Currency Strength Strategy For 8 Currencies

In this article we will present a currency strength strategy for forex trade entries and another strategy for market analysis, both strategies work. These two strategies will improve any trader’s understanding of the current market condition, along with more much more profitable trade entries, trade after trade.

Currency Strength Strategy For Current Market Momentum

Measuring the current market momentum in real time is one currency strength strategy. In the example below the USD (US Dollar) was weak on all pairs. This drove significant movement for traders on this day (2-3-2016) on all seven of the USD pairs we follow at Forexearlywarning.com. There was also some minor NZD (New Zealand Dollar) and CAD (Canadian Dollar) strength in the market. So the NZD/USD moved strong to the upside, makes perfect sense. Since the NZD/USD was also in an uptrend at this time, it should continue higher on the D1 time frame to the 0.6800 resistance area.

Also, the USD/CAD dropped and is currently at one support level, so in this case a trader may choose to scale out lots and reduce position size. The EUR/USD also moved up strong on this day and broke out of it’s trading range, now this pair has additional upside on the D1 time frame as well. So you can also plan more trade entries going forward on the pairs that are trending. A phenomenal and profitable day of trading for any forex trader on only one group of pairs, with strong movements. The real time currency strength indicator you see below is The Forex Heatmap®, which provides live buy and sell signals for 28 pairs, including the US Dollar pairs and seven other currencies

Another Example of Intraday Currency Strength

This is another example  of how to use intra day currency strength for strong trade entries. This example is from 7-5-2016. On this day the British Pound (GBP) was weak on all pairs, and the Japanese Yen (JPY) was strong on all pairs. This caused a strong sell off on the GBP/JPY. This pair sold off over 300 pips in one trading session, also, the major trend on this pair is down on the larger time frames, so more pips are possible despite this strong trade entry.

You can set up some moving averages for all of the JPY pairs, USD pairs, NZD pairs, etc. to start. Then drill down the charts daily using multiple time frame analysis. For example if all of the JPY pairs are in up trends, then you know the JPY is weak. Then, if you can find a strong currency to go with it, you are in business to make pips. On the Forexearlywarning website, we show you how to set up the trend indicators, and how to analyze the market by individual currency.
