By drawing the boxes, we are able to predict where price might head to on the next box after the breakout.And besides that, we can just trade inside the box just like this:

Forex trading strategies: Look at the first red arrow in the chart above. That indicates the marking of the low of the box.So we can expect the next time price reaches the area. We can buy at the area. Which is marked by the white arrow on the second time.

The same follows on the 2nd box.

The red arrow pointing down marks the high of the blue box. So the next time price reaches the high. We can sell it off immediately (as marked by the white arrow)

And we are seeing that happening right now in the latest blue box. Price has hit the bottom of the blue box which has now retraced back up. Therefore we can place a buy order right at the bottom of the blue box to profit from this.

Hi Ezekiel,

I want to ask what you would suggest in regards to “box” trading. Are there any indicators we should use to confirm that the pair is in consolidation? are there any other factors to consider?

Thanks buddy, you have helped so much already!



No indicators. but what you can do is to look at the past bar high and low. if the next time price reaches the high or low and gets rejected by it. Good chance you might have a consolidation. Consolidation are formed with quite a couple of bars. You can backtest your charts to train your eye.
