5 min scalping FOREX strategy

This scalping forex strategy takes advantage of micro trend corrections in 5 chart. Entering on one of the smallest possible fractal wave formations means only one thing – ultra tight stop loss. Envelopes forex indicator is used to make sure that the stop loss is tight enough for price to reach a profit before unnecessarily forcing us to exit at loss. This scalping forex strategy takes frequent positions that are entered based on CCI signal confirmed by candle formation and long period CCI trend identification.

 

Strategy works the best in trending conditions without excessive volatility. As with other scalping strategies it is better to stop trading during high volatility as it increases costs of trading tremendously.
