I don't think there's a 'best' strategy for intraday FX trading. Just start out by picking a directional bias through fundamental and basic technical analysis and start putting on positions as the trend pulls back or as the range hits an extreme, cut losses short and don't be afraid to keep taking small positions until your bias changes. Also time of day has a lot to do with consistent intraday set ups.
