You may have heard the words “forex signals” a few times, but you’re just not sure what they mean. Or perhaps you do know what they mean but you just want to know a bit more. Before we explore forex signals specifically, let’s first talk about what the forex market actually is.

What is the Forex Market?

Imagine if we all lived in a world where there was only one currency? What would that be like? Well it would probably mean that we were all part of one global country. But more specifically, it would mean that there would be no Foreign Exchange Market. This is because there would be no foreign exchange rates, because we would all be using the same currency, so there would be no need for currency trading of any kind.

So, in a world with multiple currencies, we have exchange rates. These are the differences between the currencies when exchanging from one to the other. Currency traders are specifically interested in the differences in exchange rates when buying or selling between particular currencies.

The foreign exchange market has been around for a long time, but in that time it has changed a great deal. The main difference has been technology, as this has had a big impact on how forex traders trade from one currency to the next, and enables them to trade more accurately.

What’s a Forex Signal?

These are alerts that are used by traders, alerting them to take specific actions. Basically they inform the trader of three main things: when to trade, when to stop trading, and when to hold back from trading.

A trader can receive these signals in a number of different ways. For instance, you might get an audio alert in the form of a particular computer sound. This is especially handy for anyone who is away from the computer. Another way of being alerted is visually via a special pop-up message. Traders can also receive text messages or e-mails, which can also be particularly handy for traders who have other things to be getting on with and therefore aren’t always sat at the computer.

Different Forex Signals

We’ve already spoken a bit about the types of signals, which are mainly buy and sell. However, there are a number of other alerts which a trader may want to make use of. For example: OB/OS, which means when a currency has gone past a certain level and has either been overbought or oversold; Volatility, which refers to how uncertain a particular currency pair is; Partial Buy/Sell, which advises you to only buy or sell some of the currency pair, in order to minimize the risk; SL/TP, Stop-loss or take-profit, which means you should either stop losing on a downward trend or stop selling on an upward trend.
