Using Moving Averages in Forex Trading (Part 1 of 2)
Moving averages remain the most commonly-used method of evaluating the current price trend. Moving averages reduce the impact of exchange rate fluctuations making it easier for you to better assess overall direction. By incorporating so-called "fast" and "slow" moving averages on the same price chart, it is possible to generate trade signals showing potential buy and sell opportunities.
Leveraged trading carries a high degree of risk and may not be suitable for all - You can lose more than you invest. Seek independent advice if necessary and carefully consider your financial objectives, level of experience, and appetite for risk prior to entering this market. Most importantly, do not invest money that you are not in a position to lose.
