Trading Strategies for Beginners

by Andrew R. Researcher

There is a common misconception among the majority that if you invest this amount, you will get that amount from your investment within a few days easily. Hence, most of them fall for such offer because who would want to miss it, right? In regard to trading, you can generate a significant amount for which you need to learn more about trading before pouring money blindly. It is imperative to know that in order to trade like a pro, you need to be aware of the strategies that will allow you to jump into the ‘invest less and earn more’ lope.

Here are some of the successful strategies that you might want to adopt to generate more from your investment in trading.

1.     Set Fund Limit

Before you invest your money in trading, you must know that trading to some point is considered as like ‘gambling,’ even though the risk is way lower than the traditional gambling. Although this is not pure gambling, their risk is there which needs to be taken into account before trading money. Experts suggest that as a beginner in the trading world, it is wise to keep some of the money (that you have decided to invest) aside in order to avoid any kind of ‘lost in the category’ situation. 

If you look at successful traders, they take less than 1 or 2% of their account per trade which sets kind of limit for each trade, for instance, you have a $20,000 trading account and are willing to risk 0.2% of your capital on each trade, your maximum loss per transaction is 0.2% * $20,000=  $400. However, this varies and depends on the overall condition of the trading market.

2.     Allocate Time

If you are more into 'day trading,' you need to spend some time from your work. Day trading, in general, requires most of the day time; hence, it barricades one from doing something during the day time. Considering the nature of this trading system, it is better not to engage yourself if you have a very limited in your hand. To understand day trading, it refers to the process that requires a trader to track the markets and spot opportunities, which can arise at any time during trading hours.

3.     Slow and Steady

Earning extra money sometimes becomes overwhelming; hence, many lose control in tracking the amount they investing or going to invest. Eventually, this led one to get stuck in an unwanted circumstance. If you are a beginner or new to this trading, you must not take the risk of investing all of your accounts at once; instead, start small and slow so that gradually you can read the trading trend accurately. Besides, most of the stakeholders are now offering fractional share that allows traders to buy specific and small amount as per their preference. For instance, if Microsoft is trading at $300, you want to purchase shares worth $70, even though brokers would suggest you to go for the two-fifth of the claim. Otherwise, you will start losing money instead of earning. So, exploit the opportunity of investing a small amount at the beginning of your trading.
