Forex Trading Strategies – Its All About Boxes

Forex Trading Strategies – Its all about Boxes (Forex Trading Strategies)

The forex trading strategies | strategy above is an interesting way to look at forex charts.

I have highlighted blue boxes in the chart.

As we can see, when price is NOT trending. It moves in boxes. Just like the chart above.

Do not neglect the simplicity of this! I use this often as one of my trading arsenal.

What we can notice from the chart is that price consolidates in the boxes and to eventually break out from the box to form another box.

So price move in boxes when its not trending.

How can we benefit from this Simple yet Powerful knowledge?

By drawing the boxes, we are able to predict where price might head to on the next box after the breakout.

And besides that, we can just trade inside the box just like this:

Forex trading strategies: Look at the first red arrow in the chart above. That indicates the marking of the low of the box.

So we can expect the next time price reaches the area. We can buy at the area. Which is marked by the white arrow on the second time.

The same follows on the 2nd box.

The red arrow pointing down marks the high of the blue box. So the next time price reaches the high. We can sell it off immediately (as marked by the white arrow)

And we are seeing that happening right now in the latest blue box. Price has hit the bottom of the blue box which has now retraced back up. Therefore we can place a buy order right at the bottom of the blue box to profit from this.

So what exactly does a trader do with these magical boxes? There's no specifics here as to how the boxes (a user-defined trading range?) will work to the trader's benefit.

 

"By drawing the boxes, we are able to predict where price might head to on the next box after the breakout." I understand the technical aspect here (draw the box). I'm completely lost as to how it would help the trader manage profitable entry/exit. Especially since you are "lagging" the drawing of the box (drawing the box after the fact). Similar to how people draw trend lines AFTER the trend has occurred :doh:.

So what are you doing - trading the breakout, or fading the breakout?

 

I think you should edit your post, replacing 'can' with 'could have'. This will then better reflect the reality of the after-the-event approach you seem to be describing.

 

Maybe we could understand this better if you used this thread to call a few of your 'box trades' live?

 

Thanks,

Well, its not that price moves in boxes, its that you drew the box around price.

I just took a look at the website of the number 1 AsiaForex mentor. At first i thought that the price was $877usd and thought it was a lot but then i looked at it a bit closer and it actually states "All these for just $8777usd" .........????? Did i miss something here??

So i get to learn how and where to draw a box around already excisting price candles that consolidaded and where price could break out on any side at any time. I must have missed something here.

Hi 4Ever in blue jeans,

I have never seen this statement before.

Are you suggesting we should not draw trend lines?:offtopic:
