Trading in the Direction of the Daily Trend

Trading in the Direction of the Daily Trend

Richard Krivo, Trading Instructor

Student's Comments:All is noted on chart, the daily USD/JPY in a downtrend. There are also some RSI opportunities. I know some would say there is some hindsight here but I would appreciate any comments on my "up and down trading"--in a downtrend, based on these patterns.

Course Instructor's Response:Good observations and a nice job on the candlestick recognition.As far as "up and down" trading in a downtrend goes, we would not recommend it. The higher probability of success will be in the direction of the Daily trend. While there are pips to be made in "counter trend" trading, those pips will come with more risk associated with them and, therefore, would not be the most prudent trades to make. Since you are using the MACD and the RSI indicators on the chart, we could optimize the use of those indicators by only taking signals from them that would indicate bearish momentum (momentum in the direction of the Daily Trend) is in place.Also, bear in mind that a doji represents indecision and a potential change in direction ...it is not an absolute.
