If you want to be successful in Forex Market, you must use all the available forex market tools. Hedge, Trail SL, StopLoss, Averaging are some most powerful tools. You can implement these tools either manually or via a Forex Robot that is an expert advisor. Before implementation you must be properly aware with each of these terms. Here I am giving a brief introduction of these terms.
Forex hedge means a transaction implemented by a forex trader to protect an existing or anticipated position from an unwanted move in currency exchange rates. Forex hedging involves buying or selling of correlating currency pairs to stay protected from fluctuating currency exchange rates.
By using a forex hedge properly, a trader who is long a currency pair can be protected from downside risk, while the trader who is short a currency pair can protect against upside risk. Hedging means you are trying to reduce trading risk.
Currency market is world’s most liquid market. In case of currency trading, which runs 24×5, ‘hedging’ is just like”armour” for your investment. While hedging, you must follow a perfect technique and well mannered strategy.
Some times hedging proves as boon for investor. Hedging in forex trading may give you excellent results and surely prevent you from any of the negative event.
What happen, if market goes to just one direction indicating a huge loss? If you do not take any action, your account may wiped out. To escape any such situation we generally use Stop Loss order. Stop Loss orders minimize the losses in case of unprofitable move in the price of security has started. In SL orders we set out a price below the current market price and the order is to sell. Whenever the price of the security reaches this level, the position will be closed automatically. For meeting of SL order provisions, the trading terminal checks short positions with ASK price, and long positions with BID price.
You can use Trail SL to automate Stop Loss order following the price.
Trailing Stop Loss:
Trailing Stop is a method to move Stop Loss level automatically. Trail Stop is an automatic tool which is useful when the security price moves strongly in the profitable direction.
Now, if you setted SL for a security and the position becomes profitable, then Stop Loss can be shifted automatically to a break even level by Trailing Stop Loss.
To set trailing SL, you have to right click on the opened position displayed in your terminal. Then under “Trailing Stop” you can select any of the valued you wanted to set as a distance between the Stop Loss level and the current price in the list opened.
As soon as profit in points becomes equal to or higher than the specified level, the order level is set at the specified distance from the current price automatically. Further, if price of the security changes in the more profitable direction, trailing stop will make the Stop Loss level follow the price automatically. I case the price turns in to an opposite direction and the profitability of the position falls, the order will not be modified anymore.
Trailing Stop Loss always works in client terminal that is if you lost internet connectivity or turns off your computer, Trail SL will not work.
In Martingale (averaging) technique, suppose you have trade long (buy) and after that exchange rate goes down, then the Martingale Technique allows to open another position in the same direction after a specific number of pips. And then exactly equal Take Profit is setted for both of the positions by considering a profit on an average.
You can make money from Forex Market, if and only if you observe and pay your attention to the market 24×5. Since it can’t be possible for any of the trader. So that in place of doing manual trading, you should use a Forex Auto Trader which trade with hedging for you. You will definitely get best results.
As the currency market always shows crazy trend, then why should we book loss today instead of booking profit tomorrow. So use hedging with averaging.
Also you should use trail SL instead of Stop loss.
There are a lot of Forex Auto Traders available in the market. You may use any of the available Forex Auto Trader according your requirement. I have tried some of them. Out of them Aeron ForexAutoTrader has all the requisite features as I explained above in this article, for a successful Forex trading.
