RoboForex adds the netting position accounting system to R Trader



Dear Clients and Partners,

RoboForex has added the netting position accounting system to R Trader terminal. Earlier, the platform offered the hedging accounting system only.

From now on, you can choose a more preferable accounting system when opening a new R Trader account.

What is the difference between Netting and Hedging?

Netting is a classic position accounting system, which allows you to have only one position in the same instrument in any direction.

The hedging system allows to open multiple positions in the same instrument in different directions.


To find out what accounting system your account has, check the account list in R Trader terminal or in the account card in your Members Area.


Sincerely,
RoboForex team

Top 10 Forex Indicators That Every Trader Needs

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Traders,

Indicators have long been introduced to the trading systems of many traders. As a minimum, they are of good help in chart analysis, as a maximum, they are the base of the whole trading system. Algorithmic trading, which means automatizing the work and creating trading robots, is also mostly based on the signals of various indicators.

In this article, we will review the ten most popular indicators for the analysis of and trading on financial markets.

Moving Average

It will hardly be too bold to say that the Moving Average is the queen of all indicators, as it is among the simplest and the most popular ones. Apart from the immediate use, it serves as the base for some more complicated indicators.

The Moving Average is the average price indicator for a certain period. There are several types of Moving Averages: the simple, exponential, smoothed, linear weighted ones. They are slightly different in terms of calculating but their essence remains the same: they demonstrate the dynamics of the averaged price during a certain period.

A Moving Average is represented as a line directly on the price chart. It shows the direction of the trend well: a declining MA indicates a downtrend, while a growing MA means an uptrend. To get trading signals, we normally use two or more Mas for different periods.



Fibonacci The indicator is based on the well-known sequence of numbers of an Italian mathematician Fibonacci (Leonardo of Pisa). It uses the relations of the numbers in the sequence...

Signals on Forex: Where to Search, How to Find, Filter, and Create

Author: Dmitriy Gurkovskiy



Dear Traders,

What is a signal on Forex?

If we try to describe briefly how a newcomer starts trading, the scenario of the market entry will be more or less the same. First, they study general information about markets, their laws of pricing; then the beginner trader gets acquainted with the trading platform and the work with orders in practice, and then they dive into the world of analysis and trading systems.

At this stage, they have to choose their paradigm, style, the viewpoint for their future work on the market. There are two main paradigms: the Stochastic (which includes forecasting, foretelling, or guessing the price direction) and algorithmic (which includes trading along with an algorithm and money management) ones.

Whatever the side the beginner takes, they will inevitably have to find certain patterns of market behavior signals for situation changes, as well as to make trading decisions. Thus, we may see that the basis of any trading model is the signal.

On Forex, under a signal, we mean a complex of circumstances, indicators, and events that show the trader in which direction they should open a trade, in other words, whether they should buy or sell.

n each paradigm, signals form and look different but many people mix them up. The Stochastic paradigm is based on statistical and fundamental data. In other words, it tries to answer a general question: “Which way: up or down?”, ignoring more detailed ones, such as: “Up or down to which level?”, “Where to put an SL?”, “What is the lifespan of the supposed movement?”, or “What to do after the SL?”.

The algorithmic paradigm, on the contrary, tries to define the level, on which a trade is worth opening, and the levels of the Take Profit and Stop Loss. We can even find the answer, though not very exact, to the hardest question about the perspectives of the movement.

Where to find signals? Signal types

Lagging signals

Before discussing where to find signals for trading, we should find out how they form. Let us have a look at a classical example of two Moving Averages crossing.



In this example, we may see that the signal from the technical indicators forms on the chart after the reversal of the trend. Such a signal can be called lagging because it is preceded by a serious change of price dynamics.

For an earlier signal, the timeframe and the number of candlesticks should be in line. This means that on a longer timeframe a smaller amount of candlesticks is better analyzed.

How to Buy Apple, Uber, Facebook Stocks from a Broker: Simple Guide

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Traders,

A stock is a security representing a share of the company that has issued it. Stocks give their owner (the stockholder) the right for a share of the company's income in the form of dividends; the right to participate in managing the company; the right for a part of the company's property in the case of its liquidation.

Why we buy stocks?

Stocks are one of the most popular investment instruments. Apart from the small dividend income, they also allow the owner to make money on the changes in their price. If the company is developing and the economic situation is good, the stock will be growing in price, bringing a decent income to its owner.

Stocks are normally bought on the stock market via a broker. A broker is a company, a professional market player, that is licensed to make operations on the stock market for its clients. At a broker, the client opens a trading account where they buy and sell stocks.

How much can be earned on the stock growth?

For successful investing, you should learn to evaluate the perspectives of the company the stocks of which you are going to buy. For this, there exist certain economic indicators, which the companies publish in their regular reports. Also, the overall political and economic situation in the world is to be assessed whether stock markets are growing or correcting.

As an example, let us take buying of the stocks of a world-famous company Apple. The corporation regularly demonstrates good economic results, and its stocks have been growing stably for years.



This January, the stocks were trading at $150.00 per stock. Today, the price is $266.70. So, this year the growth has been around $117 per stock. In percent, the result is even more impressing: if we had bought the stocks in January, the profit by now would have been 78%! Plus, some dividends.

Copy trading: What Is It? Comparing PAMM and RAMM

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Traders,

In this review, we will get acquainted with a popular way of trading that allows you to earn on copying the trades of professional traders, which is called copy trading. It suits those who are not ready to devote themselves to trading fully but who want to make a profit using the experience of successful managers.

What is copy trading? How to make money on it?



Copy trading is one of the ways of investing that implies copying on your account the trades of experienced traders. The mechanism is quite simple and easy to master.

First thing, you need to make up your mind about the service you will be using. Most services are based on well-known broker companies. In the article “How to Choose your Broker: Guide for Beginner Trader” you can find the criteria for deciding upon the company.

Upon registering in the chosen system, you need to study trading in detail and choose one or more trustworthy traders and launch copying their trades on your account. You also must set the parameters of copying, limit the risks and specify the fee for the manager.

You must choose the trader with great accuracy. Make sure they have a good trading history (the longer, the better), the profit level satisfies you, the maximal drawdown is acceptable, and the deposit increase is stable. To diversify risks, you can join several successful managers with different strategies.

Later, you will be able to follow the copying of trades to your account in real-time. If with trading your deposit grows, congratulations: you have made the right choice. If the balance shrinks, and the statistics of the trader’s work worsens, you will have to think about changing the trader.

Crypto Market Is Ready to Burst in 2020

Author: Anna Rostova



Dear Traders,

2020 for the crypto market is a time of a quality breakout, or at least this is what the users and market participants are expecting. Below, we will discuss some of the expected events and changes.

What will happen to the Bitcoin (BTC)?



The year 2020 will be crucial for the leading cryptocurrency. In May, the reward for mining will be decreased by 50% at once, amounting to 6.25 BTC instead of 12.5 BTC now per mined verified block. This event can change the whole picture of mining.

In 202, the BTC will go on spreading among users. Its market share will amount to 60-70%, which will make it stronger and more expensive. In our case, this is a positive factor for the BTC price.

Another supporting driver of the BTC price is the extension of the Lightning Network system. This system optimizes the decentralization process, letting introduce it in applications and the principles of payment execution. Automatically, this will free the Bitcoin from the long-time market claim that the BTC has no more room for development.

Forecasting the BTC price for a year is useless: the market is too volatile and prone to fluctuations. However, it must remain between $7,500-$15,000.

Libra: how will it settle?



In 2019, Facebook caused a lot of worries to the crypto world, but its crypto project was not launched after all. No one is sure that in 2020 Libra will appear on the crypto market, because Facebook is aiming, in fact, at rivalry with the US dollar. The US government got scared and hindered the launching process.

In the first half of 2020, Facebook will discuss the future of Libra with the regulator. The project will function if the government allows it. The potential of the project is huge, so the caution of the politicians and the greed of the users is understandable. Libra is a new phenomenon on the crypto market, and its appearance may be earthshaking.

Trader's Checklist for Successful Trading

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Traders,

For successful work on financial markets, it is important to collect a set of rules that will help think soberly in any situation and stick to one's trading system. Most often, traders draft a plan on paper for no steep movements on the market to make them turn away from their goal. What is more, experienced investors advise to make a sort of a checklist with several questions, the answers to which will show if the time is good for opening a position or the trade is better skipped.

Why should I plan my trading?

It has been proved in practice that most mistakes and losing positions emerge in situations when the trader tries to act intuitively and avoid stocking to their own rules.

For example, the trader has chosen the Head and Shoulders pattern for trading but it does not appear on the market for a long time, and they decide to enter a trade on a breakout of the support line. As long as they used to trade only one pattern, the trade might be compromised.

Of course, such a loss depends only on the trader and their devotedness to their rules. That is why planning and sticking to the plan is so important.

How to create the checklist?

For example, if we return to our Head and Shoulders pattern, we have several rules for the pattern to form.

The neck must head along with the movement, the right shoulder must be no higher than the left one, which will signify the weakness of the current trend. Then, we may pay attention to the fact of whether the pattern complies with the trend from D1; and finally, we must evaluate the risks for the deposit.

Based on the data above, we can create a checklist for trading Head and Shoulders patterns; the answers will help decide upon the fate of your open positions. You should remember that questions can be created for any system you work with.
