Section 4: Trading the News
14:02

Here you will learn about the effect of news on the currency markets and how we can replicate the trading approach of the large institutional traders (who trade this very news). The powerful nature of news based trading is hit home by using several recent examples illustrating just how quick and large the moves can be as a direct result of an economic news event.

15:28

Not every economic news item which comes out is tradeable. Instead we focus on those news items which have the potential to create the largest moves to give us the greatest profit potential. In this video, we identify the 8 key news items which are likely to have the greatest impact on a nation's economy and as such the nations currency. Here you will learn what news items to focus your attention on and what you need to see happen when they are released before you would consider a trade.

04:20

This section explains which currencies to focus on so that not only can you filter news events by their likely impact but also the currencies they effect. This will then lead into other sections where we aim to identify the relative strength or weakness of these currencies in order to build a trading plan / idea.

14:28

Now we have our list of currencies to focus on (previous lecture) we need to now determine whether they are strong, weak or neutral so that we can use this information when constructing our trading plan/ideas (see future sections). Part 1 of this video covers how to easily identify the Long Term View on a currencies strength or weakness and how by understanding the bigger picture you can then align it with the short term economic events (next video) for the highest probability trading opportunities provided in the FX markets.

20:28

In the previous section we stressed the importance of understanding the long term view of a currency - bullish, bearish or neutral - and how this is directly related to a central bank's stance. As you will discover in future topics, knowing the outlook of a central bank on its economy and thus its local currency is massively important as it will help you to clearly identify strong currencies and weak currencies to trade. In this video I demo the website I use to provide me with a plethora of useful information regarding each major developed central bank and how this helps me keep my finger on the pulse of every major central bank every single week. Reviewing this site once a week in your early days will reward your handsomely down the line.

10:36

Following on from the previous video (part 1) we now move on to looking at how we are able to identify the short term strength or weakness on a currency pair. This will be provided via the economic events themselves and will either provide fresh strength or weakness to the currency depending on the outcome. You will then learn to how align this short term strength or weakness to that of the longer time frame perspective for maximum effect in your trades. The video also covers the important topic of how to avoid currencies where there is no bias i.e. neutral and in what other trading situations you would not trade certain currencies.

12:43

Now that you have learnt how to identify whether a currency is strong or weak (previous lecture) it is all about pairing polar opposites together for maximum impact. In this video we explore the importance of pairing a weak currency against a strong one or vice versa and why this is so important and powerful when constructing a trade plan/idea.

12:43

Ensure you keep up to date with the latest fundamental picture on each of the 7 major currency pairs! Here you will find an example template to guide you however it is up to you to ensure that you keep abreast of both the short term and long term fundamental drivers of each currency. You can do this via the regular monthly updates from each respective central bank which are communicated via the squawk/news feeds. This offers an insight into the current stance (bullish/strong, bearish/weak or neutral) of the respective central bank and their views on rates going forward and it is this which will ultimately guide your view on the currency going forward. It will also offer a view on what data is key to influencing their rate setting going forward.

As a private individual trader we may not have the financial clout of a tier 1 bank or major hedge fund however we can closely replicate them. In this video we run through the critical resources you will need to not only plan a trade ahead of time but also execute it in a timely, efficient manner.

08:13

Forexfactory.com is one of your critical resources and the starting point for planning your trades.

Section 6: Placing The Trade
14:12

In this video we start to bring the individual topics together to help us construct trading plans/ideas for the week ahead. By building a trading plan for certain events we can be pro-active, leaving the execution of the trade to be the quickest and easiest bit. We run you through the routine you need to follow on a weekly, daily, hourly and executional basis to help tune you into the best trading opportunities the market has to offer each week. Essentially you will learn what to trade, how you will trade it, and when you will trade it. We use illustrations to bring the process to life.

11:16

In this video we detail the 3 key elements of the trade namely how to get in, where to put your protective stop and where to put your take profit level.

11:24

Section 8: Recent Trade Examples
15:53

This section is to bring everything together from the course using real and recent trade illustrations to cement your learnings. The video will highlight the fact that your routine to finding and executing a trade will remain the same every trade and will therefore help you to become a master of trading the news in time.

05:49

23.07.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a buy trade on USDJPY and a sell trade on GBPUSD. In both trade examples you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and exit for a discretionary profit of +50 pips in 30 minutes.

Live trade example 2
01:36
04:15

04.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a buy trade on AUDNZD. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and management for a best case scenario of +80 pips and a worst case scenario of +1pip having moved the stop to break even.

04:29

13.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a sell trade on NZDUSD and a buy trade on GBPNZD after worse than expected retail sales from New Zealand. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and management for a net trade outcome of approximately 30pips.

03:08

14.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a buy trade on USDCAD and a buy trade on GBPCAD after worse than expected manufacturing data from Canada. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and why I decided to close the trade early for a net trade outcome of approximately 20 pips.

03:39

18.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a buy trade on GBPCAD, GBPNZD, GBPJPY and a sell trade on EURGBP after better than expected inflation data from the UK. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and why I decided to close the trades early for a net trade outcome of approximately 150 pips.

06:10

25.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing a slightly different approach to trading the news than what you have seen in the course. Rather than trading a 'scheduled' economic event, we traded a breaking 'unscheduled' event by listening in to my FXPro squawk feed and acting upon fresh information from Japan to take advantage of JPY weakness directly after. This style of trading is more tricky than trading economic events as its important to be fully tuned into what comments/breaking news are 'fresh' and which are old and simply a repeat as only fresh information will move a currency. In the video we identify the specific breaking news item traded, why we traded that particular news announcement and why we decided to buy the GBPJPY currency pair for a short +30 pip scalping trade profit. In due course, I will add further video content to help you do exactly the same once you are up to speed with the main content. In essence you are still seeing the importance of pairing strong vs weak currency pairs.

04:42

25.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a buy trade on USDJPY and a sell trade on EURUSD after better than expected consumer confidence data from the US. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and why I decided to close the trades early for a net trade outcome of approximately 15 pips. After I exited the trade both currency pairs continued to go in my intended direction and had I held out for longer I would have banked over +100 pips. This trade is therefore to show you that I don't always get my exit from a trade spot on, I have my weaknesses and taking profits too early is one of the main ones! Take heart from the fact that you won't always get it right but if you can still bank a profit (however small) that's a VERY good position to be in!

04:34

26.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a sell trade on EURUSD after better than expected data from the US. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and why I decided to close the trade after an hour for a profit of approximately 5 pips. This trade example shows that not every trade will hit a home run and if after an hour after news the trade hasn't even reached half way to your profit objective, its a warning sign to say the market has not reacted as you would expect. On these occasions it's best to cut the trade which in this case was for a small profit.

05:13

27.08.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a buy trade on USDJPY and a sell trade on EURUSD after better than expected GDP data from the US. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plans/ideas, execution and why I decided to close the trades early for a net trade outcome of approximately 45 pips.

04:19

In this trade example you will learn about the trading plans/ideas, execution and why I decided to close the trades for a net trade outcome of approximately 90 pips in only 9 minutes.

06:03

04.09.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a SELL trade on EURUSD after the recent NFP employment data from the USA. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plans/ideas, more aggressive execution than normal and why I decided to close the trades for a net trade outcome of approximately 9pips.

04:55

09.09.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a SELL trade on NZDUSD and a BUY trade on GBPNZD after the recent rate cut and bearish central bank comments from New Zealand. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plans/ideas, execution and why I decided to close the trades for a net trade outcome of approximately +45pips. Note that due to my screen recording software playing up I was unable to record the original trades, directly after the news, which generated a net return of +160pips.

03:45

10.09.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a BUY trade on AUDNZD after recent positive data from Australia and negative comments from NZ. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and why I decided to close the trades for a net trade outcome of approximately +20pips. A slightly different approach in regards to not taking the trade directly after news but still utilising powerful concepts taught in the course.

05:36

16.09.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a slightly more aggressive SELL trade on EURGBP after recent positive data from the UK and further negative comments from Europe. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and why I decided to close the trade quicker than usual for a profit of approximately +20pips.

07:47

23.09.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a SELL trade on NZDUSD and AUDUSD in light of weak Chinese data overnight. These trade example takes a different approach to usual by not entering live directly after news, instead using technical analysis to trade into fundamentally weak currency pairs. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plans/ideas, execution and why I decided to close the trades for a net trade outcome of approximately 70 pips in several hours. Technicals used solely on their own can be highly inconsistent however when combined with the fundamentals they are extremely powerful and these trade examples illustrate exactly that - combining the fundamentals (for currency selection and direction) and the technicals (for efficient entry and exit levels) for maximum effect.

02:41

25.09.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a BUY trade on USDJPY after recent positive data from the US. In this trade example you will learn about the trading plan/idea, execution and why I decided to close the trade for break even after a very lethargic response to the data. Confirmation that not every event is going to create a huge move and when we see a very limited reaction we can make the decision to cut the trade to take risk off the table.

04:19

01.10.2015 Live trade example showcasing WHY I took a BUY trade on GBPJPY and a SELL trade on EURGBP after better than expected UK manufacturing data and WHY I decided to close the trade out earlier than normal for a small profit.

The two trades together resulted in a net return of around breakeven.

This approach of leaving the good trades to run and cutting the bad trades quickly is a key component to generating a profit at the end of the month.
