Simple Accelerator FOREX strategy

Trigger sensitivity is one of the keys to successful forex trading. This forex strategy uses accelerator entry signal together with default setting MACD that is proven to work best in 1 H timeframe of major currency pairs.

 

Accelerator oscillator does a good job of signalizing the entry only at the end of a correction. Most of the times position moves almost immediately in profit. Precise timing ensures that you avoid entering the trade before correction exhaustion, which is the most suitable entry most of the time.

MACD helps us to filter out entries against the current price momentum. Default settings of MACD indicator are with relatively fast calculation period, therefore it is able to adapt rapidly to changing market conditions

Strategy is traded in Hour timeframe of any currency pair.
