The Stages of Forex Market Trends

The forex market is played with keen eyes on algorithms, statistics and ultimately overarching trends; while statistics and algorithms are impersonal and boring, a trend is something much easier to spot for a trained eye. As such we’re going to look at what makes up a forex trading market trend, how they work, where they come from and how to know the different stages that occur. If one were to master this knowledge it would be easy enough to join in a trend when it’s high and duck out as soon as the going gets hairy. Before we get started it’s important to realise exactly what we mean by a forex currency market trend. Simply, a trend is a tendency for value to change negatively or positively over a specific period of time; they can last a long time or a briefly and can fluctuate, depreciate or ‘flatline’. This is important because success in the forex market trade relies on one being able to spot trends and take advantage of the profitable entry point or ideal exit points.

An Example of Trends

Typically a strong economic country will have a strong currency, bar a few exceptions, and economic strength is attractive to potential investors which in turn create demand for the currency. Investors demand security in gold investment as opposed to fiat currencies sometimes, so demand in gold-mining countries, such as Australia and South Africa, increase due to their industries. Knowing when investors are about to demand gold is an example of a good time to be in on the forex market schedule for a rush trend; the trend being a sharp increase in demand for Australian dollars or South African rands; hitting that demand before it happens put you in a good position. That is an example of how to play a trend; followed of course by you selling before demand drops and the trend fades.

Trends Can Dictate Success

There is a current foreign exchange or forex market dispute as to whether one should follow ranges or trends, but while trends are nothing fancy they have shown far more potential for success with skilled forex traders. I won’t get into the pros and cons of either right now, but I will mention that when you can read the forex market online and in the flesh so to speak, when you can spot a trend emerging from a mile away and when you’re so experienced that the forex market opens up to you like a book; that’s when you’ll be in a position to get the most out of your trading experience all thanks to trends.
