The Art of Forex Trading Excellence

Complete Currency Trader’s primary trading philosophy is based on exploiting individual currency strength and weakness.

The principle idea of buying strength and selling weakness is as old as speculative markets themselves, and is indeed a fundamental key strategy for investors in all marketplaces. However, when it comes to Forex, the idea is lost on all but a tiny minority of traders. By far, the majority of amateur retail traders participating in Forex speculation ignore this winning strategy (or are simply unaware it even exists).

Trading Unusual Options Activity in a High Volatility Environment

With post election market swings happening in magnitude larger than we have seen in a long time a lot of retail traders are struggling to stay on the right side of the market. A slew of technical indicators that seek to show retail trader where big money is putting their risk capital seek to better inform traders on where they should be placing their speculative bets. With such large daily moves in equity markets traders want to know where the “smart” money is positioned. Making this determination is very difficult if we only look at the stock market.

Why Options are the Better Choice for Holding Positions

Have you ever done the math on how much money you tie up when you hold a stock overnight, even using margin? Let’s do that now. Let’s say that I buy 500 shares of a $68 stock. That’s $34,000 in value. With typical 2-to-1 overnight margin, I can hold that position using only $17,000. But what exactly does that mean in terms of my risk, and is there a better approach?

Mindset to Minimize Options Trading Risk

When I was a kid, my father used to always tell us to keep the screen door closed. We lived in a rural area and it seemed that all the flies would congregate at our house. Whenever someone opened the door, the flies would enter. If you ever enjoyed the experience, flies have a way of relentlessly buzzing around your head at 5 am.

How to Make Big Profits Trading 30 Year Bond Futures

If you are an active trader, it’s important to build futures into your trading activity. Why?

If you are long AAPL, but the stock starts moving against you, you can hedge your position by shorting NQ. Everyone who trades the stock market should have a small futures account so that you can hedge.
