The mind-bending effect of ‘real money’ trading

How do you learn to be a really good trader? A typical experience might be to learn a trading strategy, apply it to a demo account (or paper trade it) and then take it live once some virtual profits have been seen. And that’s a perfectly sensible way to go about things. Problems can arise, […]

The profit figures I give you are for win only, but imagine the amount of times these selections finish 2nd and […]

How to use true ‘set and forget’ orders

A question arrives from reader Tony B… “If the market was above the eurusd figure [the price he wants to buy at] how could I have placed the limit buy orders please? Should I put an alert on to wait for the market to drop?” Now Tony is one of our 4DFX members. He’s getting […]
