One of the reason, I love to write articles in dukascopy contest, is to instill deep rooted habit by way of seemingly right knowledge passionately. So that even in my deep sleep I click right buttons. In that effort today’s article is about Trends in Forex market. I myself am a scalper and now I am trying to develop into trend following scalper. In that sense I am trying how to identify and when to enter. Broadly this article will help people who are doing Trend trading. So let’s begin.
What is trend

  • The trend is simply the general direction of market.
  • Markets don’t generally move in a straight line but are characterized by series of Zig-Zags.

Trend Direction

  • An uptrend is a series of successively higher peaks and troughs.
  • A downtrend is just the opposite, a series of declining peaks and troughs.

Here are the tips that helped me to finally create this habit. These rules are not specific to trading and can be used to build any habit in any area of your life!
The 1 Minute Rule

How do we get on the path of building a habit? This is where the 1 minute rule comes in! If your goal is to keep a trading journal, at
the end of every trading day, take one minute and write down your trades. Even simpler, at the close of trading just write down 1 sentence. This could be your best or worst trade of the day, your trading mood, or a combination of both. Here’s an example:
