Talking Points:

• There are three general market types: range, breakout and trending

• The three are separated by technical depth, fundamental event risk and general market activity

• We look at what category EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, S&P 500 and others fall into

What kind of Trading best suits you? Technical or Fundamental? Short-term or Long-term? Take our Trader Survey and find out.

Most retail speculators seek out the rush and potential of breakout setups; but such trades can be risky, ill-established and scarce. There are three general market types - range and trend in addition to breakout - and there is always an opportunity in each category if you know where to look and what to look for. Where do you think EURUSD fits in this scheme? How about GBPUSD, the Yen crosses and S&P 500? We look at these different market types and highlight different pairs that best fit the requirements in today's Strategy Video.
