Sample test different technical indicators for optimal forex market entries
There seems to be no spread or volume different when testing popular pairs vs volatile
Posted to my Telegram private group:
Here are my tests so far for a late friday EDT. for dukascopy, the 2 most volatile pairs (e.g. ZARJPY and USDZAR) vs more popular pairs like EURUSD and USDJPY have the similar spread cost and volume is very similar across the board. This is all within Dukascopy. I will have a video posted later today on it. I think I may need to retest on a Weds afternoon to see if there is a differennce but I wanted to test this thoery on random trading day with no news shocks.
t is Bryan here from QuantLabs.net, yet another turning out to be a decent set of podcast episodes as well they get turned into videos and other content repurposing. Anyways, just wanted to give you an update on my Telegram private messaging group, we were up to about 40 people. I will be pruning them down to about five people. What I’ve learned over the years is when it comes to audiences there’s usually 90, I’d even say 99% of the audience is very quiet. They’re lurking on the conversation. I’m not sure if that means that they are taking ideas just using it for their own use. At this point, it does not bother me, but it does hold back my groups because the stars of the group feel they are holding back some really good juicy information. As a result, I will be pruning those 40 people down to a tiny number of five people. That basically means that it’s five highly engaging people sharing ideas and learning some very, very high end trading ideas I never thought of.
For instance, there was a pretty good conversation last night regarding my testing of my volatility currency pairs. Basically, the realization came to about six hours of really not finding anything effective. Last week I did some more testing, which did not result in a lot, but it did help produce some other interesting ideas that can be implemented to reduce downward risk. Again, this is all theoretical in the realm of portfolio management.
Last night’s conversation revealed a few interesting ideas. The current state was to use highly volatile currency pairs and find indicators that you could use to create entry points into the markets. The problem is that more stable currency pairs like Euro, US dollar, virtually don’t give you the opportunity that you may look for. A result, they’re stable and they barely move. I posted that on my blog last night. As a result, these exotic pairs that I’m after, which are usually the most volatile, for instance, the South African rand against the Japanese yen may move quite a bit but the two items to note they are highly illiquid and the spread is usually fairly high to even make it not worth trading. As a result, one of the persons in this group suggested to only use currency pairs that either have the US dollar, Japanese yen, or Euro, in the pair to test liquidity. Then there was another conversation about the Swiss franc and the Chinese yuan as well, but it turns out that the country’s central banking policy can easily destroy the country’s opportunity as a currency pair to trade.
Another part that was mentioned was how it is difficult to trade off of the calls of central banks. These are sort of things that we maybe able to use but as you can tell, some of these are highly experienced traders in this group. As a result, I’m very blessed to have these people in the group who are willing to share their experiences and trading ideas. As a result, I will not be revealing any of this stuff but I just wanted to give you a sample of some of the conversations.. All I can tell you is it’s going to get even better with some of the machine learning framework views, some of the techniques, so and so forth. This is obviously really trading edge for highly successful, high achievers, who are real traders, not just theoretical, or just people that lurk trading groups and forums.
As I said, I’m pretty happy with this. I’m really looking forward to implementing some of these ideas but it’s unfortunate I will not be sharing this as such because of this is very, very valuable, and will give me a definite trading edge over other people. As a result, where does this leave you? Well as I’m starting to roll out and heavily test my trading ideas in the Dukascopy Forex Broker trading platform called Jforex. I think it’s advantageous to take these extra ideas, and unique ideas, and implement them in these trading ideas. I will hopefully, as I said, we reduce the draw downs and enhance any trading potential that I have. All of this, of course, will be fully automated and as time marches on less and less will be revealed, but more unique trading ideas will definitely be implemented. As I said, if you want to learn what I currently have, I obviously have the revamping on my Quant Elite membership as well, which includes a one year analytics membership. You can find that on my website at QuantLabs.net and just go to the top and look for product section. You’ll see an analytic full member option on the second row. It has a diamond icon in it.
All right, so hopefully that will help you out. Thanks again for listening. Just as a mention, everybody that’s new and subscribing to my podcast, I really appreciate it. Hopefully I give your more value for it. I’ll be pumping out more content over the next couple days and weeks. Have a good day.

From a Facebook group user: wait!! I did not know about this!!!

I got to know this for the first time!!! pls guide me through to get the free pdf books… I have trouble accessing these!! do not know how to get them downloaded (incase they are free) I need the C++ for quant trading on page 1 help me through this!!!
How to use? Simple. Press the link and download button is offered. Or the source code is provided. Oddly it looks like the section is getting pounded so it could be slow
Yes, it will be removed but remember it has been there for three years.
Anyone have sample investment templates for new hedge funds?
I’m in the process of writing 8 sample templates for a hedge fund that cannot be longer than one page (4 long, 4 short). Does anyone have any good samples that I can look at? Please let me know. Thanks
I don’t have any samples, but would you send me any templates you have/receive, as I would like to see them as well. Sincerest thanks.
Hello, do you have more specifics on the templates the HF is requesting? Is this a new HF or are they restructuring existing business/investment model?
