    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!

This will effectively filter nay retracement.
    Mate..., how you do that? Can you share that? Or is that your secret? I'm still learning to understand reversal patterns and retracement pattern in the long term trend, indeed sometimes I get stuck by a retracement pattern which turned into a reversal pattern. And vice versa, I often close my positions when in retracement pattern, I just think the market will form a reversal pattern, but it's just a retracement.

    This is not a hard thing to find. Using any trading system of your choice, you can know if the market is still trending, or it retrace a bit or it has fully reversed. But I know this basically through the use of the Fibonacci trading system and some other system too. This is a long explanation though, and I will find time to put you through and put picture where applicable.

    There might be a definitive way of working out a trend. Still, the trader need to be ascertain if the trend is coming to an end or continuing. This was why I created this thread. Many traders thinks they are better run away with retracements time, but they are wrong on most cases. Just like banks and large companies, until a strong reversal is finalized, they still assume the trend continues, and this helps well.

    Trading with the market trend is a very good choice for serious trader, buts it's very important to know that when we have to enter and exit in the market, because many time a market reversal can give you a loss in trend trading system, so just use strict stop loss and try to know about better entry points with it

    And not only a long explanation but we also need to experience it to earn from it. That's why in my part I do just trade aud/usd. Before I trade a lot of pairs. In fact I trade 8 pairs minimum. But now I only focus on one pair and that is aud/usd even though I already have 20 trading accounts and focusing on having 30 trading accounts this year I am still just want to trade with one pair.

    Sir, if you really want to know the trend, then you should relate to its doing on the longer term sense only. The trend you are looking at the lower time means are really on the retracements level at times. If a trader wants to follow a true trend in the market, he should try to use it on at least 1 day chart. And have a way to know retracements from reversals.

    [lang=id]there are some indicators that following the trend and not identify the trend, so traders need to analyze and get the decision for what they have to do or follow, the trend is market direction and we just need to follow it, this is the safest way for trading, and me too, i did scalping but pay attention for it, scalp with follow the trend will make us feel comfortable and not out from the tracks[/lang]

    As we know there is a major trends and minor trends, we use a lower time frame to identify minor trends, and use the higher time frame to identify major trends. The trend we are looking in the lower time frame means are really on the retracements level at times in higher time frames. but also a majorr trend preceded by a minor trend.
