Choosing A Forex Trading System – Part 5

Choosing A Forex Trading System – Part 5

No discussion of trading system evaluation would be complete without a discussion of drawdown. We must always look at the maximum drawdown of any trading system as it is very, very important.

The maximum drawdown of trading system is defined as the greatest peak-to-valley drawdown in a trading system’s equity. Let’s say for example that we have a trading system that reaches a particular equity peak of 0,000. Let’s further say that two weeks later, the trading system equity is at ,000. In this example, let’s say that the ,000 equity happens to be an equity valley. In that case, the peak-to-valley drawdown would be 0,000-,000 equals ,000. This means that the maximum drawdown is ,000.

So why is the maximum drawdown such an important measurement in our evaluation of a trading system? It’s because the maximum drawdown gives us a measure of the survivability of the trading system. A simple measure, but a measure nonetheless. Basically, when we look at the maximum drawdown we can say that this maximum drawdown can happen again at any time throughout the life of the trading system. This is particularly important when it comes to evaluating starting account size.

As an example, let’s say that you started to trade the system using an account funded with ,000. Right off the bat, you can see that this would not be prudent, because as we can see from our maximum drawdown figure if we went into a drawdown immediately after starting our account our account balance would logically be wiped out.

We can see from this quick illustration that we definitely need to fund our account with more money than enough to cover the maximum trading system drawdown. It makes perfect sense to have a buffer of some sort as well.

I would exercise caution, if you are looking a trading system and the recommended account size is the exact same size as the maximum drawdown.

The maximum drawdown is an essential measure that gives us a better idea of what to expect when trading a particular system. A comparison of risk versus reward is an absolute essential in successful trading.

Expert Advisors: For And Against Automating Your Trading System

Expert Advisors: For And Against Automating Your Trading System

An expert advisor is a piece of software which works as a plug-in for your trading platform. The purpose of an expert advisor is to automate your own (or someone else’s) trading system.

An expert advisor works by monitoring any market for you 24 hours a day, looking to place trades for you once it sees that certain parameters (based on your own, or someone else trading strategy) have been met.

To build your own expert advisor, you need to have a working knowledge of the MetaQuotes Language 4 (MQL4) which is the built-in language for programming trading strategies. There are companies which will (for a fee) automate your trading strategy and build an expert advisor for you based on your own settings. There are also companies which will sell you their own expert advisors.

Most forex expert advisors are developed for the Metatrader trading platform. Developed by Russian programmers, Metatrader had become the standard trading platform for many professional traders and forex brokers.

Once you have built your own expert advisor (usually a file ending in .EX4) or purchased someone else’s, the process of setting it up with Metatrader 4 is quite simple. It is just a matter of opening and installing the file into your MT4 platform.


The main advantages of trading with an expert advisor are:

1. The expert advisor has a plan. It sticks to this plan and the settings you have developed into it no matter how uncertain the market looks or how you may feel about the market at a particular point of time.

2. The expert advisor is consistent. It can eliminate the negative human aspects of trading which include fear, greed and inconsistency in trading.

3. The expert advisor frees you up from physically having to watch and analyse the charts to find a signal to enter/exit trades. It does this automatically for you so you don’t have to sit in front of your computer all day.

4. Freeing you up from watching charts for entry and exit signals also has the added benefit of giving you more time to spend on actually developing your trading strategies, doing back tests and more and more tests.

5. Finally, the expert advisor (or forex robot) can monitor many markets at once, giving you access to many more trading opportunities than you can physically find and analyse by yourself.


1. The robot (expert advisor) does not and will never have the feel for the human and the soft non-programmable issues. The trader must always look at the bigger picture, the fundamentals as well as the hundreds of other important issues which affect the ebb and flow of the forex market.

2. Many traders also choose to use expert advisors for the wrong reason. They believe that simply by trading with a robot they will automatically have better results or be better traders. Essentially, all an expert advisor will help you with is with trading consistency. It will just free up your time to focus on developing and testing your trading strategies instead of physically having to look for and execute trading opportunities.

How To Find The Best Forex Trading System

How To Find The Best Forex Trading System

When you start to look around, for a viable Forex trading system, you quickly become aware, of so many options out there that you may not be sure where to begin.

In order to pick the right trading system, you will need to establish some basic criteria that you can use to evaluate any possible candidates. Here are some suggestions to help you make your choice.

One of the first things you need to check into is what type of commitment you have to make in order to use the system.

Will you need to commit a minimum amount of resources to the system in order to be able to participate? If so, what is that minimum amount?

Set aside any trading system, which insists that you have to set aside an amount of funds, that you are not comfortable with or are unable to reasonably commit and still maintain your current standard of living.

Next, look into support resources that are available to you as a user of the system.

You want to know that you have access to up to the minute information, as currency exchange rates can and often do change several times a day.

You may also want to look for a comprehensive tutorial that helps you understand the way the system works at each juncture. Another aspect in regard to resources has to do with the ability to communicate with another human being.

Can this be accomplished with emails, direct chats or even by placing a toll free phone call? Pass on any system that seems to leave you hanging out there on your own, even if you consider yourself too savvy to ask for help.

The fact is that you will need assistance at some point and it would be nice to know it is there when that day comes.

You may also want to look closely at what type of claims for success are made for the system in question.

While you do want to get involved with a system that has a proven track record, there is no need to waste your time with any trading system that promises overnight wealth.

While people can and do make impressive livings involved in currency trading, the fact is that they tend to make them over time, not overnight.

Avoid any system that makes what seem to be grandiose claims for success. Focus your attention more on trading systems that will be able to support you for the long term, as you incrementally grow your revenue stream.

Finding a Forex trading system that is reputable, reliable, and will provide you with the support you need can be done.

If you take a little time to evaluate each possibility and make sure the trading system provides everything you need to grow your own success.

It can be helpful to find out what others think of a system before you purchase one.

If you search for Forex forums in search engines, then join a few of these forums, you will soon get an idea of Forex trading systems that have a good reputation, this will help give you confidence before you purchase one.

It should be noted Forex trading involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors.

Find A Money Making Forex Trading System That Works And Suits You

Find A Money Making Forex Trading System That Works And Suits You

In Forex Trading, there are two main approaches – Fundamental Analysis and Technical Analysis. Fundamental analysts will concentrate on the underlying causes of price movements, whereas as technical chartist studies the actual price movement.

Fundamental analyst focus on various macroeconomic indicators – Interest Rate, Trade Balances, Growth Rates, and Unemployment rates, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Inflation and etc. For beginners, do take note that there is no single set of rule to trade Forex using fundamental analysis. There are many theories on how a currency should be valued.

Technical analyst used historical price data to forecast the direction of future price movement. Technical analysis work on the premise that all current market information is already reflected in the price and that studying price action alone is more than necessary to trade the market.

Some popular methods of technical analysis include, Chart Pattern, Japanese Candlestick Pattern, Trend line, Support and Resistance Line, Pivot points, Fibonacci Retracement and Elliott wave theory. Technical Indicators which utilize mathematical or quantitative tools are Moving Averages, Bollinger Band, Average True Range, Stochastic Oscillators, Fibonacci Retracement, Commodity Channel Index, Convergence and Divergence of Moving Averages (MACD) and Relative Strength Index (RSI).

After understanding these two widely known methods of analysis available, you could be more or less able to tell which methodology suits you most. If you are very financial incline type of person, fundamental analysis may be your forte.

In Forex trading, traders tend to rely more on technical analysis to make informed decision on future price movement.

Most seasoned trader after years of trading tend to develop their own trading system or methodology. The system could be a combination of certain technical indicators which they are very comfortable with. It is only when a trader is very comfortable with his system that he will trade it wholeheartedly and confidently.
For others, they may decide to trade someone else’s system.

Regardless of whatever approaches you use – be it fundamental analysis or technical analysis, the system or method must be profitable and nothing else matter.

For many traders, they think that the best way to find out whether a system or method is profitable is through back testing. However, back testing has its disadvantage is that it can never fully duplicate live market conditions. What is obvious setup may not be so obvious in real time.

A better alternative is by forward testing trading your system in real-time with a demo account. Forward testing will give you a better and clearer understanding of what your system is capable of. In Forex trading, live demo account is so widely and easily available and trades just like a real account. It is an excellent way to evaluate the profitability of a system.

For a system to be profitable, we also need to know about expectancy and opportunity.

Basically, expectancy will tell a trader what you can expect to make (win or lose) for every dollar risked. The expectancy formula is as follows:

Expectancy = (Probability of winning × average win) – (Probability of losing × average loss).

It will produce a figure which is the average amount you can expect to profit per trade. If the expectancy is negative, it means that the system or method can’t generate profit. And obviously, the higher the expectancy is the better.

After expectancy, we will have to look at the opportunity factor. Opportunity simply means the number of opportunity you are able to trade with your system or method. By multiplying expectancy with opportunity, a trader will know how much you can make with your system or method over a period of time. For obvious reason, if the system’s expectancy is positive and offers plentiful of trading opportunities, it will means more profit.

Now, we have come to the most important aspect of Trading – Money Management. 90% of traders failed in Forex Trading mainly because of they don’t understand the important of money management. Money management will inform you how much you should risk per trade. The main focus of money management is the preservation of trading capital to ensure your survival over the long term. The most common method of money management is the percent risk model. It will tell a trader not to risk more than how many percent of your trading account balance on any one trade. Generally, a range of between 1-3% is acceptable percentage to use in order to make money in the long term. Just imagine if a trader has a risk exposure of 20% per trade, few straight losses in a row will wipe out the entire account.

After reading the above factors, you will be more or less able to know which approaches suits you.

Forex Trading System: Discretionary vs. Mechanical Systems

Forex Trading System: Discretionary vs. Mechanical Systems

There are basically two types of Forex trading systems, mechanical and discretionary systems. The trading signals that come out of mechanical systems are mainly based off technical analysis applied in a systematic way. On the other hand, discretionary systems use experience, intuition or judgment on entries and exits. But which one produces better results? Or more importantly, which one fits better your trading style? These are the answers we will try to answer on this article.

We will first analyze the pros and cons about each system approach.

Mechanical systems

This kind of system can be automated and backtested efficiently.
It has very rigid rules. Either, there is a trade or there isn’t.
Mechanical traders are less susceptible to emotions than discretionary traders.

Most traders backtest Forex trading systems incorrectly. In order to produce accurate results you need tick data.
The Forex market is always changing. The Forex market (and all markets) has a random component. The market conditions may look similar, but they are never the same.
A system that worked successfully the past year doesn’t necessary mean it will work this year.

Discretionary systems

Discretionary systems are easily adaptable to new market conditions.
Trading decisions are based on experience. Traders learn to see which trading signals have higher probability of success.

They cannot be backtested or automated, since there is always a thought decision to be made.
It takes time to develop the experience required to trade successfully and track trades in a discretionary way. At early stages this can be dangerous.

Now, which approach is better for Forex traders? The one that fits better your personality. For instance, if you are a trader that finds it hard to follow your trading signals, then you are better off using a mechanical system, where your judgment won’t play an important role in your system. You only take the trades that your system signals.

If the psychological barriers that affect every trader (fear, greed, anger, etc.) puts you in unwanted scenarios, you are also better off trading mechanical systems, because you only need to follow what your system is telling you, go short, go long, close a trade. No other decision has to be made.

On the other hand, if you are a disciplined trader, then you are better off using a discretionary system, because discretionary systems adapt to the market conditions and you are able to change your trading conditions as the market changes. For instance, you have a target of 60 pips on a long trade. But the market suddenly starts trending up pretty strongly, then you could move your target to say 100 pips.

Does it mean that trading a discretionary system has no rules? This is absolutely incorrect. Trading discretionary systems means that once a trader finds his/her setup, the trader then decides what to do. But every trader still needs certain rules that need to be followed, such as the size of the position, conditions that have to be met before thinking to get in the market, and so on.

I am a discretionary trader. The main reason I chose a discretionary system is that my trades are based on price behavior, and as you already know, the price behaves similar to the past, but it is never identical, therefore the outcome of every trade is unknown. However, I do have rigid rules on my system, certain conditions have to be met before I even think in getting in a trade. This keeps me out of trouble, once my setup is present and in accordance with the rules I have set, then I closely watch the price behavior and finally decide whether it is a good opportunity or not.

Whether you choose to be a discretionary or a mechanical trader there are some important points you should take in consideration:

1. You need to make sure the Forex trading system you are using totally fits your personality. Otherwise you will find yourself outguessing your system.
2. You also need to have some rules and most importantly have the discipline to follow them.
3. Take your time to build the perfect system for you. It’s not easy and requires time and hard work, but at the end, if done correctly, it will give you consistent profitable results.
4. Before going live, try it on a demo account or even on a small account (I will go for the second option, since psychological barriers will be present.)
