This forex strategy uses candle in the direction of trend as momentum indicator. Even though take profit is often times smaller than possible loss, winning trades are more frequent. Rules of the strategy are simple and they leave very little space for hesitation. With this system, you will be not looking for only best trades, but simply trade at every opportunity relying on slight statistical edge.

 

The edge: In trend, it is more likely that strong trend following candle will be followed by another trend following candle.

 

16 wins to 11 losses, this is how edge looks like on random market situation and with trend change. Considering the average candle size of 40 pips. 16/40(-1) equals 624 pips in profit, vs. 11 x 40(+1) equals 451 pips of loss, leaving us total of 173 pips of profit in just about 48 hours.
