Morning / evening star with bollinger bands. FOREX strategy

This pattern based forex strategy uses morning and evening star chart patterns as entry signal. Additionally, bollinger bands are used to gain the timing advantage. Trend identification is not required as signal opposing the trend is extremely rare.

 

Morning/evening star signalizes price encountering massive resistance in its further movement and bounce becomes very likely. Using this signal together with high/low position of price in BB tunnel improves signal accuracy and precision.

 

Trading with this signal and this setup, will bring mostly positions that will move immediately into the green numbers without any resistance.

Forex strategy rules

 

BUY:

We will be looking for morning star char formation crossing bottom BB line to enter the trade long.

Morning star formation consists of three candles. 

 

1. Bearish candle hitting the support in form of bottom BB band.

2. Extremely narrow, typically bearish candle with tall downward wick (at least twice the size of candle body). There might be a gap between 1. And 2. Candle (it improves the signal reliability).

3. Tall bullish candle, closing above the open of first formation candle.

We enter the trade long on 3.(bullish) candle close. Stop loss is placed one pip below the formation low.

Take profit: Double the size of formation (measured from entry to its low)
