Forex trading is for those who enjoy speculation and the potential for huge returns. The foreign exchange currency market is the largest financial market around — trading daily amounts between 3.2-4 trillion USD. These figures are 35 times larger than those of the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) and even 4 times larger than the world GDP!

Forex is the most liquid market in the world, thus making it easy to trade most currencies.According to the Wall Street Journal Europe, the most commonly traded currencies on the Forex market are the U.S. Dollar (USD), the Japanese Yen (JPY), the Euro (EUR), the British Pound (GPB), the Canadian Dollar (CAD), the Australian Dollar (AUD), and the Swiss Franc (CHF). Here is a small infographic which pictures who trades forex more than anyone else in this planet.

I am sending you one AFL code.this code show very fantastic performance,but in real time chart its signal change as the trand change.like it give buy signal in 5 minute chart,you make trade as per the signal,but suddenly in 4th signal the trand chage the signal get disapper,
Why this happen? please review and reply if possible.

/*
The basic definition of an ‘up’ fractal is a bar high that is both higher than the two bars immediately preceding it
and higher than the two bars immediately following it.
The lows of the bars are NOT considered in determining the up fractal progression.

If two bars in the progression have equal highs followed by two consecutive bars with lower highs,
then a total of six bars rather than the usual five bars will make up the progression.
The first High becomes the counting fractal. Reverse for ‘down’ fractals.

The 5 bar formation works best on Daily or longer time frame charts.For intraday data charts we often use 9 bar, 13 bar and 21 bar formations for fractal counting

Dear Sir,

However in India currency trading is not permitted. Right?

Exactly! For more brief discussion visit Forex and CFD trading in India legality
