Recently there have been a lot of large fast moves in the financial markets, due to the recent stock market crash, and this has also affected the forex markets, so I am going to share the 2 best trading strategies to tackle such situations.
Although they are quite rare in the stock market, such fast moves are actually quite common on the intraday market, and professional day traders who do news trading or intraday trading will be quite familiar with them.
When I was trading professionally, we would see such sharp moves a few times a week, be it a market crash or market spike.
For retail traders, the best trading strategy is to stay out, and wait for dust to settle before coming back into the market. The idea is to stick to your area of competency, if your trading strategy is not suitable for fast markets or news trading.
For those who want to try out fast trading in the stock market or forex market, there are 2 basic trading strategies:
1. Breakout trading + momentum trading
2. Fade extreme moves, like overbought or oversold conditions
The most important part of any strategy is to have a gameplan before you enter the market, or else you will part of be someone’s gameplan.
Your game plan should include your trading strategy, and specific points you will have your entry, stoploss, target, etc.
This way, once the market is open, you can just focus on execution instead of trying to strategize and execute at the same time.
This is especially important if the market is moving fast, or during a market crash, because there is no time to think, and very emotional, hence it would be impossible to make good trading decisions on the fly.
You will end up trying to chase every price movement, and you will always be one step behind those who have a solid game plan and a consistent trading strategy.
