Simplifying Complicated Charts

On the Trader's Blog you've heard us talk plenty about how to simplify your trading. As a matter of fact, you've heard Adam preach about keeping it simple over the years. Today we've asked Bill Poulos from Profit's Run to share with us how he keeps his trading method simple by using a simple indicator that we could all benefit from. To find out more about Bill Poulos visit his website here.

One of the problems that many traders run into is trying to find the perfect combination of indicators that will lead them to the perfect trading method.  Not only is this a problem for new traders but we find that many experienced traders continue to over complicate their charts with too many indicators.  They often think that the more indicators they can get on the chart the more successful they will be.     This is usually not the case and only leads to more confusion on the part of our entries. The concept of keeping things simple works especially well when applying it to our trading strategies.  The key for many trading methods is to simply know the trend of the pair and then know when to buy or sell that pair.

Why losing traders look for methods that win 80% or more of the time

While doing research on the current state of the Forex trading landscape, I discovered something surprising.

Losing Forex traders appear to be enamored with 'winning percentages' when selecting a forex trading method.

The irony in that statement should be obvious -- if the 'winning percentage' of the forex method is so important, how can these traders still be net losers?

Because, I believe, winning percentage is the wrong concept to focus on. In fact, I find winning forex traders look for methods that have winning percentages closer to 50-60%. And, they also have one more 'secret' that losing traders DON'T have.

Why Trading Forex Now Beats The Stock Market

Today's post is from an old friend, frequent blogger (see previous posts), and trading expert Bill Poulos from Profits Run. With Bill focusing a ton of his time on Forex, and with the Forex market getting so much attention, I wanted to ask Bill to come and give us some of his latest insights into what he's found. The article below is a great one, and if you have time I'd highly recommend checking out his new "Risk Eraser" technique video!


You've likely heard the term Forex lately -- it continues to be the hottest trading trend today. That's a trend I believe will continue but today, I wanted to take a few moments to point out why as well as how you can best take advantage of trading foreign currencies without being taken advantage of.

Just a couple of years ago, the foreign exchange markets were dominated by the big brokers and major banks around the world. Today, the 'little guys' have gotten in on the action -- and the growth in currency trading has increased from $1.9 trillion to nearly $3 trillion in that short space of time (that's the average daily turnover in the markets - a 50% growth in turnover).

But why should you trade Forex?
