Fibonacci Scalping Forex

Recommended Posts

Do you trade the Eurodollar? I use a 233 tick chart alongside a 15-min. I enter at the first 233t setup at a 50% Fibonacci levels using an 8 pip stop. Does anyone else trade in similar fashion? It's always interesting comparing entry's as there's a million ways to skin a cat.

 

I attached a small photo below, long entry of 2934 (1 pip in front of the 50).

So Tim,

 

You entered after the "Broke prior high andpierced oppsing"?

Do you enter immediately, or let it retrace a bit.

What kind of spread do you have?

 

When we trade to a 15-min 50% cleanly, I watch for the opposing 15-min to either break or pierce, then allow it to retrace to the next (micro) 50%. As for a spread, I'm trading the futures contract EuroFX typically 6E on most platforms, extremely high liquidity.

Ah, that explains my confusion, I am hard wired to think spot.

Thanks

 

If you haven't traded forex futures I would highly recommend checking it out. The euro is incredibly liquid and there is relatively no slippage. It is also extremely technical, which is why these levels that I use for entry have such high participation. The Emini S&P and Eurodollar make for a great set of trading vehicles.

The Euro FX futures contract is not the EuroDollar contract. These are two different things.

Technically you are correct Yan, I just refer to it as one in the same sometimes because they track the same thing. If you pull up EUR/USD along side 6E (Euro Futures) you can see the correlation.

Yea, when people say EuroDollar for the Euro futures it is always confusing. Eurodollar is completely different than the Euro Futures. Also, 6E is very much NOT liquid.....EC is the contract that is very liquid. Look at the volume. Also look at the trades made...most, if not all the 6E is computer based on spread's. You can have bids and asks moving like crazy, but no fills on the actual market. I think if you trade the Euro Futures, you need to trade EC, otherwise go to FX for lower risk if you don't have the money.

 

 

With that said, I don't think anyone can trade the EC without using Fibs. The first 50% is usually good for at least a few pips, if not for at least 20 pips. The major 50% area's like daily 50% is the strongest, but even the small fibs work.

Just so you know Eurodollar is an "interest rate"....has nothing to do with the Euro Currency

 

"Eurodollars are time deposits denominated in U.S. dollars at banks outside the United States, and thus are not under the jurisdiction of the Federal Reserve. Consequently, such deposits are subject to much less regulation than similar deposits within the U.S., allowing for higher margins. The term was originally coined for U.S. dollars in European banks, but it expanded over the years to its present definition: a U.S. dollar-denominated deposit in Tokyo or Beijing would be likewise deemed a Eurodollar deposit. There is no connection with the euro currency or the euro zone."

Mr. T

 

Lets just call it the 6E, I'm cool :cool: with that. I'm wondering about time, You said, "I use a 233 tick chart alongside a 15-min." So I'm assuming you're measuring the "peaks & valleys" on the 15m chart, and then transferring those Fib levels to your 233 tick chart. Then, focusing in on the scalp trade signals generated on the tick chart,,,, meanwhile looking over your shoulder on occasion to the 15m chart to keep an eye on the "long(er) term trend/action."

 

My question of time is this, when do you start? Does it matter? Do you begin a session in sync with the Frankfurt, London or US open? Or can you just jump in and GO? This seems a bit intense for me, but on average, how many trades might you enter in a day?

 

Sorry for all the questions, but you did "stick it out there." ;)

Ya as I said above I know I misspoke about EUR/USD and Eurodollar. EUR/USD is spot versus Euro Futures 6E. Euro futures are extremely liquid, rarely do I ever have slippage on the futures.

6E the mini contract you don't have slippage?? I don't see how that is possible. There is even slippage in the big EC contract.

No, I trade the Euro FX 6E contract and if I limit 1.450 I get 1.450, if my stop is at 1.458 I get filled at 1.458. In rare cases I've been filled on short covering for a pip worse than my stop, but that's the max slippage I've ever had 1 pip, otherwise no slippage on the Euro Futures. I know the E7 the Micro Euro has a lot of slippage because it's not as liquid.

 

I'm on Infinity Futures.

Hi Tim,

 

I see you are trading the first retrace after a bounce of the channel's midband,

If you keep an eye on the higher price wave it is a good little earner

Of course no slippage on a limit order. But I thought you were speaking of the mini contract in the Euro. The 6E is actually the EC ticker symbol, so same thing. I just looked on the CME contract page.

 

However, with EC/6E you still get slippage of a tick with a market order. All market orders slip a tick usually due to the bid/ask.

 

Either way, I like to trade that way on the Euro...good job, keep it up :beer:

Ya I'm not sure Chippy, like I said if I place my stop mkt order at -8 I'm filled at -8.

Guest YanCanCook

surprisingly, there is mostly no slippage on stop mkt orders on 6E. The only time I've seen slippage on a stop mkt order is when I've been so wrong that the mkt takes out the stop very fast. otherwise for the majority of trades when the market moves at a reasonable pace to take out the stop, there is zero slippage on market orders. The same is true on buy stop mkt orders, except you will see slippage of 1 tick there quite frequently. The reason is simple, If you have put a buy stop mkt and the market hits is very quickly like you want it to to make sure you have a real movement, you will mostly have a slippage of 1 tick.

 

So in any situation using a stop mkt order, when you are really wrong or really right in a big way you will encounter slippage on 6E. Any other situation using stop mkt you won't. If you choose to just entry with a regular mkt order, you will mostly have slippage of course so even this is less than you would expect.

      Hi GUYS, Happy Wednesday!
      I'd like to share daily forex analysis from Followme, hope this information helps your trading.
      Today, Let's focus on AUD and NZD.
      AUDUSD is trading at 0.6761; the instrument is moving below Ichimoku Cloud, thus indicating a descending tendency. The markets could indicate that the price may test the cloud’s downside border at 0.6765 and then resume moving downwards to reach 0.6635. Another signal to confirm further descending movement is the price’s rebounding from the descending channel’s upside border. However, the scenario that implies further decline may be canceled if the price breaks the cloud’s upside border and fixes above 0.6825. In this case, the pair may continue growing towards 0.6905.

      So I've been 18 for about 4 months, since I turned 18 I started up an account, and basically thought I was doing amazing because of beginners luck, put in some of my savings and managed to do well, some days I would make £200, one day I even made £900, after time I lost my profits and made a loss as well. I've realised I need to spend the time analysing the market and making technical judgments. I'm trying to read more and spend a lot of my time looking at the charts. is there any advice people can give me. and is making 5% a week a realistic goal to set myself? before anyone assumes that im looking for a get rich quick scheme, im certainly not, I see every loss ive made as a lesson and ensure that I learn from each mistake I make. 
      any advice about indicators, strategies, how to analyse the market, or even analysing earning reports would help me.

      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.

    • MASTER TRADER JOE ROSS PASSES ON Dear Traders, We are sad to inform you of the passing of Master Trader Joe Ross on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 87. He went peacefully doing what he loved, by taking care of Loretta, his wife of 62 years of marriage and teaching his students from every continent how to trade. Joe has always been a free spirit and loved the trading world being his own boss. He quickly learned that teaching others was his true passion. The joy of educating those about a system in which he had true confidence and to see others come into their own. That was his greatest pleasure. He was proud to be a devoted Christian and combined spirituality with trading. Our condolences to our traders and students for the loss of a mentor and close friend, some would even go as far as saying a “father-figure” and he wore that title proudly. Master Trader Joe Ross’ passing came upon us unexpectedly and suddenly. Again, we would like to send our condolences to those who lost a mentor and a friend. Joe, you will forever be in our hearts. Who is Joe Ross? Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of “The Law of Charts™” and the “Traders Trick Entry™.” Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 80’s caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach. Joe Ross has written twelve major books and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. His file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent is huge: As one student, a successful trader, wrote: “Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading.” Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. He is listed in “Who’s Who in America.” After 5 decades of trading and investing, Joe Ross still tutors, teaches, writes, and trades regularly. Joe is an active and integral part of Trading Educators. He is the founder and contributor of the company’s newsletter Chart Scan™. “Master Traders Joe Ross was one of the most eclectic traders in the world. And he remains one of the few best mentors I have, alongside, Dr. Van. K. Tharp (may he live long), and one or two others. His teachings and insights into the markets have contributed to making me who I am today. He also talks about the spiritual side of trading, concluding that trading is no sin.” – Azeez M. “The trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader. He explained to me that his material will never go out of date, only the technology. Recently, we updated several of his hardback books into eBooks and he was right. From making trades over the phone to the “pit” then to opening an online account, my how things have changed. But he is correct about his methods, they will continue to apply to the markets regardless of how technolgy advances.” – Martha Ross-Edmunds (Joe’s daughter) Joe Ross’ Trading Philosophy: “Teach our students the truth in trading — teach them how to trade,” and “Give them a way to earn while they learn — realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader.”   IN MEMORIAM: Joe Ross (RIP)   Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • BITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTIONBITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTION Azeez Mustapha 14 October 2021 | Updated: 14 October 2021 New reports from Glassnode show that despite the recent price surge in Bitcoin (BTC), long-term holders have shown no intention to liquidate and realize profits yet. The blockchain analytics provider also revealed that the percentage of BTC supply held for at least three months reached 85%, a new all-time high. Citing data from Glassnode, famous Chinese crypto analyst Colin Wu illustrated the recent behavior of Bitcoin holders and their attitude towards the benchmark cryptocurrency. The analyst detailed that the percentage of long-term holders that have not moved their coins in over ten years stands at 12.3%. These tokens are deemed dormant for this reason. The analyst further noted that the percentage of long-term holders that have not transferred their coins between two to three years and three to five years stands at 10% and 12.26%, respectively. Finally, the highest percentage of long-term holders were those who have refused to move their coins between the last six months to twelve months, standing at 19.5%. That said, 85.14% of BTCs have not exchanged hands for at least three months, a new record high. In July, Bitcoin struggled to keep its head above the $30,000 mark. Today, it has almost doubled this number, but investors remain steadfast in holding their coins. Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — October 14 As predicted in our previous analysis, BTC witnessed a sharp correction to the $55,000 – $54,000 pivot axis from the $57,500 level over the last 48 hours. This correction found immediate support from the $54,000 level, which triggered a rebound to a new five-month high at $58,500 earlier today. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart While the price currently rests around $57,500, we expect a bull run to the $59,000 resistance over the coming hours and days. Meanwhile, our resistance levels are at $58,000, $59,000, and $60,000, and our key support levels are at $56,700, $56,000, and $55,000.

    • Date : 15th October 2021. Market Update – October 15 – Stronger equities dampened the safe-havens! Q3 earnings season has gotten off to a strong start, with big banks largely shooting the lights out on revenues and earnings. Incoming data was constructive as well, with jobless claims coming in at pandemic lows, while the rate of PPI growth slowed. All 11 S&P sectors are higher. Bulls are in control, both in the bond market and on Wall Street. – Overlooked the hawkish Fed implications from the record strength in PPI and the lowest claims readings since before the pandemic. Yields declined and Treasuries are in the green on short covering and dip buying, recovering from the recent aggressive selloff. US Treasury yield has lifted 1.8 bp to 1.53%. China: will loosen restrictions on home loans and boost lending & bank added enough medium term funds to keep liquidity in the system steady. Equities up. JPN225 managed a 1.6% gain and US futures are also higher, led by a 0.4% rise in the USA100. Oil lifted above $81.99. – Prices quickly backed up after a larger than expected stock build in the US. Improved market sentiment, which has lifted global stocks, commodity prices and bond yields, is also weighing on the safe-haven Dollar. FX markets – USD dropped, Yen declined. EURUSD retests 1.1600 mark, Cable at 1.3689, USDJPY touched 114.16. European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is slightly higher, US Treasury futures slightly in the red, as stock futures move higher in both Europe and North America after a good session for equities across Asia overnight. Market sentiment improved and GER30 and UK100 futures are currently up 0.4% and 0.3% respectively, while a 0.4% rise in the USA100 is leading US futures. EGB yields had dropped back markedly yesterday, but in the UK money markets are still bracing for an earlier than expected lift off on rates, which ironically is actually helping long rates to come down. Today – Today’s data calendar is unlikely to change the overall picture, with only eurozone trade data for August and some final HICP readings on the agenda. Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.60%) Breached 80.55. Up for 7 days in a row. Currently faster MAs keep pointing up, MACD signal line is at 0 & histogram trending higher. RSI at 82 & Stochastic at 94 but both sloping down, all indicating further upwards move in the medium term but possible pullback in the short term. H1 ATR 0.123, Daily ATR 0.810.
