I'd appreciate if forex traders could share their favourite basis or two for buying a currency pair at a particular point in time.
E.g., what is your favourite piece of news (I DON'T mean exceptional things like shorting USD after 9/11 tragedy)? Best candlestick formation to indicate upcoming reversal of trend? If using Linuxtroll-style WMA scalping, what is your best indication of clear up or clear down?
In other words what set of criteria say to you, "this is a sure thing - I gotta go long/short NOWWW"? (Obviously nothing is REALLY a sure thing, I know.) What entry type has repeatedly seen you come out ahead (the "positive expectancy" many refer to on this forum)?
