10 Minute Trader Forex Countertrend Strategy

Trading in the currency market can be a fairly difficult task depending on the strategy that you deploy in generating profits.

It becomes even more strenuous when considering the amount of time needed to set things up, as well as the ever present complex indicators.

However, the 10 Minute Trader Forex Countertrend strategy is a pretty modest strategy that only requires you to use three indicators.
