Welcome Traders and Readers,
This will be my first article here on Dukascopy and I hope the information will benefit you in the future.
As we are a community you can feel free to ask me any question, I will do my best to answer them all quickly. This also means that if there are multiple members who would like me to talk about some specific subject in a new article, please let me know.
In this article I will talk about multiple ways that will help you prevent overtrading, entering trades at exactly the wrong time and the use of different chart perspectives.
Overtrading
When I just started trading I found myself entering a lot of trades because I liked the price action and I thought my position would benefit me. Sadly all my losing trades showed me I didn’t had a clue about price action after all, this resulted in many loss trades or profitable trades which I closed way too quickly.
I think most of you who have actively been trading can relate to this.
To stop myself from opening trade after trade without being well informed and having any clue I started paying attention to the following:

Analysis of Gaps in the Last Ten Years 8/29
Posted 14 Nov. by AnddreyDr Ranking
Trading Forex Statistics Tradercontest
Various sources claim that 70% of GAPs are closed. Let's try to understand the validity of this statement. We will try to find answers to the main three questions:
  • How do different currency pairs react to the GAP?
  • How much time is needed to close a gap?
  • How to use the statistics in the trade?
For analysis, you need a historical data manager for the JForex platform and Microsoft Excel. The principle of analysis consider the example of the currency pair EUR_USD. For other instruments, the calculations will be similar. After exporting the daily and weekly Japanese candles, we will do the following manipulations:
  • We find the GAPs themselves, for this, from the opening price of the current day, we subtract the closing price of the previous day and multiply by 10,000 to get the value in points. A negative value will mean that the GAP is down;
  • We will analyze GAPs with a value of more than 20 points, for this, in the next column we transfer the GAPs satisfying this condition;

Forex Money Fibonacci Gain Goldman Sachs Leonardo
The sequence of the Fibonacci numbers is the Italian mathematician Leonardo Pisano. This sequence has been known for centuries. The order is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 forever. The numbers are calculated by the sum of the previous two numbers.
Example: 1 + 1 = 2 or 3 + 5 = 8
This numerical relationship has been used in financial markets for more than a century. The most important gold number is Phi. Found with gold ratio. This ratio is the ratio of the number of two consecutive numbers. High number share, low number is share. The result is always approximately 0.618, as seen below.
a = 0.618
b = 0.382
0.618 / 0.382 = 1.618
Gold ratio: 0.618 + 0.382 = 1.000
There are many Fibonacci rates and methods used for your account, but we will lean on those that have practical functions for your financing transactions. They are used to find potential resistance and support levels of the price of an asset on the basis of Fibonacci retracement. F is based on the principle that the yacht will be drawn in a predictable position and then proceed in the original direction. Historically, the most commonly used remedies were in the areas of 38.2%, 50% and 61.8%. These levels appear to be th

Останнім часом вкрай велику популярність отримала криптовалюта BitCoin. Він являє собою децентралізовану цифрову валюту, яка створена і працює тільки в мережі Інтернет. Також ця валюта ніким не контрольована, а емісія відбувається завдяки звичайним людям.
Відмінність цієї валюти в тому, що її курсом не можна маніпулювати, а сховищем є гаманець на комп'ютері.

The Macd-aroon-alligator Strategy. 7/29
Posted 8 Nov. by TarMarHan Ranking
Article Contest Automated Trading Strategy Contest Macd Alligator Aroon Indicator

INTRODUCTION

In a 4×100-metre relay race, one runner starts before the other, but in the end it’s the sum of the four runners that determines performance.
This is what automated forex trading is all about, where different indicators are combined to work together in the execution of the trades. The final outcome is more important than the results of the individual components, that is, in a strategy with 3 indicators all indicators have to point to the same thing for a trade to be consummated.
This article is about creating an automated trading strategy using three indicators, namely MACD, Aroon and the Alligator indicators using vjforex. This is a strategy that I have planned to employ in the November and December 2017 Dukascopy Strategy Contest.

гэпы на форекс. возможность или миф. 5/29
Posted 7 Nov. by IgorKolchik Ranking
Forex Цена Торговая Стратегия Гэп
Что же такое ГЭП?
Слово ГЭП произошло от английского слова «gap», что означает «разрыв». ГЭП на форексе это значительный разрыв потока котировок. То есть на рынке в определенный момент времени ближайшая доступная цена сильно отличается от предыдущей. На графике ГЭП видно как пробел между двумя свечами (барами), как показано на скриншоте снизу.
Причины возникновения ГЭПа.
Чаще всего ГЭПы на форексе возникают при открытии новой торговой недели. В большинстве случаев происходит это из-за каких-то политических или экономических ситуаций в мире, которые произошли на выходных, когда рынок форекс был закрыт. Так же цена в выходные дни может измениться в последствии чрезвычайных ситуаций, катастроф, катаклизмов и т. д.
Все выше перечисленное так же может стать причиной появления ГЭПа во время торгов, но это бывает реже, и в основном цена, хоть и движется резко, но без больших провалов в цене. Так на скриншоте ниже видно поведение цены USD/JPY 14 марта 2011 года, после того как произошел взрыв на АЭС Фукусима в Японии. Цена образовала ГЭП после выходных, который, кстати, почти же сразу и закрыла, а позже цена снова образовала несколько ГЭПов, после чего устремилась вниз.

Dukat blog Trading Forex 4H Chart Article Contest Daily Chart Single Currency Multistrategy Workspace 1H Chart
Most of the traders use several currency to find trading opportunity. But few of them can be successful on that. I think the best is to follow one and use opportunities in full scale. No matter you are scalper or day trader, you also need to follow several timeframes. In this article, I will share my master workspace and trading approach. For that we will need to have three different timeframe charts at the same time. I will use EURUSD and 1H, 4H and Daily charts. 1H chart will be our main trading chart. 4H and Daily charts will be used for reference to get general view about market.
1) Daily Chart
Daily chart is very important for having clue about general market direction. We will use EMA, ADX for technical indicators to analyze market.

Currency:
EURUSD
Timeframe: 1D
ADX: 13
MACD: 13
1st EMA: 34
2nd EMA: 120
Analyzing daily chart:
ADX is for checking trend strength. We will look for trade opportunity whenever ADX is climbing above level 25 and be aware of trend weakness when it will drop towards 25 and bellow. Check my article for December to know how to trade ADX.

Review of New Order Wiget on Jforex3 6/29

Trader's blog Analysis Technicals Risk Events Managment
1. Abstract.
I hope this post helps to understand one of the tricky situation at the moment of trade on news because is very risky and to give my view
on the new order wiget. This seems to be very interesting and useful but I think it could be best with some improvements.
2. Development.
2.1 Explanation trade on events.
Let's say that before a release event you decide to trade.
In this particular example I will re-create a setup based on a bear flag, so the entry could be placed below of the few candles low.
The stop loos above the last higher high, that means about 20 pips risk with a limit to the nearest lower low.
Till here seems to be a nice setup, also if you check the exponential moving average of 144, means strong downtrend.
Also, after check this setup you can say that the entry could be adjusted at the previous candle low as entry and the high as stop.
That means around 10 or less pips risk to trail the stops each candle.
But, the reality here is other.....
After the data comes on place, the price experiment a jump or explosive movement down side.
And with this filling the stops orders, first the order was filled down about 25 pips and that means your stop loss as well.
