  3. 3. FFoorreexx TTrraaddiinngg SSttaattiissttiiccss –– GGeeoorrggee MM.. PPrroottoonnoottaarriiooss 3 / 52 FOREX TRADING STATISTICS Introduction –Information is Power when Trading Forex Forex trading is a complicated financial game where winning or losing depends upon three major parameters: (i) level of information, (ii) efficiency of the trading strategy, and (iii) efficiency of the money management. This eBook aims to strengthen the level of information of all online Forex traders. Global currency rates fluctuate according to important fundamental changes (macroeconomic, strategic, political, social and technological). The core of any investment valuation is based on fundamental facts and figures. Statistics is in the business of analyzing past price data and identifying potential price patterns. As these price patterns were originally formed according to a particular row of fundamental events and figures, we may argue that Fundamental Analysis and Statistics form a unified area of researching and analyzing the behavior of global financial markets. After reading this eBook you will be able to realize that Forex currencies fluctuate by following particular time patterns. The demand for Forex currencies tend to increase or to decrease during particular calendar months. These months are usually end-of- quarter months, and especially December, as the year ends. Additionally, you will be able to identify positive and negative correlations between Forex pairs that tend to occur during certain calendar months. Never forget that statistics is based on past data and that means it will never be able to forecast the upcoming price action with certainty and accuracy. If you adore certainty probably you are in the wrong business. Whenever unexpected fundamental changes occur, statistics will prove useless in describing / forecasting the price action. Statistics and technical analysis should be seen as a complementary framework to fundamental analysis, and not as an independent framework of analyzing and forecasting the price of any financial-traded asset. This eBook is dedicated to all those living their life outside of the ‘box’. Make money using it, but also use it with caution and with respect to your Trading Strategy and to your Money Management System. Apply your money management with military discipline and balance always your capital-leverage decisions. Capital leverage is an enemy and a friend at the same time, choose sides wisely. Never forget risk because making money starts from not losing money. George M. Protonotarios, Athens, Hellas Financial Analyst -Msc in “Int.
