How to trade with FX Trend?
Look for established and powerful trends on higher timeframes like e.g.:
a D1 trend with a duration of 10 days and a high intensity of at least 85 % which is equal to a 5-star rating.
This major trend points the direction of all further trades at this and all lower time frames.
Use the power of the strong forces in the market and surf this trend wave until it breaks.

- Place a BUY stop order at the last high of this trend

B. If the direction of this major trend is SELL
