Best Technical Indicator for Day Trading? 👊
 
07:41
What is the best indicator for day trading? PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Best indicator for intraday trading? Is it moving averages, stochastics, RSI...? This is my opinion of course and I will select just one indicator. For me it is the VWAP - volume weight average price. I think this is the best indicator for day trading. The VWAP is like a moving average but it is based on the volume traded. A regular moving average doesn't take into account the volume. But if there is more volume done at a specific price level we need to give it more weighting... Why is it the best indicator for day trading? On a trending day you are likely to get a trending VWAP... assuming a strong uptrend day as price starts to come down the very first touch (test) of the VWAP you will get a bounce. In other words it acts as support in an uptrend and the reason for this is that many algos are looking at this and this is considered a value area. I've made some good trades basing myself on this. Another way to use VWAP - if a market is swing trading the VWAP will look a bit like a straight line. What you can do is to market the distance between the high and the VWAP - very often if we are in a rotation environment we can do 75 pips to the downside... I don't know exactly why but I suspect its again these mean reversion algos.

Best Trading Strategy if You Have a Small Trading Account / Low Capital? 😐😉

★ How to Trade with a Small Trading Account! ★ Trade at InterTrader http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/intertrader/intertrader.html ★ If you found value in watching this video, PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can do more! Trade Sensibly: Spreadbets/CFDs/forex trading is high risk! How can you trade/invest efficiently with with low capital? What's the best trading strategy for people with low capital? If you only have GBP250 or USD300, what's the best strategy going forward? This is a very common problem; in a perfect world you have a large amount of capital to trade but fortunately these days most online brokers also accommodate small traders. But what's the best way to use this money to learn to trade? The worst you can do is to utilise as much leverage as you can and trade with the biggest trade size possible. You might have a run of good trades but on average you won't last more than 10 trades. You might double or triple your money and then lose it all or you'll lose it straightaway. That is pure gambling. What you want to do is to make the money last as long as possible to help you learn the most. How do you get the best returns in terms of education? First open an account with a broker that allows you to trade with GBP250. You want to trade a strategy that has a long time to play out. Even though I'm a day trader and I love day trading I wouldn't day trade if I were limited to a very small balance. I would look at swing trading, holding positions for multiple weeks or months and I would trade the smallest size possible. And this is what you want to do - you want to trade with real money as that means you have some skin in it and there's some meaning to your trading.

How to Use Multiple Time Frame Analysis to Find Better Entry and Exit Points 📈

What is Multi TimeFrame Analysis? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! You might have heard of it, you might have not heard about it - what is timeframe analysis and how can we use it to become better traders. How To Perform A Multiple Time Frame Analysis Multi Timeframe analysis means that we don't limit ourselves to one time frame to place a trade. We check the next higher time frame so as to gain a better perspective on the prevailing trend and then utilise the lower time frame to make our entry. It basically means taking a top-down approach based on the timeframe we're trading. We can start with a daily chart and we look at that chart. Is it an uptrend or downtrend? Where are the key levels - what is the structure of the chart? Then we step down to a lower timeframe. You could even go down to a 4-hourly chart and then you do the same thing. You're going down and you're analysing the chart as you go down. What is the point of that? We're doing that because we're trying to find something that fits the criteria on every timeframe. This helps us not lose sight of the bigger picture. A short that might look great on a 15 minute chart might not look so great on a 4 hourly chart if the wider market is in bullish territory.

How to Calculate Position Sizing & Risk Per Trade - Any Trade, Any Market ✔️
 
06:40
A Trader's Guide to Position Sizing http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Trade-risk-size.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Most traders want to trade in bigger size and make more money but care has to be taken. If you have GBP10,000 of capital, if you risk 2% then you risk GBP200 per trade. If your stop loss is 50 pips then you can trade at GBP4 [GBP200 divided by 50] per point. Always work from the market conditions at the time and don't decide the stake/trade amount before working out the stop loss. If you use a tighter stop you could be simply increasing the risk as there's more likelihood that your stop would be taken out. N.B: Always work back from your stop, not the other way round.

Trading Without a Stop Loss: Why Some Professionals Don't Use Stops ☂️

Trading without Stop Losses. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! No Stop Forex Trading? No Stop Loss Forex Trading Strategy. Why some tradres quit using stop loss orders and why many professionals don't use stops. Trade without stoploss, think out of the box, can you? The Arguments for not using a stop loss... We probably know that stops loss orders are very useful for risk management. We talked about the best ways to place them, how far away they should be, how we structure them...etc But what about not using a stop loss at all? Am I recommending this? Not necessarily but I wanted to discuss it 1) Probability of touch and probability of close. The probability of touch is twice the probability of close. 2) Markets go stop hunting. There is a general liquidity hunt in the markets and this happens. 3) You can never be perfect. We can rarely be perfect with our entries - it may be more dynamic than just buying, stop and out. 4) You can control risk with trade size. If no position is going to damage you regardless of the outcome, perhaps you are better off not using stops. 5) Many professionals don't use stops - they are always evaluating as opposed to utilising stops.

4 Continuation Chart Patterns You Should Know As a New Trader. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! If you're new to trading this is the kind of stuff that is well worth learning. 4 Continuation Chart Patterns You Should Know. Reversals happens when a market is pushing up and its going to turn away. A Continuation is when a market is pushing up and it will form a pattern to suggest that there will be a continuation of that move. 1) Rectangles - a rectangle is a continuation pattern in that it confirms that the underlying trend is likely to continue. This is a broad kind of move where you've got a nice push higher which forms a rectangle kind of pattern. It is basically an acceptance of price at a new level after the price has moved up. 2) Wedges - Wedges are another type of continuation pattern. This is when we have a push up and then we have price converging to a narrow point. A bullish wedge will form in an uptrend, as the price trades inside converging trendlines. The converging trendlines are a sign that sellers are attempting to push the price lower but failing due to buyers coming in. In the end the buyers take control and the price breaks thru the upper trend line, indicating a resumption of the uptrend. 3) Flags - you have a rectangle of price formed after you've had a drive up in price. 4) Triangle - similar kind of thing but its broader. Ascending triangles have a flat upper trend line while descending triangles have a flat lower trend line Trading the Rising and Falling Wedge Patterns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKKX2lBr4DE How to Trade the Ascending or Rising Wedge Chart Pattern https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5f1oa9jkaOE How to Trade the Descending or Falling Wedge 💡 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYQASgotWKM How to Spot the Bull Flag Continuation Pattern 🏯 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuheIquENgk How to Trade a Bearish Flag Pattern like a Pro 👍 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFtr50Dp3pA How to Trade Bullish Flag Patterns like a Pro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sch9cXNi-hg How to Trade the Ascending and Descending Triangle Chart Patterns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVE2JUOqhYM How to Trade Symmetrical Triangles like a Pro 💡 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qOlycyxT48 How the Pro's Trade Descending Triangle Chart Pattern 👍 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7_biTmoVxw Best Trend Trading Setups!

Paul Tudor Jones is one of the best traders and fund managers in my book and he has the returns to prove it.

He tried to get on the end of moves and made a lot of money fading extreme trends. - Flexible - Lack of Ego. If you're wrong, you're wrong. Paul had a very high filter process to leave only the stocks he firmly believed in to stay in his portfolio. - Learnt from failure. - Never added to a loser. Don't add to losers because if you're wrong it is going to be devastating. - Risk Management first - Trader Second. At the end of the day it is how good you are with risk control.

Risk control is the most important thing in trading. - Reduce position size during losing streaks. - Paul Tudor Jones only takes high risk - high reward trades Related Videos Paul Tudor Jones - Quotes from a Legendary Trader 👍 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3drWVFKhs8 8 Reasons Paul Tudor Jones is one of the Greatest Traders of All Time 👍 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0ApZRSz3Ho

What is the correct way to draw trend lines? Some traders will argue it has to be very accurate on highs and lows, others will say that as long as its intercepting the most that doesn't matter.

How to Scale Into Trades: 4 Rules for Scaling into a Trade 👍

4 Rules for Scaling into a Trade. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/adding-winning-positions.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! How to Scale In to Positions. Scaling into a trade; what is it and what are my 4 golden rules for doing it? I like scaling into positions but I also like scaling out of trades. The benefit of scaling into a trade is that when you know you have a good opportunity to take a trade; you either go all in at a particular price in which case you need to have a stop point due to risk management and sometimes that's the right way to go OR you can scale into a trade and we'll explain the process of scaling into trades in this video. How to Scale Into Winning Trades: 1) Define your zone - this is the area where you're still keen on buying that stock or forex pair or index..etc 2) Plan your sizing. You either do standard same position sizing all the way down or you do a variation of that perhaps start big at the beginning and smaller size towards the end or vice-versa. 3) Ignore price behaviour. I've struggled with this a lot especially with day trading. When I scaled in I would be so focused on my price behaviour that I would try to second guess the next scale. You just have to be committed to your trading plan. 4) Be strict with your stop. This is another big one because things can get nasty quickly when scaling in. Do you scale into a position when trading, if so, how do you decide how much to scale at each entry?

How To Check If Your Stock Is Under Accumulation ☝

What is accumulation? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/academy/technical-tools.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Accumulation or accumulating stock - what exactly does it mean. In the context of a chart or a market it means that the market or a stock is basing. Long positions are built with no upward stock move. Its a kind of equilibrium point; buyers are potentially accumulating longs at a certain price and sellers aren't becoming so aggressive that it is being pushed back thru the lows. So how can we use accumulation as traders? One obvious way to trade the range independently; shorting highs and buying lows. But there's also another way...

Best Chart Pattern for New Traders 👍

The one setup you must master as a new trader. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE This is the best chart pattern for new traders. If you're starting out this could be a useful pattern - works on all timeframes, works on almost all markets, very easy to look for and it has a reasonable probability of success. The pattern is the flag pattern! It keeps delivering for me, it has a good risk/reward ratio and I simply like the setup. This is useful for both day traders and swing traders. We have a drive up in one direction, pause, and then we have a little congestion at the high. You're buying on a break above the flag (bullish trade) - this would be a bull flag. The flag is the pause.

Buy Low, Sell High - what does it mean? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! A Look at the Buy Low, Sell High Strategy. How do I buy low and sell high? Can you time the markets? Buy Low, Sell High - But what is Low and High? We've all heard this phrase; buy low, sell high - sounds great in principle if we do this everyday but how do we define 'low' and how do we define 'high'? Why? Because one investor's perception of the market and another person's perception of the market might be completely different. One guy might think a stock is a buy, another might think its a short! How do we know what's low and what's high? We can use good old fashioned support and resistance levels. By using support and resistance levels that have been reached a number of times in the past we are ultimately letting the market dictate to us what is low and what is high. High is defined as a level where the price has struggled in the past and low is also defined at a level where the price has struggled in the past to the downside. We can also have trendlines and channels so as to have dynamic support and resistance levels. Related Video: Why is Trading So Hard? Buy Low and Sell Higher.

How To Trade When You Are Afraid of Losing Money: Overcoming Performance Anxiety in Trading 💪

Performance Anxiety in Trading. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Lose-money.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! How to trade when you are afraid of losing money? [trading anxiety, trading stress, trading pressure, pressure to perform, position sizing, nervous] You are coming to a certain point in time in trading - that could be a market open, key data release (say Non-Farm Payrolls), perhaps earnings release on a stock..etc As you are approaching this date something is changing internally in your body that is making you behave differently. Some is almost making you perceive this as a dangerous scenario. As traders we want to be alert enough to be able to perform at the right level. Performance anxiety is on the other hand when we have too much stress; we are going into the open with too much worry about the outcome of that individual trade. That is a bad thing; if we put too much weight on any individual trade then luck comes into play. We want to have the law of numbers to work on our side. So we need to find a way of not being concerned about the loss because if you're worried about mindsets that puts you in a terrible frame of mind. This comes down to position sizing. Also, if you're trading a market that is too volatile then back off or again reduce the position size and widen the stops. A good trading plan has a good risk management structure.

You've done your analysis - now wait! http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Give yourself time to learn, time for experience, and time to wait for opportunities... Don't trade more often if you want to make more profits! Stick to your analysis and trading plan! Once you've done your analysis, many of us struggle with the patience to wait for a trading setup and we sometimes we end up jumping the gun. If we just buy randomly we're just gambling and that is ultimately a losing game in the long run. Many of us unfortunately itch for taking a new trade. This is why we do it - we should aim to structure our trades better both in terms of risk-reward and position size. For instance risking 20 pips to make a 100 pips is much better than a 1:1 risk reward ratio. Ultimately, we're playing the game of odds and consistency and keep trading with the edge on our side knowing that over time it is going to work for us.

What analysing 43 million retail trades teaches us. One retail broker analysed 43 million executions and trades and revealed some of their findings. This is all forex by the way so this is specific to trading currencies. What they found is that on average people trading had 83% chance of losing money over a 12 month period. When traders utilise reward to risk ratio of 1 or more, 50% of traders are profitable after 12 months. Most trades have more than a 50% success rate on their trades. Surprisingly, the percentage of winning trades doesn't appear to make any difference in this study. Most of those that lost money were also overtrading.

10 PIPs a Day Forex Scalping Strategy 🔨

★ 10 PIPs a Day Forex Scalping Strategy ★ Recommended Brokers http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/spreadbetting/compare-spreads.html ★ If you found value in watching this video, PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can do more! 10 PIPs a Day Forex Scalping Strategy. Scalping is a seriously tricky business; your risk:reward ratio is likely to be close to 1:1; the idea is that you are going to have a higher probability of success with each trade you take as opposed to getting the edge from the risk:reward ratio. That means you have to be ultra-disciplined with your stops and exits. Trade this on a 5-minute chart and limit yourself to major forex pairs where your spreads are relatively small. I have two indicators set on the screen; one is the Bollinger Bands set to 20 period (moving average is 20), 2 standard deviations with offset being set to 0. The other indicator is slow Stochastics; percentage K is set at 5, percentage D set at 3 and Smoothing set at 3. The rules are these (taking a short example first). You want to look into taking a short trade when price is above the upper Bollinger Band and the Stochastics are overbought. Then, when you get the next red candle you then take a short on the close of that candle. You put in a 10-pip stop with a 10-pip target. This is supposed to be a trading strategy where the probabiliy of success is good so the risk:reward ratio doesn't need to be high.

08:59
Failed Breakouts - What Are The Signs? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/trading-breakouts.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! 5 Scenarios when a breakout is unlikely to work. There are many traders who like trading breakouts and the payoff when you get it right can be truly great. However, breakouts setups don't always work. I'm going to review 5 scenarios when I consider a breakout is much less likely to work. Is That A False Breakout? Here Are Some Clues. 1) When price is still in a range. I try to filter out breakouts like this because if a range is in a bigger range there is less chance of it being a genuine breakout. 2) When solid resistance is close because there is a good chance that the market might stop there. Of course if there are aggressive movements or a catalyst I might consider this on a case-by-case basis but generally I avoid such setups. 3) When news/data is due - if we have say, non-farm payrolls numbers coming up I'm unlikely to take a breakout trade before that because I know that the majority of people are going to position themselves aggressively after the announcement. 4) When price is greater than ATR (day traders). If we're day trading a market and we are outside the normal parameters I'm more careful about buying breakouts. 5) Known quiet periods - from a day trading perspective this could be lunch times for instance. There is no volume coming in... Related Videos (these are just of the videos we created on breakouts - for more just use the search function on this channel!)

7 risk management ideas from big traders. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Limiting-losses.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! So prop guys, hedge fund managers, bank guys, energy guys - not retail. I like to study great traders and those from big institutions. These 7 risk management ideas are from the big end of the spectrum. So they may not be making judgements just on chart analysis but may have different criteria or directives. 1) Plan before you trade. If you don't have a trading plan, odds are you won't succeed. 2) Control emotions. Again a common theme. Doesn't mean that we should trade like robots. I've talked in the past about the emotional barometer. 3) Be flexible. If you're in your early career you don't want to be flexible at the start. Your job when you start is to be good when executing your plan. 4) Learn to get into the zone. This is an interesting one; the zone being a kind of focused, centred state when you're operating at peak performance. 5) Take time off if necessary. 6) Ask for help. 7) Be decisive.

The trading trap that catches out day traders. This trading trap can wear out the most experienced day traders. I personally hate this trap and nowadays I have a rule that prevents me from getting caught out but I must have given away so much money due to these things. How to Identify and Avoid Traps while Day Trading This is very much a day trading or intraday type of thing but I imagine it can happen to swing traders as well. Price comes to a key level of resistance and we have a decent target up there. So you're excited by the 'easy trade'. Market comes up, price stagnates at the level of resistance, you add to your trade, it goes thru a few ticks and it rolls back. And you end getting stopped out...After a few times of this you start getting frustrated. There are two ways of countering this trap.

How Flash Crash Trader Navinder Singh Sarao Made £90,000-a-Day! 😮
 
07:29
How Sarao spoofed the S&P 500 futures. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE Sarao was trading from his parents house and he ended getting arrested and charged with causing the flash crash on May 6, 2010 when the Dow Jones plunged by 998.5 points on a single day. Navinder Singh Sarao was accused of fraud and market manipulation by the USA Dept. of Justice in particular of having been spoofing the market. Let's examine how Sarao actually made money from spoofing the S&P 500 futures. Navinder Singh Sarao: Reclusive Trader or Criminal Mastermind? Here are the FACTs. Following graduation from Brunel University in 2003 with a computer science degree, Sarao joined the trainee trader programme at Futex, a relatively small trading house. He quickly built a reputation amongst his pals of being a brilliant but reclusive trader. Sarao traded mainly the e-mini S&P futures which are derivatives contracts based on the S&P 500 index of US shares. A colleague recounted how Nav would trade 1,000 to 1,500 contracts at a time. In an e-mail sent to the FCA in 2007 Sarao stated that on a volatile day he would make about $133,000. On quieter days he would make between $45,000 and $70,000. Sarao created an algorithm that would place orders into the market on the sell side and as the market would get close he would automatically cancel these orders. He was spoofing like this a year earlier but then he was placing the orders manually and as the market got close he would manually pull them away. The theory behind spoofing is this. You are placing sell side orders aggressively; people will look at this overhang of supply and will convince people to close their trades as they'll think there are many people wanting to exit. So this would create an artificial depression on price. Other algos might have noticed this and also started selling but Sarao got the blame for the flash crash. During the flash crash Sarao traded 62, 077 lots wtih a notional value of $3.5 billion and he made 879k in profit. The CME actually sent him a warning letter but he shrugged it off.

Stop Moving Your Stop Loss to Breakeven / Profit TOO Soon! What's the Solution? ☝
 
10:58
Moving Stops to Breakeven/Risk Free Trade? Don't do it too soon! http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Should you even set your trades to breakeven? If you do this too aggressively you will end up hurting your own performance. You will end up missing not just losers but also lots of big winners. The problem can arise during drawdowns - you start trading too defensively... even scared. This hinders getting back on track. Quit moving your stop loss (to breakeven) too soon. Let's discuss risk-reward and trade management. So is moving a stop loss to breakeven always a bad idea? Hopefully when you place a trade you have some kind of target profit and stop loss linked with the trade. If a trade moves into profit some traders will jump the gun and move the stop loss immediately and tighten it up (to breakeven) because they don't want to lose that profit. Psychologically I understand why people do this but you need to keep some leeway breathing space in the markets. You are not allowing for the noise in the markets i.e. not allowing the market to oscillating before resuming their trend. In real market conditions we rarely get moves that go from entry to exit in a straight line! You have more instances where the market puts you in doubt whether the trade is really moving in your direction and whether you have more potential opportunity for profit. But if you want multiple times your stake you need to allow the market space for movement. Of course i'm in favour of protecting capital and not giving profits back. So what's the solution? Two ways is using ATR or scaling out or pyramiding..

For about beliefs - you are just looking for good trades. 2) Increasing position size aggressively. I've done this myself and got smacked down on the face several times due to this. 3) Chasing the trade when you have no good risk/reward. We want to get onboard trades but not at any cost. If you can't have a good entry then you have no business being in the trade. 4) No plan - this is a big one. Trading with no plan is no good. You need at least a basic plan - have some risk management in place! 5) Ignoring the trading plan - due to fear of loss you don't close trades because you don't want to crystallise the loss. 6) Being wrong and letting ego keep you wrong. 7) Jumping in with no defined setup. 8) Seeking other people's opinion.

Fade the Move: Counter Trend Trading Strategy. Buying Recoveries after Extreme Declines 👊
 
11:09
Fading the Move! How do you Fade Extremes in Price Safely? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Buying Recoveries after Steep / Extreme Declines. Fading Explosive Moves versus Uptrends. The caveat to that is that of course risk will always be there - we can use stops and manage risk but there's always the possibility that something will go wrong so be aware of that. Here we'll taking about fading extremes in price moves. Of course I don't suggest standing in front of a freight train - if you've got a brutal downswing trend trying to find a point to buy is generally a losing game - it is not an easy thing to do. More often than not a trend lasts long than you expect (and this applies for uptrends as well) and you're just frustrated and annoyed and ultimately you won't get the outcome you want. But here I'm talking about explosive moves that are probably unsustainable. What is the difference between an explosive move and a trending move? A trend will keep chugging along day after day, couple of down days and resume..etc i.e. grinding uptrend. This can be deadly for a volatility trader because if you try to short it, it will grind you out. What I'm talking about though is about explosive moves - you know that at some point you're get a mean reversion to a mean. But a reasonable strategy is to fade those extremes and wait for a pop-up to the mean. Some traders will argue this is dangerous and that you should stick to the trend but this setup can be very rewarding in the right market conditions. But you need good structure and need to be very disciplined here. You might get lucky and get a full reversal. But the real edge is when everyone has a complete disregard for price then you can take the other side of that in the expectation that price might contract back to the mean. If you do this from a day trading perspective you have to be quick as these opportunities don't last long.

The 10 Pips Scalping Strategy for Currency Traders. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/forex/forex-trading.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This is a trading strategy for scalpers, not for swing traders. You can try it out and see if it fits with your style of trading and personality. And perhaps you can find ways to tweak it into ways where it works for you. This is on a one-minute chart; it might work on USD/JPY or GBP/USD. The whole point of this strategy is that we're looking for a 10 pips final target so the market has to be reasonably active. We are looking to trade extreme oscillations on a very short-term basis. The key with any scalping strategy is to be brutally disciplined with your exit. Rules; 1) Short when RSI is greater than 90 2) Long when RSI is less than 10 3) Enter on cross 4) Target = 10 pips 5) Stop = 10 pips or prior extreme The idea of this is that price is stretching in one direction very short-term (indicated by the RSI overbought/RSI oversold condition), starting to roll a bit and then we'll hitting it immediately. If we're wrong we get immediately out.

Dirty Strategies in Algorithmic Trading: Momentum Ignition Strategy ⛏️

Understanding the Momentum Ignition Strategy that some HFT and Hedge Funds/Quants use. What is a Momentum Ignition Algo? We have those algos out there which are really abusive algos and operate on the verge of illegality in the eyes of the SEC But what is the Momentum Ignition Algorithm? Momentum Ignition Algorithm is a trading algorithm that attempts to encourage other participants to trade quickly causing a rapid price move. This algo will either go out there and spike price quickly in one direction over a certain level (we've seen retail versions of that in terms of stop hunting) or a burst of volume in one direction. Basically they're doing something that is going to induce other participants to trade off the back of that move. The way they profit from that is to be either pre-positioned (they already bought and create momentum on which they could sell) or they're going to fade that and trade a mean reversion trade. So they're kind of trying to spoof other algos to participate. Keep in mind that some high frequency trading (HFT) will utilise momentum ignition to spark the 'handle', other algorithmic trading companies may be in the hunt for such 'ignition' to handle from behind.

Does the Turtle Trading system still work? Or has the turtle trend-following system stopped working? The turtle trading experiment. What is the turtle story? The Original Turtle Traders' Trend Following System You may have heard of the turtle traders; this was an experiment by Richard Dennis in 1983 - this guy had made a lot of money himself trading the commodity market and he had a debate with his long-time friend Bill Eckhardt. Richard argued that traders could be taught to trade well, he put an ad in the New York Times inviting people to come to him to learn how to trade. Ultimately he took 21 men and 2 women and got them to Chicago where he trained them for 2 weeks about the rules of his system. The rules of his system were very much a trend following approach; he would trade commodities, currencies and bonds. Richard Dennis would buy range breakouts so whenever any of these markets would break out of a range they would buy and add to the position as it was trending. As such Richard would pyramid aggressively into these positions - up to 25% of available capital into one trade and that's because he continued to add when the market was favourable. He would also manage the risk by cutting the position if he was in a range bound environment. But does the turtle trading system work in today's market environment? Probably no - some people have even backtested it. If the market is range bound you either don't use a trend following strategy or a mean reversion one.

Journals are great - notes about how you came to the decision to take the trade. - Take a break after a big win or loss. - Trade less. Most people trade too much - day traders, swing traders - you want better quality trades rather than trading more frequently. - Spend more time reviewing yourself than the markets.

ESMA Toughens Margin Rules on CFDs & Forex Trading 🚨
 
10:34
What do the new ESMA margin rules mean for your trading? PLEASE LIKE THIS VIDEO IF YOU FOUND IT USEFUL. IT HELPS A LOT. These ESMA rules come into effect on the 28th July 2018. The main ones are going to be the margin requirements; i.e. the leverage you can utilise when you're trading. At the moment it is pretty much the Wild West when it comes to forex; some brokers offer crazy amounts of leverage like 500:1, other brokers offer more conservative leverage rates like 200:1, 100:1 or even 50:1. In other words how much money do you need to have in your trading account to control a specific position size? If you have 1 lot of EUR/USD, say EUR10,000 - how much is that going to cost you in terms of margin? In the past this could be as little as GBP100 or as much as GBP1000 or more. These rules will broadly make brokes who are regulated in the European Union adhere to the same rules. - Margins will be fixed at 30:1 for the major currency pairs containing any two of the following: USD, EUR, JPY, GBP, CAD, CHF - Minor FX - all other currency pairs margins will be 20:1 - Major indices - UK 100, Wall Street, Germany 30, US 500, US Tech 100, EU stocks, France 40, Japan 225, Australia 200, US Dollar Index - margins will be 20:1. This is going to have a big impact on many people. - Minor Indices - all other indices margins will be 10:1 - Gold, 20:1 - Commodities, Oil and Silver - 10:1. That means no more big positions unless you have the margin to back it up. - Shares, 5:1. In the past European brokers would allow more flexibility on the bigger stocks. No more - the maximum will be fixed at 5:1 - Crypto, 2:1. Not really surprising considering the volatility but still quite harsh. Margin Changes Example Market - STAKE - PRICE - Margin Required (pre 28th July 2018) - Margin Required (from 28th July 2018) - Extra Margin Required (from 28th July 2018) EURUSD 1 1.17913 £58.96 £392.65 7x USDCHF 1 0.9839 £98.39 £327.93 7x GOLD 1 1298.50 £129.73 £648.65 5x UK100 1 7715 £38.58 £385.75 10x CRUDE OIL 1 66.50 £65.17 £651.17 10x BARCLAYS 1 215.25 £10.76 £43.04 4x APPLE 1 185.60 £928.00 £3712 4x BITCOIN 1 6985 £139.70 £349.25 2.5x The other thing is the 50% margin close out. If the total margin in an account falls more than 50% of the initial margin amount required to open the CFD position, the provider must close one or more of the CFD positions. Let's see an example. Let's say a client opens a trading account with a Forex broker, depositing EUR500 in totoal. The trader decides to open a short trade in EUR/USD, by going short 5 mini-lots (one tenth of a full lot). One full lot of EUR/USD is equivalent to €10,000, meaning 5 mini-lots are worth €5,000. Minimum margin required to open this trade: €5,000 divided by the new margin requirement (30) = EUR166.66 This is the minimum required margin to maintain the trade. Half of that amount is EUR83.33. Let's suppose the trade goes against the client, with the price of EUR/USD continuing to rise well above the entry price. If the price rises enough to net a floating loss of EUR416.67 [EUR500 - EUR83.33], the broker has to close that trade out even if the trade doesn't have a stop loss or has not yet reached the stop loss level. In theory, this means that a client’s account can never reach zero. Examples involving multiple open trades will be more complex, but will operate according to the same principles.

What Trading Volume Shows Us 👍
 
07:43
How to Trade the Markets: Understanding Volume http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/volume-stock-market.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE What does trading volume show us? Why is Volume useful? It is showing us the number of shares (if its a stock being traded) or the number of contracts (futures) or if we're using forex its normally notional volume. How can we use trading volume to our advantage? The best way to use volume is in conjunction with price. How Volume Trading Works: Why is Trading Volume So Important? - Volume traded relative to float - float is the number of shares in issue - if we know the number of shares traded on a certain day we can see how much participation there is. You can also use volume to see what is the normal participation. - Exhaustion is when a trend has come to an end. - Accumulation; how volume is increasing or decreasing - using volume in conjunction with price action to give us clues on what potentially is happening behind the scenes. - Move strength - a good move higher normally has good volume with it. - 'Stay out' filter - you might not want to get involved in periods where volume is too low. - Part of indicator input - you can use it with other indicators like VWAP.

How to Use Stops and Limit Orders to Exit or Get into Trades 👍

Using Stops and Limit Orders. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/stop-order-types.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This is a video for beginners. What are Stops and Limit Orders? What are Stop Limit Orders? Which Order to Use? Stop-Loss or Stop-Limit Order? Orders: How and When to Use Them A limit sell order: how would we use a limit sell order? If we are in a long trade (have bought into a market and expect the market to rise) and the market is going higher we can set an automated limit sell order on the trading platform to sell our trade at a certain price to crystallize our profits. A limit buy order would be used when we have a short position (have sold the market expecting it to go lower) and we want to lock in profit by exiting the trade at a certain 'lower' price. We could also use a limit order to get into a position if we want to get into a position at a certain level. Let's move over to Stops. Stop Buy Order - price is going higher but we are short on the trade so we're losing money and we want to cap our loss. So what do we do? We could use a stop loss order in this case a stop buy - the buy will be higher than our price so we will lose money unfortunately. Of course we could also use stop buy orders to get into positions. Stop Sell Order - if we happen to be long and the market is going lower - we are losing money and if we want to exit the trade at some point to curb our loss we can use a stop sell order. The various Limit Orders and Stop Orders are explained in this video.

7 Signs You Don't Want to Trade a Market ☝
 
08:43
7 warnings signs you should avoid trading a market http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/strategies/strategies-tips.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE We have thousands of markets to trade - how do we narrow it down? Which markets should you trade? Or better. Which markets should you avoid? We all have our favourite indices or currency pairs but if looking at something new for instance like a stock and are looking at the possibility of trading it - what are things we could check to make sure we don't get caught in something that is going to cost us financially. Remember risk management comes first, trading is secondary. Difficult market conditions: 1) Volume - Too Low - You don't want to get involved in markets that have very low volume because if you get in and want to get out quickly it means you will incur a massive amount of slippage. 2) Spread - Too high 3) Chart - Dirty - no clear trend, no clear suppost/resistance levels, trust your instinct on this one. 4) Binary News Pending; an event pending that is either positive or negative, nothing in-between - Court Case / Earnings. The risk here becomes too much of a gamble. 5) Unusual overnight risk - ADR 6) Volatility - nothing too high or too low. There are markets out there that are moving so little that its pointless to get involved in. And vice-versa - anything that is going crazy; of course you can dampen down the risks of wild swings by reducing trade size. 7) Takeover bid - this is similar to a binary event.

Trading Using the Time and Sales: How to Read the Tape in Day Trading 💡
 
06:10
What is Time and Sales? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/trading/day-trading-course.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can do more! The time and sales could be utilized by different traders operating under different time frames although normally very short-term trades and scalpers put more emphasis on it. Some day traders will make use of the time and sales in isolation (i.e. basing all their decisions on it) while others will use the time and sales in conjunction with charts or the depth of the market. How to Predict Moves With "Time and Sales" Data ? If you're scalping or day trading you probably want to be involved with the time and sales. Most of us will be looking at the charts - we will see how the flow of the market is going whether this is a 1 minute, 1 hour or daily chart. But if you're going down the route of being a very active short-term trader you probably need to look further in the time and sales. You are basically seeing the trades that have gone thru in real-time; as trades go thru you are seeing the price of the trade and the volume of the trade (size of the transaction) and the time of the trade. This could be indices, commodities or anything in a stock exchange like stocks. The colour coding system generally means - has the trade been conducted on the bid or the ask? There is no buyer or seller; there is simply a trade taking place. If you're into scalping this is a useful window where you can get a little perspective into what's going on short-term.

A quick beginners guide to range trading. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE What is range trading and what is a range-bound market? Is range trading a good strategy to use? Range trading is pretty much as it states; we are trading a market that is trading in a range. What we are looking to do is fade the extremes of the range on the high side and fade the extremes of the range on the low side. So we want to buy at the bottom of the range and sell at the top of the range. That's the theory. We don't want the market to break off from the range. As such we are looking for clues that the levels are going to hold and that a breakout won't happen. Range Trading: - you have to be very good at drawing zones of support and resistance. - whole numbers. Price likes to gravitate to whole numbers. - candlestick patterns are quite useful for this. At the highs and lows you want to see wicks.. - check the volume - oscillators Related Video Range Bound or Trending: Top 8 Signs Of A Range Bound Market ☝ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTeNM-6iIV8

Should I Bother Trading with Less than 10k? Trading Small Accounts Worth It? 💰
 
06:42
Should I bother trading with less than 10k? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Making-a-living-spreads.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Should I bother trading than GBP10,000 or USD10,000 or equivalent? Can you make money trading the markets with a small account? There was a study sometime ago which found that people that were trading with less than 10 or 20k were far less likely to succeed in trading than those trading with a decent pot. And let's be honest; that's the majority of traders out there. Is it possible to have success trading equities in a small account? And is it even worth the effort? My answer to that is that yes it is worth doing! I think most people lose because they use way too much margin and are leveraged too much. So if you're trading with less than 10k don't try to make a massive amount of money. If you've got GBP1000 or GBP2000 in your trading account you shouldn't be trading at GBP20 a point if you're spread betting or trading cfds. You should be trading way less - GBP1 a point is much more sustainable. Not only will you get a lot of psychological pressure but you won't ever give yourself the chance to make reasonable money. We all want to make money in trading so its only human nature that we want to press as much as possible but in reality there is a time to risk but its not all the time.

6 Mistakes Traders Make in a Bull Market! 😶

6 Mistakes Traders Make in a Bull Market http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/academy/expensive-trading-mistakes.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! I am not that good in swing trading in a bull market because I make these mistakes like many others. I'm better at day trading particularly shorting when the conditions are right. Ok, so what are the mistakes: - They wait for a correction that never happens. A bull market can continue rising for an extended period and its better to buy and enjoy the ride than waiting for the 'right moment'. - They don't buy the small dips. Dips aren't really that big in a roaring bull market - the market keeps pushing up; often its very methodical and slow. - Bears are always looking at the short side. - Fundamentals will use logic and miss everything. Maybe value is ridiculous on paper but at the end of the day its a supply-demand equation. - When a dip happens they don't buy - traders are scared of a correction and don't buy. - Instead of hopping on the train they look for a crash.

The Quarters Theory in Forex Trading 🌛
 
07:27
The Quarters Theory in FX Trading http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/forex/forex-trading.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This theory goes back many years ago and the idea is a good, solid one. It is similar to the whole number theory... The Quarters Theory Based Trading System The theory behind this is that prices move in a structured way between two points and those two points are a thousand pips apart. We then break it into quarters, each quarter is 250 pips so what we are doing is basically framing or splitting up the move into quarters. The theory is that the price will move from one large quarter to another large quarter in 250 pips increments steady between it. Can you structure a trade idea behind it? Perhaps not but you can frame your trade and use it as a target... This may not be the most revolutionary thing ever, but sometimes the simple things work best. Also, psychologically a lot of traders are watching these quarters and you can use this to your advantage.

The 3 Day Pause Trading Strategy. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This is a good strategy for swing traders to get on the end of market that you've missed. How often have you seen a market that has ripped off the upside and thought you want to get onboard - but how do you time it? This strategy has specific rules for getting onboard a market that is trending. 3 Day Pause Trading Strategy - its called that because you wait for 3 days. This is mainly for swing traders and you can adapt this strategy to any market. The Rules are: We need to have trending market conditions so an easy way to do that is: 1) ADX has to be above 30 The DMI+ (Directional Movement) has to be above the DMI-. If you don't like using the ADX you could possible look at the RSI being overbought for a long period of time. 2) 3 days of lower lows 3) Day 4 buy @ Day 3 high + 10 ticks 4) Stop = Day 3 Low - 20 ticks With this strategy you want to trail up the price. Risk:Reward ratio is likely to be quite high on this one.

8 Daytrading Mistakes that will Cost You Dearly. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/trading/day-trading-course.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! If you're just starting out and you're a day trader, those trading mistakes will cost you your account so try to avoid them! 1) Poor Risk/Reward ratio on your trades; you need to have a 2:1, 3:1 and more if you can Risk/Reward ratio. Don't get into the trap of trading more frequently. 2) Not using a stop loss - sounds simple but if you're new stop orders are imperative. The tendency is always to hold onto losers... 3) Adding to losers; this is not about scaling in. Averaging losers is generally a bad idea. 4) No risk management 5) Going in too big on each trade. You don't to put all your chips on any one trade. 6) Guessing how news will move price. I see this quite often. Predicting price news moves is too tricky for beginners. 7) Having too many correlated positions 8) Trading with no plan. You need a plan even if its the most basic plan in the world.
