Most of us are familiar with market consolidations. What happens is that at any given time frame, at some point, the market is directionless. This means that there is sideways movement instead of trending market action. The sideways movement can be an indication that the market is catching it's breath in order to A) continue the trend, or B) reverse from its original direction.
The time frame we use for this system is a one hour bar chart. I have found that this time frame is the best for Fx Blaster trades. I don’t like trading this system on smaller time frames simply because there is too much noise and many fake moves; in other words, the market whipsaws causing the trader to experience unnecessary losses.
