The FX & Liquid Markets Strategy aims to identify periods of consolidation or reduced volatility following a strong trending move. It can then take either a short or long position based on the continuation of the prior trend. However, trades must pass an acceptable risk to reward ratio before being confirmed. The strategy is based on daily price data, meaning new trades, and trade management changes, are known soon after the close of the US trading session. These changes are then published by our analysts shortly after, with members receiving both an email and SMS. The strategy currently examines ten different foreign exchange pairs and four spot precious metals over a lookback period of approximately 50 days. Furthermore, while each trade has a set target price, by utilising a stop loss we are also able to lock in profits and reduce the capital at risk per trade.
The FX strategy provides performance that is independent from the movements in equity markets and therefore provides good diversification when coupled with our other strategies.
*Performance data for the FX strategy relies on backtested data prior to 1 Feb 2016 and live results post that date **Past performance is no guarantee to future performance. ^Rivkin advise you not to rely solely on back tested data or statistics in order to make any trading decisions. We suggest you contact our relationship managers to arrange access to our live membership site on trial basis. Here you will be able to view all actual historical trading recommendations (and results) provided to clients over the last 20 years which can be used to inform your own assessment of the potential returns based on your individual situation.
The FX strategy is our most active strategy but holds positions for a relatively short amount of time, usually measured in days or weeks.
