Bearish

Being short, or selling is a bearish action for a trader to take. When we say that “we are bearish on the Dax”, it means that we believe the price of the Dax will decline in value. A bear market is when prices are falling – called a downtrend.

Bid

The bid is the amount that the broker is willing to pay in order to buy a financial instrument. In forex, this is the price that the trader, may sell the base currency. The bid (the price at which a trader can sell a currency or an asset) is quoted as lower than the ask and the difference between the two is known as the spread.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin () is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries.

There is no physical bitcoin, only balances kept on a public ledger that everyone has transparent access to. All bitcoin transactions are verified by a massive amount of computing power. Despite it not being legal tender in most parts of the world, bitcoin is very popular and has triggered the launch of hundreds of other cryptocurrencies, collectively referred to as altcoins. Bitcoin is commonly abbreviated as “BTC.”

Breakeven

In investing, the breakeven point (BEP or BE) for a trade is determined by comparing the market price of an asset to the original cost; breakeven is when the two prices are equal. Forex Breakeven example: Assume that we buy 1 lot EUR/USD at the ASK price of 1.1300. The trade moves favorably in profit towards 1.1330 (BID price). We then move the stop-loss to 1.1300 (BID price) so that we are not losing anything if price falls back to the entry level. When also calculating the broker fee for that trade, we could even pull the stop to 1.1301 to equal total expenses.

Breakout

A breakout is any price movement outside a defined price range with a support and resistance area. Breakouts are significant because they indicate a change in sentiment, a change in the supply and demand of a currency. There are different types of breakouts: Continuation breakouts, reversal breakouts and false breakouts.

Breakout Strategy

Breakout trading is an attempt to profit from market fluctuations when the price moves outside a defined price range (resistance or support area).

Bullish

Being long, or buying is a bullish action for a trader to take. When we say “we are bullish on the euro”, it means that we believe the price of the euro will rise. A bull market is when prices are rising – called an uptrend.
