Introduction:

Every time brokers or market makers announces about new financial or trading tool in their system or platforms, discussions begin about the new trading tool, is beneficial for me? What is difference between it and my old trading tool? or which is better, sure when broker announces new trading tool, it not for luxury, sure that when different tools available, brokers attract more traders, because more trading tools and options means that you satisfy’s more traders so diversity is so important for brokers.
Trading Forex using margins:

My topic is not to talk about Forex, but the summary here as preface for my topic, simply when you are using Forex using margins, you will buy or sell an instrument, before you enter a trade, you should know what is your target for the trade (profit target) and you should decide what is the price level you should be out from the trade (stop loss).
As example, you Buy 10,000 EUR/USD at market price 1.1300 with profit target at 1.1350 and with stop loss At 1.1250, that means that it price reached 1.1350 then you gain 50 pips = 50 $, if reached 1.1250 that means you lost 50 pips = 50$, if stop…

INTRODUCTION
DUKASCOPY BANK SA is in the process of introducing a new product, namely; Binary Options. Presently this product is available on demo trading only. According to wikipedia, a binary option is a type of option where the payout ratio is either some fixed amount of some asset or nothing at all. Binary options can be bought on virtually any financial product and can be bought in both directions of trade either by buying a “Call”/“Up” option or a “Put”/“Down” option.
The options are binary because there are only two possible outcomes. Essentially then, you either win a predetermined amount or you lose the value of your bet/investment.
In this article, I will present a strategy to help us make profits consistently while trading binary options.
DUKASCOPY BANK has published on their website some information regarding the new product; and also launched a contest based on the same. Part of that information is quoted here below.

INTRODUCTION In order to know if you are making progress in any activity, you need to be able to measure that progress. An athlete keeps training in order to better his/her performance. For example, Kenyan champion David Rudisha, whose picture appears below, is always training to improve his performance. Recently, at the London Olympics, he broke his own 800 metres record – and also set a new world record. A businessperson uses various tools to measure profitability which is the main indicator of progress in any business activity. Now, trading is not only a business activity; but it is also akin to athletics or sports. Like an athlete, the astute trader continuously aims to improve himself being fully cognisant of the psychological nature of trading. It is imperative therefore that you, as a trader, are able to objectively measure your progress. In this article, I will review common profitability measurement ratios. Thereafter, I will introduce a new and very useful ratio which I have called Captain’s Profitability Ratio. A REVIEW OF COMMON PROFITABILITY RATIOS We will now consider three common ways of expressing the profitability of a trading plan. 1) Reliability of entry s…

At first I was a bit confused because you use a different terminology compared to what is commonly used (RES is win ratio, and P2L is profit factor), but I like your CPR :) Good article, mathematics are essential in trading.

Introduction In my October 2012 article, I dwelt on the need to keep the trading activity simple, hence the acronym KISS. There are countless exhortations, persuasions, ideas and downright con games all over the internet and other media – all seeking to show you how to make money trading forex. I have decided to blow against the wind by submitting an article on HOW TO LOSE MONEY trading forex! That is what the majority of retail traders do – lose money every day. However, few understand why they keep losing money. In this article, we will consider various ways through which traders lose money consistently. Hopefully, by doing the opposite, traders will actually make money – which is what we all want to do. Listed below are some excellent ways of lossing money while trading the forex market. 1) Overtrading The cost of trading is usually seen in terms of spreads and commissions. The amount of this trading expense is proportional to the number and size of trades, within any period. The more the volume and number of trades, the more money you are going to lose through spreads and commissions. Overtrading or trading more trades per day than you should, will certainly help you to lose …

Thank you charmtrader for your insightful comment. Actually I deliberately chose that SCARING title to provoke readers into seeing how our bad trading habits result in consistent loss of money - over and over again.

Completely agree with all 10 reasons, and I actually think the title is a good one, it's provocative and curiosity-inducing :) I'll just focus on point #9, it is a very good strategy, picking tops and bottoms, assuming you have a crystal ball... ;) If you don't have one, then you're on the way to financial ruin, just look at the yen pairs at the moment, how much money has been lost by people trying to guess where the trend is going to end? I don't see the logic in putting yourself in front of a moving train, but many people still believe in that misguided "strategy".

I agree with your points, just the second one caught my eye - analysis can be overdone in smallest tf's and overlooked in biggest ones. But point is to analyse S/R and S/D zones, PA and other levels - not the indicators.. .
