    How To Trade Trends In Forex – A Complete Guide

    how to trade trendsWe’ve all heard the saying “The trend is your friend”, and while it sounds nice it doesn’t really teach us anything about trading a trending market or how to identify one. In today’s lesson, I am going to give you guys some solid information on trend trading that you can begin using immediately. Today’s lesson is all about trading trending markets with price action, and we are going to talk about how to tell when a market is trending and how to take advantage of these trends.

    I hope you guys pay close attention to today’s article and refer back to it when you have any questions about how to trade or identify a trending market. In fact, if you email me asking about trends…I will probably refer you to this article!

    Let’s get started…

    The first step: Learn to identify a trend with nothing but raw price action

    As you probably already know, there are tons of different indicators that you can put on your charts to ‘help’ you identify a trending market and trade with it. Many traders spend countless hours and dollars on trend-following trading systems or on indicators that just end up confusing them and making the process of trend discovery a lot more difficult than it needs to be.

    I have always been a strong proponent of visual observation of the raw price action of a market, as you probably know. I also believe that simply observing a market’s raw price action, from left to right, is the easiest and most effective way to identify a trend and to spot high-probability entries within it.

    Let me make a quick note before we proceed: A trend is not actually a strategy by itself; it’s just an added point of confluence that increases the probability of a trade. However, just randomly jumping in with a trending market is not an edge or a strategy.

    As a market moves higher or lower, its previous turning points, or swing points as I like to call them, become reference points that we can use to help us determine the trend of a market. The most basic way to identify a trend is to check and see if a market is making a pattern of higher highs and higher lows for an uptrend, or lower highs and lower lows for a downtrend. This is just plain old visual observation of a market’s naturally occurring price action…no mumbo-jumbo trading systems or magic-bullets here. I’d like you guys to take a look at this simple diagram that I drew below; it shows us the basic idea of looking for higher highs (HH) and higher lows (HL) for uptrends and lower highs (LH) and lower lows (LL) for downtrends:

    Note: each colored circle is highlighting what we would consider a ‘swing point’ in the market:

    Thus, general observation of a market’s swing points is the first point of call in determining if a market is trending. If you do not see a pattern of HH HL or LH LL, but instead you see sideways price movement with no obvious general up or down direction to it, then you are probably looking at a range-bound market or one that is simply chopping back and forth.

    Tip: You shouldn’t have to think too hard about whether a market is trending or not. Most traders make trend discovery WAY too difficult. If you take a common sense and patient approach, it’s usually fairly obvious if a market is trending or not just by looking at the raw price action of its chart, from left to right. Make sure you mark the swing points on your chart, as it will draw your attention to them and help you see if there’s a pattern of HH and HL or LH and LL, as discussed above.

    Characteristics of trending markets

    Trending markets tend to make strong moves in the direction of the trend followed by periods of consolidation or a counter-trend retrace before the next leg in the direction of the trend. You will notice this pattern happens in almost any trend you can find. Typically, what happens to many traders is that they will make some money during the periods of strong directional trend movement, but then they continue to trade as the market takes a breather from the trend and consolidates. It’s these periods when traders give up all of the gains they just made when the market was moving aggressively.

    You need to learn to identify the different parts of a trend, this will help you avoid over-trading during the choppy / consolidation periods and will give you a better chance at profiting when the trend makes a strong move.

    Here is an example of what I’m talking about:

    In the diagram above, we can see that a trending market tends to move in spurts, moving in the direction of the trend and then stalling to take a breath before another leg in the direction of the trend. Now, all trends are obviously not exactly the same, but we do typically see the general pattern described above; a forceful move in the direction of the trend followed by a period of consolidation or a retracement in the opposite direction.

    Now, these retraces are when we have the highest potential for a high probability entry within the trend. Often, a market will retrace to approximately the level of its previous swing point before the trend resumes. In an uptrend these swing points are support and in downtrends they are resistance. Look at the very first diagram in this article for a quick refresher on what I’m talking about. Also, let’s look at the chart we just looked at but this time with the support levels marked. These support levels resulted after the market began to retrace lower within the structure of the broader uptrend.

    Note the ‘stepping’ pattern left behind by the swing points in this uptrend. As the market retraces back down to these ‘steps’ or support levels, we would focus our attention and watch for price action signals forming near these levels to rejoin the uptrend:

    Note: These same principles apply in a down trending market but we would be looking for price action setups from resistance rather than support.

    As we discussed previously, a trending market will tend to surge in one direction and then slow down and either consolidate in a sideways manner or retrace lower or higher, depending on what direction the dominant trend is. It is during these contraction or retrace moves that we can focus extra hard through our ‘sniper-scope’ and begin searching for high-probability price action trading strategies forming from previous swing points within the overall trend.

    Trading from value in trends

    My primary mission as a price action trader is to watch for obvious price action setups that form after a market retraces back to a confluent level in the market. This can be a swing point like we discussed above, a moving average level, or some other support or resistance level. Whatever the case, I am looking to trade from ‘value’ in a trending market. By value, I mean from an optimum point in the market that has proved significant before.

    For example, in an uptrend I would consider ‘value’ to be support, since that is where the price of the market is likely to be seen as a good ‘value’ for the bulls, and thus they will tend to buy from that level and push the price higher. Whereas, in a downtrend, ‘value’ is seen at resistance, since the price has rotated higher within the broader downtrend; so it’s a good ‘value’ to sell from resistance in a downtrend. These rotations back to value points can also be called ‘trading from the mean’ or the ‘average’ price, this is why moving averages tend to act as dynamic support or resistance levels.

    One tool we can use to find ‘value’ in a market is a moving average. I don’t use them all the time, but when I do I like to use the 8 and 21 day exponential moving averages. I use them as a general guide and a helper to find confluent points in a market. For example, often the 21 day EMA will align with a swing point in a trending market, this would be considered a confluent level since you have multiple factors lining up together. Then, if we see a price action signal there, we know we are seeing a setup form in a very high-probability area on the chart. See here:

    Note: these moving averages should only be used as a ‘general guide’ and never as an actual signal (as in the old ‘moving average crossover signal’). We only use them as a helper to see dynamic support and resistance levels (to add confluence) and for trend direction. But just to be clear, our main focus is on visual observation of a market’s price action and levels, that is to say without any EMAs.

    Don’t fall into the ‘breakout’ trap – Many amateur traders get stuck in a cycle of trying to trade breakouts all the time…this is not really an effective long-term strategy because the ‘big boys’ all know that amateurs are constantly trying to buy and sell breakouts. Instead, we want to enter closer to key market levels, swing points, EMA levels (confluent levels) in the market…always with confirmation from a price action signal. As a ‘regressive’ price action trader, we are looking to buy or sell from value within the trend…waiting for the inevitable pullback and then pouncing on an obvious price action signal if one forms.

    Forex trends vs. other markets

    One aspect of trend trading that I want to touch on briefly is that trends in Forex tend to differ from those in other markets, especially equities.

    In Forex, bearish and bullish trends are typically equally as violent and potent…whereas in equity markets we tend to see slower moving price action in a bull market, along with lower volatility. Down-trending markets tend to be fast and volatile in equity markets. Forex trends tend to be the same in their volatility and price action whether the trend is up or down. The main reason is because it’s one currency against another in any given currency pair and this results in more balanced price movement.

    Thus, in Forex, your trading strategy and plan will generally be the same for both up and down markets. Here’s an example of the EURAUD daily chart recently that shows just how consistent both down trends and up trends can be in this market…note how the volatility and speed of these trends were about the same:

    In the equity markets, traders typically need to adjust their strategies or systems as a market moves from bull to bear or vice versa. But in Forex, whether you’re trading long or short, bull or bear, the volatility of a currency pair tends to say about the same. That’s not to say that volatility never changes in Forex, it just means that the particular direction of a Forex pair doesn’t have a very big impact on that pair’s volatility or price action, as it does in the equity markets for example.

    Final notes on trading with trends:

    Take advantage of trends when they happen – There is never anything concrete with trends…meaning you never know how long they will last for, so try to take advantage of them when they do occur. Markets typically only trend about 25 to 35% of the time, and the rest of the time they are range-bound or chopping in a sideways fashion. The trick is to learn how to identify a trending market so that you can get the most out of it and get on board as early as possible.

    Counter-trend trading – Overall, trend trading should make up about 70% of the trades you take, and the other 30% might consist of counter-trend trades or trades in range-bound markets. It’s best to learn how to trade with near-term trend before you try trading counter-trend, because trading with the trend is naturally higher-probability than trading against it.

    In conclusion, trend trading is perhaps the ‘easiest’ way to make money in the forex markets. Unfortunately, markets don’t trend all the time, and it’s the time in between trends that traders do the most damage to themselves. This damage is a result of not having the discipline to wait for high-probability setups to appear, and not being able to properly read a market’s price action to determine whether or not it’s trending.

    I trust that today’s lesson has helped you get an idea of how to determine whether a market is trending or not and how to trade a trending market. Remember, there’s no ‘Holy-Grail’ for trend trading, but if you’re in doubt, the best thing to do is to just relax and take some time to visually observe the last few weeks of price data in a market…without indicators. This no-nonsense approach is hard to beat and will work if you know what you’re looking for.

    Finally, I leave you with this little formula:

    The Best Trades = Trend + Confluent level + Price action signal

    I’ve touched on some topics that traders can use for short-term trend analysis today, and I expand on these topics in the members’ article section of my price action traders’ community. Trend following is a large part of my Price Action Forex Trading Course and of my general trading strategy.

      To me your teachings has being remarkable so far. I will be trading real money next month but unfortunately starting with just 400 dollars account. But I firmly believe i`ve being well trained by merely reading your articles, today making it one year I discovered it. Though I already had the knowledge of japanees candle stick signals but your teachings has really made me to know key areas to use them on daily time frame,one trade per week,at confluence level and strong money management which I have decided to risk just 20 dollars per trade per week to make 40 or more out of my 400 dollars account. Nial indeed I can really confirm you are truly a prof in the world of forex and if I really succeed in it,its in fact directly as a result of your lack of greed in disclosing to the world the best way to make it in forex. Ones more thank you so much. Perhaps I will let you know my progress when the time comes.

      One of the best, common-sense articles on Forex I’ve read. After years of listening to complicated explanations, use of endless mathematical formulae, indicators, “systems,” and “expert advisor” robots, I finally had to set them aside and use my own eyes. What I like to do is look at the Forex market in real time and see the raw trend. That’s NOT theory or a mathematical model. It’s the real thing. I do better trading with that, than anything I learned from “experts.” Anyway, Nial is on the right track.

      NOW I know why all my profits are gone before I can even start bragging about making them!…lol…I have learnt so much already since discovering you on the net Nial..:-) Candles are no longer a mystery, pin bars are my best friends..now I will be able to recognise the consolidations and sideways moves…So here is hoping!..:-)…this makes so much sense!…will definitely draw those support/resistance lines
      – practice will make it perfect..:-)..thank you and cheers!…:-)

      Nial,

      Excellent article, direct and concise on how to identify the trend. Regardless of how long I’ve been trading, these “reminders” and your insights are invaluable to be….it’s easy to forget what you already know as a trader, and another’s voice can get us back on track!

      Thank you once again. As you said, many times I have given back my profits in the retracement period.

      Another excellent article…

      Hi Nial. Great article as usual. After a year of hard work and many hours of learning I can say with confidence, that You are probably the best teacher that one can find on the internet, price action is the best way to trade, and indicators create only confusion in market analysis. Take care and best of luck to You.

      Your article is really amazing. but i have 1 doubt Nial, tat suppose the market is in uptrend making HH & HL , during news time suddenly the market falls down and make a LL breaking the trend. At this position whether we have to wait for the confiirmation of the uptrend continuation or we have to decide tat the trend ends up and the downtrend started ?

      The Best Trades = Trend + Confluent level + Price action signal

      not enough!

      Above this formula: Grow up to be patient enough to sit tight and wait for this triple combination. Otherwise it won’t work :).

      Another great lesson Nial. When you put up an example chart could you put what time frames the chart is in or dosen’t it matter? When I change from 1hr to 4hr to daily it seems to throw out of wack the support and resistance levels. Can you use the same techniques described in this lesson to scalp trades on shorter time frames eg. 5min,15 min, 30min.
      Regards

        Hello Bill!
        If you want to loss 7 years like I was, then you can scalp. But if you won’t to consistently make money (years after years) then I recommend that you follow Nial TO the point!!!
        Have nice day

      Another interesting article, and so needed when to make good trading decisions.

      I guess this really is one of the harder things to learn, when is it a good time to trade?
      Is it a trend, or is it choppy?
      We can see how the different setups looks like, IB, Pinbar and Fakey, but where is it ok to use them?

      This is a help to make a choice if it is or not.
      Thanks a lot.

      Cheers

      I learned so much with the above lesson. The 21 EMA as a guide to swing points and taking advantage of trends, when they are present, are great pieces of advice.

      It’s really important that You don’t just give traders enter and exit points, like others do, but teach them how to identify trading opportunities making them think and learn and get into what they are doing, not just blindly following the signal.

      Great job, keep on going!
