      A good trader is expected to have a very sound knowledge of the business and no matter how little the knowledge may be the beginning of any transaction that may lead to profit or loss is placing an order. This is a request to sell or buy a currency or a pair for a profit as it may be applicable.
      There are two different types of order execution- Instant execution and Pending Order.
      Instant Execution- is the type that is executed at the market price or the current price of the pair, commodities or the securities
      Pending order- as the name implies, this is expected to be executed when the pair or the instrument or the securities gets to a pre-defined price in the future
      The understanding of the trader and the situation of the market determine what kind of order he or she may place at any point in time
      However pending orders are very useful when a kind of breakout is being expected and the market is consolidating. The aim is to maximize profit and it is not always an easy task to join the market when the breakout is fresh because there may be very wide spreads or the move may be so fast and enough pressure from different angles may even complicate the issue and be very frustrating
      In cases like this some traders place on the the two sides of the consolidating ends i.e Buy Stop and Sell Stop. With this wherever the market breaks out to, one of the orders will definitely be picked executed and immediately after this is in effect the other will be deleted
      Different types of pending orders are Buy Stop, Buy limit, Sell Stop and Sell limit
      Buy Stop- is an order to buy a pair which is entered at a price above the current offering price. It is expected to be triggered when the price touches through it.
      Buy Limit- is an order to buy a pair which is entered at a price below the current offering price. It is expected to be triggered when the price touches through it.
      Sell Stop- is an order to sell a pair which is entered at a price below the current offering price. It is expected to be triggered when the price touches through it.
      Sell limit- is an order to sell a pair which is entered at a price above the current offering price. It is expected to be triggered when the price touches through it.
      As the market goes on all these order are being placed every second depending on the desire or the understanding of every trader.
      Considering the large number of orders, large number of traders which affect the volume of trades available seemingly make the market crowdy but to say but the bottom line is that as all manner of orders are being placed they are being executed.
      The process is a cycle which invariably point to demand and supply of each currency and pairs and this is being referred to as the flow of orders or order flow
      Anticipating the prices where other traders have pending orders set, particularly important market participants with very large orders.

      What Do You Know About Order Flow as a Forex Trader?
      Order flow is the grand summation of all the orders placed in the market,, all the bullish as well as the bearish orders placed at certain levels for certain pairs in the forex market. Other than the institutional players no regular broker, bank or trader has access to the raw data containing the order flow..

      The order flow manifests as the price action on the forex chart with candlestick patterns suggestive of the order flow taking place at the band background. This price action is what we then study to understand the context of the market and plan our every and exit.

      There's much more top this question, but I'll stop here for now.

      Market with all its uniqueness that I understand as a collection of psychology traders, gamblers, speculators, big dogs and of course the psychology of beginners .. They are mengexsekusi price based on their respective analysis. From here then comes the term order flow or in the free translation is, the flow of transactions. In conclusion: Market = Human psychology.

      if there is order flow, the question arises, the flow where?
      The flow of transactions always involves a simple law, namely: a strong finish of the weak. The weak will trigger a strong entry into the market.

      Where does it happen ??
      All market psychology moves in support and resistance. Some expect S / R hold and some are hoping S / R breaks. And this is where the potential order is waiting to ex execution by his behavior.

      Default ]What Do You Know About Order Flow as a Forex Trader?

      Order flow or transaction flow occurs when someone believes the price of a security will move and then decides to execute an order(transaction) in the market. The individual may want to be aggressive and execute a market order and pay the spread.

      with the order flow trading many believes this is a more risky approach to the market, but to the truth is that yes its risky but its can also bring lot of pips, for example you spot a pin bar candle on the 4 hrs time frame instead of waiting for the confirmation with the next candle ,

      you immediately place buy or sell order,this simply means you are following the flow of the market and this is why it seems risky

      the truth of the matter is that most of us do trade flow but we may not know it until we understand it

      Order flow means the way the people that dominate the market think, the word order is used to connote the amount of money that has been placed in the market at particular levels with the intention of getting triggered as soon as price touches it, this is not known because there is no indicator that can easily tell us the location of where they are packed. So how can we tell where the order flow is, we just need to check whether the bears or the Bulls are taking over the helm of affairs at each point in price movements. The aggregate orders is activated once price hits those levels and starts to go in one direction rapidly.

      Order flow is not a new terminology in the forex market, it has been in existence since the advent of modern financial markets began. order flow comes from the way buy and sell basically, orders will flow into the market from different market participants making trading related decisions like, placing trades, closing trades and taking profits. In all other financial markets order flow trading would be conducted using an indicator called the order book. The order book is a concept that those of us in the forex market may not understand or even have heard of because it is not regularly discussed, but in general world of cryptocurrency, many participants there understand the importance of the order books as it stands as one of the methods of doing research and analysis before trading in the environment, you cannot understand the order flow except you have studied extensive materials on how they work.

      Order flow is a very common term in forex trading. The alternative name of order flow is transaction flow. It occurs when a trader believe that the price of something will go up or down and decides to execute an order in the market. For example when we open a trade we are contributing to the order flow. Another way of contributing to the order flow is to use the limit and stop order. Using the Buy Limit/Stop or Sell Limit/Stop we place a prospective trade with various condition. If the condition get full then our trades get filled and this type of order flow is kind of passive.

      Order flow in forex trading is very much important and if you can get the order flow information in time then it will be a huge benefit for a trader. It will tell you how the order is filling and what's the volume and direction of those orders. Every order flow book is different and for each pair their will be an individual order flow book. Overall, Order flow information is very much important both for the dealer and the retail traders. The problem is that it won't work every time because of some limitation.

      What Do You Know About Order Flow as a Forex Trader?
      Order flow is the basis of Price Action, it is something very basic that is part of being a trader.

      Looking at charts and understanding how price moves means to read orderflow. It is using support levels such as support & resistance, it is seeing channels in price and it is combining PA formations at these locations understanding if there was strength and volume behind a move in price. All of this is orderflow and it is a fundamental part of what it is to be a trader really (as i said).

      When price starts at one level and then goes down to another, it means that there was strength to move that price to that level. The distance it moves and how the bars look is a skill to learn to understand and that is using Orderflow in it's purest form.
