Envelopes day trading FOREX strategy

Envelopes forex indicator is used to establish price tunnel. Price crossing either of tunnel boundaries is traded as standard breakout. We will be using tight stop loss with take profit wider than typical. Additionally RSI forex indicator is used to identify trend and filter out corrections that could lead to price reversal.

 

Strategy works best in 1 hour timeframe but can applied on almost any currency pair in any timeframe. It is based in fundamental market principle of breakout, momentum and trend and therefore it is particularly salable.

 

Used forex indicators:

  • Envelopes forex indicator (period 20) Purpose: Envelopes with slow calculation period is used to draw a relatively stable and adaptable price tunnel, based on average low and high price. Price closing outside of its boundaries will be used as our entry signal. At the same time envelopes indicator will mark levels for our stop loss and take profit targets

  • RSI (relative strength index). RSI with calculation period 60 is used to filter out any other than trending market conditions. To use RSI in such a way using additional line (50) is required.

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.
