Video: What are the Best Dollar, Euro and Risk Alternative Trend Setups?

Video: What are the Best Dollar, Euro and Risk Alternative Trend Setups?

John Kicklighter,

Talking Points:

• Analysis brings us to the highest probability trading scenarios, but sometimes markets surprise

• It's important to be prepared for a change in market conditions with strong 'alternative scenario' trades

• We look at trends of various conviction - risk, Euro and Dollar - and assess best alternatives

Want to test out all the premium tools and resources FXCM has to offer? We are holding an Open House.

Trends eventually hit points where conviction shifts - whether temporarily or permanently. And, while some trends' phase into maturity and eventual reversal; most occur unexpectedly - and corrections are even more difficult to peg. So instead of trying to pick the turns, it is a better practice to have a strategy and options for alternative scenarios ready for an eventual shift. In today's Strategy Video, we look at three trends that are well-established in the market with different degrees of conviction and maturity (risk, Euro and Dollar), and determine which pairs are best positioned for a tide change.
