Beyond Technical Analysis

Having a tested technical analysis approach to the market, with clear rules for entry and exit, that gets the odds on your side over a larger number of trades, is important to be successful. But there is more to trading. Understanding how macroeconomics influence markets and the price of assets is beneficial to giving traders an edge. Having the right state of mind to execute trades consistently, without being hindered by emotions or unrealistic expectations is important. A solid trading psychology is needed to make the right decision in every situation.

There is a set of tools needed in order to trade effectively. Not having the right tools could mean failure. Risk management implies identifying trading risks and knowing how to handle them, to prevent deep drawdowns or losing your trading capital. Rules on trade risk and risk / reward can help to maximize profits while minimizing losses. Having a trading plan with checklists, rules and fixed routines supports a trader, because the plan makes it clear what to do in each situation.

BTC vs BCH vs DASH - Addition to the Core Portfolio

During the radio show this week, one of the long time miners and entrepreneurs in the crypto space made an interesting statement during a segment concerning Bitcoin Cash. It set me back in my thinking and the following day I spent a good half day doing additional research into the coin to see if I needed to add this to my core long term portfolio. What really blew ...

This is an supplement to the article this morning. Since this is a new crypto and has no history these are very preliminary projects, however, we have seen coins go up 1000% in months. Coins like ETH OMG NEO and LTC definitely come to mind. With even bitcoin.com posting an article (thank you @brrd for sharing that) detailing why Bitcoin Cash is truly the real ...

First off, I understand that bitcoin has great fundamentals. Bitcoin has great potential to be a currency that can be used everywhere around the world, decentralized and the digital money of the future. There's no doubt bitcoin will have great use in the future but there are still some issues which have not been fully addressed (as today). In November-December ...

Hi traders! As you can see from the above chart, #GBPJPY is currently forming a corrective structure for the next move. Once the corrective structure is broken along with the support level, we can expect a bearish move (to continue the trending channel) I'll keep this idea updated.. Happy trading! -Abdulla

GOLD / 1276

Sell is almost completed! Those selling the 1299-test-back should trail the stops or have BE. Because if Gold is Bull then at 1276 it will stop and continue back up. 1276 is a Gate level! So if 1276 broken by 1$ and Gold goes up, that means that 1254 becomes a target that doesn't have to be reached right away but can be reached month + later. If there is pip in a ...

We're now retesting the resistance 5721 at Bitstamp, which rejected multiple times previously. If we close above this resistance, we can watch the volume of next candle as a reference, if it's confirmed we can anticipate a new high.

Hi traders, Just like NZDUSD, here we have UJ faking everyone out this week. No short term bear run! MACD faked & RSI too! Gold reversed, confirming UJ moves up. Here's what I'm thinking : USDJPY LONG: ENTRY : 112.19 SL : 111.411 TP : 114.343 Trade safe! Disclaimer: This is my trading analysis, it is not an invite or recommendation to trade.
