QuantumTrading & Anna Coulling Launches apps in the Tradable Ecosystem

Anna Coulling, Market strategist, trader and author of  bestseller trading books has designed a range of tools developed by QuantumTrading that now are available inside Tradable. 

The trading tools are created to support a trading methodology created by Anna Coulling called the “Three Dimensional Approach of Trading”. Similar to how a cube has three equally important dimensions, Anna believes trading is done correctly by understanding that fundamental analysis, technical analysis and relational analysis are three equally important aspects of the markets.

“Just like three strands twisted together forming an almost unbreakable bond, combining the 3 dimensions of markets gives you the best chance to make informed trading decisions.”
— Anna Coulling, Trader and Educator.

As a natural extension of the best practices and methodology Anna shares from her books and her webinars, the QuantumTrading tools helps traders detect real flows by analysing price and volume. Two factors, which according to Anna Coulling are the most important measures of market sentiment.

Anna comments, “Only by taking these two indicators into account do you get the true picture of what is happening on your chart. Price and volume confirms or invalidates each other. They will tell you if there is real flow behind the price change and if it is worth risking your money on a trade or whether it is better for you to pass on the trade and wait for a better opportunity.” 

The trading tools designed by Anna Coulling are grouped into four categories; Currency flow monitoring indicators, technical analysis tools and indicators, volume indicator & volatility tool.

Lex van Dam democratizes trading with a range of new trading tools on Tradable

Lex van Dam, Hedge Fund manager, renowned trader and creator of BBC’s famous “Million Dollar Trader” show has launched a series of trading tools together with Tradable.

Lex van Dam, Hedge Fund Trader & creator of BBC's "Million Dollar Trader"

Lex has over the past decades provided education on trading and investing to an ever-growing global following of novice and experienced traders. The 5-Step-Trading® methodology developed by Lex van Dam and used in the Trading Academy is the basis for the 15 trading tools being released. 

Lex’ range of trading tools are looking to aid the pressing challenge of information overload most traders face. For Traders not knowing what to react on and when, the trading tools helps traders to focus and react on information relevant in the moment. 

I’m on a quest to make trading more accessible, offering the highest quality information and tools without the trader having to invest unnecessarily in expensive resources. It’s often difficult for people to know what to do and what they need to access when they start trading. There’s so much information it can be very overwhelming. In my experience, even people who trade using established institutional platforms tend to use less than 5% of the resources available to them.
— Lex van Dam

The tools developed by Lex have been composed into a set of new trading screen layouts inside Tradable. The layouts are constructed in a way aiming at supporting traders to generate new ideas and help them control their emotions, manage their risk and preserve their capital. 

The 15 trading tools range from technical based tools, trade execution tools, risk management tools to fundamentally themed tools.

The Fundamental Matrix trading tool provides a convenient overview of the economic data of the major currencies that allows traders to easily assess the recent strength of an economy by looking at economic indicators such as Unemployment, GDP, CPI and more.

The Radar trading tool gives a broad technical overview of the assets your are focused on. Traders can easily see daily percentage changes and instantly get a visual overview of short term trends. The Radar shows current values on indicators such as RSI, Stochastic, and ADX and gives you a quick overview without having to look through charts.

Other trading tools in the Lex van Dam suite includes the Economic Calendar, Momentum Scoring, Price Alerts, Trade Board, Time Box, Intraday Result, Intraday Breakdown, Risk Sizer, Net Exposures, Rolling, Scenario Analysis Matrix, Trade Journal & Positions.

If you have the determination to succeed we have the right tools for you! Whatever your prior experience Tradable brings you all the necessary tools in one platform to help you achieve your goal. ‘Ways into trading’ is a series of articles that will introduce you to a number of apps that you as an aspiring trader will find helpful to start your trading career.

You may have heard stories of people getting rich fairly quick from trading or saw an advert promising lucrative returns. You may have gotten excited, went ahead and opened your first demo or small live account to start testing the waters right away. It is not a bad start and probably that is the road most people take. However sooner or later but surely after the first streak of losses, the realisation that you may have skipped the education part suddenly hits you. Great traders say losing trades are the best teachers. Most newcomers only realize they need to learn and seek the help of professionals once they hit the brick wall. But you don't have to get yourself in the trouble of finding your much needed help somewhere on the internet, it is already there in the Tradable AppStore. Educators, online trading schools developed their own tools for Tradable so you can access top notch resources, lessons and tips easily from your platform.

GCMS Trading Tactics

This app was developed by Global Capital Market Solutions and reflects their trading philosophy. Trading Tactics is a powerpoint-like presentation that deals with three major topics that could be of interest to any trader, beginner or intermediate:

  1. Find out the causes of losses. There’s a difference between losses and losing trades. Every trader experiences losing trades; that is the consequence of probability and normal distribution and you can never know why some trades turn out to be winners while others don’t. The point is that you can be profitable with taking losing trades every once in a while, however losses will destroy you. Losses have nothing to do with probability they are recurring a symptoms of deeply ingrained poor trading habits.

  2. Learn an effective news trading strategy. For easier execution we recommend the use of Straddle Trader.

  3. Get your psychology fixed. Almost all unprofitable traders fall into one of the following two categories: they either over trade (take the trades they shouldn’t) or under trade (don’t take the trades they should). Get tips on how to overcome the issue that stands in the way of your trading success.

GCMS Practical Technical Analysis

Another educational but more technical oriented app from GCMS. Similarly to Trading Tactics the technical concepts are laid out as a handy in-platform presentation with the ability to jump to your selected content or slide through the entire material. Download the app, and start learning:

  1. Get familiar with candlesticks, the building blocks of charts

  2. Detect trends with (multiple) moving averages

  3. Find turning points in the market with RSI

  4. Monitor volatility and track changing market conditions with Bollinger Bands
