How Do You Make Money With Forex Trading?

The international currency trade furnishes participants with an unparalleled collection of opportunities. Given the depth and liquidity of the forex, it is possible to implement almost any viable strategy with maximum efficiency. From short-term intraday approaches to multi-session swing trading plans, profiting from periodic exchange rate fluctuations can become not only possible but probable.

Perhaps the single most beneficial attribute of the forex is flexibility. Unlike in more conventional trading modules such as stocks, forex trading profits are not limited only to buying low and selling high. You are able to make money from being either long or short a specific market, increasing the number of potential trading opportunities exponentially.

Whether your outlook on a currency is bullish or bearish, you have the ability to capitalise upon the idea. Buy low and sell high or sell high and buy low ― the forex does not limit your trading options or your money-making potential.

Please note there is no guarantee that trading will result in profits or not result in losses.

How to calculate your Forex Profit?

As it pertains to any business ― active trading or otherwise ― profit is the difference between gains and losses minus operating expenses. The beauty of forex trading is that quantifying profit is straightforward because expenses are limited, and gains and losses are easily accounted for.

The best way to manage profit is through regularly referencing your trading platform. Software suites such as Trading Station, Metatrader 4, ZuluTrade and NinjaTrader calculate gains and losses on a pip-by-pip basis. As the market moves, your account balance is updated automatically via the functionality of your platform. Factoring in expenses is also a routine task given HBL’s low spreads and Active Trader’s pricing structures.

At the end of the day, making money is the goal of any trader. With HBL, you will always know your P&L, freeing up time for active trading.
If you are an active forex trader, then producing positive returns is your job. Fortunately, figuring P&L doesn’t have to be an exhaustive task. All you need is your account currency, pair, trade size and opening/closing prices—the Profit Calculator does the rest.

When it comes to risk management in forex trading, it’s all about pip value. Knowing how much your trade’s pips are worth is key to not overextending your account. The Pip Calculator can help you do just that, automatically. In addition, it is always a good idea to know where your account stands in relation to utilised margin and brokerage requirements. While doing math longhand is a challenge, the Margin Calculator makes short work of even the most intricate positions.

One of the greatest advantages to trading forex in the modern era is access to technology that aids in the application of indicators such as Pivot Points. Pivot points are a go-to technical tool for traders interested in building unique support and resistance levels to use for market entry or exit. Whether you practice a Classic, Woodie’s, Demark’s, or Camarilla methodology, the Pivot Point Calculator can quickly generate a set of practical values.

How much money do you need to Get Started?

One of the largest advantages to trading forex is the minimal amount of capital necessary to get started. Retail traders with limited resources are afforded access to the same markets as institutional participants.

Conventional financial wisdom suggests that it takes a lot of money to participate in the markets. That is the beauty of the forex – you don’t need to be a millionaire to trade. Utilize the potential of your risk capital.

Of course, as you gain experience in the markets, your goals and resources will often change. In order to cater to the needs of the evolving trader, HBL offers a variety of account types.
