Intraday Alerts: FAQs
What are Intraday Alerts?
Intraday Alerts are near-term technical trade set ups that we are tracking in the market. These trade set ups will either be at, or near, the potential execution level for the set up.
What is the strategy behind Intraday Alerts ?
Intraday Alerts are trades based on technical and sentiment patterns.
When are Intraday Alerts issued?
Intraday Alerts will be emailed during the London & New York sessions.
What is the trade frequency?
The Intraday Alerts are executed when specific price patterns develop on the H1/H4 chart timeframes. Depending on market volatility you can expect to receive 3-5 actionable alerts per week in volatile markets or 1-3 actionable alerts in less volatile markets.
Will Intraday Alerts be accompanied with specific order levels?
Yes, we will issue an email when an Intraday pattern meets our specific risk reward ratio. You will receive an email with an entry, stop, stop to entry and target (an example of which can be seen below). Emails will be issued in advance of the trade triggering and provide ample time to enter orders. Subscribers will also receive intra-trade management updates should we have additional trade management instructions.
You don’t specify a trade size in your trade ideas, how do we know what size to trade?
Trade risk comes down to personal preference. Our trade ideas are executed with a max risk of 0.7% per trade idea in line with our own risk profile.
Will there be times when a trade is exited before it hits its target?
Yes, there are occasions when a trade is exited ahead of target. There are also occasions when a trade is held beyond target. Again, you will always be notified via email alert if there is any adjustment to the original trade instructions.
If I get an order to buy a pair when market is below the issued buy level, can I just enter there because I am getting a better price?
No, all trade levels given are specific levels for entry and are given for a valid reason. Please only enter at the specified trade levels (+5pips from the entry level quoted to guarantee a fill). Any trades entered outside of the specific levels given are entered at the traders own discretion and performance is unrelated to the given trade idea.
Can I exit trades ahead of target or hold them longer than target if I wish?
You can certainly, but again, these decisions would be made at your own discretion and so performance will be unrelated to the trade idea given. All trade ideas are given with the exact parameter for you to follow including entry price, stop loss and target. All subsequent trade management manoeuvres such as moving the stop will be communicated via an email alert.
I saw an Intraday Alert where price traded the stop loss level given but the trade remained in play, though mine was stopped out. How come?
Please make sure to always include your broker spread in addition to the specific trade levels. For example if a buy stop is given as .7191 and your broke spread on that pair is 2 pips, please adjust your stop to .7193. Our trade alerts followers use many different brokers with different spreads so we cannot advise for each trade but please remember to always factor your broker spread into your trade parameters to avoid these situations.
Trading spot currencies involves substantial risk and there is always the potential for loss. Your trading results may vary. Because the risk factor is high in the foreign exchange market trading, only genuine “risk” funds should be used in such trading. If you do not have the extra capital that you can afford to lose, you should not trade in the foreign exchange market. No “safe” trading system has ever been devised, and no one can guarantee profits or freedom from loss. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk. Variables such as the ability to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses as well as maintaining adequate liquidity are material points which can adversely affect actual real trading results.
