Trying to trade overbought and oversold zones with CCI while using tight stop loss, immediately after indicator reaches the zone, is one of the most terrible forex strategies ever. However, sometimes it is possible to reverse some of the losing forex strategies and turn them into winners. This is one of them.
Strategy is based on assumption that once the overbought oversold zone is reached, price will not reverse immediately. For CCI to reach either of those zones substantial price momentum is necessary. We will use this momentum to enter in the direction of CCI extreme.
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.
We will buy immediately after indicator surpasses 100 zone and sell immediately after it falls below -100.
Either one of those events can mark beginning of a new trend, this forex strategy however goes for a single candle of profit.

CCI will cross -100 line downwards, entering into the oversold zone. Simultaneously to CCI crossing the -100 line, bearish candle will be drawn and closed. This is usually strong downwards candle. We will enter the trade immediately on its close. Meanwhile, CCI cannot rise back above - 100 zone.
