Free Forex Strategies - A Basic Guide

Forex trading is a niche territory. It requires an understanding of the market trends, knowledge about investment laws and, above all, the ability to time entry and exit. While the market is not as complicated as it may sound, it certainly calls for sound trading decisions to make profits. Free forex strategies are some of the industry secrets which will help you to increase profit margins, while playing safe.

Free Forex Strategies To Get You Started

Here are some of the free forex strategies that have worked for several traders:

Purchasing on margin: Here, the trader suffers from significant amount of risk. However, it also opens the door to major profits. When purchasing on margins, the broker offers leverage to the trader. This allows the trader to invest more than the real worth of his account. Considering the risk factors involved here, the trader should have expertise in timing entry and exit to remain profitable.

Stop Loss Order: Here, the trader predefines the price level for the currency pair which is not expected to stay open. This strategy helps to trade profitably while limiting the possibility of losses.

Rely on Simple Moving Average: Also known as SMA, Simple Moving Average is the mean exchange value of a currency pair over a period of time. Considering SMA for any currency pair gives a rough idea of the buying and selling parameters. Most trading platforms generate SMA automatically to assist the traders with investing decisions.

Range trading: Although it is a time-taking procedure, analyzing historical levels helps to reduce risks to a great extent. Levels are the extreme values within which the currency pair has moved in a given period of time. Understanding levels reduces the risk, but also reduces the probability of significant profits. Levels are usually for those investors who want to play safe.

Managed account: This strategy is meant for those individuals who want to invest, and not trade, in the currency market. This arrangement works similar to the mutual fund industry. You invest money in the currency market and allow a professional trader to trade with your money. While it reduces the profit margin, your money can work well under the umbrella of an experienced trader.

Free forex strategies are not a sure-shot route to profits. They are highly useful to learn smart trading during the initial years. However, as traders gain experience, they tend to develop individual tricks that work for them. Following popular trading strategies is especially useful in volatile market situations.

Commoditizing the world

Let's discuss commodities; With the latest Enron situation, it is important to understand the way things work. A commodity is anything useful, especially a transportable agricultural product or mining product. This comes from the Latin word "commoditas" meaning roughly advantage, convenience. So then what is a commodity? Well we consider Gold, Silver, wheat, corn, pork bellies, coffee, etc all commodities. If you look in the back of the WSJ or Investors Business Daily you will see a listing of all the commodities traded on the commodities exchange. Enron made some errors no doubt, but let's not judge all commodity markets in haste. Commodity trading works best when there is a stable instrument of trade. Sometimes the instrument of trade is actually the commodity. If you looked most countries of the world today you would find that there are three basic instruments of trade; money, as in currency, precious metals and gems, drugs; like cocaine, opium, and

Virtual Currency Games

Every little boy's (and many grown men's) dream of making a living by playing video games is edging closer to reality. The recent release of HunterCoin and the in-development VoidSpace, games which reward players in digital currency rather than virtual princesses or gold stars point towards a future where one's ranking on a scoreboard could be rewarded in dollars, and sterling, euros and yen. The story of the millionaire (virtual) real estate agent... Digital currencies have been slowly gaining in maturity both in terms of their functionality and the financial infrastructure that enables them to be used as a credible alternative to non-virtual fiat currency. Though Bitcoin, the 1st and most well known of the crypto-currencies was created in 2009 there have been forms of virtual currencies used in video games for more than 15 years. 1997's Ultima Online was the first notable attempt to incorporate a large scale virtual economy in a game. Players could collect gold coins

Could This Be a Great & Extreme Reversal?

The EURGBP has been on of the best currency pairs to trade since the referendum. And it looks ready to kick off again... False Break Reversal The FBR is one of the great reversal patterns. They show up time and again but can catch us out because we've been conditioned to stay with the dominant trend. It started last Friday with the Harami, inside day. Monday broke lower following through, so it seemed, with the down trend running since July. By the end of the day, it had reversed, leaving behind a long wick that turned the day's trading into a Hammer, one of the best price action reversal candles. Tuesdays price action confirmed the FBR. The rule is that when price comes back above the high of the downside breakout candle, the FBR is set. Earlier sell trades closed and then reversed. That's exactly what we have done. Hikkake An added technical reversal is the Hikkake. It's formed by at least three candles, starting with the Harami. Following the break lower, recovery on
