How Do I Trade the Forex Volatility?

You need to have a good understanding of chart patterns, which usually comes with experience. But levels and indicators can help you even if you are a beginner. To trade the forex volatility you need to do the following:
  1. Draw a trend channel with support and resistance lines (not levels) so you can see a pattern in the volatility.
  2. Add an oscillator (RSI) to get an indication of an entry price.
  3. Use Fibonacci retracement or other indicators to find a confluence zone with the oscillator you chose (RSI).
  4. If you find an entry, check to see what’s the upside (distance till the next resistance/support of the channel, depending on buy or sell).
  5. If the trade is worth it (depending on RR – risk/reward) place it. If not, mark the chart 5-10 pips away from the nearest support/resistance line (where the price is heading to). You can also set an alarm for when the price hits your marker (this can be done in both MT4 and tradingview) or even set a limit order to trigger later.
