    How to build our trading strategy in forex?

    A Forex Trading strategy, if properly developed and followed will allow you to survive and make progress in the Forex market. Without a good trading strategy no trader can become successul in this business. There are many trader's who not able to know the exact value of their trading strategy in forex. So how do you develop a strategy that keeps your risk minimal while allowing you to trade the Forex Market?

    1. Follow the market trend: I am talking about this topic in starting because its very important to follow a market trend in forex. No matter which type of trading strategy you are are using you have to always follow the market trend, you can't do trade against the market trend.

    2. Check about your trading style and time frame selection: You should have a very good idea about your trading style first of all you should know that which type of trading suit to you like long term trading or short term trading, and should know about trading styles also like swing trading, scalping, etc. Along with it you should know about your time frame selection also. As a short term trader you can do trade with lower time frames like M1 to H1 time frame and for long term trading goal you can choose H4 and above time frames.

    2. A Good entry point: A good entery point should be there in your strategy because it will help you a lot to get a good risk and reward ratio in your each trade and even you will able to lock your trade during trading. So try to find out a good entry point.

    3. Follow Risk management: Your next step will be to follow a strict risk management in your trading. Set our stop loss and take profit levels properly and don't try to use any kind of high risk in your trading. Proper risk management is very important part of our trading.

    Any type of trading without any preparation will bring a lot of problems to us. So its very important to use proper discipline and a good trading system for ourself in forex. There is no need to do random trading because if you will try to use stop loss randomly then most of time market will hit your stop loss and you will blow your trading account

    I agree that by having a good strategy is the only way to make profits in one's trading, but by following the trend is not the only way to have winning trades, it maybe less riskier as compare to other approach but their are other trading approaches also that can give traders good profits such as scalping,reversal, breakout and range trading, but again all of these approaches requires good strategy and the strict discipline in the implementation of its rule.

    No matter which type of trading system you are using you should have a good capability to handle your trading system. I think tradinfg with a good market trend is very important in forex and its better than scalping, reversal, and breakout etc. I am following technical analysis in trading but never forget to focus on the market trend

    To build the trading strategy of the trader is never an easy thing, but such trader should understand that trading is more of how the trader is working with it. This is why one should place all things systematically. Knowing fully well that doing trading is more of how you understand the working, and try to know your means of management.

    Yeah dear its not very easy at all but you share your view very nicely about it, we have to understand more and more about our trading system. We need a endless knowledge in this business, as you are saying that a systematic way of trading can give us a better result in forex trading and we can enhance our trading skill and experience by it

    Yeah mate that's a very good point by becoming overconfident we not able to focus on trading rules, and try to become over smart in our business but later we feel that its was not good at all. Breaking trading rules could be very dangerous even some time we can got margin call and stop out problem so its very important to focus on good discipline

    There are lots of stages for this, and it is not a matter of building a software, the software that will help on this are already existing, but the way you will use it is the way of building the system you are trading with. You will locate the purpose of your trading, the timing and the quality target, these are what you use as its factors.

    Yeah I am agree with you guys its not very easy to build a trading strategy within few days, it can take a long time to make our trading strategy very effective in forex, many trader's want to make money very fast and don't want to test their trading strategy but this type of trading strategy can't give them a better result in trading.

    Finding a trading strategy is more like doing some kind of research. I do it in these simple steps...

    1. Think what you want from your trading and make a target.

    2. Do some calculations how can you reach your target.

    3. Think how much risk you can take in that trade.

    4. Incorporate risk to your calculation.

    5. Open a demo account and start trading.

    6. Check each and every trade result carefully and continue to do it for few months.

    7. If it has a problem go back to step 1-4.

    8. If working well then use it in real trade.

    That's it.
