Trading while traveling in China and Hong Kong


Finally i have experienced trading FX while traveling in China and Hong Kong in December. It was a good experience enjoying sightseeing and trading FX. Thats why people say u can trade anywhere in the world as long as there is internet. I used my HTC Touch 3G to trade during travel because i didn't want to bring a laptop. The first few days in Taishan and Guangzhou China, i couldn't trade as there were no wifi in the hotel so i miss the Euro drop from 1.4600 area. Subsequently, i traded while i was in Shenzhen and Hong Kong which gave me some nice scalp trades. Thats what i call
"Trading on the Go, anytime anywhere"

Strength Meter


Hi, i am using FX4caster strength meter.
My entry is when H4 price candle crosses the 55 ema (magenta colored MA in the chart). Then i will refer to the Strength Meter if there is very obivous difference between the strength of the currencies, i will enter. If not, i will stay out. If all the currencies strength all quite the same, i will not enter.

For example, if Euro strength is 3.41 and USD strength is 3.71. I would not short Euro, the difference is too small, no clear winner.
In the chart provided, we can see that USD is very strong 8.86 compared to JPY 2.00, so we can long USD/JPY.

Best entry is when price just broke 55ema, if price is already far away from the H4 55 ema, i stay out because price already run away. For example, the EUR/GBP trade i close with small profits because the price is exhausted and it is showing potential reversal, besides my initial entry is far away from the 55ema which is not so profitable.

Just my opinion. Please comment.

5 min Spike Strategy








5 min Spike Strategy

What are spikes?

1. Spikes or long 5 min candles must be 15 pips or more.
2. Price must spike to SR levels, sometimes right to the pip.
3. Spikes indicates price exhaustion ( A last dash to the finish line aka SR level)

How to trade spikes? ( especially in a ranging market)

1. Wait for price to spike to SR levels.
2. After the spike has formed, wait for it to reverse.
3. Entry is when price reverses and breaks the high or low of the spike.
4. Entry is always in the opposite direction of the current direction of the spike.
Example: Bullish spike to Resistance, we sell at the low of the bullish spike.
5. Entry 1 pip above /below spike.
6. Take profit @ 10pips ( high probability) or Close partial.

Fading 1.3746



1.3746 area is crucial support for Euro. This area has a confluence of 38% Fibo and Monthly Pivot Suport. There is a Swing Low in June 16 and Swing High in March 19-23.

I may FADE this area.

Month of July



Month of July started with a bang and some good volatility. An UP day on 1st of July and a DOWN day on 2nd of July.

Lets see what this month's price action has to offer.

If price breaks 1.3920 we will see more downside as this area is 38% Fibo from June 16 low to July 1st high.

If price breaks back above 1.41oo, we may see more upside.

Thursday, June 25, 2009

26 June 09



1.4040 is a strong resistance with a confluence of fibo points and also 1.4050 No Brainer Level. I expect price to test this level today.

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

23 June 09



Finally there is a Breakout today after ranging for the whole week. Price bounce of the monthly pivot support and broke the upper trendline. If price can stay above 1.4000 today, the uptrend is still intact. Be careful of FOMC meeting tomorrow.

Monday, June 22, 2009



Waiting for a break...

Reversal Candle Patterns in USD/JPY



This is far from your normal clean reversal pattern. You’ve got four indecision candles and the last one actually makes a new low. A lot of newbie traders would look at this and not be sure what to do.

However, it is quite simple. Despite the messiness of these candles all we are seeing here is a period of indecision. The bulls and the bears are fighting it out, sometimes the bulls win sometimes the bears, but all their victories are short lived.

What we do know, for certain, is up until five candles ago the bears were in complete control of the market. However, for the past four candles, the bulls have been fighting back. It makes sense that we would see a reversal here.

Weekly Pivots are important areas where price tend to find support and resistance.

For me important S/R areas are:

1. Daily Open GMT0000
2. Weekly Pivots
3. Round Numbers
4. Daily Pivots
5. H1 and H4 Swing High / Swing Low
6. Previous Day High Low

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

6 May 09



Shorted Euro. Price is trying to break 1.3300. Going into ECB rate cuts on Thursday.
Next level of support will be 1.3211, 1.3100 and 1.2885.

Monday, May 4, 2009

Weekly Pivots



Weekly Pivots are important S/R areas. Price tend to reverse at weekly pivots.

Friday, April 24, 2009

24 April 09



Euro has been moving up steadily ever since it broke the congestion area.

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

23 April 09



Euro has broken the congestion zone, staying above 1.2994 now. I reckon it will test the 38% retracement at 1.3078 and also the previous swing low area at 1.3088. Period.

Euro is Ranging



Euro is ranging between 1.3000 and 1.2886.

Euro Outlook

Post-easter uptrend continues (assuming this PA tonight is a retrace against the trend) then I'm looking for longs building a position towards 3500 and 3600

There is talk of 'huge' ascending triangle on USD index getting ready to blow

Fits in nicely with the 10-day wide DB on EURUSD at 3100

So right now we are retracing back from the first test of 3400

This is wave c of an a-b-c correction: when wave c is complete then wave 3 begins: wave 3 is usually 1.6 X wave 1: which takes price close to 3600: so I am looking for something like 3250 -> 3600: we had a bigger range than that last week so it's not hard to do

What about the move up from 3090 to 3390 (300 pips) that is what I call wave 1

62% ret of wave1 = 3204 ; so my ideal scenario this week is 3200 -> 3600.
