But what I and the other several participants have learned from Alfonso at the July meetup is that there can be identifiable market, economic and geopolitical situations, like those developing from social dislocation (the topic of July presentation) that can be analyzed and explained using well defined conceptual frameworks.

FXStreet Meetup in New York about ‘Trading Technically with a Fundamental Edge’

Trading Technically with a Fundamental Edge” is the title of the next Meetup that FXStreet organizes tomorrow, 10th of July in New York.  The guest speaker for this trading group is Edward Moya, Chief Technical Strategist at World Wide Markets. New York Traders Group is lead by Chris Tramount. This session will deal with the hard battle of making money in the forex market for the retail trader.

In this session, Moya will go over what are some of his favorite technical indicators/strategies, understanding market behavior and what big picture fundamental indicators/events he follows.
