#1 reason traders fail in auto-trading


The number one reason traders fail in their auto-trading is due to lack of proper monitoring of their trading systems. Algo-trading is all about being able to find a needle in a haystack. If you are running 50 systems on your MT4 account, processing of statistical data can become very overwhelming. CoensioMT4Charts tool generates beautiful graphs and a clear overview of all system statistics, directly on your local MT4 platform.

+4500pips in the last 100 signals.


This time I will have a closer look at the FxMagnetic indicator. According to the makers of this indicator, the signals provided by this indicator are very accurate. The indicator has several different versions, each version is fine-tuned to specific currency pair (which makes sense from the algo-trading point of view). Of course everything is based on statistics and probabilities, but for example the current GBPJPY version of this indicator ‘predicted’ last 100 trades with the resulting profit of +4500pips and only 20% draw-down.

Free video course: How to properly optimize trading systems


Curve-fitting is the most common mistake made by inexperienced algo-traders. This is because the MT4 based optimization is nothing else but pure curve-fitting. Curve-fitting is a fancy name for cherry-picking (or ‘falsely’ connecting the dots), where you optimize your system using all possible combinations of all parameters and you select only the best results, the highest profits or the best looking equity charts.

How to buy Ripple (XRP)


It is almost the end of 2017, the year of cryptocurrencies! The year where almost everybody has at least heard terms like “cryptocurrency”, “token” or “block-chain”. It is also the year where Bitcoin smashed all records and gained more than 600%! Cryptocurrencies are becoming widely accepted in our society. Big players in financial world like Goldman Sachs finally are recognizing the huge potential of the upcoming block-chain technologies.

However, for most people (even for forex traders) investing in cryptocoins is still something unfamiliar and out of reach. For those who are familiar with Bitcoins, it is probably already too late to “jump in”, Bitcoin is one huge bubble with the price sky-rocketing towards $10.000! I wish I’ve purchased Bitcoins at $0.20/BTC few years ago;) But I didn’t…so what are the alternatives?

Understand the probabilities in trading…


In this blog I want to try to explain you, why understanding the probabilities in FOREX trading is so important. In general trading business is not much different from ‘owning a casino’. All casino owners know their probability numbers and know that statistics are on their side. In order to be profitable in trading you must think like a casino owner. You must know your statistics and know your winning probability over a large number of trades. To give you a good example on how probability can affect your trading results, I’ve coded a simple trade simulator.
