Stop Hunting in Trading Exists! But it is Just Not What You Expect it to Be. David Paul, Financial Trader comments. If you found value in watching this video, PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can do more! Do you think there is something like ‘stop hunting’ where market makers or brokers trigger stop levels where most traders have setup their stops? Institutional trades are taught either to buy at 'good levels' or not to buy at all. Most institutions will put their orders at very good levels... However, it is very much simpler to execute at retail level than for institutions that need a lot of liquidity. The next time you are about to trade on, pick something heavy and hit your head. Then you write down where you are going to buy and where you are going to put your stop loss.

Do you really believe that technical analysis can help traders? In what ways? How can a chart help forecast future prices if they are based on the past? Do you base your trading solely on technical or do you also use fundamental analysis? Can technical analysis by itself be the mainstay of an investment strategy? We know that in practice what happens in reality is that one piece of real news can blow up months of small technical gains. Please comment. Technical analysis works for me but I've selected the elements that work for me and there are limitations. There are a number of concepts that I feel don't work and which I avoid. Traders are taught indicators and moving averages; many of which are lagging the price action. I think there is too much fascination on indicators and too many traders get caught up trying to seek price tops or bottoms. I think price action is often de-emphasised. I do value volume and things like bollinger bands. I also use chart patterns as these capture people's footprints and DNA of a crowd's response to certain impulses.

London Breakout Forex Trading Strategy. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE. How To Trade The London Breakout Forex Trading Strategy. This strategy is to be used on the GBP/USD currency pair only and here we have a 60 minute chart of this forex pair. At 8 o'clock in the morning everything kicks off in London - FTSE opens, and trading in currencies increases. The idea is that we're expecting the money flowing in into the pound or out of the pound into the dollar and we're expecting that to continue for the next 1 to 3 hours. So we're looking for riding on this money flow and trying to ride on this money flow as far as we can - until either the momentum dies out or the Dow session opens. We are waiting for the breakout and then getting involved in it. You are really waiting for the big swinger on this one - yes you will hit small signals but occasionally you will get a monstrous day in your direction many multiples of your risk.

I think for learning people should start with a demo account or use very small stakes to trade on short-term time frames as that helps you develop the trading mindset. After a while you should look to trade over longer time frames. Several traders use ATR as part of their sell strategy. My question is how in practice do you actually do it? All average true range measures is how much a price has varied during a particular time frame session. As such it is measuring the impulsiveness or the volatility more accurately of a market's move. What other indicators have people found to have the best outcome when used with ATR. For example would you only sell if ATR broken AND the share price is below certain moving average or MACD cross etc?

The key is to raise your stop loss to breakeven level as soon as possible. That way it is difficult to get wiped out and one day you will have a very big winner.

And I would use different levels to identify better strategies. Most traders focus their efforts on finding the best trading system but this will not by itself make you money. Please comment.

In the long run this becomes a fundamental discussion; we are currently in a fantasy kind business environment where no real interest is being paid; the liquidity this is creating is not finding its way to small businesses.

There are two reasons for being stop hunted - 1) The first reason is because your stop is too close (too tight). Unfortunately, the tighter your stop, the more frequently you are likely to get stopped out and it feels like your broker is triggering your stops maliciously. 2) You are putting your stop in the same place as everybody else which leads to the triggering of many stop losses Related Videos Great Tips on Where To Place Your Stop Loss! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7tXpiIoH08 Avoid Getting Stop Hunted - Placing Effective Stop Loss 🤔😯 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur3AhuVnd1I Tips to Avoid Getting Your Stop Loss Hit 😤 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBPiuHGgQ6o Do You Feel the Market is Out to Get You? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgEI8u1XCOc Tight Stops Don't Work or Do They!!? 🤔😯 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nju1s3WbJL0 OTHER WAYS TO MANAGE RISK; TRADING RISK MANAGEMENT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwsnJSO8RCs

Two strategies how to use the Awesome Oscillator http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE The Awesome Oscillator. This is a simple oscillator based on two moving averages; the first one is a 34 period and the second one is a 5 period moving average. As such this is a simple moving average crossover system with a unique flavour. The oscillator oscillates above and below a zero line and you're selling or buying as you cross above or below the zero line. As you cross below the zero line you'd be going short and as you cross above the zero line you'd be going long. The point is it is just a signal or filter to indicate whether the trend has potentially turned bullish or bearish. The next strategy is also interesting. As the awesome oscillator is below zero, you sell into peaks for another downturn/pullback (same for the uptrend).

Discovering Bollinger Bands. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/bollinger-bands.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Bollinger Bands are a very useful tool invented by John Bollinger in the early 1980s. They give a frame of reference for where you expect the price to go. They are “adaptive” bands around the price chart, changing dynamically with volatility and thus providing much more information than bands at a set distance from the average price. The centreline is a moving average, and therefore nothing special. You can expect the price candles to be above the moving average in an uptrend and below the moving average in a downtrend, as inevitably the moving average is a lagging indicator, following behind the price movement. The bands are drawn at a constantly changing distance from the moving average, one band above and one below. The distance is conventionally taken at twice the standard deviation as this provides the most effective bands, though you can customize the indicator as you wish. It’s important to know that statistically using twice the standard deviation means that the price is between the upper band and the lower band 95% of the time. What this means in practice is that in an uptrend you can expect to see the price between the centreline and the upper band most of the time. In fact, if you study some charts you will see that the price tends to hug the upper line in an uptrend. Similarly, in a downtrend the price will tend to drag along the lower line. When the price does breakthrough the Bollinger band, it usually returns swiftly and therefore this would not be a place to make a trade. One way of trading on bands is to wait in an uptrend for the price to drop to the centerline, and then go long with the expectation that the price will go back up to the upper band. You can do the same thing in reverse on a downtrend. There are many other ways to use Bollinger bands, but one of the most interesting things to notice is what happens as the width of the bands expands and contracts. As stated, this is plotted using the standard deviation, and therefore it is a measure of the volatility of the stock. Many times you will see the bands pinching together, almost as if they are constraining the movement of the price, although of course it is actually the price’s lack of movement that reduces the size of the bands. Either way, when the bands have pinched right down it is common to see a strong move in the price, either up or down, almost as if it reaches a point where it cannot be constrained anymore. In this situation, it is important to note that the Bollinger bands really give you no indication which way the price will break out. They simply give you a strong indication that a powerful move is about to happen. You can either try and anticipate the direction by using other indicators, or you can wait until the move is underway and trade to ride the rest of it.

How much capital is needed to start trading? Charlie Burton, trader and educator comments. Is it feasible to expect to make a 10% gain per month trading the financial markets? What type of returns do you target? You seem to favour making small and constant gains? These days the way the brokers are working you can trade in pennies per pip - you can literally be risking a few pounds on a trade. Of course you can make a 10% gain but that would imply taking higher risks. If you make a rule like wanting to make 1000 pounds a day, what you are actually doing is imposing a rigid structure into your trading which sounds like the right thing to do but what happens if you underperform? And what happens if you make more? Do you stop trading? Do you like to make small and constant gains or do you target the big returns?

Bollinger Bands and Stochastic Reversal Trading Strategy. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/bollinger-bands.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE This is a nice strategy. It was claimed to be a swing trading strategy but to me it has more similarities to day trading. The idea of the strategy is to utilise Bollinger Bands and Stochastics. Criteria as follows: 1) The price must be touching or above the upper Bollinger Band. 2) Stochastics must be in an overbought condition. 3) You must have a reversal candle at that point. You could tailor this strategy according to what you expect the price to do in particular the stakes (risk) you want to take and stop placements. The general idea of this trade is that you're looking for a reversal; you've got the overbought condition, flush, exhaustion and the candlestick pattern to get in. You could end up with a gem of a trade that gets you in on Day 1 or Day 2 of a big trend reversal.

Charlie Burton, Trader and Educator interviews Peter Apolostolou. I have been trading since 2003 although I've always been fascinated by trading and investing. PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can bring you more! At the time I read a Vince Stanzione manual and that got me started; I started leading loads of books, trying different things and stategies as well as trend trading and technicals. I made money and lost some money in the process. I thought that I had found the secret with trend trading and then got beaten up by the markets. My mistake was that I didn't always use stops sometimes. It is very painful seeing profits disappear and turning into losses. My current trading style is discretionary.

5 Minute Scalping System using 200MA and Stochastics. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! This scalping strategy is based on moving averages and stochastics and can be utilised on several currency pairs. The whole point of the 200 period moving average is to define the trend - when the price is above it we want to be looking for longs only, when the price is under it we want to be looking for shorts only. The second step is that if the price is above the 200 period moving average, we are looking for the stochastics to be oversold. As soon as they start turning up we go long. This is very much a scalping strategy. NEW: Full Scalping Course at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDXG0p3f59c&list=PLnSelbHUB6GRgarut4otIfX7IAB1RLFGy

What is a Hedge Fund? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. Do hedge get to have the best traders? What does a typical hedge fund manager earn? A hedge fund is a collected pool of money that is allowed to invest in instruments not usually accessible to normal individual with a low net-worth. So most retail traders will know about stocks and futures and maybe forex exchange - then you have slightly more complicated instruments like options but you can also go to the interbank realm of swaps and bond options and bond themselves - things that you either need a lot of capital or you need specialised techniques or connections to be able to trade. Pension funds which also manage people's money are normally restricted to what instruments they can trade but hedge funds don't have such limitations.

The best piece of trading advice I wish I'd known before I started forex. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! 1) Forget about the money and start small. Prove that you can trade and make money before you start putting in serious money. If you're starting with a big account you will start experiencing a lot of pressure when trading the markets. 2) Focus on risk! Risk management counts for a lot in trading - even if you have the best system in the world, if your risk management sucks you will end blowing up your account. 3) Filter out the noise! If you want to follow somebody, follow somebody...but get rid of the excess noise. 4) Stick to one trading method or trading strategy. 5) Be in it for the long term. Getting rich quick is not the way to do it.
