How I am Trading the Forex Majors This Week, March 30

Cory Mitchell, CMT

This week has started off a bit slower than the past couple of weeks have. We are seeing consolidations on the 4-hour charts on the EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, USDCAD, AUDUSD, and NZDUSD.

The USDCAD had an early move up, while the EURUSD had a move to the downside in early trading this week. That said, they are once again consolidating.

So all these pairs are awaiting consolidation breakouts. I am willing to trade in either direction since the moves are big enough to likely be profitable. 

I am using a trailing stop loss on my positions, and Renko charts are the preferred choice right now.

The charts in the video are 4-hour charts. The 4- or 1-hour charts just provide an overall context. I then drop down to a 15- or 5-minute chart to find consolidations near the edges of the consolidations on the 4-hour or hourly charts. I then trade a breakout of the small consolidation.

Since all these pairs involve the USD, pick one pair and trade the normal position size. Or trade two or three USD positions, but use a 1/2 or 1/3 position size in each.
