Some random pointers for the new year. (may not appeal to everyone though):

-Your stop loss is useless if you don't practice proper position sizing. What will happen to your account if a flash crash jumps your stop loss and sends your positions to -2000 pips negative? Position sizing goes beyond saying I risk 2% per trade. How much have you exposed to the market, even without a flash crash? If you'll lose more than a combined 10% of your account if all your opened trades ends as losses. That account may not last long.

-Ditch conventional indicators. Especially all those shiny arrows that are all based on moving averages.There is a 99% chance they won't work for you. You'll keep running around in circles with them until you either quit trading or you dump them.

-Embrace higher time frames. This is even more important now that sharp intraday market swings are common. You'll find your trade 70pips up, then one tweet or one news sends it back down to -40. On the higher time frame (daily, weekly, monthly), the big picture move will continue after the effects of that tweet or news has cleared. Seriously, if you learn how to look at the big picture, you'll be unstoppable. However, what qualifies as big picture will vary from one person to another. You also need to make sure your strategy always reacts quick enough to major trend changes even when you trade higher time frames. This part is tricky, but when you nail it down, you'll know.


-Don't pay too much attention to correlation.
Most forex pairs are correlated somehow at the end of the day. Even if you choose to trade only GBPAUD, CHFJPY, and EURUSD, they are still correlated indirectly. Instead of avoiding correlation, embrace it and spread your risk properly.

-Don't trade one pair. That's giving too much power to one instrument. Your account will literally depend on how that instrument moves. Aim for around 5-15 pairs and maybe (if your account can carry it) 2-3 metals and the two major ndices in your watch list. The currency pairs should be decent movers that are not too volatile or too slow. Like USDZAR, EURGBP, CADCHF etc. The slow ones will move 20 pips in one week. The volatile ones can have 30-50 pips spreads.
As you get more entries from your list, close out partial positions to balance out your overall risk exposure.

-You won't buy skyscrapers with your less than $1000 account in one year. There's a higher chance of crashing it if you want to push the limits and make as much money as possible. You need at least $100k to start dreaming about using profits from one year of trading to build houses and that's assuming you have a strategy that will allow you make 50-100% of that every year COMFORTABLY without panic, fear etc tampering with your trading results. Of course you can find some Chinese guy or something that turned 1k to 1m USD in one year from time to time.. Can YOU do it?

With solid medium risk trading, it will take at least 10 years of compounding to convert that small account to something big. Unless you show skill early enough and start focusing on attracting investors (always the best way to go).

Remember, these pointers are not for everyone. Pick what you want, discard what you don't like. I don't have power to argue anything o. Happy New Year to everyone.

I'm more into trading of many pairs.
when I started, I had issues, in the sense that:
1. I traded using 1 hour timeframe in particular and missed setups because, I can spend up to 30 Minutes flipping through the pairs at it was not easy keeping tabs on them.
2. many pairs equals many setups and a bit of correlation.
which do you go for?
there's solution for those.
1. Higher timeframes
2. splitting max risk by number of setups

currently I trade major USD pairs, major EUR pairs, major JPY pairs and AUDNZD (my fav)

Nice write up. Something to take to heart in this new year and trading season.

On this part, To trade the Higher timeframes (daily+) I believe you need a larger account and not the small #100 accounts.
Because sometimes even a tight SL can be quite large for such small accounts.

Watchlist for this new week, 4th - 8th January, 2021.

I have what I am looking for in all pairs, I will only enter if I see price action confirming what I want, else discard and re-analysis, not to litter here with screenshot, I shared 3 of them here.

If you have any pair you prioritise for entering this week, you can share here, let's rub minds.

Technical analysis ideas sharing only, not interested in Forex trade signal

May 2021 favor us all by GOD's grace
With the help of the elders in the group ive filtered a lot of noise from the way i trade but na Journey and we go continue to improve
Anytime they post trades and it relate to my ways of trading which im still finding difficult to understand i will just screenshot the picture DM then start begging them to explain what they saw and it went a long way to improve me
To the guys that are just starting from what is forex i implore u to ask a lot of questions from our elders or else u go burn oooo i mean really bad
if u cant ask them publicly, ask them privately

I trade with the close of the candle in which the wick is another part of the movement that gives separate meaning and i determine weakness and strongness before making any decision

We all do the same thing but our ways of executing it is what set us all apart
If plan did not play out i will restrategise cos im waiting for price to come to my hit zone

My outlook on gold. Bullish. I stand to be corrected

Re: Forex Trade Alerts: Season 21 by hidhrhis(m): 9:26am On Jan 03
EURUSD
For price to close at that level on the monthly time frame im anticipating for a pull back which signifies for a sell on the lower time frame but the sell to be validated price must break out of 2 zones
The daily time frame formed a divergence which to me signifies a form of weakness with a bearish candle that engulfes the last bullish candle but what really matters is the break out
it may break up which signifies the continuation of the buy and it may break downward but what matters is if there is a break out
The same theory applies to the 4hr which is my point of execution
it must break out and close below the trendline or it continue to surge upward
next week will determine the answer

Re: Forex Trade Alerts: Season 21 by hidhrhis(m): 9:28am On Jan 03

waiting for where it will break

My people I want you to help me answer this question way they bug me.
I have noticed that when ever I trade( demo) with large capital I hardly make losses. For instance I have been trying out a strategy for a month now, I have made just one loss.
Whenever I trade with large lotsize, I trade less and I make huge profit. But when ever I use less capital, say 500dollars I blow the account. Bosses wey Don tey for this business please clearify me on what to do

I had a bull bias before but those multiple rejections at the top may be a sign of no momentum.

Here's what I see now, but a break above 1910 will nullify the analysis and confirm the bulls.
