Each month, Currency Trader magazine brings you the best strategies, analysis, news and trading resources for the global forex market. Among the features covered in every issue:
Trading strategies and systems
The best source for technical, fundamental and quantitative approaches of trading strategies and systems. We also focus on the all-important issues of risk control and money management.
Trading Strategy articles discuss both the why and the how - the logic behind a trading approach, not just the rules to execute it. Strategies are spelled out so you can research and test them yourself, with programming code for top analytical software platforms provided when applicable.
Special strategy articles ("Spot check") statistically explore behavioral characteristics and tendencies in different currencies and the relationships between currencies and economic data. This type of analysis can provide excellent ideas for trading strategies and systems.
The "Big Picture" section features articles with a more macro perspective, looking at the longer-term picture and analyzing the larger market relationships that provide the context for trading.
Articles give subjects in-depth treatment — clearly explaining key concepts and providing background information and detail often absent in other sources.
Analysis of real trades
Virtually all good traders agree that maintaining a log or diary of trades is one of the most valuable learning tools available to all traders — the best way to learn from our inevitable mistakes. Each month we dissect a trade, discussing the system, strategy or catalyst that triggered an entry. Risks are identified and defined. The trade's outcome is analyzed. Finally, we gauge how well the trade plan was executed and what lessons the trade imparted.
Trading system analysis.
Detailed historical testing and research is the best way to find out if a trading idea has merit. Currency Trader includes rigorous historical back-testing of mechanical strategies, explores system design and provides complete analysis results.
