Forex Trading Made E-Z Review

This Forex Trading Made E-Z review will examine the system for trading on the foreign exchange currency markets developed by George C Smith. When you order Forex Trading Made E-Z you get an ebook and 12 training videos setting out the system in step by step form.

The basic structure is that you have the ebook which you can download instantly when you place your order (any time of the day or night). Inside the ebook you have the links to each video at the point where you need it. So you will see a written explanation of a chart or a technique, and there will be a link right there to a video that you can access on the internet showing you the actual action.

Strengths

The ebook is 84 pages but there are plenty of charts so there is not a huge ton of text to read and remember. This is basically one system and George Smith tells you how he trades using candlestick charts and latitude lines with the aim of increasing his bank by 5% each day.

5% each day may not sound much until you do the math. It comes out to mean that if you had no losing days, you would double your money every 17 days. In 90 days you could grow $100 to over $7,300. Of course losing days are a fact of life and if you don’t accept that you will be tempted to take stupid risks, so it is better not to expect anything like that speed of growth. George Smith’s point here really is that you should not be trying to make more than 5% a day.

The combination of ebook and videos is excellent. Most people’s best way of learning to do something practical is to follow along with somebody else showing them, and online videos are perfect for that. But it’s also good to have something you can print out on paper and refer back to quickly when you just need to check something.

Experienced forex traders will probably skim through the first few chapters of the ebook quickly and go ahead and try the system right away. Beginners should take it step by step and watch all of the videos.

One of the strongest points of Forex Trading Made E-Z is that it explains everything for the complete beginner, in the shortest and simplest way. There is no fluff about the history of forex trading or the relative merits of different currency pairs. It explains what you need to know to start making money and that’s all.

At the same time, there is a link in the introductory section to another ebook that you can download for free that will explain the theory in greater detail for those who want it.

Weaknesses

If there is one weakness it may be that complete beginners will be tempted to rush through the ebook without watching the videos. Some people who do this may be scared off by looking at the charts and techniques in later chapters which could seem complicated if they did not take time to understand what was going on in the earlier steps.

However, the bottom line is that to be successful with forex trading you do need to be happy looking at charts and figures and dealing with money. If the sight of a candlestick chart makes you run for the hills, you probably should not venture into the live markets at all.

On the other hand, if the first time you see a candlestick chart you are eager to find out what it means and discover patterns in the blocks of color, you could be well suited to forex trading even if you are a complete beginner right now. You will enjoy getting to grips with the system laid out in Forez Made E-Z.

Just be sure to go right back to the start, watch each video as you come to it and try out every tactic step by step. George Smith is not a big fan of demo accounts but if you are just starting out with forex trading I believe you should use a demo account for this system in the very beginning just so you understand exactly how each technique works. This saves you losing money just because you misunderstood something or applied one idea the wrong way around.

Support

To receive support you must opt in to the updates notification list when you are ordering the system. Then you will have the possibility of contacting George Smith personally if you need any help or clarification.

You will receive updates with new ideas, explanations and even links to new videos from time to time. So definitely don’t miss your chance to sign up for the updates list when you get Forex Trading Made E-Z.

George seems to be a friendly guy who will help you out if he can. Keep in mind though that you are not dealing with a huge company here. He is just one retired guy with limited time who is not going to be online 24/7. Allow a few days to hear back from him.

The Bottom Line

Gives you one clear system in double delivery through ebook and videos. Great for beginners who are wondering where to start among all the conflicting ideas about forex on the internet. More experienced traders can pick up new ideas.

Forex Trading Made E-Z review verdict: 5 stars.

How To Make Money From Forex Trends

Identifying and profiting from forex trends and patterns is the way that most forex traders make money. Your main aim when you are trading the foreign exchange market will be to identify a trend as it is forming and jump in so that you can profit from it.

Trends are very simple to see in hindsight when we look at a chart. A candlestick chart shows them most clearly but you can see them on any type of chart.

If you draw a line above the low points of the candlestick shadows while prices are generally rising you will see the slope of the uptrend. Similarly if you draw a line above the high points of the shadows while prices are generally falling, you will see the slope of the downtrend.

There are also sideways trends when the prices are fluctuating up and down between two points but not breaking beyond them. In this case the lines drawn above and below the shadows will be just about horizontal.

Where you have a horizontal line, you could expect a breakout going in one direction or the other eventually. Some traders will set up orders to enter the market when the price goes to a certain point either above or below the line.

Other traders will use sideways forex trends to indicate a change in the main movement of the prices. For example if the sideways pattern follows a pretty much regular upward movement, it may indicate resistance to the price moving any further. You could surmise that the upper line is a resistance line and a downturn will follow to bring the prices back within the band that is supported by the market.

Before using any of these methods to create a system, however, you should do extensive testing. Backtests will help you decide whether the system is worth investigating further. Then always run real time tests using a demo account before you back your system with real money. Remember that forex is very risky and even the best of systems have their failures or what may be called losing runs.

If trend lines are drawn correctly they can be just as accurate a way of predicting breakouts or major changes in the direction of price movements as any other method. However you have to be careful to be objective, especially when dealing with the real time market.

When we are waiting for certain conditions to be fulfilled so that we can place an order, it is tempting to jump the gun and assume that a pattern is forming when really it is too early to be sure. So watch out. When drawing lines for forex trends it is deceptively easy to draw what you want to have happen, instead of what is happening.

Electronic Currency Trading: How It Works

Electronic currency trading is simply a way of dealing in currency exchange online. You may have seen it described as foreign exchange, forex or fx trading. It is something that appeals to many people who are looking for a way to make money on the internet using their home computer.

Forex is a little like stock trading, although the market itself is very different. You have the same aim of buying something hoping the price will rise. But with forex you are always dealing with money so you can also make money from a falling price, by exchanging out of the falling currency into a steady or rising currency.

Imagine for example that you are trading on the currency pair EUR/USD. This is a common combination for beginners. The US dollar and euro are most traded currencies and there is a lot of information available to help you, so it is a good choice to start.

With this pair you can choose to either buy or sell euros. If you place a buy order, this is called ‘going long’. You would do this if you think the euro will strengthen or rise in value (or the dollar will fall).

If you place a sell order, that is ‘going short’. You would do this if you think the dollar will strengthen (or the euro will weaken).

Your aim is to make a profit by closing the trade when the price goes the way that you anticipated. Closing the trade would involve selling euros if you had gone long, or buying them if you had gone short.

Of course, there is a risk. The price could go the wrong way, and you could make a loss. So it is important to have good information and a profitable trading system.

You do not need a lot of money to get started with electronic currency trading. Many brokers will let you begin with a couple hundred dollars, although it is better if that is not all the money that you have in the world!

Forex trading involves margins. This means that you can place orders for a lot more money than you actually have. You do this through a broker who will guarantee the balance of the order. They know you will be closing the trade at some time and if one currency is falling, another is rising. Currency values are relative, so it is not possible for all currencies to crash in the way that all stocks can crash.

Currencies can be very volatile but you can use stop losses to ensure that you do not lose more than you are willing to risk. Some brokers operate limited risk accounts where they will automatically close your trade if you lose the balance of your account. This means you do not have the dreaded margin calls which can be so disastrous for stock traders.

A Quick And Easy Foreign Exchange Tutorial

Your first foreign exchange tutorial will cover the basics of what you need to do to get started with forex trading. The aim, of course, is to have you making money by predicting the rise and fall of one currency against another and opening and closing your trades at the right moment.

It takes time to learn to be a successful forex trader but you can cut corners if you have a good introductory program that covers everything you need to know. This includes:

- understanding the principles of currency trading including managing your account, trading margins, and allowing for the cost of the spread

- technical analysis: discovering how to recognize trends in the markets, the different types of charts and how to interpret them so that you can profit from market movements

- fundamental analysis: understanding what to do in the face of major national or international economic events that are likely to impact on currency values.

- finding out how to minimize your risk and protect your trades with stops

- developing the power to apply your system without allowing losses or emotions such as fear to throw you off balance and affect your chances of earning long term profits

A good place to pick up hints and tips can be a forex trading online forum. There are many of these on the internet and members will comment about all kinds of issues relating to the market and their own trading. This can be a great place to go if you have questions.

However, forums have some drawbacks. One is that the advice you get may be very contradictory. There is more than one way to trade forex profitably and it can be confusing to be receiving advice from several different people, each with their own approach. It is usually better to stick to your own system.

The other problem with taking advice on forums is that you do not usually know anything about the people who are posting. Somebody could sound very knowledgeable and then it turns out they have only ever used a demo account and never made a real trade in their lives. Some people spend more time hanging out in forums than trading. Just because somebody is very active in a forum does not mean he or she is an expert.

So do not rely on forums, free guides or untested theories for your trading system. When you are starting out in forex trading you need a solid grounding in the basics and a system that is easy to follow and actually works. As with most things in life you usually have to pay for the best. So look for a foreign exchange tutorial that is part of a profitable forex system.
