EUR/USD rises to session high, still stuck in range below 1.1400


As the US Dollar, measured by the US Dollar index, continues to lose ground on Wednesday, the EUR/USD pair rose to a session high level of 1.1388 before retracing few pips to currently trade at 1.1380.

Dismal US jobs date for May continues to weigh on the US Dollar as investors now seems to evaluate the timing of next Fed rate-hike decision. The US economic calendar has nothing to offer on Wednesday and hence, a major chunk of investors are likely to remain on the sidelines ahead of the much awaited FOMC meeting on June 14-15.

The only release from the US docket will be the official EIA weekly crude oil inventories report that could further boost risk-on sentiment that has been driving European equities and crude oil prices higher.

Technical outlook

Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet notes, "as in the 4 hours chart, the Momentum indicator has finally erased the extreme readings achieved by the end of last week, and is now flat around its 100 level, whilst the RSI indicator consolidates near overbought readings, and the 20 SMA has approached the current level, maintaining a strong upward slope."

"The immediate resistance is 1.1395, this week high, followed by 1.1420 and the mentioned 1.1460, while below 1.1325, the pair can correct lower down to 1.1280, where selling interest should contain the slide."

The first prize in Round 51 of OctaFX Champion demo contest became an anniversary gift


Another Round of OctaFX Champion demo contest is over and we are happy to announce the winners! Here they are:

  • 1st place with the award of 500 USD goes to Mr. Alexander Lukyanchikov from Ukraine
  • 2nd place with the award of 300 USD goes to Mr. Zainal Abidin from Indonesia
  • 3rd place with the award of 100 USD goes to Ms. Zunairoh Zunairoh from Indonesia
  • The last runner in the contest, Mr. Alfredo Martinez Martinez from Spain is granted 100 USD

What strategy to choose? Is it a bad idea to put all eggs in one basket? Should you choose a single currency pair or to trade with a few of them? Can an old dog learn new tricks? Is the risk inevitable in Forex? If you are ready to get the answers to these questions, read the success stories of our winners:

1st place - Mr. Alexander Lukyanchikov from Ukraine

Thank you for congratulations! I’m happy to share my contest experience. Have you seen my avatar? I’ve been using it for a few years. It shows the goal that I was pursuing: at the beginning, I was looking in the mirror; now I’m looking out of it. I achieved one of my life goals and I’m happy. On July, 2nd, I’ll turn 65. Thanks to OctaFX, I made myself an anniversary gift. Judge for yourself: my Ukrainian pension equals to $51 a month. It’s a bit more than $600 a year.

I’ve been trading for 8 years and now I’m sure that choosing one currency pair is much better than watching a few pairs’ trends. If you work with just one currency pair, all your funds are localized, it’s easier to manage and control them. However, it may conflict with the idea not to put all eggs in one basket. My strategy is not that good with the sideways trend, but it was perfect with the May AUDUSD trend. In the second part of the contest I started making mistakes, so I tried hedging, and when I realized what my mistake were and I got profits.

I don’t spend all my time using this strategy: when I can’t predict the further movement, I wait for a couple of days to see the trend clearer.

The key factor of my success can be perfectly described by a quote by Mark Douglas:

“When asked for their secrets of success, they categorically state that they didn't achieve any measure of consistency in accumulating wealth from trading until they learned self-discipline, emotional control, and the ability to change their minds to flow with the markets. First, I want to point out that self-discipline, emotional control, and learning to change one's mind after making a commitment are all psychological issues that have nothing to do with news services, advisory services, new exchanges, or technical or fundamental trading systems - computerized or not. Second, from my trading experiences, observations, and research, I have discovered that all traders - both winners and losers - seem to share some very common experiences. Either in the beginning or at some point early in their trading career, all traders experience confusion, frustration, anxiety, and the pain of failure. The few-traders who pass through this phase to accumulate wealth are those who eventually confront and work through some very difficult psychological issues about what it means to be a trader, and this process of realization and change normally takes several years, even for the best of them. … There is some element of truth to the saying that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, except that it should really read "An old dog won't learn new tricks". It's not that it is impossible for someone regardless of their age to learn something new; the issue isn't ability.”

2nd place - Mr. Zainal Abidin from Indonesia

I am very glad to get second place this time, all my efforts paid off! Time that I use to trade is around 3-4 hours per day. I try to be as disciplined as I can without to much greed. That's the key to my success. And the strategy that I use is SR and MM. I've been trading for about 2-3 years and I am determined to improve my ability to be better. Thank you, OctaFX, for already appreciating my trading skills!

3rd place - Ms. Zunairoh Zunairoh from Indonesia

I’m happy like never before! It’s great to become one of the winners. I didn’t spend too much time trading but, anyway, I was deeply involved. Now I’ll take a short break and won’t trade for some time not to dull the edge of the winner’s pleasure. Then, I will surely go on competing again. I firmly believe that it’s experience that teaches us to be better and to do better. Preferably, 3 years or more - that’s enough to become quite a pro in trading. Experience and patience are the key elements in successful trading. As far as my experience says, the existing Forex data doesn’t necessarily affect the chart, so my advice is not to believe the data blindly. This strategy has always helped me, especially when I got 100 pips in a single transaction.

The last runner in the contest - Mr. Alfredo Martinez Martinez from Spain

I plan to considerably improve my performance in the next round of the contest. I learn a lot when I trade, so this time I learned that it’s rather dangerous to trade with the high leverage, especially if it’s all about the highly volatile assets. Anyways, to win the contest, you have to accept this risk, and risk means losses but also higher gain. Very large gains are needed to qualify for any prize position in the contest.

I didn’t use stop loss this time in hope that the asset would spin in my favor, but the trend was the opposite. As the leverage was very high, it was really quick. This is a contest, so I didn’t lose any real money; I became the last runner which is not so bad considering the prize. So this contest, is anyway, worth accepting the risk. No risk - no gain.

During the contest, I was continuously monitoring the market with periodic checks (every 3-4 hours). At first I got very good yields, but at the end of the first week my balance turned negative. However, my most successful operation was Buy with EURCAD. My favorite tools were Crossing Moving Averages and Awesome Oscillator.

I guess time is different for each person and their circumstances, but I’ve been trading for two and a half years trying many things, and I think I'm close to being a good trader. Now what I need to do is to trade for some time on a demo account just for the sake of practice.

Feeling inspired? Register in the upcoming round and become one of OctaFX Champions!

Saints Foundation score at Saint Mary's stadium with the help of OctaFX


Football is a big part of our society and is world-recognised as a universal sport in many countries. It educates and inspires people of all ages, brings people and communities together.

OctaFX, in conjunction with the Saints Foundation, Southampton FC kindly donated pitch playing time for a lucky group from the Fustal programme. We are helping to enable young people to gain an education while playing the sport.

The Saints Foundation’s Futsal and Education Scholarship was created in 2011 and started with 16 scholars. The course now has 76 full-time scholars, including the club’s first ever girls’ team who are currently fourth in the league.

OctaFX has recently helped facilitate the opportunity for a group of young people to play within Saint Mary's stadium. An experience such as this has given these young people a much deserved reward and morale boost for all their hard work, during their past 2-years of study. On the day, a great game was played by both teams and the players enjoyed the event immensely.
This combination of studying and playing sport has proved incredibly successful, with former students now undertaking football scholarships in the US, university study in the UK, and work opportunities with the Saints Foundation itself.

Many students from the group that played have been accepted to universities. The group who play at Saint Mary's stadium on this day were also crowned FLT Fustal League 3 and League 4 National Champions as well as League 2 runners up.

As the scholars come to the end of the year they will be working hard to complete their studies before they go to compete in the FLT Futsal National Finals for the last time.  

OctaFX is proud to be associated with the Saints Foundation as they are encouraging the youth of today to aspire through sports education, ensuring a brighter future.

EUR/USD extending gains, now aims to reclaim 1.1200 handle


US Dollar weakness remained a key theme in the FX market on Wednesday, with the EUR/USD pair extending its gains to currently trade around session high near 1.1175 region.

After dipping below 200-day SMA on Tuesday, the pair recovered sharply as disappointing US labor productivity now seems have dented prospects of an eventual Fed rate-hike in 2016 and weighing heavily on the greenback.

In absence of any important economic releases, broader sentiment surrounding the US Dollar would continue to drive the major until Friday's release of monthly retail sales data from the US. In the meantime, RBNZ monetary policy decision on Thursday might trigger some volatility in the markets and eventually provide some immediate momentum play.

From technical perspective, the pair's rebound from 200-day SMA region has lifted it beyond 1.1150 region (50-day SMA) and is also sustaining the strength at higher levels. Hence, only a turnaround in sentiment would hinder the pair's ongoing upward trajectory.

Technical levels to watch

From current levels, the momentum seems to lift the pair towards 1.1200 handle, which could further get extended towards its next major resistance at 100-day SMA near 1.1230 region. On the flip side, 50-day SMA resistance break-point near 1.1150 now become immediate support to defend, below which the pair could drop to 1.1110-1.1100 support area before heading back towards the very important 200-day SMA support near 1.1080-75 region.

Round 53 of OctaFX Champion demo contest: time to know the winners!


The results of Round 53 of the OctaFX Champion demo contest are out, so let's meet and congratulate our recent winners who shared the prize fund of $1000. They were happy to give us their insights into their trading methods and successes.
● 1st place with the award of 500 USD goes to Mr. Indra Sakti Laksana from Indonesia.
● 2nd place with the award of 300 USD goes to Mr. Ibnu Hajar from Indonesia.
● 3rd place with the award of 100 USD goes to Mr. Budiman from Indonesia
● The last place is Ms. Insana from Indonesia who has won 100 USD

To gain some more insight and tips -  just read the following interviews from our successful traders!

1st place: Mr. Indra Sakti Laksana from Indonesia

I am very happy to be a winner with OctaFX. I do not spend a lot of time trading, but it takes a lot of concentration to keep up with all the participants. I will take part in every contest whenever possible to practice and focus more. Within trading I use a combination of various analyses of the current price conditions. I have not experienced anything spectacular but it depends on the individual trader.

2nd place: Mr. Ibnu Hajar from Indonesia

I am very happy to be involved in the contest although I did not spend much time trading.
In the coming months I want to improve my trading knowledge and experience. My plan is to take part in the contest more often after my recent success to improve my chances of winning. Being disciplined in money management is important to trade well.  My advice to help you trade better is that you need to see the bigger trading picture. I did not use many techniques, just the Bollinger Bands (BB). It has taken me approximately two years to develop a good understanding of the best strategies.

Bollinger Bands - this is a member of the “Trend” family of technical indicators within Forex trading. Traders use the bands to anticipate increases or decreases in volatility that can signal trend changes.

Last place: Ms. Insana from Indonesia

My plan is to do better in order to achieve better results. This experience has been a lesson for my trading skills. I normally do not spend a lot of time trading as I do it in my spare time. My most successful trade has been a profit of $1159.20. I used BBMA or Bollinger Bands (BB) when I traded recently. To be a good trader and knowledgeable, takes approximately two years I think.

It just takes a few moments to join our fantastic contest. Just register here and accept the challenge to be in with a chance to win!

EUR/USD consolidates the vertical rise ahead of US data


The EUR/USD pair is currently consolidating the vertical rise witnessed last hours, with the bulls keeping range in the upper bound of 1.12 handle, as focus now shifts to the US dataflow due ahead of the US open.

EUR/USD at post-Brexit highs

Currently, EUR/USD rallies +0.77% to 1.1269, having posted fresh eight-week highs at 1.1277 post-European open. The main currency pair remains heavily bid, although fails several attempts to take on the recovery further towards 1.13 handle, as the bulls turn nervous heading into the much-awaited US CPI report due later in NA session.

However, the bid tone behind the EUR/USD pair remains intact as the US dollar suffers steep losses, largely on the back of repositioning ahead of the key risk events from the US dockets, viz., CPI, industrial output, housing starts, building permits and capacity utilization rate. The USD index meanders near fresh two-month lows of 94.73, recording a 0.82% loss on the day.

Calendar-wise, we had the ZEW surveys from Germany as well as the Eurozone, with the German headline ZEW economic sentiment coming in stronger at 0.5 in August as compared to July’s -6.8 points, however, missed markets’ expectations of a 2.0 reading.

EUR/USD Technical Levels             

In terms of technicals, the pair finds the immediate resistance 1.1277 (2-month highs). A break beyond the last, doors will open for a test of 1.1300 (psychological levels). On the flip side, the immediate support is placed at 1.1204 (100--DMA) below which 1.1183 (5-DMA) could be tested.

OctaFX delights traders with new accounts offering


OctaFX, the forex broker renowned for offering the lowest spreads in the industry, today announced a complete revamp of its trading accounts and conditions. In its bid to constantly respond to customer requests and improve trading performance, OctaFX has further enhanced conditions on both MT4 and cTrader accounts as well as launching a brand new MT5 Pro Account.

OctaFX’s new Pro Account is designed to suit traders who wish to take advantage of the benefits of the new MT5 platform. MT5 offers numerous new features including an enhanced new user interface, the ability to hedge, opening multiple trades for the same symbol including in opposing directions, and the ability to place Buy Stop Limit and Sell Stop Limit orders, to name but a few.

In addition to enabling trading on MT5, OctaFX’s new Pro Account provides users with even lower floating spreads, starting from 0.2 pips. And for those interested in additional currency pairs, indices (Nikkei 225, Nasdaq 100 S&P 500 Dow Jones 30), precious metals or crude oil, a total of 44 instruments are now included. The Pro account is commission-free and the combination of a minimal volume limit of 0.01 lot, 1:200 leverage and advanced MT5 analysis tools enables traders to adapt their strategy to any market conditions.

OctaFX has combined the best features of their old Micro and ECN accounts into their newly enhanced MT4 Micro account. These include spreads starting from 0.4 pips, a minimal volume of 0.01 lot and 1:500 leverage. The number of trading instruments available with the MT4 Micro account has been increased to include 28 currency pairs as well as gold and silver. New MT4 ECN accounts are no longer available but existing users of old account types (MT4 or cTrader) can continue to use their old accounts for trading.

Traders interested in direct market access are now able to select OctaFX’s revamped cTrader ECN account. This account features raw spreads from 0.0 pips, competitive commissions and 35 currency pairs along with gold and silver and level II quotes.   

“We have listened attentively to our customers and developed a suite of accounts designed not only to cater to almost all our traders’ needs, but also to provide industry-leading trading conditions,” said an OctaFX spokesperson. “We have built a reputation of putting our customers first and we are thrilled to be able to once again delight traders on OctaFX.com with unrivalled trading conditions.”

Here is what some OctaFX customers are saying:

I love the Pro account! It has extremely low spreads, includes more instruments and it’s much more interesting to have CFD and Energies in the OctaFX platform.

Muhammad Hafizul Abdul Rashid

I love the spreads. I do notice there is platinum and palladium on there and 1:200 is good leverage, I think it is safe… This pro account has indices, OctaFX has never offered those before. I'm very happy.

Maxim Ferberov
