Introduction to Forex Algorithmic Trading

Introduction to Forex Algorithmic Trading

Financial institutions have been rapidly increasing the usage of digital technology since the 1970s. Competitive market enforced having the latest technology in many operations that used to be manual in the past. Looks like one of those would be trading on the markets, where good old ‘gut-feeling’ is becoming less and less useful and leaves a place to clusters of CPUs or GPUs, ‘Big Data’ and so-called ‘Algorithmic Trading’.

What is Algorithmic Trading?

Algorithmic trading means the use of electronic platforms for entering trading orders with an algorithm which executes pre-programmed trading instructions whose variables may include timing, price or quantity of the order. Trades are executed with marginal or without any human intervention, algorithms require investors to first specify their goals in terms of mathematical variables.

The overall trend observed during the past few decades has been towards quantitative ans algorithmic approach in investing and there’s seems to be no reversal from that on the horizon. Algorithmic trading plays a major role in the financial markets and there is good chance it will play even bigger in the future.

Depending on investors needs, customized algorithms range from simple to highly sophisticated, computers implement trades following the exactly prescribed instructions. Algorithmic trading has become possible due to fully electronic infrastructure in stock trading systems. The term black box trading is used to describe very advanced systems operating without or with minimal human intervention.

Pros and Cons of Algorithmic Trading

Algorithmic trading has several advantages compared to trading carried out by a human trader. Computer systems have a much shorter reaction time and reach a higher level of reliability. The decisions made by a computer system rely on the underlying strategy with a specified set of rules, which lead to a reproducibility of these decisions. Consequently, back-testing and improving the strategy by varying the rules possible. Algorithmic trading also ensures objectivity in trading decisions and is not exposed to subjective influences. When trading many different securities at the same time, one computer system may substitute many human traders. Observation and the trading of securities of a large variety become possible for companies without employing hundreds of traders.

Nevertheless, the automated trading requires monitoring, altogether it results in a better performance of the investment strategy as well as in lower trading costs.

It is challenging to automate the whole process from investment decision to execution, there is always a trade-off between system stability and robustness and complexity. The less complex the system the more solid operation, on the other hand, lack of complexity may lead to lower profitability.

Algorithmic trading has been often related to increasing volatility on the markets, according to some algorithms may produce snowball effects and so-called ‘flash crashes’.  Another aspect in a discussion about algorithmic trading is its effect on liquidity. These trading strategies may improve liquidity if they act as market makers, but on the other hand, if they create extra imbalance the effect may just the opposite. There are scientific findings that indicate, algorithmic trading improves liquidity and enhances the informativeness of quotes.  It helps reducing transaction costs and risk, improves entry speed, increases trade control and reduces bid/ask spread.

Automated Trading System

The concept of an automated trading system refers to an idea of computer trading program that automatically submits trades to a given exchange. Depending on a trading frequency the speed of data may have a significant influence whether the trading system is profitable or not. An automated trading system consists of many layers all of which must be taken into consideration. First of all, trading system must have a reliable market data feed. This data is being fed to algorithms to find if there are currently such market conditions, which would have been likely profitable trading opportunities according to back-test (Alpha Model). If the back-test support market conditions then the risk management should be taken into account: does this trade fit to our current portfolio’s risk profile and what kind of effect it has on portfolio’s total market exposure (Risk Model). Assuming the potential trade ticks two above boxes, it can be executed on the market. Before executing an order, a strategy should also tell when the trade should be exited if the market turns against the trade but also when to close the profitable trade (Transaction Cost Model).

The result of a strategy will be the returns over time of those trades and the performance measures. Just to scratch the surface, there are two main kinds of strategies to perform in quantitative trading, mean-reversion and momentum. If the price of an asset is relative low or high respect a reference, for example, the average historical price of a share, and it is expected the come back to that reference, the strategies exploiting this situation are called mean-reversion strategies. For example, it is possible to make a strategy with two stocks highly correlated in time. If the prices are moving in opposite direction (making the difference between them greater) buying one and selling the other with the same amount of money expecting a reverse in that movement. Momentum strategies follow a trend in a certain direction.

Pitfalls to avoid


In the strategy research process, there are numerous ways to fall in pitfalls, leading in well-performed strategies with historical data but useless with real-time prices.

The main issues may be:

  • Taking into consideration stocks splits and dividends
  • Missing data and abnormally differences between periods
  • Survivorship bias, problem testing only companies that are ‘alive’
  • Use data that it has not been generated during the period analyzed
  • Overfitting, use parameters to fit the historical data
  • Overfitting, use parameters to fit the historical data

To begin with, the data sources could contain errors. The dividends are discounted in the stock price, the past data is usually adjusted to not have big drops in prices when, actually, the money is in the account of the investor. Also, the prices have to be adjusted when the company decides to divide a share into multiples shares, the same way the prices have to do. The reliability of the data has associated a data cost to pay to the provider and must to discount to the final result of the strategy. An important associated cost and typical pitfall to fall not including it in the strategy result is the transaction cost. This is the price paid to the broker to send the orders to the market. For this reason, the strategies with fewer trades and great returns in each trade are good to avoid this cost. The pitfall called survivorship bias is when that is not including in the strategy research the companies that went into bankruptcy. Another important pitfall is overfitting, strategy performs well only with historical data used for tuning, but underperforms in live conditions. To avoid this bias, the strategy has to be tested with additional data or “out-of-the-sample” data before going life. Last but not least, look-ahead bias, that is using data that were not available in the test period, for example, a financial ratio that is brought at the end of the year.

Strategy performance

Traders use a variety of ratios to measure and compare the performance of different strategies. This process is present in the whole cycle of testing and tuning to ensure the performance will be good at a time when strategy executes real trades.

Most often the media or investment fund reports show the returns to tell how an investment had performed, it says little of the characteristics and risk of the investment.

Things like long periods of negative returns or high returns followed by big drops are not always expected by investors, to take that into consideration few measures have been developed:

Sharpe Ratio – it measures the excess return of the portfolio (above the risk-free rate) in terms of excess portfolio’s volatility. The ratio measures just the alpha component of the total return. Important to note that the Sharpe Ratio does not distinguish between positive and negative returns at the volatility.

Sortino Ratio – it is a modification of the Sharpe Ratio where only the downside volatility penalizes the ratio.

Drawdown measures like ‘max drawdown’ that is the maximum percentage decrease in capital encountered in the period or ‘max drawdown period’ that is maximum period in which strategy was losing money

Risk Management

Understanding the concept of risk is crucial for creating a good risk management strategy. Risk can be defined as the uncertainty of outcomes. In the financial literature, a risk is the likelihood of losses resulting from unexpected events related to movements in the market. Extreme events (like crashes) may have a low probability of occurring but also may cause a big loss. These low probability events are more intractable because they are usually hard to anticipate. Algorithmic trading is exposed to different types of risk which could be generally categorized into two main types: market risk (related to market behavior) and operational risk (eg. infrastructure failure).

Summary

As financial markets become more competitive, financial institutions and private investors have started to turn to automated trading, to gain competitive advantage. With the ability to communicate electronically with exchanges and other electronic trading venues, it is now possible to construct automated trading systems to analyze the changing market data and place orders when certain criteria are met. These systems can be customized to execute almost any trading strategy.  Different people might utilize algorithmic trading systems to achieve different objectives although most of them contain one of the basic layers:

  • The trading signal generation
  • Risk management
  • Systems that automate the trade execution

Forex For Beginners

Forex For Beginners is the prequel to my first two books, A Three Dimensional Approach to Forex Trading, and A Complete Guide to Volume Price Analysis. It is your primer to the world of forex. It has been written to lay the foundations and provide the framework for getting started in the world of forex, in what I believe is the correct way. My other books then build on what you will learn here, to further develop your trading skills and knowledge.

What I try to do in all my books, is to show you how to apply that knowledge to help you become a more confident trader. After all, learning is all well and good, but if we are not taught how to apply that knowledge in a practical way, then it is of little use. It is the application of knowledge that empowers, and this is what I have tried to do here, and in my online training rooms, and all my books.

There are of course many books about forex trading. What is different about this book, is the focus on those aspects of trading which I believe are fundamental. After all, there are only two questions we need to answer when considering a position in the market:-

What is the risk on this trade - high, medium or low?
What is the financial risk on this trade?
The first is the hardest question to answer, and the book will explain in detail the analysis and approach to use, in order to answer this question with confidence. The second question is more straightforward and is answered provided you have an understanding of risk, money management and position sizing in relation to your trading capital. Again, this is covered in detail in the book. As the tag line on the front cover says 'What you need to know to get started, and everything in between' which really sums up what you will learn.
The book explains everything, from the pure mechanics to the trading methodology that I advocate, and which I have used in all my own trading and investing for over 17 years. Forex For Beginners is also dedicated to all those traders who have asked me to write such an introduction, based on my knowledge and my methodology.

How to Build a Solid Trading System

Are you new to forex trading or just started to trade on a live account but with not much success ?
You need a solid forex trading system based on sound principles of the forex market, that has clear trading and money management rules.

Do you have a forex trading system and you have been trading with it for a period of time but still you don't have the success you hoped for ?
This can only mean that your trading system does not take into account the basic trading rules and principles that any powerful forex trading system incorporates.

This book teaches you how to construct your own powerful forex trading system, what are the most important forex trading tools that you must include in it, what not to include in your forex trading system, how to apply solid money management rules and equaly important, how to avoid making trading mistakes that will cost you when you start to trade with your newly developed forex system.
The Simple Strategy - A Powerful Day Trading Strategy For Trading Futures, Stocks, ETFs and Forex

A profitable trading strategy is the most important tool for a trader.

This book explains a powerful trend-following day trading strategy for trading futures, stocks, ETFs and Forex.

=========================================
"The Simple Strategy" Is Easy To Understand And To Trade
=========================================

The Simple Strategy is very popular amongst traders for the following reasons:
Clear Entry Rules

When trading "The Simple Strategy", there's no second-guessing. As you will see, the entry rules are based on indicators - and these rules are black and white. Either the MACD is above the zero line or it isn't. And either the RSI is above 70 or it isn't. The entries are easy to identify and execute. That's why this strategy is called "The Simple Strategy"

Clear Exit Rules

When trading "The Simple Strategy" you'll know when to exit even before you enter the trade. So, you know exactly how much to risk on any given trade which is essential for precise position sizing and money management. Plus, you can put the trade on auto-pilot once your entry order is filled. This keeps trade management to a minimum. It's easy and simple.

Taking advantage of small intraday trends

These days trends are short-lived. The times when you could enter the market in the morning and exit the market in the afternoon are over. These days the markets can turn on a dime. Low trading commissions and computerized trading have destroyed the nice and long intraday trends. However, with "The Simple Strategy" you can take advantage of the small intraday trends that we are seeing in today's markets.

You don't need a sophisticated trading software

If you want to trade "The Simple Strategy", you only need a charting software with "basic" charting capabilities: Your charting software needs to be able to plot RANGE BARS, BOLLINGER BANDS, MACD and RSI. More than 90% of the charting software packages that are available today have these capabilities. There's no need to buy any proprietary indicators or expensive charting software!

In short: "The Simple Strategy" can greatly simplify your trading.

=====================================
*** WARNING: This Book Is NOT For Everybody! ***
=====================================

Do NOT buy this book if...
... You Are Looking For The "Holy Grail"

Because it doesn't exist! When trading "The Simple Strategy", there will be losses! Losses are part of our business as traders. The good news: If you follow the rules of "The Simple Strategy", then you will make more money on your profitable trades than you lose on your losing trades. In fact, the risk/reward ratio of this strategy is 1 : 1.5, so you can expect to make $150 for every $100 you risk.

... You Want To Automate Your Trading Strategies

"The Simple Strategy" will give you clear entry signals, but it's up to YOU to decide if you want to take the signal. As an example, I personally do NOT trade right into a major report. And I only trade the first two hours after the markets open, since most trends occur during this time. Makes sense?

... You Are Absolutely New To Trading

You should have a basic understand of charts and how to use them. And you need to know how to display indicators on your charting software. This book is NOT an introduction into trading. In this book you will learn how to configure your charts, when to enter a trade, where to place your stop loss and when to take profits.

This book will use the same principles as his MT4 High Probability Forex Trading Method, but it is a stand-alone book and concentrates more on trading with Divergence.

Technical Analysis for Beginners: Stop Blindly Following Stock Picks of Wall Street's Gurus and Learn Technical Analysis

It’s strange to observe that in an age where information is so abundant and easy to access, a very small number of investors understand the functioning of the stock charts. Many more believe that the up-and-down level of a share is strongly connected to a company’s profitability. Either because of doubt or a lack of understanding, most traders and investors trust their friends, colleagues or pseudo-specialist gurus to help them make good trading and investment choices. This book has been written to help the new traders who trust blindly in those close to them, their colleagues or financial gurus, and want to understand chart patterns before investing in stocks.
Take control of your investments
Technical Analysis for Beginners, or Stop Blindly Following Stock Picks of Wall Street’s Gurus and Learn Technical Analysis is easy to understand, and it addresses the people who want to use tools that allow detection of buy-and-sell signals. This book includes more than 100 examples, figures and tables that will help your understand investments visually. Several stock market charts show entry points, exit points and even false signals.
Dummies need to understand technical analysis
The best way to foresee the future is to analyze the past. This book is a guide to avoiding many traps in the financial markets. I will show you how to use the stock market charts and how to enrich them with indicators, which will allow you to enter and exit the market at the right time.
Know how to spot the market’s trend
Learn how to detect the stages of a share to make a better anticipation of the sale periods. Numerous examples show you how to highlight the trend, the support, the resistance and the trend channel, as well as the positive and negative divergences and the candlestick patterns.
Identify breakout and breakdown
The term "breakout" is used by traders in action. It’s associated with multiple upward figures and marks the debut of a new rising trend. Learn to detect and use breakout to make good selections of stocks.
Identify bullish and bearish patterns
Certain configurations allow anticipating a configuration or a trend reversal. We have included numerous graphs and figures that facilitate learning. The examples are improved with comments and symbols that facilitate comprehension.
Know how to use the different types of indicators
There are a great number of technical indicators. New ones are created each year. However, you should limit their use and make a choice among the four families of indicators that follow:
Trend indicators
Momentum indicators
Volatility indicators
Volume indicators
Avoid traps, errors and false signals
Technical analysis cannot guarantee 100 percent success. The traps can be detected on a graph, but they can also come from the ones that make purchase recommendations to you, such as people that provide pump and dump scenarios or stock promoters from the web. Graphic analysis of the shares is essential before any investment.
Understand the market’s emotional cycle
It’s difficult to leave your emotions aside when your portfolio has lost 10 percent in just one day. Don’t put yourself in vulnerable situations. Keep your emotions balanced by investing at the appropriate moment.
Configure your charts
You only need a couple of minutes to do the technical analysis of a stock. You can rapidly make judgments on the quality of the targeted shares or ETF. Invest in your knowledge, invariably be skeptical about the recommendations of specialists, and analyze their choices before investing!
The Art and Science of Technical Analysis: Market Structure, Price Action and Trading Strategies

A breakthrough trading book that provides powerful insights on profitable technical patterns and strategies
The Art and Science of Technical Analysis is a groundbreaking work that bridges the gaps between the academic view of markets, technical analysis, and profitable trading. The book explores why randomness prevails in markets most, but not all, of the time and how technical analysis can be used to capture statistically validated patterns in certain types of market conditions. The belief of the book is that buying and selling pressure causes patterns in prices, but that these technical patterns are only effective in the presence of true buying/selling imbalance.

The Art and Science of Technical Analysis is supported by extensive statistical analysis of the markets, which will debunk some tools and patterns such as Fibonacci analysis, and endorse other tools and trade setups. In addition, this reliable resource discusses trader psychology and trader learning curves based on the author's extensive experience as a trader and trainer of traders.

Offers serious traders a way to think about market problems, understand their own performance, and help find a more productive path forward
Includes extensive research to validate specific money-making patterns and strategies
Written by an experienced market practitioner who has trained and worked with many top traders
Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The Art and Science of Technical Analysis will give you a realistic sense of how markets behave, when and how technical analysis works, and what it really takes to trade successfully.
Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians (3rd Edition)

Master technical analysis, step-by-step! Already the field's most comprehensive, reliable, and objective introduction, this guidebook has been thoroughly updated to reflect the field's latest advances.

Selected by the Market Technicians Association as the official companion to its prestigious Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program, Technical Analysis, Third Edition systematically explains the theory of technical analysis, presenting academic evidence both for and against it. Using hundreds of fully updated illustrations and examples, the authors explain the analysis of both markets and individual issues, and present complete investment systems and portfolio management plans. They present authoritative, up-to-date coverage of tested sentiment, momentum indicators, seasonal effects, flow of funds, testing systems, risk mitigation strategies, and many other topics.

Offering 30% new coverage, Technical Analysis, Third Edition thoroughly addresses recent advances in pattern recognition, market analysis, systems management, and confidence testing; Kagi, Renko, Kase, Ichimoku, Clouds, and DeMark indicators; innovations in exit stops, portfolio selection, and testing; implications of behavioral bias, and the recent performance of old formulas and methods. For traders, researchers, and serious investors alike, this is the definitive guide to profiting from technical analysis.
Charting and Technical Analysis

To invest successfully or trade in Stocks, Options, Forex, or even Mutual Funds, it is imperative to know AND understand price and market movements that can only be learned from Technical Analysis. You should NEVER attempt Trading or Investing without it! My 25 years experience has taught me that 'every book on the market' regarding Charting and Technical Analysis is seemingly worthless. All seem to find yet another creative way to tell you to “Buy Low and Sell High.” And they offer NO in-depth understanding or analysis about WHO is buying and WHO is selling, and when. Point is, anyone, experienced or not, can show you a picture of a Chart and tell you to buy at the bottom and sell at the top. That is simple 'hindsight,' and is always 20/20. This book is different! It is IN-DEPTH – EXPLAINED and you WILL learn price movements and technical analysis from this information! You will understand and recognize tops and bottoms in the market and in particular stocks, AS they are forming. This is highly valuable information, and you should NEVER attempt to trade or invest without this knowledge. Mutual Funds? Most people think they do not need this information because the have a Mutual Fund. That could not be farther from the truth. Investing your hard-earned money should be done with your own knowledge of market direction, when to buy, and when to move your money to safety. Without this knowledge you are at the mercy of a salesperson hungry to earn a commission. Thus, invariably entering the market at the wrong time and in the wrong investment. No one else has your best interest in mind. So learn to protect your money or keep it in the bank. It's that simple. The next move is yours.

How to Day Trade for a Living: A Beginner's Guide to Trading Tools and Tactics, Money Management, Discipline and Trading Psychology

Very few careers can offer you the freedom, flexibility and income that day trading does. As a day trader, you can live and work anywhere in the world. You can decide when to work and when not to work. You only answer to yourself. That is the life of the successful day trader. Many people aspire to it, but very few succeed.

In the book, I describe the fundamentals of day trading, explain how day trading is different from other styles of trading and investment, and elaborate on important trading strategies that many traders use every day. I've kept the book short so you can actually finish reading it and not get bored by the middle.

For beginner traders, this book gives you an understanding of where to start, how to start, what to expect from day trading, and how to develop your strategy. Simply reading this book, however, will not make you a profitable trader. Profit in trading does not come with reading a book or two or browsing online. It comes with practice, the right tools and software and appropriate ongoing education.

Intermediate traders may benefit from the book's extensive overview of some of the classic strategies that the majority of retail traders regularly use with proven success. If you think you are beyond the stage of a novice trader, then you may want to jump ahead and start reading from Chapter 7 for an overview of the most important day trading strategies:

ABCD Pattern Trading
Bull Flag Momentum Trading
Top Reversal Trading
Bottom Reversal Trading
Moving Average Trend Trading
VWAP Trading
Support and Resistance Trading
For each strategy, I explain:

How to find the Stock in Play for trade
What indicators I am using on my charts
When I enter the trade
When I exit the trade (profit taking)
What is my stop loss
I also encourage you to my community of day traders at Vancouver-Traders.com. You can monitor my screen in real time, watch me trade the strategies explained in his book, and ask questions of me and other traders in our private chat room.

I invite you to join me in the world of day trading. I'm a real person who you can connect with. I love what I do. You can follow my blog post under Author Updates on my Author page on Amazon. You'll see I lose some days. You can read the reviews of my book. I know you will learn much about day trading and the stock market from studying my book. You can join at no cost and with no obligation my community of day traders at Vancouver-Traders.com. You can ask us questions. Practical, hands-on knowledge. That's How to Day Trade for a Living.
Online Forex Trading: Exclusive Interviews with Five Forex Experts

A few years ago I began hearing about people making a bundle in online Forex trading. When I started to research Forex, I found tons of experts selling ebooks, teaching courses, providing tips via subscriptions.

Is the talk all hype, designed to sell books and trading software to naïve investors? What kind of time, brains, or luck are necessary to profit from Forex trading?

I thought it was best to not just get one expert's opinion, but several. If one person says something, I might believe them. But if three out of four people voice similar opinions, that means a lot more.

So I conducted email interviews with five Forex experts. This Kindle book contains those exclusive interviews. Read them and discover:

Are your expectations about Forex trading realistic

Best ways to determine if a Forex expert is trustworthy

How soon is realistic to expect to be profitable in Forex trading

How each expert got to started in Forex

Whether you could make a living trading Forex online

Kathy Lien, of DailyFX.com, co-author of Millionaire Traders: How Everyday People are Beating Wall Street at Its Own Game, and author of Day Trading the Currency Market

Jeffrey Wilde, author of Forex Profits, Step-by-Step Strategies to Unlock The Hidden Profits in Forex

Adam Burgoyne, creator of The 5 EMAs Forex System

Dirk du Toit author of Bird Watching in Lion Country, Forex Trading Explained

Ed Ponsi, author of The Ed Ponsi Forex Playbook: Strategies and Trade Set-Ups, Forex Patterns & Probabilities: Trading Strategies for Trending & Range-Bound Markets and president of FXEducator.com

Note: This is NOT an investment advice book to help you immediately learn to place forex trades online, instead it will allow you to avoid scams and plan an investment strategy that meets your needs and goals.

Forex Scalping Trading Strategies: How To Earn A Living Scalping Profits

Are you dissatisfied with amount of money you earn while dealing in forex? Forex traders looking to make quick bucks employ a method called forex scalping. They buy a certain currency and allow that position to stay only for a few seconds. In other words, they sell it almost immediately when the price goes up marginally. This is why forex scalping is also called quick trading. A forex trader is able to make small profits with each scalping trade, which can add up to a considerable amount. Learning how to trade profitably requires you to learn and master a few forex trading systems. The key to trading is becoming a master of a few trading strategies. Forex trading systems are important as they will provide you with structure, a set of rules and a plan to follow. This book will teach you some of the different types of forex scalping trading strategies and help you how to identify what makes the best forex trading system.
The Forex ''Set & Forget'' Profit System: It is VERY DIFFICULT TO LOSE with this extremely reliable trading system

My next Free Forex Trading Room is on Tuesday 1st August 2017. In it I will show you the best place to put your stop loss and take profit target.Everyone that registers gets the video recording.See below for website details where you can register.


I have two quick questions for you. The first question may not appear to have anything to do with Forex trading, but I will explain why it does.



If you were part of a jury in a court of Law would you find someone guilty without any evidence?

Did you know that 90% of retail traders worldwide lose all their trading account money?


The reason the first question is very relevant to Forex trading is that most of us (myself included in the past) have a tendency to believe what we read in books and on websites in the Forex industry. The books, software programs and Forex indicators often promise the earth, but have absolutely no proof that what they promote actually works. However, we can all get seduced by the messages that we read and many of us end up spending some (in my case a lot) of money on numerous books, indicators and software programs.


Who shows real EVIDENCE?


In doing so we assume things are factual without any EVIDENCE. For that reason, we should not have any complaints when we find that the things we buy do not help us to become consistently profitable traders. If we do not ensure that we have EVIDENCE before we make a decision to spend money, then it is OUR own fault if the products or services that we buy do not deliver what we were hoping for.


Is it therefore any wonder that 90% of all retail traders lose money?


We are all being sold stuff that sounds and looks great, but doesn't actually deliver results in the real world of Forex trading. Sadly the Forex industry is awash with people and companies that are all after our money, and they will say virtually anything to get it.How often have you seen a historical Forex chart showing a so called ‘’successful trade’’ using some or other indicator, software program or trading strategy? My guess is that you have seen plenty. Is that EVIDENCE that a system actually works long term?


Your search for a Forex trading system with REAL EVIDENCE is over.


In my book, the Set & Forget profit system I explain how I use a simple mathematical approach to trading Forex that has all the EVIDENCE you could ever ask for.


For the last FIVE YEARS I have been demonstrating the Set & Forget system LIVE in front of my trading room subscribers.


So I DO have REAL TIME EVIDENCE that my system works. I do not make claims that cannot be backed up with real PROOF of their efficacy. You can have total faith that what I say is true because I demonstrate my system every week LIVE in my trading rooms. I now have a provable track record of over 500 trades, all captured on a live video recording. My results are there for all to literally see with their own eyes.

Forex: How To Quickly Lose a Lot: Real stories from TradeFloor. The ultimate guide to markets. Read this before you invest

Nowadays, you see so many advertisements for forex and equity trading platforms as never before. A new global multi-billion dollar market is rising up. And it is aimed at you. It looks easy to invest and make a profit. Likewise, living the life of freelancer who does not need to work, because your money works instead of you. You just sit in front of a notebook, a tablet or even a mobile device, then click and earn. Never was it so easy to buy and sell different currencies, stocks or commodities. You do not even need a lot of money or money at all. Leverage is king these days. And leverage is also the start of your fall. But do not fool yourself. I have encountered a lot of young people who believe they can earn just by investing or trading. They do not see forex markets or stock exchanges as places where only hard work is rewarded. That is not surprising. You watch the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” and see how fantastic, funny and easy that life is. Before that movie, there was the TV series “Capital City”, full of smart guys and women with now obsolete computers and phones, who were able to fend off stress and earn a lot of money. My dream was to be like them. And that is the dream for many others. Once you become a trader in a bank, you easily move to another dream. Not to be an employee, but to be an employer. To have your own trading outlet. To earn for yourself and not for a bank. And that is the crossroads that everyone has to encounter in order to choose which way to go. One is more exciting, one is safer. But that is not so important. All stories here are based on hard facts, on things I have seen with my own eyes.
