Введение

Слышали об индикаторе Stochastic? Уверен, что да. Весьма полезный инструмент в толковых руках. В этой статье я расскажу о "стохастическом поглощении" и его применении в торговле на валютном рынке Форекс. В статье также будут отображены все возможные фильтры, которые помогут более продуктивно использовать данный метод торговли. Данный термин придумал я сам, поэтому статья уникальна по своей сути.
Рабочее пространство
Первым делом начнем с настройки рабочего стола. Нам потребуются четыре стандартных индикатора. Список индикаторов с настройками:
  • Скользящая средняя. Период 200. Красный цвет.
  • Скользящая средняя. Период 50. Синий цвет.
  • Stochastic. Период 5,3,3. Цвета синий и красный.
  • Stochastic. Период 21,3,3. Цвета зеленый и красный.

Так это должно все выглядеть на графике.
Работаем только на временных интервалах от четырех часов и выше. Ловим только чистый рынок, шум нам не нужен.
Фильтры

Как и в любой торговой стратегии у нас есть фильтры. В роли них выступают две скользящие средние с периодами 50 и 200.
Если скользящая с периодом 50 находится ниже скользящей с периодом 200, то движение нисходящее и мы будем искать вход только на продажу. Если же скользящая с периодом 50 ок…

In this article I want to show you how to pick the right price levels and how to trade from them. Most importantly I will show you how to implement this in the context of the price manipulation.
1.What is a price level.
First of all we need to understand what it is.
In my opinion it is something more than just a level where price changes direction. I think of it as a point where beliefs of a trader get manipulated. Those levels are constructed by big players such as market makers and institutional traders to trick others into placing orders that would be favorable for them.
When such an activity can be observed it can help us in predicting the potential price movements with a higher likelihood. If there would be no price levels there would be no point of interest and therefore no orders placed by traders.
Only two types of price levels exist.
These are horizontal and diagonal levels or better known as trend lines. There is one huge difference between them.
Horizontal price level can only be at a fixed price, and is not subject to change.
However diagonal trend lines don't have that fixed price, it can always change depending on the time of a touch. It means one more variable in the…

It’s a hard fact to swallow sometimes but the fact is that the markets are only 20% trade 80% speculation. I often find unless there is HUGE economic data a trend will not turn on sixpence. Common sense should always be applied as should the trend!
The above image is nothing special and can be commonly found though-out the FX market. The concept of stop hunting isn't a new one, and it should not be confined to the conspiracy files. It is something easily found on most charts and is easily exploited. Why is it easy? Because these pattern are easily seen on longer term charts and therefore harder to hide... You can’t hide a long term trend!
The best question to yourself is why would a trend suddenly spike or turn, take out stops and then continue with the original trend? We all know why! But we struggle to believe it because it goes against normal trading strategies.
The big players own the market, there is no point in arguing this fact, large players when in tandem will move markets; and always to their advantage. Why not spend 50 mil to move a pair to a price where you know there is 500 mil of stops and therefore cheap prices too take advantage of and send it in the other direct…

Magic Levels.
Price levels in most of the trading systems are the starting point for any trades to be made.
Traders are searching for levels, to enter the market depending on the approach, bounce or breakout,
to follow the trend, or against it, with a hope for a trend reversal.
And each trader is using tons of instruments to find this levels, like Fibonacci levels, peaks
and troughs during the specified price cycles, time cycles, Fibonacci cycles, levels confirmed by momentum
indicator, like RSI divergences for example etc...
So basically, there are a lot of ways to search for a levels to trade.
But a lot of traders are leaving aside one of the easiest applicable approaches,
which is giving most fundamentally, psychologically and historically based levels.
I call this approach "The magic levels".
Some traders would recognise it as a round price levels, or sometimes it called "Trading
round numbers". But there is a difference, which makes this approach more significant.
So with a hope that the article will be interesting for everyone, for a professional and for a
newbie, I have decided to write about it.

No matter what your trading approach is, you will use "levels" to enter the tr

1.0 What is Price Action and what is its Purpose?
There are different markets that cater to active trading and different concepts apply to these markets. Most of them are subject to interpretation, not to mention criticism, because they offer bits of information which may not be all truth. Most of these pieces of information only serve as predictions or projections, which means that they are uncertain, but this is not the case when it comes to price action.
Price action focuses only on past trading prices. Because these prices have already been traded, price action only offers traders information that is completely true. This does not make it the ultimate trading tool though and unless traders have special mental powers, they will have no ability to foretell future market occurrences. Every decision that they make will depend on how well they think they know the market and its participating companies.
Because of the uncertainty of risks that come with currency trading transactions, market participants prefer day-trades over prolonged asset accumulation. The concept of day-trading involves transactions that last from several minutes to several hours. Basically, day traders only hold…

traileriana avatar

Nice article, but could I suggest Shroom blots instead of the Fibonacci levels for setting the stop losses? ;)

Alternatively, one may use volatility to compute a sensible value, because that would actually make sense. Volatility  is also useful for deciding how much you want to risk (higher volatility => smaller amounts).

5 Ways to trading using Fibonacci levels ...... (Part 1)
Fibonacci levels
Has been the practice in the use of Fibonacci levels in Forex trading , is the use of the key Fibonacci levels to analyze price movements, and the possibility of taking a decision on entering the trade . In order to determine where the profit levels used by 38 , 50 and 62 ( % ) to correct the previous price movements .
Here are some important tips to use these levels :
1 ) Set the lines of Fibonacci retracement levels for use in trading.
2 ) Stretch the lines between the maximum and minimum points of dynamic price movement ( trend ) .
3 ) recommended to apply several Fibonacci levels (preferably , of course, painted in different colors ) on the chart with three or even four periods of time , to get clearer picture Andasthaddam the several levels of Fibonacci .
4) then analyze the levels of a diverse group of Fibonacci lines . In many cases , you can visually identify important on several levels , which coincide in different periods of time in more than a Time Frame . Here, you need to identify these areas and continue to work and plan for the trading of the existence of these specific subsidies and resistors …

This article will explain some useful factors to consider when trading based on the supply and demand methodology. I will provide a brief overview of supply and demand before delving into how to identify high probability levels from which to trade. Supply and Demand Overview The only reason why price moves in any and all markets is because of an imbalance in supply and demand. The greater the imbalance, the greater the move. Strong moves in price away from a level indicate that not all orders were filled. For example, at the origin of a supply level, there are not enough buy orders to fulfil the number of sell orders. This is why price moves away in such a strong fashion. When price returns to those levels, the novice traders are buying into an area where institutions have their sell orders. Institutions and professionals sell to the novices then there are no more buy orders so price must fall again. The opposite is true for demand levels. In both cases, the novice traders provide the liquidity the institutions need to get their orders out in the market. The best opportunities to profit in trading are where we can buy at the cheapest price possible (wholesale prices) and se…

What method do you use to determine how you draw the supply and demand rectangles in terms of which candle of each zone do you choose? For example (in the case of a supply zone) Sam Seiden uses the top of the highest candle and the lowest part of the body of the candle in the group whereas you seem to be random as to what points of the candle you choose to draw you rectangles? Can you please explain. Thank you Rob

MaximumLots avatar

Hi Robert4. Whilst I try to look for levels which are nice and neat, SD levels are not always presented in this way. I know that some of the rectangles in the article are not tightly up against the candles but sometimes the rectangle tools on platforms don't allow for that. Over time you just get a feel for how to draw the levels and where supply is. For example the H4 chart is also a swap zone which also adds confluence. I hope that helps

In my opinion there are three skills that every trader has to develop in order to be a succesfull live trader. 1. Technical skills and awearness of the environment that he is in.2. Mental skills (those are most  difficult to obtain because you can develop them trough experiance and self evaluation).3. Concentration (treating your trading as a business).The differance betwean trading with your own money and paper money is huge. First of all when you are trading paper money every desition that you make is widout any stress or fear. The desition that you take with real money is under pressure and fear. That makes a huge differace in the end results. I will give you my persona experiance as a live trader. I ve been trading forex for 4 5 years mostly with paper money. Lately ive been acheaving some consistant results in the trader contest and i decided to open a live account. I must tell you that troug the first week i made every rooky mistake that  a trader can make: overleveraging, not following the trade plan, not being abel to wait long enough so my position can unfold, placing too tight of a stop. I couldnt sleep some nights due to stress, i had sweaty palms almost always. Those mi…

I think there are a few more skills required. However, your description of the transition from demo to live trading is spot on. I suggest to novice traders to trade live (once they mastered the platform and their strategy) with the amount of $1000 i.e. 1 pip is around $0.1 depending upon the pair. This way one graduates slowly without being exposed to too much emotion. Plus, demo trading doesn’t have slippage which can substantially affect trading results (of course, depending upon the strategy). All the very best with your transition to live trading.

On my last article I've wrote about
price levels. I tried to give basic understanding
about levels and how I classify them. In this article I am writing
about “Price Action” levels and how to trade them. These levels
are found not using any calculations or complex formulas. They are
found only from a chart manually.
What
are Price Action levels
Forex market (the
same as any other market) is driven by supply and demand. If we have
more demand than supply – price rises, if more supply than demand –
price falls. In financial markets large funds, banks or corporations
have interest at particular price – they buy or sell currency. So
they create supply and demand zones. It is not possible to fill a
very large order at the same price – because large orders move
markets. So market movers fill as much as they can at predefined
level and when price moves out of bounds, they stop buying or selling
currency and wait for price to come back. These zones are formed with
stop loss or take profit orders too (basically stop order is also
selling or buying currency).
Correctly found
supply and demand zones always influence price. Even when we have a
very strong fundamental factor, price reacts to th…

   Greetings dear traders in the Dukascopy Community. This week we will watch the Key Levels on the 4 Hours charts for the Major Pairs: Eur/Usd (Fiber), Gbp/Usd (Cable), Usd/Chf (Swiss Franc), Usd/Jpy (Yen). After we will identify the main Key Levels that we have to watch for the Price Action Movement, we will be able to compose the bullish, bearish and mixed scenarios charts.   First of all You have to read the article that explains the Key Levels that I use in my Technical Analysis, to better understand the probabilities scenarios formation.   The main  instruments that we use for our analysis are : Monthly Pivots (Main, S1, S2, S3 and R1, R2, R3),Weekly Pivots (Main, S1, S2, S3 and R1, R2, R3),Simple Moving Averages - SMA - 30, 50, 100 and 200,Fibonacci Retracements,Supports and Resistences,Trendlines and Channel Trendlines (During the Trends and Sideways Movement).   I strongly believe that a technical analyst cannot predict the future Price Movement with high accuracy based only on the Hystorical price movement. That is why I propose multiple scenarios in my Analysis, Bullish scenarios, Bearish scenarios and Mixed Probabilities (when the Key Levels fail). All these probability…

@RobertBric: It's nothing funny about a Key-Level that is broken and confirmed and then with no signal from the volume analysis or candlestick formations, turn around against your position with a high momentum on low volume. This could be an argument against my hypothesis. :)

My manual trading system is 70% based on price levels. I think that most traders use some kind of levels – pivot points, Fibonacci retracements, trendlines, price action levels, etc. Of-course there are profitable traders, who do not use any kind of levels. But in my opinion levels do increase odds to be profitable. So in this article I will write about different price levels. I will try to give basic understanding about levels and how do I classify them. Methods of finding price levels 1. Every trader is aware of Fibonacci retracements. There is a GBPUSD 1 hour chart with Fibonacci retracements in an image below . As seen in the image some levels are respected, some not. Basically Fibonacci is nothing special or magic – it's just a tool to devide recent price move into percents. And according to Fibonacci some numbers are important in our universe. It's 0.236 (23.6%), 0.382 (38.2%), 0.5 (50%), 0.618 (61.8%) and so on. I would suggest adding 1.236 and 1.5 – this would add some more levels to watch. My observations show that these levels are respected often enough. 2. Pivot points. The name tells a lot – pivotal. This means, that pivot points are levels, where…

New month is here and I welcome you, traders, who came to read my fresh article! I must admit I had few topics on my mind, but after browsing last week's and month's charts, this one popped up as a shining star...Again, everything I will discuss is fully tradeable on live accounts, exhibits shown below will be this time again EUR/USD daily and 4h charts.PROBLEM:How often happens to you that you are staring on screen, watching the markets move price dramatically higher, but without you in that trade? Yeah, you just missed it and though you have been waiting patiently few days for optimal entry, you are not in. The price bounced off quite visible support level and now after few hours, it is 150 pips higher. This is so painful experience! We who trade know, that missing a good opportunity can be much worse than losing a trade. Just because if our regular SL is hit and we followed our tradeplan, it's simply ok and sooner or later we recover - depends on our trading experience of course. But when we miss an opportunity, we feel that markets owe us something. That pips had to be in our pocket - and we want it desperately back, thus later trying to get it and doing actions not fully sup…
