There are times in the market where we find major currency moves resulting to losses for most traders.
This is seen in the absence of a well-thought-out trading strategy, an ingredient that must not be left out if you want to remain profitable in the currency trading markets.
The Stop v3 Envelopes forex trading strategy is designed to give you an idea of where you are in the market and how to get to your preferred destination i.e. take profit.
This approach is adopted to position the currency trader for equity growth.
The added indicators ensures that trends are caught just in time (using the CandleStop and Envelopes indicators) and traders are able to exit at the right price levels (using the BvS v3 alerts).
