Over the past few months things have been extremely busy at LS Trader and LS Forex. We have completely redesigned and rebuilt both websites. Additionally we have made two new blogs, one for trader and one for forex, as well as adding Facebook pages for both sites and twitter.
This blog has therefore become fairly redundant as most of my posts and updates now go directly to one of the blogs mentioned above rather than here. I will occasionally post updates here but for the most part regular updates will happen directly on the sites and relevant blog to each site.
Apart from keeping you up to date with what’s going on, I thought it would be useful to give you some links so that you could find exactly where to go depending on what you’re looking for.
The main LS Trader site can be visited here, and the LS Trader blog can be found here. Our social media sites can be found on Facebook here, and Twitter here.
The main LS Forex site can be found here, and the LS Forex blog here. The LS Forex System Facebook page is here.
As for the markets, trading has been going well in spite of an increase in volatility seen over the past few weeks. Trend following continues to perform well in what has for the most part been difficult trading conditions for the past 2-3 years. There have been and continue to be excellent trends in the markets but perhaps not as many as have been seen in a more normal market environment such as prior to 2007. The key to finding trends is to trade a diversified portfolio of markets across various different sectors, and regular readers will know that is exactly how we trade at LS Trader. We continue to trade all the major asset classes, including
- Stock indices
- Bonds and interest rates
- Agricultural commodities
This diversified approach ensures that wherever trends may be in the global markets that we will find them and ride them.
By it’s very nature, the forex markets are less diversified, but we trade a variety of forex markets at LS Forex including all of the major currency pairs and some cross rates. Traditionally, currency markets tend to either be the best trending, or amongst the best trending markets of all but that has not been the case so much recently, something that we think will likely change in the not too distant future, which will present some excellent trading opportunities.
We are currently offering a 30 day free trial of the LS Forex System and you can take advantage of that here.
If you’re looking for more diversification, you can sign up for our flagship system, LS Trader here.
