Many people became traders in the past couple of years, and it’s still a hot topic among everyone. We certainly don’t like things even though we’re on the market for the past year or more. The newbies won’t like it as well, but it is what it is. You have to go through the process to have a successful trading experience, so it’s better to know what you are dealing with at the very beginning. Here are entirely usual, but still annoying things we have to deal with about Forex.
These emails are necessarily from fake companies, but as soon as you start exploring a bit more about companies, they will show up. Many people are confused by them because they usually haven’t registered – they were looking around. The thing is, every website has “cookies”. You’ve heard about them a million times before, but here’s what they do; when you get onto specific website cookies, collect data that you’ve left online. It is most commonly your first name, last name, address and phone number. This isn’t something they dig out if you have an email, then this information is available everywhere, it’s only a question whether cookies pick it up or not (did you agree, without checking out first). This is one way big companies earn money, and although it is unfair, they told us when we were opening our email, or any other account third-parties might be involved. That’s how these companies get in touch with you. It’s not illegal, but it isn’t very pleasant.
Another thing that surpasses hate towards spam mail is constant calls. We explained above how brokerages get your number, and they see you as a potential client as soon as you get on their website. They usually try to get in touch with you before another company does, because they know you were researching and they might not be your number one choice. They are calling you because having another client is always a plus, but remember, it’s your own choice whether you want to open an account with them or not. Many people who are simply interested in Forex don’t understand that these people didn’t steal your information; they are calling you because they know you were on their website. Hence you are interested, and lastly, it’s their job to call you. We understand the frustration, but this is what they do, and you can choose whether you want to be removed from their list, think about it a bit more, and research before deciding to work with them or any other company. It is not an obligation to invest as soon as you start researching Forex and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. “Now is the right chance”. It might be, but is it the right time for you? After all, the market is volatile, and there are always opportunities to earn.
You will often hear forex trading is not for everyone, and there is a good reason why. Some traders can learn over time patience is the key to successful trading, but others might not. Your spending personality and how you manage your finances can heavily influence your trading strategy and how much you invest. Once you get a broker (which is necessary when you get into Forex), an expert will explain to you that you should start slow, take your time to research and see how much you can invest without damaging your day-to-day routine and expenses. That’s why the process (that happens every day), can be nerve-wracking – volatility. If you are trading long-term, then you might experience it less. Whatever the case is, it cannot be something that won’t phase you at all. It is a constant temptation to buy or sell something, even if your logic tells you it’s not the time, or you are acting out of impulse. That is what everyone hates – an everyday battle with yourself because you know impulsivity won’t get you far in Forex.
