Article Contest Opinio Thoughts On Forex Trading
Thank you all very much for acknowledging my first article on the subject and for penning your valuable opinion.
After posting the first part of this article, I felt compelled to follow-up with my thoughts.
There are risks in everything we do every day of our lives. From trusting that some lunatic have not poisoned our drinking water supply to trusting that taxi driver/train driver/airline pilot/ship captain is not a psychopath.
We take on insurance policies trusting that we will get paid for any eventualities….or our money are safe with the bank and will be available whenever we want to withdraw them….or that the pieces of paper we called “money”, which majority of us worked so hard to acquire, will continue to be accepted for the goods & things that we need and want.
These common examples are all built on trust and are risks no matter how we look at them.
In buying (investing) in stocks, we hope they will appreciate in time to make us profits on our investment, but at the same time, we also know these stocks can depreciate for some reasons and we can loss our investment. Yet the risk is acceptable to us “investor” and we like to call them “calculated risks” to make our investment…

Everything Works Better when it’s in Proper Alignment N/A/21
Posted yesterday at 23:54 GMT by ghfran Ranking
Forex Time Alignement
Hello every one
Hope you are all well!

In a previous article (price structure) I’ve discuss the price structure In this article I would like to focus on the importance of time and how critical it is to trade profitably and consistently… aligning not only price but also time is a crucial factor in becoming a successful trader.
Many traders might even wonder why would time factor be important in their trading? Why would time matter at all?
Well quite simply the charts we look at are 2 dimensional: we see both price and time plotted on our screens. However, if you scan the internet, it seems like we focus exclusively on 1 dimension: price. Price seems to be the only thing that matters.
For you to truly master the art of trading, you must devote time in analyzing time factor. With proper alignment this powerful tool basically eliminate questionable trades
Ken w. chow who has made up to $12,000 profit in a single day, describe the alignment of time as the magic tool
Now let see how do successful traders use it?
1) Time structure
Time range tells us whether the trend is gaining strength or loosing strength
There are actually 2 applications here: one for trading market and the o…

стратегия мартингейл N/A/21
Posted yesterday at 16:52 GMT by Vlad_55 Ranking
Торговля Стратегия Профит
Стратегия торговли - мартингейл.
Приветствую Вас, уважаемые друзья!
В этой статье расскажу о стратегии мартингейл. Если коротко, то суть стратегии заключается в удвоении сделки после проигрыша. За долгое время существования этой стратегии было разработано множество разновидностей стратегии. Специалисты довели стратегию, можно сказать, до абсурда, и произвели на свет стратегию антимартингейл. Антимартингейл – это тоже удвоение ставок, но только после выигрышной сделки. Но мы поговорим о классическом варианте мартингейла.
Изначально мартингейл стали применять в азартных играх, а именно в казино. Но в казино с игроками по такой стратегии эффективно борются. Казино – не тема моей статьи. Будем придерживаться темы применения стратегии при торговле на форекс.
Сразу оговорюсь, что стратегия очень рискованная, и применять ее на реальном счете на честно заработанных средствах я настоятельно не рекомендую. Ну разве что, если Вам не хватает адреналина. А вот значительное количество конкурсов, которые предоставляет в распоряжение Dukascopy способствуют тому, чтобы поэкспериментировать над применением Мартингейла.
В настоящее время кроме классической торговли на рынке форекс получила …

INTRODUCTION: Hi, friends, in a thanksgiving effort to all, I am going to give a strategy in Visual Jforex, which can help you all in turnover generation. Trading strategy which I discussed in my previous article, 2 EMA and 1 MA crossover method. As we all know when we get prize money, to withdraw that we need to generate required turnover. Logic behind this turnover generation rule is, Dukascopy wants us to make, one of the best forex trader. They want us to become a competitive trader. Because in this condition of turnover generation one will think and try to find out a trading method which will be profitable.
So lets start, I already given description of EMA and MA Indicators, in my last article and also explained VISUAL JFOREX BLOCKS which are needed here.
Lets check out on chart first, how it works. Below is the chart of EUR/USD on one minute time frame. Why I have selected EUR/USD. Because it has the lowest spread in all currency pairs, because of which it will give more profit. To make it more trend friendly this time I have used 200 period moving average. Here I have used 12 period EMA 26 period EMA and 200 period MA. On chart you can see, least width line 12 EMA, little b…

психология трейдинга 7/21
Posted 2 Dec. by Lowech Ranking
Форекс Торговля Трейдинг
Доброго времени суток. Хочу с вами поделиться моим виденьем работы трейдера на рынке.
Поясню что для меня психология трейдинга и из чего она состоит.
1. Вход в рынок.
Выставление ордеров и определения точек входа в рынок, для этого каждый трейдер использует различные инструменты такие как фундаментальный анализ,индикаторы, технический анализ и т.д по своему усмотрению .Здесь важна объективность как не где, без грамотного входа в рынок можно и без депозита остаться.
Не секрет что трейдеры сомневаются по какой цене лучше открыть сделку,бояться заходить в рынок,причины разные, ценна пойдет в противоположную сторону,начнется сильная волатильность рынок сметет стопы. В таких случаях позиция открыта или слишком рано или слишком поздно. что привило меньшему профиту или убытку,ну если совсем все плохо трейдер вовсе не открыл позицию.
Причина всему эмоциональная торговля,чего нужно избегать.
2. Сопровождение, наблюдение за позициями. вот этот этап и влияет больше чем остальные на поведение трейдера если ещё за рынок наблюдать постоянно как при скальпинге или просто активной краткосрочной торговли.При наблюдении открытых позиции никак нельзя быть эмоционально подверженным скачкам ценны ввер…

Forex Psychology Market Success Trading Plan
Abstract:
-----------
Sometimes or many times our daily trading plan doesn't go the way we want even making the efforts to get high results.
Maybe reading the charts, checking the fundamentals and setting up the entries with proper stops and realistic limits but without isn't in sync between our actions and mind to make the winning decisions.
I have read few books about forex market and found helpful information to work the emotional area on my daily trading.
This article is focused on people interested in information about mindset and also can contribute in personal life.
There are wide pages of chapters talking about it, but I want to make a summary more like a handbook and the information provided
here has taken it on the "John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd" in your book "The Wiley trading guide".
We can send positive messages to our unconscious mind by making a simple but powerful process before to start the day focusing on two main thoughts.
  1. Remarking the event.
  2. Remarking the day.
Remarking the event:
-----------------------------
To make this we need to think about two events no matter the time of the day:

Dear fellow traders and community members:
We are reaching the end of the year! That’s good news. It means that we’re still trading and that we’ve managed to survive this challenging year, with lots of volatility.
This article is a year in review with one chart and one quote featuring the main financial/economic event per month.
Starting from…
JANUARY
  • Event: Falling oil prices
  • Chart_BRENT.CMD_USD_4_Hours_snapshot
  • Quote by OPEC January 2016 Oil Market Report [1]

Persistent oversupply coupled with increasing signs of a slowing pace of growth in the Chinese economy exerted pressure on the oil market.

FEBRUARY
  • Event: Equities’ volatility
  • Chart_USA500.IDX_USD_4_Hours_snapshot
  • Quote by Schwab Center for Financial Research, Feb 11 2016 [2]

Investors should review their portfolios to make sure they still reflect their target asset allocations and goals. They should also resist the urge to buy and sell based solely on recent market movements, as it could hobble their performance over time.

MARCH
  • Event: A bouncing Yen
  • Chart_USD_JPY_4_Hours_snapshot

How to Predict Market Move in Fundamental Analysis Contest? 1/21
Posted 1 Dec. by rashadali Ranking
Forex Currency Predict Fundamental Analysis Contest
One of the most popular contests in Dukascopy is Fundamental Analysis. May be that is because it looks very easy at the beginning. But experienced members of the community already know that it is not easy as it seems. Of course for some it is just gambling. Some just follow majority, others go against majority, even some people predict in one direction. I decided to share my way of prediction in Fundamental analysis.
1) Analyzing fundamental indicators
First of all we are looking into historical data of the indicator. Most websites with economic calendar provide historical data and charts of economical indicators. You can use Dukascopy economical calendar or other websites. I mostly use investing.com calendar.
By checking historical data we are looking for trends, cycles, seasonal patterns. Is it rising or falling? How the data behaved this time in previous years?
IMPORTANT! - Forecast numbers are very important. Does it supports the trend or is against the trend? Is it too high or too low? Market ignores small differences in trends but surprisingly different results can shake the market.
2) Trend making and changing factors
It is very important to pay attention to…

A bearish or a bullish crossing of the 1.36922 and 1.51893 price can validate a bearish or a bullish domination.

1 December 2016 Economy Headlines 5/21
Posted 1 Dec. by cosma Ranking
Macroeconomic #article Contest #analysis
Good Morning All Users;

overnight, the main focus was the OPEC meeting in Vienna. OPEC agreed on Wednesday its first oil output cuts since 2008 after Saudi Arabia accepted "a big hit" on its production and dropped its demand on arch-rival Iran to slash output. Non-OPEC Russia will also join output reductions for the first time in 15 years to help the OPEC prop up oil prices. The deal would reduce output by around 1.2 million bpd. Saudi Arabia will take the lion's share of cuts by reducing output by almost 0.5 million bpd to 10.06 million bpd. Its Gulf OPEC allies - the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Qatar - would cut by a total 0.3 million bpd. Iraq, which had insisted on higher output quotas to fund its fight against Islamic State militants, unexpectedly agreed to reduce production - by 0.2 million bpd.
From the US data front, Private Payrolls showed private employers stepped up hiring in November and consumer spending increased last month, the latest signs of economic strength that could further cement the case for an interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve next month. Private payrolls printed 216K from 147K prior, while consumer spending rose 0.3% after an upwardly revised…

Are we Forex Traders or Forex Gamblers? 6/21
Posted 1 Dec. by RahmanSL Ranking
Article Contest Trader Or Gambler Trading The Forex Market
It irritates the hell out of me each time I brought up the subject of trading the forex market, the reaction is almost always: “Trade the forex market? Oh no! That’s gambling!”
So, since the reaction from just about everyone that I know seems to be the same, then the question arises: Is trading the forex market really “gambling”?
First let’s looking at the definition for “gambling”:
As a verb (used without object):
1. to play at any game of chance for money or other stakes.
2. to stake or risk money, or anything of value, on the outcome of something involving chance..e.g. to gamble on a toss of the dice.
As a verb (used with object:
1. to lose or squander by betting (usually followed by away): e.g. He gambled all his hard-earned money away in one night.
2. to wager or risk (money or something else of value): e.g. to gamble one's freedom.
3. to take a chance on; venture; risk: e.g.I'm gambling that our new store will be a success.
As a noun:
1. any matter or thing involving risk or hazardous uncertainty.
2. a venture in a game of chance for stakes, especially for high stakes.
The “BusinessDictionary” defines “gambling” as:
Betting (wagering) that must result either in a gain …

процентная ставка 32/67
Posted 24 Nov. by Lowech Ranking
EUR/USD Форекс Сша
Доброго времени суток друзья.
Есть такое высказывание среди трейдеров покупать на ожидании, продавать по фактам.
Как вы знаете Дональда Трампа победил на выборах и стал президентов США , в тот момент на всех рынках наблюдалось снижение доллара к другим валютам и так же снижался фондовый рынок,
но вскоре доллар отыграл потери и пошел в рост как и фондовый рынок. Это поведения можно объяснить что неопределенность с выборами прошла, во главе теперь капиталист,главное событие на
данный момент является изменение % ставки США впереди и вероятность повышения ее составляет 96%.
Препятствием ФРС повышения % ставки остается уровень безработице на данный момент 4.9 %,что не очень много,на протяжение 2016 года уровень колебался 5.0-4.7 %.
Так же ситуация с юанем,то есть намеренная девальвация к доллару которое продолжается 1.5 года повышение ставки разумеется ускорит ослабление юаня.
Поясню слабый юань никак не помогает экономике США непосредственно производству,так как купят там где дешевле.
а повышения процентной ставки убивает конкуренцию производителей США и сейчас ещё добавилось неопределенность политического и экономического курса нового президента.
Но последний заявления Трампа о намере…

The Biology of Forex Trading 6/67
Posted 23 Nov. by brilliant Ranking
Fear Greed Brain Dopamine Biology Amygdala Hormone Testosterone Cortisol
1. Introduction
I still remember my first days of trading a demo account. I was trading without a strategy or a trading plan, just common sense trading and it was successful!
But when I opened a real account the story was totally different as if I became another person. I was not able to exit a losing trade ,rather glued to it in front of my monitor like a deer caught in the headlights, I increased the risk irresponsibly in wrong times, I did revenge trading trying to quickly " make back " the money I just lost...etc.
This article is about you, me, and every trader who suffers the same bad trading habits. It is an attempt to explain, from a biological perspective, why forex traders often make irrational decisions and what can we do about it.
2. The Biology of Greed and high risk
When the trader sees a promising trade, a region of his brain Nucleus Accumbens (NAc) gets activated. This triggers the dopamine reward circuitry. The reward system is normally activated when anticipating something pleasurable or exiting like eating, having sex, listening to music, sky diving ,gaining money, receiving appreciation ,etc. At those moments the feel-good Dopamine hormone is released as a rewar…

Abstract:
Some people have the capability of "business man or woman" by nature but others need to learn and have a process to get success.
I am not a business man by nature, in fact, I prefer to buy things to cover all my needs because I never wanted to be a businessman until to know about Forex Market less than two years ago.
This kind of business has from my view point two majority groups, trader, and investor.
The purpose this article is to expose the main features of each and share with you a tactic used today by some investors in Australia.
1.- Trader:
Working as a trader on Forex Market I can say that there are two ways to the pursuit and get profits, it is scalping or trading with techniques and tactics in a period of short term.
By scalping is oriented to people who likes to get in on the Forex Market take some profits (less than +10 pips) and get out quickly.
Trading in a period like a mid or long term we could have big profits like +50, +100 but less than +500 pips.
But the process and strategies are equal or more planned and structured than for scalping. The main difference is about stress.
Scalpers need to be monitoring the position or watching the charts …
