Day-by-day trading

Everybody knows that Forex does not sleep and does not close. Since the rise in Asia till the sunset in New York bargains are made on Forex. Here is the question: what does Forex intraday trade constitute, if, in fact, trading sessions are held without breaks during the whole week? That is why technically intraday trade is a deal closed when trader does not sleep. Also a deal can be considered as intraday if it is sealed or closed during the trading sessions at the Asian, European or American stock markets.

Informally intraday trading is an indicator of trader’s mastery and experience level. Thus, for example, a newbie trader wants to jump into the market, win and go out. More experienced intraday trader prefers wait till the market comes to him. The newbie player takes intraday trade as alternative of the deep market analysis. Whereas, the experienced trader knows that intraday trade itself is a result of its analysis.

A history of your intraday trade plays an essential role. You see, starting analysis, probing a position where a price is testing a trading pattern, the key support or resistance levels of Fibonacci, trend line or moving average. In the ordinary sense, your next trading day takes its trading models reasoning from the previous days if not weeks.

Finding of your next intraday deals is the result of some decision-making rules application. The actual condition for trade signal receiving is waiting till the right confirmative moment. The next important step consists in deciding what direction the next deal will have. Will it be “buy” or “sell”? Choosing the direction of your next deal you do not try to forecast the market at all. You wait till the market comes to you itself.

The attractive feature of Forex market is concerned with plenty of opportunities for trading during a day.

Let’s try to determine how many good trading chances does intraday currency trader have during one day. Sensitiveness analysis would show that we have 6 major currency pairs (EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCHF, USDJPY, USDCAD, AUDUSD), and at least the 2 most widespread cross pairs (EURGBP и EURJPY). This provides us with 8 pairs for intraday trade.

When we look closely at every graphical interval of a currency pair for getting a trading signal, we greatly increase potential for deals. Intraday trading at Forex market can often provide more trading opportunities than in a medium-term outlook. A market participant doesn’t has to catch any deal, he/she should choose carefully from the number of existing chances. A trader must sift out potential bargains, searching for patterns and choosing the key time interval. A great idea is to focus on the trend lines and channels in any time frames.

The newbie trader can make it a rule to determine trading opportunities using 4-hour time frame. This period is rather long so that the price could develop wider ranges acceptable for trading. During 4-hour time frame currency pairs often show ranges that provide the distance apart the resistance and support levels enough for reaching intraday trading goals.

In that way if we evaluate that we can intend on 2 trading chances for a currency pair during the given 4-hour period, then we can await in common 16 trading opportunities that can justify closing of the deal.

If we closely analyze these opportunities and choose only 1 deal during the 4-hour span of time, then we have more than enough to consider Forex intraday trading as serious chance.
There is nothing unordinary in cluster effect advent, when an operation with one currency pair is accompanied by operations with all other pairs, and suddenly nearly the same time numerous opportunities appear. Otherwise, distribution of the trading chances is not accidental, that is why patience in waiting of the best chance is the determinative skill.

Eventually, bargaining is a logical conclusion of analysis, but it is not spontaneous action. Whereas, there is no one common rule regarding what trading signal is to choose, we can diminish conditions in such a way that a deal will be rational and supported by combination of the technical factors.

Any day trading models, that can make you wish to arrange a deal, appear on Forex market. The experienced traders wait for deals with a high probability, if they are sure the deal will work. The mental state and optimism also can support trader’s confidence.

In the long run, profit and losses statistics will show if you follow up the deal or if you trade for win. Either you seek after grasping a quick gain for paying for your dinner at a restaurant or trade for mortgage payment, intraday payment on Forex has a potential for achieving different trading aims because of its market patterns.

Forex intraday trading offers a wide spectrum of trading opportunities, but it requires a lot from the trader. Currency exchange trader who wants to be successful, must be armed with the arsenal of technical instruments and have a set of the distinct rules.
