The problem with counter trend trading which is a valid approach in forex unless you can prove otherwise is related to the high leverage and when reaching scenarios not encountered in historical data, say the range between high and low.
If the latter has not been tested then it is better just to close all trades at a certain level because once you are in it is hard to get out unless you hedged from the start.

Leverage creates additional risk and loss exposure. Before you decide to trade foreign exchange, carefully consider your investment objectives, experience level, and risk tolerance.
You could lose some or all of your initial investment. Do not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Educate yourself on the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial or tax advisor if you have any questions.
