Posted 20 June by edlim Ranking
Technical Analisis Confluence Of Roadblocks Reaction Off Roadblock
This article looks at what's happening from technical perspective only and my expectations for major forex pairs: USD/JPY, EUR/USD and GBP/USD for the near term.
View on USD/JPY :
From the above weekly chart, the start of the second week of Feb 2016 was the first time price broke below range formed in 2015. Thereafter, trend has been bearish until now with price making lower highs and lows.
From the above monthly chart, we can see price making further down move away from 61.8% Fibonacci level.
Current market sentiment sees more favoring JPY than USD.
My current expectation is that price would target the next lower Fibonacci level of 50%.
My view on EUR/USD :
From the below weekly chart, i'm seeing price nearing upper resistance level of the range formed since start of Feb 2015.
Looking at monthly chart (below) though sees that the month of June has been bullish for the pair with price moving towards previous higher high.
Current market sentiment sees a mixed reading from both 2 charts.
I expect price to remain within the range for Q2.
My view of GBP/USD:
The above weekly chart sees current candle heading higher above previous bottom of the range-box.
From below monthly chart, pric…

Scalping London Breakout Jforex Strategies Automated Strategy
Introducion
In continuation of previous article, I will now introduce some minor updates and the possibility to back-test the strategy to clearly understand its beahvior: far better than any image or personal comment.
The idea and strategy concept are not intended to be used in full automatic mode, but as additional tool for daily trading and position entries.
Updates on "iLondon"
As always happen everytime I use something I tend to modify it in the attempt to improve. Let's start from the setup parameters window:
As you can see it's more clean and straight forward.
Updates done:
  1. The box is just 1 fixed color.
  2. No more breakout alerts. (eventually can be re-implemented).
Basically the code now will simply draw the box in all instrument charts, then can be stopped.

Who from all of us at least once tried to prevent the market trend?
And I am not talking about target INTRADAY or of some BROKERS spot , I'm talking about speculating the market trend of the following weeks or even months!
In the last weeks I have done different season testing on many cross with stops until 20 years, though some are less evident than others, all the cross have shown repetitive behaviors!
Important times in the same period of the year, for years! Who has read my previous article on CAD, (you can find it HERE) knows what im talking about.
Actually this feature we know it already and is not a new, in fact as we know
the economic phases of the nations repeats and the coin represents an economic expression of that nation.

But how can we use this feature in FOREX?
Easy, the more a cross behavior happens in time, the more is the chance it will happen again!
With the accurate observations and technical analysis we can speculate the trend of a cross with accuracy and then position our self accordingly! Before the movement starts!
As you can guess the potential of this kind of analysis are evident, the chances of earning are incredible!

Money Management Position Size Risk Control Kelly Formula Kelly Ratio
In this article, we will review and evaluate the traditional money management method in terms of the percent of our account we should be risking on each trade. Then, we will learn a money management formula that is capable of maximizing our trading system profits. We will finally give some serious considerations to be taken into account before applying this formula.
The forex traditional money management method
successful trading system must has a clear-cut rules for entries and exits, which include rules for exiting at profit targets and rules for exiting at loss targets.
When planning our trade ahead, the risk management process passes the following steps:
  1. Defining a predetermined point of exiting a losing trade according to our system rules (e.g., a stop loss under a support level 50 pips far from the entry price).
  2. Defining A predetermined portion or ratio of our account we are willing to risk on a trade. That portion varies from 1% up to an aggressive 10% (e.g., 2%).
  3. After deciding the stop loss size (50 pips) and the risk ratio (2%), we finally calculate the appropriate position size.

Using Dukascopy's Trader Contest to Define Your Trading Plan 9/53
Posted 14 June by Sennna88 Ranking
Forex Article Contest Jforex Trading Contest Discipline Fed Traders Psyhology Rbnz Trading Plan
There are many elements that, when put together, produce a great trader. If you look and read about them, you will usually find three different types of analysis: technical, fundamental and sentiment analysis. If you continue reading, they will tell you that if you analyze properly from the technical aspect, as well as take into consideration context of the currency pair i.e. fundamental analysis, you will do well as a trader. However, this is only partially true.
One of the main reasons why very few brilliant scholars can make their way into trading, lies in their trading plan, or the lack of one. Out of many Forex experts I follow on Twitter, only one or two of them have a background in finance/economics. If you ask why, your answer lies in the title of this article - Trading plan. Instead of reading endless papers on how to define your trading plan, I advise to use Trading Contest to practice and most importantly, to learn how to trade in the right way. And that is: by limiting your position size (risk management), defining trade parameters (entry, SL and TP) as well as trying to stick to your plan.

Brexit: Derniers Développements. 6/53

GBP GBP/USD Forecast Brexit EUR/GBP Forecast Opinion Poll Sondage
1. Introduction.

Les sujets de Sa Très Gracieuse Majesté devront se rendre aux urnes le 23 juin pour décider de quitter ou de rester dans l'union européenne. A défaut de pouvoir confronter les idées que le temps ne permet plus, les deux camps s'affrontent à coup d'arguments péremptoires. Tout le monde aura bien compris que l'enjeu de ce référendum va bien au-delà de l'avenir seul du Royaume-Uni dans l'union européenne.
Face aux déclarations des uns et des autres, les autorités européennes se veulent optimistes mais se gardent bien de tout commentaire qui pourrait retourner l'opinion publique. Les marchés, quant à eux, sont à la baisse face à des sondages indécis. Nous reviendrons plus en détail sur chacun de ces points.
2. Opinions

Les sorties du premier ministre britannique, David Cameron, ont été nombreuses ces derniers temps. Il a exhorté ses concitoyens à voter en faveur d'un maintien du Royaume-Uni dans l'union européenne en insistant sur les conséquences d'un Brexit.
Selon le premier ministre, une sortie de l'union aura l'effet "d'une bombe sur l'économie britannique"...."Nous aurons une décennie d'incertitude.... qui pompera l'énergie du gouvernement et du pays", en référe…

Technical analysis Audusd Rba Fed Fundamental Analysis Forex Weekly Outlook
Review of the last week
Beginning last week marked the continuation of pressure on the dollar for the last nfp who was disappointed and I went out to the data of only 38k in relation to the expected 165k. But as Sunday progressed dollar is coming back all the losses and the finals Sunday press the advantage in relation to other currencies.
Although the euro was one of the currencies that have strengthened the most against the dollar in the nfp despite good data that marked last week and especially more than expected gdp in the EU, euro is start to loosing momentum on the end of the week. Reason for that we can find in brexit polls where Britons will decide to stay in EU or not. Last polls shows that ,,leave” have some advantage and that bring risk for both UK and EU. Because of that euro and pound was on the big pressure on the two last days of the week.
Usdcad was very choopy last week and the main reason for that is that oil was on the crucial resistance and some false breakout and bouncing from resistance level of 51.6$ lead huge volatility on usdcad. This pair fall around 150 pips last week but that can be worst for usd because in the last two days usd recover on almost all …

USD Back in Time! 17/53
Posted 11 June by TRAD3R Ranking
Forex Daily Analysis Usdcad Seasonality
Trader colleagues , in this article i'll steal a little of your time (no much, time is money! ) for a look on USDCAD and his seasonality.
Seasonality?! Don't forget that men do always same things, and currency too , i hope , but stop talking and go on. (sorry for my english , i know...)
First chart , USDCAD daily from 01 April - today
Surely setup of this cross is bull , in medio-long term , but we try to forecast a possible trend in the next weeks, start from this period but back in time! in these last seven years.
Second chart, USDCAD average 7 years 2009-2015 , 01 April - 31 August
It sounds familiar ?! This trend feature USDCAD from seven years in the same period , 1 April to 31 August. You not belive me?
Ok, i show you the next chart..
Third chart , USDCAD WEEKLY 2009-2016
How you can see from that, the seasonality is clear, not same al 100% but similar almost enough.
My idea "We be in a movement like "Cup and handle" in long term , and now we are on base of possible handle!"
This signal may be the start of a new trend long!
Of course , colleagues , the seasonality not is a cristal ball! But i believe that we should spent few minutes and think on "possibility " to risk little…

Sell Bias on Euro & Greater Volatility 19/53
Posted 10 June by pshan Ranking
Volatility Trader Contest Jforex Sterling George Soros Referendum Erm Brexit John Major Euo
With the EU referendum on June 23 for Great Britain to exit from the EU currency bloc, we should expect to see greater volatility from currencies. So far, the consensus going towards an exit has been unfavorable, as trading has been negative with any hint of them leaving. Yet the financial polls show strengthening support to the contrary; people think that, essentially, Great Britain will stay. There is also rumor that investors believe this should be good for the Euro, based on consensus.
Systemically, there are plenty of indications that currency volatility should go up with Poland, Greece, Sweden and France expressing a loss of confidence in the EU, in addition to Britain. This run-on effect points to greater volatility in the FX markets.
NOTEWORTHY
Also noteworthy are comments from former prime minister, John Major, who had been in favor of a free-floating currency during his tenure, is reported saying that Britain’s intention to leave the EU is ‘a campaign verging on the squalid’. Here’s a link to the report at MarketPulse.
PERSONAL TRADING
I’m keeping an overall negative bias on the Euro, despite there being volatile upside potential, I would look for overbought le…

London Box & London Breakout 5/53
Posted 8 June by scramble Ranking
Automated Jforex London Breakout Prelondon Box Londonbox London Breakout Strategy
Introduction
This article is about the automated drawing of the pre -London session box in charts, and a quick representation of a trading strategy. I guess it will be useful to many people since this is one of the oldest tools you can find in forex trading, but still valid and still profitable (with the correct setups), and for some strange reasons is not yet coded for JForex! Or eventually done but not published. Or maybe it's me who is unable to find it... Anyway here it is: Cooked and free download! I hope you enjoy and please, don't forget to like it!
The Concept
The first step is to identify the area where market was trading before the London session opening, which comes at 8:00AM London Time. In the following 30min GPB/USD chart, I simply drawn 2 lines where London session starts, and the pre-session range time. As seen, since London starts (in this case) at 7:00 broker time, we are interested in the area starting with the candle right after the 02:30AM until the 06:30AM one. To avoid confusions, remember the 06:30 candle is completed with the last tick 06:59:59 so it's still pre-session price until the first tick coming starting from 07:00:00.
The second step is to ident…
