We are all Slack at Tokyo Traders Club!

By Laurence | Jun 03 2016

       We are making the move to Slack! If you aren't familiar with Slack, it's an instant messaging and collaboration system on steroids. There is a lot more functionality with Slack and here are just a few: Channels: Slack’s channels help us focus by enabling you to separate messages, discussions and notifications by purpose, strategy or topic. #Channels are open to everyone to join in the discussions, and locked channels are private and accessible by invite only. Direct Messages: When you need to send a message to one person instead of a group, Slack provides traditional instant messaging functionality for you to do so. Share Your Files: Sharing documents is one of the basics of collaboration. Slack enables you to share all types of files. Add comments, star for later reference, and it’s all completely searchable. You can also link to files you have stored outside of Slack as well. Just paste the link and that document is immediately in sync and searchable too. Search: Slack's search functionality enables you to find key information quickly, even if it’s inside of a document you’ve shared. Notifications can be a tricky feature: too many and you start ignoring them; too few and something might slip through the cracks. Slack enables you to fine-tune your notifications (by channel, keywords and more) so you can focus on your highest priorities. Platforms: No matter where you go, Slack can come with you with their mobile apps for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone (beta). At your desk, Slack offers apps for Mac, Windows and Linux (beta). To get started you can download the app here. We are in the process of sending out invites to all…


New TTC Support Center is now open!

By Laurence | Jun 01 2016

Hello Traders, We are proud to announce that we have moved into our new office in Shibuya, Tokyo. I can only describe it as something out of Batman. On the outside it appears to be a typical little Japanese shop complete with our own “garagara” shutter. But on the inside it a completely modernized office full of all the high tech gear. To celebrate, we are holding our FX Trading Workshop through the end of June free of charge. Normally 8,000 yen, you can now attend the 2 hour FX Workshop and receive a whole month of support to make sure that you understand and can apply the strategy, at no cost to you. We have completed a couple of workshops already, and the turnout has been amazing. Free Live FX Trading Workshop schedule: Saturday June 4th 4-6pm Saturday June 25th 4-6pm If you can’t make it to one of the scheduled workshops above we can possibly schedule another date so please let us know. For more information on the FX Trading Workshop, click here. Open/Club Meeting: June 18th We will start holding our regular monthly Open and Club Meetings from this month as well. For those of you new to Tokyo Traders Club, you are welcome to join us at our Open Meeting to get a better idea of who we are and how we can help you achieve your goals from trading. Also, if you attend the Open Meeting you can stay for the Club Meeting for free! The monthly Club Meeting is a chance for the members to get together and discuss various trading topics from strategy to psychology and share ideas. Trading is very much an online endeavor…


Guest Post: Trading Psychology; The More We Care, The Worse We Fare

By Steve | Oct 24 2015

This is a guest post from Rich Friesen previously an accomplished trader and market maker on the Pacific Exchange, and now well-respected trading psychologist and coach based out of San Francisco. You can find Rich and a lot more info at and below the article you'll find a special coupon for those that may want to delve into these topics in more detail in order to improve themselves and their trading.   Trading Psychology: The More We Care, The Worse We Fare I remember going to a client's office where he was an active day trader. At one point, the trader was short a large number of futures contracts and as it approached his stop he started tapping the screen as if to loosen the friction that would allow gravity to take the price of the futures contract lower. He really cared if that trade made or lost money. Of all the trading psychology issues I work with, this is one of the biggest problems many traders face. In over 1000 surveys and assessments of both professional and independent traders, only about 25% are able to frame trading losses in a way that allow them to maximize thus the statistical edge of their trading strategies. The rest of the traders, to varying degrees, care about the outcome of each and every trade. This is often because the outcome of the current trade reflects on their dreams, their hopes, and their worthiness as an individual.   It is my contention, that how much we care about each and every trade outcome, is a great barometer for traders to learn about themselves. How much do you care about the outcome of every trade?…


DX US Dollar Update

By Steve | Oct 24 2015

With the solid move off the mid October low under 94 to now breaching 97 with the help of Draghi and the Chinese central bankers, the question is now whether we have an important bottom in place or we are just working on an interim top. The area we find ourselves in should sort that story out one way or the other reasonably soon...with 98-98.50 as key resistance for the downside view, or an important area to break up through for the bullish picture. An equality measure between 97.50-97.80 (depending on where we measure the top of A at) is the last potential for the downside picture to remain valid. Price has already touched through the major channel top, which could be a warning of what's in store. But it's quite a tentative world at present with all of these central bankers at work and with the debt issue still hanging over the US' head, there are many crosscurrents that can appear, which suggests an open mind as a starting point is rather important. So, with the week ending with price over 97, there are some big choices dead ahead for this instrument with the Yellow count still alive with the above figures holding...otherwise it's orange (on the daily chart) and targeting into the 103-108 region.


YM Dow Update

By Steve | Oct 15 2015

The YM took a little hit in the US session from inside the target zone 17,000-17,500. Admittedly, it's a bit of a wide zone, but wave B's are notorious monsters to pinpoint their ends with. In any case whether we get another swing higher to complete things a bit closer to the top of the range or not, the 17,700-800 remains important resistance for the 14,800-14,400 targets to remain in play. As the monthly chart shows, whilst there may be some playing around for a couple of thousand points, the larger story has plenty of upside should the 13,000-13,500 area hold as support.
