Hey guys.

 

I wanted to bring up something I have noticed over the past month or so.

 

IQ Option has OTC forex on weekends. I wanted to know if anybody else has noticed how much easier it is to trade than normal forex markets in the week?

 

The market isnt all over the place and it trends steadily.

 

Just wanted to see if any of you have also noticed this and if you have any explanation as to why it is like this or any advise on how you capitalize on it.

 

Thank You all.

I have tried them consistently. Only binary options were successful for me. And I had a larger return percent (85) because of the volume of trades generated. Not ITM but the return that the broker gives us.

Hi! I have also been wondering about OTC. I found this video on youtube about someone trading over OTC, it is not a consistent strategy, but it seems to work for him. I tried it last weekend on demo, but it really didn't work for me.

Yes , that was about two weeks a go, I didnt see there anymore OTC trading...only Bitcoin index and payout is 40% every weekends.

Seems that they have some changes for that issues.

My reading suggests to me that the erratic nature of the forex market (FX) in recent years is largely due to computers doing the trading for financial institutions and the like - even government central banks trade in FX. Hence, it seems logical to me that the OTC market in question would be more "well-behaved" since it is in a more closed system. It is also less exposed to both the trading volume of the regular FX market and the large number of trading robots from all over the world.

iq options tends to do that whenever the regular market is closed or if there's not enough liquidity. In regard to the bitcoin index, some forex brokers do offer it.

OTC still works for me. But I rarely trade it. I'm suspicious of it because I can't see what's going on in the real world. It could be that IQOption has some kind of algorithm to fluctuate the price getting your entry OTM whenever possible. Maybe I'm too paranoid in this regard but I noticed that so often it happened on my end.

 

And the price movements are just not realistic. Most often it trends forever and the price moves so smooth it's almost as if the candles were Heiken Ashii smoothed but it's not. Now it would be easy if you could just trade the trend but when I tried it then it seems to always turn.

 

But if some can make good money on weekends consistently that's great.

 

I personally prefer the more erratic real FX prices, because many times you can catch a hard dump or spike to counter trade it or use certain patterns that occur often.

I've only ever seen Bitcoin profit percentage at 40%. Not really worth the effort in my opinion.

Belgium has banned it and I think France is/was following suit too.
