Episode 1: The Best Tools for Forex Trading



Episode Summary: Review the best and most essential Forex trading tools.


Episode Notes:


Economic Calendar: A simple calendar is available at Forex Factory. For more experienced traders, I suggest the economic calendar at Trading Economics.


PIP Calculator: I use this one from XM. You will need a PIP calculator if you have a position size feature available on your trading platform.


Charting Software: Your ultimate choice is TradingView. It is also available as a mobile app. If you dislike TradingView, MetaTrader 4 may be your next best option.


Something to take Notes on—either a desk notepad or note-taking software. I use a desk pad like this.


Performance Tracking Software: Myfxbook and Forex Factory offer free performance tracking software. Alternatively, you can use Excel (or similar) to create results tables and equity curves. I also use Excel to track critical economic data, such as interest and inflation rates.


Recommended Book: 'Come into My Trading Room' by Dr. Alexander Elder.


Answered Questions: How much do you need to start trading? What is the best advice for new traders?

Interest rates drive the currency markets.

Unemployment rates, PMI figures, retail sales, GBP growth - These figures indicate the economic health of a country

Episode 3: Using Price Action



Episode Summary: How to use price action to trade Forex


Episode Notes:


Price action can identify market direction and where to enter and exit trades.


Focus on significant swings. They provide more precise trend direction and more rewarding support and resistance zones.

When using swings to identify trends, use swings with unique chart space.

Consecutive swings of similar height or depth can signal potential reversal or consolidation.

Price action setups trigger a trade, but they are not the reason to enter or exit a trade.
