4 Forex Signals/Setups 0 Crypto

If you are looking for Free Forex trading signals and setups every week, this is the page to bookmark.

You can find the setups below and they are posted every week, by Sunday evening.

I don’t publish daily Forex signals because my experience (and many others) is that swing trading Forex offers the most bang for your buck.

Many have said these are the best Forex signals because there is a learning component to the posted setups and the recap.

I use what has proven to work in Forex trading:  mean reversion and momentum-based setups.  There is an actual edge in using these two methods that can be quantified.

There is an edge in mean reversion and momentum trades and that is where I will continue to focus.  As you’ve seen, you can short alt currencies and Bitcoin in the right context but most traders would be better to continue with the trend.

These are daily price charts

Some things to help you understand the charts:

  • Consolidations are considered to be pullbacks and ranges on the posted charts.
  • Ranges and pullbacks are treated differently in terms of trading them
  • The trend line can be used for entry on the break but I do not follow them for support or resistance
  • Horizontal support and resistance are pivots areas
  • Momentum thrust is a sharp move in price
  • Basing is when the price is ranging sideways – usually used to explain price action after a momentum move
  • Basing at highs or lows of the momentum move are continuation patterns
  • Failure tests are thrusts up or down through a level and immediate reclaim of previous price zone
  • I prefer to see pullbacks with low momentum in the corrective phase

As always, all of these free Forex and cryptocurrency setups are based on price action, price structure and may result in trading opportunities.

These setups use technical analysis to determine if a chart is set up for a potential trade.

As the Forex charts are set up when the market is closed on the weekend, the price may evolve differently than anticipated.

It is impossible to give entry and exit prices because these are not updated on a daily basis.  As price evolves, so does the entry.

The beauty of price action Forex trading/cryptocurrency trading like this is you are not waiting for a lagging technical indicator to flash an entry signal.  You can see, in advance, the setup that we are looking to take advantage of.

  • We are reactive to price action in these areas
  • We do not attempt to forecast although an idea can be helpful
  • Don’t get blinded by your opinion
  • Price rules your opinion

While some of you may choose to scalp or day trade the foreign exchange market with these free setups, please note they are designed for a swing trading approach.  Lower time frames may also present opportunities using these charts for context.

Please be fully aware of your overall “risk appetite” when it comes to your trading account and your Forex broker margin rules.

Note that all recaps are best-case scenarios in terms of totals.  Every trader will have different entry and exit points and the recaps show potential and not necessarily totals obtained by the author.  The author does trade the posted setups and others dependent on evolving price action.

Forecasts presented in this section only reflect the author’s private opinion and should not be considered as guidance for trading. This site bears no responsibility for trading results based on trading recommendations described in these analytical reviews.  You must understand Bitcoin and cryptocurrency trading in general before trading that market.

April 19- April 24

Price had reactions in each of our noted zones this past week.  Using the four hour chart for earlier entries generally gives us great trades. 830 pips potential this past week with the same clear cut entries we use every week.  This week was a great example of a “head and shoulder” entry we like to use.  The right shoulder rejects around the same level as the left shoulder.  We don’t wait for neckline breaks but watch price on the four hour chart.  Trend line breaks and failure tests are the trigger.

Not a fan of the charts this week for daily chart traders.









April 12 – April 17

How did these free setups do?

AUDJPY – We were in a complex correction as thought as price stalled at our zone.  The entry off the four hour is after price fails to make a higher high and actually fails at the high prior to the higher high.  I do like this type of entry.  Think of a double top but getting in when the right shoulder shows failure.  145 pips to lows.

AUDNZD – Price blew through our zone

EURAUD – Price came to our zone, put in a bounce followed by higher low.  Break of high is entry for 187 pips.

GBPAUD – Nice failure test off of lows and momentum candle steps in.  259 pips upside.

GBPCHF – Price continued to base at highs

GBPUSD – Trend line break entry leads to 100 pips downside as price broke our zone and failed in the pullback.

NZDUSD – Another pair that we believed was in a complex correction looking short.  140 pips downside off the “head and shoulder” entry.

1180 pips potential last week.  Some of the setups sat in ranges while others continued slow drifts.  The entry of these trades were off the four hour chart.  Remember, simple trend line breaks or range breakouts on lower time frames are entries into higher time frame setups.

Keep in mind that your risk is based off the setup time frame and not the entry time frame.

  1. Hi S.D,
    Wonderful blog, and contents. Thanks
    But, I have been having issues viewing weekly trade updates. I follow the link from my email, but the images or, and contents are blur. In fact, I havent been able to go through any weekly trade updates.

    How do I resolve this?

  2. Hey SD so I’ve been trying to figure out a routine and system that works for me for awhile now and I’m only focusing on a few select pairs before moving on to others and limiting myself to micro lots, i use daily and weekly key levels and daily levels to help me in my technical analysis I place all my trades on intra day based on what price is doing on the daily and weekly and I use other factors to help me to determine entry point swing highs swing lows, emas , support and resistance and a combination of other factors to decide my entry take profit and stops, even with all that going on it’s really hard to catch the big break outs cause where I am it happens at like 1 am and I’m asleep by the time I’ve tried the daily high low strategy and that never really seems to work out because they usually have a fake out before the real break out begins, is there something’s that I could be missing or some other areas I could look at to make my trading easier because I would like to figure out a way to determine if price will continue trending on daily charts and not having to fight myself to wake up at 1 am because I have a full time job but I’m trying make my way to full time trader .

    Sounds like you have a lot going on to determine setups. Any way you can simplify your approach? Does your approach have an edge? How do you know what a key level is? Why the need for so much supporting (possibly or not even relevant) variables? You can’t micromanage your entry price and frankly, a zone of price is more realistic.
    If you are getting faked out, my guess is your stop is too close. I use ATR stops. Generally 2X ATR. I don’t recall ever being faked out.

  3. SD, Love the analysis, how did you do on the EUR/AUD Short?

    Thanks. Keeping it simple. How did I do? This is not that type of site. I will occasionally post about a trade if there is a learning aspect to it but I am not into wagging.

  4. SD
    Just found your site, got to be one of the best PA sites and education out there – I will definitely spent some time here – i am tring to find an answer to my question of, what time frame are you showing for your analysis – when i look at the chart i cannot determine what TF your showing

    Thanks for the words. As mentioned in the preamble before the setup charts, these are daily price charts.

  5. Compliments of the season SD.- Last week’s EURUSD, in your feedback, you say there was 42 pips before price crashed. I think I missed the entry. Where was the entry?

    Right back at you. One day pullback on Jan 14. Drop to four hour chart, momentum off lows with basing at high of momentum. Enter in base when price breaks low of base and recovers.

  6. You are so kind and help many people. I m greatful with your instructions and explained very clearly. Most of people charge the free to teach but you don’t. I m glad to know your website
    I will recommend to all my friends
    Million thanks to you
    Dong from UK

  7. Whats going on with your blog? Have you sold your blog because the signals are ghosted and not delivered to my email anymore. Can’t get your signals on your website either. Is it a paid service now?

    1. Hey Gert. The emails are going out and it is ghosted but open when the email is entered. It is “cookied” so once you add your email, you should be able to access all the time. Paid? Never happen. This will always be free.

  8. Thanks for assisting traders, please what is the correct input to use for MACD and EMA crossing
    There is no correct setting for any indicator. There are many strategies using MACD and EMA on this blog.

  9. Hi Shane.
    Amazing blog – thanks for doing this. 🙂
    I have a question regarding this weeks setups. Am I right assuming several of your setups are daily failure tests of highs? Either after a strong move / or a failure test of a clear high on the chart? Or am I missing some context?
    You are not missing anything. That would then make them counter trend which generally means quicker taking profits. Keep in mind that as price evolves during the week, outlook on type of trade to take can change. The key is that every setup, even if price evolves into something else during the week, will use the exact trading techniques that are always used here. 🙂

  10. Hi SD, I hope I find you well. This week’s GBPJPY refers. What do we need to see on the chart in order to recognize price acceptance?
    Thanks in advance.
    Give me your thoughts

    1. Hi SD – Thanks for your response but I think you made an error because the CADJPY did not have a trendline. Please have a look again.
      No, I did not make an error. Yes, there is a trendline. You just have not defined what makes a trendline to you. You do you. I will do me. Thanks.

      1. SD – I meant when you sent the setup there was no trendline. So in such cases we can draw our own trendlines on the four hour so that we can get an entry.
        Thanks once again.
        Breaks of trendlines on lower time frames are triggers into a large time frame pattern (like how we can use a lower time frame range breakout to enter a higher timeframe pullback). They highlight a change of rhythm in the market. Sorry, I thought you said there was no trendline that could be drawn. 🙂

  11. Please,is it important to consider the weekly and monthly time frames when analysing?
    How would you consider them? What would you do differently? What information would you be looking for?

    1. When triangles break, they may pause but generally don’t retrace. If you fade momentum moves as a rule after triangles break, it is not a wise choice. Pent up energy in the market.

  12. SD – I hope I find you well. Last weeks setups did not have trend lines on the GBPUSD and GBPJPY and in your comments after the week you mention of trend line break. Was the lesson about us drawing our own trend lines? Because after the trend line breaks the setups did ok.

  13. GBP?JPY -Monday night, do you still believe I should go long now for another long upswing.
    Thanks much.
    I believe that you should take these setups and design your own approach to trading them. We are very careful to not give advice involving you or anybody else putting on risk.

  14. SD, I just found your site, I’m new to forex trading, and still learning and I have a few questions. Would there be a place I could contact you (by email for example), just to clear up a few simple questions I have.

    Thanks for this great resource btw, I’m learning a lot reading through it all.

    1. Nope. I like to use the four hour chart on trend line entries (remember that I don’t use trend lines for setups…breaks are a trigger) and support/resistance levels. I use daily a lot simply because I can afford the risk profiles. But no, use four hour for entries because you can see the imbalance of buyers and sellers better if you are not able to infer from the daily.

  15. S. D. This makes sense now. Last week I entered a trade on the EURGBP on the four hour chart. On the four hour chart it looked as if price had gone completely over the trend line and was just waiting for follow up and on the daily price had just gone a bit over the trend line. There was no follow up of price downwards and hence I lost the trade.

        1. I have written a few times that when you see price move from one extreme to another, like that momentum candlestick that wiped out 60 hours of previous trading gains, expect a reaction against the move. It’s no different than a market in a range and price running from resistance right through support….that is not a trade to take.

  16. S.D. Thanks for the commentary you add after every week. I still get confused as to when to use the four hour and the daily candles for entry. I don’t know how you can make it simpler for me to understand.

    1. No problem…..use the four hour chart side by side with the daily chart. Don’t look for setups on the four hour, just look for signs that the desired direction on the daily is setting up. Quick example….pullback trade on the daily chart. Drop to a four hour chart to see price resuming direction—a range breakout for example. How about a daily chart support holding or failing trading? Looking long, look for momentum or failure test of lows. Make sense?
