January 17, 2013

Summary: Price patterns indicate the possibility of USDOLLAR weakening over the next several weeks. Learn how to use a forex breakout strategy with the Donchian Channel Indicator to identify entry and exit points. A forex trading benefit of using a breakout strategy is that it can keep you out of SOME losing trades.

Head Trading Instructor Jeremy Wagner discusses:

*Anatomy of a breakout

*What 2 market environments are needed to improve the probability of follow through in a breakout

*Based on forex technical analysis (and using EURUSD, USDJPY, and GBPUSD), why the USDOLLAR may weaken

Price patterns suggest the EURUSD may reach 1.38 and GBPUSD may reach 1.64. See the explanations in the above video.

Also, if you need to download the Donchian Channel Indicator to your Marketscope Charts, it is available at no charge at FXCMApps.com.

As a bonus, around the 52 minute mark, a question was asked about scaling into positions. See how the emotion of indecisiveness influences my tendencies towards adding to positions.
