Fakeout Zone FOREX strategy

Fakeouts are incredibly more common than true breakouts. Generally, they offer amazing and cost effective entry. Often times, tight stop loss can be used and price moves steeply in the direction of the main trend. Therefore, trailing stop can be employed better than with other signals.

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.

This forex strategy uses advanced trailing stop, protecting the profits after each candle that closes in profit. Target profit can therefore outweighs loss up to 20x. Forex strategy was thoroughly tested and we provide xpert advisor trading it.

Strategy was tested on 1H EURUSD data from 01.012013 to 01.012016.

Used indicators:

  • Simple Moving averages 500 and 250. The main purpose of those two indicator is to identify the main trend driving the market. Slow MA trending above fast signalizes downtrend and vice versa for uptrend. Entering the trade in the direction of main trend is extremely important.

  • Bollinger bands (25): BB will draw a volatility sensitive tunnel. Price touching either of its boundaries will be automatically considered to be a fakeout, but it will be traded only in the direction of main trend.

Forex strategy rules


MA 250 trending below MA 500 – downtrend. We will enter short trades only.

Price touches upper BB line. We enter the trade short on candle close placing stop loss 60 pips above the entry. As the position advances in profit we place SL at previous candle high +10 pips.

Profit is taken only when price hits trailing stop.
