Successful Forex Trading Is All About Probabilities

When you first start to trade forex, it's very easy to test out a technical indicator or two and then apply it to your first few trades, or even just trade based on your gut feelings, but if you are serious about becoming a long-term successful trader then you need a well-thought out strategy.

A good forex trading strategy is one where the probabilities are in your favour for every single trade you make.

For example, I don't believe in entering a position where one single technical indicator provides a good signal, but instead rely on several indicators to all indicate either a buy signal or a sell signal in order to enter a trade with confidence.

I also use different time frames as well to show the overall trend. For example, if I'm analyzing a 5-minute chart and all my indicators indicate a buy signal, then I will check the 30-minute chart as well to make sure that we're not in an overbought position or that we are in a strong downwards trend.

So always try and create a trading system that will provide you with high probability trading positions as this is the key to making long-term profits from forex trading.
