USDCHF - Breakout Retest Setup Plays Out to Perfection
Ahh, the Swissie, the gift that keeps on giving. Chocolate, good watches, offshore accounts, and textbook breakout retest setups.

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

I was talking with one of my price action forex students today who in some sense, has a very typical story - they tried everything, from forex robots, signal services, listening to expert trade advice, reading all kinds of books, etc. but no matter what they did, they still were consistently losing. They are definitely dedicated and sincerely want to learn to trade the forex market successfully so it…Continue

After ranging for what seemed an eternity this week on the extremely weak Eur/Usd, Aud/Usd and others, we finally started showing some signs today, beginning in Asia of a breakout pullback of the overall drop about to ensue. In this video I show 100% how we set-up, and executed this live trade in the London session real-time, for a relatively painless 50+ pips depending on entry. We also had an even better reload after this entry I on the eur/usd & aud/usd that once I was done this…Continue
Asia was able to pull most pairings back off their recent support/resistance levels quite substantially, along with escalating the Yens after Japan intervened with their currency. This put London in a tough spot, what do do from here. In this video I explain how we built a trade plan to short the Eur/Usd in an attempt to continue the Asian momentum, along with the overall plan for the next few intraday swings on this pairing. This is by no means the only trade that was available, the yens…Continue
