***STRATEGY UPDATED! 09/08/2018 - #4224***



Hello everyone I'd like to welcome you to my thread. I want to share with you a great strategy that I have been trading for over one year now consistently. I have had pretty good success with this strategy, and providing you follow ALL the trade rules of the strategy you can also have good success.

This strategy is based off of trading trend reversals. It requires you to be very patient, and calm as confirmed set ups are few, but when there is a confirmed set up it will be profitable most of the time. There are 4 main indicators that are used for this strategy.

We will trade mainly on H4 chart, although H1, and D1 time frames can also be used.

It is very important to make sure that all the indicators are in agreement for a confirmation of a trade, if not then it will reduce your probability of success.

Setting the SL & TP levels is a personal choice. For me when I do set a SL, I would normally set my SL at the previous swing high or swing low (previous ZigZag Arrow) and, check pivot levels. I also pay close attention to price action. The TP can either be a fixed target (+50-100 pips) or using Fibonacci retractment, % ADR, or when there is a new confirmed opposite signal to get maximum pips. You can also set a trailing stop after a predetermined min amount of pips made, and then move SL to BE etc. I will monitor the price action the majority of the time, and get out if I see the trend is changing, and a new reversal forming. Please see below the trade rules:


Rules to buy:

 

  1. A green ZigZag Arrow will appear.
  2. The Turbo JSRX indicator was/is in the oversold zone (Below the 30% level) and indicating a green uptrend.
  3. The price will hit and/or be within the pivot level zone (0-25 pips) levels, S61, S78, S100.
  4. When the candle crosses, and closes above the 10 EMA up from below, and only if the trade is still confirmed by the 3 indicators.


Rules to sell:

 

  1. A red ZigZag Arrow will appear.
  2. The Turbo JSRX indicator was/is in the overbought zone (Above the 70% level) and indicating a red down trend.
  3. The price will hit and/or be within the pivot level zone (0-25 pips) levels, R61, R78, R100.
  4. When the candle crosses, and closes below the 10 EMA down from above, and only if the trade is still confirmed by the 3 indicators.


So basically when all 3 indicators have confirmed a valid trade, and are all in 100% agreement with each other according to the rules, and the candle crosses, and closes above or below the 10 EMA, an order is validated, and opened.



It is also very important to monitor price action. Sometimes there will be a big fast move with the current candle shooting through the EMA, in that case I would not wait for the current candle to close, and I would enter straight away to catch the rest of the move. Do this at your own discretion!



This strategy works well, and I encourage all of you guys to try this strategy, and please share your results with us here in the thread. I know that this strategy can be very profitable for everyone. For now let us enjoy trading, and collecting more pips from the market!

Please give me your feedback, and lets all enjoy success from this strategy. Green pips to you all.

Seems very interesting! Do these indicators repaint? Which pairs and TF have you used this on mostly?

yalgaar Nov 9, 2017 5:23pm | Post# 3

Can you provide the settings for each indicator? I just loaded my charts with all the indicators you mentioned but it just looks totally different.

The only indicator that can repaint is the zig zag arrow, this is why I use the trend indicator, the stochastic and the SMA to make the confirmation before opening a trade.

I mainly trade the major pairs only, but it can be used on any pair you like, and I use it mainly on H4 and H1 TF.

I don't change any settings except for changing the colors to my preference.

On the stochastic MBFX timing indicator I remove the 50 level as its not really relevant to how I use it.

Thanks guilherme, I was hoping the template will be fine as I saved it from a Mac and sometimes the templates don't look the same on PC. I'll update the first post.

You could take this trade (risky) but I would not trade it as the stochastic is not oversold too much. There also seems to be a lot of resistance from looking at the trend line. I would wait or check H4 for confluence.

spijack Nov 10, 2017 5:24am | Post# 13

nice strategy you have here, simple and clean TF...
it would be much better if your zigzag indicator give alert, or someone can modified..

good luck and happy green pips

Hi mrdfx

Did you mean stochastic is not overbought?

Here is a nice set up forming on GOLD. I'm just waiting for a close below the SMA and will open a sell trade.

Lol yes correct my error. I mix them up sometimes.

1 quick clarification needed for a buy trade.

Lets say you get the Green Arrow from the ZigZag. You also notice that at this moment the MBFX indicator does show its oversold and has developed green color line.

The above conditions have met...but the trend line is not yet Green and the price has not moved above the 15SMA. You wait...now you notice that the trend line has turned green but price has still not crossed the 15SMA. You continue to wait.....now finally you see the price has crossed the 15SMA...but now the MBFX is not anymore at oversold levels (way above 30....more like 50 or 60)

what do you do in such a case?

yalgaar Nov 10, 2017 6:42am | Post# 18

{quote} Lol yes correct my error. I mix them up sometimes.
no worries, happens to me all the time! :-)
Also wanted to make sure someone does not get more confused.

But your MBFX indicator is now at around 50. Will this trade be still valid when the price crosses the 15SMA?

Also...I do notice that the price did cross the 15SMA in the previous candle? Why didn't you take the trade then? Or do we have to wait for the price to close below the 15SMA? and not just touch cross the 15SMA?

I am sorry about so many questions...I just want the rules to be clear.

In such a case if all 3 indicators are confirmed and the candle has crossed and closed above the SMA I will open a buy trade. The MBFX is to confirm the change in trend so even if its moving up to the 50 level from oversold it is still fine.
