Forex Trading for Income - Selling Options 19/53
Posted 22 Apr. by fxsurprise8 Ranking
Euro Article Contest Fxe Options Taleb Call Put Strangle Iron Condor Selling Options
This is the second installment of my multi-part series, trading for income. In the first part we discussed a popular forex trading strategy, the carry trade. This time around we’ll talk about options, specifically selling options for income.
Options Basics
An option gives the buyer the right but not the obligation to buy or sell a security at a specified price. A CALL option gives the buyer the right to buy a stock at a specified price. A PUT option gives the buyer the right to sell a stock at the option price. A CALL is a bet on rising prices while a PUT is a bet on more losses.
For example, let’s say you buy a CALL option on Apple (APPL) at 130 dollars. The current price of the stock is at $105.97. On the picture below we can see the option chain for AAPL stock with an expiry in June, about 57 days from today. Note that the bid/ask spread for this particular option is 0.08/0.10 (the highlighted part).
Buying this option would cost you only 10 cents. But note the second percentage column, it gives you an approximate probability of your options expiring ‘Out of the Money’. In layman terms, this means that according to the option pricing model, you have a 98.18% of getting 0 at …

A Great Helper with Binary Options. 4/53
Posted 21 Apr. by maviz Ranking
Trading Binary Options Options
  • 3 weeks ago I decided to seriously work on binary options. Strictly speaking, this article - the result of this experience. At the beginning I started to learn how to better predict the behavior of prices in the short intervals, such as 1 minute. And what other traders are using to do this.


  • Currently, there are many different automated technical approaches (technical indicators) to obtain the correct forecast for binary options. The most frequently used classical configuration for their application. At the same time the technical indicators are not able to properly respond to the market situation, and as a result, the trader receives an incorrect forecast.


  • Some days I experimented with the settings of the popular technical indicator MACD. This trading approach tested not for a long time and was able to bring 284% of the income for one of the trading week. Now let us consider in detail how to use «MACD» trading techniques.

How to configure technical indicator MACD?

Recognising a Major Breakout in the Market 24/53

Breakout 200 Sma Market Trading

INTRODUCTION:
Many traders are surprised with the things they see in the market, while some will ask themselves while the market turned against them, because they believed they had perfected the analysis already, why could then could the market go in such manner since they still lost the order? This losing is possible in many way and for many reasons, and best thing for traders to do is to make sure they are only trading when they have the major breakout in the market, and they can make other analysis count in combination to what they are doing.
I love to do my trading only when there is a major breakout in the market, and by this, i will not be baffled by any uncertain movement in the market, because lots of noises would have been eliminated, and the market would have a clearer direction with a percentage of about 80%, this is good for any trader to take advantage of. Also, i see trading as a professional thing that needs the professional dealings of the trader, this is more than mere trading the indicators of the trend, it is more on the breakout, and the right recognition of the true support and resistance in the market. And this is very simple, in fact, it is one of the most s…

Pétrole: Réunion De Doha Et Perspectives 11/53
Posted 20 Apr. by isomere Ranking
Forecasts Opec Brent Light
1. Introduction
Les pays exportateurs de pétrole se sont réunis ce dimanche 17 avril en vue d’endiguer la chute des prix du baril. Était en autre présent à ce sommet, les pays membres de L'OPEP, la Russie mais l'Iran et la Libye ont décliné l'invitation. L'objectif de la réunion visait à trouver un accord en vu d'ajuster l'offre de pétrole à la demande actuelle du marché afin de soutenir les cours du brut.
Pour certains, il s'agit là d'un besoin impérieux en ce sens qu'un prix du Baril bas trop longtemps met leur économie en danger. C'est le cas pour le Venezuela dont l'économie tient quasi exclusivement à l'exportation de pétrole et dont les coûts d'extraction et de raffinage sont plus élevés mais également de la Russie qui doit faire face aux sanctions économiques et à un rouble faible.
En janvier 2016, le Brent a atteint un plus bas à 27$ avec une moyenne à 30,6$. Les prix ont certes remonté à 44$, soit un gain de 50% par rapport au plus bas mais restent inférieur de 30% par rapport à la moyenne de 2015 et bien loin des sommets à plus de 120$ de 2012.
Le niveau faible des prix s'explique par l'excédent de l'offre sur le marché qui ne s'est pas adapté au ralentissement de l'écono…

Morning All;
we'll see now a new Currency Analysis.


Weekly Analysis 18.04.2016

The pound was able to take back some ground last week, partially on the back of an above-forecast inflation release, while underwhelming inflation and industrial production figures from the US added to the uncertainty regarding the likely date of the next Fed rate hike. Final CPI figures confirmed that inflation remains well below target in the Eurozone. Key items on the calendar this week include Fed comments on Monday, UK wage and employment releases on Wednesday, and the ECB meeting and UK Retail Sales on Thursday. Ongoing questions, including the future of oil and Brexit uncertainty, will continue to occupy markets’ attention.
GBP
The pound received a boost last week after annual CPI inflation rose more than forecast to 0.5% in March from an under-forecast 0.3% in February. Core CPI was also higher than expected, rising to 1.5%. The Bank of England has kept monetary policy accommodative at least in part to stoke inflation, which nevertheless remains well below the BOE’s target rate of 2%. While the above-forecast figure offered the pound some support mid-week, Sterling weakened again as attention t…

что такое Forex? - перевод с биржевого языка на «русский». 35/53
Posted 16 Apr. by FoxMalder Ranking
Forex Технические Индикаторы Геометрические Фигуры
­­­Что такое Forex? - перевод с биржевого языка на «русский». В этой статье я дам своё представление об анализе рынка валюты и постараюсь представить саму суть рынка более упрощённо, провести инвариантность с жизненными явлениями. Пройдя когда-то краткий курс обучения в одном из ДЦ, я узнал, что рынок можно анализировать несколькими способами, основные - это фундаментальный и технический анализ. Есть также системы, основанные на японских свечах, кто-то торгует на объёмах, кто-то на интуиции. Спустя годы я решил посмотреть на все эти методы с другой стороны, с точки зрения обывателя и отделить так, сказать зёрна от плевел. Собственно говоря, начнём. Как гласит теория: технический анализ - это прогнозирование вероятного изменения цен на основе закономерностей, в виде аналогичных изменений цен в прошлом, в схожих обстоятельствах. Технический анализ рынка выполняется путём построения и использования следующих инструментов: - линия тренда, уровни поддержки и сопротивления; - геометрические фигуры; - технические индикаторы группы осцилляторов; - трендовые технические индикаторы. Мне стало интересно: что собственно технического в техническом анализе? Шестерни здесь не крутятся, топливо ни…

Trading Et Impatience 10/53

Strategy Trading Time Frequency Impatience
1. Préambule.
J'entame tôt ce matin ma session de trading, j'ai ouvert toutes mes fenêtres sans accroc cette fois, je suis content. Les graphiques ne me donnent rien, je peux attendre. L'EUR/USD démarre à la hausse mais mon modèle reste muet, il est déjà 11:30, je pars déjeuner.
A mon retour, je constate qu'une nouvelle des États-Unis a fait bouger les cours avec force: plus de 90 pips sur l'EUR/USD en une minute. Les chandeliers précédant la nouvelle sont comprimés par ce grand chandelier, je ne vois plus rien, tous mes indicateurs ont explosé. Je comprends alors qu'il faudra patienter encore longtemps et ça m'agace. Je pars prendre un café question de me calmer !
Je reviens une heure et demie plus tard et il me semble, je ne suis pas sûr mais il me semble qu'une configuration graphique se dessine sur une paire. Je ne l'ai jamais étudiée, jamais vue mais elle est belle, alors je la suis.......la suite, vous devriez la connaître.

2. Impatience et temps.

Lorsqu'on se penche sur une stratégie de trading, on désire dans un premier temps s'enquérir de la pertinence du modèle, c'est le backtest. Viennent ensuite l'optimisation de la stratégie et sa mise en application. Un des aspect…

Bears May Drag Oil down 8/53
Posted 13 Apr. by fx_lmcap Ranking
China Federal Reserve Russia Opec Iran Oil Prices Saudi Arabia Doha Iea Saudi Aramco

An oil production freezing deal will be discussed on April 17th in Doha, Qatar.
Oil producing countries intend to freeze production without Iran’s support, who refuses to freeze or cut its output after years of sanctions.
The current global production is achieving record highs, prompting analysts to argue that an output freeze deal might not have a real impact in the oil market. International Energy Agency data’s (chart 1 & chart 2) points to an average production excess in 2015’s 4th quarter of 2 million barrels per day.
Eva Sjekelova [1] reporting Neil Atkinson, a senior executive at the International Energy Agency:
A freeze on production is perhaps rather meaningless. It's more some kind of gesture which perhaps is aimed
... to build confidence that there will be stability in oil prices.

Oil prices have been rebounding lately from January’s lows, relying almost on production freezing intentions. A dovish Fed, a weaker dollar and tiny recovery signals from China have boosted the process. Myra P. Saefong and Jenny W. Hsu [2] on China's oil consumption:
In February, China’s crude imports rose nearly 25% on-year to 31.8 million metric tons, equivalent to roughly 8
million barrels a day

Continuation Patterns: Triangles 6/53
Posted 13 Apr. by Sennna88 Ranking
Forex Usdjpy Patterns Eurjpy Gbpjpy Ascending Triangle Descending Triangle Continuation Symmetrical Triangles
Triangles represent one of the most popular patterns. Traditionally, they fall under the “continuation patterns”. Together with flags and pennants, these patterns indicate that the trend is pausing or in the consolidation mode before resuming in the same direction after a period of time. Once the breakout from the triangle happens, it is usually done in an accelerated manner. There are three types of triangles: the ascending triangle, the descending triangle and the symmetrical triangle.
The ascending triangles
In general, an ascending triangle indicates that the market is bullish and currently consolidating. In order to form the ascending triangle, the price has to be supported by a horizontal upward line, while the resistance line is either completely or relatively flat. As the price is going slowly up and the triangle lines converge, the chance of the breakout to the upside increases. Once the price breaks out (picture 1), that may present a signal for the entry point.
Picture 1. The ascending triangle on EURJPY Daily chart
One of the additional tips may be to look at the volume when the break out happened, i.e. the more volume accumulated within that particular candle, the mor…

Trend Technical Forecast Equilibrium At A Glance Ichimoku Practitioner

INTRODUCTION
Forex mkt price movement and volatility are compounded weekly monthly , quarterly and yearly and simply taking a look at the chart , gaining information about the market is always preferable to secondary methods such as the trend.
This week I will write on weekly trends and development for the week 11/4/2015 as I take a look into the trending currency pairs; price action, what has happened in the mkt in past week and what may likely be installed for the week ahead.
A review on the US dollar index as we all understand that all major currencies trade against the US dollar, so I found it informative to take a look at the US dollar index from week to week to determine its weakness and strength also gauge mkts trend direction for the week .
The dollar index continued downtrend as predicted and it is expected to depreciate further this week.
Major economic data from US last week was extremely light with ISM non-manufacturing index rising to 54.5 in March, The FOMC meeting minutes was released last week but did not make any impact on the mkt trend as Yellen,s speech has already set the stage putting more weight on the downside than upside risks to her outlook which has kep…
