Long Entry Rules

Enter a buy order if the following indicator or chart pattern gets put on display:

  1. If price breaks above the red upper horizontal line of the breakout-zones custom indicator as seen on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be taken higher, hence a signal to buy the selected currency pair.
  2. If the blue upward pointing arrow of the doji_arrows.ex4 custom indicator gets sighted slightly below the candles as shown on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be taken higher i.e. a trigger to buy the designated forex pair.
  3. If the maroon line and histograms (royal blue & dark gray) of the CCI-Histogram custom indicator gets aligned above the 0.00 level as depicted on Fig. 1.0, a buy signal is said to be in place.

Stop Loss for Buy Entry: Place stop loss below support.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Buy Entry

Exit or take profit if the following rules or conditions takes precedence:

  1. If price breaks below the red lower horizontal line of the breakout-zones custom indicator while a buy signal is ongoing, an exit or take profit is advised.
  2. If while a buy signal is running, the red downward pointing arrow of the doji_arrows.ex4 custom indicator pops up somewhat above price bars, an exit or take profit is recommended.
  3. If the maroon line and probably the dark gray histogram of the CCI-Histogram custom indicator break below the 0.00 level while a buy signal is ongoing, an exit or take profit is in the cards.

Sell Entry Rules

Enter a sell order if the following holds true:

  1. If price breaks below the red lower horizontal line of the breakout-zones custom indicator as illustrated Fig. 1.1, price is said to be pushed lower, hence a signal to sell the designated forex pair.
  2. If the red downward pointing arrow of the doji_arrows.ex4 custom indicator takes positions somewhat above the candles as depicted on Fig. 1.1, price is said to be driven lower, hence a sell alert.
  3. If the maroon line and histograms (red & dark gray) of the CCI-Histogram custom indicator gets aligned below the 0.00 level (refer to Fig. 1.1), a sell signal is said to be in place.

Stop Loss for Sell Entry: Place stop loss above resistance.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit or take profit if the following takes center stage:

  1. If price surges above the red upper horizontal line of the breakout-zones custom indicator during a sell signal, an exit or take profit will suffice.
  2. If while a buy signal is running and the blue upward pointing arrow of the doji_arrows.ex4 custom indicator pops up fairly below price bars, an exit or take profit is advised.
  3. If the maroon line and probably the dark gray histogram of the CCI-Histogram custom indicator break above the 0.00 level during a sell signal, an exit or take profit is in the offing.
