В арсенале трейдера много стратегий по различным валютным парам, включая пару eur/jpy. Для того чтобы улучшить результаты в торговле необходимо знать статистические данные движения валютной пары за определенный промежуток времени. Данный подход позволяет ориентироваться во время торговли не только внутри дня, но и недели. Зная среднее движение цены гораздо проще устанавливать тейк-профит и стоп-лосс.
Для анализа движения по дням и неделям был выбран период с 1 января 2017 г. по 31 июля 2018 г. Статистика по месяцам рассчитывалась с 1 января 2011 г. по 31 июля 2018 г.
Статистика по дням
В среднем за сутки валютная пара EUR/JPY проходит 100,7 пункта. Минимальное движение было зафиксировано 07.03.2017, когда пара прошла всего 33,0 пункта, а разница между ценой открытия и закрытия составила 10,4 пункта. Больше всего пара прошла 27.06.2017, разница между минимальным значением и максимальным составила 274,0 пункта.
Рисунок 1 - Статистика движения EUR/JPY по количеству пунктов
Как показано на рисунке 1, рассчитывать на то, что пара eur/jpy часто будет проходить по 200 пунктов в сутки, не приходится, потому что таких дней было всего 12 из 410. Больше 250 пунктов пара проходила только 3 р…

What is Technical Analysis?
Technical Analysis is the forecasting of future financial price movements based on an examination of past price movements. Like weather forecasting, technical analysis does not result in absolute predictions about the future. Instead, technical analysis can help investors anticipate what is “likely” to happen to prices over time. Technical analysis uses a wide variety of charts that show price over time.
Technical analysis is applicable to stocks, indices, commodities, futures or any tradable instrument where the price is influenced by the forces of supply and demand. Price data (or as John Murphy calls it, “market action&rdquo refers to any combination of the open, high, low, close, volume, or open interest for a given security over a specific time frame. The time frame can be based on intraday (1-minute, 5-minutes, 10-minutes, 15-minutes, 30-minutes or hourly), daily, weekly or monthly price data and last a few hours or many years.
The Basis of Technical Analysis
At the turn of the century, the Dow Theory laid the foundations for what was later to become modern technical analysis. Dow Theory was not presented as one complete amalgamation, but rather …

So my friends. Today we will discuss porthole by figure. And we will consider the figure "Cup with a handle". This is perhaps the most convenient for trading figure, since after the formation of the "cup", as a rule, a rollback (correction) follows. Thus, placing a turn-down sell order on the edge (the right side) of the "cup", after waiting for a correction on Fibonacci, you can transfer the stop loss into a breakeven and trade without risk of losing money and also trade by pipsing.
So, how does the trade take place.
In the figure, the cup is shown in the form of two maxima parallel to each other, and equal in height.
When trading multiple orders at once, you can use the "Fibonacci line" to determine the reversal points, in order to set a "take profit".As for exhibiting Stop Loss, then everything is purely individual. I just recommend it when the first fractal appears and confirms it with two subsequent candles to move the stop loss to this fractal in order to insure against possible losses in case of a trend change. In the figure below, the red shaded length shows the set stop loss level.
Take profit is set at the very bottom of the "cup", as shown in the first figure.The same pr…

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity … Albert Einstein

No matter how one values the recent ESMA activities, concerning the killing of binary option trading or raising minimum margins or the cutting of leverage respectively.
One important and sobering fact about the success of traders has become now official and reliable information.
In the ESMA paper itself a losing rate of 74% to 89% of FX and CFD Traders was reported by the different national supervising bodies.
But the story does not stop there, all brokers regulated by a national authority within ESMA, have to publish their “Loss Odds” on their websites now.
I made a simple test. Just opened any random broker comparison site, only selection was FCA regulated (could have been BaFin, could have been CySec, etc.). And checked the odds of the first 10 brokers listed. I do not name any names, as I do not want to promote or blame any of them. Anybody can simply repeat my experiment and have her own results.
  1. B1 85%

In some cases Regulators determine that firms have been concealing retail or customers accounts and have found out that they are breaching the Regular T margin rules in the process. Sorry to say, arbitrary and selective enforcement by regulators in a prejudiced manner has proprietary traders and firms to restructure, modify how they transact business and to close down doing business in their current manner.
Since more and more scams are involve with regulators and brokers, here are 9 good questions that you can ask in choosing a Forex broker. Although looking for a broker can be a quite a complicated search for traders, you have to be certain to make sure to ask prospective brokers for you to have a reputable broker to work with. These questions may be a good basis for choosing a good broker.
1. Ask the broker what regulatory authority is your brokerage firm registered with and in what country. The NFA or National Futures Association conducts audit on books and is one of the best present regulators. The Forex market is presently far less regulated than stocks, bonds, and commodities.
2. Know how fast they can execute the order. Apparently, it should be a second or less than a seco…

Blockchain is considered as a virtual, transparent ledger, being invented to fix cryptocurrency transactions and generally regulating Buy-Sell process of cryptocurrency.
