USD/CHF



Just getting to know this quiet, not so volatile currency pair USD/CHF, plus the Aussie pairs AUD/USD and AUD/JPY

For intra-day analysis
Price breaks at 1.0588 will have a high probability of a short term bullish
Price breaks below 1.0535 will have a high probability of short term bear
The key in every entry, before entry are: Patience, Momentum and Timing!

In the bigger picture, USD/CHF is possibly in the process of forming a medium term sideway pattern that started as the long term bottom of 0.9634 (2008 low). The pair might continue to stay in converging range of 0.9641/1.2296 for a while. A break of either 0.9916 support or 1.1729 resistance is needed to indicate that USD/CHF is back into a directional trend. Otherwise, medium term outlook will remain neutral.

What is...



Margin is a performance bond, or good faith deposit, to ensure against trading losses. The margin requirement allows traders to hold a position much larger than the account value. There are a lot of brokers' online trading platform has margin management capabilities, which allow for this high leverage. Some brokers have the most lenient margin requirement which is .5%.

In the event that funds in the account fall below margin requirements, the Brokers' Dealing Desk will close some or all open positions. This prevents clients' accounts from falling into a negative balance, even in a highly volatile, fast moving market.

For example, let's say you have an account with $10,000. That means you have $10,000 of usable margin. If you use $7,000 to buy 7 lots of USD/JPY, you now have $3,000 of usable margin left, meaning that you are allowed to lose $3,000 before you are under the margin requirement. The account equity remains at $10,000 until you begin to make or lose money on the position. Now, if the USD/JPY decreases to the point that you end up losing the $3,000 which is left in your account, then Broker's Dealing Desk will close all of your positions to ensure that you do not lose more than you have in your account.

Managing your risk in the financial market: If the equity in your account drops below the margin required to maintain your open positions, the dealing desk will close all open positions. This guarantees limited risk. You also have the ability to track your margin in realtime. In the accounts window you will see 2 columns: used margin; usable margin. The used margin indicates funds currency pledged towards open positions. You can think of usable margin as your “wiggle” room. Once usable margin reaches zero, a margin call will ensue & all positions will be closed, are subject to liquidation at the prevailing market prices by dealing desk this is the margin watcher feature.

Simply put.. Margin is the amount of necessary money needed to place/maintain a position.
Margin Level Percentage is calculated by taking:

Equity/Margin x 100 - Margin Level Percentage
Equity (your true Account Value) is your Balance +/- any open positions.In normally leveraged accounts.
