The actual trading in the Forex market takes place in currency pairs. You either sell on currency for another or buy a currency with another. Each pair is made up of a base and a quote currency. In the EUR/USD pair, the Euro is the base and the US dollar is the quote. Not Using a Stop/Loss Point for every trade- This sounds like it should be a no-brainer, especially if you are using high leverage. Just because you think that the market will do something doesn't necessarily mean that it will. The market can swing very quickly in a direction and if you are on the losing side of the stick, you can quickly watch as your account gets wiped out. In some events, like trading the news, a stop/loss point can be extremely critical as a lot of trading platforms will actually slow making it hard for you to cancel trades. A stop/loss point will help you buffer some of the losses, should you be wrong.

It is not the failed healthcare bill itself that has caused all these market moves. Yes that may well have been the trigger, but investors are worried about the challenges Trump will face in trying to get his other policies passed which may well limit the government's fiscal spending. The worry is that only will this weigh on GDP, but potentially on inflation too. Thus, the Fed may not raise interest rates as aggressively as had been priced in, hence the falls in the dollar.
More promising approach is capitalizing on range contraction. This can be done on most time frames 4H and higher. For example, if daily trading ranges of given currency pair start to get smaller and smaller, it is likely that a larger move will follow. The longer the contraction period, the larger potential move after it. If one has hard time deciding which way to trade, it would be very easy to place a straddle order. Very simple way to implement this strategy is to place the orders just above previous bar's high and under the low. Stop loss could be about half of last bar range, with a target of something like twice the value of stop, or maybe close the position at the end of the time value used. For the weekly bar close would be at the end of the week, daily bars would dictate closing position at the end of the day.
