A New Forex Trader - "I'm Like a Dog Chasing Cars"
What would a dog do if it actually caught a car? Lets paws for thought for a few moments and then look into this a little deeper and gain some understanding of how this can perhaps be cured in a Forex Trader or avoided altogether. Forex Traders are naturally wired to chase moving objects like price action and attempt virtually every pip throughout the trading session. Mainly due to lack off knowledge, training, experience and patience which as

Dead Cat Bounce.

A popular Forex trading term appropriate to many Financial instruments. This well known phrase is said to originate from Wall Street within the financial markets. The "dead cat bounce" means a brief and small recovery in the price action of a declining FX market. The basic idea is that even a dead cat will bounce if it falls from a great height. Also applied to Foreign Exchange  Markets where the currency pair encounters a brief resurgence during or following a severe decline

The idea of Trading a single Forex Time Frame can be effective while analysing one chart but there are some alternatives which may reveal a more in-depth and thorough understanding of Forex market analysis for all currency pairs. A wider perspective can be gained from taking advantage of the different and wider angles involved. 1497979?profile=RESIZE_180x180In essence, entering a Forex trade could be comparable to crossing a street.

A guy I knew a few years ago could ride a unicycle whilst juggling 6 oranges . He said it was easy - although he admitted he had been riding unicyles for many years from when he was a teenager.

I tried it in 2 stages - first of all trying to ride a unicycle - that was very difficult and although I did manage to stay on a few times - I could not even juggle 2 oranges at the same time - even though I could juggle 4 or more when I was just focusing and concentrating on just that part and not try

We had all heard about all the money Hedge Fund and Bank Traders had been making during the 80's and 90's and now with the availability of the world wide web and access to the markets - it was time to get involved.

All you had to do was spend a few weeks or months learning how to tra

We mentioned in part one about the Forex Market really being a "zero - sum" game - that's after the "trade" - ie Brokers / commercial agents etc have had their "spreads and commissions" off traders participating in the market place.

We also mention the "them and us" - IE commercial institutions / Banks / Governments / Hedge Funds etc - being them and us - being the "poor little relative" - ie the Retail Trader - working for ourselves and trying to make a profitable return from our Capital and

Currency Trading is just really the largest "money game" on the Planet - played by loads of all different people and organisations around the World.

We have really 2 main sections - you could say "them and us" - with us being part of the retail section or community - ie individuals - not working for Banks or Hedge Funds, commercial organisations etc - but instead just for ourselves. "We" only account for approximately 5 to 8% of the total FX market  - whereas just 5 very large banks account f

"Forex Market analysis relies on two types of analysis much like Stock Markets:

Technical Forex Market Analysis views the data on a chart and considers that the News and Data is built into the Price already (economic, political, social, sentimental and psychological). Various tools and indicators will be used by technical traders, for instance MACD, Bollinger Bands, Moving Averages and more.
