SIGNALS FROM FXSTREET CONTRIBUTORS (RETAIL, BROKERS & BANKS)
WHAT ARE THE TRADING POSITIONS?
The Trading Position page provides a glance as how FXStreet dedicated contributors (Retail traders, Brokers and Banks) are currently positioned in the Forex market.
The table includes Entry price, Stop Loss and Take profits (up to 3, from the most conservative to the most risky level).
- 16 currency pairs and gold spot (EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, USDCAD, AUDUSD, EURGBP, NZDUSD, XAUUSD, WTI, S&P 500, DAX, FTSE 100, EURJPY, EURAUD, GBPJPY, AUDNZD)
- Trading signals as well as buy/sell interest are aggregated in order to find liquidity clusters
- Updated several times per day with the newest positions
- Positions are automatically checked every 15 minutes and deleted from the system when liquidated by market movements.
WHY SHOULD I USE THEM?
Our Trading Positions tool offers you information that is:
- Actionable: it is a positioning indicator that delivers actionable price levels such as the average buy and average sell prices. The tool takes into account not only the entry prices but more importantly where participants have their stop losses and take profit levels. These orders are translated into support and resistance levels, as well as acceleration points.
- Accurate: the data is collected and released with almost no lag with the publications of the trading recommendations.
- Useful: a very valuable tool to combine with support and resistance analysis.
- Reliable: the reported positions and buy/sell interest are taken from leading trading advisors with large audiences reacting to these levels, making the price levels very reliable. Only positions that have been committed to publication and therefore have an influence on the market are considered. Contrast you own bias and price forecasts with those of a group of leading trading advisors and money managers.
HOW TO READ THE GRAPHS?
Besides the table with all participants’ individual positions, graphic representations aggregate and visualize the data.
- The Red and Green line shows the percentage of buy and sell positions for each currency pair.
- You also get the Average Sell Price (in red) and Average Buy Price (green) just next to the gauge graph. Trend traders can take advantage of these price levels in those circumstances when the current market price is at better levels than the average aggregate.
- If you click on the pair, you will access another page with the Liquidity Distribution illustration. On this graph, we draw a vertical line for each contributor’s price position (price is horizontally laid out) so you can quickly figure out how the liquidity is distributed along the price scale. Price levels with a lot of orders may act as support and resistance areas.
