This lesson introduces spot currency trading, the most commonly traded major liquid currency pairs, what is tradable, who is trading and the realities of the individual trader's environment. Always a very interactive session with lots of questions answered in real time and recorded to be viewed again by programme participants in their own time. No one is left in any doubt as to the opportunities, pitfalls and requirements for all attendees for the remainder of the programme.
Here we move into the practical application of trading and examine the main considerations before determining the all important trade size. The use of leverage i.e. being able to use a small amount of money to take large stakes in the market, is analyzed in the context of its trading power but also the real and present danger it presents to less experienced traders. All of the unnecessary jargon is simplified and clear demonstrations are provided to work out trade sizes relevant to markets being traded. An online interactive quiz is also introduced at this juncture to ensure participants are fully up to speed.
The main forms of market analysis are evaluated from the currency traders perspective. Various forms of fundamental valuation techniques are evaluated. Market sentiment is also evaluated through chart analysis to highlight clear "risk-on" versus "risk-off" conditions. Technical price action techniques are introduced in the context of its merits versus other forms of market analysis.
Price action trading is all about seeing, accepting and trading. This is trading what is in front of you not what you or some pundits believe will or will not happen. Through in depth currency chart analysis techniques and methods are explained whereby it becomes obvious where pending orders are congregating. This presents excellent trading opportunities.
New traders typically lose! Counter retailing currency trading methods are employed that both avoid and exploit the mistakes that typical retail traders make. This builds on years of industry specific experience that gives individuals an edge over the masses.
This critical lesson highlights to the new trader how to understand capital preservation and risk management principles specific to currency trading that ensures you can stay in the game even when the market moves against you. The paramount need for and methods of trade journaling are also discussed and presented.
