Strategy

Long Entry Rules

Initiate a buy entry if the following indicator or chart pattern gets put on display:

  1. If the red line of the TSI custom indicator breaks and hovers above the 0.00 level, price is said to be pushed to the upside i.e. a signal to buy the designated currency pair.
  2. If the red upward pointing arrow of the TSI_Signals.ex4 custom indicator gets shown on the activity chart, price is said to be pressured upwards i.e. a trigger to go long on the asset of choice.

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

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Buy Entry

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

  1. If red line of the TSI custom indicator declines to breach the 0.00 level during a buy signal, it is an indication of weaning bulls power, hence an exit or take profit will suffice.
  2. If the blue downward pointing arrow of the TSI_Signals.ex4 custom indicator pops up on the activity chart during a bullish signal, it is a sign that price is taking a hit and a reversal is imminent i.e. a signal to exit or take profit without delay.

Sell Entry Rules

Enter a sell order if the following holds sway:

  1. If the red line of the TSI custom indicator breaks and hovers below the 0.00 level, price is said to be taken lower i.e. a signal to sell the designated forex pair.
  2. If the blue downward pointing arrow of the TSI_Signals.ex4 custom indicator gets seen on the activity chart, the dominant sentiment in the market is said to be bearish i.e. a trigger to go short on the asset of interest

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

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit or take profit if the following takes center stage:

  1. If red line of the TSI custom indicator rises to break above the 0.00 level during a sell alert, it is an indication of halting bears power, hence an exit or take profit will do.
