The momentum is an oscillator that represents the change in parities over a predetermined period of time. In other words, it is a display that indicates how much the corresponding parity has gained or lost in a specified period of time.
Momentum is a market anomaly that finance theory is difficult to explain. The fact that the price of any financial product is rising does not guarantee that prices will rise in the future. According to the effective market hypothesis, the increase in prices and the changes in demand and demand are determined by new information coming from the financial market.
The momentum indicator is calculated as follows;
Momentum = Last Closing / x Days Previous Closing * 100
The momentum indicator is interpreted in two ways:
Method; it is possible to use it as a trend monitor. When the indicator bottoms up and turns up, AL should make a peak at the indicator, and when it goes down, the SAT should be decided. You should keep in mind that when the momentum indicator has a new peak or dip (compared to the peak and past in the past), the current trend will continue, but the rate of increase in prices slows down and the effects of senescence factors are weaker and prices may begin to fall after a while. Nevertheless, you must change the position of the signal produced by the indicator, waiting for the price movement to confirm it.
For example, the indicator peaked and turned, and you should wait for prices to fall.
The Method Momentum indicator can also function as an indicator of the future. When prices are rising and new peaks are made, the show can not do the new peak or the prices do not bottom out when the new bottom. In this case, incompatibility occurs and it is necessary to evaluate it as an early signal of the trend change.
The use of 3 of the MACD indicators is an important and widely used interpretation method.
The volatility, which began at the beginning of the 1970s with the end of the Bretton Woods agreement, allowed swap-like derivatives to pass over. With the contribution of technology that develops day by day, besides banks and similar financial institutions, individual investors have the opportunity to trade easily with very narrow spread ratios in leverage derivative markets when it comes day by day. Starting in 2012, the forex markets in Turkey, which have developed especially in the last 10 years, started to be monitored by financial institutions providing the opportunity to trade in forex markets under CMB regulation, and interest of big and small investors who want to take advantage of the opportunity of higher volume transactions by leverage ratio started to increase.
Let’s go over an example to clarify the concept of “leverage” that is often used in Forex markets and seen as a risk factor
by investors. Suppose that Mr. Collin, who opened a forex account at Finance online FX with a leverage ratio of 1/100, deposited $1,000 as his initial deposit. The maximum position size that Mr. Collin can open with this guarantee is 100.000 USD (1.000 x 100). The maximum position size should be underlined here. Because of the trader’s trading platform,
the nominal size of the position opened on the order screen can also be seen, as is the value in lots. If Mr. Collin is trading in the USD / TRY range on MetaTrader4 platform, one of the most frequently used trading platforms for forex markets, he will open the 1 lot position by selecting the field “1” in the order screen. The nominal size of the position it opens is also 100,000 USD. Now, Mr. Collin’s account of 1,000 USD increases or decreases to include the profit or loss of a USD 100,000 position in the USDTRY price per pips rise / fall.
LIMITATIVE PROCESSING SAMPLES
As we can see from our examples, we can open a high volume position with low leverage. The risk here is that investors should use high leverage to open up more positions. That is, if Mr. Sam continues to open positions with high lot ratios by saying that he has left 99,000 USD behind the 1 lot process that he has opened using 1/100 leverage, then the leverage ratio may start to pose a risk for investors. However, if Mr. Sam continues to take action in the direction of the strategies he has created and take his risk appetite without taking another position or open a limited position, he may wait for USD / TRY to keep his position for a long period of time, even if he anticipates moving. Forex markets and leverage opportunities can be a risk factor because the amount of money earned is directly proportional to the risk involved. However, adjusting this risk level is entirely at the discretion of the investor.
