Traders who want to catch this kind of move tend to wait for some kind of news event which will give stimulus for a pair to move forward without stopping at least for a few days. This brings us to another strategy. Forex news trading for admirers of volatility.
Economic news releases tend to catch markets by surprise and we usually see huge volatility in the markets when NFP or interest rate decision is announced.
You should not be shocked to see or even pip moves in one minute during these events. It is intelligent to be out of the market if you are not sure what you are doing though. Some, however, love it and take advantages of the events by placing buy stop or sell stop orders minutes before the event happens.
Beginners should avoid this trading method as it takes great skill to manage problematic situations that occur when news comes out. Your stop order might not be filled it happened to me once when I was trading on Refco company platform and you might be looking at the market going against you without being able to change anything.
However, it is good to see what happens during these volatile sessions in the market and just analyze without any financial commitment. You will see the currency market in various aspects of it.

As Forex is a very liquid market and traders can open and close huge positions within minutes or even seconds making hundreds of trades per day has become popular among lots of day traders.
As soon as the trader gets minimum profit a few pips he runs out of the position. It is a dangerous way to trade if one does not know how to control risk. Depending on your trading style: You want to grab your few pips as fast as possible without having to wait too long till you break even due to unfavorable spread 15 pips or more. Problems with this kind of trading systems arise because stops are usually larger than take profits targets and one has to win many more trades just to break even.
You should be careful and not go against theory of probability in terms of making profitable trades by scalping. Too many Forex scams turn around this way to trade the market and one must be aware of that in order not to be deceived. Trading overbought and oversold levels. This is indicator based Forex trading system that a trader may use to make reversal trades when indicators give signals about a security being overbought or oversold. I do not trade that way, but I often put RSI on my charts to see whether it is above 70 level overbought or below 30 oversold to know what I can anticipate in the coming days or even hours.
You should also have in mind that when Forex pairs are in a trend state all technical indicators will be at extreme levels and stay there for quite some time. This strategy is good in range bound markets and is not good at all when you a tendency is in place. If you look at various Forex signals providers you will notice that most of them widely implement these support and resistance levels in making predictions about move of securities they trade.
The name to the system was given by a famous trader Richard Dennis who trained around 10 traders to use his trading methods to make money in financial markets. Turtles would buy a security when it exceeded twenty day high by a one tick and sell when price broke lower than 20 day low. They would do the same with 55 day high and low a more secure way to trade a breakout move. It is a good way to trade, but I would recommend putting some more filters to enter your trades.
Turtles, of course, had some rules for position sizing, placing stops, entries, exits and also tactics. Search internet and you will find out full description of their system. On the one hand, you would not be making too many day trades, on the other you might skip too many swing trading opportunities or enter the market at the end of the move.

You have probably heard about various chart patterns such as: Understanding what these mean and how to trade them can make you a really successful Forex trader and not only Forex. A top stock trader Dan Zanger made millions of dollars trading various chart patterns in combination with volume index.
I personally find head and shoulders pattern to be the most powerful one. This is a reversal pattern that indicates that a major change of trend is coming. This pattern maybe found on various time frames but works best on long term charts, especially monthly. When you see it forming on a monthly chart you can be pretty sure that a major tendency shift is at hand and you can prepare for a few years of a different type of trend a trade accordingly.
You will see this structure on small time frames too all over the place , but they are not very reliable. I fully described this trading system here. I am convinced that you have to use this method together with a few technical indicators such as RSI or MACD and it is recommended to draw trend lines on important support and resistance areas to see if the pattern forms at those levels.
By no means make it an automated Forex trading system based just on one Forex technical indicator. Divergence is a mismatch between price action and technical indicator action. In other words, if price goes up, indicator goes down.
That is often considered to be a sign of a pending reversal. In a prolonged swing indicators such as MACD or RSI and a few others start changing direction while price is still going in the same direction. They indicate that market has overstretched itself and a change of tendency is coming. This strategy works well in a range bound market and can cause you problems when there is a long term trend in place market can stay in overbought or oversold area for a long time.
Hidden divergence contrary to regular one shows not possible change of direction, but possible continuation of direction.
You can see them below on the chart. One could take advantage of that by waiting for a pullback to finish and re-enter long trades. Some do Forex hedging to protect themselves from risk in these kind of situations.
I hope to expand more on this and other trading techniques when I prepare a full Forex tutorial for beginners. There are a lot of techniques that one can apply for making trading decisions with any technical indicator, but I consider RSI to be the best for both long and short term trading systems.
For catching bigger moves it is good to use 14 day RSI. One would wait for daily RSI to go above 50 to go long and below 50 to go short. It works pretty well when markets develop big ranges and swings and not so good when it goes sideways. Check the chart below to see how this type of strategy could have been traded. Bollinger bands trading system.
Bollinger bands is a pretty powerful indicator and can be used in various types of strategies both long and short term. I like using the indicator on weekly charts to identify possible resistance and support levels and trade a reversal. You most probably know that John Bollinger does not consider bands to be working as support and resistance, but they fulfill this function when trends exhaust themselves and ranges start.
When there is a prevailing tendency in a market, price slides through BB and one should not expect the indicator to act as support or resistance, but when price finally finds a top and starts going down, or a bottom and start going up, BB start flattening and form a nice channel to trade support and resistance. So, you need for price to hit the same are for the second time to be able to trade a reversal in a BB channel.
I heard that some guys include this trading pattern in their automatic Forex robots to identify tradable situations. Playing with sma. Even Dow Jones took it pretty seriously in predicting important stock market shifts some managers of Forex managed accounts use it too.
In range bound market I mostly pay attention to 1 hour sma to identify possible breakout levels. What I want to see is a break of two points of resistance and price go up above sma in order to go long and a break of two points of support and price to go below sma in order to go short.
