Tunnel bounce forex strategy

Two things may happen, once the price reaches tunnel boundaries. It can either bounce off, or create a breakout. This forex strategy works with the first possibility. One of the main advantages of tunnel bounce approach, is the ability to use extremely tight stop loss. The risk/reward ratio therefore tends to be very interesting. This forex strategy was tested on high quality historical data since 2003 (EURUSD) with positive results.

Used forex tools and indicators

DeMarker (DEM 150). Oscillator with high calculation period is used to separate trending from Ranging market and also uptrend from downtrend. In expert it is possible to adjust the middle range size and thus sensitivity for trend momentum vs. width of the range. In test, we have used more aggressive approach using simply a 0,5 line to separate uptrend from downtrend. All trades must and will be take in the direction of DEMM identified trend.

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.

Envelopes indicator (period 80, deviation 0,3). Envelopes is an indicator used to draw our price tunnel. While in the trend, we will expect the price to bounce rather than break the trend and reverse. Once price moves outside the tunnel only to close back within, we will plcae our order with tight stop loss. Opposite end of a tunnel will become our target profit.
