A forex trading strategy is a technique used by a forex trader to determine whether to buy or sell a currency pair at any given time. Forex trading strategies can be based on technical analysis, chart analysis or fundamental, news-based events. The trader’s currency trading strategy is usually made up of trading signals that trigger buy or sell decisions. Forex trading strategies are available on the internet or may be developed by traders themselves.
Forex trading strategies can be either manual or automated methods for generating trading signals. Manual systems involve a trader sitting in front of a computer screen, looking for trading signals and
interpreting whether to buy or sell. Automated systems involve a trader developing an algorithm that finds trading signals and executes trades on its own. The latter systems take human emotion out of the equation and may improve
Traders should exercise caution when purchasing off-the-shelf forex trading strategies since it is difficult to verify their track record and many successful trading systems are kept secret.
Many forex traders begin developing a trading strategy by starting with something simple. For Cred Capital, they may notice that a specific currency pair tends to rebound from a particular support or resistance level. They may then decide to add other elements that improve the accuracy of these trading signals over time. For instance, they may require that the price rebound from a specific support level by a certain percentage or number of pips.
Selecting the Market: Traders must determine what currency pairs they trade and become experts at reading those currency pairs.
Position Sizing: Traders must determine how large each position is to control for the amount of risk taken in each individual trade.
Entry Points: Traders must develop rules governing when to enter a long or short position in a given currency pair.
Exit Points: Traders must develop rules telling them when to exit a long or short position, as well as when to get out of a losing position.
Trading Tactics: Traders should have set rules for how to buy and sell currency pairs, including selecting the right execution technologies.
Traders should consider developing trading systems in programs like VertexFX that make it easy to automate rule-following. In addition, these applications let traders backtest trading strategies to see how they would have performed in the past.
