THE SIMPLEST FOREX TRADING SYSTEM YOU CAN APPLY IMMEDIATELY


Hi all,
If you are looking for a simple forex trading system but has a proven good result, so here it is.Read this article, test it in your demo account, and then see the result.I don't know who you are and how good is your forex knowledge and experience.I pretty confident, you too will get a good result just applying this single technique.


Believe me,this system is very simple, even simplest compared with other system I tested.If you are like me, love a KISS ( keep it simple, stupid !) method,you will love this system very..very..much.And best of all, IT IS FREE OF CHARGE!


Like many trading vehicles, Forex reacts well to news. Given that plenty of news items are scheduled for release at set times, it stands to reason that we should be able to trade those reactions.


Why Trade News?
To make money in the market, we need whatever we are trading to move - either up or down. As markets spend a lot of time going sideways, any warning of impending movement is a good thing - we can be prepared to trade that movement rather than wait around all day in the hope that something might happen.Regular news releases give us perfect warning of impending potential movement, because they are scheduled for set times throughout the day, and many occur regularly - weekly or monthly.Anything that happens with regularity can be used to base a trading method on. 


What News To Trade?
There’s a lot to choose from, but clearly the type of news we want to trade will depend on the currency pair(s) we are watching. If you play the US Dollar crosses then US releases such as the Non-Farm Payrolls or Weekly Jobless figures will be the ones to watch. The more you watch the markets at news release times, the more you will get a feel for which regular releases are 'market-moving'. Subscription services like Briefing.com can help too, in grading news items by their market-moving ability. 


A Simple News Trade

Here is a simple but very effective way to trade the news - it can be tailored to an individual trader's style and risk profile as required.Using a 15 minute chart, wait for the news release, and do nothing for the remainder of the 15 minute bar immediately following.In this example chart, which shows Cable (GBP/USD) at the time of the Weekly Jobless claims figure -? announced on Thursday mornings at 8:30 EST, we see that the 8:30 bar (highlighted) shows some volatility as the market makes its initial reaction.At the start of the next 15 minute bar (8:45 in this example), we simply go Long if the previous bar closed Up (i.e. was a blue candle) or Short if the previous bar closed Down (i.e. was a red candle). The idea is that by the first 15 minutes, the market has had time to digest the information and make up its mind about a direction.The final direction after this 15 minute period tends to carry through in at least the next bar.

In the example here, we would have taken a short at the start of the 8:45 bar, with a tight stop - we are looking for quick follow through so if that doesn't happen we want to be out with minimum loss.Exiting point for a profit is discretionary; one possible method is to use a break of the previous bar, which in this example would have netted us a quick low-risk 25 pips.If we traded other currency pairs at the same time, clearly we could have taken more pips out of the market.

There is one caveat to this trade: if the initial 15 minute bar at the time of the news release moves a long way in one direction very quickly (more than 100 pips, say), 
we would walk away and leave the trade - it's already made the move and further follow through is unlikely.


This is a simple setup, but a remarkably effective one. To get the best from it, a trader should ideally be watching several currency pairs - not all of them will follow through - so watching more gives a better chance of picking up some big winners.
