OctaFX: Our Advantages

 

AtZXqb.jpg


OctaFX values every customer and does everything possible to make their Forex Trading experience with us positive and profitable. It has always been our top priority to provide our clients with high quality services in accordance with international standards and regulation. Our aim is making a trading experience convenient and outstanding, striving to drive forex trading to a completely new level.

ECN execution
OctaFX works with various liquidity providers around the world - clients' orders are sent directly to one or several liquidity providers to be executed on their end. Our system is designed to offer the best prices available at each moment to the clients. Read more.

The more liquidity providers a broker has, the better the execution for the clients is: more liquidity available generally means less price slippage. What makes us a true STP (Straight Through Processing) broker is that we don’t internalise the orders; instead we send them to liquidity providers, acting as an intermediary between the client and the real market.

Client funds security
Account verification. Providing your ID and address proof ensures your transactions are safe and personalized.
Segregated accounts. OctaFX acts in compliance with international standards keeping customers’ funds segregated from company’s assets.
SSL-protected Personal Area. Secure SSL encryption makes all your information confidential and inaccessible to third parties.
Secure transactions. 3-D Secure technology adds an authentication step for online payments making your VISA/Mastercard payments protected.

Negative balance protection
Our client’s losses cannot exceed their deposits, and if a client’s OctaFX trading account balance becomes negative, this does not mean the client is liable – OctaFX will compensate the client’s OctaFX trading account balance back to zero. Regardless of the market circumstances OctaFX protects the client from losses exceeding their deposits with OctaFX, which comes in handy in a constantly changing economic situation. However, the client’s capital is at risk and they may lose their initial investment.

Trading Software
OctaFX provides a wide range of trading tools available on both desktop and mobile platforms.

Totally client-oriented
Our operators reply to more than 2000 enquiries on an average day and are highly trained to comply with every company standard.

GBP/USD deflates to 1.5130 on UK data

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The sterling is losing its shine during the European morning, now dragging GBP/USD to the 1.5140/30 area.

GBP/USD weaker on UK job figures

The pair has surrendered part of the initial strength after UK’s Claimant Count Change has increased by 3.3K during October vs. 1.5K expected and 0.5K previous. Further data saw the unemployment rate ticking lower to 5.3% in September while Average Earnings have come in below expectations.

Ahead in the session, the pound will remain under pressure in light of the speech by Governor M.Carney, while the renewed dovish stance from the BoE at its meeting last week still lingers over the markets.

GBP/USD levels to watch

At the moment, the pair is advancing 0.17% at 1.5143 facing the next resistance at 1.5204 (38.2% of 1.5496-1.5023) followed by 1.5233 (7-month uptrend prev. support now resistance) and then 1.5314 (55-day sma). On the other hand, a break below 1.5023 (low Nov.6) would aim for 1.4948 (low Jan.23) and finally 1.4563 (2015 low Apr.13).

The winners of our Round 44 OctaFX Champion demo contest have already shared their stories of success with us! It’s always inspiring to get the view of the contest from the leaders themselves, so, we can’t wait to offer you to enjoy the experience and impressions of our champions. Read, learn, show your best trading strategies and next success story might be about you! Let us remind you the names of the winners of round 44:6

1st place with the award of 500 USD goes to Mr. Alexey Melnikov from Kazakhstan
2nd place with the award of 300 USD goes to Mr. Supriadi SH from Indonesia
3rd place with the award of 100 USD goes to Mr. Alfi Hendri from Indonesia
The last runner in the contest, Mr. Srini Vasa from India is granted 100 USD

1st place – Mr. Alexey Melnikov from Kazakhstan

Thank you very much OctaFX, I'm very happy to win this contest. I tried my best, firstly, I was on the 3rd place, but then the other two participants were disqualified...so, never give up, I'm very happy now. I didn’t spend too much time to succeed in this competition, only the last day was rather involving. I haven’t decided yet about my participation in other OctaFX contests, probably, I will try. My recipe to success is be risky! I wasn't better than other traders, but I was risky, my last deal was perfect, big volume - big profit. Practically, these factors determined my victory! My main strategy was to predict reverses and follow a trend. To tell the truth, my biggest profit is winning in this competition, because I am only doing my first steps, I’m just learning. So, my win could become a great inspiration to newcomers!

2nd place – to Mr. Supriadi SH from Indonesia

I am very happy to stand second on the list of the OctaFX Champion demo contest. I have never thought that I would become a winner! Talking about my involvement in the contest I can’t say that I spent too much time - only a few minutes and not even every day. Moreover, I think that the time has come and I will definitely participate in the other contests and promotions of OctaFX. Frankly, the key to my success is very simple - observe market movements and when the current market situation is good, enter the market! I used no particular strategy, my advice is just to learn and learn to trade Forex on a regular basis. I want to repeat that I am satisfied enough to be the second in this race, which I have never imagined! What I like most is that I have never experienced substantial losses. I believe, it might require more than a year to become a good trader.

3rd place – to Mr. Alfi Hendri from Indonesia

I was very thrilled during this round of the contest and I would like to thank OctaFX for providing us with such a competition! I devoted only some time to the contest, actually, I traded when I was not busy. I am very excited about the OctaFX promotions and I will continue to participate in any of them. My successful trading is based on three elements: patience, discipline and time management. I developed and followed my own plan and used the existing techniques. Honestly speaking, I made quite a big profit, my loss is small compared to my gain. I believe that it takes about 5 years to become a good trader. To my mind, if you want to gain success, improve yourself every day!

We would like to thank the traders for sharing their success stories, as well as all traders who have participated in the competition. We hope that these stories got you inspired! Join our next round registration for the contest to become a champion and find your story in our news! Next round is yet to come and open for all participants!

Be the Champion with OctaFX!

GBP/USD remains vulnerable – Commerzbank


FXStreet (Edinburgh) - In the view of Karen Jones, Head of FICC Technical Analysis at Commerzbank, the pair remains vulnerable after being rejected from the 1.5340 area.

Key Quotes

“GBP/USD’s burst higher has been thwarted by the 200 day ma at 1.5341and is back under pressure. We look for the correction higher to have terminated at 1.5337. Resistance above here intensifies we have the 1.5397 resistance line then the 1.5515 October high”.

“Below 1.5107 (October low) is needed to refocus attention on the downside towards 1.5020/00 and below 1.5000 will target initially the 1.4860/78.6% retracement of the move up from April. This is regarded as the last defence for the 1.4568 April low”.

How to win a round of OctaFX Champion Demo Contest: success stories

 


NmgTDLV.png

 



Round 45 of OctaFX Champion demo contest is over, and our participants are ready to share their trading experience and key to success. Here are the lucky traders who won prizes in Round 45:

  • 1st place with the award of 500 USD goes to Mr. Md Toiab Ali from Bangladesh
  • 2nd place with the award of 300 USD goes to Mr. Suparmin from Indonesia
  • 3rd place with the award of 100 USD goes to Mr. Rahardyan Widodo from Indonesia
  • The last runner in the contest, Mr. Manat Phusrisalap from Thailand is granted 100 USD

Here’s what our winners have told us:

1st place – Mr. Md Toiab Ali from Bangladesh
I’m so happy to be the Champion this time! My friend told me there was an exciting opportunity to test my trading skills and introduced OctaFX broker to me. Right away, I thought that it was a great idea. Now, when I won the round of one of the demo contests, I would love to take part in the Supercharged real сontest. I think I can win there as well. I have a secret that I can share with all the traders who want to become successful: forget about greed, but be confident. My self-confidence was so strong that I traded better than the others and therefore I was able to grab the first prize. I can’t say that my gain was spectacular, but I didn’t encounter considerable losses either. That’s all because I wasn’t greedy.

2nd place – Mr. Suparmin from Indonesia
I’m really excited to be the champion: I’ve tried several times and finally I won! I’m rather involved in trading and I spend a lot of time on it. I need a few hours to focus and I wait patiently for the right moment to enter the trade. This contest was very useful for me and helped to improve my trading skills. The prize was also very attractive, so I plan to participate in a few more contests in the future. As for the success factors, my secret is patience. To win, you have to stay focused and observe the market movements, sticking to your strategy. The luck factor is also significant, but patience is the first key. I’m sure a lot of contestants are much better than me, but many traders are impatient and they use bigger lots, so it leads to failure. Apart from being able to wait and watch, I follow the market sentiment and trends. I read the news, the forums, Twitter, Facebook, etc. To open a trade, I use the indicators in Metatrader 4 such as EMA, stochastics or BB. My plan is not perfect, but it has always helped me to trade. And yes, I think that you have to practice trading for years to become a good trader. To be honest, I’ve never had any remarkable gains, but for me, the best profit is the consistent profit, so I can consider myself a successful trader.

3rd place – Mr. Rahardyan Widodo from Indonesia
I’m surely happy that I’m one of the winners. I’m a really active trader and I would be glad to participate in OctaFX contests later on - they help me educate myself and provide a few useful trading skills. I took part in this round of Champion contest because I was sure I’d be patient enough to win. I also think that one of the important success factors is being able to learn from the experts. In addition, my strategy includes waiting for the right moment and analysing the trends in a proper way. With the help of these ideas, I’ve never experienced any huge losses. I’ve been trading for some time now and I firmly believe that the right way to do things is to learn for as long as you can. A year or even more is a minimum amount of time to become a good trader.

The last runner – Mr. Manat Phusrisalap from Thailand
I would really like to improve my performance next time and defeat the other contestants. That’s my goal now, and I’m really sure I can do it. I’m even more motivated now than I was in the beginning of the contest. Trading takes a lot of my time, so why not? I use scalping as my most preferred trading tool so I think I’m going to use it next time to be the winner.

US retail sales and UK construction output data in focus today – Lloyds Bank

FXStreet (Delhi) – Nikesh Sawjani, Financial Economist at Lloyds Bank, lists down the key economic releases for the day.

Key Quotes

“Today’s US retail sales report represents the penultimate key economic data release that could impact on market expectations for next week’s FOMC meeting. Yet, in the absence of a wildly weak report, it is unlikely that the data, at this stage, can meaningfully change current expectations of a hike in the Fed Funds target rate. Instead, the report is expected to reinforce the positive mood about domestic demand with headline sales expected to strengthen to 0.4% m/m in November from 0.1% in October, underpinned by strong vehicle sales over the month.”

“Ahead of this, UK construction output for October provides the domestic focus. Despite ongoing signs of strength in survey-based indicators of construction output, activity in Q3 contracted by 2.2%. More timely evidence, including the construction PMI and BoE Agents’ scores, suggest the activity outlook for the sector is broadly positive. Notwithstanding the volatility in monthly estimates, we expect a modest 0.5% gain in October activity.”

“Elsewhere, in the euro area the focus will be on the next TLTRO. The last operation attracted a very low take up of just €15.5bn and with liquidity surpluses elevated and low prevailing market rates, a similarly benign take up is expected.”

“In terms of key speakers, BoE’s Martin Weale is scheduled to speak on pension reforms at the NIESR conference.”

      Dip your toe in the water Forex trading has never been easier. Now there are more and more top Forex brokers offering great deals, a strong educational infrastructure, and to attract business.
      This is great for you as a potential Forex trader, as long as you know some important things about Forex trading.
      One of the important points that you will face soon and that can be a cause of confusion for many people is the spread in Forex.
      In simple terms, this is the difference between the price at which you can buy a currency and the price at which you can sell it. This price difference allows the broker or other market makers to make a marginal profit on your trade.
      Do Forex Brokers Profit from Spread?
      The simple answer here is YES. To understand how this happens, we have to analyze the Forex trading market a little deeper:
      When placing a trade the currency you will see the presence of the two prices.
      This is the bid price and the asking price, or in simple terms, the price you have to pay to buy the currency, and the amount you will get to sell the currency. You will see little difference in this price.
      The price difference is not in many cases show a profit for your broker if they are market makers, although this is not always the case when you consider the following.
      Spread is usually very small, and it helps protect the market maker who facilitates trading, against any major change in the market between the order and the execution of your trades.
      Because almost all the top Forex brokers offer some form of free trade and free trade commission fees, deployment acts as a regional advantage only marginal for some.
      Spreading general type Maybe You See When Trading
      When you are trading Forex broker with one of the above, you may find two specific types of spreads most often.
      It is the deployment of fixed and variable spreads. Here is a brief overview of both, along with some pros and cons that some traders feel about each.
      Spreading fixed
      As suggested by the name, this type of spread offered by the broker and then remains constant for a specified period, usually in the long term. It certainly will not be changed during your trading day.
      Fixed spreads are usually offered on the most popular, the markets major currencies such as EUR / USD, USD / JPY, and many more are seen as a very stable market with only minor fluctuations and stable, consistent trading volume.
      Pro Fixed Spread
      Even in volatile markets, the spread will remain fixed. You can accurately predict and prepare for the fixed costs of trade.
      There is usually a lower capital requirement when dealing with fixed deployment. This makes it ideal for new traders.
      Fixed Spread Cons
      Although the cost of the spread will remain predictable and fixed, you may be exposed to skid. This is the price difference between when you order and when it is executed.
      Fixed spreads are usually higher than variable spread round to help provide protection against market changes.
      Variable deployment
      A variable spread again as the name suggests, is a reversal of the spread remains in the sense that it is changing and can move smoothly throughout the trading session depends on the volume and market volatility.
      The majority of the top Forex brokers will offer a variable spread mainly on market risk or less popular to see much change in the price. This includes minor currency pairs Forex, Forex trading, and commodities.
      Pro Distribution of variables
      With a variable spread, you are likely to experience slippage on your trades.
      The variable spreads can be a good guide to the current market liquidity and sentiment.
      More often than not, a variable spread is lower than a fixed spread and thus can provide a better deal.
      Variable Spreading Cons
      A little more unpredictable if you try to plan the right trading costs.
      It can change a lot in a short time depending on the market and your broker.
      Knowing and Understanding How to Manage the Spread
      This advice is especially true if you use a variable spread of your broker. There are several ways in which you can try to minimize the spread of your own for Forex trading.
      The first is to try and choose a broker that offers the best value in a spread based on what you know to be your own trading style and needs.
      If you are not sure about this then the right place to start is the Forex demo account. It is offered by the majority of brokers and equipped with a realistic simulation trading environment without risk.
      Since the market, and therefore the deployment, can change a lot based on the news, it is a very good idea to look at the economic calendar provided by your broker.
      It will let you know where the major economic event that came. From there, you can work to decide how you think the spread may be affected.
      Finally, one of the biggest key when it comes to deployment is volume. With that in mind then, chances are you'll find a lower deployment during the main trading session hours worldwide.
      This means that New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo. Outside these hours, you may see an increase in your spread.
      Which Forex Spread Type Should You Choose?
      It really depends on your trading style, though usually, if you are new to trading, a spread is recommended because it can give you an accurate closer to the cost of trade and capital requirements typically decreases.
      For an experienced trader, or certainly, if you are trading on margin, you might want to consider a variable spread to their better value for money, especially at high volume.
      Hope you find it useful. Thank You!

      Forex trading is a learning experience. How do you tell a lot about the psychology of your trading?
      Do you trade emotionally, if you over trade when you see a favorable offer, or if you strategize a lot before the trade?
      But most importantly, how you train and monitor these things?
      That is why it is very important to make psychologically trade journals. This is the go-to weapon for the trading situation is important because it will contain your behavioral tendencies. It makes you realize the pattern of trade that you do not have to follow.
      Do not know where you'll be one of those things. But that's when your psychological trading journal will be useful. When you know your trading patterns, it helps you to stay away from people who may incur losses. So, here are some tips to maximize your trading journal:
      1) BALANCING POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE
      It is easy to write about your mistakes so you do not make them anymore. But you also have to write about the positives. For example, if strategy A and B fails, you can write in your journal. In addition, you also have to write about strategies C and D work.
      Many Forex trading site describes the different errors that traders usually do. Forex Academy is one website that not only shows the error but also tells a different way you can fix it.
      So, your journal should have two parts. The one with the negatives, which contain trading mistakes you should avoid, and secondly, the positive that talks about some of your successful trading strategies. This will help you to work on the negative and turn it into a positive future.
      2) ALWAYS HAVE THE PURPOSE OF TRADING
      Just follow your friends or fellow traders are now the way forward in Forex trading. You should always have a goal-oriented approach.
      For example, if you make a few mistakes on the first trading day, you should aim not to repeat them the next day or next week. Similarly, if you have a satisfactory ROI on your first trade, you should look to follow that strategy and get more in the second attempt.
      However, make sure that you assess the condition of the market while trading. If you are successful the first day, it does not mean the market will remain like that forever. So, keep an eye on the constantly changing market conditions.
      3) ALWAYS HAVE AN OPEN MIND
      As already mentioned, there is so much to learn from a professional Forex trading even would say that they do not have full knowledge of the market. Keeping an open mind is the best way to maximize your trading journal. Learning does not have to be limited to correcting your mistakes.
      There are many new techniques you'll find you start to trade. Do not avoid off this strategy because you trade successfully without assistance.
      Forex trading can be tough at first, but if you have a journal, hard days will be the pillars of success you soon.
