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.

April 5 – April 10
This past week had none of the price moves we’ve seen over the previous weeks. That is to be expected. Some of the setups played out but even off the four hour chart, there was no trigger to trade against. 368 pips was all that was available this past week.
We have a few range plays this week in markets that have had a larger move. Some moves are plotting small range candlesticks. These may hold structure due the uncertainly in the world right now.
March 29 – April 3 2020
How did these do?
AUDCHF – The range continued throughout the week.
AUDJPY – As noted, watching for a short from the triangle. Down on the four hour chart, 8 hours (2 bars) of testing highs and fail is a failure test. 218 downside potential
EURAUD – Price ranged
EURGBP – Was looking long and price just dripped to the downside. Ended in our marked off zone end of week.
EURNZD – Range
GBPCHF – Was looking short knowing price could still run upside. No trade
GBPJPY – Range
GBPUSD – We got the range I was looking for to consider shorting against. Ascending triangle failed and price break of bottom of the up sloping trend line is the entry. 150 potential downside
NZDUSD – Got the short that was being looked for but there was no entry.
This past week saw the USD lose some of its luster which is to be expected after the previous weeks moves. Having your bias in one direction never means ignoring the evolution of the week. As an example, failure for further upside ( USDJPY) opens the door to the opposite move. Failure of one thing to happen should have traders plotting out other scenarios.
Even then, you did entry triggers. For most of these, trend line breaks from the pattern are good entries (we are not trading the trend line itself). All in all, 1230 potential pips.
