If you have been trading Forex for a few years you have seen a transformation in price action. The rangey, mean reverting price action of late comes on the heels of decreasing liquidity coupled with the increasing use of algorithms. In order to be profitable you need to adjust your trading strategy and factor in the Smart Money algorithms.
The SM algos are programmed by quants and as long as someone is programming them they can be outraded. The algos do exactly what they are programmed to do. As a trader your job is to figure out how the algos are affecting price movement and to reposition your trades to intelligently participate in the order flow. As the Forex market changes you must keep up. Being observant and flexible is part of your job as a trader.
