In the jungle where a lot of animal species live, every animal is different and has its own lifestyle and the way of living, but all of them are controlled by the same instinct which is the hunger and hunting. The survival and fear of death are enough reasons to keep animals looking for foods and a good hunt to stay alive. Animals are following their instinct very strict and they invented and innovated a lot of tricks and ways to get the food they need to keep alive, some predators wait for days and weeks patiently until an unlucky prey get trapped, hunted and eaten by them. Some animal species such as lions, Cheetahs, Crocodiles, and Wolves share the same goal of getting the prey trapped and hunted but every animal has its own tricks and characteristics which make them very successful hunters.
In fact, the animal kingdom is full of lessons and tricks that strongly associated with being successful and lucrative Forex Trader, and if we closely observe animals we will be surprised on how intelligent and creative animals are. Therefore valuable tricky lessons can be learned and adopted by Forex Traders to improve their profitability and to be successful in Trading. Animals have succes…

Introduction
The Elliott wave principle was developed by R.N. Elliott in his 1938 book, The Wave Principle. The Elliott wave principle is a form of technical analysis that attempts to analyse financial market cycles and forecast market trends by looking into extremes in investor psychology expressed by highs and lows as well as prices and several other factors.
This article serves as a basic introduction to Elliott wave theory. A basic 5-wave impulse sequence and 3-wave corrective sequence are also explained. While Elliott Wave Theory can get more complicated than this 5-3 combination, this article will only focus on the very basics.
Basic Sequence
There are two types of waves in the sequence that is the impulsive and corrective phases. Impulsive waves move in the direction of the larger degree wave. When the larger degree wave is bullish, advancing waves are impulsive and declining waves are corrective. When the larger degree wave is down, impulse waves are down and corrective waves are up.
Fig 1: Elliot Wave – Basic 5 wave sequence.
Fig 1 above shows a rising 5-wave sequence. Waves 1,3 and 5 are impulse waves because they move in the same direction with the trend, where…

NonFarm Payroll was a big disappointment for March 2015, it also continue to precede the same tendency in April 2018 as the key bright spot in the global marketplace, the US economy is starting to lose its luster. Weak data in April is causing Forex Traders to look for another disappointment in the US labor picture. Like most fundamental news points in the marketplace, there are three sides to every newsprint that Forex traders need to understand.
Reading the News Print It's common to have a client call into a brokerage and asked why a currency pair has moved so much. The short answer is often that there has been a news release but that's not a fair answer because there's more than meets the eye in a news release. First, there is going to be an expectation of the news release based on the trend in fundamental news announcements and any developments from minor news releases and that expectations relation to the news release. Volatility Volatility is a fancy term that simply means prices moving aggressively relative to prior price history with less regard to direction. Because of the significance of nonfarm payroll for the US economy a large beat or a large mass will often result i…

Support and resistance is one of the most common methodologies used for trading. It is used for a variety of different asset classes and in this article, I'm going to share how this concept can be applied to accurately pick areas from which to trade in the markets.
First I'll start with some definitions.
Support
This is a level that we expect price to reach but not break beyond. Notice I said "break" and not "close". Price can close beyond support and the level remain intact. I will explain in more detail later. Essentially support acts as the floor for price and when price reaches it, we do not expect it to move much lower if it holds. We look to buy at support.
Resistance
If support is the floor then resistance is the ceiling. We expect price to reach this level but not break higher. We would look to sell from resistance.
Finding The Levels
Much like supply and demand which I've written about before, we are looking to trade away from support and resistance. We only want to trade the best setups so that means learning to identify major support and resistance levels. Minor support and resistance levels will still often produce a reaction but to have the odds in our favour as much a…

In the world of trading, you have to be ahead if you want to have the potential to succeed. If you interview successful traders or investors in the Forex market, they will undoubtedly highlight their audacity, ability and knowledge of how to predict the future price action in the Forex market.
But what must be remembered to answer the question?
Above all, you should know that Forex is a decentralized and global market for currency trading. It's the largest market in the world, dealing with trillions of dollars worth of transactions every day. Notable players are central banks, hedge funds, governments, trading companies, investment institutions, global corporations and, of course, retail brokers and traders.
To predict price movements in the market, we recognize that a trader needs to have a thorough understanding of the factors that can influence future movements in the exchange rate of a currency. And to succeed, remember that there is no prediction formula. In the ultimate forex, it all depends on your skills, your experiences and your commitments to succeed.
There are factors you need to understand to predict well. For example, they are: Economic Growth, Recessions, Geopolitics…

What is double top & bottom patterns?

After a Strong move towards Upwards/Downward market does show a pattern called Double Top/Bottom. It is a Reversal Pattern. Most of the people familiar with this Reversal Pattern but they end up searching for a New system just because they don't know how to use it. Well here i am gonna show you the actual way to trade double Top/Bottom.
First Look at this images which shows the Idea of Double Top and Bottom Patterns.
Two things you have to notice here-

1.The Area Between point 1 and 2.
2.Neckline
By these two images we can elaborate that market does react like this but the question arise that "How to read them?"
RULES OF READING DOUBLE TOP-

1. At point 2 Market should not close above the Previous Highest Close.
2. At point 2 Candle high at least touch the previous Highest Close.
3. Always Look Left.(For Support and Resistance)
Lets see some examples.
Example

In above Figure every condition satisfy that's why it can be called a valid double top setup.
Now the lets look at image below it does look like a double top but it is not a valid setup as per rules.
it is time to learn some double bottom patterns too After that we will take a look

Just think...
What if there really was a secret to trading? A secret code that every market abided by, in every time frame from 5 seconds to 5 years? What if the same analysis could be used to identify a short 1 minute swing in the EUR/USD and to identify the next major global financial meltdown, like the one that started in 2007? I suggest that there may well be...and that it comes from a complex set of mathematical laws that have been studied by ancient mathematicians for thousands of years, and have governed the universe for millions of years. I'm talking about Fibonacci Analysis. Not just your simple Fibo retracement, something much more complicated...and much more accurate.
What is Fibonacci?
In 1170, nearly 1000 years ago, a child was born in Pisa, Italy. He grew up to be one of the most important mathematicians of all time. His name: Leonardo Fibonacci. He is famed for his research into what is now known as the Fibonacci sequence: a sequence of numbers where each number is derived by adding together the two numbers proceeding it, for example:
1 , 1 , 2 , 3 , 5 , 8 , 13 , 21 , 34 , 55 , 89 , 144 , 233 . . . .
(1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 1 = 3, 3 + 2 = 5, 5 + 3 = 8 and so on...)

GOOD MORNING ALL !!!
USD pairs in currency trading is my favourite pairs so I have decided to analyse the US Dollar and share it with you all.
These days US Dollar Index is down to more than 2% this year and down to almost 10.5%. from a year ago. So I have decided to find out possible reasons for the fall.
Let's look at a fundamental factors of United States.
GDP Growth: In the first quarter of 2017 US GDP growth was confirmed at 1.2%, in second quarter it has grown to 3.1%, which was the highest since 2015, in third quarter it has reached 3.2% just below highest revised target of 3.3% in three years but in last quarter it dropped to 2.5% in line with market expectations. If we look into components, consumer spending rose the most in six quarters. Residential investment also shown growth after dip. Just two thing inventories and high imports weighed down on the growth.
UNEMPLOYMENT RATE: From last four months unemployment rate is constant in United States which is at 4.1% which is also 17 year low. In the last report market participants were expecting unemployment rate at 4% but it stood at 4.1%. Total employment rose over a month. But as labour force participation rate has increas…

In this article I will talk about:
  1. What is?
  2. What are the main features?
  3. How does the reversal confirmation of occur?
  4. Example.

What is?
It is a graphical pattern or a reversal figure that signals the shift from a high to low trend. But how does pattern formation occur? Generally the SHS (Shoulder Head Shoulder) is formed by three consecutive tops that are separated from each other by two.
Image 1 - Head and shoulders formation
The tops 1 and 3 highlighted in the figure usually occur in the same price range and are the shoulders of the pattern. The top 2 is the tallest, is located between the shoulders and is known as the head of this reversal figure.
The two points in the bottom are formed in the same price range, where it is possible to draw a horizontal line or a diagonal line with a slight slope linking them. This line is known as the neck line. It works as a support and plays a key role in confirming the pattern.
What are the main features?
1 - Occurs within a bullish trend. This means that tops and bottoms precede the formation of the pattern. The head is the last rising top, that is, the highest point of the trend.
Image 2 - Head and shoulders projection
2 - Projectio…

Generally, there’s some truth and some myth about managing your capital in trading. Effectively, there’s relevant information about fund management as there is on the other hand worthless information that will not bring success in trading. The reason is obvious: each amount of investment in traders’ accounts will be different. And engagement to take risk will be different depending on the trader as well.
This fluctuation is due to an initial fund in question and to the level of skill of the trader.

What helps us manage our funds well in trading?
Everyone knows that money management is a must to succeed in trading. However, most traders don’t spend enough time on elaborating or planning the money management. In this article, you will find out what would be the best professional perspective on money management in trading and we’ll also mention the ideas that can fit it.
After acquiring experience in that, we finally understand that most traders (after our investment) need method – Fund management – Readiness spirit.
All this reminds us to have a good working methodology, a good management practice, and a good intelligible approach.

The USD/JPY is a difficult pair to forecast under the current political and macroeconomic climate. The Japanese Yen is seen as a safe haven, but the US dollar remains under the influence of a hawkish FED. The North Korean provocations and the FED meeting could both swing the USD/JPY pair in either direction.
This situation is clearer if we look at the monthly and weekly charts of even just a week ago. In the monthly chart (chart 1) snapshot, taken on Friday September 9 2017, we see a strong downward move. This move was key for two reasons: one, it was below the 50% Fibonacci level, and two, it established a new low after several previous attempts at that price area.
The 50% Fibonacci level stood at 109.9 and although two previous attempts of a break had even reached the next Fibonacci level in previous months, neither of those moves or the other attempts had managed to close below 109.90, apart from a marginal close below that level in August.
Chart 1

The weekly chart (chart 2) of that week was also making a strong case for a continuation of the bearish move as it showed the pair reaching new lows well below a 50% Fibonacci level of 111.35.
Chart 2

If we look at the sna…

MACD is one of the most used indicators in analyzing the market. It is good for identifying signal and momentum. According to investopedia:
“Moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a trend-following momentum indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages of prices. The MACD is calculated by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) from the 12-day EMA. A nine-day EMA of the MACD, called the "signal line", is then plotted on top of the MACD, functioning as a trigger for buy and sell signals.”

You don’t have to know technical part of the indicator. Nobody needs that. We will use it visually.
Momentum
To check momentum of the trend is easy with MACD. You just need to follow 0 level of the MACD. Whenever MACD line crosses 0 level it means momentum is changing and a new trend starts
The signal
When you see the two moving averages lines of MACD indicator lines move away from each other, it means that momentum is increasing and the trend is getting stronger. In contrary if lines are coming closer, it means that price is losing strength. But during very strong trends behaving of lines may not give accurate information.

5As we all know, most of the forex traders begin their arduous journey by dreaming about an amazing future which will endow them with the precious freedom of money, time and locality. Money is a renewable resource but other two in this group are really precious. However, in this article we are going to discuss about a much more valuable gift than these three benefits of our business. And by the end of this scenario, the reader is sure to love his trading with a different way of looking at it. Moreover, those traders who have been considered themselves as losers will find a rejuvenated vigor to fight on and succeed. So come along.The holy grail I am going to reveal here is not going to come from any external agent or broker but from within each and every one of us. It is nothing less than an active and pulsating brain and a fit and healthy physic for you to live longer in every meaningful sense of life.

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 …

The EUR/USD daily chart is interesting to analyze in order to place the price action of the pair into a longer-term point of view.
First of all, the EUR/USD has made respective lower highs after two key political events: a. the Brexit vote and b. the US elections. As seen today May 17 2017, the pair touched the line formed using those two previous highs, but as of yet we do not know if the pair is going to break any higher without any sort of correction.
There are two scenarios supported by technical analysis. The first scenario assumes the EUR/USD is not going to close higher than 1.1123 and will remain below that level until it either breaks above the line or below current support at the 50% Fibonacci level at 1.0884.
  • Support at 50% Fibonacci level at 1.0884
  • Resistance at the current high of 1.1123, close, below or slightly above the formed line
Hint to keep in mind: A fake move above the line is also possible before the pair moves downward.
The second scenario is a clean break above the line and an upward move toward the first high at 1.1428 after the pair assumed a downward course toward the 1.0340 low.
Chart: EUR/USD DAILY

Things to keep in mind:
1. There’s a gap …

I'm not sure what to think. After today I'd say 1.13 is next. Above 1.165 and maybe we'll not be seeing the euro below 1.10 again for awhile. It's difficult to adapt to this price action, from a trading perspective.
