Trend Trading Strategies for Forex

Forex trading is a complex and challenging endeavour, especially for beginners. One approach to navigating the market is trend trading, a strategy that involves analysing price trends and making trades based on the direction of those trends.
Trend trading can be profitable but requires market knowledge and the right tools and tactics. In this series of articles, we will explore forex trending trading strategies, including the types of trends and trend indicators.

What is Trend Trading?

Trend trading is a popular forex trading strategy that involves identifying and following the direction of the market trend.

Trend trading aims to buy an asset when the trend is up. Then sell it when the trend is down, with the assumption that the trend will continue in the same direction. Trend traders identify trends and make trading decisions using technical analysis techniques like moving averages, trend lines, and others.

Before engaging in forex trading, you need to understand market patterns. These patterns can tell you about the market's future and help you make profitable trades.

Trends can be defined in three categories: i) uptrend ii) downtrend iii) sideways.

  • Uptrend: A series of higher highs and higher lows in price over time, indicating a bullish market sentiment where buyers are in control.

Example of uptrend trading:

  • Downtrend: A series of lower lows and lower highs in price over time, indicating a bearish market sentiment where sellers are in control.

  • Sideways Trend: It is also known as a range-bound market; this occurs when the price is moving within a specific range or channel, neither showing a clear uptrend nor a downtrend. You may look for chances to buy at the bottom of the range and sell at the top.

In the next post, we’ll see different trend trading indicators & strategies.

Until then happy trading!
