Forex blogLoonie and Aussie Share Downward Bond

In yesterdays post ( Tide is Turning for the Aussie ), I explained how a prevailing sense of uncertainty in the markets has manifested itself in the form of a declining Australian Dollar. With todays post, Id like to carry that argument forward to the Canadian Dollar.

As it turns out, the forex markets are currently treating the Loonie and the Aussie as inseparable. According to Mataf. the AUD/USD and CAD/USD are trading with a 92.5% correlation, the second highest in forex (behind only the CHFUSD and AUDUSD). The fact that the two have been numerically correlated (see chart below) for the better part of 2011 can also be discerned with a cursory glance at the charts above.

Why is this the case? As it turns out, there are a handful of reasons. First of all, both have earned the dubious characterization of commodity currency, which basically means that a rise in commodity prices is matched by a proportionate appreciation in the Aussie and Loonie, relative to the US dollar. You can see from the chart above that the year-long commodities boom and sudden drop corresponded with similar movement in commodity currencies. Likewise, yesterdays rally coincided with the biggest one-day rise in the Canadian Dollar in the year-to-date.

Beyond this, both currencies are seen as attractive proxies for risk. Even though the chaos in the eurozone has very little actual connection to the Loonie and Aussie (which are fiscally sound, geographically distinct, and economically insulated from the crisis), the two currencies have recently taken their cues from political developments in Greece, of all things. Given the heightened sensitivity to risk that has arisen both from the sovereign debt crisis and global economic slowdown, its no surprise that investors have responded cautiously by unwinding bets on the Canadian dollar.

Finally, the Bank of Canada is in a very similar position to the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). Both central banks embarked on a cycle of monetary tightening in 2010, only to suspend rate hikes in 2011, due to uncertainty over near-term growth prospects. While GDP growth has indeed moderated in both countries, price inflation has not. In fact, the most recent reading of Canadian CPI was 3.7%, which is well above the BOCs comfort zone. Further complicating the picture is the fact that the Loonie is near a record high, and the BOC remains wary of further stoking the fires of appreciation by making it more attractive to carry traders.

In the near-term, then, the prospects for further appreciation are not good. The currencys rise was so solid in 2009-2010 that it now seems the forex markets may have gotten ahead of themselves. A pullback towards parity and beyond seems like the only realistic possibility. If/when the global economy stabilizes, central banks resume heightening, and risk appetite increases, you can be sure that the Loonie (and the Aussie) will pick up where they left off.

Tide is Turning for the Aussie

Australia is about to enter a boom that should last decadesThe Australian dollar is unlikely to go back to where it was, and manufacturing will shrink in importance to the economy, perhaps even faster than it has been. This, according to Martin Parkinson, Treasury Minister of Australia. While 30 years from now, Mr. Parkinsons prognosis might probe to be accurate, Im not so sure it applies to the period 3 months from now. Heres why:

First of all, the putative economic boom that is taking place in Australia is being driven entirely by high commodity prices and surging production and exports. Since peaking at the end of April, commodity prices have fallen mightily. You can see from the chart above that there continues to exist a tight correlation between the AUD/USD and commodities prices. As commodities prices have fallen over the last two months, so has the Australian Dollar.

In addition, while demand will probably remain strong over the long-term, it may very well slacken over the short-term, due to declining economic growth across the industrialized world. Consider also that Australias largest market for commodity exports China may have difficulty sustaining a GDP growth rate of 10%, and at the very least, new fixed-asset investment (which necessitates demand for raw materials) will temporarily peak in the immediate future.

Finally, the mining sector directly accounts for only 8% of Australias economy, which means that only to a limited extent to high commodities prices contribute to the bottom line of Australian GDP. This notion is reinforced by the 1.2% economic contraction in the second quarter the biggest decline in 20 years and the fact that GDP is basically flat over the last three quarters. Many non-mining economic indicators are sagging, and the number of corporate bankruptcies is 10% higher than in 2010. In the end, then, the ebb and flow of Australias fortune depends less on commodities, and more on other sectors.

Mr. Parkinsons optimistic forecasts might also be undermined in the short-term by a looser-than-expected monetary policy. The Reserve Bank of Australia last hiked its benchmark interest rate in November 2010, and may not hike again for a few more months due to moderating economic growth and proportionally moderate inflation. Given that an attractive interest rate differential may be driving some of the speculative activity that has girded the Aussies rise, a decline in this differential could likewise propel it downward.

Thats because anecdotal reports suggest that the Australian Dollar remains a popular long currency for carry traders, funded by shorting the US Dollar, and to a lesser extent, Japanese Yen. Given that many of these carry trades are heavily leveraged, it wouldnt take much to trigger a short squeeze and a rapid decline in the AUD/USD. For evidence of this phenomenon, one has to look no further back than May 2010, when the Aussie fell 10-15% in only three weeks.

Ultimately, as one commentator recently pointed out, the Aussies 70% rise since 2008 might better be seen as US Dollar weakness (which also catalyzed the rise in commodity prices). The apparent stabilizing of the dollar. then, might let some air out of the currency down under.

Emerging Market Currencies Brace for Correction

It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, begins Charles Dickens The Tale of Two Cities . In 2011, the winter of despair was followed by the spring of uncertainty. Due to the earthquake/tsunami in Japan, the continued tribulations of Greece, rising commodity prices, and growing concern over the global economic recovery, volatility in the forex markets has risen, and investors are unclear as to how to proceed. For now at least, they are responding by dumping emerging market currencies.

As you can see from the chart above (which shows a cross-section of emerging market forex), most currencies peaked in the beginning of May and have since sold-off significantly. If not for the rally that started off the year, all emerging market currencies would probably be down for the year-to-date, and in fact many of them are anyway. Still, the returns for even the top performers are much less spectacular than in 2009 and 2010. Similarly, the MSCI Emerging Markets Stock Index is down 3.5% in the YTD, and the JP Morgan Emerging Market Bond Index (EMBI+) has risen 4.5% (which is reflects declining growth forecasts as much as perceptions of increasing creditworthiness).

There are a couple of factors that are driving this ebbing of sentiment. First of all, risk appetite is waning. Over the last couple months, every flareup in the eurozone debt crisis coincided with a sell-off in emerging markets. According to the Wall Street Journal. Central and eastern European currencies that are seen as being most vulnerable to financial turmoil in the euro zone have underperformed. Economies further afield, such as Turkey and Russia, have also experienced weakness in their respective currencies. Some analysts believe that because emerging economies are generally more fiscally sound than their fundamental counterparts, that they are inherently less risky. Unfortunately, while this proposition makes theoretical sense, you can be assured that a default by a member of the eurozone will trigger a mass exodus into safe havens NOT into emerging markets.

While emerging market Asia and South America is somewhat insulated from eurozone fiscal problems. On the other hand, they remain vulnerable to an economic slowdown in China and to rising inflation. Emerging market central banks have avoided making significant interest rate hikes (hence, rising bond prices) for fear of inviting further capital inflow and stoking currency appreciation and the result has been rising price inflation. You can see from the chart above that the darkest areas (symbolizing higher inflation) are all located in emerging economic regions. While high inflation is not inherently problematic, it is not difficult to conceive of a downward spiral into hyperinflation. Again, a sudden bout of monetary instability would send investors rushing to the exits.

While most analysts (myself included) remain bullish on emerging markets over the long-term. many are laying off in the short-term. RBC emerging market strategist Nick Chamie says his team has recommended defensive posturing to clients since May 5 and isnt recommending new bullish emerging currency bets right now. HSBC said Thursday that it isnt recommending outright short positions on emerging market currencies to clients but suggested a more cautious and selective approach in making currency bets. This phenomenon will be exacerbated by the fact that market activity typically slows down in the summer chart above courtesy of Forex Magnates ) as traders go on vacation. With less liquidity and an inability to constantly monitor ones portfolio, traders will be loathe to take on risky positions.

The Bottom Line

As a trader on the foreign exchange market, you have many different options when it comes to which broker you choose. Forex/Gain Capital Group LLC is a solid, reliable choice. This broker enjoys a very good reputation and traders can rest assured that their finances are in good hands when dealing with it. The perks of competitive trading spreads, many different account options and many different easy-to-use trading platforms makes Forex a topnotch choice for traders of all stripes. Sink your teeth into what Forex has to offer by opening a practice account; chances are, youll be impressed enough to sign up for a real one shortly thereafter.

What is Support and Resistance?

Most traders learn about SR in their first few months of trading. So I am sure you know that support is a level below the current price that the market may struggle to break through before going lower.

Or the price may also bounce back up at this level. On the other side, above price, you have resistance levels where the market will struggle to break higher or bounce back from.

These levels are commonly derived from swing highs and lows. The problem however with using the swing high and low is that the price many times will test through these levels and then come back.

Why does this happen? The answer comes partly from what was taught last week limit orders. I will be showing you how to spot these levels in the webinar by looking at market sentiment .

What Are Tick Based Charts?

In this weeks training you are going to learn about tick charts and why they can give you an edge over the typical time based charts.

You will also learn how to add a tick chart on our trading platform Informer.

What Is A Tick Chart?

Instead of each bar representing a certain amount of time (1 minute, 5 minutes, 1 hour, etc.), a tick chart is based on a certain number of ticks (price movements).

For example, a 10 tick chart means that each bar makes up 10 price movements up or down. So instead of getting a new bar every 5 minutes on time based charts, you only get bars when there is price activity.

In some cases it might take hours for a bar to print depending on the number of ticks you have it set to and the volatility in the markets.

Tick charts are similar to Renko and Range based charts, except they are not based on a certain number of pips.

Part 5 What is Forex ?

Read a graph

When you investon Forex, you have two main tools under eyes. Your platform of trading, which allows you to cross your orders, and your graphs, which represent the evolution of the prices.

There are several types chaps of graphs, several manners to represent the evolution of the courses prices. The most used method, and the best in our opinion, is the method of the Japanese candlesticks.

What forex? part 4

Knowing that Forex is a very volatile market, and that it is current to notice daily variations of more than pips 100, one understand(include) fast that the gains can accumulate in an extraordinary speed. A small calculation will be more speaking:

- another example: if we use entirely 1000 available dollars and control lever of 500, we can buy 500 1000-dollar lots. If we always base ourselves on a variation of pips 100, the profit will be 10 dollars by contract, that is all in all 5000 dollars by having investing 1000 dollars. Always in the day!!

Greek Forex Broker

Ive uploaded the basic details about FXGreece broker to my site today. I guess its the first Greek Forex broker that Ive seen. There were many from Cyprus, but though culturally related Cyprus isnt Greece. Is there anything else interesting about this broker? Not much, they are quite average and in some properties — below the average. FXGreece offers web-based, standalone and mobile trading software, but the minimum account size is quite high even for mini — $2,000. Other features of this broker include:

Support and Resistance the two key words

To really understand the behavior of a currency on the Forex market it is important to see how it has behaved over a period of time. Taken over the course of a very short space of time, it is possible to make data mean just about anything. This, in turn, means that the data will be almost worthless. Over a longer period of time, however, patterns always seem to assert themselves, and establish a firm basis for predicting the future.

Make a Living with Forex Trading

All forex traders desire consistent profits, however many fail to accomplish their dreams. Why it is so difficult to become successful in forex trading and what are the ways to make a living trading online?

Beginners in forex wonder why it is so hard to become successful despite all the incredible efforts. Success in forex trading is closely related to understanding yourself and your psychological weaknesses. Sometimes it takes time for forex trader to objectively evaluate trades that went wrong. Even with the strongest, clearest strategy, fear and greed play major role in forex trading.

To become successful forex trader you have to invest a lot of time. Even professional full-time traders spend more than 8 hours per day researching, learning, analyzing and practicing. Determination is an important piece of the success puzzle.

Fear strikes the minute forex trader experiences losses on the way. The key to success is to stay positive, stop blaming yourself for every lost cent and always believe in yourself. Without self-confidence you will not only continue to blame yourself for every unfortunate trade, but also skip a lot of opportunities out of fear and lack of self esteem.

Mistakes in forex trading should always be treated as lessons, as a gained experience, as the down payment for much larger profits. A wise trader will analyze what went wrong, make sure not to get into the same trouble again and move on. Sometimes taking time out of trading makes you look clearly at strategies and faults. I suggest including “time out” in the trading plan. This way you can look at what went wrong without emotional barrier.

One of the main weaponry in forex trading is your trading platform. It is important to find a reliable trading platform with no hidden costs, tight spreads, live quotes, forex news, fast withdrawals and deposits, sensible terms and conditions, professional technical and customer support. Since trading platforms are offered by forex brokers it is your responsibility to find a broker you can trust. I suggest looking for a forex broker that offers unlimited demo account (meaning that it doesn’t expire after 30 days or so). This can help you tremendously in properly testing your trading strategy.

It is true that there is plenty of spam out there. Not everyone who offers coaching is qualified to do so. However, keeping that in mind, forex coaches, trading courses and mentors can help tremendously in understanding what forex is all about. You don’t have to learn forex basics in solitude – visit forums, talk to other traders and even pay for a successful trading guru. In the long run paid lessons and guidance saves you thousands of dollars from mistakes you are bound to make as a beginner.

Developing a good system takes time. Don’t try to squeeze it or copy others – it won’t work. Every trader is different whether financially, physically and/or psychologically. Whether you like it or not, you have to develop your own system. Sometimes it takes years to eventually develop the right strategy that fits your trading style. So, once again, patience is a virtue!

Once you have a system that works, start exercising your nerves and emotions. It is easy to follow the trading plan for a while. However once your trading account starts doubling in size, so does the stress level. Increased amount of fear and greed makes a trader deviate from the system.

Honestly speaking, there is no such thing as part-time forex trading. If you cannot invest enough time, better leave the idea of becoming a trader for good. You have to watch the graphs most of the day and if you already have a full-time job, it is barely possible to keep up with both.

Once you have a good trading system, which you demo tested for as long as possible, it is time to go live. I suggest opening live account with small deposit for starters for test drive. Now you can really compare the live trades with demo trades to make sure strategy is working properly and things are running as expected. Bear in mind, however, that live trading outcomes always slightly differ from demo account.

Most importantly, be patient. I have said it many times before, but in order to increase your chances of success, you have to take things slow. Forex trading is indeed dynamic environment and you can earn thousands in couple of minutes, but rushing things can only hurt your ability to think clear and follow the trading plan. Some things never change – patience is the necessary ingredient in forex trading recipe.

Round Numbers Strategy in Forex Trading

Technical analysis allows a trader to examine the market with support and resistance, moving averages, Fibonacci and many other techniques. One specific part of analysis that catches a great amount of attention is the round numbers. How to use round numbers in trading?

What are Round Numbers?

We use round numbers in our daily life all the time. Just like you round up $9.75 into $10, you can anticipate that most stop losses in forex trading will be around the nearby round numbers. Why does this happen? Most traders make their next decision at round numbers:

“As soon as it gets to 4.200 I am out”

“When 3.500 breaks I am going long”

What does it mean to us as traders and how can you use this? First of all, it means that round numbers are special. In forex market you can see the pull of the round numbers on daily basis.

People are naturally attracted to the order of round numbers and as a trader you have to be aware of this behavior to use it in making proper decisions.

The use of round numbers in forex trading is to seek for price action signals at or nearby round numbers areas. The more you trade, the more convincing it becomes that round numbers plays an important role in the structure and behavior of price action.

Types of Round Numbers

This is one of the strongest types of round numbers. You can see that levels such as 1.0000 takes months to finally be broken by either bulls or bears.

This is also one of the crucial levels of support or resistance. You may notice a lot of 1.4000 in the market.

Numbers such as 1.2400 are plenty to be found and become significant zones for market outcome for a selected session.

How to use Round Numbers?

Round numbers are psychological support/resistance levels. For example, if EUR/USD is going upwards and reaches 1.5000, you will notice strong bearish reactions, because a lot of traders believe that the currency pair cannot go any higher than that, so they sell in fear of losing their profits.

Traders can use the round numbers as a strategy. Psychological levels are 00, 25, 50 and 75. In order to use the numbers, you need to go short when market goes up and one of these levels is reached. This method might not throw tones of pips your way, but it sure is a great scalping method.

Knowing the value of money, spotting which currencies are set to rise and fall and having a general sense of the financial market are essential skills when dealing in the foreign exchange. However, another skill in which a trader must be proficient is the movement of money. While it’s one thing to make money in the Forex world, it’s another to actually realise any profits in a physical form.

Transporting funds to and from an FX broker can be somewhat trickier than many would expect; especially if a trader is in certain regions of the world. Indeed, because Forex brokers offer services to customers across the globe there is a need for them to offer a range of deposit and withdrawal options. For many investors the most convenient choice is their debit or credit card, however sometimes this isn’t always a viable option.

To help giving aspiring traders the greatest financial flexibility possible most brokers will offer PayPal as a deposit/withdrawal option. Known as the leading online financial exchange in the world, PayPal provides secure third-party processing between the user and the site they wish to conduct a transaction with. For both brokers and traders this flexibility is fantastic because it gives them a safe way to transfer money without having to deal directly with each other’s banks.

At fxBrokerSearch we realise that having the ability to choose a site that offers multiple processing options is crucial and that’s why we’ve compiled the best PayPal brokers on the market. Through our extensive market research and analysis we’ve collated the top FX brokers offering PayPal as a deposit/withdrawal option and filtered them into one handy table.

By searching through the list below users can see our top PayPal brokers and the trading conditions they offer. Ranked by usability, efficiency and cost, we’ve made it easy for someone to choose the best FX broker for their needs.

Negotiation training institute

Negotiation training instituteNegotiations Workshop: Strategy Vs Tactics

I have spent over twenty-five years now studying, practicing, and teaching martial arts. This includes time spent in the United States Army and living in Japan and Korea studying martial arts there. Two important concepts that I have studied, taught, and written about in a martial or military format are equally important when teaching negotiation. These concepts are strategy and tactics. Sometimes I see people mistakenly using one term when they actually mean the other. In this short article, I want to describe the differences between strategy and tactics as well as illustrate the relationship between the two.

Strategy is the overall, big picture, plan, which includes goals or desired outcomes. In the military, strategy is the utilization, during both peace and war, or all of a nations forces, through large-scale, long-range planning and development, to ensure security or victory. Another definition would be a plan, method, or series of maneuvers or stratagems for obtaining a specific goal or result. A well known strategy used by the Allies in WWII was that of strategic bombing in Europe. The Army Air Corps strategic bombing doctrine was based on the theory that a bombing force could pound the adversary until its industrial base was destroyed, and with it, its ability and will to wage war. While this example helps illustrate the concept of strategy, it is unfortunate that many of us have probably encountered negotiators that worked from a very similar strategic doctrine.

Strategic negotiation is simply the act of devising and carrying out a well thought out plan to achieve your desired outcomes. Often, it is your plan to convince another party to give you something that you want and on your terms. The first thing you must determine when developing a negotiation strategy is what do you really want? What is the purpose of the negotiation? Do you want to purchase a house or commercial building? Do you want a raise in your salary? Do you want to settle a matter that is being litigated? Once you know what you want, and have devised a strategy, you can implement the tactics that will help you achieve your desired outcome.

When one is developing strategy, it is often easier to break your planning into phases. Here is a simple model used with martial arts and warfare that you will notice fits with negotiating equally well:

1. Identify your strategic objectives

2. Collect intelligence

3. Plan for environment

4. Program for engagement

Tactics are simply the means by which you carry out your strategy. In the military tactics deals with the use and deployment of troops in actual combat, more specifically, it is the military science that deals with securing objectives set by strategy, especially the technique of deploying and directing troops, ships, and aircraft in effective maneuvers against an enemy. In our example above with the Army Air Corps, the tight formations employed by the bombers to make the best use of the bombers heavy armament and prevent German fighters from singling out and swarming on lone planes is an example of a tactic used to help carry out the strategy. Another tactic was the employment of high altitude bombing when low level bombing proved too vulnerable to anti-aircraft fire.

One must be very careful not to focus upon activity, means, or tactics at the expense of accomplishment, achieving goals, or desired outcomes. Above all else, obtaining ones objectives in negotiations should be paramount. Of course, the tactics, activities or means we use should always be appropriate and ethical, but we must remember they are merely the ways to attain desired outcomes. Examples of negotiation tactics include things such as:

1. Giving ultimatums

2. Nibbling

3. Shocked or surprised looks

4. Good cop/Bad cop

5. Walk away

There are many tactics people use while negotiating. There is nothing wrong with using certain tactics to carry out your strategy and obtain your objectives. It is not necessarily unethical, deceptive, or unscrupulous to use negotiating tactics, even though some may want you to believe this. Yes, some tactics may be unethical, and as I stated above, we should always be appropriate and ethical, but there is nothing wrong with being competitive.

No, I have not forgotten the Principled Negotiation strategy taught by Fisher and Ury in Getting To Yes. However, I also realize that sometimes we will be in competitive negotiations, and knowing various tactics can give us the edge. As an attorney, I realize some clients hire an attorney to be their pit bull, and while win-win might be the ideal, some of these clients only care about a win in their column. Practically speaking, we attorneys must deliver for our clients if we want to stay in business. In other fields of business, you run across competitive bargaining as well, and knowing tactics may be quite beneficial. Additionally, knowing various negotiation tactics, and the counterattacks, prepare us for when others use them against us.


Strategy and tactics are concepts as old as conflict itself. By understanding the differences and relationships between the two, the successful negotiator can better plan and implement the strategies and tactics to reach specific desired outcomes. There is a reason so many successful business people study the ancient military classics such as The Art of War and The Book of Five Rings. There is a reason why so many successful business people play strategic military games such as Go and Chess. The lessons learned from military sources, especially strategy and tactics, can easily be adapted to help us be better business people, better litigators, and better negotiators.

May 31, 2011 | Updated Jul 31, 2011

Dan Solin Author of the Smartest series of books

The headline of a recent article in Barron's caught my attention: "Fire Your Hedge Fund, Hire Your Congressman."

It reports on a study indicating that members of the House of Representatives outperform the average stock market investor by 6.8 percent a year, which is superior to the performance of the best hedge funds. Members of the Senate were even better traders. Their outperformance was an amazing 10.7 percent a year. The study looked at the period from 1985-2001.

How did they do it? The authors concluded: "We find strong evidence that Members of the House have some type of non-public information which they use for personal gain."

Congress is not alone in figuring out that insider trading is profitable. Recent news reports include:

The conviction of Raj Rajaratnam, co-founder of Galleon Group, for insider trading;

Allegations by the SEC that Donald L. Johnson, a former managing director of The NASDAQ Stock Market, engaged in insider trading on confidential information that he allegedly stole while working in a market intelligence unit that communicates with companies in advance of market-moving public announcements.

A guilty plea to insider trading by Barai Capital Management LP founder Samir Barai. In a related case, Sonny Nguyen, a former senior financial analyst for Nvidia pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit securities and wire fraud.

Senator Charles E. Grassley is examining 20 stock trades by mega hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors. The trades were made around the time of market moving events, like merger announcements.

These insiders understand something your broker doesn't. A combination of the efficient markets theory (EMT) and the wisdom of crowds make stock picking a zero sum game.

EMT holds that attempts to "beat the markets" are futile because share prices incorporate all relevant information. Therefore, the current price of every stock is a fair price. There is no mispricing.

The "wisdom of crowds" was coined in a book of that name by James Surowiecki. The premise is that the judgment of a diverse crowd is more accurate than one made by any single member of the group. As applied to stocks, it would mean that the pricing set by millions of stock traders looking at all publicly available information about a stock is better than your judgment or the judgment of you and your broker.

Industry insiders accept EMT and the wisdom of crowds, but they are a persevering group, devoid of morality or ethics, in their quest for higher returns, more assets and more fees. They have gamed the system by creating inefficiencies in an otherwise efficient market. Trading on inside information achieves this goal.

Unlike most investors, these industry pros don't fight the overwhelming data that has persuaded them they can't beat the markets. You and your broker and "market beating" advisers can learn a lot from their acumen. Don't fight market forces. Join them and capture market returns with a globally diversified portfolio of low management fee index funds in an asset allocation suitable for you.

Creating market inefficiencies is possible, but those convicted of insider trading (other than members of Congress!) will also be trading their Brioni suits for prison stripes. Is it worth it?

21introduction for forex options21. Introduction for Forex Options

Forex options are a great way to invest in the forex. This introduction will give you the basic information you need to start understanding forex options and how they can be a great tool for risk control and speculation.

About trading forex options

Forex options are available from certain forex dealers in over-the-counter versions, just like spot forex contracts. If you are interested in setting up a demo account with a dealer that offers forex options, click here. Forex options are also available as exchange-traded securities, which means you will need an options broker to trade them.

You can buy and sell forex options. When you buy, or go long, a forex option, your risk is limited to the amount you paid for the option. When you sell, or go short, an option, your risk is unlimited, just like going long or short a currency pair. In this section we will talk about using options as a long trade. In later sections, we will talk about how you can use options on the short side.

Types of basic forex options

Puts: Put options increase in value if the price of the currency pair drops. If the price of the currency pair rises the put will decrease in value. A put gives you the right to sell a currency pair for a specific price. That means if the price of the currency pair is dropping, your put is going to increase in value because you have the ability to sell the currency pair for a higher price.

Calls: Call options increase in value if the price of the currency pair rises. If the price of the currency pair drops the call will decrease in value. A call option gives you the right to buy a currency pair for a specific price. That means if the price of the currency pair is rising, your call is going to increase in value because you have the ability to buy the currency pair for a lower price.

Characteristics of forex options:

Expiration: Forex options are only good for a specific amount of time. You can choose the expiration date when you first purchase the option. For many of the strategies we use at PFX, buying an option that expires in 30 days is usually sufficient Sometimes you may need to sell the option before expiration to prevent it from expiring worthless.

Strike price: Forex options have a specific strike price attached to them. If you buy a call on the GBP/USD because you think it will rise in value, the strike price is the fixed price at which you could buy the GBP/USD. If your strike price was 2.0000 and the currency pair was priced at 2.0250, you would have the ability make a profit of 250 pips by exercising that option. But you don’t actually have to exercise the option to make a profit. You can simply sell the option back on the open market, and make the same profit.

Although there are many strike prices to choose from, in this lesson, we will concentrate on the at-the-money strike price, which is equal to the current spot price. In a later lesson, we will talk about out-of-the-money and in-the-money strike prices and how you can use these in other options strategies.

Leverage: Over-the-counter forex options enjoy the same flexible leverage you enjoy with spot forex contracts. The exchange-listed forex options described above control around 10,000 units of the base currency, just like a mini-spot contract. If a contract costs $190 your leverage is approximately 50:1. That is comparable with a forex spot contract.

Forex strategies

Strategy #1—Speculating with a long option

Let’s assume that you think the EUR/USD is going to rise during the next week or two. To take advantage of this rise, you could buy the forex contract or buy a call option. The call is a good alternative because it has a fixed amount of risk associated with it but could still accumulated unlimited profits. In the video, we will cover this situation and show you how the call increases in value as prices change. If you are analyzing a pair that you think will decline in value, you could buy a put instead of a call to take advantage of the downside opportunity.

Because you cannot lose more than the amount you paid for the call or put option, the option acts like a stop loss. Most traders will not hold an option until it becomes worthless. But if you were determined not to exit the trade, at least you know that you won’t be surprised by the worst case scenario.

Strategy #2—Hedging risk with a long option

Assume you are long the AUD/USD and that the pair is close to resistance, but you believe it is going to break up through resistance and continue moving higher. A surprise decline could eat a lot of profits very quickly, and you want to protect your position. You could set a stop loss that is close to the market, but you have a very high chance of being stopped out on a whipsaw. This is a very common frustration for new and old forex traders. What if instead of setting a stop loss, you bought a put option?

If you buy the put and the pair drops, your gains on the put will offset the losses on the pair itself. This will caps your losses to the downside. If the pair rises, the put will lose value, which will partially offset some of your gains on the pair. But as long as the potential gains are greater than the cost of the put, the trade is still worth it. We will cover this trade and its potential outcomes in this lesson’s video.

Historical Intraday FX Data

Joined Dec 2002

this is a bit of a cheeky request for help perhaps. But there's no harm in asking and as my hero Delboy says - He who dares Rodney.

I have tried the above mentioned free websites for downloading historical intraday forex data.

I have had little success in successfully downloading the data, converting it to ts2000i gloabalserver/xpo format, importing it into ts2000i and displaying the data in a chart. Has anybody else manages to do this?

If so, would you be willing to download some intraday 1 minute (or 5 minute if 1 minute isn't possible) data for EUR/USD or GBP/USD, and email it to me with any necessary instructions?

If so, please send it to bgeoffttiscali. co. uk. Please do not send more than 2 mb.

If it is not possible to send from the above mentioned sites, and you do have some recent intraday data in the currencies and formats that I seek that you wouldn't mind passing on, please feel free to send it to me also.

Many thanks

2highly profitable forex news trading strategies that matter

2highly profitable forex news trading strategies that matter2 Highly Profitable Forex News Trading Strategies that Matter



In my previous post, we identified the Forex news reports that are trade worthy. Knowing what the tradable news items are is one thing, but knowing how to trade these news releases is another.

With this at the back of our minds, I would like to share with you two highly profitable Forex news strategies that I have used with great success over several years. Both are highly profitable and can be mastered in a short time.

Forex News Trading Strategy 1 – John Wayne

Let’s say you want to trade the next Retail Sales reports and plan to use EURUSD for the trade. Forecast is for a 0.2% increase in retail sales. It is the usual practice to use triggers for the trade. Triggers have to have enough deviation from the consensus numbers to match the required volatility that would make the news item worth trading. For the retails sales, a trigger number of 0.1% is sufficient.

It is essential to know your trigger numbers before the actual numbers are released. This helps you decide faster if the news release is tradable or not.

Step by step:

Get the forecast numbers and the trigger numbers on the buy and sell side. If you don’t know where to get them, download FxPulse. It’s free and displays the forecast all needed numbers directly on your chart.

Write both numbers down.

When the news comes out, place your trade immediately if your trigger numbers allow you to do so. Personally I use the 20% rule.

Shortly before the news comes out (30-40 seconds) open the order window and set max deviation to five Pips. Sure, slippage is an unwanted side effect from news trading but as the market moves fast during news releases, it is something we need to live with.

If you are doing it right, your news trades will look like on the screenshot below:

Although it sounds very easy (Like taking a candy from a little child. BTWthat’s something you should not do) it will take some practice to master the “John Wayne” news trading strategy.

When you just start with it, use a demo account, and once you feel ready for “lice action” use small lot size for the first 10-15 news trades.

Forex News Trading Strategy 2 – Straddle Trading

The straddle trading strategy is just as the name suggests; you are placing two pending orders (Sell Stop and Buy Stop) on both sides of the divide, effectively straddling the market price. The buy order should be placed 20-25 pips above the actual price, the sell order 20-25 pips below. If your broker supports one cancels the other (OCO) orders, please use this type of order for the straddle trade.

When the actual number from the news comes out, one order will be executed while the other order will be canceled. The straddle strategy works well in most cases.

The problem usually arises with the timing of the placement of the orders. There have been cases when extreme volatility caused choppy price swings to trigger both trades. As such, the Forex straddle strategy is not recommended for high impact volatile news releases like the NFP.

Step by step:

1) Shortly before the news is released, place a Buy Stop and Sell Stop orders (OCO if supported by your broker) 20-25 pips away from the market price. SL for the buy order should be the price from the sell order and visa verse.

2) When the news is released and the market starts to moves in one direction you have not much to do. Just close the other pending order manually and enjoy the ride and make sure you get the most profit out from the trade.

Tip: There are several expert advisors available what places trades automatically before the news comes out. Commercial and free versions. If you are interested in a straddle Expert Advisor, I recommend to stay away from the commercial versions. They are basically nothing else then copies from free versions you can find in several Forex forums.

If it really this easy to trade the news, why do many traders fail at it?

The main issue is that currency traders need to understand that different news items respond in different ways, and as a trader, you will have to understand how and why this happens, then practice and do your homework.

Trade the news only with a broker what offers STP or DMA, be disciplined and don’t expect to become a professional news trader within a few days. Don’t be greedy and start with small lot sizes (0.01 or 0.10). You can go a step further by getting your news in real time using FX Pulse, which is just perfect for news trading and 100% free. You can download FX Pulse here .

Happy News Trading!

P. S.: Some comments please!

Covered calls

Covered callsCovered Calls

Covered calls are involved in a strategy that combines a long stock position and a short call option.

The call options are sold in equal amounts against the long underlying shares. The strike price and expiration date of the calls can be chosen based on investment objective, market view and risk appetite.

When you write a call against a long stock position it serves two purposes. It can generate income and it can provide some downside protection.

For example you purchase 100 shares of Microsoft for $25 per share, and you sell one call option for $5 per contract at a strike price of $30.

Lets look at the outcomes

The underlying moves higher than the strike price. In this case, your option will be assigned. Meaning youll be obligated to sell your 100 shares at $30.

But remember that you collected a premium of $5 per share for selling the covered call. So effectively, youve sold your stock at $35 per share. Subtract your initial price of the stock from the premium of the strike collected to give you your profit.

What else can happen

The underlying stock could remain stable at $25 a share. Here, you keep the shares, and keep the premium.

So, your adjusted basis for your next covered call write is the original price paid for the stock minus the amount of money you collected ($5) for the call option. Which is a substantial gain.

Lastly the underlying stock can move lower than your strike price.

This moves you into protection mode. The amount of protection is equal to you premium collected when you put on the position. So youve effectively lowered your cost basis on the stock by the amount of the premium.

Overall, covered calls can be a great way to reduce your overall risk when investing in common stocks, and generate some income to boot.

This is precisely why covered call are used so extensively by both amateur and professional investors.

Stocks basics introduction

Stocks basics introductionStocks Basics: Introduction

Wouldn't you love to be a business owner without ever having to show up at work? Imagine if you could sit back, watch your company grow, and collect the dividend checks as the money rolls in! This situation might sound like a pipe dream, but it's closer to reality than you might think.

As you've probably guessed, we're talking about owning stocks. This fabulous category of financial instruments is, without a doubt, one of the greatest tools ever invented for building wealth. Stocks are a part, if not the cornerstone, of nearly any investment portfolio. When you start on your road to financial freedom, you need to have a solid understanding of stocks and how they trade on the stock market.

Over the last few decades, the average person's interest in the stock market has grown exponentially. What was once a toy of the rich has now turned into the vehicle of choice for growing wealth. This demand coupled with advances in trading technology has opened up the markets so that nowadays nearly anybody can own stocks.

Despite their popularity, however, most people don't fully understand stocks. Much is learned from conversations around the water cooler with others who also don't know what they're talking about. Chances are you've already heard people say things like, "Bob's cousin made a killing in XYZ company, and now he's got another hot tip. " or "Watch out with stocks--you can lose your shirt in a matter of days!" So much of this misinformation is based on a get-rich-quick mentality, which was especially prevalent during the amazing dotcom market in the late '90s. People thought that stocks were the magic answer to instant wealth with no risk. The ensuing dotcom crash proved that this is not the case. Stocks can (and do) create massive amounts of wealth, but they aren't without risks. The only solution to this is education. The key to protecting yourself in the stock market is to understand where you are putting your money.

It is for this reason that we've created this tutorial: to provide the foundation you need to make investment decisions yourself. We'll start by explaining what a stock is and the different types of stock, and then we'll talk about how they are traded, what causes prices to change, how you buy stocks and much more.

Are you looking to trade a falling market?

Index warrants provide you with an investment vehicle to trade market direction - whether bullish or bearish. They provide exposure to the broader market with minimal capital outlay and limitation of loss. Index warrants are available over several domestic and international indices such as the SP ASX 200 and the US based SP 500 index. If you are unsure of which stocks to trade in the market due to volatility, index put options allow you the opportunity to trade the direction of the market on a broader scale.

Currently, ASX quotes warrants issued over several leading domestic and overseas indices. A unique 3-letter code identifies each index, for example the SP 200 is XJO.

Example - Trading the SP ASX 200 Index (XJO)

Warrant Description - Purchased an At-the-money put warrant (ASX Code: XJOTMV)

Conclusion - Index declines magnify put warrant returns

During the one month period the SP ASX 200 benchmark index declined by 15.01%. The decline in the SP ASX 200 resulted in a 52.47% return on the XJOTMV index put warrants. Index put warrants provide leveraged exposure with minimum capital outlay and limitation of losses.

How to keep aforex trading journal and make it your personal mentorHow to keep a Forex trading journal and make it your personal mentor

The Forex trading journal is the most underutilized, and the most neglected aspect in most traders arsenal. In this article I am going to reveal how to really make a Forex trading journal work for you, and show you ways to use your journal to improve your trading dramatically.

Weve all heard it all before, and understand the importance of treating Forex as a business. It’s one of the first things you need to come to terms with when you transition from being a novice, to a professional trader. Running a business means keeping records. If you dont keep records, its only a matter of time before you lose complete control of your business.

The human brain is powerful, but it can’t keep track of every single variable. Try to take on too much, and your mental integrity breaks down. Ive seen firsthand, what happens when business owners neglect their bookkeeping. The end result was they spent more time stressing trying to find important information. Forex trading is no different, if youre not keeping a Forex trading journal youre setting yourself up for failure.

The problem with most Forex Trading Journals

Youve probably come across Forex trading journal templates that have you mindlessly crunching numbers. Figures like your trade entry, stop, target price, the pair you trade, trade risk and trade return, etc. The boring stuff.

Youve got to ask the question, What is this information really going to do for me? Most of the information in common trade journals can be found in your trade history through your broker, with the exception of a few calculations that will probably just offend you or bring down your spirits. Lets face it, if you were doing well with your trading, you wouldnt be reading this article. Youre here because you want a practical solution to correct your Forex trading mistakes.

Okay granted, it’s good to know how well youre doing overall. But recording numbers alone is going to have a minimal impact on improving your future trading performance. For example, if your Forex trading journal is full of losing trades those numbers wont give you a solution. Its going to make feel like the worst trader who ever lived, trust me I know, Ive been there.

This kind of number crunching is just not a practical, or a productive solution to most traders problems. Youre losing trades, so what do you do now? What’s going wrong? What can you do to fix the problem and move forward? These are the questions most Forex trading journals don’t answer. Those few traders who do actually keep a trading journal are under utilizing the full potential of keeping a Forex trading journal.

A journal should be used as a self-improvement tool

Even with the best technical trading system, the ‘holy grail’ if you will, you will not succeed if your head isnt in the right place. Most traders fail because of psychological reasons. The Forex trading journal is the perfect tool for highlighting your own weaknesses, and building on top of them to solidify mental toughness. This is the way to break the chains holding you down and give you the power to move forward.

It’s not about the numbers, it’s about THE experiences

Sure, record the typical information about your trades like price levels etc.; but more importantly, also include your feelings, thoughts and emotions inside your Forex trading journal . Dont just record how you feel when you place a trade. Have a space where you can record thoughts before, during and after the trade. Don’t be shy, everything must be recorded. You’re only hurting yourself by holding back information. Your Forex trading journal is private and the only person who needs to look at it is you. There is no reason to put it on public display when people are looking over your shoulder in can give you performance anxiety.

The extra data in your Forex trading journal is critical for making the journal help you perform the way you need it to. You will be able see what emotions were present when you suffered losses, and even what emotions were present/absent when you had winning trades. You’re keeping a Forex trading journal to reinforce good behavior. You need to highlight weaknesses so they can be avoided in the future.

By including the psychological aspect of your trading in your journal, it’s easy to change your actions from destructive to constructive. A correctly utilized Forex trading journal will remove any feeling of being random, or the feeling of being lost. The Forex trading journal will help cement consistency in your trading one crucial element to your trading success.


As a Forex trader, you are the director of your own Forex trading business. Youre accountable for every decision you make. There is no one else to redirect the blame to, every decision falls back on you. Good or bad. Youre accountable for following a trading plan, using proper money management and keeping records. If you neglect your responsibilities as a business owner, no one will be there to bail you out. Forex is a cut throat industry, you sink or swim. You need to do everything you can to ensure your head remains above water.

Being fully accountable is going to actually make your life a lot easier in many ways. The trading industry is filled with losers, excuse makers, pretenders and people with unrealistic expectations of Forex trading . These guys dont take accountability seriously and will blame the market, or their broker when something goes wrong.

Your Forex trading journal is a superior way to reinforce accountability. If you step out of the confines of your trading plan, dont use your better judgement, or just simply let emotions take over your actions. All of this needs to be recorded in your trading journal. No excuses!

I cant stress this enough, no matter how embarrassed you may be about your mistakes. Dont run away, face them head on! Its essential to record everything, and have this data in your Forex trading journal for future reference. Recording negativity in your journal may seem counter constructive; but you can use this data. and turn it into a positive . It’s not about beating yourself up; it’s about self-improvement and moving forward. But you cant do that unless youre honest with yourself.

Making sure that what didn’t kill you, WILL make you stronger

We all know very well the emotional roller coaster of being a Forex trader. We can use our past mistakes as a means to become better traders – so that the loss “experience” was not a complete waste. In your Forex trading journal, you should be able to look through your losing trades; each position should have recorded your reasons for taking the trade, thought process, and actions throughout each position.

Sure we know that Forex losing streaks are very normal. What you’re looking to identify are the common denominators that keep appearing on trades youve lost. If you go through your losing positions and keeping seeing I moved my stop too early comments, then you can safely conclude adjusting your stop loss is not doing you any favors, and only hurting your trading performance.

Here is another one. You may see groups of losing streaks, and notice in your Forex trading journal recorded thoughts of desperation while you were trying to make up for previous losses. There wasnt any good reason for taking each trade. These positions were opened from a feeling of urgency to recoup recent stop outs.

What about winning trades? Go through your Forex trading journal and find consistencies with all the trades that worked out. Perhaps one recurring comment surfacing is “set and forget the trade”. You stuck to the plan left the market do what it had to do. Or maybe you recorded “as soon as I took the trade I closed my charting software down and only check the market once a day at the New York close. Removing any temptation to intervene on my trade”

Every trader is different and they are going to have unique challenges to face in their trading. By using the Forex trading journal in this way, you can quickly focus on the areas that need attention and really get to the ‘root of your problems’.

Here is a list of things you should consider including in your Forex trading journal…

Trade Date


Signal taken

Entry/stop/exit price

Entry method

Forecasted risk reward

Actual Trade ROI

$ Gained

$ Lost

Reasons for taking trade

How you feel when you take the trade

Did you stick to your trading plan

What actions did you take while the trade was open and your reasons for it

Did your actions effect the trade negatively or positively

What emotions influenced your trade

How do you think you could do better in the future

Before taking action, consult your Forex Trading journal

Another powerful way to use your Forex trading journal is to review it before taking any action in the market. Prior to opening a trade, have a look through your journal and refresh yourself on what’s been working for you and what hasnt. Remind yourself where your own thought process is working against you and avoid repeating past mistakes.

For example, you may be thinking about entering a pin bar trade . The original plan was to go for the retracement entry. The market doesnt look like it’s going to hit your retracement entry price and is moving without you. Youre thinking of jumping in anyway because you “dont want to miss out”.

After you look through your Forex trading journal, you can quickly reflect on the many times when you have entered trades impulsively in the past with an undesirable outcome; this should be a red flag to you. Alarm bells should ring inside your head when you have the urge to enter a Forex trade on the back of you chasing price around the chart again. If market breaks out and ends up turning into a breakout trap, your Forex trading journal would have saved you from entering a bad position.

Dont just consult the Forex trading journal when youre opening a trade. Review it when you have those urges to intervene on an open position, like: moving your stop, closing the trade early, or maybe even removing your stop. Your previous experiences should be able to advise, or mentor you to help you decide if it is a good idea or not.

A Forex trading journal is there to profile your personality, your behavioral patterns and what works best for you and your trading account . It is a real wakeup call when youre about to do something stupid. Forex trading journals are like having an experienced trader next to you, giving the best advice for each situation.

A Forex trader’s best friend

The Forex trading journal is the ultimate ‘mentor’. A journal remains 100% logical at all times. They dont get emotional and are not influenced by external factors. When you start utilizing the full potential of a Forex trading journal, it becomes your best friend each time a trading decision needs to be made.

The Forex trading journal keeps you accountable, forces you to learn from your mistakes and gives you crucial feedback that you need to develop your trading skills. By highlighting your accomplishments and red flagging your dangerous trading mistakes, there is no better way of self improvement to help you reach the ultimate level of confidence in front of the charts.

Plan your trade then trade your plan’

Remove the randomness and doubt, build a winning mindset and become the disciplined trader. At the start of each day, read through your Forex trading journal to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally before hitting the charts. You will have these thoughts fresh in your head the moment you look at the markets. Its even a good idea to read back through this list each time youre about to make a trading decision. Just keep reminding yourself of the dos and the donts. It’s quite easy to slip out of a disciplined mindset and start making mistakes again without even realizing it. Do everything you can to keep yourself disciplined.

Hopefully after reading this article you view Forex trading journals not as that boring spreadsheet of price data, but a means of: identifying weaknesses, reinforcing strengths, and red flagging your dangerous trading mistakes, there is no better way. If youre ready to move forward from here and embrace trading as your own business (which you are fully accountable for), and finally become a professional trader you can check out our Forex War Room community membership. As a Forex trading community we all support each other, and keep one another on track with trading. Trading can be a lonely venture, its always good to have other like-minded traders to bounce ideas off and socialize with. I hope to see you on the other side.

Until next time, all the best with your price action trading. Please share this article using the social buttons below.

How to start trading trading as abusiness

How to start trading trading as abusinessHow To Start Trading: Trading As A Business

The idea of trading for a living is appealing to many people: you get to be your own boss, set your own schedule and work from home while enjoying virtually unlimited income potential. In addition to these factors, anyone with a computer, Internet connection and a small trading account can give it a try. Unlike many other jobs, no degrees, special training or experience is required.

Because of these factors, people often fail to acknowledge or realize the financial, emotional and time commitments that are required to build a successful trading business. Here are some quick facts about trading:

About 90% of day traders fail within the first year

There is no way to eliminate risk in trading

There is no trading system that wins 100% of the time

You will always have losing trades, even if you are a rock star trader

You need money to make money – it will take a long time to get rich with a small trading account

Successful independent traders can earn a comfortable income, but most do not become “filthy rich”

The ease with which you can start trading (just open a trading account and hit the “buy” button) in no way implies that becoming a successful and profitable trader is easy. Many of the 90% of traders who fail within the first year do so because they start trading without having developed any type of logical business or trading plan. Any business entered into with such a lack of planning is likely to fail.

There is also a lot of deception associated with learning the business of trading. Late night infomercials and hundreds of Web sites would have you believe that trading is easy and that anyone can generate a huge and consistent income from the financial markets. While there may be the rare case where a trader manages to make a huge amount of money in a short time, this is not the norm. For most people, trading involves a lot of hard work before becoming successful.

As a business, trading requires constant research, evaluation and discipline. There are no guarantees in the trading business, and you could work a 40-hour week and end up losing money. Anyone considering trading should make sure they have both the personality and financial means to take on this type of business activity.

You might ask yourself:

Am I driven to succeed?

How do I handle losing?

Do I have time to dedicate to learning the business of trading?

Can I stick to a plan?

Do I have my family’s support?

Do I have money that I can afford to lose?

How do I deal with stress?

Do I have realistic expectations?

If you want to become a part-time or full-time trader, it is important that you take the time to research and plan your trading business; these are essential steps in your overall success as a trader. This is not a profession at which you will become skilled overnight. Traders who start trading too soon or without a well-researched trading plan often find themselves back at the beginning, but with a lot less trading capital. Traders who have realistic expectations and who treat trading as a business – and not as a hobby or a get-rich-quick scheme – are more likely to beat the odds and become part of the group of traders who succeed.

The international trade game

The international trade gameYou are here

Contact: John Sloman University of the West of England john. slomanbristol. ac. uk Published September 2002


This game is a version of the World Trade Game developed by the Third World development charity Action Aid. I have amended it to be suitable for students beginning a course in economics, economic development or international trade, although it could be used with students studying related subjects.

I also use it as part of a year-12 open day at UWE in early July for students who have just completed AS Economics and are thinking of studying Economics at university.

The game is fun to play; it needs no computing facilities and uses only very basic equipment, such as scissors, pencils, rulers and paper; preparing the materials for the game usually takes about 20-30 minutes and, except for paper, all the materials used for the game can be reused. You need only one member of staff for up to 240 students; all the necessary instructions can be given to the participants within 2 minutes; and there are many economic lessons that can be drawn from the game.

Overview of the game

Students are divided into teams, each of which acts as a separate country, with between two and ten students in each team. There are five or six countries in a game. A game thus can be played with between 10 and 60 students. More than one game can be played simultaneously, if the room is big enough, but there must be no interaction between the games.

Countries compete against each other to manufacture paper shapes (circles, triangles, rectangles, etc.) and sell them to an international commodity market trader at posted prices, which vary with supply and demand. The objective for each country is to make as much money as possible.

There are three types of country in a game:

two rich industrialised countries;

one or two middle-income countries;

two low-income countries.

Students are not told this; they find out as they play the game.

The game requires a large flat room, with loose tables and chairs.

Room layout

Only one lecturer is required as game leader even if more than one game is being played, but one additional person is required to act as a commodity trader in each game. This person could be a student. It is also useful to have one or two observers for each game. These too can be students. Experienced game leaders could handle up to four simultaneous games (i. e. up to 240 students) if the room is appropriate. The game takes between 45 and 90 minutes to play. This is followed by scoring, reporting by students and adjudication by the lecturer, who will probably want to draw various economic lessons from the game. This all lasts a further 20-45 minutes. Students find the game enjoyable and rapidly enter into its spirit.

Preparing for the game

You will need to do four things.

Prepare an envelope of resources for each country

Put up posters on the wall showing the shapes, their measurements and their initial values (normally two per game). These posters are enlarged (e. g. from A4 to A3), so that students cannot simply trace out the shapes. (Microsoft Word format) (Rich Text Format)

Prepare an envelope for the commodity trader (normally one per game).

Prepare an envelope of resources for yourself as game leader

If you are playing two or more games (or worlds) simultaneously, you will need to separate them with a line of tables or some other barrier, as students must not cross from one game to another.

Starting off the game

Tell the students to leave all bags and any equipment (e. g. paper or pens) at the front and then to sit themselves around the clusters of tables. Distribute the envelopes to each of the countries.

The game requires minimal, but clear instructions immediately that students have sat round the tables and before they have opened their envelopes. The dynamic of the game requires that there is no preamble explaining the purpose of the game and certainly no summary from the lecturer explaining what the game is supposed to illustrate. It is important for the students to work out what they should do.

Once the instructions are understood, it is time for the lecturer to tell students how long they have to play the game (usually 45 minutes) and to announce the start of manufacturing.

During the game

At the beginning of the game there will be a lot of confusion and students will have many questions, such as Where can I get scissors?, Why have we only got paper?, Can we buy things off other countries?, Can we combine with other countries?, Can we have a loan? Resist all temptation to answer these questions. Just repeat what you said at the beginning. After a minute or two they should begin moving around the room and trading, but the initiative should come from them, not you. The rich countries (A1 and A2) will probably begin making shapes, as they have all the materials and equipment that they need, but they will soon run out of raw materials and will probably try to buy some paper from other groups.

Role of Observers . Use the observers to report back to you on what is going on. This will help to give you information for the debrief session at the end. For example, get them to find out what is happening to the scissors - the one crucial implement that has to be used for all shapes and is possessed initially by only two countries. Do the rich countries form a scissors cartel? Do they sell one pair to another country; or do they hire them out? Observers should watch how groups negotiate the prices of paper and other materials. They should note the formation and operation of any alliances and deals and any cheating that takes place. Observers should also report to you any malpractice, such as stealing other countries paper, implements or shapes. It is up to you to decide whether you should ignore the problem, thereby encouraging countries to do their own policing, or whether you should impose a punishment, such as suspending them from making shapes for 5 minutes, confiscating certain materials or fining them.

Role of commodity trader . The trader must be careful in measuring the shapes and reject any that have not been cut out. Alternatively, if they have been torn carefully against a ruler, or are only slightly too large or small, a reduced price could be given. You could leave this to the trader to decide, or you could agree a policy in advance. The trader must keep a close eye on the money to prevent students stealing it, preferably keeping it out of their reach. Shapes that have been sold should be put into an envelope or box, again out of reach of students.

Traders should not normally give loans, unless you want to build this in as a feature of the game, in which case you should decide in advance what interest rate to charge - probably a high rate, such as 50 per cent. If loans are allowed, the trader should keep a record of them. In such cases, it might be a good idea to allocate an assistant to the trader. It is easiest for loans not to be repaid, but at the end of the game, when money is totalled, the trader will simply announce how much has to be deducted (outstanding loan plus interest) from each team.

Your role as game leader . You will need to keep in regular contact with the trader. Find out which shapes are being sold in large quantities (probably the triangles and rectangles) and which are hardly being sold at all (probably the circles and the protractor-sized semi-circles). Then blow the whistle and announce that, owing to the forces of demand and supply, the prices of certain shapes have changed. You can choose how much to change the prices, but a dramatic change stimulates more interest and provides a stronger focus for later discussion. For example, when the students are debriefed after they have finished the game, it is easier to refer to the importance of price elasticity of demand and price elasticity of supply when the price changes have been dramatic. For similar reasons, it is better to change prices very infrequently. The price of particular shapes will also affect the value of particular tools. If circles go up in price, this will affect the demand for compasses. This relationship can be identified later in the debriefing.

Extra dimensions can be introduced into the game by simulating the emergence of new technology, new raw materials or new equipment. It is important to make sure that the observers are primed to focus upon the reactions of groups to each change. The debrief will depend heavily on the quality of the information they are able to provide.

The development of new technology can be simulated by giving about 8 coloured small sticky shapes to one of the low-income countries, without indicating the possible use of those shapes. The game leader then goes to one (or both) of the rich or middle-income countries and informs them that the value of a standard shape is trebled if it has a coloured shape attached to it and that one of the low-income countries possesses coloured shapes. This scenario could also simulate the discovery of raw materials in a developing country, which are then developed by a multinational corporation investing in the country and bringing its expertise and technology with it.

You could also increase the stock of capital by selling a further pair scissors by auction. This will need to be done relatively early on in the game and you will need to announce your intention 5 or 10 minutes before you do so. Although the poor countries would dearly like to buy a pair, one of the rich countries is more likely to be successful at the auction. It might then hire out the scissors to a poor country.

As the game progresses, paper will rapidly run out. Trade in paper is likely to take place, with the price of paper rising to meet its value in terms of the shapes that can be made from it. The game can be prolonged by introducing more paper (simulating the discovery of new raw materials). You can do this in two ways. First, you may give some to one or both of the low-income countries. The second way is to sell more paper. A good way of doing this is to hold a paper auction, where you sell about 10 sheets, one at a time. Announce that in 5 minutes time you will be holding an auction and ask for one representative from each country to attend. The two issues are:

How will the price at the auction reflect the value of shapes that can be made from it?

Will the bidders collude to drive down the price?

You can draw lessons from this in the debrief session at the end.

Ending the game

The students should be given a 5-minute warning of when the game will end. There will probably be a flurry of activity as students rush to make shapes with their remaining paper and bring those shapes to the commodity trader. When the game ends, the game leader should ask all the students to return to their countries and to answer three questions:

What was in their envelopes when they opened them?

What implements do they currently own?

How much money do they have?

Collating results and debriefing students

A whiteboard or flip chart can be used to record the results. The answer to the first of the questions (what was in the envelopes?) is known and it is helpful if this information has already been recorded on the flip chart or whiteboard. The answers to the other two questions can be gathered quickly so that the groups can easily compare their experience with that of other groups.

It can be helpful to organise the debriefing into three stages:

Stage 1 . Draw students attention to similarities and differences between the results from different groups. Did the groups that started with the same resources perform in a similar way? How much of the difference between the groups was due to strategies pursued and how much to the initial endowment? It is also appropriate at this stage to pose questions that prompt students to describe how they felt about the game as it developed. For example, the tutor could ask students in the different types of country how they felt when they opened their envelopes.

Stage 2 . The second stage consists of asking the students to indicate ways in which they believe the game simulates the real world and ways in which they believe it is unrealistic. The capacity for simulations to affect students thinking depends a great deal on whether they believe that the world is reflected in the simulation. It is quite usual for some students to dismiss as unrealistic aspects of a simulation that the lecturer is hoping to use to illustrate a theoretical idea.

One of the strengths of this game is that the inherent inequality in resource endowment that gives the game its distinctive character is hard to contest as a reflection of the real world economy. Students are more likely to question the way in which the game simulates the opportunities that these endowments create for different countries and how those opportunities are exploited.

Stage 3 . In the third stage of the debriefing, the tutor aims to help students to compare the way they have analysed their experience in the game with the insights derived from economic ideas and the evidence that economists have assembled. This part of the debrief should be focused on those ideas that have been selected in the desired learning outcomes for the activity. The debriefing naturally begins as a large discussion group led by the tutor. However, if this format is maintained for more than 10-15 minutes, some students will get restless and there will be pressure for the tutor to end the session.

Given that the debriefing represents the tutors main opportunity to develop students thinking, it is important to find ways of avoiding a short and rather low-level discussion. The debriefing session needs to be planned as carefully as the activity. Typically this will involve asking students to discuss a couple of questions and arguments (during stages 2 and 3) within their country groups. In stage 3, when the focus is on economic ideas and evidence, it can be useful to have a small piece of evidence for each group to consider before returning to the whole-group discussion.

Learning outcomes

The International Trade Game has a wide range of potential learning outcomes, and with suitable focus, especially during the process of debriefing, a number of economic topics might be identified and developed more fully. These topics range from elementary trade theory to issues of imperfect information and even debates surrounding international inequality and first and third world relations.

As well as subject-related learning outcomes, the International Trade Game helps develop a number of key skills. Group working and interacting with others are among the most significant. The process of negotiating is also a very strong element within this game.

Pivot Point Trading

You are going to love this lesson. Using pivot points as a trading strategy has been around for a long time and was originally used by floor traders. This was a nice simple way for floor traders to have some idea of where the market was heading during the course of the day with only a few simple calculations.

The pivot point is the level at which the market direction changes for the day. Using some simple arithmetic and the previous days high, low and close, a series of points are derived. These points can be critical support and resistance levels. The pivot level, support and resistance levels calculated from that are collectively known as pivot levels.

Every day the market you are following has an open, high, low and a close for the day (some markets like forex are 24 hours but generally use 5pm EST as the open and close). This information basically contains all the data you need to use pivot points.

The reason pivot points are so popular is that they are predictive as opposed to lagging. You use the information of the previous day to calculate potential turning points for the day you are about to trade (present day).

Because so many traders follow pivot points you will often find that the market reacts at these levels. This give you an opportunity to trade.

If you would rather work the pivot points out by yourself the formula I use is below:

Resistance 3 = High + 2*(Pivot Low)

Resistance 2 = Pivot + (R1 S1)

Resistance 1 = 2 * Pivot Low

Pivot Point = ( High + Close + Low )/3

Support 1 = 2 * Pivot High

Support 2 = Pivot (R1 S1)

Support 3 = Low 2*(High Pivot)

As you can see from the above formula, just by having the previous days high, low and close you eventually finish up with 7 points, 3 resistance levels, 3 support levels and the actual pivot point.

If the market opens above the pivot point then the bias for the day is long trades. If the market opens below the pivot point then the bias for the day is for short trades.

The three most important pivot points are R1, S1 and the actual pivot point.

The general idea behind trading pivot points are to look for a reversal or break of R1 or S1. By the time the market reaches R2, R3 or S2,S3 the market will already be overbought or oversold and these levels should be used for exits rather than entries.

A perfect set would be for the market to open above the pivot level and then stall slightly at R1 then go on to R2. You would enter on a break of R1 with a target of R2 and if the market was really strong close half at R2 and target R3 with the remainder of your position.

Unfortunately life is not that simple and we have to deal with each trading day the best way we can. I have picked a day at random from last week and what follows are some ideas on how you could have traded that day using pivot points.

There are loads of ways to trade this day using pivot points but I shall walk you through a few of them and discuss why some are good in certain situations and why some are bad.

The Breakout Trade

At the beginning of the day we were below the pivot point, so our bias is for short trades. A channel formed so you would be looking for a break out of the channel, preferably to the downside. In this type of trade you would have your sell entry order just below the lower channel line with a stop order just above the upper channel line and a target of S1.

The problem on this day was that, S1 was very close to the breakout level and there was just not enough meat in the trade (13 pips). This is a good entry technique for you. Just because it was not suitable this day, does not mean it will not be suitable the next day.

The Pullback Trade

This is one of my favorite set ups. The market passes through S1 and then pulls back. An entry order is placed below support, which in this case was the most recent low before the pullback. A stop is then placed above the pullback (the most recent high peak) and a target set for S2.

The problem again, on this day was that the target of S2 was to close, and the market never took out the previous support, which tells us that, the market sentiment is beginning to change.

Breakout of Resistance

As the day progressed, the market started heading back up to S1 and formed a channel (congestion area). This is another good set up for a trade. An entry order is placed just above the upper channel line, with a stop just below the lower channel line and the first target would be the pivot line.

If you where trading more than one position, then you would close out half your position as the market approaches the pivot line, tighten your stop and then watch market action at that level. As it happened, the market never stopped and your second target then became R1. This was also easily achieved and I would have closed out the rest of the position at that level.

As I mentioned earlier, there are lots of ways to trade with pivot points. A more advanced method is to use the cross of two moving averages as a confirmation of a breakout. You can even use combinations of indicators to help you make a decision. It might be the cross of two averages and also MACD must be in buy mode.

Mess around with a few of your favorite indicators but remember the signal is a break of a level and the indicators are just confirmation.

It puts employers and professionals in the driving seat and gives them the national support they need to identify and anticipate the key workforce challenges, and to be flexible and responsive in planning and developing their workforce. The Department of Health believes these provider-led arrangements offer the best assurance for future-proofing the way the health and public health workforce is developed.

Liberating the NHS: Developing the Healthcare Workforce builds on responses to earlier public consultations and the advice of the NHS Future Forum.

There are two central planks to the new system - Health Education England (HEE) and the Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs).

HEE will provide national leadership and oversight on strategic planning and development of the health and public health workforce, and allocate education and training resources. HEE will promote high quality education and training that is responsive to the changing needs of patients and local communities - including responsibility for ensuring the effective delivery of important national functions, such as medical trainee recruitment. Once the new education and training system is fully established, HEE will be able to consider to what extent they can be devolved.

The LETBs will be the vehicle for providers and professionals to work with HEE to improve the quality of education and training outcomes so that they meet the needs of service providers, patients and the public.

The Department will set the education and training outcomes for the system as a whole, securing the resources necessary and continuing to set the regulatory, policy and legal framework. It will hold the HEE Board to account for delivery of its strategic objectives.

Indicator basics how to use technical indicatorsIndicator Basics: How To Use Technical Indicators

Searching For The Holy Grail

Most technical indicators highlight a particular aspect of price or volume behavior. Newcomers often attach mystical significance to their favorite indicators, but none are infallible . Technical indicators are great for stock-screening, but, if possible, base final decisions on the price chart.

3A%2F%2Fincrediblecharts%2Findicators%2Findicators. phpreferer=http%3A%2F%2Fincrediblecharts%2Fcb=8e01a7f93d" /%

Keep It Simple

Select a small number of indicators (2 or 3) and use them to confirm signals from each other.

Know Your Indicators

Study their behavior until you know them well . Indicators are like a carpenter's tools: skilled use can produce excellent results, unskilled use may lead to injury.

Use Contrasting Indicators

Select indicators that complement each other and are not based on the same data. For example, three indicators based on closing price will tend to confirm each other; while indicators based respectively on closing price, volume and trading range will often conflict and are therefore more reliable when they do confirm each other.

Trending Ranging Markets

No one indicator is suited to all market conditions . Trend indicators lose money during a ranging market, as fluctuations in a narrow price range whipsaw traders in and out of positions. In a trending market, momentum oscillators give exit signals too early and should only be used to confirm trend indicators.

Volume weighted average price(vwap)trading strategy

Volume weighted average price(vwap)trading strategyVolume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) Trading Strategy

Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) Trading Strategy

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a set of instructions for calculations or a task. A trading algorithm is a model with steps required to trade an order in a specific way. For example, given an order to sell 100,000 shares of a stock, the algorithm can work in various ways. It can either give the rules to place this quantity as a single limit order at the current best market price. Alternatively, it can divide this quantity into segments and execute the order over a couple of hours in the day. The algorithm decides the type, price and quantity for each of these small orders, based on a mixture of historical and live market data. Whatever the algorithm may be, its execution is fully automated through a computerized system which places these orders and monitors them.

Human intervention is generally not required in algorithmic trading. However, as per the algorithm the computerized system can be controlled by human trader in real time for modifying or cancelling orders.

A simple algorithmic trading example is discussed below. The order is to sell 100,000 shares of a stock XYZ over the next four hours. A very simple, though impractical, algorithm could be to sell 2500 shares every hour irrespective of market price. Such an algorithm is predictable and doesn’t take into account market prices and volumes. On the other hand, an algorithm could take into consideration both these parameters. One such algorithm is based on the VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price).

Volume weighted average price (VWAP) is a trading tool that is used by traders. These tools are used most frequently by short-term traders and in algorithm based trading programs. It is used as a benchmark to decide the price at which the security should be bought or sold. The idea is, if you buy a security at a price lower than the VWAP it is a good buy. Similarly if you sell the security at a price higher than the VWAP then it is a good sell.

Anatomy of Automated VWAP Strategy

Having 3 key elements a VWAP Strategy consists of Analysis of incoming orders . Intelligent volume distribution, Work orders intelligently.

Analysis of Incoming orders: Analysis before a trade which filters out any orders that can be traded more appropriately using other meads. Any trades which are illiquid or very large relative to average daily volume are diverted for manual attention.

Intelligent volume distribution: A key element of a successful automated strategy is an accurate estimate of the volume distribution. Over the desired time, the system generates a prediction of the stock’s volume pattern, full-day or partial-day. To match this projected volume pattern a trading distribution is created. More trading participation takes place during the periods of the day when volume is expected to be the heaviest, while minimizing the impact of trading during thin volume periods allowing the order to benefit from most liquid conditions.

Work orders intelligently: The last critical element of a successful automated strategy is the ability to obtain best execution on individual trades around the expected volume distribution. A set of rules are used here to balance passive trades earn spread against the need to stay on schedule for each time bin of the day. When markets are most liquid it taps into all available sources and trades most heavily.

If you can trade at better prices than those of volume-weighted average price (VWAP), this is often a point of evaluation for the ability of a trader. While being relatively straightforward, VWAP strategies are tough to implement.

Strategic plan step5writing your plan

Strategic plan step5writing your planStrategic Plan Step 5: Writing your plan

Every organisation should have a written plan for its future development, documenting the outcomes of the strategic planning process. Your plan should outline how the organisation plans to achieve its aims and objectives. It should demonstrate that there is effective control and management of the organisation by including a governance section with examples of controls.

Step 5: Writing A Strategic Plan

It is important that your written plan is ‘bought into by your full organisation by involving people at the earliest stages and is not merely a paper exercise. There are a range of organisations that can guide you in deciding what type of written plan is most relevant for your organisations needs, and can assist you in developing such plans.

Check out the Training and Support section of this site for a list of contacts who can help. Members of the Developing Governance Group can also provide practical assistance.

The extent and detail of your written plan will depend on the nature and size of your group or organisation, but the following are headings to guide you in structuring your strategic/business plan:

Contents of a strategic plan document

Executive summary

A summary of the plan; you may wish to make this summary something you can promote outside the organisation, to build support and keep stakeholders informed.

Provide a concise review of the current health of the organisation; summarise the strengths and weaknesses and their implications; make sure you cover key achievements in the previous period. Ensure you provide an overview of governance arrangements.

Future potential

Outline what the challenges are for the future (external opportunities, threats, other player potential, stakeholder needs etc.).

Strategic aims and priorities for change for the next three years

Cover the main areas of work the organisation needs to focus on for the next three years. Each objective should have key tasks and outcomes associated with it from which you can develop annual goals and teams and individuals can develop their work plans.

Cent account

Cent accountCent Account

Trade with Zero Minimum Deposit Requirements

As implied by the title, a Cent Account deals with (yes, you guessed it) cents. Deposit 5 dollars and your account will have a balance of 500 cents, deposit 10 dollars and they will be reflected as 1000 cents. There are no major differences in the structure of traditional accounts and cent accounts; the main element which distinguishes the two is that regardless of how much money you deposit, your balance will always appear in cents.

At ForexTime (FXTM) the Cent Account is available on Standard MT4 accounts and for those wishing to test it out first, we've developed a demo version of the account too.

Why Open a Cent Account?

What's the philosophy behind it? The Cent Account has been designed for small depositors and newcomers to the forex industry. It's most suitable for those who wish to trade with a lower deposit and grants access to the markets to all those who want to trade but cannot risk losing too much. Furthermore, it acts as a smooth shift from demo accounts to real accounts as it gives traders the chance to become familiar with using a forex account before trading with large sums of money.

Sharpen your focus for consistent trading and investing results

Sharpen your focus for consistent trading and investing resultsSharpen Your Focus for Consistent Trading and Investing Results

The goal for most traders is consistent profits, life-long income from speculating in markets. The key word in that sentence is "consistent." Anyone can have profitable trades here and there, but do they produce consistent income and profits from trading? I have a friend who day trades the S&P E-mini and has a very strong winning percentage, but the problem is that he doesn't make consistent income from trading. Sounds crazy, I know, but one loss for him tends to wipe out all the profits (I hope he doesn't read this article).

In the Extended Learning Track (XLT, our Live Trading Rooms), one of the "Odds Enhancers" Online Trading Academy focuses on for every short-term and long-term trading opportunity is the Profit Zone. Without a path for price to move after you enter a position on the chart, you have no trading opportunity. What I look for are supply and demand levels with very little activity between them. There are many supply and demand levels on a chart. Often, there is a very quality supply and demand level on a chart, but if they are too close to each other or there is too much trading activity between them, there is no trade. Typically, I look for opportunities on the chart that offer at least a 3:1 reward to risk to the first target. Often, I looking for more, but this is a safe minimum to make a trade acceptable to take.

DAX Futures Income Trade: May 13, 2014

At this point, you're probably wondering what any of this has to do with the title of the article. Let me explain through a trade I took that my class found in the Extended Learning Track (XLT). This was a trade in the DAX Futures. Notice the supply level on the chart shaded in yellow. The supply level is the origin of a strong decline in price and has with it some very key Odds Enhancers that make it a significant level where banks and institutions are likely selling, where supply greatly exceeds demand. The trade was to bet on a downside move, selling short at the supply level to a novice buyer for a potential move down in price. What made this trade work well are two specific odds enhancers. First was the quality supply level. Second, notice the rally that brought price up to the supply level where I sold short. It was a fast rally, people started buying in a hurry, and price shot up quickly. Notice specifically the two green candles prior to price reaching the supply level. There is no picture of demand in that rally. This means that when price reached the supply level where we sold short, price was likely to fall just as fast as it rallied because there was no significant demand to stop it from falling (no buy orders). Furthermore, you can really anticipate that this is likely to happen when looking at the entire blue shaded area. In this area, notice price moves quick and freely. This is because it's a price range with no significant buy or sell orders in it. When you have a supply or demand zone around areas like this, that means opportunity for price to turn and price to move. The more you can sharpen your focus on these two key odds enhancers, the better your trading results. Let's go over them so that you also can start seeing this picture of opportunity:

1. Quality Supply and Demand Levels: To identify market turning points and market moves in advance with a high degree of accuracy, you need to be able to know where institutions and banks are buying and selling in the markets. To accomplish this, you must be able to quantify real supply and demand in a market and most importantly, see this on a price chart. For this, a solid understanding of the Odds Enhancers is key.

2. A Clear Profit Zone: Just as it is important to identify strong supply and demand levels on a chart, it is equally important to be able to identify areas on the price chart where there is very little supply or demand. These are the areas where price will move quickly through the blue shaded area on the chart.

Everything you need to see is on the price charts, if you know what you're looking for. If you have been schooled in the theories of conventional technical analysis, you may be blinded by illusions of chart patterns that have you entering markets late, after market moves are well underway. Have no fear, there is a cure. Remove everything from your charts but price and price alone. Next, read some of my articles to begin to learn how to identify real demand and supply on price charts. At the end of the day, all that matters are two simple questions: Where is price going to turn, and where is price going to go? Sharpen your focus to the two odds enhancers that answer that question and your trading and investing life might just change for the better. My hope is that today's little nugget of information helps you achieve the consistency you're looking for.

Posted on: March 14th, 2011 by sian

Grame Scully is a fan of the Phoenix

I only trade the Phoenix strategy on Monday mornings, using a maximum risk of 1.5% of capital per trade and I limit myself to a maximum of 7 open trades. In February I achieved a 5.61% return on my trading account

My results have been small but consistent after a great result in Oct last year +15.9%; Nov -0.6%; Dec +5.0%; Jan +1.2%; Feb +5.6%; and Im averaging over 5% return per month, certainly better than anything the banks are offering!

My capital is at an all time equity high and continues to grow steadily and as it does, so too does the value of my trades. As I reinvest this capital over time, this one trading strategy, which takes me about 3-4 hrs per week to execute, review and manage, will become a great source of additional income.

Currency trading simulator

Currency trading simulatorAre you Sure? X

Project Description

Currency Trading Simulator, implemented as an ASP 2.0 website, using the Picasso Framework.

Implements Wilder, ADX, ATR, DI, etc, and uses them to make long/short calls based on the current tuning parameters.

Current default tuning parameters represent a well-known, conservative approach, that has worked fairly consistently over 25 years, but not for last 6mths. I get better results by decreasing stop loss ratio to zero, and increasing investment ratio to 1. Also experiment with shorter Exp. M.A window lengths like 2,3,4, and some of the logical switches.

Breaking news ice acquires ip rights to electronic trading strategies

Breaking news ice acquires ip rights to electronic trading strategiesBreaking News: ICE acquires IP rights to electronic trading strategies

The battle for supremacy among the giant global networks of exchanges and clearing houses continues as Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE:ICE), has today announced today that it has acquired intellectual property rights that relate to computerized trading strategies. The acquired intellectual property rights include U. S. Patent Numbers 7,177,833; 7,251,629; 8,498,923; 8,478,687; 8,660,940; 8,732,048; 8,725,621 and various related pending U. S. Patent Applications. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Merger and acquisition activity has dominated the headlines among many firms recently from exchanges to retail FX brokerages, however this move by ICE is extremely interesting as it pertains to strategies which are owned by their originators, rather than the otherwise commonplace acquisition of other firms, and therefore indicates that ICE is investing in automated trading strategies which are the subject of much regulatory disdain across certain jurisdictions. By purchasing the rights to these strategies, ICE is further demonstrating that North America continues to remain home to the most advanced algorithmic trading operations.

“We believe these intellectual property rights cover important aspects of transacting in today’s markets,” said Intercontinental Exchange Chief Strategy Officer David Goone. “ICE acquired these patents with the goal of preventing third parties from using these intellectual property rights against our customers. ICE intends to make these patents available broadly for license to customers that provide beneficial liquidity in ICE’s and NYSE’s markets.”

The acquired intellectual property rights include patent claims covering the use of an automated trading system to make price and trading decisions based on market price information. The intellectual property rights cover multiple asset classes traded electronically on exchanges, including futures, options and cash equities.

Online trading academy core strategy

Online trading academy core strategyRe: Online Trading Academy - OTA - Review of the Strategy and Education

I thought I would weigh in on the OTA discussion because I am a student/customer of theirs, including some XLTs.

IMHO, any OTA student who fails does so for one or more of three reasons:

1. He or she does not have a solid trading plan with specifics (or they don't follow their plan--see #2). As an example, I ran spoke with a fellow student whom I have known for over a year and asked him about his plan. He still did not have a trading plan in place!

2. He or she has not developed the discipline to control impulsiveness.

3. They are not cut out for it--you have to be willing to pull the trigger. (The person should have known that beforehand, but even if trading is not a comfortable thing to do, mastering the first two will help overcome this obstacle, I think)

Over the last three years, I can say that I suffered from #1, and #2.-- I had a trading plan that I did not regularly review or particularly follow, it was too complex, etc, etc. I also had a problem waiting for the trade to come to me. To make a long story short, I was brutally honest with myself, stopped trading for several months, and simplified a whole bunch of things, including reducing the number of OTA instructors I follow. Although OTA has a core strategy, instructors have their nuances and the sheer wealth of information was counter-productive to my development. My fav instructors are: Evans, Krebs, Vollmering, Seiden. From Wang I took a specific chart parameter that resonated with me, and finally from Valasquez I took his approach to the larger time frame. etc. Don't get me wrong--they are all good but you must go with the ones whose approach feels right to you.

By focusing on only those instructors AND spending the time in front of the charts, and simplifying my plan--I now have a strategy the works for me. (approx 4 setups/week) I plan to leave my day job by September 2014 and be doing this full time.

To paraphrase one of the OTA instructors I follow: When your set-up is there you have to take the trade!

Thanks for letting me share. i hope this info helps someone.

PS: I trade only these markets now: 6a, 6b, 6j, 6e, nq (I will add more later)

How to earn atax-free income from forex trading and claim all your expenses from the uk tax authori

How to earn atax-free income from forex trading and claim all your expenses from the uk tax authoriHow To Earn A Tax-Free Income From Forex Trading AND Claim All Your Expenses From The UK Tax Authorities

WARNING: This article might be boring!

This article is aimed at UK Foreign Exchange traders who want to 1) know how to minimize their tax liabilities from forex trading, and/or 2) to know how to claim back from the UK tax authorities all the expenses incurred in their trading activities - legally.

Before I go on, I must stress that this is general UK tax information and must not be construed as professional tax advice. You should consult your personal accountant or tax consultant who can advise you personally having taking into account all your own particular circumstances. This information is given in good faith and is relevant under existing UK tax legislation.

As many UK traders know, UK income tax is normally payable on trading profits made from the foreign exchange market after relevant deduction of trading losses and expenses and any applicable personal allowances. Expenses allowable must be wholly and exclusively incurred as part of your trading activities and will include things like allowances for your trading screens and computers, IT maintenance, legal costs, telephone and broadband connection costs, FT, The Economist and other relevant subscriptions and periodicals, etc.

However, currently under UK tax law any trading gains made from the foreign exchange markets through UK spread-betting activities are tax-free. What is more, this income does not even have to be declared to the tax authorities, just like your winnings from betting on the horses at your local Bookmaker. The unfortunate thing about spread-betting is that forex trading losses (and it’s a fact that the vast majority of spread-betters are losers!) are not deductible from tax. The double-whammy of spread-betting is that expenses incurred as a result of spread-bet trading activities are not usually deductible either.

So how does one take advantage of these current rules?

The simple answer is to trade using both direct forex trading and spread-bet trading! The cheeky but legal solution is to ensure that all personal tax allowances and associated expenses of forex trading are covered by net profits made using direct forex market trading activities so that the net tax liability is very low, or even zero. Your accountant will probably advise that not 100% of expenses would be allowable since not all expenses have been incurred as part of direct forex trading activities, so bear this in mind. Hopefully most of your mega forex gains made with the Lindencourt FX System will be made through your spread-betting account and will therefore be completely tax-free.

So you can have your cake and eat it!

Final Word

If you take a deposit bonus, you are more likely to have troubles withdrawing. The problem with withdrawing doesnt necessarily indicate there is anything wrong with the broker, rather the terms and conditions of the bonus were likely misunderstood. To avoid complications, avoid deposit bonuses. While these are award winning regulated brokers, always do your own research before depositing by reading comments on social media or monitoring broker discussion forums. When doing this take comments from novice traders with a grain of salt; many traders lose money due to lack of strategy, discipline or market understanding, but they often blame their losses on the broker.
