Demarker momentum forex strategy

Momentum strategies are working exceptionally well, when combined with trailing stop and oscillators. This forex strategy used both of these tools to its advantage. We will be using two Demarker oscillators. One as a filter and second one as signal. Each trade will be protected by trailing stop. Strategy produced great results in historical data test since 2003.

Used tools and indicators

Demarker trend filter (DEM 150). We apply additional lines in indicators window. Sell below zone (45) and buy above zone (55). Those two lines will separate downtrend from uptrend. The central zone will be uses as a no trade zone, as we consider this to be a market range.

Demarker signal (DEM 21). Demarker with faster calculation period will notify us on price moving rapidly in the direction of trend. Rapidly moving price provides good entry opportunity, especially when using trailing stop as we will do.

SAR parabolic (MAX 0,05, step 0,015): SAR is simple entry filter, it also leads the trailing stop and its widely considered to be one of the best method for trail stop placement.

Trailing stop (extra deviation 60 pips applied). TS is in initially placed on last closed SAR dot. However, most of the time it is necessary to apply extra distance for TS (between the dot and TS itself). This little trick improves the capacity of strategy to follow the trend and brings better results.

Signal candle. Upon the entry, we look for simple and relatively common candle signal. Candle must close either below the low or above the high of previous candle. It also must close in the direction of trend.
