  1. Почему - Итак это последний месяц конкурса, и все ринулись писать статьи. К сожалению компания решила прикрыть много кункурсов, согласен. Мы не оправдали их надежд. В Бинарах все лупят нахаляву, порой у победителей смотришь стайтмент а там....... -1000% профита ))) а то и более, просто человек на удачу изо дня в день, пытался разогнать свой счет. то есть даблил-удваивал удачу. Если посмотреть то всего для победы нужна серия из 6 побед 1-2-4-8-12-16. Я все мечтал победить но увы. Теперь на реальные деньги страшнее. Конкурс статей в массе писатей пишут ни о чем. Технический анализ просто нужна удача и по возможности максимальное количество прогнозов. Тоже лотерея.

Trading Short term
Why trade?
Now it's a very important question to answer why you want to trade short term if you want to trade at all. Many people would come up with multiple justification to trade short term starting with making some spare money in spare time to just for the thrill of trying to predict the future. Now whatever the motivation behind your motive to start trading short term one has to be very clear that it's a damn risky thing to do with accompanying huge pressure on your mental and emotional skills. If one were to simply look on the statistics available on trader's behavior, a realization dawns that almost four in five people loose money in trading in currencies and CFDs. So statistically speaking there is no justification for a average person to start trading either for short term or the long term as it's a surest way to loose money. Now all it boils down to developing some special skills to be among the minorities who make money in trading. So it leads to the next question which of course is 'how?'
How to trade?
Now if you start searching for this answer after studying all the risk factors in trading you would be literally floded with the answers. That's a irony…

Introduction
Humans have really strong tendency to sell assets which brought them profit and avoid to sell those which has shown loss. This reaction is called disposition effect and has major impact on most of trader’s trades. To explain this situation, scientists said that, in general, we avoid grief caused by losing transaction and we are aiming to reach pride caused by wining one. The main question is: Does closing early profitable transaction and keep increasing loss make reasonable trading?

Defining the problem

Every trader should check if he or she undergoes a disposition effect. Identifying problem may help optimizing trader’s outcome.
There are three questions you have to answer and if you answered yes to one of these questions you probably ended up trapped in disposition effect, keeping open losing positions when loss is only increasing in time:
1. If the price will return from the loss to break even point I am going to sell this position.
2. Loss is so big at the moment so I won’t close position because rebuilding capital will take too much time.
3. I will keep losing position because loss is so big it cannot go any bigger further.

Spend more time managing your winners than losers. Stop loss orders work for losing trades and GTC orders work well to capture profit when you do not have time to stare at the tape action all day.

1. When did speculations begin and how?
ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ
During the so-called "Peace and War Studies" of World War II between the US government and Wall Street global financiers and some academics headed by Isaiah Bowman, then president of Johns Hopkins University, the most important decision was that the United States would be heir to the British Empire. The adoption of globalization as the choice of the new empire which is the colonialism in a new name and new tools, one of the decisions that one of the requirements of the empire of the age to be the currency of the global reserve currency. Therefore, the dollar was adopted instead of the sterling as the reserve currency. It was recommended that the IMF, the World Bank, the United Nations and the Free Trade Organization, which were not approved by Congress at the time, be replaced by GATT. These institutions were publicized in Bretton Woods in 1944.
In order to make the US dollar the global reserve currency, Bretton Woods also agreed on the fixed-exchange-rate regime, meaning that the national currency was fixed against the dollar at a fixed …

Nadin5794  Примерно все так и есть! Особенно когда ты трейдер со стажем!))) Но новичку нужен алгоритм действия! Иначе ему придется пройти поле граблей самому! Куда проще усвоить простые и понятные правила, когда они уже обличены в руководство к действию!)

Отличная статья для новичков. Полностью согласен. Только я бы сделал акцент на обязательности живого тестирования, которым многие (да и я в начале) пренебрегают. Так же просьба к автору по возможности давать статью и на языке оригинала. Думаю не все ее поймут на английском

1. Introduction:

Bollinger Bands are a volatility based indicator, developed by John Bollinger, which have a number of trading applications.
There are three lines that compose Bollinger Bands: A simple moving average (middle band) and an upper and lower band. These bands move with the price, widening or narrowing as volatility increases or decreases, respectively. The position of the bands and how the price acts in relation to the bands provides information about how strong the trend is and potential bottom or topping signals.
Bollinger Bands are used on all time frames, such as daily, hourly or five-minute charts. Bollinger Bands have two adjustable settings: the Period and the Standard Deviation. The Period is how many price bars are included in the Bollinger Band calculation. The number of periods used is often 20, but is adjusted to suit various trading styles.
2. what is consists of ? :

The Standard Deviation is typically set at 2.0, and determines the widths of the Bands. The higher the Standard Deviation, the harder it will be for the price to reach the upper or lower band. The lower the Standard Deviation the easier it is for price to “breakout” of the Bands.

1. Overview
After several publications on how to build strategies in Visual jforex and tracking of various strategies performances I decided to write one more article on several strategies usage at the same time. So in this publication I will cover 3 different strategies and its pros and cons on its usage simultaneously.
2. Strategies logic
There are 3 strategies working in different pairs: EUR/USD, USD/JPY and EUR/JPY.
All 3 strategies has very simple positions opening logic it uses 5 min. RSI to determine position opening. RSI thresholds are configurable and can be change on strategy start:
Thus simply if RSI is higher than threshold rsi_h strategy opens short position and if RSI is lower than threshold rsi_l strategy opens long position. Additionally there is check if spread is within acceptable range in order not to open positions then spread widens and also one more check is implemented which prevents increasing exposure in the same currency if certain position is already open. For example if there is already EUR/JPY long opened opening of EUR/USD long will be prevented by strategy only opening of EUR/USD short will be possible. This is realized in visual jforex in following w…
