USD/CHF was the one to watch!

USD/CHF was the one to watch!

The USD/CHF was the one watch in the trading session with two wonderful trading opportunities. First one to the short side and then one to the long side as the pair reversed strongly, driven initially by risk and then by stregth in the US dollar. And of course both clearly signalled on the currency strength indicator and the currency dashboard. https://youtu.be/TE9i6iUDpGQ...

Forex trading the US session – volume price analysis examples and much more!

Another great forex session as the US markets get underway following the overnight news in the Far East and in particular with regard to the Aussie dollar. Once again some great examples of volume price analysis in action which then provides the foundation for all the other technical analysis on the chart and supported by the Quantum Trading indicators. For forex traders the Quantum Trading currency dashboard is a great place to start with the currency strength indicator revealing individual strength and weakness across the eight major currencies. Then it’s on to the currency matrix and the currency array to consider the pairs and the complex of currencies, before moving finally to the currency heatmap. The importance of using multiple timeframes is once again highlighted both on the charts themselves and also on the indicators, with key indicators such as the trend monitor and trend dots helping to keep you in a position during the inevitable pause points in any trend higher...

A masterclass in trading forex using the Quantum Trading indicators and volume price analysis

A masterclass in trading forex using the Quantum Trading indicators and volume price analysis

This morning's forex trading session was a masterclass in trading, combining every aspect in one powerful lesson. The GBP/JPY provided a perfect example, starting with the base methodology of volume price analysis as the move higher came to a temporary halt in the faster timeframes and duly reflected on across the currency dashboard in terms of the currency strength indicator, the currency matrix, the currency array and finally the currency heatmap. Multiple timeframes are a key aspect coupled with support and resistance, the volume point of control and of course related markets in terms of risk sentiment. The currency indices too also play a pivotal role in identifying the intraday moves of the three major currencies of the US dollar, the Japanese yen and the euro in all timeframes. https://youtu.be/HRgkvTJjJRY...

Volume price analysis and the British pound

Volume price analysis and the British pound

Another interesting session with the British pound once again in focus for several reasons. First of course Brexit continues to dominate the news, and whenever an item of fundamental news is released it is the context of the bigger picture, and therefore has relatively little impact. Second, a volume price analysis anomaly was clearly in evidence on the daily chart for the GBP/AUD. Here we saw a wide spread up candle, yet the associated volume was not in agreement with such a strong move. Clearly the market makers were not participating in the move higher, with the pair duly rolling over a few days later to deliver a clear trading opportunity to the short side. Finally we focused on the new release of retail sales to demonstrate volume price analysis in action on the 1 minute timeframe, and moreover the trap moves initiated on any such release, with the volatility indicator revealing its true power. https://youtu.be/bb_ENLt0X8o...

Is reversal trading in forex for you – or is trend trading the best option?

Is reversal trading in forex for you – or is trend trading the best option?

Valtrex is often prescribed for hermetic neuropathy and acute hermetic infection. According to the latest recommendations from https://valtrexdrugs.com/, the drug is better tolerated than Acyclovir and more convenient to use. In the London forex session, the focus was on reversals and reversal trading, and whether this suits your temperament and personality as a trader. The forex market is one of mean reversion, with currencies moving from oversold to overbought and back again in all timeframes. This presents a myriad of trading opportunities using the currency strength indicator for MT5, NinjaTrader and TradingView. But the question is whether this is for you. The advantage of reversal trading is as a trader you get in early and so maximize returns on the position. However, getting in early comes at a price, which is the need to have a wider stop loss as it's not a question of if the market will reverse but when. And in waiting for the reversal to occur, requires patience and risk management as currencies can remain overbought or oversold for longer than you think. So the key is whether this style of trading suits your personality. If...

London forex session delivers great trading & volume price analysis lessons

A terrific trading session which once again had so many lessons for traders in all timeframes, emphasizing the power of volume price analysis and supported by the Quantum Trading tools and indicators. As so often happens at the session crossover periods, reversals take centre stage as the market makers move in to trap traders into weak positions. Putting Brexit to one side, the focus here was on the commodity currencies and in particular the cross-currency pairs of the euro, the Aussie dollar, and the Canadian dollar. The forex market is one of mean reversion and none more so at these times, when the market makers are at their most active. For the EUR/AUD the solid bearish trends intraday were duly reversed, but as always it's a question of identifying whether this is a change from a primary bearish to a primary bullish trend, or simply from a primary bearish to a secondary pullback or reversal before the primary is re-established once again....

2019 starts with a bang! But volume price analysis reveals the truth behind the price action

2019 starts with a bang! But volume price analysis reveals the truth behind the price action

If there was one word to define the end of 2018 and the start of 2019, that would be......volatility. Over the holiday period and at the start of the new trading year we have seen extreme and volatile moves across the markets. First was the biggest single-day points gain ever for the DOW which climbed over 1000 points. Astonishing by any standards, even in a 'normal' session and not one sandwiched between two holidays. Next came the flash crash for currencies with the yen pairs plunging several hundred pips in minutes, only to recover equally quickly over the next few hours. And all of this price action given further impetus from the thin liquidity and low volumes. Both these moves were associated with average volume, and sending a clear and unequivocal signal of traps laid by the market makers and big operators. Volume price analysis as always reveals the truth behind price action and whether the major players are participating in...
