Introduction to Day-Trading Strategies

The day-trading strategies are very popular among Forex traders as they provide the chance of making fast and good profits on a daily basis. Day-traders are using high capital leverage and therefore they are exposed to high levels of market risk. Day-Traders are trading any pair among the Forex majors (USD, EUR, JPY, CHF, CAD, AUD, NZD) but they prefer three particular pairs EURUSD, GBPUSD and USDJPY as these pairs are offered with the tightest spreads in the market.

Characteristics of a Day-Trading Strategy

The following Day-Trading strategies are characterized by the high Take Profit / Loss (P/L) Ratio. The P/L ratio in Day-Trading strategies is far greater than in scalping strategies and exceeds it may even exceed P/L=2. Moreover, in contradiction with the scalping strategies you get a far less number of trades on a daily basis (3-6).

■ Daily Trades: 3 – 6 trades

■ Profit/Loss Ratio: 1.5 – 2.5

■ Leverage: 1:50 – 1:200

■ Spreads: very important (max 2.0-2.5 pips)

■ Slippage: very important

■ Overnight Charges: Day-Traders should not keep open positions overnight, therefore irrelevant

■ Upcoming News: they generally avoid trading 30 minutes before and after important news

As in the case of scalping, day-trading should be limited only in low-cost trading opportunities. That means a Forex Day-trader usually selects to trade only the Forex Majors. In the case of a Metals Day-Trader, he selects to trade Gold and Silver.
