Forex Technical Analysis

Course Format: Online / Virtual Classroom / Webinar
School/Trainer: Forex Trading USA

Technical analysis is the study of historical prices in an attempt to "predict" or know with greater probability where future prices may be. This is accomplished through the application of mathematical equations to forex prices and the use of other techniques. In forex trading, technical analysis is the key. Consequently, an understanding of technical analysis is essential to trade currencies. This training section will build upon the knowledge obtained in the charting and basic sections of the forex training. While it seems that the goal of many technical analysis courses and seminars is to inundate (and confuse) traders with hundreds of different technical indicators and endless theory, our sole purpose is to teach traders something practical. Strong emphasis is made on the practical use of technical analysis in forex trading. In this section of the training, we will cover:

The importance of proper charting techniques
Technical analysis concepts
Using currency charts with technical indicators
When to buy and sell a given currency pair
Candlestick charting
Practical technical analysis in the forex market

School/Trainer: Forex Trading USA

A trading strategy is a systematic, step-by-step, approach to trading. Using a forex system to trade is of utmost importance to the long-term success of a forex trader. A forex trading system or strategy will equip a new trader with a set of steps to follow; a set of steps that will build discipline and self confidence in the trader. There are many traders in the forex market that don’t have a set of strategies and simply go by "gut feel." This can be dangerous because the trader will eventually fall prey to one of his greatest enemies - his emotions. As part of our forex training program, we teach our traders to apply different trading strategies. The goal of Forex Trading USA is to educate traders to rely less on their fear and greed and more on a disciplined trading approach. The strategies tought will include:

Which currencies to use
Specific conditions to buy a currency
Specific conditions to sell a currency
Price stop loss placement and trade management*
Application examples
No amount of technical analysis in the world can save a trader from a lack of direction. Having a forex system to trade provides the guidance a trader n... [Read More]
