Tall candle scalping forex strategy

First thing you should know about this forex strategy, is that it doesn't use stop loss. Instead it relies on its money management (trading with micro lots) and indirect hedging, as it can open up to 100 trades per side. Also, the strategy provides constant balance growth for the accounts. This makes it safer the longer it survives, providing we do not take cash out too often or increase lot size. The system was tested for profitability on high quality historical data since 2003.

Used tools and indicators

Relative strength index (RSI 200) simple trend and range filter. Enter short only below sell below zone, enter long only above buy above zone. With this type of strategy, all you want to do is stay with the trend.

RSI signal (6). Fully utilized potential of the indicator. We wait for it to enter overbought/oversold zone and return back into the neutral. We enter the trade on candle close.

Max open trade per side. 30 in test.

To limit the aggression of the system:

  • Modify max number of opened trades.

  • Increase the calculation period for signal RSI.

  • Increase the size of no trade zone of RSI (distance between sell below and buy above lines).

  • Increase the time frame.

  • Leverage down the lot size.
