The Trade And
Tradeable Environment
(An Appropriate Trend)
Below are a few tips towards better understanding how to interpret the influence of the trend.
.
Also below, there are a few Forex basics.
.
Trend Defined By Indicators
Key considerations of most indicators include:
♦  Direction – The most important consideration in the trend is the direction of the signal.
•  Direction (Sell, Stagnant, or Buy)- The first and most important consideration of the indicators.
•  Steepness (Steeper Stronger)- The steeper the indicator line the stronger the signal.
.
♦  Leading Edge – The leading edge concerns the degree of convergence (tighter lines) or divergence (wider lines):
•  Convergent (Tighter Stronger)- The more convergent or tighter the leading edge lines the more likely the market will continue in the same direction.
•  Divergent (Wider Weaker)- The more divergent or wider the leading edge lines the more likely the market will turn into a new direction.
.
♦  Origination Point – It is important from where the trade is originating:
•  Nearer To 0 or 100 – The more extreme the point of origination the stronger the signal.
•  Over-Bought / Over-Sold – Another way of representing the extremes.  The more to the extremes of these signals the better.
•  Middle Field – The more the origination is from the middle of the indicator field the weaker and less sure the trade.
.
♦  Other Considerations – These considerations are of lesser signal significance, but do provide for the total indicator signal:
•  Color – The color on top does suggest what action is now dominate.
•  Cross – The moment of crossing does suggest an immediate expectation in the market.  For instance at the moment of a green line crossing on top it would be expected that a next or near candlestick is likely to be green.  The same for the red line crossing on top and the red candlestick.
.
.
.
Trade And Trend Setups
The following are general examples of the type of trend and trade setup categories to search for to speed up trading and improve trading.
.
A couple of notes:
♦  The BASIC 80 / 20 Trade is just a basic trade of no more than an 80% Demo Trade win rate.  In coaching you will learn the full trade.
♦  The 80% / 20% also means that 80% of the trade setups will not be tradeable.  So, skip them for the 20% that are more tradeable.
♦  It is better to take fewer better trades than keep having to recover from less favorable trades.

A. First Consideration (Trade And Tradeability (Trend))
1. Trend – Any Down, Better If Stronger Down – Steeper / Tighter
                – If Up, Trade Only If Weaker Up – Flatter / Mixed / Wider
     (W) ( S Dn > Dn ) ( W Dn > Neutral > W Up ) || ( Up > S Up ) (L)
                                                            Tradeable || Not Tradeable
2. Trade – Major Green – Starts At / Above 80 (Nearer ~100 Better )
                – If Trend Is ( S Dn > Dn ), ~70 OK. Get In! Skip Timing.

3. Timing – Pressure – Red Line On Top
                   – Candlestick – Red Body Below Both Pressure Lines
4. Terrain – Don’t Cross Darker Gray Lines (Solid Or Dashed).
5. Trend   – Check Acceptability
6. Top       – Take Fewer Better Trades

4. Terrain – Don’t Cross Darker Gray Lines (Solid Or Dashed)
5. Trend   – Check Acceptability
6. Top       – Take Fewer Better Trades
Why? – Too much upward trend that will keep the trade from predictably going down.
Observation – Of course the trade is high and in the Over-Bought.  That is because the trend is so strong it is pushing the trade far upward.  So no trade.
Trend   – Up or strongly up.
Trade   – Up.  No trade as simply being pushed up
Timing – No trade. No timing consideration.
Terrain – No trade.  No trend consideration
Trend   – Is the trend still supportive.
Top      – Is the trade better than average (is it worth the trade?).
Why? – Too much downward trend that will keep the trade from predictably going up.
Observation – Of course the trade is low and in the Over-Sold.  That is because the trend is so strong it is pushing the trade far downward.  So no trade.
Trend   – Up or strongly down.
Trade   – Up.  No trade as simply being pushed down.
Timing – No trade. No timing consideration.
Terrain – No trade.  No trend consideration.
Trend   – Is the trend still supportive.
Top      – Is the trade better than average (is it worth the trade?).
Why? – The trend is undecided, mixed, and weaker so the trade is more able to follow its own course.  In this case downward in a sell.
Observation – The trade is up in the Over-Bought region without much influence from the trend pushing or pulling on it.  As such, the trade will be able to largely follow its own course from the Over-Bought potential energy downward.
Trend   – Undecided, mixed, and weaker of down, flat, or up.
Trade   – Up, and likely able to move downward.
Timing – Wait for timing setup.
Terrain – Consider darker lines.
Trend   – Is the trend still supportive.
Top      – Is the trade better than average (is it worth the trade?).
Why? – The trend is undecided, mixed, and weaker so the trade is more able to follow its own course.  In this case upward in a buy.
Observation – The trade is down in the Over-Sold region without much influence from the trend pushing or pulling on it.  As such, the trade will be able to largely follow its own course from the Over-Sold potential energy upward.
Trend   – Undecided, mixed, and weaker of down, flat, or up.
Trade   – Up, and likely able to move upward.
Timing – Wait for timing setup.
Terrain – Consider darker lines.
Trend   – Is the trend still supportive.
Top      – Is the trade better than average (is it worth the trade?).
Why? – The trend is downward and will assist in the sell trade moving downward, even farther than normal.  This creates an ideal sell trade.
Observation – The trade is up in the Over-Bought region by happenstance or illogical reasons.  It should not be there, but it is.  The trend should be pulling it down.  So this unusual circumstance is ideal as the trade can move downward from its own building energy from above the Over-Bought and with the assistance of the downward trend.
Trend   – Downward or strongly downward.
Trade   – ~70 OK, as may not make 80.  Too much downward trend.
Timing – Don’t wait for timing to setup.  Take the trade at ~70.
Terrain – May go through darker lines to take a double trade.
Trend   – Is the trend still supportive.
Top      – Is the trade better than average (is it worth the trade?).
Why? – The trend is upward and will assist in the buy trade moving upward, even farther than normal.  This creates an ideal buy trade.
Observation – The trade is down in the Over-Sold region by happenstance or illogical reasons.  It should not be there, but it is.  The trend should be pushing it up.  So this unusual circumstance is ideal as the trade can move upward from its own building energy from below the Over-Sold and with the assistance of the upward trend.
Trend   – Upward or strongly upward.
Trade   – ~30 OK, as may not make 20.  Too much upward trend.
Timing – Don’t wait for timing to setup.  Take the trade at ~30.
Terrain – May go through darker lines to take a double trade.
Trend   – Is the trend still supportive.
Top      – Is the trade better than average (is it worth the trade?).
.
Direction And Steepness
Consider the following guidelines on steepness and direction.  Obviously, and in general:
♦  Direction – Whether the indicator line is pointing down or up.
•  Downward – A downward direction suggests a sell or short trade. 
•  Upward – An upward direction suggests a buy or long trade.
.
♦  Steepness – The angle of the indicator line.
•  Downward – The more downward an indicator signal, the more predictive to the downside is the signal.
•  Upward – The more upward an indicator signal, the more predictive to the upside is the signal. 
 
+90° – +45° (No Trade At Any Angle)
     •  No Trade / No Sell – Too much upward trend that will keep the trade from predictably going down.
     •  No Points – There is no trade.
.
+45° – 0° (Closer To 0° Better)
     •  Riskier / Probably Sell – The trade can be taken.  The closer to 0° the better.
     •  Riskier / Fewer Points – As the trade is less predictable in the down direction, consider setting the take profit at fewer points.
.
0° – -45° (Closer To -45° Better)
     •  Standard Sell – The trade is likely to fulfill as a sell trade.
     •  Standard Point – Take the usual profit for the trade method.
.
-45° – -90° (Closer To -90° Better)
     •  Strong Sell – This is the ideal sell trade.  It does not occur often.
     •  More Points – You can set your take profit further, say double the standard points.  Let the winners run when you can.
+90° – +45°(Closer To +90° Better)
     •  Strong Buy – This is the ideal buy trade.  It does not occur often.
     •  More Points – You can set your take profit further, say double the standard points.  Let the winners run when you can.
.
+45° – 0° (Closer To +45° Better)
     •  Standard Buy – The trade is likely to fulfill as a buy trade.
     •  Standard Point – Take the usual profit for the trade method.
.
0° – -45° (Closer To 0° Better)
     •  Riskier / Probably Buy – The trade can be taken.  The closer to 0° the better.
     •  Riskier / Fewer Points – As the trade is less predictable in the down direction, consider setting the take profit at fewer points.
.
-45° – -90°(No Trade At Any Angle)
     •  No Trade / No Buy – Too much upward trend that will keep the trade from predictably going down.
     •  No Points – There is no trade.
Steepness And Tightness (Pressure Tradeability)
The Pressure Indicator is the key signal for the trend.  Major-Minor Indicators can be included, but usually it is the Pressure that is associated with the trend.
.
As such, consider the following Pressure Indicator line examples for gaining better understanding about the direction and strength of a Pressure signal, and therefore its tradeability or non-tradeability.  The same principles associated with the Pressure can be generalized between the Major lines and the Minor lines. 

Tradeable and Non-Tradeable Pressure Indicators are shown below as learning examples.
.
“Never trade against the pressure” is a common statement in the group. Generally this is true, but various of the trade methods listed in this website actually are designed to trade against weaker pressure signals. How can these trade methods be proposed in contrast to the Group wisdom?

♦ Many more profitable trades are available by prudently counter-trend trading. This is a skill that any advanced day trader should master as part of their trading skill set.
.
♦ Realize that the Pressure Indicator is a lagging indicator, while the Major-Minor Indicator is a leading indicator. As such there are very few trades that occur where all the lagging Pressure Indicators and all the leading Major-Minor Indicators align in the same direction. As such, one must trade against weaker pressure indications.
.
♦ Trading against the Pressure Indicators is a matter of context. It has been found that when trading with the more powerful 240M or 120M Pressure or Major-Minor Indicators, that the 5M, 15M, 30M, and most often the 60M Pressure Indicators have no bearing on the trade. As such, simply discount these Pressure Indications when trading larger times. If trading shorter times, then the shorter Pressure Indicators become more important.
.
♦ It has been found that there is a close similarity and behavior between the 120M and 240M Pressure and Major-Minor Indicators. As such, under certain weaker 240M Pressure Indicator conditions, the leading 120M Major-Minor Indicator will lead the 120M and 240M Pressure Indicators and lead them in a new direction or the 240M Pressure Indicator will tolerate some 120M movement against due to the somewhat powerful market influences the 120M Major-Minor Indicator represents.
Attempts were made to give more difficult examples that could go one way or the other. There are some simple to interpret examples to provide that context as well.
Note that what is stated about a buy or a sell Pressure Indicator signal would apply to in the opposite direction of a sell or buy Pressure Indicator signal is the same image was inverted.  Meaning comments for an upward trend are the same for a similar downward trend.

Forex Basics
The following are some general information about the Forex market.
Forex Currency Pairs
The Forex is a market place for trading the value of one currency against the value of another currency. What results is a currency pair and a comparative price between them.
 1 – EURUSD (1,105 B)
 2 – USDJPY (851B )
  3 – GBPUSD (  445 B)
  4 – AUDUSD (  249 B)
  5 – USDCAD (  206 B)
  6 – USDCHF (  172 B)
  7 – EURGBP (    96 B)
  8 – EURJPY (    76 B)
  9 – NZDUSD (    72 B)
10 – EURCHF (    43 B)
Price
The Forex price is the price paid to buy one currency with another.
Base Currency / Quote Currency, or XXX/YYY, or simply XXXYYY.
XXX is the base currency of the pair.
YYY is the quote currency of the pair.
For example: EURUSD of 1.55000.
Buy – EURUSD = To purchase 1 EUR a $1.55000 USD is required.
Sell – EURUSD = Upon sale of 1 EUR a $1.55000 USD is gained.
.
Alternative example: USDJPY of 115.678.
Buy – USDJPY = To purchase 1 USD $115.678 JPY is required.
Sell – USDJPY = Upon sale of 1 USD $115.678 JPY is gained.
PIPs
A PIP is the common measure of movement in the Forex market.
.
Definition
The definition of a PIP is not important, but is ascribed these types of descriptions:
PIP – Price Interest Points, or
PIP – Percentage In Point (just think of a PIP as one movement in the Forex market).
Forms
The exact position of a PIP in the price varies by the price relationship of the currency pairs.
Two most common forms of PIP currency representation:
1/10,000 or 0.0001 of a dollar – Most Common
1/10 or 0.01 of a dollar used with JPY currency pairs
Other representations exist based on the currency pair, such as:
Silver – 1 PIP = 0.001
Gold – 1 PIP = 0.1
Trade Value = PIP Value
As stated above a PIP is most often represented by 1/10,000 or 1/100 of a dollar, but with leverage it can take on greater or lesser value.  Practically speaking use the following guidance.
.
PIP value rule of thumb – 1.00 Lot size (Risk / Reward) causes 1 PIP = $10.00
 
Company Best Practice – Make Lot size no more than 0.1% of account size
Single trade examples:
$  1,000 account – Maximum Risk/Reward = 0.10 Lot size or 1 PIP = $  1.00.
        (0.10 is a forgiving practice lot size)
$  2,500 account, Maximum Risk/Reward = 0.25 Lot size or 1 PIP = $  2.50.
$  5,000 account, Maximum Risk/Reward = 0.50 Lot size or 1 PIP = $  5.00.
$10,000 account, Maximum Risk/Reward = 1.00 Lot size or 1 PIP = $10.00.
$50,000 account, Maximum Risk/Reward = 5.00 Lot size or 1 PIP = $50.00, etc.
.
Multiple trade examples:
$  5,000 account with 2 trades simultaneously, then each at 0.25 Lot size or 1 PIP = $2.50.
$10,000 account with 3 trades simultaneously, then set each trade at 0.33 Lot size or 1 PIP = $3.30.

PIP Math Examples

Most Common Forex Price Formats
1 PIP = 0.0001
Most currency pairs displayed to four decimal places.
.
Example –    0.12345 Price
        Position 3 =  10    Pip
        Position 4 =    1    Pip (or 10 Points)
        Position 5 =      1  Point, 1/10th PIP, or Micro-PIP
.
Math Examples:
Subtract 5 PIPs from a price. Add 10 PIPs.
        0.12345                         0.12345
              – 5                               + 10 
        0.12295                         0.12445
Alternative Forex Price Formats
1 PIP = 0.01 Japanese Yen
1 PIP = 0.001 Silver / 1 PIP = 0.1 Gold
.
Example – 115.678 Price
            Position 6 =  10    Pips
            Position 7 =    1    Pip (or 10 Points)
            Position 8 =      1  Point, 1/10th PIP, or Micro-PIP
.
Math Examples:
Subtract 5 PIPs from a price. Add 10 PIPs.
          115.678                         115.678
                – 5                              + 10  
          115.628                         115.778
Forex Trading Costs
The following are the two primary costs in trading the Forex market.
.
Spread
The difference between the buy position and the sell position. Consider it a type of fee for participation in the Forex market.
.
In the image the spread is:
1.23941 Buy side
1.23929 Sell side
0.00012 PIP Spread
.
Commission
Commissions vary by broker, with the following considerations:
♦  Commission are listed with the specific trade.
♦  Commission also vary by the Lot size or the risk / reward sought in the market. The greater the Lot size the greater the commission.
.
Swap Fees
These are fees associated with carrying a trade from one Forex day to the next, with the following considerations:
♦  They are usually small and of little significance, unless a trade is left in for many days.
♦  Swap fees are usually negative, but can be positive and add value to your account.
♦  More important than swap fees in leaving a trade in over a Forex day or the weekend is the unpredictability of the market direction at the open of the next market.
.
You have to overcome the spread, commissions, swap fees, etc. before your trade will clear profitably. The market accounts for this for you automatically. This can be a concern is you are placing smaller 3, 5, 7, etc. PIP trades, but has little significance with larger trades.

These basics will get you started with some understanding to begin winning some trades.
