Forex indicators are useful in a variety of ways. They operate as tools that are embedded in trading platforms and connected throughout in order to offer traders a different—and often more concise—perspective on the market. They can offer long- or short-term forecasts, a view into the current state of a currency pair, or a look back at historical data. There are actually quite a few different forex indicators that are of use, several of which are detailed below.

Market Wrap – June 2020

Another month and another increase in the number of coronavirus cases all around the world as different countries are starting to adopt different approaches to handling the pandemic.  What is certain is that coronavirus pandemic is not going away any time soon, as it continues to wreak havoc across the world.  Generally speaking, the volatility financial markets experienced throughout the early period of the pandemic has all but disappeared as the world is becoming more accepting of the new reality in 2020.  Economies of all sizes around the world are feeling the wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic as central banks have taken emergency action to cut rates (some repeatedly) and increase stimulus measures.  Many countries are now starting to ease restrictions and allowing much more normal freedom of movement for people.  However, as the Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell said while addressing the specific situation within the United States, “A full recovery is unlikely until people are confident that it is safe to reengage in a broad range of activities.”   This will likely be the experience in many countries which will severely impact economies all around the world for some time yet.

Adjusting for Risk in Volatile Conditions

Volatility is an unavoidable part of forex trading. But that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad thing: Many traders seek out volatility to generate profits from trades. And almost every trader understands the relationship between risk and reward: If you want to earn a profit from forex trading, you need to be comfortable with a certain degree of risk.

Nevertheless, too much volatility can rattle traders and call existing strategies into question. The recent market upheaval created by the COVID-19 pandemic is the perfect example of volatile conditions that have little precedent and can strike fear into traders. Some adjustments to your risk profile may be necessary, but there are also opportunities to take advantage of this volatility and use your analysis to forecast the long-term implications of ongoing market volatility.

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.

Before we discuss the top technical indicators for confirming forex breakouts, though, let’s make sure we understand how breakouts start.

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.

Market Wrap – May 2020

It has become clear that the coronavirus pandemic is not going away any time soon, as it continues to wreak havoc across the world.  Economies of all sizes around the world are feeling the wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic as central banks have taken emergency action to cut rates (some repeatedly) and increase stimulus measures.  The level of borrowing is moving into unchartered territory as the fears of the economic fallout are overwhelming.  The world now has almost 6 million people infected and over 350,000 deaths attributed to COVID-19.  Many countries are now starting to ease restrictions and hopefully reignite some economic activity however many believe it will not be as easy as flicking a switch.  As the Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell said, “this is a time of great suffering and difficulty and it’s come on so quickly and with such force that you really can’t put into words the pain people are feeling and the uncertainty they are realizing.”

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.
