Summary

This book sets out a new business paradigm. Author Giles Hutchins presents the challenges to the prevailing ‘business as usual’ model, explains the pressing need for transformational change, and reveals the concepts and mindsets necessary to inspire the businesses of tomorrow. Going beyond current approaches to responsible and green business, Hutchins focuses on the emergence of new ways of operating and creating value in an increasingly volatile and interconnected world. He makes the compelling case that the ‘Firm of the Future’ should seek to mimic behaviours and organisations found in nature, which offer fitting models for businesses capable of flourishing in chaotic and uncertain times. A firm of the future, he argues, builds resilience, optimises, adapts, integrates systems, navigates by values and supports life-building activities. It is a business inspired by nature. Showcasing the pioneers of the new paradigm through examples and case studies, the book presents the tools and techniques required to effect the transformation to a business fit for purpose; fit for the future.

    Scalping is Fun! 
     
    Part 1: Fast Trading with the Heikin Ashi chart
     
    Scalping is the fastest way to make money in the stock market. There are no other methods that can increase the capital of a trader more effectively. To explain how this is so, the Germany based Heikin Ashi Trader tells all in this e-book, the first of a four-part series on scalping.
     
    His method is very easy to understand and can be applied immediately because it is universal and works in all markets. To scalp, the Heikin Ashi Trader uses heikin ashi charts, which are a type of ancient Japanese chart that vividly depict the course of stock market prices. Heikin Ashi charts have the ability to visualize trends more clearly than the usual candlestick charts. In addition, they also show consolidation and reversal patterns earlier than any other chart representation.
     
    This highly effective scalping strategy can be applied in very short time frame, as in the 1-minute chart as well as on higher time frames. You can trade with this universal method in equity indices and in the currency markets, but the most common instruments are futures or forex pairs.

    How to Scalp the Mini DAX Futures
     
    Thanks to the introduction of the Mini-DAX futures (FDXM) private traders with smaller accounts are afforded the opportunity to scalp the German DAX Index to professional terms. Unlike most other trading instruments, Futures are the most transparent and effective way to make money in the financial markets.
     
    Scalpers have infinitely more trading opportunities than position traders or day traders, which constitutes the real strength of this trading style. A scalper may therefore manage his capital much more effectively than all other market participants and thus achieve much greater returns than would otherwise be the case.
     
    The Heikin Ashi Trader shows in this book how to successfully scalp this new future on the DAX. You will learn how to enter the market, how to manage your position and at which point you should back out. In addition, the book contains a wealth of tips and tools to make your trading even more effective and precise.

    Part 1: Introduction to Swing Trading
     
    Swing trading is too fast for investors and too slow for day traders. It takes place on a timeframe in which you will find very few professionals traders.
     
    Swing traders usually use 4-hour charts. This period falls exactly between that of the investor and the day trader. As a swing trader, you are prone to sit on the fence, and that's good, because here you are almost alone.
     
    This eBook describes the swing trading method of the HeikinAshi Trader. It is ideal for individual investors who do not want to sit all day in front of the computer screen.

    Part 2: Two strategies with weekly pivots
     
    This book is Part 2 of the series "Forex Trading", by Heikin Ashi Trader
     
    As is well known, currency markets are determined by the news. However, since news is rare, most currency pairs move sideways 80% of the time. In other words: it is very difficult to trade currencies profitably with trend strategies. The "Forex Trading" series, therefore, deals with strategies that are specifically designed for sideways markets.
     
    The "Pivots" in Forex are an interesting phenomenon because here, more buy or sell orders are waiting to be executed. Anyone who studies charts of currency pairs will find that the market often turns at these so-called "pivots" and starts to move in the opposite direction, at least temporarily.
     
    In this short eBook, Heikin Ashi Trader introduces two simple forex strategies, using the weekly pivots. They are easy to understand and implement (even with small accounts). These two methods are therefore excellent for traders who are looking for forex strategies that can be successfully traded without the need for much analysis.

    Trade Against the Trend!
     
    The brokerage industry usually recommends that new traders trade with the trend. But is trading this way profitable? It is said that if you go with the trend, the likelihood that you will win is higher. Unfortunately, experience shows that most traders cannot build a profitable business this way.
     
    Old and experienced traders used to say: You have to buy when blood flows in the streets. That means that you should act against the trend. Actually, this saying is the expression of common sense itself. The question remains: Why do  traders find it so hard to put this wisdom into practice?
     
    The new book by Heikin Ashi Trader gives ideas and tips on how to recognize such countertrend signals in the stock market, since these are usually the best trading opportunities.
