Hello all - DuncanForex with another trade idea. With NFP coming in strong on Friday and USD gaining strength - the question is: Is this short term sentiment and will the FED support further USD strength or will the FED still suggest a rate cut and in turn will USD weaken,? Therefore, the recent price action being a stop loss hunt before heading higher quite...
You don't have to follow all our signals by the book. Forex signals are trade ideas, so it's best to consider them as such and whenever possible to increase your profits. Stop loss and take profit levels are given in order to frame the range in which the market is expected to move based on a specific trend. If your trading strategy points to further gains, don’t limit your potential... extend your take profit (TP) target or remove it all together to maximize profits.
The USD is mixed As North American traders enter for the day, the CHF is the strongest. The NZD is the weakest currency and the USD is mixed.  Today the Fed chair will be testifying at 10 AM ET. The contents of his testimony will be released at 8:30 AM ET.  The Bank of Canada will also announce their current interest rate decision. They are expected to keep rates unchanged at 1.75%. The FOMC meeting minutes from their last meeting will be released at 2 PM ET. 
One strategy that is a simple forex trading system is following the daily or weekly trend. Review the daily and weekly charts and find a trend that seems well supported and get in. The one caveat about this particular type of trading is that your moves that look small on the chart can span 100's of pips. This means that you need to trade small. Use a conservative allocation when you buy in and allow your trade to develop a bit. Set a reasonable stop and plan out a target. Beginners find this strategy easy because they don't need to watch the market constantly, they can trade when they have time.

One of the great benefits of our Platinum signals is that you can enter later on a signal/deal (as opposed to VIP signals which when the signal comes out you have to be fast and need to enter into a deal at the moment). This advantage is expressed in the Pending orders we use, where there is considerable time waiting for the price to reach the level of order activation. This way, even later, you can place an order and win over it.

While Forex trading can feel complicated, it's something that anyone with patience and the ability to learn from their mistakes can gain some skill at over time. It takes some persistence. The system is designed in a way that frustrates most people. You need to step back, keep an eye on the big picture, and trade small, at least in the beginning. It's also smart to avoid those "100 percent accurate forex trading systems" on the internet until you have some experience under your belt.

The forex market is always moving. 24 hours a day, 6 days a week. Although the most active forex trading times are specific, the forex market is always moving at least a little. Depending on what you like to trade, you can pick and choose your time. Most day trading strategies revolve around forex technical analysis, which has its positive points. The market can be very technical, and if you have a sharp eye and a plan, you can catch it and take some profit from it.

Avviso esplicito sui rischi: Il trading degli strumenti finanziari e/o di criptovalute comporta alti rischi, compreso quello di perdere in parte, o totalmente, l’importo dell’investimento, e potrebbe non essere adatto a tutti gli investitori. I prezzi delle criptovalute sono estremamente volatili e potrebbero essere influenzati da fattori esterni come eventi finanziari, normativi o politici. Il trading con margine aumenta i rischi finanziari.

Avant de décider de négocier des instruments financiers ou des crypto-monnaies, vous devez être pleinement informé des risques et des frais associés aux transactions sur les marchés financiers, examiner attentivement vos objectifs de placement, votre niveau d'expérience et votre tolérance pour le risque, et faire appel à des professionnels si nécessaire.


Leveraged trading in foreign currency or off-exchange products on margin carries significant risk and may not be suitable for all investors. We advise you to carefully consider whether trading is appropriate for you based on your personal circumstances. Forex trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits. We recommend that you seek independent advice and ensure you fully understand the risks involved before trading.


Little happened across the FX board these last few days, with a US holiday in the middle and a scarce macroeconomic calendar exacerbating the lack of action. Such picture changed Friday with the release of the US Nonfarm Payroll report. Ahead of it, the market was convinced that the global economic slowdown would mean easy money coming. Stocks soared, with Wall Street flirting with record highs, while safe-haven assets benefited from those fears, and government bond yields fell to multi-year lows.

I showed this fractal several times lately, since it has been a nice guideline so far. The red circles are not really the same though. Back then we had a good double bottom, this time we don't but have been moving bit similar up nonetheless. The right shoulder is very different this time compared to 2017, that one was completed much faster and the rally was much...

Shortened as “Vol.” in the economic calendar and depicted as yellow/orange/red bars, the volatility is an indicator of the expected impact of a data on currencies. Shall a bar be red and long, market observers expect this data to have great probability to move the Forex market. Shall this bar be yellow and short, the probability is viewed as low. In orange, we’re just in between.
On this chart you can see comments from my latest ideas where people claim the opposite of me. That means they think altcoins will not rise anymore. I also do not want you to make fun of the comments. Because if we are honest, not everyone can win. If I want to make profit, then most of the people have to have a different opinion than me - that's how it works in...
Successful trade talks could rescue a lot and give the positive cycle another year or two. A Brexit deal would add to the momentum. Failure of trade talks will I think precipitate a recession. A no deal Brexit would probably push the EU and UK into recession but not the rest of the world, if the trade talks are solved. If we get a no-deal Brexit and failed trade....it will be, as the Chinese supposedly said but never did... May you live in interesting times.
Note: Welcome back for some more chart analysis practice. As you know, I am not taking this trade in real life, and I have not back-tested this particular strategy on the USDCAD, so I really don't know how this type of trading strategy will work on this currency pair. That being said, never trade anything you haven't back-tested on your own. Don't trade a strategy...

Divulgation des risques: Négocier des instruments financiers et/ou des crypto-monnaies implique des risques élevés, notamment le risque de perdre tout ou partie de votre investissement, et cela pourrait ne pas convenir à tous les investisseurs. Les prix des crypto-monnaies sont extrêmement volatils et peuvent être affectés par des facteurs externes tels que des événements financiers, réglementaires ou politiques. La négociation sur marge augmente les risques financiers.
