Strength and Weakness with EMA’s

Hello Trader,

Moving averages have been a trend traders best friend for ages. Almost every trader has at least moving plotted on his charts to understand which side of the market he is in.

Personally we feel moving averages can be used best when clubbed with overall strength and weakness of currency indexes.

We are looking to trade existing trends and make pips along the way. Using the currency power meter on the Daily time frame you can find the best pairs to trade.

You can simply use longer moving averages like 50 , 100 and 200 ema on the 1 hour time frame to find entries each time price pulls back.

In the images above you can clearly see GBP and EUR in uptrend and NZD and CAD in a down trend making GBPCAD , GBPNZD, EURCAD, EURNZD a good bet for buy.

The Currency power meter makes it easy for you to spot the right pair to trade and then only use any pullback strategy to enter existing trends.

Happy Pippin

This small insight can change your trading result instantly

Currency pairs only move because one currency is strong and the other is weak that is it. This strength and weakness is how trends form and proceed in Forex market. Indicators only make it easier for our eyes to identify, otherwise its always the strength and weakness of price which moves the markets.

When a trader looks at the EUR/USD as a pair to trade and most likely would use a common or fancy indicator and look for entries. The problem is he is looking at this instrument as a standalone pair which is where everything goes wrong. Read More

It takes lot more than a good strategy to stay profitable

It takes lot more than a good strategy to stay profitable

Your personality does play a very crucial role in trading. You may trade the best strategy in the world and still lose money. As humans we have emotions. Some are restless while some very strong and firm with decisions. Some are natural risk takers and some aren’t.

Let’s be honest, if we cannot take risks then we cannot be traders. Trading is about managing risk. So someone who is risk averse should not be in the trading business. Read More (more…)
