Well, I have retired in the Philippines in a small beach town that has internet, thank god! I invested for years in the USA to get me to this point and now the beach has become boring and I am learning the art of short term trading.

 

I look forward to meeting you all and learning what is available. If anybody needs info on trading in the Philippines, (yes they have direct access trading on the PSE) or living here or even vacationing here let me know.

 

Regards,

Marketmonkey

Hi Everyone.

 

I'm starting trading gold futures and need some help in understanding how to trade. I need a little clarification on the margin and the strike price. In stock futures trading I buy options based on the strike price, but in commodities trading there is a margin. Where does the strike price and future price based on the strike price come in? :confused:

Hi everyone,

 

I am a university student in Turkey interested in FX, equtities&indexes, commodities trading. I aim to become a systematic trader with incorporating backtesting, walk forward analysis, paper trading and eventually real/live trading a strategy :D.

 

I hope to earn a living out of trading for my own. My biggest obstacle in this path is inadequate programming skills, but I am working on it.

 

Thanks and I wish everyone profitable trades.

Hello! My name is Matt and I'm from Lithuania. I'm trading over a year now. I'm only 17 years old, started trading forex when I was 16. Now I have real account and so far I'm quite happy with my results. Still not very best, but doing my best to get better. On my free time I enjoy reading self-development books, training outside. Looking for new friends traders.

So I guess it's enough. Have a wonderful day and good luck for everyone!

 

Matt.

I am new here and have experience in trading Fx for 8 years and still continue learning today. I have discovered this website by accident, it was the link from another forum that guided me here. English is not my native language and so excuse me if I did not express well here. I am interested to learn how to use Market statistic and VWAP in MetaTrader 4 platform.

Hey Everyone!

 

My name is Gregg Schultz, I'm an electrical Engineer who liked to invest & trade on the side. I currently utilize an ETF "Rotation" strategy with many of the commission-free ETFs on Fidelity, and I actually like to put some of my savings into a few stable/"High Sharpe Ratio" mutual funds with Charles Schwab (again, some of their mutual funds don't charge commissions, and contributions can be as small as one dollar), as an alternative to a bank Savings account.

 

Otherwise, I'm hoping to learn about simple Options trading (perhaps a few "conservative" Iron Condors are in my future), particularly if I can integrate that knowledge with a "Value" investing strategy (an Options "Collar" for example, could allow me to purchase even more of an under-priced security if it ever gaps down).

 

Looking forward to seeing what comes of this experience at "Traders Laboratory", Woo-hoo! =)

Hi. I'm Yura and ja complete beginner. I've begun taking forex lessons at Babypips. I'm also looking through a book on candlestick trading by a guy named Candle Master.

 

I've never traded live yet, not even a demo. I'm currently studying candlestick charts. They seem the most simple and informative. But I guess I should try all kinds of methods to find what suits me best?

 

Hope I can learn some more here as well.

Hello all!

 

I am interested in programming for Forex trading. I've been sucking data into a mySql db and trading with IG API - but I think its time to move on to Mt4 or Mt5 (dilemma here I think) or perhaps a different tool. I have come to learn from the masters...;)

Hello - new guy here on the forums. I trade the ES. All my trade set up are based off of the Market Profile, confirming with Volume Imbalance Footprint and a few tick charts using only 3 non-correlated indicators. I look forward to contributing to the forums as much as I can.

Cheers!

    • Date : 27th November 2020.FX Update – November 27 – Sterling in FocusGBPUSD, H1Narrow ranges have been prevailing in risk-cautious trading. The USDIndex settled around the 92.00 level, above yesterday’s 12-week low at 91.84. EURUSD remained buoyant but off from the 12-day peak seen yesterday at 1.1942. Cable also held within its Thursday range. USDJPY ebbed to a four-day low at 103.91. The Yen was concurrently steady versus the Euro and the Pound, but posted respective two- and four-day lows against the Australian and Canadian Dollars. AUDUSD ticked fractionally higher, which was still sufficient to lift the pair into 12-week high terrain above 0.7380. NZDUSD posted a new 29-month peak at 0.7030. USDCAD remained heavy but just above recent 17-day lows. Bitcoin, which performed strongly this year on the back of dollar liquidity, found a toehold, but remained over 12% down on its recent highs.US markets will reopen after yesterday’s Thanksgiving holiday, but market conditions will remain on the thin side. President Trump said that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden, which may be as close to formally conceding the election as he will go. A sharp focus remains on EU and UK talks, with a face-to-face round reportedly taking place in London over the weekend. There are now reports that the EU parliament might convene as late as December 28 to ratify a deal, if necessary.The spectre of a no-deal hangs over proceedings, though the consensus, as judged by the ongoing stability of the Pound, remains for a narrow deal to be reached.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 26th November 2020.Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!The USD has remained soft in quiet conditions, while global asset markets have seen little direction. The US Thanksgiving holiday has quelled activity. Europe’s Stoxx 600 traded near flat. Most stock markets in Asia gained, though remained off recent highs. The MSCI World Index is also off its highs, but remained buoyant and on course for a record monthly increase this month. Copper posted a new near 7-year high, and while other base metal prices were also underpinned most remained off recent trend highs. Oil prices saw modest declines after recent gains, which culminated in a nine-month high yesterday.The Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!Sterling has seen limited direction, continuing to hold gains from month-ago levels of around 1.5% to 2.5% versus the Dollar, Euro and Yen. There is still no breakthrough in down-to-the-wire negotiations between the EU and UK, and there are lots of warnings of border chaos and, from external BoE MPC member Saunders, of long-lasting economic consequences in the event of a no deal exit from the common market.European Commission president von der Leyen said “we are ready to be creative” to get a deal while repeating that “we are not ready to put into question the integrity of the single market.” An Irish government member said that a deal was “imperative” for everyone.The steadiness in the Pound, the principal conduit of financial market Brexit sentiment, reveals that investors remain unperturbed. One explanation is the real money participants are sitting on their collective hands, positioning for an expected deal but waiting on concrete developments and details, while maintaining vigilance on the possibility of there being a no deal by accident.Short-term speculative participants, meanwhile, don’t seem to have had a fruitful time in trying to play the fatiguing myriad news headlines and endless deadlines that have come and gone. The latest and supposedly final deadline, is next Tuesday — December 1 — which leaves just one month for a deal to be ratified on both sides of the Channel. We expect to a deal to materialize at the last minute, just as the withdrawal agreement was seemingly pulled out of the hat at the ultimate minute a year ago. There may even be a fudged extension.Pressure on the UK government is intense. US president-elect Biden warned London that the scope for a deal with the US would be compromised if there is a return of a hard border on Ireland — which is what could happen in a no-deal scenario (the UK government would have the choice between maintaining a free-flowing border on Ireland at the price of breaking up the border integrity of the UK, and possible protests and even violence from loyalists, or breaking the EU withdrawal agreement, which would result in a hard Irish land border).A leaked Whitehall document warns of a “perfect storm” of chaos in the event of a no-deal in the Covid-19 era. There are also pressures on the other side of the Channel to reach an accord. While French President Macron has political incentive to put up a show of fighting over fishing rights, he is not likely to carry through on his threat to veto any deal as other key EU states don’t see the UK’s position on fishing as being unreasonable. France and other nations, and the UK, also need to maintain good relations for security and many other practical reasons.As for the market impact of a deal, much will depend on how narrow the deal is. The narrower it is, the bigger the negative impact on both the UK and EU’s terms of trade positions will be on January 1, particularly the UK’s.Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.Please note that times displayed based on local time zone and are from time of writing this report.Click HERE to access the full HotForex Economic calendar.Want to learn to trade and analyse the markets?

    • Those who take quick and payday loans and refuse to pay them back are now hooked.   Normally, it is not a good thing to go into debt unless that is your last resort. We know that people are fond of borrowing and they seriously hate paying it back. Even when it comes to paying back what was borrowed, your creditor will become your enemy. Such is the nature of human beings.   Debtors don’t want to return money even when they eventually have means of repayment. If anyone borrows money and returns it, it means the person has a Godly spirit in him.   If people ponder the power of compound interest, they would stay away from loans. If you pay 1.33% or 1.79% interest per month on a loan, you will need to pay back roughly 16% or 20% per annum. And this will begin to compound as long as you don’t pay.   Most borrowers who are now in trouble have realized that the interest rates are eventually higher than the capitals borrowed. They realize that the creditors are using an indirect way to enslave borrowers (go and work for me, bring back the capital plus profits).   The banks themselves know that business environment is very tough and are now indirectly asking people to work with or spend the banks’ funds and bring the funds plus profits back to them. Many borrowers really have poor mentality and they don’t know the gravity of what they’re putting themselves into.   If a bank could lend out 1 billion USD per annum, it would reap a return of 150 million USD (at least on paper). Do you think they will forget about you if you owe them even a small amount?   Loans without collateral are now popular. But your collateral is your BVN – unless you don’t want to operate accounts again in the country.   I have heard people saying” Don’t pay to my Access Bank account again, but pay into my UBA bank account.” “Don’t send that cash into my GTBank account again, but send it to Zenith Bank.” It’s like postponing the evil day.   Ti iya o ba i tii je eniyan, iya nri nkan panu lowo ni (Yoruba adage). I literally means: If Suffering has not come to attack you, it means Suffering is currently busy with something. If you think you can avoid payment by abandoning the account you used to borrow money, you’re only postponing the evil day.   They cannot come for you when your debt is small, but the debt will begin to compound and compound till it would make sense for them to come for you.   BAD NEWS FOR DEBTORS CBN has given banks permission to deduct from funds a debtor has in another bank account. For example, if you borrow quick loans from FCMB and you abandon your FCMB account and you are now operating another account with First Bank, FCMB can make a request to First Bank, and the money you owed will be deducted once or gradually from your account at First Bank, without your permission.   Would you now keep money at home, so that bad boys will come to you to take their dues?   Borrowing isn’t a good thing, no matter how plausible it looks.   Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/
