    Price action basics. Part 1

    Hi, traders.

    In series of posts, I will try to uncover underlying reasons that drive the market.

    Trading the market, you want to see something beyond candlestick charts, and you want to see - guess what? You want to see people, traders with their interests, fears and desires. Like one wise man said, "discover what makes people tick, and you will know what makes market tick"



    1. Where are you trading?



    First of all, there is a significant difference between stock market and markets that trade with leverage. Forex is one on those markets (but not the only one - there are futures, options, OTC derivatives and so on).

    Nature of retail Forex market is that real currency rarely trades here. We trade obligations (for example, we take responsibility to buy some currency after the trade, and deposite some money fot that. If we are mistaken, we give some money to the market, if we are right - we take some money from the market).

    Numerous obligations (traders from retail traders) meet together and form a huge whole position, that liquidity provider must cover using other liquidity provider. That's how it works.


    ! The process of exchanging obligations is somewhat different from exchanging real goods.


    Imagine you're trading a stock. Quantity of stocks is limited, and to go short you must borrow some stocks from its' owner. If you want to close your long position, you expect somebody to sell it (real stock). And that's why we have "short interest" on the stock market, it usually doesn't exceed 5% of the whole volume.

    Attachment 766

    Things are different on Forex and futures. You can sell almost unlimited number of contracts, so you don't need to borrow something from somebody. That circumstance makes analysis of supply and demand on Forex pretty different than on stock market.

    We can see big supply, but suddenly market reverses and all those short sellers start covering. Why? Because they need to do it - they have small pockets and should exit quickly otherwise they can blow up their accounts.

    The same is with long positions - there are lots of weak holders, that have very close "pain point" - they go long, place very close stop and if they have no defense from "strong holders", market will probaly go after their stops, because there is always strong counterparty that can hold the level and prevent price from further rising (remember - they can place as many "sell limit" orders as they want)

    Attachment 767



    ! Trading on Forex market is really the Art of analysing underlying inventory.



    To start successfully find good trades, we should answer these questions from small check-list:



    1. Who is responsible for price action? Strong holders or weak holders? (price will go in the favor of strong holder)

    2. Is market oversold or overbought on the way up? (in the first case we have weak short sellers, in the second - weak long bueyrs)

    3. Is market oversold or overbought on the way down? (in the first case we have weak short sellers, in the second - weak long buyers)



    Remember, there are not only situations when we have "win-lose" situation and "strong-weak" market configuration, we can also have "strong-strong" market configuration, when market is careless about retail traders and their positions (this is when we have elongated trends).

    As a trader, you should know how to read inventory and to play on the strong side.


    to be continued....

    Not everyone can muster the courage to take a bold decision the first time and be confident about its success. What about you? Do you make a lot of right decisions every day? How do they turn out to be? Have you ever thought about the success of all your Right decision making?

    The difference lies not only in the meaning of the two words, but in many other things first of all, forex has very few alternatives compared to the stock exchange, which has thousands of them.
    But what distinguishes Forex is that it works 24 hours a day, five days a week.
    The stock exchange operates only for hours and depends on the country in which it is traded.
    On the stock exchange currency payment is necessary for intermediary companies to carry out the matters of buying and selling while forex is paid in the form of spreads and this is better
    The stock market is not fixed and you find it a constantly falling bullish and profit is the time of the ascent you will buy and profit at the time of the fall = loss
    There is transparency in Forex so you can see the news and data to see the progress of the spouse you will trade on. It is the opposite of a stock exchange that hides information, which may leak, which is considered to be a lack of credibility.
    Buy and sell in Forex at the push of a button while the stock exchange there are complications and overlaps before buying and selling.
    Liquidity in the exchange restricts the work while liquidity in Forex is huge makes the arrival of money instant to the client these are the most differences between the stock exchange and forex
