by TFK1: Today I would like to share a strategy that, works as base for some of my trading systems. Its main advantage is highly accurate entry, effectively filtering out signals that might appear at the trend end. Strategy is easy to trade and there are no subjective factors in play. Base for this strategy is entry based on price crossing the envelopes line (double confirmed) and position of envelopes indicator in relationship with moving averages.
Used forex indicators
Envelopes:Period 30, deviation 0,1. Price crossing both of the lines will create entry signal.
Exponential Moving average : Period:100 - trend filter.
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.
