MACD + ADX Trading Strategy

Author: Andrey Goilov

21.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

The name of the article clearly indicates that the latter is devoted to a strategy that uses two indicators: ADX and the MACD oscillator. To be short, I will be calling it MACD+ADX. Some say that a trend indicator alongside an oscillator is the most efficient combo.

1-adx-1.png


The strategy is meant for day charts of currency pairs, which means less time spent on graphic analysis than with shorter timeframes. Any of these three pair suits the strategy: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD. Experienced investors stick to these ones because majors have more predictable behavior, and tech analysis works much better on them.

In the article I will show you how to combine signals from the two indicators correctly and will reveal some nuances and rules of work by the strategy..

MACD+ADX description

To open a position, start by analyzing the activity of ADX with period 16. Make sure you choose correct settings when adding the indicator to the trading terminal.

Signals in the strategy do not differ from "classic" ADX signals. As you know, the author claims that a crossing of +Di and -Di as it is already gives a market entry signal. For example, if +Di crosses -Di from below, this is a signal to buy, and if -Di crosses +Di from above, this signals to sell.

+Di and -Di show the difference between today's and yesterday's high and low. So in the first case, when +Di goes up, the trend must be ascending because today's highs are higher than yesterday's. Hence, buying is the best option in such circumstances. Meanwhile, when -Di values go down, we can conclude there is a bearish impulse and get prepared for selling.

How to Trade EUR/GBP?

Author: Igor Sayadov

5.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

There are eight currencies in the world, recommended by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for storing gold reserves. They would be:

1. USD – US dollar
2. EUR – euro
3. GBP – Great Britain pound
4. AUD – Australian dollar
5. NZD – New Zealand dollar
6. CAD – Canadian dollar
7. CHF – Swiss franc
8. JPY – Japanese yen.

The pairs constituted by 7 main currencies against the US dollar are called majors: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, USD/CAD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF.

All other pairs traded in Forex that do not include the USD are called cross-rates.

Majors make up for 70% of all daily turnover in Forex; cross-rates make up for the remaining 30%. While among majors, the most widely used is EUR/USD, among cross-rates, EUR/GBP is the most popular one.

This article is devoted to this currency pair, its history and peculiarities, and trading strategies that suit it.

Short history of EUR/GBP

The EUR/GBP pair appeared right after the European Union was formed because it was necessary to establish trade relations between the two largest economies in Europe. Britain entered the EU in 1998, keeping its own currency and credit and monetary policy.

In 2016, the country decided to exit the EU. Brexit, which used to be the main source of talks before the coronavirus, came into force in 2020. Naturally, such dramatic changes affected the cross-rate of EUR/GBP.

On MN, we can see an uptrend coming to an end in 2016 and a consolidation range form at this high until 2020. After Britain signed an agreement about its final exit from the EU, the quotations started a new wave of decline.

gbpusd-2016-2020-1200x561.png


What influences EUR/GBP quotations

EUR/GBP is neutral to the US economy and performs no stunts characteristic of other pairs when some important news in the USA emerge.

This pair mostly reacts to inflation data in the EU and Britain. Also, check the pair when the ECB and Bank of England change interest rates.

As a rule, cross-rates react to such events by long-term trends. So, before such news emerge, single out a consolidation area and wait for exiting these areas by the trend.

What is Depth of Market and How Does It Work?

Author: Victor Gryazin

4.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

What is DOM?

DOM (Depth of Market, a.k.a. Level 2, Order Book) is a list of current orders to sell and buy a certain trading instrument, presented as a handy table. It demonstrates prices that market players offer at the moment. DOM shows the actual balance of sellers and buyers and thus serves a handy instrument for traders and investors.

Stock market, in essence, is an auction in which sellers and buyers participate. For example, you want to buy 10 stocks at a price you set yourself. Your order gets into DOM, and if your price is close to the current market price, a seller will appear quite soon. However, if there are people in the market who want to buy the stocks at a higher price, you will need to wait until their orders are executed.

What does DOM look like?

Classic DOM is divided into two columns: in the left one prices and volumes of buyers (the number of lots) are presented; in the right one there are prices and volumes of sellers. The difference between the nearest orders to buy and sell is the current spread.

Dom-1-443x630.png


The look of DOM depends on the trading terminal you use but general parameters are the same. Normally, orders to sell are at the top and orders to buy are at the bottom. DOM cannot accommodate for all orders placed by buyers and sellers real-time online. Hence, it shows online those orders that are the closest to the current market price.

They are what form the so-called DOM. For example, if DOM is 20*20, the table consists of 20 nearest buy prices and 20 nearest sell prices. This is quite a wide-spread look of DOM that brokers use. However, you can customize it in the trading terminal settings.

Merger and Acquisition: What Are the Types and How Shares React?

Author: Maks Artemov

16.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

No doubt, each investor is interested what happens to the company they put their money in after it goes through a merger or acquisition. What to do, especially with the shares in your portfolio? Most importantly, what profit one will receive after such business events? This article attempts at answering these questions and giving some options of behavior in the case of merger or acquisition.

Company M&A

Merger is a process in which two or more companies take some economic actions to enlarge or expand their business. The abbreviation M&A stands for Mergers and Acquisitions. After the merger, a larger company appears in the market. The aim of the process is to make business more efficient, increase production powers, take over new markets, and create a full or partial monopoly.

Types of mergers

There are two main types of M&A:
  • Friendly M&A happen when two companies agree on mutually profitable conditions and act by the agreement.
  • Hostile M&A happen when the management of the acquired company does not agree with the unprofitable conditions of the merger but usually has no choice. A hostile merger becomes possible when the acquiring company owns over 30% of the company that is acquired. If the former holds the control package of stocks (over 50%), the latter has no chances to oppose the merger.
The influence of M&A on the quotations

Firstly, let us get to know what happens to the shares of merging companies. In most cases, the quotations of the acquired company grow. The reason is a profitable share exchange offer and other bonuses for investors and shareholders.

Normally, the shares of the acquiring company can drop. The reason is increased expenses at the start. After a successful merger and successful reshuffling, the shares recover and start growing.

In certain cases, it so happens that the shares of the companies on both sides start falling after the merger is announced. Usually this happens when investors do not think that the merger is reasonable and see no perspectives.

The opposite can also happen: the shares of both companies grow. This happens when the merger looks promising for all and investors see no bad sides of it.

Bottom line

M&A is a market trade that has both good and bad sides. To make the best of it you need to study and understand all the processes. A good way to do it is to study identical agreements in other companies. This does not guarantee you success yet might give an idea of what will happen and what are the stumbling rocks.

M&A is a complicated process that can take a long time, so be patient and try to avoid emotional decisions.

RoboForex adds over 500 instruments to R StocksTrader, including fractional shares


rf-rstockstrader-updates-112021.jpg


Dear Clients and Partners,

RoboForex updated R StocksTrader, which now offers over 500 new instruments for trading, including fractional shares and CFDs on shares of American, Brazilian, British, and European companies.

Access to trading fractional shares will enable clients to acquire both full shares and "slices" of stocks that represent a partial share. For example, a client can buy 1.5 of an Amazon or Netflix share. Meanwhile, the minimum volume of shares to buy remains the same – 1 share.

Why are fractional shares convenient?
  • Fractional shares cost less than full shares and that’s an excellent opportunity to invest in securities with less money.
  • Fractional shares enable clients to diversify their investment portfolios by acquiring fractional shares of a wider range of companies.

Other updates to R StocksTrader:
  • New CFDs on American, Brazilian, and European stocks, including such popular instruments as Lucid Group Inc (LCID), Rivian Automotive Inc (RIVN), Udemy Inc. (UDMY), and others.
  • 8 additional languages: Danish, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Rumanian, Finnish, French, and Swedish.
  • Improved mobile application: enhanced security, direct access to deposit/withdrawal of funds, and the registration of trading accounts.
Apart from new assets R StocksTrader offers over 12,000 trading instruments for investing, including more than 3,000 real stocks, such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Tesla

We’re always striving to provide quality services and add new instruments and update the platform functionality. Due to this, the commission for trading Stocks and CFDs on stocks has been pushed to competitive levels. Updated commission conditions can be viewed on the "R StocksTrader" page.
