Вступление:
Как и многие из вас я часто смотрел на конкурс стратегий и завидовал тем парням и девченкам которые там принимают участие. Где-то в середине очередного месяца принимал решение вплотную заняться изучением jforex visual чтобы быть готовым к старту очередного конкурса. Решение принимал, и даже иногда запускал, но все это казалось мне не посильным в изучении и восприятии. Так месяцы превращались в годы, а я все никак не продвигался в своем стремлении.
И главная причина, как я выяснил позже, была в моем не правильном подходе к решению этой проблемы. На валютном рынке я не считал себя новичком. Уже не плохо разбирался в фундаментальных понятиях и технических приемах при этом понимал логику как чужих, так и своих торговых стратегий. А вот реализовать эту логику в jforex visual по прежнему для меня оставалось проблемой. И здесь не причина в малом количестве документации, а в том, что, как говориться я не созрел для решения этой проблемы. И вот отнажды ( месяца два тому ) я открыл чужую не большого объема стратегию и начал с ней разбираться. Стал сам формировать блоки, рассматривать переменные в этих блоках, постепенно понимать логику чужой jforex visual стратегии. Продолжая р…

Hi Pip Warriors,
I am going to share my own trading journey, mistakes and lessons learnt from mistakes in this article. I am working as salaried employee and have big dream of becoming millionaire in short time so my friend suggested to invested in share market because they told me you can make thousands very easily by working 1 to 2 hours in a day so I thought instead working 1 or 2 hours, I will work for full time and become millionaire in couple of months. Finally decided to quit the job but didn’t had investment so borrowed 500K Indian rupees from bank and started full time as stock trader without knowing anything.
Why I want to become Millionaire?
Want to change the life style of people live in my village. Initially thought of becoming government servant and serve the community but it’s not possible due to high corruption. Then thought of joining politics which is not suitable for me because I am not kind of person who used to tell lies, giving false/fake promises to people and break their heart so decided to make good money in trading and to give investment for the people for small/medium/large scale industries.
Finally I have a dream to construct and live like below Mans…

I have found some possible trade ideas to have in mind this week and maybe to the next one by patterns on few currency pairs.
And today's article I want to give to you this possible opportunities.
As always do not take this information without any validation and forecast by your own risk management.
Before the end of the current year I will make a review about the results produced by this advanced patterns.
The suggested approach could be risk 50 pips as stop loss and the entry / exit at key levels or support / resistance areas.
2. Development
The best is to follow the same process again, and again to improve results in the long time.
So, based on this goal. I will explain each of them with a picture to understand best what the price did after the signal.
The main goal is not to get a 100% correct pattern or signal, more like how good you can manage the trades and risk.

1. Abstract.

Inside candles seems to be very popular strategy in order to approach the Forex Market.
I was looking few setups the last week and I found that most of them are very good in terms of profitability.
The bad thing is that it takes longer.... because the suggested readings are made on four hour charts and above.
Today I will describe some of possibles formations that can derive on profitable trades for this week.
The rules for the pending orders are based on two candles, when the new candle open the pending order with the primary trend will be placed. If not, the pair remain in a list to watch after two days.
2. Development.
2.1 AUD/USD
If the price make a inside candle then a pending order to go short could be the option.
The primary trend is to the downside and the price maybe reach the 0.74 area.
2.2 GBP/USD
If the market makes a inside candle on the 4H chart at the 1.33 / 1.335 area, a pending order to go short is my plan.


2.3 USD/JPY
If the price makes a inside candle at support a long entry could be a good idea.
My plan is place a limit order to try a good spot at bounce, this is risky because I don't know how deep the to…

Nice article, and thanks for sharing your findings!
I used to study Harmonic patterns but I never got any significant statistical winning edge applying them in FX spot trading. I tend to believe they historically might worked, but they do not anymore considering that predominant markets participants these days are algos based on AI, advanced statistics etc.
Would you have any longer term statistics of applying harmonics to currency trading?

Beto avatar
Beto 11 Oct.

Thanks mcquak, I do have records of this advanced patterns.
But I started out recently around less than six months.
I found some particular situations by testing their profitability.
My advice based on my own knowledge and practice is that patterns tends to work very well as long term investment, not as day trader. That means could be great to have one account only to place trades like this to set and forget, I saw very good results by wait and track them each one or two weeks risking about 50 pips and trying to fit the entries using key levels, that's why I use Fibonacci numbers.

1. Abstract:
I know there are tons of information out there about the tool Fibonacci levels on any charting package of trading systems.
Also, I am quite sure you can perform a very well analysis using it to find key levels or confluence areas and so on.
But, I want to show you a simple way to approach the market using a sequence of combinations called internal points or levels.
This internal levels was developed by a Russian trader called Viktor.
Also, he has released a book about it, but I am not going to tell you about this book because is not an advertisement of him or his book.
The main point of this levels are four, called internal point 1, 2,3 and 4.
As average this strategy aims for a risk to reward ratio of 2:1, so is conservative approach.
2. Development:
The basic to start my explication will need to set this:
  • Check any pair on any time frame, I will use H1
  • Plot a line or candle bar, for me I will user the common bar.
  • Identify the main trend, the basic by visual recognition.
  • Locate the recent swing high and swing low.

There are few who produced high results and other who produced loss, the review process was done assuming a simple money management in this case, was placing an order above or below of "D" point with a risk between 30 to 50 pips, a limit to the nearest zone or at the key levels using Fibonacci numbers, no move the stop loss till the next seven days or more.

1. Abstract
Some people likes to trade gaps because of this there are big probabilities of collect few amount of pips.
But the risk to approach it must be strategic and could be different to each situation.
Gaps often signal continuation with the direction of the open and close of that trading day.
But sometimes could be a sing of weakness if the GAP is filled in less that two trading sessions.
I found a particular situation on DAI, a Germany stock and I decided to go short on it.
In this article, I will tell you how the trade goes and the way as a suggestion to approach it.
2. Development
2.1 Open trade on DAI
I found this on my daily monitor, what I am looking is pattern formation such as Doji candles, inside bars, engulfing and so on.
This stock did some gaps the previous daily sessions and formed a bearish pin bar. At this level did few touches and
At this same level around 73$ per contract, the stock did few touches in the past and for me, this was a confirmation of a strong resistance.
this was a confirmation of a strong resistance.
The most incredible thing was to look an open GAP about of 240 pips.
That is crazy, I never saw a gap like this.
The next. was create a range to …

1. Abstract
On December last year, the Euro was in a range area of 250 pips, and then since the beginning of the year fall into a slow decline.
The most interesting here is about cross pairs because these are showing an interesting formation.
Technical analysis says that after a rally moves up or down happen a period of consolidation comes. Then a reversal is more likely.
I want to show the same scenario to the majority of the Euro pairs because these are the most tradable. More that exotic ones.
I prefer to work with the major pairs but not with the minors because of liquidity.
2. Development
The indicators used to this analysis are stochastic(15,5,5), EMA(40) and Fibonacci Levels.
As you can see the same characteristics on all of them, each pair have a particular setup to engage it.
Let's see each of them.
The realistic reward to risk ratio could be 1:1 but in strong moves, the best is 1:2 as minimun.
2.1 EUR/AUD
The chart above shows the price action going to touch a key level around the 161% Fibonacci Level.
The Stochastic is near to make a cross on a sell area.
A conservative approach could be put a sell limit at 161% or below the last candle low with targets at 23% or the la…

1. Abstract
There are traders who take advantage of daily trading by using filters as early signs before place entry orders.
In my daily work, I have used indicators such an RSI, STOCHASTIC, and others to look for overbought or oversold areas.
Also, volume indicators and DMI to measure the power of the trend before place trades.
But, in my research to find the proper ways to improve my results over the time I have found two indicators that are used on stocks markets but I think could be used in currency markets.
Theory says that these indicators have better results, rather common daily used.
Unfortunate, dukascopy doesn’t have these indicators or I can’t find it on demo or real but could be great to have it to try it.
Let’s have a summary of them:
1.1 Money flow index
This indicator gives to us overbought/oversold areas, taking price and volume as the combination.
The RSI, use close prices by over a period, most common is 14 period.
1.2 Chaikin money flow
This indicator uses today’s prices only to make the calculations.
Volume and MFI indicators use current period with the previous one.
2. Indicator Money Flow index (MFI)[/

Trading in binary options is one of the popular trends in the financial markets today. Both experienced and novice traders are rushing to include them in their investment portfolios. Just like any other trading platform or business, you must have a strategy to use in order to consistently be making money.If without a strategy or a tactic to help you trade in binary options, you might as well consider yourself gambling. Relying on luck is not very safe in trading binary options as it will eventually not work for you and might end up losing all of your investment. You will need a solid technique that you can use every time, which will help you make the right predictions. Moreover, you need to employ a strategy that you understand well and which consistently increases your chances of winning.
The popular strategies to go for are:
1) Fundamental Analysis Strategy : This strategy is concerned with the analysis of the behavior of the overall performance or attributes of a company. As an investor or trader in binary options, you are interested in knowing about the health of the balance sheet, income statement and the cash flow statement of the company before you consider buying an option…

Dear all,
I present you a very useful indicator and I try to explain you one application for a very effective strategy based in the support/resistance.
INTRODUCTION:
The I_XO have a complex formula to detect trends by analysing the previous candle close values.
Is possible to set the period (number candles) that it include in the formula.
The great characteristics are the changes of levels.
Every time the indicator changes of level the price reach a new level of price.
The interesting are the resistance/support that the indicator show when it change.
HOW THE INDICATOR WORK
The indicator maintains a level until the new level is reach.
The sensibility of the changed depends from the period that the indicator analyses. For high period number the indicator detect more important levels.
This is the setting:

HOW THE INDICATOR CHANGE LEVELS

ú Candle ID2 | maintain and close with last colour/level
ú Candle ID1 | start with last colour but break the support/resistance and close with new colour
ú Candle ID0 | open with new colour and confirm the changes of colour
HOW TO USE I_XO INDICATOR
Is possible to use I_XO by different mode.
However the best modes are related with t…

The reality is that most people are lose their money at the forex market ... The question is, how good looser you are?
If you are not first day at the Forex market, you know what is drawdown and that drawdown periods are unavoidable, whether you work in the old way, manually or using a robot.
However, the long periods of drawdown simply killing, people start to doubt your system and modify endlessly, thus cause even longer periods of subsidence, and in the end, their patience is broken, and they leave this trading system, moving on to the next one. Many are well aware that trade without subsidence is impossible, but still lose their heads as soon as the drawdown is slightly delayed.
This moment is forcing people to look for systems with long periods of profit, which usually ends with abruptly deep subsidence (a simple example - Martingale, Scalping). That is why dangerous strategies have such a large fan base, especially among the newcomers - there is no need to endure long periods of subsidence. Such systems show a very steep yield curve with hundreds or thousands of percent, which always ends in one or more devastating recessions.
The use of such systems by newcomers leads to
