The 3 Little Pigs Trading Strategy is a popular, multiple-timeframe forex trading strategy that is used by thousands of traders all over the world.
In this Video Course, you’ll learn exactly how you too can use it to get maximum results in your forex trading.
So what are the 3 Little Pigs, and what have they got to do with the forex market?
Well, as you may know, markets tend to move in trends. They tend to move in roughly the same direction for a prolonged period of time.
And trends = excellent trading opportunities
The 3 Little Pigs Trading Strategy is designed to take full advantage of those trading opportunities.
In the strategy, each Pig represents:
Now, if you're familiar with trading, you’re almost sure to have heard the phrase…
“The trend is your friend”
If you haven’t heard that before, it basically means that it’s easier to trade markets in the direction of the trend.
And when you think about it, trading with the trend makes perfect sense.
Trading in the direction of the trend is like running with the wind at your back - it just makes things easier.
Sounds simple, right?
But here’s the problem...
Although trend trading sounds logical, many traders really struggle to do it profitably.
Even though it sounds simple, it’s actually quite easy to get confused.
If you’ve traded trends before, you’re likely to have run into problems like:
No wonder some traders get baffled!
Confusion sets in.
You start getting bad entries, cutting winning trades too soon, letting losing trades get big, and worst of all, missing trends altogether.
And of course…you lose money.
You start to wonder:
Most people just give up and decide to try something else.
But that’s a mistake - a big mistake.
Because trend trading works. Some of the biggest, most successful traders in the world are huge fans of trend-trading.
Larry Hite is a hugely successful fund managers, and one of Jack Schwager's famous Market Wizards. He says:
"If you diversify, control your risk, and go with the trend, it just has to work"
- Larry Hite
So why is it that big traders can use trends to make huge sums of money, but the little guy seems to fail miserably?
How can you make forex trend-trading work for you?
Well, what you need is a straight-forward trend-trading strategy to guide you.
And that’s exactly where the 3 Little Pigs Forex Trading Strategy comes in!
You need a Trading Plan
The 3 Little Pigs Trading Strategy provides a clear plan for trading in the direction of the trend in the forex markets.
And it does that by using multiple timeframes to analyse trends and find great trading opportunities.
Here’s an example of how it works:
These steps are all very clear and simple to follow. They are designed to be straightforward and to limit any chance of you making a mistake.
When you follow the steps correctly, you will have a trade that is in the direction of the long, medium and short-term trends.
There are 2 very important benefits that you’ll experience by trading like this:
These are very important, so let’s look at both of them in turn.
The Truth: How many trades will be winners?
Before starting to trade a particular forex strategy, most traders want to know how often it produces winning trades.
The truth about the 3 Little Pigs Trading Strategy is that not all of its trades are winners.
In fact, in certain markets you might find that less than 50% of your trades are profitable.
If that sound like a big problem, it shouldn’t!
Because if you follow the rules, you’ll find that most often your winning trades will be bigger than your losing trades.
Let’s use the results from the Babypips.com independent evaluation as an example:
So, even though they had more losing trades than winners, the net result is that they still ended up with a profit.
That profit was 1,158 pips (+28.65%).
To save you doing the sums: even if they had only had only won 30% of their trades, they still would have been profitable overall.
Does that sound achievable?
Of course it does!
Every single trading strategy needs a good...
...risk versus reward ratio.
This is why it’s important to make sure that your winning trades are bigger than your losing trades. This is what's known as a good "risk versus reward ratio".
And it’s crucial to the success of any trading strategy.
The 3 Little Pigs Trading Strategy targets a positive risk versus reward ratio on its trades, and that's part of the reason why it's so popular with forex traders all over the world.
Let’s explain how it does this:
Do you see how this works?
That means your profitable trades (reward) can sometimes be many times bigger than your losing trades (risk).
So THAT'S why the professionals are so fond of trend-trading strategies!
Paul Tudor Jones is probably one of the most successful traders ever. Here's what he has to say on risk versus reward:
“I’m looking for 5:1 (risk /reward). Five to one means I’m risking one dollar to make five. What five to one does is allow you to have a hit ratio of 20%. I can actually be a complete imbecile. I can be wrong 80% of the time, and I’m still not going to lose.”
- Paul Tudor Jones II

It is perfectly possible to trade the 3 Little Pigs Trading Strategy with the information in the eBook and this Video Course alone.
Many traders do not use the software and they are very successful.
But I get a lot of requests about trading signals, and how I analyse a lot of charts in a short period of time. Some traders just want additional comfort that the trade they are taking is a valid signal, and other people just want to be able to speed up their analysis so that they can get on with their day.
The 3 Little Pigs MT4 Indicator and the 3 Little Pigs MT4 Scanner are software tools that I had professionally coded for myself. The software allows me to analyse more markets without having to open up and scroll through lots of charts, and it alerts me to new signals when they are triggered, so I can spend less time in front of my trading screen.
After many requests, I made the software available to Forex Useful members and it has proved to be very popular.

Hi, I'm Jon McFarlane, and welcome to this Video Course.
I'm a private investor and trader. I've been managing my own capital for over 20 years.
During that time, I've encountered virtually every single type of trading system and strategy that exists. I've tested everything from short-term scalping in the forex markets to longer term investing in the equity markets.
Now, I just focus on just a couple of solid, robust trading strategies that have worked very well for me.
In 2013 I founded Forex Useful. The mission of Forex Useful is to provide realistic and honest information about forex trading to its members.
Forex trading represents a fantastic opportunity for people who want to make some money from the financial markets. But there is also a lot of hyped up and misleading information about forex trading out there too.
Forex Useful tries to strip away the hype from forex trading and focus on the facts. We tell it how it is: good or bad!
We have 3 trading strategies that we use on the site: I trade the 3 Little Pigs Multiple-Timeframe Strategy and a Pivot Points Strategy, and Nigel Price trades using a price action based strategy called the PAST Strategy.
No trading strategy is perfect. But we are very committed to helping our members understand why these strategies work, and helping them to develop their forex trading in a positive direction.
Thanks for reading, and I'm looking forward to helping you learn about forex trading!
