The way to make money in forex trading is:
Use low leverage and stops outside of normal volatility - NOT high leverage and stops within normal volatility.
In forex trading seeing the longer term trends on a forex chart is easy - making money from them is anything but. The correct execution of trading signals, in line with the odds and placing of sensible stops is what separates the winners who pile up big profits from the rest.
Forex trading is high risk / high reward - the bigger the risk the bigger the reward - period. You need to be aware that you need to manage risk and build your own set of rules within your forex trading system to combat it.
