Forex clock sessionsForex Clock Sessions

FOREX clock is an essential tool every FOREX trader must use in order to observe forex sessions properly. If your strategy is not tied to a particular time interval, and lets you enter the market at different times, you need to have a FOREX clock.

FOREX market is the most active when FOREX sessions overlap. For instance, American and European FOREX sessions overlap between 12:00pm 4:00pm GMT. If you trade in the time interval, you must be cautious, since the strongest market movements often happen during this time.

Opposite is also true. If you expect a strong trend to begin, dont expect this to happen by the end of American session when Asia hasnt started yet.

To know exactly where I am trading, I use a free FOREX clock that shows the current GMT time, FOREX sessions, session overlaps, and the point where I am trading on the FOREX session timeline.

This free FOREX clock is very simple, and strait-forward. You can download it now by clicking on the Download button below this post.

One of my successful strategies is based on FOREX clock. I choose the less active time intervals called inter-session flats, and trade in channels of around 25 pips in the direction of the current trend. When sessions start to overlap, and market starts to move towards the current trend, I just leave my position open with a trailing take profit order.

Every day, this simple strategy lets you collect 2 3 times by around 20 pips plus 50 100 pips one time by staying open in the direction of the current trend.

Home Stock Market Traders Clock and Forex Sessions

All traders are well aware that the Forex market is open 24 hours 5 days a week. And every once wondered: At what time to trade better, and when to refrain from any trades? On this and on how to determine their relative time UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) or GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), and we will talk in this post.

Technically trading week starts on a Sunday morning in Tel Aviv (Israel), but due to the small volume of trading this session ignore. But the real beginning is considered the beginning of trading in Wellington (New Zealand). But here, a very small business marketplace, and so the market comes to life only when the bidding starts in Tokyo (Japan) and Sydney (Australia). Is then connected the largest trading center in London (England) and at this time, as a rule, the market is much more active. Peak trading activity occurs when the London session is added and New York (the second largest trading volumes Trading Centre).

So during the day decided to allocate 4 main trading sessions:

Australia and Oceania (Sydney, Wellington) – GMT 22:00-06:00

Asian session (Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong) – GMT 00:00-09:00

European Session (London, Zurich, Paris, Frankfurt) – GMT 07:00-16:00

American session (New York, Chicago, Toronto) – GMT 13:30-20:00

Where and how much to UTC begins or that trading session clearly seen in these stock clock:

These clocks showing real time global foreign exchange market and help to accurately see the beginning and end of sessions. Hour hand stock clock unlike ordinary clock only does 1 revolution per day (one rotation every 24 hours), and the minute and second hands to make one rotation in 60 minutes and 60 seconds, respectively, as in ordinary clock.

The weekend clock runs in demo mode. Simple principle of stock clock you can see in the picture below:

Scale structure of stock clock:

In addition, the stock clock will help determine the time offset your broker about the time in UTC or GMT, which may be necessary for setting the properties in some experts advisors. For example, on the clock of your broker is now 15:32, and 13:32 on the stock clock. In this case, the time of your broker - UTC +2 (GMT +2).

In fact UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) and GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) show the same time. I now I will not write the history of formation of these systems timing. Except to say that they vary a lot for 1 second view of the fact that time is GMT unstable within one second per year, and the system UTC younger than GMT.

So, the system UTC accepted as a more convenient clock stock and Forex market time is calculated from this time.

Learn the basics and explore potential new opportunities on how to trade options

The options market provides a wide array of choices for the trader. Like many derivatives, options also give you plenty of leverage, allowing you to speculate with less capital. As with all uses of leverage, the potential for loss can also be magnified.

Get Started

Understanding the Basics

A long option is a contract that gives the buyer the right to buy or sell the underlying security or commodity at a specific date and price. There is no obligation to buy or sell in the contract, but simply the right to “exercise” the contract, if the buyer decides to do so. An option that gives you the right to buy is called a “call,” whereas a contract that gives you the right to sell is called a "put." Conversely, a short option is a contract that obligates the seller to either buy or sell the underlying security at a specific price, through a specific date. When the buyer of a long option exercises the contract, the seller of a short option is "assigned", and is obligated to act.

To make this clearer, lets use a real world analogy… Lets say youre shopping for an antique grandfather clock and find the perfect one at the right price: $3,000. But you wont have the cash for another three months. You talk to the owner and he agrees to sell it at that price in three months with a specific expiration date, but you have to pay $100 for him to agree to the contract. After three months, you have the money and buy the clock at that price.

But maybe its discovered that the clock was owned by Theodore Roosevelt, which makes it worth $10,000. You have the right to exercise your option and buy it for $3,000, netting you a profit of $6,900 (minus transaction costs). On the other hand, lets say its discovered thats its not an antique at all, but a knock-off worth only $500. Youre under no obligation to exercise your option and buy it at $3,000, so you can opt not to buy it at all and simply let the contract expire. Although youre still out the $100, at least youre not stuck with a clock worth a fraction of what you paid for it. From the option seller's perspective, in the first scenario he gets the $100, but is later forced to sell the clock at less than true market value. In the second scenario, he keeps the clock, and the $100 you paid in premium.

If you understand this concept as it applies to securities and commodities, you can see how advantageous it might be to trade options. For a relatively small amount of capital, you can enter into options contracts that give you the right to buy or sell investments at a set price at a future date, no matter what the price of the underlying security is today.

1 Hour Chart, Profitable and Simple Trading Method

Hello everyone this will be my first thread that involves a using a system that is methodical and fairly easy to understand so go easy on me please lol. i have gathered tools and indicators that i have found useful from other people and combined it into my own trading style. let me know what you think about it and any sucess stories i would appreciate it

Chart setup is as follows:

1 hour chart with candlesticks

Indicators:

13 EMA - white, faster moving markets sometimes i change to 8 also it isnt on my screen shot but i do use it, sorry about that

200 EMA Rasta color Up= Green, Consolidating= Yellow, Down=Red

MBT Pivot and MBT mid Pivots

CI arrows_v1.1 Also at 20 and the level where you get alert arrows are at 100 and -100, there is also and e mail alert you can take advantage of as well

Bolinger bands at 30

Indidcator Windows:

Stochastic at 14, 3, 3

MACD Taditional stock settings 12, 26, 9

CCI at 20, not 14 which is the stock setting

The first CCI is a line histogram for a nice visual of the slope of the the line that generally coincides with the stochastics

Rules are: There are no rules just guidelines and common sense, but here are a few.

Use the 200 EMA to determine genaral trend and wait for a signal from the cci that follows the trend

if your going to counter trend trade make sure price is very far from the 200 and be cautious cause the trend is you friend, but generally i dont reccomend it.

i will add srceen shots and all the idicators i use so its easier to visualize and understand. i have tried to simplify what i look at as much as possible so there is less emotional thinking and more technical thinking.

I will be uplading screen shot of yesterdays AUD/USD trade that i took that is a good example and the screen shot will also show more than just one trade. i have seen way too many threads where people just show one trade. So remeber as of right now we are in a down trend in the AUD/USD so the shorts are more profitable than the longs. Also the 1 hour charts seems to give me more free time and less time staring at the charts cause it can get overwhelming at times and thats when you start to miss the important clues of the bigger picture.

Side Note if price is braiding inside the 34s is probably consolidating

And, my roll over is at 2:00 o'clock Pacific Standard time, 5:00 o'clock EST thats where my pivots change

CCI arrows shows and extremely profitable Short entry last night at about 7 o'clock PST with a very safe entry and a minimal to no draw down which doesnt always happen but it is sweet when there is a minimal draw down.

Thanks for listening and i would appreciate feed back. this system works on all currencies but you may have to look around for ones or put them on the ones you normally trade. Good luck! I really like this and hope it can help people that are new or searching for something somewhat idiot proof cause believe me we have all been there especially me. Cheers

Disclaimer

Also please be aware i am just trying to help and trading involves risk and you can hold no one other than your self accountable for you sucess or failure. only you can decide when to trade and when not to. i am a firm believer that every humans destiny is mostly based on his or her own decisions and actions. And i can not be held accountable for something you decide to do or not do LOL. Thanks For your time

Online stock trading forum

Online stock trading forumOnline Stock Trading Forum

Individuals interested in communicating with other individuals who are active stock market traders will begin to search the internet for an online stock trading forum. There are many throughout the internet, but there are only a few that contain active traders who have a full understanding of how the stock market operates. This is important to understand because even in the internet world of the stock market there are unscrupulous predators that are on the lookout for the novice investor to prey upon.

Individuals who have an active interest and a like interest will want to join in the conversation with other like minds to discuss the day or the week's activities. This is also a way for individuals to learn valid information at the same time they are learning information. The novice stock investor will usually gravitate to any one of a number of these online stock trading forums to gain the knowledge of which are better stocks to invest with and which stocks are more mediocre. Which stocks pay a dividend on the quarterly, half-year, or annual closing, which is valuable information for the new investor.

Time spent gathering information on the many company common stocks traded daily is a wealth of information for any investor. The ability to join into a forum and communicate with others to learn about the various stocks will help the individual decide which stocks to invest and which stock to stay away. Research the forum currently in because there are a number of forums that only cover certain stocks exchanges rather than covering the broad range of stocks.

All common stock traded on through the stock exchange is available for public consumption around the clock and it can become mesmerizing to watch as the markets trade around the world offering a complete picture to what activity any particular stock is experiencing. However, most individuals have other issues to tend to during the day so it is a nice feature to be able to access information around the clock.

An individual opening an online stock trading initiative will give the individual up to the minute information as to what is currently happing on the trading floor. A word of caution though because monitoring an individual's stock via the internet on a daily basis is more than some can handle. Sound advice is for the individual to monitor the stock once a week because with all the software tools on the market today the history is easily retrievable.

Track the forex trading hours open and close times around the globe in a market that rarely sleeps…

Each timezone has its own trading hours, interlinking with neighbours as they drive liquidity cycles

The forex market opens each week during the Asian time zone, beginning with Auckland, New Zealand when the banking and financial sector starts up around 8 AM (21:00 hours GMT or thereabouts).

Thereafter begins a rolling progression of forex market opening times and closes around the globe.

Next to start is the eastern seaboard of Australia comprising the major financial centres of Melbourne and Sydney. The Australian session is only just getting under way when Tokyo opens 2 hours later, followed by Singapore an hour after that.

This overlapping of market sessions often gives rise to instability and volatility. It can provide great opportunities for trading, and at the same time expose beginning forex traders to great risk.

The new forex trader is well advised to study these times as they relate to their personal trading sessions and adjust their approach accordingly.

A further complication relates to the issue of daylight saving and other seasonal adjustments. Depending on where you live, and therefore whether or not local authorities adjust for daylight saving etc, market open and close times can change by one hour up to 4 times a year. Keep an eye on these seasonal clock adjustments, not just for your own time zone but for the major financial centres such as London and New York.

Above is a representation of the four major global time zones in forex, with open time countdowns updating in real time.

Note especially how the sessions overlap, beginning with the Australasian open in Sydney, progressing through Tokyo, then to London and on to New York.

There are also smaller but quite significant open and close events centred around Central/Eastern European nations such as Russia, and later in the day as Frankfurt opens an hour before London.

The Frankfurt open is especially interesting since it can often push price in one direction only to see a complete reversal when London begins trading!

These overlapping zones represent areas of likely volatility which I think of as forex tidal wash areas. If you have ever stood at the mouth of a river as it enters the ocean when the tide is changing you will have observed the turbulence and the washing of one stream of energy into, through and across the other.

In the area where I grew up these tidal washes attract sharks . they like to hunt in the camouflage of the swirling turmoil which also helps to confuse their prey. Does this remind you of times you have entered the market when volatility suddenly increased? I think you can see the connection; it is a time to exercise great caution .

Some specific strategies that to one degree or another cater to these forex sessions follow. Please note these are not recommendations but suggestions only:

Asian Tidal Wash after quiet start in Australia: Tokyo/Singapore

The Bladerunner is an especially handy strategy for these times, and in fact can be traded most of the day during Asia. Also consider any of the other free forex strategies featured on our Forex Strategies page, after having done sufficient testing and optimisation of course (the same strategies can also be considered for the following two forex tidal wash sessions).

European tidal wash after Asia ends: Frankfurt/London

Again, the Bladerunner is useful in this session, although I have found it not to be quite as reliable as when used in Asia. This may be due to me mostly restricting my trading to the Asian session and consequently having less experience of the European session.

The New York Open / London Close tidal wash

This is a period that lends itself well to the strategies covered In Vic Nobles Recurring Forex Patterns course, and Shirley Hudsons London Close Strategy .

And of course, any of Chris Loris price action based approaches can be adapted to these sessions.

A couple of resources that you may find helpful in keeping in tune with the various timeframes as they change during the year due to daylight savings etc. are the following:

worldtimezone/markets24.php. WorldTime zone Daylight Savings Markets Clock

anuko. Anuko World Clock is a download for Windows that replaces the regular system clock with several time zones of your choosing. Includes a template for World Clock for a Forex Trader, among others.

The concept of forex market trading through different time zones and levels of volatility is a good place to introduce one safeguard a trader can use for these times if they are unable to watch to their open trades: a VPS service.

Trade Around the Clock

The forex market is a near-seamless 24-hour market. The trading desk opens on Sundays between 5:00 PM ET and 5:15 PM ET. The trading desk closes on Fridays at 4:55 PM ET. Please note that orders placed prior may be filled until 5:00 p. m. ET and that traders placing trades between 4:55 p. m. and 5:00 p. m. may be unable to cancel orders pending execution. With the ability to trade around the clock, currency traders have the advantage of customizing their own trading schedule; they can usually get in or out of the market at any time without waiting for an opening bell or encountering a market gap. While trading stocks after usual market hours is possible, very often that possibility is negated by a lack of order flow or a drastic widening of the bid-ask spread.

Forex Market Information Easily Accessible

Information about stocks is abundant, but so are the stocks. Finding a trade opportunity in the equities markets may mean sifting through data on thousands of stocks, while the forex trader has only six major currencies to research. Additionally, the vital information that moves equity markets, such as revenues and profits, which can be convoluted and sometimes subject to fraud, deception and insider trading. In contrast, virtually all of the news that bears on the forex market is publicly disseminated reports from governments or research institutions, and is transparent.

We feel that the knowledge you've gained in analyzing stocks can easily be transferred to the forex market. Many of the economic indicators familiar to equity traders, such as payroll data and interest rates, affect the currency markets. And many technical traders have found the forex market to be particularly attractive, since currencies respond well to many of the common technical indicators, such as MACD, RSI, and Candlestick charting.

Forex Trading is a High Risk Investment

Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss in excess of your deposit and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.

Forex product reviewsStorm Russels Profit In 60 Seconds Trade Comparisons For Friday 31-Jan-2014

This article documents what I am alleging to be fraudulent and illegal activity by the person who calls himself Storm Russel and who operates the website ProfitIn60Seconds .

How the scam works . Although Mr. Russel offers the software as a free 30-day trial, it is required that you setup an account at a broker that he specifies and make an initial deposit with that broker. Mr. Russel perpetrates the fraud by collecting affiliate and/or Introducing Broker (IB) commissions from these binary optons brokers. On a daily basis, Mr. Russel produces what he calls a video diary of what he claims are the trades he has taken for that day by using the software. The videos look very convincing — however, they are a complete fabrication and you will not achieve the type of results that Mr. Russel fraudulently claims to achieve.

The following is the list of Binary Options brokers (that I am aware of) that are either willing or unwitting accomplices to Mr. Russel:

If you believe you have been a victim of Mr. Russels Profit In 60 Seconds scam, you should file a complaint with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) at ic3.gov/complaint/ .

Trade Rush (traderush )

The following important points should be noted about this comparison:

The "video diary" for these trades as published by Mr. Russel may be found on the Profit In 60 Seconds website as well as the YouTube link youtube/watch? v=jpiT8wC_MJk

Although Mr. Russel claims to achieve 86% accuracy on his trades, the actual results when using the software, as attested to by many people who have posted their results on various web forums, and as I have confirmed, are closer to 50%-55%. ALL of Mr. Russels videos are fraudulently produced.

NONE of the 20 alerts Mr. Russel claims to have received and traded on this day actually occured in the software itself. [There was one actual alert, for trade number 17, that was alerted at about the same time, that could be construed as a valid trade although the probability was incorrect (see comments section)].

The clock you see in the header of the web page is the GMT time as shown on the RedwoodOptions web page. I have included this clock in my screen captures (the RIGHT-hand column) for accurate comparison along with an additional GMT clock that is on my desktop to show that the times are the same.

If you believe you have been a victim of Mr. Russel's Profit In 60 Seconds scam, you should file a complaint with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) at ic3.gov/complaint/ .

Guaranteed vwap(volume weighted average price)orders

Guaranteed vwap(volume weighted average price)ordersGuaranteed VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price) Orders

To assist customers in reducing execution risk, IB supports guaranteed VWAPs for large cap stocks. The VWAP for a stock is calculated by adding the dollars traded for every transaction in that stock ("price" x "number of shares traded") and dividing the total shares traded.

Best-efforts VWAP is offered at IB's standard stock rate. See the fees page for Guaranteed VWAP rates.

A VWAP is computed from a beginning cut-off time to an ending cut-off time, and is calculated by volume weighting all transactions during this time period. VWAP prices are computed by Bloomberg, displayed after market close, and are guaranteed to be executed.

By default, beginning cut-off times are every minute from market open to market close. TWS will automatically submit your VWAP order for the next minute cut-off unless you elect a different beginning cut-off time by clicking the Time in Force field and using the clock feature to select a new time. You can also modify the ending cut-off time of the calculation (which is the close of the market by default) by using the clock feature in the Exp. Time field.

NOTE: If you elect to specify a start and end time, TWS confirms the validity of the order by checking that the prior trading day's trading volume for the specified time period is equal to or greater than that same day's volume for the last thirty minutes of trading. If it is less, TWS will add subsequent 30-minute interval trading volume amounts to the volume of the insufficient time period until the minimum valid volume is achieved. The user receives a message specifying the minimum acceptable end time to make the order valid. Here's a simple illustration that uses clean half hour increments. TWS also calculates for times that fall in between.

Yesterday's Trading Volume:

10:00- 10:30 = 200

10:30 - 11:00 = 100

11:00 - 11:30 = 400

11:30 - 12:00 = 100

12:00 - 12:30 = 100

12:30 - 1:00 = 200

1:00 - 1:30 = 300

1:30 - 2:00 = 300

Last 30 minutes of trading = 1600

You enter a start and end time of 10:00 - 1:00. Since the trading volume for that time period yesterday was 1100 and the volume for the last 30 minutes was 1600, the order is not accepted. TWS adds the 1:00 - 1:30 volume to get 1400, then the 1:30 - 2:00 volume to get 1700, which is sufficient to make the order valid. You will receive a message saying "The time period for this order is too short. For this start time, use at least 2:00 as the end time."

VWAP orders will be accepted up until 30 minutes before the market close. Any VWAP order accepted after that time and up until one minute before the open will be applied to the market open cut-off.

Please note that once your VWAP order is accepted you cannot cancel your order. There are important differences between VWAP transactions and ordinary trades. Please click here for more information and to learn about applicable limitations.

Market Characteristics

The FOREX market is unique in the investing world. First, it seldom closes. It's ready for business 24 hours a day during the week. However, there is no single universal exchange for any specific currency pairs. In most cases, individuals, banks and corporations having FOREX brokers can trade any currency pairs around the clock.
