The difference between a lagging indicator and a leading indicator is pretty self-explanatory. A leading indicator identifies a signal before a trend breaks out or price reversal comes into effect. In contrast, a lagging indicator identifies signals after a trend is in motion.
“What is the best timeframe to trade in Forex?” Isn’t that the question that many traders, especially the novices have asked themselves? When MT4, with just nine timeframes, was the only available trading platform for Forex retail traders, this question needed an answer. And with newer trading platforms with more timeframes today, answering this question is even more important.
In the capital markets industry, a lot of emphasis is put on timing, and this is especially true for the online Forex trading niche. Visit the website of any Forex broker or platform provider, and one of the first points they’ll make is how fast your orders are executed on their low latency trading infrastructure.
One of the first things anyone learns when they start out as a Forex trader is understanding and applying support and resistance levels in their trading strategy.
There is no shortage of financial instruments on offer for investors and speculators to trade. Almost anything that can be, has been turned into a security or a derivative and made tradable in one way or another.
The majority of Forex traders are you and I; retail traders. We make up over 90% of all traders. The remaining 10% (or less) are smart money traders, such as banks. Smart money traders make the largest and most consistent profits between these two categories of traders. They are profitable 90% of the time. But retail traders lose money over 90% of the time.
One area where all traders struggle with is determining where to place their stop loss. New traders are repeatedly told to stick to a strict risk-reward ratio and religiously follow their trading plan. Fiddling with a Stop Loss can be a sign that you are on a slippery slope to Margin Call or worst, Stop Out.
