2. One truth you should also take note, is that the forex market will sometimes, but not always follow the set of rules that have been put down. A rule, in this case, contains a strategy that is put in place, to help determine when to enter or exit a trade.
3. Despite having done extensive research, the market can still remain high or low for an unreasonable period. It is therefore important to trade what you see, and not have high expectations on the trade you have your eyes on.
