Learn from the top forex trading experts in the world. The key to trading currencies is figuring out what central banks will do before they actually make their moves. Even if your dream is perhaps more modest, and you simply want to have a second income trading the forex markets, then again, this book is for you. It has been written with one clear objective in mind. To explain how and why currencies move in the way that they do, using the combined power of relational, technical and fundamental analysis.
Combine this with a three dimensional approach to trading itself, using multiple time frames and multiple chart analysis, and the world of foreign exchange will become crystal clear.
Many aspiring traders, simply do not realize that the forex market sits at the heart of the financial world, which, when you think about it logically, is really common sense. After all, this is the biggest money market in the world, and if the financial markets are about one thing, they are about money.
Making it, protecting it, or increasing the return. It's no surprise therefore, that the forex market connects all the others. It is the central axis of the financial world, around which all the others spin. In the book, you will discover how changes in market sentiment in the primary markets of commodities, stocks, bonds and equities, are then reflected in the currency markets.
This is something which often surprises novice traders. After all, why look at a stock index, or the price of gold, or a bond market? The answer is very simple.
It is in these markets where you will find all the clues and signals, which then reveal money flow. After all, the financial markets are all about risk.
In other words, higher returns for higher risk, or lower returns for lower risk. It really is that simple. And yet, how many forex traders ever consider associated markets.
The answer is very few. You will be one of those enlightened traders who truly understands money flow and risk, and your confidence as a trader will grow exponentially as a result. And in case you were wondering, this is NOT another book explaining forex trading strategies. In fact there are none at all, surprising given the book's length.
If this is what you are looking for, please DO NOT buy this book. It has been written for two specific audiences. The first is the novice forex trader, for whom this is a new market.
The second is the forex trader who has attempted to trade in foreign exchange, but failed, and has been left confused by the apparent random and chaotic behavior of this volatile market.
Reading this book will provide you with a deep understanding of how and why the markets move in the way they do. Whilst the forex market is a complex mix, it is not complicated, once you understand the people, their motives and the currencies themselves. Each chapter builds on the last in a logical sequence, and every topic is explained in a simple and clear way.
Even those markets such as bonds, which few traders ever understand, are explained very simply. Every topic is illustrated with clearly annotated charts, to help and guide you as you learn. Equally important is the concept of change. Indeed you may have other books on your bookshelf written many years ago and explaining how the forex market works.
Well, as you will discover, the rule book has been torn up. No longer is this a simple market of trending currency pairs. If this is news to you, then yet another reason to buy the book. Long gone are the days when currency pairs meandered their way higher and lower in long term trends, driven by interest rate differentials.
To take advantage, you need to understand the forces which now drive the markets. A Three Dimensional Approach To Forex Trading will empower you with knowledge.
Knowledge and confidence go hand in hand. Confidence breeds success, and success breeds money, which will then flow from reading the book - Anna. Author : John J. In this guide to intermarket analysis, the author uses years of experience in technical analysis plus extensive charts to clearly demonstrate the interrelationshps that exist among the various market sectors and their importance.
You'll learn how to use activity in surrounding markets in the same way that most people employ traditional technical indicators for directional clues. The exchange's clearing organization is actually the counter-party to every trade. Chapter 3. The underlying cause of price movement in any market is fundamentals those factors that affect the basic value of that market.
For many markets, the focus is on supply and demand as free-market forces determine what is "expensive" or "cheap," depending on how much is available and how badly someone wants to buy or sell it.
Forex markets go far beyond basic supply and demand figures. Everything that affects the political and economic situation of the two nations involved in a Forex pair has some bearing on the value of the two currencies against each other. Forex traders have plenty of fundamentals to consider as traders are bombarded by news broadcasts, government reports, newsletters, brokerage firm research, television analysts, and many other sources. In fact, the amount of information can become overwhelming.
The challenge for the Forex trader is not in finding enough information but in determining what is most significant from the enormous amount of information available and interpreting what the effects on the markets are likely to be. When you don't know something is going to happen, it's naturally pretty hard to prepare.
How could a Forex trader have prepared for the terrorist attacks of September 11, ? Or for a massive tsunami or hurricane or other natural disaster? Such shocks are a part of trading in the real world but, fortunately, are still rather infrequent. Even if you could anticipate such an event, you probably would not be able to predict how and to what extent the markets might react.
The mass psychology of the marketplace sometimes does funny things that you might not expect. So it's hard to trade unknown, untimed shocks.
Sometimes traders know an event or announcement is coming. Elections, meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee or European Central Bank, releases of government reports, and other such events are scheduled, and the timing is known in advance to traders.
That doesn't mean the market won't react in an unforeseen manner that could surprise you in fact, these events or announcements often do produce market reactions that are not widely expected. But those are situations for which a trader can make some preparation with a sound trading strategy that can help to minimize the risk of being caught off guard. A few general points should be made about these fundamental factors. First, when the government releases an economic report, most of the numbers are estimates based on other estimates.
Yes, the estimates are tabulated by experienced officials who have access to extensive data, but they generally are not precise counts. Nevertheless, these are numbers that all traders have, and the market has to live with them. Second, when traders react to the numbers or results, they may actually be responding to what the market expected rather than the numbers themselves.
A report that might seem bullish may instead send prices sharply lower. You have probably heard the market axiom, Buy the rumor, sell the fact. In some cases, bullish numbers may not be bullish enough to drive the market higher the way you think they should. Or bad news may not be as bad as expected, and prices actually go up instead.
In addition to being aware of the date and time of a report or announcement, you should also have an idea what the market expects so you can reduce your chances of being surprised and hurt by subsequent price action. Third, an outcome or number that may be bullish at one point may not be bullish the next time.
Perhaps traders have become conditioned to the contents of a report and don't react as you might expect. Old news is old news; markets usually require something new to spark price moves. Fourth, your analysis may be correct but too far ahead of what the market is thinking, so you may be positioned way before the market is ready to move.
The fundamental numbers may be just what you anticipated, but the timing of a price move is off because it takes time for traders to digest what they've seen. As you consider all the possible unknown and known events and reports collectively known as the fundamentals, you may have been overwhelmed by all the news you would have to follow and numbers you would have to digest and understand to trade Forex on the basis of fundamentals.
That's why most traders tend to prefer technical analysis, a study of price action that can be applied to any market. Technical analysis combines the influence of all the fundamentals affecting a market into one element, the current price.
Rather than try to keep up with all the fundamentals, traders can analyze price movements on a chart, knowing that the price synthesizes every factor known to the market at the present time at least, in the perception of traders. Price is the visible reflection of all underlying market forces, much like limbs and branches are the visible parts of a tree and fundamentals are the roots that feed and nourish their growth.
When it comes to technical analysis, what Forex traders really need in the way of information for their decision-making boils down to answering four questions:.
Enter charts. Many traders then turn to charts, starting with basic chart analysis such as trendlines and chart patterns. Much of the basic charting education material today is the same as what was available more than thirty years ago when I first began trading, except for the updated charts, graphs and revised hypothetical track records. We dont have space in this brief e-book to discuss chart analysis, but I recommend that you read a book or attend a seminar on technical analysis to learn the details.
Traders need to look back at past price action to put current price action in perspective. They also need to look forward to anticipate what will happen to prices if their analysis is to pay off in the real trading world.
To be able to look ahead with confidence, however, traders need to look in one other direction, and that is sideways to what is happening in related markets, which has a major influence on price action in a target market.
Intuitively, traders know that markets are interrelated and that a development that affects one market is likely to have repercussions in other markets. No market is isolated in today's global marketplace. Many individual traders still rely upon the same types of mass-marketed, single-market analysis tools and information sources that have been around since the s when I first started in this industry.
And a large percentage of traders continue to end up losing their trading capital. If youre still doing what the masses are doing, isnt it likely that youll end up losing your hard-earned money, too? In the Forex markets especially, you cannot ignore the broader intermarket context affecting the market that you are trading. You still need to analyze the behavior of each individual market to see the double tops or broken trendlines or indicator crossovers that so many other traders are following because that's part of the mass psychology that drives price action.
However, it is increasingly important that you factor into your analysis the external intermarket forces that influence each market being traded. Intermarket analysis is certainly not a new development for traders, having roots in both the equities and commodities markets.
You are probably familiar with equities traders who compare returns between small-caps and big-caps, one market sector versus another, a sector against a broad market index, one stock against another, international stocks versus domestic stocks. Portfolio managers talk about diversification as they try to achieve the best performance. Whether they are speculating for profits or arbitraging to take advantage of temporary price discrepancies, intermarket analysis in this sense has been part of equities trading for a long time.
Traders in the commodities markets have also been into intermarket analysis for a long time, trading spreads that have a reliable track record. Farmers have been involved in intermarket analysis for years although they may not have thought of what they do in those terms. When they calculate what to plant in fields where they have several crop choices between corn and soybeans, for example they typically consider current or anticipated prices of each crop, the size of the yield they can expect from each crop and the cost of production in making their decision.
They do not look at one market in isolation but know that what they decide for one crop will likely have a bearing on the price of the other, keeping the price ratio between the two crops somewhat in line on an historical basis.
So, a quantitative approach to implement intermarket analysis, which has been the basis of my research since the mids, is neither a radical departure from traditional single market technical analysis nor an attempt to undermine it or replace it. Intermarket analysis, in my opinion, is just the next logical developmental stage in the evolution of technical analysis, given the global context of todays interdependent economies and financial markets.
Bottom line: If you want to trade Forex markets today, you have to use a trading tool or adopt an approach or trading strategy that incorporates intermarket analysis in one way or another. An important aspect of my ongoing research involves analyzing which markets have the most influence on each other and determining the degree of influence these markets have on one another.
Many market inter-relationships are obvious, but others may seem more distant and unrelated, such as the importance of stock indices, U.
Research has verified that these related markets do have an important influence on a target Forex market and can provide early insights into the Forex market's future price direction. The amount of influence that one market will have on another market will naturally shift over time so these relationships are not static but should be the subject of ongoing study. Forex traders should also be aware that the impact from related markets may not be instantaneous. It may take some time for a policy decision or other development to have an impact on the ever-changing marketplace, or an influencing condition may have a bearing on market direction for only a short time, meaning traders may have only a brief window in which to capitalize on a trading opportunity.
Correlation studies do have limitations because they compare prices of only two markets against each other and do not take into account the influence exerted by other markets on the target market. In the financial markets and especially the Forex markets, a number of related markets need to be included in the analysis rather than assuming that there is a one-to-one cause-effect relationship between just two markets.
Nor do the correlation studies take into account the leads and lags that may exist in economic activity or other factors affecting a Forex market.
Their calculations are based only on the values at the moment and may not consider the longer-term consequences of central bank intervention or a policy change that takes some time to play itself out in the markets. The Forex market is a dynamic marketplace, constantly shifting and evolving. It is not one currency versus the world but all currencies affecting all other currencies to a greater or lesser degree.
Forex market inter-relationships cannot be ferreted out with single-market analysis tools. If you are serious about Forex trading, you need to make the commitment to get the right tools from the get go, or you are likely to struggle to keep your account intact. Since we are talking currencies here, we might interject another familiar saying: "Penny wise and pound foolish" when it comes to investing in analytical tools.
When you consider all of the many intermarket relationships in the Forex markets discussed in the previous chapter and all of them shifting and changing at the same time you might wonder how you could possibly pick out patterns and relationships from such a mass of data. Unlike the subjective approach of chart analysis, neural networks provide an objective way to identify and analyze the complex relationships that exist in Forex and related markets.
They can reveal hidden patterns and correlations in these markets that the eye could never spot on a chart or through the use of traditional single-market indicators that tend to lag the markets. A neural network is not a human brain, but it takes on some brain-like functions as it studies data, "learns" relationships within and between markets, recognizes patterns in past data and uses this information to make forecasts about the target market.
The neural net is essentially a modeling tool that accepts a variety of data and processes information in a manner similar to how the brain functions.
A critical first step in neural network analysis is data input. The forecasts you get out of a neural network will be only as good as the data you put into it. Collecting, cleaning, selecting and preparing the data for analysis are all important. Neural networks are not limited to single-market data inputs nor are they limited solely to technical data inputs. The data can go far beyond just price or technical indicators but can include such items as volume and open interest for the target market as well as intermarket data from related markets and even fundamental data.
Once all of the raw input data has been selected, it is preprocessed or massaged using various algebraic and statistical methods of transformation which help to facilitate "learning" by the neural network. That means it is converted into a form that the learning algorithm in the next layer can best exploit to get the most accurate forecasts in the shortest amount of time. The hidden layer is the learning algorithm used for internal processing to store the "intelligence" gained during the learning process.
There are a number of types of learning algorithms. The network recodes the input data into a form that captures hidden patterns and relationships in the data, allowing the network to come to general conclusions from previously learned facts and apply them to new inputs. As this learning continues, the network creates an internal mapping of the input data, discerning the underlying causal relationships that exist within the data.
This is what allows the network to make highly accurate market forecasts. Training a neural network is somewhat like human learning: repetition, repetition, repetition. The neural network learns from repeated exposures to the input data, and learned information is stored by the network in the form of a weight matrix. Changes in the weights occur as the network "learns. Then the neural networks generalize through the learning process to related but previously unseen behaviors or patterns.
The output layer is where the networks forecasts are made. During training, the network makes its forecasts, errors are computed and "connection weights" between neurons are adjusted prior to the next training iteration. Connection weights are altered by an algorithm the "learning law" including the back-propagation method to minimize output errors.
Lots of adjustments may be necessary at any point along the way to get the desired results. Two types of real number outputs in financial analysis include price forecasts, such as the next days high and low, and forecasts of forward-shifted technical indicators.
The programmer has to decide not only what output to forecast but also how far into the future to make the forecast. Then comes extensive testing to verify the networks ability to forecast accurately. Testing is performed by creating an independent test file of data not used during the training process. This is analogous to "walk-forward" or "out-of-sample" testing of rule-based trading strategies. The programmer can compare performance results from various networks and decide which network to use in the final application.
Just like you dont have to become an automotive engineer to drive your car, you shouldnt have to become a rocket scientist to apply the forecasting power of neural networks in trading the Forex markets. When I began trading in the early s, there were no stock indexes futures, no Eurodollar futures, no options on futures of any kind. Futures on currencies, gold, interest rates, and energy and options on stocks were all still in their infancy. There was no electronic trading and no personal computer to analyze those markets that I was actively trading.
The trading world has evolved considerably since then, offering many new markets to trade, especially in the financial arena; lots of different trading instruments; lots of sophisticated trading software, and a global marketplace that features electronic trading around the clock. It is difficult to imagine that the next twenty-five years could offer as many trading innovations as the last twenty-five years have.
Whatever the future holds, one of the most promising and lucrative trading areas is likely to be the Forex market, which is so responsive to global economic shifts and geopolitical tensions. Years ago the Forex market was limited to banks and financial institutions; individual traders were not part of the picture. Then came the trading prowess of George Soros and other currency speculators who were credited with bringing down the British pound in , the Asian financial crisis in , the launch of the euro in , and other events that brought increased attention to the Forex markets, both for speculation and as a means for knowledgeable traders to protect or hedge themselves against adverse changes in currency values.
The introduction of the Internet in the mids gave Forex trading a big boost as it made it possible for individual traders to get information and to trade on a level playing field with any trader of any size any place in the world at almost any time of the day or night. As a result, numerous cash Forex firms popped up in the late s and early s to accommodate this exploding interest in Forex trading, making Forex trading available to almost any pocketbook.
Electronic Forex futures trading volume has skyrocketed, and the growth in trading Forex options promises to be just as dramatic in the next few years as exchanges facilitate that type of trading. The global war on terrorism and other geopolitical, economic and hurricaneomic shocks and events will undoubtedly keep Forex markets at the center of the global financial marketplace.
The growing influence of China and other Asian markets on the global economy will affect many markets, the Forex market foremost among them. With unprecedented trading opportunities provided by the Forex market, what the individual trader needs in today's world of speedy telecommunications and sophisticated trading techniques is what I call Synergistic Market Analysis. As I have emphasized in this book, I believe that includes: Intermarket analysis.
No country, no currency, no economy, no market is isolated in today's global economy. When you look at one market, you have to look at a number of related markets to get the full story about the market forces driving any one market.
With Forex, that obviously means other currencies, but it also means interest rate and equities markets as well as commodities, particularly international markets such as gold and oil. Single-market analysis just isnt sufficient anymore. Accurate, reliable market forecasting. The trader who wants to have an edge in today's trading needs to look ahead using techniques and tools such as predicted moving averages that do not lag behind the market but have the ability to anticipate what is likely to happen to price and trend direction in the near term.
Because of their trending tendencies, Forex markets are especially good candidates for such market forecasting. Failure to incorporate leading indicators and information on related markets into your trading strategy puts you at a great disadvantage in competing with other more sophisticated traders including professionals who make their full-time livelihood trading Forex markets.
Neural networks are not only well-suited to analyzing these markets from both a single-market and intermarket perspective but can also incorporate fundamental data as inputs. By using the computational modeling capabilities of neural networks in a structured framework that synthesizes these three approaches and integrates seemingly disparate technical, intermarket and fundamental data, quantitative trend and market forecasting, I believe, will continue to be at the cutting edge of financial market analysis in the early decades of the Trading education.
With today's more volatile and erratic markets, education and information will be even more important for successful trading in the future, and traders will need to go to web sites such as www. com for valuable assistance and free information on trading.
Even if you take the Synergistic Market Analysis approach, a myriad of additional factors can affect your chances for trading success. These include mass psychology, judgment, trading experience, risk propensity, fear, greed and amount of risk capital that you really have available. I am, nevertheless, determined to continue my research to push the forecast accuracy envelope as far as it will go since this has been my intellectual passion for the past several decades and continues to excite me.
I hope that this book has helped to make you more aware of the implications that the globalization of the financial markets has on your own Forex trading. By broadening your perspective to include intermarket analysis and various forecasting techniques that I have outlined briefly in this e-book, I am confident that you will be able to improve your trading performance by gaining more self-confidence to make better trading decisions, whether you trade only the Forex market or also trade equities, options, or futures.
Louis B. Mendelsohn is a world renowned pioneer in the application of personal computers and trading software to the global financial markets. He is President and Chief Executive Officer of Market Technologies which he founded in to develop technical analysis trading software for the commodity futures markets. Mendelsohn, himself, began trading equities and stock options in the early s.
Then, in the late s he switched to commodities, as both a day and position trader, and developed trading software for the commodities futures markets. Mendelsohn authored a series of ground-breaking articles in Futures magazine in which he outlined his vision for strategy back testing and optimization for personal computers. By the mids these capabilities had become the standard in technical analysis trading software for both stock and futures traders throughout the world. Following the October, global market crash, first predicted by ProfitTaker in August, , Mr.
Mendelsohn took technical analysis to the next generation when he introduced the first commercially available PC software in the financial industry to address the emerging globalization of the financial markets through the application of intermarket analysis in trading software.
Several years later, in he introduced his second generation intermarket analysis software program, VantagePoint Intermarket Analysis Software, which applies the pattern recognition capabilities of artificial intelligence to global intermarket data, and quantifies the effects of related global markets on each other in order to make short term market forecasts. Since then, Mr. These achievements have been responsible for Market Technologies phenomenal growth over the past decade, with thousands of trading software customers in nearly countries worldwide, and three wins since in the Inc.
magazine competition of the fastest growing privately-held companies in the United States. Following the October, aftershock exactly two years after the crash, Mr. Mendelsohn warned traders about the likelihood of more frequent and severe global financial aftershocks and the potential for a full-scale global meltdown.
In numerous articles and editorials he called for clearing firms, regulators, and central banks to develop coordinated, worldwide contingency plans before, not after, the onset of a crisis that could ripple through the global financial system and bring about a full-scale meltdown.
In a Journal of Commerce editorial on February 5, entitled Build a Global Safety Net, Mr. Mendelsohn argued that vital security, clearing and regulatory issues must be resolved to assure the fiduciary integrity of the international financial and banking systems, particularly during times of worldwide financial or political crisis. In this editorial he went on to caution that The integrity of the world financial and banking systems necessitates that international coordination and cooperation.
among the various stock and futures exchanges, central banks, finance ministries, regulatory agencies and international banks be implemented through formal agreements and informal understandings to replace the last minute, frantic telephone discussions during a crisis [which] has been the modus operandi.
Months later in an April, editorial in Futures magazine entitled Hour Trading: Lets do it right, Mr. Mendelsohn warned that aftershocks following Black Monday's financial earthquake may become more commonplaceas the hour electronic trading systems are fully implemented -- unless serious clearing, security and regulatory deficiencies are overcome, and that Global trading on a hour basis, without a real-time global clearing mechanism, presents a major threat to the integrity of the world's financial markets.
In in a seminal book entitled Artificial Intelligence in the Capital Markets, Mr. Mendelsohn devoted Chapter 5 to a detailed overview of the global financial system and the systemic risks that would become an ever-present danger for traders. In this chapter, Mr. Mendelsohn indicated that few traders comprehend the intricacies of derivatives Since most derivatives did not exist during the last major bear equities market in , the degree of influence that derivatives might have in precipitating or accelerating a major worldwide financial crisis, more severe than , can not yet be measured.
Mendelsohn has been widely quoted in other financial publications over the past quarter-century, including the Wall Street Journal and Investor's Business Daily, has contributed to more than half a dozen books on the global financial markets, has been interviewed live on CNN, Bloomberg, and CNBC, and since has authored three books on the global financial markets. His book, Trend Forecasting with Technical Analysis: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Intermarket Analysis to Beat the Market, released in December , has more than 45, copies in print to date.
Chapter 1, entitled Trading in the Global Economy, addresses the factors that have brought about the global financial system in the increasing risk that financial crises can spin out of control quickly, as interdependent financial markets fall, setting off a chain reaction that reverberates worldwide.
His next book, Forex Trading Using Intermarket Analysis: Discovering Hidden Market Relationships That Provide Early Clues For Price Direction was released in March In this book he discussed the role of the currency and foreign exchange markets in the global financial system. The following year, in a cover page article entitled Ripple Effect Looms Large in FX Markets in the November, issue of Stocks, Futures and Options Magazine, Mr.
Mendelsohn was prophetic in his prediction of an impending worldwide financial meltdown. In this article he warned that The commodity markets, such as crude oil and gold, have a tremendous effect on other financial marketsincluding U. Treasury notes and bonds, which, in turn, have a powerful impact on the global equity, debt and derivatives markets.
They subsequently affect the U. dollar and Forex markets, which then further influence prices of commodities. This dynamic has already played itself out a number of times since the crash, including the Asian currency crisis, the Long Term Capital Management debacle and the crisis following the terrorist attack on the United States.
Each occurrence underscored the far-reaching implications regarding the fragile stability of the global financial system, itself, amid the ever-present prospect of a worldwide Category 5 financial meltdown. Again, in Mr. Mendelsohns most recent book published in June, , entitled Trend Forecasting with Technical Analysis: Predicting Global Markets with Technical Analysis, he spelled out exactly what actions traders needed to take to protect their wealth and prosper at the onset of a global crisis that he believed would roil the global financial system and precipitate a full-scale meltdown of the financial markets.
Traders who have applied Mr. Mendelsohns global intermarket software tools. have been able to make rational, effective trading decisions during the global meltdown and are well positioned to take advantage of unprecedented trading opportunities while many other traders and investors have become paralyzed with fear and weakened financially because they lacked the proper analytic tools needed to succeed in the global financial markets of the Because of his expertise and pioneering achievements in the application of computers and trading software to the global financial markets over the past three decades, Mr.
Mendelsohn's biography is highlighted in Marquis Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in Finance and Industry, and in a time capsule at the White House in Washington, D. He has been a full member of the Market Technicians Association since and a colleague of the International Federation of Technical Analysts.
Born in in Providence, Rhode Island, Mr. Mendelsohn received a B. degree in Administration and Management Science from Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business in , a M.
degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo in , and a M. degree with Honors from Boston University in As an avid collector of antique office technology and equipment, Mr. Mendelsohn has antique typewriters and pre-electric calculating machines which are early forerunners to today's personal computers that date back to the late has also collected classic cars, including his favorite, a Buick four-door sedan luxo-rod.
Mendelsohn, his wife of 32 years, and two of his three sons live on a ranch near Tampa, Florida where they raise Paso Fino horses and a variety of cattle and other livestock. A comprehensive collection of Mr. Less-experienced traders are always asking questions about how to best learn and study "fundamentals" or "technicals" in markets.
books on fundamental analysis of futures markets are so rare is because the subject matter is so enormous. Here is just a smattering of macro fundamental factors. Technical analysis addresses part of the dilemma of keeping up with all the fundamental factors impacting futures market prices because price activity is a. Price activity also factors in ideas and speculation about the future prospects, and future news, for the market.
But the big challenge for traders has always been to be among those people who know about all those fundamentals and chart patterns in a timely manner and can interpret what they mean for prices in the market they are trading.
Now a new trading portal called TraderPlanet www. com gives traders a source of fresh fundamental and technical analysis information daily as well as many trading education features to help move the trader down the road of more successful trading. Markets are changing constantly every day and every minute, as anyone who has observed recent events can attest.
What you read in newspapers and magazines can become outdated quickly, and traders need current information and data to succeed.
I RECOUNTED HOW I GOT INVOLVED in commodity futures trading and computerized technical analysis in my book, Trend Forecasting with Technical Analysis: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Intermarket Analysis to Beat the Market.
I traded stocks and options for nearly a decade, using various technical analysis methods before I began day trading and position trading commodities in the late s while employed as a hospital administrator for Humana, one of the largest for-profit hospital management companies in the United States at that time.
A physician friend who traded gold futures provided the encouragement that moved me from equities into this new trading area. At first I subscribed to weekly chart services, which had to be updated by hand during the week and required a very sharp pencil to draw my support and resistance lines, which in turn determined where I placed my stops. It was very annoying to anticipate the trend direction correctly, only to miss out on a big move after being stopped out prematurely at a loss due to an ill-placed stop.
With only a handheld calculator available to compute numbers in the years before microcomputers, I learned the underlying theories and mathematical equations for numerous technical indicators, such as moving averages, and devised mathematical shortcuts to expedite my daily calculations. I was quite excited when I brought home my first personal computer in the late s. Soon I was teaching myself programming and writing simple software programs to automate many of these calculations.
