Forex encyclopedia

Forex charts serve as framework of technical analysis, and besides allow monitoring behavior of trading contracts by eye. We will now discover the following notions, which are often used for reviewing price charts: • open price – the price of the first transaction within the reviewed time interval; • close price – the last price for the present time interval; • maximum – the largest price for a certain time interval; • minimum – the least price within time interval; The most popular time-frames are: W1 (week), D1 (day), H4 (4 hours), H1 (1 hour), M30 (half of hour), M15 (15 minutes), M5 (5 minutes). The simplest type of Forex chart is the linear – jogged line, which more often is built for close prices.
Moving Averages as a lagging indicator, confirming trend rather than anticipating it, is considered less reliable by many. But, combining Moving Averages with Fibonacci number, and following price action around it, can give quite a powerful signal. In this case, a Simple Moving Averages on Close price, combined with Fibonacci number (89) as it period. In short, price can either “break through” SMA89 or “bounce back” from it. But then, as can be seen in the following picture, there are many breaks as well as bounces; and not all of them are valid signals which shows profitable opportunities.
