Mathematics in Trading: How to Estimate Trade Results

A certain level of mathematical background is required of any trader, and this statement needs no proof. The matter is only: How can we define this minimum required level? In growth of his or her trading experience, trader often widens his or her outlook "single-handed", reading posts on forums or various books. Some books require lower level of mathematical background of readers, some, on the contrary, inspire one to study or brush up one's knowledge in one field of pure sciences or another. We will try to give some estimates and their interpretations in this single article.

Profit From The Carry Trade In Currency Trading

If you propose to trade currency for the longer term, such as I do, rather than as a scalper who trades the market hundreds of times as day, then a key element to your success will be in understanding the carry trade. This provides trading opportunities due to the difference in interest rates between the various currencies. Each country and therefore currency has its own interest rate, which is then converted into borrowing and lending rates by all the banks. When a bank lends you money the rates are always higher than when it borrows (like a spread). It pays you a lower rate on your funds deposited, than it charges you to borrow! Now, obviously rates between countries vary enormously. The interest rate in Japan is currently near 0%, and the New Zealand central bank rate is 7.

The Forex Broker - Friend or Foe?

For traders who are new to currency trading, it can be quite a confusing experience, not least because everything seems to be FREE!! If you have come from a stock or share trading background, you will be very familiar with all the costs associated with each trade. Firstly there is the cost of receiving the data via a data feed. For realtime data this can be expensive, then there is the brokerage cost of each trade both to open and close, then there is a spread, and finally stamp duty ( a UK evil!!) Anyone trying to day trade is on a hiding to nothing! In the world of Forex, few of these costs exist. Realtime data is provided free of charge, either by the brokerage, or by one of the many good sites such as fxstreet.

Trading Currency And Keeping A Job?

One question I am often asked is simply this - Is it possible to trade currency and hold down a full time job at the same time? My answer is always the same - it depends!! There are a whole variety of factors that have to be considered before you can answer such a question with a simple yes or no. Let me explain. For those of us in the Nothern hemisphere it is proabably much harder to achieve than for those in the Southern hemisphere - the reason is very simple, but ironically it is one of the great myths that is often sold by brokerages and ‘experts’ selling courses, that you can trade currency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Firstly this is not true. The markets are closed at the weekends like most other markets, closing late Friday evening and opening again on Sunday evening ( times vary according to which brokerage you use ) - these are Northern hemisphere times.

Which Chart Timescale Should I Use For My Currency Trading?

The above question is one I am often asked and it is so fundamental to the success of your trading that I thought I would spend a few minutes this morning just explaining how and why it is so important. Firstly, I am assuming that you are a chartist, like me, in other words you believe that virtually all the trading information you require is contained in the candlestick charts. Your trading decisions are based on the interpretation of the candle formations, combined with other simple technical indicators, such as moving averages and volume. When you first start trading you flick endlessely between various timescales from 1 minute charts through to 1 month, hoping that what you see in one, will be confirmed by another.
