Risks Associated with Forex Trading

Trading foreign currencies can be a challenging and potentially profitable opportunity for investors. However, before deciding to participate in the Forex market, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose.

 

There is considerable exposure to risk in any foreign exchange transaction. Any transaction involving currencies involves risks including, but not limited to, the potential for changing political and/or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency. Investments in foreign exchange speculation may also be susceptible to sharp rises and falls as the relevant market values fluctuate. The leveraged nature of Forex trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. Not only may investors get back less than they invested, but in the case of higher risk strategies, investors may lose the entirety of their investment. It is for this reason that when speculating in such markets it is advisable to use only risk capital.

 

Risk Disclaimer

Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Past performance is not indicative of future results. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.

 

Benefits and Risks of Leverage

Leverage allows traders the ability to enter into a position worth many times the account value with a relatively small amount of money. This leverage can work with you as well as against you. Even though the Forex market offers traders the ability to use a high degree of leverage, trading with high leverage may increase the losses suffered. Please use caution when using leverage in trading or investing.

Why Do Systematic Trading Strategies Work

22 August 2017

In this article I am going to share with you 3 core reasons why systematic trading strategies work well in real-time trading and why it is worth applying this approach comparing to the discretionary trading (which could be a lot profitable as well). Many traders and investors would agree that the 3 commons traits of the successful trading be it in stocks, commodities, Forex ect.  are -  (1) Methodology, (2) Money Management  or Position Sizing and (3) Psychology. Let`s examine each of them and ponder upon how systematic approach would improve them.

Check out your Methodology Before Putting Real Money

When your rules are 100% rule-based and don’t require trader`s interpretation you could check if your desired entries and exits had been profitable in the past. The research can be done manually looking at the charts or automatically if you have programmed a strategy code for particular platform like TradeStation or Metatrader 4 for example. Look at the chart below:

auto-losing-trading-forex-system.jpg

It represents simulated trading measured in R-multiple for 16 years trading for sideways type strategy intended for spot Gold market. It is clearly a losing systematic strategy. The long-term backtesting period is enough to convince us that this is not a valid strategy and there is no chance of future gains. The consistency of down heading equity curve is unequivocal. Because we were able to check the systems beforehand we have saved a lot of real money putting them into losing endeavor.  However, the logic of system sounded pretty solid and promising initially. Without backtesting we would have put real money in the strategy and for sure losing them all in a few months.

Now let`s take a look at the following chart which is trading system designed for eur-usd:

systematic-forex-winning-trading-strategy.jpg

 

Consider its upward equity curve and how consistent it is. Again the backtesting period is 16 years and all trades are represented in R-multiple.  This is a kind of strategy to which we would put our real money. It is profitable we are confident that it will remain a winning one in the future because of the long-term backtesting period where the system has been thrown into different market phrases like big trends, quiet market and volatile sideways situations. 

So, investing some time to check out our systematic trading system gave us a big advantage over discretionary traders who cannot check if their rules are working at all, even though they may sound very logical and promising on paper.

 

Limit your MaxDD using Money Management or Position Sizing

When you know your strategy`s characteristics you will be able to apply to it the appropriate position sizing formula. Suppose your MaxDD for the backtested period is 10R and you are a very conservative trader not willing to risk more than 10% of your trading account. Knowing in advance that your biggest drop in the equity curve it will make sense choosing a risk of 1% per trade which will limit your overall risk exactly to 10% assuming of course that the future performance will be similar.

MaxDD.jpg

 

On the other hand if you are an aggressive trader with big risk tolerance of 40%, then your obvious solution would be to put 4% on the table per trade.

As you can see it is possible to choose the right money management tactic for you because you have already a strategy’s characteristics which act as a base of your decision making process.

A discretionary trader could not know in advance how many loosing trades in a row or how big the MaxDD would be. There should be a certain time of real trading passed in order be taken an appropriate calculation of those metrics and thus choose position sizing formula which is best suitable. One may end up being too conservative or too aggressive trading your non 100% rule-based system.

Risk tolerance is very important for meeting your objective first and second improving your discipline during the real time conditions when money are put on table.

 

Improved Trading Psychology and Discipline

It is much easier to trade a systematic trading system with 100% clear rules than systems with a lot of guess work every time you have to entry or exit the market. If you can just apply your strategy rigorously in real time trading with no hesitation it will be your biggest advantage psychologically speaking.

When you`ve got a signal from your algo system, it is clear and you couldn`t make yourself not seeing it and ignoring it. It is much harder not to take a system`s signals than to take them because you know you have missed obviously. When you know in advance that your strategy has a positive expectancy and you have chosen the most convenient for you MM, then your confidence is huge and thus your disciplined improves a lot. You have prepared yourself.

From personal experience I could tell you that your mood and outside influences don’t harm your trading as long as you keep your discipline ON all the time. I could remember a few instances where my condition wasn`t great because of different reasons like illness and other issues but they didn`t make me lose money on my trading. I just kept applying my systematic strategies which paid off eventually. I knew that over long run, my strategies would give me positive results and what is needed form me is to apply the rules rigorously.

If you apply a real time analyses doing your non automated trading you are prone to misjudgment and vulnerability because of you mood, your physical condition ect.  These errors could results in big loses and ruining your trading account.  The history knows a lot of examples when traders have done stupid things just because of bad mood and other outside influences.

When you have a prepared plan of action which is 100% clear and it doesn’t require interpretation in the heat of the moment, then your odds of following your strategy are much bigger.

 

Summary

Systematic trading strategies improve all core traits of successful trading. You could filter your systems by focusing only on those profitable in the past. As a second step you could limit your losses and equity`s drops by suing the most appropriated MM to your system and last but not least is improved discipline and physiological persistence  during real time trading endeavor.
