Forex Trading Strategies

By: Jim Buhs

For people that are struggling and trying to lean how to trade forex, they go on the lookout for the best forex strategies. However, a key problem with this is that most of the strategies that are available in the marketplace are horrendous.

Most of them rely on a system of multiple indicators to tell the trader when to buy or sell.

You have to remember that these are lagging indicators. They are great tools if you want to see what has already happened to the price. But to be able to forecast the future price of a currency, these indicators aren't going to do much for you.

If you sit down and think about it, if all these indicators make it so easy to trade forex, why is it that so many people fail horribly. Actually 95% of forex traders end up losting money.

I'm sure most of you are probably thinking why is that the case? If these indicators make things so mechanical, then how come it's so hard.

The problem is that these indicators don't tell you anything about the market. It's hard to be successful if you don't understand what you are looking at. If you are just a trained robot following a bunch of random lines, you are going to struggle making money in the forex market.

If you want a full comprehension for the reasons that market prices move the way they do, it all comes down to price action. To do this, you've got to empty your charts of all the indicators that you have.

This is the only way you are going to understand the subtleties of the forex market. Once this happens, you'll see that currency prices often repeat themselves. There are tons of price patterns which replicate on a constant basis. You just have to be able to understand what it is you're looking at.

Take some time to follow a naked chart one day. Don't be overly stressed if you don't see any patterns develop. In time, you'll see them happening all the time.
