EMA swing forex strategy

This is a swing forex strategy using multiple exponential moving averages, for swing entry and exit, but also as a filter improving the success rate of the forex strategy tremendously.

 

Four EMAs are working in two tandems. One of them is reliably filtering out any trades going against the major trend. Second tandem works very well in finding suitable entry points and then staying in position for as long as necessary.

 

This swing forex strategy is relatively conservative. It was tested on last 3 years of tick data of AUDUSD. Stable lot size was used and strategy proved to be profitable. Moreover, we provide free expert advisor for this forex strategy. Results can be therefore easily tested and strategy modified to fit other currency pairs and timeframes.

 

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.

 

Used forex indicator

  • Exponential moving averages (trend filter). EMA (500,250) are used to filter out the major trend. All swing trades are entered only in the direction of general market flow. This is generalized by faster of the two EMAs trending below EMA500 in downtrend and vice versa for uptrend.

  • Exponential moving averages (swing entry signal). Position is only entered if confirmed by trend filter (500 and 250 EMA). We enter short on first candle after EMA 14 crossed EMA 21 downwards. Long trade is triggered by EMA 14 crossing EMA 21 upwards. Each crossing closes existing trade provided at least one candle manages to close.
