Morning and evening star - FOREX scalping strategy

These two candle formations have made a lot of traders profitable since the beginning of chart trading. Morning and evening stars are able to immediately provide a lot of information regarding the situation in the market. This reversal formation can immediately tell us:

 

  • Price development was interfered by strong support/resistance.

  • Tight trading range was created in lower timeframes (second narrow candle).

  • Breakout of the range was against the direction of previous price development, resulting in price bouncing from S/R (last signal candle).

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.

 

However, this simple forex formation has one secret to it. You can't get greedy. Therefore, honest 50/50 approach is used.
