One of the problems of the newbie Forex traders is that they are often very disappointed between themselves since most of the time they lose money in forex trading. Most of the time they forgot one essential fundamental rule of Forex trading. In Forex, everyone loses, even the masters you are following to trade often have consecutive losses in the market. Losing is okay if you follow your own rules. This is the process of trial and error and you will catch the market of Forex through this system. But if you are losing continuously, do not simply quit Forex trading. You may have a potential career for you that you don’t know it yet.

The short timeframe cannot give you an overall idea of what is happening in the market.
Create a new demo account if it is messy: If your demo account is too much messy for you to trade, maybe you should open a new account. Demo account does not cost you extra to open another and yet they provide you the opportunity to trade the Forex with a live signal. Do not trade in a messy account. It is better to open a fresh account and give a new start. Try create a decent portfolio in your demo trading account.
Monitor your trading performance: Always monitor your trading performance. Log a chart how many trades you are winning and how many you have lost. It will help you to decide your trading future in Forex.
