Zipsignals - Automated Forex Trading Signals
The foreign exchange, or Forex, market is one of the largest and most liquid financial markets in the world. Each day over 3 trillion dollars are exchanged and this volume is growing each year. As the individual investor finds the US stock markets less than ideal for consistent returns, interest in Forex will continue to rise. Also, it is considerably harder for a group to manipulate this market due to its size and liquidity.
So, we know the Forex market is where it's at for the individual investor. This is also evident when looking at key word searches in Google as searches on Forex related content is up around 50% from previous years. How can the average individual investor earn consistent returns from investment in this market without losing it all? There are many methodologies out there on this very question but essentially there are three ways.
- Learn the Forex market and become a trader
- Purchase a trading "robot" that executes trades for you
- Let someone else trade for you
Learning Forex is deceivingly simple as the number of symbols is tiny compared to other markets. This method requires a lot of time and still there are no guarantees that consistent returns are achievable based on the trading system you use. At the very least there will be a considerable time gap between first learning about Forex and earning a return on investment.
Trading robots or "expert advisors" are programs that use technical data to determine when, what and how much to trade. There is no trader present in this scenario, only the program that is making the decisions. The primary limitation of this software is the lack of fundamental data consideration. These programs can be disastrous to your investment capital.
Letting an experienced trader handle your trading for you is a safe and effective method for managing your capital, as long as the trader is reputable and has a proven track record of success. The best method to acquire this is through transparent trading history preferably from an unbiased third-party. There are three primary ways to let a trader control your account.
- Open a managed account under the trader
- Open a brokerage account that allows auto-trading
- Subscribe to trading signals to execute in your account
Managed accounts work by opening an account and signing a power of attorney to allow the trader to execute trades in your account. The trader takes a certain percentage of your returns and usually charges a maintenance fee based on your account balance. While you do have access to your account it may be difficult to stop trading or remove funds based on your agreement with the trader. Also, most managed accounts require large deposits sometimes in excess of $100,000.
Auto trading with a specific broker requires you to open a new account and set the trader as an introducing broker. This means that the trader gets a commission on every trade that is executed. The hooks are in-place so that when a trader opens a trade it is executed in your account, but the problem with this method is the trader is rewarded for the amount of trades they issue not the quality of those trades.
When you subscribe to trading signals, usually with a fixed monthly fee, you get information on what trades to take in your own account. This is a great way to trade your account with a professional while maintaining control of your account. The only limitation is you must be available to enter the trade, preferably immediately, including while you're sleeping, working or otherwise indisposed. Entering a trade just minutes later can have a dramatic negative impact on your returns.
