How do you make money trading Forex?

The quicker price moves on any given FX pair, the quicker traders will make money – if they get the direction right. You can buy the dips and sell the highs, or trade in the opposite direction. You can trade somewhere mid-way in a trend, over just a few minutes of the day or for several days, even weeks. It's entirely up to you. Whatever your strategy, know this: no one is right 100% of the time. There will be losses, so it's important to implement a risk strategy on a consistent basis.

How to calculate your Forex profits?

The beauty of forex trading is that quantifying profit is straightforward because expenses are limited, and gains and losses are easily accounted for.
Software suites such as Trading Station and MetaTrader 4 calculate gains and losses on a pip-by-pip basis. As the market moves, your account balance is updated automatically. You can also use our the Profit Calculator to work out your P&L. Whichever platform you use to trade with us, you can clearly see figures for trading costs and P&L.

When choosing your trade size, you can use the Pip Calculator to give you an accurate figure for how much you are prepared to risk on any given trade. It's also a good idea to know how the trade you're planning to take might affect your margin. For that, you can use our Margin Calculator. If the trade size looks too big for your available margin, you can shave a bit off and take a smaller trade.
Another useful tool is the Pivot Point Calculator. It's a simple tool that enables you to determine potential support and resistance levels and the direction of a prevailing trend. Combining this with the other tools just referred to, you quickly have an accurate picture of your potential gains and losses before you take a trade.

With FXCM, you will always know your P&L, freeing up time for active trading.
