Coming Up With a Simple Indices Trading Strategy

For any trader wanting to be profitable in the long term indices trading the best way to do this is to come up with a simple indices trading strategy to follow when trading the stock indexes trading market. A simple indices trading strategy will have simple rules that will be easier to follow when the online stock indexes market.

Many indices traders will use complex indices trading systems that will have many indices trading rules that are hard to follow when stock indices market and at some point these traders realize that these complicated indices trading systems and methods are not the best when it comes to trading with them in the stock indexes trading market because these systems have complicated rules that are hard to follow when trading the fast moving market of stock indexes trading.

Many beginner indices traders try to come up with complicated indices trading systems that use many different indicators to analyze the stock indexes trading market. Instead of using two or three indicator to come up with their indicator based trading method traders will use five or more indicators which make their indices trading system very complicated. Generating trading signals will mean waiting for the five indicators to give the same signal and sometimes because there are too many indicators some indicator may give opposite trading signals at the same time therefore confusing the indices trader even more on what direction of trade they should take when opening a trade transaction.

Because the stock indexes trading market is a fast moving market and the stock indexes trading market moves are volatile it is best that traders do not trade with a very complicated trading method. Instead a indices trader should try and come up with a indices trading system that will identify indices trends early enough and at the same time have a way of confirming these trading signals so as to eliminate trading whipsaws. As long as a indices trading system can accomplish this then the indices trading system will give good trading signals most of the time. But instead most indices traders want to put more and more indicators on their indices trading systems to confirm a trading signal that is generated when only one indicator is required to confirm the trading signal. By putting too many indicators a indices trader can get conflicting trading signals because the chance of one indicator giving an opposite trading signal to other indicators is very high, therefore meaning that instead of getting the confirmation signal that a indices trader is looking for a indices trader might get more confusion instead.

For this reason it is best as a indices trader to come up with a simple trading strategy with fewer trading rules that will be easier to follow when trading.

The first thing that a indices trader needs to determine before opening any trade is the indices trend of the stock indexes trading market. The indices trend of a market is the general direction that the stock indexes trading market is moving towards. When stock indices prices starts to move in one direction it will keep moving in that direction for some time because of the momentum that the direction will have. This momentum will result in a market trend. The indices trend is the most reliable method that can be used to trade indices. In general traders will find it is to make money when the stock indexes trading market moves up and also when the stock indexes trading market moves down, but they will find it very hard to make money if the stock indexes trading market is moving nowhere.

What this means is that traders should first determine if the stock indexes trading market is moving up or down before deciding to trade. If the stock indexes trading market is moving up a indices trader can open trades in that direction and if the stock indexes trading market is moving down a indices trader can then open stock indexes trades in that direction. But if the stock indexes trading market is not moving in any particular direction and the indices prices are consolidating then a indices trader should not open any trades and should stay on the sidelines.

After determining if there is a indices trend or not a indices trader can then use their stock indexes trading system to determine when to open a trade.

The indices trading system should therefore not be too complicated to follow its trading rules.

The task that traders should focus on is determining the current market indices trend whether the stock indexes trading market indices trend is up or down and this is what will determine the profitability of the strategy that a indices trader is using.


There are many method of determining a indices trend most of which are covered in this website on the indices trading strategies section of this website. Indices traders wanting to learn these strategies can go to the indices trading strategies section and do more research on which strategies are used to determine market trends.

After researching and deciding which method or strategy is best for them a indices trader can then use that strategy to come up with their own simple trading method or system that has simple rules that will be easy to follow when trading the online stock indexes market.
