Ozzy Dollar Hits My Target. Cable Weakens. Euro Moves Higher.

Ozzy Dollar hit my price target yesterday so i took it long. Well it actually hit 10226 and my target was 10225 so i was out by 1 pip. 🙂

If you have been reading my posts over the last few updates you will see that I had been targeting this area as a possible long trade for a few weeks now, and it finally hit on Tuesday. I actually entered the trade a little early at 10227 just to be safe, as i knew this was a strong demand area and it may not hit my 25, and that turned out to be the case. The price quickly moved away from that area so i knew it was a good trade, so i let it run rather that taking a logical exit.

Ozzy had been moving down towards that area for a while now, so a big move up was on the cards. As i had waited for the trade for a while i let it run overnight to get the full benefit of the move. I don’t mind holding Ozzy longs overnight as i get paid a good chunk on the rollover. I would not hold a short position overnight though unless it was unavoidable.

I closed the trade earlier today as the move seemed to have stalled a little, but i managed to get out at 10354 for 127 pips. I don’t mind waiting for a week or so for a move like that. I think it could have a bit more left in it, but i am very happy with my pips.

Cable has been moving down since Monday, and was punished further today by Mervyn King who gave a Draghi like press conference on the state of the UK economy. I have a price target on Cable of 15270 so its got a bit further to go yet. I think we will see a bit of a rally first though, before a move down to that level.

Euro has been recovering some of its losses since the Mario Draghi press conference, and peaked today at 13518. I took it short at 13506 so i missed the top by 12 pips, which is a pretty big miss by my standards. The move down was helped by some Euro negative news by the ECB saying Euro strength will hurt the recovery of the smaller countries in Europe. I took it down to 13468 for 38 pips. I re entered the same trade at 13485 down to 13440 for another 45 pips.

Euro Yen has been up and down this week trading in a nice range. We have had a couple of nice trades on that this week. First trade was on Tuesday at 12680 down to 12560 for 120 pips. We took it short again today at 12620 down to 12570 for 50 pips. The good thing about EJ at the moment is it does yield a lot of pips when you manage to trade it. You need to have a larger stop though on that one at the moment, as its very volatile, so you can get stopped out if you are too tight.

I will give a full update on the weeks trading activities at the end of the week. If you are trading this week have a good one. 🙂

Don’t forget, if you want to learn how to trade Forex the right way, please consider my Forex training course here. It will be the best investment in the Forex business you will ever make, i can guarantee that. My training is not cheap, but you get what you pay for and its worth every penny. What i can teach you will totally transform your trading and change your life. I will teach you something that 95% of all other courses do not teach you and that is how to make money from Forex trading.

What 95% Of Forex Training Courses Don’t Teach You.

There are many Forex training courses available online, some are very good, but the majority are a complete waste of money.

So how do you know what is a good Forex training course and what is a bad one? The simple answer is you don’t.

You can do some research on the internet on the various courses available to get some feedback, but you will generally find some people will say great things about a particular course, and some people will say its rubbish. The only way you can really find out is to take the course.

Now if you are new to Forex trading you could take a course, but you would not know if it was good or bad, as you have no prior knowledge of Forex trading, so you have nothing to compare it to. You will only find out how good the course is, when you start trading, using the information you have learned. If you make a lot of money then the course is good, but if you lose a lot of money, then you will find out very quickly that the course is bad. Just on that subject, i prefer to teach traders that have had experience of Forex trading, as they can fully appreciate the benefits of what i am teaching them. Most of my students are totally blown away by my high probability trading and my market knowledge, but its always harder for me to convey the power of what i am teaching to new traders, as they have not had any experience of trading the wrong way and losing money. But i don’t mind, teaching is a challenge and i love challenges. 🙂

Here is a good statistic for you to contemplate. 95% of retail Forex traders lose money. Only 5% of retail traders will consistently make money week after week, year after year. Now if you assume that 100% of retail Forex traders have been educated to some degree, in the art of Forex trading, because lets face it, we all have to learn how to trade, trading is not a skill that you are born with. So assuming that 100% of Forex traders have been educated, can you then assume that 95% of the information available online, whether that is free information, or a paid training course, is going to lose you money? Yes you can. If only 5% of retail traders make money, only 5% of the Forex training information available, whether free or paid will give you the education you need to enable you to consistently make money. 95% of the Forex education information out there will lose you money.

Many people come to me after taking various Forex training courses previously, that have lost them money. So why does the Forex education taught by 95% of Forex courses lose you money? The reason for this is that they fail to deliver on the main objective. So what is the main objective of taking a Forex training course? If you said “to learn how to trade” then i am sorry but you are wrong. The main objective of educating yourself in the art of Forex trading is to make money. This is where 95% of Forex training courses fail in my opinion. They will all teach you how to trade, some to better standards than others, but they will not all teach you how to make money.

This is where my training course differs from all the other Forex training courses. I will not only teach you how to trade, but i will also teach you how to make money. This is why my website is called “trade Forex make money”, its not called “learn to trade Forex like 95% of retail traders do” :-).

I am in the 5%, and my training course will put you in the 5%. I will teach you how to make money trading Forex. Which is what 95% of Forex training courses don’t teach you.

Day Trading Verses Trading Daily And Weekly Charts

Day trading verses trading daily and weekly charts.

Some traders have different ideas on what day trading Forex is. I qualify day trading as trading anything less than a daily chart.

If you are trading 4 hour charts, 1 hour charts, 15 min charts or less, then you are day trading.

I am a day trader most of the time, but i can, and do trade longer time frames. The set ups that i use are better suited to day trading, but do work very well on the longer time frames.

The main benefit of trading longer time frames, daily and weekly charts is time. You can spend an hour or so every day analyzing the charts and set up your trades in advance. This style of trading is very good if you are in full time employment, or have other business commitments, or you just want more time to enjoy your life.

Day trading requires you to be at the PC for most of the day, looking for trading opportunities and set ups. Day trading is more exiting, but can also be more stressful. How you decide to trade is entirely up to you and each style can be equally rewarding.

This may come as a shock to some people, but the charts work the same way in every time frame from the 1 min chart right up to the monthly chart. Some trading strategies only work on certain time frames, but a good trading strategy should work equally well on any time frame. The smaller time frames are more volatile and set ups can be less reliable. You are also more likely to be stopped out of a trade if some price sensitive news comes out, but your stops are tighter on the smaller time frames, so you are protected to a certain extent.

I personally don’t trade anything less than the 15 min chart. I occasionally use the 5 min chart to manage a trade, or to get a better entry on a trade, but as far as set ups go its more likely that i will be trading 15 min, up to 4 hour time frames.

I like to trade everyday and if you are trading the longer time frames you sometimes have to wait for a few days sometimes a week or so before you get a good set up. I enjoy trading very much, and if i had to wait for a week for a trade it would drive me crazy, but each to their own. 🙂

If you are new to trading you have to decide what type of trader you want to be. Do you have the time required to sit in front of the PC and day trade, or do you prefer to take a couple of trades per week and have more free time? You can do both of course.

I teach people to trade any time frame so it makes no difference to me what type of trader you want to be, i can teach you either or.
