Speed Runner Forex Trading Strategy is a trend continuation type of strategy that should be taken exclusively in a trending market environment. Although the market trends only 20% of the time, because day trading is done on the lower timeframes, odds are that there will be smaller trends that could be traded within the day. Although this doesn’t happen every day, trends do occur more often than not in a single day.

To trade a trend continuation entry, we will be making use of three fast Exponential Moving Averages (EMA) – 10, 15 and 20-period EMAs. On a trending market environment, these three EMAs will be stacked and relatively fanned out and will have more slope, while on a ranging market environment, these EMAs will more constrict and flat.

We will then try to eyeball the chart if the market is indeed in a trending market environment. If so, then we will be using the area between the 10 and 15-period EMA as an area where we will anticipate retracements. We will wait for the price to come back in between the EMAs, then close back outside the EMAs on the side of the 10-period EMA, signaling that it is resuming the trend.
