Are the Feds in on it?

Sabotage! A market mover mole is among us…are the Fed’s in on it?

This is your binary option and forex video news update for August 24th through the 28th, 2015.

A rat, a spy, a saboteur or a mole, call it what you will, but it appears that the fix is in. Question is…are the Fed’s in on it?

Feds in on it

It’s time to ask some serious questions about what’s happening and who’s pulling the strings. Is it a good idea for the Fed’s to release timely and highly sensitive information to the media before releasing it to the public? Especially, when it has “big time” impact on market volatility. What kind of public trust discretion will the media exercise? Are there unscrupulous benefits to be had by big money player’s in the market that can simply pay off their journalistic conspirators?

Whether it be a leak that takes place 18 minutes, 15 minutes, 1 minute or 1 second before the official release, then the Fed’s (and the market’s validity) is in serious question.

The “accidental” leak prior to the official release of the Fed minutes this last week has tainted the trust of being on a fair playing field when trading the markets. The “Ooops, we did it gain” approach is becoming more than just a concern. Now, who will be held responsible for changes in procedure and will any “real action” be taken?

A “mea culpa” from financial media giant Bloomberg, and a slap on the wrist, will not be enough to cull these “accidental” leaks from taking place in the future. It will most assuredly happen again if new measures are not implemented by the Fed’s.

Now, of course, this is nothing new and a lot of traders already think that the fix is in. If this is the case, what are you doing to capitalize on market movement even when the fix is in?

If you lost your butt this last week because of the “accidental” leak then guess what?…it’s on YOU! Trader’s losses could be attributed to a couple of primary factors:

The foremost reason trader’s fell short due to the leak is because they were all in on their tech trades using auto-bot or algo trading systems. The human element of trading was absent. When the auto bots read the market wrong it was too late to recover. The “algo” trading system was beating to the wrong rhythm and that can mean there’s hell to pay out of your trading account…but don’t take it out on your furry little fuzzy auto bot trading system because it’s only doing what it was built to do.

Due diligence is essential and this means checking out the fundamental’s as well as the technical’s. If you need more on this, check out out our free e-book “The Simple Art Of Trading”. It will provide you with the psychological edge to be a consistently winning trader.

The solution to earning profit even if the fix is in is easy: trading systems. Why?…This last week was the perfect example of why you don’t take you the trader out of the equation. You are an integral part of the trading process in achieving profit and curbing losses.

When you utilize a manual trading system (and I don’t recommend even attempting to trade without one) you need to have one that compliments what you’re seeing as a trader as the market moves. Every system is going to have its alerts for a potential profit making trade, but it is up to you to make the basic confirmations of the trade before jumping in. This is the human element that can’t ever be replaced by an auto bot trader. Now is the time to take control of your trading and consistently achieve profit every time you sit down for a trading session.

Now, what to look out for on this week’s releases that can have you “in the money” if you utilize the trading systems and make your basic confirmations as a trader.

For the Asian sessions look out for Kiwi’s q/q Inflation Expectations and Trade Balance, as well as a speaking engagement on Wednesday for the Aussie, from Governor Stevens.

The Euro will have German Ifo Business Climate and for the USD pay attention to the Consumer Confidence Index, m/m Core Durable Goods Orders, q/q Preliminary GDP and Unemployment Claims.

So, who’s pulling the strings on these leaks? Is the market rigged?…and are the Fed’s making it possible by releasing sensitive info to the media before the public? Who’s responsible and how can it be curbed in the future?
