FOREX scalping strategy


Price is traded above EMA 150 (uptrend). Both Stochastic lines (main and signal) fall under 30. We enter on candle close (new candle open). Ideally on bearish candle, or narrow bullish candle. While we enter position Stochastic should still remain under 30.

  • We set our stop loss on EMA level under the price.

  • Take profit: We exit position once Stochastic reaches over 70.


Price is traded under EMA 150 (downtrend). Both Stochastic lines (main and signal) rise above 70. We enter on candle close. Ideally on bullish candle, or narrow bearish candle. On candle close Stochastic still reads over 70.
