Let’s talk about trading strategies and in this article, I am sharing 5 trading strategies that I use or have used in my own trading. Each trading strategy can be traded by itself and you could also combine different ones. Each trading strategy consists of multiple confluence factors to provide robust signals. Of course, one can add more triggers and criteria to this approach.
The ascending triangle pattern swing trading system is another explosive chart pattern trading system that can bag you a lot of pips easily if you know what to look for. The ascending triangle chart pattern forms when two converging trendlines (support levels & resistance levels) converge to form an apex (point). The ascending triangle chart pattern is generally considered a bullish formation and it usually forms during a currency pair uptrend as a continuation pattern. This ascending triangle chart pattern is confirmed when the currency pair price breaks out of the ascending triangle formation to the upside and closes above the upper resistance trendline. If however, when the currency pair breaks out to the downside, the ascending triangle now is a reversal pattern.
One of the hardest truths about trading to implement, is that if you hope to become consistently profitable you’re going to have to think and act like you are, BEFORE you are. Aspiring traders should follow and mimic the mental traits, attitude, belief systems and trading processes of those successful traders and investors that have walked before them. This seems obvious and sounds relatively easy perhaps, but there’s a reason why so few people actually achieve trading success. You need some insight and help with what you need to actually change and do, if you want to start making money in the markets..
Imagine the following scenario: you’re starting the year, completely motivated. This is going to be YOUR trading year! This is the year where you will make it happen. When you look at your trading, a few things need to be fixed, though. You know you should start a trading journal. You need to stop revenge trading. Cutting losses is still hard to do. And really, your trade management is pretty subjective so your trading plan needs some work. You need some solid trading habits but more importantly, you need to look at ways to stick to those newly created habits. Everyone who has ever tried to lose weight, stop smoking or exercise knows this all too well:
Volatility is a mathematical term that is used to determine the expected returns from a portfolio. Statistically, volatility is used to understand the severity of how much a price can move from its average levels. Volatility is often measured by a standard deviation. Standard deviation is nothing but the amount of deviation from the expected returns or the average price of a security. Volatility is mostly used to measure the returns and is represented in percentage terms. When you measure volatility you are simply measure how far high or low the price of the security can deviate from its average or mean price. Besides being used in portfolio analysis and how risky an investment can be, volatility is also one of the factors used in technical analysis.
A few years ago, I met with a new coaching client at a hedge fund. This individual defied every stereotype of how one might assume a hedge fund portfolio manager may be. Despite a 20-year history in the markets and a stellar track record, he was a very nervous and anxious individual. Unlike many of his colleagues at the fund, who mostly took medium- term relative-value type trades, this individual day-traded FX, something generally assumed the domain of the home retail trader. What was all the more remarkable was his incredible track record. In a typical year he made around USD 40-50 mio of profit, this year he had made around USD 100 mio, a large chunk of it in the space of a few moments when the Swiss pulled their peg against the Euro. What really stood out for me though, was that he never traded after 1 pm.
Mistakes are inevitable when you’re trying out something new.For new traders, mistakes often translate to loss of capital.
Over eighty percent of today’s trading is automated. Before arguing this number, don’t think of only the HFT (High-Frequency Trading) industry.
