Inclining markets offer us the best chance to benefit since the market is unmistakably moving one general way; we can utilize this data to further our potential benefit by hoping to enter the market toward the pattern. An upturn is set apart by a progression of higher highs and higher lows, and a downtrend is set apart by a progression of lower highs and lower lows.

Problem that by the time an uptrend is identified the move is already finished and the price may reverse. Seeing a trend is easy in hindsight but in a live market there are too many fake trends

What is the trend?
On different timeframes you are getting different results.
I traded both long and short today and yet acquired profit.
It is more matter of trading system and trading rules because if there is clear trend why would anyone trade against it?
Everybody would simply go with tren and make profit but markets do not work this way.

Basically I am considering the market trend based on D1 time frame! In addition, H4 provides me the trend conformation!

The market should be considered in several time frames to determine the main direction and further inferiors and one more, trend trading is now trading according to the current trend, sometimes, you should wait and trade against it.

I basically count the trend according to the status of daily time frame; since it’s relatively stable than the smaller time frames!

Very good point. I had never thought about trends in that way

Looking at the how the market is moving and finding low risk points to enter the market according to the trend. Holding on to the position till the trend reverses its direction. That is what is trend trading for me. Well, I like to combine both range trading and trend trading, that helps me better.

Well I do usually trade according to my own logic.
On contrary many traders follow the best practices published for Forex trading...
... and any of them are losing money :)

I tried finding 'finding low risk points to enter the market according ' but the price always keeps on falling when I enter. It is like whenever I enter at a 'dip low' the price is actually reversing and wipes out my stop loss

That means; you are trading against the market trend; do you use support/resistant levels on your trading chart?

I don’t think; trading against the market trend is a good choice! Because more than 70% the market follow it’s previous trend!

Good explanation. However, to find a good entry and exit point trader also have to determine the trend strength. Otherwise, while you are waiting for one, you are missing out on a highly profitable trend right in front of you.

What matter is your strategy to trade specific markets.

If you are strategizing on trend trading, you will lose out on days of consolidation.
If you are strategizing on range trading, you will lose out on days of trending.

Plan well, trade well, and risk manage well.

It's true that trend is our friend. But market doesn't move in trend all the time. Sometimes for a long time market remains in the consolidation phase. That's why we need to learn to trade in both the market. We have to adapt ourselves with changing market scenario.

It seems to me that working with a trend is a classic approach.
And today, many market participants prefer to use something more unusual and bold, and this is directly related to the current changes in the market.

I know traders who trade by trend and I know those who trade against trend. And all these traders make good profits. So what is the secret? The individual features of analysis, the choice of timeframe for analysis, the size of the leverage and the time of opening an order. So perhaps the most important thing is to use what you understand well and what you can implement in practice.

The Forex market depends on the context. This context refers to market volatility and trend momentum. The Forex market operates in 4 ways, such as Impulsive / Corrective / Volatile / and Non-Volatile. If you can understand this momentum, you will understand the trading trends better. These 4 momentum are usually called contexts.

Trading in the trending market is very profitable. Once you pick the trend you are good to go. But the problem is any pair doesn't trend all the time. A good amount of time price remains in range bound. That's why we need to be expert in both kind of markets.

If you are trading against the market, the price always falls when you are trading. Try to learn more about the market trends.
