Trading Mindset

Hello Traders! After many weeks of daily active trading on my part, i've hit a bit of a quiet period in which i'm still getting good trades off, however they aren't the 2-3 per day i was getting on occasion.  This is in part due to the recent spike in vol we have seen on the back of market jitters based on rising global yields.

Weekend comment plus AUDUSD Sentiment trade 24/02/21

Hello Traders,Weekend thoughts on this weeks action:Crazy week full of ups and downs.... !! The word on everyone's lips from seasoned market pros to the novice investor seems to be 'Yields' this week. The Bond Markets are playing a game of chicken with the FED at the moment, almost daring them to take action.... be that in the form of negative rates or yield curve control, seeing them start to put their foot on the long end by buying longer duration bonds.  A risky proposition either way.... I personally think that they won't tolerate a big steeping of the curve [...]

Liquidity Gap Fill Trade

What is a Liquidity Gap? First - without getting too much into market mechanics ( I will do so in a future blog post ) - you have to understand a basic concept. Markets are really trying to find the balance between buyers and sellers. Period. So if you learn anything here - take this away -> MARKETS WANT BALANCE. You may hear people say that markets are consolidating - what professionals take this to mean is that price is in balance. Markets will continue to be in balance unless some sort of news or force [...]

Sentiment Analysis week of 1 SEP 2019

  Here was the state of Retail Sentiment on 9/1/2019. This was Labor Day weekend in the U.S. and many markets were closed on Monday. As you probably know, it was also NFP week.

One user said "Your analysis helped me save some pips [...]
