Swing forex strategy that works (Swing and hedge)

When using swing systems, most of the time traders choose to close the losing trade before entering the swing trade into opposite direction. This approach is most conservative one, however when trend reverses clearly, closing the trade means leaving money on the table.

Backtest and optimize for any currency pair. Trade multiple instruments simultaneously, day and night.

Trade automatically, without errors and emotions. Save your time and energy. 

The more aggressive option (and the one we prefere) is to increase lotsize in increments and enter the trade in opposite direction. This gives us a chance to overcompensate for any loss that already exists and add some profit to it.

We accept loss only after new trend fails.

 

System was tested extensively both in historical data and real time market. When looking at historical data, losing period are infrequent and can be easily tracked on historical data, increasing the accuracy of test. To put it simply. System either closes all existing trade in profit, or it takes loss on high calculation period EMA crossover.

 

This specific forex strategy can be traded by Chaos warfare MT4 EA by theforexkings. Expert advisor was also used for testing and it has lot of similarities with our other favorite system : Red king MT4 EA, that was tested extensively during the period of last 6 months.

Second level trades (hedge and overcompensate):

 

 

Allow hedge and overcompensate: First level trade exists in opposite side. Primary trades remain open as the trend reverses. Expert will now enter second level trades in opposite direction with increased lotsize and number of trades.

 

Averaging conditions are omitted. The goal is to overcompensate for existing loss and close all trades in overall profit. Once the second level trade fails, we accept loss (trend reverses back to primary trade direction).

 

Lotsize : For first level trade. Modify targets proportionally with lotsize (in account currency, in test we used 0,01 lotsize). 

Hedge lotszie: Increase the lotsize for second level swing trades.

 

Hedge max number of trades: Max number allowed for second level swing trades.

 

Closing of trades: We will close all existing trades at once as soon as the overall account profit reaches target profit (2 USD if we use lotsize 0,01 – increase proportionally). In expert, close all on trend reversal must be set to TRUE.

 

Taking the loss: We take loss only at the second level trades, when new trend fails (EMA TR crossover). First level trade will remain open and we will try to close it in profit if trend continues in previous direction
