Understanding The Myths of Market Trends and Patterns In Forex Trading
Most traders start by asking the correct question: “What's the current market trend?”, but then most of them fail to determine the trend correctly and almost all traders miss the next important question: “How reliable is the current trend?”
If you don't take the trend into account, you will often be tricked into placing low winning-probability trades. Trend is your friend. By following the trend it can only be better. But you have to distinguish between the real trend and very tempting price action that wants to play with your emotions.

We always keep trading simple and therefore we focus only on the most reliable chart patterns. With the following knowledge, you will be able to spot the patterns leading to explosive price movements and then trade profitably with it.
