Swing scalping the next oil wave

Since about one year oil is on the run. It ran down! Now it is oscillating. And that is exactly the market needed for swing trading. To make money we need smooth swings.

crude-20160513

A market suitable for swing traders produces smooth swings. It is swingy. What most see just as a useless tautology is universal wisdom for others. Guess whom these others are, see the weekly chart of oil above, and spot how easy swing trading could be:

  • Use the weekly or daily chart
  • Have a tight stop and honor it
  • Wait for a reversal bigger than earlier ones that failed
  • Switch your existing or open a new position
  • Relax and ride the next wave

Simple, and it works.

How to trade oil conveniently?

With CFDs! They offer leveraged trading and with the right broker (ETX) you can trade thousands of markets worldwide from one single account.

Stocks, indices, metals, currencies, commodities, energy… They have it all, even the sea of oil for the swing surfer!

ETX = analytical platform + tight spreads + global markets

Bitcoin prepares for the next moon shot

After the explosive peak at the end of 2013 bitcoin languished for most of the time. But now it seems to come back! The last weeks brought something like a breakout of a base that formed loosely after bitcoin draw renewed interest half a year ago. The reasons? Bitcoin is a new market and it […]


The Bitcoin miracle

One of the most stunning examples of lofty valuations with reminiscences of the tulip mania is Bitcoin. Below is the Bitcoin chart of the last 5 years. Bitcoin made an incredible run and went from 5 cent to over $1000 in a little more than three years. Every white dot of the vertical scale marks […]


Bitcoin is ready to restart

Bitcoin, the miracle from the cyberspace, may see new highs. Let’s have a look at the remarkable chart that shows an advance from $5 to over $1000 in less than two years. Yesterday Bitcoin managed to get over $400 again and this long-term chart looks as if it were ready for more. Why? During the […]


Bitcoin is warming up for new highs

During the last month a fallen angel has started to rise again: Bitcoin. What actually is the fuel behind the move? As usual with Bitcoin, nobody knows for sure. One month ago the Bitcoin exchange Gemini of the Winklevoss twins came alive. Perhaps this is seen by the market as a precursor of their planned […]


The German Bunds crash

German Bunds are the short of a lifetime, according to Bill Gross, the bond guru. He seems to have called the very low on April 21 (red circle) of the 10yr Bunds as seen here in the daily yield chart. Did he? Or did he rather influence the market with his opinion? In any case, […]


How low will the euro go?

What is Zen trading? It is trading done the simple way and that means looking for the right trend and finding the right entry spot. Here we have one, the decline of the euro. While the fundamental reason for this steep decline is the current monetary policy of the ECB called quantitative easing, psychological reasons […]


The trend scalper

This site is about true or real trends. There are two types of chart formations that look like trends. Both are trends, but only for the chartist. Beyond that they are different. One has a reason, a driving force, and the other got just created by random market forces. If a trend has emerged just […]


The Zen trader

Our standard method, the trend trading system, is all about trends. It even concentrates on the best of them. Trading like a Zen master is almost the opposite of trend riding. Essentially the Zen trader is going to bottom fish for the momentum stock. Sounds really like Zen… The fishing grounds are the small cap […]


The art of trend trading

Trend trading is easy. Wrong. It looks only to be easy in hindsight. If done right, it can be very lucrative. You can also do it wrong and then it is the opposite. One basic element for all kinds of trend trading is the stop loss. The advanced trend trader tries to enter the steepest […]


The secrets of trend trading

Is there a secret to trading or are there even many secrets? Or is there no secret at all? Naturally this is a difficult question. If the answer were known, the question wouldn’t deal with secrets. So, we have here a conundrum without a definitive answer. It is more a question with various viewpoints as […]
