Forex Trading Myths (and honest answers)

November 10th, 2022

Forex trading online has become more and more popular in recent years,Guest Posting due in large part to the popularity of stock trading on the internet. But along with this popularity comes the inevitable hype, myths, and at times, complete untruths. Here is the list of the most common Forex myths:

· Forex trading is easy. First the truth. It is easy to start Forex trading and it is easy to buy and sell currencies online. But succeeding and making money is anything but easy. It takes education, time and practice. Of course, there are talented traders that learn very fast, but generally speaking, starting traders should dedicate part of their time to educating themselves, practicing and developing strategies.

· Forex is gambling. This is a myth and is often heard about all forms of trading; whether it’s stocks, bonds, futures, options etc. In reality Forex is the epitome of macro economics in the purest form, even more so than other types of market trading as it deals solely with the performance, structure, and behavior of national or regional economies as a whole, and their interrelationships with each other. If this were true, then all the national economic administrators, advisors, consultants and students are the world’s best gamblers. Rather we are all students of economics, technical analysis, fundamental analysis and psychology.

· Forex is a scam. Forex got some bad press after High Yielding Investment Programs (HYIP’s) started to claim that they earn money on Forex. More recently a firm in New York was shut down and another’s internet trading site dismantled for bilking investors out of millions. Fortunately prison terms have been issued for bringing discredit to a legitimate, regulated and law abiding industry. Actually Forex is a real currency market where anyone can trade for themselves and be responsible for their own decisions, so it’s hardly a scam. The only scams you should be afraid of as a Forex trader are scamming brokers and marketers that sell Forex books, sure-fire strategies, trading systems, guaranteed returns or the usual “to good to be true” devices.
