  1. Hello, My name is Yana. I would like to establish here JustForex company. I would like to tell you a little bit about our company and gather a community of traders here and if you have any questions, I would be happy to help you here. JustForex offers several trading account types with a wide choice of trading instruments and everyone can find the most suitable one according to his preferences. Trading conditions: spreads from 0 pips, leverage up to 1:3000, mobile versions of MT4, order execution from 0.05 s. Please feel free to contact me here if you have any questions. And the question for traders here. What Forex broker do you trade with? And why? Let's discuss.
  2. Firebird is an indicator to identify the price spikes in the market. Firebird indicator first calculates a 10-period moving average, then shifts this moving average a certain percentage above and below the 10-period moving average. The shifted averages are drawn on chart as the red and green line. When price touches these lines, price spike is identified. Usually after a price spike, the trend reverses for some time. The indicator can be used to take advantage of this price behaviors. In daily chart usually the 10 period MA is shifted by 2 percent to form the price bands. On lower time frames like Hourly, Four Hour a smaller percentage price shift is used like 0.5% . The important consideration here is most of the price bars must be contained within the upper and lower bands. When price reaches above the upper red band, a sell position is opened. When price reaches the lower green band, buy position is opened. Trades can be managed with proper stop loss and take profit. In the picture, Firebird indicator is attached to daily chart of EUR/USD with 2% shift on MA. Note that almost all price bars are within the price bands. And when price extends beyond these bands, price trend reverses and comes back into the bands. FireBird.zip
  3. Or are they the same thing? They seem so similar, but my broker (Jones Mutual) offers both, so what is the difference and which one is better?
  4. Does it mean that you are an expert just because you make a lot of profit? The amount of profit cannot be used to measure the value of a trader. Yes, you must be doing something right if you are making a frequent profit. However, that does not determine if you are an expert or not just by your profit. This is quite a common misunderstanding in the forex industry. Making a large profit is only one side of the forex market. Majority of forex traders tend to lose most of the time after they have experienced profit. But why? So many traders fall into a fantasy land where they make an endless amount of money at the beginning. Many beginner traders tend to gain profit at the start not knowing the importance of technical analysis of the market. The experts on the other hand who stayed became wealthy and stayed that way, continue gaining profit, are all knowledgeable when it comes to the basics. Experts have dialed many ways to control their minds to be set right to be a trader. Understanding of the market is a must know anyway. Expert traders wait patiently until the right opportunity comes. Opportunity comes to everyone. What differentiates the experts and the beginners is that experts know when the opportunity has come and knows to take advantage of it. Making profit by luck is possible, and yes luck is also very important. But can you profit with luck every time? How an expert trader is determined is not by how much the person gained, it’s about the precision and the frequency of results. Profit can’t be maintained by luck. It is maintained and is a result of precision and strategical execution. You shouldn’t worry because you’re not gaining any profit right now. You should be building your skill sets to be a better trader by experiencing many trading situations of losses and wins. If you invest in your time to improve, your results are guaranteed to increase more frequently and will become more stable.
  5. How to reduce eroding Forex slippages? Slippage is more likely to occur in times of higher volatility (perhaps due to market events) and it makes a market order at a specific price impossible to execute. Such times are when large orders are executed, when market orders are used and when there is not enough interest at the desired price level to keep the expected trade price. Slippage is neither negative or positive movements, it is simply the difference between the expected purchase price and actual executed price. Since the corresponding securities are bought and sold at the most favorable price available, an order can result differently. In this situation, most forex dealers will execute the trade at the next best price. In forex world, the market prices changes fast and the slippage happens in times of delay between the order placed and its completion. Slippage is the difference between the expected filled price of a trade and the actual price filled. In other words, when your trade is executed at a worse price than requested, so it is “slipping” from the original order price. It happens between the time that a trader enters the trade and the time the trade is made. It can happen to everyone in any given trading market; stock, currency, or commodity. This may be caused by an ineffective broker, increased liquidity and fast market. The forex market is very liquid and there are limited amounts of slippage. Share your Idea Please Thanks!
  6. Anyone know where the statistic of 95% losing and 5% winners ratio for traders came from? I keep seeing this put up as a "FACT" but there doesn't seem to be anything other than anecdotal evidence to support this statistic. Anybody have any idea?
  7. I'm looking for a reliable forex signal service (better with pending orders), with real and transparent results, I would be happy if someone answered me ... thanks
  8. I have been learning binary options and crypto trading for a little bit now. Its difficult to find a strategy that works best for me because there is a endless amount of them. What is the way that you found the strategy that worked for you or fit your trading style?? I have been trying alot of different ones but cant seem to find one that benefits me and its the most frustrating thing.
  9. A website that offers fraudulent EAs is being used for scams and other financial crimes. The website in question is btcmt4.com and belongs to Philippe Ballesio who uses the pseudonym "plukumust". He took away 1 BTC, never responded after paying for an EA he never sent. That man has a great history of scams, after investigating in depth I could find financial crimes, computer crimes and common crimes. Your most recent fraudulent system is btcmt4, be careful ...
  10. Hello, I wish to get into trading(maybe day trading). But my question is what should I focus on learning, stocks(btw I know about the $25000 limit but I don't know if I am going trade that many times a week) or Forex, atm I plan to start with 500-1000$. My background would be that I have taken an economics class in which one part was stocking as we had to play a stock market game for around 3 months. Also if you are wondering I don't plan to start real trading for at least a few months(I Plan to practice with demo accounts first and find a profitable strategy first). Thanks for the help!
  11. EURUSD: The pair looks to weaken further as it holds on to its downside pressure. On the upside, resistance comes in at 1.1600 level with a cut through here opening the door for more upside towards the 1.1650 level. Further up, resistance lies at the 1.1700 level where a break will expose the 1.1750 level. Conversely, support lies at the 1.1500 level where a violation will aim at the 1.1450 level. A break of here will aim at the 1.1400 level. Below here will open the door for more weakness towards the 1.1350. All in all, EURUSD faces further downside pressure
  12. Hi, Seeing the increase in posts on various currency pairs, we have decided to start generic threads, this one being for EUR/USD. All items related to EUR/USD should go in here, *unless* there is a specialized topic or question related to EUR/USD. We will err on the side of caution and assume discussions on the pair should be in this thread. I hope this will keep the forums clean, discussions coherent and synchronized.
  13. A pip is the measure of change value between the two currencies and one pip is equal to 0.0001 of the change in value Multiplying the number of pips with the exchange rate is needed which tells how much the account has appreciated or depreciated in value
  14. Hello;) I've been tried a variety of FOREX trading platform. But there are so many pirate copies in the market. They are usually cause system instability and even disconnection. The ideal trading platform must with function of place market order, limit order and OCO...etc. Most of all, it can provide stable and safety environment for trading. Have you ever used the download trading platform like that? Please share your opinion.
  15. Still looking at some 15M down side w/ hidden divergence; not exp. lower than 61.8 fib retrace into congestion before 5th wave up.
  16. I am not a forex trader, I trade mostly ES, JY, EC, BP, CD futures. I have been studying forex for some time for the sake of understanding better and have decided I might jump in. I lack the understanding of how forex data works, my understanding is that the big banks and brokers provide their data to data providers who then consolidate it into total volume. It seems to me I would want a data provider who provides the most banks input for their data. I am looking for tick data on up and a provider who would list their bank data in a way where I could identify the largest contributors, sort them somehow and develop an indicator to show me this big boy volume. Do any of you know which providers have the largest amount of volume providers and list them in way like market makers on L2? Also, I am not an expert here and would appreciate any corrections to my thoughts or assumptions. Thanks you MM
  17. Whether you have $20 or $200,000 to invest, the objective is the same: to make your money grow. The means, however, vary dramatically based on your investing style and how much money you have to work with. If you invest effectively enough, you could conceivably live off the earnings from your investments! 1. Build your emergency fund. If you don't have such an account already, it's a good idea to focus your efforts on setting aside three to six months' worth of living expenses just in case — hence, an "emergency fund." This is not money that should be invested; it should be kept readily accessible and safe from swings in the market. You can split your extra money every month, sending part of it to your emergency fund and part of it to your investments. Don't tie up all of your extra money in investments, unless you have a financial safety net in place; anything can go wrong (a job loss, injury, illness) and failing to prepare for that possibility is irresponsible.
  18. Hi, Seeing the increase in posts on various currency pairs, we have decided to start generic threads, this one being for AUDUSD. All items related to AUDUSD should go in here, *unless* there is a specialized topic or question related to AUDUSD. We will err on the side of caution and assume discussions on the pair should be in this thread. I hope this will keep the forums clean, discussions coherent and synchronized.

  24. Based on my own experience as well as working with hundreds of traders over the years, I have come to the conclusion that there are three major components to winning in the stock market. An excellent Method, a customized Plan that fits YOU, and the right Mental Approach. While mastery of each of them is paramount, building the right Mental Approach seems to be the most challenging to master for the majority of traders. Without a winning attitude and the proper mindset, even the soundest of all methods will lead to lost money. In fact, a winner is more defined by mental make-up than by method. This is why the trader with a winning attitude and a faulty approach can still produce positive results, while the trader with a loser's mentality will stumble and fall, despite an excellent approach. Don't think so? What do you actually think causes one trader to play six winners in a row, and another to experience six consecutive losses? How is it that one trader can use a daily newsletter and win, while another uses it and loses? What do you think differentiates the person who buys XYZ and wins, from the person who buys the same XYZ and loses? The difference lies in the Mind, plain and simple. One of the most revolutionary axioms I have ever come across is this: "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he," and this universal truth is just as applicable to traders as it is to anyone else. Monitor the attitude of a winner and you will find a level of confidence and certainty that is almost beyond belief. And while most people will make the mistake of assuming that winners are confident and certain because they win; the truth is that winners consistently win because they are confident and certain. No method, however sound, will work for the trader who mentally pictures himself losing before each trade is placed. And no amount of Money, however large, will save the individual who secretly harbors the belief that, "Whatever I touch, turns to mush." As choice-making individuals, we must choose a winner's mindset. You can never fail, or even feel like a failure, if you recognize the simple fact that you are not your results. You create them, which means that you posses the power to alter them if you happen not to care for them. There is room at the top for all dedicated traders, but the first step is to actually believe that. The second is to start acting like it. Think the part, then act the part and the rest mysteriously takes care of itself. But don't take my word for it. Just try it. Jared Wesley
