TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: TRENDS,SUPPORT AND RESISTANCE
Charts, charts, charts. When most people think about trading Forex,they think about watching price movements flash by them on thecharts and making money as they jump in and out of profitable trades.This is where traders show whether or not they have what it takes tobe successful in Forex market.Technical analysis, or chart reading, is the next natural step availableafter you have conducted your fundamental analysis. Fundamentalanalysis helps you determine whether you should trade a particularcurrency pair. Technical analysis helps you determine when you shouldbuy or sell that currency pair.Many traders consider technical analysis to be somewhat of an art formthat anyone can master with a little time and practice. To get started,you should focus on becoming comfortable with the followingfoundational concepts of technical analysis:

TRADING WITH THE TREND
The key to making money in Forex is identifying trend and trading withit. Trends tell you where prices will most likely be going in the future. Ifthe trend of a currency pair is pointing up, you need to buy thecurrency pair to make money. If the trend of a currency pair is pointingdown, you need to sell the currency pair to make money. If the trend ofa currency pair is pointing sideways, you either need to alternatebetween buying and selling or wait until the trend points up or downto make money. Whatever you do, never fight the trend. It will be anexpensive battle if you do.Trends do not move straight up or straight down. They usually move inone direction for a while and then retrace part of the previousmovement before turning back around and continuing on the previousdirection. Every time a currency pair turns around and begins moving inthe opposite direction, it forms a new high or a new low. New highsform when a currency pair moves higher and then turns around andmoves lower. New lows form when a currency pair moves lower andthen turns around and moves higher. Identifying these highs and lowsallows you to identify whether a currency pair is in an uptrend, a downtrend or a sideways trend.
Up trends
currency pairs that are trending upward form a series ofhigher highs and higher lows.
