Forex Killzone Strategy

Pro currency traders are known to wait for an edge in the market and then they enter when a high probability trade comes along. That’s the secret behind their long-term success!

The plan for every trader is to wait for the best possible trade opportunity and then enter the market.

The Forex Killzone strategy searches the market for high probability areas where there’s a clear buy/sell trend. It will always put you on the winning side of the market.

Although, the Killzone strategy is developed for the 1-hour chart, scalpers and day traders can still look to take positions on other time frames, for instance on the 5-minute chart.
