Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Watch as many or as few as you are comfortable with. I currently watch around 40 markets 20 of which are currencies. I also like to track the main fx drivers usdx, gbpx, chfx, jpyx, eurx. The other markets are either stock index's or commodities.

I'm currently watching EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY...

What other currency pairs do recommend watching? and Why?

Is watching 10 currency pairs too much?

I feel it depends on various things such as trading style, timeframe, etc etc.. I focus on Eur/Usd, but sometimes watch Usd/Jpy. Reason is EurUsd moves a lot and has low spread. Jpy has been moving lately and also has low spread. For my style it's much easier with the lowest spread. If I were to go out a little longer, as I tried before, I would watch GbpUsd and EurChf since they both trend nicely.

I prefer to watch only one pair at a time regardless. It allows me to focus and get a better feeling for what's going on.

Some people above have stated that the USD/CHF pair is good. I second that motion. The franc is stable because Switzerland is so neutral and such a small country. It is a good benchmark.
