    What do you understand by trend trading?

    It is in my notice that many traders are saying trend trading, but they do not know how to trade the trend really. Trend is the main thing traders should aim for in the market, this is because market moves is the nature of trend traditionally. Except there is a reversal, then another trend would form immediately. But traders do not do this because they do have other alternative, and thereby gambles more in trading. I hope this thread will shed more light and understanding to such trader`s knowledge of trading the trend.

    What is trend? Trend simple means "direction". In other words, the trend of the market is the direction the market follows. While trend could be short term, medium term or long term.

    Attachment 11865

    HOW TO TRADE THE TREND: Looking at the above chart picture on EURAUD of 1 hour, Although in the picture market is trending for a long term (Based on the candlestick count), But it did not do this trending all along in a straight/smooth line. The market started from 1.45917 and finished the trend at 1.42245. But along the line, there were retracement, some of them were marked with the white arrow on the chart above.

    This simply means that; the trader have to be strict in trading the trend. You will not mind the side attraction of the retracement, but the long enduring trend of the market; until you are satisfied that a reversal is observed.

    INDICATORS AND SYSTEM FOR THIS: Although, it is tactical to know if a trend will continue or not, but indicators like moving average, MACD, Bollinger bands etc. are effective in knowing this. Also, trading system like trend-line, price action etc. will help the trader to know at intermediate trading whether a trend is continuing or not. And by this, the trader will know if to continue or exit

    NOTE: The best time frame to enjoy the trend trading is on the larger time frame. By this, i mean from 4 hours to 1 month time frame. This is how you will have the full benefits trend trading could give you. This is the way the large firms and banks trade. If you can be patient with trend trading, it really worth it more than any system you may adopt. HAPPY TRADING!

    The trend is a good friend for us and we can always follow the trend and have good high chance of making success. But following the trend blindly is where most traders get it wrong because they forget that in a trending market, a good entry is a perfect way to monetize our chances of catching the right edge of the trend. The moving trend can retrace in a little space of time and when you enter in that wrong time, you could make loose of your capital before the market start following it's trend.

    A trend might not even move straight, there can be retracements and consolidations, so to make good profits from a trend we need good work and confidence. It is not that all trend traders are earning and not that all people going against the trend or people trading breakouts are loosing. Understanding the nature of the market and analyzing the price movement is the basis on which the ability to take good trading decisions come.

    Trend trading is the market situation you can trade on that will give to you higher winning power, it is important to know how to trade the trend. Most traders that has the knowledge of trading the trend loses less. I understand that a trader that is serious with the market according to my point of view will come up with the strategy to trade the best market movements.

    trending movement means that market is moving in strong and one direction. it is totally different situation from trending market and consolidating ones, you really need to know these differences. in my point of view i guess you could not get it whole yet because you said retracements and consolidations in different way despite of their meanings are the same.

    The trend don't move in a straight form, it moves like a wave, which means that there will be pull backs and situation where the market continue moving, depending on the amount of buyers and sellers in the market. Knowing the trend has all to do with the constant learning plus the practice. And if you ain't the trader that use the higher time frame, you might mistake the short term trend for major trends.

    We have to accept the fact that the trend is the boss and we must do what it takes to make proper trading decisions to follow the trend and make more of a better trade. There is high potential of traders who will make it a priority to follow the trend and with good effort to learn on this trend, they would be able to make success in their trading. The trend is a good one and following this trend gives us more opportunity to trade with a better direction.

    Trend is good to make profits, but the market is not always trending, so sometimes we can get good opportunities with breakout or ranging markets too. A strong trend as depicted by the higher time frames should be viewed as a good riding opportunity and stop loss should be used by respecting the uncertainty of the Forex market. We should combine the analysis and any strategy with risk management and then we will be able to make profits with minimized risks.

    I'm setting the general direction of the day on the daily basis, for example, and then moving on to a smaller time-frame, for example, the clock, and then wait for a trading opportunity that conforms to the general trend of the day.
    If the general trend on the daily basis is upward we are looking for procurement opportunities only

    Yes it is true there are opportunities with trend and with breakouts too, the thing is what techniques you use to study the market. Finding good opportunities to trade is not that complex, it depends on your trading style and the analysis you do. I always prefer H1 or above time frames for all my strategies because below that it is very noisy.
