The Best Times to Use the MACD Indicator
 
07:54
This week, by popular demand, David decided to cover the Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator, more commonly known as MACD. It's one of the oscillators that are quite popular with traders and being a combination of several variables, it's considered as a more precise tool than many others. David takes us through the theory behind it and the way it's calculated before showing us several textbook examples that illustrate it in close to perfect conditions. As usual he then goes on to an example on a real chart that frequently poses different challenges that traders need to understand and overcome in order to find the exact moment when they should open and close a trade.

How to Identify and Follow Trends
 
05:40
Cliches are boring but also true - “the trend is your friend” is the most frequent phrase you’ll hear when it comes to trading. So why aren’t more traders following it? Trading expert David Jones explains some of the risks and mistakes that are made in real trading. Let’s start with the pure technical definition of what a trend is. The textbooks state that “A trending market is one in which price is generally moving in one direction”. Simple enough but how do you identify it? The consensus is that when drawing a trend line you need at least two points to form it and a third to confirm it. Anything more than three points is considered a reliable trend but the more points there are, the more likely it is that the trend is approaching its end. But even with this relatively easy definition it’s hard for many traders to stick to it. This is where psychology comes in and influences trading decisions. A slight pullback resulting in a negative result for an open trade has a strong effect on our perception of risk and causes fear. Fear then causes a flight or fight response - flight equaling a closing of the position with a loss, fight meaning an increase in the position size, a defiance of what is happening and digging in. Both are of course wrong, as the initial judgement was made in a stress free situation and the initial analysis of the trend, as well as your position size were determined through research with the lowest level of emotion. This is one of the mistakes traders make not only when trading trends but in general. David discusses some other important points when it comes to trends, namely that they don’t go on forever and shouldn’t be trusted to do so. He also shows us some real examples on actual charts, so that you can see that the real markets aren’t always complying with theory but there are ways to develop an approach to determining trends.

What are Fibonacci Retracements
 
09:34
As per your requests David will take us through a review of Fibonacci Retracements - one of the most common and trusted indicators used by Forex and stock traders alike. Based on the work of an 11th century mathematician and found in many places in nature, this method has a loyal and numerous following. But David gives us both points of view, as markets aren't always logical and rational. Fibonacci can be great but there are also risks when using it and you can see them here in real market situations. At Trading 212 we provide an execution only service.

Bollinger Bands: Beginner Guide
 
09:40
Bollinger Bands are one of the most popular trading indicators and in this video we'll give you a tutorial on what they are and how you can use them in your trading. The bands themselves represent two volatility lines around the (typically) 20-day moving average. The two bands are placed at 2 standard deviations from the moving average. This is the concept that John Bollinger came up with in the 1980s. This statistical approach to trading takes the concept of standard deviations and places it on the chart. The idea behind it is that because standard deviations cover 95% of occurrences, this could mean that 95 out of 100 times, the price will stay within those bands. Additionally, the moves towards each band can be taken as buy or sell signals. For example if the price starts approaching the upper band, then we might take that as a sign that the market is overbought and the price could probably fall. Vice versa, when the price drops to the lower band, then that would mean that the market is oversold.

The Disciplined Way To Move Your Stop Loss Order
 
06:01
Have an open position that's making a profit? Thinking of moving its Stop Loss so that no matter what you won't lose any money? Think again. This is one of the many mistakes traders make when they experience the rush of having a winning position and feel like they're on top of the world. The actual facts are that traders in this situation often abandon their initial analysis and miss out on more potential profits. Why does this happen? David explains that the market never moves in a straight line and needs enough time to reach the targets we might have set. The frequent pullbacks within a trend are one of the main culprits for triggering Stop Loss orders, especially when you move them closer to the current price. This video focuses on the circumstances in which this happens and highlights the importance of discipline and the correct mindset when it comes to moving - or rather not moving - your Stop Loss.

3 Most Common Trading Mistakes
 
09:05
In this video David draws our attention to some of the most frequent mistakes that traders make. From fighting the trend and opening positions with unreasonably large sums to having stop losses too close, David discusses all these scenarios and shows how they unfold on real charts. While not following the trend and placing stop losses are more technical tasks, how much money you put in a trend is something more psychological and this money management is often something traders underestimate. If you have a large position and every small move against it makes you feel a range of negative emotions then that increases the chance of a mistake. So after watching the video you should be able to avoid these pitfalls and become both technically and psychologically a better trader.

Candlestick Engulfing Pattern Tutorial
 
11:06
Japanese candlesticks have one ability that most other chart types don’t – they can show so called “engulfing” patterns. An engulfing pattern is defined as when the open and close price of a bullish or bearish candle are within the range of the open and close price of the candle following them. When this happens many traders believe it is a sign that a trend has just finished and this is the best possible entry point. That’s the theory but as we know the market doesn’t always answer to predefined rules. That’s why David Jones includes real examples alongside the theory behind these specific chart patterns. You’ll also see different time frames discussed in terms of how often engulfing candles can happen, as this is an important factor when deciding if you should trust the pattern in different situations.

How to Trade Double Tops and Bottoms
 
08:06
It looks so simple when you look at it for the first time. Two tops or two bottoms at the same price levels and that gives a clear signal. But it’s never that easy and that’s why we decided to make this tutorial. Trading expert David Jones walks us through this, seemingly basic chart configuration, but shows us the wrong turns along the way. Patterns like this one aren’t hard to find but they are rare. And even when it does comply with the definition of what a double top or bottom is – it still can pan out in an unexpected way. Or take its sweet time in developing as per expectations. These are the main things to keep in mind when entering and closing trades based on double tops and bottoms – patience and discipline. Patience for allowing the setup to form all of its components, followed by an entry that doesn’t jump the gun. Then comes the discipline to wait the right amount of time to make an exit. We’ve got real market examples to show why these things are as important as simply identifying what looks like a sure-fire chart setup. Got questions and comments – tell us below.

3 Hardest Psychological Barriers in Trading

Trading has as much to do with overcoming the markets as it does with overcoming yourself and your own limits. Good traders know this and they manage their mental blocks to squeeze out the maximum results out of their trades. Our resident trading expert David Jones is here to discuss the three main psychological problems that affect traders and hamper their performance. First comes the general fear of losing money and letting losing trades affect your judgement. Then we have the inability to open a trade even though your analysis is solid. And finally we touch on the misconception that you should protect trades that are making a small profit - but haven't reached their full potential - from going back into a loss.

The Slow Stochastic isn’t necessarily among the top three of most popular indicators but it does have a large and loyal following. Our trading expert David Jones takes a look at the math behind it, ways to adjust its parameters and different tricks and tips on how to get the best out of it. It’s one of those indicators that “smooth the edges” - they need a bit more to provide a buy or sell signal. The parameters that build it are designed not to react to sharp moves in both directions (which are often followed by pullbacks) and looks at a broader picture to come into an oversold or overbought position. As always David demonstrates it in a real market where imperfect conditions abound and put the theory to the test. You can quite clearly see some of the risks and pitfalls of using it but also the situations in which it possibly ranks among the best indicators around. Two of the factors that you’ll see discussed in detail. The first is support and resistance levels and how the slow stochastic can be combined with interpreting them. The second is bearish and bullish divergences in the stochastic itself, pointing at potential false signals and larger trends that might become a trap if unseen and an opportunity if identified on time.

Bitcoin: Bounce or Bust Time!
 
06:59
Well if you believe technical analysis this is a critical area and time for Bitcoin. The leading crypto looks very likely to choose between staging a comeback or drop even further to levels unseen in more than a year. The downtrend has been questioned and challenged in the last several weeks but the attempts have been mediocre at best. Indicators on the daily chart are still pointing downwards although there could be some options for bulls on the smaller timeframes like one and four hours. Right now the support at 5900 looks like the next target if the bears have their way. It was last tested in early February and there was a solid rally after that – exactly what bulls are hoping for once again. Will all the negative developments about regulation, risk and fear continue dominating the narrative around Bitcoin or will the bullish chartist get some upward momentum?

How to Trade Trend Reversals
 
08:20
Trend reversals are the holy grail of trading. They are the coveted tops and bottoms that represent the ideal entry points for opening new positions and closing existing ones. So here we discuss how to identify them and what risks there are when you try to “time the market” as experienced traders say. Whether you use indicators, fundamentals or news it’s always a challenging task to find that exact point in time when a price has reached its highest or lowest point for a certain period. This is especially true for short-term trades that happen on the minute timeframes. The perception is that there is more randomness and noise that skew the price (temporarily) towards a level that doesn’t reflect reality. Some might argue that it holds true for all time frames. In the video David discusses how to tackle these challenges. He also points at the signs you should look out for when looking for confirmation of a reversal, as well as the surrounding factors that should determine whether you open and/or close a position.
