    The secret currency technique that banks use to make billions

     

    Dear Friend, The currency markets are the backbone of global economy and the banks are riding it like a bucking bronco. The banks don’t make their money from speculating or trading the currency markets they make their money from being the currency market. What I mean by the banks is being the market is that they will make money whether you win or lose on a trade. This happens because the banks make money from the pip spreads on the front end and are always in a hedged position when a currency transaction occurs. So it does not matter what the market ultimately the banks wins regardless. Well if the banks hedge there position to protect them selves, why don’t we as traders do the same. Everyone has heard the term for every action there is a reaction, and every negative has a positive, and what goes up must come down; you get the picture. Well the same applies for the currency markets we refer to it as hedging using negative correlations, or simply one pair goes up when the other pair goes down and vice versa. It is very important for any one involved in the forex market to understand this basic concept of risk management. This technique is used all the time by banks, and especially major international corporations that do business in other currency besides the dollar. This is simply a logical choice when you are trading multiple currency pairs to ensure that your trading account does not get depleted very rapidly. Negative as well as positive correlations exist between all currency pairs and are susceptible to change based on the a variety of factors, and of course monetary policy in that country being one of if not the biggest influence. A trader should check the currency pair correlation often to ensure that there has not been any major changes in the way currency pairs are affecting each other. This can be done in any number of ways; most forex trading software packages include the ability to view historical and daily currency prices which will allow you to determine a correlation between currency pairs. In closing I highly recommend if you trade currency you become familiar with Correlation Coefficient between currencies pairs so hedge your positions and limit your market exposure for maximum profit.

         
    The trading teacher

     

    When I studied the principles of investing in university, I was taught that the price of a share reflected the value of the company. With fundamental analysis, there are many methods on how one can analyse the financial statements of companies to find out whether a share is a good or a bad investment. You can conduct horizontal and vertical analyses on standardised financial statements, which are just fancy terms for comparing numbers. You can calculate certain financial ratios to get a better understanding of a company’s liquidity, working capital management, its ability to remain in business over the long term, and its profitability. I applied these concepts when I started trading the stock market. Soon I found that if I wanted to trade shares in a timeframe of less than three months, decisions based on these analyses were not useful. I did not want to buy shares only to receive dividends. I wanted to trade for capital gains. I was dissatisfied with my knowledge, the tools and the methods that I had to trade the markets. With my desire to trade a timeframe shorter than three months and my strengthening belief that emotions greatly impact on trading, I began to search for different approaches to buying and selling shares. I went back to one of my textbooks in university. I wanted to know how else I could analyse the markets. From the passage I read, I learned that one can analyse the markets in one of two ways: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. I bumped into a newspaper ad one day for a trading seminar. While reading through the ad I saw the words: technical analysis. An expert trader was going to speak on the exact topic I was interested in learning. It was a free seminar and everybody was welcome to come along. So I called a friend of mine and I asked if he would be interested in attending this trading seminar. He was. The seminar was organised by a business selling trading courses: courses to instruct people on how to trade the share market. When we arrived, we were led into a small room. There were about thirty people. The spokesman was apparently a veteran trader who wrote two books on trading. Let’s call him Bauer for the purpose of this article. Bauer had a very strong presence. He was a huge, tall man with a clean-shaven head. I was on the front row seat trying to listen and understand every word this man said. It was his teachings that planted the seeds of how I eventually grew as a trader over the years. Many times, I heard his voice in my head, reminding me of the lessons I learnt from his books and the lessons I learnt from him that day. I will try to enumerate the lessons I learnt from this man to help you the way they helped me. This man had my attention from the very beginning. “The share market is a game where people try to steal money from other people. That is the objective of the game and it is legal”, he began. I wondered what the professionals in Wall Street would have thought about that statement if they heard it. I smiled. I liked him already. He continued: “If you are going to join this game, you are essentially given permission to steal money from other people and in exchange, you are okay with them stealing your money also. Some of the brightest people in the world will be playing with you. Therefore, if you are going to war and fight an army with real weapons, you better make sure you do not go there with a plastic gun.” He said that people rush to the markets to lose their money. It sounded laughable but I guess it was the only conclusion one can draw from the fact that most people begin trading without sufficiently preparing and educating themselves. Of course, most of us do not put on a trade with the hope of losing our money; however, that is what we are effectively doing when we trade without adequate preparation. “They just cannot wait to lose their money. They do not bother learning about the market first. They think it is easy. Most people know that they need training before they can fly a plane or perform surgery, but I do not know why they think it is easy to make money trading”, he exclaimed. He was quite emotional about it. “Trading is hard”, he declared. Only about 5% of people know how to trade profitably. And so the probability of finding someone else who knows what they are doing is very, very small. “Do not rely solely on the advice of your brokers, your fund managers or whoever else. Your best hope for success is to educate yourself. The sooner you do that, the better off you’ll be.” “When it comes to buying and selling shares, there is no such thing as investing. What people normally refer to as investing means long-term trading to me”. When people hold on to their investments for five or more years with the intention to sell later, then all they are effectively doing is trading…just with a longer time frame. “Do not buy shares solely for the dividend payments. They offer you measly rewards”, he said. “Do trade only with the purpose of making money from capital gains. Buy low, sell high and that’s how you should make your profit.” At the time, I was juggling between the concepts of short-term trading or investing for the long-term. I did not know whether I was taking the right approach by attempting to make short-term profits. He made his stance on the matter strongly. He asked us if we knew what drove prices up or down. Remembering what my lecturer said in university, I responded, “the price moves up and down close to the intrinsic value of the share”. He turned his attention to me and asked, “What share are you trading?” “XYZ (I changed the name for the purpose of this article)”, I replied quite happily. Perhaps I could squeeze a tip or two from him about the stock. “Do you know what the intrinsic value of XYZ Company is”, he asked. I nodded my head sideways and muttered, “no”. “I’ll tell you what the value of XYZ is… it is zero!” He barked. I was taken aback by his response. Zero? Then what are we paying money for when we buy a share? I thought. Then he clarified himself. “Price is only a perception – it is people’s perception of what they think the value of the share price is”. “The key to success in trading is psychology”, he continued. Psychology? I thought. How did psychology get involved in this? “The stock market is like an opinion poll. It is a measure of what people think is going to happen. If they think the price will go up, you will see an upward movement on the chart because there are more buyers so the sellers increase their price because some of these buyers are willing to buy at higher prices”, he explained. He then used an example to explain a typical trader’s behaviour when he trades without a system. As he explained it, I recognised my own behaviour in his demonstration. This was all a revelation for me. When I was buying and selling shares I wondered what type of people were on the other side of the trade because collectively, they were pretty smart. Now I know. It was people like Bauer who were on the other side of those transactions, doing the exact opposite of what I was doing, using similar methods like the ones he was using. They were looking at the share market with a philosophy and an approach that were completely alien to me. Traders like him were making all the money and traders like me were losing. I shook my head in disbelief that other people saw things the way they did. I felt excited knowing that there was another alternative, another approach in analysing the markets. “What you need, is to develop your own trading system.” He exclaimed to everybody in the entire room. “Without a trading system, you will fail. I guarantee you. This trading system must be something that is suited for you and you only. Even if I give you my trading system I am certain that you will fail to make money, because my system is not designed for you. It is designed for me. That is why you need to learn how to use the tools and acquire the skills needed to be a trader”. I accepted his advice without fully understanding this concept of matching a trading system to suit the trader’s own personality. It lingered in my mind for a long time. The wisdom of his advice became apparent to me as I slowly learnt more about the nature of trading. Bauer diverted our attention to the charts on the screen projected from his laptop. All I saw were lines, curves, rectangular boxes and more squiggly lines. The tools of a professional trader: I thought. I was being shown the tools that my market ‘adversaries’ have been using to ‘clobber’ me with all this time. My heart was beating faster than usual. I was in awe. I wanted those tools. I asked Bauer what program he used to analyse the markets. He told me. I also asked him how many indicators he used. I had read enough about technical analysis by that time to know that technical analysts use indicators to analyse share prices. There are many indicators to choose from so I wanted to know how many of those are used by professional traders. He started counting his fingers. ‘Seven’, he said. I think many people there had not really read up on technical analysis but I had done my homework and by that time, I was pretty much the only person in dialog with him, asking him questions. I wanted to gain as much knowledge and wisdom he was willing to give me. Then I heard one of the most important lessons I’ve learnt which minimised my losses during my early years of trading: “Trade so small that it is almost a waste of your time. Assume the next trade is going to be the first out of a thousand trades you are going to be making in your life. Even though your profits are smaller, your losses are smaller too. There is no need to rush. Do not worry about getting rich too quickly.” He was suggesting that novices like me should trade using small position sizes. That means to buy small number of shares at the start. I was intrigued. I did not know a person should trade that ‘small’. Eventually, the seminar ended. I grabbed the booklets and brochures given out by some of the staff. In one of these brochures was the name of the program he uses. They were selling the software with the courses they were offering. I could not afford the entire package but I knew I had to buy the same charting software Bauer used. I decided to learn as much as I could about how to use charts and graphs to analyse the market. I needed to develop my own trading system. As for my friend, he said he had a car loan to take care of first. He would look into trading shares later when he had a little more money to set aside. A couple of days later, I got a call from the organiser of the seminar, telling me that based from the questions I had been asking that night, I was the type of person that would most benefit from their education package. Bauer was asked to demonstrate the need for trading education because he traded the markets. In the process, he was selling the courses well. Bauer seemed knowledgeable and experienced. He has enlightened me and probably several other people in that room about how much there was to learn. I was sold. I just could not afford the courses at the time but I wanted them so badly that I asked the sales person on the other end of the line if I could work for them in exchange for the course. I did not get to do the course but I bought the software from a different distributor at a cheaper price. I also bought the two books Bauer wrote. I figured that I could acquire the skills and wisdom through self-education. I learnt a lot from those two books and from using the software. Having that opportunity to attend that seminar was a ‘gift from the heavens’, as far as I was concerned. Wherever you are, Bauer, I thank you. You – and others like you -- have made me recognize the value of passing on knowledge and experience for others to follow. - END OF ARTICLE - Please activate all hyperlinks and include the paragraph below if you are republishing this article online or in print.

         
    The truth about trading the forex

     

    I have been trading the Foreign Exchange Currency Market (Forex) live for a few months as of this writing. I have to say it is VERY exciting! I was beating my brains out trying to trade the Stock Market. Over 40 thousand stocks to watch (way too many). I tried Futures trading. That was just plain wacky. I tried Options Trading. Many more losses than gains. Then I found out about the FOREX! At first, I was a skeptic. I didn’t believe all the hype (having seen the results of my last trading encounters). Now, I have found it is entirely possible to completely replace your income. In a matter of a few minutes, you can make hundreds of dollars and do this multiple times a week! Here are only some of the advantages I have found trading the Forex: You only have to watch one major currency pair (EUR/USD) to make money instead of over 40,000 stocks on the stock exchanges. Feel free to trade other pairs, but get good at it first. The Forex Market trades 24 hours / 6 days a week. The Forex begins trading on Sunday at 2 pm EST and goes straight through until Friday at 4 pm EST. You can trade according to your schedule, unlike the Stock Market that’s only trading from 9:30 am to 4 pm EST. You only need $300 to open a trading account with a Forex broker. You don’t have to pay commissions to the broker. This is HUGH! What a savings! What you see is what you get in your brokerage account. After you close your trade the exact amount goes, instantly, into your account. You can learn how to trade in a matter of hours. All beginners are welcome. You don’t have to have any special degree to trade. No one is going to ask you what university you attended or what credentials you have. You are completely anonymous! World’s best home-based business. You can have your own business with NO employees! Work from home or ANYWHERE you can get an internet connection! (High Speed Broadband connection preferred) You are in 100% control! In fact, you can sit at your computer and trade without having to talk to anyone. You are now on a level playing field with the enormous international banks. The Forex used to be only available to the banking institutions until around 1999. Now individual traders can trade the Forex to make a healthy income. Trading the Forex Market offers an unlimited opportunity! The choice is yours. I know which market I chose! Wishing you the greatest success, Sue Edwards

         
    Think forex and consider these two factors

     

    In this article I will cover two important advantages that the Forex market offers to traders. Daytrading with a small account If you want to daytrade with stocks and you have less than $25.000 on the account, you are likely to have a hard life. The reason is that a rule called "pattern day traders" allows you to daytrade freely only if you have that amount or more on your account. If you have less, your daytrades (positions entered and exited the same day) are limited to three in any five trading days period. Your broker should monitor your activity and make sure you do not execute trades that are not allowed under the "pattern day traders" rule. This regulation applies for stocks and stock options. The Forex market at the time of this writing is not involved. Risk Control The Forex market has two characteristics that may translate in a better risk control on your trades. What I mean by risk control, is the possibility to define your maximum loss should the market move agains you. If we do not consider the use of options or other tools as a hedge, the way to take control of losses is by using a stop loss order. Nothing new, up to here. The problem that at times traders face is that a stop order can be executed at a price much worse than the one intended and originally set. Generally, there are two situation where this can happen. The first has to do with the liquidity of the market. Within this article, we can consider liquidity as a synonymous of trading volume. If liquidity is poor in a market, there might be a significant price difference from one execution to the next one. You can notice this easily in any intraday chart of a small volume security: the price does not move in a continuous an harmonic way, like it does in a very liquid market; rather, it has a tendency to "jump" from one level to the next. This can affect the execution of your orders in a negative way. The phenomenon is also referred to as "slippage". Here we consider in particular the exit order, but slippage can affect your entry order as well, and this could translate in for example in a buy order executed at a higher price than the one you wanted to buy. The Forex market does not fear competitors about liquidity. 1.5 Trillions dollar are traded in Forex every day. The other markets follow at a big distance. The second factor that gives trouble to risk control is in the occurence of price gaps. Say your stock closes today at 63, and your stop order is at 61.5. In theory, your maximum risk is 1.5 points per share. But the stock for any reason tomorrow opens for trading at 57, and you will be stopped out at that price, so the actual loss will be 5 points per share. Gaps are common in stocks whenever an important news is announced when the market is closed. Sometime an important news can cause a gap even intraday, especially in a not so liquid market. Some other times, the trading in a stock is suspended just in the wait of an important pending news. A gap in almost assured when the news is released. Of course, your position can also benefit from a gap, if the gap direction is in your favour. But the point here is that the occurence of gaps reduces your power to control risk with a stop loss order. The Forex market is virtually always open from Monday to Friday. There can be wild intraday moves caused by news, but the occurence of gaps is very rare within the week. These are just two of the potential advantages the Forex market offers to traders. There are many others that I will not cover here, from the cost of trading (commissions are often zero), to the amount necessary to open an account (which can be very low). All these factor explain why the Forex market is attracting more and more traders. Good trading Roberto Zarotti

         
    Trading flexibility in the forex market

     

    How does a trader test his/her strategies and abilities without paying (or paying too much) for his/her mistakes ? I would say there are three possible answers. One first answer, of course, is by paper trading. Paper trading means that you do not actually execute your orders, but you only "bookkeep" them, testing on paper what their results would be. At the next level you can trade in a simulated account. This is similar to paper trading, as you are not trading with real money, but just testing the result of your strategies; on the other side with a simulated account you are really using you Broker platform so you are at the same time training yourself in dealing with order execution issues. Simulated accounts are nowadays offered by many Brokers; in the Forex market it is common to get this feature. Say you trade your strategy for some time with a simulated account, and everything goes fine; you would expect that real trading should go fine as well. Still, there is an issue you did not deal with: your emotions. These will come into the game only when you trade with your real money. Emotions can do a big difference. They often explain differencies in results between traders that can be absolutely comparable in terms of market know-how and strategy. Why ? because they often force you not to follow the rules of your trading plan. Emotions can make you a hard life in keeping the necessary discipline. So, how to deal with the emotional issue of trading ? There are ways to learn also in this topic, of course, but in this case your own direct experience is more difficult to replace, in my opinion. However, the experience can be expensive, of course. A possible solution is to trade with real money, but in a very small size. This is always a good idea at the beginning. Start small, gain experience and then increase gradually your trading size. So the third answer to our first question is: by trading small. You might object that, if the trading size is too small, your emotional involvement will also be small, so the aim of putting emotions into the game is missed. Partly, this is true. However, the difference between using real money and just playing with numbers is there. And the decision about how big the size should be, is just yours. The forex market gives you big flexibiliy about your trading size. First, because the minimum required to open an account can be really small, in the order of $300. Trading size of course can be small too. The Forex market offers you a great leverage possibility, but again, how much of it to use is something that only you can decide. Second, because in the forex market it is common for Brokers not to charge a fix commission to trades. The cost of the trade is generally represented only by the bid-ask spread. This means that small trades are not penalized by fix commissions. This flexibility can offer an advantage for traders who want to gain experience before moving forward. Good trading, Roberto Zarotti

         
    Trading psychology mistakes in a trading environment

     

    When it comes to trading, one of the most neglected subjects are those dealing with trading psychology. Most traders spend days, months and even years trying to find the right system. But having a system is just part of the game. Don’t get us wrong, it is very important to have a system that perfectly suits the trader, but it is as important as having a money management plan, or to understand all psychology barriers that may affect the trader decisions and other issues. In order to succeed in this business, there must be equilibrium between all important aspects of trading. In the trading environment, when you lose a trade, what is the first idea that pops up in your mind? It would probably be, “There must be something wrong with my system”, or “I knew it, I shouldn’t have taken this trade” (even when your system signaled it). But sometimes we need to dig a little deeper in order to see the nature of our mistake, and then work on it accordingly. When it comes to trading the Forex market as well as other markets, only 5% of traders achieve the ultimate goal: to be consistent in profits. What is interesting though is that there is just a tiny difference between this 5% of traders and the rest of them. The top 5% grow from mistakes; mistakes are a learning experience, they learn an invaluable lesson on every single mistake made. Deep in their minds, a mistake is one more chance to try it harder and do it better the next time, because they know they might not get a chance the next time. And at the end, this tiny difference becomes THE big difference. Mistakes in the trading environment Most of us relate a trading mistake to the outcome (in terms of money) of any given trade. The truth is, a mistake has nothing to do with it, mistakes are made when certain guidelines are not followed. When the rules you trade by are violated. Take for instance the following scenarios: First scenario: The system signals a trade. 1. Signal taken and trade turns out to be a profitable trade. Outcome of the trade: Positive, made money. Experience gained: Its good to follow the system, if I do this consistently the odds will turn in my favor. Confidence is gained in both the trader and the system. Mistake made: None. 2. Signal taken and trade turns out to be a loosing trade. Outcome of the trade: Negative, lost money. Experience gained: It is impossible to win every single trade, a loosing trade is just part of the business; our raw material, we know we can’t get them all right. Even with this lost trade, the trader is proud about himself for following the system. Confidence in the trader is gained. Mistake made: None. 3. Signal not taken and trade turns out to be a profitable trade. Outcome of the trade: Neutral. Experience gained: Frustration, the trader always seems to get in trades that turned out to be loosing trades and let the profitable trades go away. Confidence is lost in the trader self. Mistake made: Not taking a trade when the system signaled it. 4. Signal not taken and trade turns out to be a loosing trade. Outcome of the trade: Neutral. Experience gained: The trader will start to think “hey, I’m better than my system”. Even if the trader doesn't think on it consciously, the trader will rationalize on every signal given by the system because deep in his or her mind, his or her “feeling” is more intelligent than the system itself. From this point on, the trader will try to outguess the system. This mistake has catastrophic effects on our confidence to the system. The confidence on the trader turns into overconfidence. Mistake made: Not taking a trade when system signaled it Second Scenario: System does not signal a trade. 1. No trade is taken Outcome of the trade: Neutral Experience gained: Good discipline, we only need to take trades when the odds are in our favor, just when the system signals it. Confidence gained in both the trader self and the system. Mistake made: None 2. A trade is taken, turns out to be a profitable trade. Outcome of the trade: Positive, made money. Experience gained: This mistake has the most catastrophic effects in the trader self, the system and most importantly in the trader’s trading career. You will start to think you need no system, you know better from them all. From this point on, you will start to trade based on what you think. Confidence in the system is totally lost. Confidence in the trader self turns into overconfidence. Mistake made: Take a trade when there was no signal from the system. 3. A trade is taken, turned out to be a loosing trade. Outcome of the trade: negative, lost money. Experience gained: The trader will rethink his strategy. The next time, the trader will think it twice before getting in a trade when the system does not signal it. The trader will go “Ok, it is better to get in the market when my system signals it, only those trade have a higher probability of success”. Confidence is gained in the system. Mistake made: Take a trade when there was no signal from the system As you can see, there is absolutely no correlation between the outcome of the trade and a mistake. The most catastrophic mistake even has a positive trade outcome, made money, but this could be the beginning of the end of the trader’s career. As we have already stated, mistakes must only be related to the violation of rules a trader trades by. All these mistakes were directly related to the signals given by a system, but the same is applied when getting out of a trade. There are also mistakes related to following a trading plan. For example, risking more money on a given trade than the amount the trader should have risked and many more. Most mistakes can be avoided by first having a trading plan. A trading plan includes the system: the criteria we use to get in and out the market, the money management plan: how much we will risk on any given trade, and many other points. Secondly, and most important, we need to have the discipline to follow strictly our plan. We created our plan when no trade was placed on, thus no psychology barriers were up front. So, the only thing we are certain about is that if we follow our plan, the decision taken is on our best interests, and in the long run, these decisions will help us have better results. We don’t have to worry about isolated events, or trades that could had give us better results at first, but then they could have catastrophic results in our trading career. How to deal with mistakes There are many possible ways to properly manage mistakes. We will suggest the one that works better for us. Step one: Belief change. Every mistake is a learning experience. They all have something valuable to offer. Try to counteract the natural tendency of feeling frustrated and approach mistakes in a positive manner. Instead of yelling to everyone around and feeling disappointed, say to yourself “ok, I did something wrong, what happened? What is it? Step two: Identify the mistake made. Define the mistake, find out what caused the mistake, and try as hard as you can to effectively see the nature of that mistake. Finding the mistake nature will prevent you from making the same mistake again. More than often you will find the answer where you less expected. Take for instance a trader that doesn’t follow the system. The reason behind this could be that the trader is afraid of loosing. But then, why is he or she afraid? It could be that the trader is using a system that does not fit him or her, and finds difficult to follow every signal. In this case, as you can see, the nature of the mistake is not in the surface. You need to try as hard as you can to find the real reason of the given mistake. Step three: Measure the consequences of the mistake. List the consequences of making that particular mistake, both good and bad. Good consequences are those that make us better traders after dealing with the mistake. Think on all possible reasons you can learn from what happened. For the same example above, what are the consequences of making that mistake? Well, if you don’t follow the system, you will gradually loose confidence in it, and this at the end will put you into trades you don’t really want to be, and out of trades you should be in. Step four: Take action. Taking proper action is the last and most important step. In order to learn, you need to change your behavior. Make sure that whatever you do, you become “this-mistake-proof”. By taking action we turn every single mistake into a small part of success in our trading career. Continuing with the same example, redefining the system would be the trader’s final step. The trader would put a system that perfectly fits him or her, so the trader doesn’t find any trouble following it in future signals. Understanding the fact that the outcome of any trade has nothing to do with a mistake will open your mind to other possibilities, where you will be able to understand the nature of every mistake made. This at the same time will open the doors for your trading career as you work and take proper action on every mistake made. The process of success is slow, and plenty of times it is attributed to repeated mistakes made and the constant struggle to get past these mistakes, working on them accordingly. How we deal with them will shape our future as a trader, and most importantly as a person.

         
    Trading the forex your most profitable investment opportunity

     

    Forex stands for the Foreign Exchange market, or Forex (FX). The foreign exchange market (FOREX) is the largest financial market in the world, with a volume of over $1.5 trillion daily in the US alone; more than three times the total amount of the US Equity and Treasury markets combined. Traditionally, investors only way to gain access to the foreign exchange market was through banks that transacted large amounts of currencies for commercial and investment uses. Now because of federal rule changes, Forex trading is no longer a monopoly of the banks and investment houses, that means you too can enter and profit from the largest financial market in existence. Forex trading is an alternative to the unpredictable fluctuations and ups and downs of the other markets. Trading is about making money and the opportunities in this market are boundless, they far exceed the slim pickings in the other markets. Today, foreign exchange market brokers are able to offer small traders like you and me the opportunity to buy or sell any number of smaller money lots with the option to trade them at the same rates and price movements as the big players who once dominated the market. You can start with as little as US $ 300 in your account, and you would be surprised to find out that trading currencies is far less risky than any other kind of trading. And that is why before long all the other traders won’t fail to discover the FX market and the immense wealth creation possibilities it has to offer. This is your time to get in one of the biggest, and most exciting, opportunities that has come along in decades, and you can learn forex trading strategies easily, there is even a free course “Forex Freedom” you can grab and start on your way to Forex profits. Still need more reasons to give the Forex trading your full attention? There are many different advantages to trading forex instead of futures or stocks: 1.Lower margin The margin requirements that are needed for trading futures are usually around 5% of the full value of the holding, or 50% of the total value of the stocks, the margin requirements for forex are about 1%. For example, the margin required to trade foreign exchange is $1000 for every $100,000. That means trading forex, your money can play with 5 times as much value of product as a futures trader’s, or 50 times more than a stock trader’s. When you are trading on margin, this can be a very profitable but it’s important that you understand the risks that are involved as well. Here is where a great Forex trading course comes in to help and support you all the way to real profits. 2.

Currency trading is a worldwide inter-bank market that allows buyers to find sellers in an instant. 3. Limited risk and guaranteed stops When you are trading futures, your risk can be unlimited. For example, if the price for an item falls dramatically, you can’t leave your position and this could wipe out the entire equity in your account as a result. If the price keeps falling, you have to find more money to make up for the deficit in your account. 4. 24 hours marketplace With futures, you are generally limited to trading only during the few hours that each market is open in any one day. Unlike other financial markets, the Forex market has no physical location, no central exchange. It operates through an electronic network of banks, corporations and individuals trading one currency for another. Forex market operates 24/5. You can trade any time you like from Monday to Friday. 5. Free marketplace Foreign exchange is perhaps the largest market in the world about $ 1,9 trillion and with the huge number of people trading forex around the globe, it is very hard for even governments to control the price of their own currency, the prices are fair. 6.You Can make money in rising and falling markets There are no restrictions to sell currencies short, which means that with forex currency trading you can make money just as easily in rising and falling markets.

    Trading the forex market offers you huge leverage on your time and money

     

    More and more people are beginning to hear about FOREX trading. FOREX stands for FOreign Currency EXchange Market. It was once available only to the large banks, multinational corporations, governments, and other financial markets and institutions; however it was de-regulated in 1997, and now anyone may participate. Many with experience in stocks and/or commodities trading who have then discovered FOREX, prefer it for its many advantages over stock and commodity trading. Many who have never invested before are also now successfully trading the FOREX market. The FOREX market is open 24 hours a day, except weekends, so you can participate whenever you have time. Trading is now done online and transactions are almost instantaneous. The FOREX market offers 100:1 leverage, so you can control large amounts of money on the market while using much less of your own money. You can start with a mini-account for as little as $300, and with a strategy, steadily build your account and confidence, until you can open a regular account. You can grow that $300 seed to substantially more money in 6 months with the right application of sound strategy. And, you can set the level of risk you're willing to accept; and you can do this with very minimal risk. FOREX is the world's largest, most liquid trading market. It is the best trending market, moving in the same direction (up or down) over 78% of the time, and you can learn to profit on either trend. Technical analysis works very well in this market, and there are many tools that aid in this. Because most FOREX trading is focused on 7 major currencies, you have much less to learn than when trading stocks or commodities. Of course you'll want to learn as much as you can about FOREX, but this can be done to your satisfaction much sooner than you might think. There are many training courses and also lots of free information available on this subject. FOREX trading is fun and challenging, and FOREX is quickly becoming one of the investing world's hottest, most rewarding opportunities. Learn more about FOREX, and take your wealth development into your own hands if you want to accumulate real wealth!

         
    Trading with root cause analysis

     

    If you have read my article on Pareto charts this will probably make more sense to you. Root cause analysis is another tool that traders could benefit from. I know that some of these things do not seem trading related, but you can improve results with them. When all is said and done results are what matter anyway. On your pareto chart you have identified weaknesses in your trading style. Root cause analysis is how you start to fix them. First we need to identify the most prominant cause of failed trades. Once this is identified you will need to write it at the top of a separate sheet of paper. Below this you will ask a question. What caused this reaction? Then you list the answer. Now ask yourself the same thing about this new answer. List it. You will continue to ask yourself this for each new answer, until you cannot come up with an answer. Generally, you will only be able to go about 3-5 levels deep. This is your root cause. This is the start of the path that leads to the losing trade. When you have reached the root cause you have one more question. How do I avoid this root problem. If it is a emotional problem maybe, you need to work to become more self aware of the feeling that starts a process of bad decisions. When this feeling starts to erupt, just exit your positions and and stop trading for the day. It is better not to trade, than trade and lose. If the problem is psychological, maybe you need to find a routine that works for you. A good example of this is a baseball pitcher. A major league pitcher has all the physical requirements, or he would not be in the majors. Some pitchers have been known for having quirky routines they go through on each pitch. There are some pitchers who have had terrible seasons because they lost something in their routine. Their physical attributes have not changed, only their mindset. Their routine is only psychological, but the results of it being off are all to real. Of course, if it ends up being the system the fix is obvious, scrap it.

         
    Trading with support and resistance

     

    Support and resistance has long been a staple in trading indicators. Support and resistance is a simple concept that has its roots in the supply and demand theory. When looking at a chart you see price action that appears to be random but, by adding support and resistance theory to the equation you will see that the price movements are not always random. I first noticed this before I started trading. I used to watch the stock ticker on T. V. and over time I noticed that at certain price levels on the Dow Jones Industrial Average would seem to have difficulty breaking throughsome price levels. It was more obvious when the price tried to move through round numbers. As prices go up there comes a point when the traders feel that the price is to high and the buyers will slow. This is called resistance. Generally, for a price area to be called resistance you will have to have 3 or more hits on or very near the same price. The same rules apply to support but, this term describes the failure of prices to continue going down. Once a price goes down to a point the prices is viewed as being a good deal. Much the same way a store puts things on sale. When the sale price in effect their are usually more buyers willing to purchase. The markets work the same way. The more hits on a price level the stronger that support or resistance is believed to be. Many times there may be no good explanation for a support or resistance level other than people believe in it. Often this is enough to cause the market to stall or reverse direction. Perception is often the motivation behind the markets price movements. I have saw prices move drastically because of rumors. On the other hand I have seen very little movement in prices following what you would think to be an important announcement.

         
    Understanding forex 1 what is forex

     

    This is a series of articles about The Foreign Exchange Market. You will learn here what Forex is , how it works and how profitable it can be. The whole series contain the following articles . . . 1. What is Forex 2. Technical analysis 3. Fundamental analysis 4. Money management 5pound interest What is Forex? The word Forex is an acronym for The Forex Exchange Market. This is the most liquid market on the world where you can trade or exchange one currency for another. For example, if you think that the Euro will appreciate in value and you have US dollars, you can trade the dollars for the Euros. If you are right and the Euro appreciates in value in relationship with the dollars, then you can close the position realizing a profit. That’s the basic idea behind the Spot Forex Market. This is an interbank system which means that it is not centralized. There is no central exchange where currencies are traded. It is a global market. You can trade Forex online 24 hours per day, 6 days per week. This market emerged at the beginning of the 70's decade. The reason was that currencies where not backed up by gold anymore. They began floating freely. Their value depended on forces of supply and demand due to economic factors, speculation, etc. This originated the Forex Market. You can trade Forex on the Internet as I said above. There are many brokers like oanda that allow you to open an account with just $300 to $500 and start trading online. You can also get a demo account first and trade with play money just to “test the waters” and see if you like this market or not. Demo accounts are free with most brokers. Some brokers offer demo accounts which expire within 30 days while others never expire. It is important to trade on paper, because you can test your strategies and see if they work or not. Trading Forex is risky, but it can be very profitable too. You can trade at anywhere from 20: 1 to 400: 1 leverage. This means that the broker will lend you more money than you have on the account to trade. For example, let’s say that a broker allows you to trade at 100: 1 leverage. If you use all the leverage, for every dollar that you have on the account you can trade 100. Let’s say that you have $1,000. With $1,000 at 100: 1 you can trade $100,000 worth of dollars in exchange for other currencies. You multiply your trading potential a lot. This allows you to realize bigger profits, but you also incur in bigger risks. Let me show you an example. Let’s say that you have 100: 1 leverage on the account and you trade at full leverage with $1,000. The EUR/USD pair (Euro/US Dollar) is trading at 1.2500. So, you enter a position on this pair. Let’s say that you are long. If the market moves in your favor by just one cent (1.2600), you will double your money and end up with $2,000 on the account. If the market moves against you by just one cent (1.2400), you will lose all the money that you have on the account or most of it depending on the broker you are trading with. This can happens really quick. The market can move this much in a matter of minutes or hours. This is what makes Forex very profitable, but also very volatile. I don’t know if novice traders can understand the magnitude of what I am saying here. Many people get into Forex trading only seeing half of the truth. They get pulled into this market by all the hype flying around it. I do believe that no other market in the world offer the opportunity to make money like this market does. On the other hand, there are some risks involved. It is important for new traders to trade on paper first before compromising real capital. We learn doing. I didn’t learn many basic concepts about this market until I started trading with a demo account. Now, let me explain other important facts. The Spot Forex Market is traded in currency pairs. Whenever you enter a position you trade one currency for another. For example if you buy EUR/USD you are buying Euros and selling US Dollars. If you sell EUR/USD you are selling Euros and buying US Dollars. When you enter a position, you can not trade other currency pairs unless you have additional funds on your account, but you can trade several currency pairs at the same time as long as you have enough margin/funds to trade. If you have never traded Forex before, you can see how all this works when you practice with a demo account. Another thing that you would like to know is that Forex is traded in pips. Your profit on every trade depends on many aspects. One of those aspects are pips. Another one is how much leverage you are using per trade. A pip is the minimum unit that the price of a currency pair can move. For example, in the case of the EUR/USD a pip is equal to 0.0001. If the price is at 1.2500 and it moves to 1.2501, it moved one pip. If it moves from 1.2500 to 1.2600 it moves 100 pips, like in the example above. Now, how much you make on every trade depends on how many pips you make and how much money you invested on that trade. Also, what is the leverage for that account. If you trade at full leverage with a 100: 1 leverage account and you trade $1,000, if the market moves 50 pips in your favor, then you will make $500. This can happen within just a few minutes after you enter your order. Most experienced traders wouldn’t recommend you to trade this way though. The reason is that if the market moves against you, then you could lose everything within minutes. It is better to have lower profit goals for every single trade and compound your profits over time. Money management principles stay that it is better to never risk more than 1% - 3% of your capital, specially if you are an inexperienced trader. This is something that I will explain more under other article of this series. Well, I hope this information have been helpful to you. This was an introduction to the Forex Market. You can read more about Forex on my other articles. EasyWebRiches © 2006

         
    Understanding forex 2 technical analysis

     

    This is a series of articles about The Foreign Exchange Market. You will learn here what Forex is , how it works and how profitable it can be. The whole series contain the following articles . . . 1. What is Forex 2. Technical analysis 3. Fundamental analysis 4. Money management 5pound interest Technical Analysis. Unless you are new to trading you probably know already that technical analysis is a method of forecasting future price movement of commodities, securities, etc (in this case currencies) based on chart analysis, pattern formations, technical indicators, etc. Forex can be traded technically and in my opinion it is quiet predictable. No trading strategy will work 100% of the time. That’s why you need proper money management techniques. Anyway, technical analysis is important to determine where the price of the currencies is going, also when to enter and exit positions. There are different technical analysis techniques that you can implement to your trading strategies. I show here how to use technical indicators which is a very common technique among most technical traders. There are many technical indicators. Some of them are more common and useful than others. In my opinion you won’t need dozens of them to know when to enter or exit a trade. It is about quality, not quantity. I think though that it is better to relay on a few indicators than in only one. If you trade based on the signals of only one indicator, you may miss some important information about the market that other technical indicators would reveal to you. By using a few technical indicators instead of only one, you can make more educated and accurate choices. So, I will show you here some very common technical indicators and how they are used to forecast market prices. Remember that technical indicators are the basis of technical analysis systems. You can implement three different aspects to your trading systems. One is technical analysis as I explain here. The other is fundamental analysis. The third one is money management as I explain in my other articles on this series. Common technical indicators and their definitions: 1. Average Directional Index - ADX An indicator used in technical analysis to determine the strength of a prevailing trend. 2. Exponential Moving Average - EMA A type of moving average that is similar to a simple moving average, except that more weight is given to the latest data. 3. Moving Average Convergence Divergence - MACD A trend-following momentum indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages of prices. 4. Bollinger Band A band plotted two standard deviations away from a simple moving average. 5. Fibonacci - There are many Fibonacci indicators like the following . . . a. Fibonacci Time Zones b. Fibonacci Fan c. Fibonacci Channel d. Fibonacci Arc c. Fibonacci Clusters d. Fibonacci Numbers/Lines e. Fibonacci Retracement f. Fibonacci Extensions 6. Relative Strength Index - RSI A technical momentum indicator that compares the magnitude of recent gains to recent losses in an attempt to determine overbought and oversold conditions of an asset. 7. Stochastic Oscillator A technical momentum indicator that compares a security's closing price to its price range over a given time period. 8. Williams %R In technical analysis, this is a momentum indicator measuring overbought and oversold levels, similar to a stochastic oscillator. You can learn more about these technical indicators and how they are used if you visit investopedia. Most technical analysis systems combine at least a few technical indicators to forecast the market. I think that proper technical analysis skills are an important aspect of most successful trading systems. You can learn more about Forex and trading systems from my other articles on this series. I covered here important aspects of technical analysis, but most successful trading systems need some fundamental analysis and/or money management too. EasyWebRiches © 2006

         
    Understanding forex 3 fundamental analysis

     

    This is a series of articles about The Foreign Exchange Market. You will learn here what Forex is , how it works and how profitable it can be. The whole series contain the following articles . . . 1. What is Forex 2. Technical analysis 3. Fundamental analysis 4. Money management 5pound interest Fundamental analysis. Forex fundamental analysis strategies consist on studying economic factors of a country to forecast the future value of its currency. This includes, but it is not limited to: economic condition, monetary policy, etc. Fundamental analysis focuses on studying economic, social and political factors that drive supply and demand. Some important indicators are interest rates, inflation and unemployment. Political decisions are also important. Bellow you can find some of the most important fundamental analysis indicators and their definition. You can learn more about these indicators and how they are used on investopedia. Producer Price Index - PPI A family of indexes that measures the average change in selling prices received by domestic producers of goods and services over time. PPI measures price change from the perspective of the seller. Consumer Price Index - CPI A measure of price changes in consumer goods and services such as gasoline, food and automobiles. Sometimes referred to as "headline inflation". Gross Domestic Product - GDP The monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period, though GDP is usually calculated on an annual basis. It includes all of private and public consumption, government outlays, investments and exports less imports that occur within a defined territory. It is important that you pay attention to financial news when you trade using a fundamental analysis trading system. You can find financial news on the following websites . . . 1. bloomberg 2. businessweek 3. money. cnn 4. economist 5. news. ft/markets/currencies 6. fxstreet Fundamental analysis is very important as you can see, but it is also important to implement some other techniques on your trading strategies.

    Understanding forex 4 money management

     

    This is a series of articles about The Foreign Exchange Market. You will learn here what Forex is , how it works and how profitable it can be. The whole series contain the following articles . . . 1. What is Forex 2. Technical analysis 3. Fundamental analysis 4. Money management 5pound interest Money Management. This is one of the most important aspects of a good trading system. Even if your market forecasts are accurate, you may still not be profitable in the long run unless you implement proper money management techniques. Money management refers to how you manage your trading capital. It has to do with how much money you invest on each trade. Also, how much do you expect to make on each trade compared to how much you are risking. Furthermore, you can also use different kinds of orders that allow you to manage your trades automatically like stop loss, limit order and trailing stop. In my opinion the two more important aspects of money management are position sizing and expectancy. Position sizing refers to the size of your positions. You should not risk more than 1% - 2% per trade. Expectancy refers to how much do you expect to make vs how much you are willing to lose. The expectancy should be always positive. For example, if you enter a position and you expect to realize a 50 pips profit while you are willing to lose only 15 pips, that’s positive expectancy. The example above means that you can be wrong three times in a row and still be profitable the fourth time. A method to implement positive expectancy on your trading strategies is by using trailing stops. I will explain this now and the other orders that I mentioned above. Let’s start with a stop loss order. This one helps you automatically close a losing position and prevent it from decreasing your total trading capital. Why you need stop orders? Many things could go against you and make you lose big time. The platform you are treading on could freeze. The place/computer you are trading from could go off power. Market news could drive the price of currencies mad quickly. Do you get the point? Many people use stop loss orders just as an “insurance” against these events taking place. Something else a stop loss order could be good for is to establish an automatic trading system. Some trading systems do not require you to be in front of your computer all day. You can set them on autopilot and let the market/platform do its thing. If the market moves against you, the stop loss will be triggered and your losing position will be cancelled automatically. The second order mentioned above is the limit order. This one is good to automatically take a profit once the price of the currency pair has moved to a desired level. You can use a limit order for the same purpose you use a stop loss order. It is good to automate your trading in general. Once the target price is reached, the limit order will be triggered canceling your winning position and preventing it from turning into a losing position. Now, something very important about trading “cut your loses short, let your winners run.” Most traders do this the other way around. That’s why they lose in the long run. Some of the easiest ways you can implement this technique is by using a trailing stop. These kinds of orders let you get positive expectancy, which is one of the most important aspects about money management as mentioned above. A trailing stop is like a limit order and a stop order at the same time. For example, let’s say that you enter a position and the market moves in your favor. Then notice what happens. With a trailing stop you have a chance that you don’t have with a limit order. If the market keeps moving in the direction you expected, the trailing stop order will move with the market. This way there is no limit to how much profits you can get. On the other hand if after moving in your favor the trend retraces a certain percentage, the trailing stop will be triggered canceling the position and preventing it from turning into a losing trade. These are common techniques used in most successful trading systems. You can learn other important aspects about Forex like technical analysis and fundamental analysis from other articles on this series. EasyWebRiches © 2006

         
    Understanding forex 5 compound interest

     

    This is a series of articles about The Foreign Exchange Market. You will learn here what Forex is , how it works and how profitable it can be. The whole series contain the following articles . . . 1. What is Forex 2. Technical analysis 3. Fundamental analysis 4. Money management 5pound interest Compound Interest. As an investor, time can be your best friend once you learn how to use compound interest to your advantage. This is an important aspect of any trading systempounding your profits can make you very wealthy and help you increase your investment profits exponentially. The drawback of this technique is that you may also increase the risk. By reinvesting your gains you may multiply your profits but you can also suddenly lose everything. I will explain here how compounding can make you wealthy. Also I will describe some of the risks involved. This strategy may be suitable for some investors, but not for all. It is more like a long term strategy. Most traders or investors do not have the patience to undergo these kinds of strategies, but they could be quiet profitable. Remember this phrase: “Anything that can grow exponentially can explode.” By explosion I mean here fast multiplication, quick rate of growth. The important word is exponentially. If you could double your money ten times in a row, and you start with one thousand dollars, the tenth time you would be a millionaire. This means that if you invest $1,000 and double, then you invest the $2,000 and double it, then you do it again and again, you will be a millionaire by the time you double your money the tenth time. Can you realize the power of compound interest? We are not talking about a specific time frame above, but the average amount of time that takes to double your money is very important. For example, if you can double your money every month and you start with $1,000, it will take you less than a year to be a millionaire. Some people try to do this at Forex, but it is very, VERY risky. There are other more conservative goals though. For example, if you could double your money ($1,000) every 6 months, you would be a millionaire in about 5 years. If you could double your money ($1,000) every year, it would take you about 10 years to be a millionaire. Compound interest is one of the “secret paths” to wealth, but some people get greedy about it and lose their shirt. Also, there are some risks inherent on this technique that I will explain bellow. First let’s describe the rule of 72 which is very important to understanding how compounding your profits work. The rule of 72 is good for computing when your money will double at a given interest rate. If you want to find out how much would it take for your money to double, just divide the annual interest into 72. For example, if you get 12% on an investment and that rate stays constant, your money will double in 72 / 12 = 6 years. You can also compute the interest rate if you know how often your money will double. If you are told that your money will double every 5 years, the annual interest rate will be 72 / 5 = 14.4%. This is a rule of thumb. It gives approximate results. Now, compounding your profits at Forex can be risky. You can use proper money management techniques, like those I explain on other article of this series, to control some of the risk, but not all. That’s why it is important to “never trade more than what you can afford to lose.” The important question is to define whether this strategy is suitable for you or not. That’s up to you. Some traders and investors combine both, short term and long term strategies. They may also compound some of their profits. Whether you compound your profits or not, that’s your choice. My purpose on this article was to show you how important compound interest is and how profitable it can be. You can learn other trading strategies and aspects about trading Forex from my other articles. EasyWebRiches © 2006
