Improved RSI momentum forex strategy

Market Momentum provides a great entry opportunity. Especially so, if we decide to use trailing stop. The trading system that will be revealed in following paragraphs, uses four indicators to establish trend and momentum. It enters the trade aggressively, using multiple entry option with trailing stop applied on each trade. This results in steady and solid performance during our historicala data trial since 2003.

Used tools and indicators

Exponential moving averages (EMAs 500,250). Slow and fast EMA are used to identify a trend. We enter only with confluence with the trend. This will be our primary filter

RSI secondary filter (200). RSI with high calculation period is used as a combination of long term momentum and trend filter. We will also use the ability of RSI to filter out the range, by applying sell below 45, buy above 55 zone in the middle of indicators window.

RSI signal (RSI period 21). Immediate momentum signal. We wait for signal candle close to enter the trade.

Signal candle (1-150 pips)Confirmation of the momentum. Candle with defined min/max range closing in the direction of trend.

SAR parabolic (step 0,02, max 0,05) each entry must also be confirmed by SAR parabolic.

SAR parabolic trailing stop: After the entry we place trailing stop at last closed SAR dot + (extra deviation 80 pips). It is adjusted with each following sar dot, only in the direction of profitable trade. Trailing stop will remain the only method of how to close the trade.

MAX open trades (10 in test): Strategy can get aggressive by increasing the number of max open trade per side simultaneously. When increasing this input, adjust the lot size accordingly.

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.
