My daily trading routine

My daily trading routineMy Daily Trading Routine

One of the best parts of trading is to be able to work according to your own schedule. Frankly, it’s not even work when you love what you do. Yet a “typical” trading day becomes almost boring over time. I say this because your strategy and rules become so ingrained in your subconscious that you simply act the same way in each situation according to your plan.

“Expect the unexpected, and whenever possible be the unexpected”

No matter what the market throws at you, you must always be prepared. The market throws curve balls at you every day and you must be ready for them. Come along with me as I take you through my typical trading day.

(All times are in CST – Chicago Time!)

The trading week begins on Sunday

The trading week really begins on Sunday night. No I’m not trading the Globex market open; I’m doing a bit of prep work for the week ahead. Sunday night is a great time to review the news announcements for the week, read through any weekly forecasts, and go through watch lists.

Most of you know that I trade both the Euro open and the NYSE open using the E-mini SP and the Eurodollar Futures, this means that I must wake up at 2:00 AM. I have adopted a bi-phase sleep schedule to do so. This means that I sleep for 4.5 hours, wake-up, trade the Euro open, then go back to sleep for another 1.5 – 3.0 hours before waking up again to trade the NYSE open and go about my day.

There is a lot to be said about sleep cycles. more than I care to delve into right now, but from my research (an actual experience) I’ve found that waking up on a 90-min increment such as 4.5, 6, or 7.5 hours results in the most refreshing and satisfying sleep because you are waking up at a completion of a full cycle.

My Daily Trading Schedule

2:00 AM Begin trading at the Euro Open

On a typical trading day. The first thing I do when I wake up (after grabbing some juice and toast) is to see what Germany did in the hour leading up to the European open. Typically the European session will do the opposite of what Germany did. I’ve found this holds true on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings (the meat of the week). Monday and Friday are typically less participation days.

Since it is slow and quiet during the wee hours of the morning I will throw on an audio book or some podcasts to listen to. I find that I am the most productive during this time so I will occasionally work on a blog post or other project if I am waiting for a level to set up it is especially slow (such as right now!)

(I begin Euro open trading on Tuesday morning as Monday is usually uneventful and slow).

5:15 AM Back to sleep for 90-mins

If the Euro session is really slow and I haven’t had any trades by 3:30 I will go back to sleep at 3:45. I try and get to sleep by these two times because it allows me to complete a full one or two sleep cycles by the time I wake up next for NYSE open trading

6:45 AM NYSE open trading begins

I call this NYSE open even though the cash session doesn’t open until 8:30. This starts the main part of my day. I usually feel refreshed and away both times I wake up. After taking my resting heart rate I throw on some clothes, grab a yogurt and some orange juice and hit the office. (Oh yeah, forgot to mention that my office is down the hall from my sleeping quarters, a nice feature to say the least).

I review what has happened since the Euro open and take a quick glance at Reuter’s news headlines. Then I pull up my daily notes and fill out the day’s numbers. I read over my trading rules (again to engrain them into my subconscious), by now this has just become habit, and the trading beings, (or resumes).

(I don’t trade the ES during the first 30-mins because it is erratic as market orders hit the tape).

Definition: A bull market can be best described as a period when stocks, indexes, and commodities are all going up. These uptrending markets can last anywhere from 6 months to 4 years. A bull market is also a sign that the economy is doing well. Most of the money trading stocks is made at the beginning of this cycle, and it would be wise to recognize the the difference. By using technical analysis and analyzing stock charts you can identify the beginning, and end of a bull market cycle. In the charts below you will learn how technical analysis is applied to identify a bull market. Some of these methods include reading stock charts using technical analysis.

How To Recognize A Bull Market

Buy stocks only in a bull market. Before buying breakouts……YOU MUST KNOW what stage the market is in. The markets as a whole must be in a bullish phase. The bull market runs in cycles, and depending on what stage it is in, you will implement the Breakout Strategy.

When the market is Flat or in a Downtrend, you will trade the range or short the breakdown. Shorting Stocks will be discussed later in the Advanced section of this tutorial.

A Bull Market Is Green Uptrend Line

A Bull Market In The Nasdaq Index

Below is another example of of market stages. Included in the charts below is the real estate financial crisis. On Jan 2008 the market went from flat to bearish, and my whole portfolio started shorting stocks. I’ve never made so much money in my whole life. If you’ll notice bear markets go down faster that bull markets because of the element of panic. If you simple track the indexes and update your charts. You will be prepared to take advantage and go with the trend. No guessing, no gut feelings, just due dilligence, and check your index charts once a week. Nothing complicated about that. However, most traders fail to look at he market indexes.

Forex growth bot546

Forex growth bot546Forex Growth Bot 546

Forex Growth Bot is a new EA that I particularly like. The strategy is based on an algorithm calculating the volatility of the pair in two periods (a fast and a small one).

Forex Growth Bot trades the EURUSD on the 15M timeframe. The user can set the initial lot size (by default 0.05 lots). It also uses a safe compounding strategy that automatically increases the lot size, based on the gains.

One of the most interesting things is the trailing procedure that is implemented in the EA. This trailing procedure let the EA ride the trend very nicely. The strategy is called Wave Stops. It is little complicated to explain. It works by trailing the profits using Elliott Wave theory. It trails by checking the equity levels and its retracements.

You can go more in depth about the wave stops trailing strategy by reading the article on StockCommodities 09/09 magazine written by the author of the EA, Eugune Labunsky.

You can read the article here:

Perfomances are really good and the draw down is very low. It it trading live only since 3 months now but its a real live account and verified through the broker and myfxbook.

You can see it live trading by following the:

Download and install the Meta Trader platform from the ThinkForex broker: Click Here

Once you installed, run it and click File -> Login

Enter username: 1151607 and password: eug321

Then choose Server: ThinkForex-Live and click Login.

or from the myfxbook account here:

Actually the perfomance is +400% gain after two months of trading. Most of the gain has been made with the first trades but it has made more than 2300 pips only on EURUSD with an average gain of more than 100 pips per gain (the average loss is around 25 pips). The percent of profitable trades is 55%. So the gain/loss ratio (taking into account the % of profitable trade and the amount of average gain/average loss) is 4.88. The Profit factor of the live account is an incredible 8.49 but this is mainly due by the gain of the initial trades.

My backtests using tick by tick data, confirm the very good performances. Ill publish them soon in a dedicated page.

I had the chance to chat with the developers and they are real automatic traders very skilled and with a lot of knowledge. Ive been impressed by them and I assure that is not something that happens often So much that well try to do something together in the future.

They are not real upsells as you can decide to buy them whenever you want directly from the members section.

Personally I suggest you to buy the Basic Edition + the Advanced if you want to have full access to all the options OR the Power Source if you also want to have some code to customize the EA. The core of the strategy is in the DLL but the code can tweak it like Ive done.

Canadian man charged in first federal securities fraud prosecution involving‘layering’scheme targe

Canadian man charged in first federal securities fraud prosecution involving‘layering’scheme targeCanadian Man Charged in First Federal Securities Fraud Prosecution Involving ‘Layering’

WASHINGTON—A Canadian man was arrested today for allegedly orchestrating a large-scale, international stock market manipulation scheme in the first federal prosecution of securities fraud involving a high-frequency trading strategy known as “layering,” U. S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman for the District of New Jersey announced.

Aleksandr Milrud, 50, of Ontario, Canada, and Aventura, Florida, is charged by complaint with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of wire fraud. FBI agents arrested Milrud at his residence in Aventura this morning. He is scheduled to appear this afternoon before U. S. Magistrate Judge John J. OSullivan in federal court in Miami.

“As our complaint shows, illegally manipulating markets to cause even small price changes can yield large gains when done on a massive scale,” U. S. Attorney Fishman said. “The defendant and his far-flung network of conspirators operated an international scheme in which they generated millions of dollars in illicit profits for themselves with artificial trade orders executed at high speeds.”

“As alleged in the complaint, Mildrud was the engineer behind a sophisticated, international, groundbreaking market manipulation scheme that utilized an illicit, high-speed trading strategy to execute trades,” said Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford of the FBI in Newark, New Jersey. “The losses to investors due to this innovative fraud could be in the millions. The FBI will continue to identify and investigate frauds such as this one, in order to ensure a level playing field for all investors.”

According to the complaint unsealed today:

Milrud allegedly orchestrated an extensive and sophisticated international layering scheme that, according to him, yielded millions of dollars in illicit profits. Layering, also known as “spoofing,” is a form of manipulative, high-speed stock trading in which a trader places non-bona fide orders to buy or sell securities and then quickly cancels them before they are executed. The purpose of these non-bona fide orders is to artificially move the price of security up (in the case of non-bona fide buy orders) or down (in the case of non-bona fide sell orders) and to induce other market participants to buy or sell a security at a price not representative of actual supply or demand. While the non-bona fide orders are pending, the trader simultaneously executes trades in an attempt to profit from the artificial movement of the share price that the trader has created. Milruds layering scheme targeted U. S. securities markets and involved high-speed trading through numerous brokerage accounts and foreign traders that Milrud recruited and managed in China and Korea.

In January 2013, Milrud solicited the assistance of an individual who owned an off-shore broker-dealer (the Foreign-BD) but who, unbeknownst to Milrud, was a cooperating witness (CW) with law enforcement. Milrud sought to open a trading account at the Foreign-BD for use in his layering scheme. Over the course of several consensually recorded calls and meetings between the CW, Milrud and others, Milrud explained his illegal trading strategies in detail. Milrud said he controlled approximately 60 percent of all China-based traders engaged in layering, that his traders used various trading accounts that were not tied to Milrud in any manner and that the layering scheme generated millions of dollars in illicit profits. Milrud explained that to enable his traders to place and cancel many orders quickly, he worked with a software company on programming “hotkeys” shortcuts for placing and cancelling multiple orders quickly with few keystrokes. Milrud also explained his efforts to avoid detection by law enforcement and regulators, including not discussing business on the phone, communicating through third party liaisons, and using multiple trading and clearing firms and accounts to execute a single securities transaction, a practice he described as “shredding.”

On Aug. 27, 2014, Milrud met the CW at the offices of the Foreign-BD. The meeting was video and audio recorded by law enforcement. Milrud explained his layering scheme in more detail. Milrud stated that overseas stock traders who he controlled simultaneously utilized at least two trading accounts to execute the layering scheme; one account was used to conduct the manipulative layering trading (the Layering Account), which Milrud referred to as the “dirty work,” and another “clean” account (the Profit Account) was used to buy or sell the manipulated stock at a profit during the small window of time in which the stock price had been artificially moved by the “dirty” activity in the Layering Account. According to Milrud, his foreign traders logged into these accounts from different computers and different Internet protocol (IP) addresses so that it would not appear as if the same individual was trading through the two accounts and to evade automated fraud detection systems established by the trading platforms. After explaining his manipulative trading strategy, Milrud said, “Regular trading. If I didnt tell you what I just told you, it would seem like regular trading you would not know nothing of what I do.” The CW replied, “Will look just like regular buying and selling?” Milrud responded, “Exactly. One hundred percent kosher. If I didnt tell you everything behind it, you have no way of [knowing].”

During the Aug. 27, 2014, meeting, Milrud agreed to log into his trading platform using the CWs computer to show the CW his traders activity in real time. The CW had been provided by law enforcement with a laptop computer (the FBI Computer), which included software that recorded all activity and keystrokes on the computer. Milrud logged into and remotely accessed his trading system using the FBI Computer. According to Milrud, his overseas traders were controlling the orders and trades that he and the CW were observing on the FBI Computer. The CW then observed multiple real time trades in a number of different securities in both the Layering and Profit Accounts, and orders being placed and cancelled, while Milrud narrated.

According to Milruds statements to the CW during a consensually recorded call on Dec. 15, 2014, the scheme could generate anywhere from $1 million to $50 million per month and had yielded approximately $600,000 in a single day in recent weeks. The investigation is ongoing and law enforcement continues to investigate the brokerage accounts, trader identification numbers that Milrud used to carry out the scheme and the full scope of the illicit profits.

The conspiracy count with which Milrud is charged carries a statutory maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or twice the gain or loss from the offense. The wire fraud count carries a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or twice the gain or loss from the offense.

U. S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford in Newark, for the investigation leading to todays arrest and complaint. He also thanked the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commissions Market Abuse Unit, under the direction of Daniel M. Hawke, for its role in the case.

The government is represented by Chief Gurbir S. Grewal and Assistant U. S. Attorney Nicholas P. Grippo of the U. S. Attorneys Office Economic Crimes Unit .

The charges and allegations contained in the complaint are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Market Strategy

For details of my trading philosophy, see My Strategy .

Conclusions for an index are the overall strategy relating to that market. This does not mean that every sector of the market should be treated in the same fashion. There may be some sectors which trend in the opposite direction to the general market. If the overall strategy is short, there may still be opportunities to go long in some sectors that trend counter to the general market.

Analysis Tools

Market analysis is conducted using:

Trend channels to highlight primary and intermediate trends;

Classic Dow theory;

Support and resistance levels;

Chart patterns;

Price-volume relationships;

Reversal days, gaps and candlesticks.

Twiggs Money Flow, Volume Oscillator, Moving Average and MACD indicators are used to highlight some of these changes.

Time Frames

This is only a rough guide, as can be seen from the overlap.

Market Stages

There are four possible stages/phases:

20phases. png" /%

Base or bottom

The market ranges between support and resistance, after a stage 4 down-trend. The index normally whipsaws around long-term moving averages and there may be clear signs of accumulation, including declining volume on downward movements and increasing volume on rallies.

Primary up-trend

Stage 2 up-trends follow a breakout from stage 1. The index respects long-term moving averages (from above) and there should be strong volume on rallies and light volume on corrections.


The market levels off into a trading range after a stage 2 up-trend. The index normally whipsaws around long-term moving averages. with greater volatility than stage 1. A stage 3 top normally continues to show high volume as the market repeatedly attempts to overcome resistance. A dry-up of volume may signal that the trading range will breakout on the upside, reverting back to a stage 2 up-trend.

Primary down-trend

A stage 4 down-trend follows a break below a stage 3 top. The index respects long-term moving averages (from below), with strong volume on declines and light volume on upward corrections.

Sometimes the market forms a chart pattern, such as a descending or ascending triangle, in place of a rectangular trading range in stages 1 or 3.

Algorithmic Trading Strategies and Automated Stock Trading

“How about a nice game of chess?” — WOPR computer in War Games

There used to be two market structures for U. S. equity traders to contend with: the NYSE (for listed stocks) and NASDAQ. Recent counts put the number at roughly 40. Many are sources of dark liquidity, which sounds like red wine, but actually refers to market systems that allow (or require) hidden interest.(1)

This chapter goes into more depth on the flowering of electronic market access. Programs that started out as simple electronic order pads so brokers wouldn’t have to bother with their paper slips(2) for small orders are now complex software entities that game against each other in an ever more complex and fragmented equity market.

Here we look at how the meanest, smartest algorithms (aka algos) on the street got that way, and at the even meaner, smarter algorithms that will replace them. The Cold War is history, but there’s an arms race underway in securities algo trading. It started in the 1980s, and shows no signs of slowing down.

An early form of direct market access

Readers of a certain age and juvenile sensibility are no doubt familiar with Mad magazine’s “ Spy vs. Spy ” cartoons, which have run continuously This chapter is an expanded version of an article, “Algo vs. Algo,” that appeared in Institutional Investor Alpha magazine (February 2007). Reprinted by permission. since 1961 in the “Joke and Dagger” department. We see the spies, identical except for the color of their coats and hats, engage in an endless series of elaborate schemes to gain an advantage. Mad’s spies use an assortment of daggers, explosives, poisons, military hardware, and Rube Goldberg schemes in their war. The battle for supremacy in algorithmic execution uses an assortment of mathematics, programming, communications, computing hardware, and, yes, Rube Goldberg schemes.

It’s worthwhile to understand the simpler beginnings of electronic trading to better appreciate today’s elaborate systems, and the more elaborate systems that will replace them. When market systems involved chalkboards, shouting, hand signals, and large paper limit order books, there was no possibility of using a computer to execute trades. This changed in 1976, when the NYSE introduced the Designated Order Turnaround (DOT) system, the first electronic execution system. It was designed to free specialists and traders from the nuisance of 100-share market orders. The NASDAQ market, started in 1971, used computers to display prices, but relied on telephones for actual transactions until 1983 with the introduction of the Computer Assisted Execution System (CAES), and the Small Order Execution System (SOES) in 1984.

Simultaneous improvements in market data dissemination allowed computers to be used to access quote and trade streams. The specialists at the NYSE had a major technology upgrade in 1980, when the specialist posts themselves, which had not changed since the 1920s, were made electronic for the first time, dramatically reducing the latencies in trading. A study(3) of trading before and after the upgrade found major improvements in market quality.

Early electronic execution channels were for only the smallest market orders. But the permitted sizes grew quickly. Support for limit orders was added. DOT became SuperDOT. And the tool was adapted for direct use by the buy side, first by the little guys — a joint venture between Dick Rosenblatt and a technology provider, Davidge Data (more on that later) — and later by the big boys, who gave the product away for clearing business. It and the automated NASDAQ systems accommodated ever larger orders. Orders exceeding the size limits for automation were routed to specialists and market makers.

This was algorithmic trading without algorithms, an early form of direct market access. The first user interfaces were for one stock at a time, electronic versions of simple, single paper buy and sell slips. This became tedious, and soon execution capabilities for a list of names followed. Everyone was happy to be able to produce and screen these lists using their new Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets, which totaled everything up nicely to avoid costly errors.

We were only a step away from algorithmic trading. Programmers at the order origination end grew more capable and confident in their abilities to generate and monitor an ever larger number of small orders. Aha! Algo trading had snuck up on us.

Algos for Alpha to deliver superior automated trading performance via quantitative hedge funds

Early adopters of these ideas were not looking to minimize market impact or match volume weighted average price (VWAP). They were looking to make a boatload of cash, and willing to commit firm capital to do so.(4) Nunzio Tartaglia, a Jesuit-educated Ph. D. physicist with the vocabulary of a sailor, started an automated trading group at Morgan Stanley in the mid-1980s. He hired young Columbia computer science professor David Shaw.

At first, a few papers about hooking Unix systems to market systems emerged. Then the former academics realized there was no alpha in publications. Shaw went on to found D. E. Shaw Company, one of the largest and most consistently successful quantitative hedge funds. Fischer Black’s Quantitative Strategies Group at Goldman Sachs were algorithmic trading strategies pioneers. They were perhaps the first to use computers for actual trading, as well as for identifying trades.

The early alpha seekers were the first combatants in the algo wars. Pairs trading, popular at the time, relied on statistical models. Finding stronger short-term correlations than the next guy had big rewards. Escalation beyond pairs to groups of related securities was inevitable. Parallel developments in futures markets opened the door to electronic index arbitrage trading.

Automated market making was a valuable early algorithm strategy

Automated market making was a valuable early algorithm. In quiet, normal markets buying low and selling high across the spread was easy money. Real market makers have obligations to maintain a two-sided quote for their stocks, even in turbulent markets, which is often expensive. Electronic systems, without the obligations of market makers, not only were much faster at moving quotes, they could choose when not to make markets in a stock. David Whitcomb, founder of Automated Trading Desk (ATD),(5) another algorithm trading pioneer, describes his firm’s activity as “playing NASDAQ like a piano.”

There were other piano players. Morgan Stanley’s trading desk transformed into an automated market making system. Along with firms like Getco, Tradebot, and ATD, they came to dominate the inside quote and liquidity in the largest names today. Joe Gawronski, president of Rosenblatt Securities at the NYSE, sees a massive change in market structure brought about by these algo wars.

Faster data feeds and faster computation let you run ahead of the other kids in line. This was a time when the lag between one desktop data feed and another might be as much as 15 minutes. The path from market event to screen event had significant delays. Slow computers, sending information to slow humans over slow lines, were easy marks for early algo warriors willing to buy faster machinery and smart enough to code the programs to use it. This aspect of the arms race continues unabated today.

Algos for the Buy Side: Transaction Cost Control

It didn’t take long to notice that these new electronic trading techniques had something to offer to the buy side. Financial journals offered a stream of opinion, theory, and analysis of transaction costs. Firms like Wayne Wagner’s Plexus Group — now part of Investment Technology Group, Inc. (ITG) — made persuasive, well supported arguments about the importance of transaction costs. Pension plan sponsors, sitting at the top of the financial food chain, were convinced in large numbers. Index managers did not have to be convinced. With no alpha considerations in the picture, they observed that it was possible to run either a lousy index fund or a particularly good one. The difference was the cost of trading. Those passive managers, on their way to becoming trillion-dollar behemoths, were high-value clients to brokers.

S P 500) stocks and a simultaneous opposite position in the index futures, was just getting started at this time. Index arbitrageurs would bring their hundreds of order slips to the floor in wheelbarrows. So as not to signal whether they were buyers or sellers, they would have pairs of wheelbarrows, one with white slips and one with pink, ready at the edge of the trading floor. This got old fast, and the index arbs were eager early adopters of electronic trading.

The perfect trade

The perfect tradePositive Convexity

Posted by: Oliver Bergmann in: Derivatives

I remember reading an article about how only hedge funds that exhibited some form of positive convexity, regardless of strategy, survived over the long run. It was a published academic paper from about 6 years ago. If anyone remembers who the author was, please let me know.

The general idea was that the returns of even funds that trade no options or other inherently convex instruments could behave in a positively convex manner, and, in fact, that these types of funds exhibited significantly superior long-term survival relative to their seemingly negatively complex counterparts. This is intuitively obvious now that we have gone through the extreme market environment of the past year, but the study didnt encompass this time period. So whats going on here? And how can equity long-short returns be positively convex and convertible arbitrage returns be negatively convex?

The story is somewhat complicated, but lets try to keep it simple and break it down to its components. There are many elements to the equity long short positive convexity story, but the simplest way to think about it is behaviorally. If a fund manager generally cuts his losers and runs with his winners, he is going to tend to capture larger portions of favorable market moves.

It is vaguely reminiscent of the old Leland Rubenstein Obrien portfolio insurance (for those of you old enough to remember the 1987 Crash). These gentlemen were trying to replicate long options positions by dynamically trading the underlying. It works pretty well in continuous markets, but breaks down when there are gap moves (remember the Black-Scholes requirement of a diffusion process? Something about molecules bouncing off the walls of a beaker). Even so, it works much of the time.

The other problem is illiquidity in the funds holdings. This is analogous to gap moves, in the sense that one cannot continuously rehedge. It is likely the reason that long convertible arbitrage strategies became so highly negatively convex. Sell the losers? To whom?

Similar logic may be extended across all strategies. It gets particularly interesting when you start thinking about strategies that actually incorporate options (like volatility arbitrage) or highly convex fixed income securities (like IO MBS). Thats the topic for another post. As is what the implied theta is for behaving in this manner.

Remember, positive convexity is NEVER free.

4 Responses

Momentum trading will create a convex payoff. There will, however, be a cost of trading which is positive. When one replicates a call option, the cost of trading is equal to the theoretical premium. So, cool.

Black-Scholes presents this in continuous time. Discretizing the process incurs higher trading costs and so higher premiums. Hence there is an explicit cost of liquidity which can be quantified in implied vol points.

I think it would be immensely interesting to compare the results of variance gamma, jump diffusion and other discretization techniques to see how liquidity prices up in this theoretical framework.

On convertible arbitrage we have a more prosaic problem. Financing and liquidity. Theoretical relationships between convertible bonds, equity and CDS deviated substantially from theoretical due to an acute rise in risk pricing, in CDS counterparty risk, in the degree of stress in bank balance sheets leading to the withdrawal of financing, and in equity markets.

Converts were trading below bond floor where they are theoretically as well as practically negative gamma. Credit managers trading converts would understand this and would have only lost money trying to exit illiquid positions whereas equity deriv types would have been busy leaking gamma.

Remember, positive convexity is NEVER free.

This, only days after reports of a possible cold fusion breakthrough by US Navy scientists.

High probability forex engulfing candle trading strategy

High probability forex engulfing candle trading strategyHigh Probability Forex Engulfing Candle Trading Strategy

The engulfing candle trading strategy is one of my favorites. Its easy to spot and provides a way to enter a trend. Many traders use the engulfing candle to signal the end of a trend, but here we are going to use it to enter a trend at an opportune time. Using the trend and the engulfing candle as a trade trigger provide a powerful combination.

Candle stick charts have become a staple for most traders, and nearly every trading platform offers this highly visual chart style. Whether it is better than other chart forms I leave up to you. It isnt necessary to use candle sticks to trade the strategy, OHLC charts also work.

I use this strategy for day trading, although it can be applied to other time frames as well, and to various markets such as the stock market.

Engulfing Candle

There are two types of engulfing candles, a bullish engulfing candle and a bearish engulfing candle.

A bullish engulfing candle occurs when the fat part of an Up candle completely envelopes a prior Down candle. The fat part of the candle marks the distance between the open and close of that bar, while the wicks mark the high and low. While there is no specific size requirement, typically both bars in the pattern should be substantial, with the up bar showing a strong short-term shift in momentum.

Figure 1 shows an example of a bullish engulfing pattern in the AUDUSD.

On my charts, up candles are greenthe close is higher than the open. Down candles are redthe close of the candle is lower than the open of the candle.

A bearish engulfing candle occurs when the fat part of a Down candle completely envelopes a prior Up candle. Figure 2 shows an example of a bearish engulfing pattern in the EURUSD.

Figure 2. Bearish Engulfing Pattern: EURUSD 5-Minute Chart

If you look back at figure 1 youll notice that right before the bullish engulfing candle pattern, there was a bearish engulfing pattern as well. Engulfing candles occur quite often, which is why we need to some sort of other filter to trade them. I opt to use the trend .

Forex Engulfing Candle Trading Strategy

Engulfing candles occur often. While its appearance signifies a sharp short-term change in direction, many of these patterns arent of concern. In a trend there impulse waves and corrective waves. Ideally we want to enter on corrective waves, or pullbacks, and then ride the impulse for a profit.

The engulfing candle provides us a signal that a pullback is over, and the trend is about to resume. In the case of an uptrend, the bullish engulfing pattern signals that the selling which occurs on a pullback is over, and the buying is resuming. The trend doesnt always resume right away, we may simply get a small push in the trending direction before the pullback resumes. Losing trades occur, and that is OK, as all losing trades cant be avoided. Experienced traders can actively manage trades when this occurs, making a small profit or small loss. Alternatively, simply let the price hit your stop or target (discussed shortly) and let the odds of the trade, and having a larger potential profit than risk, work in your favor.

Figure 3. Bullish Engulfing Candle Trading Strategy in Uptrend

Get a current short, medium and long-term analysis of the EURUSD free…instantly: EURUSD Trend Analysis

For a bullish engulfing candle in an uptrend, the stop-loss is placed just below the low of the engulfing candle.

In the case of a downtrend, the bearish engulfing pattern signals the buying which occurs on a pullback is over, and the selling is resuming.

Figure 4. Bullish Engulfing Candle Trading Strategy in Downtrend

For a bearish engulfing candle in a downtrend. the stop-loss is placed just above the high of the engulfing candle.

Engulfing candles are simply an entry technique, and therefore dont provide a profit target. Profit targets can be established using Fibonacci Extensions. Apply the Fibonacci extension tool to the impulse wave and the pullback to get an indication of where the price will go on the next impulse wave.

Alternatively, use a 1.6:1 or 2:1 reward to risk ratio. For example if you risk is 10 pips, your profit target is 16 or 20 pips respectively.

To help filter which trade signals you take, and isolate the trend, you wish to employ other indicators, such as trendlines or a moving average .

Forex Engulfing Candle Trading Strategy Entry Point

The traditional method is to let candles complete before entering. That means once the the engulfing candle finishes and a new one begins we enter the trade. Yet price bars are arbitrary. There is no relevance to the close of a 1, 5 or 15-minute candle. Therefore, we are watching for these signals in real-time, and as soon as we see an engulfing pattern with the proper setup we trade it, without letting the bar complete.

In the stock market the daily open and close arent arbitrary, they are set and have impact. Therefore, stock traders may opt to let daily bars complete. Intra-day bar timed bars are still arbitrary.

Figure 5 shows how this works in a downtrend.

Figure 5. Forex Engulfing Candle Trading Strategy Entry Point

There are a number of reasons for doing this. Mainly, a timed price bar is arbitrary (if there are questions on this, I will respond to it in the comments section).

Also, it helps to reduce risk. Engulfing candles show a powerful change in direction. If we wait for a bar to complete it may have already run significantly, which means our stop is bigger and our profit potential is diminished.

Finally, were trading with the trend, so probability is already on our side. Getting in before a bar closes doesnt change our odds of success.

It is possible that when we look back at our trades, an engulfing pattern may not be present. By entering early we allow for possibility that by the time the bar closes it is no longer a traditional pattern. Yet in real-time it exhibited the shift in momentum we were looking for, and that is all that matters.

The engulfing signal doesnt necessarily have to come from one bar either. Assume we have a downtrend, and a pullback moving higher. Then a down (red) bar comes, but it isnt quite an engulfing candle. A few seconds after another down (red) starts taking out the lows of prior up (green) candles. To me this is a still a valid entry. Even though it was over a number of candles, it still shows the change direction. Once again, traders need to rid themselves of the notion that there is something magic about the close of a bar, especially in forex day trading. For examples on how to use multiple bars to enter a trend during a pullback, see the ABC Forex Trading Strategy Video. The video also provides some other information which will helpful in reading trends.

Forex Engulfing Candle Trading Strategy Final Word

The goal of the strategy is to isolate a trend, and then use engulfing patterns to signal the pullback is ending and the trend is resuming. Not every pullback ends with an engulfing pattern though, sometimes we can use multiple bars to signal the end of a pullback (see video mentioned above).There is no need to wait for the engulfing candle to complete. Once it has engulfed the prior candle, take the trade. Engulfing patterns dont have a specific profit target, therefore using a Fibonacci extensions or a fixed reward to risk ratio. Stops are placed above the high of a bearish engulfing pattern, or below the low of a bullish engulfing pattern.

If trading on a 1 or 5 minute chart, trying using an ECN forex broker with a near zero spread. Heres the ECN broker I use (they also have normal accounts).With an ECN broker you can more efficiently exploit intra-day opportunities, since you arent concerned about the spread.

Trading strategy hedge fund

Trading strategy hedge fundSynopsis of Hedge Fund Strategies

It is important to understand the differences between the various hedge fund strategies because all hedge funds are not the same -- investment returns, volatility, and risk vary enormously among the different hedge fund strategies . Some strategies which are not correlated to equity markets are able to deliver consistent returns with extremely low risk of loss, while others may be as or more volatile than mutual funds. A successful fund of funds recognizes these differences and blends various strategies and asset classes together to create more stable long-term investment returns than any of the individual funds.

Key Characteristics of Hedge Funds

Many, but not all, hedge fund strategies tend to hedge against downturns in the markets being traded.

Hedge funds are flexible in their investment options (can use short selling, leverage, derivatives such as puts, calls, options, futures, etc.).

Hedge funds benefit by heavily weighting hedge fund managers’ remuneration towards performance incentives, thus attracting the best brains in the investment business.

Facts About the Hedge Fund Industry

Estimated to be a trillion dollar industry, with about 8350 active hedge funds.

Includes a variety of investment strategies, some of which use leverage and derivatives while others are more conservative and employ little or no leverage. Many hedge fund strategies seek to reduce market risk specifically by shorting equities or derivatives.

Most hedge funds are highly specialized, relying on the specific expertise of the manager or management team.

Performance of many hedge fund strategies, particularly relative value strategies, is not dependent on the direction of the bond or equity markets -- unlike conventional equity or mutual funds (unit trusts), which are generally 100% exposed to market risk.

Many hedge fund strategies, particularly arbitrage strategies, are limited as to how much capital they can successfully employ before returns diminish. As a result, many successful hedge fund managers limit the amount of capital they will accept.

Hedge fund managers are generally highly professional, disciplined and diligent.

Their returns over a sustained period of time have outperformed standard equity and bond indexes with less volatility and less risk of loss than equities.

Beyond the averages, there are some truly outstanding performers.

Investing in hedge funds tends to be favored by more sophisticated investors, including many Swiss and other private banks, who have lived through, and understand the consequences of, major stock market corrections. Many endowments and pension funds allocate assets to hedge funds.

Popular Misconception

The popular misconception is that all hedge funds are volatile -- that they all use global macro strategies and place large directional bets on stocks, currencies, bonds, commodities, and gold, while using lots of leverage. In reality, less than 5% of hedge funds are global macro funds like Quantum, Tiger, and Strome. Most hedge funds use derivatives only for hedging or don’t use derivatives at all, and many use no leverage.

Hedge Fund Strategies

The predictability of future results show a strong correlation with the volatility of each strategy. Future performance of strategies with high volatility is far less predictable than future performance from strategies experiencing low or moderate volatility.

Aggressive Growth: Invests in equities expected to experience acceleration in growth of earnings per share. Generally high P/E ratios, low or no dividends; often smaller and micro cap stocks which are expected to experience rapid growth. Includes sector specialist funds such as technology, banking, or biotechnology. Hedges by shorting equities where earnings disappointment is expected or by shorting stock indexes. Tends to be long-biased. Expected Volatility: High

Distressed Securities: Buys equity, debt, or trade claims at deep discounts of companies in or facing bankruptcy or reorganization. Profits from the market’s lack of understanding of the true value of the deeply discounted securities and because the majority of institutional investors cannot own below investment grade securities. (This selling pressure creates the deep discount.) Results generally not dependent on the direction of the markets. Expected Volatility: Low - Moderate

Emerging Markets: Invests in equity or debt of emerging (less mature) markets which tend to have higher inflation and volatile growth. Short selling is not permitted in many emerging markets, and, therefore, effective hedging is often not available, although Brady debt can be partially hedged via U. S. Treasury futures and currency markets. Expected Volatility: Very High

Fund of Funds: Mixes and matches hedge funds and other pooled investment vehicles. This blending of different strategies and asset classes aims to provide a more stable long-term investment return than any of the individual funds. Returns, risk, and volatility can be controlled by the mix of underlying strategies and funds. Capital preservation is generally an important consideration. Volatility depends on the mix and ratio of strategies employed. Expected Volatility: Low - Moderate

Income: Invests with primary focus on yield or current income rather than solely on capital gains. May utilize leverage to buy bonds and sometimes fixed income derivatives in order to profit from principal appreciation and interest income. Expected Volatility: Low

Macro: Aims to profit from changes in global economies, typically brought about by shifts in government policy which impact interest rates, in turn affecting currency, stock, and bond markets. Participates in all major markets -- equities, bonds, currencies and commodities -- though not always at the same time. Uses leverage and derivatives to accentuate the impact of market moves. Utilizes hedging, but leveraged directional bets tend to make the largest impact on performance. Expected Volatility: Very High

Market Neutral - Arbitrage: Attempts to hedge out most market risk by taking offsetting positions, often in different securities of the same issuer. For example, can be long convertible bonds and short the underlying issuers equity. May also use futures to hedge out interest rate risk. Focuses on obtaining returns with low or no correlation to both the equity and bond markets. These relative value strategies include fixed income arbitrage, mortgage backed securities, capital structure arbitrage, and closed-end fund arbitrage. Expected Volatility: Low

Market Neutral - Securities Hedging: Invests equally in long and short equity portfolios generally in the same sectors of the market. Market risk is greatly reduced, but effective stock analysis and stock picking is essential to obtaining meaningful results. Leverage may be used to enhance returns. Usually low or no correlation to the market. Sometimes uses market index futures to hedge out systematic (market) risk. Relative benchmark index usually T-bills. Expected Volatility: Low

Market Timing: Allocates assets among different asset classes depending on the manager’s view of the economic or market outlook. Portfolio emphasis may swing widely between asset classes. Unpredictability of market movements and the difficulty of timing entry and exit from markets adds to the volatility of this strategy. Expected Volatility: High

Opportunistic: Investment theme changes from strategy to strategy as opportunities arise to profit from events such as IPOs, sudden price changes often caused by an interim earnings disappointment, hostile bids, and other event-driven opportunities. May utilize several of these investing styles at a given time and is not restricted to any particular investment approach or asset class. Expected Volatility: Variable

Multi Strategy: Investment approach is diversified by employing various strategies simultaneously to realize short - and long-term gains. Other strategies may include systems trading such as trend following and various diversified technical strategies. This style of investing allows the manager to overweight or underweight different strategies to best capitalize on current investment opportunities. Expected Volatility: Variable

Short Selling: Sells securities short in anticipation of being able to rebuy them at a future date at a lower price due to the manager’s assessment of the overvaluation of the securities, or the market, or in anticipation of earnings disappointments often due to accounting irregularities, new competition, change of management, etc. Often used as a hedge to offset long-only portfolios and by those who feel the market is approaching a bearish cycle. High risk. Expected Volatility: Very High

Special Situations: Invests in event-driven situations such as mergers, hostile takeovers, reorganizations, or leveraged buy outs. May involve simultaneous purchase of stock in companies being acquired, and the sale of stock in its acquirer, hoping to profit from the spread between the current market price and the ultimate purchase price of the company. May also utilize derivatives to leverage returns and to hedge out interest rate and/or market risk. Results generally not dependent on direction of market. Expected Volatility: Moderate

Value: Invests in securities perceived to be selling at deep discounts to their intrinsic or potential worth. Such securities may be out of favour or underfollowed by analysts. Long-term holding, patience, and strong discipline are often required until the ultimate value is recognized by the market. Expected Volatility: Low - Moderate

Option Strategies

Hedge fund strategies are the backbone of return generation for the hedge fund community. One of the most profitable are options strategies which can generate healthy and stable returns. Options strategies range from complex volatility strategies to a simple covered call approach.

Options are the right, but not the obligation to purchase an asset at a specific price on a specific date and time. Options exist in both the regulated exchange environment as well as in the over-the-counter market. Simple vanilla options are calls, which give an investor the right to purchase an asset, and puts, which give an investor the right to sell an asset.

Options are priced using a formula, the most famous being the Black Scholes model. The major components to the model are the current price of the asset, the strike price, interest rates, the time to expiration and implied volatility.

Implied volatility is considered the most important component of options valuation. This variable is created by the marketplace. It can be defined as the perceived fluctuation in prices of an asset over the course of a specific period from the current price on an annualized basis. Implied volatility is different from historical volatility in that implied volatility is not the actual movements, but instead the estimated future movement of an asset price.

Many options strategies are geared toward speculating on the direction of implied volatility (IV) which is a mean reverting process. One of the easiest ways to speculate on implied volatility is to trade futures or ETF's that follow the direction of implied volatility. For example, one of the most prolific products is the VIX volatility index which measures the level of at-the-money implied volatility of the S&P 500 index.

Generally, implied volatility moves around in a well defined range which allows strategies to create an approach in which IV is purchased at the bottom end of a defined range, and sold at the upper end of a defined range as shown in the graph below which uses Bollinger bands. This study uses a 2-standard deviation around a 20-day moving average as its range levels.

Other types of volatility strategies include purchasing and selling Straddles, Strangles and Iron Condors. These types of strategies attempt to take advantage of not only implied volatility, but additionally the shape of the volatility strike map curve. The skew, which is defined by the shape of the volatility curve, changes as supply and demand for out of the money options change. The skew fluctuates independently and does not follow at-the-money implied volatility which is the benchmark for volatility trading.

A Straddle is a strategy where the portfolio manager purchases or sells at-the-money calls and puts at the same strike, which is also the most liquid of the current available options. To buy or sell out of the money options simultaneously, an investor would transact a Strangle. An Iron Condor is the simultaneous purchase and sale of a call spread and a put spread.

Other strategies include covered call selling, which is an income producing trading strategy, along with outright naked long and short sales of options. Covered calls allow a portfolio manager to hedge their downside exposure and receive a guaranteed income in return for capping the upside. Naked calls and puts simultaneously speculate on the direction of the underlying market along with the direction of implied volatility.

We prefer to trade the Hedge Hog manually based on the feel of the overall market, the sectors involved in the hedge, and the commodities that are related to each hedge. Being directional traders ourselves, we have not bothered to develop this strategy to the point of being able to back test it because there is a bit of an art that is part of each trade. Also, the cycles change with the price of each instrument being hedged, and Esignals EFS can not efficiently internalize a control agent for back-testing. Trades can be taken or exited based on several signals with this system, most prominently trendline breaks.

That being said, this strategy, proprietary editable indicator, and system that are all included can be easily back-tested on a more robust system that Esignal, and can also be developed into new trading strategies and techniques far beyond our use for it. We believe also that the time/cycle component and unique use of Ganns square of 9 is worth more than the price of this seminar. These principle can be used to precisely time intraday moves on many instruments, and can be applied far beyond hedging. This system was developed for a large institutional client who at the time had 30/1 portfolio margin leverage. Directional and individual traders who dont have that leverage will find little use or profitability for this strategy on a day to day basis.

The strategy was designed for equities, but weve seen it work on certain futures. This strategy and seminar is now available via SKYPE SESSION!! Hedge funds, prop firms, and other financial institutions only: we also ask for 3% of trading profits for up to 1 year to license the strategy and code to every trader in the firm (does not apply to individual traders, even if they trade a firms money). Buyout price for exclusivity: $7,500 USD (meaning we will agree not to teach or license this strategy to anyone else).

Chart to watch-eurusd(forex eurusd)Chart to Watch - EURUSD (FOREX:EURUSD)

February 3, 2014 By Jeremy Lutz

We've asked our friend Jim Robinson of profittrading to provide his expert analysis of charts to our readers. Each week he'll be analyzing a different chart using the Trade Triangles and his experience.

Today he is going to take a look at the technical picture of the EURUSD Forex pair (FOREX:EURUSD ).

When trading Forex with the MarketClub system, you use the weekly Trade Triangles to tell trend, and the daily Trade Triangles to time the entry and exits points of the trade.

The EURUSD made a double top on a bearish MACD momentum divergence.

When the EURUSD broke through the double top support, MarketClub triggered a weekly red Trade Triangle signaling the trend had turned down for the EURUSD.

Since the red weekly Trade Triangle was triggered, there have been two new daily red Trade Triangles which were both opportunities to go short.

Friday (1/31/14) the EURUSD broke through current support and both the weekly and daily Trade Triangles are red which puts the odds with lower prices from here.

The EURUSD is an excellent Chart to Watch, as the picture is clearly bearish right now and there looks to be great opportunity on the downside.

Yen trading strategy

Yen trading strategyJapanese Yen ETFs And The Carry Trade

Feb. 6, 2013 8:37 PM

The Japanese yen and related currency exchange traded fund are depreciating in value as the government implements aggressive quantitative easing measures. Consequently, more currency traders are implementing carry trades to capitalize on the depreciated yen.

For carry trades, currency traders would borrow a low yielding currency, like the yen, to fund investments in higher yielding assets, like the Australian dollar. A depreciating currency is also better for a carry trade, as the investor would have to repay less when he or she returned the borrowed funds.

However, the yen carry trade has been less popular in the past few years as U. S. and eurozone monetary easing pushed rates to near-zero levels.

Now that the yen is depreciating again, traders have turned back to the Japanese currency. The yen depreciated 13% against the U. S. dollar in the past three months, dipping to a two and half year low, reports Dhara Ranasinghe for CNBC .

Meanwhile, the CurrencyShares Japanese Yen Trust Fund (NYSEARCA:FXY ) is down 12.3% over the last three months.

The yen is regaining its ground as a funding currency, Jesper Bargmann, head of G11 currencies at Royal Bank of Scotland, said in the article. Sentiment has changed in markets, pretty much since January 1. Risk appetite has returned, there's increased confidence and a search for yield, so the yen seems to be suffering as a result of that.

Bargmann anticipates the dollar/yen rate to hit 100 in the second half from its current 90 level. Other analysts expect the yen carry trade to pick up if the global economy rebounds and stokes demand for riskier assets.

We are seeing the carry trade, but it is more selective than what we saw in 2004-2007, when money went into all risk assets, Bargmann added. The reason for this is because fear in financial markets has been replaced by caution following the global financial crisis.

The weakening Japanese yen has also taken a toll on the iShares MSCI Japan Index Fund (NYSEARCA:EWJ ) . which does not hedge currency risks, even though Japanese stocks have rallied. EWJ has gained 9.2% over the past three months. In comparison, WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund (NYSEARCA:DXJ ) and db-X MSCI Japan Currency-Hedged Equity Fund (NYSEARCA:DBJP ) . which both hedge against the depreciating yen, have gained around 24% over the last three months.

Investors can also look at ETF options that implement a carry trade strategy. The PowerShares DB G10 Currency Harvest Portfolio (NYSEARCA:DBV ) and the iPath Optimized Currency Carry ETN (NYSEARCA:ICI ) both invest in a basket of high-yielding currencies while borrowing from currencies with low interest rates.

Carry Trade Strategy Example

Carry Trade Example

Below is a chart illustrating a typical example where the carry trade strategy could have been best applied. The chart shows a steady increase of the GBP/JPY pair in 2005 and 2006, spawned, among other things, by carry traders going long to obtain the interest rate differential.

A carry trader who took advantage of the interest rate differential in the GBP/JPY would have had the following profit, had he/she bought one standard lot of the GBP/JPY at about the same time last year, and decided to sell a year later.

To become a successful carry trader, understanding the role that interest rates play in the FX market is a crucial task. A country offering high interest rates will attract more capital as investors seek to capitalize higher returns. As interest rates rise, investment will follow, which can in turn increase the value of the currency. Carry traders main focus becomes the expectation on the direction of a countrys interest rate, to ensure their high rate of return.

Intermediate Forex Traders

Forex Trading Basics for the Intermediate Trader

The contents of this page, as mentioned, assumes that you have some knowledge of forex and currency trading: what it is, how it works and some of the terminology used, but that you do not yet actually trade forex and you're here to learn how to trade forex for profits.

How to Profitably Trade Forex

How did you learn how to speak English? Stand upright? Kiss?

The best lessons in life are ones that you learn through experience.

A huge amount of time is spent in classrooms doing exercises mentally, or on paper. That's all well and good, but its no substitute for experience. Book-smarts are something you learn, but experience is something you earn. You feel it, first hand. It shapes you.

Everyone learns everything by practicing. The more realism you have in your practice, the more you learn. Even people who are naturally gifted or academically brilliant only find out if they can really hack-it when they're doing it for real.

In this section we'll encourage you to put your forex training into practice. Buying and selling forex; practice techniques for 'reading' the market; and when you mess-up, as rookies do, it will be a valuable lesson because it will be a painful one. Not too painful! You won't lose large amounts of money. But you'll be doing it live, so the experience will be real.

You cannot trade forex unless you have an F/X account at a brokerage. Most forex trading guides would suggest that you start your forex trading career by signing-up for a brokerage account and then trading using a demo account. We think there is a better way. Here's why:

If all you do is buy and sell forex in a dummy account, you will get a very limited experience. This is for one simple reason: people act very differently, when they are trading on paper, and trading for real.

This is not just something that happens in forex. It happens in buying and selling shares; commodities, etc. It even happens in online Poker. People behave very differently when they are using 'play chips' than they do when they are using real money.

Using a dummy account can lead you to developing bad habits – when it's not real money people take bigger risks, with bigger sums. That's not a set of habits you want to get into!

When you switch from using 'dummy' money to the real thing there is a readjustment phase. Suddenly you're not as confident. You make more conservative deals. You close positions quicker if they're not going your way. You start acting like the indecisive kid in the candy store we met in the newbie page.

There is a better way to gain the experience that you need. It's not quite in-at-the-deep-end, but it is real; it is live.

Studies have shown that the quantity of real money does not influence the behavior of new traders: I. e. Even if the amount of 'real' money involved in making trades is very small, people still behave differently to the way they behave if the money is just dummy money.

We believe that is the best way to learn. You start gaining forex trading experience immediately. Real experience. You can start your life as a trader with a $50 deposit, but just to be sure that you have some breathing room we suggest that you actually start with a $250 margin deposit.

The first time you start trading you will probably feel a mix of emotions from nervousness to excitement. This is normal. Trading forex is exciting. Once you've registered your account and opened your first position, you are a forex trader.

We have also chosen these forex brokers because they have a lot of resources useful to new spot traders. How to's; a big glossary; chart information; forex calendar, etc. there is an awful lot of very useful information on their website.

Stop before you start!

Before you make your first trade we must tell you about your safety net. It's called a Stop Loss. A stop loss automatically closes a position if your trade is losing money. In fact “ejector seat” is probably more accurate than “safety net.”

Stop Loss examples

If the USD/ JPY rate was 125.00 and you chose to buy Yen, you should put in a STOP LOSS at 124.70 - about 30 “pips” lower than the starting rate you bought at. Now if the market goes against you and the Yen falls, your position will automatically close when the rate reaches 124.70. This will Stop you from Losing more money.

If the EUR/ USD rate was 1.3000 and you chose to sell Euro, you should put in a STOP LOSS at 1.3030 - about 30 “pips” higher than the starting rate you sold at. Now if the market goes against you and the Euro rises, your position will automatically close when the rate reaches 1.3030. This will Stop you from Losing more money.

Your first trade

You've opened a forex trading account. What trade should you make? Open these positions

Buy $1,250 worth of Yen

Sell $1,250 worth of Euro

Don't forget to include your Stop Loss ejector seat! (Every time you trade).

Keep those positions open for a day and watch what happens by checking the rates every few hours.

The above is no strategy. There is no secret to it; there is no formula. You may make money, you may lose money. In fact we kinda hope you lose! Not because we have anything against you. It's to kick-start your experience as a forex trader.

What is important is that you experience your first trades. Once your own money is on-the-line the reasons and wherefores become so much more important. Did the dollar rise? Did it fall? What happened in the financial news that day? What events were on the forex calender? Were there any big political moves or announcements? Was it all quiet on the news-front?

When you have some experience with forex and you have made enough trades to feel comfortable learning more about forex strategies, we will introduce you to some of the better ones that help make big gains for traders in our Forex Trading Strategies section. For the moment though it is important to find your bearings: learn how to buy and sell, see bid and ask in action. See how the international news effects your profits and losses.

If you are brand new to the rest of the concepts on this page, be warned, it gets fairly deep fairly quick. Again, its the kind of thing that's obvious within a week of becoming an active forex trader, so take your time and try to understand each paragraph before you move on to the next.

Margins and losses

We explained margins briefly on the newbie page. As we said, you give the broker a “margin deposit” of $250. So what happens when you make a profit or a loss?

If you make a profit, everybody's happy!

You will make a profit on the above trades (in simple terms) if the Yen rises and the Euro falls.

Imagine that the yen rises by 2.5% and the Euro falls by 2.5% (these would be huge moves for one day, by the way). You would basically make a profit of $31.25 from each trade, for a total of $62.50 on paper. That's how much actual money you would profit by if you “closed” the positions and completed your trades. Lets assume that you do close out those positions.

The balance of your account would be:

$250 deposit + $62.50 = $312.50

Since your margin cover (cash) balance is now $312.50, you can now make trades of over $15,000 because you have the necessary funds in your account in the form of cash.

If you make a loss.

If there is a small change in the rates that go against you and you make a small loss (on paper) you may chose to keep the positions open in the hope that they come back 'round. You may close the position and realize that loss (i. e. make it real, not just on paper).

If you lose $10 in total on the 2 trades, that would reduce your cash balance to $240. This would in turn reduce the total amount you could use on margin.

Feel the pain

If you make a loss, have a good look at the market factors. What the hell happened? Why did you make that loss? Even though we suggested these trades (they could have been any trades) you made them. They are yours. Own the loss. Taking on board the real experience of making a loss and seeing why this happened will help make you a good investor. We hope you do make a loss on your first trade. It is a fitting baptism for any forex trader.

But what if things really went against you?

What if the market goes against you and you have a small margin deposit of only $125 and you did not have a Stop Loss? What if the yen falls by 2.5% and the Euro climbs by 2.5% (again these would be huge moves for one day!). You would be making a loss of $62.50 on paper.

Crucially that loss is equal to half your margin deposit, which was $125.

This would trigger what is know as a “margin call.” You would get a call, or an e-mail telling you that you need to add funds to your account in order to cover your margin.

I. e. If you closed-out your positions you would have a cash balance of $125 deposit - $62.50 loss

You would have $62.50 left. Once your usable margin has been reduced to zero, a margin call may ensue. The amount of available margin or used margin depends on which leverage level you apply on your account.

The broker does not want anyone to lose too much money, so they ask you to 'cover' the difference by putting more cash into your account, even if you wish to keep your position open.

It is highly unlikely that you would make a loss equal to or greater than half your margin deposit on your fist trades, but it may happen at some time.

If you do get margin call you need to know what it is and how to keep your positions open.

Your next trades

We're not going to give you a full set of “here: make these trades.” Each trade has to be made on a series of factors. Factors that need analysis. We can't just print them on a static page like this one and hope that they would work each time.

Suffice it to say that you have to make trades based on market conditions, and how you read those conditions. Simple things like an interest rate rise in a country generally means their spot rate rises too and if you can predict that before it happens, you can make money trading forex.

It is time for you to earn your stripes through trial and error (and success too, of course).

If you're familiar with trading or played with demo accounts and you just need some strategies to get going, we have our favorite inexpensive resources on our forex trading systems and strategies page. We believe these are great forex resources to learn from and they can help build your forex trading foundation.

In the more advanced pages we mention several proven techniques and we have links to how-to guides. Trading in forex is an exciting world.

Tagged gbpSimple Opening Range Breakout

The London market is the most active FX market of the 3 major financial centers and where most trades take place. Therefore, it is logical to deduce that most position traders will place their bets and enter their positions when there is maximum liquidity.

We are trying to make use of the trend that can develop out of this kind of activities. The opening range trend can be observed on most market opening times. These include the Asian and US market opens as well. However, we will stick with the London market hours as there is a greater chance of it happening.

This strategy is most effective on Europe currency pairs.


This is an intraday trading strategy. The chart timeframe will be 1H.

The important hour we are looking at is from 6 GMT to 7 GMT.

At the close of the 6 GMT bar, place a Long/Buy order 2 pips above the high of the bar and a Short/Sell order 2 pips below the low of the bar.

Initial stop loss is the other side of the opening bar. When the trade goes into positive territory, trail your stop using the Parabolic Stop and Reverse indicator (or SAR). When using SAR to set stop loss point, always use the value of the previous bar that has closed, so it would not keep changing.

I would take only a maximum of 2 trades per day, if the first trade is a loser. Because, it price chops around, then there are not enough buying/selling strength around and it does not make sense to stay around!

Other ways to trail includes using a 20 EMA, a time stop (exit position at end of day). A very aggressive way to trade is to not set only initial stop loss and never trail it. Instead, I will only get out of my trade when a opposite trade signal appears. Meaning I can keep getting long and pyramiding for 5 days straight and getting out and turning short on the 6th day when a short signal appears. You can see some spectacular profits trading this way but it does not happen very often. Also, it greatly lowers your win rate. So there is a tradeoff here as always, between risk and return!

Inside Bar Breakout Trade

This is a simple strategy that does not make use of any indicators, just price bars.

This strategy can be traded on any time frames and any currency pairs or even non currencies. I have success trading the Nikkei225 and other related stock index futures as well.

There are many definitions of what qualifies as a valid inside bar. To me, the entire inside bar, with its high and low should be inside the high and low of the previous bar. It does not matter what the open and close combinations are.

Once an inside bar is observed, set a limit order to long on a breakout 2 pips above the high of the inside bar or set a limit order to short on a breakout 2 pips below the low of the inside bar.

I would also use a EMA as a filter. For example, if an inside bar appeared on while price is trading below the EMA, I will only take shorts. Vice versa, if the inside bar appeared above the EMA, I will only take long breakouts.

Currency pairs I trade this on includes EUR/USD, GBP/USD and GBP/JPY. GBP pairs are especially suited for breakout strategies as they are sufficiently volatile.

Open GBP/USD chart and go to 1H timeframe.

Add 20 EMA.

Start to look out for inside bars on close. Alternatively, you can use the following indicators to help spot inside bars.

[add indicators. ]

Initial stop loss will be on the other side of the inside bar. If the trade goes our way, a trailing stop is placed at the EMA.

For Shorts

If we are short, we will exit the trade when price closes ABOVE the EMA.

Alternatively, you can trail more aggressively by placing a stop above the highs of the previous 2 bars.

For Longs,

If we are long, we will exit the trade when price closes BELOW the EMA.

Or, you can trail aggressively by placing the stop loss below the lows of the previous 2 bars.

Our initial stops will often times be really small, sometimes even less than 10 pips on 1H timeframe. However, winning trades often generates profits of more than 2 times risk.

Example below shows GBP at 1H timeframe, and 3 trades would have been taken. The first inside bar has a high of 1.5389 and a low of 1.5371. Therefore, we will place a limit order to short at 2 pips below the low, which will be 1.5369. Likewise, the stop loss level will be at 2 pips above the high, at 1.5291.

The trade gained +99 pips on a stop loss of 22 pips, yielding a 4 times risk reward ratio. However, there were 2 losers during the same period that cost us -21 pips and -13 pips respectively.

20 SMA Envelope and ATR

Suggested currency pair: GBP/USD

Timeframe: Daily, 1H

Indicators: 20 period SMA with 0.5% envelope applied, 14 period ATR

Long at open of next bar when price close above the upper bound of the envelope. Initial stop loss is ATR of the signal bar.

Short at open of next bar when price close below the lower bound of the envelope. Initial stop loss is ATR of signal bar.

If trade is stopped out, we will wait until a new trading signal appears.

If the trade is going for us, we will keep our trade open until the opposite trade signal appears.

Price close at 1.4696, which is above the upper bound of 1.4564. The ATR is 191 and will be our stop loss size.

Long at 1.4696 with initial stop loss placed at 1.4505.

Closed trade at 1.5575 when Short trade signal appeared for a profit of 879 pips on risk of 191 pips.

Short signal appeared and we close out our previous long and reverse our position to turn short.

We shorted at 1.5575 with a stop loss at 1.5724, a 149 pips stop loss.

20 day High and Low Breakout

20 day High and Low Breakout

Trading entries based on new price highs and lows of N days/periods ago are as old as trend following and breakout trading itself.

However, it is not too much to say that Turtle trading and the Donchian price channel breakout methodology pushed it into the mainstream.

Currency pairs: EUR/USD, EUR/JPY, GBP/USD, GBP/JPY and USD/JPY.

Japanese Yen currency pairs perform best and often have sustained trends probably due to the popularity of Carry trading strategies.

For Longs/Buys:

Set Long/Buy order 2 pips above the High of the previous 20 days.

Initial stop loss will be equal to ATR.

The 10 Day low will be our trailing stop when price move further up. Stop is placed 2 pips below it.

How to buy stocks online with no minimumThings You'll Need

Computer with (preferably) a high-speed Internet connection

Trading stocks online with a no-minimum brokerage account

The first thing any would-be investor should do is research the various brokers with online trading. Typically, online brokers require a minimum of $500 or more to set up an account, but a few require no minimum. Certain websites list online brokers and provide details about each one. Among online brokers that require no minimum are ShareBuilder, the online investment arm of ING Direct; Zecco; and Charles Schwab.

As you research various brokers, you may want to consider factors such as how much specific firms charge for trades. Investors should also note the services available. Anyone considering opening an account with a specific online broker should thoroughly research the type of support available. Some online firms offer only online support, while others provide telephone support as well. In some cases, an online broker may maintain small offices in selected cities. Having an office nearby is a plus if you need help or decide to cash out available funds and want a check tomorrow instead of a week from tomorrow.

When you select a broker, you will be asked to complete an account application. Most firms accept applications online, but a few require would-be clients to print out the application and either fax it or send it by mail. The application may ask for some credit information, including bank account numbers. Some firms will draft money from a bank account to set up trading, but others may require you to send a check by mail. Once your application is approved and your funds have cleared, you will be ready to start trading stocks.

Find an online investing tutorial to guide you through the initial steps of researching companies whose stock you are considering. Sites like msn, aol and yahoo provide a wealth of investing tools including stock ratings, quotes and up-to-date news regarding the financial markets.

First-time investors and those who begin trading with limited funds may want to look into exchange traded funds, commonly known as ETFs. Unlike an individual stock, which offers the investor the opportunity to buy into one company, an ETF makes it possible with one transaction to invest in several companies within a specific sector. ETFs are traded like individual securities, but they offer the diversification of mutual funds. ETFs reflect all sectors of the economy, including banks, health care, housing, energy, consumer goods, bonds and commodities. It is also possible to invest in currencies and international companies through ETFs. The Internet provides a wealth of information for anyone interested in learning more about ETFs.

Four basic etf option trading strategies

Four basic etf option trading strategiesFour Basic ETF Option Trading Strategies

By Mark Kennedy. Exchange Traded Funds Expert

Mark Kennedy has traded ETFs for over 14 years. He was an ETF options trader on the Philadelphia Stock Exchange floor and a Vice President of Derivatives Trading for Goldman Sachs. Now he enjoys writing about ETFs and giving first-hand insight to his readers. Read more

As with equities and indexes, there are many ETFs that list options. And while there are many derivative strategies to utilize in conjunction with ETFs, here are four basic ways to utilize options. Whether you are looking for temporary exposure to a certain sector or looking to hedge current ETF positions in your portfolio, an ETF option may be the perfect asset for your investment strategy .

A call option is the right to buy stock, or in this case an ETF. Up until the expiration date of the call, you have the right to buy the underlying ETF at a certain price known as the strike price.

While the price of each call option will vary depending on the current price of the underlying ETF, you can protect or expose yourself to upside buy purchasing a call. To break even on the long call trade, you just have to hope the ETF rises above the strike price and the purchase price of the call you bought. So if you buy the Dec 80 call for $2, you need the ETF to climb above $82 to break even. Anything over $82 is profit. If the ETF never gets above $80, your loss is $2 for every call you bought.

Continue Reading Below

2. Selling a Call Option

When you sell a call, you take the opposite position of a call buyer. You want the ETF to go down. Using our example, if you sell the Dec 80 call for $2, you will make $2 on every call if the ETF price never rises above $80. However, if the ETF does climb above the break-even point of $82, you are liable to sell the ETF at $80 to the call owner and incur the loss.

Selling options is a more advanced trading strategy than buying options. When purchasing options, the maximum risk is the purchase price and the profit is unlimited to the upside. However when selling an option, the maximum profit is the sale price and the risk is unlimited. An investor should be very careful and very educated before selling options.

3. Buying a Put Option

There is a safer way to gain exposure or hedge the downside of an ETF than selling a call option. If you think an ETF will decline in value or if you want to protect downside risk, buying a put option may be the way to go. A put option is the right to sell an ETF at a certain price. Using our example, if you buy the Dec 80 put, you will have the right to sell the underlying ETF for $80 at any time before December. If the ETF trades at $75 anytime before December, you can sell it at $80 and profit on the difference in price. If the ETF stays above $80, then your put will expire worthless. You wouldn’t sell the ETF at $80 if it is trading at a higher price.

Again, you have to factor the purchase price into your equation. If the Dec 80 put is bought for $4, then your break-even point is $76 ($80-$4). So if the ETF is trading at $75, and you exercise your right to sell it at $80, you would make $1 on every option you bought. If the ETF never dips below $80 before the put expires in December, your loss will be the $4 purchase price on every option.

4. Selling a Put Option

When you sell a put option, you give the right to the put buyer to sell the ETF at the strike price at ay time before expiration. This is the opposite position of purchasing a put, but similar to buying a call. You want the ETF to rise or stay above the strike price.

Using our example, if you sell the Dec 80 put for $4, you never want the ETF to go below $80 before the put expires in December. Or at least not below the break-even point of $76. If that holds true, you profit $4 on every put you sold. However, if the ETF drops below the break-even price, you will start to incur losses on every put that is exercised.

Again, it is important to note that selling options has more risk than buying options. That is not to say it isn’t profitable. The cost of that risk is factored into the price of an option. But if you are a beginner in the world of calls and puts, buying ETF options is the safer route.

While there are many more ways to incorporate ETF option strategies into your portfolio, these are the basics of trading ETF derivatives. Once you feel comfortable with the foundations of options trading, only then should you consider more intermediate or complex trading strategies like straddles and volatility arbitrage. Crawl before you walk.
