Dear All, I know some of us would have been around for a while; which strategy is the best and most profitable on Forex Factory from your experience? Kindly share with us.
This is an easy answer in my opinion. The most profitable trading system is one that is incredibly simple, very consistent, and can be scaled up. If you have a simple system with few rules, sound money management of 1:3 risk:reward or better, and you can trade methodically, you are on the best foundation. Long term profitability is built through consistent and simplistic systems that can be scaled up for the solid returns. Trade simple boring set ups, don't go chasing the action, and follow your rules, this builds a consistent model that has scale up potential. Once you get to the scaling up phase you are on the foot steps of dynamic monthly returns.

What we do in demo is most safest strategy and scalping is most profitable strategy. What we do in demo? Open trade and forget it. After some days or weeks or even months it automatically go in profit. I am practicing these both strategies in my Diamond account. I never losteven a single trade. Up tp date I just lost one trade and that was my mistake I was editing TP but mistakenly SL was set automatically. 1 did 168 trade and 167 closed in profit. Abviously I employ hedging or other strategies to overcome my losses. But have realised earning 10 to 20 percent is safest trading

This a great post.

Just one question...how do you determine your risk/reward ratio before entering a trade without predicting the future price?

Doesn't matter the account size. When the boomerang forget to come back, the account will be 0 ... and this will happen soon or later.

So you must think what is your purpose of testing this kind of strategy ...

I make sure the system I trade has 1:3 r to r capability from the start - I would never trade a system where my initial stop placement and primary target are any less than 1:3 risk to reward. Scalping, position trading, or swing trading, I must have 1:3 capability "baked into the cake" from the trade system right from the start.

When it's done correctly.. order Flow, without question.

Because:
It combines all facets of both fundamental and technical analysis in a non rigid way.

There's a reason all the order flow traders are too cool for this forum .
Doing it correctly.. that's another story/. Don't ask me =P

The more I study my own charts the more I come to the conclusion the most profitable strategy (besides insider-trading ) is: buying into strength and selling into weakness. Even when you can only grab some few pips, with the right leverage it's a cool thing.

How do retail forex traders see order flow? They see price movement ticks but no real volume.

The psychology of trading, what kind of trader am I? Thats the most important part to becoming successful at trading.

Day trader(me)? Swing trader? Long term/investor?

Find which one suits you best is the key to profitability. I was a terrible long term trader a kind of ok swing trader and a really good day trader(always thought day traders were nutz) but I like fast paced action, with other typed of trading I get bored and then the stupid decisions start.

There are tons of viable systems(the less complicated the better), but its recognizing what type of trader you are that will make you profitable.

rockypoint Aug 23, 2018 8:00pm | Post# 56

I like simple systems because again it suits my personality, some systems I see posted have bunches of indicators on the charts. This works for some people, but the large majority will find KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID their best option for a system.

As a further note I use 5 different day trading systems none of which are my own invention, just systems I saw that I found appealing and modified to suit me.

genghistar Aug 23, 2018 10:41pm | Post# 57

Well I don't really know but what I know is that a robust trading system must have:-
1. It must be able to be described and explained in 5 simple steps.
2. Executed or traded in 3 simple instructions based on the trading system above.
3. Minimum RRR > 2.
Simply put... simplicity with precise entry coupled with minimal risks and optimal rewards. Then you have a winning trading system.

So far I have to find even one system here in FF or even something close to it. Obviously this is to be totally expected.

Hehe

You can also use the TMA indicator to detect tops and bottoms with a timeframe of 240 set in the indicator settings

Don't trade against the trend.
