About the FX Model Portfolio
The Rivkin FX and Liquid Markets strategy will be provided with ad hoc trade recommendations that could come on any trading day. Typically, we enter a trade using a stop entry, meaning that the price must move in our desired direction before the trade is opened. Each trade comes with a stop loss and target level. The stop loss level is typically updated on a daily basis, and trailed behind the price as it moves in our favour. This has the effect of either reducing risk or locking in profits. There is also a time stop, whereby trade duration is limited to a maximum of 20 days.
How does FX Model work?
The FX trading strategy is based on daily chart analysis, and the individual trades have a typical trade duration of between 4 and 8 days. While this may seem short as compared to our stock market recommendations, it is considerable longer than many other intra-day FX services. The FX strategy is a series of individual trades, meaning trades are managed on their own merits, and not as a portfolio. There will be times when there are quite a few trades open at once, while at other times, activity will be less.
