ADX confirmed testing - FOREX strategy

Simple forex strategy looking for a test formation confirmed by ADX (average directional movement index). Test formation reflects the effort of market makers to gauge the interest of wide public in trend continuation. Any strength response to this blatant money making maneuver can be considered to be a strong trend continuation signal.

 

This forex strategy trades this forex formation with the assistance of ADX to identify trend and be able to establish a profit target, as test alone doesn't provide any information on target profit.

 

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.
