Know The Different Types Of Trading Styles

Each forex trader is unique

There are over 8 billion people in the world (including space aliens disguised as humans) and not one person is exactly the same as another. Even identical twins will have different fingerprints.

Everyone has their own look, personality, talents, and pizza topping preferences (we like pepperoni and potato chips). We all like different things and are unique in our own way.

Zoltran - A Unique Forex Trader

Trading is the same way. Our unique personalities will lead us to trade differently from one another. Some may be aggressive, “type A” personality traders while others may be more relax, “type B” personality traders. Some may like taking small wins all the time, while others don’t mind losing a bit in order to make those huge gains when they do win.

The point is that no two traders are alike. Even if a group of people were to trade the same system rules, each person’s end results would most likely be different from everyone else.

Is that a bad thing? Not at all!

Our uniqueness is what makes the world go round, so it’s important to know your lifestyle and personality to help identify trading strengths and weaknesses. Trying to force a trade that doesn’t match your personality will result in frustration and can hinder you from making consistent profits.

This lesson will take you through a variety of trading styles so that you can identify which one may match you the best.

每位交易者都是独一无二的

世界上大约有70亿人(包括伪装成人类的外星生命),而其中没有两个人是完全一样的。即使是同卵双胞胎,他们的指纹也不相同。

每个人都有他们的长相、个性、才能和口味。我们的喜好不同,我们是独一无二的。

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 1

交易也是一样。我们独特的个性使我们的交易各不相同。一些人可能会比较激进,他们是“A型”交易者,而一些交易者会比较放松,他们是“B型”交易者。一些交易者希望能够一直谋点小利,而有一些交易者则不介意为了获得巨大的收益而略受些损失。

关键是没有两个交易者会是相像的。即使一群人用同样的体系、规则交易,每个人最终获得的结果很有可能是不同的。

这是件坏事吗?一点也不。

我们的独一无二让这个世界得以运转,因此,了解你自己的生活方式和个性将帮助你抓住你在交易中的优势和劣势。强行执行与你个性不合的交易将会使你受挫,阻碍你持续获利。

本课程将带你了解各种交易风格,而你可以从中选择最适合你的那个。

Your Most Important Investment As A Forex Trader

A common mistake by many new traders is that they think they can make money… fast! While it’s true you can make money in a short amount of time, it doesn’t mean you will end up profitable in the long run.

A typical scenario is that a new trader reads a little bit about trading forex, finds a system online that claims to make money quickly, and then jumps right into trading because he feels like he’s got enough of a background to make millions of dollars.

Unfortunately after the “honeymoon” period is over and the excitement settles down, this new trader now realizes that trading isn’t as easy as he thought. The system doesn’t seem to be working like it claimed it would and he has no idea why the market is doing what it’s doing.

The most important thing you can invest in as a forex trader is your TIME! Every single trading day is a learning experience and if you stop learning, then you will never become a truly successful trader.

Take into account how much time it will take you to learn the basics. Then consider how much time it will take in your daily routine to read charts, news reports, record your trades, and be in the markets.

For someone who can dedicate a “full-time” job mentality to forex trading, then this is no problem. However, if you’re like most people, you may have a job, school work, tuba lessons, World of Warcraft dailies, so you cannot exactly dedicate your entire day to trading.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t trade, but it should give you some realistic expectations when it comes to determining your trading style. You probably can’t be a scalper or day trader, but maybe longer term trades will work better for your schedule.

Each day requires your time to analyze the market. Because news makes the market move, it’s important to consider the economic developments going on around the world and to make it part of your daily routine.

Some things to consider in your market analysis:

Forex Trader

  • Forex Market Developments – Look at what the “talk of the town” is in the forex world. See what the analysts are buzzing about and how the currencies reacted.
  • News Releases – Know what news reports are coming out each day and how they affect the markets. The more important the news report, the more movement you can expect to see in its currency. Make sure you check out our wicked-sick Forex Calendar
  • Market Prices of Other Commodities – The price of oil or U.S. Treasury yields can affect the way currencies move so it’s important to find out why these things are rising or falling and keep that in mind when trading currencies. Check out Happy Pip – not only is she single, but she loves playing those comdolls!
  • Current Events – Check out many news websites and get to know what is happening across the globe. Events such as major elections, military conflicts, and political scandals can all affect currency movements or global risk sentiment. Book mark Bookmark Forexgump’s Piponomics blog and read up on his analysis.

Finally, after going through your daily economic analysis, you have to look at the charts. Charts will give you insights into key support and resistance levels, trends, and possible price points in which to enter the market.

Here’s a tip – while Big Pippin ain’t chillin’ at the club, he’s busy working away on his charts. Make sure you take a look at his Daily Chart Art to see what sexy setups he’s spotted for the day!

时间就是金钱

新交易者最常见的一个错误就是认为他们可以很快赚钱!在短时间内,你的确可以赚到钱,但这不意味着你最终会是获利的。

一种常见的情形就是新交易者了解了一点外汇交易方面的知识,找到一个声称可以很快赚到钱的在线系统,然后就立即跳进了交易之中,因为他觉得他了解了足够多的背景知识,可以获利成千上万元。

不幸的是,“蜜月期”一结束,兴奋地情绪平定下来之后,新交易者意识到交易并不想他想象的那么简单。系统并不像声称的那样,而交易者不知道市场为什么会这样做,以及市场在做些什么。

作为交易者,你能投资的最重要的东西就是你的时间!每一个交易日都是一个学习经历,如果你停止了学习,那你将不可能成为一个真正成功的交易者。把你能花多长时间学习交易基础考虑在内。接下来,想想你能将多少时间用于每日例行事项,读表,浏览新闻报道,记录交易和执行交易等。

对于那些可以“全职”交易的人来说,这不成问题。然而,如果你和大多数人一样,你可能需要工作,做作业,学习低音号,打魔兽,所以你不能将时间全部用于交易。

这并不是说你不能交易,而是在你确定你的交易风格时,它可以给你些实际的参考。你可能不能做超短线交易者或即日平仓交易者,但是,长线交易可能会比较适合你的日程。

每天你都要花时间分析市场。由于新闻会引起市场变动,因此将世界经济发展的状况考虑在内十分重要,最好把它列在你的每日例行事项之中。

市场分析师要考虑的因素:

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 2

外汇市场发展:看看外汇市场的“热门话题”。了解分析师们在干些什么,以及货币是如何反应的。

新闻发布:了解每天即将发布的新闻及它们对市场的影响。新闻报道越重要,货币的变动就会越多。确保你查看了财经日历。

其他商品的市价:油价或美国国债的收益率将影响货币的变动,因此找出这些资产价格上升和下降的原因十分重要,并要在进行货币交易时把它牢记在心。

时事:浏览新闻网站,了解世界上正在发生的事情。重大选举、军事冲突及政治丑闻等时间将会影响货币走势或风险情绪。

最后,在你完成了每日经济分析后,你要查看图表。图表将带你了解重要的支撑和阻力,走势和入场的可能价格。

Scalping

Forex Scalper

Scalping is like those high action thriller movies that keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s fast paced, exciting, and mind-rattling all at once. These types of trades are usually only held onto for a few seconds to a few minutes at the most! The main objective for forex scalpers is to grab very small amounts of pips as many times as they can throughout the busiest times of the day.

Because scalpers basically have to be glued to the charts, it is best suited for those who can spend several hours of undivided attention to their trading.

It requires intense focus and quick thinking to be successful. Check out this post by our regular psychologist, Dr. Pipslow, on how to to work on your concentration skills.

It is not for those looking to make big wins all the time, but rather for those who like raking in small profits over the long run to make an overall profit.

Scalping the Forex Market

You might be a forex scalper if:

  • You like fast trading and excitement
  • You don’t mind being focused on your charts for several hours at a time
  • You are an impatient person who doesn’t like to wait for long trades
  • You can think fast and change bias, or direction, quickly
  • You have fast fingers (put those Starcraft 2 skills to work!)
  • You are a surgeon!

You might NOT be a forex scalper if:

  • You easily get stressed in fast moving environments
  • You can’t commit several hours of undivided attention to your charts
  • You’d rather make fewer trades with higher profit gains
  • You like taking your time to analyze the overall picture of the market

Some things to consider if you decide to scalp:

Trade only the most liquid pairs

Pairs such as the EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CHF, and USD/JPY offer the tightest spreads because they tend to have the highest trading volume. You want your spreads to be as tight as possible since you will be entering the market frequently.

Trade only during the busiest times of the day

The most liquid times of the day are during the session overlaps. This is from 2:00 am to 4:00 am and from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon Eastern Time (EST).

Make sure to account for the spread

Because you enter the market frequently, spreads will be a big factor in your overall profit. Be sure your targets are at least double your spread so that you can account for the times the market moves against you.

Try focusing on one pair first

Scalping is very intense and if you can put all your energy in one pair, you’ll have a better chance at being successful. If you start to get accustomed to the pace of things, then you can start by adding on another pair and see how it works for you.

Make sure you follow good money management

This goes for any type of trading, but since you are making so many trades within a day it is especially important that you are sticking to risk management practices.

Major news reports can throw you off

Because of slippage and high volatility, trading around highly anticipated news reports can be very dangerous. It sucks when you unexpectedly see price jump in the opposite direction of your trade because of a news report!

超短线交易

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 3

超短线交易就像那些高级动作片一样,让座位上的你感到坐立不安。它节奏快、刺激、活跃头脑。这类交易通常只持续几秒,至多几分钟。超短线交易者的主要目的是在一天中交易最繁忙的时候尽可能多的抓住几点的收益。

由于超短线交易者基本上要一直盯着图表,对于那些可以连续花几小时交易的交易者来说最合适。

要十分专注、思维敏捷才能成功。对于那想要赚大钱的交易者来说,超短线交易不适用,它适用于那些积小利成大利的交易者。

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 4

你能成为一位超短线交易者,如果:

你喜欢快速交易和刺激

你不介意一次花几小时盯着图表

你不是很有耐心,不愿等待长时交易

你思维敏捷,能很快消除偏见,或改变方向

你手快(把星际争霸中的技巧应用进来!)

你是位外科医生!

你不能成为一位超短线交易者,如果:

在快速运转的环境中,你的压力感会激增

你不能几小时不分散注意力,盯着图表

你宁愿做高收益的交易,交易次数少没关系

你喜欢花时间研究市场的整体情况

如果你决定要进行超短线交易,你要将下列事项考虑在内:

只交易流动性最高的货币对

欧元/美元,英镑/美元,美元/瑞郎,和美元/日元等货币对的价差最小,因为它们的交易量最高。由于你要频繁进入市场,因此价差越小越好。

仅在一天中最繁忙的时段交易

流动性最高的时间是在交易时段重叠的时候,那是北京时间下午2:00到4:00,及晚上8:00到12:00。

将价差考虑在内

由于你频繁进入市场,价差将成为影响你整体收益的重要因素之一。确保你的目标设定至少是价差的两倍,从而你可以应对市场走势与你的预期相反的情况。

先将精力集中于一个货币对

超短线交易十分激烈,如果你能把所有的注意力都放在一个货币对上,你成功的几率会比较大。如果你了解了交易的节奏,你可以增加一个货币对,并看看这样的效果如何。

保证遵循良好的资金管理

这适用于每一种类型的交易,但是由于你要在一天内完成交易,所以坚持良好的资金管理尤为重要。

重大新闻报道能将你甩开

由于高波动性,在备受期待的报告发布期间进行交易十分危险。由于新闻报道,价格变动与你的预期相反,那将十分糟糕!准备好,并不时查看财经日历,看看将发生些什么。

Day Trading

Forex Day Trader

Day trading is another short term trading style, but unlike scalping, you are typically only taking one trade a day and closing it out when the day is over. These traders like picking a side at the beginning of the day, acting on their bias, and then finishing the day with either a profit or a loss. They DON’T like holding their trades overnight.

Day trading are suited for forex traders that have enough time throughout the day to analyze, execute and monitor a trade. If you think scalping is too fast but swing trading is a bit slow for your taste, then day trading might be for you.

You might be a forex day trader if:

  • You like beginning and ending a trade within one day.
  • You have time to analyze the markets at the beginning of the day and can monitor it throughout the day.
  • You like to know whether or not you win or lose at the end of the day.

You might NOT be a forex day trader if:

  • You like longer or shorter term trading.
  • You don’t have time to analyze the markets and monitor it throughout the day.
  • You have a day job.

Some things to consider if you decide to day trade:

Stay informed on the latest fundamentals events to help you choose a direction

You will want to keep yourself up-to-date on the latest economic news so that you can make your trading decisions at the beginning of the day.

Do you have time to monitor your trade?

If you have a full time job, consider how you will manage your time between your work and trading. Basically….don’t get fired from your job because you are always looking at your charts!

Types of Day Trading

Trend trading

Trend trading is when you look at a longer time frame chart and determine an overall trend. Once the overall trend is established, you move to a smaller time frame chart and look for trading opportunities in the direction of that trend. Using indicators on the shorter time frame chart will give you an idea of when to time your entries. For an example of this style of trading, visit Pip Surfer’s blog as he trades his world-renowned Cowabunga System.

First determine what the overall trend is by looking at a longer time frame. You can use indicators to help you confirm the trend.

Day Trading System

Once you determine the overall trend, you can then move to a smaller timeframe and look for entries in the same direction. Remember this? It’s called Multi-time Frame Analysis!

Entry on 15-minute chart

Countertrend trading

Counter trend day trading is similar to trend trading except that once you determine your overall trend, you look for trades in the opposite direction. The idea here is to find the end of a trend and get in early when the trend reverses. This is a little more risky but can have huge payoffs.

Counter trend day trading

In this example we see that there was a long and exhausted downtrend on the 4hr chart. This gives us. an indication that the market may be ready for a reversal.

15-minute countertrend entry

Since our thinking is “counter-trend”, we would look for trades in the opposite direction of the overall trend on a smaller timeframe such as a 15 minute chart.

Four hour countertrend reversal

Remember that going opposite of the trend is very risky, but if timed correctly, can have huge rewards!

Breakout trading

Breakout day trading is when you look at the range a pair has made during certain hours of the day and then placing trades on either side, hoping to catch a breakout in either direction. This is particularly effective when a pair has been a tight range because it is usually an indication that the pair is about to make a big move. Your goal here is to set yourself up so that when the move takes place you are ready to catch the wave!

Breakout day trading

In breakout trading, you determine a range where support and resistance have been holding strongly. Once you do, you can set entry points above and below your breakout levels. As a rule of thumb you want to target the same amount of pips that makes up your determined range. Make sure you check out our “Trading Breakouts” lesson so you get this down pat!

日内交易

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 5

即日平仓交易是另一种短期交易风格,你通常一天进行一个交易,在当天结束前了结交易。这类交易者喜欢在一天开始时依据他们自己的见解选择一边开始交易,然后结束一天交易,或赢或赔。他们不把交易留过夜。

即日平仓交易者是那些在一天之中有足够的时间分析、执行和监控交易的人。如果你认为超短线交易太快,而波段交易有点慢,那即日平仓交易或许适合你。

你能成为一名即日平仓交易者,如果:

你在一天之间开始、结束交易。

在一天开始时你有时间分析市场,而且可以整天监控市场。

你想在一天结束时知道你是获利还是受损。

你不能成为一名即日平仓交易者,如果:

你喜欢长期或短期交易。

你没有时间分析市场,并一整天监控它的变化。

你白天要工作。

如果你要进行即日平仓交易,你需要考虑:

及时了解最新的基本事件,帮你定位方向

你想让自己掌握最新的经济新闻,从而在一天开始时,制定出交易决定。

你有时间监控交易吗?

如果你有全职工作,想想你要如何平衡你的工作和交易。基本上……不要因为总盯着图表看而被炒了鱿鱼。

即日平仓交易的类型

趋势交易

趋势交易是指你查看时间段较长的图表,以确定整体趋势。一旦整体趋势确立了,你可以转向时间段较短的图表,沿着趋势走向寻找交易机会。在时间段较短的图表上使用指示器将帮助你找到合适的入场点位。

首先通过观察时间段较长的图表确定整体趋势。你可以用指示器来帮助你确认走势。

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 6

一旦你确定了整体走势,你可以转向时间段较短的图表,沿着同一方向寻找入场点位。记住了吗?这叫多时段分析!

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 7

反向交易

反向交易与趋势交易类似,一旦你确定了整体趋势,你反向寻找交易机会。也就是说,找到一个趋势的终结点,在趋势反转时先行进入。这有点冒险,不过回报巨大。

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 8

我们在这个例子里看到的是四小时图表上显示的一个延续较长时间,即将耗尽的下行趋势。它告诉我们市场即将出现逆转。

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 9

由于我们的想法是“逆势”的,我们将在与整体趋势相反的方向里寻找交易,通常是在时间段较短,如在15分钟的图表上寻找。

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 10

记住逆势是风险很高的,但如果使用得当,可以带来巨大的收益!

突破交易

突破交易是指你在一天中的一段时间观察一对货币的走势,然后在走势的两侧都设定交易,期望能在其中一边抓住突破交易。当货币对波动幅度较小时,这类交易十分有效,因为它通常意味着较大的变动将会出现。你的目标是设定好点位,等待变动出现,以便能够抓住它。

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 11

在突破交易中,你确定一个支撑和阻力持续较强的范围。完成后,你可以在突破水平上下设定入场点位。

首要规则是你的目标点数要能弥补你确定的范围。查看“交易突破”课程,并记牢它。

Swing Trading

Forex Swing Trading

Swing trading is a longer term trading style that requires patience to hold your trades for several days at a time.

It is ideal for those who can’t monitor their charts throughout the day but can dedicate a couple of hours analyzing the market every night.

This is probably best suited for those who have full-time jobs or school, but have enough free time to stay up-to-date with what is going on in the global economies.

Forex swing trading attempts to identify medium term trends and enter only when there seems to be a high probability of winning.

Because trades last much longer than one day, larger stop losses are required to weather volatility, and a forex trader must adapt that to their money management plan.

You will most likely see trades go against you during the holding time since there can be many fluctuations of the price during the shorter time frames.

It is important that you are able to remain calm during these times and trust in your analysis.

Since trades usually have larger targets, spreads won’t have as much of an impact to your overall profits. As a result, trading pairs with larger spreads and lower liquidity is acceptable.

You might want to be a forex swing trader if:

  • You don’t mind holding your trades for several days.
  • You are willing to take fewer trades, but more careful to make sure your trades are very good setups.
  • You don’t mind having large stop losses.
  • You are patient.
  • You are able to remain calm when trades move against you.

You might NOT want to be a forex swing trader if:

  • You like fast paced, action-packed trading.
  • You are impatient and like to know whether you are right or wrong immediately.
  • You get sweaty and anxious when trades go against you.
  • You can’t spend a couple of hours every day to analyze the markets.
  • You can’t give up your World of Warcraft raiding sessions.

If you have a full time job but enjoy trading on the side, then swing trading might be more your style! Make sure you swing by our “Show me the Money” thread so that you can interact with other swing traders.

波段交易

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 12

波段交易是一种长期交易方式,需要耐心地将交易保持几天。

对于那些不能整天监控图表,只能在晚上用几个小时来分析市场的交易者来说,这是一种理想的交易方式。

这可能比较适合那些有工作或要上学,而又有足够的空闲时间了解世界经济状况的人。

波段交易者试图确定中期趋势,仅在很有可能获利的情况下才会入场交易。

由于交易延续时间超过一天,需要设定较大的止损以应对波动,交易者要根据资金管理计划调整止损。

在你保持交易期间,你很有可能看到交易走势与你的预期相反,因为在较短的时间段内价格会发生波动。

最重要的是你能在这段时间内保持冷静,相信自己的分析。

由于交易目标通常较大,价差对整体收益的影响不大。因此,交易价差较大,流动率较低的货币对也是可行的。

你能成为一名波段交易者,如果:

你不介意将交易保持几天。

你愿意做较少的交易,对于确定交易设定是否合理更上心。

你不介意较大的止损设定。

你有耐心。

当交易与你的预期相反时,你能保持冷静。

你不能成为一名波段交易者,如果:

你喜欢节奏快,行动多的交易。

你没有耐心,想立即知道你的判断是对是错。

当交易与你的预期相反时,你会浑身冒汗,焦虑。

你不能每天花几小时研究市场行情。

你不能放弃你的魔兽时间。

如果你是一位全职工作者,而又喜欢交易,那波段交易将符合你的风格!

Position Trading

Forex Position Trader

Position trading is the longest term trading and can have trades that last for several months to several years!

This kind of forex trading is reserved for the ultra-patient traders, and requires a good understanding of the fundamentals.

Because position trading is held for so long, fundamental themes will be the predominant focus when analyzing the markets.

Fundamentals dictate the long term trends of currency pairs and it is important that you understand how economic data affects your countries and its future outlook.

Because of the lengthy holding time of your trades, your stop losses will be very large.

You must make sure you are well capitalized or you will most likely get margin called.

For an idea of how much money you should have in your trading account, check out our money management lesson.

Forex position trading also requires thick skin because it is almost guaranteed that your trades will go against you at one point or another.

These won’t just be little retracements either.

You may experience huge swings and you must be ready and have absolute trust in your analysis in order to remain calm during these times.

You might be a forex position trader if:

  • You are an independent thinker. You have to be able to ignore popular opinion and make your own educated guesses as to where the market is going.
  • You have a great understanding of fundamentals and have good foresight into how they affect your currency pair in the long run.
  • You have thick skin and can weather any retracements you face.
  • You have enough capital to withstand several hundred pips if the market goes against you
  • You don’t mind waiting for your grand reward. Long term forex trading can net you several hundred to several thousands of pips. If you get excited being up 50 pips and already want to exit your trade, consider moving to a shorter term trading style.
  • You are extremely patient and calm.

You might NOT be a forex position trader if:

  • You easily get swayed by popular opinions on the markets.
  • You don’t have a good understanding of how fundamentals affect the markets in the long run.
  • You aren’t patient. Even if you are somewhat patient, this still might not be the trading style for you. You have to be the ultimate zen master when it comes to being this kind of patient!
  • You don’t have enough starting capital.
  • You don’t like it when the market goes against you.
  • You like seeing your results fast. You may not mind waiting a few days, but several months or even years is just too long for you to wait.

头寸交易者

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 13

头寸交易是最长期的交易模式,能让交易延续几个月甚至几年。

这类交易是为超有耐心的交易者设置的,并且要求交易者要十分了解基本面。

因为头寸交易留存时间较长,分析市场时,基本主题是主要关注点。

基本面主要用于分析货币对的长期走势,对你理解经济数据对国家经济的影响和经济前景十分重要。

由于交易留存时间较长,你的止损设定将会较大。

你必须确保有充足的资金,否则你将有可能被要求追加保证金。

至于你应该在交易账户里存多少钱,请查资金管理课程。头寸交易也需要脸皮厚,因为它要保证在交易偏离你的预期时,你能继续交易。

那可不只是一点点回撤。

你有可能会经历大幅波动,你要做好准备,坚定地相信自己的分析,在这种情况下保持冷静。

你能成为一名头寸交易者,如果:

你是个独立的思考者。你能够忽略大家的意见,自己判断市场的走向。

你要十分了解基本面,能预见它们对你所交易的货币对的影响。

你脸皮厚,可以承受回撤。

你有足够的资金,当市场与你的预期相反时,能够接受几百点的变动。

你不介意等待大丰收的到来。长期的交易可以给你带来几百甚至几千点的收益。如果上升50点你就觉得十分兴奋,想要离开交易,考虑一下选择较短期的交易风格。

你十分有耐心,且很冷静。

你不能成为一名头寸交易者,如果:

你很容易受市场上舆论的影响。

你不了解从长远角度来看,基本面是怎样影响市场的。

你没有耐心。即使你有耐心,这也不是适合你的交易风格。你必须拥有禅宗大师般的耐心。

你没有足够的开始资金。

你不喜欢市场背离你的预期。

你喜欢很快看到成效。你不介意等几天,但是几个月甚至几年,你等不了那么长的时间。

What Type Of Forex Trader Are You?

Scalper, Day Trader, Position Trader, Swing Trader

There are four main types of forex traders:

  1. The Scalper
  2. The Day Trader
  3. The Swing Trader
  4. The Position Trader

Scalpers hold onto for a few seconds to a few minutes at the most. Their main objective is to grab very small amounts of pips as many times as they can throughout the busiest times of the day.

Day traders usually pick side at the beginning of the day, acting on their bias, and then finishing the day with either a profit or a loss. These kinds of traders do not hold their trades overnight.

Swing traders are for those people that like to hold on to trades for several days at a time. These types of traders can’t monitor their charts throughout the day so they dedicate a couple hours analyzing the market every night to make sound trading decisions.

Position traders are those that have trades that last for several weeks, months, or even years. These traders know that fundamental themes will be the predominant factor when analyzing the markets and therefore make their trading decisions based on them.

No matter what style you choose, you have to make sure that it is truly you.

Always changing your forex trading style can lead to trouble and is a sure fire way to the doghouse.

But if you try scalping and you realize after a week that it’s too fast or too draining, then be flexible enough to switch it up.

总结:你是哪一类的交易者

Which Type of Trader Are You 你属哪类交易者 14

有四种类型的交易者:

1.超短线交易者

2.日内交易者

3.波段交易者

4.头寸交易者

超短线交易者将交易保持几秒,最多几分钟。他们的目标是在一天中最繁忙的时间了尽可能多的抓住几点的变动。

即日平仓交易者在一天开始时,根据他们自己的观点选择一边, 然后结束一天的交易,可能获利,也可能蒙受损失。这类交易者不会让他们的交易过夜。

波段交易者适合那些能把交易保留几天的人。这类交易者不能一整天监控他们的图表,因此他们每晚花几个小时分析市场,以便做出良好的决定。

头寸交易者是那些可以让交易延续几周,几个月,甚至几年的人。这类交易者知道,分析市场时,基本主题是决定性因素,因此他们据此决定如何交易。

不论你选择哪一种交易方式,你都要确定那就是你的选择。

经常改变交易风格将带来问题,是一条不合适的道路。

但是如果你尝试超短期交易,过了几周,你觉得它太快,太让人筋疲力尽,那就灵活的变换选择吧。
