Aggressive trading psychology in Forex Market

aggressive Aggressive trading psychology in Forex Market

Each forex currency pair has their specific behavior which

differentiates itself from other currency pairs; similarly each

trader have their own different trading style and strategies.

In this article we are going to focus on aggressive traders and how

they plan their trades. We will highlight the factors that traders

who are looking to follow an aggressive trading style should


Being aggressive doesn’t mean using large stop loss or for that

matter using no stop loss. Also it doesn’t mean entering many trades

at a time and closing the ones that are in profit and let the ones

that are in negative stay open, I will term that type of trading as

reckless trading and this type of trading cannot produce profits.

Now explaining what I mean by aggressive trading; for example when we

consider retracements using fibonacci, the weaker levels generally

lay around 25% to 35% while stronger levels are generally around 50%

to 61.8% levels. What aggressive traders do is that they focus on

both levels and conservative traders wait for their opportunities

around the stronger levels.

Aggressive forex traders can either choose to enter at both levels

separately or sometimes can use strong trading levels to average out

the first trade. Since the aggressive trading requires more number of

entries therefore the margin required for trading also is reflected

in the same manner and margin requirement is on the higher side.

Similarly the risk and profit factor are on the higher side for

aggressive trading as there are instances when there are multiple

transactions open up and averaging each other.

Another thing to remember, like all other factors, one should be very

consistent in trading and should be following one consistent

strategy. As the risk and reward factor is very high, generally only

traders with large account size and reasonable experience indulge in

such trading style.

Although I do not recommend aggressive trading, traders who are into

it should manage their risk % appropriately and accept the high risk,

high reward mentality. If you think that is not for you, I would

recommend you to trade like majority of the pros do – By picking only

the best trades with price action confirmation.

This way, although we trade lesser but we have a higher winning

Forex is a psychology game, choose your path, demo it first and if it

works for you. Stick to it whole heartedly. Do not jump ship when a

new INTERESTING strategy comes along and you will be back to square

1. However if your strategy is not working for you, find out the

problem, tweak it and keep practicing it til you got it perfected.

If you still have not found success in forex, check out our AFM

winning Forex Course. It compromises of the whole system which

traders need in order to trade successfully.

See you on the other side!
