CCI superstar – FOREX strategy

by TFK1: CCI based forex strategy, employing the indicator as a trend filter. Entry signal is based on popular candle formation – morning/evening star. Strategy can be applied across all currency pairs and timeframes. I prefer to use it 15 min chart, due to high frequency of trading signal.

 

Used forex indicators

CCI (commodity channel index) 60. Indicator is used as trend filter. Values above 0 indicate uptrend (upwards momentum). Values below zero will indicate downtrend (downward momentum). This is on of the basic methods of trend identification. It works well.

 

Forex strategy rules

 

BUY

 

 

Our trend filter CCI will be moving above its 0 line. Strongly suggesting that uptrend, or at least upward momentum is present in the market. That gives us best chances with our signal: morning star formation.

Morning star - three candle formation. 1.: Bearish candle. 2.: Flat bullish or bearish candle. 3.: Strong bullish candle closing above the high of first candle. We enter the trade on third candle close, placing stop loss below the low of the formation.

Take profit: Distance equal to signal formation size.

 

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.

 

SELL

Our trend filter CCI will be moving below its 0 line. Strongly suggesting that downtrend, or at least downward momentum is present in the market. That gives us best chances with our signal: evening formation.

Evening star - three candle formation. 1.: bullish candle. 2.:Flat bullish or bearish candle.3.: Strong bearish candle closing below the low of first candle. We enter the trade on third candle close, placing stop loss above the high of the formation.

Take profit: Distance equal to signal formation size.
