    • 71. Noise VS Clear Direction Noise Direction
    • 72. Support and Resistance Lesson 10 - Forex Support and Resistance and Price Alarms Article 2 - Effective Use of Price Alarms The forex market is a support and resistance market. All trends start and end at support and resistance. All reversals and retracements start at support and resistance.
    • 73. Support and Resistance Support A support level is a price level where the price tends to find support as it is going down. This means the price is more likely to "bounce" off this level rather than break through it. However, once the price has passed this level, by an amount exceeding some noise, it is likely to continue dropping until it finds another support level. Resistance A resistance level is the opposite of a support level. It is where the price tends to find resistance as it is going up. This means the price is more likely to "bounce" off this level rather than break through it. However, once the price has passed this level, by an amount exceeding some noise, it is likely that it will continue rising until it finds another resistance level. Source: wikipedia
    • 74. Support and Resistance Entry Points Targets Stop levels
    • 75. Support and Resistance
    • 76. Support and Resistance
    • 77. Short term Support and Resistance M5, M15, H1 Timeframes (Intraday S&R)
    • 78. Long Term Support and Resistance H4, D1, W1, MN Timeframes
    • 79. Support and Resistance The Difference between Long Term and Short term S&R is you profit potential or “Room to Move”. How much room to move between Long and Short term?? My personal rule is it must be AT LEAST 100 pips! FEW is around 100-125 MINIMUM
    • 80. Support and Resistance What if you do not have 100 pips?? Road Block! DO NOT consider the trade! Move on and find another trade OR Wait till that level is cleared.
    • 81. Support and Resistance Wait until the level is cleared. Temporary Road Block
    • 82. Support and Resistance Visual Examples of Support and Resistance http://www.flickr.com/photos/forexearlywarning/
    • 83. Support and Resistance Entry = Short term Support & Resistance Profit Target = Long term Support & Resistance Stop Loss = Short term S&R for Beginners = Longer term S&R for Experienced Veterans(Bigger Stops) http://www.forexearlywarning.com/forex-lessons/forex-profit-taking
    • 84. Support and Resistance S&R Numbers are REPETATIVE on ranging and oscillating pairs
    • 85. Support and Resistance Trend Indicators converging: an indication of a currency pair stalling at support or resistance
    • 86. Price alarms Used to monitor Short term S&R for possible entry
    • 87. Your Job Yes , work is involved Know the condition of the market by examining charts systematically to assist in planning and entries
    • 88. MTFA- Multiple Time Frame Analysis Lesson 11 - Multiple Time Frame Analysis of The Spot Forex Article 4 - Multiple Time Frame Analysis Multiple time frame analysis (MTFA) is the inspection of very basic forex trend indicators and forex charts, starting with the largest trends and time frames, and working backwards down through successively smaller time frames to see how the smaller time frames and trends feed the larger time frames.
    • 89. MTFA- Multiple Time Frame Analysis Lesson 11 - Multiple Time Frame Analysis of The Spot Forex Article 4 - Multiple Time Frame Analysis When the smaller time frames are in agreement with the larger trends you can enter a spot forex trade in the direction of the trend with very good safety. If no trend exists on a particular currency pair the smaller time frames and trends will, at some point, build an uptrend or downtrend.
    • 90. MTFA- Multiple Time Frame Analysis Simply put: You are looking for the BEST and SAFEST direction to trade a currency pair
    • 91. MTFA Timeframes W1- Weekly Long term Trend D1 – Daily Intermediate term Trend H4 – 4 hourly Short Term Trend Main Direction Timeframes
    • 92. MTFA – What to observe Is it Trending or Oscillating? Is it Choppy Ranging? How FRESH or OLD are the Trends?
    • 93. MTFA – What to observe Is it Trending or Oscillating? This is your Direction Is it Choppy Ranging? This means don’t trade it! How FRESH or OLD are the Trends? This is your assessment of RISK
    • 94. MTFA – What to observe Is it Trending or Oscillating? The higher time frames trends and the direction of the major trend always overrule the lower time frames. What is the Largest time frame with Trend??
    • 95. MTFA – What to observe “When the smaller time frames are in agreement with the larger trends you can enter a spot forex trade in the direction of the trend with very good safety.” New trends in the smaller time frames enable us to enter the trends in the larger time frames if a currency pair is trending.
    • 96. MTFA – What to observe Parallel and Inverse Are all or most of the pairs in a group of 7 going the same way or doing the same thing???? Important!!
    • 97. MTFA- Smaller Timeframes If you have a Large trend like W1 you could wait for a fresh trend on D1 or H4 back in the direction of the W1. Direction. Direction. Direction. W1 D1 H4 H1 M30 M15 What is a smaller time frame? Depends on the trend or oscillation you are trading. If you are trading the H4 trend, You could wait for a fresh H1 trend to get in H4 trend

    • 102. What Do I Do Now? I have analyzed currency pairs using MTFA. I found a currency pair in a strong uptrend. Parallel & Inverse verifies the Direction. The difference between short term and long term resistance is 300 pips. I have a price alarm set at short term resistance.
    • 103. How Do I Enter Trades? You enter trades with the Forex Heatmap® In the MAIN trading session
    • 104. The Forex Heatmap® Visual map of Parallel and Inverse at entry
    • 105. The Forex Heatmap® Main Goal at the beginning is to Learn to: Master it!
    • 106. When Do I Enter Trades?
    • 107. How Do I Enter Trades? The Forex Heatmap® Monitors 28 Pairs in Real Time Measures Movement of Currency Strength and Weakness Lesson 15 - The Forex Heatmap
    • 108. What the Heatmap Does NOT Do Does NOT know the direction of or if a Trend exists Does NOT know strength or quality of the Trend Does NOT know if the movement has just started Does NOT know if the pair moved hundreds of pips already, Does NOT plan a trade for you. Does NOT know where support or resistance is. Does NOT know if news drivers are coming out.
    • 109. What the Heatmap Does Do Tells you which individual currencies are strong or weak or mixed. Point you to additional trading opportunities in the same P&I group of pairs that you may have not considered during the planning process.
    • 110. Anatomy of the Heatmap Arranged by 8 individual Currencies USD CHF EUR JPY GBP AUD CAD NZD All pairs are represented twice
    • 111. Strong on All Pairs
    • 112. Anatomy of the Heatmap Separated into 2 Sessions
    • 113. Anatomy of the Heatmap Current time in GMT NEXT reset to zero (countdown timer) Refreshes every 30 seconds
    • 114. Anatomy of the Heatmap Change in price shown in percentage Visual Bar showing price change direction
    • 115. % Change and Bar Graph Move Together
    • 116. Highest % UP and Down Biggest mover UP (over.25) Gets green Arrow Biggest mover DOWN(over.25) Gets red Arrow
    • 117. Anatomy of the Heatmap % change is based on the currency pair price movement 0.25% move up EUR/USD current rate = 1.3330 1.3330 x 0.25% = 33 pips of movement 33 pip move on EUR/USD 33 / 1.3330 = 0.25%
    • 118. Anatomy of the Heatmap 1.00% move on GBP/CAD GBP/CAD current rate = 1.6263 1.6263 x 1.00%(.01) = 162 pips of movement 162 pip move on GBP/CAD 162 / 1.6263 = 1.00%
    • 119. Anatomy of the Heatmap Price Rising = Green Bar Price Rising = % Rising Price Drop = Red Bar Price Drop = % Drop
    • 120. Parallel and Inverse The only thing that DRIVES price and price movement
    • 121. EUR Strong CAD Weak /
    • 122. CAD STRONG EUR WEAK /
    • 123. / EUR and CAD are BOTH Strong or BOTH Weak
    • 124. JPY Strong on All Pairs
    • 125. JPY Strong on All Pairs
    • 126. Slingshots
    • 127. Slingshot GBP/AUD
    • 128. Mixed Signals Simply don’t trade!! The Forex Heatmap is a GO or NO Go indicator.
    • 129. Heatmap Supplemental Trades Point you to additional trading opportunities in the same P&I group of pairs that you may have not considered during the planning process. Points you towards that you may not have anticipated based on the trend analysis and trade planning process. (Warning!)
    • 130. Heatmap Supplemental Trades Don’t Fall into the trap of only trading Heatmap Signals!!! Use it for what it was designed for.
    • 131. Heatmap Scenarios The GBP/JPY is consolidating and starts a fresh movement, but only the GBP is strong, do you take the trade?? Generally speaking yes because it’s a fresh move starting after a consolidation, check the charts for next resistance point.
    • 132. Heatmap Scenarios Some news comes out and a price alarm hits, you see a strong EUR and the EUR/JPY has a fresh moving average cross trend on the H4 chart, do you take the trade?? Yes, if there is no nearby resistance.
    • 133. Heatmap Scenarios The EUR/CHF is consolidating but in a strong downtrend, the D1 and W1 timeframes are separated with no support, a fresh down cycle starts through support, the EUR is weak and the CHF is neutral. Do you enter the trade?? Yes, the trend is strong and the pair was consolidating so likely no slingshot is required.
    • 134. Heatmap Scenarios You check the heatmap in the main session and the EUR/CAD is a slingshot with EUR strong and CAD weak. You check the H4 and it is separated with no resistance. Do you take the trade?? Yes, most definitely.
    • 135. Heatmap Scenarios The AUD/JPY starts to move in the Asian session and moves 225 pips overnight, do you buy it in the main session if the heatmap signals are good?? No, definitely not, too deep into the move, it has been moving for 12 hours, you missed it.
    • 136.
