Forex Trading In Nigeria: Who Is Making The Money?

Online Forex Trading In Nigeria

The rush to join the online millionaire club is as high as ever in Nigeria. No thanks to the present economic hardship being faced by the populace. Nigerians are tired of waiting endlessly for the promised Dividends of Democracy. Too many are complaining that the only evidence of democracy they have so far is their empty pockets. Therefore, any magic formula to solve the problem overnight is highly welcomed. So, Online Forex Trading in Nigeria to the rescue!

David Ajao did an unbiased post about Online Forex Trading about a year ago. The post Forex Trading In Nigeria: Your link to Fabulous Wealth? addressed some issues which any wise Nigerian investor will need to thoroughly consider before committing fund into Forex Trading. Unfortunately, not so many have learned anything from that post. A look at the recent comments on the post reveals that too many are still IGNORANT of the issues surrounding FOREX trading.

If I did not learn anything from my little romance with Online Forex Trading, at least I learned the following:

Success in Forex Trading is possible when you take time to learn the business (it does not come overnight, it is HARDWORK!). Forget about the Magic Automated Forex Trading Softwares, they will only make a fool of you. Hey, buddy, put on your thinking cap, if those software are real, why will anyone tell you about them?

Just as it is possible to make fabulous wealth from Forex Trading after getting the required skill (which does not come cheap) so you can also loose so much and become bankrupt in a matter of seconds (So, many half-baked forex traders have paid dearly for their ignorance). Have you bothered to ask,  Why all the hype about the fantastic amount you can make daily, and nobody is talking about the loss you can incur in seconds? You want real testimonies from people who have lost good money, I have some. Ok, enough of the ramblings, lets answer the question.

Who Is Making The Money Trading Forex in Nigeria?

First, the educated forex traders who have acquired the necessary knowledge on how the Online Forex Market works. Note, they are not many, and they do not boast about their success. One of such trader testified that he spent 3years learning the rudiments and playing with demo accounts before using real cash. Do you have such patience? Are you prepared to pay the sacrifice of learning the Trade? You must learn the trade before the tricks, else you will only get tricked by scammers.

The second set of earners are the scammers who are making a lot of money by tricking ignorant Nigerians. There are thousands of self-certified Online Forex Trading Professors in Nigeria. They offer short courses on how to become a millionaire by trading forex. Their charges ranges between $40 to a whooping $1,200. As far as they can see, the only prerequisite to making money via forex trading is the ability to move a computer mouse! What a promise! Yet the newspapers and how-to-make-money magazines are filled with their advertisements.

I promised you a real testimony, here it is. About a year ago, two close friends of mine paid One Hundred and fifty Thousand Naira each (about $1,282) each for a one week training on Online Forex Trading. My friends and I were sincere and genuine in our quest for knoweldge, and the promised education looked real enough. I was meant to participate in the training, but I failed to raise the course fee before the deadline.  After the training, my friends recounted how it was a huge success and they wished I was there. Well, poor me, I tried to “parasite” from the knoweldge they acquired by reading the materials given to them and practicing online with the demo softwares provided.

Unfortunately, it turned out that the so called teachers were economical with the truth. We were not informed that it is not possible to start trading and earning good return after a one week crash course in Forex Trading! It did not take a long time for us to discover first hand that the training was actually a scam because it was just an introduction to a business that requires detailed and consistent learning, non-stop! If they had told us the truth, we will not be willing to buy the course even at a discount of 90%! All the material and software they gave are actually available for free online. We were just scammed (never mind that I didn’t take the course, if the cash was available, I would have paid, so I was gullible just like my friends, no need pretending that I was smarter).

It pains my heart that one year after that close call I had, I still see a lot of Nigerians falling prey for this cheap scam. To start with, the infastructural facilities on ground makes it very difficult for an average Nigerian to participate in live online fx trading. Too many are using dial-up internet connections that are epileptic. The few that are using VSAT still suffer poor connection whenever the weather becomes cloudy especially in rainy seasons.

That factor alone is enough to make an average Nigerian think twice before committing so much money in Forex Trading. I decided to discountinue the venture because of the high risk due to the epileptic internet connection. I can easily recount how on several occassions I had loose some minutes work online due to electricity failure or epileptic internet connection.

This post is not meant to discourage you from going into Forex Trading. Neither am I classifying Online Forex Trading as a no go area for Nigerians. Rather it is just a personal testimony of my sincere observations. Belief it or not, only two sets of people are making money from Forex Trading in Nigeria. The few educated and skilled forex traders make money from Forex Trading while the fake forex trainers make money from greedy and ignorant wannabe forex millionaires! Unfortunately, the scammers are more in number.

If you have a different opinion, place your facts and figures in the comment section for everyone to verfiy. I welcome constructive criticisms. Please, note that unverifiable claims that is meant to further lead people astray will be pointed out as such or better still deleted, SCAMMERS BEWARE!

    • david says:

      You can open a domiciliary account

    • Shy says:

      You can open a domicilliary account (USD), I am using Gtbank for my domicilliary account. You can go to the Abokis (bureau de change) to convert your naira into dollars and then fund ur domicilliary account. Let’s say u want to start trading with $100, as at now $1 is 156naira so u exchange 15,600naira to $100 from Abokis then. save the $100 into ur DOM account. To now fund ur Forex Account online, you will fill bank wire transfer form on your broker’s page online and the details of the broker’s bank account will be given to you. These details will be taken to the bank and u’ll make a wire transfer from your DOM account to the Broker’s bank account, once the transfer is credited into the Broker’s bank account then your forex account will be funded (wire transfer usually takes 3-5 working days) and any time you want to withdraw ur profit or capital from your forex account, it will be sent to ur DOM account that u used to wire the first money. That’s all.

    Forex trading is not a wonderful way of making money. I am still learning and will become successful at trading. Forex is like every other business, it is almost impossible to make money overnight, it takes hardwork, discipline, sweat, passion and little luck. My stay in forex no longer for the money i hope to make but for the fact that forex has opened my eyes to lot of real life truths. Forex has taught me that it take discipline and patience to get anywhere tangible in life. It has taught be that a long term view of life gives you control over the present and the future. You will realise that a million invested today can mean a billion in thirty years time, thats barely 3% monthly return, it unveils your thinking of making money overnight and gets you to start doing all the work necessary, that is where the money is made.
    Forex trading is not for everyone just like writing, footballing and other human endeavours. Only 5% of forex traders succeeds, take a look at any profession and find out if up to 5% attain exceptional success over a long period of time, or an overall view of the world populace, how many of it achieve outstanding success. Forex is a window to how life works.
    You will surely make money in Forex if you invest all that is required of you to make money in other endearvours. Thank you

  11. Pst. Praise says:

    Yeah u’re right my brother, forex biz has turned from “forest” to “jungle” that swallows not only peoples money but lives. I can name about 3 people at my finger tips who are presently stroked down on bed in an attempt to manage other ppl’s money. A man also attempted drowning himself in a river but for the timely divine intervention of my success story as captioned in success digest magazine vol.3 No.2 Tuesday,March 18,2008. To make it in fx biz, continuity is the rule of the game.You must catch a personal revelation of the market after you’ve proven other ppl’s discoveries. You must also conquer these 3 demons in forex;1) Fear, 2) Greed, and 3)anxiety that leads to haste. A good money management that tallies with long term plans is of utmost importance as well. Although I have been able to crack the code in fx, i have continually worked on my trading mind in the aforementioned areas. These has kept me always on the positive, no more margin calls, or wrong entries. It may take some time but consistently adjusting your trading journals which reveals the real you would get u there. Regards.

  12. S. O. AJAO says:

    Thank you very much. Our elders use to say truth is bitter. I am a forex trader and being an insider I know that all you said was true. Keep on the good work . And if you have anything to help the fellow forex traders please don’t hesitate to do it. GOD BLESS YOU.

    AM ALSO INTERESTING IN THE BUSINESS, HOW DO I GO ABOUT IT

    • douye says:

      you can start with marketiva please contact me on my phone number 07066295466 i will give you trading skills so that you wont loose your money

      • netcoil says:

        Please always be truthful in dealings with people, everybody looses money in forex, its best to say you would teach him the fundamentals and not he is not going to loose money, because forex trading does not come that cheap. He will most likely blow this first account… probability of 99%

  14. Richard says:

    Please you think of trading Forex. i have two rules for you.
    Rule one. Use a demo account and make sure you double your demo account at least twice before you go live.
    Rule two. Always stick to rule one
    Forex trading is not a fantasy business or a business for poor folks.

    • NaijaEcash says:

      Good point, sound advice.

    • netcoil says:

      Well, honestly speaking a demo account is nothing but playing GOD OF WAR on PS3. What a demo account should do is to get you familiar with the operations, look and feel of your trading environment depending on your broker.
      Making a profit of 5000% on a demo account does not guarantee you anything when you enter the real jungle, because your emotion was not tested.
      I suggest you open an account with a small amount and trade on low leverage… then you have some kind of attachment and experience with loosing and making profit.

  15. Richard says:

    Sir, trading a small amount is not a real test of emotion. i have a micro account and a mini account. I dont get emotional knowing a pip is 0.1 dollars.
    Have u double your demo account before? The skill that will double your demo account is enough to keep you going. I am an expert trader, and will not tell you what it took me to get here.
    Here are things demo account will do for you.
    1. it will show you how frustrating forex can be. Every trader starts by being discretionary trader before they find a strategy.
    2. Demo account will get familiar with the trading environments, how the software works, the shortcuts and etc.
    you will find out soon while trading demo that making money is elusive, and u will suddenly know in your trying not to give up the importance of keeping a trading journal.
    Forex is about uncertainity, all you are trying to do is to be in the market when you feel the market will likely go your direction, low margin starts making a meaning to you. position sizing will come to fore.
    On final note, there is no one way in which trading is best for all. Everybody will always have a different approach. Try to double your demo account at least twice before you go live. Its not as easy thing to do.
    Use higher time frame, i recommend daily and weekly. use stop loss, use position sizing to make sure you dont risk more than 2% of your capital. trade very few markets. read every on forex online, babypips.com, learntotradethemarket.com, forexoma.com, read all articles and books on earnforex.com. your forex will start taking shape before you know it.
    you need to be well capitalized. i recommend at least 2500 for a micro account, 25000 for a mini account and 250000 for a standard account.
    The problem with forex is emotion, be patient, use a trading journal to review your performance. It takes lot and lots of time to master forex.
    and even when you get to that point of master, you need lot of energy to stay disciplined. Thank you all

    • netcoil says:

      Its interesting to know your profitable in this venture and am happy for you, also be mindful that your not the only profitable trader in the forum, but advising to trade on Demo and doubling your account before going live is totally unacceptable to me,
      I have seen a lot of people making serious money on their demo account regardless of the deposit and strategy who end up blowing accounts when live. This is because they can do whatever they please and get away with it, that is why i dont recommend it at all,

      DEMO IS AN ILLUSION ( false impression of reality). They dont experiences the real thing. You need the real thing no matter how little you experience it, that will keep you in sync with realities of the market.

      Thats all i have to say…
      Happy Trading….

  22. akwa says:

    I have been trading and learning for 3 years. Lost almost a million naira. I take it as a price I had to pay because right now I achieve a winning percentage of about 80. You must accept losses, it’s part of the game. If you can’t stand losses then put on your skates and bolt, and don’t discourage others.

    Advice is, if you want to trade be serious. This is no part time business. I refused to give up because I saw traders in this country and outside live real big. Our internet services are not that bad if you look carefully and we have banks that support fx trading.

  23. Bernard says:

    I’ve heard a lot about FX trading and i must confess that it sounds really cool. I would like to tap into it. I need advice.

  24. Okey says:

    Good day all and many thanx to all contributors to this page. Personally, l traded forex for 3 years before breaking the success jinx. However, when l took upjob and tried to combine both, l got back to square one.

    At the moment,once feelings of anxiety can dictate fear or greed and no level of achievement aloows you conquer these emotions permanently.

    l would like the phone contact of established forex trafers in Abuja to be encouraged in this area again.

    I was losing until I subscribed to leopardtrader.com. I am doing ok now that I see that Forex trading is not a day to day trading. I now hold trades for days and weeks with limited draw down. Clearly some people are better and it is real to make $$ trading forex. You dont need to quit your job if you have swing view than every minute view. It is not possible to profit trading on intraday basis. Just a waste of time

    Forex is not for everybody, you need to have a good understanding on youself as it relate to money. Success in forex is majorly depend on your psychology.Then you need sound knowledge about the market, this will define what kind of trader you are ( fundamental or techinal). Do not relay on any system or EA that is not build around you trading stley. Every trader has his/her own trading stlye be novic or proffessional.

    It is like walking, no matter how much you train your child to walk, he will fall everyone need to learn it his own way.

  46. I did forex for about eight years. Made money, loosed money. Before I came into conclusion I tried to see if someone out there was getting it right while I was wrong. Thanks to a platform like the instaforex and other pamm monitoring. Traders come, claim gurus, make real money, reign for like three to six months or even a year and then a long trend that refuse to return would come and finish the money. You may say that it’s because the was no stop loss, and I’ll proof to you that “WITH STOP LOSS NO TRADER CAN MAKE MONEY”. This is because trade always go opposite direction like 30 to 40 pips before returning to the real direction to make money for you. So if you fix a stop loss it would first hit it and cause you some loss before going your direction. Forex traders who make money don’t use stop loss and it’s just a matter of time before the long movement would come and claim it all. Trader please tell people the truth.

    please, printing of recharga card is it forex trading?

  49. pls I need training on this venture

  50. John says:

    Your opinion about the business of trading forex is not wrong at all. Research has also established overtime that in any population, only less than 20% is likely to earn 90% of the wealth.

    Thesame is applicable in FOREX trading, less than 20% of the total number of traders in the world including institutional investors eat 90% of the $4.3 trillion daily bread in the market.

    My first attempt in trading FOREX was far back in 2008 but I quite in 2009 and resumed again in 2012. I lost more than a thousand five hundred dollars trying to make money online trading FOREX and Binary options. It was only at the 2nd half of 2013 that I became confident and started making consistent profits in my trades.

    In my case, I never patronised those quack seminars for even a day but I did a lot of hard work in personal studies and research. In my humble opinion, the greatest tool any trader can have is knowledge. Without the right knowledge all strategies to leverage the market would fail woefully.

    Forex is just like any other risky betting. What makes a consistent winner is his knowledge and information. Most people approach the market as a game where thy accept a win or loss in good faith like the regular gambler . Others sees it as a business where profits must be maximised as the very few successful gamblers who know when to bet, when to quit, how much to put at a time and when to just stay away from betting. They are not gamblers but wise business men. Those are the ones that make a fortune from the trade.

    Finally, I would not discourage newbies in the Forex business that are coming up in Nigeria. It is a very profitable venture to consider, especially with the increasing situation of unemployment in the country. Its risky though just like any other business. I would have not gained my present mastery in trading if I took to discouragement and stopped trading. The only thing that kept me going amid my losses was my interest in the market. Don’t trade forex because you hear that it could make u rich in a short while. Trade for the love you have for the market. Its real fun to trade.

    Forex requires a lot of patience, if you must remain profitable in Forex business patience is an indispensable attitude u must learn.

    Let me share a little bit of my over 80% patient and consistent winning strategy.

    I am not a day trader, I trade on swing strategy. I don’t use any indicator except to aid my exit point. I hold my trades for a minimum of one week, some times for over a month or two. I had a trade I held for about 3 months which earned me about 10,000 points (I prefer to assess my trades in terms of points and not in money terms). You can’t trade my method except you are a pro, its very simple though. I use both technical and fundamental analysis (more of technical anyway). I would likely trade uncorrelated currency pairs to diversify my portfolio (except I just want to take advantage of an opportunity since its less risky). There is almost no element of sentiments in trading my method because you don’t have to be moping at the market as day traders and scapllers do. You can monitor ur trades weekly if u like. You can learn on demo account and trade effectively on real account. It allows you to trade and do your day job. (Diversify your sources of income)

    It takes some time to confirm a buy or sell (sometimes weeks), i risk less than 5% of my account (most times 2 or 3% or even no risk) on a particular trade because I would adjust my stop loss above break-even thesame day or 2 after a trade is placed. I trade on small lots but on the long run i make about the same net return with those greedy traders who always burn their fingers on the Market.

    What informed my trading strategy was a wisdom I learnt from the book of proverbs in the Bible (often hear people say “holy grail” I think what you believe works for you). It says “He that maketh haste to be rich shall not be inocent”. (I chose to climb the ladder one step after the other, I find it safer that way).

    I can teach anyone (that loves Forex with passion as I do) my strategy at no cost except on executive training and financial institutions. But you must be hard working and ready to acquire knowledge on your own. I don’t have the time to babysit anyone (I’m yet to have a child of my own).

    Good luck to all Nigerian Forex traders. Keep learning, continually beat the market. God bless you all.
