Something every trader should know


Recommended Posts

Nice little summary, you do learn a **** of a lot while being in this business, before derivatives i was buying and short-selling classic old style shares in companies, so good wins some bad losses, that is the way it goes. For me always stick to your trading plan and make your own decisions. Yes great share ideas, but bottom line, i always implement by executions based on my own gathered knowledge. And the television section is also good. Although i often tune in to IG live and Bloomberg and almost every financial paper, journal, site etc, this is only to generate ideas and remind myself to look at everything and then narrow it all down and try and make sense of it all. In terms of tools, best to use everything you can use, more likely to have a probability trade. My strategy is trend following, i dont really like to call tops and bottoms, best assume until their is a good enough reason to fight the trend. It is all a learning curve and you have to constantly adapt to the times. From the year 2000 it was mergers and aquisions and flipping tones of IPOS during the dot.com bubble, 2008 was simply anything involved in real, estate and pretty much buy indexes and stocks during QE cycle, 2013 short-sell all commodity stock and commodities themselves. Now is looking and sell bonds, probably indices and long dollar pairs etc.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
