FOREX INFO-TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE?

Post  commexfx broker on Thu Aug 21, 2014 3:56 pm


Every trader wants to conquer the world of trading and sit on the throne of FX!
And as much as it is advisable to learn all the basics to FX trading, you need to be able to filter and not over-saturate your brain with all the information out there. Too much information can actually be detrimental to succeed in trading.
There are a few factors which can bewitch you into thinking they are imperative to mastering FX trading, but in actual facts they should be avoided as much as possible.

News And Financial Media
The strongest weapon to influence the traders mind. If the news is negative so is the trader’s mind, if the news is positive so will be the trader’s mind. A positive mind will always perform better, as positiveness reflects in a trader’s strategy and investing decisions.
Don’t forget that main stream media is produced by people that are not traders nor investors; they are just journalists creating content to make news.
News trading can bring substantial profits to traders but it is a very difficult strategy to master, requiring much experience and knowledge; those with less knowledge are bound to make many mistakes when ‘trading the news’ resulting in substantial losses.

The addiction of Screen Watching
Being hooked to the screen 24/7 makes you into a ‘day trading gambler’ even if you don’t want it to. Imagine staring at 20 different charts a day, following the higher time frames and then the lower time frames, trying to decide whether to scalp 10 pips here or 5 pips there, leading to an addictive trading behaviour which results in the spontaneous placement of orders and trades, hoping that the next trade will bring profit and depending on luck! This will be disastrous and is indicative of the gambling behaviour we all spurn.

Too many strategies don’t work!!
With so many trading strategies available, so many ideas and philosophies, and educational webinars about FX trading around, a novice trader is spoilt for choice, but too much choice can be confusing and misleading.
A novice trader should not accumulate trading information from different sources and bundle them all together in his head, as they will lose all direction and defeat the object. A novice trader should choose a source carefully and only when that subject has been mastered should he leap into a new subject. FX knowledge requires patience and planning.

Greed-the force behind FX
Greed is the hunger of trading; the reason why people get involved in the FX markets. Even if a trader ventures into the world of FX trading for the sake of curiosity or simply because it is fashionable, trading is completely capable of bringing out the greedy side in all of us.
We are all capable of promising ourselves that ‘when I make so much etc., I will manage my risk better’ but that is never the case! We are humans and we are guilty of greed, so suddenly we see ourselves in the mindset of risking more than we can afford to lose, and that is where the danger begins. We lose control and the powerful mindset of trading overwhelms us.
Greed should never be the reason why you want to discover FX trading, it should be another reason, such as curiosity or simply an interest in this new industry.

Confidence conquers fear
A trader needs to trust himself and his trading strategy. He needs to be confident with every order he places, he needs to trust his own judgement when making trading decisions, and he needs to exert discipline in his own strategy. Other traders ‘opinions or stories should not count.

What methods are employed for currency forecasting and how is it related to currency trading forex spot rate?

Post  commexfx broker on Fri Aug 22, 2014 2:52 pm


The financial market has become popular due to its vitality and accessibility. But when it comes to trading in different currencies, traders and investors need to grasp the best methods for forecasting currency trading and forex spot rate.

Currency trading forex spot rate is the exchange rate of currencies being traded in the financial markets.

Different methods of currency forecasting

Currency forecasting is essential for determining the forex spot rate in the trading market. Below are the two main methods of currency forecasting:

Technical analysis: A traditional market like the stock market employs this particular method to determine the currency trends of the future. This method relies on price history to predict the future trends. Technical analysis comprises many different methods, which generally rely on the price movements of the past.
Fundamental analysis: taking into account different interest rates and economic reports, this method tries to draw its conclusion from numbers. This is a classic way of currency forecasting. It generally revolves around the fact that no matter what happens in the short tem, eventually all investments will have to follow economic numbers.
Apart from the above mentioned methods, traders follow some other techniques for forecasting the exchange rate:

Time Series Model: As part of the technical analysis process, this model focuses on past behavior and price patterns to determine the trends in future.This model requires data made from price patterns in chronological order
Relative Economic Strength Approach: According to this approach, a strong economic environment and high growth patterns of a country is likely to attract investors into its market. Hence, this method analyzes the growth patterns of different countries in order to forecast the forex spot rate.
Econometric Models: This method collects all different factors that the trader thinks are essential for determining the movement of a certain currency. This helps in creating an econometric model that is based on economic theory. But as the economy is based on different variables hence, the trader can add any factor that he thinks will influence the currency rate in the future.
Purchasing Power Parity (PPP): Owing to its inclusion in different text books, this method has become very popular in the financial market. This method is based on the principle of theoretical Law of One Price that states that identical goods should have one price per country. Hence, the forex spot rate will change according to the inflation in a particular country.
Relation between currency forecasting and forex spot rate

Determining the forex spot rate (exchange rate) is primary for every trading firm and market. Currency trading is all about future trends and patterns. So, it is imperative for every trader to determine the correct forex spot rate so as to reap profits in the future. If something goes wrong in currency forecasting, it would be difficult for the investor or trader to ensure better returns from the foreign market.

However, the co-relation between forecasting and exchange rate cannot be denoted in theory. There are numbers, figures, models, methods and analysis that determine their relation.

Currency trading and forex spot rate are the two most important pillars of the foreign exchange market. Their correct forecasting will determine correct results and huge profits in the future.

Interesting Facts to Know About Price Action Trading

Price action movement has been proved to be the new judge of market movements. It has been setting a trend in the volatile markets for quite some time. Markets are volatile; they change without warning and can catch you by surprise. Prices quoted also leap and change. There needs to be a mechanism which strikes an even balance between dynamic market conditions and changing prices. Price action is a technical analysis trendsetter which does exactly that; it allows you to feel the movement of the trade and feel its freedom.

These are the four main things you need to keep in mind with price action trading

Price action is not a theory based movement which needs memorizing

Many of you coming over to the ‘price camp’ might have been using a more rigid and rule based trading system than price action movement. All you need to do here is read a few good signals on the price chart. You just need to read the price chart from left to right. Then you are all set to go.

You can apply these signals over a week or over a month. If markets don’t have any significant movement for three days in a stretch, you don’t have to break your head over what is happening. All you need to do is just wait and watch for more action. Henceforth, you simply don’t have to memorize or summarize a set of norms or rules. You just need to have an open mind on rising and falling price signals that is about it.

Price Action is Universal

The pricing analysis is a direct proportional aspect to rising and falling trades. It is a universal aspect which has always worked and will work. The real time speculation happening way back in 1700’s used a similar kind of trading mechanism.

Just because it is stated, that the price action movement works, that simply doesn’t mean that every trade is a winning trade. Even successful traders lose out half of their trades or even more. They follow proper risk management procedures and have a refined sense of when to trade and when not to. This is how they make a lot of money over 90% of the losing traders.

Price action system is not something like gold bars

There are people who are convinced that trading will make them billionaires over night, but it really is not the case! One needs to understand the markets and trade steadily and surely, so that they can manage risk and exposure and even make some profitable trades!!

Similar way, you cannot blindly get caught in the glimpse of price action bars. These are not gold bars. You need to interpret the signals right and keep watching the market movements or trends. These trends keep repeating themselves over a point of time and you make winning trades here when you are fully aware of what you are doing.

Trading changes your overall outlook in life all together

Trading tests your patience like nothing else does. You know you have passed the test when after losing a number of trades, you still do not surrender to madness and anger; yet you remain cool and calm, and even consider carrying on trading. You maintain the same level of enthusiasm and curiosity in trading; losing a couple of trades does not deter you from placing more trades.

Euro (1.3202) has taken a big hit after the Jackson Hole meet as it trades around 1.32. With no sign of strength emergent, it definitely looks destined for our target of 1.31. Resistance at 1.3330-50 and support in 1.3250-25.

Dollar-Yen (104.18) is trading at a 7-month high but looks a bit overstretched now with a short term correction looking probable from 104.50-90. Interestingly,

Euro-Yen (137.55) has been rejected from the upper end of the 3-week range of 135.75-138. A successful break above 138 would signal a rally towards 139.00-25, even 140.

Pound (1.6559) has nearly reached our short term target of 1.6525-1.6470. But any attempt to bounce will face selling pressure from 1.6650-6700.

Aussie (0.9313) remains unchanged and keeps the range of 0.92-0.95 intact. Play the range as long as it remains unbroken with the median line at 0.9350-80.

Gold (1278.771) has bounced slightly from support near 1270 on the weekly and 3-day charts and while that holds we may see some more sessions on the positive side ranging in the 1270-1295 region. A break below 1270 if seen, could take it down to 1260-1250 in the longer term.

ONCE A DEMO ALWAYS A DEMO

Post  commexfx broker on Wed Aug 27, 2014 3:53 pm


Traders either loathe them or worship them, but, if the truth be told, demo accounts are used by brokers to entice traders to open live accounts.

Conventional wisdom suggests that demo accounts are a safe way to sample a risk-free trading environment, since we all know that plunging into the deep end and placing orders with no prior experience can result in a loss of large sums of money.

Demo accounts are supposed to combat inexperience and trading naivety, but do they?

The main factor of Demo accounts is that they do not trade with real money. This lack of risk would be considered an advantage in itself, but it does not make the trading experience realistic, it makes it emotionless, you don’t care if a position goes well or if you lose all your trading capital. There are no consequences for your actions, you don’t bother to learn from your mistakes and there is no disincentive to trade in a particular way. You don’t get to rationalize in real money – there’s no impetus to cut your losses and run on with your profits, nor is there any means of truly highlighting the riskier strategies from those that are more cautious. With a demo account, there’s no real accountability, which can and does hamper the trading experience.

Overconfidence, a detrimental factor- demo traders enter the financial markets with unrealistic balances in their account of up to $100,000, possibly an amount bigger than they would ever have in a live account. They will hold large losing positions which would be impossible to float on a live account with their own capital. This big amount of virtual money accessible to the demo trader is highly unrealistic; imagine if he only wants to trade a mini or a micro account? It will encourage the demo trader to take on riskier trades than he would normally do in a live account with real money, developing excessive risk trading into a habit which will be disastrous when the demo trader becomes a live trader!

Limitations of a demo account-their impact on trading strategy and style is actually much less than it could be. Demo accounts are often inherently limited, either in functionality or in the markets they represent. Market data is often delayed, as it is fed through the demo trading platforms/servers, eliminating much of the intricate features of trading, such as news announcements and live market events, this somehow prevents a demo trader from becoming an accomplished trader ready to take on the real world of FX trading!

Demo psychology-demo trading does not accurately reflect the true psychology of a live trader as trading with virtual money will not allow you to have the real gut feeling of making trading decisions on the spot and under extreme pressure that trading with your own hard earned money entails. With no real money at stake, the trader’s understanding of the underlying risk is actually limited or impaired. Alternatively, when you do trade on a live account, you can clearly see the need for discipline and risk management, elements which are not deemed necessary when trading with virtual money.

Conclusion-few will argue that a forex demo account can be undeniably useful in developing and mastering a certain trading strategy but unless the trader experiences the difficulty of making trading decisions involving real money and experiencing the pain of losing funds, he will not fully understand, much less avoid, the real risks of FX trading!

Top 5 factors which will impact your Trading performance

Post  commexfx broker on Thu Aug 28, 2014 4:18 pm

Trading is neither easy nor difficult; it is an art which requires continuous planning, setting and sticking to goals, persistent thinking and tons of discipline. The trick is to study the market movement, the highs and lows, and to know when to cut your losses and make a killing!

The following are 5 tips which you should incorporate in your everyday trading plan to reach the level of trading you wish to achieve.

They are:

Keep the thinking process simple

The more you trade the more risk you manage with your hard-earned money; and the more complicated it can become for you. Due to this, the trading strategy you employ must be disciplined and strict in a systematic way, enabling you to achieve certain professionalism in your trading.

The best advice is to invest only money you can afford to lose. So if you decide to invest $2000 , then bear in mind that you could lose this. Be smart; arm yourself with knowledge and tons of patience! Slowly and surely, study the market movement, place your trades and cut your losses as soon as you can. This way your approach to trading becomes a disciplined one. Whatever money you have earned during course of trading needs to be put back into the account itself. This way, you give a minimum lock in period for the capital base to grow.

Stick to major currencies

It is better you trade with two to four sets of currencies to discover the joy of trading, than sampling 40 different currencies which will only confuse you. If you trade with major forex currency pairs, the markets are more liquid and less volatile for you to succeed in maximizing your profits without too much risk.

Keep minimum number of trading steps

Keep a trading journal in front of you. And record the transactions which you perform on a daily basis. Make a track of losses which you could have avoided, had you applied alternative trading strategies.

Keep to three or four basic trading strategies and stick to these. If you include too many trading trends and ideas they can both drain you and confuse you. It is the quality and not the quality of trading principles which will eventually work in your favour..

Know your maximum dollar risk per trade, do not exceed

Ideally you would need to deposit at least $5000 in your live trading account to get exposure to big position sizes. The money you deposit needs to be utilized optimally. At the same time, avoid risking too much of capital. You need to evaluate how much money you are comfortable with losing out in one single trade. Once you have analyzed everything, follow a disciplined approach to leave losses to the comfort zone. Never exceed that particular amount on any given day. You can make your earnings better by minimizing your potential losses.

Price action movement

Price action is a technical analysis and is the simplest strategy which is recommended for beginners to learn. These are feel good signals of the market where you need to sell the currency. There is an indicator to buy currencies as well. Price action strategy is tried and tested and follows a scientific approach to trading. You can incorporate this in your daily trading plan.

Follow up these up and become a successful savvy trader from day one!

Exclusive Reasons for Having A Trading Plan Just Before Starting Off

Post  commexfx broker on Mon Sep 01, 2014 4:21 pm


Just before you start your college session, there are a couple of smart bees who decide how to manage the day. Forget about the strict timetable, the college notice board comes up with. You can prepare your own daily time-table to be incorporated after college hours. You can dedicate two hours of study in Math, in case you feel you are not so good at it. The next day off after study hours can include English. Likewise, when you have a dedicated time table, after-study hours, you are able to crack exams with a better level of confidence. The same thing holds good for excellent performance in trading.

You need to have a clear cut plan or objective just before you start of trading. This makes sure you don’t go off track and you remain accountable to whatever transactions you strike on the market. This ensures you follow trading with a scholastic as well as a disciplined approach. You can stick it up on your walls or near the fridge in the form of post chits or green cards so that the plan is clearly visible in front of you. An excel sheet can also be maintained on your laptop, configuring your trade losses, risk per trade lot and wins for the particular day. This makes sure you are able to gauge your own performance and know where you are heading at. Looking at charts and indices comes next.

The trading strategy contains the following

Define your entry strategy. Just jot down what will be the course of action, you would ideally take, if the markets are signaling downwards or experiencing reverse spins for most of the day. When the markets are completely dampened, it is better to stay idle than to put up with huge losses.
Determine your risk vs reward scenario. On any given situation, you need to know when to apply a stop loss to minimize risks and as far as winning trades are concerned, you need to exit markets for the day. You need to have the goal mentioned clear cut. This is so that you are not tempted to over trade or over leverage on your account.
You need to determine the exit strategy well in advance. When you are at it, i.e. The live trading domain, you are completely lost and lose out your self-written objectives. Better to get it written down on a note pad or trading journal book.
Never adjust stop loss to meet a desired position size. You need to be earnest in following up with business ethics. Earn money using your own merit and not by manipulations.
After the trade is over, play a game of solitaire or chess on your PC or otherwise. This relieves you from feelings of frustration, anger, disappointment or whatever emotional feelings that can put you back on the vicious cycle.
These 5 things determine a devised strategy before you start off live in the market.

Happy trading hours!

Euro keeps taking hits from various fronts like US data to the speculation that the QE from the ECB may come this week. The divergence between the US & Eurozone economies is getting more and more clearly reflected in the respective currencies.

Euro (1.3123) crashed exactly from our resistance at 1.3220 to reach our medium term target of 1.31. Now it is very close to the long term support zone of 1.3050-3000 though no sign of strength is visible. Let’s see if any short covering emerges from these levels.

Dollar-Yen (104.17) is close to hit a new 7-month high above 104.26 but still needs a break above 104.50 to gather bullish momentum for reaching higher levels. The grinding price action without any kind of directional move in Euro-Yen (136.69) actually shows the relative uniformity between Euro & Yen as both weakened simultaneously. The pair remains weak below 138 and the range of 136-138 may sustain for a few sessions more.

Pound (1.6596) is stuck within a very narrow range of 1.6540-1.6620 and even a break above 1.66 could not boost the pair. The downtrend remains firm and any bounce may face selling pressure from 1.6700-50 levels.

Aussie (0.9338) is testing the August high at 0.9375 levels but the lack of momentum doesn’t promise much more immediate upside. A failure to break above 0.9375 may drag it down towards 0.9280-50 levels once again.

Gold (1286.75) is trading lower after a short upward correction from 1271. We may see a rise towards 1300 before falling back to 1280 in the near term while the longer term remains bearish. Gold-WTI ratio (13.42) has fallen from resistance at 14 but may bounce back from 13.3-13.4 levels to target 14.5-15 levels.

Why Most Traders Fail In Forex Trading?

Post  commexfx broker on Wed Sep 03, 2014 7:02 pm


Making money through the equities is a pretty difficult task. Poor trading techniques, lack of confidence, patience and discipline can cause failure in the stock market. A trader is supposed to know the tricks of trading. Inefficient traders who lack foresight — risk all their money in one stock, without planning before investing. Planning is a must rule in the stock market. Complicated trading techniques and lack of planning will lead to the failure of the trader. Successful traders treat trading as their business and hence develop a plan.

Lazy Traders are sure to fail

Without substantial planning a trader is sure to fail. Few traders are too lazy to devise an effective trading plan. You need to do a little homework in order to come up with a functional plan. This requires a lot of effort and some traders are too lazy to do this. Lazy trading results in failure. For gaining success in the stock market, it is not just luck, but effort is also required. Overconfident, inefficient and lazy traders are always in a rush to try their luck — which results in disappointment.

Trading too much

The reason why most of the traders are plagued in Forex trading is that they are addicted to the stock market and invest too much. Greed is one of the seven vices that brings downfall. In an attempt to win more and more, greedy traders can lose a substantial amount of money. Good traders must not behave like gamblers — staking money in casinos. Trading in Forex is an art which is far superior than gambling at roulette.

Neglecting Demo trading

Demo trading is mandatory prior to real trading. Demo trading is just like stage rehearsals before a show. Overconfident, greedy and bad traders do not comprehend the importance of demo trading. Demo trading must be carried out for a substantial period of time in order to acquire a sound knowledge of market trends and trading techniques. All good traders bank upon demo trading. Demo trading gives you an idea about how you will perform in real trading. In 90% of the cases, it is found that one who is unable to make money in demo trading cannot make money in real trading either.

Use of complicated trading techniques

Complicated trading techniques will not land you anywhere. Trading methods have to be very comprehensive, easy to handle and functional. Trading strategies or systems need to be simple and effective. Easy trading techniques will bring big benefits in the long run. Successful traders master the art of disciplining — all by themselves. They are accountable and have a trading plan that is tangible. Simple strategies will surely bring consistent profits in the stock market.

Simplistic trading strategies will allow you to maintain simplicity in trading. Price action is the simplest trading technique that maintains simplicity in trading. Pondering over the complex strategies will only consume time without bringing any healthy profit. Trading with simplicity is an art which requires discipline, practice and patience. Trading off with simple prices will make one understand the economic scenario.

How professional traders need to think, in order to succeed?

Post  commexfx broker on Thu Sep 04, 2014 7:57 pm


Success in trading is a big mystery that needs to be unraveled. A professional trader knows how to be a successful trader for he thinks right. He knows what all should be made for success in trading. A professional trader is not driven by his impulses and acts in a matured way.

Professional Trading

A professional trader controls himself and not the market. He is not the chaser of trades and is very selective about trading. He is well versed with the art of trading strategies which he has himself mastered through experience. Professional traders are not reactive but they are anticipatory. They are advanced trade planners and have a preference for the markets they trade. The key levels are marked by them well and they wait in anticipation for the perfect signal. Professional traders are patient and well disciplined trade planners. They master the art of trading strategy and this equips them with the ability for anticipation and planning things out prior to trading. They are calmer, more balanced. Professional traders are not aggressive traders who would trade even at unfavorable times. They wait for the perfect moment to arrive and if that does not happen, they keep away from trading. Professional traders are not sentimental and emotional. They know the adverse effects of being emotional. Being overly-emotional is the gateway to disaster. In order to check their emotions they never ever exceed risk tolerance. They know very well how much loss they can bear. They are neither too happy with their wins nor too sad with losses. They know the fact that emotional upsurges are detrimental. They have all the conviction and confidence that is required for good trading.

Market Trends

A professional trader knows the market trends much more than an amateur. They can make educated guesses on what is going to happen in the market. Struggling traders generally involve themselves too much in their own trade by stops and targets. They frequently add to and reduce positions. Professional traders allow their trades to work things out for them. The fact is that the professional traders balance in their approach. They are manipulative, strive hard to master the trading strategies, examine their own trade moves. They are not driven by greed and their own impulses in any way. They do not allow the open trades to toy with their minds and emotions. They never exit before hitting the targets. They do not interfere with trade.

Trading Plans

Professional traders are largely successful since they are rational beings who think objectively. They are not driven by preset notions. They are good planners who plan everything prior to trading and execute their trading plans logically. They believe in themselves and have full faith in their judgments. Professional traders respect the market. They are more concerned about their risks than gains. This is what you need to cultivate within yourself as a successful trader. The victorious ones have healthy trading habits that result of proper planning and strategies. They are patient planners who plan everything beforehand. Professional traders have all the qualities of good traders. Effective management of money along with years of experience in trading make them successful traders.

Rule the Market By Means Of Confident Trading Approach

Post  commexfx broker on Fri Sep 05, 2014 4:51 pm


Confidence is the key to success. The Foreign Exchange Market is a decentralized market that is meant for trading currencies. It is the Forex that determines the value of currencies. The magnetic power of money has driven the investors to invest in stock markets. Earning money through equities is not an easy task. Huge amounts of researches and oodles of discipline, patience and confidence are required. You need to have a comprehensive idea of the market. Looking at the volatility of a market, the investors are in a constant dilemma whether to invest or not. As a result of market volatility, the investors lose faith in the stock market and shut themselves off from stock markets. Ideal investors must know how to handle this volatility with confidence. The world of the stock market is a competitive market requiring far sightedness and years of research. People who are not confident cannot survive through the ups and downs of the marketing trends.

Reflecting on the winnings

For efficient trading you need to be confident. Efficient trading habits help to build up confidence. In a way confidence and perfect trading habits are directly proportional. Low level of confidence can cause a dent in one’s trading performance. Reflecting on one’s own winnings can make one a winner. A winning trade can be used as a tool to invite further wins. It is mandatory to reflect on one’s own wins . It is necessary to ponder on the factors that lead to the win. Important factors must be jotted down in a trading journal to record the trading policies that triggered the win. Trading techniques must be learned by heart and this is only possible when one trades with small amounts. Trading skill if acquired will make one confident in trading.

Progress from smaller amounts to bigger amounts

If you are a budding investor, you are supposed to trade with small amounts of money to acquire the trading skill. Only then will it be possible to trade with bigger amounts. Trading skills, if acquired, will enable you to gain confidence.

Failures are the pillars of success

Losing trades are the best teachers that teach the trading skills. Disappointment after a losing trade must never be an obstacle in the path of successful trading. A simple losing trade must not be mixed with major failure. It must lead one to a series of winning trades. To make this possible one must reflect on the reason behind the loss. Proper record of the losing trade must be maintained in the trading journal so that the mistakes do not get repeated in near future. This is the only through which minuses can be converted into positives.

Act like a Super trader

Believing is doing. If one is confident enough to achieve success, then no one can stop him/her from winning. Acting like a matured trader is important. Brooding over one’s losses and wins is an absolute passé. A trader must move away from his computer after winning and losing trades .

EUR USD
The EUR declined 1.63% against the USD and closed at 1.2936, following the ECB’s unexpected decision to cut its benchmark interest rates and loosen monetary policy even further.

The ECB lowered its main lending rate to 0.05%, a record low from 0.15% and announced a new economic stimulus program that would involve purchase of covered bonds and asset-backed securities in October.

The greenback received a boost from mostly healthy US economic data which continued to reinforce expectations that an interest rate hike may be implemented sooner-than-expected.

The pair is expected to find support at 1.2851, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.2768. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.3086, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.3238.

Trading trends in the pair today are expected to be determined by the much critical 2Q GDP of the Euro-zone scheduled few hours from now, as well as unemployment rate and non-farm payrolls data from the US, slated to release later today

GBP USD
The GBP fell 0.87% against the USD and closed at 1.6320, after the BoE stuck to its current loose monetary policy, despite two policymakers voting for a rate hike at the last meeting.

The BoE’s Monetary Policy Committee kept the benchmark interest rates unchanged at a record low of 0.5%. It further maintained the total size of its bond portfolio untouched at £375 billion, following their September policy meeting.

The pair is expected to find support at 1.6243, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.6176. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.6422, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.6534.

Going forward, investors would pay attention to inflation expectations from the BoE, scheduled to be released today.

USD/JPY
The USD strengthened 0.52% against the JPY and closed at 105.39 amid prospects of higher US interest rates after US economic data continued to be encouraging.

Early morning data indicated that, in Japan, foreign exchange reserves surplus expanded to $1278.0 billion in August, following a surplus of $1276.0 billion recorded in the previous month.

The pair is expected to find support at 104.82, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 104.31. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 105.79, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 106.24.

Going forward, investors await the BoJ’s monthly survey, as well as the leading economic and coincident indices data, scheduled shortly.

USD/CHF
The USD rose 1.65% against the CHF and closed at 0.9327.

The pair is expected to find support at 0.922, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 0.9116. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 0.9382, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 0.944.

Trading trends in the Swiss Franc today would be determined by Swiss Q2 industrial production, set for release in a few hours.

Do You Really Have What It Takes to be a Forex Trader

Post  commexfx broker on Tue Sep 09, 2014 1:08 am

Do you possess the skills and the abilities required to be a successful trader? Abilities need to be developed by an aspiring trader. A lot of discipline and perseverance are required for earning money in the markets. You need to learn the art of losing like a professional trader. If you are not prepared to lose money by trading, then trading is not meant for you and you are not fit to be a forex trader. Losing is the part of winning, but lose the amount of money that you are comfortable with. Now how you can attain that losing mark which you can bear? This has some special trick working behind it. Effective risk management is the key behind ensuring that losing amount you are comfortable with. In order to detect whether you are meant for trading or you are simply wasting your time in the markets the following aspects have to be considered:

1. Are you prepared to lose?
This is the one question you need to ask yourself. If you are prepared to lose, then the next thing that needs to be done is figure out the way to deal with those losses. You need to integrate the losses into the trading plan. Then again, you need to ask whether you know the art of risk management in order to make sure that you lose the amount you are comfortable losing. Manage your risks well and trade less frequently to pass for a forex trader.

2. Do you have the patience required for being a forex trader?
A successful forex trader wins over the temptation for trading by patience and discipline. Ponder over whether you have the patience or you lack it. Money should not be lost foolishly as it is a limited resource. Restrict yourself from over trading as it is hazardous for both professional and an amateur trader. Wait for your trading edge and favorable market situation. Wait for the trade setup that has been predefined in the trading plan.

3. Do you know the art of controlling your emotion?
If you are crying like a one-year-old baby after a trade loss then simply quit trading. Trading is not meant for the ones who are emotionally weak. Trading is not at all for those who are constantly wallowing and fluttering in the market without any good reason. If you cannot check your tears on losing then you should have better monitored your trading actions prior to trading. Trading is the test of self-control. Control your trading actions and stop being over emotional over a loss if you want to pass for a professional forex trader.


4. Have you mastered the trading strategy?
Not risking more is a healthy sign, but a little healthier is not overindulging in the market by mastering the trading strategy. Trading strategy, trading plan and trading journal must all be mastered to the fullest.


5. Are you a disciplined trader or a gambler?
If you’re trading in a disciplined and self restrictive manner, then trading is for you. Organization and discipline are indispensable part of good trading. Do not succumb to the temptations. Trade only when you have your edge. Some traders trade under compulsion and incur significant losses. To avoid this refer, to the price action plan and apply your trading strategies as well.
If you want to examine your effectiveness as an efficient trader then go for demo trading. This will give you a crystal clear idea of where you stand as a trader.

Post  commexfx broker on Tue Sep 09, 2014 7:20 pm


EUR / USD
The EUR declined 0.43% against the USD and closed at 1.2898, as the Sentix investor confidence in the Euro-region deteriorated in September.

Yesterday, the ECB Executive Board Member, Sabine Lautenschlager, supported the recent decision of the ECB to cut its key interest rate, stating that it was necessary to prevent the risks of too low inflation and boost economic growth in the common currency bloc.

Separately, the IMF Chief, Christine Lagarde, suggested that the weakening of the Euro against the USD in the past few days is a positive sign for “recovery” in the single-currency bloc.

In the US, consumer credit climbed by $26.0 billion in July, higher than market expectations for a rise of $17.0 billion and compared to $18.8 billion in the previous month.

The pair is expected to find support at 1.2853, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.2824. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.2934, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.2986.

Amid a light economic calendar in the Euro-zone as well as in the US, trading trends in the pair today would be determined by global news.
GBP/USD
The GBP fell 0.73% against the USD and closed at 1.6095, as house prices in the UK rose less than expected in August, raising concerns over the health of the housing market in the nation.

Economic data released this morning indicated that like-for-like retail sales in the UK rebounded sharply, increasing 1.3%, on an annual basis in August, higher than market expectations for a rise of 0.3% and compared to a 0.3% fall recorded in the previous month.

The pair is expected to find support at 1.6029, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.5977. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.6180, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.6279.

Trading trends in the Pound today would be determined by the UK’s industrial and manufacturing data, scheduled for release in a few hours. Meanwhile, investors would keep a close eye on the BoE Governor, Mark Carney’s speech, as well as the NIESR’s crucial GDP estimate for the UK, scheduled later today.
USD/JPY
The USD strengthened 0.75% against the JPY and closed at 106.00.

Earlier today, the minutes of the BoJ’s latest monetary policy held in August indicated that policymakers are optimistic about Japan’s economic recovery and expect inflation to rise gradually.

The pair is expected to find support at 105.4, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 104.57. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 106.67, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 107.12.

Trading trends in the Yen today would be determined by Japan’s consumer confidence index as well as machine tool orders data, scheduled shortly.

USD CHF
The USD rose 0.45% against the CHF and closed at 0.9353. The Swiss Franc came under pressure, after retail sales in Switzerland fell unexpectedly at an annualized rate of 0.6% in July.

Meanwhile, the seasonally adjusted Swiss unemployment rate rose 3.2% in August, in line with market expectations. It follows a similar increase registered in the previous month.

The pair is expected to find support at 0.9329, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 0.9289. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 0.939, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 0.9411.
