Genuine Q: Why Do New Traders Try Trading the Hyper-liquid Assets Dominated by Institutions/HFTs/Algos?
Serious question: not a knock on people who have found success with this! I'm genuinely curious why new traders try starting out by trading the hyper-liquid assets that are so heavily dominated by massive volume from institutions/HFTs/Hedge Funds/Algos etc? Large cap stocks, major forex pairs, commodities, and futures/ETFs/options on these? I would imagine retail wants to trade with other retail, but these assets are overwhelmingly dominated by "professionals". On the flip side, low cap stocks, obscure currencies, even crypto have a much much higher percentage of volume coming from retail. I would think that's where retail would want to start because it's so much easier to "beat" retail than it is to beat sophisticated algos. The liquidity is virtually infinite for a retail trader, so in theory there's unlimited upside, but you're competing with the largest and most sophisticated players in the world. For example HFTs trade on news within microseconds and transmit information across the country at close to the speed of light. The liquidity and order flow in SPX instruments comes from not only futures, SPY, underlyings (and options) but so much occurs inside darkpools that are invisible to retail. Edit: this reminds me of the study published here about futures day traders in Brazil. The study concluded, in essence, that retail traders trading the "Mini-Ibovespa futures" (Brazil's E-mini) essentially never profited in any meaningful sense. Of the 19646 day traders they followed, only 3% had any profit at all after 300 days, and only 0.4% made more than $54/day. The single best performer of the nearly 20k profited just $310/day with massive volatility to his/her daily profits. Also, traders didn't appear to get better over time. https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3423101 Again not criticizing people who turn profit but it just seems so much harder to do. Thanks!
Hello. Are there any Forex traders here? I’m interested to start a Telegram group for us - where we can discuss brokers, platforms, indicators and other related topics. I’m not so interested in people who use eToro, I’m looking for people who are slightly more advanced than that, such as MT4 or MT5. It won’t be a Telegram group for Crypto or stocks, just major forex pairs only (perhaps some exotics if we want.)
Why did the USD immediately weaken against all other pairs the moment that really bullish June Non-Farm Payroll numbers and other data came out on Friday?
The June Non-Farm Payroll report that came out on Friday showed a comparatively strong 222K vs 179k forecast new jobs, as well as an upward revision to May's numbers. Looking at all of the other data that came out at the same time, it looked relatively bullish, so why did the USD fall against the other major forex pairs immediately the moment when the numbers were released, closing much further down in the first minute following the announcement? I would have thought that the USD would have gone up the moment that it was announced because on the whole, the data showed strong performance when compared to previous months.

APPLE’S iPHONE 2018 WITHOUT QUALCOMM Apple announced that it might part ways with Qualcomm, because its next iPhones and iPads won't need the chip, which connects devices to wireless networks and supplied by Qualcomm. Instead, the tech giant could make a deal with Intel, who already is a supplier for other parts. The decision is not made yet and negotiations are under way. FACEBOOK IS STILL ON TOP Since social media exist, it has always been there, that consumers reach out to businesses directly on their Facebook pages more often than contacting them via Twitter. Interestingly, they visit company blogs slightly more than they do on Twitter and it is increasing, which makes an even greater gap between the companies. Important to note that consumers are seeking resources on multiple channels and brands are increasing their efforts at being present to assist customers, but by far, Facebook is the most applied social media for these searches around the world. COMPANIES ARE “TRUMPLY” DEPENDENT The Trump administration suffered policy setbacks and personnel changes this year, at this point we are awaiting for the new FED Chair to be named and it is crucial who that will be. Will Trump give us a name today? Or is he still playing the good old game he always does when it comes to a serious decision? We should not forget that he is the same businessman he used to be, and for him to make the right choice, needs time and consideration. FX WORLD As we are waiting for Trump to name Janet Yellen’s successor, Japan’s ZN note, and to settle matters in Spain, major forex pairs behaved as we expected. The EURUSD rallied a bit but 1.17 is still a strong resistance. As the pair formed a head-shoulders, we can see that it goes down to a neck-point, offering sell options to 1.13 level. The GBPUSD broke above the hammer’s top, buyers are coming in. If it could break above 1.325, we might see a rally to the Brexit’s melting down mark; th1.365 level. USDJPY is still looking for buyers, awaiting for the 10-year bond (ZN) announcement from Tokio, which could show a negative correlation. The pair has plenty of support in 113, but 112 is a possible mark.USDJPY has pushed to 114.5 on friday, the probability that it rolls over and tests 112 is high at this point. If 113 holds it back from going lower, we could see again a buying option. Under 112 it is offering a clear sell opportunity.USDJPY pulled back initially and formed a hammer but it has a massive resistance on the 114.5 level. If it breaks through 115, it is a buy and hold market, till then look for dips to buy. Check our website for more information:https://gtc.news
Hello all. I have been working with a demo account on plus500 for quite some time now. After falling into a big pile of cash I figured I could try real money just once. I only trade major forex pairs with the strategy I took from this YouTube video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyZ8KCWazeo . This strategy seems to work at least a bit as I have doubled my account from 400 to 800 euros in the last week. It may just be luck but I do see that the strategy seems to work the way she says. What I would like to know is why this works and how it works. Could someone explain this to me and any others that might be interested?
