Adjusting for Risk in Volatile Conditions

Volatility is an unavoidable part of forex trading. But that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad thing: Many traders seek out volatility to generate profits from trades. And almost every trader understands the relationship between risk and reward: If you want to earn a profit from forex trading, you need to be comfortable with a certain degree of risk.

Nevertheless, too much volatility can rattle traders and call existing strategies into question. The recent market upheaval created by the COVID-19 pandemic is the perfect example of volatile conditions that have little precedent and can strike fear into traders. Some adjustments to your risk profile may be necessary, but there are also opportunities to take advantage of this volatility and use your analysis to forecast the long-term implications of ongoing market volatility.

Determining Overbought and Oversold Conditions Using Indicators

As a trader, being able to identify overbought and oversold market conditions can help you determine when to enter and exit a trade, what position to take, and when a trend reversal may be imminent. This insight allows you to manage risk and make more informed trading decisions. 

The most popular indicators used to identify overbought and oversold conditions are the relative strength index (RSI) and the stochastic oscillator. Both tools are momentum indicators and are plotted on a separate graph adjacent to that of the price action. They are also banded oscillators and, as such, have a set graphic range between 0-100.

Forex Exit Indicators: When to Exit Your Trade and Take a Profit

Timing is everything in forex trading. Enter a position too late, and you might miss out on the price movement you were hoping to use to generate a profit from your trade. 

The same is true when exiting a trade: If you exit too early, you might miss out on additional price action that would have fattened your profits. But if you hold on to a position too long, your profit margin could come crashing down as the price movement reverses and puts you at risk of taking a loss.

Experienced traders understand the importance of exiting as close to the peak of their potential profit as possible. Forex exit indicators can offer the foresight and information you need to identify the right exit opportunity and take a profit from your trading action.
