Important Information

The largest and most liquid asset markets in the world, forex markets, exist as spot (cash) markets as well as derivatives markets offering forwards, futures, options etc. Participants in these markets use forex to hedge against international currency and interest rate risk, diversify portfolio investments, speculate on economic and geopolitical events that create profit generating opportunities from online trading.

Forex and CFD Brokers offer CFDs (Contracts-for-Difference) that allow investors (traders) to trade online in the price movement of securities and derivatives. Both professional and individual investors can act as speculators and their return on their investment depends on their ability to forecast the future market price move.

Investment Benchmarks and Intraday Trading

By chance, some traders generate large amounts of profit at first. However, generating profit by trading online is a long-term process that must not rely to chance, but to a solid strategy instead. Otherwise it is possible to experience a return on investment below zero, not even positive.

HCPro focuses on a conservative approach when it comes to forming a strategy, since trading online involves high risk of losing capital by default. An alternative investment example would be in Fixed-Income securities, which is paying investors fixed interest payments until its maturity date. For being successful in online trading we have to compare the rate of return (profit) from trading online to a benchmark, a standard against which our performance can be measured.


  Intraday Trading Setup


Intraday Trading: Advantages of the intraday trading include the reduction of certain risks involved from being exposed too long in the market. That is the reason our team prefers intraday trading in order to eliminate the overnight risk, decrease the brokerage commission/spread charge, avoid significant risk involved when keeping positions open during important news announcements and keeping a uniformed record of account history in such a way that would be easy to assess the strategy associated with it.

HCPro Proposed Strategy 1 Introduction

Bollinger Bands HCPro Retracement Strategy (considered “medium risk”)

This strategy is carefully implemented by Human Capital Pro for exploiting market easiness to make profit.

During the periods when the market is unlikely to experience trends, prices to move into one direction significantly, there are opportunities for trading the retracements.

Decision-making in regards to placing a trade during such periods lies on Fibonacci retracement levels and the helpful tool Bollinger Bands.


“Trading retracements can be tricky. The market can be extremely volatile and since you are trading against the market this can lead to failure. Find strong support and resistance levels. They will help you identify the reversals.”

Advantages
  1. Trading that allows trading less lot amount and more number of trades per day.
  2. Reduction of market risk, since the position is not exposed too long in the market.
  3. Eliminates overnight rollover risk (spreads, and thus costs, widen during rollover).
  4. Keeping a uniformed record of account history per trade for trading strategy assessment efficiency.

  Strategy Setup Requirements


Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Expected news announcements are always scheduled prior and set at a specific time. Trade before the major announcements or after when you make sure that you have identified strong support and resistance levels.
  • Make sure to add Fibonacci Expansion right after an important huge move. Identify the levels and forecast where the market will retrace after the move. Bollinger Bands will help in this situation to identify them. The 61.8% retracement is the most probable.
Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Prefer trading to start from the moving average and make sure you are trading WITH the trend when doing so (15 min – 30 min chart preferably). 
  • Same amount of lot size per trade for at least 40 to 50 trades. A sufficient number of observations for statistical purposes and risk management.

HCPro Proposed Strategy 2 Introduction

London HCPro Breakouts Trading Strategy  (considered “low risk”) – long term

This strategy is carefully designed and developed by Human Capital Pro for exploiting market breakouts to make profit. The strategy relies heavily on market volatility since to make profit it is a requirement that prices have to move greatly in one direction. Martingale elements can be used with caution.

London Session is one of the most liquid trading sessions and because of the high volume of buying and selling the transaction costs, such as the price spread, is reduced significantly. However, the most important part is that the market participants during that session are capable of creating trends, moving the market in one direction. That fact makes the London Session strategically important.

After 9:00 to 10:00 am (GMT +2)  finding trends and breakouts is the main objective. Identification of Fibonacci Levels is critical.


“Find out WHEN the largest market participants, huge banks and financial institutions will take decisions to trade and go WITH the market trend formed as a result of their trading activities. Timing matters…”

Advantages
  1. WITH THE MARKET: A strategy following the market trend and, not against it.
  2. Trading that allows trading higher lot amount and less number of trades per day.
  3. Reduction of market risk, since the position is not exposed too long in the market.
  4. Eliminates overnight rollover risk (spreads, and thus costs, widen during rollover).
  5. Less brokerage commission/spread charge.
  6. Keeping a uniformed record of account history per trade for trading strategy assessment efficiency.

  Strategy Setup Requirements


Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Trading takes place only after 9:00- 10:00 am, GMT+2, ( 7:00 – 9:00 am UK Time)  until 11:00- 12:00 am, GMT+2, ( 9:00 – 11:00 am UK Time).
  • Consult the Currency Heat Map for identify currency performance allowing you to chose the correct pair of currencies and place the trade when you expect the price to move rapidly in one direction. If you placed the trade and there is no rapid price movement soon it means is not a breakout.
  • Identify support and resistance levels formed during the night (GMT+2) session (Sydney/Tokyo Session) and the price range associated with those.
  • Don’t trade during news announcements scheduled at an exact time having the sign of “high or medium impact“.
Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Reduce the risk of “no volatility” by trading  when the market is expecting trends > this happens when there are important news and reports announcements scheduled during the day. Prefer trading on Monday to Thursday (if no news on Monday better not to trade Monday).
  • Equal Take Profit and Stop Loss distance. 100-150 points (10 – 15 pips) average earnings/losses per trade > applies for FX based on expected trend move per day.
  • Same amount of lot size per trade for at least 40 to 50 trades. A sufficient number of observations for statistical purposes and risk management.

Introduction

HCPro News Trading Strategy (considered “high risk”)

News trading is considered to be extremely risky due to the unpredictable response of market participants to an important announcement. Rapid price moves, high volatility with ups and downs is possible and anticipated by the professional online trader.

This strategy is designed and developed by Human Capital Pro for exploiting price moves during news announcements to make profit. Decision-making in regards to placing a trade during such events is governed by years of experience in analyzing the relevant risk. Not recommended for novice traders.


“Trading important news announcements involves significant level of risk of loosing capital. The market is extremely volatile and quite unpredictable. Get a professional opinion before doing so from experienced professionals.”    – Marios Kyriakou –

Advantages
  1. With the Market: when trading you should be aiming in  following the market trend forming due to the news in favor of the currency of interest.
  2. High risk  > High reward. Succeeding in opening the position early before the huge market move in one direction will generate relatively significant amount of profits.
  3. Time allocation. The best part about trading the news is that you are not always monitoring the market waiting for opportunities to emerge, 24/7. You are interested only to trade during the specific time news announcements will occur, thus you can more spend time on other interests.

  Strategy Setup Requirements


Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Expected news announcements are always scheduled prior and set at a specific time. Trade AFTER the announcement and not before or else there will be no difference from taking a gamble.
  • Trade “high impact” news only. This are the ones that most probably generate a large market move in one direction.
Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Right after the announcement, WAIT a few seconds or even minutes for the spread to come back to normal. Always monitor the spread (both BID and ASK).
  • Same amount of lot size per trade for at least 40 to 50 trades. A sufficient number of observations for statistical purposes and risk management.
