Forex trading signals and learning how to interpret them are the key to the success of any trader that is making money in the forex market. Learning the ins and outs of trading trends takes a lot of time, but you don't have to be an expert at it to be successful.
A more accomplished forex trader will spot the trend just as it begins and will see the slowing down and get out just as it is ready to decline. You don't have to be that good, you can get in once the trend is under way and get out just after it starts to decline and still make money. You just have to be able to recognize which way it is going.
Some of the common forex indicators used in may forex trend systems that successful currency traders will use are the MACD and moving averages. When effectively used as crossover indicators, you will have the ability to recognize significant trends that will of course lead to profits.
When analyzing a short term trend against a long term trend, i.e. an EMA (5) crossing an EMA (20), you will see a positive trend developing that you should take advantage of. The same is true of a MACD crossover.
Another powerful forex indicator designed for trading trends is the TRIX or Triple Exponential Moving Average oscillator. The indicator will keep you in trends that are shorter or equal to the window period. While observing a recent day of trading, we noticed a TRIX (15,9) moving upwards on the 4 hour chart of the GPB/USD pairing. The result of this trend was actually a 100 point rise by the end of the day. If you had the experience to spot this trend, you would have made a killing!
While these are but two of the forex trend systems that you can use that you can use to generate good forex trading signals, there are many more models that are very successful. Examples of these are indicators like the Supertrend and the ADX.
The Supertrend is extremely effective as its' sole design was to pinpoint trends in the currency market. You can only imagine by it's name how successful this has been. If you are using the ADX, it may be a little more difficult to read the trends, but it is just as useful when you know what you are doing and define ranges of profitability. For instance, when there are crosses in the 17 to 23 levels, I know it is a go. Movement in the DI+ and the DI- will let you know which side of the market to get on.
While you will hear people preach the positives of each of these forex trading signals on their own, becoming familiar with all of them is a good idea. Look at it as arming yourself with more weapons to go into battle with. Make sure a trend spotting forex strategy is part of your arsenal. The more forex indicators that you see a positive trend in, the more likely you are in spotting a legitimate trend that you can take advantage of.
