Hey traders! How is your trading going? Have you noticed something different with the markets?
It’s obvious that the market conditions change from time to time (we cant expect the markets to trade in the same way for ever), and it looks like in the last couple of months, the conditions have changed…
Is it good or bad for us?
It could be both…

Hey traders… how is it going?
There are two possible things that we need to analyze when testing one system:
- Accuracy of the system
- The risk reward ratio
A lot of traders “try” to focus on the accuracy of the system. I get a bunch of emails asking me about how many times my system is right, etc.

Hey traders! How is everything?
You know every morning I scan the markets and look for the currencies that have:
- Clear swings
- Clear S&R levels
- And a good profit potential
One of them is the EURCAD…
Here is my analysis…

We always talk about strategies, indicators, whether we should go long or short, fundamental releases, etc.
But we never seem to care about the tools and equipment you need to actually take your trades.
And that’s what this article is about… to help you set up a trading station that will actually help you feel more comfortable with your trading.
Here we go.

Do you believe in luck?
Sometimes I do… and some other times I dont…
There are moments in life where we might get lucky… but when it comes to trading, I think luck is defined differently.
To me, luck in trading is: trading the right instrument at the right time.

As you already know, one of our main jobs as traders is to scan the markets and try to find the instruments that have two things:
Clear S&R levels, this way we know what the market is doing and most important, what it is likely to do, and
Good profit potential, well, this one is self explanatory.
If you keep trading those instruments, you’ll get results.
Of course, sometimes the market will move against you, but it doesn’t matter, because above all, you’ll be focusing in your trading as a whole, a group of trades, not individual trades.
So you only need to make sure to win more when the market goes on your favor… and that’s it!
Forget about the accuracy of the system.
Most profesional traders will tell you that 80% of their profits, come from 20% of their trades.
Do you agree with me?
Here is the signal.

Hey traders, how is everything?
You know, tomorrow could be a volatile day… the FOMC statement is due tomorrow and it has proven to be the most important fundamental release, at least the one that has the most impact in the market.
So you have to be careful, because the market will go crazy if we get something different from what traders/investors expect.
I follow a simple rule, if my trade doesn’t have more than 80 pips on my favor, I just close it.
You don’t have to break your mind creating complex rules.
Retracement or Breakout Signals?
Which one is better?
The truth is that both of them work… each one of them have their own advantages.
You could set your order on breakout signals and go away… so if you don’t have much time, just use breakout orders.
Retracement signals tend to have a tighter SL.
So I like both of them, I dont have a special preference… As long as the signal is in the direction of the market condition, I take them…
What’s your take?
Ok, now lets take a look at my signal… by the way, it is a retracement signal.

Hey Traders, how was your weekend?
As many of you already know, it was my birthday last Friday… I received a ton of emails and I really appreciate it traders…
And I want to thank you all for that!
Back to trading my friends…
You know what trading is all about right?
What’s it all about?
Its about trading the right instruments at the right time! As I said before, that’s what some traders call “luck”.
Fortunately for us there is a way of finding those traders over and over…
Now, that doesn’t mean that we are going to win all trades, its just about trading with the odds on your favor… if we keep doing the same thing over and over, at the end, we’ll get consistent results.
Ok, now lets take a look at some charts.

Hello traders, how is your week so far?
I have mentioned it before, and I will keep mentioning it because I think it could be the difference between a successful trader and a trader that will keep struggling to get good results.
Trading consistently is about choosing the right instruments to trade, and trading them at the right time.
That’s how some traders define as luck. But I’ve seen a pattern here, the more I do my analysis and make sure I trade at the right time, the luckier I get.
And it makes perfect sense, if you trade a currency pair because it has clear swings, clear levels, a good profit potential, most of the time, the market will move on your favor.
What we’ve got to do now is just repeat: Analyze – Determine which ones to trade – Trade
That’s it traders! That’s how the job is done!
But please don’t tell me that you are trading only one or two currencies, or that you are trading something because of the spread, or because someone else is trading it…
The only reason you should trade any instrument, its because it has both: a clear market condition and a good profit potential…
Does it make sense?
Ok, now here is what happened to my GBPCAD trade
