One strategy that is a simple forex trading system is following the daily or weekly trend. Review the daily and weekly charts and find a trend that seems well supported and get in. The one caveat about this particular type of trading is that your moves that look small on the chart can span 100's of pips. This means that you need to trade small. Use a conservative allocation when you buy in and allow your trade to develop a bit. Set a reasonable stop and plan out a target. Beginners find this strategy easy because they don't need to watch the market constantly, they can trade when they have time.

You don't have to follow all our signals by the book. Forex signals are trade ideas, so it's best to consider them as such and whenever possible to increase your profits. Stop loss and take profit levels are given in order to frame the range in which the market is expected to move based on a specific trend. If your trading strategy points to further gains, don’t limit your potential... extend your take profit (TP) target or remove it all together to maximize profits.
