Forex basket Trade the NEWS : 10:34 06-Sep-19

For most new traders, the biggest challenge is getting a profitable strategy that works
for the long term. Usually, trend-following systems are favored because they tend to have
a very good risk-to-reward ratio. Trading the currency market is essentially a numbers
game, basically traders look for strategies or systems that have a positive overall
yield. The profit factor of any strategy is also very essential, because a profitable
strategy should make more money or pips, than it loses. After some extensive research,
I have discovered one of such systems. This strategy is built on one of the oldest
trading adages around; “cut your losses early and let your profits run”
and “the trend is your friend”.

Basket trading involves opening a series of correlated or uncorrelated trades, and after
an adequate amount of time, closing the trades when the overall sum of the trades
is positive i.e. when the net value of all open trades is positive or close to our
targeted profit-value.

It is not 100% guarantee.

The Trading setup

The truth behind the Forex market is that currencies trend. This means that currencies have a tendency to keep gaining or diminishing over a long period of time. There are a lot of concepts about trading cycles and swings, but in reality if we were to zoom out of our charts we would notice a very obvious and unmistakable trend direction. Basket trading involves gauging the potential strength or weakness of a pair, and placing several trades that align with that analysis.
