How to trade the Forex Grid system. A detailed introduction on how hedging trades create gains

Grid trading has become

Grid trading has become very popular amongst forex traders because it does not use stops, is highly mechanical, has no reliance on direction, uses the natural wavy nature of the market, does not require indicators or charts to trade and can be easily automated.

On the downside it can appear complex and illogical initially, it can incur large drawdowns if poorly managed, requires more patience than normal and may require forex traders to make a huge paradigm shift it their thinking.

Grid trading refers to the trading approach which uses fixed price levels to enter and exit trades. Grid gaps are the gaps between these price levels.

The steps to trading the grid system are simple:

Step 1: A trader would start out by selecting a grid gap suitable to the currency traded.

Step 2: The trader would enter a simultaneous Buy and Sell in the currency. Normally this will be done at a round number value price for the particular currency.

Step 3: The transaction price would move away from the entry value by the grid gap value determined in step 1

Step 4: At that level the trader would enter another simultaneous buy and sell transaction. The trader will also cash-in or close the profitable transaction from the previous level and leave the negative transaction open

Step 5: Continue trading until positive or breaking even when the price reaches the next grid level. When this happens cash-in or close all transactions and start all over. You would also cash-in all your transactions if your transactions have reached your predetermined maximum drawdown level.

So using the process above you will make a profit every time the price moves from your start position to the next grid level and back again. This is called the one hundred percent retracement formation. You will also make a profit if the price moves from your start position two levels away and retraces to the previous level. This called a fifty percent retracement formation. The trader will breakeven if the price moved 3 levels away from the starting point and then retraces for one level.

The trick is to control losses as positive transactions are cashed in on a linear basis while losses grow exponentially if left unchecked. If is therefore generally recommended that grid trading should not go beyond the fourth level from the starting point. When this happens it is better to close all transactions. The loss should be approximately six times the grid gap size at that point.

The key success factors to Grid Trading is selecting currencies that are range bound and selecting grid sizes that will protect your trades from reaching the forth grid level from your starting point. As with every trading technique it should be thoroughly back traded and tested before being used in live trading.

All of this may sound very complicated but many times convenience of a profitable mechanised trading technique outweighs the downsides. For more videos on the Forex grid system watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkdtwR8B530&index=3&t=0s&list=PLda98agBeOd490Tmk-hda4c1r8qnVRTYN

Great system...but why close all trades if you have 200 pips win? When you beginn new, you have to reopen two trades. I think the open trades come sooner or later in win. What is the advantage to do this?


It seems like it's not necessary to go in both directions. Just wait for a movement of one level and go the opposite direction and add to or close the position depending on which direction it goes from there. Once that trade is closed, wait for a movement of one level from the previous exit and repeat the process.

If you wanne make real money by a real company without investments then try this.SUREMONY.NET78.NET


This is a martingale bet with a ratio of 1 for averaging down. There is absolutely no reason to cash in at each level, which just costs you spread and commission. You can just open a sell at each gridline and close everything after a retracement. In a trending market you might not be able to get a sufficient retracement until you run out of funds.

If you really want to be wealthy, go get a job, and then start a part time business. As your part time business gets bigger, it will sooner or later take over your job and become a full time business. I can't help you find a job, but I can at the very least direct you to a clever part time business. Go Google Candid Cash Code.

I back tested this on the nzd/jpy and the results were remarkable. Over 8 months 13 wins, zero draws, and one stop out. The $1000 loss was easily overshadowed by over $6000 in gains. I’m eager to test this on other pairs.

12:25 WRONG!!! Your first sell would be at -600 at the 3th level and your second sell at -400 and your 3th sell would be -200. A total of -1200 you gained +600 overall loss at step 3 would be -600. You cant even calculate your own system!

Wow good vid. Do you think mine are as informative?

Sam Allen

This system is completely flawed. Please nobody use this!! In any trending market you will end up with exponential losses that will blow your account. You are far better simply trying to trade support and resistance levels with good risk/reward levels.

Binary Options and Forex involve high risk but with all the risk, you are much better off just trading by yourself or with a real Binary trading software. It’s not an easy task to find a reliable service but i figured out few apps which work.Here i'm recommending few apps which would be helpful for you
1 :- VN ( Their Official Website >>> https://t.co/OPzdxLDfKb ) .
2 :- MB ( Their Official Website >>> https://t.co/ZYBPxNYvTk ) .
3 :- CR ( Their Official Website >>> https://t.co/DECfzudPfw ) .
Thank you for taking your time

so what happens when a position goes 1000 pips negative, you blow your account. All grid systems blow accounts at some point.


Great! cheeers ★
