Foreign Exchange Cyclicity & The Role of Central Banks

Foreign Exchange CyclicityRecognizing the macroeconomic cycle and decoding the intentions of central banks are the two key elements of the long-term success of any Forex investor.


Identifying Two (2) Major Types of Forex Currency Cycles


It is important for any Forex investor to take advantage of the cyclical nature of the Foreign Exchange market. There are two main types of cycles in the Foreign Exchange market:

(i) Long-Term Macro Cycles

In the long-run, Forex currencies tend to coordinate with the general macroeconomic environment and follow the interest rate cycle. The monetary goals of Central Banks play a massive role in the macro-cycles of exchange rates.

(ii) Speculative Cycles & Contrarian Trading

In the short-term, Forex currencies tend to follow speculative cycles. These cycles are coordinated by large institutional players that carefully open speculative positions in the derivatives market. These positions create trends, and trends create price breakouts. When price breakouts occur, the market sentiment changes and retail traders join the party by opening late positions. As retail traders enter the market, institutional players close their positions and the trend immediately reverses. This is why being contrarian to the general market sentiment really matters when trading Forex in small timeframes.
