The 28Pairs Currency Strength Trading System - also known as Double-GAP Strategy - is my primary trading philosophy and is based on exploiting individual currency strength and weakness.
Now including currency speed impulse and supply/demand zones.
I have created two threads: To keep trading rules and theory together this thread is not open for asking questions.
A separated thread for posting trades and questions is opened here.
The principle idea is buying strength and selling weakness. This is a fundamental strategy for investors in all marketplaces. Most amateur retail traders in Forex either ignore this winning strategy or are unaware of it.
With this strategy, we look at individual currencies rather than currency pairs and then buy the strong currency and sell it against the weak currency. This will give your trading a real edge.
When I refer to the Market I mean THE 8 main currencies and the 28 FX pairs that are derived from those 8 currencies.
The market has to be seen always in equilibrium. If one currency is bought some other(s) must be sold. This we could call her money flow. (I may use terms in a different way as they are used usually in this thread).
When we analyze the market we look at the whole market which to us is 8 currencies and 28 pairs. (Exotic pairs are not included for now.)
When most traders look at a chart to find a trade setup they would need to check 28 charts to understand what the Forex market is doing. When you use the Currency Strength28 strategy you only look at currencies, not pairs, and for that, we need to check only ONE CHART! Do you understand now the edge?
So lets first have a look at the 8 currencies which are:
US Dollar, Euro, Yen and Pound, these are the most important because they have the largest trading volume, then there are Swiss Franc, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand Dollars.
Each single currency belongs to a single economy. Some currencies are trending up some currencies are trending down, this information you can not see from a single pairs chart. For example: if the EURUSD pair is trending up you do not know why from looking at a single chart. Maybe the Euro is strong and the USD is flat or the Euro is flat and the USD is weak or even both are strong and the Euro is just stronger. Remember in any chart there are two currencies they are called the BASE and the QUOTE currency.
To maximize your wins and minimize your losses you need to know what an individual currency is doing in the context of the whole market. Staying with our EURUSD example: an EURUSD chart will show you only 1/28th of the market so you only have a small amount of information to base your trading decision on. Given that each currency can be paired with 7 other currencies you should be basing your trade decision on the information that all 14 pairs give you. By using the CStrength28 indicator you can get all that information from just the one chart.
Now you may know all of that already but stay put I will add new stuff!
Terms I will be using in this thread may be different from usual.
CS=Currency Strength Line, GAP=(currency up or down/2 bars), sGAP=single GAP, dGAP=double GAP, iGAP=inside GAP, oGAP=outside GAP, iDir=inside Direction, oDir=outside Direction, MaMom=Market Momentum, MFib=Market Fibonacci level.
The goal of the strategy is to find out the sentiment of the market and which pair is good to trade and which pair is not. As a trader, you should know if a currency is trending, consolidating or reversing as this will give you information on how to trade. Do we look for continuation or do we look for pullback/reversal? This is THE most important information you need to trade and this strategy will give you the answer!
You are always welcome to ask me questions about the strategy and the specialized indicator.
