Daytraders discussion, ideas and strategy sharing (TA+FA)
TA that I use constantly and find working for a bit over a year:
fibo retrace (when bigger picture doesn't change)
psychological levels (1.20 mark, round numbers)
supply and demand levels (you gotta get used to them, but they are decent)
FA principles that I constantly use and find immensely useful to always keep in mind:
central bank policy and what they are watching for at the moment
current rates for what the currencies you are following
the different inflations what the currencies you are following (vanila and core cpi/pce for the $USD)
general growth trends (jobs, housing etc. for $USD)
a forex calendar, and a basic understand of each data point
forex live or similar websites
Trading techniques and strategies: I used to sell EURUSD at retracements due to high central bank policy divergence, good USA data and pretty bad Euro Zone data. Used a high SL because of high conviction and never actually had a losing day. After the holiday I will be starting to trade once again. I was thinking about simply looking for decent conviction trades and just take em all with a 1:1 risk:reward ratio and see how it goes in a day trader's time frame (intra day). Both FA and TA traders and mutts like myself and every type of trader are welcome to share and give constructive criticism to any idea or strategy or just share your strategy! EDIT: Here are a few free websites that I use: Calendars:
investing: http://www.investing.com/economic-calenda -Different format, includes more data points but misses some meetings. Displays importance grading. Forecasts are usually more on point than FF's. Also contains historic data points.
Forex live: best for last! The news are released and updated fairly real time, during big releases they come out with the story+analyzed story within minutes. It's a realtime feed so you won't be refreshing the page to get updated.
http://orders.forexlive.com/ -Where you can expect to find orders and option expiry. They don't tell you how much money there is at certain levels, but for a free, account free website, it's pretty good.

Terminology/Acronyms: www.forexlive.com/ForexJargon - Common terms and acronyms FAQ: I need to exchange money, how do I do it? This isn’t what this sub is for. Your best bet is using your bank or an online exchange service. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee. I have money in one currency and need to exchange it into another sometime in the future, should I wait? Don’t ask us this. We speculate intraday in FX and shouldn’t be relied on to tell you what’s best for you. Exchange the money when you need it. I have an FX account, should I start trading demo or live? This is highly debatable. You should definitely demo trade until you have mastered how to use the trading platform on desktop and mobile. After that it’s up to you. Many think that the psychology of trading live vs demo trading is massively different. So it may pay to learn to trade live. Just be warned that most FX traders lose almost their entire first account so start with a low affordable balance. What’s money management? Money management is a form of risk management and is arguably the most important aspect of your trading when it comes to long term survival. You should always enter trades with a stop loss - the distance of the stop allows you to calculate how large of a percent of your account balance will be lost if your trade stops out. You can run a monte carlo simulation to figure out the risk of having a number of trades go against you in a row to drain your account. The general rule is that you should only risk losing 1-4% of your account per trade entered. More on this here: www.investopedia.com/articles/forex/06/fxmoneymgmt.asp www.swing-trade-stocks.com/money-management.html What about automated trading? Retail FX traders have been known to program “Expert Advisors” (EAs) to automate trading. It’s generally advisable to stay away from that until you’re very experienced. Never buy an EA from a developer because the vast majority of them are scams. What indicators are best? That’s up to you to test and find out. Many in this forum dislike oscillating indicators since they fail to capture the essence of what moves price. With experience you will discover what works best for you. In my experience indicators that are most popular with professional traders are those that provide trading “levels” such as pivot points, fibonacci, moving averages, trendlines, etc. What timeframe should I trade? Price action can vary in different timeframes. In longer term timeframes the price action and fundamentals are much more clear. Unfortunately it would take a very long time to figure out whether or not what you’re doing is successful on longer timeframes. In shorter timeframes you can often tell very quickly if what you’re doing is profitable. Unfortunately there’s a lot more “noise” on these levels which can prove deceptive for those trying to learn. Therefore the best bet is to use a multi-timeframe analysis, working from top-down to come up with trades. Should I trade using fundamental analysis (FA) of technical analysis (TA)? This is a long standing argument in these forums and elsewhere. I’ll settle it here - you should have an understanding of both. Yes there are traders who blindly ignore one of the other but a truly well rounded trader should understand and implement both into the analysis. The market is driven in the longer term through FA. But TA is necessary to give traders a place to enter and exit trades from a psychological risk/reward standpoint. I’ve heard trading Binary Options is an easy way to make money? The general advice is to stay away from binaries. The structure of binary options is so that when you lose the broker wins. This incentive has created a very scammy industry where there are few legitimate binary options brokers. In addition in order to be profitable in binaries you have to win 55-65% of the time. That’s a much higher premium over spot FX. Am I actually exchanging currencies? Yes and no. Your broker handles spot FX is currency pairs. Although they make an exchange at the settlement date they treat your position in your account as a virtual currency pair. Think of it like a contract where you can only buy or sell it as a pair. In this sense you are always long one currency while short another. You are merely speculating that one currency will appreciate or depreciate vs another. Why didn't my order fill? Even if price appears to cross over a line on your chart it does not guarantee a fill. Different charting platforms chart different prices - some chart the bid price, some the ask price and some the midpoint price. To fill a limit order price needs to cross your limit's price plus the spread at the time that it is crossing. If it does not equal or exceed the spread then it will not fill. Be wary that in general spreads are not fixed. So what may fill at one time may not at another.
