Create a Forex Trading System

When creating your own trading system, there are a few things to keep in mind. You are going to need to be able to spot trends, while making sure not to get faked out. The real trick is, once you have created a system that works for you, stick to it. Being disciplined will help in starting a successful trading system.

Before trading live, you have to figure out what works for you. It is good to know in what time frame you’re going to be working in, and how much you are willing to risk once you begin trading. It is generally suggested to use the moving average crossover system (in which times to buy and sell are determined by when two averages cross over or under each other) to identify trends, and the Relative Strength Index to confirm or deny trends.

The last piece of information needed, is deciding how aggressive you are going to be with entering and exiting a trade. The more aggressive trader wouldn’t wait until the candle closed, but enter as soon as their indicators match up. Most would wait until the candle has closed, to have more stability when entering a trade.
