3 Forex Indicators to Help You Confirm a Breakout

Forex traders bring all kinds of strategies and trading timelines to the table when they analyze forex charts. Both chart patterns and forex indicators can be used to evaluate trade opportunities depending on both your personal trading preferences and the price activity taking place on the forex charts.

When it comes to identifying a price breakout, though, technical indicators can help you determine not only the start of a breakout event, but also the kind of momentum it might carry for traders who open a position at the start of this movement.

How to Profit from CFD Trading the US30

Index trading is a popular, easy way to invest in a group of businesses, or a representative sample of a country’s largest companies, without being forced to invest in individual companies.

For forex traders, index trading is an attractive alternative to directly investing in a specific country’s stock market. Typically, indices are designed to offer a reflection of a given country’s economic strength. But these indices can also serve as a high-performing collection of select holdings from a single market, offering a more concentrated investment opportunity in a foreign country’s economy.

Contract-for-difference (CFD) trading is popular for index investments. Of the various indices available around the world, the US30 is one of the best-known options available to traders, offering an easy way to get exposure to 30 of the United States’ largest companies.

Managing Risk: Why Forex Traders Need to Understand Probability

It is widely accepted that when you start trading, you never consider the most critical issues to becoming a consistently profitable trader.  Often, all you can think of is how much money you are going to make and how you cannot wait to start.

When it comes to managing risk, an often-overlooked component is probability, or the likelihood of something happening.  Even then, I strongly believe that many traders misinterpret the rules of probability. Some believe that if they have an unprofitable trade, somehow this increases the chance that their next trade will be profitable. If they incur a string of losses, they believe that their chance of a profitable trade increases as each unprofitable trade passes.

Market Wrap - November 2019

The most dominant issues in November were the United States Federal Reserve (Fed) and their plan on interest rates, as well as the latest update in the Brexit and election saga.  In the U.S., the spotlights are always on the Fed and at a recent conference in Washington, New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said that the Fed has interest rates at the appropriate level for the U.S. economy.  "I think we have monetary policy in the right place. The economy is right where we would like it to be." Markets only see around a 25% probability of a rates move at the Fed’s next meeting on 10th – 11th December.  The Brexit critics continue to roll up to have their say.  Recently retired former speaker John Bercow says leaving the EU is the United Kingdom's 'biggest blunder since World War II'.  At a dinner in London, Mr Bercow was quoted as saying, “I don’t think it helps the UK. Brexit is the biggest mistake of this country after the war. I respect prime minister Johnson, but Brexit doesn’t help us. It’s better to be part of the [EU] power bloc.”
