Monthly Trading Signals (September 2012)


“The mindset that you brought into trading is not the mindset that will bring success in trading.” - Rande Howell

There are numerous pairs and crosses on the currency markets that have gained or lost tens or hundreds of percentage over the calculable period of time. These gains and losses were caused by positive and negative fundaments events. Increase and decrease in the values of those currencies were results of significant gains and drops in the respective countries’ economies.  The crosses analyzed aren’t the only instruments traded with the type of analysis used. Below you’d find some pairs and crosses on which I opened positions on a monthly basis. Personally, this is what I do, not what’s recommended that others should do. Below are just 10 of my open trades. The maximum duration for each trade is one month, and we should note that the orders have been running before this article was written.

The position sizing is 0.01 lots for each $2000 (thus making it 0.05 lots for each $10000). When an order goes positive by 70 pips, I move the stop to breakeven. From 200-pip profit upwards, I use 50% trailing stop. Many market speculators use only the fundamentals to buy or sell in the markets. They don’t enter in an uptrend and they abhor truncating their losses. Even less percentage of market speculators would be courageous enough to trade a pair/cross when it’s already gotten overextended (they’d even prefer to smooth their positions at those phases).

Conclusion: As market speculators, we need to close many losses sometimes as a result of the tendency to overtrade and open too many positions. It’s better to go for ultimate profits like those big financial institutions do, instead of determining what to gain on daily or weekly basis.
