Asia Fx Traders Risk Disclosure


Trading in the off exchange retail foreign currency market (FOREX) have large potential rewards, but also large potential risk. You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the futures and options markets. Dont trade with money you cant afford to lose. This letter is neither a solicitation nor an offer to Buy/Sell futures or options. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those discussed on this letter. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results. Trading in the off exchange retail foreign currency market (FOREX) is a challenging and potentially profitable opportunity for educated and experienced investors. However, before deciding to participate in the Forex market, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose.There is considerable exposure to risk in any foreign exchange transaction. Any transaction involving currencies involves risks including, but not limited to, the potential for changing political and/or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency.More over, the leveraged nature of FX trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. The possibility exists that you could sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and be required to deposit additional funds to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin call within the time prescribed, your position will be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses. Investors may lower their exposure to risk by employing risk-reducing strategies such as stop-loss or limit orders. But in addition that, you may not imply or infer that stop-loss eliminate or manage risk. Risk with News Trading :- As with all major economic releases there could be significant price volatility with this announcement. Currency spreads will typically widen just before the release and will remain wide for a few minutes after. If the announcement is a shock to the consensus estimate, the price of the currency pair could gap significantly. For example, the price on the EURUSD trading at 1.2820 - 1.2822 just before release could gap up 60 pips to 1.2880 - 1.2882, without any available prices available between the price of 1.2820 and 1.2882. A Buy Stop placed before the announcement at 1.2830 would turn into a Market Order and would be filled at the prevailing price 1.2882. The same would be true with a Sell Stop.Approximately four years ago we saw a gap of approximately 200 pips on the GBPUSD on a Non-Farm Payroll announcement. While this is an extreme example, this is what is possible with trading during economic announcements. Basically, plan on the spreads widening and if you are trading with a Buy or a Sell Stop entry order, do not anticipate being filled at your entry price. You will be filled at the prevailing market price after the release, and this market price could be significantly different from your desired price of your entry order.

Ralph Nelson Elliott (1871 1948)

Crowd behavior trends and reverses in recognizable patterns, that he called waves. These structures link together to form larger versions of the same patterns and how those, in turn, become the building blocks for patterns of the next larger size and so on. In 1938, he coined this phenomenon The Wave Principle. Natures Law The Secret of the Universe

Rules

Of waves 1, 3 and 5, wave 3 can never be the shortest wave. Wave 2 can never retrace more than 100% of wave 1. The end of wave 4 can never overlap the orthodox end of wave 1. Strong Guideline

No portion of wave 4 can enter the price territory of wave 1 or wave 2.

5.00

Guidelines Wave Equality

Two of the motive waves in a five-wave sequence will tend toward equality in time and magnitude. This is generally true of the two non-extended waves. For example, if wave 3 is extended then waves 1 and 5 will tend toward equality.

Equality

5.03

Guidelines Alternation Within Impulse Waves

If wave 2 is a sharp correction, expect wave 4 to be a sideways correction, and vice versa. Sharp corrections never include a new price extreme. Example: Zigzags Sideways corrections usually include a new price extreme. Examples: Flats, Triangles, and Combinations Diagonal triangles do not display alternation in subwaves 2 and 4.

Guidelines Alternation Within Corrective Waves

If a correction begins with a flat a-b-c structure for wave A, then expect a zigzag a-b-c structure for wave B, and vice versa. If a large correction begins with a simple a-b-c zigzag for wave A, wave B will stretch out into a more complex a-b-c zigzag.

Guidelines Volume
Waves < Primary Degree Normally, 3rd wave volume > 5th wave volume 5th wave volume > 3rd wave volume = 5th wave extension Waves > Primary Degree Higher volume in 5th waves All-time high volume at terminal points in bull markets

Volume often spikes briefly at the throw-over point of a parallel trend channel line or a diagonal triangle resistance line. Volume contracts in corrective waves.

Summary

Two motive waves in a five wave sequence will tend toward equality. If the second wave is sharp, then the fourth wave is usually sideways, and vice versa. Corrective waves usually end in the span of the previous fourth wave of one lesser degree. Impulse waves tend to be bounded by a channel composed of two parallel lines. A throw-over/throw-under occurs when wave 5 terminates beyond the trend channel. The post-triangle thrust measurement estimates price target for the next wave in the pattern of one larger degree.

Summary

The Fibonacci Ratio (), an irrational number approximating .618, known as the Golden Ratio, is found in nature, human biology, human thought, and aggregate human behavior such as the stock market. The Wave Principle is a robust fractal governed by Fibonacci mathematics. Sharp wave corrections tend to retrace 61.8% or 50% of the previous wave. Sideways corrections tend to retrace 38.2% of the previous wave. Subdivisions of impulse waves tend to be related by Fibonacci numbers .618, 1.0, 1.618 and 2.618. Subdivisions of corrective waves tend to be related by Fibonacci numbers .382, .618, 1.0 and 1.618.
