Two separate MACD indicators will be used to identify both major trend and current trend. After we identify trend, another oscillator - RSI will be used to find our entry. Therefore, entry will always be in the direction of main trend.
To establish our targets for profit and loss, advanced trailing stop will be applied, protecting position gains after each closed candle.

Used forex indicators
MACD (moving average convergence divergence) 520,250 and 100,50. Combination of two MACD works very well in our chose currency pair (EURUSD) and timeframe (1H). Fundamentally, slow MACD distinguishes the major trend while faster MACD helps us to react to reversals and confirms the trend at the entry. Trigger line will not be included in our consideration.
RSI (relative strength index) RSI with period 7 is used to find entry. We will be buying low – at 30 line and selling high at 70 line.
