Used forex indicators

Trendline drawing (basic)

 

Forex strategy rules

Timeframe above 15 min. Any currency pair.

 

BUY:

For the best results, trade with professional ECN/STP broker with MT4. If you can't trade with profit. Automatically copy the traders that are already profitable.

 

MACD is trending above zero (histogram closes above central line). We will consider this to be a valid uptrend. MACD change before signal completion renders it invalid.

We will be looking for at least three consecutive tops (local highs) in line chart that can be connected by single, downwards sloping trendline. Each top is lower than previous one.

 

 

This action will create downwards sloping resistance. Once we draw the line, we switch to candle graph, to be more accurate with entry, take profit and stop loss.

Breakout candle closing above resistance will serve as an entry signal, Candle must close clearly above resistance. Even if we visualize it as a line, it is more of a zone.

Stop loss is placed below the last signal low within formation (low reached before breakout)

Take profit equals the distance between the highest and lowest point of our signal formation (three connected tops). As with all chart formation, TP needs to be adjusted according to market conditions – this require experience that can be only acquired through trading.

 

SELL:
