How to Be a Part-Time Day Trader - The Balance
Hi Nial, what I can say is that you do a great job, I already started to complete my currency list, as before I was watching more than 75 at a time (stupid, for a beginner). Thank you for the great info!
How to become a successful part-time forex trader
A commodity currency is a name given to currencies of countries which depend heavily on the export of certain raw materials for income. The major currencies that are also considered “commodity currencies” are the Australian dollar, Canadian dollar, and New Zealand dollar.

Let’s start with the “why”. This one is easy. There are literally so many advantages to part-time trading it’s almost funny. I have written about topics such as 8775 less is more 8776 in trading and low-frequency trading as well as a set and forget trading approach , and all the advantages of this way of trading.
Part-time traders don t trade all day, but they do trade regularly. Casual traders may trade for several days and then take several days off. These periods of activity followed by inactivity leave you less sharp, slow your reaction times and make you more susceptible to mistakes.
The “exotics” are those pairs that consist of developing and emerging economies rather than developed and already industrialized economies like the majors. Here is a list of some of the more commonly traded exotics:
I’m new to your site and info. And working full time, trading successfully has been an issue. So I enjoyed your article on trading for full timers, and I’ll take your advice.
If trading the EUR/USD or the GBP/USD, recommended pairs for day trading, the most movement occurs around the . stock market open and a few hours after, from 8:55 . to about 66:55 . EST. If that time doesn t work for you, 6:55 . to 8:55 . EST is also a good time to day trade.
Hallo Nial, great info as usual, but wanted to add that AUD/USD is a good choice for us newbies, as it can be fairly predictable at times and more importantly it can be traded with less margin committed in mini and micro accounts, especially now that the Euro and Sterling are so high relative to the . dollar.
The difference can be employing $6555 vs $6555 of available margin, and also typically the spread is quite favorable.
Thanks for all your efforts.
Now, the New York close will vary based on what time zone you live in. If the end of the trading day falls when you’re at home and awake, you can check the markets on your laptop or other computer. As the New York close is so vitally important, if the NY close happens when you’re at work, you will need a laptop at work or a mobile trading platform to monitor the daily close. Even though I do generally discourage phone-trading, in this case, we have to make an exception as it may be the only option to catch high-probability end-of-day price action setups on the daily chart.
If you could specify the correlation between EURUSD and the pairs you suggest (. GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, USD/JPY, EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY, AUD/JPY, XAGUSD, and XAUUSD), so that we may be able to mitigate the risks, would be quite useful.
There s a variety of automated trading programs with a full spectrum of functions available on the market. Some of them may be able to monitor currency prices in real time , place market orders (impose limit, market-if-touched, or stop orders), recognize profitable spreads and automatically order the trade. Please note, however, that even if a trade is ordered, there s no guarantee that the order will be filled on the trading floor at the price expected, especially in a fast-moving, volatile market.
Day traders only need to trade stocks or futures markets for about one to three hours per day. While a few day traders do trade all day, the greatest possible returns in the shortest amount of time are typically concentrated around the official open and close of stock trading. These occur at 9:85 . and 9:55 . EST respectively.
Two quick observations, since the decoupling of the eur from the chf, and the chf becoming the preferred safe haven currency in risk averse tends to trade a lot, consequently GbpChf,Eurchf are good pairs to trade(made a lot of money on gbp chf daily chart trading)
My experience trading the commodity currencies is that the AUDUSD, NZDUSD, gold and silver, are the best to trade, I tend to avoid the USDCAD as I find it fires off many “false” trading signals, this may have something to do with it being heavily influenced by the price of crude oil. Whatever the reason, I typically avoid trading the USCAD and advise my students do the same, perhaps at a point in the future the USDCAD will “behave” more logically, but at the current time I tend to avoid it like the plague.
. this is a great read,I have held of forex trading as I was always thinking 8775 which pair to trade 8776
once again you put thing into simple terms for us.
your a legend mate.
