High Probability Trading would be the closest thing to a forex holy grail, right? But what is high probability trading and what does it involve? Are there any high probability forex trading strategies around? Here is the definition of high probability trading: So what percentage success are we talking about here?
As a matter of fact, nobody can tell you what percentage of trading success rate would count as high probability trading. But that fact is they are very few or very rare indeed. In my humble opinion, I believe that these two things below make or form high probability trading setups:. Well, in terms of support and resistance levels, these levels stand out. Every Tom, Dick and Harry traders in the world can see it.
The big financial institutions that trade the forex market can also see it. So the natural human response kicks in and prices behave predictably when it hits levels of support or resistance.

Therefore, the larger time frames play a significant role in this argument that high probability trading setups happen in them. I can give you a lot of examples in the daily, weekly and monthly charts of how prices behaved when it hit support and resistance levels but seriously, you learn a lot when you do the exploring yourself: So what is the best way to trade these high probability trading setups that happen in the larger time frames?
Now, I said previously that trading setups that happen in the larger timeframes take a lot of time to form…years even. With that, the chances of trade setups forming frequently in any of these 20 plus currency pairs increases, but regardless, its still going to be a long wait. Well, it think you need to separate the high probability trading in larger time frames from your daily or regular trading activity.
So essentially, its like a two separate trading really. So when the time comes and a trading setup in the larger timeframe is forming, how do you actually take the trade then? So when price was heading up to this resistance level I identified on the monthly chart, I then switched to the 4hr time frame for my trade entry and my sell signal was a bearish pin bar shooting star:. There are some forex trading strategies here that can be used successfully in trading the high probability forex trading setups in the larger timeframes:.
