Despite a deep pull-back on oil the larger trend remains down as recovery appears to be only in three waves, which ideally represents a black wave 4 that is part of a larger downtrend. As such, traders should be aware of a bearish reversal in this week, possibly from around 92.50 where we can see a very typical 38.2% retracement level of wave 3. Break of 90.75 swing would be the first evidence for weakness in black wave 5.

Today I am going to give a lesson on how to find some of the best support and resistance levels in the market. If I had to say - I think there are three types which are the best support and resistance levels you could find. But it would take a long time to go into each type, what are the characteristics of each, what they mean from an order flow perspective, and how to trade each type.
So I am going to cover in today's lesson, what are some of the most critical variables to…Continue
I am going to start this article talking about one of the most important things developing traders will need to know - that is to 'Know Thyself'. This recently came up for me as a newer student sent me a few emails which made me realize how important this is for anyone starting on the learning process, but hasn't found the right trading system to trade from every day.
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

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

While domestic bond holders would see selling opportunities in the likely event that the Treasury drops its yields, foreign holders of U.S. debt would only see the downside – a weaker dollar. In a…Continue
