  • Получение прибыли трейдером на рынке достигается применением простого правила: покупать валюту дешевле, а продавать ее дороже. Для этого трейдер дает команды последовательно открывать и закрывать торговые позиции. Открытие торговой позиции осуществляется брокером(посредником) по рыночному ордеру или по исполнению отложенного ордера, а закрытие позиции по требованию трейдера или по исполнению ордеров стоп лосс (остановить убытки) и тейк профит (забрать прибыль). Основная задача тек профит и стоп лосс Задача ордера стоп лосс — ограничить возможные потери.  Тейк профит — ордер, аналогичный ордеру StopLoss, но с точностью до наоборот, его задача помочь трейдеру выйти из сделки с прибылью. Выставление ордеров TakeProfit и StopLoss позволяет трейдеру не находиться все…

  • В статьях часто встречается термин «сопровождение позиции», однако на практике большинство трейдеров-новичков слабо представляют, чем отличается сопровождение от простого наблюдения за открытой позицией. Сегодня мы познакомимся с одним из методов сопровождения позиции на валютном рынке – трейлинг стопом (Tralling Stop). Tralling Stop — плавающий стоп-лосс Как правило, трейлинг стоп используют в трендовых стратегиях при необходимости сохранения уже имеющейся прибыли, хотя его применение возможно при любой торговой тактике. К примеру, после отскока цены от линии поддержки восходящего тренда, вы открываете длинную позицию, устанавливая тейк-профит у линии сопротивления, а стоп-лосс – ниже локального минимума. Как известно, рынок непостоянен. Допустим, вследствие каких-то факторов…

  • Trading lot on the currency market is a unit of measurement of the volume of trading instruments. The standard lot means 100 thousand units of currency. That is, a long position of 1 lot on the euro/dollar pair implies the purchase of 100 thousand euros for dollars, and a short position of 2 lots on the currency pair USD/CAD - the sale of 200 thousand dollars in exchange for Canadian currency. Similar to the stock exchange, trading lot on the currency market is a standard contract size. It is worth noting that standard lots are not used in interbank practice.

  • Успешная торговля трейдера складывается из огромного количества факторов. Даже если предположить, что трейдер всегда комфортно чувствует себя на рынке (психологическая составляющая) и обладает всей полнотой знаний и умений планирования рисков, окажется, что этого недостаточно для получения прибыли на постоянной основе. Уверенность и эмоциональная стабильность должны идти рука об руку с глубоким пониманием всех рыночных процессов, и поскольку рынок многогранен и изменчив, успешный трейдер всегда имеет ориентиры, знает, где он находится, и что предпринять в той или иной ситуации. Конечно, одно только знание всех рыночных индикаторов или торговых эпизодов не сделает трейдера успешным, однако, именно от этого фактора будет зависеть эффективность…

  • What is a Gap?

    Геп (от английского gap) – это так называемый «разрыв» котировок на торговом графике, который может возникнуть, когда происходит очень быстрое, резкое изменение торговых цен. На геп проявляется как сильный «рывок» торговой цены в какую либо сторону, вследствие которого появляется заметный зазор между уровнями закрытия одного периода и открытия очередного. Геп можно наблюдать, только используя режим отображения торгового графика – отрезки-бары или японские свечи. Возникновение гепа Чаще всего Gap можно увидеть после выходных, когда после закрытия пятницы, открытие торгового дня понедельника по какой-либо валютной паре сильно отличается от предыдущего. Наглядно, это выглядит как «разрыв» цены. Смысл в том, что на выходных, биржи…

  • This year I visited ShowFx World in Kiev and I would like to tell you about the speech of Tom Hugard, one of the most successful traders in a very large hedge fund. I should point out right away that in this article I'm going to quote his words as I understood them for myself.

It's nice to hear another confirmation of my opinion from the lips of a professional of such a level. *The slides used in this article are taken from the author's presentation. Principles of 2% successful traders The first, most important principle that guides successful traders, is to buy the strong and discount the weak. What is this...

  • As a coach I cooperate with a small financial company, a professional participant of the securities market, which, among other things, provides trust management of clients' money. We have one trader, let's call him Mikhail, who for quite a long time showed very good, and most importantly stable results on a mini-account (about 3000 $). He was able to consistently bring his account up to about 5 000$ for a few months, and then withdrew 2 000 $ and started over again, repeating his success over and over again. In the end, we all agreed that Michael has abilities and skills of a trader. After examining his statement, we saw a certain stability: a good equity curve,...

  • The industry in CIS countries belongs to one of the poorly regulated segments of financial markets. The temporary absence of clear and understandable normative-legal base, regulating the activity of brokerage companies, alas, still generates many claims to brokers. Such a situation has led to the creation of unofficial organizations, which activity is somehow or other aimed to regulate the foreign exchange market. One of them is The Financial Commission. It should be understood that The Financial Commission, in fact, is not a full-fledged regulator because its functions and objectives are aimed at resolving a narrow range of problems and its ability to exert pressure on the participants in case of disputes is limited by a voluntarily accepted agreement. Official data Full name: The Financial Commission Official...

  • What is a trading plan, why do I need one and how do I make one? A trader's trading plan can be as simple or as complex as you want. Of course, a plan that is too simple is not informative enough to successfully implement key rules and/or strategies during each trading session. Conversely, if the plan is too complicated, it will be difficult for you to stick to it, and you may eventually give up using it altogether. Therefore, you need to think through the best option so that it is not time-consuming, while being detailed enough for self-analysis. The main task of a trading plan is to keep you calm and relaxed during...

  • I recently had a chance to talk to a trader who said he had a goal to increase his trading deposit from 150,000 to 250,000 rubles in about two months. The markets were kind to him, and he reached his goal even a few days earlier than planned. Now he has replenished the deposit, increasing it to 500,000 rubles. Lack of experience - the main problem of beginners His new goal is 1 000 000 rubles by the end of this year. Something tells me that this goal is unlikely to be achieved. The fact is that this guy is a rookie. He got to know the market only a few months ago, and so far...

  • In spite of the fact that scalping is one of the most technically and psychologically difficult types of trading, it has long enjoyed well-deserved popularity. Naturally, EA developers have not missed scalping either. Nowadays lots of free and paid scalper robots based on different principles and trading strategies are available to traders. Some advisors trade only at certain hours, some trade all the time. Some EAs work better and some work worse. However, as a rule, a scalping Expert Advisor shows profit for a certain period, after which there is a period of slack and a series of trades with losses. The implementation of scalping strategies in Expert Advisors often reaches the absurdity, which leads to...
