    Hello Admin, and thank you for your post! On behalf of myself and everyone here at FXCM, welcome to the forum community!


    Why are there two "Introduce Yourself" threads?

    That's a good observation Admin. The other "Introduce Yourself" section of the forum is in the FXCM Micro account section of the forum. This is the FXCM Standard account section of the forum. We just thought it would be nice to have "Introduce Yourself" threads in both sections. But please, feel free to post with comments, feedback, or questions on any section of the forum. For those of you who don't know, the other "Introduce Yourself" section of the forum can be found by clicking here.


    We look forward to your contributions on the forum Admin!

    Thank you again for your post Admin! Please feel free to post with additional questions or contact me directly at julius@fxcm.com

    Hello advancedframing, and thank you for your post! On behalf of myself and everyone here at FXCM, welcome to the forum community!


    How can I manually input the time to capture the high and the low of GBP/USD for a specified time?

    You can do this directly from Marketscope 2.0 by following the simple steps below:

    Step 1. Choose the time zone that you would like to see your charts in. For the purposes of this example, the charts are set to my "Local" (PST) time. Please click here for more information about how you can change the time zone on your charts.

    Step 2. Please click on "Charts" on the main menu bar on the top left hand corner of the Trading Station II platform, and then click on "Create Marketshot...". You can also click on the Yellow Clock Icon from the Navigation Menu to the right of the Chat Button.


    Step 3. The "Create Marketshot" window will appear. Please choose the Symbol and the Period. If you are looking for the high and low of a specific time, I would suggest choosing the "m1" chart. Then for "Show Data Range", please choose "Other". Then choose your date parameters. For the purposes of this example, let's say that we wanted to take a look at the high and the low for the minute of 5:00PM my local time (PST) on July 13, 2011. I like to choose my date parameters five minutes before, and five minutes after the minute that I would like to see the high and low for. Once everything looks good please click on "OK" to confirm.


    Step 4. Find the candlestick that represents the time that you would like to check the high and low for.


    Please choose whether you would like to see the high and the low for the "bid" or the "ask" by clicking either the "B" or the "A" from the toolbar. Then if you click directly on the candlestick, the "data tooltip" box will appear which is highlighted in green below. This box shows you the open, close, high, the low, and depending on what type of chart you have up, the date, hour, min, tick, etc. for the corresponding candlestick. The date and time on the bottom highlighted in red corresponds to the candlestick we are looking at.



    We can see that the High and Low for the Bid price for GBPUSD on 07/13/2011 17:00 my local time (PST) were 1.61070 and 1.61035 respectively.

    We can see that the High and Low for the Ask price for GBPUSD on 07/13/2011 17:00 my local time (PST) were 1.61095 and 1.61058 respectively.

    Please click here for more information about the differences between the Bid and Ask prices on the chart.

    Please click here for more information about how to read data for candlestick charts.

    Hello Every one

    Hi I'm Harsha

    I'm a trader from India, apart from forex I trade the Indian & European stock markets .

    I have a Standard account with FXCM UK . I'm a swing/positional trader.

    I have 2 years experience trading stocks , but I'm very new to forex . It's only been 6 months now

    & I love the FOREX market very much. Currencies tend to trend very well , better than stocks, and chart patterns work beautifully with higher gains & good accuracy.

    As I'm relatively new to trading forex & financial markets in general, I would like to learn from other experienced traders & also would like to share some of my strategies that I found very useful.

    Hope I get permission to post in the forum.

    Regards

    Harsha Bhuvanendra Kumar
