Market Movers Episode #16: Risk Reward Ratio, Digesting the

What is a risk-reward ratio and why is it important? We explain and also discuss the right and wrong way to incorporate the ratio in your system.  Why did the dollar rally on the FOMC meeting? 5 reasons are provided and we look forward. Last but not least, we discuss the recent wobbles around China.

Welcome to a new episode of  Market Movers, presented by Lior Cohen of Trading NRG and Yohay Elam of Forex Crunch.You are welcome to listen, subscribe and  provide feedback.

The topics:

  1. Risk reward ratio: This is actually quite simple, but do you apply it on every trade?  What is an optimal ratio and what is an acceptable one? In order to apply the ratio to trade, what are the pitfalls? We run through the scenarios that too many traders neglect.
  2. The dollar rally on the FOMC: The statement was generally dovish and interest rate hikes are not coming too soon, so why did the dollar rally? It’s the accumulated gains of small tweaks, that could mount in the next meetings. Market reactions varied and will likely continue varying on the different monetary policies.
  3. China: The world’s No. 2 economy is slowing down as desired, but is it too much? We dive into the  different forces around the economic giant, and the implications for the Australian dollar.

Yohay Elam: Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I've accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
