When it comes to trading, it is widely accepted that there are two main approaches to your analysis of potential trades.  They are fundamental analysis and technical analysis.

Technical analysis is widely used by private traders and is becoming more and more popular.  It involves the study of a financial product’s actual price, to form an opinion on the likely future direction in which the price will move.

Exponential Moving Average vs Simple Moving Average: What's the Difference?

Moving averages are one of the most popular tools that forex traders lean on when attempting to understand market movements because they add an extra layer to any chart analysis you’re conducting, highlighting exactly where the price action is happening.

Based on pure popularity, the exponential moving average (EMA) and the simple moving average (SMA) are the two most common moving average tools. But there are differences between the two.

Why Milliseconds Matter: 3 Reasons to Use a Forex VPS

There is a saying that goes, “Blink and you may miss it”. Well, with Forex trading, there is maybe no truer saying. In an industry that transacts more than five trillion dollars a day and with more and more being driven by algorithmic (“algo”) traders, it is becoming increasingly harder for the individual trader to keep up.

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.

How to Use the Elliot Wave Theory to Predict Market Swings

Odds are that you’ve heard of the Elliott Wave Theory, which is often discussed in the same breath as Fibonacci patterns. The Elliott Wave Theory was developed back in the 1920s by American accountant and author Ralph Nelson Elliott—hence the name. He believed that stock markets traded in cycles that were repetitive. This was a revolutionary way of thinking at the time because, among 1920s traders, the stock market was considered to be chaotic. Since then, the Elliott Wave Theory has gained traction as a market analysis method within the world of forex.

Here we’ll take a look at the history of the Elliott Wave Theory, along with how you can apply it to forex trading in an attempt to predict market swings.
