The Forex Codes Chart Patterns 

Many traders never really understand this point and lose.

I teach you how to trade using Technical Analysis (charts) and Fundamental Analysis (economic news) Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com

The Forex Codes Chart Patterns 

Chart Pattern is one KEY to trading success

It is a Market “Fingerprint” or “CODE”

Use only the most basic and obvious chart patterns just like the Pros do!

Others will have spotted them hence more probability of success Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com

The TREND is your FRIEND until it ends.

UPTREND. – Higher highs and higher lows

DOWNTREND – Lower highs and lower lows

SIDEWAYS – Range bound highs and lows Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com

The Forex Codes The Bulls and the Bears!  

 

BULLS are optimistic and look for an upward market direction So if someone is Bullish he thinks the market will rise. BEARS are pessimistic and look for a downward market direction So if someone is Bearish she thinks the market will fall Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com

The Forex Codes The Long and the Short of it!  

 

If you trade a position in which you BUY the market you are said to be LONG If you trade a position in which you SELL the market you are said to be SHORT Hence if you buy the market you must be bullish at that moment If you sell the market you must be bearish at that moment Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com


The Forex Codes Japanese Candlesticks (intro)

The Forex Codes Japanese Candlesticks (intro) 

The Japanese began using technical analysis to trade rice in the 17th century. Candlestick charting first appeared sometime after 1850

Long bodies indicate strong buying or selling and a faster move. The faster buying or selling activity occurs, the longer the body becomes.

The Forex Codes Average Daily Range   

Each currency pair has an Average Daily Range With the GBP/USD (commonly known as Cable) it is about 140 Pips When the market pushes prices greater in excess of the ADR then opportunities arise for trading retracements It also helps as a guide to prevent you from getting into trades when the market is already stretched Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com

The Forex Codes Support and Resistance 

Very important to Professional Traders

Some expert traders can trade purely on S and R

The importance of S and R must not be underestimated!

Larger timeframes more important! Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com

The Forex Codes Support becomes Resistance 

The concept of Support becomes Resistance (and vice-versa) is very powerful and VERY trade-able A firm support level (perhaps a major low) once it is broken will likely turn into a strong resistance level at a future date Conversely a strong resistance level (perhaps a major high) may turn into a firm support level once it is broken Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com

The Forex Codes - Timeframes 

Daily, 4hr, 60min, 30 min, 15 min and 5min are the ones used by me

In general levels of S and R on larger timeframes are more important than on smaller timeframes

Pros will use 4hr and daily charts far more than the smaller timeframes Copyright © 2007 Stephen Margison www.sm-forex.com
