Forex Trading Strategy, Stops, and Risk

Designing and implementing a trading strategy is essential for every Forex trader. Forex strategies may involve several trading styles (scalping, news-trading, swing, etc.) and multiple timeframes {intraday, daily, weekly, or monthly}.

 

Key Principles for a Successful Forex Strategy

1. A Forex strategy must be compatible with your trading profile and your appetite for risk

2. Forex strategies will prove more efficient when they focus on a couple of Forex assets than when they cover the whole currency market

3. A successful Forex strategy must keep things simple and clear. Overcomplicated strategies tend to fail in the long run as they are very difficult implemented

4. Testing a trading strategy using historical data is a logical step, but keep in mind, the currency market is evolving so past data success is not a promise for future success

Basic Money Management

5. Incorporate always some basic Money Management, and that means (i) a stop-loss (simple or trailing stop) and an (ii) take-profit order

6. Adjust your stop-loss and take-profit according to the major support and resistance levels, and your timeframe

7. Leverage your funds wisely and keep in mind that high-leverage can be catastrophic, especially for beginners. Don't forget that trading leverage increase your risk but also your trading cost

8. Evaluate the results of your trading strategy in the long run and don’t get too enthusiastic/disappointed based on short-term results
