Used tools and indicators

DeMarker oscillator (DEM 150) Demarker will identify trend and momentum. Also, it helps to avoid a ranging market. We do so by applying central no trade zone in the middle of indicators window (buy above, sell below value)

Exponential moving averages (EMA 500 and 250). Relative position of slow and fast EMA will help us to determine trend. All positions must be aligned with this trend.

Fractals: Fractal must create higher high/ lower low in the direction of trend. This shows that the wave structure of the market is aligned with trend.

Big candle (300 -15 pips). Candle with defined size closing in the direction of trend. It has surpassed the previous candle in the specific way. We enter the trade on its close.

Trailing stop (extra distance 80 pips): TS is adjusted with each fractal close. Additional distance may be applied.
