One of the conditions to profitably trade in the Forex market is to have a well-developed, profitable trading strategy. Therefore, this issue is given special attention when training in the Forex market.
Why you need a trading strategy
Choice of strategy
Every newcomer who comes to the Forex market must decide on the trading method with which he will work. Trading strategies "Forex" have a wide variety. Therefore, the choice of a suitable method should be approached with great responsibility. Depending on the chosen strategy, the profit or loss of the future trader will be formed. Trading strategies "Forex" are selected individually. The choice of method depends on many factors, for example, such as:
2. Dispersal of the deposit. It takes into account the system of work with which the trader will work. This refers to an aggressive or classical method.
3. The nature of the trader. The psychological factor also affects the choice of strategy. If the trader is inexperienced and timid, he will trade neatly, using the classics. Conversely, an ambitious, pushy, ready for different experiments, such a beginner, will use the aggressive method of trade. Simply for him it will be closer by his psychological characteristics.
Variety of trading systems
Any trading strategy is selected individually. Most novice traders use a ready-made technique. For many years of the existence of "Forex", and the market itself as a whole, a lot of various strategies have been developed. Therefore, the beginner at the initial stage is very difficult to determine the right method. All strategies have certain parameters and are used depending on the requirements that are presented to them by the trader, as well as the situation on the market. There are the following categories of TC:
- Indicator, using in their characteristics various technical indicators.
And also the strategies are selected depending on the state in which the market is located. If it is calm or is in the consolidation zone, then methods for the flat are used. And if there is a good trend movement in the market, then the appropriate trading strategy is chosen. During the release of important economic news, a certain method is also selected. Developed even special trading strategies to work on the news.
Since in the future the trader will work on this method, it is necessary to select and develop a strategy that would give good positive results. It is necessary to take into account all the factors, otherwise it will not bring the expected results.
Testing the vehicle: analysis
Let's say a beginner trader has chosen the method of work he needs. In the chosen system, all parameters were taken into account and targets were set. Now we need to analyze the efficiency of the new method. Such analysis of trading strategies is carried out by means of testing. It can be carried out in two ways: on history and use for such purposes a special TC tester.
And what about the analysis of the performance of the vehicle in the strategy tester? It is carried out similarly. Also it is necessary to set the time interval, "drive" the TS in the tester and analyze the results.
And the last, final stage: you need to conduct an analysis of the TS on the training account in real time. To do this, you can use a demo account, which is provided free of charge by the broker for its customers. And after the trader has obtained certain results, depending on whether they are satisfied with it or not, you can start trading on a real account or finalize your system.
The best trading strategies for "Forex"
Usually, before starting to work in the financial market, each trader chooses for himself several vehicles with different parameters. It can be systems either ready-made or independently developed. Before applying the TS in its real account, the trader tests them and analyzes them. Then he conducts a selection, choosing the best strategies. Good systems have a large percentage of profitable indicators, a minimal drawdown or a lack thereof. And since the currency market is constantly changing and does not stand in one place, that is, it is in continuous motion, then the methods are chosen different, depending on its behavior.
The easiest method of trading
Of course, it is best that the trader's trading strategy does not have at the heart of the contradictions. It happens that the TC has several technical indicators in its composition. And since they have different parameters and properties, their values can differ from each other. The contradiction of indicators turns out. An experienced trader who has been trading for a long time in the foreign exchange market will easily understand how to act in this situation, but a beginner may get confused. Therefore, the trading strategy for a beginner should be simple enough, understandable and contain a minimum of indicators. The excess of technical tools on the chart not only leads to a contradiction between them, but because of them the review of candles is limited, and they are really the main ones, since they show the price change.
TS based on moving averages
AO is a very simple "forex" indicator. A large number of different strategies have been created on the basis of JSCs. An example of a trading strategy.
It will take only 2 moving averages with indicators that can be selected individually, in this case AO8 and AO13 are used. Entrance to the market: at the intersection of the sliding, if they are directed upwards, you need to open a purchase order, and if the AOs have a down-sell direction. Exit, closing of the order: at their intersection in the opposite direction. Interestingly, this is a very simple TS, quite "old", but nevertheless effective.
