Understanding trend and reversal in forex

Cutting to the chase, Trend trading occurs when you profit by following the existing price direction, which can be the main trend for a given time-frame.

  • When the main trend ends, another trend may emerge and cause the price to follow a different path than before.
  • A contrarian position is when one is expecting a trend reversal and is the reason for counter-trend operators.

Concepts of an asset being traded at a premium, or above its intrinsic value (overbought) or below at a discount, or below its intrinsic value (oversold) are quite common when trading. These concepts are true whether trading shares, forex, or nearly any asset class, and is echoed in the famous saying “buy low, sell high.”

Buying low and selling high, especially during trends and trend reversals, is one of the key points that we cover in this article.

A view of forex market trends and reversals

The overall attitude of investors toward particular security usually reflects its historical and current price movement, which creates a market sentiment of that asset. This market sentiment reflects not only the supply and demand factors but also the crowd psychology in terms of expectations and consensus. These sentiment indicators also connect concepts of overbought, oversold, and support and resistance levels.

📌 The forex market is much larger than the stock market or the futures market. However, unlike those exchange-traded markets, forex is off-exchange and decentralized, so information about volume and order flow is fragmented across different trading venues. Nonetheless, while large banks can affect the market, the impact is very small.  So, let us see if your stock strategy fits into forex trading.

In trend trading, you must identify that a trend in the price exists and must hope the price flow will follow the momentum. Identifying the trend and taking the right position can help you minimize the risk or recover later on from a losing trade if the trend resumes.

And in counter-trend trading, you must identify a trend reversal and follow it in order to profit from a trend reversal.

Searching for indicators, signals, systems, and determining the ones you think is best for your goals is very time-consuming. Most traders lose money because they have not prepared properly.

WiseInvest signals are the result of testing and validating with powerful and modern computational methodologies. After stress-testing a large number of various strategies, the best fit for us was trend trading.

From now on, we hope it will be more clear in your mind what is trend trading is versus trading a trend reversal.
