Trading Expansions of Range and Volume
Equity market cycles provide opportunity in every phase of liquidity. The greatest possibilities are evident when expansion-of-range-and-volume (XRV) price activity propels a stock rapidly higher or lower. XRV moves occur when institutions have directed their traders to buy or liquidate large equity positions. The stock in trade overwhelms supply or demand, pushing price in a rapid directional move higher (in the case of buying), or lower (in the case of selling). The resulting XRV chart pattern affords traders the opportunity to capitalize on institutional activity, which tends to continue over the course of several trading sessions.
For investors or traders who have always restricted themselves to shares and maybe perhaps funds, might never have thought about the possibilities available by broadening their trading horizons into the curreny markets, and even to day trading rather than long-term investing. This guide looks at the basic function of the forex market and the advantages and disadvantages of day trading in forex.
Forex trading is the act of buying or selling one currency in exchange for another with the aim of benefiting from the differential in value between both currencies within a given period of time.

Normally, when you make investments, you buy assets on the open market – for example, you might buy stocks, commodities or currency pairs. However, it is also possible to make investments without owning an asset at all – in fact, this is becoming an increasingly popular way of investing.
This type of investment is known as a contract for difference (CFD), and is essentially a contract between yourself and a CFD broker.
In my last lesson you learned about trading a long straddle, using the example of WTI crude oil. In this lesson, you will learn to use the power of an options strategy to execute more than one option at the same time for news announcements and major economic events. A popular strategy to take advantage of an expected increase in volatility is that very same long straddle.
For example, on Thursday February 26, the second estimate of UK gross domestic product (GDP) for the fourth quarter of 2014 will be released. This is an event that will move markets, but is not a major event but can often lead to higher volatility in the immediate aftermath.
