Used forex indicators

Alligator forex indicator (26,16,1,). Alligator is actually just a combination of moving averages. We will be looking for alligator to be aligned accordingly to uptrend or downtrend to enter our first trade on candle.

 

Forex strategy rules:

We will be looking for inside bar candle: Candle with its whole range within the body of previous candle. Body of previous candle surpasses the whole range of our inside bar.

After we identify inside bar, first pending order is placed according to alligator.

 

Starting with SELL:

Pending sell order at the low of inside bar: Alligator lines lined according to downtrend, from top to bottom (blue, red, green).

 

 

  • Stop loss is placed at the opposite end of inside bar range, together with pending buy order with double the size of initial order.

  • In case that second order got triggered, we place one more pending sell order at the price of already closed first order.

  • We enter position up to three times to get our winner that will equal inside bar range. Once the third position on isinde bar moves to loss we accept it and move on to next signal.

Starting with BUY:

Pending buy order at the high of inside bar: Alligator lines lined according to uptrend, from top to bottom (green, red, blue).

  • Stop loss is placed at the opposite end of inside bar range, together with pending sell order with double the size of initial order.

  • In case that second order got triggered, we place one more pending buy order at the price of already closed first order.

  • We enter position up to three times to get our winner that will equal inside bar range. Once the third position on inside bar moves to loss we accept it and move on to next signal.

 

Notes: Inside bar as suggested includes partial martingale. We will enter the trade up to a three times. Doubling the size of order each time. If third order moves to loss we will lose 7X the amount of initial position. However, winner can be up to 50X times more frequent.
