Technical analysis Trader Contest Signal Provider Fundamental Analysis Contest Visual Jforex Dukat Contest
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 …

Fear and Greed | the Ghosts Haunting Traders 29/51
Posted 21 May by killer195175 Ranking
Article Contest Risk Management Fear Greed Over Trading Capital Preservation Risk Tolerance
Hello, my dear fellow community members and my dear readers.
Today I am going to talk about the greed and fear. I am sure that most of you are already aware of these two emotions.
  • FEAR
Many of us, in fact, all of us have a fear when we are trading in the markets - the fear of losing. But why does this fear arise? when we say that we have no fear of anyone then how come that we have a fear while trading when there is no one around us? Well, the answer to this question is- this is the fear of losing, the fear of losing the money. In today's world money is the most valuable asset. Losing money seems to be losing the very important asset in your life. When we have this feeling of losing something which is very important and dear to have, we tend to be afraid of it. We have a fear in mind. This is what happens in the markets. We don't want to lose the money, but the decision that we made is going against us and we may lose money in the process. This fear shadows our mind and we tend to take wrong decisions in the market resulting in the loss of the capital.
  • GREED
Greed is another most important factor or the emotion. It is something that we all have encountered. Greed comes into bein…

What can you do with USD137.61?
A good dinner & wine for two at a nice restaurant will probably set you back USD150-300.
And if we were to start a trading account with that capital, how much can we expect to make with that small amount of money trading the forex market?
These are intriguing & interesting questions which I found myself asking after I have won USD125.00 from one of the daily Dukas poker tournament and, after transferring the money into my live trading account , together with the remnant of what's left in my multi-times stopped-out trading account, I had exactly USD137.61
Looking at that almost pitiful size trading account, it occurred to me to take on a challenge to build-up that very small trading account into a decent size account over a six months period.
First off, I know my all-time favorite "Carry trade" strategy will not work due to the small capital which will make long term profits neglectable.
Day trading & scalping would work best in building up the trading account at a much faster pace into a decent size account.
For that strategy, I needed a currency pair that's pretty much on the high or low side due to some economic events. I found that in the EUR/USD …

EUR/USD Technical and Macroeconomic Analysis 35/51
Posted 17 May by TheAnalyst Ranking
Technical analysis EUR/USD News Trading
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 …

What Are the Markets Really Telling us about the Economy? 34/51
Posted 17 May by MarcusTJ91 Ranking
USD Gold Trump
Life can be difficult for a financial market trader, particularly in the current economic climate.
From Donald Trump's chaotic Presidency in the U.S. to the host of geopolitical conflicts unfolding across the globe, it is almost impossible for even the most deterministic of investors to remain focused on executing their strategies.
It is important to remember that the financial markets often gauge the pulse of the economy as a whole, however, meaning that investors who remain focused on the performance of their assets ultimately have the best of identifying long-term trends and making informed decisions.
What Are the Markets Really Telling Us About the Economy?
With this in mind, let's look at the current market symbols and attempt to determine precisely what they are telling us about the marketplace:
The Emergence of the Weak Dollar Will Empower Currency Traders
Despite it being argued that the protectionist Trump favoured a weaker dollar and more competitive exports, the greenback was the single biggest beneficiary in the wake of the property mogul's election.
This trend has reversed in recent times, however, with the dollar having experience losses against all other…

Trading Time Frames in Forex 37/51
Posted 16 May by hareem Ranking
Forex Forex Time Frame Trading Types
Before you enter into a position, you need to know – beforehand – when you are
going to exit the market. A trader is not going to hold onto a position indefinitely,
that’s for sure. Knowing the time frame of how long you wish to hold onto your
open position will determine your exit points and prices. If you choose to hold a
position for, say, a week, your profit objective would naturally be higher than if you
were to hold it for a few hours because you would expect the price to move further,
given the longer period of time.
This is a personal decision which has to be made by the trader, depending on his or
her risk tolerance level, lifestyle desired, and the amount of time to be dedicated to
analyzing the market.
There are mainly four different types of trading time frames:
1. scalping
2. day trading
3. swing trading
4. position trading
These are explained below
1. Scalping
This is the shortest time frame in trading; it exploits small changes in currency
prices. It describes the ultra-rapid action of opening and closing of a position within
a few seconds or minutes, with the aim of stealing a few pips from each trade. The
profit of the winning trade is small, while the number of su…

Forex Data Monitor
Введение
Доброго времени суток всем. Давайте разбираться. Во первых у меня большой вопрос ко всем кто занимается хоть каким либо анализом форекс, я не нашел нигде в интернете никаких материалов на эту тему, значит никто этим не занимался? или занимался и у него получилось?
Есть значит у нас такой замечательный инструмент как форекс или валютный рынок.Давайте перенесем наш "Форекс" в некую модель, ведь для полноты анализа необходимо собрать все во едино.

Форма Forex

Так как же собрать нам все в некую математическую модель чтобы все данные бились и показывали красивую картинку? есть много способов , но я сделал именно так:
Для начала составив таблицу валютных пар : столбец это первая валюта в паре строка это вторая валюта в паре.
Я даже составил математические кросс-курсы для некоторых пустых ячеек, но это ничего не дает, по идее можно заполнить всю таблицу
Не нашел ничего интересного здесь и пошел по другому пути, попытался как то отобразить геометрически, долго думал как же представить хотя бы часть не говоря уже о всей системе , начал с треугольников.
Длина ребер треугольника равна длине валютной пары, за координаты (0,0) взят Евро , две другие вершины USD и любая другая валюта;…

One of the short time period contest in the Dukascopy is known other than Fundamental Analysis (FA) contest, which is held on weekly basis. I Like FA and this contest is bit differ compare to other contest because here we get contest results soon and there is no need to wait for couple of weeks. It’s not difficult as much as other contests, and same time it’s not so easy also. Winning the prize in this contest is not important according to me but to maintain the same consistence which matters to me and the who maintain the consistence in this FA contest will become FUTURE PIP MAKING WAR MACHINE.
Dukascopy’s FA contest is very much helpful for newbie’s in the trading because most of them don’t know how to correlate the news to forecast the big news. FA contest will give a platform to understand and to correlate them by reading others explanations. Which will give so much knowledge about the news from 360 angles so that newbie’s can start correlates…

Введение.
Не каждый день у трейдера бывает удачным, и не каждый месяц. Бывают взлеты, во время которых трейдер чувствует себя Богом, но бывают и провалы, причем весьма затяжные, которые выматывают, которые заставляют сомневаться как в своем подходе к торговле, так и в самом себе.
В этой статье предложена модель работы трейдера, которая поможет почувствовать роль случайностей. Можно по этому поводу написать много слов, но, как говорят, лучше один раз увидеть, чем сто раз услышать. И мы увидим! Увидим при помощи простейших программ, сделанных на основе EXCEL.
Моделирование работы трейдера.
Представим себе, что каждый раз при входе в рынок, трейдер устанавливает стоп-лосс и тейк-профит так, что потерять или получить он может ровно 10 долларов. Предположим, что вероятность успешного исхода сделки нам известна, и мы в наших вычислениях можем использовать ее как параметр. Вопрос, каким будет результат работы после совершения 100 сделок? Сейчас увидим! Нам надо лишь скачать файл EXCEL, который я положил в файлообменник. Вот ссылка

Eurusd Article Sentiment
Trading with technical indicators can be profitable, but only some of the time. Since, it is more of an art and a science, charts and indicators can be hindering your overall strategy for making money. Think of someone who is successful in life, does he or she sit in front of a screen or telephone after they have received a call from a lover or friend to go out? Probably not. What if someone you liked gave you an urgent call to go out with them while you were trading, what would you do? Before you answer rationally, you may have already made your decision before you even knowing it, depending on how much you liked that person! But your successful trading plan, should help you in this scenario! Emotions are very much a part of financial markets, and learning about technical indicators that pertain to sentiment will help you understand how to make money and gauge your own emotions. That’s why I recommend learning about sentiment indicators.
Unless you are training and adapting your trading with indicators and charts, you may fall into the traps of all traders by merely losing time to the markets. although it can be dangerous to react wildly from sentiment alone, sentiment analysis c…
