I love competition and welcome it in almost any scenario, but when I keep seeing demo trading competitions offered by brokers in an effort to attract demo users one has to wonder who are they helping here?
Lets see, generally speaking the winner of a contest is determined by who has the…Continue

The Market, or so they say, has sent you – his single most abhorrent speculator, the most insignificant trader, a data point that was most certainly made up when an interviewer ran out of ink – only to you has the Market sent a message from his deathbed. He has had the messenger be…Continue

An F-16 just few overhead and I cant help but think of Col. John Boyd and his OODA Loop.
Col. John Boyd was the loudest, most obnoxious United States Air Force fighter pilot from the mid 1940’s to 1970’s – hell probably ever. He was commonly known as“40 second Boyd” due to his very public…Continue

Spain, Greece and the Horror with No End...For Now
Although markets were calm today from the US Memorial Holiday, Spain today asked the EU to act in providing support for fiscally frail gov'ts (read 'Spain is begging for help') as its fiscal gaps and banking system (but, but...Bankia is fully solvent you said) are getting pummeled with soaring yields which are punishing the rates on bonds. Again, Spain is 4x larger than Greece so if Spain…
China Slowing Down, Fear & Loathing in Europe
Prior to the London open, the China HSBC Flash Manufacturing came out worse than expectated, alarming investors globally since the motherland slowing down is a big concern as the weakening output affects all. This initially sent the AUD and NZD lower but both recovered shortly after to hold modest gains throughout the day.
The situation did not get any better with German manufacturing also…Continue

Euro Hits Near 2-Yr Low, Grexit Fears Persist
The Euro got hammered in NY trading dropping 120+pips in about 3 hours as the EU summit didn't really calm any fears of an eventual Grexit from the EZ. Of course EZ officials telling members of the currency bloc to prepare contingency plans for an exit are not helping.
Oh yeah, did we forget to mention European banks have the highest loan-to-deposit ratio in the world (3x that of the US banks)?…

I am going to start this article with a question which could signify a major portion of your current level of success or failure in trading.
The question is;
Do you believe willpower (and specifically - your willpower) is a limited resource, and if so, what do you think it limits you to learn, achieve and accomplish?
A follow up question to this is:
If you work on a difficult task,…
In one of my most recent webinars on price action forex trading, I talked about a key method for detecting when a trend is over-extended, which is to look for a climax or exhaustion reversal bar. I had mentioned how from an order flow perspective why these exhaustion and climax bars tend to represent a high probability reversal coming based on the various…Continue
Lately I have been spending a lot of time crunching data on some of the forex price action algorithms my programmer and I created, that the data can at times become overwhelming to digest. In times like these, in needing a break, I often enjoy reading something completely unrelated to forex so I can engage other aspects of my brain. Recently, the subject…Continue
One of the more popular price action forex reversal patterns people trade today is the engulfing bar reversal pattern which is one of many two bar reversal patterns or AB reversal patterns (AB as in it has an A bar and B bar as part of the pattern) available. Although this is a commonly traded pattern, many traders fail to find the best entry or are able to gauge a proper target using any…Continue
