This article is an integration of the first release where I explained in deep detail all functionality and usage about the simple widget "One Click Hide-Show":
I made an important improvement to the actual code and already fixed some bug since the first release. In case you missed it, here at this link you will be redirected to the article with all explanations, while this is the link to open the JStore where you can download the tool for free (search One Click Hide-Show).

1 - Setup JForex Platform
The very first thing to do is to setup the platformin order to manage with position directly from the charts. One of the key limitations is indeed, the inhability to 'right-click' on a position to eventually close or cancel it. So it is reccomended to let the default open positions as "visible". Consider this picture:
2 - Improvements
The most important limitation of the first version, was the inhability for the code to detect any order submission, closing, cancellation or any modfication, ending in the need to refresh charts on every of the mentioned events. I "accidentally" found the way to solve this problem while working on another code for one of my strategies.
There i…

Contrary to what a lot of people think, intuition, discipline and strategy are not the only tools required to become a successful trader. There is also a great need for information about what is going on in the various economies and what is happening around the world. This approach to trading is generally referred to as "Trading using Fundamental Analysis".
There is another school of thought that believes all fundamental data is always represented on the market charts, and as such using the charts alone to trade can be done profitably, without understanding the fundamentals behind a currency trend. This group of traders are commonly referred to as Technical traders.
Personally, I am a technical trader. Most of my trades are taken when my trading strategy gives me a trading signal, so I hardly take time to find out the fundamental information surrounding the currencies. During the month of June 2014, I experienced a loss because I did not factor in the fundamentals that were moving the currency pair. I also took a massive hit in the month of July as I took trades against the United States Dollar, even though the currency was supported by very strong fundamental information. I was s…

THE KISS STORY Back in high school, our English language teacher told us a story. Many of you may have heard it narrated in one way or the other. It went something like this: A well known public speaker whom we will call Mr. Maneno, was giving a speech at an important event. Twenty minutes or so into the speech, people who were seated next to the speaker’s wife noticed that the she kept blowing kisses at her husband even as he spoke. When the ceremony ended, one of the ladies who had sat close to Mrs. Maneno, approached her and said; “You and your husband must be very much in love.” “Why?” Mrs. Maneno wondered. “I noticed that when your husband was speaking, you kept throwing kisses at him” the lady replied. “Oh that! Well, my husband and I have agreed that whenever he is giving a speech and I feel he is speaking too much or the speech is becoming boring, then I should blow kisses at him. It is coded body language for - Keep It Short Stupid.” KISS IN FOREX TRADING We can apply the acronym KISS to forex trading with another code: Keep It Simple Stupid. The operative word here is - simple. Many of us traders over-analyse the market using all manner of tools to try and find the perf…

Good article and I fully agree with it. Speaking from personal experience, the simpler my trading approach became, the higher the profitability, and the lower my stress levels are. People sometimes try to be too "artistic" as I call it, loads of indicators, lines, studies, and for what? In the end they still do not know what to do, because they freeze with so much conflicting information, known as analysis paralysis :)

I like that phrase SpecialFx - analysis paralysis ...

This is one of the reasons why I always try to made my trades automatically (i.e., using strategies) the 99% of the time, to avoid overload of information at "market time", avoid stress, misunderstanding signals, etc.Good article.
