A Forex trading trend line is sketched by drawing a straight line above the daily highs for a downward trend and below daily lows for an upward trend. Forex trading trend lines are very fun to use, because you need to use your mental skills in order to recognize the different patterns in the right Forex trading chart. This is not an easy task, as the chart is usually filled with chaotic lines that constantly rise and drop. With the right practice though, you are able to improve your chart skills and recognize trends in no time. Attend each forex trading class that we offer, and you'll actually become a well educated investor.
