“One Day One Topic: Order Flow”, December 9th, 2014

 

Dear traders,

it is with pleasure that I introduce to you FXStreet’s “One Day, One Topic” webinars event.

I am among the 5 speakers invited to talk, during one day, around one same topic: ORDER FLOW. And of course… all for free!

That will be next Wednesday, December 10th, with the following traders and analysts:

Navin Prithyani Understanding Order Flow in Simple Terms at 11:00 GMT/ 06:00 am EST, by Navin Prithyani

“We all understand the need to adapt to market conditions like when to trend trade and when to range trade but many novice traders are unaware of is how to load up when the conditions are right. Spotting a good order flow in the market can give you days in a month where performance can be tripled or quadrupled.”

Giuseppe Basile Order Flow and Algorithms Footprints in Modern Markets at 12:00 GMT / 07:00 am EST, by Giuseppe Basile, CMT

Order Flow is about predicting the future flow of orders that will be generated so that you can position yourself to take advantage of the resulting price moves. A few ways order flow is analyzed are reviewed. The practical anticipation of the order flow through modeling of Algorithms heavily active in modern markets – so that a prepared trader can take advantage of it – is then discussed. A final reality check on what classes and families of Algorithms can be leveraged and used in our trading edge, and those that are too fast to be exploited is offered.

Chris Lori Leverage changes everything at 13:00 GMT / 08:00 am EST, by Chris Lori

Chris will discuss the impact of contributor banks on the interbank aggregate feeds. The price delivery risk management system of every investment bank plays a role in interbank aggregate price surges. We will discuss consistent price behaviours that may be useful in your trading model.

Sam Seiden Trade What is Real, Not What You Feel at 14:00 GMT/ 09:00 am EST, by Sam Seiden

During this session, Sam will share some strategy logic and rules for trading using price and price alone. The key is quantifying the markets real supply and demand equation and focusing on price levels where supply and demand is out of balance. This allows you to predict market turns and market moves in advance with a very high degree of accuracy.

Sam Seiden developed the Patented Supply and Demand strategy more than 20 years ago during his time on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He started his career focused on the FX market and began on the financial institution side of the business which helped him understand how markets really work and how money is really made and lost in markets. Join Sam as he shares his strategy rules which help you trade the FX market like a bank. This session will focus on an interactive lesson and live strategy application.

Ferran FontScalping and HFT (High Frequency Trading) at 17:00 GMT/ 12:00 pm EST, by Ferran Font

Since massive irruption of HFT machines (High Frequency Trading) has changed the classical way of Market Understanding, advance Innovative Techniques are required to adapt to this recent changes. In order to achieve a successful trading performance, particularly in the shorter timeframes like Scalping, modern strategies like Tape Reading, Order Flow Reading, or Order Book Reading, have proved to be effective to reach this goal.

Predatory Algorithms, need to fill thousands of Orders every millisecond, their activity, will provide us with an excellent starting point, as their big Volume Orders, will leave a Footprint that we can use to trigger our piggy-back System.

When Reading the Tape in Real Time, and matching this information with the Resting Orders (Order Book), we can isolate most of the HFT Patterns like Absorption, Spoofing, Stuffing, Dangling, Pack-Hunting, etc…
We will use the Market Profile Auction Theory in conjunction with Innovative Systems, to develop a successful Low Risk High Probability Set Up’s to be profitable in our Trading.

Happy trading!

 

I like helping traders at all level of development “level plain” the trading game showing what banks, institutions and big hedge funds are actually doing (and not what they are saying they are doing). Follow my work to learn how to spot the Algorithmic Trading footprints.

Successful first event with CMC Markets with the Toronto Forex Meetup Group – November 18, 2014

Dear traders,

last Saturday, I kicked off the new series of events in Toronto as host of the Toronto Forex Meetup Group by FXStreet.com

Here below find the account that event.

As usual I offered freely part of my research, this time, on the effects of HFT on other classes and families of Algos, those that I used in my own trading edge. Read below

Successful first event with CMC Markets in Toronto

This November we welcomed CMC Markets as new sponsor of the FXStreet Toronto trading group. CMC Markets has been an established player in the industry for 25 years. Their global presence covers Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Last Saturday, 15th of November, we held our first event together at the Sheraton Parkaway Conference Centre for an hour of learning about Forex. Practical considerations on the effects of HFT on price was the topic choosen by Giuseppe Basile, CMT, swing trader, IFTA associate and group host.

Giuseppe delighted us with an analysis on HFT. He provided a general vision on the concept and explained the effect on price structure, how does it change and the underlying “war” between classes and families of algorithms (not only HFT). The effects of HFT on methods attempt to frame price structure and show a real market example during planned news and what can happen in those cases.

If you missed it or just want to refresh the concepts, you have the chance to watch the full presentation here.

If you are in Toronto, join us!

Have a good day.

“Practical Considerations on the effects of HFT on price” Webinar recording now available – November 5, 2014

Dear Friends!

Yesterday I held a Webinar for FXStreet.com titled “Practical Considerations on the effects of HFT on price“.

In the webinar I have touched on the following 4 points:

  • I have  provided a brief introduction on HFT (High Frequency Trading) and how it matters to us
  • Presented the major effects of HFT on market price and price structure (very important)
  • Touched briefly on the “war” between algorithms in the market
  • Closed with an example of HFT “disturbing” a well-formed setup of a Program Trading algos.

Why am I so interested in HFT if, as retail traders, we cannot leverage them to our advantage? HFT algos run on specialize technical infrastructure and networks that are attached  to the main electronic exchanges. Therefore, there is no way we can compete with HFT.

However it is important to know HFT and study what are its effects on price. Particularly HFT behavior is capable of modifying price structure and can “help” Market Crashes!!! This is why there is a lot of talking about HFT and whether they are “socially useful”.

The debate surrounding high frequency trading has become increasingly heated, reflecting the varied perspectives on the ability (and desirability) of high frequency traders to move faster (and on the basis of potentially greater information) than other traders. In the past I have written about the contrarian view represented by Paul Krugman represents on HFT.

But my interest in HFT – like my interest in trading – is practical. Why am I worried of HFT? Because I know how it can have impact and skew my edge.

And what is my edge? If you do not know my work you may not know that I model effects of classes of Algorithms (other than HFT) on price. By doing that I can understand if/when/where Algos participates on price.

At the end of last year I have studied a typical example of how HFT can “disturb” my trading setups. If you are interested you can read here the full article on the battle of HFT versus Program Trading.

 

There are only few things that can be proven or are true about the markets. One of these is the existence of algorithms (which trade a very high volume, in some cases more than 80%) and they work on all time frames, in high volume markets, with clearly observable effects on price. And I am not talking only about HFT (High Frequency Trading) here.

The good news is that we can leverage the Algos (other than HFT) on price and and obtain a powerful edge that can significantly improve our rate of success. Something that the application of Traditional Technical Analysis will never be able to provide.

Have a look at how in the brief summary of this webinar.

“I will provide a brief introduction to HFT (High Frequency Trading) and some definitions. I will then elaborate on 2 major effects of HFT on the markets. First is the effect on price structure and how it changes. I will then touch on the underlying “war” between classes and families of algorithms (not only HFT). I will conclude with the effects of HFT on methods that attempt to frame price structure and show a real market example – during planned news – and what can happen in those cases.”

Hello Traders,

hope things are going well and your Friday is approaching smoothly, or maybe you are already relaxing?

I wanted to let you know that next Monday May 19 FXStreet.com, the largest global Forex portal, will be featuring my upcoming webinar titled: “Traditional and new uses of Fibonacci in Modern Markets”.

Here below is the webinar’s summary: Fibonacci is widely used in trading to model retracing price action where low-risk and high RR trades can be located. We review ways Fibonacci retraces are traditionally used and then compare those to a more effective method that helps framing price action. Program and algos Trading offer the edge to identify Fibonacci levels that enable ‘price discovery’, in addition to effective and complete trading plans.”
