Making predictions regarding forex market movements may be a difficult task. However, modern traders have access to more resources and tools than ever before. Forex (short for “foreign exchange”) is one of the most popular and busy markets in the world. In terms of it, more than $5 trillion a day is traded, making billions with which stock markets operate look insignificant. This article will focus on different tools and approaches.

The Approaches to Predicting Forex Movements

Before you select an approach to forex trading, you need to craft a basic strategy. Among other things, it should include the currency pairs you want to trade. Some traders focus on major pairs, such as GBP/USD, EUR/USD, or USD/JPY. Meanwhile, other investors operate less popular pairs with equal efficiency. 

Another thing you need to consider is the timeframe within which you want to trade. You can start afresh every single day, focus on more extended periods between 2 and 14 days, or even hold positions for months. Everything depends on your strategy and willingness to take risks. 

Besides, you need to think about whether you want to deal with proactive forex trading or alternative models. These include momentum trading that relies on rapid price movements at the beginning of long-term trends and range trading based on spotting the points in which resistance or support occurred in the past and expecting for these patterns to repeat in the future. 

Fundamental and Technical Analysis in Forex Predictions

Forex trading relies on insights to a significant extent. In turn, they may be obtained through fundamental or technical analysis. In this context, fundamental analysis means the process of analyzing the external events and evaluating their impact on the currencies’ value. Meanwhile, technical analysis attempts to predict future currency price fluctuations based on statistics, historical price charts, and specific trading indicators.
