Forex Amazing Profits From Momentum Position Trading

When the market explodes out of a channel, either rising above resistance or dropping below support, use the momentum technique with the MACD. This is generally a position trade, lasting several days or even a month. While you’ll pay a small overnight renewal fee (with most brokers) to keep the trade active, these trades generally bring in enough pips to make holding the position well worth your while.
Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) is a popular indicator that works well in momentum markets. MACD (pronounced mac-d) plots three different exponential moving averages, and displays them as two lines of different colors that criss-cross atop the chart itself or within the window below it. One line is the MACD itself; the other is called the signal or trigger line.
The MACD also plots a histogram, which is a sort of bar chart in the window below the currency pair’s price chart. On the MACD histogram, there is a line that signals the zero point, called the centerline, and the bar…

Why You Should Trade Forex Over Other Investments

Everyone has heard of stocks and shares, probably even the futures market, but trading the FOREX (Foreign Currency Exchange, or FX) market is a relatively new phenomenon. Until recently, FOREX was the domain of the banking fraternity (large banks can trade billions of dollars daily), and the elite in financial and business circles. But now it is possible for the average person to be a part of this incredible – and very profitable – way of making a living, thanks to the personal computer and an internet connection.

More and more astute internet entrepreneurs are shunning the traditional financial markets and turning to FOREX trading. They know that it is possible to earn a full-time income from…

Forex Currency Trading - Frequently Asked Questions

What is FOREX?
FOREX stands for the FOReign EXchange market, which is an international financial market where currencies are traded. The foreign exchange market began in the 1970s and is now the largest financial market in the world, with an average daily turnover of US$1.9 trillion. That's thirty times the amount of daily activity on all of the US stock exchanges.
Each Forex trade involves simultaneously buying one currency and selling another. For example, if you think that the Euro will rise relative to the dollar, you would place a Euro/Dollar trade. The forex system would then buy the Euro and sell an equivalent amount of the Dollar. Then, when you want to close your position, you would place a Dollar/Euro trade. This would buy the Dollar and sell the Euro. If the Euro had risen against the Dollar, you would make a profit, but if it had fallen relative to the Dollar you would make a loss.
What currencies are traded?
Most of the world's currencies are available to trade, but t…

How To Start Trading The Forex Market Part 7

HOW DO Economic Events impact Global Currencies:
When I asked several traders about their thoughts about using fundamental analysis as a part of their trading decisions, I have received two opposite responses.
RESPONSE of Trader A
Fundamentals that you read about are typically useless as the market has already discounted the price. I am looking at (1) the long term trend, (2) the current chart pattern and (3) identifying a good entry point to buy or to sell.
RESPONSE of Trader B
I almost always trade on a market view. I don't trade simply on technical information alone. I use technical analysis and it is terrific, but I can't initiate or hold a position unless I understand why the market should move.
There is a great deal of hype attached to technical analysis by some technicians who claim that it predicts the future.
Technical analysis tracks the past; it does not predict the future. You have to use your own intelligence to draw conclusions about what the past activity of some trade…
