What is a major plus of trading? That there are a lot of assets and at least three major markets to choose out from. That means that you do not have to stick to the one and only asset. And that means that by following major news outlets you can stay away from the assets which are facing news report.

I would say that within the scopes of a week of any major report any currency is experiencing turbulence. And that means that we can face a lot of losses at this very period of time. And in order to avoid them we have to carefully search for those assets facing reports and drop their trading within a week of said reports.

Although it might be harder done than said, trust me – you are going to want to follow this rule without ever stepping away from it.


2. Avoid known-for-losses assets.


There are assets which can grow and then lose price unexpectedly. And it is quite often that we put our faith in them again and again only to be shunned. We trust that this time is going to be successful for us. And that we are not going to see losses this time. But how often does this work for us. Next to never, right?

Of course you can trust your signals provider and catch a few pips here and there with these unlucky assets, but isn’t it better to bet on the right signal and go for big wins instead of smaller and less important bets?

Avoid losing assets and only pay attention to sure-to-win trades. Bet on the right horse, so to speak.


3. When you think you can lose, never ignore the stop loss.
