Best Threads in the 'Forex' Forum

What are ‘Best Threads’ Stickies?
The idea behind ‘Best Threads’ Stickies is to have a thread pinned permanently at the top of every forum with links to threads within that forum that are of real merit with quality content. Listed here is the cream of the crop, the best threads in the Forex forum!

How will they help me?
T2W is a big place and good threads can quickly get lost under a sea of newer ones. The links to the ‘Best Threads’ will save you the hassle of wading through the forum yourself, hoping to find the one that’s filled with pearls of wisdom!

What do I need to know about the list?
Each ‘Best Thread' is accompanied by a short précis outlining what it’s about. Threads don’t appear in any particular order, so the thread at the top of the list isn’t necessarily any better or more interesting than the one at the bottom of the list.

I’ve found a great thread which warrants ‘Best Thread’ status. Can it be added?
Sure! If you know of a great thread within this forum that isn’t listed here, either post your suggestion here or contact timsk Content Manager, with a link to the thread, saying what it’s about and what’s good about it and, all being well, it will be added.

The ‘Best Threads’ in the Forex forum are:

re: Best Threads in the 'Forex' Forum

I believe that the best system is the one you develope for yourself, which can take a lot of trial and error,until you are satisfied. But then the end results are worth all the effort! I have gone through the process of reading the 'Books,' following the experts, trying so many different methods, systems etc., until I tired of it all and almost gave up. Now I'm glad that I persevered, because I'm now confident with method I'm using. Not a "system" just an approach to trading.
I trade on the 60 minute Candle Charts and use the 30 minutes for possible entry. All that I have infront of me, on my charts, are Price Action (candles) and the "Fibo. Channels." The channels acts as 'support/resistance' levels + trend direction.
I set the Fibo Channels in the direction of the trend on the 60 min. chart and only adjust it when base line (1st Red line) is completely broken.

I guess this is just another version of 'Naked Trading' that works for me! And if this helps anyone along the way, then I'm happy.

I'm not offering advice on how, where and when to trade, because I'm not qualified. I just explaining what works for me, and me alone.

Happy trading to all.

Among these, correlation strategies were good. The discussion has gone informative on various analyses and also provided numerous basic ideas. Has been an appropriate thread.

On the daily chart, the price is flying like a bird in a hurricane inside an accumulating rage. If it gets out of the range, we are expecting a trendy move.

Best trading is that which comforts you and there is always risk in the trade as no trade is gonna give you 100% profit. Be Optimistic!!!
Happy Trading to all!!!
