is there a consensus on the best info/analysis to use to determine the entry point of a trade & whether to buy or sell???
There really is no straight forward answer to this question because we’re all different in trading styles, market views, and what works for us. I think the best first step for you is to learn everything you can about trading mechanics and techniques, risk management, what moves the forex markets, and trading psychology.
Through this learning process you will begin to develop a trading plan and thus the best way for you to decided when to enter and exit trades.
I hope this helps and of course we will all be here to help if you have any further questions
