Skills of Master Traders

Trading is one of the most decent professions in the world where the first thing you have to know about is how to trade safely. This is the riskiest market in the world and making any mistake means the risk exposure increases.

Becoming a trader is not a hard task but if you want to be a profitable trader and earn a decent amount of money from trading, you must have to be a master of trading, while having a good invoice template is an added advantage. No one is born a master trader. Rather, they increase their analytical skill through lots of practice.

A trader who trades with a big investment capital and dresses well doesn’t mean he is a master trader rather than a master trader who has certain criteria which makes them different from other traders and very few traders can reach that level in trading. In this article, we are going to talk about a few essential skills that differentiate a random trader from a master trader.

If you want to be successful in trading, you need to have to be keen on both fundamental and technical analysis. A master trader can go through all the variables that can affect the trading market and opens a position by taking proper safety measures.

They research in a way that enables them to identify the impact of factors on the market more accurately. Master traders develop their trading skills in such a way that they can use the market information to their advantage no matter which trend is going on.

The CFD market is so volatile that only by doing research and acting accordingly to it is not enough by itself. You need to have analytical skills which will give you the power of communicating with the market.

To becoming a master trader we suggest that you not give more focus on money rather than focusing on taking action at right time. A master trader mainly focuses on the movement of the market rather than how much profit they want to make from a signal.

Adapting the market with changing market condition

The CFD market is the most volatile market where the market never stops his movements rather than the market makes slow or fast movements. Due to that, a trader can find potential signals every minute but as different traders trade differently, finding a trade according to your trading personality is quite hard if you cannot adapt yourself with all types of market conditions.

Like if there is a slow movement in the market, a scalper might not think about trading at that time but a day trader can find a signal from that type of movement. This is where a master trader has an advantage because they can develop themselves in such a way that they can adapt to the market in all type of market conditions.

This is why the market can change frequently but a master trader in the Mena region will always be able to find a potential opening position. You can also read more about the elite traders on the Saxo Bank website.

Staying alive in the game 

In the CFD market, you can only make money. Without a decent balance, you cannot even open a position. We all know trading is not a safe profession but it is true if you know trading and you can keep your account balance safe, you will earn money eventually. But you cannot trade without any risk. You should follow a risk management plan to reduce your risk exposure.

A master trader always tries to stay in the trading game by following a well-maintained money management rule and they never take unnecessary risks which increase his risk exposure. He knows that he can only earn a decent amount of money if he has a decent amount of trading capital.

So, if you are a new trader and want to reach the rank of a master trader, try to improve your skills step by step.

By Dipo Olowookere

The chief executive of the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) Limited, Mr Temi Popoola, has said the exchange would consider policy advocacy aimed to encourage more companies from listing their shares on the bourse.

Speaking at an engagement session with institutional clients on Monday, July 26, 2021, Mr Popoola admitted that there was a dearth of listings on the exchange, but said efforts were being made to address the issue.

He identified two major areas around attracting more listings to the market first by considering the driving factor behind major spiked in listing activity and then considering barriers to entry.

In dealing with the first, he noted that, “It is impossible to disconnect policy from listing activities evidenced by the successes recorded in the eras of indigenization, privatisation and the banking sector consolidation.”

“Our strategy will, therefore, be built around policy advocacy, whilst addressing barriers to entry such as time to market, ease of entry and benefits of listing,” he revealed.

However, he emphasised that the demutualisation of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) some months ago has positioned the exchange to deliver more value to stakeholders.

“Following the recent demutualisation of the exchange, it is important that we continue to function well and deliver the highest level of service delivery that our stakeholders are accustomed to. It is not lost on us that we have to embody many things for our wide variety of stakeholders.

“As such we have begun to think about the exchange of tomorrow and how we can continue to meet evolving needs of the market. To do this, we will take on three major matters – listings, technology and investor participation,” he said.

Speaking technology, Mr Popoola recognised the advanced strides the exchange has made in digitisation over the years and indicated that it is time to take a step further to digital transformation, addressing how people connect to the bourse, how to distribute products through technology and how to democratise finance.

In this regard, he emphasised the need to attract more technology stocks to the Nigerian capital market in order to capitalise on the gains we see in global markets that are home to the world’s biggest technology companies.

As for investor participation, Mr Popoola stated, “We have big plans to attract investors – retail and institutional, domestic and foreign – to our market.

“In terms of diversification, we understand that equities may no longer be the answer for all investors and we are focused on creating an exchange that understands investors’ appetite and is indeed the preferred destination for finding products that suit their needs.”
