Trailing Stop Forex Strategy
Welcome to this video on trailing stop forex positions where we’re going to analyze once you get into a trade, where you should place your trailing stop – your initial stop, protective stop whatever you want to call it. With my trading method, when the 50 MA start angling up, I consider that we are in a potential uptrend. That’s an uptrend indication.
By the way, all these are indicators and indicators do what they promise. I mean the answer’s in the question, what do they do? They indicate! No indicator is a money maker. Therefore, you cannot rely on any one indicator to make you money. It’s a piece of evidence is what it really is. Right now, what I would do in a situation like this is to potentially look for a first wave low. I count waves differently than they do an Elliot wave.
If you want my cycle indicator and how I measure these waves and these cycles and so forth, happy to give that to you for free and send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also doing webinars once or twice a week where I give away that indicator absolutely free. It works on any trading platform and you get a tutorial with it on how to trade it and you can take it and integrate it to whatever training method you’re using, if you’d like. No charge for that.
Trailing Stop Forex
Cycles are like the respiration of the market, the inhale, the exhale. Markets sometimes ll go straight up or straight down, especially based on news and even gossip or rumors sometimes. Price structure has everything to do with where we place our stops, our initial protective stop as well as our trailing stops. Number one is your protective stop goes where you’re wrong.
Forex Trailing Stop Strategy
That’s the general rule. You might want to write this down – stops go where you’re wrong. What do I mean by that? There’s always a reason that we take a trade. So, whatever the reason is in your methodology, then if that reason for entering the trade no longer exists, then your trade should no longer exist. Your protective stop or your trending stop for that matter should always be placed at a position on the chart where the structure for the reason of you entering the trade has been broken, has been violated. So that to me is the basic rule where you place your stops.
You’ve heard the saying the trend is your friend until the end, right? And some people think the lesson from that is just a trade with the trend. Again, that’s a half-truth. In fact, The second half of the sentence is the most important half of the sentence – until the end.
What that’s really instructing us to do is trade early in a new trend. The longer the trend goes, the less likely it is to continue. Therefore, I’m always looking for the first cycle low after the confirmation of an uptrend. As long as that trend is going up, we’re good.
How to Use Trailing Stops
No one can predict what the market’s going to do all the time. That’s impossible. No one’s ever done it. Nobody ever will do it. I don’t care what you hear. And that’s why we don’t predict the market. I hate when people say, how do we predict what the market’s going to do? No one has a crystal ball. This is all about mathematical probabilities. And that’s it, which is exactly why we have to keep our stops in our protective stops and our trailing stops. I would just keep my stop a below these wave lows. And then once I get up here to weigh five, what I would do is look for a momentum shift.
Trailing Stop Explained
I don’t really want it to break the low here, right? This is our structure that I was talking about and so that’s my protective stop. I don’t want the market to break the structure for the reason that I got into the trade, it gets close but it doesn’t provide support and we’re golden. So this will be my initial protective stop right here. The reason I got into the trade is, remember the place your stops go, as long as the reason continues to exist for getting into the trade, keep your trade on, we want to keep our losses small. But we want to let our winners run as well. You don’t want to get out too soon and we allow for the market to go from low volatility, which is what’s happening here.
