Trade Idea – USD JPY Prints Strong Bullish Candle

USDJPY Prints a Strong 4 Hour Bullish Candle After failing to create a lower low on the 4H chart, USDJPY prints a strong candle just above the previous high.

Trade Idea – NZD USD – 02-17-2016

This is a follow-up to the Trade Idea - NZD USD - 02-12-2016 recently posted. The previous trade consisted on a sell limit placed after the third touch on the downward trend (see post picture above).

Trade Idea – EUR USD – 01-29-2016

Found a nice sell trade today, 01/29/2016, on the EUR/USD cross. The reason this trade was so appealing to me was because of the strong touches on the green line. Moreover, the pivot point (R2) met well with the trend line. I usually enter a trade like this for an easy 40 pips. In this case 47 pips. EUR/USD - Trend Trade This trade closed for a profit about 9 hours later. I adjusted the [...]

Missed Entry: Timing is Everything

I would love to be able to say that after 18 months of staring at charts and constantly checking my equity I have mastered forex trading, but the truth is that patience is not something forex will teach me.  Patience and discipline is what gets us up on time every morning and back from lunch on time. Patience and discipline in forex is about checking your charts at the correct times (according to your trading [...]

Forex Trend Trading: Just Basics

Although many traders consider forex trend trading elementary, it is essential for every trader to remember this forex fundamental. Every now and then as a forex trader, successful or not you will find that it is best to take a step back. After a 6-month spree of great trading, I have hit a wall. It is nice to think of forex trading, or any trading, as a never ending trend upwards but the reality is [...]
