Last year, I gave you six ways to make the most of your BabyPips.com experience. Taking the pip quizzes, following the FX-men’s social media accounts, and subscribing to our daily newsletter were just three of the tips I shared with you a few months back.
Now, I’m giving you six MORE tips because the FX-men have been busy working like Santa’s elves to come up with even more features to help you with trading!
1. Start your week by reading the market previews of the blog characters.
Aside from getting your daily dose of fundamentals from Pip Diddy and technicals from Big Pippin, make it a habit to develop a weekly outlook for your favorite pairs by checking out the market previews of Huck, Cyclopip, and Happy Pip.
Every Monday, these guys post their pre-trading blog entries for the week in order to prepare for what’s to come. They all have their own styles – some give fundamental outlooks by discussing upcoming events and prevailing market themes, while others focus more on technical setups and possible trade opportunities. Whether you trade the majors, crosses, or comdolls, you’re sure to find something to your liking!
Enhance your weekly pre-trading routine by catching Cyclopip’s entry in the Asian session, Huck’s entry in the London session, and Happy Pip’s entry in the U.S. session every Monday.
2. Join the Trade of the Week contest.
I run the Trade of the Week contest starting on Mondays, when I announce the winner for the previous week and open a brand-new contest up for submissions.
As I’ve said many times before, joining is a piece of cake. You just have to post your trade idea in a new thread under the Trade of the Week forum, but make sure to follow the official rules and regulations!
The submission period ends on Friday and voting runs throughout the weekend.
Don’t miss this awesome opportunity to put what you learned from the School of Pipsology to the test! It’s also a great way to learn from other traders, in case you’re not quite ready to submit your own trade idea to the contest.
3. Follow the conversation in our forums.
We’ve made it easier for you to keep track of the newest, most views, and most replied forum threads with the addition of the Follow the Conversation tab. Now, you can find the hottest topics in the forex community right on our homepage!
You also have the option to sort the most views and most replied threads on a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis, so catching up on the latest buzz should be quick and easy!
4. Check out the most recent trades of the blog characters.
Wanna know if your favorite blogger has a trade update? Keep track of his or her posts by looking at the Most Recent Trades box right from our homepage.
This feature provides a snapshot of which trades are being taken by the trade bloggers, with the gray arrows indicating whether it’s a long or short position. You can view the details by clicking on the trade.
5. Submit your system to the Best Forex Trading System of the Month contest.
We know that you guys are competitive so we’re running another contest called the Best Forex Trading System of the Month.
This contest is run by our friendly forex robot, Robopip, each month. Just as in the Trade of the Week, joining is simple as you just have to create a thread for your system’s rules and submit the link of that thread to the Best Forex Trading System thread for the month.
Aside from having your name up in our homepage and Hall of Fame of Past Winners, winning the contest has perks such as having your system backtested and graded by Robopip. On top of that, you’ll get to donate to your charity of choice from our Golden List of Charities.
6. Record and share your trade ideas in our Trade Journal forum.
Create your own thread to track your personal progress or follow other traders as they embark on their journeys to become consistently profitable! As always, just make sure you abide by the forum rules and regulations when posting.
There you have it, ladies and gents! I hope you’ll be able to make the most out of these new developments on BabyPips.com and if there are any other features you’d like to see, just let us know through the comments section below.
