ADX Scalping FOREX strategy

ADX forex indicator is useful tool for determining trend direction and its strength (momentum). This scalping forex strategy employs it, together with RSI to find suitable scalping entry in the direction of market flow – trend.

 

Tight stop loss is placed on logical price levels and offers great risk reward ratio with possibility of adding to the winner and riding a trend on lower timeframes. Strategy works very well in 15 minutes timeframe, but can be also used in 5 min chart of any major forex instrument.

 

Used forex indicators:

  • ADX (average directional movement index) 50. ADX is used to effectively filter out trades that would go against general flow of the market. Thanks to ADX we will be trading on the right side of the market most of the time. Additional 15 line is added in indicators window.

  • RSI (relative strength index) 2. Fast RSI is used to mark the entry, that is short and rapid swing against the direction of major trend. Entry is further based on following candle that will confirm general trend direction

Strategy is traded in 15 min chart of any major currency pair.

 

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.
