This page is the starting point for all the people interested in trading with PotenzaFX. Using this page you can easily go through the articles and understand how to use PotenzaFX in the most effective way.
We’d like PotenzaFX to be a clear paradigm for every trader in order to drastically improve their trading business. For this reason PotenzaFX is not a black box. On the contrary we want to present it in a way so that everyone can virtually use these concepts without even relying on our indicators at all. If you have good programming skills and you are willing to put time and effort into coding, then you can come up with your own indicators that exploit the concept of currencies’ strength/weakness. Of course we encourage you to be part of our “family” and use the indicators we developed during the last months. In this way you can avoid all the complexities of coding and at the same time be part of a group of like-minded traders who share their views and strategies about this solid and reliable way of approaching the markets.
The post New Home Page, New Approach introduces the concept of Currencies’ Strength and Weakness. This is not a novel concept, but it is very powerful when applied correctly and when the indicators are carefully coded in order to visualize the “Powerlines” during a period of time. We take into account the 8 major currencies (EUR, USD, GBP, JPY, NZD, CAD, AUD, CHF) and are able to display their Powerlines on any given timeframe.
The post Currencies Strength-Weakness (related to PotenzaFX) explains exactly how we calculate the “currency score” that shows strength/weakness of each currency, using 28 different pairs. The post also introduces the concept of currencies’ correlation.
The post Currencies Correlations (related to PotenzaFX) delves into the mathematical concept of correlation and how it can be applied to currencies’ scores. The correlation score is computed using two data series, and it is a number that can go from -100 to +100. The higher the score, the more related the two data series are, meaning that they tend to “move” in the same direction. Applying this calculation to currencies’ scores we are able to divide the major currencies into “groups” or “families”.
The post Friday Trades With Currency Strength/Weakness/Correlations (related to PotenzaFX) shows PotenzaFX in action on a 1 minute chart.

Taking into account the correlation is especially important in this kind of scalp trades.

The post Feel The Power Of Forex With PotenzaFX (related to PotenzaFX) explains how the “PotenzaFX” Indicators Package (“potenza” means “power” in Italian) is structured. PotenzaFX is made up of 3 separate indicators: the PotenzaFX “Powerlines”, the PotenzaFX “Correlations”, and the PotenzaFX “Dynamic Lot Sizing”. These 3 indicators together form an incredibly powerful trading system by itself, but they can also be used side by side with your preferred trading systems and style.

The post How To Choose Best Pairs To Trade Based On Correlation (related to PotenzaFX) explains how the concept of correlation is very helpful in selecting the best pair to trade using PotenzaFX.

Basically the Correlation helps us divide currencies into 3 groups: the first one directly correlated to the stock market (EUR, GBP, AUD, NZD), the second one inversely correlated to the stock market (USD and JPY), and a third directly correlated to commodities (CHF with Gold and CAD with Oil). The changes in correlations’ values reveal that lately GBP is moving from Group 1 to Group 2.
