The summer is upon us. Traditionally this is a slow period for currency pairs. The forex market is still dominated by large banks and bankers. They, like other employees, like to take their annual holiday in the summer. Let’s take a look at a chart of the Euro to see the summer effect in force.
The rectangles on the chart above mark July and August, the two slowest months for many forex pairs. As can be seen on the chart above, trading activity tends to go down, volumes decrease and pairs usually trade in a range during this period of the year. Last year this wasn’t the case because we got some nice downward trend in the Euro. But going back several years, the effect is clearly visible. In fact if you want to see a similar trend during July/August like we had last year, you would have to go back all the way to 2008, at the height of the financial crisis.
The summer effect is starting to rear its ugly head this year as well. We’ve seen vicious reversals in most majors. For example today (July 7th) the Euro was down by 130 pips and then all of a sudden a rumor about Greece pushed the single currency higher by over 100 pips. Liquidity is low and even insignificant news can cause maj…

In my last month article I described the general ideas of how I decided to automate the strategy presented by the member BlueDragon, as I mentioned I saw a great potential in it. In this article, the last of this year, I want to show you the practical part as regards the implementation of the code. Just picking up on what was described in the previous article, we will analyze step by step the generated code to build the strategy. I'm not going to show how a strategy is made from scratch, as it is already well explained in previous articles from other community members.Let us start analyzing the code for each point described in the previous article:1 - Pivots Calculation:I will start by presenting the main piece of code of the strategy, it is here that the pivots are calculated according to the periods used : H4 - Daily - Weekly and Monthly. What this piece of code does is get the history of the last candle of each period and then calculate the (H+L+C)/3. Then it checks the difference between the closing price of the candle and the pivot calculated. If the difference is greater than or equal to the defined, the conditions are set to open trades at the beginning of the next candle in…

Merry XMA$ to all. LinnuxFX, I couldnt find your java code anywhere - did you make it public to so users can collaborate? I am missing for example the activeOrder and setStopLoss functions and can not verify your results. Thanks.

Succeed in the forex world is what we all want when we decided to open our first account and start trading currencies. But for those who think that achieving success is just using some strategies already developed by other trades and begin to apply them in your real account, they can forget it. Until you succeed in this world you have a hard way to go... After some research and collect information from some traders my friends, I will outline the stages through which a "newbie" has to go even begin to have consistent gains in the Forex World. Stage1 - Floor Drifting and Wasting Time (from 0 to 6 months) This period is characterized by a large waste of time to look for strategies based on indicators, but end up becoming completely ineffective. It is also very common among "newbies" at this stage, spend an unnecessary amount of money on books, courses and automatic strategies. In the first 6 months, generally they do not have a consistent method of trading and at this stage most of them give up because they lose large percentage of the money invested. Stage2 - No Consistency or Trading Plan (6 to 12 months) By this time most of the traders decides to stop spending money on un…
