How to Use Forex Trading Strategies. Forex trading is an investment strategy where in the investor watches the foreign exchange rates for currencies from various countries and purchases those currencies when they're undervalued. As the exchange rates equal out, the investor exchanges the currency he purchased for a currency at a normal or higher rate, thus making a profit. While forex trading strategies require a strong knowledge of foreign markets and complicated calculations, the steps below will point you in the right direction.
