Forex traders who are good at chess can improve their trading skills by applying their chess-playing skills. And professional, serious traders often look for “non-trading” methods that will help them increase profits and create an edge. While chess may seem like merely a game with no relevance to trading, chess can improve your trading skills and bring you more consistent profits.
We can certainnly compare chess to forex. From what at forex is a mind game and so is chess. If you cannot thinnk creatively like in chess then you cant on forex either. Just like you play chess with strategies you must also apply strategies in forex so that you get the best out of it. Keep your mind sharp and you will make it in forex.
Ok that is some food for though. I have played chess before and it requires some serious thinking. You have to be able to know what the possible moves of the players pieces are. Since each piece has its limitations and different movements then it really sharpens your memory because you have to master all of them. This memory is good in forex.
It takes time to learn forex but it does not necessariuly have to be that long if you have a sharp mind. Chess can be a tool to sharpen a traders mind. If you play chess and you are very good at it then mastering some things in forex will not be that difficult to you.
It is good to refreshen your mind every once in a while. Chess helps you to develop your ability to think. If you have ever watched professional shess players then you can tell ho they usually think. Their response time is really fast and it is the same kind response that we need in forex.
