Sterling drops to record low!

Thursday, December 27, 2007
Sterling dropped to a record low versus the euro on concern that the Bank of England may lower its interest rates again in the beginning of next year. The greenback is soft across the board as momentum market participants took profits.

The BOE rate cut speculation arose last week when the Bank of England released its December monetary policy meeting minutes, which showed a unanimous vote for a 25-bp rate cut this month. Also, the bank heightened the impact of recent financial market turmoil and the consequent credit market tightness on the economy and inflation. The BOE and Fed are both likely to have a couple of rate cuts in the coming year, which weigh on their currencies.

In contrast, the European Central Bank may keep its benchmark rate unchanged. The euro rose to 0.7311 versus the sterling, and tested a resistance level at 1.45 against the dollar.

Financial markets in Australia, Hong Kong and the UK are closed for the Boxing Day. Currency trading will remain very light towards the end of this year.

Tomorrow will see US durable goods orders report, weekly job report and consumer confidence. Durable goods orders are seen to rise 2.0% in November, compared with a 0.2% decline in the previous month. Core durable goods orders are likely to increase 0.3%, versus a prior month¡¯s reading of ¨C0.4%. Weekly initial claims are expected to change from 346k to 342k. US consumer confidence is estimated to fell from 87.3 to 86.5.

EURUSD will face interim resistance at 1.45, followed by 1.4530 and 1.4550. Additional ceilings will emerge at 1.4580, backed by 1.46. Support starts at 1.4470, backed by 1.4430, 1.44 and 1.4380. Subsequent floors are eyed at 1.4350.

GBPUSD encounters interim resistance at 1.98, backed by 1.9850 and 1.9870. Subsequent ceilings will emerge at 1.99, followed by 1.9930 and 1.9980. On the downside, support begins at 1.9760, followed by 1.9730 and 1.97. Additional floors are eyed at 1.9670, backed by 1.9650 and 1.9620.

USDJPY encounters interim resistance at 114.50, backed by 114.80 and 115. Subsequent ceilings will emerge at 115.30, followed by 115.50 and 116. On the downside, support begins at 114.20 and 114, followed by 113.80. Additional floors are eyed at 113.50, backed by 113.20 and 113.

The Yen Slumps further!

Friday, December 21, 2007
Hey all,

I have been on a forex books posting spree for quite a while. Now, going back to whats actually happening in our Fx Market, The yen has suffered a major setback against all major currencies on Friday trading session. The greenback managed its best against the Yen since the 7th of November.

Sterling Goes in deep waters


The sterling continued to drift lower, falling to a record low versus the euro at 0.7254 as market sentiment anticipates the increased likelihood for additional BoE rate cuts in the coming year. With recent economic data from the UK remaining soft, combined with dovish commentary from the BoE – we expect the Bank to cut rates by another 25-basis point in January and possibility for further easing in the first half.

Retail sales were largely unchanged at 4.4% y/y, while slightly higher on the monthly reading to 0.4%.

Now, focussing on more statistics

Cable holds steady near 1.9830, with support seen at 1.98, backed by 1.9765 and 1.9720. Additional floors are eyed at 1.97, followed by 1.9650 and 1.96. On the upside, resistance begins at 1.9875, followed by 1.99 and 1.9930. Subsequent ceilings will emerge at 1.9960 and 2.

The Simplest Introduction to Forex Trading Ever

Plenty of Forex Articles have been written which aim to Introduce Forex Trading to a complete newbie/beginner. Even we have a few basic forex articles aiming to target that particular audience.

But looking back on them I thought, they were a little to complex for my liking. Since I have started the Beginner section I am writing this Introduction keeping that in mind.

So here goes the Simplest Introduction to Forex/Forex Trading/Currency Trading/Day Trading

Forex is the most fluid and largest Financial market in the world!
Forex literally stands for Foreign Exchange. And thats what it does-- Exchange Foreign Currencies.

Now why exchange Foreign Currencies?

Well, For Profit of course! Forex Trading is the business of buying and selling Currencies.

So basically, we look to buy currencies when they are of low cost hoping to sell them and making a profit when they become costlier.

Traditionally, Forex Trading( FX/day trading/currency trading/Foreign exchange/currency Exchange refer to one and the same) was reserved for Banks and advanced Investors.

But, Today nearly a person in every family in the United states is involved in Forex Trading.

Which brings us to another question. Why Forex? Why to invest in Forex instead of the huge number of other business/investment opportunities.

To answer this particular question, you must read this article of mine -- Why Trade Forex?

Now, moving ahead-- Why the sudden boom in Forex Trading.

This has been a direct result of advent of PC and the Internet which has brought the largest financial market online.

The Currencies are always traded in pairs. Most of the Forex Market is depended on the Four major currency pairs EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, and USD/CHF.

EUR=EURO
USD=US dollar
JPY= Japanese Yen
GBP=Great Britain Pound
CHF=Swiss Franc

Each pair will have a particular value at a particular time.

To give a THEORITICAL example

if USD/JPY was equal to 1.00 today. That means that for one US dollar , you could buy one Japanese Yen.

The next day Imagine the Same USD/JPY now equals 1.5 , This means the USD dollar value has increased and now you can buy 1.5 JPY for 1 US dollar.

So, we look to make a profit by buying currencies that we think will have their value incremented in the near future.

Well, This brings us to the end of this Article.

Hope I was clear, If you have any doubts , do leave a comment!
and if you liked it do give a stumble or a digg!

Mastering Elliot Wave: Presenting the Neely Method: The First Scientific, Objective Approach to Market Forecasting with the Elliott Wave Theory

Here's a review!

Elliot wave principle, Elliot wave, Mastering Elliot Wave, Glenn Neely, Eric hall, Forex ebooks, free downloads, forex ebook



If you are looking for a general introduction to Elliott Wave theory and practice, then this book is definetly not for you. In that case, I rather suggest starting with Prechter's "Elliott Wave Principle" from 1979.

If you are prepared to spend a lot of time working through the large number of conditions contained within this book, however, (especially using your own data) you will find this a most rewarding endeavor. Wave theory is not for the faint-hearted, it requires a lot of patience and application to give you the building blocks to come up with a view of the market.






Trading for a living by Alexander Elder

Sunday, December 16, 2007
TRADING FOR A LIVING BY DR ALEXANDER ELDER, forex ebooksAnother excellent book for our readers for free!!

"TRADING FOR A LIVING BY DR ALEXANDER ELDER"

DOWNLOAD HERE!

Below is a review of the book!

Dr. Elder is a practicing psychiatrist. He is of Russian origin and today he is well-known in Russia after his Moscow course of lectures on short-term investment in 1996.

The first half of the book focuses simply on psychology. The stock market is in fact just a reflection of the human psychology. As the Dr Alexander Elder points out in this book"Trading for a living" , so many people who are educated think that because they are "school smart" that they must be able to master the financial markets just as well. It's the psychology and the mentality that goes into it. The author likens a typical losing trader (in other words, most traders!) to an alcoholic in denial. Traders are addicted to losing money. They get such a thrill from trading that they don't care if they win or lose.

The second half (Trading for a Living) is the core of the book. It is various trading strategies and technical information. If you're an experienced trader, you'll recognize most of it. The rule is simple: "buy low, sell high" or "short high, cover low". I think the author did an excellent job of covering a wide variety of strategies and trading tools. If you are new to trading, it may confuse the daylights out of you.

This book is a must have for anyone venturing into online trading. Dr. Elder lays out the three essentials of becoming a successful trader: Mind, Method and Money Management.

1. Mind: The psychological aspect of trading. Tells you to observe your own emotions as you trade.

2. Method: Technical analysis. Almost every major indicator is discussed here.

3. Money Management: Gives you some tips on how much to risk.

I have found a lot more detailed information in this book compared to the ones i have read so far. I would rate the book 10/10 if not more than that. It is truely and really a good piece of work . If you don't mind the high price, buy the real version or else download from us for FREE!!!

We are committed to provide highly informational and popular Forex ebooks for free to our visitors.

The book is really worth it though. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend it to the traders who look forward to improve the quality of their lives.

This one is different. The author, Jake Bernstein, who has given decent forex books in the past strongly advocates real day trading, when no securities ever kept overnight. Therefore, his techniques are usable for very short term trading only.

10 Essential tips for online Forex Traders

Monday, December 10, 2007
Hey,

Here is the latest addition to our articles section.

10 ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR NOVICE FOREX TRADERS

If you are new to the world of online FOREX trading you will realise its not as simple as people make out to be or what the ever so promising Forex Brokers promise.
The fact is most people who dont know the in and out of online forex trading will lose and lose quickly.

To win at currency trading online you need to have the right FOREX strategy - Here are 10 tips and if you incorporate them in your trading strategies, you should get a head start in your thirst for consistent FX profits

1. Don't believe the hype
You will see lots of people selling forex ebooks for "only" $100 which promises to make you strike gold in the world of online forex trading. Yes , their is good advice out there - you can get all the information you need free on the internet.

2. Don't day trade
The biggest myth of FOREX trading is you can make money FOREX day trading or Forex Scalping.
You can't!
Many novice traders fall for this myth and lose quickly and wonder why.
As I always say All short term volatility is random and there is no way of predicting where prices may go" up or down", so you might as well flip a coin.

For more on Forex Scalping , read this Article

If you want proof that FOREX day trading systems don't work, ask any vendor for a real time profits track record over the long term and you will not be able to fine one.

3. Work smart not hard
There is a lot of difference in hard work and smart work.You don'thave to work hard in online FOREX Trading, you need to work smart. This means focusing on getting the RIGHT FOREX education and learning and understanding the FOREX tools that actually work in the market not just hypothetically . If you focus on getting the right Forex information, you should be able to learn how to trade in a fortnight.
You will not be rewarded in FOREX trading market for working hard and spending lot of time, you get rewarded for being right and that means working smart.

4. Risk = Reward
If you don't like the idea of risk forget currency trading and pick up something else .
Many traders simply want to avoid as much risk as they can, putting stops to close, or snatching profits. If that's you - you will NEVER achieve currency trading success.
You need to be open minded and accept risk and losses to succeed in online FOREX Trading.

This is because to be a successful Forex trader, you need to be a enterpreneur and have to take risk, not avoid it. No Risk, no reward!

5. Do It on your own
Have confidence in your ability to understand the Forex Market. You are responsible for your own success.
If you follow someone else's strategy you will not have the right mindset to succeed. If you lack discipline and might want to quit after suffering a few losses. Do it on your own and your chances of success are manifolded.

6. Get a simple method
Simple methods always fare better than complicated ones, as they are much more easier to understand and follow.
There is never a correlation between how complicated a trading system is and how much profit it will make.
If you are just starting out in online forex trading, use support and resistance, a breakout methodology and some confirming indicators and that's just about it.
The above way of trading is perfect and will help you should get you the big profits from the big moves.

7. Trade Breakouts
A timeless way to trade FOREX markets.
It works well and will continue to work, simply look in our ebooks section for this powerful methodology.

8. Be patient
You do not get rewarded for how frequently you trade FOREX online- However, You do get rewarded for being quick on your feet and spotting and acting on the best trades and these don't come around very often.
Be patient and only trade FOREX signals from your system - don't be tempted to just trade for the sake of trading Forex.

9. Be realistic
There is potential for huge money in Forex Market, so what's realistic? The best Forex traders compound around 50 - 100% annualy so this is a good number to aim for or may be slightly lower.
These gains will compound quickly and build real wealth in the longer term.
Be realistic and don't try to become an overnight millionaire.

10. Know your edge

Freedom Rocks trading platform review:Freedom rocks ROCKS!

Freedom Rocks trading platform review:Freedom rocks ROCKS!

Hey, here is a review of freedom rocks platform. It has as many critics as its supporters.

Yeah.. so lets get started with the review!

Yes, it does have an MLM aspect to it IF you want to share the product with others. It is a refreshing twist to finally have a product one can use and make money WITHOUT telling another soul, if they want to. So for me, whether or not you like or not, or are indiferent to MLM/NWM really doesn't have any bearing on what the product is and what it can do in helping me/others diversify their investments by entering the FOREX market. So, I say to those who hate MLM, ..JUST GET OVER IT !!!

I've been curious about the FOREX market for quite a few years now, but whenever I took a look at learning it, I was always leary of the systems out there that cost so much and have you try to outguess the market by reading charts, etc. Plus, those late night hours really didn't seem worth it.

So, last fall (about Sept 06) when someone I know emailed me about FreedomRocks, I became curious, but put it on the 'back burner' for a month or so. Then, after watching the movie and listening to a couple of calls (one with the owner and designer of the product), I decided to use the FREE trial to see if it was as easy as it was made out to be. So, i decided to make a little plunge in the freedom rocks platform.

Also, the owners were quite conservative and answered to questions straight forwardly. No tall claims or hype thats not worth with freedom rocks.

So, I invested some time in the demo on the FREE trial beginning about the end of Nov, '06. I was lucky enough to extend my trial through December. I was very much impressed with the ease of their system, and the returns in Dec were pity decent.

So, onthe 1st of January I decided to pay the monthly fee of $100 to use the software, and kept demo trading. At one particular point of time I had around a dozen demos opened with 3 brokers using various strategies to see how things would play out.

Since some of my demos had quite high margins (against the advice of FreedomRocks I must add) I did have 3 of the dozen that margined out by the end of January. Still, all the demos that were left and did have the margins low as well as better currencies chosen, did very well indeed.

So, on Feb 28 I took the actual plunge and opened a live account. For the next 10 days or so I watched as my account dipped to a 50% 'paper loss'. It was kind of 'interesting', I will say, but I just kept on doing what the system is set-up to do and waited for things to work out.

What I learned through that period was a confidence in this system that it DOES work as it claims AS LONG as you follow the system to wach single and don't try to 'change/adjust' anything. Even though this downturn in early March was global and massive, my account DID NOT come close to being margined out.

I also took note of Freedom rocks suggestion to take out profits periodically when the account is up until you have your inital investment back in your pocket, and that's what I have done. It took me about four months to get my initial investment back and now I am trading essentially on 'house funds'.

Todate, even though I am down in paper losses of nearly 30% , I know that I am earning interest daily and always buying low and selling high, so I can't loose (unless I get a margin call, which I've taken care of by following the system and what I've heard on the company calls).

For those whose experience has been negative with freedom rocks and there are quite a few of these people it might be a good idea to ask yourself a few questions, assuming you can be really truthful with the answers you give. I say this because I see things being said that are not what I've been hearing from the company for nearly 9 months now.

An interesting list of questions to answer for those who traded and lost with freedomrocks

So, did you follow the system verbatum? Did you listen to the corp calls where Mark answers anyones quesions about anything to do with the system and the market? Did you go through the excellent webinar trainings and follow everything laid out there and in print to set-up your trades? Did you demo trade long enough to really be comfortable and confident with this system BEFORE you choose to open a live account?



I'll end this 'reviewl' by asking you a couple more questions: How much dollars have you lost with other FOREX programs 'promising' to teach you how to profit in this risky but exciting market? What are you going to do now that you've cancelled one of the fewbut simple to learn and use systems for trading in the FOREX and for hopefully profiting in the FOREX.....OR, have you now totally given up on ever profiting from the FOREX?

Wishing you all the very best in trading or in whatever you choose to do for your investments.
