    An Introduction to Order Flow Trading

    Order Flow Trading is a profitable form of trading. It provides professional and retail traders with information based benefits, and it offers the complicated step-by-step analysis of Order Flow in the form of charts that can be interpreted in a simple way. People have been puzzled about what Order Flow Trading(OFT) actually is.

    OFT takes into account other forms of trading. The aim is to attempt to predict the prices of the stocks through pending orders of other traders. In anticipation of prices it is important to ensure that potential traders have large orders; the traders should be active market participants who have pending orders.

    Scary facts about Order Flow Trading

    Trade mentors have been advising the traders to trade what they see instead of trading what they think. The market does not actually move according to your thoughts and it should not. Picking levels is a risky way to exercise your trading, and has been banned by professional traders. However, Order Flow Trading cannot be implemented without picking levels, and this is the reason why OFT has been frightening for many traders.

    Traders who were mentally picking up levels, and simultaneously observing the price charts discovered that the levels had been all blown away. However, things can vary by using tight stop losses and especially if you consider picking levels carefully. Consider picking levels with caution and use tight stop losses.

    The Methods of Functioning of Order Flow Trading

    Picking up levels is actually a complicated matter. OFT needs proper analysis power which most of the traders miss. With the help of proper training, technology and proper support you can learn how to pick levels to continue with OFT. There are methods of Order Flow Trading:

    1. The trading method, which is recommended by expert traders, is to determine the apparent resistance levels which is confirmed when the price arrives. This is one of the methods of order flow trading since the system is dependent on there being a great deal of orders on the different levels.
    2. The professional traders of order flow trade in a different way. If you know how to trade order flow then you will definitely not wait for confirmation of price action before trading order flow. This is quite a risky approach to OFT.
    3. Wait for the close of hourly candle before you enter the trade.
    4. Pick up the levels to enter a better price. This will assist in getting a higher price which will result in profits long before traders who trade with price action enter the trade.
    5. Use tighter stops to place your stop in a much better pace which is the advantage you gain while trading with level-picking.

    Trading against the given trend should not intimidate you. Obvious support and resistance can be achieved through the previous highs and previous lows which is the way to pick up levels.

    Online Trading Platforms and Stock Exchanges

    The stock exchange market is one of the most liquid markets in today’s economic environment. Trading in shares on these markets is one of the most important activities nationally and globally as it is one of the most effective ways in which companies can increase capital with minimum loss. It also gives traders the opportunity to earn profits.

    Traders can choose to use one or both of the available channels to trade in stocks. These are online trading platforms and stock exchanges.

    The similarities and differences between online trading platforms and stock exchanges are outlined below in order to provide traders with appropriate information about which method to choose.
    Charging of Commissions

    The two methods have similarities because in the traditional stock exchange, the stock brokers will always charge a commission on every stock that is traded through them.

    The same is also true for online trading platforms because online brokers will also charge a commission on the traded stocks. Sometimes this is hidden in the costs, but in spite of what is usually said, they may not charge a lower rate than the stock exchanges. These rates vary from one online broker to another and sometimes may be higher than those in traditional stock exchanges.

    Capital Gains Tax

    Governments usually impose a stamp duty in form of a capital gains tax on any stock that is traded on the stock market.

    Regardless of the platform, whether it is stock exchanges or online platforms, the trading of shares will attract this tax.

    Successful Foreign Currency Trading

    In order to successfully implement foreign currency trading strategy, you must be able to recognize, assess and track trends within the Forex Exchange Rates so that you can determine whether it is a good idea to trade or not.

    When choosing the currency pairs to trade in as well as establishing the strategy, it is essential to take time to read the historical information as well as evaluating pricing charts so that trends in the Forex Exchange Rates can be followed.

    How to Determine and Use Forex Exchange Rates

    Many forex traders prefer not to carry out a lot of research and perform with what they have. This is where the Forex software is extremely useful as it only requires past data to begin evaluating the Forex Exchange Rates, and gives recommendations about buying and selling of different trade indicators.

    The software creates these trade indicators after examining the progress in the Forex Exchange Rates in a certain period of time. The trading software is programmed to identify any defined trend in the exchange rates as the prices change.

    Are Forex Exchange Rates reliable?

    At a national and global level, the foreign currency is one of the biggest markets as well as the most volatile place in the economy. The reason for this is because the prices can fall or rise in minutes. Therefore, it is very important to acquire a trading account that will permit you to carry out the tracking and monitoring of the Forex Exchange Rates in real time.

    Trading in out-dated exchange rates is usually not advisable because they have a higher risk of losing and taking traders away from their planned profit margins.

    Real-Time Forex Exchange Rates or Historical Data?

    Historical and real-time data is significant for all forex traders, and have a big role to play in ensuring that the trading strategy becomes successful.

    Historical data records changes in pricing of a particular currency over the past few months, or even years. This is really important during the creation of a trading strategy and inputting data into the trading software. The more data there is, the more likely it is for the software to identify the actual trends.

    When the actual trades are placed, real time forex rates should be employed to avoid paying too much to buy currency or closing the trades at a loss due to slippage.

    Why do Forex Exchange Rates vary for every brokerage website?

    As the stock market is volatile some websites may not be updating their rates as fast as they change which makes it appear like different sites have a varied pricing.

    Furthermore, some brokers may place their commissions into the spread by adding some pips in the difference between the bid and the ask prices. The result of this is a dramatic change in the pricing in comparison to other brokers.

    Technical and Fundamental Analysis


    The rule followed by all investors in all markets worldwide is that they are looking to earn money. However, if they closely analyse and assess the movement of the foreign exchange market or the stock market, they would discover that the nature of the investments being made in these markets, and the nature of the money being placed, is similar to an activity that is well known for either providing heavy losses or enormous profits. This activity is gambling.

    Businessmen who gamble for too long often find that they have run out of luck, and this loss of luck eventually leaves them on the streets after they lose everything. This is because gambling is an extremely high risk activity, and is partly based on luck. The high risk nature of this activity can result in profit if the gambler has good luck. However, the balance of probability states that the gambler’s luck will eventually run out, and when the gambler’s luck runs out, he will find that he has lost everything that he had previously earned.

    Hence, the smart businessman does not gamble often, and definitely never gambles with everything that he owns. Businessmen who become rich and remain rich usually take a more analytical approach to their investments, especially when these investments are applied in volatile markets such as the stock or foreign exchange market.

    In order to minimize risk, businessmen employ analysis techniques so that they can gather information to assist them in making investments that would be profitable.

    There are two main analysis techniques that are implemented by traders:

    1) The first analysis technique is called technical analysis. Technical analysis involves the studying of past trends in order to ascertain patterns. If the market that you are trading in seems like it is following a previous market trend, the trader can act based on this trend. If there is a pattern, technical analysis usually provides a safe prediction of how the market will behave in the future, and the use of this analysis technique can help investors and traders make sound financial investments in the markets.

    2) The second analysis technique is called fundamental analysis. Fundamental analysis involves studying the statements and financial dealings of the business in order to determine the amount of assets, liabilities and earnings, as well as the statements and financial dealings of competitors and an in depth analysis of the market’s current status. All this information can give a trader an idea of which businesses may be making a profit in the future, and knowledge regarding future profitability of businesses can allow the trader or investor to make a healthy investment or purchase and earn a profit.

    The Global Debt Pyramid Scheme and Leverage


    There is a widespread global problem which was inevitable after paper money had been introduced. This problem is that almost every country in the world is in debt.

    Debt is an extremely fascinating concept as governments need money in order to run countries. It’s an obvious fact that running a country costs a lot of money. Governments obtain money from the people they govern as governments are not entities that are run for profit, nor do they own profitable businesses or any other ways of earning money. This money is assigned as taxes, and it is considered the obligation of the citizen of a country to pay their taxes in order to provide their government with enough funds to run the country.

    Essentially, the government uses these funds (taxes) to run the country. All tax money should be spent on the country, but governments often surpass the amount of these funds. Government expenditure is similar to the spending of people because it usually exceeds their financial means. Governments printed more money and referred to this money as debt to justify the spending of more money. This money is used to pay for everything that taxes would have paid for. This money though is debt.

    Spending money that is not owned by the government is a widespread global economic problem. Global debt has increased so much and is now estimated to be more than one hundred trillion dollars which is growing at an increasing rate every day.

    This massive debt has placed the global world economy on the edge of disaster. The tiniest movement could cause a huge change, something that has been experienced in Italy. Italy was reduced from a pillar of European economy to a beggar state due to an increase in the interest rates by only two per cent. If interest rates change drastically, entire countries could go bankrupt. This system that has been created is essentially faulty as it involves the attribution of monetary value where there is no value. Money has a much greater value than the paper it is printed on, and from the time it became cheap to make money, governments have been spending a lot more than they actually had.

    No one knows where this will end up, but it is enough to say that when the balance is changed, natural order will be resumed suddenly in an aggressive way.

    Is time running out on US Dollar as the leading reserve currency?

    The might of the USD and its position as the leading reserve currency has been called into question by numerous analysts over the years.

    During periods of political and economic uncertainty doubts about the USD attract a wider audience, prompting further proclamations about its demise.

    Some analysts claim a collapse is imminent, others predict that it is just a matter of time and yet it remains the most highly traded currency in forex, the dominant currency in international trading and remains the leading reserve currency.

    It has history on its side and is clearly still trusted by its trading partners.

    But the question of its future warrants consideration as it comes under threat from the EUR and other currencies who may be ready to challenge the USD as the dominant reserve currency.

    TROUBLE FOR TRUMP’S ECONOMIC POLICY

    When US President Donald Trump came to power in 2016 he pledged policies that would propel the value of the USD to new levels. The objective was to boost US structural economic growth while at the same time reducing the US trade deficit.

    Trump’s plan was going to be achieved by making large investments in infrastructure and extensive tax reforms in combination with a highly protectionist trade policy.

    Thus far Trump’s plans have been hamstrung by political division and budget constraints. The US trade deficit continues to grow and there’s been little sign of the promised protectionism.

    Concurrently, doubts about the eurozone’s future, following the Grexit crisis and the shock of Brexit, have receded. Germany’s vision of economic convergence is shared by new French President, Emmanuel Macron, a pro-European reformist, and this axis has rejuvenated the EUR. It is pressing a strong claim, similar to when it was first launched, as a rival reserve currency as foreign investors shift capital into the eurozone.

    If US trade deficit continues to grow while the eurozone finally delivers on its potential, then a sustained period of EUR performance would follow and prove it might be a viable alternative to the USD as the leading reserve currency. It’s one of the key conditions that would make the prospect of a USD collapse easier to accept and navigate through.

    The eurozone is not alone in its ambition to establish the EUR as a reserve currency. China will also look to benefit from uncertainty regarding US’s strength, and Asian countries will be more sympathetic to their offer of a closer relationship.

    Gold has also benefitted from the apparent weakening of USD’s status, recently peaking in value after years of slow decline.

    Bitcoin has the potential to stake a claim, but it’s too soon to be sure if it can accede to the role.

    Strategies for Successful Trading Decisions – Going Short or Long


    The Forex market is quickly becoming the focus of attention for millions of new entrants as a result of its unique advantages. A large number of people have learnt how to make clever investment choices in order to take advantage of the market. Two strategies in Forex are going long and going short – once you understand these two strategies you will be able to make important decisions in order to be profitable. The two main strategies will be examined below.

    Going Short

    This trading strategy is when the base currency is sold in order to buy it at a later stage when the price begins to fall, resulting in a return from the transaction. For example, if the current GBP/USD is 1.5345 meaning we pay 1.5345 Dollars for one Pound Sterling, and we have $1000 dollars, we would sell the Dollars in order to purchase the Pound Sterling. This is carried out when the cost is expected to fall again in a short period of time. When the price GBP/USD falls to 1.5350, this means that more Dollars can be purchased with the same amount of Pounds that were obtained at the start. The additional dollars can be kept as profit which were earned by considering the dollar as the base currency.

    Risk in Short Position

    As with all financial markets, forex involves the same amount of risk. If the prices go in the exact opposite direction than originally expected, there will be a loss instead of a profit. For example, if the GBP/USD goes to 1.5340, you would not even get the same amount of Dollars that you sold initially. This strategy is only profitable if prices drop.

    Going Long

    In the Forex Market, going long refers to buying of currencies with the intention of reselling them later when the price increases. If you notice an increasing trend of a currency for a long period of time, then buying would be the correct option and keeping the trade open until the price reaches its maximum point before reversing. For example, if GBP/USD is showing an increasing trend for the past few hours or days and the current price is 1.5400, then you can sell the Dollars to purchase the Pounds and wait for the prices to get to the desired level. When the price gets to 1.5500 you could sell as that earns you more Dollars than your initial investment.

    Risk in Long Position

    There is the risk of the price falling once you have purchased the currency. In this situation, your loss would equal the difference in the price at the point which you bought the currency and the price at which you are selling it. Regardless of the investment in the Forex market, it is essential to know the market trend and the economic conditions of the base currency.

    Avoid the pitfalls of forex trading robots

    Forex trading robots have become a popular tool in the personal forex market. They’re often attractively priced and are marketed as ‘Expert Advisors’ that can operate on many of the favoured trading platforms. However, an increasing number of traders have been left disappointed with the purchase of their automated forex trading program that ends up performing well below expectations, which leaves them feeling cheated and even results in claims of fraud.

    Sold on profits

    Anybody with a product to sell will focus on the product’s most attractive features to get you to buy it, and that is especially true about automated trading products. Often, they’re presented as offering the path to financial freedom and being easy to use; claims that are backed up by historical trading profits and glowing testimonials from seemingly satisfied users. In reality, the evidence of their success is just a small sample of trading when the software enjoyed a profitable spell and leaves out the less impressive other periods which more accurately reflect its true capabilities and how it performs for most of the traders who buy it.

    The disclaimer makes it alright

    Every forex trading robot is sold with a disclaimer (sometimes well hidden) that denies any responsibility for how it will perform in the future. The words may be different each time, but the message always amounts to the same thing: there’s no guarantee this software will trade profitably based on its historical performance and is there to protect the vendor from potential fraud claims.

    Get a refund but not your money back

    In an effort to placate customers who were unhappy with their trading robot purchase, many vendors would simply offer a refund. But while the purchase price of the forex trading software would eventually end up back in their bank account, the money they lost using it was gone.

    Trawl through any online trading forum and it won’t be long before you come across a thread full of unhappy traders who feel they’ve been misled by false advertising about forex trading robots that fail to deliver profits.

    Traders who purchased the forex trading software through Clickbank tend to have an easier time getting a refund. Legitimate claims made by the purchaser within the 60-day / eight-week period are usually dealt with quickly and efficiently.

    While it is not recommended that traders purchase a forex trading robot, if you do so, make the purchase using Clickbank and thoroughly test the software during the risk-free trial period to minimise the financial impact if the trading results prove to be disappointing.

    Too good to be true

    The saying goes: if it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t. Genuine innovation has made our lives easier and better, but if trading software was capable of delivering the results vendors claim it can – and for such a small investment – why do banks continue to pay their forex traders six figure salaries?

    The simple truth is that it isn’t possible for trading software to deliver positive results on a consistent basis. Successful forex trading can be learned and is highly profitable, but it requires skills and judgement that simply can’t be replicated by software.
