Big Picture View of Forex and Futures Markets By, Gabriel Grammatidis

  Happy New Year and a good start to the trading year 2020! This 14-minute video has a Top-Down-Analysis for the year; outlining the big upcoming trends in the Forex Markets. Overall, we should see a continuation of EUR and AUD weaknesses against USD, CHF, JPY, and NZD strength. In particular, the important price level of par/1.0000 in EURUSD will act almost like a magnet to attract price there. I expect prices to develop increased momentum during this year and we might even see some economic chaos starting in the …

Crypto Update – Heavy Altcoin Selling Today By Gabriel Grammatidis

After today’s strong sell-off in the Altcoins I am expecting to see new lows (Weekly chart) in the coming weeks. The Altcoins already lagging BTC quite a bit, new lows will trigger a panic with the Crypto-perma-bulls who should then become desperate throwing the towel. This is the moment when the weak hands change with the strong ones. As long as BTC remains above the 3200 level (the last major low) my bullish case for BTC >100,000 is still valid. Watch Gabriel’s video below:

Have You Heard the Starting Shot For Bitcoin As Well?, by Gabriel Grammatidis

Just a few days ago on the 25th of October, the price of Bitcoin surged by a staggering +42% within 15 hours representing one of its biggest moves since its inception in 2009. Even for a volatile asset class, this move was very big — BTC jumped 3,000 points from $7,300 to more than $10,400. It is interesting to note that Bull markets often start with an exciting initial move that makes market actors aware of the fact that something is going on. What might actually have happened that made …

Deliberate Practice Helps You In Achieving Trading Mastery, by Gabriel Grammatidis

Tennis was a very popular sport in Germany in the early 1980s so as an adolescent, one of my dreams was to become a professional tennis player. Back then, the most common form of practice was to play against other players on the court. This was a very tedious and slow way of learning, growing and improving. Luckily, I had an excellent coach and became an excellent tennis player. My coach taught me a lot about tennis, but as it turns out, he also taught me a lot about learning …

Trading Price Shakeouts in Futures, by Gabriel Grammatidis

For a good part of every year, I stay in Greece where I have a home close to the water. I share a speedboat with a friend of mine, and I really love to drive it. It is fun and at some point in its acceleration process, the boat becomes very stable and glides nicely above the waves. Speedboats also allow you to change direction in an instant with only a slight turn of the steering wheel. This typically provides a good surprise for friends on board. In order for …

A Structured Approach to Trading Mastery, by Gabriel Grammatidis

Many traders start a trading venture and approach the markets in a very discretionary way with barely any rules – or no rules at all. They have a strong desire to apply their own ‘trading guts’ testing out if the success they have met in life can be transferred to trading as well. Typically, ‘beginners luck’ fuels a passion to become rich quickly, however, the human brain is wired to lose in the markets. All to often, new traders’ first trading accounts get destroyed (Van blew up two accounts after …
