FX – Identifying optimal entry setups using TA algorithms - Entering a trade can be as simple as observing that the instrument is trending up or down and going with the flow, which may or may not be successful! To increase the probability of success, professional traders use a suite of technical indicators brought together as an algorithm, each of which defines an entry setup. This presentation describes the process Pippa Carron has used to generate algorithms and setups in forex trading, although the process is equally applicable to stock trading. Examples of several different FX setups will be described.

Bruce Wood will share his decision making approach on a stock currently in play.

For our chart analysis session, if any member would like to nominate any ASX stock to be reviewed, please email in advance, details of your nominated ticker codes to Mary McNamara (E)
