What is forex?Forex is Foreign exchange.It is the opportunity to trade two currencies against each other. If you think one currency will be stronger versus the other, and you end up correct, then you can make a profit. If you’ve ever traveled to another country, you usually had to find a currency exchange booth at the airport, and then exchange the money you have in your wallet into the currency of the country you are visiting.The foreign exchange market, which is usually known as “forex” or “FX,” is the largest financial market in the world. The Forex market is a global, decentralized market where the world’s currencies change hands. Exchange rates change every second so the market is constantly moving. Most of the currency transactions that occur in the global foreign exchange market are bought (and sold) for speculative reasons. Currency traders (also known as currency speculators) buy currencies hoping that they will be able to sell them at a higher price in the future.

    Reversal Chart Patterns

     

    Reversal patterns are those chart formations that signal the ongoing trend is about to change course. If a reversal chart pattern forms during an uptrend, it hints that the trend will reverse and that the price will head down soon. Conversely, if a reversal chart pattern is seen during a downtrend, it suggests that the price will move up later on.

    Continuation Chart Patterns

    Continuation Chart Patterns

    Continuation chart patterns are those chart formations that signal that the ongoing trend will resume. Usually, these are also known as consolidation patterns because they show how buyers or sellers take a quick break before moving further in the same direction as the prior trend. Trends don’t usually move in a straight line, higher or lower. They pause, move sideways, “correct” lower or higher, and then regain momentum to continue the overall trend.

    Bilateral Chart Patterns

    Bilateral Chart Patterns

    Bilateral chart patterns are a bit more tricky because these signal that the price can move either way. A bilateral signal. This is where triangle formations fall in. To play these chart patterns, consider both scenarios (upside or downside breakout) and place one order on top of the formation and another at the bottom of the formation. If one order gets triggered, you can cancel the other one. Either way, you’d be part of the action. The only problem is that you could catch a false break if you set your entry orders too close to the top or bottom of the formation.
