Free Forex Training Video - Possible Trade Entry Video GBP/JPY

Free Forex Training Video - Possible Trade Entry Video GBP/JPY

Entering and exiting a trade is everything when trading. It's all about timing. Here is a great example of the forex market behaving as it always does. When I first looked at this chart the emotions kick in and it looks like a great opportunity. But then when my experienced eye kicks in I see that the move is almost over and I should not join the crowd. Instead my technical analysis tells me that it is time to wait.

I and you too should be doing a lot of waiting in the forex market. If you are waiting then you are trading. If you are always trying to make something happen, then you are a member of the heard.

There are always entry and exit signals that have specific technical analysis basis, those entry and exit points are the tools that make very successful traders.

I also mention in this video the difference between trading systems and trading methods. A trading system in a hard core set of rules that governs entry and exits, whereas a trading method is what an experience trader uses. A trading method is a method of trading based on special knowledge and experience, it understands that each situation is different and allows the user to make more accurate assumptions that a trading system can. A trading method is a living and breathing method whereas a trading system is not. A trading method is much better suited for the living, breathing markets.

I hope you enjoy the video looking at technical analysis of the GBP/JPY. Please contact me and give me your feedback, or comments.


This is a 25 min Video. Wanted to let you know before you dove into watching it.

*UPDATE* - since this video was created you can see that the support resistance zone was broken and the currency pair is headed down. I will continue to stay out of this pair on the short term until something more substantial starts to happen. I am anticipating something relatively soon, but it may be after the new years before anything really starts happening.

Forex Trading Systems | Forex Software - What's the difference?

Free Forex Training 102 - Forex Trading Systems Forex Software - what's the difference?What core things do successful Forex Traders know?

Forex Training Forex Trading

I found a good press release today that has some good comments that I wanted to share with you. I have bolded some of the key points that are important in forex trading.

Below is a direct quote from the press release:

"There has been significant bad press specifically on forex trading software, and there are certainly some scams online to be aware of, however there are most definitely bonafide options as well. Using forex trading software and systems eliminates the risk involved in currency trading, as Andreas Kirchberger of Forex Killer states "proven software which does the thinking for you and therefore eliminates the human error factor".

There are essentially 3 main factors of successful forex trading software and systems. Firstly selecting your term of trading is crucial to your currency trading success. There are essentially 3 time frames: long term, medium term and short term. The long term trader will hold on to their currency for months. The short term trader, sometimes known as a scalper, is seeking quick fire trades and immediate profits. The medium term trade is the lowest risk option, and require the least amount of capital to realize profits.

Justin Kuepper, a contributor to Investopedia.com, suggests favouring a medium term trade will "help you save money and ultimately become a profitable retail forex trader".Secondly, analysis of technical statistics is required. The currency marketplace is essentially a continuous supply of data which needs to be interpreted and correctly exploited for profit. One needs to be able to understand market fluctuations and be aware of key indicators of a market swing.

This is the attraction of forex trading software, as it will interpret this data and help you make educated decisions on future trades more frequently.Finally, timing of your trades is crucial to your success. John Chen of Profitable Trend Forex System attributes timing in terms of joining a trend as a key ingredient in currency trading success. There are essentially two main orders or decisions one needs to incorporate in one's forex trading system, theses are 'stop loss' and 'take profit'. 'Stop loss' is an order to cease trading when the currency reaches a certain point. 'Take profit' is a more conservative approach to a market upswing, which will result in profit, but not risk a massive collapse." This article comes from 24-7pressrelease.com and is referencing the forextradingsoftwarereview.com website. I did not write the article I am just citing it and want to document where it comes from.

This is a really good article/press release that has some really good points about what profitable forex traders do. Here is my summation and added comments to this article.



  1. Forex has gotten some bad press lately - The forex market is a wonderful market, lets get that straight first. However, there are scams and questionable brokers around every courner. With the right education you can identify these with ease and have a great forex experience.
  2. It is not illustrated well and I will clarify this more in my following Forex Trading Software vs. Forex Tading Systems post - There is a big difference between forex trading software and forex trading systems. One step farther is that there is a big difference in following a forex system blindly or actually knnowing everything about that system and the trading methodology. This only comes from quality Forex Training, this type of forex training is rarely free. If the demand is great enough and you would really like to learn more about forex training, I have an idea that could give you the forex training for less than your monthly starbucks cost. But I won't waste my time if no one is interested so please contact me.
  3. Your term of trading - or your trading style (scalper vs. swing trader vs. investor) makes a big difference in your time investment, your stress levels, and your forex career. What I share with you is going to the medium term style as is what you can do easily without quiting your current job, it takes very little time per day to do, and you can produce expert level gains and results with this term.
  4. The medium term forex stylecombines the best of the highest reward with the lowest risk (scalpers have the lowest risk, however they also have the lowest profits per trade. They make up with this by the number of trades they make - sometimes a hundred+ per day, we don't have this kind of time to invest and we can do the same with a few minutes per day).
  5. Technical analysis of statistics is required (in our language technical analysis is required). That sounds really hard, but if you see that this line "/" is sloping up and this line "\" is sloping down, then you can do technical analysis.
  6. Successful traders uses analysis to determine when to enter and exit trades
  7. Some people use Forex Trading Software to give them signals. I personaly do not trust software, and I know for a fact that it does not always work!!! I will explain this in my following Forex Trading Software vs. Forex Tading Systems post. Trading software tells you when to buy and sell. Easy right,,,,that's what I want!!!! Well it's not that easy. These systems work well during trending markets. So you can make huge gains during a trend, and when you get to a correction you end up loosing it all if not more. OUCH!!! Yes I have been there.
  8. People use Forex Trading Systems to trade by looking at the technical analysis indicators and getting buy and sell signals from those indicators. When looking at the charts you can also take into account other little things, like cases. "Well in this case you would do xxxxxxx, and in that case you would do yyyyyyy" This is something that Forex Trading Software does not do a good job it. It is not human and cannot make those type of descisions.
  9. #8 leads me to this point and that is that taking the last bolded item of the article. Taking the signals (timing) in context or in conjuction with the overall trend of the market is very key to a Forex trader's success. Always go in the direction of the trend and trade with common sense, something a computer does not have. This may all be greek to you but with the right forex training this becomes very elementary and easy.

I have developed over 40 automatic trading advisors, I am an engineer by education and know a thing or two about computer programming. It has taken me a very long time to develop a trading advisor that works. I'm in the long phase of testing it. It is the closest thing to being intelligent enough to know to only trade during tending markets and to not trade during corrective periods.

Trading advisor & automatic trading programs (they execute the trades for you while you are out on the beach) are very hard to come by, the ones that are profitable and work are worth millions of dollars and will only be sold for that. It is much easier for you (unless you have a couple of million dollars to purchase one of these) to gain your forex training and start trading on the medium term time frame.

Forex Training - will never fail you (only your emotions will)

Forex Systems without education - Will produce profits, and will produce losses, you are at the mercy of how much either of those are by cercumstance and luck.

Forex Software - Same as the forex system but can get you into bigger trouble due to the fact that you could be in a corrective period and the software could give you numerous false signals resulting in numberous consecutive loosing trades.

Get you forex education is by for the best means of creating a successful forex career. You won't need anything else except a computer and an internet connection.

If you are interested in me creating a good educational source please contact me. You guys/gals have been great so far and I just wanted to thank you for coming to my blog, you inspire me.

Live abundantly and then share that wealth with those who need it.

Free Forex Training Video - Protecting Profits in the GBP/AUD Part 4

Free Forex Training Video - Protecting Profits in the GBP/AUD Part 4

Hey Everyone,

Some interesting things happened on this trade. Well I say interesting when really this is kind of normal for the forex market.

I'm so accustomed to the forex market that when you guys come to me for help that I typically respond with what are you talking about, it always happens likes this. This has been actually been an interest of mine over this past month. I have a retirement account that I am still managing and it has just been funny lately, when really it is the same old thing. I've just been growing accustomed to the forex markets. Friends, I always tell people that they need to trade at a minimum of 3 months in a forex demo account before live trading.

Please hear me on this one!!! Look at the gains that I am getting on these trades...it is realistic to double your account every couple of months. REALLY LISTEN TO ME NOW!!! If you could double (that is 100% rate of return on your entire account balance) in 6 months (and we can do it every 3 or 4). Is it worth it to take a little break and "LEARN" the markets, get a feel for the markets, get all messed up like me because you are accustomed to the forex market. This is what you want...I cannot stress enough how lucrative this market is. Now outside of brokers, we have to be better than them. Only 5% of the traders out there can have the success that we are seeing here. Stand by be and you will be in that 5%.

So how to we double our accounts? lets say I risk 3% of my account balance on every trade. I have $10,000, so I riske 3%...that is risking $300. Got it? if not contact me, I want you to make money...so please ask me, I WILL answer any question you have. So we trade with $300. Lets say that I can average 100 pips per trade (I believe I am averaging about 135), So that means that I am make $300 on my 1st trade. I then have $10300 and I riske 3% = $309 (so we stick with our .3 lots or $300 risk) (1 lot trades in the forex market = $1,000 of currency, this would be trading with .3 lots = $300) So now we make $318 with our 100 pips profit. So now our account balance is $10,627. What is 3% of $10600? It is $318. So we are sticking with our $300 risk or .3 lots.

BORING...right!!!! So If I'm making a little over $300 per trade on average (forget the compounding interest), how long does it take to double my account balance. 34 trades is how long. Well I get this many pips every other day or 2 or 3 days. So that is why I say you can double your account balance every 3 or 4 months. I make BIG PIPS, period! That how I trade, my mediocre trades are 100 pips, I get 200 - 700 pips all of the time! I have even had a few 900 - 1000 pip trades. Trading in this manner is also the easiest on you, it's the funnest. I mean how many people can turn $100 to $1000 in one to 4 months time?

HONESTLY....its REALLY boring though! This is not fast money....Could you? Well yes, I'm tempted all the time....(Mission....you make 100 pips profit all the time, why not risk 50, 70, 80% and make some big bucks).....well, it never works out that way. WHY? Emotions! Its a lot easier to see a -100 pip move on $300 (it's only $300 and I made that yesterday), and so I am confident in the indicators and the trends and everything else (yes, I make mistakes too when I enter the market but the overall trend takes care of everything). Then the trade works out...it always does, and I can manage the trade better that way. But when I see that I'm -$7000 on an account, no one can take that kind of loss in a day, or hours, or even minutes in this market. So you close the trade for a HUGE loss!

So if you are looking for excitement (pants flaming and leisure suites in Manhattan), then you've come to the wrong place.

All we do here is make money, in a very boring way. Sorry for the disappointment....but I at least hope that you like the video!!!

In this industry we ALWAYS use stop losses!!!! PERIOD! Now I have traded without them, but this was a big mistake. Don't loose $15K on one trade like I did because of no stop loss. Yes, I have lost, so listen to me when I harp! Lucky I make $17,400 a few hours before on 4 trades. It still REALLY hurt though. I couldn't trade for a week after that.

Have fun guys!!!

Enjoy

Part 3 Stop loss-Free Forex Training Video

Free Forex Training Video - Protecting Profits in the GBP/AUD Part 3


Hey Everyone,

I'm glad that you've made it back. I'm continuing to show you what kind of profit potential you can make and how we can lock in profits using stop losses in the forex markets.

This is a short little video showing you that I'm moving the stop loss to another support / resistance zone where I know that if it breaks that zone it will continue to move the opposite direction for a more substantial retracement.

I'm locking 134 pips profit and sitting at about 280 pips profit for the trade.

Forex Training 102 - FOREX BROKERS! -- PART 3

Forex Training 102 - FOREX BROKERS! Who do I give my money to? Whose advice and training do I trust? -- PART 3


Let’s talk about brokers in the Forex industry as a whole as part of your premiere free forex training.


THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT POST. PLEASE READ FOR YOUR PROTECTION!!!


From Part 2 we have a sense of how to determine what kind of broker we are dealing with.


There is another very important topic I want to cover and that is concerning training. I have been doing Technical Analysis for over six years now and know quite a bit about trading in all markets. I have invested thousands of dollars in my trading education and have receive a very good one. I feel that the difficulty of the material…these secrets are not worth paying thousands for, however the few that are teaching the secrets are controlling the price because they know people with pay it or they won’t invest and that is fine with them.


The next thing I want to cover is all of this FOREX TRAINING that is out there. Have you noticed that all the free training out there is BROKER DRIVEN? This is clearly evident when you go to the site that is offering the free training and there is nothing but advertisements about brokers among everything else. Something that you as a consumer must know is that you are entering a new world. That world is the currency exchange world. This world is entirely online and is a global world, a world that is deregulated, a world that is making more money that any other industry. So then you tell me, “Well Mission, I want to be a part of that world!” There are two money making aspects of the forex world. One is clearly by the traders who reap in huge profits in this industry (by the way, only 5% of forex traders are these guys), the other money making aspect of the forex world is on the brokers side, the side we cannot get a hold of unless we are the one’s scamming people out the their money and getting paid by the brokers (that’s just not my style). So excluding those big traders (the banks and very select few), we are talking about small traders, you and me. The guys who trade with less than hundreds of millions of dollars. There are a lot of us out there, and we are hungry to be in this market. Statistics in the forex market shows that most people loose money in the forex markets and the brokers are banking on this. So what happens? To continue making profits the brokers have to lure more people into this market. How do they do that, by offering more incentives, some like free training? They also boast no commissions; the commissions are just built into the trades with the spread (well go over this later). This also ties into PART 2 of the previous post, can you see how the bad brokers can take advantage of all of this.


An interesting fact to know is that brokers are paying massive dollars for marketing, pay per click advertising for the forex industry is some of the highest paid. These guys are making so much money and most forex traders that I know are loosing money. The money is going somewhere, with some careful attention you can see that the brokers are ending up with it.


The brokers can care less if you loose all of your account or not, they would actually like you to slowly loose your account balance because then they would make more money. This wild world of forex trading can be very easy if you have the right education, but what kind of education do you get from the brokers. Honestly it is very basic, and had been available online fore free more many years. You have to be very careful with your brokers. Chose a broker that is not concentrating on training, and get your training elsewhere, chose your broker by Part 1 & Part 2 of the FOREX Trading 102 posts. There is training available out there that is relatively cheap. I say cheap because remember in the forex you can make 100% profit on 1 trade which I will show you in a video soon. So let’s say you invested $500, there are training programs out there that will pay for themselves in 1 or 2 trades.


It is critical that you get educated before investing money in the forex market. It is critical that you practice in a demo account before you invest any hard earned money. I cannot give you all my secrets here, but a can give you a lot of them. Most of all I want to educate you enough that you can make informed decisions about brokers and also about trading. I want to keep you from making the same mistakes that many people are still recovering from.


I don’t mean for these first few post to scare you out of the forex marker, it is highly rewarding and fulfilling. There is just some work that we must do before we blindly jump into the market.


Hang with me and I’ll be showing some cool stuff coming up in the future. Some real life trades!


Live abundantly and share that abundance with others!
