FX Markets Reality - Retail v. Institutional - Key Points

Updated: Jun 19, 2023

The Erosion of Trading Confidence: Unveiling the Institutional Approach

One unfortunate constant in the retail trader experience is the gradual erosion of trading confidence caused by the use of lagging historical studies within a price action-based approach. Regrettably, neither of these elements holds any influence over how FX markets truly operate.

For many traders, these stumbling blocks become the final blow that dampens their willingness to forge ahead. However, I can personally attest that if I had succumbed to such challenges, I wouldn't be writing to you today. Instead, what if you chose to persevere and maintain unwavering focus? Those stumbling blocks could transform into stepping stones, leading you to one discovery after another. This revelation didn't occur overnight, but it became evident that there is a stark contrast between retail traders and institutional participants—and it's quite shocking! Institutional capital places little importance on price action, deeming it almost irrelevant.

The Institutional Approach:

  1. Understanding the Fundamental Influences: Discover why FX rates move in response to fundamental factors.

  2. Grasping Cross Border Capital Flows: Learn how FX rates are influenced by the flow of capital across borders.

  3. Seizing Opportunities: Unveil the timing of price movements and uncover lucrative opportunities in the market.

Notably, none of the components within the institutional approach have any connection to charts and candles. Instead, an intelligent strategy leverages the data that triggers price movements in the first place. This approach ensures institutional traders remain one step ahead of their retail counterparts. At iForex.Market, we will teach you how to measure fundamental influences, analyze cross border capital flows, and make informed decisions with our market-leading analysis.
