What information can I find on the forex trading blog?

Pepperstone is passionate about giving its clients all the tools and education they require to become better traders. On Pepperstone’s forex trading blog, you will find an array of information to help you on your journey.

This will vary from educational pieces, to forecasting the next potential move on Bitcoin or other popular trading products.  Do you want to know your Doji from your Hammer? Your wedge from your triangle? If the answer is yes, then read on.  

Educate to accumulate

In the words of Benjamin Franklin ‘An investment in knowledge pays the best dividends.’  

Trading and technical analysis can be overpowering at the onset of your trading journey. Time spent on this subject can indeed pay dividends.

Technical analysis techniques not only help you build a trading system, but they also help you define risk and reward. This is where to place your stop and target.

In the words of Ifan Wei’s ‘(Technical) patterns don’t work 100% of the time but they are still critical because they define your risk. If you ignore patterns and focus on hunches, feelings, and hot tips, just forget about achieving consistency’.

There are many educational segments to choose from with regards to technical analysis and trading techniques in the forex trading blog.
