Successful Forex trading is directly affected by the thoroughness of your preparation.
"A" students do not get their high marks by winging it during an exam. They do not stay up the night before watching movies or playing video games. They do not wait till the last minute to cram in the course materials, do the lessons or write their reports.
They give them plenty of time to study, pay attention in class and take good notes. They probably know and apply a few study techniques to help them learn more efficiently so they are not necessarily spending all day in the library, but they finish their assignments and have time left to spare for other activities.
If you are new to Forex trading, then you should definitely set some time to study the market before you jump in. Find a time and place were you will not be distracted. Take care of any duties or errands first so you can give your undivided attention to what you have to learn.
Unlike the letter grade you will earn in a classroom, in the Forex market you are graduated by the pluses or minuses in dollar amounts from your trading account. The better your understanding of the market and the buy and sell signals you will base your trades on, the more money you will add to your account.
Having a good working knowledge is essential in any endeavor you pursue if you want to be successful at it. In Forex trading, it is no different.
