How to Trade in a Higher Volatility Market
Volatility has increased in all markets since the start of the year and the forex market is no exception. What we have seen are one way spikes and drops on news that in a lower volatility market would have had a smaller reaction or just be shrugged off.
This offers opportunites for traders to take advanatge of the increased volatility but at the same time a need to be aware of getting caught on the wrong side of the market,
The risk for the average trader is getting stopped out with slippage or if not using a stop (not suggested) then relying on hope or prayer that you can hang on before reaching the point of pain or getting margined out. This suggests a need to find something that helps to avoid getting caught in the wrong side while at the same time looking for ways to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the increase in volatility.
The most obvious way is to be aware of what news/data is coming out. But that is not enough. You need more to keep you aware of what side of the market is at risk and thus technically vulnerable to a surprise news headline.
What we have found is that in most cases the Amazing Trader was already signaling the risk when one of those one-way news reactions took place. At a minimum this would keep traders from being exposed to a surprise and at best positioned on the right side.
While there is nothing that protects a trader 100% from a surprise, there are steps you can take to mitigate the risk and at the same time look to take advanatge of it. One of those steps is to get access to the Amazing Trader and the patterns its trading lines form.
