Forex indicators are mathematical functions based on the evaluation of the difference between bidding and price. While analyzing charts, a trader can predict whether a current trend will be the same or change somehow and thus create his own most profitable trading strategy. By using divergence indicators, traders may effectively reveal higher and lower momentum, and therefore the possible trend continuation or reversal. Effectively using the forex divergence trading system may be one of the best tools to forecast the situation and to achieve the best trading results.
1. What is divergence
2.Types of divergence
3. Indicators to use for Divergence Trading
4. Rules for Determining Divergence
5.Divergence Trading – Some important points
It is an age-old concept that was developed by Charles Dow and mentioned in his Dow Tenets. The most important of all is when Dow found out that when there was a divergence between the two, it presented a possible change in the markets. For example, when the Dow Industrials made new highs and when the transportation index failed to make a high it indicated that there was some discrepancy. This formed the basis …

Traders emerges and vanishes with couple of months and they go back to their normal work saying trading isn’t for me. Initially they thought Trading is like playing kids game by watching YouTube videos, reading some old/outdated techniques but reality is two edged sword it will cut you from both side. After some years some traders will come back by collecting their hard earned money to take revenge but as usual they will cut and lose never come back to Trading again in their life.
Dukascopy observed above scenarios and their built University (Dukascopy Contest) for people like us who don’t have knowledge and investment on Trading but Why so many Contests?

Trader Contest:

Trading is like one Country and trading contest is like president of that nation, he is the one who drive the country but at the same we need other ministers (Other contests) as well to make a country successful in long way. He needs idea of respective minster to make power/critical decision ( ex: Gold market is going down, what it implies and how its co-related to country like USA and how to get profit from it) in critical time to make it country very successful.

We are in the Forex market to make money but all of us know it's easier said than done. The most important factor which ultimately makes or breaks the trading career is the trading framework using which we carry out the trades. Success in trading comes if the technique we are using to undertake any trade is sound. If we have faith in the framework we are using the most of the decisions will be rational and we will be less prone to take decision based on the emotional impulses.
Now that I have tested some success in Forex market I tried to look back on the things I have done right and things I have done wrong. In process I realized if we use multiple things to validate our single trade then probability of trade going right can rise to as much as 75% to 80%. Here I will be providing information on how we can use the various forums of Dukascopy Forex community to our advantage. The tools such as Visual J forex platform, trade feed of trader contest and Signal provider contest, views of fellow traders on important fundamental events listed for the day; can together help us in deciding which trade to choose and when to keep out of market.
Let us now look at how we can use each platform …

CCI Indicator
The CCI indicator is known as the Commodity Channel Index and this is an indicatorthat is developed by Donald Lambert.I will not bother you with the calculation of this indicator because your trading platform can automatically help you to calculate and plot out the indicator. What I am going to share with you today is what exactly this indicator can do for you and how you can integrate it to your trading plan.For this CCI indicator, it will come with +100 and-100 levels. Most of the time, this indicator will move in between the +100 and-100 levels and it will exceed the levels for about 20 to 25% of the time.Here is what you can use the CCI for:
1) As a buy and sell signal – Whenever you see the CCI moving above the +100 level,you are in fact in a period of strong uptrend and this is the time you can enter a LONG trade. Once the CCI moves back to the +100 level, you should then exit your trade.However when you see the CCI moving below the -100 level, you are in a strong downtrend period and you can enter a SHORT trade. Similar to the above LONGtrade, you should exit your trade once the CCI move up to the -100 level.
From the picture above, you can see that the mark…

One of the most popular contests in Dukascopy is Fundamental Analysis. May be that is because it looks very easy at the beginning. But experienced members of the community already know that it is not easy as it seems. Of course for some it is just gambling. Some just follow majority, others go against majority, even some people predict in one direction. I decided to share my way of prediction in Fundamental analysis.
1) Analyzing fundamental indicators
First of all we are looking into historical data of the indicator. Most websites with economic calendar provide historical data and charts of economical indicators. You can use Dukascopy economical calendar or other websites. I mostly use calendar.
By checking historical data we are looking for trends, cycles, seasonal patterns. Is it rising or falling? How the data behaved this time in previous years?
IMPORTANT! - Forecast numbers are very important. Does it supports the trend or is against the trend? Is it too high or too low? Market ignores small differences in trends but surprisingly different results can shake the market.
2) Trend making and changing factors
It is very important to pay attention to…

In this topic we will talk about the expected movement for the pair EURUSD , Based on fundamental analysis and technical,
Fundamental analysis:
Next week (November 14 to November 18) we have several important news,
we must focus on jobs news and CPI, Because the Fed will focus on the decision to raise interest rates
If released in a positive way We must think about selling the euro In the medium term and vice.
Other news will be a short-term impact
About interest rates, in my view it will be Hike in December
Technical analysis:
We will use the waveform analysis in the analysis,
In the weekly time frame, price is in sideways direction And it did not come out yet, The chart shows us the model triangle.
If the price level exceeding trend line and Shut down the level of 1.0800 , We made sure from the beginning of the downward trend.
In the daily time frame , we have in the chart sideways direction but Inclined for landing,
So we say that the trend has become bearish we need Close down the level of 1.0840 to start selling
but if the price close above trend line the trend is become bullish so we can start buying

В последнее время стало модным писать о конкурсе фундаментального анализа, поэтому хочу вставить свои «5 копеек». Многие участники сообщества периодически высказывают предположение, что временной промежуток в 10 минут слишком мал, чтобы в полной мере повлиять на движение соответствующей валютной пары.
В этой статье приведены результаты небольшого исследования, призванного выяснить - так ли это на самом деле?
Особенности подбора данных для исследования
Вначале из экономического календаря были взяты наиболее значимые события за 2016 г.
Затем изъяты следующие типы новостей:
  • Новости, эффект которых нельзя измерить математически или не дающие мгновенного влияния на валютные пары (выступления глав центробанков, финансовых чиновников, протоколы заседаний комиссий по денежно-кредитной политике и т.п.);
  • События, актуальные значения которых совпали с прогнозами аналитиков (в основном, процентные ставки, ВВП, различные индексы инфляции);

В прошлом году я принимала участие в конкурсе Мисс Дукаскопи, , но еще хотелось попробовать свои силы во многих других интересных конкурсах, таких как конкурс трейдеров, бинарных опционов, дневных опционов и др.
К сожалению, участие в конкурсе Мисс отбирало у меня примерно по 4-5 часов в день, поэтому старалась искать способы, которые бы позволяли участвовать в других трейдерских соревнованиях с минимальными затратами времени.
Один из моих любимых конкурсов – это конкурс фундаментального анализа. На странице «Активность в конкурсах» результаты на протяжении 11 месяцев участия выглядят следующим образом:
Система, применяемая в конкурсе ФА, в настоящий момент, дает 52,3% (иногда доходило до 60%) правильных ответов. Мои друзья-трейдеры предложили способы адаптации этой системы к конкурсам трейдеров и бинарных опционов.
В этой статье попытаюсь поделиться своим опытом «торговли на новостях» в конкурсе трейдеров.
Что такое «Торговля на новостях»?
Важнейшие экономические и политические новости оказывают огромное воздействие на движения цен на валютном рынке. Поэтому система «торговли на новостях» приобрела широкую популярность как для опытных тр…

Уважаемые участники сообщества умных людей Dukascopy, хотел бы поделиться с Вами небольшим исследованием результатов голосования конкурса фундаментального анализа. На это исследование меня подвигло прочтение статьи участника сообщества salamandra "фундаментальный анализ - бинарные опционы". В статье приводилось использование оценки перевеса голосования для открытия сделки в бинарных опционах в направлении, за которое в конкурсе фундаментального анализа проголосовало большинство. Меня заинтересовали следующие вопросы - действительно ли большинство чаще угадывает направление движения курса после публикации новости, чем меньшинство, и , если чаще, то насколько. Именно на эти вопросы я и попытаюсь ответить.
Данные для статистической оценки

Мною были собраны данные о 201 событии конкурса фундаментального анализа с 6.10.2015 по 8.01.2016, включая результаты голосования, а также результаты самих событий. Фиксировалось количество проголосовавших за рост курса, количество проголосовавших за падение курса, за какое направление голосовало большинство (в случае равенства голосов, большинство не фиксировалось) и собственно результат события - рост или падение курса. Полученные значения…

A part of the events that went against the majority were probably the ones that were priced in, as you've already pointed out. I would say expanding the sample would probably lower the ratio but one would need to test it. Interesting content, great explanation and very well written!

Dear community members,
In this article, I shall reveal my winning strategies used in fundamental analysis contest. I hope you will also gain some insights on approaching trading from fundamental analysis perspective.I am a regular participant in the Fundamental Analysis contest. I have won many prizes. You can see my contest performance below.
So, let's begin !!!
(1) Knowing the big picture from current bias of central banks
My first strategy is based on deciphering current bias of central banks which will help you in correctly assessing the outcome of many economic indicators.
But firstly, let us understand the impact of central banks on currency exchange rates. Currency exchange & interest rates are highly correlated to each other. By controlling interest rates, central banks can control both inflation & exchange rate levels. Higher interest rates offer lenders a higher return relative to other economies of the world. Therefore, higher interest rates attract external foreign capital & cause the currency exchange rate to rise. The opposite relationship exists for decreasing interest rates - that is, lower interest rates tend to decrease exchange rates due to flight of externa…
