I do not think that it is a good idea to follow others trading idea. It makes us confused. And sometimes greedy also which is very bad for trading. The best idea is to find out what suits you. Which type of trading is best for you. Then make a strategy that suits with your trading personality. Forex is a long term business. So we can't stay long by following others.
You are absolutely right. When I try to focus what others are saying about market. I loss my judgement. If their opinions is against mine, I can not stick to my own decision. As a result many times I lose money. Now I have stopped listening others.
Watching other's trades to get an idea of how things are done and for learning purposes, that is fine. But if one starts to rely only on other's trades and makes no use of his/her own ideas and concepts, then such trading is of no use. Sooner or later, such traders exit forex trading.
In my opinion, do not follow the trading ideas of other brokers just take a reference from them that how he trades, in which conditions, at what time frame, which trade size, leverage, etc. and try them on demo and then change it according to your strategy and idea and maybe you get good results it's like referring for a project from Wikipedia 😁
It is very important to believe in yourself in trading. When one rejects one's analysis and looks at the analysis of others, there is no satisfaction in trading. Greed can often lead to losses in trading. Greed destroys trading careers. So always trade from positive to believing in your analysis.
Blindly following trade ideas is of no use, but yes using them to analyse the trend can definitely help. as a beginner you can use them for learning but ultimately build you own strategies to check for trade ideas.

I want to ask one question. tell me how do you find your trading idea without contacting other traders and try different trading ways? i don't agree with you that we can't stay long by following others. market is always change. and you have to find othertrading ideas. so why dont following others while that?
It is very important to believe in your analysis in trading. Many traders can do good analysis but rely on the analysis of others due to a lack of confidence. The next observation was that his analysis was good. So it is very important to build confidence in your trading analysis.
Copying another traders trading plan is an effective way for a person that a busy schedule to take for trading and make sure that they make money even though they do a lot of work. ti makes things easier and gives you time to focus on other things. It is not recommend though.
Following other trades trade idea is only effective if you are not a beginner. If you are a beginner and you want to copy trade then you are going to miss it a lot of things and the chances of you making it big in forex is very small because you don't ever fully understand what you're doing.
