Majority of the forex traders use technical analysis approach to trade, most of these technical traders want the currency pair to follow the trend, may be up or down. When I say about forex trading there are many currency pairs available for trading. Suppose the trader want the trending currency pair, here is how to find which currencies are trending. For doing so there is a simple trick, it is if major currency pairs like EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF and NZDUSD are trending then stick to it, if major pairs are range bound then it is always that cross currency pairs are trending strongly, like GBPJPY, EURJPY, EURCHF, EURGBP, AUDJPY, EURAUD, etc. This way you will always find the currency pairs that are trending, no matter what conditions the markets are in.
For example: If GBPUSD is showing range bound moves, then I will check GBPJPY, which must be trending and it will be more feasible to take trade on it. Just see the charts of GBPUSD and GBPJPY below, you will get the difference.
Drawing trend lines is one of the few easy techniques that really WORK. Prices respect a trend line, or break through it resulting in a massive move. Drawing good trend lines is the MOST REWARDING skill.
The problem is, as you may have already experienced, too many false breakouts. You see trend lines everywhere, however not all trend lines should be considered. You have to distinguish between STRONG and WEAK trend lines.
One good guideline is that a strong trend line should have AT LEAST THREE touching points. Trend lines with more than four touching points are MONSTER trend lines and you should be always prepared for the massive breakout!
