Open positions data given by brokers

Oanda published the open positions of its clients on its website:

Does anyone know any other brokers who do anything like this or where to find any other data like this?

Chaos in trading sessions

Every website I look at seems to have different times for different trading sessions
For example the Sydney session:
Babypips: 7 am to 4 pm local time
Admiral Markets: 10 pm - 6 am Berlin time (today) ~ 8 am - 4 pm local time
Oanda: 10 pm - 7 am GMT (today) ~ 9 am - 6 pm local time
... and so on for other sessions and other websites.
So, WTF? What are the actual trading sessions?
Another one: according to babypips the London session is from 8 am to 4 pm local time, but according to Oanda it's 8 am to 5 pm local time ...

Discrepancy between MT4 (Oanda Demo account) profit value and Oanada profit calculator

When looking at profit values in MT4 vs Oanda's profit calculator I am getting different results.

Today I was stopped out of a short position in EURNZD.
I entered the trade at 1.70551 for 32000 units (0.32 lot)
the trade was closed at 1.71450
my account currency is CAD, NZDCAD at the time of close was 0.90274 ( I found this by drilling down to a 1 minute chart to get a close a value as possible, is there an easier way to find a pair value at a specific time?)

MT4 says my profit (loss) is -284.72
But I get -259.7 using their calculator: https://www.oanda.com/forex-trading/analysis/profit-calculato
Checking their formula in a spreadsheet gives the same value: (Closing Rate - Opening Rate) * (Closing {quote}/{home currency}) * Units

Does anybody else have this issue, or am I missing something?

Oanda - "Forward Thinking Traders" Webinars

For anyone starting out and looking for a good(and free) training course I'd suggest signing up for the Oanda "Forward Thinking Traders Series" of webinars - actual traders, telling you how to trade. You will need to have opened an Oanda account. I think the series starts again at the beginning of July.
Like most people here I've watched loads of forex tutorials and I'd rank these webinars as among the best - normally people are overloaded with information, these webinars are each an hour long and traders simply show you step by step what you should be doing.

Go against the crowd strategy

Hi guys. Just a simple strategy that works. 95% of retail traders are losing money. Just go against the crowd.
Yesterday took a trade on EURAUD. 80% of retailers were Short, I went Long. Pair went up 150 pips today. It always works. https://www.oanda.com/forex-trading/analysis/open-position-ratios
Please note that at least 75% of retailers should go for or against the pair in order for the trade to be successful.

New to Forex, how did you all decide which pairs to focus on or do you monitor a few and wait for the appropriate signals?

Hi all,
New to both trading and Forex. I'm curious how many of you trade a single pair? If you do, how did you decide upon it? Demo trading with your strategy on multiple pairs for a given time and choose the best one? If you trade multiple, is it just monitoring a few and waiting for the correct signal from one to enter?
I've just created a demo account on Oanda and am building my strategy on MT4. From very preliminary work, I think the best pair for my strategy would be the most volatile. What are some good resources on current volatility? Does anyone use this Oanda one? As a rough estimate, if my strategy is most successful with more volatility, should I use the most volatile pair from the previous day and trade with that for the current day?

USD Bulls

USD weakness is coming to an end and here's why:
  1. DXY accumulating higher lows in daily chart. Broke out of bearish channel. Chart 1
  2. US T-notes, 2Y, 5Y, 10Y, 20Y, 30Y, bounced off a higher low. Chart 2
  3. US Bonds, 2Y, 5Y, 10Y, bounced off a higher low. Chart 3 (Add comparison to the chart, USGG5YR:IND and USGG10YR:IND)
  4. Long positions decreasing on COT for NZD, JPY, GBP, AUD Chart 4
  5. Channel breakouts in USDCAD, GBPUSD, NZDUSD. AUDUSD touching 200MA support.
  6. Fed rate hike possibly december 2016 priced in at +50%, which chance of hike increasing linearly up to that from now. Link Institutional traders are going to start accumulating long positions. Markets will start to price this in.
USD bulls guys.

Oanda Live Account Pricing

Can someone explain the spread only pricing option Oanda has for their live accounts? I'm still new to forex and while I won't be opening a live account for a while I'm still trying to understand the options for when I do.
I can hazard a guess that if the spread is 1.3 when the trade completes (TP or SL) then that's the percentage I pay on it? https://www.oanda.com/forex-trading/account/pricing

How to check volume

So I'm looking for 3 things
  1. Is there a Metatrader 4 indicator that will show me the long-short ratio for my the pair? Here is an example
  2. I'm looking to see how many outstanding open trades on the pair. I know when they roll over trades they have a count of open trades.
  3. I know volume counts transactions. Does it count a transaction when you open a position as well as liquidate it or just when you open it?
If it helps I'm using FXChoice.
Edit: is there a metatrader 4 indicator that lets me see volume and displays a moving average? I want to look for volume highs and lows.

Looking for a website that plots volatility vs % price movement on a daily basis.

Hi folks. I'm looking for a plot like this. https://www.oanda.com/forex-trading/analysis/currency-volatility I would like to have the same plot for major currency pairs on a daily basis(above link is weekly). If that's going to be difficult to find, can someone guide me in the right direction to be able to make it on my own ? Thanks.

Am i understanding Long/Short correctly?

So looking at OANDA'S positions listing at: https://www.oanda.com/forex-trading/analysis/open-position-ratios
It shows USD/CAD with 68% of people Short. However looking at the breakdown when clicking on it, looks like most of the positions are Long on it. Also all market sentiment seems to be talking about Long on the USD.
Am I understanding this correctly? The long/short applies to the first currency listed. (USD in the case). So most ppl seem to be thinking the USD is going to drop in CDN funds / CDN dollar is going to go up?
Similairly an extreme example with Gold... XAG/USD is 86%+ Long on gold. Therefore everyone is feeling that Gold is going higher??
Just seems opposite to what it should be...
Thanks in advance!

Help me to choose a broker -- Oanda, FXCM, forex.com, FXDD

Hi all,
I posted this thread on a Forex forum, I re-post it here hoping to get more advice.
I live in China, and I'm a newbie to Forex trading. I plan to deposit 5,000 USD to experiment Forex trading after I get used to the demo account. After I'm OK with 5K USD, I may invest not less than 10K.
I'm struggling to choose a broker, here are my criteria,
1, Allow hedging. I'm 100% wanting this. Indeed I'm not going to hedge the same amount of money at the same time to earn quick money (which is often used in big news event). What I want to do is, I have a long term position which will be there for several weeks, then I do some short term positions (intraday or several days). That's possible that I have two positions in two directions at the same time.
2, Money safety. During my Googling, I found that some brokers close a trader's account just because he/she earns too much money.
3, 100:1 leverage. 50:1 is not too bad but 100:1 gives me more flexibility.
4, Prefer to NDD (ECN or STP), but DD and MM is acceptable if money safety is guaranteed.
5, Regulates with NFA or FCA.
6, Support depositing using credit card. This is cheapest way for me, at least cheaper than wire transfer.
7, Easy to open an account. I prefer to open an account via internet only so I don't need post a lot of certifications to the broker.
The other points except 1 are tolerant, but I really want point 1 and I think it will be important to me.
Now comes to the brokers I've done some research on. I've checked a little with Oanda, FXCM, forex.com, and FXDD.
Oanda, the most money safety one. 50 leverage. However, it doesn't allow hedging.
All other brokers in my list are not as same money safety as Oanda.
FXCM, the one that's really annoying me is the margin. Why margin for a lot of EURUSD is $750? That's really weird and is not connected to the real price. Can any one explain to me?
Forex.com, as big as FXCM, but in the event that ECB put down the interest to 0.25% at Nov.7 this year, a lot of Chinese traders get network error and lost money. That scared me.
FXDD, not as old as Oanda, and not as big as FXCM and Forex.com, and registered in Malta...
So, what's your advice of a proper broker for me? The one not on my list is OK too.
EDIT: another disadvantage of Oanda is that they have 6 candles a week, but it's a trivial problem since I can use other broker's MT4 for technical analysis.

How to calculate profit or loss in pairs like EUR/AUD when your account is in USD ?

Let's say I go long EUAUD and open a 1 mini lot position . It moves 10 pips up and I close my position . My profit is 10 AUD . But how much is that in USD ? Should I use AUD/USD ? Let's assume AUD/USD was 0.728 when I opened my position and 0.726 when I closed it . Which number should I use ?
