Used tools and indicators

DeMarker (150). Central zone is drawn in the center of DeM indicator. High calculation period of 150 is used. We will be looking for DEM to trend outside of central (neutral) zone. The central zone will be considered an indication of ranging market unsuitable for our entry. Adjust the buy above/ sell below zone parameters to modify this zone.

 

Bollinger bands (period 60, deviation 2, target BB deviation 8 - omitted in test). This indicator is a key element in this forex strategy. It provides us with primary signal. Trailing stop placement and higher deviation BB are used also for profit target. You can manipulate both signal BB period/deviation and BB target deviation. Profit target was too wide to be triggered in test, however it is suitable to be used in lower time frames and especially in scalping situation.

 

Trailing stop loss (+30 pips): Trailing stop is used to protect any profits and is also used as a stop loss upon position entry. Additional distance can be applied to move it further from the current price.
