There are many ways to make money FOREX trading, but not matter which one you choose it will always be about having the best tools and resources on your side. That is what the pros do so you should not do any different.
In my experience, in order to realistically make money FOREX trading you should have at least one of these tools and resources:
1) A first class FOREX trading course with a set of precise and effective strategies to enter and exit the market safely and profitably.
2) A FOREX trading signal software or service to pinpoint the right time to enter and exit the market for a profitable trade.
3) An automated FOREX trading system with the ability to place and close trade orders for a profit all by itself.
The first option is always a desirable one, because it will give you the edge of awareness and you will understand why and how you are trading in a profitable way. The downside here is that FOREX trading safely armed only with your own analysis of the market will take you some time. Also, once you have mastered a few strategies, you will have to dedicate some time during the day in order to analyze the market and place trade orders.
The second option will not require you to study or learn the ropes of FOREX trading, because all you will have to do is follow the signals in order to place the trading orders at the precise moment signaled by the software or service. This option however, will demand some time during the day, because if you are not in front of your computer when the software or service spots a profitable entry point, you could lose many good trades.
The third option to make money FOREX trading -and the most popular these days- is the fully automated one, because it works an a similar way as the second alternative, only here you will not have to place trades manually. In fact, you will not have to place any trades whatsoever, as all the trading activity will be carried out by the software, meaning that you can be at work, sleeping or out dinning and still you will be making money FOREX trading.
Since the FOREX market runs 24 hours per day, it really pays to have the ability to analyze it and place trades at any hour of the day or night, something no human could do.
There are a few systems that have been tested and proven to be profitable, so if you want to make money FOREX trading you should get yourself the one that best suits your style and needs as a trader.
