Using forex signals as trade ideas
Even if you prefer not to follow forex tips to the letter, you can still profit from their trade idea. For example, if you receive a forex tip trading the GBP/USD long with a 40 pip stop loss, but on analysing the charts (following your attendance on a forex training course) you feel more comfortable placing the stop loss let’s say 63 pips below entry, giving the stop protection below a visible area of recent and prior support, which happens also to be below the weekly pivot point, and in doing so are happy to have a longer range target – then go right ahead and do so.

We were surprised to find that when we did exactly this with one of our forex signals’ tips our trades actually performed better than theirs did. Two heads better than one maybe. The point is though, that without the forex market forecast drawing our attention to that particular chart at that particular time we would never have seen that trade idea.
This also makes the point that while it may at first seem temping to let a signal provider trade your account for you, if you have the time you may actually prefer to control it yourself.
If you have been through a good forex training course and understand the concepts of support, resistance, pivot points, trends etc you should always use this knowledge to perform your own due diligence on forex alerts. You may well find as we did that you can enhance the overall performance of your portfolio of forex trade recommendations.
Free forex signals
This section would not be complete without mention of forex signals providers who don’t charge any subscription fee. As we mentioned above even subscription charging services should be effectively free to you by virtue of calling enough profitable trades to more than cover the subscription cost.
In addition we prefer to use subscription based forex signals as they have an incentive to consistently call profitable trades, in that their subscribers won’t stay with them for very long if they don’t.
