How to Trade without Leverage

Author:Victor Gryazin

roboforex-header.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

In this overview, I will speak about trading without leverage so that you could decide whether this type of trading suits you.

What is leverage?

Trading with leverage means that you open a position for a lager sum than you have on your deposit via marginal crediting. In essence, leverage is the ratio of your capital and borrowed money. In financial markets, leverage is provided by your broker; normally it starts from 1:10.

Using leverage, traders with small deposits can open rather large positions in financial markets. For example, owning a deposit of 1,000 USD, a trader can use leverage of 1:100 (provided by their broker) and open positions for 100,000 USD total (1,000 USD * 100).

On the one hand, trading with leverage lets the trader increase their potential profit; n the other hand, it also increases possible risks. Conversely, trading without leverage means lower risks but requires a larger deposit.

Trading in Forex without leverage

As a rule, trading in Forex means quite high leverage (starting 1:100). This is explained by currency pairs being instruments with low volatility, and traders compensate for this by increased trade volumes. However, using leverage is not obligatory; you can make a profit without it. This will require more investments, though.

Naturally, potential profitability will be lower when you trade without leverage than with it. If a currency has grown by 1%, and the trader bought it for the whole deposit with leverage of 1:100, their profit will be 100%, while without leverage, it would be just 1%. However, the use of leverage means maximum risk: if you get mistaken with your forecasts, you can lose the whole of your deposit in one trade.

Imagine a trader who has a deposit of 100 EUR and opens a maximally possible trader with leverage of 1:100, buying 0.1 lot of EUR/USD. If their forecast turns out to be wrong, and the price goes against their position, an average daily movement of 100 points in this pair (1 point = 1 euro) will destroy the whole of their deposit; they will have nothing to trade anymore.

To open the same position of 0.1 lot in EUR/USD without leverage, one needs to have 10,000 EUR. However, the same opposite movement of 100 points against the position will only mean a loss of 1% of the deposit (100 EUR). The trader will have 9,900 EUR left to trade, while in the first case, they will be left with nothing. If you trade without leverage, you risk losing your whole deposit only if your currency nears zero.

To trade in Forex without leverage, you need a reliable broker that provides leverage of 1:1. Choose your broker with all your diligence because your deposit will have to be substantial (starting 10,000 USD). Opening a trading account, alongside other parameters (trading terminal, type of account, currency), choose leverage of 1:1.

Advantages and drawbacks of no-leverage trading

The pluses and minuses of trading without leverage are as follows:

Advantages:
  • Smaller trading risks – the size of the deposit lets you trade with a good safety margin and withstand drawdowns waiting for your asset (stocks) to grow.
  • Psychological comfort – trading with a good safety margin, you take most price movements calmly and pay less attention to trading.
  • Less expenses as you pay no fees for overnight transferring of your positions.
Drawbacks:
  • A large deposit – no less than 10,000 USD is recommended.
  • Moderate profitability – significantly smaller than when trading with leverage.
Closing thoughts

It is up to each trader to decide whether to use leverage in trading or not. If you have enough money and prefer long-term trading with moderate risks, you will be comfortable trading without leverage. Choose your broker wisely and open a trading account with leverage of 1:1.

How to Trade by the Two Fingers Strategy?

Author: Victor Gryazin

roboforex-header.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

In this overview, I will present a simple but popular strategy called Two Fingers. The idea of the strategy is to find signals of the main market trend after a correction.

How does the strategy work?

Two Fingers can be called a medium-term strategy: it takes several days for signals to form and work. As long as it is very simple, it suits any currency pair.

The main idea of the strategy is to find a strong market trend and open a position in a correction. Look for a trend on D1 and for entry points — after a correction on a smaller H4 timeframe.

Two Fingers is an indicator strategy. To find the trend and signals, the strategy uses 4 indicators:
  • Moving Average (22)
  • Moving Average (5)
  • Bill Williams's Fractals
  • OsMA
Installing the indicators by the strategy

The indicators used in the strategy are standard and available in basic MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5. Open and install the indicators via the Main menu: Insert/Indicators.

To trade by Two Fingers install four indicators on the chart of your instrument:
  • MA 1: period 5, method: Simple, apply to: Close, style: choose red.
  • MA 2: period 22, method: Simple, apply to: Close, style: choose blue.
  • Fractals by Bill Williams.
  • OsMA with the following parameters: fast EMA: 12, slow EMA: 26, MACD SMA: 9.
To avoid repeating the whole process each time you start trading, you can save this set of indicators in MT4 and MT5 as a template. Right-click the window with the indicators and choose Template/Save template/Two fingers.

Examples of trading by Two Fingers

Let me show you several examples of buying and selling by the strategy:

A buying trade
  • On D1 of USD/JPY there is an uptrend. The red MA(5) is above the blue MA(22).
  • On D1, an upper Williams's Fractal has formed.
  • Draw a horizontal level through the high of the second candlestick after the fractal icon (104.50).

Bottom line

Two Fingers is a trend strategy; it is based on trading the trend after a correction. This is a medium-term strategy which signals appear and work during several days. Reagrdless its rules being so clear, test it on a demo account and make sure it works well.

How to Trade by USD/CHF?

Author: Victor Gryazin

roboforex-header.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

USD/CHF – the US dollar against Swiss franc – is one of the majors in Forex. In this overview, we will discuss some factors influencing the quotations of USD/CHF as well as learn some ways of trading the pair.

Some history

The history of the Swiss franc starts in the 1700s. At those times, in Switzerland, there were numerous coins in circulation, including foreign ones. Aiming at creating a unified currency, the Swiss government introduced the franc all over the country. The state monetary and credit policy is carried out by the National bank of Switzerland.

Throughout history, the Swiss franc has been some sort of a safe-haven currency. Historically, it had almost zero inflation, moreover, Switzerland legally secured gold reserves behind the national currency. This measure, however, was canceled in 2000 through certain changes in Swiss constitution.

Thanks to a flexible exchange rate and sustained development of the economy, the Swiss franc remains one of the most stable currencies in the world and enjoys active demand as a protective asset. The trust of international investors is the reason for the growth of the franc against other national currencies.

How to trade USD/CHF?

For USD/CHF, various methods and approaches can be used depending on your preferences. You can use fundamental factors, tech analysis, and indicator strategies.

Trading fundamental factors

One way is to trade using fundamental factors and events. This might be short-term trading on news or long-term trading on expectations of changes in interest rates or during some world crises.

Example:

Using the property of the Swiss franc to act as a protective asset in different crises, you can sell USD/CHF (buying the franc against the dollar) when investors flee for safe-haven assets. After the beginning of the pandemic of COVID-19 in 2020, USD/CHF quotations fell from 0.9850 to 0.9200 during a couple of days.

Examples of trading by Two Fingers

Bottom line

USD/CHF is a popular pair in the Forex market. Thanks to its liquidity, availability, and the minimal spread it is so loved by traders. You can trade it based on fundamental factors, tech analysis, or indicator strategies.

Beginner traders should start practicing on a demo account and switch to a real one only after they get a stable positive result. To trade successfully, you need to be disciplined and stick to your risk management rules.

Financial Indices of Companies: Guide for Beginners

Author: Maks Artemov

roboforex-header.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

Trading in financial markets, especially in the stock market, having information about financial indices of companies might be extremely useful. Not only beginners but also “market whales” use financial reports for market analysis.

If you have just started trading, try studying data and indicators of companies for reporting periods. Normally, companies give reports for a quarter, 6 months, and a year. Trading intraday, you may neglect those, but in medium-term and long-term investments, financial indicators and reports become influential.

See below such indices discussed in detail, including how they can influence your choice of stocks for investments.

Price/Earnings

Price/Earnings (or P/E) is a multiplier that demonstrates the ratio between the stock price and the yearly return on it. By P/E, the investor evaluates how long it will take for their investment to pay off.
  • P/E lets you choose a company with overvalued or undervalued shares;
  • Low P/E means that your investment will pay off soon;
  • It is only applicable to companies that make a profit.
Price/Cash Flow

P/CF is the ratio of the asset’s price and the company’s cash flow with regard to depreciation costs, capital expenditures, and the working capital. It is calculated by dividing the market capitalization of the company by the cash flow from completed market operations.

P/CF is traditionally evaluated as follows:
  • P/CF above 20 means that the company is in trouble;
  • P/CF between 15 and 20 is good;
  • P/CF below 15 means that the company is in a perfect shape.
Price-to-Book

P/B or P/BV (Price-to-Book Value) shows the price of the company’s assets that can be sold if the company goes bankrupt minus its commitments (debts, expenses). This coefficient is a stock multiplier that shows whether the company is attractive for investments or whether its stocks are overvalued it the market. Undervalued shares have a chance to grow.
