Trend retrace system trade entry

Recommended Posts

I have just place a trade on Eurusd using the trend retrace strategy


You can get detailed strategy here:





The trend retrace strategy  enters trades, after a trend has been established on the 4 hour and daily charts.The trade is entered after a retrace in the trend.I usually use a small stop below the last low, in an uptrend.

This is a live trade , it can breakdown, nothing is certain.More images below with videos

What is a Retracement?

A retracement is simply a short-term reversal in the trend, a pullback in an uptrend or a rally in a downtrend.

The market rarely moves higher or lower in a straight line. After a market has made an initial push, we often see a reversal, a retracement in price. Given the frequency of this occurrence we are able to get into the market at this retracement level and take part in the larger move.


Forex is not good for trend trading, good on trendy instruments.Euro does not want to trend.

I  have been trading them for years.In this thread I showed three trade able profitable opportunities  


You can see their retraces and subsequent forward thrusts.They work and make profit , more times than not  for me.People like you will screw up, when they get opportunities, like you screwed up on Dax. You were advised others to go  short when it was a trend retracement.It is the blind leading the newer blind to forex.If somebody of your status screwed up, think how many new traders will screw up.:smileylol::smileylol:


You guys don't need to attack my threads to screw up , the new traders will screw up anyway, by following the blind.Below are examples of trend retracements long term on DOW, EUR USD, DAX AND FTSE

If you are posting your trades to help other traders then you should add your entry, stop loss and target point so we can see what your aim is. Also, why did you think that was a retracement on eurusd? Would be helpful to know what you are thinking and why.


If it's just to document your trades then that's fine we don't need the above details.


If you can make 20-30% on a small account, then you'll be able to make it on a large account. When you are confident with the strategy and are trading larger sizes then it'll give others the confidence to follow and ask you more questions. Well done on the options trade.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
