18.04.19 Trading with MACD - (Moving Average Convergence and Divergence)

34 min.

Expert: Barry Norman

MACD is one of the most popular and popular indicators for trading. M.A.C.D. is abbreviation for Moving Average Convergence Divergence. The MACD indicator uses a Moving Averages as its input and falls into the group of the lagging indicators. MACD consists of three components. There are two lines and a histogram.

MACD is placed at the bottom of the trading chart, under the price chart. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence is a relatively easy-to-use tool; however, it is crucial to understand it fully before attempting to trade using its signals. You can trade effectively by using MACD in combination with price action analysis.

04.04.19 Trading from the Economics Calendar

55.50 min.

Expert: Barry Norman

As a trader, the Economic Calendar is one of your most important tools. You will only spend one minute or less with it a day, but that one minute--every day--is crucial if you want to become a consistently profitable day trader. All the events are scheduled weeks or months in advance giving a smart trader ample time to research and investigate to be able to place proper trades when the event data is release.

What Is an Economic Calendar?

An economic calendar shows the scheduled news events or data releases related to the economy and financial markets. These include GDP, Non-Farm Payroll numbers and interest rate decisions.

Because you know these events cause volatility, which they may not want to be a part of, many traders cancel their pending orders, causing a drop-in liquidity right before a market moving event occurs. Because there are fewer orders to absorb market buy or sell orders (or stop loss orders) that are triggered by the event, the price will often "whipsaw" very quickly back and forth before choosing a more sustained direction.

In this class, we will learn how to build a trading matrix to prepare ahead of time to trade the event learning to set market neutral, market positive and market negative.

14.03.19 The Simplicity and Elegance of Moving Averages

38 min.

Expert: Barry Norman

Moving Averages are simple and elegant, these indicators are far more powerful than the look of it. In this webinar we will discuss why and how to use one or multiple moving averages. Moving averages are without a doubt the most popular trading tool. Moving averages are great if you know how to use them but most traders, however, make some fatal mistakes when it comes to trading with moving averages. In this article, I show you what you need to know when it comes to choosing the type and the length of the perfect moving average and the 3 ways how to use moving averages when making trading decisions.

A trader can create a simple trading strategy to take advantage trading opportunities using just a few moving averages (MAs) or associated indicators.

Moving averages are a frequently used technical indicator in online trading, especially over 10, 50, 100, and 200 periods. MAs are used primarily as trend indicators and also identify support and resistance levels. The two most common MAs are the simple moving average (SMA), which is the average price over a given number of time periods, and the exponential moving average (EMA), which gives more weight to recent prices.

07.02.19 Introduction to Technical Analysis

49.49 min.

Expert: Barry Norman

Technical analysis is a method of predicting price movements and future market trends by studying charts of past market action. Technical analysis is concerned with what has happened in the market, rather than what should happen and considers the price of instruments and the volume of trading and creates charts from that data to use as the primary tool.

One major advantage of technical analysis is that experienced analysts can follow many markets and market instruments simultaneously. Regardless of the method or strategy that you follow to trade, only technical analysis will give you entry points, exit points and help with market swings to set stop losses. Technical analysis can be simple or as complex as you like. There are many easy to understand technical indicators that can be combined into a great trading system.

There are five categories in CFD technical analysis theory:

1. Indicators (oscillators, e.g.: Relative Strength Index (RSI)

2. Number theory (Fibonacci numbers, Gann numbers)

3. Waves (Elliott wave theory)

4. Gaps (high-low, open-closing)

5. Trends (following moving average).

In this class, we will learn which indicators fit each category and how to combine them properly to make solid trading decisions

Chart patterns including:

  • Triangles- Ascending & Descending
  • Rectangles and Channels
  • Head and Shoulder
  • Gaps
  • Double tops and bottoms
  • Triple tops and bottoms

24.01.19 Incredible Price Patterns to Beat the Markets

39.50 min.

Expert: Barry Norman

Knowing which assets to trade is only half the battle; picking the right time and identifying the most opportune setups is your next challenge. Trading opportunities, or trade setups, generally fall into four broad categories: continuation, reversal, breakout and range-bound. Each presents opportunity if you can identify the setup and have strategies for capitalizing on it. In this class, we will learn how to take advantage of the most popular technical setups and identify trend patterns. Trading with the trend is successful, and it is also that a trader will be able to spot when a trend is potentially ending, and a new one beginning.

Knowing several ways to recognize triangles, channels, head and should, gaps and triple tops and bottom setups provides you with tools to handle nearly every market condition you’ll face. Keep in mind that these setups are not mutually exclusive; understanding the nature of trends will help you notice when a range is forming and knowing about breakouts can make you more aware of the implications of a trading within a range. The price action of an asset is always the most critical element of analysis and trading.

10.01.19 Retracement and Reversals

38.05 min.

Expert: Barry Norman

The knowledge to predict the difference between a retracement and a reversal is a great tool to add to your trading arsenal. Many experienced traders are still unable to detect the difference between assets retracement and a potential reversal. Reversals are temporary changes in a trend that occurs over a short period of time. Whereas retracements are momentary changes that often occur during a longer trend. Unlike reversals, retracements show a continuation of an opposing trend within the targeted price action. Being able to successfully determine whether an asset is displaying a reversal or retracement is vital if you want a high success rate trading portfolio.

Let’s say you’ve entered a market and are holding a position. But now the market is moving against you. Is this current move a retracement or a reversal? If it’s a retracement, it is a temporary pullback, where prices will bounce off support and resume the direction of the original trend. Deciding when to close your trade or keep it going is very important if you want to earn more pips but not turn a winning trade into a losing position.
