Trend lines are probably the most common form of technical analysis in forex trading. They are probably one of the most underutilized ones as well.
If drawn correctly, they can be as accurate as any other method. Unfortunately, most forex traders don’t draw them correctly or try to make the line fit the market instead of the other way around.
In their most basic form, an uptrend line is drawn along the bottom of easily identifiable support areas (valleys). In a downtrend, the trend line is drawn along the top of easily identifiable resistance areas (peaks).
How do you draw forex trend lines?
To draw forex trend lines properly, all you have to do is locate two major tops or bottoms and connect them.
