ZenFXTrades is a trade alerts service for people who are serious about making consistent profits in the FX market.
ZenFX Trade Alerts are generated by a proprietary swing trading methodology based on classical technical analysis combined with proprietary insights. More about the method is explained in the Q&A page. Pairs currently traded are EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, USDJPY, EURJPY, GBPJPY, AUDJPY.
This service is aimed at experienced retail traders who want to make consistent profits. Beginners to markets may follow the trade alerts as a means of gaining insight into financial markets; however, it is advisable not to trade serious money in financial markets until one develops the discipline and mental attitudes necessary to be successful traders.
How the Alerts Service Works
To receive these alerts you need to have your own twitter account and do the following:
- Pay the subscription fee by clicking the PayPal button in the sidebar. Visa/MC credit cards are accepted through PayPal. The subscription is monthly recurring; you can cancel at any time. First-time subscribers get a one-month free trial of the alerts service, after which billing starts automatically unless cancelled.
- After payment, please send a request to follow @zenfxtrades from your twitter account.
- You will then be added to the private twitter group that receives the ZenFX Trade Alerts. You will also receive an email with information on the risk management (aka money management) rules to be used with this system.
How to Trade Using the ZenFX Trade Alerts
This service is for intermediate/experienced retail traders who have progressed beyond the basics. The subscriber is expected to have basic knowledge of the FX market and should already have an account with an FX broker or platform. The trader should know how to open new trades, set stop loss orders, limit orders, etc. The exact procedure to do this differs from platform to platform; the trader is expected to be fully familiar with his/her own platform.
A Disciplined approach is absolutely necessary when following this system, as for any financial trading activity. FX markets are open 24 hours a day, from late Sunday to late Friday (gmt). Signals can occur at any time, so the trader has to be alert and ready at all times. This can be very stressful and you should prepare for the stress and disruption to normal life trading can cause.
The Q&A page has more details about the philosophy and the risk management rules underpinning the SwingFX method.
Evidence of Profitability of the ZenFX Method
Warning & Disclaimer: FX trading is a high-risk activity with potential for losses much bigger than anticipated. Entire accounts can be wiped out in a minute by an unforeseen event, e.g. the Japanese earthquake+tsunami in 2011, or during market breakdowns e.g. when the SNB removed the Swiss Franc peg in January 2015. Please be cautious and disciplined in your money management. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
The ZenFX method has been developed and perfected over 7 years of intensive trading and study of the spot FX market. The objective is to be consistently profitable over a period of weeks and months, not necessarily profitable in each trade.
Starting from early January 2016 all trades have been tweeted in real-time under the twitter handle @zenfxtrades. At the end of each month, the ‘Performance’ page is updated with evidence for the month. It contains a log file of all the tweets made in that month together with a worksheet of the trades performance in Excel format. Readers are welcome to examine tweets and trade logs of the past months and judge for themselves. Details of how the model account profit/loss is calculated is explained in the Q&A.
Subscribers will receive a one month free trial of the service during which time they can assess if this service is suitable for them. You may also cancel your subscription at any time and it will stop at the next monthly anniversary of your subscription. No refunds are given for partial months.
The blog page on this site contains occasional commentary on the markets and psychology. I do not provide continuous commentary on markets or the reasoning behind each trade alert. There are hundreds of sites on the internet for commentary. Looking for reasons distracts attention from price action in the market. We should just focus on trading the signs the market is showing us and try to make profits, consistently.
Wish you a profitable journey in FX ! All the best.
