How Many Markets Should a New Trader Focus On?

Yeah good question, when new to trading it is easy to be overwhelmed with how many markets are available. What I suggest to new traders is to only focus on a few markets ( 2 to 3 markets ) and then over time consider looking at more.

In the video below I go over my thoughts and suggestions on this topic, how many markets I suggest new traders to start with and what type of markets such as local currency ( markets that you are more familiar with in preference ) and how when ready to consider to expand into more markets.

As for myself, I keep an eye on just over 30 markets and when a market tests an important area and provides a valid setup in the market (such as what I teach in The Engulfing Trader and The Candlestick Training Series) then I will consider an opportunity. Of course, this does not mean that I am trading all setups when multiple setups present themselves on different markets, I look at multiple aspects such as what type of evidence, what is the risk in relation to reward potential, as well as limiting exposure on open positions before management phase.
