Some Forex traders use moving averages to find support and resistance. And they simply buy and sell off of them. You see, when price is above a moving average and price comes down to the moving average… a lot of the time they will buy off of it.

When price is below a moving average and price retraces back up to that moving average. Forex traders will sell off of it. Is this a fluke? Does this happen by chance? Or, is it just dumb luck that this happens? Not at all!
