Hello Friends, here I am up with a very important factor in Forex trading i.e. Volumes.
Role of Volumes in Trading and Investing

First of all let us understand what are Volumes.
Volume is simply the number of lots traded during a specified time frame (e.g., hour, day, week, month, etc). The analysis of volume is a basic yet very important element of technical analysis. Volume provides clues as to the intensity of a given price move.
There are many ways to interpret changes in volume trends.
One common belief is that rising prices coupled with increased volume, and falling prices coupled with decreased volume, is bullish.
* *Conversely, if volume increases when prices fall and volume decreases when prices rise, the market is showing signs of underlying weakness.
—The theory behind this is straight forward. Rising prices coupled with increased volume signifies increased upside participation (more buyers) that should lead to a continued move. Conversely, falling prices coupled with increased volume (more sellers) signifies decreased upside participation

I thought to write this article with a general misconception about forex trading people have in humorous way while comparing unrelated businesses Cab driving and Financial Investments . It is reference to normal people who want to invest their money and want to hire traders to grow their account exponentially. Although it is directed towards investors but other traders can also take some hint from it.
Traders are entrepreneurs and they will need investors. And it is often said Entrepreneurs are from Mars and Investors are from Venus. But in case of trading I found it even worst and it can only sorted if both the parties are in right mindset about each other expectations and expectancy(returns) of traders systems.
All through time, people have basically acted and reacted the same way in the market as a result of: greed, fear, ignorance, and hope. That is why the numerical formations and patterns recur on a constant basis. – Jesse Livermore

I think the least understood of the above statement is about ignorance. Newbie Investors have almost zero knowledge in financial markets. Trading is specialized knowledge based profession. I believe experienced traders understand: My focus is o

The Dukascopy Strategy Contest is definitely one of the most challenging contest in the contest group. In this contest, a contestant is expected to create a strategy that would trade the Forex market profitably, with a lot of emphasis on high profitability and low account drawdown. This means a contestant is expected to maximize profit, while employing as little risk s possible.
I have participated in the Strategy contest since June 2013, and I am happy to say I have been able to win $1,500 in cash prizes. These were gotten in the months of June and October 2014.
One of the things the Strategy contest tries to do is force a trader to gauge his or her risk exposure. A contestant gets more points if he or she has a lower drawdown during the contest month, while huge drawdowns are rewarded with less points.
An example of this occurred in the month of May 2015.
The trader Cocciolla finished with the third largest balance of 428.10k, yet he ended the month at the 8th place simply because he had a drawdown of 56% during the contest month.
A trader is basically a risk manager. This is because even though his or her job is to find and execute profitable transactions; trading has to be don…

With the plethora of advertising about Forex Trading chances are,
you have tried your hand at a demo account by now. Odds are you have made a
handsome profit, jumped onto the bandwagon of “Forex Trader”.
improbable overnight Millionaire Dream
leads many to an addiction to Forex Trading.
 How is your first Real(Live) money account doing today? 
In my
99.99% amateur forex
traders lose money on their first,second 
& third deposit.By this time
majority will quit forex trading, their pockets can't sustain further
drawdowns.1% will double
or triple their deposit and look to Revenge Trade, use excessive leverage
and be washed out for the final time with a bad taste in their mouths.
A lot of Forex Internet wisdom centres around:
your Trade, Trade your Plan." Wise advice.
1- How do
I make a "PLAN"?
2- How do
I know its the right "PLAN"?
I have never received a straight forward answer to these questions.
Think about it, these question are not complete.(Different people
different lives)
This article will try to guide you to the start of your plan and
push you to ask the correct/complete questions.
The Holy Grail is:

Yes, the problem lies in asking the questions. I think you should continue with kind of articles and do a series with more questions. I am sure you have a lot to share from your experience.

@OneGoodTrade, doctoryby: Thanks. I would share a lot more, continue the series to the end point(which is changing mindset into an analytical machine). Wont do much good here though where the newbie readers are interested only in being spoon fed. I wouldn't even care about "article contest" as long as a few people were interested. May post it somewhere else though. Cheers
