Morning and evening star with RSI. FOREX strategy

This forex strategy uses morning and evening star forex formations as entry signals. Signal alone is reliable under any circumstances, but RSI is used to identify the trend direction and further increase its accuracy.

It is recommended to trade this forex strategy in 1 hour timeframe. Due to the universal nature of the signal however, it works on any timeframe above 5 minutes.

 

Tight stop loss is used and RSI helps us to determine suitable exit point. Standard 50/50 approach (stop loss equals take profit) is used only for break even stop loss placement.

 

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.
