How to make money in the trading market?

Surely you have heard about the 80/20 principle, the trading market is no exception. The banks' traders account for only about 5% of the total market volume of traders, but the trading volume they hold is up to 92%. So if you do not know how they are trading, it is very difficult for you to make a steady profit.

Most of the time they are simply performing transactions for bank customers. It is commonly known as "clearing the flow". They can make a few thousand transactions a day, but none of them belong to the bank.


So how do these banks trade?

They only make 2 to 3 trades per week on their account. These Traders are the ones who are assessed at the end of the year to determine if they deserve the bonuses.


So you can not see Trader banks sitting all day doing scalping commands to make profits. Instead, their approach is extremely methodical, they only make a decision to enter when everything is in orbit (i.e. both in terms of technical and fundamental analysis). That's what you need to know!

Technical analysis is relatively simple but often gets "stunned" when looking at the charts of customers who come to us for the first time. They often stick to their charts all kinds of indicators, these indicators not only have a lag of 3-4 hours but even conflict with each other. Trading with these indicators is often the fastest way to blow your account away.


Chart of bank customers

The chart of banks Trader is not like that, in fact, is completely opposite. All they want to know are the market prices. Don't forget that these indicators are intended to predict where the price will go.

Bank traders are the market. If you really understand how they trade, you don't need any more indicators! They make entry decisions based on price resistance and changing economic data. Understanding their technical analysis is the first step towards becoming a good trader, and you will go with the market, not against it.

In short, it is simply resistance and support. There are no other messy things in their decision-making.

Simple trendlines show you support and resistance levels; Their entry points are another story.

How to make a profit?

Another important aspect contributing to their transaction decision-making is the underlying economic data - it covers three main areas, and that is why it is sometimes difficult to determine the direction of the market.

For example, when the political situation contradicts the central bank's statements about money, it is the disconnect. But when there are no political problems, and central-bank policies match the situation of the economy, that's when a pure monetary trend emerges. This is what the bank traders wait for.

The aspect of basic economic data is complex, and understanding it can take years. If you understand it, those are really solid foundations in helping you determine the direction of the market.

You can make a lot of money trading according to the released economic data. And the key to this is in two parts. First, you must understand the basic economic data and how it affects the market. Second, you must know how to handle your trading correctly and without hesitation. If you can control this aspect of trading, you will be very confident in trading even large amounts of capital.

Remember, economic data are really the driving forces behind the currencies. By keeping track of the economic data that are released and trading against them, you are not only keeping track of central bank policy issues but also building your own capital.
