Biasing Your Breakout Trades

Biasing Your Breakout Trades

Jeremy Wagner, CEWA-M, Head of Education

Summary:Using forex technical analysis, one trading tip Forex Educator Jeremy Wagner brings is to bias or filter your breakout trades. That way, once a bias is established, then wait for your orders of the breakout strategy to trigger you in and out of the trades.

Bias your trades with forex analysis

Jeremy biases the current market toward US Dollar weakness as an example. This could bring the EUR, GBP and AUD to levels higher than most would anticipate. The bias Jeremy uses in this video is a trend towards US Dollar weakness over the coming days. Using the carry trade and the ability to earn interest on open trades, Jeremy focuses on the forex analysis of the AUD/USD which shows it may have completed a triangle pattern.

Set up your trade orders with the Donchian Channel Indicator

Wait for the market to hit your orders. The Donchian Channel Indicator helps frame the market to help you identify strategic price points to enter and exit trades. Jeremy illustrates how to use this simple indicator to frame the trade.
