There are two main types of trading strategies that are used by traders. They are either intrinsic trading strategies or extrinsic trading strategies. The reason for the distinction between these two types of strategies is the goal of each one. The former will be more aimed at placing trades based on technical indicators that are well established and well understood in order to maximize profit, while the latter will be more on a gut feeling type of thing.
Both of these types of trading strategies are very helpful to have in your trading arsenal in order to help you make sure that you are making money on each trade that you do. In the case of intrinsic trading strategies you are essentially using an indicator to place a trade based on the trend and strength of that particular indicator. You are hoping that this signal will match the underlying value of the currency so that you can get that return for yourself.
However, there are certain factors to keep in mind when it comes to trading indicators. If the underlying base price for the currency is moving up and if the price is still above the top level, then the base price is likely to go up as well. This can be a great place to put a trade because it is such a profitable trading place.
If the base price is not moving at all and if the price has moved very close to the top, then the trader will be off base and the strategy is useless. Therefore, a trader should keep this in mind when they are choosing the best trading indicators to use. It is far better to go with an indicator that is a little more conservative than to be too aggressive when it comes to the use of indicators.
One of the first trading indicators that should be looked into by any trader is the relative strength index. The RSI is one of the most respected indicators of how bullish or bearish a currency will be and it is actually very simple to use in your trader’s notebook.
As you look at the scale on the left side of the chart, the factor for this currency will be there. Then in the middle of the RSI scale you will see the “Forecast.” The forecast is what is basically the current range that the RSI shows a currency being in, this is called a range circle.
Based on the range circle you can see that the currency could go anywhere from two hundred to three hundred points within that range. So this is basically a good place to put a trade based on the fact that it is a solid hold with the potential to move higher, and the RSI is showing signs of bullishness at the moment.
Another trading indicators that should be looked into is the MACD. This is a very important indicator because it is able to show how strong a currency is trading. This is due to the fact that it uses moving averages and a moving average line that circle the best support and resistance levels.
The currency has a signal to the upper band and a signal to the lower band. The lower band is the one that shows where the trend is being forced down and the upper band is showing where the market is at its strongest.
With the trading indicators, you will want to look at the base price as well as the indicator and see how they match up. However, always remember that a good indicator is one that will show the base price as well as the indicator.
Remember, if the base price does not go up and the price goes down, then the indicator is worthless. But if the base price moves up and the indicator shows a breakout pattern, then you may want to consider placing a trade based on the fact that you are able to buy in before the base price goes up and before the base price goes down.
Using these strategies, traders can accurately spot the accurate signals that the indicator is showing. When the indicators are picked up on and the base price shows the break out pattern, a trader should buy in and place a trade.
