Endowment Theory: What Forex Traders Should Know

It is amazing how many people I speak to about trading and how often the conversation eventually makes its way to the topic of cutting losses and exiting trades.  It is almost as if people accept that most of your trading success boils down to this single clearly identifiable task.

Whilst trading routinely involves decision making, there are not too many more important decisions you have to make than when to exit trades.  It is one of those items that you probably wish you knew when you first started trading – as a beginner, it is incomprehensible that your trade exits are so important to making money.

Determining Overbought and Oversold Conditions Using Indicators

As a trader, being able to identify overbought and oversold market conditions can help you determine when to enter and exit a trade, what position to take, and when a trend reversal may be imminent. This insight allows you to manage risk and make more informed trading decisions. 

The most popular indicators used to identify overbought and oversold conditions are the relative strength index (RSI) and the stochastic oscillator. Both tools are momentum indicators and are plotted on a separate graph adjacent to that of the price action. They are also banded oscillators and, as such, have a set graphic range between 0-100. Overbought and oversold readings bookend the upper and lower bands, or extremes, of this range.

Forex Exit Indicators: When to Exit Your Trade and Take a Profit

Timing is everything in forex trading. Enter a position too late, and you might miss out on the price movement you were hoping to use to generate a profit from your trade. 

The same is true when exiting a trade: If you exit too early, you might miss out on additional price action that would have fattened your profits. But if you hold on to a position too long, your profit margin could come crashing down as the price movement reverses and puts you at risk of taking a loss.

Experienced traders understand the importance of exiting as close to the peak of their potential profit as possible. Forex exit indicators can offer the foresight and information you need to identify the right exit opportunity and take a profit from your trading action. If you’re unfamiliar with these indicators, it’s worth educating yourself on your options so you can experiment with different strategies and identify the indicators that work best for you. 

Here are some popular forex exit indicators to consider using in your own exit strategy.

Coronavirus Brings Wild Market Swings: 5 Tips to Manage Your Portfolio

All markets and currencies experience highs and lows from time to time. But there’s almost no modern precedent for the global economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak. As the pandemic sweeps through nations around the world and forces normal business operations to, more or less, grind to a halt, countries are experiencing their own local economic slowdowns, with the larger global economy headed for a deep recession.

How to Use Moving Averages Effectively

A popular way of identifying trends is using moving averages. A moving average is a line on a chart that smoothes out price action by calculating an average of closing prices over a period of time and displaying the result on a chart providing an overall direction for a set period.

There are two variables to be determined when using a moving average. You need to decide first on the time period you are going to use to obtain the average and, second, what method of averaging you are going to use.

Forex Hedging: What is It and How Do You Use It?

Investors of all stripes use hedging as a strategy to protect one position from adverse price movements. Typically, hedging involves the opening of a second position that is likely to have a negative correlation with the primary asset being held, meaning that if the primary asset’s price makes an adverse movement, the second position will experience a complementary and opposite movement that offsets those losses.

In forex trading, investors can use a second pair as a hedge for an existing position they’re reluctant to close out. Although hedging reduces risk at the expense of profits, it can be a valuable tool to protect profits and stave off losses in forex trading.
