    Is it even possible? You know, to stare at those flashing square boxes and see the "tape" and make a decision?
     
  2. forex is a over-the-counter market and would be almost impossible to tape read.

    you could maybe watch the speed of the quotes to get a idea of momentum

    Some platforms post the last "Bid" in the Times & Sales window, your other option is to watch the futures trade, assuming you are trading a major.

    Do you have a chart?
