paid out, but funds that a trader deposits into an account that you, as a trader, completely control  There are a lot of misconceptions about funding a live trading account. Trading a leveraged market like the spot forex reduces the amount of working capital needed. With leverage of 50:1 and higher,  traders can enter the forex market with live accounts funded in the $2000-$5000 range and have plenty of equity to reap good profits.

You should not fund a live trading account at all until after you demo trade. There are no costs associated with a demo trading account, so no risk to your capital. You should never fund a live trading account until your demo trades are successful.  You may not need to fund an account at all if your demo trades don’t work out. Don’t take a chance trading live funds until your demo trades are successful. There are even some entities that will fund your trading account for you, if you successfully demo trade.

To protect your live account and working capital, make sure your broker is financially viable and maintains client account protections. After you successfully demo trade and get a live account funded, you can move forward with live account trading. Having a great trading system and implementing good money management procedures, trade after trade will make your live trading account and working capital grow.

Forex Major Pairs USD Strength

Today in currency trading the forex major pairs all moved based on USD (US Dollar) strength. This created excellent short term buy and sell opportunities on some of these pairs. In the main forex trading session the USD was strong across the board, and pairs like the USD/CHF moved up and the EUR/USD moved down based on the USD strength.  From a support and resistance analysis, these two pairs are range bound, so we would consider scaling out lots and taking some profit, as we consider these to be short term or intraday trades. The live currency strength indicator you see below is The Forex Heatmap®. It give live buy and sell signals on the forex major pairs, plus pairs from eight other currency groups.

Forex Major Pairs USD Strength 8-29-2013

Forex Major Pairs USD Strength

The forex major pairs are currency pairs that have the USD on the left or right, the base or cross currency. You can see in the heatmap image above that we trade seven major pairs total. The USD pairs are most popular forex pairs. They are also the most liquid and heavily traded, they have the highest trading volumes and liquidity. The heatmap is a valuable tool in that the signals you see are live and any forex trader can learn how to use it for successful trade entries, day after day.

USD strength can be easily detected with this great live indicator. In the example above the pairs with the USD on the left are all green, and the pairs with the USD on the right are all red, indicating that the USD is strong. The heatmap works the same way for other currencies, for example if the EUR (Euro) is strong all of the indicators will be green because the EUR is the base currency on all pairs.
