Today’s Forex Training Video : Understanding the False Break “FAKEY” Price Action Strategy. Please watch the ENTIRE VIDEO.

Video Synopsis – Forex Price Action Strategies Video

In the above forex training video I discuss the “story” that surrounds the trade setup to begin with. The story is that one of my member’s posted up this setup in the member’s forum and this alerted me to a setup that I otherwise would have missed. The point is that my trading community has grown to such a point that trader’s are interacting with one another and bouncing ideas around and learning from each other, the member's forum has also recently been totally re-vamped with a brand new V-bulletin forum!. We are learning how to find price action setups here instead of being spoon-fed trading signals.

Anything above a 1hr chart is something that I personally look at on the majors pairs. In this video I discuss the more advanced “fakey setup” with simple trend analysis and swing point analysis. I discuss the fakey setup extensively in my trading course. The trend was down in this setup and we had a swing point providing confluence of resistance at 163.79. A member in my forum posted up the large pin bar / fakey reversal that showed rejection of the mentioned resistance level as well as a false break of the inside bar cluster. The confirmed entry for me would have been the close of the pin bar itself, a more conservative entry would have been a break of the low of the mother bar that surrounds the inside bars. This video discussion pin bars reversals and the fakey is for education purposes only, as always.

    But isnt it that it is better to wait for a FAKEY SET UP in the DAILY CHART than in H4 Chart? For me, waiting for the closing price still matters most.

    Thanks Nial,

    The truth of forcing the emotion in order to break the emotional control is so important. After being referred to your website from a friend it opened my eyes that I can be involved in the Forex market without having the 5 -10k account my friend plays with. Adding to this is the fact that he enjoys my reflections on the chart even though he has given it real time and money.
    I look forward to learning all your lessons and applying them and sharing my trades without the gambling nature I have followed prior to this enlightenment.

    Hi Nail

    I know that you get this question daily.How much capital do i need to start up for day trading currency?


    • nial November 7, 2009 at 12:59 pm

      Hi, In my eyes, the trader knows how much capital he is comfortable trading. That means what he can sleep at night trading and feel comfortable if he was to loose all of it. As forex can be risky if you dont know what your doing, its best to start trading real money in smaller quantities until you become more confident. I think $200 to$500 is actually enought to learn on, you wont get rick overnight, but If you apply price action principles and manage your capital correctly , then you could double that money quite quickly. The idea is that real money will produce real emotions, and a demo account wont do that for you. The sooner you can be confident enought to trade even mirco lots, the more you will learn about real trading emotions etc. Hope this helps.
