We will use demarker as main trend and momentum identification tool. Simple BB volatility dependent tunnel, will help us identify a breakout opportunity. Breakout must be also confirmed by growing volumes. For liquidation, two methods are used. Simple take profit and trailing stop based on broken BB line.

Forex strategy was tested on high quality historical data since 2003 (EURUSD 1H tick) and it is provided with expert advisor by theforexkings.

Used tools and indicators

Demarker (DEM 100) momentum indicator and trend filter. We will draw additional lines in the indicator window to modify and adjust sensitivity to trend and range (sell below zone 45, buy above zone 55). Adjust those parameters and indicator period to modify its sensitivity.

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.

Bollinger bands (BB period 60, deviation 2) BB tunnel is used to identify a breakout candle. Breakout must occur in the direction of DEM identified trend.

Volumes: Confirmation tool. Make sure you choose a broker with reliable tick data that will add value to this filter.

Advanced trailing stop (extra deviation 20 pips) In breakout situations, broken support will often turn resistance and vice versa. This is a perfect opportunity to turn it into a trailing stop while breakout lasts. Broken BB line will lead out tailing stop and extra deviation may be applied to cover for market volatility.
