  4. EUR/USD Euro is still on a downtrend touching the support level of 1.2167. And a further decline can be foreseen finding new support at 1.2000 levels. But considering in a long run Euro is expected to bounce back. This is at the level of the lower line of a bearish trend seen on the daily chart. A reversal in the price itself is all that is needed now for confirmation. The upside target would be the 1.2325 range highs. On the other hand a decisive break below 1.2200 would continue the bearish trend down, targeting the monthly pivot at 1.2105. Today Market is expected to move in the price area of 1.2204 putting its support at 1.2162 and resistance at 1.2241. Economic Indicator : Italian 10-y Bond Auction GBP/USD GBP is carrying its downtrend movement.

That means market has potential to move even above this resistance level and putting its new resistance area at 0.9900 and if considering in long run it may touch 1.0000 in coming couple of days. Looking into other side of the picture we can forecast that if after touching the 0.9869 level market falls back it will move down at some area near0.9680 as the market will be in control of bearish investors.

  5. Pivot Points always include in my favorite list. Your article is very good to understand this magical tool. Thanks for sharing such a nice article.
  6. Trading Forex for a living from the comfort of your own home can be extremely profitale, but it can also drive you insane at times. So here i would like to offer my 6 top tips for keeping yourself sane when trading. 1) Check the day's economic calendar at the start of every session There is nothing more infuriating than taking the time to find a good position which goes nicely into profit, before suddenly turning into a losing position due to economic data release or Ben Bernanke (FED Chairmen) opening his big mouth, for example, Which you'd completely forgotten about. So always check the scheduled announcements for the day before you do anything else, and make note of them so you're never caught out. 2) Visit trading forums and chat to other traders online. trading from home is a lonely profession, and the frustrating thing is that you have no-one to share trading ideas with, so forums and trading rooms are great for this. obviously you don't want to spend too much time doing this otherwise you might miss some great opportunities, but they are worth visiting during quiet periods, of which there are many during the day. 3) Leave the house and speak to real people. Following on from the last point , the loneliness factor is a very real one and for that reason I always say that you should make a point of going out and mixing with people as much as possible when you're not trading. If you are not careful, after long periods of time it is very easy to go out less and less and find yourself becoming more and more introverted, so try not to fall into this trap. 4) take plenty of exercise It is an old saying, "A healthy body is a healthy mind" , and it is completely true. Apart from the fact that you need to be completely switched on when making trading decisions, sitting down starting at a computer screen for hours on end is really not good for your eyes, your back or your health in general, therefore you should take plenty of exercise during the day and in your spare time to keep yourself healthy. 5) Take regular breaks and reward yourself occasionally. As well as exercising, it is also a good idea to take regular breaks during the day just to relax and chill out. trading can really get the pulse racing at times. and can be very stressful, so take a break occasionally. Also if you've made a highly profitable trade and achieved your daily target, If you have one, why not reward yourself with a DVD or a shopping spree, for example. After all there's more to lift than just making money. 6) Invest your profits into other areas. Trading forex is great, but why spend all your time busting a gut trying to make more and more money. If you do become a successful trader, invest some of it int stocks and property and make your money work for you. This way you will take some of the pressure off of yourself and you can become a more relaxed trader knowing you have other sources of income.
  7. There are some people who say that you need to suffer a few blowouts (wiping out your trading account) before you can become successful. I do not buy into this at all, simply because what this doesn't teach you is discipline, and if you want to become a successful Forex trader, then discipline is one of the key attributes you will need. When starting out you should not just throw some money into a trading account and say to yourself, "Well it is the money i can afford to lose, so what the hell, lets go for it". Instead you should protect that money as if it is your life saving and losing it all and being blown out is simple not an option. This will teach you to be disciplined both in your mind and in your trading where you should therefore be placing stop losses with every single trade to protect your capital in case you do incur any losses. The key to becoming a successful profitable trader is to keep your losses small and contained and let your winners run, so your trading pot grows over time. Unfortunately this is a lesson that even seemingly successful traders fail to learn.they may have built up large profits over a number of years, but if they do not use stop losses then eventually they can potentially be wiped out. Indeed I know several traders who have sadly suffered this fate (mainly due to their ego and overconfidence) so please do not let this happen to you. Accepting a small loss when your stop loss is triggered is easy to swallow, but suffering a blow out and being completely wiped out due to not having controlled stop losses in place is not.
  8. I just enjoy and cash the EUR/USD rallies. Short term trades are very useful. Just wait and short it on high. Market direction is very Clear,.
  9. Bear Markets show that investors lack optimism on the strength of the economy and expect asset prices to for the medium to long term. Downtrend are generally defined as when prices continue to make lower highs and lower lows and when this happens in excess relative to the historical averages, markets are said to be in a bearish trend.
  10. A Basket of Dollar Shorts shows that a trader is bearish on the US Dollar in relation to more than one currency. This investor is unsure which currency will be the strongest in the coming trend but there is a large degree of certainty that the US Dollar will weaken. This type of position is reflective of a general market stance that is usually based on macro economic fundamentals and is often seen in “risk taking” market environments.
  11. Bar charts allow traders to see some parts of price behavior while isolating others. This enables technical analysis to take a more objective view of price activity and to not be distracted by external “noise.” Bar charts are often used by Elliott Wave traders rather than candlesticks because they feel it allows them to watch movements in the larger trend activity with more clarity.
  12. Bad Fills can be frustrating for traders as they are often executed as a worse price than expected (too high in buy positions or too low for sell positions). There are generally two situations where this might occur. First is during times of excessive market volatility. Low liquidity levels can make it difficult for brokers to execute trades at specific prices. Other instances are seen when broker platform reliability is questionable. This situation is more avoidable, however, as long as a reputable broker is used.
  13. Automated Currency Trading is a broad term that could refer to stop or limit orders that have been previously established by a trader, or in the algorithmic trading that defines trade parameters independently through mechanisms such as an Expert Indicator in MetaTrader. Automated trading can carry a higher risk of loss and position sizes should be lowered as a means of protection against adverse market movements.
  14. The Australian Bureau releases macro economic data that can have a drastic effect of the price activity trends that are seen in the Australian Dollar. Data releases are scheduled for specific times on a monthly quarterly or yearly basis, and many traders base their position strategies based on the strength or weakness of the data that is made public. This information is also vital for the country’s central bank when monetary policy measures are being drafted.
  15. The Australian Dollar is abbreviated in a number of ways, such as the AUD, A Dollar, or Aussie. Traders refer to the Aussie as a way of discussing the general strength or weakness of the currency. This comparison is usually made against the US Dollar but this comparison can be made to other currencies as well.
  16. The AUD is the abbreviation used in forex pairs to define the value of the Australian Dollar relative to its counterparts. The AUD as a term, however, can be used to discuss the strength or weakness of the currency overall, and this would be apparent in phrases like “Today there was broad strength in the AUD across the board,” which would mean that the Australian Dollar gained in strength relative to all of its counterparts.
  17. The*Guilder can be broken down into*100*cents, similar to the Dollar-denominated currencies. This is mainly because the currency was pegged to the Dollar in 1840 (at a value of 1.89) and this value has gradually been adjusted since then. Traders investing in the ANG currency hold an optimistic view of the country’s macro economic fundamentals and the value and allocation of the countries natural resources.
  18. The Lek is the official currency of Albania, given value by the nation’s central bank. Traders investing in the ALL currency hold an optimistic view of the country’s macro economic fundamentals and the value and allocation of the countries natural resources. Price levels are heavily influenced by inflation rates, and the low liquidity levels of this currency make it unavailable in many brokerships.
  19. One of the main tasks of financial institutions is to manage aggregate and limit exposure to adverse price swings. This can be seen in debt defaults, for example, and a financial manager’s job is to adjust position sizes so that excessive exposure is not seen at any one time.
  20. The Afghani can be broken down into*Pul, and is a relatively new creation (beginning circulation in 2003) now used as a replacement for the previously weak national currency. Traders investing in the AFA currency hold an optimistic view of the country’s macro economic fundamentals and the value and allocation of the countries natural resources.
  21. The*Diram can be broken down into*100*fuloos (1 fil x 100). In many cases, this currency is written using Dhs or DH as its symbol. Traders investing in the AED currency hold an optimistic view of the country’s macro economic fundamentals and the value and allocation of the countries natural resources.
  22. Also referred to as an “acquisition adjustment” this term refers to the premium a company is willing to pay above the book value (total assets) when buying a smaller company. When a company is willing to pay these higher prices, it is reflective of an overall assumption that the industry or the specific managerial team is well positioned and is currently undervalued.
  23. Even though the currency is pegged to the currency of another nation, countries with an Adjustable Peg can adjust the value of their currency, plus or minus, within a narrow trading band. These decisions generally are implemented as a means for aiding that countries export companies, as a weaker currency encourages foreign buying.
  24. The Andorran Franc was pegged by the country’s central bank to trade at an equal rate with the Franc used in France (prior to 1999). Andorra did not establish a formal currency union with France, so there was no need to create physical coins or bills. Traders with a focus on this country will now watch movements in the Euro, as this is the currency now used by the Andorran nation.
  25. The Absolute Rate is shown in percentage form (not as a reference rate discount), and combines the reference rate and the discounted fixed percentage of an interest rate swap. So, with LIBOR rates at 2 percent and a fixed interest swap component of 6 percent, the Absolute Rate is calculated to be 8 percent.
