Unlike currency pairs which can easily be affected by fundamental analysis, synthetic indices trading mostly depend on Price action, Market structure, Supply and Demand, etc. If I am buying boom for instance based on the market structure, the only time I can exit the market in loss is if there is a market structure violation which is mostly caused by Supply and Demand.

These Four things I am going to mention are very vital to your trading journey.

  • Price Action
  • Market Structure
  • Risk Management
  • Patience and Psychology
