What is a Forex Strategy – The Basics

A forex trading strategy is a technique used by forex traders to decide whether they will buy or sell a currency pair at any given time. Forex strategies can be formed based on technical or fundamental analysis and trading news-based events. These
currency-trading strategies usually consist of trading signals that trigger buy or sell decisions. They are available online or may be developed by traders themselves.

 

Forex trading strategies can either be manual or automated techniques for generating trading signals. The former involves a trader on his/her personal computer, seeking trading signals and determining whether to buy or sell. The latter involves a trader developing an algorithm that tracks trading signals and executes trades by itself.

Thoughts on Forex Strategies

Most of the times, traders tend to rely on trading strategies that have not been thoroughly tested. The truth is that many traders spend hours searching all over the internet for the most suitable strategy. Most of the times they end-up not finding one. The best and only solution is to test the strategies for yourself and see what actually works. Most of the new traders start off by learning or copying the trading strategies of other more experienced traders.


Forming a trading strategy is easy. Set the right expectations, learn how to use a few trading tools and indicators, and you are half way there. However, it is unrealistic to believe that your first forex strategy will definitely be successful. Then, multiple questions keep popping-up such as ‘Why should I still form a trading strategy?’ or ‘Why not just copy the trading strategy of a successful trader?’ Traders could share their tips and approaches, but no trader can vouch for your success. Every trader is different. Therefore, a combination of multiple techniques or even creating your own trading strategy would be your way to success.
