The Forex and CFD Trading Course


The Forex market is the largest financial market in the world. During the late 1990’s with the development of the internet, trading software saw the emergence of Forex brokers who allowed trading on margin. That was the start of the growth of retail trading. Traders are able to trade spot currencies with market makers on margin by putting down only a small percentage of the trade size and can buy and sell currencies in seconds.

How to Read Forex Charts

“When trading a system it is very important that you understand indicators used. In the 2xMACD system we will use 4 different indicators. EMA, MACD, Stochastics and Pivot Points.

EMA or Exponential Moving Averages is the indicator that traders use in conjunction with another EMA for a different period, to signal confirmation of a change in price behavior.

We use 2 exponential moving averages to show us the INTERIM trend. The current trend should be aligned with major trend.

How to Start in Forex

MACD is used to identify a new trend, whether it’s bullish or bearish. MACD points to MAJOR trend. When both interim and major trends are aligned our chance to have a successful entry is higher.

Stochastics is a momentum indicator. Stochastics is used as an entry indicator. We align stochastic with a trend and buy or sell when stochastic lines cross each other. Stochastic has a high degree of accuracy to spot overbought and oversold conditions.

We use Pivot Points to identify potential support and resistance levels. A pivot point and its support/resistance levels are areas at which the direction of price movement could possibly change. Pivot Points tell us where to place our stop loss (SL) and where to place profit target (TP).

The Various Indicators Used by Forex Trading Signals

Take Profit (TP or T/P) is an order used by currency traders specifying the exact rate or number of pips from the current price point estimating where to close out their current position for a profit

A stop-loss serves to limit a trader’s loss on a position. By using stop loss your losses will be limited.”
