institutional market moves
To successfully apply the information given in the following lessons you need to correctly understand the motives behind why the institutions move the market the way they do. Their end goal is to make money; they don't care who made or lost money along the way as long as they finish off the day with more than they started with. Price is a reflection of the number of transactions and the price paid for these transactions, the institutions only tool they use to move the market is manipulating the price.
The forex market trades roughly $5,700,000,000,000.00 a day. The bulk of which is done by the transactions made by large institutions, not retail traders(you and I). This means they move the market where they want and when they want to. Their ability to control the market is overwhelming. It costs roughly 10,000 standard lots to move the market one pip, so keep that in mind when you see pairs move 50-200pips in a day. Recognizing when these big moves will happen will enable you to piggyback off of the steps the institutions are creating.
If an institution places a trade to buy $1,000,000,000.00 (10,000 standard lots) of the EU, it will take 10,000 traders selling 1 standard lot (1.0) each, 100,000 traders selling 1 mini lot (0.1) each or 1,000,000.00 traders selling 1 micro lot (0.01) each to balance out the trade made by the institution. Once you realize the market is moved by logical decisions and not based off emotional traders like most people are informed, is the sooner you'll be able to identify where the market will be going and when.
