How to Build Your Trading Watchlist

Build a Map to the Markets

The ThinkForex platform offers over 85 instruments, an amount that can be overwhelming to many. How does one find the opportunities that are worth focusing on and filtering everything else out? This guide helps traders build a trading watchlist meaning a list of instruments they will watch for trading opportunities. It discusses the following subjects:

  • Understanding your edge: What is your advantage in the market? How can you use your edge to find instruments to trade?
  • Market screening: What it is, as well as some basic examples of screening the market
  • Trends and directional bias: The case for filtering out markets that aren't exhibiting some directional bias (i.e. trending)
  • The 34 EMA: What it is, and an example of how it can be used to screen for trades
