i choose fx because it was basically affordable to start off in, Ive been looking at giving futures ago but still learning everything or not getting any where in the last 4 to 5 months so im not trying to jump the gun. mainly go for eur/usd an aud/usd... main reason is because they seem liquid an easy to identify a trend .. aus / dollar is usually safe for me, i feel like it sticks to its track, an have had good trades from it, as well as the eur/usd though.. i got a plan, im not completely sure how to explain it though.. but i look at higher tfs to identify the overall trend go back to lower tfs an try find a point from where itll run in the same direction.. look at events/news to see if it'll help carry it in that direction.. also use rsi and stochastic, wait for rsi to go below or above 50 to decide a buy or sell, look at stochastic over brought or over sold to see if its heading for my preferred direction... i don't trade heading into supply or demand zones..or support an resistance, and also don't trade if the candles spiked at a somewhat decent distance from the 20/50 ema as i have a sense it could pull back...but going by these last bits really seems like you cant pull anything off. ive been thinking of lower time frames like 30 or 15 mins to see i can catch some a bit faster than waiting for the 4hr or sometimes 1 but haven't worked out a plan for a lower tf yet. whats giving me the shits lately is with like eur/usd .. im not sure if its going to continue up further or reverse an carry on down.. but whats getting to me is the waiting ... and i am patient, but this is seeming long, even looking at directions of other pairs nothing seems to move much and i dont know if its just me sitting around, cause it seems like others on the net are actually trading.. or that im waiting on a to high of a time frame which is whats taking longer even though lower time frames seem to not move as well.. cause its all following the same price. i don't know if that's a decent reply/or along the lines of a decent answer to your question but that's where im at.. if i explained it correctly to catch any understanding from it.
