Thread: What is the best time to enter and exit a trend?

  1. #1
    A very simple question that's been asked before. So when do you believe is the best time to enter a trend? When is the best time?

    How can you decide when an opportune time to enter is going to occur? How do you decide when the ideal time to exit is going to occur?

    At the risk of sounding like a smartass, the best time to put in a trend is near the beginning. The time to depart is near the finish.

    With respect to what's possible via analysis, what's a good time to get into when you understand a thing is trending, and also a good time to exit when you there is a strong probability the trend is over?

    I'm thinking that a good setup for entering a fad would be when the market has pulled back, and then started to go in the direction of this trend again. A good stop loss level would be below the low of this pullback. However, I notice there are instances when this egy can give rise to a lot of losses when the pullback is intense and has a lot of corrections.

    Hi zamakhtar,

    If I hear you correctly you are asking when is the ideal time to put in a fashion while the currency is trending? I personaly would await the retracement area and would generally use fibonacci to loe this area. Then let your own body tell you when to enter the trade.

    Depending on your system a good time to exit might be when you receive an entry sign to the opposing direction.

    cheers

    Loing a strong support is simple, but finding the strong resistance level seems to be harder. How do you go about doing this? There are times that you run the risk of cutting your winners too short because you closed at a resistance level that was finally broken through.

    By cutting on your winners too short, you are unable to then pay for your losses.

    Tendencies are shaped on higher time frames so your guess is great us mine at which to search for trends.so for entering the tendency use lower time frames and put a reasonable stop

    Simple question to answer as price can only go up or down so every trend must start with a change on a 1 minute chart, well really a tick chart but spread produces that unrealistic to exchange. When the 1 minute goes from trending down to trending upward its the beginning of the new trend, when it reverse again eg starts to trend then the trend is over....How long its likely to trend one way or another is completely unknown at time of entry of course but if you knew you wouldn't be asking question like this would youpersonally, no nor could I.

    Good thing would be your risk is quite little and the payoff big, likely best to exchange a volitile pair with a high adr.

    Hope that helps good luck with your trading...

    Hello zam, I wrote about this specific issue here: http://tradergrowth.com/create-tradi...rofits-part-2/

    The short answer is:

    You need rules to recognize a trend. With a moving average or just looking at greater highers higher lows or lower highs and lower lows is the simplest in my own experience. As for when to input, you'll have to decide for yourself. Have a look at the AUD/USD or even the EUR/USD charts at the moment which have been trending strongly for a little while today. Where would've good entries been in hindsight? Can you see comparable setups today?

    The unfortunate reality is that we can not know when a fad will finish. You move with price and choose it for all it is worth but you can only take what the market is willing to give. We can not forecast the future we can only manage our positions when we are right and reduce our losses when we are wrong.
