my broda e no easy as i think am. but my belief is still up. i just simply trade news events. For me the only time i will make a big swing and make money is when news breaks out.
Following a trend you are not sure if it will hit target. so i trade news events. Study forex calendar, know when a news will break out and which currency pair it will favour.
Then i set my entry/exit points whether buy or sell as the case may be. i make sure i dont spend much time in the market before i jet out.
When a news breaks out i wait a little bit to watch how the market will react to the news then i jump in and male sure i dont spend more then an hour, take the little profit i am able to make and hope for a better mews the following day.
