In my last article,we discuss about greed and how it affect our trading decision,i receive some feedback and questions which will be treated in this edition as we continue to undo the enemies of trading successfully.
We’ll now shift towards “Fear and Hope”, another psychological trait which leads to making common mistakes. Fear always leads to illogical actions and hasty decisions which in turn cause detriment to traders.Just as the trader can become overwhelmed with greed, the same can happen with fear ("an unpleasant, often strong emotion, of anticipation or awareness of danger").
We all know that the market has its own cycle going up and down. The underlying reason why the cycle works is human fear that leads to the next cycle in market psychology. Traders become over-confident at the stage of Euphoria and aim at satisfying their fourth need without thinking logically, which can lead to losses and fear. Nevertheless, in the second market cycle fear becomes productive and the trader gets paid. Hence, it is good to have fear of market conditions, which keeps you alert while taking any trading decision, but at the same time too much fear can ruin the trading practice.
Fear in tra…

Introduction

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” is a famous quote from William Shakespeare. With research firmly suggesting that more than 90% of day traders lose money in the long run, the Forex market surely is not for the fainthearted. What is apparent is that the 10% that thrive in Forex market do not depend on sheer luck or mere coincidence but possess superior skill and superb character. This article endeavors to educate traders and aspiring traders on the traits of a good trader.
The key fundamental traits of a good trader
  • Extremely disciplined.
Going through High school one of the lessons that I learnt from my teachers is that discipline constitutes half of a person’s education and if that half is missing then the other half is not there. The same with Forex trading, discipline is everything. Discipline needs to be exercised at all times and not sometimes only. No matter what strategy a trader pursues they should be disciplined enough to follow through their chosen strategy.
As Jim Rohn right says, ”Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

The huge market swings trigger thoughts of monumental upside, but also for potential loss especially if traders do not take the necessary precautions. During times of volatility, traders need to adjust their strategy to compensate for erratic market. When trading during these market conditions, traders should follow the rules below.

1. What drives the pair?
One of the important fundamental factors driving the pair is safe haven versus yield search. We must remember though, that New Zealand is not a high risk country! This is why we can see NZDJPY going up sometimes in spite of JPY currency index going up too. Both countries are 'far' from the rest of the world and both are 'isolated' as they are 100% insular. Although initial reactions to events like Brexit make JPY or CHF appreciate against everything, after the first moments NZD and similar currencies also go up, as they give better yield while not being affected that much by general pains of economy and politics.
Let's see relevant data for both countries when it comes to trading the pair:
  • New Zealand
  1. Politics: Constitutional monarchy with parliamentary democracy. Constitution is not codified. British monarch is the head of state.

In order to become a successful forex trader, it takes a lot of time and effort, with many ups and downs no doubt cropping up along the way. There is a lot of risk involved, from making trades themselves to the entire process of placing a lot of your own money on the line, hoping certain currencies will increase in value. For this reason, a lot of people aren’t willing to drop everything and try to make it as a full-time forex trader straightaway. However, you can also lose out on a lot of income even when attempting to trade forex part-time. There are however, a few ways that you can begin trading forex around a full-time job with City Index.
Trade Within Your Means
You should always trade within your financial means, whether a part, full-time or hobby trader, as large losses can easily be made in the forex industry. However, when working a day job as well you need to only trade within your time limits and base your trading strategy around this. Start off small, only trading one or two major currency pairs that won’t take up too much of your time to research and plan. It’s not worth scrimping on your full-time job, such as skipping meetings or rushing work, just so you can make a…

Introduction
With so many indicators and forms of analysis, taking trades may seem overwhelming – there’s always conflicting information and varying viewpoints. But there is a simple trading strategy.
Break every trade down into four parts, and only focus on one part at a time. Here are the four steps that form the anatomy of every trade. Keep your focus on these for simple trading.
1. The Setup:

This setup is what’s needed for a trade to potentially occur. There are thousands of trade setups, ideally you should only trade one or two if you want to keep your trading simple. Assume for a moment you use Bollinger Bands Breakout. You buy or sell when the candle break the upper or lower band and close above or below the band (this is not an endorsement of this method, just an example).
Figure 1. AUD/USD Daily Bollinger Bands Strategy
When the candle in the middle of Bollinger Bands, there is no possible trade setup. You do nothing. When the candle break the bands and close you now have a potential trade setup you’ll want to watch for.
Having a setup lets you know when you should be trading and when you shouldn’t. No setup, no trading. If a setup is forming, proceed to next step.

All Traders start their career from the same point - Zero . All of them have similar difficulties , obstacles and challenges but every single Trader take different distance . I want to share not only with novice Traders my thoughts about success in Forex .........
Many people decide trading because they are attracted by an advertisement , news or rumor for big easy money , taken from the Financial Market . But sooner or later a lot of them loose their money because they rely on fortune, good luck, prayers and wishes . Only a few of them succeed - those ones who trade not only for pleasure , excitement and thrill but in a professional manner , like businessman .
  • TRADING IS A BUSINESS

Trading like a businessman - what does it mean ?
To be successful , every business must rely on four pivot points . They are :
  1. Profound Knowledge about the subject of business ;
  2. Steady Business Plan ;
  3. Initial Capital ;
  4. Psychological Resistance and Stability , persistence in implementation the Business Plan .
  • PROFOUND KNOWLEDGE

Basic education will take some years . If it is too much for a novice Trader he may switch to another place of performance . But if he is determined to become a good Trader - t…

At about 08.00 GMT, Saturday the 9th of January 2016, when I was reading one of the article posted here. I discovered once again how, many traders are so obsessed with creating strategies that they presume will make them profits in the market accurately and consistently.
Towards the end of the reading, these where the authors own words, may I ask permission to quote it “This whole process taught me the importance of considering large time frames during my trading analysis, and also the fact that automated strategies will never to totally reliable because they lack the human intellect to consider real-time fundamental changes in the market”.
This trader is not only correct, but did demonstrate from the statement above that she understands market price dynamics.
INTRODUCTION
Granted, every forex trader wants to make profit. The old trader feels very badly when he sees he still get trade losses and the newbie trader becomes even more nervous and don’t want to get losses. In this article I want to remind the older trader and show the newbie traders what works, don’t quote me wrong, for some it works for them – understand my personal trading secrets am about to reveal for the first time

Helpful Links for This Article
As someone using multiple brokers, I can confirm Dukascopy has tighter spreads and commissions. I'm not cheer-leading just honest opinion from a high-frequency trader – where tight spreads matter. Consider screenshots from other two brokers I use versus Dukascopy.
Spreads 2nd Nov 2015
Volume Commissions 2nd Nov 2015
The spread difference isn't impressive, but note the difference in commissions between Dukascopy and my other broker. Such pricing is the reason I may consider moving my accounts over to Dukascopy if JForex4 meets all the hype.
This article is about lowering overall charges not comparing brokers so let’s get into it.
Set Reasonable Global Stop Loss on Your Account

This won’t lower your charges per se, set a conservative stop loss on your live account. This applies to total drop in equity not per trade.
In the image, I'm not willing to lose more than 20% of a 20,000 account so, stop loss is 18,000.
It’s up to you to choose partial hedge or total close on …

Hi All, I'm a novice in trading.

I'm using the Jforex platform. I downloaded the Pipx 1Min Scalper, it is installed on my platform as can be seen on screenshot. I've also opened it to run, but that is just all I can understand so far.

I would like to be assisted as to how I actually trade using the strategy. Does it work on it's own. Do I have to look for something else on my chart to see that it is working/to get it working... or the fact that now it is running is enough it will just make pips rain into my small account? 

Please explain in "English", not some coding language. Lol... Thanx

Oops, sorry screenshot doesn't show the strategy on above image... but I have installed and it's running as I post, so I would like clarity on how Pipx 1Min strategy works. Best regards,

PipNovice is the strategy running - either in remote or local? If yes, then all you have to do is let it open trades and manage them itself.

Dennis Gartman has been involved in the stock market for over three decades. He has also traded the foreign exchange and money market instruments. He is very familiar with trading Treasury bonds, Treasury notes and futures contracts.
To say Dennis Gartman is an experienced trader would be a gross understatement. For a man who has traded for so long, and has gained a wealth of experience; he has some basic trading rules and tips which have helped him in his trading journey.
Rule #1
Never add to a losing position. It is usually hard to admit when a trade goes wrong, but this happens quite a lot. And there is a tendency to add to that losing trade in the hopes that the market trend will reverse, Gartman advises against this. A better option is to close out the position and re-group, or let the trade close on its own without investing more in a bad trading decision.
Rule #2
Trade like a mercenary guerrilla; this means been sensitive to the general trading climate, and be ready to change strategy as the trading climate changes.
For example, if we were long on the EURUSD, and we start to notice unfavorable news releases which could have a negative impact on the EUR, and cause a decl…

Next week will be next SNB (Swiss National Bank) conference, thats why i think thats great time for another EUR/CHF analysis. This will be third, first i wrote at seventh march 2012 (and i was right) and second i wrote at twentieth semptember 2012 (right too).Im really big fan of SNB peg, because i think its great opportunity for everybody to make very good trades with wonderfull TP:SL ratio. Thanks to several several big banks, which started to apply negative interest rates at CHF deposits is EUR/CHF traded around 1.21. (was as high as 1.2163)1) I think that SNB will not change their peg for another 3 - 6 months, because there is still big risk at forex market with EURO and USD too. So thats why i still belive in 1.2000 floor as great resistance, which will not be broken. I would set up Stop loss level in range 1.1970 - 1.1990 depends on your trading style. My plan is to open positions at 1.2090 and in case market will give me better price i will buy much more. In best case at 1.2010 with target at 1.24.2) I would split my target into two cases, short term and medium term. My shortt erm target is previous highs somewhere around 1.2150 - 70 zone, because that zone was several times…

My EUR/CHF analysis for now is...no analysis :) this pair moves based on politics these days so I remain neutral and will trade any trends that eventually occur in the future, long or short. If Greece gets kicked out of the euro and/or Spain needs a full blown baillout (or the political situation in Italy gets even more chaotic) I can definetely see 1.20 being broken. On the other hand, if things in Europe finally stabilize EUR/CHF can only go up. By the way, no matter if you go long or short this pair, you will still lose money (but not much) with swaps, based on current swap rates.

PTtrader avatar

Thank you for your comment. Im holding longs and still get positive swaps. I falled in love with this pair, thats why i risk lot of money. My score is 7:0 (Win : Loose positions)

PTtrader avatar

With average TP:SL 4:1, thats im not worry :)

SpecialFX avatar

How can you get positive swaps? :) Check this page: http://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/forex_trading_accounts/overnight/ For every million EUR/CHF 0.05 pips are added to the entry price (meaning that you lose 0.05 pips). Having pips added to a long position is not positive, because the higher the entry price is, the worse it is for the trader.

PTtrader avatar

For EUR/CHF trade i use another broker.

Although Forex markets are open 24/7 there are certain periods of increased activity. These periods occur within working hours of different equity markets across the globe. And increased activity in Forex market reflects capital flows between all the financial markets of the world. By analyzing these periods separately trader can get additional understanding about sentiment and market direction changes which doesn't occur in charts, displayed using traditional time frames like D1 and H4. The problem with medium-term time frames, like daily (D1) and four hours (H4) is that these are calculated differently according to different time zones. I‘ve seen professional analysts/traders display their analysis with three different time zone settings for H4 time frame: GMT, EST and DST (GMT+1). Because Forex is not centralized, for every trader is up to him self to decide how to set up H4 and D1 chart to align with one of the main sessions: Tokyo, London or New York.So every time when I see a red H4 „spinner“ on the top of the swing – I‘m not in a hurry to place short orders . I‘m always checking other H4 or D1 settings (usually I check EST time zone as my trading platform is aligned with GMT…

 In last 2 months was forex market very volatile, big equity moved to safe heaven currencies – CHF (mainly), JPY and another big 1 000 pips move in EUR/USD mainly thanks to Greece debt. EUR/CHF fall to level 1.00634, which is all time low for this pair, after that we saw rebound to 1.1980 and another sellof to levels 1.10, where SNB (Switzerland National Bank) start another intervention to help Switzerland export business. SNB want to keep EUR/CHF at least at 1.2000 level and is ready to buy unlimited ammount of EUR. Can this work? What will happend? Can this work? I think that in medium term exactly yes, because SNB has huge reserves to buy very big ammounts of EUR, but for longer term is not easy to answer, you know, Switzerland is small country and world is big. Last year they tryied to make an intervention and they fail, they lost allmost 40 billions dollars, but i think that now it can work, because once they say to public, that they will hold the 1.2000 line, lot of traders will start to play the game with them, because it is possible to make very big money with low risk. What will happend? I think that is very important to make an analysis of this market situation in t…
