Why Technical Analysis Beats Out Fundamental Analysis Print E-mail
General Trading Articles | Written by Elliott Wave International |
Well, let me begin my answer with a quote from a national financial magazine dated October 1977. "Over the last few years, the Wave Principle has gathered too much of a following and, therefore, it has less value today. Almost invariably, you can write off a technique when it gets too much of a following." How does this statement look in light of the decade that followed it? "Elliott" had one of its greatest successes. Like the Energizer Bunny, it keeps going and going. And I believe its next success will be its biggest ever. The Principle itself is undoubtedly on an upward spiral of acceptance: three steps forward and two steps back.

Generally Right Vs. Precisely Wrong Print E-mail
General Trading Articles | Written by BKTraderFX |
As traders we all spend an inordinate amount of time obsessing about our trade entries. We shop brokers to make sure that we get the lowest spread possible. We put on limit orders to assure ourselves of not paying a tenth of a pip more than we intend to. And, we become livid when we top tick or bottom tick an entry watching price move against us the moment we put on a trade.

Trade the break-out, trade the bounce, or wait for a perfect signal Print E-mail
General Trading Articles | Written by TheLFB-Forex.com |
Trading the bounce from a recent price reversal that is hitting major support, will more times than not be more reliable than trading the break-outs to new highs. Contrarian trading the bounce tends to create more trades you are already in as the new break-out occurs at the other end; you are then selling as others are looking to buy the new breakout. No point trying to plow a new field when we can follow the lines that we just saw set, the task is so much easier when we are retracing moves that recently happened, the resistance is lighter.

Top 10 Mistakes Traders Make Print E-mail
General Trading Articles | Written by Jim Wyckoff |
Achieving success in futures trading requires avoiding numerous pitfalls as much, or more, than it does seeking out and executing winning trades. In fact, most professional traders will tell you that it's not any specific trading methodologies that make traders successful, but instead it's the overall rules to which those traders strictly adhere that keep them "in the game" long enough to achieve success.

Using Contrary Opinion in Trading Markets Print E-mail
General Trading Articles | Written by Jim Wyckoff |
I have told my readers that one of the best methods to trade a market is to jump on board when prices "break out" of a congestion or "basing" area on the charts and begin a new trend. I have also stressed to my readers that one of the most risky and least successful trading methods is trying to pick tops and bottoms in markets. Now, I'm going to muddy the waters just a bit and discuss contrary opinion.

Attention Traders: Making a Trading Checklist Print E-mail
General Trading Articles | Written by Jim Wyckoff |
Some traders are reluctant to put on a position because they are torn between what they perceive as conflicting market factors. Here's a typical quote from such a trader: "The moving averages are positive, the market is trending higher, but the RSI shows the market as being way overbought. What should I do?"

Too Many Strategies, But Still Frustrated? Print E-mail
General Trading Articles | Written by IFTC Financial Studies |
It is not too far when the veteran traders got used to draw the trend lines using pencil and paper. Whereas the market data sent by mail to them and there was no computer and a trading desk. Were they really wrong by not using super analytical charting platforms? Were they all losers? I bet they were not only doing great but comparing to my fellow traders (Including me) they were absolutely sophisticated traders.
