Direct scalping forex strategy

Following setup, might be the cornerstone for a large number of trading systems. It consists of two inseparable parts. First, we combine four exponential moving averages, to identify the trend. Four different calculation periods are used to avoid entering the market at trend reversals. Secondly we use RSI oscillator, with attention to detail. Making sure we enter the trade on completed signal and on candle close.

Used tools and indicators

Following settings were used to test the system in 1H chart of EURUSD (tick data since 2003)

Exponential moving averages (EMA first tandem 600,300, second tandem 250,100). EMAs are working in two pairs to identify trend with high level of competency. This setup is actually widely used by professional independent traders and institutional traders alike. It is simple and as accurate as it gets in forex. To enter the trade both pairs must unanimously confirm the trend. We have not tested another settings for any of 4 EMAs and there is sure a lot of room for improvement of this trading system.

Relative strength index (RSI 3) RSI will tell us when to enter the trade. We will be looking for a good price for entry based on full RSI signal. RSI must return back to neutral, after visiting overbought oversold zone.

Max open trades: Strategy allows opening more than one trade per direction at the same time.
