In the coming days, we will welcome two important and close collaborators of FXStreet… one, Richard Olsen, in the virtual world (Live Video on Youtube) and the other, Yohay Elam, in the real world (speech in Barcelona).
Richard Olsen – Thursday October 1st – Live Analysis Room
In our Live Analysis Room, Dale Pinkert will interview Richard Olsen, an economic researcher in high frequency finance known as the co-founder and former Chairman of OANDA. He will discuss the blockchain technolog (the distributive ledger technology that underpins Bitcoins), a word that has been in everyone’s mouth in the financial services firms these last months. Does it have the potential to disrupt the industry and affect how Forex traders operate? We’ll hear Richard’s thoughts. We will also talk about his general vision of the future and his new company Lykke whose ambitious project is to create a global FX marketplace, where “traders will be able to trade at ultra-low cost and will not be captive to any one broker. They will be able to transfer their assets at any time”, as he explained to Leaprate in a recent interview. Continue reading Richard Olsen and Yohay Elam to speak at FXStreet

On Thursday July 4, 2014 I had the honor and pleasure to host Alfonso Esparza as guest of the Toronto Forex Group, for a very inspiring, useful and practical presentation. Alfonso is a senior, experienced currency analyst with OANDA and publisher of MarketPulse. As a trader and market analyst I am into using a “modern variation” of Fibonacci to spot areas where participation of widespread classes of algorithms can be anticipated. So although I value fundamental analysis, I rarely make reference to it in my trading, as I find it is very difficult to integrate discretionary tools into my rule-based trading. 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.
We are happy to announce the addition of two new cities to the meetups project: Singapore & Mumbai.
From September, Singapore & Mumbai will be offering a monthly discussion group to share knowledge and experience about trading forex. The FXStreet community is growing fast, as in September we will have 10 meetups around the world! Continue reading The meetup family is growing
In August we keep on doing our monthly meetups in Istanbul and Sydney, a wonderful opportunity to meet other traders and learn more about forex.
From Fibonacci to due diligence, are you ready?
Istanbul – 2nd August – The Fibonacci analysis and the connection with the trader profile
It will be conducted by Ateşhan Aybars and Onur Çakir our host and team leader, about the Fibonacci analysis and trader profile. We will meet at our sponsor’s headquarters XTB for an hour of learning about Forex all together.
Ateshan Aybars is a Turkish economist and TV celebrity, CTA and Biomedical Engineer. He is currently working for BloombergHT as commentator. Together with Onur Çakir they will explore how Fibonacci analysis can be very helpful, whether you are investing in stocks or ETFs, or even daytrading the forex market.
Free registration, via meetup.com and takes less than 1 minute.
“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.
While hundreds of technical indicators exist, and with the potential to adjust parameters to countless options, the importance of having a rules based technical analysis methodology is important, but likely will have difficulty standing on its own without understanding market sentiment and what some of the triggers are for the algorithmic trading systems. 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.
After successful experiences of our Forex Meetups in Barcelona (since March 2013), then London and New York, we’re excited to announce that we’ll host the first meetings of our Forex MeetUp group in Sydney (Australia), Los Angeles (California) and Toronto (Canada) in February. We are making the best efforts to extend our network and make possible for Forex traders to meet and connect in as many cities as possible around the world. The next one should be Los Angeles.
