Topic:Trading Opportunities with Percentage Allocation Management Module (PAMM) Accounts

Abstract & Biography

Abstract:
The PAMM Account can be thought of as both a trading account and a financial trading tool. With a PAMM Account, one has the opportunity to benefit from the trades of an experienced forex trader, who is colloquially referred to as the "Manager" and is responsible for all his trades. Investors, who wish to also see their own accounts follow the same trades as the Manager, can connect to a Manager's PAMM Account by opening “PAMM Accounts”, representing their share in the PAMM Account as a whole. Each PAMM Manager also has their own PAMM Account (the Manager's PAMM Account), representing their personal investment in the PAMM Account.

By joining forces with a seasoned forex trader, the PAMM Account makes the forex market accessible to anyone, including those who don't have the time or the experience to trade independently.

Subject:How To Profit From Market Traps – News Trading Using The Break And Retrace Method

Abstract & Biography

Abstract:
It has long been argued by the academic world that movements in the financial markets, at least over the short-term, can take on the appearance of “random noise”. This is supposedly caused when market participants react to the latest piece of price-sensitive news making their judgments in light of new information by buying and selling financial assets.

Howard Friend CMT, a long-time student of market price dynamics and participant in the financial markets, believes that many of these “random” movements or bursts in volatility have at their root a similar psychological trigger and come as a result of “trapped” traders bailing out of losing positions. In this presentation, Howard will discuss one of his many “Trap” set-ups and will introduce one of his proprietary trading strategies for the market Trap.

Biography:
Howard initially spent 5 years as a Sales/Trader for a Japanese securities trading firm followed by a short spell at Reuters. He then moved into his specialist area of technical analysis and has undertaken numerous advisory and trading roles over the past 15 years. Howard is a strong advocate of the systematic approach to trading and has developed many highly profitable proprietary models for use in short-term trading. He is a member of the Market Technician's Association, holding the ‘Chartered Market Technician’ designation. He appears regularly on the financial TV networks as a market commentator and conducts seminars on trading techniques and technical analysis.

Subject: Trading Forex Interventions – How to Make the Central Banks of Japan & Switzerland Work for You

Abstract & Biography

Abstract:
Central Bank interventions are a hot topic among traders lately, and who can blame them, when a typical intervention can move a currency by anywhere between 300 and 1000 pips in a matter of minutes! This year alone, we have witnessed 3 interventions from the Bank of Japan in an attempt to prevent the JPY from getting stronger. The Swiss National Bank has also fought to keep the CHF sufficiently weak so as not to hurt the country’s economy, recently announcing a EURCHF peg at 1.2000.

Forex interventions are generally viewed as hard to predict and dangerous to trade, but one man’s loss is another man’s profit. By understanding what drives these central banks to intervene and weaken their currencies, you can learn to anticipate upcoming interventions and plan trades that could maximize your potential profits.

Learn how to identify pre-intervention trading opportunities, and how to trade with minimum risk and maximum potential rewards.
