?How To? Start Trading The Forex Market? (Part 7)

HOW DO Economic Events impact Global Currencies:

When I asked several traders about their thoughts about using fundamental analysis as a part of their trading decisions, I have received two opposite responses.

RESPONSE of Trader A

Fundamentals that you read about are typically useless as the market has already discounted the price. I am looking at (1) the long term trend, (2) the current chart pattern and (3) identifying a good entry point to buy or to sell.

RESPONSE of Trader B

I almost always trade on a market view. I don't trade simply on technical information alone. I use technical analysis and it is terrific, but I can't initiate or hold a position unless I understand why the market should move.

There is a great deal of hype attached to technical analysis by some technicians who claim that it predicts the future.

Technical analysis tracks the past; it does not predict the future. You have to use your own intelligence to draw conclusions about what the past activity of some traders say about the future activity of other traders.

For me, technical analysis is like a thermometer.

Fundamentalists who say they are not going to pay any attention to the charts are like a doctor who says he's not going to take a patient's temperature. If you want to be a successful trader in the market, you always want to know where the market is- up ? down- trending or choppy .You want to know everything you can about the market to give you an edge.

Technical analysis reflects the vote of the entire marketplace and, therefore, does pick up unusual behavior. By definition, anything that creates a new chart pattern is something unusual.

It is very important to study the details of price action to see and observe. Studying the charts is absolutely crucial and alerts to existing disequilibrium and potential changes.

For forex traders, the fundamentals are everything that makes a country tick.

The release of economic & inflation indicators (i.e., consumer spending, employment cost index, government spending, producer price index, etc.), political actors, government policy or an individual event can set the market in a frenzy. These have to be considered when making the decision ? to trade or not to trade.?

Technical analysis, is a way of using historical price data in different ways to predict the future price of a currency pair.

Fundamental analysis is a very effective way to forecast economic conditions, but not necessarily exact market prices, and you SHOULD trade in agreement with the supporting technical indicators.

Foreign exchange traders put the most emphasis on technical analysis, because traders around the world use similar charts and tools in predicting market trends.

The reason the FOREX market can be so predictable some times is that if the majority are using the same graph for determining patterns and trends, then it is highly likely that they will act in a similar manner.

So several thousand traders who have all charted the same resistance line, for example, will most likely either set their trades and direction conform to that line.

When fundamental data is made available to the public there is a reaction from investors and speculators.

Information in the form of news and economic indicators is more vague than that of technical indicators. There is a lot of gray area in this type of analysis. The market will ultimately react to how people think the economic data compares to the current market situation.

Economic indicators usually reveal information that "Should cause a currency to go up in price" or "May cause a currency to go down". The words ?SHOULD? & ?MAY? in the quotes above reveal the ambiguity of the fundamental data.

Here is an example of what analyzing fundamental data is like. Let's suppose there are six economic indicators (there are a lot more).

Let's call our six indicators 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Now we wait for the data from our indicators to be published in a financial magazine or at an online source. We get the readings for our economic data for the EURO as following:

Indicator 1: is in a range where the Euro may go up

Indicator 2: is in a range where the Euro should go up

Indicator 3: is in a range where the Euro could go down

Indicator 4: is in a range where the Euro usually goes down

Indicator 5: is in a range where the Euro could go up

Indicator 6: is in a range where the Euro may go down

By looking at the above indicators, you don't know what the Euro is going to do. Furthermore, currencies are always traded in pairs. So you would have to get the fundamental data for another currency pair and compare it with the EURO. I think you can image that this is not a simple task.

I do not want to discourage you away from fundamental data. The best way to learn is to learn about one piece of economic data at a time. Eventually you will build a puzzle from all of the fundamental and technical data and make more informed trading decisions.

A Look Back At Forex Trading - 4/18/06

Cable final broke through the super resistance at 1.7600 yesterday. Even though we had a losing trade last night, I have to say I am glad to see that tight range behind us. Maybe now we will see a few prolonged and definable trends.

If this is the case it will make it much easier to make a good profitable trade. On the other hand Cable could just as easily slide right back into a consolidation sideway market. Only time will tell.

We we lick our wound from last night and bid farewell to the 1.7600 resistance level. It served us well over the past few months holding on at least a half a dozen occasions. Lets take a look at last night and see what it took to break that resistance. Was it a 20, 40 or 60 pip move, no way? It took a lot more than that to break through, it was a 150 pip move that did the job. Only a move of this magnitude would have the momentum to break and hold above the established resistance.

Last weeks trades were not bad, but last night was not so much. We now have a possible trending market to play for the first time since the first of February.

Tonight we are trading around 1.7710. We are looking for a buy for the first time in months, and some of our traders are going to play both a buy and a sell at opposite end of the expected range.

There is some support around 1.7706, and even more around 1.7680. The first resistance is going to be around 1.7750. We do like to caution traders on making too aggressive of an entry, the 1 hour MACD is still on the sell side of the signal line, although there appears to be some divergence on this chart recently. To learn more about how we teach traders to successfully trade the forex market, be sure to get yourself a top quality forex trading education. One that includes either a forex seminar or a forex trading course.

We find these support and resistance levels using a set of technical indicators and other variables that we have found to be most successful for us. We use several other indicators and a variety of technical analysis techniques to enter and exit all of our trades. Every trader will have a different combination of indicators that makes the most sense to them.

Forex Price Charts

There are two kinds of Forex traders- the traders who use fundamental analysis and the traders who use technical analysis.
I prefer the technical analysis, which ignores fundamental factors. Technical analysis is applied to the price action of the market.
By using technical analysis traders can make short-term forecasts, which are very difficult with fundamental analysis, more suitable to making long-term forecasts.

Technical analysts use different technical studies and interpret them to predict market direction or to generate buy and sell signals.
By using charts in Forex technical analysis we can predict price movements.

You might think that reading the charts is very difficult, but you must know that FOREX charts, as opposed to charts used for day trading stocks, are easier to interpret and use. The Forex charts are reflection of a country's economy, which is slower moving and is more stable compared to the future and daily drama of company reports, Wall Street analysts and shareholder demands.

Currency charts have also the tendency to develop strong trends, and although the Forex market is volatile, it is more predictable than other markets. The good thing is that you have only a few currencies to analyze, not tens of thousands of stocks.

The complimentary charting software provided by good brokers is sufficient for predicting currencies pair's movements, but you must learn to read the charts and you must learn how to interpret your technical studies.

As I mentioned the technical analysis in the Forex market is easier than in the other markets, but it still might seem a difficult task for new traders.
There are a lot of different resources which are helpful in learning technical analysis. The easiest way is watching videos which explain it, and although the Forex video courses are usually expensive, you can find some cheaper video courses, too.
