    Price Action - not quite what it seems?

    I'm interested in people's views on this observation relating to Price Action. As someone who follows PA closely it's became more apparent to me that a lot of price action is following market sentiment rather than support resistance etc. So for example I'll often be following a particular...

    Article Divergence at Turning Points

Profit taken at +30 pips with first lot, still in trade with second lot with SL at entry of 5630. Monday and...

    Learning to trade from scratch.

    Entry for AUDUSD Hi Greg, Would be interested in how you would play a possible long on the AUDUSD, which has been trending nicely on the daily and is now at the bottom of the channel. Looking at the hourly chart seems to be showing a bullish engulfing bar off of a minor support level, what do...

    Central London Traders

    I'm fine with Canary Wharf, will PM my details. I'm not a regular poster on here, but have been trading for 5 years. I've recently taken redundancy and am hoping to trade for a living come mid-October, so looking forward to meeting up with other full time traders! All the best, Paul.

    Article What Style of Trader Am I?

    I thought it a very good article. As someone who has recently moved from Swing Trading to Day Trading (in preparation for my imminent redundancy!) it validated many of my beliefs on the differences and merits of the two approaches. My only suggestion for the article would be if he could have...
