A real mentor will help you understand what is really going on in the Forex or Cryptocurrency markets so you can profit. If your teacher does not help you they are not doing their job. No one can teach you to become a 100% winning trader all of the time, that is not what trading is. That is a fantasy world. What you need is for someone to help you understand how the big players operate and what you need to do to prosper in that environment.
Mentorship isn’t just a one-way street. You, as the student, stand to gain knowledge and wisdom under a mentor. But what’s in it for him if he decides to put in the time and effort to teach you? For many, it’s the joy of seeing a student grow, and I think many share DoubleEcho’s sentiment that a good mentor would only invest their limited time and resources into a noob who shows the potential for success and that they would work very hard for it.
Forex strategies that are traded based on strict mathematical rules with no ambiguous conditions and no important trading decisions to be made by the trader are called mechanical. A good example of a mechanical system is a moving average cross strategy, where MA periods are given and positions are entered and exited exactly at the point of cross. When working with mechanical trading strategy, it is easy to backtest one and determine its profitability. You can also automate such system via MetaTrader expert advisors or any other trading software. The usual drawback of such strategies is their lack of flexibility before the fundamental changes in the market behavior. Mechanical strategies are a good choice for traders knowledgeable in trading automation and backtesting.
Fundamental Forex strategies are strategies based on purely fundamental factors that stand behind the bought and sold currencies. Various fundamental indicators, such as interest rates and macroeconomic statistics, affect the behavior of the Forex market. These strategies are quite popular and will benefit long-term traders that prefer fundamental data analysis over technical factors:
Arbitrage is based on the premise of the forex trader trying to make a gain from small differences (of the currency) that exist either in the same or different markets. This is primarily a form of speculation. Identifying the right conditions and employing this strategy is not an easy task. Arbitrage strategy best market participants who have best technology systems and have quickest access to information. Arbitrage is best employed when the same currency has two different prices.
