measuring a move

Definition

Forex

  • The process that a technical analyst goes through when determining the length of a movement occurring in an asset's price action. Forex traders often find that measuring a move which is corrective in nature will allow them to project a second move of equal magnitude in the same direction of the initial move from the maximum point of the initial move's subsequent correction.
