forex trading tipsIndividuals who get into forex often make at least a few mistakes before the first day of trading is done. That’s to be expected. When you’re learning something new, you don’t have the benefit of experience. At the same time, you don’t want to burn through your trading capital making stupid mistakes every day. Here’s what you need to avoid to make sure your lessons are good ones.

Know When To Cut and Run

A lot of traders stay in a trade too long. This happens because they don’t set firm rules before they start trading. This is an uncomfortable thing for most people to get used to, but you absolutely need to write out the rules for your trades before you open up your trading software.

Things like profit and loss targets, stop losses, and entry points for the day should be some of the first things you define. Having a set of definitions like this makes it easy to trade because all you need to do is play your trading “by the book.” There’s no emotional response to a market correction or a temporary setback. Trading becomes objective instead of subjective.

wireless card readerWireless billing systems are here to stay. Vendors like Shopify are now offering innovative but miniature credit card terminals. These terminals can be plugged into tablets or smartphones to process payments and they are turning out to be quite popular.

Unfortunately, retailers have yet to be convinced to invest in these systems, says Transfirst. They were already using traditional credit card readers to process payments. They had also paid a substantial amount of money to the vendor and the bank, and they were not willing to shift over to wireless terminals so suddenly. Moreover, the general idea was to wait and watch as technology usually changed quickly. Retailers thought that wireless systems would not be useful. There was also a chance these wireless POS system would not gain popularity with customers and it would be a useless investment.

This Perception Is Not True.

Wireless systems are the next step in POS evolution. According to Mobile-Financial, more than 40 percent of small business owners have already shifted over to miniaturized credit card readers. The reasoning for this was simple. Small business owners could not afford traditional POS systems. These systems cost anywhere from $10,000 to about $15,000 or more. They could not afford to pay the rental charges for traditional credit card readers as well. As a result, they usually turned away customers who proffered credit cards. This was particularly true for business owners who did not have brick-and-mortar stores. The newer tablet-based wireless POS systems could be operated through a smartphone or a tablet and they were very easy to use. Customers could collect payments from anywhere and they have now become an accepted method of collecting payments-on-the-go from customers.

binary optionsIf you like to day trade and swing trade, then this could be a good way of organizing and indeed improving your trading results.

Short term day trades, typically lasting a few minutes or hours could benefit from being kept apart from your swing trades, which typically last for a few days. The various brokers offer binary bets that are suited to short term and longer term trades and it could be a good idea to use one broker for day trading and another for your swing trading.

Keeping Your Trades Apart

If you have short and medium term trades open at the same time in the same account they can cloud your judgement and affect your trading decisions. For instance if you have swing trades that are under water it may make you hesitant to take a day trade, even if it was well planned and fits with your strategy. Using one broker account for day trades and another for your longer term positions is a good way to keep them separate and keep your trading decisions clear and to plan.
