    Trader's Checklist for Successful Trading

    Author: Andrey Goilov


    For successful work on financial markets, it is important to collect a set of rules that will help think soberly in any situation and stick to one's trading system. Most often, traders draft a plan on paper for no steep movements on the market to make them turn away from their goal. What is more, experienced investors advise to make a sort of a checklist with several questions, the answers to which will show if the time is good for opening a position or the trade is better skipped.

    Why should I plan my trading?

    It has been proved in practice that most mistakes and losing positions emerge in situations when the trader tries to act intuitively and avoid stocking to their own rules.

    For example, the trader has chosen the Head and Shoulders pattern for trading but it does not appear on the market for a long time, and they decide to enter a trade on a breakout of the support line. As long as they used to trade only one pattern, the trade might be compromised.

    Of course, such a loss depends only on the trader and their devotedness to their rules. That is why planning and sticking to the plan is so important.

    How to create the checklist?

    For example, if we return to our Head and Shoulders pattern, we have several rules for the pattern to form.

    The neck must head along with the movement, the right shoulder must be no higher than the left one, which will signify the weakness of the current trend. Then, we may pay attention to the fact of whether the pattern complies with the trend from D1; and finally, we must evaluate the risks for the deposit.

    Based on the data above, we can create a checklist for trading Head and Shoulders patterns; the answers will help decide upon the fate of your open positions. You should remember that questions can be created for any system you work with.

    Crypto Market Is Ready to Burst in 2020

    Author: Anna Rostova


    2020 for the crypto market is a time of a quality breakout, or at least this is what the users and market participants are expecting. Below, we will discuss some of the expected events and changes.

    What will happen to the Bitcoin (BTC)?

    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-conten...itcoin-btc.jpg

    The year 2020 will be crucial for the leading cryptocurrency. In May, the reward for mining will be decreased by 50% at once, amounting to 6.25 BTC instead of 12.5 BTC now per mined verified block. This event can change the whole picture of mining.

    In 202, the BTC will go on spreading among users. Its market share will amount to 60-70%, which will make it stronger and more expensive. In our case, this is a positive factor for the BTC price.

    Another supporting driver of the BTC price is the extension of the Lightning Network system. This system optimizes the decentralization process, letting introduce it in applications and the principles of payment execution. Automatically, this will free the Bitcoin from the long-time market claim that the BTC has no more room for development.

    Forecasting the BTC price for a year is useless: the market is too volatile and prone to fluctuations. However, it must remain between $7,500-$15,000.

    Libra: how will it settle?

    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-conten...9/12/libra.jpg

    In 2019, Facebook caused a lot of worries to the crypto world, but its crypto project was not launched after all. No one is sure that in 2020 Libra will appear on the crypto market, because Facebook is aiming, in fact, at rivalry with the US dollar. The US government got scared and hindered the launching process.

    In the first half of 2020, Facebook will discuss the future of Libra with the regulator. The project will function if the government allows it. The potential of the project is huge, so the caution of the politicians and the greed of the users is understandable. Libra is a new phenomenon on the crypto market, and its appearance may be earthshaking.

    Copy trading: What Is It? Comparing PAMM and RAMM

    Author: Victor Gryazin


    In this review, we will get acquainted with a popular way of trading that allows you to earn on copying the trades of professional traders, which is called copy trading. It suits those who are not ready to devote themselves to trading fully but who want to make a profit using the experience of successful managers.

    What is copy trading? How to make money on it?

    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-conten...trading3-1.jpg

    Copy trading is one of the ways of investing that implies copying on your account the trades of experienced traders. The mechanism is quite simple and easy to master.

    First thing, you need to make up your mind about the service you will be using. Most services are based on well-known broker companies. In the article “How to Choose your Broker: Guide for Beginner Trader” you can find the criteria for deciding upon the company.

    Upon registering in the chosen system, you need to study trading in detail and choose one or more trustworthy traders and launch copying their trades on your account. You also must set the parameters of copying, limit the risks and specify the fee for the manager.

    You must choose the trader with great accuracy. Make sure they have a good trading history (the longer, the better), the profit level satisfies you, the maximal drawdown is acceptable, and the deposit increase is stable. To diversify risks, you can join several successful managers with different strategies.

    Later, you will be able to follow the copying of trades to your account in real-time. If with trading your deposit grows, congratulations: you have made the right choice. If the balance shrinks, and the statistics of the trader’s work worsens, you will have to think about changing the trader.

    How to Buy Apple, Uber, Facebook Stocks from a Broker: Simple Guide

    Author: Victor Gryazin


    A stock is a security representing a share of the company that has issued it. Stocks give their owner (the stockholder) the right for a share of the company's income in the form of dividends; the right to participate in managing the company; the right for a part of the company's property in the case of its liquidation.

    Why we buy stocks?

    Stocks are one of the most popular investment instruments. Apart from the small dividend income, they also allow the owner to make money on the changes in their price. If the company is developing and the economic situation is good, the stock will be growing in price, bringing a decent income to its owner.

    Stocks are normally bought on the stock market via a broker. A broker is a company, a professional market player, that is licensed to make operations on the stock market for its clients. At a broker, the client opens a trading account where they buy and sell stocks.

    How much can be earned on the stock growth?

    For successful investing, you should learn to evaluate the perspectives of the company the stocks of which you are going to buy. For this, there exist certain economic indicators, which the companies publish in their regular reports. Also, the overall political and economic situation in the world is to be assessed whether stock markets are growing or correcting.

    As an example, let us take buying of the stocks of a world-famous company Apple. The corporation regularly demonstrates good economic results, and its stocks have been growing stably for years.

    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-conten...m-1200x604.png

    This January, the stocks were trading at $150.00 per stock. Today, the price is $266.70. So, this year the growth has been around $117 per stock. In percent, the result is even more impressing: if we had bought the stocks in January, the profit by now would have been 78%! Plus, some dividends.

    Top 10 Forex Indicators That Every Trader Needs

    Author: Victor Gryazin


    Indicators have long been introduced to the trading systems of many traders. As a minimum, they are of good help in chart analysis, as a maximum, they are the base of the whole trading system. Algorithmic trading, which means automatizing the work and creating trading robots, is also mostly based on the signals of various indicators.

    In this article, we will review the ten most popular indicators for the analysis of and trading on financial markets.

    Moving Average

    It will hardly be too bold to say that the Moving Average is the queen of all indicators, as it is among the simplest and the most popular ones. Apart from the immediate use, it serves as the base for some more complicated indicators.

    The Moving Average is the average price indicator for a certain period. There are several types of Moving Averages: the simple, exponential, smoothed, linear weighted ones. They are slightly different in terms of calculating but their essence remains the same: they demonstrate the dynamics of the averaged price during a certain period.

    A Moving Average is represented as a line directly on the price chart. It shows the direction of the trend well: a declining MA indicates a downtrend, while a growing MA means an uptrend. To get trading signals, we normally use two or more Mas for different periods.

    RoboForex adds the netting position accounting system to R Trader


    RoboForex has added the netting position accounting system to R Trader terminal. Earlier, the platform offered the hedging accounting system only.

    From now on, you can choose a more preferable accounting system when opening a new R Trader account.

    What is the difference between Netting and Hedging?

    Netting is a classic position accounting system, which allows you to have only one position in the same instrument in any direction.

    The hedging system allows to open multiple positions in the same instrument in different directions.


    To find out what accounting system your account has, check the account list in R Trader terminal or in the account card in your Members Area.

    What Do You Know About Forex Trading Strategies?

    Author: Timofey Zuev


    Before talking about strategies, it would be better to find out what strategies exist at all, which strategy suits which trader and what strategy to choose. Searching for your best strategy through trial and error may take years, that is why this issue requires a systemic approach.

    Mechanical and discretionary strategies

    https://blog.roboforex.com/ru/wp-con...strategies.jpg

    First of all, strategies can be divided into two groups: mechanical and discretionary ones. A mechanical strategy will require from a player nothing else but disciplined trading, because decision-making is built in the very algorithm of the strategies. The advantage of such strategies is the lack of emotional involvement into trading and of feeling responsible for its result: all steps are prescribed by the algorithm. Drawbacks are the very same – in case the market changes, the algorithm may start generating losing trades that the trader will have to perform without question, watching their money disappear.

    As you may see, being a mere executor is not that easy. If the trader does not understand the market and the reasons for making certain steps, this may let them down, because at some point they may start sabotaging the prescribed trades. However, if you have created the strategy yourself and you are sure that it is based on the fundamental rules of the market, it will be much easier to follow such strategy. My experience and that of my fellow traders suggests that the most successful strategies are those that blend in mechanical algorithms and independently made decisions...
