What is Forex?

Forex trading, also known as foreign exchange trading or currency trading, is the buying and selling of currencies on the foreign exchange market. The goal of forex trading is to profit from fluctuations in the exchange rate between different currencies.

The forex market is the largest and most liquid financial market in the world, with a daily trading volume of over $5 trillion. It operates 24 hours a day, five days a week, making it accessible to traders all over the world.

To participate in forex trading, you will need to open a trading account with a broker. There are many different forex brokers to choose from, so it is important to do your research and select a reputable one. You will also need to deposit money into your trading account to cover the margin requirements of your trades.

Once you have opened a trading account and deposited funds, you can start placing trades on the forex market. You can trade a variety of currency pairs, such as the US dollar and the euro (EUR/USD), or the British pound and the Japanese yen (GBP/JPY).

To make a trade, you will need to decide on a currency pair to trade, the size of your trade (called a “lot”), and your desired direction (either to buy or sell). You will then place an order with your broker, specifying these details. If the market moves in your favor and the exchange rate reaches the price you set, your trade will be executed and you will realize a profit. If the market moves against you, however, you may incur a loss.

One of the key considerations in forex trading is risk management. It is important to carefully consider the size of your trades and the level of risk you are willing to take on. You can use stop-loss orders to limit your potential losses, but it is also important to have a solid understanding of risk management techniques to protect your trading capital.

Forex trading can be a lucrative opportunity, but it is not without risk. It is important to thoroughly educate yourself on the market and develop a solid trading strategy before diving in. It is also a good idea to practice with a demo account before risking real money. By understanding the risks and learning how to manage them, you can increase your chances of success in the forex market.

Pre NFP notes.

Looking at the EURUSD today.
Made new low of the week this morning and was picked up strongly just ahead of the Yearly Support2 pivot level.
The Bund action suggests we should consider EURUSD to be a Buy on Dips for now.
Preferred levels to buy after the news is 1.0530 and if stretched to 1.0510 this level offers the better risk to reward.
targets on the upside are 1.0610 to 1.0620.
A break and strong hourly closes and day close in the 1.0600s suggests potential for 1.0700 to 1.0800 in the course of the rest of the month.

Keep it tight and trade to trade another day.

About us

Cyclist
Very little is publicly known about Cyclist, so the best way to describe him is by using an analogy.

Most people around the world know of the car show Top Gear. 

If Market Cycles Research were a car show, Cyclist would be the racing driver Stig.

His identity is unknown, and will remain so. He has been a superstar on Kitco and assisted many people to protect their funds, and many more to grow them substantially.

He tracks more Cycles than most people even know exist, on more tradable financial instruments and metals than most brokerages provide.

His equity curve is probably more beautiful than the the perfect lap, and he is more generous with his time and knowledge than Pythagoras was to his apprentices.

He is known as Cyclist, and he will remain a mystery, as will the secrets behind his craft…..

Hex
If we continue with the Top Gear analogy, Hex is a combination of the other 3 characters.

He talks too much, like Clarkson,

He drives an old fashioned car which James May might be happy in,

He has had as many serious car crashes as Hammond!

But he has been surviving in the markets long enough to know enough, yet realises you can never know too much, there’s always more to learn.

He is fascinated by the Global Macro, yet is intensely focused on the short term market vibrations.

He works more hours than actually exist in a day, and he will always be available to assist others that need it.
