Metatrader vs Amibroker vs Metastock


I am a stockcharts.com user and looking to step up to the next level. I am interested in analyzing more historical end of day data. Which would be better for me to back test market indicators........, Amibroker or Metastock or Metatrader?... I don't need steaming data. Plusses would be ease of use, more pre-built indicators, and more economical. (If any software had pre-built breadth indicators such as the percent of stocks in sp500 above their 200 day moving average, that would be helpful too.)

Thank you - Joel

T2W traders,

I have summarized some of my comments and observations on trading the Eurostyle binary options from the Home Trader/ Home-Based Trading Career Pathway & Journey thread (combined posts #70, #71).

I thought if any T2W trader is interested in Eurostyle At-The-Money (ATM) binary trading, it is much easier to organize and post it here. So - again - here is a summary of my journey w Eurostyle binary trading thus far:

The Eurostyle binaries are much easier to trade and apply compared to the Nadex binary options on a relative basis. These options are all At-The-Money (ATM) at the time of entry. There is no need to calculate expected volatility movement in the expiry period to see if and OTM strike price is going to become ITM. :thumbsup:

There are Turbo expiries as low as 30-secs, 60-secs, 2 mins, and 5 mins. These Turbo binaries have the big disadvantage of payouts of about 70%. Win $0.70 per Risk of $1.00. Because of this low payout, it is essential to have a winning accuracy of > 60%. :thumbsdow :whistling

Euro binaries also have expiries at 15mins, 30mins, (60 mins also). These have better payouts - up to 80% to 85% to 95% for the most liquid assets like EURUSD in the most liquid trading period (like during overlap of London & NY sessions).

Still - with Euro binaries - due to its lower than 100% payout and short-term expiry - there is effectively little chance to hedge or lock up profits. Hence trading Euro binaries require a trading system that is highly focused on explosive directional momentum trades that carry thru the expiry time period. :idea:

The primary advantage of Eurostyle binaries is the ease to enter into short-term opportunities in the 5min to 30min time frames. If there is a strong primary 5-min price trend/momentum bullish run, for example, then it is easy to just execute Eurostyle binary call options every 5 minutes (and matched with 5-min expiry) all the way up the price trend/momentum. Intermittent losing trades can easily be made back on the next 5-min expiry as long as the 5-min price trend/momentum remains powerfully in motion.

More to follow soon...

T2W traders,

I have summarized some of my comments and observations on trading the Nadex binary options (only for US residents) from the Home Trader/ Home-Based Trading Career Pathway & Journey thread (combined posts #70, #71).

I thought if any T2W trader is interested in Nadex binary trading, it is much easier to organize and post it here. So - again - here is a summary of my journey w Nadex binary trading thus far:

The Nadex binaries are available for US residents only. The Nadex binaries offer fantastic and plentiful opportunities to trade Out-of-The-Money (OTM) strikes that can become In-The-Money (ITM) at expiry. This feature allows traders to be able to trade Nadex binary options where we can achieve Reward/Risk profiles better than 1:1. :thumbsup:

Nadex binaries have Daily and Wkly expiries - so I am very familiar with the volatility effects of the various OTM strikes. In addition Nadex binaries allow the trader to be able to exit at anytime desired - and at "fair" prices. Liquidity is also very good. :clap:

Nadex offers 2-hr expiry binaries also during the NY trading session. These are great for me to trade against 30min to 2hr trends and breakouts while achieving Reward/Risk profiles > 1:1. There are 2-hr forex binary options available for overnight sessions like the Asian or London sessions (I am based on NY time).

The properties of Nadex binaries are much more similar to the listed weekly options on the CBOE that I trade heavily with. And with Nadex - winning positions can be partially hedged quickly to lock up profit windows.

Nadex disadvantage: no short-term binary expiries for < 60 mins. Nadex trading usually means trading on Hourly or 2-Hr price trend/momentum charts. :thumbsdow

Funds deposited into Nadex accounts are regulated by the CFTC - and client funds are segregated. Nadex is not permitted to use deposit funds for their operating leverage or for trading on their behalf. Withdrawal is easy and quick - funds deposited back to client bank accounts within 3-5 trading days. :thumbsup:

However - I recommend routine scheduled withdrawals of profits every 4-5 weeks to test and train the Nadex team to meet my trading Standards. Never hesitate to test frequently any/all brokerage firms you use! Even if they "pass" routinely - make it a risk-management "habit" and Standard to test continually and regularly. :idea:

Nadex offers an excellent portfolio of binary assets - indices, commodities, currencies. Their trading platform is well-organized, easy to learn, and the real-time execution and price fills/feedback are quick and seamless. :thumbsup:

Nadex offers a demo platform - it is recommended that interested T2W traders first apply and then learn and practice trade execution with the Nadex demo platform.

The initial account funding is very low - something like $100 USD. Usually the minimum trade size is anywhere from $20 to $60 per lot per trade.

In summary - Nadex binary options trading is an attractive professional-level trading platform for US-based traders. In the near future, I will begin to post my Nadex campaigns here - but not every trading day. There will be way too many Nadex binary setups and trades being executed. I will post Nadex trades that have key Lessons Learned for all traders. :smart:

Thank you.

Hi All,

I've been trading Forex for the last two years and overall I have lost quite a bit of money. I would like to continue Forex Trading but would also like to look into US Equity trading and understand Value Investing.

So I have two questions,

I would like to know if anyone can show me some good long term strategies for the Forex Market and I would also like to know where I can find information on Value Investing and learning to trade US Equities (Long Term)

I look forward to hearing your response.

Do you really know yourself?

You may think you are fairly calm and relaxed and can handle problems - whereas you partner may see the other side - ie the road rage - unwillingness to accept when you are wrong - constantly worrying about small matters etc - short attention span etc etc.

Have you ever been able to change something in your life ?

Have you managed to loss weight say 10 yrs ago and kept it off ? - given up smoking for over 3 yrs ? Changed career and gone on to greater success ?

Have you done a SWOT analysis on yourself recently ie Strengths , Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats etc?

All what I have mentioned above are important if you want to succeed in trading and making money.

So many people enter into trading and really should not even bother. They just don't have the disciplines, the commitments, the work ethic. patience , correct mindset etc - and so they are doomed even before they start.

They might be excellent for working in other professions - but in the cut throat deceitful world of say Forex Trading - they are just going to get beat up and waste their time.

The type of mentality I think is important is as follows -

a) - Dont trust anyone but have an open mind - and never accept anything you are told without finding out yourself

b) - If you suffer with road rage and general anger - forget it - you will end up beating yourself up all the while on your trading journey. Every single person gets angry in life - but you need to be in full control of your emotions

c) - Brains - you do need them - NO you dont need to be a member of Mensa or have a First class Degree in Maths - but you need an active inquisitive brain that works well under pressure and stress . Also it helps if you are streetwise and maybe have read the "art of war" a few times

d) Can you accept that the only real "trading set up" - is the one being played out on you ? ie you are being set up - you are being deceived by charts and all the fundamental stuff you will read - you are facing false set ups - manipulation and wrong sentiment - and therefore you will lose money and be wrong

e) Can you problem solve ?

f) What are you like under pressure - ie real pressure - when you have to make a decision in minutes ?

g) Are you resilient ? Are you able to just keep going after loads of set backs?

h) Are you generally confident - satisfied that you are not the best at everything in the world - but far from being the worst ?

i) Are you presently stable in your personal life? - having money worries is normal worrying about not having a six pack and the size of your manhood is all normal for young guys - but if you have major personal issues giving you stress - sort them out first - don't compound them trying to make money learning to trade

OK - that's enough for now. Be honest with yourself - are you up for it ?

Can you now see without even looking at charts, economics, money management etc etc why most wannabe traders fail before they even start ?

You really do need a tough mindset to be a successful trader. Like anything in life - you can learn to adapt and change - but it will take time and lots of effort

Don't kid yourself - find out all your weaknesses - learn to control and conquer them - and then besides being a better trader - you might even be a better person :)

Its only my opinion and many might disagree - love to think whether you agree or not ?

I've managed to get myself a job interview at a Forex-Broker firm in London :D (buzzing!), but at the same time I'm nervous/excited and want to go there as prepared and ready as I can. I'm applying to be a junior/trainee salesmen doing outbound calls to potential clients/customers, eventually having the chance to move up to become a broker. I'm just posting in hope that there's people on here who can help me and either give me some good advice, or point me in the right direction...

I've been asked to do a short presentation, as well as an interview.

The presentation will be on: “How the company helps organisations in managing their forex exposure and my knowledge on the forex market.”

I mainly need help on the presentation part as this is totally new to me and I have no experience in this type of thing...

What are the key things to research and mention?
What are they looking to hear?
What sort of questions/objections will they likely challenge me with?
What key points should I address?

If anybody has got any interview questions they were asked, or what they think are likely to be asked (forex based and company based) please share them, so I can get ready on them. I would really appreciate that.

Thanks for taking your time out to read this guys, I have faith and I'm hoping I get some good advice so I can smash this interview.

I'll let you know how it goes after, thanks again.

Inflation risks in the world economy could be ratcheting up, despite the winding down of the US Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing programme posing a new dilemma for central banks, which could have a considerable impact on forex markets.

A resurgence of inflation would hit GBP and USD, but would likely be positive for emerging market currencies closely tied to commodity prices.

Quantitative easing was designed to re-inflate economies and stimulate demand. So far the inflation impact has been muted, at least in the real economy. But there is a danger this could change.

A classic path towards inflation involves the creation of lots of new money and the first signs of inflation usually turn up in soaring stock markets, which has already happened. As confidence increases the next phases show up in the real economy.

Property markets are always a favourite as banks feel comfortable lending against this kind of asset. From there the money starts to trickle into other areas of the real economy. In the UK the property market is already very buoyant though that's not quite the case in the US. But that could change.

Gold – could inflation hedges become popular again?

The inflation cycle
Once inflation becomes well established it is widely reflected in fast rising prices of retail goods and wages.

Retail prices would rise given the commodities from which consumer items are made could soar in value. Indeed, a correction in the stock market could see investors shift their money to property and commodities reigniting not only fears over inflation, but also a re-occurrence of property bubbles followed by crashes.

A particular issue for the UK and to a lesser extent the US is the amount of indebtedness of consumers and the state. The Bank of England admitted there could be limits to the scope of increasing interest rates due to high personal debts.

That would suggest that relatively high rates of inflation could be tolerated for fear of bankrupting too many borrowers. If that happened then GBP and USD would see their values steadily eroded away on forex markets. The best policy for the UK and US central banks could be to raise interest rates sooner rather than later, which should negate the need to raise them to particularly high levels.

On the other hand there are a number of significant inflation dampeners:

Banks are still scarred by the financial crisis and are having to hold higher reserves. Policy makers, even in the UK, are much more focussed on property bubbles and are more prepared to use macro-prudential tools to stop them getting out of hand.

Wages in most of the developed world are under pressure due to the effects of globalisation, digitisation and the fact that companies are keen to trim workforces even when profits are rising.

Another issue are ageing populations, which could also dampen consumption and are likely to shift it more towards services and away from goods.

It's still difficult to tell if inflation will take off again, but central banks have created an enormous amount of new liquidity since the financial crisis. If economies really are normalising again all that extra money could come into play with a vengeance and create a whole new set of dilemmas for policy makers.

Say I buy an OTM option at .50 and a few days later it increases to .65 but is still out of the money. Can I sell the option to close the position and take the $15 profit minus commission or do I have to wait until the the option is in the money?

So i use Fibo multiples.. 127.2%, 161.8%, 200%, 261.8% etc to project a Wave 5 end point.

How would i know which one is most probable?
