The markets are open again folks. Good luck.

Something for members to be aware of: attempts to access SHF through Tor or any other anonymous proxy are blocked for the security of the site.


------

There is an update to Ghostrider. Details at SteveHopwood @ Ghostrider and download from post 1 in the thread. There are some interesting ideas cropping up that I plan to incorporate in the future.

-----

For those of you new to all this, I remind you that Friday is the US Non-Farm Payroll news release. This happens on the first Friday in the month unless that happens also to be the first of the month, in which case it is moved to the second Friday.

News releases are no longer the thingy of terror that they were a decade ago, but they can.. NFP is one of the bigger releases, at 1.30 PM :London time. It is up to you to work out what time this is where you live.

Typically, the markets go to sleep in the hours leading up to the release of the NFP figures. Spreads widen dramatically. The actual news release sometimes triggers huge moves, albeit less often these days than a decade ago. My best advice to noobs is this: try to be out of the markets by about 12 hours before the release, and stay out until they reopen after the weekend.

Official SHF broker
No point in learning to trade like a master trader if your broker is bollocks, so I have decided to make more of a fuss about Global Prime for the benefit of all who can trade through them but have not yet elected to do so. GP is SHF's 'Official broker'. Not just the 'Official' broker (cos we all know what a multitude of crimes this can cover) but my broker.

I am happy that GP continues to offer the transparent and honest service they advertise – it is the ONLY broker I trade with. Before you start trading you need to read this thread: “Why you should sign up with Global Prime” at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... =52&t=1475 You can chat to the team at GP on the LiveChat on their website. I remember every time I send a trade, what a breath of fresh air it is to know that I am trading with a genuine broker, not a 'market maker' or 'bucket shop' – and this is more than seven years after Jeremy & Co took over the running of GP..


--------

VPS. I am running Eaymon's VPS. Absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend it highly enough. At the time of writing, I am running 8 demo platforms and it has not missed a beat. Physical memory used = 47%. I have yet to catch CPU usage going over 40% and it is usually in the low teens, so plenty of juice left: http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 103&t=5282

I encourage all of you running SPB, PoS, Monster to to take part in the coordinated test database. It is quick and easy to set up, the the uploader EA takes care of the heavy lifting. Details at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 81#p160081

EA's that members are trading live and profitably
These are the ones I know about. Contact me if yours should be in this exclusive group and I have missed it out. It will never be a large section.

Before you use them there are a few points you MUST understand, grasp and learn to live by:
1) There is an unbreakable, unshakable and unavoidable rule of retail forex trading and it is this: if it can happen and it is bad for you, then it will happen, and probably sooner rather than later.
2) You will have losing days.
3) You will have losing weeks.
4) You will have losing months.
5) The only thing that matters is that the equity curve rises over a longer period of time than most of you possess the ability to concentrate for.
6) You need balls of steel to trade Forex. 2), 3) and 4) will sort you out rapidly if you are a wimp.
7) Never trade with funds you cannot afford to lose. You will be desperate to succeed and fear will cloud your judgement. Guess how I know? Guess why I am so relaxed about trading these days. Only a cretin trades with the pension pot or remortgages the house in order to do so.

I repeat my monthly appeal on Tommaso's behald - details at SteveHopwood @ Tommaso needs our help. I ask all members to donate $10.

Those of us who tried to log into the forum to be met with a blank page yesterday are reminded just how vital Tommaso is to us. The site going down was not a ddos attack. Instead, the host company, Dreamhost, balsed something up and Tommaso spent an entire day battling with them to get it put right. On these occasions, Dreamhost turn into Nightmarehost and it takes the likes of Tommaso to deal with them.

These are difficult times for many people, worried about the future of their employment. Despite this, please donate if you are making money from trading as a result of what you have learned here at SHF. Our forum would not still exist were it not for Tommaso funding it for several years, at an annual cost of $1,800.

I pay these costs but Tommaso still saves me a fortune. I would be forced to accept advertising if I had to pay for a webmaster; none of us want that.

I keep records in a spreadsheet attached to post 1. The spreadsheet in post 1 is out of date but mine is bang up to date; I will upload it this week.

There is a quick and easy donations link at the top of the post.

biobier has posted and EA that contains elements of Moving Day with MACD and Ghostrider, along with his own twists. biobier is one of those who offers frequent bloop spots/enhancement suggestions to my own code, so you can be sure that his is tight. Check it out at biobier @ MACD-Rush EA

Read Thomas' (tomele) profile and you will see that a part of it is this:
Occupation: PC Doctor, Programmer, Webmaster.

It occurred to me that I could express my appreciation for all that he does for us by giving him a monthly bump in my wrup. I asked him to expand on his listing. Here is his reply:

“Basically, people can ask me for everything computer-related. Be it helping remotely via phone and/or Teamviewer to fix or set something up, be it coding in Mql or some other language or be it something website-related. The approach would always be to contact me with a description of the task to receive an offer from my side. I always honestly say when things exceed my skills, but probably I can make contact with a more appropriate partner then.”

Bear Thomas in mind when you need something computer-related, folks. You can contact him by email or PM via his user control panel, or by posting on his thread tomele @ Need help with PC, coding or website?
------

I like to give Leon's thread a bump from time to time – Wavegarrick @ Wavegarrick's HGI Trading. Check it out if you are unfamiliar with it. It is a live thread; Leon is a clever trader; he has been researching his system for over two years now.

Digest of Steve's weekly round-ups

Postby SteveHopwood » Sun Jan 10, 2021 10:33 pm

The markets are open again folks. Good luck.

Something for members to be aware of: attempts to access SHF through Tor or any other anonymous proxy are blocked for the security of the site.


------

Nothing new from me this week. Instead, check out r1ch4rd's post and subsequent in the Tdesk Setups Exchange thread: r1ch4rd @ TDesk Setups Exchange

-----

These next two items I leave in place from last week, to make sure you have all seen them.


Tdesk 7.3 is available from tomele @ TDesk Announcements. Thomas has also created a user manual, so download it and read in detail if you are confused by Tdesk. It has helped me a lot.


US citizens, Lonnie has uploaded an edition of Ditto with an updated expiration date.

Official SHF broker
No point in learning to trade like a master trader if your broker is bollocks, so I have decided to make more of a fuss about Global Prime for the benefit of all who can trade through them but have not yet elected to do so. GP is SHF's 'Official broker'. Not just the 'Official' broker (cos we all know what a multitude of crimes this can cover) but my broker.

I am happy that GP continues to offer the transparent and honest service they advertise – it is the ONLY broker I trade with. Before you start trading you need to read this thread: “Why you should sign up with Global Prime” at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... =52&t=1475 You can chat to the team at GP on the LiveChat on their website. I remember every time I send a trade, what a breath of fresh air it is to know that I am trading with a genuine broker, not a 'market maker' or 'bucket shop' – and this is more than seven years after Jeremy & Co took over the running of GP..


--------

VPS. I am running Eaymon's VPS. Absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend it highly enough. At the time of writing, I am running 8 demo platforms and it has not missed a beat. Physical memory used = 47%. I have yet to catch CPU usage going over 40% and it is usually in the low teens, so plenty of juice left: http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 103&t=5282

--------


I encourage all of you running SPB, PoS, Monster to to take part in the coordinated test database. It is quick and easy to set up, the the uploader EA takes care of the heavy lifting. Details at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 81#p160081

EA's that members are trading live and profitably
These are the ones I know about. Contact me if yours should be in this exclusive group and I have missed it out. It will never be a large section.

Before you use them there are a few points you MUST understand, grasp and learn to live by:
1) There is an unbreakable, unshakable and unavoidable rule of retail forex trading and it is this: if it can happen and it is bad for you, then it will happen, and probably sooner rather than later.
2) You will have losing days.
3) You will have losing weeks.
4) You will have losing months.
5) The only thing that matters is that the equity curve rises over a longer period of time than most of you possess the ability to concentrate for.
6) You need balls of steel to trade Forex. 2), 3) and 4) will sort you out rapidly if you are a wimp.
7) Never trade with funds you cannot afford to lose. You will be desperate to succeed and fear will cloud your judgement. Guess how I know? Guess why I am so relaxed about trading these days. Only a cretin trades with the pension pot or remortgages the house in order to do so.

It turns out that there was a bloop in the jumping and trailing stop functions I coded for Desky, the SPB Core Library and Trendy Monster Moving Day. Check out the details in the various threads.

Read Thomas' (tomele) profile and you will see that a part of it is this:
Occupation: PC Doctor, Programmer, Webmaster.

It occurred to me that I could express my appreciation for all that he does for us by giving him a monthly bump in my wrup. I asked him to expand on his listing. Here is his reply:

“Basically, people can ask me for everything computer-related. Be it helping remotely via phone and/or Teamviewer to fix or set something up, be it coding in Mql or some other language or be it something website-related. The approach would always be to contact me with a description of the task to receive an offer from my side. I always honestly say when things exceed my skills, but probably I can make contact with a more appropriate partner then.”

Bear Thomas in mind when you need something computer-related, folks. You can contact him by email or PM via his user control panel, or by posting on his thread tomele @ Need help with PC, coding or website?

Something for members to be aware of: attempts to access SHF through Tor or any other anonymous proxy are blocked for the security of the site.


------

I repeat my monthly appeal on Tommaso's behald - details at SteveHopwood @ Tommaso needs our help. I ask all members to donate $10. I have pledged my usual £20 and will continue to donate whatever affiliate commissions accrue from Eaymon's VPS.

These are difficult times for many people, worried about the future of their employment. Despite this, please donate if you are making money from trading as a result of what you have learned here at SHF. Our forum would not still exist were it not for Tommaso funding it for several years, at an annual cost of $1,800.

I pay these costs but Tommaso still saves me a fortune. I would be forced to accept advertising if I had to pay for a webmaster; none of us want that.

I keep records in a spreadsheet attached to post 1. The spreadsheet in post 1 is out of date but mine is bang up to date; I will upload it this week.

There is a quick and easy donations link at the top of the post.


-----

For those of you new to all this, I remind you that Friday is the US Non-Farm Payroll news release. This happens on the first Friday in the month unless that happens also to be the first of the month, in which case it is moved to the second Friday.

News releases are no longer the thingy of terror that they were a decade ago, but they can.. NFP is one of the bigger releases, at 1.30 PM :London time. It is up to you to work out what time this is where you live.

Typically, the markets go to sleep in the hours leading up to the release of the NFP figures. Spreads widen dramatically. The actual news release sometimes triggers huge moves, albeit less often these days than a decade ago. My best advice to noobs is this: try to be out of the markets by about 12 hours before the release, and stay out until they reopen after the weekend.

Time to give another bump to Leon's thread at Wavegarrick @ Wavegarrick's HGI Trading. This thread is now over two and a half years old and Leon has done some fantastic research. Threads like his do not last for more than two years when run by an idiot.

Read the effing manual, ok?

Global Prime is the official SHF broker. Click here to sign up for a live account with Global Prime and join the several thousand SHF members who wisely choose GP as their broker of choice.

I still suffer from OCCD. Good thing, really.

Anyone here feeling generous? My paypal account is always in the market for a tiny donation. [email protected] is the account.

Digest of Steve's weekly round-ups

The markets are open again folks. Good luck.

Something for members to be aware of: attempts to access SHF through Tor or any other anonymous proxy are blocked for the security of the site.

r1ch4rd's TDesk setup is progressing. Try it at r1ch4rd @ TDesk Setups Exchange

Also read up about TDesk if this has somehow managed to escape your attention. Folks are getting for free trading software that would cost $thousands elsewhere. Incredible stuff. tomele @ TDesk Announcements

Remember to take a look at Wavegarrick's HGI Trading thread at Wavegarrick @ Wavegarrick's HGI Trading. Leon has been researching his method for just shy of two and a half years now and so must be worth a look.

I emphasise to newcomers here the incredible value of having Global Prime as your broker. I do not even bother to have bad dreams about trading with others. Read why at SteveHopwood @ Why you should sign up with Global Prime. Time also to remind you folks about Global Prime's Discord chat room at  https://discord.gg/56bQuFJ

Discord is open to all traders whether GP clients or not. Jem sent me this to sum up what it is all about.

Discord: Real Time Trader Community Chat
Global Prime is one of the only brokers in the world where you can find the founders and team chatting away on a Sunday with their clients. Any question gets answered with no exception!
 
Join Discord 
 
At Global Prime we always tell it like it is. We openly discuss everything from how we operate, to our A-book model, spreads, platforms and of course building up our client’s education alongside Ivan Delgado our Head of Market Insights.
 
There’s no doubt that trading can be quite solitary. If you’ve ever traded the US session from Australia at 3 o’clock in the morning you will know what we mean! Being able to chat with fellow clients 24/7 will help to keep you going while you are trying to squeeze out those last few pips before bedtime.
 
The community is tight knit and inside you will find fascinating conversations from real traders discussing their strategies and approaches to the market. Everyone is welcome and you don’t need to be a Global Prime client to join.
 
If you wish to stay up to date with the markets, hang out with fellow traders and the rest of the team, we have got you covered. We look forward to chatting with you soon.

Official SHF broker
No point in learning to trade like a master trader if your broker is bollocks, so I have decided to make more of a fuss about Global Prime for the benefit of all who can trade through them but have not yet elected to do so. GP is SHF's 'Official broker'. Not just the 'Official' broker (cos we all know what a multitude of crimes this can cover) but my broker.

I am happy that GP continues to offer the transparent and honest service they advertise – it is the ONLY broker I trade with. Before you start trading you need to read this thread: “Why you should sign up with Global Prime” at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... =52&t=1475 You can chat to the team at GP on the LiveChat on their website. I remember every time I send a trade, what a breath of fresh air it is to know that I am trading with a genuine broker, not a 'market maker' or 'bucket shop' – and this is more than seven years after Jeremy & Co took over the running of GP..


--------

VPS. I am running Eaymon's VPS. Absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend it highly enough. At the time of writing, I am running 8 demo platforms and it has not missed a beat. Physical memory used = 47%. I have yet to catch CPU usage going over 40% and it is usually in the low teens, so plenty of juice left: http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 103&t=5282

--------


I encourage all of you running SPB, PoS, Monster to to take part in the coordinated test database. It is quick and easy to set up, the the uploader EA takes care of the heavy lifting. Details at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 81#p160081


-----------------------------


EA's that members are trading live and profitably
These are the ones I know about. Contact me if yours should be in this exclusive group and I have missed it out. It will never be a large section.

Before you use them there are a few points you MUST understand, grasp and learn to live by:
1) There is an unbreakable, unshakable and unavoidable rule of retail forex trading and it is this: if it can happen and it is bad for you, then it will happen, and probably sooner rather than later.
2) You will have losing days.
3) You will have losing weeks.
4) You will have losing months.
5) The only thing that matters is that the equity curve rises over a longer period of time than most of you possess the ability to concentrate for.
6) You need balls of steel to trade Forex. 2), 3) and 4) will sort you out rapidly if you are a wimp.
7) Never trade with funds you cannot afford to lose. You will be desperate to succeed and fear will cloud your judgement. Guess how I know? Guess why I am so relaxed about trading these days. Only a cretin trades with the pension pot or remortgages the house in order to do so.

Gold Mine Threads
These are the threads that I am familiar with whose participants are consistently making profits.

Manual trading threads:

Bob's SUPER CSS-2.0 Read about it at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... =88&t=4888 then download the latest version of the indi can from http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 88#p146488


Bob's (nanningbob) Holy Grail Indicator
People are making a bomb out of the Holy Grail Indicator. Bob has come up with a concept that tells use when to trade and exit, and when not to trade. Elixe and milanese have coded this into an indicator, coding which is breathtaking in its scope and execution. Visit Bob's Holy Grail Indicator thread at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 44#p105044 right now. Immediately, Go. Now.

HGI has revolutionised trading. All we have to do is react to its signals. Visit the relevant chart when you hear an alert and do what HGI tells you to do. An infant could trade with this indi.

Renexxxx has a great-looking Matrix at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 62#p105462

So guys, not only do we have Bob's amazing HGI but we have fabulous tools to help us use them (including some automation – see below). Try them out and see what works for you.

Hot a lot new this week. Have a look at donix's post at donix @ Idea: Build Masaniello EA recovery in case there is anything there for you. I have viewed the video he links but have no idea what the lady is talking about. Maybe some of the brighter lights here can make sense of it.
