  1. Technical Reviews for Gold and Silver (December 2018) GOLD (XAUUSD) Dominant Bias: Bullish Gold has been making attempts to go upwards this month. The attempt started on November 13, when price reached the monthly low of 1195.90, and since then, price has gained roughly 5200 pips. This has generated a bullish signal in the market (both in the long-term and the short-term). The bullish signal is supposed to be sustained until the end of the year as price gains another 3000 pips minimum, thereby creating a huge Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Short positions are not currently recommended. SILVER (XAGUSD) Dominant Bias: Neutral Unlike Gold, which has had a sensible bullish signal on it, Silver remains neutral, with no directional movement in the last few weeks. In the long run, the neutrality has been in place since August 2018. Although there seems to be some noticeable bullish effort in the short-term, that is not significant enough to result in a bullish signal, unless price goes above the supply zone at 15.0000, which would require some determined buying pressure in the market. While the current consolidation will probably continue for some time, the trend is expected to end before the end of this year, leading to a breakout that will most probably favor bulls.

  2. Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

    Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (December 3 - 7, 2018) Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Bearish The bias is neutral in the short-term and bearish in the long-term. Last week, price swung upwards and downwards without having a directional movement. That is going to change this week, as a prolonged directional movement is expected, which would most probably favor bulls, as price is approaching major support lines at 1.1250 and 1.1200 (areas where further bearish effort will be rejected). USDCHF Dominant bias: Bullish Although inversely, when compared to the EUR/USD, this pair is neutral in the short-term and bullish in the long-term. The market also moved upwards and downwards last week, without any clear direction. This week, a clear directional movement is anticipated and that would most probably favor bears. This does not mean there cannot be rally attempts, but it would meet a strong hindrance at the resistance levels of 1.0050, 1.0100 and 1.0150. GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish This is a bear market – both in the long and the short term. Bullish efforts have proven abortive as the market retains its bearishness. On Friday, price closed at 1.2744, and it may go further downwards towards the accumulation territory at 1.2700, and below that. However, the further southwards the price goes, the higher the probability of a bullish breakout when it does happen, and that will be strong when it happens. USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish USDJPY is slightly bullish – with a kind of precarious Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Further rally from here will result in a stronger Bullish Confirmation Pattern; while a southwards movement from here will result in nullification of the Bullish Confirmation Pattern, which may harbinger a “sell” signal in the market. Either of the aforementioned scenario will materialize this week, for a rise in momentum is expected. EURJPY Dominant bias: Neutral This is a neutral market, which has been consolidating for the past 3 weeks. The consolidation phase is bounded by the supply zone at 130.00 and the demand zone at 126.00. As long as price is within that supply zone and that demand zone, the consolidation phase will exist. On the other hand, there should be an end to the consolidation phase before the end of the week. It is after that that winners will be determined; either the bull or the bear. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Neutral This is a flat market, which has been particularly flat since the middle of November 2018. There is supposed to be an end to the flatness this week, because a rise in the momentum of the market is expected. The most probable direction would be skywards when a breakout does occur, because there is a high probability that GBP will gain enormous stamina. The supply zones at 146.00, 146.50 and 147.00 might be reached soon. This forecast is concluded with the quote below: “Trading is like playing chess; you can learn a lot about it by reading books but if you really want to get good in it, you actually have to do it on your own. Practice is necessary to becoming successful in many professions; and trading is one of them!” – Andy Jordan Source: www.tallinex.com
  3. THERE IS NO MAGIC “Your trading methodology has to make sense for you even if it’s the opposite of what makes sense for other people. Choices made in developing your approach to trading should suit you personally to minimize internal conflict. Only then will you have the confidence to remain true to its development and its execution during tough times. The long-term advantage of developing your own system from scratch (rather than trading someone else’s system) assures you of high compatibility with your beliefs, personality, edges, and objectives. That compatibility becomes one of your sustainable edges. As Curtis Faith of Turtle fame noted: “It’s not about the system, it’s about the trader’s ability to execute the system.” – (Source: VanTharp.com) LB and I have just wrapped up the final in our series on full time trading. For the most part they have been enjoyable except for one twat who complained that it was unprofessional of LB to not present when she was suffering from severe laryngitis. Presenting for the first time in years is an interesting thing as the expectations of those you present to also change over time. This particular series could be summarised as all the mistakes I have made in trading and the solutions I have found such as they are. One of the things I have learnt over the past few decades is that there is no magic. Trading is a grinding profession where your central tenet is not to go broke waiting for the next big move. I think in part some attendees were waiting for the magic. That point in the seminar where you do a grand reveal of your magic strategy that never has a losing trade which means you can quit your job tomorrow and start trading full time with nothing other than a credit card because CFD providers will now in their wisdom allow you to fund your account with credit and earn frequent flyer points. Regrettably the field of investing has been tainted by endless shonks who have polluted the thinking of people before they even set foot in the market. Before writing this piece, I Googled trading bitcoin for a living and got 35,900,000 returns. Certainly not all of them relate to trading bitcoin or any other crypto full time but if even 10% do then then that’s a staggering 3.5 million sites promising people that they can give up their day job and start trading overnight. The central theme of these sorts of sites and it is not limited to cryptos is that you can trade full time with very limited capital. And you can do this because you will never have a losing trade. Your equity curve will be a linear trajectory that soars from the bottom left hand corner of the chart to infinity without ever breaking stride. I can understand why this sort of thing has permeated the thinking of new traders. Whilst this sounds seductive it ignores many of the key realities of trading the foremost of which is that trading does not produce linear returns. We encounter a feature of equity curves called drawdown. All trading systems generate drawdowns – in a very general sense if you are a trend following you expect to have a drawdown of between 15% to 25% once per year. As an example, consider the equity curve below. This is the equity curve of Dunn Capital a money manager that uses trend following as its basic tool. You see decades of outperformance punctuated by drawdowns. There is an inviolate relationship between performance and drawdown, if you are swinging fr the fences you need to expect to be struck out a lot. Irrespective of the trading system drawdown is a fact of life for traders – it can only be avoided by not trading. If someone tells you that their equity curve never draws down, then they are a liar. It really is that simple. The implication for those seeking to trade full time is that your first drawdown will coincide with your move to full time trading. This is a natural feature of systems, they cut their losses and then let their profits run. There is a timing dislocation between these two events that results in the account value immediately slipping. The problem is that this occurs at a time when you are most economically and emotionally vulnerable, it is also a problem because most new traders are undercapitalised. They simply don’t have enough money because they have not thought their transitions through and they may or may not have been infected by the thinking that you can give up your day job and earn 100k a year on a bank of 50k. It is at this point in a seminar that I can see how people begin to sag because it begins to dawn on them that they need much more than think to survive as a trader. However, I think they are missing the bigger picture since the move to full time trading does not have to be an all-in proposition. The move can occur gradually over time as your capital grows and you acquire more skill. And along the way your life begins to change in small but incremental amounts. You may even reach a point where you stop believe in magic and start believing in your own ability to slowly and inexorably change your own life.

Source: https://www.tradinggame.com.au/there-is-no-magic/ I end this piece with the quotes below: “Just coming back from vacation where we’ve been doing a lot of hiking in the mountains, here’s an analogy. You’re standing on a peak of a mountain looking at an even higher peak. But to get there you first have to go down that small valley…no way around it! It's the same in trading, so as long as the size of the drawdown is within your expectations, you can and should relax when you’re in a drawdown. It's just a necessity you have to endure to get those profits. So understanding and accepting Drawdowns as part of this business will make your life as a trader much easier!” – Marco Meyer (Source: Tradingeducators.com) “Having said that drawdowns are still making me uncomfortable. I don't like them at all and each time I'm in a big one I'm having the same doubts and troubles most of you probably have too. But knowing that actually nothing is wrong helps a lot to make it through these times. Without that knowledge and understanding, you not only have the doubts but you allow them to win over, follow them and then probably stop trading at the worst time possible.” – Marco Meyer (Source: Tradingeducators.com) www.tallinex.com wants you to make money from the markets
  4. Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Bearish EURUSD has become particularly bearish since last week (the bearishness has been in place since August 2018). On November 7, another phase of a bearish movement was begun and price has really become weak. There are support lines 1.1250, 1.1200 and 1.1150, which would tend to impeded further bearish journey. The outlook for this week is bearish, and thus long trades are not currently recommended. USDCHF Dominant bias: Bullish This pair is currently doing exactly the opposite of what EURUSD is doing. The trend is bullish and the bullishness has been in place for a long time. On Wednesday, there was a new lease of bullish breakout, which has made the market skyrocket by nearly 150 pips. The bullish trend is still in place as there is a high probability that price will continue going upwards this week, reaching the resistance levels at 1.0100, 1.0150 and 1.0200. It is highly unlikely that price will be able to stay above the resistance level at 1.0200, even if it breaks it to the upside. GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish The situation surrounding the Cable is currently dicey. The long-term trend is bearish and the short-term trend is bullish. However, the current selling pressure is undermining the short-term bullish signal in the market. Since last week Wednesday, the market has lost well over 320 pips, and another loss of at least, 300 pips, will result in a stronger Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. . USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish There is an undisputable Bullish Confirmation Pattern on this currency trading instrument. In the long run, price has gained over 900 pips since March 2018, plus the current bullish breakout has occurred since October 29. Some other JPY pairs are currently trending downwards, but USDJPY remains strong, thanks to the strength in Greenback. The current strength should remain in place, otherwise, a massive bearish movement could begin. EURJPY Dominant bias: Bearish This cross is bearish in the short-term, but neutral in the long-term. In the long run, the market is quite choppy; whereas there has been a slow and steady bearish movement in the shorter timeframe. The recent bullish signal that was generated (especially last week), has been threatened by the ongoing southwards movement in the market. The further the price moves downwards, the more convincing the weakness in the market. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bearish The market is a kind of bullish in the short-term; but the situation in the market is precarious as the trend remains undecided in the long-term, and the bull is almost giving way to the bear’s pressure. Since Friday, GBPJOY has lost 320 pips, now getting close to the demand zones at 145.00. The demand zone could be breached to the downside, which may render the recent “buy” signal in the market useless; otherwise, the “buy” signal will be saved. This forecast is concluded with the quote below: “Money is made as a by-product of following a sound trading plan, and adhering to the principles of money management.” – Louise Bedford Source: www.tallinex.com
  5. Technical Reviews for Gold and Silver (November 2018) GOLD (XAUUSD) Dominant Bias: Bearish Gold is bearish is the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. Since April 2018, price has shed 20,000 pips, reaching a yearly low of 1159.00. However, price has been ranging since the yearly low was reached in August, as speculators await breakouts of the price. There have recently been wild upwards and downwards swings, which have not been strong enough to put an end to the ongoing sideways movement in the market. This is supposed to happen before the end of November and the most probable direction is towards the north. . SILVER (XAGUSD) Dominant Bias: Bearish Exactly like Gold, Silver is also bearish in the long-term and sideways in the short-term. Since the top of April 2018, price has gone downwards by over 30,000 pips, reaching an annual low of 13.0000 in September 2018. Since then, the market has become very choppy with no directional movement. A movement towards the annual low will give emphasis to the ongoing Besrish Confirmation Pattern in the market; otherwise a protracted bullish movement, which goes on for a few days consecutively, will result in a valid bullish signal.

  6. Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

    Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (October 27 - November 2, 2018) Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Bearish EURUSD is in a bearish trend – which started about 2 weeks ago. Price went downwards by roughly 160 pips last week, having gone down by 250 pips since October 15. Further bearish movement is anticipated, that would move price towards the support lines at 1.1350 (which was previously tested and will be tested again), 1.1300, and 1.1250. However, a very strong selling pressure is needed to break the support line at 1.1250 to the downside. USDCHF Dominant bias: Bullish There remains a Bullish Confirmation Pattern on USDCHF, which has been in place for at least, 4 weeks. Since the current bullish movement began in September 21, price have moved forwards by about 470 pips. Last week, there was no significant bullish movement, and price closed on a bearish note on Friday, which was presumed to be a temporary reversal in the context of an uptrend. The bullish journey is expected to resume soon. GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish The movement on Cable is nearly similar to the movement on EURUSD – the only difference being that the movement on the former is faster than the movement on the latter. Since October 12, price has dropped at least, 450 pips, as the market makes high lows and lower lows. Higher lows allow traders to enter short at better prices, and it is a pattern that is expected to continue as Cable targets the accumulation territories at 1.2800, 1.2750 and 1.2700. USDJPY Dominant bias: Bearish The market is bearish, especially in the short-term; and in spite of bulls’ effort, a bearish signal has already been generated and this will become more significant as the market goes further southwards (a trend that is expected this week and next week). There would be pauses and transitory rallies on the way, but the demand levels at 111.50, 111.00 and 110.50 would be reached. EURJPY Dominant bias: Bearish This is a classic example of a bearish movement. Since September 21, price has dropped roughly 600 pips, thus giving a rise to a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern. The market will continue its drop this week, as JPY continues to exert its energy. There is going to be lots of opposition to the bearish trend once price reaches the demand zone at 126.50, nonetheless. But with enough selling pressure, the demand zone will be breached to the downside. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bearish There was a massive drop on the GBPJPY, which happened last week, and which ended the protracted ranging movement that was seen in the latter part of September 2018 and the early part of October 2018. The last week drop was over 400 pips, as the weakness in GBP was too favorable to the stoing JPY. Price closed on a bearish note on Friday, following some shallow upwards bounces. Further drop of at least, 250 pips is anticipated this week. This forecast is concluded with the quote below: “Markets go up and markets go down. Sometimes they go up a lot and sometimes they go down a lot.” – Chris Tate Source: www.tallinex.com
  7. THESE 4 TRAITS WILL MAKE TRADERS SUCCESSFUL If you have a passion for trading, Dr. Brett Steenbarger has some choice words for you: you're not going to make it. Instead, traders need to be passionate about markets. It may sound like a minor distinction, but it's not. In decades of working with billionaire hedge fund managers and traders, he's found that traders that are passionate about trading don't put in the work and trade too much. To be successful trading, Dr. Steenbarger has learned: 1. A rule of thumb for how traders should control losses so that they never lose more in a morning than they can make in an afternoon, more in a day than they can make in a week and more in a week than they can make in a month; 2. Why traders should not just focus on minimizing their weaknesses, but also maximizing their strengths; 3. A simple trading journal that will help you improve each day; and 4. That the best traders are ones that embrace losses and use them to become better.

  8. Technical Reviews for Gold and Silver (October 2018) GOLD (XAUUSD) Dominant Bias: Bearish Gold is bearish in the long-term, but bullish in the short-term. Price skyrocket on October 11, thus bringing about a bullish signal in the short-term. In the long-term, Gold would need to continue making its bullish effort before the long-term bias can become bullish as well (provided the market continues going upwards). A movement to the south, would invalidate the short-term bullish signal and strengthen the bears’ position and enable a bearish trend continuation. However, a move to the upside is the most likely. SILVER (XAGUSD) Dominant Bias: Bearish Silver is neutral in the short-term, and bearish in the long-term. Should the market continue its current consolidating movement, the long-term bias also may become neutral. It is more likely that the current market condition will continue, until the situation changes around the end of November 2018. That means a breakout is more likely to occur, and when it does occur, it would most probably favor bulls. Either there would be a bullish breakout by the end of November, or there would be a continuation of the current short-term consolidation. Source: www.tallinex.com
  9. Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

    Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (October 8 - 12, 2018) Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Bearish The market was bearish last week, and the bearishness has become pronounced since September 26, 2018. Since the mentioned period, price has lost about 300 pips (or more or less). The market would remain bearish as long as USD is strong, and the support lines at 1.1450, 1.1400 and 1.1350 may be tested. There could be temporary bullish effort on the way, but the general movement this week should be bearish. USDCHF Dominant bias: Bullish The Bullish Confirmation Pattern on this market has been steady and unaffected. Since September 21, price has gained about 390 pips (it gained about 140 pips last week). Price topped at 0.9953 and ended Friday on a slight bearish note. The outlook for this week is bearish, as price is expected to continue going upwards until it reaches the resistance level at 1.0000 where a very strong and stiff resistance will be met. GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish The bias on the GBP is bearish but there is a serious rise in a bullish momentum, which would eventually render the bearish outlook ineffectual. Price went downwards from Monday till Wednesday and then started going upwards. The upwards movement was strong enough to threaten the extant bearishness in the market, and once the market gains another 200 pips (which is expected to happen this week), the bias on the market will turn bullish. USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish USDJPY went upwards from October 1 to 3, and then started going downwards from October 4. Unless the demand levels at 112.00 is breached to the downside, the outlook on the market will remain bearish. A movement from here, towards the north, will result in confirmation of the current bullish bias. That means failure to go upwards will eventually result in “sell” signal in the market. EURJPY Dominant bias: Bullish This cross is bearish in the short-term, but bullish in the long-term. The movement that was experienced last week was not that much, but this week might be different, as JPY pairs break out with renewed momentums. Should price drop 200 pips from here, the bias on the market will turn bearish. Should price rise by 200 pips from here, the long-term bullish bias on the market will eventually be saved. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bullish The rally attempt that was seen last Friday ended the consolidation that was witnessed in the last two weeks. If not for the fact that the JPY is kind of strong in its own right, the market would have gone upwards significantly last week (Just as GBPCHF, GBPAUD and GBPNZD have gone significantly upwards). However, any signs of weakness in JPY may result in a strong bullish movement, which may enable price to reach the supply zones at 149.50, 150.00 and 150.50. This forecast is concluded with the quote below: “Your trading life is the sum total of all of your experiences, not just the ones you are comfortable with.” – Woody Johnson Source: www.tallinex.com
  10. Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

    Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (October 1 - 5, 2018) Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Bearish This pair has become bearish, especially in the short-term. Last week, price went sideways from Monday to Wednesday and then dropped sharply on Thursday and Friday. The drop was 170 pips, and it was enough to bring about a near-term bearish outlook on the market. This week, the bearishness could continue as the market is projected to drop at least, another 100 pips, which would enable the support line at 1.1500 to be reached. USDCHF Dominant bias: Bullish There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern on USDCHF, brought about by the strength in the Greenback (and the bearish run on EURUSD). The rate at which USDCHF has gone upwards is faster and more serious that the rate at which EURUSD has come downwards. Price gained 230 pips last week, ending the recent bearishness in the market and ending September 28 on a bullish note. The outlook on the market is bullish for this week. GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish In the first 3 weeks of September, Cable made commendable effort to bring about a sustainable bullish signal in the market. Nevertheless, the downward movements that was witnessed on September 21, 27 and 28, have rendered the bullish effort useless. In fact, the bias on the market is now bearish and the accumulation territories at 1.3000, 1.2950 and 1.2900 could be tested before the end of the week. USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish This is a bull market, with a clean Bullish Confirmation Pattern. The strength of USD, plus the perceived weakness in JPY, has helped the buying pressure in the last few weeks. Since September 7, the market has gained about 320 pips, and it might gain at least, another 200 pips within the next 2 weeks. This week is going to be volatile for JPY pairs, as it is the new week of the October. EURJPY Dominant bias: Bullish On September 24 and 25, this cross went sideways. From September 26 to 28, it began to pull back. The pullback was not significant enough to bring about a bearish signal in the market, unless price falls by another 200 pips. From this point, price has a higher probability of going upwards than going downwards, and as a result of this, the supply zones at 132.00, 132.50 and 133.00 might be attained before the end of this week. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bullish There is a valid bullish outlook on this trading instrument, irrespective of the fact that the market movement was flat throughout next week. It is possible that the flatness in the market could continue for a few more days, before there is a breakout in the market. When the breakout occurs eventually, it would end the current flatness in the market and most probably favor bulls. The expected bullish movement could even become significant, especially when GBP finally begins to gather strength. This forecast is concluded with the quote below: “…The good thing is that there is no age limit when it comes to trading and, unlike the Olympics, you don't have to worry so much about the physical part as you can go for gold from the comfort of your chair.” – TradingEducators Source: www.tallinex.com
  11. Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

    Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (September 24 - 28, 2018) Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Bullish The current bias on the market is bullish, but the bullishness is not very strong. Price consolidated in the first few trading days of last week, and went higher on Thursday. The outlook on the market remains bullish for this week, and thus, buying pressure may take price towards the resistance lines at 1.1750 (which was previously reached), 1.1800 and 1.1850. There is also a good support line at 1.1650, which should try to prevent any meaningful pullback along the way. USDCHF Dominant bias: Bearish The market dropped roughly 100 pips last week, having dropped 400 pips since August 17, 2018. Since there is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, it is assumed that the price should continue going further and further downwards, reaching the support levels at 0.9550, 0.9500 and 0.9450 within the next few weeks. There could be some transitory rallies along the way, but they should not be significant to the extent of overriding the current bearish market. . GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bullish This long-term and the short-term biases are bullish. Since August 16, 2018, price gained 600 pips, resulting in a confirmed “buy” signal. On September 21, there was a serious pullback in the market, which made price drop 200 pips from the high of that day. The drop was not strong enough to bring about a “sell” signal, unless the market drops at least, another 200 pips. This will determine what the market will do next. USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish About two weeks ago, a clean bullish signal was generated on this currency trading instrument, and the signal has been sustained till now. For about two weeks, price has gone northwards slowly and gradually, gaining about 200 pips. There is much room for price to go northwards: The supply levels at 113.00, 113.50 and 114.00 could be aimed at, although a very strong buying pressure is needed to reach the supply level at 114.00.. EURJPY Dominant bias: Bullish Like USDJPY, this cross has been going upwards in the last two weeks (a gain of roughly 500 pips). Since there is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, further northwards journey is possible, even in spite of the minor bearish retracement that was witnessed last Friday. The supply zones at 135.50, 136.00 and 136.50 could be reached within the next several trading days. They could even be exceeded. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bullish Since a bullish signal was generated on GBPJPY, price has made a significant gain. Nonetheless, there was a pullback on September 21, which cannot be ignored (a pullback of 240 pips). It is normal for price to resume its northward journey from here, giving a good opportunity to go long at lower prices. On the other hand, the market could pull back further, and that may threaten the recent bullish signal. This forecast is concluded with the quote below: “Any one of the many trading strategies available to traders can be used following the principle of matching personal risk tolerance to the amount of risk in the market.” – Joe Ross Source: www.tallinex.com
  12. Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

    Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (September 17 - 21, 2018) Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Neutral The bias on EUR/USD has essentially turned neutral, as price has not made any significant upwards or downwards movement in the last several trading days. There is a resistance line at 1.1750, and there is a support line at 1.1500. Either the resistance line must be breached to the upside, or the support lines must be breached to the downside before there could be a directional bias. That is what is expected before the end of this week or next. USDCHF Dominant bias: Bearish This is a bear market. In the medium-term, the market has been swinging up and down. The price action is characterized by higher lows (which proffer opportunities to sell short at slightly higher prices), and lower lows, which follow the line of the least resistance. The most probable direction for the market this week is bearish. Price has remained bearish when EURUSD was weak, and therefore, it would be very difficult for USDCHF to trend upwards when EURUSD breaks out upwards. GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bullish A clean bullish signal has already been generated in the market. Even in the higher time horizon, price has been going upwards in the past four weeks. On Friday, the market closed on a slightly bearish note – which would eventually turn out to be a temporary pullback in the market. The recent bullish journey is expected to resume, and the distribution territories at 1.3100, 1.3150 and 1.3200 may be reached within two weeks. USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish A straightforward bullish signal has been generated and there is a high probability that the market would continue to make higher highs, owing to the Bullish Confirmation Pattern that was present in the market. Within the next several trading days, price is expected to reach the supply levels at 112.50, 113.00 and 113.50. There is also a demand level at 111.00, which is supposed to be a barrier to any bearish pullbacks along the way. EURJPY Dominant bias: Bullish The bias is bullish, but the bullishness is weak. Further bullish movement is expected but any surprisingly negative fundamentals can send the market tumbling (owing to the precariousness of the market). The next targets are the supply zones at 130.50, 131.00 and 132.00. A very strong buying pressure is needed for the supply zone at 132.00 to be breached to the upside, and this will not come without bearish machinations. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bullish This cross gained about 370 pips last week, having gained over 700 pips since August 15. Price closed on Friday, around the demand zone at 146.00. The outlook on the market remains bright, and therefore, in spite of any possible pullbacks in the market, general movement will be towards the north. The Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market will aid price towards the supply zones at 146.50, 147.00 and 147.50.

  13. TIMELY EXIT “Successful Trading Is Not About Being Right.” – VTI What is your tolerance for pain? Consider the following scenario. You have 10% of your account balance on the line. For the past two days, prices have been going in the direction you had anticipated, but today, an announcement was made that caused a market move that caused all your profits to be wiped out in an hour. What will you do? See if prices will move back to where you are okay again? At times like these, it is useful to have a clearly defined trading plan with a specific exit strategy. Trading is inherently uncertain. You never know exactly what will happen next. That’s what makes the business exciting to some traders but nerve wracking to others. How you handle adverse events that make prices move against you depends on your personality. The best way to protect your capital is to use protective stops. When formulating your trading plan, you must decide how much pain you can tolerate. How much money can you lose before you have to exit the trade? You can set this exit point as a formal stop loss, you can use the automatic settings on your trading platform to set a stop, or you can use a mental stop (not recommended). The problem with a formal stop loss procedure, whether it is a formal order or an automatic setting on your trading platform, is that a transitory change in price can ‘stop you out.’ if the placement of your stop loss does not adequately account for volatility. It’s hard to know how far a stock may move and a temporary drop can ruin your trading plan when a protective stop is not set properly. Mental stops may be more useful, but you run the risk of not being able to exercise your mental stop (think heart attack, nervous breakdown, stroke, personal emergency, computer failure, etc.). You can decide how far a stock price must move against you before you will liquidate the position. When prices reach the exit point, you can decide whether the low price is transitory or represents a significant change in trend. You can then exit the trade. This all sounds good in theory, but depending on your personality, you may not be able to carry out this strategy. If you have trouble controlling your emotions and you use a mental stop, for example, you may have trouble closing the trade when it reaches your exit point. Some people panic and out of fear don’t close their position when their mental stop is reached. These people may need to impose the proper amount of discipline on their trading actions by using an electronic stop or a formal stop-loss order. Minimizing trading losses is the hallmark of successful trading, but not all traders are equal when it comes to their ability to trade decisively under strain. If you want to trade profitably, you have to work around your personality. If you are cool headed, disciplined, and are willing to take the risk even under the most stressful conditions, you can use mental stops to protect your capital. But if you are easily shaken by choppy market action, you might want to use electronic, automatic stops to protect yourself. Whatever you do, however, minimize losses as much as possible. It’s the only way to trade profitably in the long run.

Sure it feels good to take some off the table right away…but it’s hardly ever successful in the long run.” - Marco Mayer “To make money out of these still requires good management. It is always challenging to see some traders make money from a trade while some traders lose money from the very same trade.” – Joe Ross “Don’t let those losses lead to mindset traps that can stop you from taking the next trade. Change the way you think about your loss, and you’ll regain your motivation. I guarantee it.” – Louise Bedford www.tallinex.com wants you to make money from the markets.
  14. Technical Reviews for Gold and Silver (September 2018) GOLD (XAUUSD) Dominant Bias: Bearish Gold is a bear market. In August price dipped by over 6000 pips, reaching around the support level of 1160.00 (a support level). From there, price moved upwards by 5000 pips and then moved sideways till the end of the month. All this happened in the context of a downtrend; plus the market has been moving sideways in the last two weeks. A breakout is imminent, and that would happen anytime before the end of September and it would most probably favor bears. Thus price is expected to go downwards by at least 5000 pips from here. SILVER (XAGUSD) Dominant Bias: Bearish Just like Gold, Silver is also bearish, but its downwards movement is more pronounced than that of Gold. Price dropped roughly 10,000 pips in August alone and it has dropped 32,000 pips since June 14, 2018. Owing to the current Bearish Confirmation Pattern, it is rational to expect further bearish movement (at least another 10,000 pips) in September. 4000 pips have already been lost this month, and after the current consolidation ends, further bearish journey should continue, leading to more shedding of pips.

  15. Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

    Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (September 3 - 7, 2018) Here’s the market outlook for the week: EURUSD Dominant bias: Bullish This pair started rising on August 15, and it gained more than 400 pips since then. However, there was a bearish retracement that took place last Thursday and Friday, which was not significant enough to override the recent bullish bias in the market (unless there is at least, 300 pip-drop from here). Price is supposed to recover and move higher this week, reaching the resistance lines at 1.1600, 1.1650 and 1.1700; which were all previously tested. USDCHF Dominant bias: Bearish This is a bear market. Since the last consolidation phase ended, price has come down by over 250 pips, closing on a bearish note on Friday. Since there is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, it is rational to expect further bearish pressure, which may push price towards the support levels at 0.9650, 0.9600 and 0.9550. The selling pressure needs to be significant for the support level at 0.9550 to be breached to the downside. GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish Cable is bullish in the short-term, but bearish in the long-term. Further northward movement will endangered the long-term bearish bias, while further southwards movement will strengthen it. Price closed below the distribution territory at 1.2900 on Friday, and may go slightly lower before any rally effort is made. The possibility of price moving lower is stronger than its possibility of moving higher. USDJPY Dominant bias: Neutral The bias is now essentially neutral, and the situation in the market is currently dicey (as the market is choppy). Recently, price has swung between the supply level at 112.00 and the demand level at 109.50. As long as price is between these demand and supply levels, the neutrality in the market will persist. Once the demand level is breached to the downside (and price stays below it) or the supply level is breached to the upside (and price stays above it), the neutrality will end and a directional bias will start. Nevertheless, this requires a strong momentum to happen. EURJPY Dominant bias: Bullish Since August 15, price has gained roughly 600 pips, before the bearish movement that was witnessed on August 30 and 31. From last week’s high, price went downwards by 200 pips, and it could still go downwards by another 100 pips or more or less. The bullish bias will remain intact as long as price does not go below the demand zone at 126.00. Bulls will generally continue to endeavor to push the price upwards. GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bullish The cross is bullish in the very short-term (though the long-term bias is somewhat bearish). A strong movement towards the south will result in more emphasis on the recent bearishness in the market, while a strong movement to the upside will result in a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. On the upside, the supply zones at 144.50, 145.00 and 145.50 could be reached, provided the market does not continue its current bearish correction.
