Aggressive scalping with double MACD (FOREX strategy)

MACD might be the most useful indicator in forex. It is almost a shame to combine it with some other tool of either trend identification or position entry timing. By combining MACDs with different calculation periods, indicators can serve both as trend identification and entry signal. And it works very well.

This trading setup is extremely aggressive, accurate and with tight money management.

 

Used forex indicators

MACD (Moving average convergence divergence)

Trend identification: 48,102,9 (standard histogram)

Entry signal: 5,10,9 (thick red histogram)

 

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.

 

Second MACD is applied on first indicators' data. Drag and drop it from navigator menu on first MACD chart. Choose : apply on first indicators' data).

 

Forex strategy rules:

  • First MACD (50,Grey) histogram is above zero. This will be considered uptrend.

  • First red MACD bar (following a series of below zero bars) closed above zero (closed together with bullish candle). We enter long.

Stop loss is placed 3 pips below the price low, that was reached while Red MACD histogram closed below zero.

Take profit: We wait for first red (or Grey) MACD bar to close below zero line. If the position doesn't reach profit with first below zero MACD bar we do not close it.

 

We can open another position at higher price and adjust stop loss and take profit to the second position. We Exit both in profit on first below zero MACD histogram, or at stop loss below the second signal.
