How to Trade in Forex during Crises?

Author: Maks Artemov

roboforex-header.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

In times of crises in the gloval or local economy, traders have only questions: how to trade and make money? Should one pay attention to currency pairs — or invest in protective assets, such as gold, right away? Which trading strategies to use?

Before answering these questions, let me remind you that Forex, unlike, other markets, always feature liquidity and volatility. If the stock market might be experiencing certain lull, currency pairs keep trading all the time, and in crises, they are almost always in trends (ascending or descending). However, even this rule has exceptions.

The next idea should neither be news to you: trading in crises, especially in a highly volatile market, implies increased risks. They will also be touched upon in this article.

And now let us look at some examples of how crises can influence currency prices and how we can use it in trading.

Types of crises and examples of trading

A crisis can emerge at the global level (the COVID-19 pandemic is a good example) as well as at the local one. One example of the latter type is natural disasters.

Such events cause damage to the infrastructure and people's homes, goods supply, transport, and manufacturing. As a rule, the country becomes unable to produce and export goods because it spend all of its resources on recovery.

In most cases, the country's national currency starts falling. This gives a chance to sell pairs containing this currency. However, the beginning of such falling, not to mention its end, is rather hard to predict. The currency might even not react to the natural disaster.

Let us look at the example of AUD/USD and GBP/USD during floods in Australia and Great Britain in March and June 2012. While the Australian dollar demonstrated a serious slump, the pound remained in a flat.

GBP/USD chart during the flood in England in June 2012

The movements of national currencies depend on the scale of the disaster and the country's readiness to cope with the consequences. As seen on the charts below, we cannot always evaluate these factors fully. It seems that in such circumstances, the only reliable strategy is scalping or intraday trading. However, sometimes in crises, the market allows to trade medium and long run. In the end, everything depends on the trader’s ability to assess the macroeconomic situation correctly.

As one example, take the debt crisis of Europe in 2009-2010. The trigger was the economic crisis in Greece, and market panic ragged the common European currency down. At that tie, the euro lost up to 20% of its price.

How to Become a Day Trader?

Author: Andrey Goilov

roboforex-header.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

Traders can be compared to drivers: some drive fast, while some move around in no hurry. Beginners face some engine malfunctions in the middle of traffic and freak out when having to drive at the countryside. Some enjoy driving at night while for others, such driving is a challenge.

There are as many trading options as driving experiences in the example above. Some trade intraday, some prefer week charts and wait for their trades for months, while stock investors can wait for their profit for years.

This article is devoted to day traders - those who try to squeeze all the juices out of the market over a short time.

Who is a day trader?

A day trader is a one who makes a lot of trades during the day to make maximum profit on short-term market fluctuations. As a rule, positions are held for several seconds to several hours but are always closed before the end of the day not to transfer risks to the night-time or non-working hours of the platform.

How to become a day trader?

Trading intraday needs knowledge, experience, emotional stability, and the ability to make decisions fast. All this can be acquired with time; however, do not rush at the market right after you learnt some tech analysis or got trained in trading psychology. Only all of these aspects taken together make any sense.

If you want to become a day trader, keep in mind the following:

Practical knowledge

You need an excellent understanding of tech analysis and all instruments used for analyzing graphic patterns, trade volume, and trend direction.

Among the most wide-spread indicators used by short-term traders, there are support/resistance levels, the MACD for divergences, the Moving Average, etc.

Some traders would use ready-made trading systems based on a combination of indicators, while others would trade graphic patterns on small timeframes; a separate category trades based on their experience and instinct.

Day trading: advantages and drawbacks

In the stock market, the advantage of short-term trading is the fact that positions are not influenced by the probability of negative night events that can disturb the price noticeably. Such news might be important profit and losses reports, as well as the information about an increase or decrease in the rating of information agencies. Such news normally emerge before the market opens or after it closes.

Trading currency pairs, the day trader is also insured from drastic price movements against them at night time, when news emerge. The trader's dream will be as calm as ever, and they will not rush at checking the terminal and their trades right upon waking up.

Bottom line

Day trading entails increased psychological load that, however, decreases with time. To be always with a profit, a day trader needs to make a lot of trades every day and trail a lot of trading instruments, have deep knowledge of tech analysis and make trading decisions fast.

Day trading is not a path for beginners, but neither it is an unachievable elite group. Follow its principles, practice on demo accounts, train your psychological stability, and you will succeed.

How to Trade AUD/USD Currency Pair?

Author: Victor Gryazin

roboforex-header.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

AUD/USD means the Australian dollar vs the US dollar. It is one of For example majors. This article is devoted to factors influencing the dynamics of AUD/USD quotations and get to know trading methods that suit the pair.

Some history

Australia is a young land discovered by European sailors in the 1600-1700s. In 1770, an English sailor and traveller James Cook research Australia, thus beginning it's colonization by Britain. The first British colony on the continent New South Wales was founded on January 26th, 1788. This day later became a national holiday, the Australia Day.

The Australian dollar, a decimal currency, went in circulation on February 14th, 1966, replacing the duodecimal Australian pound. The introduction of a new national currency was initiated by the CB - the Reserve Bank of Australia. The colloquial words for the AUD are Aussie and the Australian.

The Australian dollar is a popular currency that makes up for 5% of global currency trades. Such popularity can be explained by a rather high interest rate in Australia, free currency market, general stability of the economy and political system.

Trading characteristics of AUD/USD

Trading characteristics of the pair are as follows:
  • Trading time: the pair trades all day long except weekend but is more active during the Pacific, Asian, and American trading sessions. At the Pacific and Asian sessions Australia publishes important economic news that can influence the pair, while the activity at the American session is explained by the influence of the USD.
  • The volatility of the pair is moderate, mostly showing moves of 50 to 70 points. However, in crises, when stock markets are falling, volatility can increase shortly to 100-200 points a day.
  • Spread: the pair is a popular major, and thanks to high demand and liquidity, it has minimal spread. On popular ECN accounts, spread is normally below 1 point.
Which factors influence the AUD/USD quotations?

The dynamics of AUD/USD is some kind of an indicator that compares the US and Australian economies. Here are the facts that have the most influence in the currency pair.

Monetary policies of the RBA and Fed

The policies of the Australian and American Central banks have the biggest influence over the pair. If the RBA decides to start a series of interest rate increases, while the Fed will keep the rate at its usual level, the AUD/USD will have a stimulus to grow. And vice versa: an increase in the rates made by the Fed and the lack of such an increase at the Australian side starts a downtrend in the quotations.
