Hey all - newbie here from London.

Having just finished the Babypips course and read Mark Douglas' Trading in the zone, I'm keen to develop my learning and build a system that will eventually get me out of my 9-5 and fully into swing trading. Pray for me!


I've actually been offered a chance to be mentored 1-on-1 for a £2.5K cost, so I'm currently trying to get as much advice as possible before committing

Many thanks,

That's a high price tag, all I can say is do your research, understand exactly what the value is being offered and only you can decide if it is right for you.
Best of luck with your Forex trading, I hope you crack it :)

Trading in the zone is a good book. So is The Compound Effect...

The beginner should use demo account minimum for three months, sometimes many brokers organize demo contest with real money prizing. Newcomers can join here. It could be great to acquire real trading exeprince.

In Fx trading, learning is not easy despite of having too many sources including pips school, learning sometimes boning and usually new traders get tempts to start trading without enough knowledge and become fascinated with the way of trading live which may cause laziness and trapped by wishful thinking get rich quickly scheme

Does the book cover trading strategies or is it more about motivation and phycology? I need a book that has a good strategy

newcomers first of all have to ensure  all basic level , i like most pips school which is mainly considered as a best learning place for newcomers. besides this school demo is more appropriate for live trading experience.

in Forex trading we the traders who are particularly newcomers make so many mistake in our trading life due to lacking proper trading experience. Taking wrong trade without proper analysis and risk management is one of the major from all of them.

Risk to Reward ratio is vital in trading.

We will all make mistakes as we learn.

Those that will be successful are the ones who will review their trades and learn from the mistake.

R to R is not to be underestimated. I remember the first time someone explained to me that even with a win rate lower than 50% you can still make profit if you use a 1:2 RR. I have focused all my trading strategy around using high RR. I am still learning but I have confidence that I will get there

Good Risk to reward means take only those trades which has very high probability of success with take profit and stoploss ratio of more than 2 or even more.

But if someone will take just every trade and hope the market will give at least 2 times profit pips compared to his stop loss, then it is a wrong approach.

All new traders must reduce the number trades they take every day or every week to half and then, naturally their trading profits will increase since they will take only high probability trades.

If emotions create problem for new traders, then set and forget type style of trading is best with pending orders to get triggered automatically with fixed stoploss and takeprofit.

If new traders will enter market orders, it very easy to make wrong decisions based on emotions or fear of missing out trades etc.

If you are taking high probability trades with this R to R you will go far.
A very sound principle to follow

Demo trading the first of trading in Forex , but Honestly speaking I have never used this trading place when I was a newbie. Because I was bored in here. I studied in Pips School and besides this i was in live account with small balance. It worked greatly instead of demo account.
