Forex Fund Managers

By: Charley Warady
If you're an active Forex trader that loves to trade his own account and doesn't mind sitting in front of multiple computer screens all day every day, you need to know nothing about Forex fund managers. This is for a whole different group of people of which you don't apply.

If, however, you're the type of person that wants to make money in the Forex market passively, without the aggravation and anxiety of day to day trading, Forex fund managers might be just what you need.

Give me your money

Most financial, stock, and commodities exchanges have fund managers. These are people that are handling not only your money, but your trading as well. These are experts, oftentimes working in groups, that have a proven success rate. Forex fund managers are exactly these kind of people. The client gives them the money, and they give them back more money. It's a pretty simple concept when looked at that way, right? In essence that's exactly what's happening.

The Forex fund managers trade your account for you. Probably on their website and/or the prospectus they'll list the details of their success rate. Then you leave everything to them. Like all Forex trading, there is a risk; but because these people are professionals that have been successful for a length of time, your risk is obviously narrowed.

It is perfectly designed for the person who prefers a hands-off approach, but wants to take advantage of the money potential to be made in Forex.

Let the machine do it

 With automated Forex trading becoming more and more popular, many of the Forex fund managers offer the robot trading system to their clients. This takes away even more of the human aspect and can keep a client trading 24 hours a day. It really depends on an individual's preference because the Forex robot does not necessarily deliver better results than its human counterpart.

What to look for

Not all Forex fund managers are alike, otherwise there wouldn't be a need for more than one. There are some things you should look for if this is the kind of approach you wish to take when trading in the Forex market.

The first thing you want to do is look at their history of profitable trades. Most have this information on their websites, but if they don't, feel free to ask for it. The difference between the managers may be small but always something to consider.

Make sure they trade in multiple markets, and possibly even multiple systems. You want them doing things you could never do yourself. That's why you're paying them, after all.

Check out their fee structure. These vary, and are usually included in their graphs of returns, but it's still a good thing to know.

Most importantly, make sure the information you get from them is legitimate. Do your due diligence. You're giving these Forex fund managers your money and letting them do what they want with it. Make sure you're able to sleep at night knowing these are the guys you want doing that.
