New screener, chart pattern and signal. The popular Inside Bar Break-out – June 2018
Inside bars usually appear after a strong market move. They indicate a period of market consolidation. After consolidation the market will often make its next major move. Inside bars, however, can also occur at specific market turning points and are therefore also used as promising reversal signals. The German trader Michael Voigt in "Das große Buch der Markttechnik" also uses Inside bar patterns as the price level where he places his stop loss orders. His Inside Bar stop is available in the NanoTrader. Read more about the Inside Bar Break-out.

Retail investors reject E.U. CFD-Forex intervention – February 2018
In the framework of ESMA's consultation about planned intervention measures to the MiFID1-approved financial product CFD-Forex we asked active retail investors to give their opinion. The short conclusion of the survey is that 91% are against the ESMA intervention measures, 6% are in favour and 3% have no opinion. Retail investors feel they do not need more intervention. They (99%) feel they sufficiently understand leverage and margin, and they (98%) consider themselves sufficiently knowledgeable to invest in CFD-Forex. It may be noted that many E.U. countries have already unilaterally taken measures without waiting for ESMA to come to its conclusions. This leads to retail investors currently being treated less favourably than others in some countries. Survey participants also state that (a) the root problem is not CFD-Forex but unscrupulous non-E.U. brokers or E.U. brokers in non-firmly regulated countries, and (b) that they will transfer their accounts and investments outside the E.U. if ESMA implements the planned intervention measures. Surely all this cannot be the objective of the E.U.?
