How to Trend Trade Using the AT Ladder Strategy
Chapter: AT Ladder Strategy for All Types of Traders
How to Trend (Position) Trade
One reason we prefer the term episodes to trends is that the forex market is fickle and filled with false starts trying to build momentum. This does not mean the forex market does not have trends but it rarely acts like a textbook developing one.
This is where the AT Ladder Strategy comes in. It uses the same logic for shorter time frames and applies it to longer time frames. My personal preference for trend trading is to use is a four hour chart as it filters out the noise and overcomes a flaw in the daily chart. Note, if charting with MT4 it adds in an extra day at the start of the week between the 5 PM Eastern time zone open and 00:00 GMT
While stops tend to be larger on longer time frames, they are still placed at the most recent AT line in the direction of the episode or trend.
Same basic AT Ladder Strategy logic for all time frames
- Identify the episode
- Identify the strong side to trade
- Identify your stop
- Enter a trade based on that stop
You can also place your stop at the most recent low preceding the latest high in the case of an up episode or the most recent high preceding the latest low in the case of a down episode (substitute AT Ladder Strategy when you hear the term CST in the video).
