In fact, the only thing we can be certain about is our stop-loss...we can predict this with 100% accuracy. I guess we are not really talking about forecasting in its true sense, but rather, added signal confirmation to lift the win/lose ratio a little more in our favour. That said, I did trade 90-Day Bank Bills back in the 80s on a 30/70 win/lose, and still made regular profits, so as long as the risk/reward is be......

HotForex In Brokers Mar 05 at 09:07
[quote]ED_Forex posted: Account number 269022 Hotforex is a market maker and Scam cheater, no STP broker like they claim to be. Look at hotforex website, there's no liquidity providers names, I was hotforex client, when I asked account manager about who are hotforex LP's he said can't reveal the names, it's a secret!!! How can't a client know who are the LP's of his broker when hotforex claim to be STP!!! Hotforex scammed me $15000 after leaving my account to negative balance, how can an accoun run on negative margin!! hotforex didn't apply its margin policy and hotforex gave me in one a......
Leverage is simply a facility to multiply your capital earnings power. Whether it's 1:100 or 1:1000, risk is still controlled by your stop-loss, which in turn is determined by your risk factor. If the result of a trade were 100% guaranteed, you would use the maximum leverage available and fully employ that leverage, because you couldn't lose. But reality is different...we NEVER know the outcome of a trade in advance, so we never fully utilise leverage. For example, if you open an account with $1,000 and 1:100 leverage, you could trade a $100,000 contract, but it would only take a 1% loss to wi......
[quote]alexforex007 posted: Another good method to use when placing your stoploss is to place it outside volatility, and volatility could be measure using the ATR, good work.[/quote] Agree! Any measure used that will keep you outside volatility will help reduce premature exits. As volatility dies down, prices tend to consolidate, and so the stop-loss automatically moves closer to the price action and not give back too much if triggered. [cool]
If it bugs you when your stop-loss seems to be working against you at times, like giving too much unrealised profit back at exit, or triggering too frequently, resulting in a string of small, but annoying losing trades, this might be helpful. I deal with this issue by setting a Buy Entry Stop at the previous low less ATR, and Sell Entry Stop at previous high plus ATR. This allows room for a new trade to settle-in without risking too much. My Buy Trailing Stop is moved to the previous low IF the ask price is more than the entry price plus ATR, and the Sell Trailing Stop is moved to the pr......
