What to expect

Simon’s Scalpers wild minute 

This FX trading strategy is designed for trading significant news events such as Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP). The average trade typically last just a few minutes, maybe five at most. Ignoring the actual data and watching only a one minute chart this system requires quick fingers and total discipline but adds a great trading strategy to a trader’s arsenal.

Simon’s Primary FX trading strategy 

Not everybody is sitting in front of their trading screen all day, every day. This trading system uses either the four-hour or daily charts on major FX pairs. The system can be used as a primary FX trading strategy that can be complimented with other shorter systems such as the scalpers wild minute. Using a pair of simple moving averages the system gives regular entries for both short and long trades and profitable trades can run for days or even weeks (tie frame dependent).

Shaun's Top-Down FX approach 

In this portion of the workshop, Shaun will help go through simple top down filters to help identify the strongest trends in the FX market and which currency pairings might be setting up for high probability opportunities, highlighting some of his favourite technical tools for entry and exits. In addition Shaun will run through a volatility stop and position sizing method to help traders manage the risk of trading in FX markets.
