My boyfriend is starting Forex. I think it’s a “get rich quick scheme”. Please teach me about the reality of it.
Hi. So I like to call myself a big skeptic of all things “get rich quick”. I’ve always hated MLM’s and other sorts of marketing businesses. I’ve seen many people and heard many stories of people losing thousands and I’ve always been super skeptical about them. However, my boyfriend, let’s call him Cody, has become interested in Forex. He has been a partner with Primerica for a while now but hasn’t done anything with that. He is a manager at a gym here and makes decent money from that. He was approached by a friend to start working with Forex. When I heard about this, I was shocked, just because I’ve heard horror stories about Forex. When I look up reviews online, all I see is people losing money. When I spoke to his friend to see what this is all about, all I got was attacked and hated on for being a “non-believer”. He essentially just said that people who lose money are lazy and don’t even try. I am genuinely curious in learning more and want to be more educated in this. From what I’ve read, it depends a lot on gambling and knowing a lot about the craft. Cody is convinced he will earn $40,000 (approximately) by February doing 6% everyday excluding weekends (I have no clue what that means but I know that’s what he’s doing). I want to know if and how this is actually a legit endeavor or if he’s just delusional. Please, no attacks, I want serious, informative answers. Thanks so much. TL;DR: my bf is starting Forex and I think it’s a scam, how legit is it? Edit: I told him that if he actually does make that $40,000, I’ll apologize for my skepticism and not question this typa shit anymore. We’ll see 🤷🏼♀️ Edit: He works all day with no break and gets home at 11-12 and gets EXHAUSTED. He goes to sleep at like 1 every night and spends that free time watching tv. Nothing wrong with that I just don’t see how he has time to do this stuff. From what I’ve gathered, this has to be done in the afternoon and takes a while. Update: So I spoke to him and mentioned all the advice y’all have given me here. He said he is already doing research but he’s down to join an MLM. He says “everything is an MLM, college, businesses, everything”, which is ridiculous to me but ok. I’m scared for him but I guess there’s not much I can do. He’s writing all this advice off as idiots that had a bad experience even though most people here have said that they have had ups and downs. He also says I’m being super negative and the least bit supportive. Idk what to do😕
How much capital do you need to make a living off Forex?
I started trading and I am about a month in, but before I continue I have to know if this game is too rich for my blood. So far I heard you need $25-100k to really make a living. I’m only really willing to put in 6k. Edit: I currently would need a little less than 2k a month to live off and then some change for growth.
Blowing my account multiple times and and losing thousands of dollars has taught me more than any forex course I’ve taken
Unless you’re the second coming of Warren Buffet you are GOING to lose money(shit he probably even lost a lot of money before being profitable). But when you lose money always remember what you did wrong and never make that mistake again. The more failures you have in this market the more knowledge you will have. Eventually you will lose so much you start being profitable because you learn how to avoid all the mistakes that made you lose money. Don’t be scared man risk what you can and go for it.
So I am a new mom, and have been both dreading and looking forward to the moment the MLM huns find me. But last night, IT HAPPENED. A boss babe from forex slid into my dms. So now, I am asking for help. How should I respond!!
prvo, namerno ne kacim na finansije jer mislim da je bitna tema ovako Ovo pisem em kao upozorenje na neki nacin, em za diskusiju. Znaci, svi mi znamo za prevaru sportskih dojava. 'Ee buraz imam dojavu za namestenu utakmicu sveeeeee garant prolazi 100% samo mi daj 5 soma'. Mada to nije tema danas. Danas zelim da pomenem tzv. Forex Grupe, koje prodaju servis za forex trejding, u glavnom 'analitike' ili 'signale'. Sta je forex? Forex, znaci foreign exchange, je trziste valute. Tu mozete da trugjete valutama, kao na primer u menjacnici, ili da se kladite na kurs preko CFD ugovora, kao ovi 'forex experti' sa instagrama. Naravno, teoretski moze da se zaradi dosta, ali vecina spekulatora gubi pare. Ovaj klip objasni forex skroz ok. i dosta je lik spomenuo o ovoj prevari. Jedino sto se ne cuje bas lepo, ali sustinski je sve ok. U cemu je fora? Provajderi za te forex signale, najpopularniji u Srbiji je Lule, Luka Bijelovic, (@lulepljugica) vole da prikazuju sve od skupih auta, do lepih devojaka, puno novcanica i mnogo toga sto prosecan covek zeli. Sada, koliko toga je stvarno istinito prikazano, odluclite sami. Oni guraju ljude, koji su cesto maloletni, a nemaju obrazovanje i znanje za forex spekulaciju, na veoma rizicnu spekulaciju. Pritom nisu prijavljeni, ne placaju poreze, sve je veoma 'fishy'. Sada, zato ti signali nisu u redu? Investopedia ima stranicu o tome. U kratko, statistike kazu da veliki broj ljudi (negde oko 90%) gubi pare na forexu. Znaci niko ne moze reci sta ce da se desi sa kursom. Ni ja, ni ti, ni banke. Ja iskreno mislim da je ovo veoma problematicno, i da drzava mora nesto da uradi. Sta mislite o ovome? Jel znate nekoga sto je pao na ovako nesto? Jel poznajete nekoga iz te price?
I am new here. and also still new in trading.. well to say how far I have gone I have lost USD1200 so far from trading. i'm in my late 20s and getting bothered about having a consistent income/cashflow. My question is whether it is possible to earn a living only from trading ? for a very long time I stopped the regular job. nearly 6 years, been hustling since I was 15+ on monthly wages, been able to save up a decent amount of money with properties here and there. Yup have some money stashed up in the bank, and getting less than 1% yearly while spending more than I'm getting now. I do not' see myself going back to 6-5 jobs ever again. At this point of my life I want a cash flow. There are 131k traders here. I believe there are more than a handful of you who can give me a good answer and a sound advise/ or guidance on how to go about it. thanks
Is forex tick data streamed from one broker enough to gauge an approximation of the "real volume"?
Forex is decentralized so it's very hard to gauge the real volume of the pairs. I can't imagine streaming tick data from multiple major forex brokers to aggregate their data just to determine the volume. It'd be too much work for an individual trader like me, and too much work for my computer, too. So I was instead thinking of using the tick data streamed from the one broker that I'm using to derive approximate volume, which I hope will be close enough to the actual volume. I thought of a few ways to use the tick data streamed from my broker's MT4: A. calculate the sum of the number of ticks from a given time window (ex: number of ticks from the last 30 seconds) B. calculate the sum of the "Volume" values of the ticks from a given time window (in this case, the "Volume" means MQL4's built-in variable Volume, not the actual volume) And then do some further calculations, such as generating moving averages on A or B. One possible problem that will probably degrade the quality of the above calculations would be that MT4's EA can drop newer ticks if the previous onTick() event is still running when the newer ticks arrive. I am not using any live data yet. Currently, I'm only using historical tick data downloaded from truefx.com and histdata.com to do my back tests; both websites' tick data seem to be good enough for me. Has anyone used tick volume from a single data source to derive approximate volume with acceptable level of accuracy successfully? How reliable is my method of gauging forex volume?
i'm new in this forex stuff (not even starting yet) & first time visiting Forex. But i've read that forex basically gambling (guessing either it goes up or down, and you got previous data as reference). I'm also read about foolproof gambling tricks that works in real life roulette. Basically it goes like this :
bet $1 on red - if you win, repeat step 1.
if you lose, bet $3. if you win, repeat step 1.
if you lose again, bet $6. if you win, repeat step 1.
if you lose again, bet $14. if you win repeat step 1.
if you lose again, bet $31. if you win, repeat step 1
so, can this be apply on forex trading? (there's lot ads about forex trading apps, thinking to try it) can't profit big, but seem cant lose either. might be a good strategy. any thought? edit 1 : what i mean in this forex is binary options, which some forex trading apps operates. edit 2 : it takes 5 unlucky trading before $55 account blown off. is that really common to get 5 unlucky trading in a row? edit 3 : here's the math (cnp from reply) some forex apps (like expert option or olymp trade) operate on binary option (this is unregulated securities?) where usually they give 80% return on trade. the math goes like this :
$1 trade and win = $0.80 profit
lose then $3 trade and win = $2.4 - $1 (lose) = $1.4 profit
lose then $6 trade and win = $4.8 - $4 (lose) = $0.8 profit
lose then $14 trade and win = $11.2 - $10 (lose) = $1.2 profit
lose then $31 trade and win = $24.8 - $24 (lose) = $0.8 profit
profit means got back your initial too
edit 4 : some reply said **binary options type forex trading apps** are scam & fraud. bummer. maybe trading via smartphone isnt easy as i thought. edit 5 : still, add some ability to reading indicator & chart could help avoiding 5 unlucky trading in a row. damn, if i'm a programmer, i'll make a trading bots based on this idea xD
To the noobs - I'm a seasoned Forex trader. Today I didn't follow my strategy, and got my teeth kicked in for it. Follow your strategy.
Title pretty much explains it. You have to have discipline. Follow your strategy to a t. Cross that t and dot those i's, too. The "setup" I was looking at looked great, but it's one I never trade; a breakout and retest. "This is a perfect setup - the yadda broke the yadda resistance, and the weekly highs yadda!" I thought to myself. You know the drill. Sure I don't trade that way, but a lot of successful people do! I totally won't get bootyraped on this trade! Well, I might as well have flushed money down the toilet the second I hit the buy button. It's something I haven't done in years, and feel like a moron for it. So this is me venting, but also some advice - if you don't have discipline, you won't make it in this game. Discipline, discipline, discipline.
Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted
In my exploration of the world of big data and I became curious about tick data. Unfortunately, market data is almost always behind a paywall or de-sampled to the point of uselessness. After discovering the Dukascopy API, I knew I wanted to make this data available for all in a more accessible format. Over the course of a few months, I downloaded, cleaned, parsed, and compressed over a decade of Forex tick data on 37 currency pairs and commodities. Today I am happy to finally release the final result of my work to the DataHoarder community!
The data was collected from https://www.dukascopy.com/ via a public API that allows for the download of tick data on the hour level. These files come in the form of a .bi5 file. The data starts as early as 2004 all the way to 2019. These files were decompressed, then merged into yearly CSV’s named in the following convention. “AUDCHF_tick_UTC+0_00_2011.csv” or ‘Pair_Resolution_Timezone_Year.csv’ These CSV’s are split into 3 categories “Majors”, “Crosses”, “Commodities”. Majors, Crosses, and Commodities have had their timestamps modified so that they are in the official UTC ISO standard. This was originally done for a Postgresql database that quickly became obsolesced. Any files that have been modified are appended with a “-Parse”. These timestamps have been modified in the following format. Millisecond timestamps to UTC +00:00 time [2017.01.01 22:37:08.014] -- [2017-01-01T22:37:08.014+00:00] https://preview.redd.it/x6g277skfiu51.png?width=1399&format=png&auto=webp&s=35cd6735c1826424580919ac3377612377a3107c
For those looking to use this data in a live context or update it frequently, I have included a number of tools for both Windows and Linux that will be useful.
The ~/dukascopy/resources/windows folder contains a third party tool written in java that can download and convert Dukascopy’s .bi5 files. I have also included the latest zstd binaries from Zstandard Github page.
Linux is my daily driver in 99% of cases, so I have developed all my scraping tools using Linux only tools. In the ~/dukascopy/resources/linux folder you will find a number of shell script and pyhton3 files that I used to collect this data. There are quite a few files in this directory but I will cover the core ones below.
This file is used to download a single symbol for a single day and then convert and merge all 24 .bi5 files into a single CSV.
This file is used to download a single symbol for a full year and then convert and merge all .bi5 files into a single CSV.
This file contains all the core logic for downloading and converting data from dukascopy.
This tad slow but works well enough. It requires the pandas project and parses timestamps into the UTC ISO standard. This is useful for those looking to maintain the format of new files with the those in this repo, or those looking to use this in a SQL database.
For Canadian Clients of VantageFX (or Canadian Forex Traders in General)
As you likely already know, VantageFX will no longer service Canadians residents as of Nov 30th. This is unfortunate, since VantageFX has done an excellent job serving Canadian clients with higher leverage account options from a well regulated and trusted broker. Through contacts in the industry, we've been made aware of a new retail account offering at Pacific Union. Pacific Union has a good history of servicing institutional accounts and has only just started taking on retail clients, but they are positioned to service the Canadian clients in the space that VantageFX has left behind. Further, we were made aware of Pacific Union first by contacts at VantageFX, and then this recommendation was backed up by a trusted source who works closely with both companies. Again, to be very clear, this post isn't to give undue attention to some random broker.. we are providing this info because Pacific Union is a proper alternative for Canadian based traders that will no longer be serviced by VantageFX. On that note, I've updated the wiki to include Pacific Union Prime - https://puprime.com: Subreddit's Canadian Brokers Wiki Page The only major difference I have noticed so far is lacking MT5, but the word is that Pacific Union will be reviewing MT5 and other enhancements to their offing next quarter after they get past the launch of their retail offering. Key highlights from my perspective:
Up to 500:1 leverage available for Canadians, and while that much leverage may not be needed, even just 100:1 is decent compared to ~33:1 leverage set by IIROC with onshore brokers.
Client funds are segregated at an Australian bank, so you're getting some overlap of Aussie banking / regulatory rules and that's a huge plus when it comes to safety of funds and the finance side of things
No fee on credit card deposits / withdrawals, and no fee on Visa Debit and MasterCard Debit deposit / withdrawals. Transactions are completed within 30 minutes.
No fee on Interac e-Transfer deposits.
Remember, going offshore means you lose CIPF protection on funds, so a well vetted and properly regulated broker is a must! UPDATE #1: Oct 6th: Took this post off sticky and redacted some info as the connection between VantageFX and Pacific Union Prime was not "official". Pacific Union is still a great alternative / replacement for Canadian clients seeing higher leverage accounts and who are no longer serviced after VantageFX left Canada. UPDATE #2, Oct 8th: Adjusted this thread again to best reflect where Pacific Union Prime fits with VantageFX and former Canadian VantageFX cleints.
