Best Timeframe to Trade in Forex

“What is the best timeframe to trade in Forex?” Isn’t that the question that many traders, especially the novices have asked themselves? When MT4, with just nine timeframes, was the only available trading platform for Forex retail traders, this question needed an answer. And with newer trading platforms with more timeframes today, answering this question is even more important.

Timing the Market vs Buy and Hold

In the capital markets industry, a lot of emphasis is put on timing, and this is especially true for the online Forex trading niche. Visit the website of any Forex broker or platform provider, and one of the first points they’ll make is how fast your orders are executed on their low latency trading infrastructure.

How to Trade Forex Like Banks Do

The majority of Forex traders are you and I; retail traders. We make up over 90% of all traders. The remaining 10% (or less) are smart money traders, such as banks. Smart money traders make the largest and most consistent profits between these two categories of traders. They are profitable 90% of the time. But retail traders lose money over 90% of the time.
