Day Trading

Forex Day Trader

Day trading is another short term trading style, but unlike scalping, you are typically only taking one trade a day and closing it out when the day is over. These traders like picking a side at the beginning of the day, acting on their bias, and then finishing the day with either a profit or a loss. They DON’T like holding their trades overnight.

Day trading are suited for forex traders that have enough time throughout the day to analyze, execute and monitor a trade. If you think scalping is too fast but swing trading is a bit slow for your taste, then day trading might be for you.

You might be a forex day trader if:

  • You like beginning and ending a trade within one day.
  • You have time to analyze the markets at the beginning of the day and can monitor it throughout the day.
  • You like to know whether or not you win or lose at the end of the day.

You might NOT be a forex day trader if:

  • You like longer or shorter term trading.
  • You don’t have time to analyze the markets and monitor it throughout the day.
  • You have a day job.

Some things to consider if you decide to day trade:

Stay informed on the latest fundamentals events to help you choose a direction

You will want to keep yourself up-to-date on the latest economic news so that you can make your trading decisions at the beginning of the day.

Do you have time to monitor your trade?

If you have a full time job, consider how you will manage your time between your work and trading. Basically….don’t get fired from your job because you are always looking at your charts!

Types of Day Trading

Trend trading

Trend trading is when you look at a longer time frame chart and determine an overall trend. Once the overall trend is established, you move to a smaller time frame chart and look for trading opportunities in the direction of that trend. Using indicators on the shorter time frame chart will give you an idea of when to time your entries. For an example of this style of trading, visit Pip Surfer’s blog as he trades his world-renowned Cowabunga System.

First determine what the overall trend is by looking at a longer time frame. You can use indicators to help you confirm the trend.

Day Trading System

Once you determine the overall trend, you can then move to a smaller timeframe and look for entries in the same direction. Remember this? It’s called Multi-time Frame Analysis!

Countertrend trading

Counter trend day trading is similar to trend trading except that once you determine your overall trend, you look for trades in the opposite direction. The idea here is to find the end of a trend and get in early when the trend reverses. This is a little more risky but can have huge payoffs.

Counter trend day trading

In this example we see that there was a long and exhausted downtrend on the 4hr chart. This gives us. an indication that the market may be ready for a reversal.

15-minute countertrend entry

Since our thinking is “counter-trend”, we would look for trades in the opposite direction of the overall trend on a smaller timeframe such as a 15 minute chart.

Four hour countertrend reversal

Remember that going opposite of the trend is very risky, but if timed correctly, can have huge rewards!

Breakout trading

Breakout day trading is when you look at the range a pair has made during certain hours of the day and then placing trades on either side, hoping to catch a breakout in either direction. This is particularly effective when a pair has been a tight range because it is usually an indication that the pair is about to make a big move. Your goal here is to set yourself up so that when the move takes place you are ready to catch the wave!

Breakout day trading

In breakout trading, you determine a range where support and resistance have been holding strongly. Once you do, you can set entry points above and below your breakout levels. As a rule of thumb you want to target the same amount of pips that makes up your determined range. Make sure you check out our “Trading Breakouts” lesson so you get this down pat!

日内交易

即日平仓交易是另一种短期交易风格,你通常一天进行一个交易,在当天结束前了结交易。这类交易者喜欢在一天开始时依据他们自己的见解选择一边开始交易,然后结束一天交易,或赢或赔。他们不把交易留过夜。

即日平仓交易者是那些在一天之中有足够的时间分析、执行和监控交易的人。如果你认为超短线交易太快,而波段交易有点慢,那即日平仓交易或许适合你。

你能成为一名即日平仓交易者,如果:

你在一天之间开始、结束交易。

在一天开始时你有时间分析市场,而且可以整天监控市场。

你想在一天结束时知道你是获利还是受损。

你不能成为一名即日平仓交易者,如果:

你喜欢长期或短期交易。

你没有时间分析市场,并一整天监控它的变化。

你白天要工作。

如果你要进行即日平仓交易,你需要考虑:

及时了解最新的基本事件,帮你定位方向

你想让自己掌握最新的经济新闻,从而在一天开始时,制定出交易决定。

你有时间监控交易吗?

如果你有全职工作,想想你要如何平衡你的工作和交易。基本上……不要因为总盯着图表看而被炒了鱿鱼。

即日平仓交易的类型

趋势交易

趋势交易是指你查看时间段较长的图表,以确定整体趋势。一旦整体趋势确立了,你可以转向时间段较短的图表,沿着趋势走向寻找交易机会。在时间段较短的图表上使用指示器将帮助你找到合适的入场点位。

首先通过观察时间段较长的图表确定整体趋势。你可以用指示器来帮助你确认走势。

一旦你确定了整体走势,你可以转向时间段较短的图表,沿着同一方向寻找入场点位。记住了吗?这叫多时段分析!

反向交易

反向交易与趋势交易类似,一旦你确定了整体趋势,你反向寻找交易机会。也就是说,找到一个趋势的终结点,在趋势反转时先行进入。这有点冒险,不过回报巨大。

我们在这个例子里看到的是四小时图表上显示的一个延续较长时间,即将耗尽的下行趋势。它告诉我们市场即将出现逆转。

由于我们的想法是“逆势”的,我们将在与整体趋势相反的方向里寻找交易,通常是在时间段较短,如在15分钟的图表上寻找。

记住逆势是风险很高的,但如果使用得当,可以带来巨大的收益!

突破交易

突破交易是指你在一天中的一段时间观察一对货币的走势,然后在走势的两侧都设定交易,期望能在其中一边抓住突破交易。当货币对波动幅度较小时,这类交易十分有效,因为它通常意味着较大的变动将会出现。你的目标是设定好点位,等待变动出现,以便能够抓住它。

在突破交易中,你确定一个支撑和阻力持续较强的范围。完成后,你可以在突破水平上下设定入场点位。

首要规则是你的目标点数要能弥补你确定的范围。查看“交易突破”课程,并记牢它。
