EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and GBP/USD volatility is on the wane Outlook on EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and GBP/USD likely to calm down following last week’s volatility. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 27 March 2023 EUR/USD hovers above support EUR/USD’s sharp decline from last week’s $1.0929 high amid worries surrounding Deutsche Bank’s double-digit fall in its share price, leading to flight-to-quality flows into the US dollar, pushed the cross to Friday’s low at $1.0714, to marginally below the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1.0736, before closing above it late last week. On Monday morning the currency pair is trying to remain above the moving average and the March tentative trendline at $1.0742. While this is the case, the mid-February high at $1.0804 may be revisited. Minor resistance above $1.0804 can be spotted between Thursday’s low at $1.0825 and Friday’s intraday high at $1.0837. Where a drop through Friday’s low at $1.0714 to be seen, however, the early March high at $1.0695 would be eyed.

A fall through £0.8777 would likely engage the February low at £0.8755. Resistance can be found at Thursday’s £0.8814 low and also comes in along the 55-day SMA at £0.8834 and at the 15 March high at £0.8843. Source: IT-Finance.com GBP/USD hovers below last week’s high at $1.2343 GBP/USD’s advance stalled at Thursday’s $1.2343 high with it dropping to $1.2191 before stabilising. Provided that this low underpins, the 24 January low and mid-February high at $1.2263 to $1.227 may be revisited, a rise above which would lead to the $1.2343 high seen last week being back in the frame. Only and advance above Thursday’s high at $1.2343 would push the December and January highs at $1.2446 to $1.2448 to the fore. Below Friday’s low at $1.2191 meanders the 55-day SMA at $1.2154 which may act as support, were it to be revisited. Source: IT-Finance.com

Hello every one.
I thought as a member of this fantastic community, I will share some of my experience as a trader so that new traders don't end up making the same mistakes that I have made over the years.
Firstly, I am not a professional trader however, I have been doing this on and off for a few years now. I am sure there are other members in this community that have a lot more experience and can contribute to this thread. Like I have indicated previously this thread hopefully will help new beginners in making profits.
Okay, if you are reading this then I will assume that you have an IG account. This is one of the most important aspects of trading in my opinion. Having a good broker with an excellent trading platform. I have used many platforms previously and am happy to say that IG has met all my expectations and more. I need to point out that I am not an employee of IG. The fact of the matter is they offer a fantastic platform built for mobile and web. So naturally, the first point that I would make to a new trader is to find a reputable broker.
Secondly, in keeping with the theme of brokers, ensure that they have a demo account option. Lucky for us, IG wins on that front as well.
Now that you have your account opened, and funded, you are ready to trade? Not yet... This is one of the biggest mistakes that I made when first starting out. I was so eager to trade, that I ended up losing a good portion of my initial investment. If I could turn back the hands of time, I would of spent more time reading, reading, and more reading. There is so much of free information available on the Internet and YouTube that you have no excuse to learn what in fact CFDS are and, how they work. I wish someone had told me that before I thought I knew everything.
I am going to call this post one. If this is something you guys think I should continue updating then I will in instalments. Looking forward to your comments and opinions on this thread.
