TD Ameritrade, Think Or Swim For Forex? Better than Metatrader 4?

Thinking about switching, anyone use td ameritrade?
submitted by scholargc to Forex [link] [comments]

Second thoughts on using TD Ameritrade as my brokerage for my Roth IRA. Should I switch to Fidelity?

I'm young and new to investing, hoping for some clarity because the more I learn, the more I get paralyzed, thus wasting time. I apologize if something similar has been asked before, but I can't seem answers to my questions.

Months ago, I decided I wanted to open a Roth IRA. I chose to use TDA as my brokerage because of the
I've maxed out my Roth IRA last year and this year, I've been trying to set up a 3-fund portfolio (Total Market, Total International, REIT). [Note: I decided on REIT rather than U.S. Bonds because I am young and feel like I can be aggressive right now and opt for something that pays dividends].
Anyway, I really liked FZROX and FZILX given the zero expense ratios and zero fees. I found out from TDA, however, that these are proprietary funds that can only be bought through Fidelity as a brokerage. I had already purchased FSNRX (a REIT).
My primary goal is to have a diverse portfolio that I can afford. After looking at analyses that people on the web have performed, I see that ER, fees, and other costs outside of purchasing index funds can take a toll in the long term. I hate to see large amounts of money going to fees if there is a cheaper option.
I know FZROX and FZILX don't technically track the indices, but their performance thus far seems comparable to Vanguard's VTSAX and VTIAXI realize that I'd have to open an account with Fidelity, pay a transfer fee with TDA, and wait before I could even use the funds to purchase any index funds through Fidelity.
Before I make any further fund purchases, I want to make sure I am informed.

My questions are as follows:

H1 Backtest of ParallaxFX's BBStoch system

Disclaimer: None of this is financial advice. I have no idea what I'm doing. Please do your own research or you will certainly lose money. I'm not a statistician, data scientist, well-seasoned trader, or anything else that would qualify me to make statements such as the below with any weight behind them. Take them for the incoherent ramblings that they are.
TL;DR at the bottom for those not interested in the details.
This is a bit of a novel, sorry about that. It was mostly for getting my own thoughts organized, but if even one person reads the whole thing I will feel incredibly accomplished.

Background

For those of you not familiar, please see the various threads on this trading system here. I can't take credit for this system, all glory goes to ParallaxFX!
I wanted to see how effective this system was at H1 for a couple of reasons: 1) My current broker is TD Ameritrade - their Forex minimum is a mini lot, and I don't feel comfortable enough yet with the risk to trade mini lots on the higher timeframes(i.e. wider pip swings) that ParallaxFX's system uses, so I wanted to see if I could scale it down. 2) I'm fairly impatient, so I don't like to wait days and days with my capital tied up just to see if a trade is going to win or lose.
This does mean it requires more active attention since you are checking for setups once an hour instead of once a day or every 4-6 hours, but the upside is that you trade more often this way so you end up winning or losing faster and moving onto the next trade. Spread does eat more of the trade this way, but I'll cover this in my data below - it ends up not being a problem.
I looked at data from 6/11 to 7/3 on all pairs with a reasonable spread(pairs listed at bottom above the TL;DR). So this represents about 3-4 weeks' worth of trading. I used mark(mid) price charts. Spreadsheet link is below for anyone that's interested.

System Details

I'm pretty much using ParallaxFX's system textbook, but since there are a few options in his writeups, I'll include all the discretionary points here:

And now for the fun. Results!

As you can see, a higher target ended up with higher profit despite a much lower winrate. This is partially just how things work out with profit targets in general, but there's an additional point to consider in our case: the spread. Since we are trading on a lower timeframe, there is less overall price movement and thus the spread takes up a much larger percentage of the trade than it would if you were trading H4, Daily or Weekly charts. You can see exactly how much it accounts for each trade in my spreadsheet if you're interested. TDA does not have the best spreads, so you could probably improve these results with another broker.
EDIT: I grabbed typical spreads from other brokers, and turns out while TDA is pretty competitive on majors, their minors/crosses are awful! IG beats them by 20-40% and Oanda beats them 30-60%! Using IG spreads for calculations increased profits considerably (another 5% on top) and Oanda spreads increased profits massively (another 15%!). Definitely going to be considering another broker than TDA for this strategy. Plus that'll allow me to trade micro-lots, so I can be more granular(and thus accurate) with my position sizing and compounding.

A Note on Spread

As you can see in the data, there were scenarios where the spread was 80% of the overall size of the trade(the size of the confirmation candle that you draw your fibonacci retracements over), which would obviously cut heavily into your profits.
Removing any trades where the spread is more than 50% of the trade width improved profits slightly without removing many trades, but this is almost certainly just coincidence on a small sample size. Going below 40% and even down to 30% starts to cut out a lot of trades for the less-common pairs, but doesn't actually change overall profits at all(~1% either way).
However, digging all the way down to 25% starts to really make some movement. Profit at the -161.8% TP level jumps up to 37.94% if you filter out anything with a spread that is more than 25% of the trade width! And this even keeps the sample size fairly large at 187 total trades.
You can get your profits all the way up to 48.43% at the -161.8% TP level if you filter all the way down to only trades where spread is less than 15% of the trade width, however your sample size gets much smaller at that point(108 trades) so I'm not sure I would trust that as being accurate in the long term.
Overall based on this data, I'm going to only take trades where the spread is less than 25% of the trade width. This may bias my trades more towards the majors, which would mean a lot more correlated trades as well(more on correlation below), but I think it is a reasonable precaution regardless.

Time of Day

Time of day had an interesting effect on trades. In a totally predictable fashion, a vast majority of setups occurred during the London and New York sessions: 5am-12pm Eastern. However, there was one outlier where there were many setups on the 11PM bar - and the winrate was about the same as the big hours in the London session. No idea why this hour in particular - anyone have any insight? That's smack in the middle of the Tokyo/Sydney overlap, not at the open or close of either.
On many of the hour slices I have a feeling I'm just dealing with small number statistics here since I didn't have a lot of data when breaking it down by individual hours. But here it is anyway - for all TP levels, these three things showed up(all in Eastern time):
I don't have any reason to think these timeframes would maintain this behavior over the long term. They're almost certainly meaningless. EDIT: When you de-dup highly correlated trades, the number of trades in these timeframes really drops, so from this data there is no reason to think these timeframes would be any different than any others in terms of winrate.
That being said, these time frames work out for me pretty well because I typically sleep 12am-7am Eastern time. So I automatically avoid the 5am-6am timeframe, and I'm awake for the majority of this system's setups.

Moving stops up to breakeven

This section goes against everything I know and have ever heard about trade management. Please someone find something wrong with my data. I'd love for someone to check my formulas, but I realize that's a pretty insane time commitment to ask of a bunch of strangers.
Anyways. What I found was that for these trades moving stops up...basically at all...actually reduced the overall profitability.
One of the data points I collected while charting was where the price retraced back to after hitting a certain milestone. i.e. once the price hit the -61.8% profit level, how far back did it retrace before hitting the -100% profit level(if at all)? And same goes for the -100% profit level - how far back did it retrace before hitting the -161.8% profit level(if at all)?
Well, some complex excel formulas later and here's what the results appear to be. Emphasis on appears because I honestly don't believe it. I must have done something wrong here, but I've gone over it a hundred times and I can't find anything out of place.
Now, you might think exactly what I did when looking at these numbers: oof, the spread killed us there right? Because even when you move your SL to 0%, you still end up paying the spread, so it's not truly "breakeven". And because we are trading on a lower timeframe, the spread can be pretty hefty right?
Well even when I manually modified the data so that the spread wasn't subtracted(i.e. "Breakeven" was truly +/- 0), things don't look a whole lot better, and still way worse than the passive trade management method of leaving your stops in place and letting it run. And that isn't even a realistic scenario because to adjust out the spread you'd have to move your stoploss inside the candle edge by at least the spread amount, meaning it would almost certainly be triggered more often than in the data I collected(which was purely based on the fib levels and mark price). Regardless, here are the numbers for that scenario:
From a literal standpoint, what I see behind this behavior is that 44 of the 69 breakeven trades(65%!) ended up being profitable to -100% after retracing deeply(but not to the original SL level), which greatly helped offset the purely losing trades better than the partial profit taken at -61.8%. And 36 went all the way back to -161.8% after a deep retracement without hitting the original SL. Anyone have any insight into this? Is this a problem with just not enough data? It seems like enough trades that a pattern should emerge, but again I'm no expert.
I also briefly looked at moving stops to other lower levels (78.6%, 61.8%, 50%, 38.2%, 23.6%), but that didn't improve things any. No hard data to share as I only took a quick look - and I still might have done something wrong overall.
The data is there to infer other strategies if anyone would like to dig in deep(more explanation on the spreadsheet below). I didn't do other combinations because the formulas got pretty complicated and I had already answered all the questions I was looking to answer.

2-Candle vs Confirmation Candle Stops

Another interesting point is that the original system has the SL level(for stop entries) just at the outer edge of the 2-candle pattern that makes up the system. Out of pure laziness, I set up my stops just based on the confirmation candle. And as it turns out, that is much a much better way to go about it.
Of the 60 purely losing trades, only 9 of them(15%) would go on to be winners with stops on the 2-candle formation. Certainly not enough to justify the extra loss and/or reduced profits you are exposing yourself to in every single other trade by setting a wider SL.
Oddly, in every single scenario where the wider stop did save the trade, it ended up going all the way to the -161.8% profit level. Still, not nearly worth it.

Correlated Trades

As I've said many times now, I'm really not qualified to be doing an analysis like this. This section in particular.
Looking at shared currency among the pairs traded, 74 of the trades are correlated. Quite a large group, but it makes sense considering the sort of moves we're looking for with this system.
This means you are opening yourself up to more risk if you were to trade on every signal since you are technically trading with the same underlying sentiment on each different pair. For example, GBP/USD and AUD/USD moving together almost certainly means it's due to USD moving both pairs, rather than GBP and AUD both moving the same size and direction coincidentally at the same time. So if you were to trade both signals, you would very likely win or lose both trades - meaning you are actually risking double what you'd normally risk(unless you halve both positions which can be a good option, and is discussed in ParallaxFX's posts and in various other places that go over pair correlation. I won't go into detail about those strategies here).
Interestingly though, 17 of those apparently correlated trades ended up with different wins/losses.
Also, looking only at trades that were correlated, winrate is 83%/70%/55% (for the three TP levels).
Does this give some indication that the same signal on multiple pairs means the signal is stronger? That there's some strong underlying sentiment driving it? Or is it just a matter of too small a sample size? The winrate isn't really much higher than the overall winrates, so that makes me doubt it is statistically significant.
One more funny tidbit: EUCAD netted the lowest overall winrate: 30% to even the -61.8% TP level on 10 trades. Seems like that is just a coincidence and not enough data, but dang that's a sucky losing streak.
EDIT: WOW I spent some time removing correlated trades manually and it changed the results quite a bit. Some thoughts on this below the results. These numbers also include the other "What I will trade" filters. I added a new worksheet to my data to show what I ended up picking.
To do this, I removed correlated trades - typically by choosing those whose spread had a lower % of the trade width since that's objective and something I can see ahead of time. Obviously I'd like to only keep the winning trades, but I won't know that during the trade. This did reduce the overall sample size down to a level that I wouldn't otherwise consider to be big enough, but since the results are generally consistent with the overall dataset, I'm not going to worry about it too much.
I may also use more discretionary methods(support/resistance, quality of indecision/confirmation candles, news/sentiment for the pairs involved, etc) to filter out correlated trades in the future. But as I've said before I'm going for a pretty mechanical system.
This brought the 3 TP levels and even the breakeven strategies much closer together in overall profit. It muted the profit from the high R:R strategies and boosted the profit from the low R:R strategies. This tells me pair correlation was skewing my data quite a bit, so I'm glad I dug in a little deeper. Fortunately my original conclusion to use the -161.8 TP level with static stops is still the winner by a good bit, so it doesn't end up changing my actions.
There were a few times where MANY (6-8) correlated pairs all came up at the same time, so it'd be a crapshoot to an extent. And the data showed this - often then won/lost together, but sometimes they did not. As an arbitrary rule, the more correlations, the more trades I did end up taking(and thus risking). For example if there were 3-5 correlations, I might take the 2 "best" trades given my criteria above. 5+ setups and I might take the best 3 trades, even if the pairs are somewhat correlated.
I have no true data to back this up, but to illustrate using one example: if AUD/JPY, AUD/USD, CAD/JPY, USD/CAD all set up at the same time (as they did, along with a few other pairs on 6/19/20 9:00 AM), can you really say that those are all the same underlying movement? There are correlations between the different correlations, and trying to filter for that seems rough. Although maybe this is a known thing, I'm still pretty green to Forex - someone please enlighten me if so! I might have to look into this more statistically, but it would be pretty complex to analyze quantitatively, so for now I'm going with my gut and just taking a few of the "best" trades out of the handful.
Overall, I'm really glad I went further on this. The boosting of the B/E strategies makes me trust my calculations on those more since they aren't so far from the passive management like they were with the raw data, and that really had me wondering what I did wrong.

What I will trade

Putting all this together, I am going to attempt to trade the following(demo for a bit to make sure I have the hang of it, then for keeps):
Looking at the data for these rules, test results are:
I'll be sure to let everyone know how it goes!

Other Technical Details

Raw Data

Here's the spreadsheet for anyone that'd like it. (EDIT: Updated some of the setups from the last few days that have fully played out now. I also noticed a few typos, but nothing major that would change the overall outcomes. Regardless, I am currently reviewing every trade to ensure they are accurate.UPDATE: Finally all done. Very few corrections, no change to results.)
I have some explanatory notes below to help everyone else understand the spiraled labyrinth of a mind that put the spreadsheet together.

Insanely detailed spreadsheet notes

For you real nerds out there. Here's an explanation of what each column means:

Pairs

  1. AUD/CAD
  2. AUD/CHF
  3. AUD/JPY
  4. AUD/NZD
  5. AUD/USD
  6. CAD/CHF
  7. CAD/JPY
  8. CHF/JPY
  9. EUAUD
  10. EUCAD
  11. EUCHF
  12. EUGBP
  13. EUJPY
  14. EUNZD
  15. EUUSD
  16. GBP/AUD

TL;DR

Based on the reasonable rules I discovered in this backtest:

Demo Trading Results

Since this post, I started demo trading this system assuming a 5k capital base and risking ~1% per trade. I've added the details to my spreadsheet for anyone interested. The results are pretty similar to the backtest when you consider real-life conditions/timing are a bit different. I missed some trades due to life(work, out of the house, etc), so that brought my total # of trades and thus overall profit down, but the winrate is nearly identical. I also closed a few trades early due to various reasons(not liking the price action, seeing support/resistance emerge, etc).
A quick note is that TD's paper trade system fills at the mid price for both stop and limit orders, so I had to subtract the spread from the raw trade values to get the true profit/loss amount for each trade.
I'm heading out of town next week, then after that it'll be time to take this sucker live!

Live Trading Results

I started live-trading this system on 8/10, and almost immediately had a string of losses much longer than either my backtest or demo period. Murphy's law huh? Anyways, that has me spooked so I'm doing a longer backtest before I start risking more real money. It's going to take me a little while due to the volume of trades, but I'll likely make a new post once I feel comfortable with that and start live trading again.

FOREX trading on TD Ameritrade

Hi,
I have been trading paper FOREX for a few months now on Think or Swim. When I tried to trade FOREX live, TD Ameritrade said I had to apply for margin and options approval (Options Level 2). I was approved for margin, but got rejected for options level 2. When I asked the rep how I can get the option 2 approval he said I had to complete an options course on their website which will give a certificate. Once I do that I need to reapply, but no guarantee that I will be approved for options level 2. He said I was rejected because of my profile and net value and those things and that I need Options level 2 to even start trading FOREX.
Anyone have this experience with TD Ameritrade? What platforms do you use for FOREX?
Thank you.

Stop Entry (and Stop Loss) triggering from Bid/Ask rather than mid

TD Ameritrade user here. I've been using ThinkOrSwim for quite a while for forex and equities and only just recently branched out to look at other brokers because I've started trading more minors/crosses lately and TD's spreads on those are awful(some are double Oanda's!).
Anyways, one thing that's great about ToS is that you can trigger your stop orders on any price type you'd like: Mark(mid), Bid, or Ask.
I've noticed on every other broker platform(Oanda, IG, Forex.com, so far) that when you set up a stop order - either for entry or loss - it triggers based on the bid/ask price rather than the mid price, so you might enter or exit the trade when the actual price is very different(depending on spread) from where your analysis said you should enter or exit the trade.
It doesn't look like something that can be adjusted in any of their platforms from the settings I could find, and the support reps said it wasn't something they could change.
This seems like a particularly rough problem if you are holding a position past market close - since spreads can double/triple/more during that time. You might get stopped out of a trade without the mid price actually having changed at all.
Has anyone else run into this problem? How do you typically deal with it? Or is this just a cost of doing business and you hope your positions aren't anywhere near your SL at market close/open?

I wanna improve help, please

hey guys, hope you all are doing great, so guys I have just started trading in forex I used to trade stocks on think or swim demo account (never made it to live) I a have reached a point where I am neither losing or making profit but recently I have returned to trade forex, I currently trading Live and lost about 15$ so far anyways my issue is that for some reason... I am buying at the exact point of a trend reversal it's like I am so good at being so damn bad, I cannot explain how but every time I click the buy or sell button whatever am trading shots to the other side without even giving me the chance to make a profit. I imagine if I was a beginner I would lose 5$ and make 1$ or something but I literally don't have the chance to get out with not even a 0.10$ I have no idea what am doing wrong and I wanna improve, I usually trade with the trend and it usually comes back to the price that I bought for after like 2 hours sometimes. also, I have an issue where I am confused about trend direction in different time frames, like when I look at 1 hour chart its obviously a downtrend but when I look at the 1 min its up-trending and I don't know what I should do (most of the times wait and missout on so many trades) I down know what my weakness is please help me improve, thank you for reading

Best Forex Broker for Day Trading?

Best Forex Broker for Day Trading?
I am looking for an alternative to Think Or Swim since they don't offer forex trading in my state. I want to be able to scalp using order templates straight from the DOM. I couldn't find this feature on Forex.com or Oanda desktop platforms which I thought was odd since that is the only way to scalp these markets quickly. I don't have time to type out orders and stop losses I need a quicker way.

Another newb question !

Hey guys ! I was playing around with forex trading last night. I’m using think or swim and the paper money account. I was trying to buy a pair - with a custom bracket. Every time I tried the order wouldn’t go through - no matter where I moved the bracket. If I tried with just the standard oco bracket , it would instantly fill / then sell. When I would try the market buy , it would do it - but then when I tried to set a stop loss ( by right clicking the chart , and selecting sell) it would also close my position. Anyone have a similar experience ? I’m a bit scared to use my real account after seeing this - if it matters , I was trading euusd.
I have one more question. The minimum lot size is 10,000 units. It seems that would subtract around 200 US dollars from my play money. How do you know how much money you are using per trade ? 200,000 ( lot size) only seemed to take around 4600 from the play money account.
Sorry for the newb questions , thanks for the help !

Corretoras Internacionais - qual utilizar?

EDIT FINAL - Boa noite a todos! A minha conta na TD Ameritrade foi aprovada e aberta. O processo foi muito mais rápido do que minhas expectativas.
Solicitei a abertura da conta no dia 07/11/2019, enviei os documentos online através de um e-mail criado em uma plataforma da própria TD (não precisei enviar por FAX, enviei para [international@tdameritrade.com](mailto:international@tdameritrade.com)):

Enviei os documentos pelo e-mail no dia 11/11/2019 e hoje, 15/11/2019, recebi um e-mail que minha conta havia sido aprovada.
O último passo foi ligar para um número da AT&T que redireciona chamadas para alguns números dos EUA. O número que liguei foi 0800-888-8288 (do celular, para fixo é o 0800-890-0288). Após atenderem, você disca o número que quer ligar - no caso, é o número de atendimento internacional da TD: 800-368-3668.
Após esperar (demorou uns 15 minutos), fui atendido e expliquei que abri a conta e precisava de um PIN para acessar a conta. Esse PIN te enviam pelos Correios, mas eu não quis esperar pois demora vários dias. O atendente me passou o PIN, loguei na conta, troquei a senha e o userid, e após responder algumas informações adicionais, estou acessando a plataforma normalmente.
No futuro, caso seja interesse de alguém, providenciarei um feedback sobre minha opinião sobre a corretora. Até agora, após desanimar um pouco com a aparente burocracia para abrir a conta, estou satisfeito pois deu tudo certo.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Bom dia, gostaria de uma opinião ou qualquer comentário que possa agregar com essa decisão.

Vou utilizar a Remessa Online para enviar capital. Meu objetivo é, primeiramente, comprar ETFs de metais e algumas opções derivativas, e, daqui alguns meses, algumas REITs e stocks.

Estou em dúvida entre algumas corretoras, vamos lá:

TD Ameritrade - uma das maiores e mais renomadas, zerou os custos de corretagem recentemente. Parece uma boa opção. O problema é a taxação de 30% do dividendos para os Non US Residents.
EDIT: prós - plataforma sensacional ThinkOrSwim.

Interactive Brokers - também é uma das maiores, as taxas parecem justas ($0.005 por cota e $ 0.7 por opção) e boa plataforma para opções... até agora é minha escolha. O problema dela é o custo de $ 10 caso não opere no mês (ou $ 20 se possuir menos de $ 2000 na conta, que será meu caso).
EDIT: prós - suporte bastante rápido; produtos globais e não apenas americanos - operam ETFs do Reino Unido, como por exemplo os da Irlanda que são 'accumulating', ou seja, não passam pelo processo de cobrança de IR e corretagem na hora de reinvestir pois reinvestem por conta própria e nunca distribuem dividendos.

TastyWorks - parece excelente para operar opções, com uma plataforma muito boa. Entretanto, as taxas não são muito agradáveis.

DriveWealth - é renomada mas achei o site confuso, aparentemente a corretora está se voltando para serviços prestados à outras empresas de investimentos (business to business), para abrir uma conta até onde entendi precisa preencher e enviar um formulário de contato, é algo burocrático e parecem estar deixando o varejo de lado.

Avenue Securities - parece uma boa opção para brasileiros, mas é uma corretora recente (tem pouco mais de 2 anos) e está com alguns problemas com a CVM. Também não tem opções derivativas, então acho que não me serve.
EDIT: prós - sessão de documentos para IR e carne leão, tudo formatado, calculado e com dólar certo. O fundador dela é o Roberto Lee, que fundou a Clear e foi diretor da XP, então já tem muita experiência de mercado. Outra coisa ótima dela é poder transferir valores por TED, como se fosse pra qualquer corretora brasileira. Você pode transferir qualquer valor, não tem mínimo, além disso, o exchange funciona dentro da plataforma, você fica com saldo em reais e converte quando quer para dólar.

Utilizei o site Broker Check e a IAPD da SEC para averiguar a situação legal das corretoras.
Qualquer relato de experiência própria ou prós e contras de alguma dessas corretoras será de grande ajuda para a escolha, e conforme os comentários apareçam, vou atualizando o post com esses prós e contras.
Outras opções vindas dos comentários:- TradeRepublic (Alemanha): 1 euro por operação e sem cobranças adicionais.
- Oanda: mais voltada para trading e Forex.
- DeGiro: corretora holandesa, frequentemente recomendada para europeus.

How would you market this business idea?

Hello everybody, I just made a reddit account (Lost my old login) and this is my first post on this sub, so if I'm breaking any rules that I'm unaware of please let me know! :)
My buddy and I started drafting a business plan yesterday. Initially we were just going to sell his stock / Forex trading strategy that's been making him a killing, but it spawned an entirely new idea. I realize that this idea's success is highly dependent on how we market it, so I wanted to ask the pros what they think. I am entirely open to criticism in any form, but keep in mind that this was literally a two-hour idea and is in its baby stages.
The idea is a free online community for younger people who seek financial literacy/freedom by learning to build passive and portfolio income streams. This community will feature a forum which encourages people to network, work/learn together, and hopefully contribute. We will post weekly market analysis, hot industries, explain this weeks news catalysts (News' effect on markets and how you can capitalize from it), tools and more. We want to break everything down into simple Layman's terms and maintain a laid-back culture since financial freedom is about living how you want to live and not "how you're told" to live.
We additionally want to utilize social media to organize local meetups of young like-minded entrepreneurs, investors, and day-traders alike with the purpose of sharing skills, value, and ideas.
This community will additionally serve as a sales funnel to our premium course on trading that includes personal support, privately coded ThinkOrSwim scripts that scan for potentially profitable trades, etc. This will not be the primary purpose of the community, but a means to generate some revenue in order to sustain growth.
I realize that this industry is cut throat, but I also understand that most paid courses on any form of moneymaking come from "Here in my garage" marketers like Grant Cardone who seem to have more interest in short-term sales of their course than truly making a positive impact and finding success and meaning in helping people. I also think people are waking up to that.

I need exposure to the Argentine Peso

I need to hedge a small amount of US Dollars ($10,000 or less) held in ARS (~600,000 more or less). I can't access NDFs and there is no NDF market (basically) if I could. I don't know a reliable Forex broker who trades ARS (suggestions welcome). Open to all ideas, including continuous conversion of currency at an exchange, Argentine beef futures (is there such a thing?) or other Argentine products, Argentine ETFs on the US market, etc.
Background: American based in Buenos Aires. Access to ThinkOrSwim with US address/phone/ID. Able to open us-based accounts. Cannot use the Argentine banking system without some difficulty. Access to dollar Blue through trusted contacts.
If this question is not smart, please help me restructure it and I will fix it ASAP. Thanks!

Looking to auto trade equities options

Hello. I use TD Ameritrade’s ThinkOrSwim platform to day trade options. I’m looking to automate some of my trading such that my auto trader should automatically place trades with my broker given certain signals (BUY credit spread, SELL Iron Condor, SELL Credit Spread etc).
I tried to search online and this forum but could not find something concrete that’d get me started, so I decided to post this as a question. Please share if you have built or found something that can be used for my needs.
I’d be open to revisit my choice based on the following: 1. Is there better platform out there than TDA that allows for such auto trading to be built and run? I found a few that were Forex and Futures based but not US Equities options
  1. I’d like to build and run it locally but also open to use any cloud based solution if it allows me to shorten my time to market and I can just build my strategies quickly.
Thanks in advance!

Do you need live data to paper trade forex?

Hey everyone. I have been going through the intro, faq and babypips course on this sub but haven’t come across this info yet.
Can you paper trade forex with delayed data ?
As a Canadian I find it difficult to find a platform that has live data paper trading that is free AND real-time. Suggestions are obviously welcome. Only place I have ever paper traded was Think or Swim. Thanks!

How would you market this business idea? (Online Financial Literacy Community)

Hello everybody, I just made a reddit account (Lost my old login) and this is my first post on this sub, so if I'm breaking any rules that I'm unaware of please let me know! :)
My buddy and I started drafting a business plan yesterday. Initially we were just going to sell his stock / Forex trading strategy that's been making him a killing, but it spawned an entirely new idea. I realize that this idea's success is highly dependent on how we market it, so I wanted to ask the pros what they think. I am entirely open to criticism in any form, but keep in mind that this was literally a two-hour idea and is in its baby stages.
The idea is a free online community for younger people who seek financial literacy/freedom by learning to build passive and portfolio income streams. This community will feature a forum which encourages people to network, work/learn together, and hopefully contribute. We will post weekly market analysis, hot industries, explain this weeks news catalysts (News' effect on markets and how you can capitalize from it), tools and more. We want to break everything down into simple Layman's terms and maintain a laid-back culture since financial freedom is about living how you want to live and not "how you're told" to live.
We additionally want to utilize social media to organize local meetups of young like-minded entrepreneurs, investors, and day-traders alike with the purpose of sharing skills, value, and ideas.
This community will additionally serve as a sales funnel to our premium course on trading that includes personal support, privately coded ThinkOrSwim scripts that scan for potentially profitable trades, etc. This will not be the primary purpose of the community, but a means to generate some revenue in order to sustain growth.
I realize that this industry is cut throat, but I also understand that most paid courses on any form of moneymaking come from "Here in my garage" marketers like Grant Cardone who seem to have more interest in short-term sales of their course than truly making a positive impact and finding success and meaning in helping people. I also think people are waking up to that.
My question to you guys' is how would you brand and market this community? How do you get people to sign up to a forum that nobody else is posting on besides the administrators? If you think this is a horrible idea that would never work, why? I just want to hear your thoughts

Why I moved on from Robinhood to a proper broker (and am not looking back)

Hello fellow autists. It has now been around two weeks where I've moved on from Robinhood and am now using a proper broker (TD Ameritrade, using their "Think or Swim" mobile app / desktop app). I had been using Robinhood for about 1.5 years, but didn't realize the vast amounts of benefits you get at a proper broker (described below). I wish someone had told me about all this when I first started trading, so now I'm passing on this knowledge to youuuuuu. Perhaps other brokers have most if not all of these benefits, but I don't got experience with them.
Combine having “unlimited” day trades with seeing proper indicators on a chart . . . and you can do my new day trading strategy of buying a few options when you see a setup occur (such as a stock going below the low of the day, or buying after it breaks the 200d ma). Then when the price hits a resistance point (such as the pre market highs), you can sell 50-75% of the contracts and lock in profits. Then you can add to your positions on pullbacks or just let the rest ride.
You can also link all of your accounts... And then trade with them all at once. So in a few clicks I can take a single trade that gets executed on my day trading account, my Roth IRA, and my traditional IRA
Just download “Think or swim” and try out the “paper trading” at least, it's all free. You can also open a regular account and just do all of your chart viewing and option browsing, then go into RH if you want to buy in there. PM me if you have any questions :D

Paper trading during off hours?

Right now I'm reading and watch loads and loads of videos about trading (specifically crypto, but the skills are transferable) and I think I am ready to start testing and developing strategies. The thing is, I am unable to trade during the typical 9:30 to 4. I have Think or Swim installed but I haven't touched it since the UI seems very 'busy' and somewhat overwhelming, but mainly my issue with the hours.

Is there a way I can play around by paper-trading at any time of the day? Stocks, crypto, forex, doesn't matter to me. Thanks!!

Improving Trading IQ - Strategy Tool Kits for Market Conditions

Improving Trading IQ - Strategy Tool Kits for Market Conditions
We had a single person voting in the poll of topics to be covered for followers, 6 up-votes. One voter.
So in what can only be described as a very one way vote, we'll cover;
2 - Market conditions strategy tool kit overview

Personally, I think the other one is much more interesting. It usually goes like this, "You seen that candle ... didn't you? Read that on Babypips, right? Hmmm hum. Here are 10 reasons that does not work."

Strategy tool kit is easier to do, though. This is largely a consolidation post since I've already posted much of the material in other posts.

When Right is Wrong

You must understand that you can create spectacular strategies, and no matter how well you've done with them there will be times they will betray you. Firstly, the strategy can only deal with all the variables you have had the foresight and pragmatism to allow it to cope with. You can not account for everything, because you can not know everything. From moment to moment you have no idea what is going to happen in the market. You can prepare for what you're prepared. Nothing more.

This is something that we do with everything. Not just trading strategies. We devise strategies based upon our experience to meet objectives and they work flawlessly as long as no critical aspect of the circumstances change. When you drive somewhere often, you know the strategy to get there fastest. When there are accidents blocking up the roads, this strategy fails. It remains overall a good strategy, but will betray you when critical variables change.

We'll stick with the driving analogy for understanding this. Although accidents by their very nature happen unexpectedly, you can know certain conditions in which there are more accidents. On days like this, if it's important you get somewhere in time you can leave early to account for possible detours, you can check road reports and see if there is anything to be aware of. You may even find out before getting there the road is closed, and in that case you'll take an alternative route (deploying a contingency strategy).

Since you know your strategy for doing this so well, you know the good and bad points of it. You know it's risk factors, and you know contingencies. When it comes to profiting in trading this is the part that is important. A part too often glossed over and neglected. See, anyone can know the best route ... but not everyone can avoid being stuck in a 4 hour pile up when they're late for (insert most important thing).

I can post entire strategies, literally covering everything for you. Starting with things to do before even considering a trade, moving on the specific things needed to make a trade valid for watch list. Precise requirements when price meets "potential entry area". More precise requirements for confirming and placing orders. Specifically how to place stops and targets. Indeed, I already have posted this. This is a Sat Nav. It's reasonably effective, and sometimes it will tell you to take an immediate left while you're driving along a straight bridge.

You have to understand all trading strategies do this, and the better you get at understanding market conditions the more you learn about that, the more it becomes common sense not to take a nose dive off a bridge. You can learn to be discerning. You can find filters. This plugs leaks in your profit/loss and makes you a better trader.

Let's refer to the common trading mistakes setups. Here we can see in a more practical sense how this applies to trading strategies (and although this is a hypothetically mock up, I have shown in other posts very specific practical use of this. It is practical in this market condition).


https://preview.redd.it/ugjxoydspni31.png?width=1330&format=png&auto=webp&s=c8954294729e022b33e3d247b4b1d225a6462f05
You can create a really good trend following strategy, have it profit for months and then have it lose everything in a losing streak. This can have a crushing feeling to it. A feeling you were never right, always stupid and back to square one.


https://preview.redd.it/9n96mxihqni31.png?width=714&format=png&auto=webp&s=1483c0cac8d6fd76a832a30e7e91517e912f28ce

When you learn that this consolidation and spike low pattern warns us very clearly there can be strong counter trend action and you learn to wait for a 61.8% retracement before engaging this style of strategy again - your results go linear. I feel I've already extensively shown that the switch of one market condition to another is one that can be seen. I won't be going over that again. It's covered in multiple posts and most recently here.

What I've presented in these setups is what happens in a trend. When the market is ranging for a long time, none of that works. Nothing. Everything I am teaching you with this stuff will lose money in a ranging market. So no matter how good you get at doing that, and no matter how well the strategy is designed; if part of that goodness and design does not involve sitting out of ranges ... got some bad news for you.

We have trending markets now (really easy to make money) , and this is why I am talking about all this stuff now. I am not going to get into range trading strategies because it's largely redundant at this point. There will be some intra day ranges, but probably overall trends. It's best to take advantage of what is there. We're here to make money from the markets - I am, anyway - not just talk about ideas.

I've already shared with you much of my "Strategy Tool Kit" to trade this broad move.

I've explained how I look at things in the perspective of trending week, corrective week or ranging week.

https://preview.redd.it/5f684gatsni31.png?width=1016&format=png&auto=webp&s=19b7eed5ae9ab4120a218f29feb55c2e8e06b41a
I've explained in detail a template you can use for preparing trade plans going into these.
https://www.reddit.com/Forex/comments/cuzm4f/planning_for_profit_things_to_now_to_trade_bette

When following the trend, I've explained a common mistake people make when entering into corrections. I use the inverse of this mistake to follow a trend, entering at the end of corrections.

https://preview.redd.it/xo0tnhpctni31.png?width=711&format=png&auto=webp&s=4ce1741d4583e5b2401949bda1b8d531931b7f35
When the market is in correction I use a rather standard pattern of entering into false trend continuation moves.
I've shown this pattern and how it works in my "Strategy to make 50% -100% a year Trading One Day a Week" series.

I've shown you how I look for certain conditions to occur when price is getting close to the level that I think the trend may start to really continue.
https://preview.redd.it/4g98buo1uni31.png?width=726&format=png&auto=webp&s=934149affe2a25ec4dcb1eba76e64aecdce16d74
Source: https://www.reddit.com/Forex/comments/cv1hf4/preparing_for_the_impulse_gbpusd_traps_to_expect/

Also, if the analysis I have done suggests that there might be a big candle in the move, I've shown you how without caring about what the news events actually are, I can watch for indicators and design my position placement to trade the move even if it's "unexpected news". It's not unexpected to me. I started to plan three weeks ago.

https://preview.redd.it/qmjur2tguni31.png?width=746&format=png&auto=webp&s=e4bc502f5b6275b3833672534a48b3bce4527439
From this level, there are a few things that can happen.

1 - 'Gasp' drop (the move I am positioning for)
2 - Steady and progressive trend to new lows (the move I'll adapt to position for as it happens if there's no gasp drop)
3 - Strong bullish breakout (I will flip my short term trend trading strategies and trade the other direction)

So with this tool kit of strategies and this overview of the market from my analysis style, I've known from the start of the month what sort of trading I'd be wanting to do this month. I've shown progressively how I made an initial swing analysis on GBPUSD 3 weeks ago, and then from there have slotted in meta analysis and strategies to profit from the price swings.
Source: https://www.reddit.com/Forex/comments/cv1hf4/preparing_for_the_impulse_gbpusd_traps_to_expect/

I've made forecasts of what I think wee'll see in the coming month, and I've also prepared contingency plans so if it turns out my strategies have told me to take the "Left turn" ... I at least know how to swim.

Your greatest enemies in trading can be: Anxiety, confusion and reaction. There are many people to be philosophical about these things but the solid core fact is if you do not remove them, they ruin you. You lose money, or you go through mental hell. It can be easier to bounce back from losing money than the sustained stress of not being prepared and working things out "on the hop".

The best way to deal with this is to understand your battlefield. You need to stop seeing things in overly broad senses based just on what the market is doing right now. Rather you want to be able to try to work out what the "mood" of the market will be in the coming trading sessions. If it is in that mood ... what will that look like, and what do you do when the market looks like that?

There is no such thing as bad weather ... only the wrong choice of clothing.

Serious studying weekend progress. My notes and study plan so far.

Don’t try to bet that a chart will break resistance unless catalyst. Give it 5~10 minutes for it break resistance, if not, get out.
stock without clear resistance and support are harder to predic
Resistance can be diagonal in trendline. Chasing can work but very very very very risky, if you must, wait for a pull back to supportline.
Multi month resistance Breakout after multi day uptrend can be explosive.
When break out happens and fall right back through resistance, it’s bearish, must exit!
Down trend after a double top is a EXIT SIGN very BEARISH
Triple bottom with decreasing volume is BULLISH
When double top forms, GET OUT, BEARISH. Double top mentality is wanting to break even and people want to sell and short sell.
Triple top falls wayyyy faster than double top
Head and shoulder is even worse, it can’t even create double or triple top. GET OUT.
Try to avoid symmetrical triangle, it’s only 50 50.bullish or bearish.
¾ stocks follow the market, check SPY frequently. ALSO check Russell 2000 and Wilshire 5000 those are for pennystocks.
GOLD SILVER OILD FOREX USDEUR can be difficult, try to avoid.
S not a good sign.
Biotech are risky. They do p/d a lot. Financial stocks are slow and complicated. Same with commodity.
Deathcross - 50 sma below 200 sma. Go down down.

If anyone is looking for a real experience and lack the time or want some kind of practice. Make a TD ameritrade account and download think or swim. TOS is the real time chart i use and it has the function called the on-demand. Ondemand can be set on certain date in the past to see how the chart went on, on that day. It's great to see how things happened in the past to learn. ALSO I found it to be a great practice tool to practice "what if" situation.
Say, in the past AWSM in september had an amazing run and it takes you back to that time period. I then write down where I would have entered in for a day-trade and see how the chart plays out. This has helped me get a feel for how charts react hence it will help me to trade better in the future.

Looking for something similar to OnDemand

I am from Europe and in need of something similar to ThinkOrSwim's "OnDemand" feature for market replay with historically accurate data for stocks. I tried downloading NinjaTrader for this sole purpose, but from what i understand it's only for futures and forex.
Anyone know of a solution to this? I am getting bored of having to wait for market hours to paper trade.

Really enjoy TradingView paper trading, what are some similar options when I switch to real trading?

I like the dark UI in the mornings, the controls, basically everything about it. It is the cleanest one I've found so far. There are a handful of trading services that can be "hooked" into TradingView's system, but none (non-Forex) that I recognize from doing research.
I've heard of RobinHood, Interactive Brokers, Ameritrade, ThinkOrSwim but I'm not really sure which one of these will have a similar experience, let alone have the most attractive fees. I'm looking to use 5-15k.
Would really appreciate some advice here!

Beginners start here

Hey everyone. A while back I made the decision to moderate this subreddit because I was once in your shoes. I honestly did not know where to begin. I would type in “daytrading” in google and come up with so many companies trying to sell me the dream. “Make $$$ while you sleep!” “Look at how much I made today!!” etc. I wanted to make this post to first give new people a place where to start and to even offer some resources that can get you started in the right direction. If I have anything else to add I will add it here.
  1. Open up a papertrading account with Think or Swim. It is free and you can get live data just by requesting it from support. All you have to do is ask them to add live data to your papertrading account. Do not pay monthly for any papertrading account. There are a lot of free videos out there that can help you get started with Think or Swim. The program looks complicated at first but it is very powerful. I spent a few days with the program and at the end of the week I was fairly comfortable with understanding where everything was. I have never had a 60-day limit with my papertrading account by the way. https://www.thinkorswim.com/t/pm-registration.html Start here and start taking trades! It is all fake money and will give you some insight into how the program works as well as how the markets move.
One other tip for setting up your papertrading account is to only set it up with a reasonable amount of money. I know a lot of papertrading accounts give you 100k right off the bat but realistically, how many of us are going to have that much money to start out with? Set it to something more reasonable like 10-20k if you are trading forex (or even less if all you have is 1-5k to trade with) or 25k+ if you are going to daytrade stocks only because the regulations require you to have at least 25k in your account at all times to daytrade (In this case, I would probably give yourself 30k just to be safe).
If you are looking for a stock screener, ThinkorSwim has a pretty good one. A personal favorite of mine is www.FINVIZ.com which has an awesome screener for finding different chart patterns and conditions (such as prices crossing above 20 bar EMA, trending up, etc)
Think or Swim has stocks, forex, futures, and options. Options are an entirely different beast all together but stocks, forex, and futures are all "yes-no" type of trading while options give you a little more leeway with your mistakes. If you are interested in learning about options, message me and I can help guide you with the right direction and best resources I used to learn options.
EDIT: Due to the amount of PM's I was getting, I have decided to post the options course I started with here https://www.udemy.com/learn-options-trading-courses/ You shouldn't pay more than 10 bucks for it as Udemy does a ton of sales throughout the year. You can also just do a "Udemy coupon" search on google and see what you pull up. Its about 10 hours worth of content and in my opinion it is worth every penny if you are wanting to learn more about options. There are a ton of other great classes on Udemy as well for learning just about anything. Just make sure to read the reviews!
Stocks is kind of the well known market for new comers but I would argue that Forex can also just as easily be traded by a newcomer. Also the benefit of trading Forex is that there is no commission off the bat. Most brokers will charge what is called a spread of some number of pips that you are essentially paying back.
Futures trade in ticks and each tick nets you a gain of some amount or a loss of some amount so I do not suggest any new person to jump into futures until you understand the way markets work. Futures charge commission on each contract you buy or sell. It can be sort of related to Forex since a tick and a pip are essentially the same.
The huge benefit to trading Futures and Forex is that there is NO pattern day trading rule. This means you can buy and sell as many times as you want without being flagged for not having 25k in your account.
  1. Tradimo is a great resource for getting your feet wet with technical analysis. It is free and shows you the ropes with how you can start looking at prices and charts: https://learn.tradimo.com/courses
  2. If there is ever a company you want to pay to help you learn, please do your research first. Type in the company’s name along with “review” at the end of your search and make your educated decision off of that. A lot of these companies have amazing advertising but will never teach you the right way to trade. A lot of them are scams too. I read that there was one trading system which the guy had the secrets of the “code of trading” and only he knew the code but would sell it to you for hundreds of dollars. So many people come into trading with high expectations that if I just pay this company to teach me, I can be like them when in reality that may never happen. Always look at their testimonials with a grain of salt. Read the reviews just like you would on amazon for buying a product. I also like to type in the company's name and add "scam" at the end to see if I get any hits on that. Read the good reviews but also the bad to understand the bigger picture here. Very few will actually teach you how to trade. Also, Reddit is a great place to read up on things like this too. Just add "Reddit" at the end of your search and read up on other users reviews.
Investimonials is also a good place to use as well (but do not use it as your only review source!!! Fake reviews are everywhere) http://www.investimonials.com So before you drop that 1-2k on a course, make sure you do your homework. Don't be fooled by smooth advertising.
  1. A high probability indicator or a holy grail strategy is not out there. If it was, everyone would be using it and making money. And if there does happen to be one, do you really think anyone will want to share it? The only way to get good at trading is to be able to read the charts and read where prices are going. This is through support and resistance and understanding channels. I cannot recommend Mack’s price action YouTube channel enough. https://www.youtube.com/usePATsTrading I am a firm believer that price action is the basis for understanding price movement. Reading an indicator may help but you should not rely on solely indicators to guide you with trading as they may give you a signal to buy when you are at a major resistance level or sell when you are at a major support, both of which could burn you.
  2. My only other advice is to look into markets that let you maximize profits. For some, it is not possible to buy 1000 shares of Apple. While trading low priced stocks lets you buy hundreds and maybe even thousands of shares at once, those stocks are too unpredictable because they can be influenced by individuals who do what is called a "pump and dump" schemes. Plus they can be difficult to read as far as what they are going to be doing next (going up or going down). My recommendation (and it is only my recommendation so only use this as guidance to make your own decision) would be to look into trading forex if you do not have a lot to start out with as some brokers (like FXCM) allow you to buy "micro" lots which let you invest as little as 100 dollars in some cases and have a much better chance of working in your favor due to the amount of people trading the same instrument. Note: There are some discussions about forex market makers adjusting the markets so you get stopped out prematurely. While I have not experienced this, it could theoretically happen? So if you do decide to trade Forex make sure you pick your broker carefully and again read the reviews!
EDIT: I have read that what I mentioned above about Forex is outdated and the brokers are under stricter regulations. Do your own investigation and do not let what I said steer you away from trading forex if you really want to. The big Forex brokers you are able to open an account with in the US are FXCM, Oanda, and Forex.com. You have a lot more options if you are in another country.
EDIT 2: Well it looks like FXCM may get banned from having clients in the US. Apparently they took some trades against their clients to profit on their end and have been using clients accounts to fund their extra expenses. Tread on your own risk.
  1. Above all, do not invest money that you are not willing to lose. I cannot emphasize this enough. Work on a simulator until you feel that your strategy works. This means putting in the time to sit down and analyze every trade you took which worked as well as the ones that didn't work. You need to go back over your mistakes and review why your trade did not work the way you thought it would. Was it because you bought at a high and sold at a low? Was it because you bought at a major resistance level thinking the stock would still go up? Was it because you were impulsive and entered in too early? Was it because you were too slow and entered in too late? This is the most important part about learning how to trade. Putting in the time and work to analyze what you did right and what you did wrong. You will never get better if you do not do this.
  2. Consider subscribing to a free daily financial newsletter such as The Morning Brew. It’s a free subscription that is delivered Monday through Friday to your email before the markets open around 5-6 am central time. It summarizes the big financial topics of the morning in short easy to read sections that you can read over a cup of brew.
I wouldn’t say this is essential for daytrading but it’s nice to read if you are wanting to stay up to date on the financial markets as they will write about companies and stocks to look out for. It’s also not spammy or filled with ads though there are one or two that are listed as “sponsored”. They don’t typically put out a weekend read but instead send it M-F.
https://www.morningbrew.com/?kid=08944ba0
I want to make this subreddit not only as a resource for newcomers but also for those who wish to improve their skills with learning how to day trade. I do not want this subreddit to become spam and companies trying to sell dreams. We all need to keep a realistic vision on what learning the market entails because this is a journey. No one becomes a doctor in a day or even a week and you should expect the same becoming a trader. Making consistent money in the markets can be very challenging and most wont ever make it, but it can be very satisfying once things start to click and you can live a very different life if this ever happens.
