This strategy is about how to trade when prices bounce off the trendline. In order for you to use the trendline trading system, you need to know how to draw a valid or proper trendline.

Currency Pairs: Any Timeframes: Anything above 1 hr is recommended but you can also use smaller timeframes. Indicators: none required. WHY DOES PRICE BREAK A TRENDLINE AND COMES BACK TO IT TO BOUNCE OFF IT? My simple answer: I don’t know.

Daily Pin Bar Forex Trading Strategy

This daily pin bar forex trading strategy is one you should know. Pin Bars (or candlesticks) are one of the most popular candlesticks that many traders watch out for. Why? Well, that is because pin bars represent a really sudden and drastic change in traders sentiment. See what I mean with this chart below: THE MAIN ISSUE WITH TRADING DAILY PIN BARS Daily pin bars are usually very long candlesticks…the range (the difference between the high and low price) is often in the hundreds of pips. For example, if you want to trade a daily pin bar that has a range of 450 pips, you stop loss will be a little bit more than 450 pips. That is the issue with trading daily pin bars: the large stop loss distance. See what I’m talking about below with this chart: Now, if you had a $5000 trading account and if you trade 1 standard contract for the setup on the chart above, you are risking about $4500. It is a very large trading risk to take. If you only trade 0.1 contact, your risk will be $45. If you trade 0.5 contacts, your risk will be $2250, still an unacceptable amount […]
