Trade To Rio

By Andrew Lockwood

Have you ever gone “all in” with your trading because you were in so deep you couldn’t see a way out? This takes me back to a monumental event that happened in 1992 to my then close friend, Trevor. It was the 16th of September, 1992, in an event called the “Black Wednesday”.   That fateful Wednesday, I was trading... Continue Reading

Forex gets a pretty bad wrap across most traditional investment circles. Many view it as an online casino filled with marketing sharks full of hot air, or that it’s dominated by big banks leaving little opportunity for smaller retail players. For the most part, this is actually true. There are a higher than normal proportion of sharks out to take... Continue Reading

My journey to achieving a traders’ mindset… Trading is as much about psychology as it is about developing a solid strategy. Without the mental fortitude to stick to a strategy, it will never work, regardless of how good it is. Successful traders not only learn to master their strategy, but they also take charge of their own psychology, developing traits,... Continue Reading

The other day I was was having a chinwag to a fund manager pal of mine, and he mentioned that he never understood why people are taking risks being in and out of the Forex market daily. “'Trend following is the only way that seems to work for me”, he said. I somewhat agreed, and it got me thinking... Even... Continue Reading

So you want to live the dream?  Trade full-time, in your pyjamas. The desire for freedom and financial independence is why many of us start trading. How wonderful it would be to tell your overbearing boss to sod off, sack the annoying client who calls you at 8 pm on a Sunday and say sayonara to that moronic trainee who... Continue Reading

Since we first opened our doors in 2012, we’ve analysed and watched hundreds of different strategies attempt to conquer the market. Many we’ve even traded with our own money in an attempt to find the holy grail, raise it above our head with both hands and gorge on the delicious pips as they pour down our throats. A strategy so...

For the uninitiated, a forex robot (also known as an Expert Advisor, or EA) isn’t as fancy as it sounds. When I first heard the term I had visions of an intelligent machine capable of outsmarting my Roomba at a game of chinese checkers. But… it’s not. A forex robot is just a piece of software that trades automatically based... Continue Reading

How sexy is a desk with multiple monitors? Nothing excites many of us more than sitting down to our desk with charts whirring and price jumping, reaching for that elusive TP. We’re like captains on a space mission, destination - planet money. A wise man once said, “Unless you have at least 6 monitors, you’re a loser”. That wise man... Continue Reading

I’ve been making money from the markets for over 30 years, and during that time I’ve seen hundreds of colleagues come and go. Many have become multi millionaires several times over, whereas some have dusted their accounts and given up. In preparation for this blog post, I’ve reflected on my own experience and why it is that I’ve been successful.... Continue Reading

Is trading demo account the same as live forex trading? Let me ask you a different question. When you buy a house in the board game Monopoly, do you get excited or stressed? How does that emotion compare to when you buy an actual property? Pretty different aren’t they! I appreciate this is an extreme example, but the premise is... Continue Reading

Should I Buy Bitcoin?

By Andrew Lockwood

“Should I buy Bitcoin?” I’ve been asked this question more than ever recently. People unfamiliar with the financial markets, trading, or even Bitcoin seem to think it’s a good idea to purchase some of the mythical computer code from the blockchain in exchange for their hard earned dollars/pounds/euro’s. I’m reminded of a piece of advice given to me from my... Continue Reading

As a technical trader (or using technical analysis), you need to always be aware of as many technical indicators as possible (within reason). We want to be able to identify possible trading entries, anything that conflicts with it and in consideration of the trade itself, what I refer to as 'key hurdles'.

“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it ... he who doesn't ... pays it.” - Albert Einstein This is a very broad topic, so I'm going to keep this specific to the context of trading and the power of compounding returns. This is relevant to any financial market traded. Let's first consider... Continue Reading

Large order traders are especially incentivised to see price move into areas of strong order flow. Essentially, the stronger an area is from a technical perspective, the more (in number / confluence) and larger (in volume) the orders will be in that specific price area (which is in-turn providing liquidity). Understanding liquidity and the cost of execution, must be understood... Continue Reading

What is a Short Squeeze?

By Dominic Gilbert

A short squeeze is when the market reverses aggressively after a relentless sell-off. This can occur on many different timeframes,  and like most opinions in the markets can be subjective depending on the trader. One may view the 15min chart and note the short squeeze, however, another may view it as nothing more than noise on the 4hr chart. A short... Continue Reading

The cycle of doom

By Andrew Lockwood

So you've been trading the Forex market for some time, but now you're sitting at the cross-roads thinking: 'I'm chasing my tail; why can't I make consistent profits?'.

My enthusiasm and short-term successes ebbed and flowed... Continue Reading

How Important Are Pips?
