ForexDictionary explains Ranging Market

Ranging markets can be frustrating if traders are trying to use trend trading tools. There are distinct strategies, known as channel trading strategies, that forex traders have created for ranging markets. These strategies are similar to scalping, where a trader targets fewer pips on a larger number of trades.
