Trading Signals

Easy-to-Use Trading Signals

Trading Signals are trade setups with detailed information to help you place and manage trades from start to finish. One of the biggest challenges that many traders face - newbie and experienced - is finding trading ideas. So it's no wonder that the DailyFX PLUS Trading Signals is one of the most popular services at FXCM.

The trading signals show you:

  • Buy and sell ideas for specific currency pairs
  • Suggested prices to enter each trade
  • Where to set your protective stop orders
  • And where to set your limit (take profit) orders

Finding a trading opportunity doesn't have to be a challenge!

Emotion Removed

The Trading Signals are fully automated. That means there aren't any signals based on human emotion. As you may know, human emotion can often be a detrimental component in trading. Many traders have the skill to develop a reliable trading strategy but they often lack the discipline to stick with it fully. Therefore, relying on a strategy that is fully automated ensures that you stick with the "original game plan" by maintaining an objective approach.

What the Analysts Say

In addition to the objective trading setups, you'll find subjective analysis of each signal provided by a DailyFX analyst; so there is a human element here too. The research team at DailyFX developed the trading strategies that power the Trading Signals, so they understand them really well. This allows them to provide commentary to you that supports or opposes the signals. For example, if a major economic event has recently taken place, or is soon to occur, they may have foresight that suggests avoiding a particular signal. At the same time, they may find a signal to be highly appealing because of additional research that supports the trading idea. Either way, the knowledge and experience they bring to the table can be highly advantageous.

The Special Ingredient

It is fair to say that without FXCM's proprietary positioning data, the Trading Signals would not be what they are today. FXCM's Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) is a powerful trading tool and it's a crucial element to the Trading Signals. The SSI reveals a telling story about how retail market participants at FXCM are trading. Are there more people buying a currency pair or selling it? And by how much? Do the markets appear to be saturated on the buy side or the sell side? Is there a high likelihood that the current trend will continue or will it change directions? Those are the questions that the SSI can answer, and why it's used to "fine tune" the trading signals.
