Vantagepointtrading – Forex Strategies Course For Weekly Charts
How to analyze weekly charts (slight alterations compared to how we analyze other time frames).
Vantagepointtrading – Forex Strategies Course For Weekly Charts
If you have limited time but want to capitalize on the forex market by only looking at your charts once per week, or, if you want to increase your current trading income without impeding on your current strategies, then the Forex Strategy Course For Weekly Charts will help you with that. Trading off the weekly charts has the potential to provide a consistent revenue stream (with practice) and once you know the strategies and what to look for, it only takes about 20 to 30 minutes each weekend to find new trades and manage current ones.

Trading on forex weekly charts can be done in conjunction with other forms of trading, such as day trading or swing trading. Since trades, based on this weekly chart strategy, are only updated once per week you still have all your time during the week to implement your other strategies (or go to your day job, school, etc.).

The Benefits of Utilizing These Forex Strategies on The Weekly Charts
—Will likely see a higher win-rate than shorter-term strategies
Win-rate is how many trades you are profitable on as a percentage, so winning 8 out of 10 trades would be a 80% win-rate. Because the weekly charts take longer to form, there is less “noise” on the chart to confuse us. Also, once momentum gets going on the weekly chart, it tends to keep going (at least enough for us to make a profit). On the weekly charts, I expect my win rate to be 70%* or higher.

—Get paid daily for every trade taken.
That’s right. I only take trades that will actually pay me interest, daily, to hold the position. This is very beneficial because some of our trades may last weeks, but by taking trades that give us daily interest we are getting a little something for our time each day. These small interest payments increase the gains realized on our winning trades, and also help to offset any losing trades we may experience.

—Hardly any time commitment.
It will take at least several months to learn and pra ctice this strategy and start producing a consistent profit (you need to learn what trades to take and which to leave alone). But, once we know what to look for, we only need to be looking at our charts for about 20 to 30 minutes each weekend. Trades are placed and updated once trading begins for the week–preferably Sunday night (or whenever trading begins Sunday/Monday morning in your location).
—Lots of small winners, a few big winners and a couple small losers.
That is the typical return distribution I expect to see on these trades. Lots of small gains of about 1%, 2% or 3% (based on account balance), some losers of 1% or 2% (the most I am willing to lose), and then some bigger gains of 4%, 5%, or more, when bigger trends develop. These percentage are all based on the account balance. So we are making those returns on the entire account, not just capital deployed (this all has to do with selecting the proper position size so we are utilizing capital effectively). We can increase or decrease returns by increasing/decreasing the amount we risk on each trade.

—Can still trade other strategies.
Trading the weekly charts can be done on its own, or while trading other strategies. It takes up so little time, and not much capital, that you should still be able to proceed with your normal day and swing trading strategies without being significantly affected by your trades on the weekly chart.

—Can maintain good percentage returns whether trading a $4,000 account, or $4,000,000.
That is pretty rare, actually. Most shorter-term strategies start to drop off in profitability (percentage terms) the more capital that is deployed. It is much harder to day trade for a high percentage return with $5,000,000 than it is with $5,000. The market has a harder time absorbing larger and larger amounts of capital in small time frames, so day traders get capped on their percentage returns the larger their account grows. But with trading on the weekly charts, a trader can continue to grow their account and continue to see good returns because the trade is based on a larger time frame.

Disadvantages of Weekly Charts? I Wouldn’t Call Them That…
Weekly charts provide us with cleaner movements and tend to produce higher win rates than shorter-term charts, in my experience. So is there drawbacks? Sort of….but not really.
—On weekly charts we are taking fewer trades and utilizing less leverage.
That means our return potential is lower than with day trading, for example. With day trading we can potentially take several trades a day, racking up gains and realizing profits very quickly. On the weekly chart, our trades may last weeks or even months. So we have less return potential…but remember: you can trade weekly charts and still do the other forms of trading you enjoy. Trading the weekly chart is just a bonus (or can be used on its own).
—Need at least $4,000 in starting capital.
Without that much, you won’t likely be able to utilize the weekly strategy effectively. (Absolute minimum would be about $2,000, but preferably more).

—This course does not cover forex basics.
We are just looking at trading weekly charts in this course. If you are just starting out in forex trading, it is recommended you read the Forex Strategies Guide for Day and Swing Traders before tackling the Weekly Charts course. That guide is a great introduction to forex, and also provides the background for some of the strategies used on the weekly charts. That said, I trade differently on the weekly charts compared other time frames, which is why weekly charts deserve their own course.
