  1. Moving Averages work all the time anyone who says they dont they dont know what a chart is or what one looks like. Backtest it last few months and you will see its best to trade after a multiple cross when there is angle and seperation and price always bursts in that direction. the 20, 50 and 200 MA are used by most traders.
  2. Hi, When these types of bars come up on any timeframe are they stronger the more previous support or resistance points they break? E.G This CAD/JPY on the monthly has broken 6 previous months high lows likely to close end of month at this level does this make this bull very strong as its 6 months its broken resistance? Also, it has a GAP underneath it does that act as extra support/supply? Is price action likley to revist the gap? Thanks.
  3. Hi, Is it possible to know divergance through pure price action without using any indicators? Thanks.
  4. Okay I have attached can you tell the strength of the trend without MA's?
  5. Hi, Just looking for some input from the pros about these pairs which have MA's added to them, which they would feel would be the strongest going up/down? Is the steeper the MA's the healthier and stronger the trend going up n doon? Thanks.
  6. Great stuff do the commericals matter at all?
  7. So, that would be 59.2% change in trend?
  8. Does the blue or red line have any significance? or just ignore it? do you look at both fx futures and euro/dollar pair on this site or just 1?? Also, i got this info but it baffels me:-
  9. Cool, do you find the COT report useful do you use an indicator I am learning how to read it do you require to calculate it manually I found this website am I right and saying I look for the green line to go with the large non commercial speculators rather than hedgers or small specs? Charts | Timing Charts Do you select the currency pair as it states or are we looking at euro future? As fx doesnt have a central exchange?
  10. I see a cross over on the 1 min chart on EUR/USD at 10.47am MA it worked, but still stick to market structure along with MA system.
  11. To my understand indicators the majority of them when they were designed years ago and concept by the authors they used the stock market as a blueprint and foundation for their calculations. Yes, global markets move similar in 5 waves, however alteration required to be made for each instrument. I would advise only using 1 or at max 2 oscillators in trending markets only. There is no need to over complicate things missing you points and trades while you figure out if ADX is crossing this or that line.
  12. Yeah, thanks for that really looking for this missing piece FF is huge and you get lost. I post on a couple of forums as sometimes you get different types of replies than other most of the replies you get are not even about your question, but your spelling! or go to the chart Nial is great I watch his videos and read his articles and have him on facebook. Thanks.
  13. Hey Guys, I wanted to get the feedback of fellow traders new and experienced on the way they take reversals and continuation in confluence zones in trending markets between 5m-4 hour charts. In the spot fx market. I understand that continuations make up 65-70% of developed market patterns and reversals make up 30-35%. To my understanding for price action to make a continuation it usually stabs through the Support/Resistance zone or a momentum candle then pullbacks, which may been seen in lower timeframes for it to hold to make a continuation. Reversals usually make a pin bar reversal signal at a major structure level or between 38.2 - 78.6% fib level at times a double pin bar. I also seen at times price hugging the S&R lines especially in the Asian session coming into Europe for price to pullback and breakout only for it to fake out and then breakdown or a true breakout after a false breakout. Also, price tends to have a control point at 00 numbers with it either poking through and reversing or blasting through and continuing. What's your experience been like? Please stick to the topic.
  14. Hi, I trade spot forex majors I am wondering if someone experienced could tell me how long price reacts a specific swing hi and lows based on previous days or weeks? One place I heard it was about 2 months max others say 2 weeks I can’t seem to see it on the chart? I trade intraday 1-4 hour charts. Thanks.
  15. Really, 5 mins for a range to be developed sometimes? I guess the only way to find it is study the charts and write my findings.
