Forex Trading Strategies
Trend trading: The trader attempts to profit by going with the current established trend, buying into an uptrend or selling in a down trend.
Swing trading: The trader attempts to catch the reversal of the last trend and hold the position until the current trend ends and once again reverses.
Pivot trading: Every trading period, whether daily, weekly or monthly, can be used to calculate Pivot levels relevant to the next period; a Pivot level, 2
support and 2 resistance levels. The trader will use these points to enter or exit trades.
Fibonacci trading: A specific movement in the market will give rise to several Fibonacci levels. The calculated retracement levels are used to enter a trade in the direction of the original movement. The calculated extension levels are used to take positions in the opposite direction of the original movement.
Harmonic trading: Here the strategy looks for repeating patterns in the market and to trade accordingly, following the previous patterns.
Breakout trading: This covers a realm of scenarios and indicators. Basic breakout trading will involve taking a position in the direction with which the market exits a given range. Indicators
can be used to determine, for example, if the most recent volatility exceeds the normal level over a given period and would give rise to a position in this direction.
Fade trading: This is the opposite of breakout trading. The position will be taken in the opposite direction to the breakout movement.
Scalping: This strategy attempts to take small profits whilst the market is “trapped” in a trading range.
