Why CandleStick Wicks Are So Important! ❗✅

Why CandleStick Wicks Are So Important. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Candlesticks.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Candlestick Trading: What Do Wicks Tell Us? So Candlestick Charts but also bar charts; anything where we're taking information about the high, low, the open and close of the day. What is a wick and why are wicks important? A wick is basically the point of the candle which is showing us the high or the low. Wicks are one of the things that have bene the most profitable type of pattern for me over the years (although of course I don't only trade wicks). When we see wicks, wicks generally are telling about intraday changes in sentiment. We are talking about daily charts here but these also work in 5 minutes or 15 minutes timeframes. But let's talking about daily for now. Wicks are telling us of changes in sentiment on an intraday basis. i.e. it means there is a supply/demand shift in the middle of the day. It means there is an urgency there within a narrow timeframe. If we're buying a pullback we are still looking for that shift in supply/demand imbalance, if we're selling a resistance level we're looking for that shift from demand to supply coming in...etc What causes them? 1) News 2) Sentiment - people could have simply changed their perception of the market. We can have massive bodies and massive wicks. The most important things we want to see are volume on the day, a key level that is broken or some kind of news catalyst. That is interesting as it means people are changing their perception.

Best Technical Indicator for Day Trading? 👊
 
07:41
What is the best indicator for day trading? PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Best indicator for intraday trading? Is it moving averages, stochastics, RSI...? This is my opinion of course and I will select just one indicator. For me it is the VWAP - volume weight average price. I think this is the best indicator for day trading. The VWAP is like a moving average but it is based on the volume traded. A regular moving average doesn't take into account the volume. But if there is more volume done at a specific price level we need to give it more weighting... Why is it the best indicator for day trading? On a trending day you are likely to get a trending VWAP... assuming a strong uptrend day as price starts to come down the very first touch (test) of the VWAP you will get a bounce. In other words it acts as support in an uptrend and the reason for this is that many algos are looking at this and this is considered a value area. I've made some good trades basing myself on this. Another way to use VWAP - if a market is swing trading the VWAP will look a bit like a straight line. What you can do is to market the distance between the high and the VWAP - very often if we are in a rotation environment we can do 75 pips to the downside... I don't know exactly why but I suspect its again these mean reversion algos.

Best Trading Strategy if You Have a Small Trading Account / Low Capital? 😐😉

★ How to Trade with a Small Trading Account! ★ Trade at InterTrader http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/intertrader/intertrader.html ★ If you found value in watching this video, PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can do more! Trade Sensibly: Spreadbets/CFDs/forex trading is high risk! How can you trade/invest efficiently with with low capital? What's the best trading strategy for people with low capital? If you only have GBP250 or USD300, what's the best strategy going forward? This is a very common problem; in a perfect world you have a large amount of capital to trade but fortunately these days most online brokers also accommodate small traders. But what's the best way to use this money to learn to trade? The worst you can do is to utilise as much leverage as you can and trade with the biggest trade size possible. You might have a run of good trades but on average you won't last more than 10 trades. You might double or triple your money and then lose it all or you'll lose it straightaway. That is pure gambling. What you want to do is to make the money last as long as possible to help you learn the most. How do you get the best returns in terms of education? First open an account with a broker that allows you to trade with GBP250. You want to trade a strategy that has a long time to play out. Even though I'm a day trader and I love day trading I wouldn't day trade if I were limited to a very small balance. I would look at swing trading, holding positions for multiple weeks or months and I would trade the smallest size possible. And this is what you want to do - you want to trade with real money as that means you have some skin in it and there's some meaning to your trading.

How to Calculate Position Sizing & Risk Per Trade - Any Trade, Any Market ✔️
 
06:40
A Trader's Guide to Position Sizing http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Trade-risk-size.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Most traders want to trade in bigger size and make more money but care has to be taken. If you have GBP10,000 of capital, if you risk 2% then you risk GBP200 per trade. If your stop loss is 50 pips then you can trade at GBP4 [GBP200 divided by 50] per point. Always work from the market conditions at the time and don't decide the stake/trade amount before working out the stop loss. If you use a tighter stop you could be simply increasing the risk as there's more likelihood that your stop would be taken out. N.B: Always work back from your stop, not the other way round.

How to Use Multiple Time Frame Analysis to Find Better Entry and Exit Points 📈

What is Multi TimeFrame Analysis? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! You might have heard of it, you might have not heard about it - what is timeframe analysis and how can we use it to become better traders. How To Perform A Multiple Time Frame Analysis Multi Timeframe analysis means that we don't limit ourselves to one time frame to place a trade. We check the next higher time frame so as to gain a better perspective on the prevailing trend and then utilise the lower time frame to make our entry. It basically means taking a top-down approach based on the timeframe we're trading. We can start with a daily chart and we look at that chart. Is it an uptrend or downtrend? Where are the key levels - what is the structure of the chart? Then we step down to a lower timeframe. You could even go down to a 4-hourly chart and then you do the same thing. You're going down and you're analysing the chart as you go down. What is the point of that? We're doing that because we're trying to find something that fits the criteria on every timeframe. This helps us not lose sight of the bigger picture. A short that might look great on a 15 minute chart might not look so great on a 4 hourly chart if the wider market is in bullish territory.

Journals are great - notes about how you came to the decision to take the trade. - Take a break after a big win or loss. - Trade less.

Examine yourself and your trading. - Help other traders and share experiences. Helping other people is going to help you think about your trading as well.

4 Continuation Chart Patterns You Should Know 💹

4 Continuation Chart Patterns You Should Know As a New Trader. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! If you're new to trading this is the kind of stuff that is well worth learning. 4 Continuation Chart Patterns You Should Know. Reversals happens when a market is pushing up and its going to turn away. A Continuation is when a market is pushing up and it will form a pattern to suggest that there will be a continuation of that move. 1) Rectangles - a rectangle is a continuation pattern in that it confirms that the underlying trend is likely to continue. This is a broad kind of move where you've got a nice push higher which forms a rectangle kind of pattern. It is basically an acceptance of price at a new level after the price has moved up. 2) Wedges - Wedges are another type of continuation pattern. This is when we have a push up and then we have price converging to a narrow point. A bullish wedge will form in an uptrend, as the price trades inside converging trendlines. The converging trendlines are a sign that sellers are attempting to push the price lower but failing due to buyers coming in. In the end the buyers take control and the price breaks thru the upper trend line, indicating a resumption of the uptrend. 3) Flags - you have a rectangle of price formed after you've had a drive up in price. 4) Triangle - similar kind of thing but its broader. Ascending triangles have a flat upper trend line while descending triangles have a flat lower trend line Trading the Rising and Falling Wedge Patterns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKKX2lBr4DE How to Trade the Ascending or Rising Wedge Chart Pattern https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5f1oa9jkaOE How to Trade the Descending or Falling Wedge 💡 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYQASgotWKM How to Spot the Bull Flag Continuation Pattern 🏯 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuheIquENgk How to Trade a Bearish Flag Pattern like a Pro 👍 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFtr50Dp3pA How to Trade Bullish Flag Patterns like a Pro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sch9cXNi-hg How to Trade the Ascending and Descending Triangle Chart Patterns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVE2JUOqhYM How to Trade Symmetrical Triangles like a Pro 💡 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qOlycyxT48 How the Pro's Trade Descending Triangle Chart Pattern 👍 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7_biTmoVxw Best Trend Trading Setups!

Waiting for confirmation might be killing your gains. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! It is possible that waiting for confirmation will kill your gains. Why? Because there are different market environments which require you to take different actions. Why Confirmation Price Action Signals Crush Trading Success 1) Range Bound Market - you are looking for a long at support for a rebound back to your profit target. Confirmation to see that buyers have stepped in is generally a good idea here. 2) You are looking to go short on a weak market; continuation of the downtrend. If you wait too much for confirmation of the downtrend you will end up being too late to take the trend. Analyse your trading strategy and check whether waiting for confirmation isn't unnecessarily hindering you. The way to check this is to look at your journal and see if you're chasing a lot of moves.

08:48
Are you trying to predict the market too much http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/Predict-market-direction.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This is a bit one - too many traders are trying to predict what is going to happen next. But no one really knows where the market is going. There are a multitude of variables changing all the time. Just consider the evidence. Even the brightest professors or the most powerful computers struggle to predict the market direction. We see automated algorithms getting it right for a while and then they stop working. Is it skill or luck? No one knows when the market will move. Let's suppose you predict that a stock is going to double but it halves first. Unless you are an investor sitting thru all that - it is no good for us traders. Prediction = Disappointment. If you make a prediction and get it right you will believe that you can predict the market and then you get a sequence of losses. Or you make an initial prediction and keep getting it wrong. Trading is about having a good risk:reward ratio and a better than 50% chance of success. You need to have some edge in there. You are not predicting; you are just looking where the risk:reward ratio is favourable.

Trading without Stop Losses. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! No Stop Forex Trading? No Stop Loss Forex Trading Strategy. Why some tradres quit using stop loss orders and why many professionals don't use stops. Trade without stoploss, think out of the box, can you? The Arguments for not using a stop loss... We probably know that stops loss orders are very useful for risk management. We talked about the best ways to place them, how far away they should be, how we structure them...etc But what about not using a stop loss at all? Am I recommending this? Not necessarily but I wanted to discuss it 1) Probability of touch and probability of close. The probability of touch is twice the probability of close. 2) Markets go stop hunting. There is a general liquidity hunt in the markets and this happens. 3) You can never be perfect. We can rarely be perfect with our entries - it may be more dynamic than just buying, stop and out. 4) You can control risk with trade size. If no position is going to damage you regardless of the outcome, perhaps you are better off not using stops. 5) Many professionals don't use stops - they are always evaluating as opposed to utilising stops.

Accumulation or accumulating stock - what exactly does it mean. In the context of a chart or a market it means that the market or a stock is basing. Long positions are built with no upward stock move. Its a kind of equilibrium point; buyers are potentially accumulating longs at a certain price and sellers aren't becoming so aggressive that it is being pushed back thru the lows. So how can we use accumulation as traders? One obvious way to trade the range independently; shorting highs and buying lows. But there's also another way...

A Simple Moving Average Strategy - 9/30 Trading Setup 🎯

9/30 Period Moving Average Trade. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! So we have the EUR/USD, 60 minute chart although this strategy could also be played on stocks. I have a 30 period weighted moving average and I have a 9 period exponential moving average. The filter for the trade is that we have to have the 9 above the 30 for a long trade or the 9 below the 30 for a short trade. As with these kind of indicators its about different ways to get onboard a trend; we are looking for things to quantify and finally pull the trigger. We are looking for the first bar that closes below that 9 period exponential moving average and we are going long and vice versa for the short side. It is interesting that we are using the weighted and exponential to give you that bit of a wider spread between the two. How can we improve this? Perhaps a better filter might be helpful.; perhaps the ADX?

10 PIPs a Day Forex Scalping Strategy 🔨

★ 10 PIPs a Day Forex Scalping Strategy ★ Recommended Brokers http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/spreadbetting/compare-spreads.html ★ If you found value in watching this video, PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can do more! 10 PIPs a Day Forex Scalping Strategy. Scalping is a seriously tricky business; your risk:reward ratio is likely to be close to 1:1; the idea is that you are going to have a higher probability of success with each trade you take as opposed to getting the edge from the risk:reward ratio. That means you have to be ultra-disciplined with your stops and exits. Trade this on a 5-minute chart and limit yourself to major forex pairs where your spreads are relatively small. I have two indicators set on the screen; one is the Bollinger Bands set to 20 period (moving average is 20), 2 standard deviations with offset being set to 0. The other indicator is slow Stochastics; percentage K is set at 5, percentage D set at 3 and Smoothing set at 3. The rules are these (taking a short example first). You want to look into taking a short trade when price is above the upper Bollinger Band and the Stochastics are overbought. Then, when you get the next red candle you then take a short on the close of that candle. You put in a 10-pip stop with a 10-pip target. This is supposed to be a trading strategy where the probabiliy of success is good so the risk:reward ratio doesn't need to be high.

4 Rules for Scaling into a Trade. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/adding-winning-positions.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! How to Scale In to Positions. Scaling into a trade; what is it and what are my 4 golden rules for doing it? I like scaling into positions but I also like scaling out of trades. The benefit of scaling into a trade is that when you know you have a good opportunity to take a trade; you either go all in at a particular price in which case you need to have a stop point due to risk management and sometimes that's the right way to go OR you can scale into a trade and we'll explain the process of scaling into trades in this video. How to Scale Into Winning Trades: 1) Define your zone - this is the area where you're still keen on buying that stock or forex pair or index..etc 2) Plan your sizing. You either do standard same position sizing all the way down or you do a variation of that perhaps start big at the beginning and smaller size towards the end or vice-versa. 3) Ignore price behaviour. I've struggled with this a lot especially with day trading. When I scaled in I would be so focused on my price behaviour that I would try to second guess the next scale. You just have to be committed to your trading plan. 4) Be strict with your stop. This is another big one because things can get nasty quickly when scaling in. Do you scale into a position when trading, if so, how do you decide how much to scale at each entry?

What's the most important information for a short term trader? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! So you're day trading... What are the secrets in day trading in the stock market? When you're short term trading you are trying to make decisions on the future direction of a market over a short-time frame - that could minutes, hours, end of the day..etc . There are two things we need to pay attention to when day trading. The Prior Action - as a trader we need to identify what is important. What happened 5 days ago is irrelevant for a very short-term trader - what is relevant what's happened say, yesterday. What is relevant here is the high and low of the prior day and the support and resistance levels.

Trading Breakouts: 5 Situations Where You Shouldn't be Buying a Breakout ❌
 
08:59
Failed Breakouts - What Are The Signs? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/trading-breakouts.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! 5 Scenarios when a breakout is unlikely to work. There are many traders who like trading breakouts and the payoff when you get it right can be truly great. However, breakouts setups don't always work. I'm going to review 5 scenarios when I consider a breakout is much less likely to work. Is That A False Breakout? Here Are Some Clues. 1) When price is still in a range. I try to filter out breakouts like this because if a range is in a bigger range there is less chance of it being a genuine breakout. 2) When solid resistance is close because there is a good chance that the market might stop there. Of course if there are aggressive movements or a catalyst I might consider this on a case-by-case basis but generally I avoid such setups. 3) When news/data is due - if we have say, non-farm payrolls numbers coming up I'm unlikely to take a breakout trade before that because I know that the majority of people are going to position themselves aggressively after the announcement. 4) When price is greater than ATR (day traders). If we're day trading a market and we are outside the normal parameters I'm more careful about buying breakouts. 5) Known quiet periods - from a day trading perspective this could be lunch times for instance. There is no volume coming in... Related Videos (these are just of the videos we created on breakouts - for more just use the search function on this channel!)

How Nick Leeson Brought Down Barings Bank 😮

How Nick Leeson Brought Down Barings Bank http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/strategies-tips.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE Nick Leeson was a manager with England's Barings Bank but his downfall came while heading up the bank's Singapore division in the early 1990s. How Nick Leeson Brought down Barings Bank and what we can learn from this. Let's see what lessons we can learn from 'rogue trader' Nick Leeson because most of the psychology is the same. Nick was a directional trader betting on the future direction of the Nikkei. In 1993 he made GBP10 million in bonuses. At the time the trading was done in the pits and there was plenty of room for errors. Errors were normally put in special accounts. At one time Nick used these 'error' accounts to cover up an employee error - apparently this error was big enough to get this guy fired. In 1994 Nick Leeson was down hundreds of millions and he kept this in the 'error' accounts. Nick then started to trade in bigger sizes to trade himself out of the loss. As we know trying to trade to recover losses or trading on hope is generally a bad idea. Ultimately he was heavily long on the Nikkei hoping for a recovery and the market started moving heavily against him. At one point he was long $7 billion notional of Nikkei futures and he ended losing GBP862 million!

These are warning signs that you will fail as a trader. Why Most Traders Fail to Make it to Profitability These are some things we need to look at if we want to be successful in the long run. We need to be brutally honest with ourselves if we want to improve our trading; first starting by turning from losing traders to profitable traders and from profitable - small increments of improvements towards even better trading throughout our trading career. 5 Biggest Reasons Why Most Traders Fail 1) You kid yourself that you are a great trader. You need to be very humble in this business. In the end you need to put in the time and effort; it takes time to become a great trader. 2) Don't listen to any countertrader argument. You need to be careful about this because you need to have conviction in your trades. 3) Your profits and losses swing wildly. 4) Your big winners are from lucky trades with size. 5) You won't seek help from others.

The 10 Pips Scalping Strategy for Currency Traders. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/forex/forex-trading.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This is a trading strategy for scalpers, not for swing traders. You can try it out and see if it fits with your style of trading and personality. And perhaps you can find ways to tweak it into ways where it works for you. This is on a one-minute chart; it might work on USD/JPY or GBP/USD. The whole point of this strategy is that we're looking for a 10 pips final target so the market has to be reasonably active. We are looking to trade extreme oscillations on a very short-term basis. The key with any scalping strategy is to be brutally disciplined with your exit. Rules; 1) Short when RSI is greater than 90 2) Long when RSI is less than 10 3) Enter on cross 4) Target = 10 pips 5) Stop = 10 pips or prior extreme The idea of this is that price is stretching in one direction very short-term (indicated by the RSI overbought/RSI oversold condition), starting to roll a bit and then we'll hitting it immediately. If we're wrong we get immediately out.

To make more money from small market movements you normally have to trade in bigger size. 5) Are you comfortable with risk?

How To Trade When You Are Afraid of Losing Money: Overcoming Performance Anxiety in Trading 💪
 
09:02
Performance Anxiety in Trading. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Lose-money.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! How to trade when you are afraid of losing money? [trading anxiety, trading stress, trading pressure, pressure to perform, position sizing, nervous] You are coming to a certain point in time in trading - that could be a market open, key data release (say Non-Farm Payrolls), perhaps earnings release on a stock..etc As you are approaching this date something is changing internally in your body that is making you behave differently. Some is almost making you perceive this as a dangerous scenario. As traders we want to be alert enough to be able to perform at the right level. Performance anxiety is on the other hand when we have too much stress; we are going into the open with too much worry about the outcome of that individual trade. That is a bad thing; if we put too much weight on any individual trade then luck comes into play. We want to have the law of numbers to work on our side. So we need to find a way of not being concerned about the loss because if you're worried about mindsets that puts you in a terrible frame of mind. This comes down to position sizing. Also, if you're trading a market that is too volatile then back off or again reduce the position size and widen the stops. A good trading plan has a good risk management structure.

You've done your analysis - now wait! http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Give yourself time to learn, time for experience, and time to wait for opportunities... Don't trade more often if you want to make more profits! Stick to your analysis and trading plan! Once you've done your analysis, many of us struggle with the patience to wait for a trading setup and we sometimes we end up jumping the gun. If we just buy randomly we're just gambling and that is ultimately a losing game in the long run. Many of us unfortunately itch for taking a new trade. This is why we do it - we should aim to structure our trades better both in terms of risk-reward and position size. For instance risking 20 pips to make a 100 pips is much better than a 1:1 risk reward ratio. Ultimately, we're playing the game of odds and consistency and keep trading with the edge on our side knowing that over time it is going to work for us.

Stop Moving Your Stop Loss to Breakeven / Profit TOO Soon! What's the Solution? ☝
 
10:58
Moving Stops to Breakeven/Risk Free Trade? Don't do it too soon! http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Should you even set your trades to breakeven? If you do this too aggressively you will end up hurting your own performance. You will end up missing not just losers but also lots of big winners. The problem can arise during drawdowns - you start trading too defensively... even scared. This hinders getting back on track. Quit moving your stop loss (to breakeven) too soon. Let's discuss risk-reward and trade management. So is moving a stop loss to breakeven always a bad idea? Hopefully when you place a trade you have some kind of target profit and stop loss linked with the trade. If a trade moves into profit some traders will jump the gun and move the stop loss immediately and tighten it up (to breakeven) because they don't want to lose that profit. Psychologically I understand why people do this but you need to keep some leeway breathing space in the markets. You are not allowing for the noise in the markets i.e. not allowing the market to oscillating before resuming their trend. In real market conditions we rarely get moves that go from entry to exit in a straight line! You have more instances where the market puts you in doubt whether the trade is really moving in your direction and whether you have more potential opportunity for profit. But if you want multiple times your stake you need to allow the market space for movement. Of course i'm in favour of protecting capital and not giving profits back. So what's the solution? Two ways is using ATR or scaling out or pyramiding..

8 Common Mindset Errors Traders Make http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/strategies-tips.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! the main reason most traders fail isn't because of the strategy but because we can't overcame many of the mindset hurdles that make trading so challenging. 1) Beliefs about market direction - leave the beliefs to talking heads on Bloomberg - you are a trader. For about beliefs - you are just looking for good trades. 2) Increasing position size aggressively. I've done this myself and got smacked down on the face several times due to this. 3) Chasing the trade when you have no good risk/reward. We want to get onboard trades but not at any cost. If you can't have a good entry then you have no business being in the trade. 4) No plan - this is a big one. Trading with no plan is no good. You need at least a basic plan - have some risk management in place! 5) Ignoring the trading plan - due to fear of loss you don't close trades because you don't want to crystallise the loss. 6) Being wrong and letting ego keep you wrong. 7) Jumping in with no defined setup. 8) Seeking other people's opinion.

Dirty Strategies in Algorithmic Trading: Momentum Ignition Strategy ⛏️

Momentum Ignition Strategy http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Understanding the Momentum Ignition Strategy that some HFT and Hedge Funds/Quants use. What is a Momentum Ignition Algo? We have those algos out there which are really abusive algos and operate on the verge of illegality in the eyes of the SEC But what is the Momentum Ignition Algorithm? Momentum Ignition Algorithm is a trading algorithm that attempts to encourage other participants to trade quickly causing a rapid price move. This algo will either go out there and spike price quickly in one direction over a certain level (we've seen retail versions of that in terms of stop hunting) or a burst of volume in one direction. Basically they're doing something that is going to induce other participants to trade off the back of that move. The way they profit from that is to be either pre-positioned (they already bought and create momentum on which they could sell) or they're going to fade that and trade a mean reversion trade. So they're kind of trying to spoof other algos to participate. Keep in mind that some high frequency trading (HFT) will utilise momentum ignition to spark the 'handle', other algorithmic trading companies may be in the hunt for such 'ignition' to handle from behind.

The Quarters Theory in Forex Trading 🌛
 
07:27
The Quarters Theory in FX Trading http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/forex/forex-trading.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This theory goes back many years ago and the idea is a good, solid one. It is similar to the whole number theory... The Quarters Theory Based Trading System The theory behind this is that prices move in a structured way between two points and those two points are a thousand pips apart. We then break it into quarters, each quarter is 250 pips so what we are doing is basically framing or splitting up the move into quarters. The theory is that the price will move from one large quarter to another large quarter in 250 pips increments steady between it. Can you structure a trade idea behind it? Perhaps not but you can frame your trade and use it as a target... This may not be the most revolutionary thing ever, but sometimes the simple things work best. Also, psychologically a lot of traders are watching these quarters and you can use this to your advantage.

Wolfe Wave Trading Strategy 🐺

Wolfe Wave Trading Strategy. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! What is the Wolfe Wave? Wolfe Waves and How to Identify Them. So first, how does the Wolfe Wave pattern look like? The pattern is made up of 5 waves showing supply and demand and a fight towards an equilibrium price. Wolfe wave patterns can happen in different timeframes, starting from 1 minute up to monthly charts and can help: 1) predict where price is heading 2) when it will get there. Rules & Structure Of Wolfe The Wave Pattern Commonly a Wolfe Wave will form: - channels in an uptrend (where we look for a bearish Wolfe Wave) - and channels in a downtrend (look for bullish Wolfe Wave) - as well as on horizontal channels when price is consolidating. To be regarded as a wolfe wave, the following criteria must be met: 1) Waves 3-4 must remain within the channel created by 1-2 2) Wave 1-2 equals waves 3-4 (displays symmetry) 3) Wave 4 is within the channel created by waves 1-2 4) There is regular time between all waves 5) Wave 5 exceeds trendline created by waves 1 and 3 and is the entry point How To Trade Wolfe Waves Price has moved up; it is now forming an up-sloping channel. You have a parallel trendline. The lines formed by 1, 3, 2 and 4 (the trend lines that you draw) must stay in 1 and 2. i.e. price has to stay within the channel. This pattern is all about symmetry, symmetry in price differences and movements, there is also symmetry in regular time between the waves. You don't want something that takes ages for the next wave to begin. A wolfe wave trading pattern can either be bullish or bearish. It signals that supply/demand has shifted but it fails to make new highs. This pattern generally works on a daily timeframe but you can try adjusting it on a 4 hour timeframe.

ESMA Toughens Margin Rules on CFDs & Forex Trading 🚨
 
10:34
What do the new ESMA margin rules mean for your trading? PLEASE LIKE THIS VIDEO IF YOU FOUND IT USEFUL. IT HELPS A LOT. These ESMA rules come into effect on the 28th July 2018. The main ones are going to be the margin requirements; i.e. the leverage you can utilise when you're trading. At the moment it is pretty much the Wild West when it comes to forex; some brokers offer crazy amounts of leverage like 500:1, other brokers offer more conservative leverage rates like 200:1, 100:1 or even 50:1. In other words how much money do you need to have in your trading account to control a specific position size? If you have 1 lot of EUR/USD, say EUR10,000 - how much is that going to cost you in terms of margin? In the past this could be as little as GBP100 or as much as GBP1000 or more. These rules will broadly make brokes who are regulated in the European Union adhere to the same rules. - Margins will be fixed at 30:1 for the major currency pairs containing any two of the following: USD, EUR, JPY, GBP, CAD, CHF - Minor FX - all other currency pairs margins will be 20:1 - Major indices - UK 100, Wall Street, Germany 30, US 500, US Tech 100, EU stocks, France 40, Japan 225, Australia 200, US Dollar Index - margins will be 20:1. This is going to have a big impact on many people. - Minor Indices - all other indices margins will be 10:1 - Gold, 20:1 - Commodities, Oil and Silver - 10:1. That means no more big positions unless you have the margin to back it up. - Shares, 5:1. In the past European brokers would allow more flexibility on the bigger stocks. No more - the maximum will be fixed at 5:1 - Crypto, 2:1. Not really surprising considering the volatility but still quite harsh. Margin Changes Example Market - STAKE - PRICE - Margin Required (pre 28th July 2018) - Margin Required (from 28th July 2018) - Extra Margin Required (from 28th July 2018) EURUSD 1 1.17913 £58.96 £392.65 7x USDCHF 1 0.9839 £98.39 £327.93 7x GOLD 1 1298.50 £129.73 £648.65 5x UK100 1 7715 £38.58 £385.75 10x CRUDE OIL 1 66.50 £65.17 £651.17 10x BARCLAYS 1 215.25 £10.76 £43.04 4x APPLE 1 185.60 £928.00 £3712 4x BITCOIN 1 6985 £139.70 £349.25 2.5x The other thing is the 50% margin close out. If the total margin in an account falls more than 50% of the initial margin amount required to open the CFD position, the provider must close one or more of the CFD positions. Let's see an example. Let's say a client opens a trading account with a Forex broker, depositing EUR500 in totoal. The trader decides to open a short trade in EUR/USD, by going short 5 mini-lots (one tenth of a full lot). One full lot of EUR/USD is equivalent to €10,000, meaning 5 mini-lots are worth €5,000. Minimum margin required to open this trade: €5,000 divided by the new margin requirement (30) = EUR166.66 This is the minimum required margin to maintain the trade. Half of that amount is EUR83.33. Let's suppose the trade goes against the client, with the price of EUR/USD continuing to rise well above the entry price. If the price rises enough to net a floating loss of EUR416.67 [EUR500 - EUR83.33], the broker has to close that trade out even if the trade doesn't have a stop loss or has not yet reached the stop loss level. In theory, this means that a client’s account can never reach zero. Examples involving multiple open trades will be more complex, but will operate according to the same principles.

7 Things Only Traders Do! http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/strategies-tips.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This is a bit on the lighter side of things... Lifestyle of a Trader: 7 Things Only Traders Do! 1) Talk in ticker codes 2) Assess everything in Risk vs Reward 3) Scan retail stores for sales/footfall 4) Secretly chuckle when you see a market ticker 5) Use trader terminology in everyday life. I'll hit the bid on this one; I'll lift the offer. I don't think I'm going to go long on that... 6) Link markets to people - a guy cuts you out in traffic and you say something relating to the markets, bet you lost a bundle..etc 7) Getting unnecessarily excited when you see a registration plate with an FX pair.

Using the ATR to Help You Stop Chasing Entries 📈

Using the ATR to Help You Stop Chasing Entries http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! How can the ATR (Average True Range) improve our trading? How do we use ATR to help us stop chasing entries? This is a bizarre thing; ATR is useful for placement and positioning of stops and reducing or increasing our position size - it allows us to see on the fly what is going on...so how is it going to help us make better entries? Many of us will chase things; we will make use of market orders; we will see a position and we buy (especially if we're day trading but also impulsive swing traders). This rarely works well, it is always better to use limits. But what if instead of buying at market, you look at the ATR and you put an order one ATR under the market? Of course you'll have to tweak this depending on the strategy you're trading. If you're trading a momentum expansion strategy you might reduce that to half the ATR, if using a mean reversion strategy you could even widen the criteria.

Trading Using the Time and Sales: How to Read the Tape in Day Trading 💡
 
06:10
What is Time and Sales? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/trading/day-trading-course.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can do more! The time and sales could be utilized by different traders operating under different time frames although normally very short-term trades and scalpers put more emphasis on it. Some day traders will make use of the time and sales in isolation (i.e. basing all their decisions on it) while others will use the time and sales in conjunction with charts or the depth of the market. How to Predict Moves With "Time and Sales" Data ? If you're scalping or day trading you probably want to be involved with the time and sales. Most of us will be looking at the charts - we will see how the flow of the market is going whether this is a 1 minute, 1 hour or daily chart. But if you're going down the route of being a very active short-term trader you probably need to look further in the time and sales. You are basically seeing the trades that have gone thru in real-time; as trades go thru you are seeing the price of the trade and the volume of the trade (size of the transaction) and the time of the trade. This could be indices, commodities or anything in a stock exchange like stocks. The colour coding system generally means - has the trade been conducted on the bid or the ask? There is no buyer or seller; there is simply a trade taking place. If you're into scalping this is a useful window where you can get a little perspective into what's going on short-term.

Trend Trading Vs. Counter Trend Vs. Breakout Trading 📈 📉

Trend Trading Vs. Counter Trend Vs. Breakout Trading http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Matching the Chart Type to your Personality Type. 3 types of chart, which one are you? Are You a Trend Trader or a Swing Trader? We often talk about personality fitting a trading strategy so how about if we segment it down into 3 distinct chart patterns. 1) Trending - to be a good trend trader you have to see a market moving up, see it pullback and be very comfortable with being able to pull the trigger at a certain point. Some people aren't comfortable doing that including myself. I prefer more explosive type markets.. 2) Counter-trend - I like to trade this. We've got a market moving up, bit more volatile, bit more range between moves. You have to be comfortable hitting a short against the trending move. Again, some people are very uncomfortable doing this. 3) Breakout - you have a market that is range trading and you have to be comfortable buying a breakout. These are the 3 broad chart types; you have to see where you fit in with them. If you find which one you prefer then maybe you can focus your energy and resources to get really good at it.

If You See This Two Day Candlestick Pattern Pay Attention! ⚠️👌

If You See This Two Day Pattern Pay Attention http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! If you see this two day pattern you would do well to pay attention. We have a couple of days where the market pushed up and then we get a good, solid green day that breaks out of a key level. The point that this is important is that we need interest and people getting involved. the important thing here is that we smash the prior day's low; that's the key level being watched by market participants because the downtrend is likely to continue for a little while longer. Same with point 2 - we've gapped up on good volume, maybe on news and its looking bullish - the next day instead of taking the high the trend is reversed. Its an instant switch of supply/demand which confuses people and catches people out.

When Bottom Picking Works: How to Pick a Bottom! 🙂
 
08:22
How to Know if a Market May Have Bottomed http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! When Bottom Picking might work! Trend Trading versus Bottom Picking. Bottom picking in a trading perspective is when a market is pushing to lows and we buy assuming that it is the bottom of that move. Some experienced traders will tell you never to do it, others (including Paul Tudor Jones) will argue that they are very good at picking tops and bottoms and make money from it. Let's look at some cases when it may be a good idea to try picking a bottom. What we want to avoid are chugging downtrends - very difficult to pick a bottom in such instances as there is a persisting supply/demand imbalance there. Trading lesson: How to pick a bottom Let's see how we could filter out such opportunities to increase our chances of success. When it might be an idea to try picking a bottom is when a market is starting to range trade even if this may happen in a downtrend so you will still need to have your risk management in place. Another way to do it is to look for extreme flushes and this is where the ATR indicator can come in handy.

Buy Low, Sell High Strategy - But what is Low and High? 👇☝

Buy Low, Sell High - what does it mean? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! A Look at the Buy Low, Sell High Strategy. How do I buy low and sell high? Can you time the markets? Buy Low, Sell High - But what is Low and High? We've all heard this phrase; buy low, sell high - sounds great in principle if we do this everyday but how do we define 'low' and how do we define 'high'? Why? Because one investor's perception of the market and another person's perception of the market might be completely different. One guy might think a stock is a buy, another might think its a short! How do we know what's low and what's high? We can use good old fashioned support and resistance levels. By using support and resistance levels that have been reached a number of times in the past we are ultimately letting the market dictate to us what is low and what is high. High is defined as a level where the price has struggled in the past and low is also defined at a level where the price has struggled in the past to the downside. We can also have trendlines and channels so as to have dynamic support and resistance levels. Related Video: Why is Trading So Hard? Buy Low and Sell Higher.

When to Hold (& Run Winners) and When to Scalp Trades PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/strategies-tips.html Knowing when to hold and knowing when to scalp. This is actually for investors as well. By scalp I'm not referring to taking a few pips; I mean taking a small chunk out of the market. If you're day trading it could be 10 or 20 pips, if you're swing trading it could be 100 or 200 pips..etc as opposed to multiple thousand pips. This is a common battle for all of us - we want to hold the trade for as long as possible; we want it to pay us for taking this risk on, for being in the right trade at the right time but at the same we don't want the market to go all the way in our direction only to reverse back. I like to grade my trades in how likely they are to run on. And I like to decide this before actually placing the trade i.e. planning it in advance. Here are some ideas of things to look for in the market you're trading to put it in the Hold category or the Scalp category. How to Let Your Winners Run - Tips for Success Hold - Early in the move - Signs of a reversal - Fresh air - Market moving clearly - Prior evidence of extended moves - 'Obvious' target Scalp - Very sharp angle - Over ATR - Key levels nearby - Data/News coming up - Holiday - Time stop triggered Related Video How to Manage a Winning Trade 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUHt3zfd778

Double Stochastic Forex Trading Strategy ✌
 
07:50
The Double stochastic trading strategy. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/academy/forex-stochastics.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This is for forex (major pairs) but might also work on indices and very liquid stocks, we're looking at an hourly chart and is more of a day trading strategy. Stochastic Oscillator Trading Strategy Here we have AUD/USD on a 1 hour chart; I have two Stochastics on the screen as well as a 20 period exponential moving average. The first stochastic is set at percentage K - 21, percentage D - 4 with smoothing set at 10. The second stochastic is a bit quicker with percentage K - 5, percentage D - 2 and smoothing set at 2. So we have a slower stochastic (which is displayed on top here) and a faster stochastic. This means you are not relying on loads of different indicators which can work in certain conditions but can also easily confuse you. The slower stochastic is going to give you a broader overbought and oversold condition. The faster stochastic is much more sensitive so its going to trigger overbought and oversold by the little pullbacks over the broader moves.

Are you missing good setups? Do you have problems pulling the trigger on trades? Are you letting those good trades run away without you - are you not pulling the trigger? What is happening? How do you avoid missing the good trades? The first question to ask is why you're missing those good trades?
