HI all , Would you all please share your opinion if to trade for ladder , forex is safer or indices is safer? 

I have been trading ladder for sometime and I realise indices tend to have high volatile in the price when around10 min before the market close. Why ? 

Forex does not.. It purely depend on news .. No matter how good your technical indicator. When any high news come in.. All indicator is useless.

I find it depends your area and level of expertise - fx or indices, the latter being driven by your knowledge of the market and its structure in relation to the particular indice. You might also choose to specialise in one indice. likewise one currency or region or style - eg. "commodity" currencies.

 

In relation to indices closing. Equities indices are perhaps most prone to window dressing and last minute deal completions.

 

I find ladder or binary trading to be the closest thing to gambling I have done in any trading.

Hi adt_fx , 

Agreed that ladder is always like gambling , up or down.

So what you play the most ?

I try pick some Small Cap equities and I trade FX Accounts focussed on different timeframes. Mainly fundamental, some technical analysis. Hit a difficult patch after building up. Took my eye off the ball 2017 - female distractions. What do you trade other than Ladder?

I typically look at Bollinger Bands, Stochastic's, RSI's, MACD, and Moving Averages, in the shape of predominantly Bar Chart, and Chart Patterns.

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
