Technical Analysis: Why it Works and its Limitations. Francis Hunt, a technical analysis trader and coach comments. If you've found this video useful, please click the like button and share it with your friends and remember to SUBSCRIBE to remain up-to-date! Do you really believe that technical analysis can help traders? In what ways? How can a chart help forecast future prices if they are based on the past? Do you base your trading solely on technical or do you also use fundamental analysis? Can technical analysis by itself be the mainstay of an investment strategy? We know that in practice what happens in reality is that one piece of real news can blow up months of small technical gains. Please comment. Technical analysis works for me but I've selected the elements that work for me and there are limitations. There are a number of concepts that I feel don't work and which I avoid. Traders are taught indicators and moving averages; many of which are lagging the price action. I think there is too much fascination on indicators and too many traders get caught up trying to seek price tops or bottoms. I think price action is often de-emphasised. I do value volume and things like bollinger bands. I also use chart patterns as these capture people's footprints and DNA of a crowd's response to certain impulses.

Things that are familiar give you a degree of comfort so trading equities (shares) and big companies is not a false start. If starting out, steer clear of small caps and AIM shares which are highly speculative and importantly develop your emotion, system and strategy while doing this. Sticking to FTSE 250 companies is sound. Make sure you are not emotionally distressed or tired when trading. I have opened a trading account but how do I start picking which stocks to trade?

Preparing to Profit from the next Stock Market Crash

What are the best things to invest in if you think the market will crash? Francis Hunt a technical analysis trader and coach comments. In the long run this becomes a fundamental discussion; we are currently in a fantasy kind business environment where no real interest is being paid; the liquidity this is creating is not finding its way to small businesses. In the long run we will likely have a black swan event; a market reset correction if one may but it will be unexpected. Keep cash alternatives in intrinsic physical metals; do not be highly leveraged in property. I think anyone that resets an imbalance is beneficial in the long run.

Most people can learn the technicals but learning the mindset is more difficult and there's no substitute for experience in this area. You can teach people these mindset tricks but it is still going to take them to actually develop it themselves. Not taking profits goes against our most basic instinct.

5 Things I Wish I Had Known When I Started Trading Forex 🖐️
 
09:46
The best piece of trading advice I wish I'd known before I started forex. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! 1) Forget about the money and start small. Prove that you can trade and make money before you start putting in serious money. If you're starting with a big account you will start experiencing a lot of pressure when trading the markets. 2) Focus on risk! Risk management counts for a lot in trading - even if you have the best system in the world, if your risk management sucks you will end blowing up your account. 3) Filter out the noise! If you want to follow somebody, follow somebody...but get rid of the excess noise. 4) Stick to one trading method or trading strategy. 5) Be in it for the long term. Getting rich quick is not the way to do it.

How and When to Exit a Trade: Take Profit and Stop Loss Levels

● Zak Mir, an experienced technical analyst comments about entering and exiting trades. How/When to Exit a Trade. ✔ Please like the video and comment if you enjoyed - it helps a lot! ● To trade we recommend InterTrader No Dealing Desk platform: http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/intertrader/intertrader.html Zak Mir, an experienced technical analyst comments about entering and exiting trades. How/When to Exit a Trade. How to Determine Take Profit and Stop Loss Levels. I know what works and what works is successful money management over and above charting or the technical aspects. You take a position, irrespective if this was done on the toss of a coin and you move the stop loss with that position until the market stops you out. The key is to raise your stop loss to breakeven level as soon as possible. That way it is difficult to get wiped out and one day you will have a very big winner. I know that sounds like i'm doing myself out of a job but it important to be realistic what is effective and not effective. Money management is so important in this game. I think you can determine the take profit and stop levels using the average true range but really all you need to be concerned about is raising your stop to breakeven.

Developing a Profitable and Winning Trading System

How do you go about formulating a strategy with a positive expectancy? Charlie Burton, trader and educator comments. Winning more than you lose. The way that I personally formulate strategies is to spot at recurring themes and then start testing - you take the basic theme - say a breakout at a certain level - if I use a stop loss here and a target here - how often would I be right. And I would use different levels to identify better strategies. Most traders focus their efforts on finding the best trading system but this will not by itself make you money. Please comment. The problems with most traders is mindset - they tend to hesitate when taking decisions especially when following systems.

Why should investors consider trading at this point in time?

For someone new I would ask him if he's got the patience and to demonstrate that he's not in it to get rich fast. Trading requires patience and if you lose 50% of your capital; the likelihood of you making back 100% back is low so people tend to increase stake sizes.

What Do Hedge Funds Think of Technical Analysis?
 
06:02
What do hedge funds think of technical analysis? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. Do you need to be good at maths to make money trading? Why aren't economists wealthy / successful investors? Or are they? Some of them love it and some of them hate it. It also depends what you mean by technical analysis. If technical analysis means optically looking at charts and looking for patterns like head and shoulders..etc it becomes very difficult to test. If something cannot be written down in a set of rules, then it is not useful. Others will argue that technical analysis is more of an art than a science. Knowing maths doesn't necessarily make you smart.

5 Minute Scalping System using 200 Moving Average and Stochastics ⛏️

5 Minute Scalping System using 200MA and Stochastics. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This scalping strategy is based on moving averages and stochastics and can be utilised on several currency pairs. The whole point of the 200 period moving average is to define the trend - when the price is above it we want to be looking for longs only, when the price is under it we want to be looking for shorts only. The second step is that if the price is above the 200 period moving average, we are looking for the stochastics to be oversold. As soon as they start turning up we go long. This is very much a scalping strategy.

Making a 10% Gain per Month Trading the Financial Markets?
 
05:46
How much capital is needed to start trading? Charlie Burton, trader and educator comments. Is it feasible to expect to make a 10% gain per month trading the financial markets? What type of returns do you target? You seem to favour making small and constant gains? These days the way the brokers are working you can trade in pennies per pip - you can literally be risking a few pounds on a trade. Of course you can make a 10% gain but that would imply taking higher risks. If you make a rule like wanting to make 1000 pounds a day, what you are actually doing is imposing a rigid structure into your trading which sounds like the right thing to do but what happens if you underperform? And what happens if you make more? Do you stop trading? Do you like to make small and constant gains or do you target the big returns?

My mistake was that I didn't always use stops sometimes. It is very painful seeing profits disappear and turning into losses. My current trading style is discretionary.

Markets are Rigged.  Using Charts and Technical Analysis alone is a road to the Poorhouse

Are the markets rigged? Is the stock market rigged? Why can't we use charts alone to analyse the markets? Andre Minassian, self-employed medium-term trader and businessman comments. You believe that all major stocks markets are fixed/rigged. Why and how can we use this to our advantage? When we just base ourselves on charts and fundamentals, the problem you have is that everybody else is looking at the same charts and fundamentals. The markets knows you as a trader by looking at charts so they know when retail traders are going to buy or sell.

We all know about candlesticks; well most of us do; if not checkout some of our past videos. We also know about bar charts and line charts but what about Renko charts?

If the price exceed the prior high by say, $5 (if the block size is $5) we then print on a green block. Beginner's Guide to Renko Trading and Charts. But what's the point of Renko? The point is that you're trying to smooth out the trend - the idea being that when you're long you stay long as the blocks are being put in green... On the first red that's when you close out the long position and potentially go short.

Top Reasons Traders Fail - No Discipline and Unrealistic Expectations!

Charlie Burton speaks about why so many traders fail. Many traders fail in their endeavours to become profitable traders. PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can bring you more! Two years ago I took 10k and I tried to turn it to 100k - I didn't quite achieve this but I still made a 600% return on my pot which was still good. I was risking on average 1 to 2% of my trading capital per trade and I would allow myself up to 5% on my bigger trades. Most people only have very limited capital and they want to make the money in a day and if you don't do that it is really boring. Most people are undercapitalised and trying to make 10% a month on that is boring because its such a small amount of cash. Just a while ago I had someone who had 10k in his trading account and he wanted to make 10k a month income on that! This is a long term venture where you have to grow your capital over time.

Why do you mean by this in layman’s terms? Our markets are so controlled; that nothing big happens by accident around the world . Everything revolves around an agenda.

How to Avoid Getting Stop Hunted. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Trade-risk-size.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! If you get stopped out regularly out of trades, if you keep getting spiked out you need to listen to this. Stop hunting basically means that it always seems that your stop is being triggered - it just stops you out even though a market is going in your direction and you end up losing money. There are two reasons for being stop hunted - 1) The first reason is because your stop is too close (too tight). Unfortunately, the tighter your stop, the more frequently you are likely to get stopped out and it feels like your broker is triggering your stops maliciously. 2) You are putting your stop in the same place as everybody else which leads to the triggering of many stop losses

Why can Most Traders Make $1000 but not $100,000? 🤑
 
09:11
Why most traders can make 1k but not 100k? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Making-a-living-spreads.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Why is it the case that many traders out there can make GBP1000 relatively easily but not a GBP100,000. The obvious reason is people's account size; if you're trading GBP1 pounds a point or GBP5 pounds a point or GBP10 pounts a point it is very hard to make 100k trading in small size. But there is something more fundamental about that and that is people focusing on the money instead of the process. We've mentioned this before - people keep focusing on the money - how much they've made or how much they are ahead but you need to shift the focus from the money to the process and that's how you go from making small amounts of money to larger amounts of money if you're starting with a small account. They don't think about how much they're making or how much they're losing - yes they calculate how much is at risk because they have to manage the risk but that's it. The majority of people are saying - that's my mortgage pay, that's a big tv...etc and they're anchoring their performance based on how much value that money is in the real world and that changes the psychology since in such cases people will want to take money off the table. People who focus solely on the process - are you sticking to your trading plan, are you managing the trade correctly?, do I need to add to the trade?..etc That's why people who trade in prop firms are able to scale up because once they've demonstrated their skill they are encouraged to trade in bigger size by trusting them with more monies. If you want to make more money on trade then obviously you have to increase your position size...

06:29
5 Minute Forex Scalping Strategy using RSI. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE Here's a simple scalping strategy to be used on EUR/USD and GBP/USD on 5 minute charts. So we have the 14 period RSI (RSI identifies oversold and overbought conditions). We want to be looking for shorts when we are overbought and longs when we are oversold. In addition to that we are looking for the shooting star pattern. This stops you getting caught out too much and you'll find that in many days you're not even taking the trades. I wouldn't be using after big data; I would use it during normal trading hours but I think its a good foundation to build a strategy on.

Trade Sensibly: Spreadbets/CFDs/forex trading is high risk! How can you trade/invest efficiently with with low capital? What's the best trading strategy for people with low capital? If you only have GBP250 or USD300, what's the best strategy going forward? This is a very common problem; in a perfect world you have a large amount of capital to trade but fortunately these days most online brokers also accommodate small traders. But what's the best way to use this money to learn to trade? The worst you can do is to utilise as much leverage as you can and trade with the biggest trade size possible. You might have a run of good trades but on average you won't last more than 10 trades. You might double or triple your money and then lose it all or you'll lose it straightaway. That is pure gambling. What you want to do is to make the money last as long as possible to help you learn the most. How do you get the best returns in terms of education? First open an account with a broker that allows you to trade with GBP250. You want to trade a strategy that has a long time to play out. Even though I'm a day trader and I love day trading I wouldn't day trade if I were limited to a very small balance. I would look at swing trading, holding positions for multiple weeks or months and I would trade the smallest size possible. And this is what you want to do - you want to trade with real money as that means you have some skin in it and there's some meaning to your trading.

Recovering from Disaster: How to Turn Around Your Trading Losses
 
08:50
Losing money http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Lose-money.html Paul Wallace a forex trader and mentor talks about bad trading experiences. Let's take the case of a trader who is going through a rough patch or who has already lost substantial monies. The first thing you should do is to stop trading. Step back, take timeout, organise your thoughts and then proceed. Look back at the 4M's - are you managing markets, method, managing money properly, managing yourself? Never trade without stops and never risk more than a portion of your account on a single trade. Keep good records of your trading activity including a trading journal of how you're actually trading. As Alexander Elder said 'If you show me good records, I'll show you a good trader'. For instance in my case I identified that 50% of all my bad trades were Friday trades. Trading itself as an activity can be immensely lonely so make sure you have the right support structure, make sure that your friends and family are there to support you. Is it possible to recover your account after catastrophic financial loss? Yes, and I've seen traders recover - I've seen traders losing five-figure sums in a single day and its really about how you respond. It might take substantial time to recover losses that you've suffered in a single foolish session though but that is part of your journey as a trader.

What is the daily life of a hedge fund manager like? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. It depends on the kind of trading you do. For systematic trading (and that means fully automated machines) it was ensuring that the machines were executing the orders they were supposed to execute. Then it was about finding time to improve the system, client meetings, filling due diligence forms and then meetings with lawyers and administrators. At the end its a job!

Will other CryptoCurrencies see the 10,000x gain like Bitcoin? PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Francis Hunt, stock market trader and educator comments. Besides Ethereum and Bitcoin, in which other cryptocurrencies should we consider investing? What are the most promising ones? So when we talk about when to buy, but when to sell? Is there any cryptocurrency apart from Bitcoin right now in which I can put in around $1k now with the possibility of a great return, say, of $10,000 in 5 years time? I would put my money on the first 10 and just keep an eye on the top 25. ICO's by their very nature are highly speculative and can be risky. You can now actually buy things with Bitcoin and that's practical. Ethereum is now also coming into practical things. On the bigger sums you probably don't want to put a lot of money on new unproven cryptocurrencies.

How can you detect trend changes as early as possible? Francis Hunt a technical analysis trader and coach comments.

Is it possible to predict and get the market direction of a stock right more than 50% of the time? If yes, why do so many stock market traders still end up losers?

What is your method for Risk Management and Money Management?

What is your method in risk management and money management? Charlie Burton trader and educator comments. Money Management - when you get into a position, do you already know where you may be getting out in terms of the stop losses / profits? I'm a target based trader. Do you ever average down into a losing trade? It comes back to risking only a small amount per trade; always risk a small amount of your capital - if you only have 1000 pounds in your account - you shouldn't risk more than 10 quid. That way you won't get discouraged by losing trades and you will be able to sleep at night. What do you do to cope when having bad days.

50 PIPS a Day Forex Trading Strategy 😵
 
06:11
50 pips a day forex trading strategy. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE This forex day trading strategy is all about making 50 pips a day - okay this is not guaranteed in real life but its very systematic; its either making 50 pips or nothing. The theory behind this trading strategy is as follows. We have money flowing round the world with the currency markets 7 days a week; we get the London session, the European, USA session and the Asian session and then they start all over again. The theory of this system is that as any of these sessions open we trade the currency pair that is dominant; so for the London session open we trade the GBP/USD and when the Asian session opens we trade the USD/JPY..etc Its a bit ambigous sometimes what the time of the open is. In this strategy we take the first hour's range of whichever market we're looking at. The theory is I go long when I break above and go short when I break below. This is a very systematic strategy that has potential.

How to Trade Trends and Build a Trend-Based Trading Strategy! 👊
 
08:17
Trend Trading: How to Build a Trend-Based Trading Strategy. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/academy/Spread-betting-trends.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Trading the Trend. How to build and trade a trend-following strategy and make money in the process. It makes sense to trade with a trend, in principle. It’s easy to see that the trend continues the current movement, and if you have a trade going then you will continue to make a profit. That’s why traders have the saying “Let the trend be your friend”. But it is not really as simple as seeing a price going up and deciding to get in on that trade. Trends don’t happen straight up, at least very rarely, as they have pullbacks or retracements which can take back some of the gain, or if you trade at the wrong time can hit your stoploss and take you out for a loss almost as soon as you get in. When you’re trading, it often works out better if you keep it very simple. Use simple indicators, don’t look for complicated patterns and features, use just as much complication as you need to determine what you need to know. In this case, you want to know that the trend is in place, which you get from a long moving average, and you want to avoid buying into the market when the price is stretched, as this is the place where you will probably see a pullback. One simple way to check on this is to set a couple of moving averages, say a five period and a twenty period. When they move further away from each other, that is a sign that the market is getting stretched and you have to be careful about entering the market at this time. Some people worry about missing out on a trend, and therefore potentially losing out on profit. You need to take a longer view than that. There’ll always be another trend coming along and you don’t want to trade on something which does not have a good chance of success. The traders’ saying that encapsulates this is “Don’t chase a trend”. On balance, it’s just not worth it to take more risk then you need to. Of course, trends do sometimes stop or even reverse. Usually there’s a reason for this, even though you may not know it or be able to find it out. But Newton’s law of motion, “a body in motion continues in motion unless acted upon by an external force”, also seems to apply to the price movement in a trading chart. With a strong trend, it is fair to assume that it will continue until you see some hesitation in the market forces. So in summary, to keep it simple, you identify a strong trend by taking a long term moving average, say an SMA(200), reinforce this opinion by looking at the SMA(50) or SMA(20) midrange average, and wait for the right time. You can determine the right time by various indicators that we have covered before, or simply look at the SMA(5), see when it pulls back to be close to or crossing the SMA(20), and judge it is the right time to get on the trade before the trend powers back up.
