How They Earn a Living

The traditional definition of a forex broker is one who puts buyers and sellers together for a commission or fee. Many forex brokers make their money by charging you a spread, the difference between the buying and selling prices for a currency pair.

Spreads greatly impact your forex returns and vary depending on the type of account you open. As buying low and transacting high is the trader’s goal, a wider spread means you have to pay more when you buy and wind up with less when you sell. In some cases, your broker gets the difference, which is added onto the price of the trade. Spreads often narrow or widen depending on market liquidity and other factors.

Pips (Percentage in Points) are the smallest price unit of a forex currency, which is quoted to the fourth decimal point. Spreads, one of the primary costs of your forex trading, are measured in pips and the slightest variances can make a big difference.
I have worked with many different types of forex brokers and have witnessed the haphazard ways in which clients’ investments were distributed. In many cases, the trading transaction would go into a ‘bucket’, and never actually execute. My heart would go out to the scores of clients who had quit their day jobs, anticipating income from trading forex, only to learn their profits had disappeared due to some alleged violation. In reality, there was no profit to deliver since the buy/sell trade never happened and the broker had to come up with an excuse. These types of brokers operate in what’s commonly known in the forex industry as a “bucket shop.”

From Electronic Communication Networks (ECNs) to retail forex companies, the type of forex broker chosen is a factor in the timeliness and return on your investment. ECNs do not trade against you and act as an Interbank broker in the free market by connecting the major banks and brokerages with individual forex traders. The spreads may be smaller but you know upfront what you’re paying for the service – either a flat fee or commission.

Retail forex companies are glorified bucket shops and are often referred to as market makers, since they essentially create their own trading markets. Spreads are arbitrarily decided, trades are made against you, and profits are distributed at the broker’s discretion. Retail forex companies are attractive to newcomers and those short on cash because they don’t require large investments. If you don’t mind running the risk of having your profits disappear on a whim, then retail forex companies are a good place to learn the ins and outs of forex trading. They allow you to demo trade on their platforms until you know what you’re doing and give you unusually high leverage.

Of the two types of brokers, a forex ECN broker is the more legitimate. They provide a place where banks, traders, and multiple market makers can enter competing bids and offers around the spread amount. Unlike a dealing desk, bank quotes are consolidated and orders are matched to the best bid/offer price on which traders are permitted to trade. Although minimum trade requirements are often higher and leverage is lower, prices are not manipulated, profits can be more stable, and trades are passed to a real trader, the Interbank.

When honestly executed, forex spreads can be a valid indicator of what’s happening with your trade. After years of mistakes and believing everything I was told, I now know to look for the red flags, such as reverse pips, rejected transactions, tight spreads, and delayed executions. These are common strategies used to deceive many forex traders.

An Introduction To Forex Scalping

Scalping for quick small profits is a very popular Foreign Currency (Forex) trading strategy, requiring extreme discipline and focus. True Forex scalpers make between 10 and 100 trades per day. If a position goes against them they exit quickly rather than holding on and hoping that it will turn around. A Forex scalping system aims to make 5-15 pips per trade.
The goal of a Forex scalper is to buy or short a pair of currency at the bid or ask price and then sell quickly when the trade is in profit by a few pips. Using this trading strategy of taking a few pips out of the Forex market at a time, can easily compound into large gains as long as a strict exit strategy is used to prevent losing trades absorbing all profits.

Generally Forex scalpers use the 1 min, 5 min and hourly charts to find trades that can make them a small profit. As the Forex scalper is only interested in making a few pips per trade it is essential to use a broker with low spreads and instant execution of trades.
A few things that can improve your chances of being successful as a Forex scalper are:

- Make sure you know when news relevant to your currency pair is coming out.
- Write down the previous days Open, High, Low and Close.
- Learn some basic candlestick patterns so you can identify them when they occur.
- Draw in major trendlines and pivot points on the daily and hourly charts of your currency.
- Determine the major direction for the day, Bullish or Bearish, trading in the longer term direction will gives trades more chance of being successful.
- Adjust your stop when you are 10 pips in profit.
- If the trade is taking to long to go in your direction or you don’t feel comfortable with it, get out.
One advantage of Forex scalping is that the small targets of 5-15 pips are easier to achieve.

One of the frustrations Forex traders have is when the trend reverses during a trade, because Forex scalper’s get in and out of the market quickly this is less likely to happen. Many people have been successful with Forex scalping, so there is proof that it can be a profitable Forex trading method. A disadvantage is that the risk to reward ratio can be very low. As the profit per trade is so low, one bad trade can wipe out all the profits for a day. This means it is especially important to set and move a stop loss.

There are a couple of traps that new Forex traders fall into when they begin Forex scalping. They may become addicted to making random profits, especially if they are immediately successful. This can lead to the trader taking more risky trades and not sticking to their plan. A second trap is trying to make up for the losses of yesterday. New traders often think about how they can win back the money they lost a previous day, this tends to cloud their judgment and can lead to emotional trades that are doomed for failure.
