Ask the Trading Experts - FX Leaders
How volatile are digital currencies?
Answer
Digital currencies, or cryptocurrencies, are extremely volatile. Although forex is volatile, cryptocurrencies are even more so. Major currencies rarely move more than 5 percent in one day. Cryptocurrencies, however, often move more than 10 percent in one single day. Our Best Cryptocurrency to Invest in 2018 recently gained 72 percent in a single day.
What leverage should I use to trade cryptocurrencies?
Answer
Cryptocurrencies, also known as digital currencies, are very volatile, so the leverage should be adjusted accordingly. If you use x10 leverage on your forex trades, then for cryptocurrency trades you must reduce the leverage by 8-10 times as the crypto market is 10 times more volatile. This means that you should trade with no leverage at all. If the volatility picks up further, you should cut your leverage even more - have fewer positions open. Don’t worry about making a good profit, there's plenty of pips to be made in this market.
What are the trading hours of the cryptocurrency market?
Answer
The crypto market is a 24/7 market. The forex market, on the other hand, is a 24/5 market, open from Monday morning in Asia to Friday evening in the U.S.

Do you trade the Aussie and the Kiwi?
Answer
We trade all of the commodity currencies, especially against the U.S. dollar. After all, the AUD/USD and NZD/USD are forex majors. We like trading them and open many trades on them as they are more predictable.
Which is a better indicator, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) or stochastics?
Answer
There is no such thing as a better indicator. There are numerous technical indicators, at least 10 of them are good to use for technical analysis including the RSI and stochastics. We work with the RSI indicator, as we are used to it but this should not detract from the stochastic.
How you would trade the EUR/USD? What strategies would you use? Would you buy or sell?
Answer
We use both technical and fundamental strategies when trading forex pairs. The EUR/USD is the main major pair and it reacts well to fundamental and technical events. So, we combine a number of them from an arsenal of strategies in order to provide the best forex signals for this pair.
Which direction do you think the dollar will go during the next couple of weeks?
Answer
Nothing is 100% certain in the forex market, that’s why it is a tough business. But profits are there to be made if you know how to analyze the markets.
When looking at the higher time frames like the daily and weekly charts, the U.S. dollar is trending lower against most of its major counterparts. Consequently, the U.S. Dollar index is in an established downtrend.
As long as this index remains below certain important moving averages (e.g. the 200-day moving average), there is no reason to fight the prevailing downtrend. An important support level has also been broken on the U.S. Dollar index late in 2017 and this same level could act as resistance in the near future.
The most probable market direction for the dollar is lower and hence we remain bearish going into 2018.
What is the best way to trade bitcoin?
Answer
As with most cryptocurrencies, bitcoin has been in a long-term bullish trend since the start. The trend has been getting stronger, so the way to trade bitcoin is to go long with minimal leverage. I would suggest you wait for a decent pullback and then open a buy trade in bitcoin
What is blockchain? How does it work and why is it so important for cryptocurrencies?
Answer
A blockchain is a public distributed digital ledger which keeps account of transactions in a decentralised fashion. The ledger is updated in real-time and all parties have a copy of this ledger. Cryptocurrency transactions are grouped together in blocks and added to the blockchain chronologically. Entries in the blockchain ledger cannot be altered retroactively because it would necessitate all the subsequent blocks to be altered and would require the cooperation of the different parties in the network.
With these aspects in mind, blockchain technology is an excellent solution to facilitate the decentralized, peer-to-peer nature of numerous cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin.
What is the best approach for trading cryptocurrencies? Which strategies you can recommend?

It’s really important to know that unleveraged crypto trading is your safest option.

Making money as a day trader can be challenging. Nevertheless, there are day traders who make money with different trading techniques, trading signals, and technical indicators. Day traders many times trade instruments with dense liquidity and high volatility to make the most of their trades (which are held for less than one trading day). Algorithmic trading may greatly increase a day trader’s effectivity because of much faster reaction times, execution precision, and the ability to control positions on (and analyse) hundreds of financial instruments simultaneously.
How much is a pip in forex trading?
Answer
In forex trading, a pip is one basis point (0.0001) of the base currency of a currency pair.
  • The base currency is the first currency in a currency pair, for example, EUR in the EUR/USD pair.
  • A basis point is one-hundredth of one percent, which is one 10,000th (1/10,000).
On the EUR/USD, one pip is worth 0.0001 euro. In a EUR/USD price quote, a pip is found in the fourth decimal place: 1.24389. On the USD/JPY, one pip is worth 0.0001 U.S. dollar and is found in the second decimal place: 108.655.
What are pips in forex trading?

How to trade bitcoin.
Answer
When trading bitcoin, many of the traditional trading techniques and technical analysis tools may be used. Because bitcoin is traded by humans and by human-built trading robots, its price action often reacts similarly to traditional financial instruments like forex, commodities, and stocks. (Human psychology creates the same price action patterns across different asset classes). Therefore, with-trend trading, breakout trading, swing trading, candlestick trading, etc. can be successfully used to trade bitcoin. Traders with a thorough understanding of bitcoin’s fundamental aspects also use it to profit from bitcoin trading.

What is bitcoin?
Answer
Bitcoin is a digital or virtual currency that is created (mined), stored, traded, and transferred electronically. Bitcoin transactions are recorded in a public decentralised ledger which is powered by blockchain technology. Bitcoin allows individuals and corporations to send and receive global payments rapidly and at a very low cost, provided that fiat currency needn’t be exchanged for bitcoin first.
What is blockchain?
Answer
Blockchain technology is a clever way to keep a record of financial transactions and other processes. A blockchain, like the one which the Bitcoin network is built upon, is a decentralised public ledger in which every single bitcoin transaction is recorded in a chronological way. As transactions are finalised, they are grouped together in a block and linked chronologically in the blockchain. When transactions and blocks are completed, time-stamped, and added to the blockchain, they cannot be altered retrospectively.
What is cryptocurrency?
Answer
A cryptocurrency is a digital currency which is usually managed by decentralised blockchain ledger technology and employs encryption techniques to regulate and keep account of transactions. Where a cryptocurrency is mined or created, its creation is usually also regulated by its encryption technology.
What is Ripple?
Answer
Ripple is a network that facilitates fast money transfers (it takes less than 4 seconds to complete an international transfer). Its associated cryptocurrency (or digital coin) is also called ripple (XRP).
How to trade cryptocurrency.
Answer
Because of the crypto market’s immense volatility, the safest way to trade it is with zero leverage. The cryptocurrency market often displays the same type of price action which may typically be found in other markets like the forex, commodities, and stock markets.
Therefore, the different market conditions in the crypto market are likely to be successfully traded by using certain ‘traditional’ technical trading techniques and indicators, as long as provision is made for the crypto market’s elevated volatility.
Another way to trade cryptocurrencies is to use FX Leaders’ crypto trading signals which are reliable and easy-to-use.
Where can I find information about the best daily opportunities?
Answer
There are a few good options: a great source can be your Forex trading platform. Some online trading platforms, like eToro, FXCM and 4XP provide their customers with great learning centers, Forex forums, market news, information on how to invest, daily tips on investment opportunities and more. Plus500 is another online trading platform that provides efficient information for beginners.
Forex forums, blogs and portals like FXMarketLeaders, are great opportunities to follow the hottest trends. Forexpros is one of the largest, most popular online portals. Follow the news on a daily basis to spot new opportunities and to see which foreign currency is gaining strength and which markets are down.
Stocks and currencies on the same platform?
Answer
If I decide to trade stocks (like buying facebook options), is it recommended to do it on the same platform where I trade currencies? Because someone told me it might be better to separate them, but I don’t see why. I trade with avafx. Thank you.
You are right my friend, stay with the platform you are used to, especially if you are happy with it. AvaFX are doing a great job with all of their platforms, both on currencies and other markets like stocks and goods.
Is your signals system automated?

How much money should I begin trading with?
Answer
I deposited $50 a few days ago, but my account manager recommended that I start with at least $500 for a smart investment in a foreign currency. What would you recommend?
$50 might be ok for a small test but it is not a smart investment. With a basic calculation you can see that even with 100% profit within 6 months it's not worth your time. I would recommend starting with a few hundred dollars on a low leverage. For optimal trading I would have an initial equity sum of a few thousand dollars in my account, again, low leverage is the key to achieving the best online investment.
What is a better trading strategy, scalping or day trading?
Answer
We recommend day trading, but it doesn’t mean that it is the best trading system. In our opinion three to five trades a day are enough to meet our targets, making high profits and fantastic returns on my investments. In our opinion Scalping demands too much time, as I only spend 4 hours trading in front of my 3 computer screens. Sometimes I sin, being tempted for a couple of hours. Swing trading is one of my favorite strategies, and I use it very often.
Trading before or after announcements?
Answer
I want to trade the Interest rate announcement. Should I place my trade before the event or just after? I know some traders that claim that before is better, and some say that I need to wait a bit after. What is your opinion on this please?
High-risk loving traders have a habit of placing positions just before the announcement is made to try and hit the jackpot, but is actually much more sensible to wait for a few minutes after the announcement and try to ride the market trend as it takes place. Bottom line, I prefer to play it on the safe side, and join the market trend, than to bet on it.
Short term trading or long term trading?
Answer
It really depends on which strategy you choose to use. Short term trading involves more time, that's usually true. In order to trade Forex you need to analyze the charts, follow the economic calendar, look for the best market opportunities and plan your moves. It can take an hour to a few hours a day. Long term trading demands less involvement, especially if you trade on a single currency pair, or a single open position.

Signals Sources
Answer
Hi team. Just wondered what is your opinion on combining more than one signals source in my trading. Is it a good idea?
Hi there. In fact, every action that can reduce your risk and spread your trades can be good, but the key thing for you is to check the quality of both of the sources you wish to use (follow their P&L reports, try them on a demo account for a couple of days).
Risk Level?
Answer
I started trading a couple of days ago, and i'm not sure about the level of risk i should take when opening my trades. Does 50 times leverage sounds ok? Can i trade with a higher leverage?
Choosing a proper level of risk is one of the most important issues when trading Forex. x50 is considered as a relatively high leverage, but if you are in favor of high risk vs. high profits, it can lead to very nice profits in a short time. My advice is to start with a lower leverage, say, x10.
When is the best time to trade?
Answer
Hello, I want to know how many signals you upload in an average day? And, what are your busiest hours?
It really depends on the market, the trading activity over the specific day, and on our trading sources. On average, our system opens 3-6 signals per day, most of them are intraday signals.

Answer
Hi. I opened a trading account with Plus500 and funded it with 500 Euro. Now, every time i want to open a trade, I need to decide on the amount which i wish to trade with. Can you please advise?
Our advice is to trade with not more than 10% of your total per a single trade (5% is even better), in order to lower your risk in case of losing.
Forex vs Options alerts
Answer
Hi guys. i trade binary options, and i came through your forex alerts service the other day. Firstly, good job! Secondly, I wonder if it is advised to use these signals for options trading as well. I have tried it a couple of times, but I don't know if i was lucky, or if it is actually works on high/low trades.
Good question. Our signals are designed for trading Forex, offering Stop Loss and Take Profit targets. Trading High/low, as well as other classic binary options trades, you need to point the direction in a specific time frame, which makes it a bit different, as the alert doesn't indicate on time-frames, but in many cases, one can learn a lot on the predicted direction from the data of the alert, and open a position according to this data. We have many followers from the binary options world, so i can only assume that they are happy with this service.
Can I use FX Leaders signals for Binary Options?
Answer
The signals are targeted for forex trading, but they can be used for trading binary options as well. An active signal shows a direction, a forecast, and so are options positions. Our short term signals are based on 15min and 30min charts.
What Binary Options company would you recommend?
Answer
The signals are targeted for forex trading, but they can be used for trading binary options as well. An active signal shows a direction, a forecast, and so are options positions. Our short term signals are based on 15min and 30min charts.
We can recommend on 24option , which in our opinion is a great options company in the market, and we have had a great trading experience with them.
How do I set my Take Profit Target?
Answer
I see that you show 2 targets for each trade. Please advise which is better? I don't know whether to aim for the first take profit or the second. Please!
I prefer going for the first target, 'Take Profit 1'. Maybe it leads to smaller profit per trade, but on the long run it involves much lower risk, and solid earnings.
What are the most commonly traded pairs?
Answer
The most traded popular pairs to trade by our signals system are the euro-dollar (EUR/USD) and the pound-dollar (GBP?USD). Other popular pairs are the US dollar-Canadian dollar (USD/CAD) and the dollar-Japanese Yen (USD/JPY).
What body is more influential, the FED or the ECB?
Answer
The FED is the U.S. central bank, and the ECB is the European central bank, so they are both the most influential banks in the world, and it is really not cool to compare between the two. The only thing that I can say is that being the strongest, most stable economy in the world, every economic decision taken on its currency by the FED has a major impact on all of the other economies and currencies as well.
What is the best Forex Course in the market?
Answer
I'm looking for a forex course. I'm new to forex, and don't want a too long, or too sophisticated book. I have tried all sorts of introduction guides and tutorial videos of a few brokers such as FXCM and Fxpro, but they all look the same- very generic or hard to understand. Any recommendations?
Well, first, it is needless to say that the FX Leaders Forex Trading Course is the best forex course for beginners. I assure you that you will get all the tools needed in order to become a successful trader, and the best thing about it is that it is planned in a way that one weekend is enough to go through the whole course and start trading on your own.
What is a better indicator, the RSI or Stochastic?
Answer
There is no such thing as a better indicator. There are 26 technical indicators, which at least 10 of them are great and efficient for technical analysis, both of these two are among them. Plus, both of them are kind of similar. For me personally, I prefer working with the RSI indicator, maybe because I am used to it.
Fibonacci Level
Answer
I like working with Fibonacci retracement, but I never know when to open or close my trade, 50% or 61.8%? Please advise
There is no magic solution my friend, or a single level that works more than the other. Investors need to follow the trends, watch the chart and look for the right retracement. There are three more popular levels: 61.8%, 50% and 38.2%, but which one to choose? Cannot help with that.
Dollar vs S&P500
Answer
Thanks for your service. It's great stuff! I have read an article claiming that the dollar always goes the opposite way than the S&P 500 index. I checked last year's chart if both if them, and it looks correct. Is it always like this?
Usually it is. There is a strong negative correlation between the two throughout the history, and there are logical reasons for this. You can read more in this article about the correlation between the dollar and the S&P 500.

Trading u.s. dollar - h.k. dollar?
Answer
Not sure about taking a risk on exotic pairs like USD/HKD. I read in some post that the spreads on them are just too high, and that it is risky, but I noticed that some of these pairs could have made a good profit for investors who took the risk. What do you think? Is it a good time to trade exotic currency pairs?
In order to trade exotic pairs you should notice that most of the online Forex platforms charge higher spreads than on the majors or the cross currencies. Exotic pairs also usually less volatile, and traded In lower volumes than the majors. But, on the other hand, if you are familiar with a particular exotic currency or its fundamentals, it might be a good idea to invest in it, especially now, when some of the exotic pairs become more and more popular to invest in.

Which Forex strategy is better; short term strategy or long term strategy?
Answer
Both are good. Long term trading strategies are recomended for fundamental trading, using large investments and low leverages. You will need to have some trading experience. You will also need to be very patient, have a deep understanding of the economic contidions in the global markets and believe in your positions. Short term trading involves more positions, a higher potential for fast profits, more action, but also higher risks. Short term trading is based more on technical analysis and chart patterns. Beginners usually prefer short term strategies.
Small deference with live rates
Answer
I am using the signals while trading with AVAFX. The rates in your site are a bit different from the ones in AVA. Which rates do you recommend i use?

You can use either our rates or AVA's, it does not matter (the rates are practically the same).
Gold or currencies?
Answer
There have been many articles lately about how the last few months have been very good for trading gold. What do you think? Can you give some tips about how to trade gold?

How much to invest? Need your help!
Answer
I read an article in a Forex blog which claimed that the only way to make fast money, or to make large profits is to trade with large accounts of between $5,000 - $10,000.

How much money to invest depends a lot on your Forex trading strategies. The foreign exchange market allows you to leverage your capital, but it also increases your risk. So the most important question should be how much you are willing to risk. To get to the point: Opening an online trading account with $10,000 is optimal if: 1. you can afford to lose this amount. 2. You have a little experience with fx trading. 3. You have an idea which Forex trading strategies you want to use. Trading foreign currency with $1,000- $5,000 will also offer you lots of investment opportunities. Beginners and small time traders should start with $500-$1000. The good news about the foreign exchange market is that almost any amount of investment is enough to profit from fx trading, even $100.

How many pips away from my entry price would you recommend to set a stop loss?
Answer
If trading on the majors, looking for low to medium risk, using technical analysis, 30-50 pips distance is a good distance (for short term trading). Longer terms usually require a larger range. But it is important to understand that it should be affected by other parameters as well, such as the support and resistance levels, trend's highs and lows, your money management, etc. It is advised to move your stop loss forward, as your position gets more profitable.

Dealing desk or no dealing desk services?
Answer
I have read that the best investment companies are "No Dealing Desk" ones. What do you think?
There are fantastic NDD companies, as well as DD ones. I personally prefer NDD brokers, but it depends. Not every NDD broker is the best investment company. FXCM and eToro are two of the best investment companies in the industry, offering NDD services. There are some brokers who serve both as Dealing Desk and No Dealing Desk, so you should be aware of this. You wouldn't want to trade with brokers who are driven by double interests.
