The good price is understood as price at the break (min,max) of a price wave. In other words, strategy goes for tops and bottoms. It does so methodically.
One of the ways to identify those tops and bottoms is to use a tunnel. Strategy manages to use BB to identify those price points with high accuracy.
The system was tested on high quality historical data on 1H EURUSD (15 min chart doesn't provide as high of an accuracy and test is more time consuming). Following setting have been used.

MACD Moving average convergence divergence (500,250 and 250,100). We will use two independent MACD histograms. The goal is to identify major trend and confirm it by more recent trend development. This helps to avoid market reversals. We will be looking for entry with confluence with both MACD trends. To use it as a scalping forex strategy requires adjusting the periods of both MACD filters upwards.
Bollinger bands (BB period 40, deviation 2). We will be looking for price closing outside of BB tunnel only to close back within with next candle. We enter the trade once the price closes in the tunnel looking for a bounce in the direction of trend.
Break even function (40 pips). After strategy reaches predefined profit, stop loss is placed at the price of entry point.
