Here's a powerful, easy-to-use long-term trading strategy that you can use in the Forex market. This particular strategy employs the monthly Trade Triangles for both trend and timing. Unlike our short-term and intermediate-term FX strategies, the long-term approach uses a "stop and reverse" type method.
This particular strategy is far less active than both our short and intermediate-term FX strategies. This trading strategy is best suited for long-term investors who enjoy holding a position in the market for months at a time. Unlike the other strategies, this long-term strategy requires that you only enter your SAR order(s) on average once a month. This 5 minute video walks you through the actual trading signals of this strategy from 5/20/09. At the end of the video, you'll be able to see every trade and how each trade fared. Nothing has been left out, you'll see every profitable and losing trade over almost a 5 year period.
MarketClub's long-term FX strategy captures the large moves in the Forex markets in a way that is different from other trading approaches. Like any trading strategy, good money management and diversification reduces your risk and magnifies your opportunities. For any kind of trading you need to manage your losses and MarketClub's long-term FX trading strategy helps take care of that for you.
What are the pros and cons of this particular trading strategy? [Read more...]
Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Wednesday, the 5th of March.
There's no question about it, Ukraine and Putin have been causing havoc in the world’s markets. While it's easy to get emotional and jump on one side of the market or the other because of the news, that really is no way to trade. The Trade Triangles are free of human emotion and tend to keep you in the big trends and alert you to new trends as they develop.
From an intellectual level, I don't think that Russia is finished with the Crimea or Ukraine. There's going to be a lot of diplomatic talk, but the bottom line is going to be what Putin wants, he is going to get, no matter what the cost. The Chinese have a saying, "May you live in interesting times" and certainly these are more than interesting times.
So what's ahead? It seems that we are almost at a tipping point in some markets and in other markets it would appear as though we are heading into a multi-year bull market. Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) I believe has made a major reversal and has embarked on a multi-year bull market. [Read more...]
Here's a short-term trading strategy that you can use in the Forex market. Before I get into the nuts and bolts of the trading system, here are some quick background notes on the Forex market.
The foreign exchange market is the largest, most liquid financial market in the world. According to the Bank for International Settlements, the average daily turnover in the global Forex market is estimated at $3.98 trillion. Some trading firms specializing in foreign exchange put the average even higher, with daily turnover in excess of $4 trillion.
#1. It is the largest asset class in the world, leading to high liquidity.
#2. It trades continuously 24 hours a day except weekends, i.e. trading from 22:00 GMT on Sunday (Sydney) until 22:00 GMT Friday (New York).
#3. Low margins compared with other markets like stocks or fixed income.
Check with your broker or an FX broker for margin requirements and commissions.
Now that you have some background on Forex trading, let's take a look at exactly how this short-term trading strategy works. I will be using MarketClub's Trade Triangle technology which is easy to use and follow. This particular strategy employs the weekly Trade Triangles for trend and the daily Trade Triangles for timing.
This particular strategy is best suited for individuals who like to be active in the market. The short-term strategy requires entering orders every few days. In this short 5 minute video I am going to have you follow along as I walk you through the actual trading signals of this strategy from the beginning of 2013. At the end of the video, you'll be able to see every trade and how each trade fared, nothing has been left out.
In trading there is no "Holy Grail," believe me, as everyone has been looking for one since trading first began. However, you don't need a "Holy Grail to trade Forex, you just need a trading system that has stood the test of time. For FX trading or any kind of trading you need to manage your losses and this short-term trading strategy takes care of that for you.
Now, let's take a look at the pros and cons of this particular trading strategy.
• Easy to follow and implement.
• No grey areas, the program shows you with visual Triangles the market's short-term direction.
• This trading strategy is best suited for active investors who are comfortable being active in the market.
• If you are comfortable trading short-term, there really are no drawbacks to this strategy.
Be sure to watch the video all the way through to the end, as I share with you some FX history that is pretty much unknown to the general Forex markets.
If you decide that this particular strategy is right for you, paper trade it for a while and get the feel of how it works.
Every success using this short-term FX trading strategy.
P.S. Later this week I will be posting FX strategies for intermediate and long-term traders. Stay tuned!
Every position is the right position when things go exactly as planned. Unfortunately, things do not often go exactly as planned in the market. When all goes right, it is easy to make money but when things go wrong losses follow.
So, when things start to go wrong, what can you do? How can you get out of your bad position that is losing money and into the right position quickly and efficiently and get back to making money?
The answer is morphing! Morphing is the process in which the wrong position is quickly and efficiently changed to the right position by simply adding to or subtracting from the current position based on an understanding of synthetic positions. Morphing is how the professional floor traders manage their positions to adjust to movements in stock price, time, and volatility.

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Wednesday, the 26th of February.
Are the markets going to continue moving higher or reverse and retest their lows again? There seems to be a disconnect in the indices with new highs mainly on the NASDAQ, thanks to Tesla, Netflix and some other tech leaders. The S&P 500 seems to be lagging and the DOW is in a funk. Many professional traders will be looking for the tone of the market today, does it seem positive or negative? One of the tricks they will probably employ is to give the market a half hour or even an hour to set its trading range for the day. Should the market move below the low of the first 30 or 60 minutes of the day, then there's a pretty good chance that you could see further selling come into the market later on in the day. Conversely, should the market break over the high of the first 30 or 60 minutes of the day, look for upside momentum to continue. Let’s see how events play out.
Larry reveals techniques for traders like you to help you control your emotions and transform you into a disciplined, emotion-free trader. It is the most important concept you can learn in order to be a successful trader.
If you can master this skill, you can be very successful in this business. If we can't control the market and what it will do, then the only thing that will make us successful is if we can control ourselves. And that's easier said than done. But it is the reality of successful trading.

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Tuesday, the 11th of February.
What are they and why do they matter? Oftentimes bull and bear markets come to an end on a Tuesday, why is that? It all has to do with momentum. Typically a market builds up momentum over the weekend and that enthusiasm tends to carry over into Monday and early Tuesday trading. This is the same momentum rule I use for the "52-Week New Highs on a Friday" trading strategy.
Rule #1: On a new 52-week high when the market closes at or close to its high on a Friday, buy and go home long for the weekend. [Read more...]

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Friday, the 7th of February.
After getting pummeled the past several weeks, the markets recovered some this week and appear as though the indices are going to close out either flat or with modest gains. Many popular stocks are showing gains on average of about 3%, not a bad move given how much they were pushed down.
Gold and crude oil also moved in the same direction, each gaining on average a little less than 1% for the week. The mighty Dollar on the other hand did not fare so well this past week, losing close to 1% in heavy interbank trading. [Read more...]
