Рано или поздно у каждого трейдера наступает «творческий кризис», когда используемая торговая стратегия начинает приносить убытки, а новые идеи не появляются. Выходом из сложившейся ситуации может стать конкурс стратегий (Рис.1) от Ducascopy.


Рис. 1 Конкурс стратегий

Выбор торговой стратегии

Главными критериями выбора торговой стратегии будут являться занятое место, чем выше, тем лучше, и разумное соотношение стоп лосса и тейк профита. Так же мы изменим лот , поскольку в конкурсе все используют достаточно большой объем, несоизмеримый с рисками. Для тестирования нашей торговой системы мы будет опираться на прибыль в пунктах. Краткий план наших действий будет заключаться в следующем:


  • Заходим на страницу результатов конкурса стратегий предыдущего месяца
  • Открываем торговую стратегию участника занявшего первое место и в блоке установки ордеров смотрим значения стоп лосса и тейк профита, если их соотношение равно 1 к 1 и выше, а значение не превышает 100 пунктов, то выбираем данную стратегию, если нет, то переходим к следующему участнику

GOOD MORNING ALL !!!
I am writing this article as this I thought is important thing and I know this article can benefit many people, like me who don't have any other source of money but who are passionate about trading and who believe they can found a way to become a successful Forex trader. And other thing I want to tell Community founders and support team their this work is benefiting many people like me. And they are doing a great work which is just next to charity.
At the beginning of 2018 I have lost all my money in the trading. And this was my fourth failure in life. I know many of us have faced this at some point of life. As a trader and being a Forex trader this one thing is common for sure between us. That was the time when I can't go back to my Family to ask more money so that I can start trading again. And I cannot join any job. As I don't have any decent professional qualification. I have graduated from computer science stream. I was in distress as wasn't getting any option to start trading. And recently trading become my passion in life. And I know at one point of time I will emerge as successful Forex Trader.
Then I saw a ray of hope. One of my friend recommended me…

Различные средние кривые являются хорошими фильтрами и индикаторами для ручной торговли на рынке форекс. В то же время они имеют колоссальный потенциал для применения в автоматических торговых стратегиях. Яркий тому пример – моя торговая стратегия NBI (ver. 6.2), победившая в майском 2018 года конкурсе стратегий. Ее ключевой принцип – торговля в продолжение тренда. Сигналом для входа в рынок служит пересечение свечой простой средней кривой с периодом 24 (SMA24). Основное условие открытия ордеров buy – бычья свеча, пересекающая растущую SMA24, а ордеров sell – медвежья свеча, пересекающая снижающуюся SMA24.

Trading and Investment
So, you decided you want to trade the markets, currencies and stocks. Knowing what time of the day to trade is crucial, especially when you’re making trades early in your investing career. The markets trading hours is one of the frequently asked questions. Even I read somewhere that if you want to become a successful trader, you have to move to the time zone which is more convenient to trade during the most important trading hours. This is really interesting. You want to become a trader to be your own boss and work and make money from the comfort of your home. Now, all of a sudden, some people suggest you to migrate to another time zone. Now... before you read the rest of my article of this Month July 2018, make sure to check others in different articles especially some articles in https://www.dukascopy.com/fxcomm/fx-article-contest you might have great results over your trades. Let’s learn what the markets’ hours are and then decide to choose the best one. This is true that the currency market is open 24 hours per day and 5 days per week (it opens on Sunday afternoon at 5 pm Eastern time and closes on Friday afternoon at 5 pm Eastern time).

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
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 …

Благодаря программе Visual JForex создание торговой стратегии сейчас доступно практически любому начинающему трейдеру, а огромный набор индикаторов, представленных в торговой платформе JForex, позволяет достичь впечатляющих результатов в автоматической торговле.
Изучая в прошлом году индикатор Time Segmented Volume я пришел к выводу, что его можно применить как базовый для автоматической торговли. После ряда исторических тестов, методом проб и ошибок, была создана торговая стратегия NBI (ver. 4.7), победившая в январском 2018 года конкурсе стратегий. Ключевая ее идея – вход в рынок по локальному тренду после незначительных коррекционных движений. Источником сигналов служит пара индикаторов TVS с временными периодами 12 (TVS12) и 3 (TVS3). Основное условие открытия ордеров buy – положительное значение TVS12 при отрицательном значении TVS3, а ордеров sell – отрицательное значение TVS12 при положительном значении TVS3.

Hello traders, I would like to take some time and give you something that is very good in forex trading and the important of it would be counted as best in Forex Marketing.Most of us (forex traders) understand the meaning of these terminologies because we use them everyday in trading but we may not be aware their values and the actual meaning in real forex market and I will take the short time to explain to you.What is pips?The term '"pips" is an acronym for "percentage in point," although it's sometimes also called a price interest point. If that leaves you scratching your head, here's a better explanation that's a little less technical. Pips represent the smallest movement that a currency pair can make. This is typically equal to 1 basis point, but not always.
About Forex Trading You can't understand pips until you understand Forex trading."Forex" is shorthand for the foreign exchange market. Currencies must be exchanged to facilitate international trade and business, and this is the place where it happens. When someone in the U.S. wants to purchase something in Tokyo, his dollars must be converted to yen before that can happen. Forex is said to be the most liquid market in the…

  • Введение
Трудно придумать что-то новое в плане новых торговых алгоритмов. Конкуренция игроков на forex так велика, что привычные торговые системы стали не эффективны, индикаторы, работавшие 30 лет назад, уже не актуальны. Рынок контролируют крупные игроки с передовыми торговыми роботами, использующими не индикаторы, а комплексный анализ заявок и глубины рынка, психологию толпы. Поэтому все труднее отыскать надежный и прибыльный алгоритм, ведь рынок forex сейчас большую часть времени носит хаотичный характер и с трудом поддается техническому анализу. Недавно, занимаясь торговлей bitcoin/usd, увидел, насколько хорошо там отрабатывается эта модель - до 80% случаев. Конечно, на форекс эта модель работает гораздо хуже. Вот я и решил проверить, применима ли стратегия на основе данной модели к валютным парам.
  • Модель "Сходящийся треугольник"
Эта модель поведения цен характеризует консолидацию на рынке, обычно перед резким движением вверх или вниз. Существует три разновидности этой модели: восходящий треугольник, нисходящий и симметричный (см. рис. 1).
  • Рисунок 1

Рассматривать расходящийся и симметричный треугольник я не буду, а остановлюсь подробнее на нисходящем и восходящем треугольниках.…

Introduction

Momentum based trading strategy is an investment strategy that aims to capitalize on the continuance of existing trends in the market. In order to take advantage of the perceived opportunity, a trader takes a long position in a currency pair that has shown an upward trending price, or short-sells a security that has been in a downtrend. The idea being once a trend is established, it is more likely to continue in that direction than to move against the trend.
This article looks at how we can create a momentum based trading strategy in Visual JForex using the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) and Stochastic indicators.
What is Visual JForex?

Visual JForex is a comprehensive solution to build, test and run strategies; it is based on a user-friendly interface using drag and drop feature. It has a unique way to develop fully automated strategies using blocks linked to each other to build a complete and ready-to-execute forex strategies. The platform is web based presenting a flash user interface with a Java backend.

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…

INTRODUCTION

In a 4×100-metre relay race, one runner starts before the other, but in the end it’s the sum of the four runners that determines performance.
This is what automated forex trading is all about, where different indicators are combined to work together in the execution of the trades. The final outcome is more important than the results of the individual components, that is, in a strategy with 3 indicators all indicators have to point to the same thing for a trade to be consummated.
This article is about creating an automated trading strategy using three indicators, namely MACD, Aroon and the Alligator indicators using vjforex. This is a strategy that I have planned to employ in the November and December 2017 Dukascopy Strategy Contest.

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?
TRADING 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.

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…

*Rule No.1: Always Use a Trading Plan

A trading plan is a written set of rules that specifies a trader’s entry, exit and money management criteria. Using a trading plan allows traders to do this, although it is a time consuming endeavor.
With today's technology, it is easy to test a trading idea before risking real money. Back testing, applying trading ideas to historical data, allows traders to determine if a trading plan is viable, and also shows the expectancy of the plan's logic. Once a plan has been developed and back testing shows good results, the plan can be used in real trading. The key here is to stick to the plan. Taking trades outside of the trading plan, even if they turn out to be winners, is considered poor trading and destroys any expectancy the plan may have had.

Introduction:
In the beginning I would like to explain the meaning of Hedging in Forex, Hedging means opening a buy and sell orders on the same pair from an Exact point or from many deferent points. Usually It is recommended only for FOREX professionals.
In this Article I will explain one of the hedging methods, if the trader applies it correctly , Then the trader can abandon all other FOREX ways.
How the method Works:
1- Suppose, the pair is in Up trend, then we have three probabilities:
a. Complete the uptrend directly.
b. Make some reflections for correction, then return to complete the uptrend.
c. Switch the direction from up to down.
2- Here the benefit of Hedging appears. Because when we trade on this pair using this hedge method then we will make a profit if any probabilities happened.
3- The main idea of this method is entering first trade ( suppose Buy ) with a minimum lot possible on the account, at the same time we make a bending sell order with triple lot, as soon the pending order acts, we make another bending order, as we will explain later.
Work Needs:
1- You must choose a non-oscillated pair, it means that the pair is in a clear trend or it is close to swit…

Great article! I would call this scalping. This requires price movement characteristics that only exist perhaps 20 percent of days. Hedging (to me) is insuring that you will not lose too much with big market swings. Of course hedging all of the way leaves no room for profit. That is portfolio management.
