Forex Trading Risk Minimizing Strategies Oman

Every successful forex trading strategy will include clear-cut tactics for risk minimization. The major cause of forex trading loss is the poor implementation of risk minimization strategies, especially by novice traders. Right risk control and management is very important for forex success because the lack of which can made the trader 'out of the business'. The main risk minimizing strategies available for traders include,

  • Management of Leverage: Most forex brokers offer a leverage of 1:100 for trading currency pairs. But blindly utilizing this opportunity can cause high risks. Leverage is regarded as a 'double edged sward' that maximizes both profit and loss.
  • Effective Stop-Losses: Placing and moving stop-losses is the most effective risk management strategy a trader got when the positions are open. One of the main reasons that most novice trader fail is the lack of stop-losses or wide unrealistic stop-losses.
  • Lack of Demo Trading: Demo trading is so far the best tool available for traders to test their strategies without risking any money. Now most forex brokers offer demo trading in real market conditions. This enables traders to practice their trades by effectively placing trades and managing risks.
  • Keeping Realistic Profit Targets: Aiming for higher unrealistic targets can hurt traders in this volatile market. Traders should follow a 'hope for best, prepare for worst' strategy when trading currencies.

Tight Forex Spread Difference in UAE

Tight Forex Spread Difference in UAE

In online forex trading, spread difference or simple spread is regarded as the 'cost of trading'. It is the difference in between ask and bid prices for a currency pair. In global forex market, there are no broker or market maker commissions or fees; the spread difference is the benefit that they receive for offering order executions for retail traders.

Over the years the foreign exchange trading spread difference has been constantly narrowed. Before 8 or 10 years the tightest spread available for trading most liquid currency pairs like EUR/USD was 5 (or 5 pips apart). But now the tightest spread can be just 1.5 to 2 pips. This has resulted in huge reduction in the cost of trading and more profit for retail traders. For example the cost of trading a standard lot of EUR/USD will be $50 if the spread difference is 5 pips but will be only $20 if the spread difference is 2 pips. Also profiting from FX trading would have require high price swings of 6 or more pips some years ago but now the trader can profit from just 3 or more pip price change. The increase in trading volume, in the number of retail traders and increasing broker competition are the main factors of this ever-tightening spreads.

Now there are brokerage firms offering fixed spreads, variable spreads and combination of them. Fixed spread means pre-determined spread difference for every currency pair. Variable spreads involve tightest spread difference when the market is liquid and widest spreads when the market is less liquid.
