Asia wakes up during evening time in US. Volatility of the market is not very high at this time period. Biggest European and American financial institutions are closed. Therefore the volume is not very high. There is very little price movement. However some important news from Japan can disturb the market and create volatility. You can do scalping trades during this period. However in my opinion it’s not worth it. So if you have any open position make sure you placed stop loss order and go do something else besides trading in Forex. The next two hours 11 pm -1 am (EST) are market’s slower time period. Traders in Asia are ready to go home. Probably the best choice to trade during this time would be any currency pair that has Japanese Yen in it, for example GBP/JPY or EUR/JPY. After Asian session comes one of the important session in Forex market.

Sometimes signals are distributed with desktop software which notifies you instantly. Others are organized as private chat rooms where members can not only get trading signals but also communicate with the main trader and the other users of the signals. Some signal providers will propose you a stop loss and will send you exit alerts. Others will suggest you only the entry point and let you decide when to exit the position yourself. That’s why trading forex by signals requires at least basic understanding of how forex works, what is a stop loss, limit and lot size. The costs of forex signals vary, but generally they will be in the range of $50 – $300 monthly. Some companies will give you good discounts if you subscribe for 3, 6 or 12 months. There are also free signals offered, but usually you get what you pay for. Trading by good signals drastically increases your chances to make profits long term. But forex trading is a very risky investment and you can still lose a lot of the money. One thing that you should consider is that your expected trading profits should be large enough to cover the signals provider fee and bring some revenue to yourself. You will need to decide on a proper size of your investment in order to achieve that. Another problem is that many signals companies publish fake results of their trading in order to get more subscribers. You should carefully investigate the signals company before paying for their service.
Therefore, that makes it 100x leverage. Simple! Leveraging varies from broker to broker. Some allow as little as 50x leverage, while others allow as much as 800x leverage. While the leverage can earn astounding amounts of money, you can also lose just as much if you become too greedy. When first starting out with Forex online, it’s important to choose a broker that allows ‘Options trading’ (this will be explained later). In terms of leverage, choose a broker that allows 50x to 100x leverage, which is enough in my opinion. 200x leverage is pushing it but you can choose it if you’re happy with risking that much of your capital but I don’t recommend any higher. The reason why many people choose more than 200x leverage is because they are specifically day-trading. This is where they watch chart movements every single second and buy/sell every few minutes. That’s not my style, I’m more of a mid-to-long term trader than a short term day-trader.
