    Using technical indicators

    A typical technical indicator applied to a chart uses one to three pieces of information: time, price and/or volume. The indicator takes that information and creates a visual representation of the data to give you insight into where a pair is headed.

    Because Forex is a distributed market, there is very little volume information. That usually leaves just price and time. There are a lot of ways to analyze that information and the potential variables are endless. Understanding how to wade through this data is vital. Technical indicators are designed to help.

    Introduction to charting

    Charting is a primary tool of use by the forex trader. Combined with solid fundamental analysis, it give traders insight into trade timing and potential profitability.

    Reading and analyzing charts is something that you get better at with time and experience. But it's also easy to abuse, as it's a highly subjective exercise that you must learn to adapt to your trading style. Be sure to understand whether you're long- or short-term focused, and decide if you're aggressive or more conservative, as those factors impact your use of charting and technical analysis.

    Introduction to Fibonacci analysis

    Fibonacci analysis is a technical method for forecasting levels of support and resistance and projecting price targets. It can be used to set stops as well as timing entries, however, the most valuable information is what it can tell us about risk.

    How to Use Oscillators to Trade Breakouts With the Trend

    The basic points discussed in the video are as follows:

    • Only go short if price is below the 50 simple moving average
    • Only buy if price is above the 50 simple moving average
    • If price is above the 50 SMA and the oscillator reaches an overbought level, wait for a pullback. If price rallies and goes back to where it was when the oscillator flashed the overbought signal, then buy
    • The same principle can be applied with oversold levels and shorting when price is below the 50 SMA

    Walter Peters on Price Action vs. Indicators (And How Indicators Can Hinder Development)

    In this video, Peters shares his take on the age old discussion of price action vs. indicators, and why he favors price action. He believes indicators can be especially tempting to new traders to easily discard without thoroughly thinking about, while experienced traders who use indicators will be able to determine what the indicator is telling them simply by looking at the price anyway.

    How to enter a Support and Resistance trade

    Hi everyone, it's Erich with this week's Trick's of the Trade, the Learn Trading segment of the Traders Helping Traders Big Weekend Edition. This week it's not so much a Trick we're going to focus on but rather an answer to a question that was emailed to me by one of the members, who was interested in knowing a little more about how we actually enter a support and resistance based trade. I'm glad he sent this question because i tend to forget that from time to time we need a refresher of some of the more basic futures trading concepts. If there's ever anything we're doing that you're not clear on I hope you will drop me an email or post it at the forum so I can answer it for you .Alright, let's take a look at how we actually go about entering a support and resistance trade. Fortunately it's not as difficult as you might think. There are a lot of ways to enter a market.
