Profitable Forex Swing Trade Setups Review (win rate: 50%)
In this Forex trading vlog, I share the results of the Forex swing trade setups I entered and missed earlier in the week. Vlog #221.
My 4 Forex Swing Trade Setups Review
Trade #1: AUD/CAD in progress
The price on this currency pair reached the 0.97 support area. That's an area I identified from the daily/weekly chart. Once I saw that the price reached the area, I started to monitor lower timeframes to look for my specific reversal trade setup.
A Forex swing trade setup appeared on the 4hr chart. I aim for 3R on this particular trade.
Trade #2: AUD/USD stopped out
The price on this currency pair reached an upward trending line, identified from the daily/weekly chart. Although less reliable, trades from trendlines can sometimes provide high rewards in a short period of time.
A Forex swing trade setup appeared on the 4hr chart once again. It was stopped out by price creating a new low.
Trade #3: CAD/CHF break-even
This currency pair was reaching 0.77 earlier last week. That level marks an important support area from the daily chart.
A Forex swing trade setup appeared on the 1hr chart once again. It was stopped out by price creating a new low. However, since the price is at the top of the support zone, I will keep monitoring the currency pair for another opportunity.
Trade #4: USD/SGD take profit
1.37 was a major resistance area on the pair. After a break-even attempt taken a few weeks ago, I was still monitoring the area for a potential trade.
My reversal setup formed on the 4hr chart by a candle that broke the 1.37 price level. I exited at R = 1 and R = 3 for an average of 2R.
