In reality, there is basically no foreign exchange broker in the market that has an advantage in any aspect, such as the trading environment and customer satisfaction. Therefore, in the impression of most people, large foreign exchange brokers are better than small foreign exchange brokers, because large brokers have more advantages, such as strong financial strength, better liquidity, and higher security. From the user's point of view, the core competitiveness of the foreign exchange platform is safety and stability, trustworthiness and strict supervision are the foundation of a broker. The Tokenist, a well-known financial industry consulting media platform, selects the best foreign exchange brokers in the world every year.

Can you share your entry experience or trading experience?

tsing yi swordsman
If you want to talk about the experience of entering the industry, would you believe me if I said that I was tricked into it by a friend? Back then, I was also an honest and responsible person in a professional class. My friend said, come on, do finance with me. There is a lot of money in this industry, and it depends on whether you have the ability to earn it. So I thought, no matter what I do, it’s not bad, what’s the big deal, fuck him!! So I entered this industry that is as deep as the sea. I have been in this industry for more than ten years, and the journey has been bumpy, bumpy, and bumpy. Fortunately, buddy, I have survived until now. As for trading experience, from personal experience, the most important thing is not the trading system, but the execution ability. Of course, some people say trading philosophy, trading risk control and so on. But I personally feel that these things are included in the trading system. To measure the quality of a trading system, that is whether it can make stable profits. But we must know that no matter how good the trading system is, no matter how bad the trading strategy is, it must be put into the market in the end, otherwise it will be a decoration, which will not produce any economic benefits. As long as your trading system is going to be put into actual market combat, most of the final executors may be humans, and a small number of people will write the mature trading system as EA, perform mechanized operations, and strive to make money like fools. As long as people are operating, the final decision is execution. My trading experience is whether the execution can be done well. In many cases, the weakness of human nature will become a fetter in the transaction process, such as people's pursuit of advantages and avoiding disadvantages, such as fear and greed, etc. If the execution is not in place, how to overcome these weaknesses of human nature? How can we implement strict entry and exit rules if we can't customer service the weakness of human nature? Without strict entry and exit rules, how can you make big profits, small losses and stable profits? For example, after someone makes an order, he sets a stop loss. When the floating loss is about to reach the stop loss position, he always fantasizes that his direction is correct, so he adjusts the stop loss position again and again, and finally reaches nowhere. adjusted. This is a typical manifestation of poor execution. Obviously he was wrong, but he still refused to admit his mistake. Therefore, in the foreign exchange market, without strict execution, everything is floating clouds.

Why is it so hard for an analyst to be the best trader?

connotation jokes tv
An analyst is someone who lives in the past, a trader is someone who looks ahead. In fact, analysts and traders are two different professions, and it is not straightforward to say who is good and who is bad. There's no need to even compare. Many people have a bad impression of analysts, thinking that they are a bunch of scammers. Because what we often see is that an analyst has a vernacular meal and then gives operational suggestions. If he is right, he is awesome, but if he is wrong, he will sell it. Or in order to promote himself, an analyst sent screenshots, all of which were floating win orders, or the net worth had doubled, and various tricks to attract people. There is also a kind of analyst who is invincible. From the fundamental analysis, it is that foreign countries are relatively chaotic and intrigue all day long. From the technical analysis, the dead cross of the moving average, the deviation of macd, the Fibonacci callback to the best ratio, etc., are both long and short. Contradictions, still biting the bullet and giving advice on selling high and buying low. The most awesome one is the kind that can’t be understood after a high-level theory, or it’s a new indicator that I don’t know where, or it’s a technical jargon that makes people confused. The above mentioned are actually called analysts, but they are not analysts at all. What is an analyst? First of all, you must have a good economic foundation, which is what we call academics. Some people don’t even know what the trade surplus and deficit mean, but they still talk about fundamentals. In fact, the main job of an analyst is To sum up the history, that is to say, the analyst can use the data to conclude that your operation method in the past was wrong, but they cannot find out the right one. Therefore, for those who make a profit in trading, you know that this is wrong, and at most they tell you that it is wrong. It can be done, but what is right, the analyst cannot do. But the work of analysts cannot be denied, because there are still references. What a trader is, that is, you need to place an order when you are short, and you must be able to handle the order when you hold a position. These are not the job of analysts. The only thing that can be determined on the disk is uncertainty. We don't know whether k will go up or down first, we only know that it will go to the right, so it is what traders should do to deal with transactions. Are you satisfied with this answer?

How many people like Ma Baoguo are there in the trading circle?

oneforex
I have been in the foreign exchange circle for more than ten years, and I have seen too much. In fact, people like Ma Baoguo exist in any industry. As the saying goes: Xixi murmurs for profit, and such behavior is understandable. But the reason why the old horse is cast aside by everyone is mainly because of his ugly eating. The foreign exchange circle is even more of a vanity fair. I remember that when I first entered the industry, my seniors reminded me: There are too many bluffing people in this industry! I worked as an account manager many years ago, let me tell you about a wonderful person I met. I once met someone in Nanjing who claimed to have a trading system in his hand, which could trade all varieties in the world, as long as it was a K-line chart, and it included making money. As soon as you hear this kind of slogan, you know it is a quack doctor, but there are still some people who are willing to believe it. At that time, this person rented a hotel in Nanjing for office use. He showed me videos of various servers, delivery orders, etc., and originally wanted to develop My agent, but after chatting with him, I found out that he wanted to develop my clients to go to him. At that time, I felt that this brother's morals were really high. As an account manager, I cannot actually introduce these third-party traders to clients. After all, I still have professional ethics. But I was too curious, so I asked, can you talk about the specific transaction model and technical aspects. Then I talked to me for a long time, only talking about how to make money, how high-end the server is, and how powerful I am, but I didn't get to the point. Finally, I came to a sentence: young people, at most two years, I will go to the US NASDAQ for listing! Hearing this, the only thing I thought about was to leave as soon as possible, and don't lock me up in a pyramid scheme. I pretended to admire him, and told him that I would introduce him to the client when I got back, and contact him later! Afterwards, obviously, he never contacted him again. For about two months, his WeChat circle of friends has not been updated! Such a person, compared to Ma Baoguo, I think, should be even worse! There is another saying in the foreign exchange circle that there are too many fools and not enough liars. Because even if your methods are clumsy, you are still willing to choose to believe in the face of leeks who want to get rich overnight. There are many such people above, and what is certain is that there will be endless ones in the future. The leeks who are willing to believe will still hit the muzzle of the gun, the kind that will not look back after being bleeding. So, we can't change anything! For the foreign exchange industry, the only thing we can do is to be ourselves and do things with conscience!

Have you ever experienced a butcher plate?

lingling paint
I have never experienced pig killing, I have never made a deal, and naturally I have never been killed. If I want to kill you, I have no chance to kill you. I’ve heard of killing pigs. Retail investors are easy to be killed. It’s nothing more than a lack of deep understanding of the industry. If you have a comprehensive understanding, would you still do it? I am that type of person, and I have not used my own funds so far. The reason for trading is because I know that this industry is very deep, and I will not enter the market before there is any skyrocketing. Think about it, Lehman Brothers, the products sold are all Lehman and other banks and insurance companies. Companies that make single guarantees, now say they go bankrupt, they go bankrupt, and investors are in vain. If you do foreign exchange, you have no guarantee, and you dare to do it? That's not a lack of knowledge. What is that? Let me talk about the pig killing dish I mentioned earlier. There are some fake platforms, they can completely artificially control MT4, deliberately widen the spread and cause investors to lose their positions. I have clients who have made money and have opened such platforms. Some of these platforms are easy to reveal flaws, and some are difficult to distinguish. You After registering, you must first taste the sweetness and make money. At this time, there may be salesmen who know your financial situation privately, and they will put a long line to catch big fish. After you make money, you may also try to withdraw cash, and they will allow you to withdraw cash smoothly. At this time, you find that it is easy to make money, and you will be stunned. Borrow a large amount of money to recharge to the platform. At this time, they will adjust your Buying and selling prices, they will induce you to increase leverage, you increase leverage by 10 times, dreaming of getting rich overnight, and then they artificially create huge price fluctuations in the early morning by manipulating prices, only 11% price fluctuations are enough Eat all your principal, and when you wake up the next day, you will find that you have lost everything, and the money you recharged will never come back. Even if you are lucky, how does the banker adjust the transaction price? There is still no way to hack your money through the transaction, so that the amount in your account will become larger and larger. You failed to withdraw cash, because they were not prepared to let you take away the real money. You go to the police and find that you don’t know where the other party is at all, and you can’t find the specific personnel, because the people who operate these are just points set up by several domestic fraud provinces in Southeast Asia, the Philippines, Myanmar or Cambodia. It's just a registration record. Of course, if this gang is unlucky and cheats a second-generation official, it will also solve your case by the way, but they have already spent all your money.
