It may be tempting to simply look at the markets daily moves and try to profit from them. A trader may get lucky every once in a while but that is no way to make consistent profits. A long term, methodical approach will ultimately lead to more profitable trades. This broader view along with discipline is key to long term trading. <br />A winning trading strategy must be grounded on sound forex trading basics. Having a systematic approach in your forex analysis gives you consistent data that you can look at in a glance. This type of system instills confidence in the trader and his or her trades as it removes the emotional aspect involved in trading and money in general.<br />Forex Analysis - Basic Charting For Success ( Courtesy of )<br />
