Forex Trading: The Bionic Forex Trader

May 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Marc Principato, SMB Forex
Many struggling forex traders are in that position because they don’t realize one thing: the job of a professional trader is to isolate the least random market information and then take risks that are proportional to their trading capital.

May 22nd, 2013 | By | Category: Steven Spencer (Steve's) Blogs, Trader Development, Trading Lesson
One type of price action that puts me on alert for a hard down move in the market is unusually large gyrations in quick succession. That is what is what we saw during the first few hours of trading today. Points 1&2 on the chart show up and down moves larger than the ATR of the SPY.
