Strategy

Long Entry Rules

Enter a buy order if the following rules or conditions hold sway:

  1. If the medium sea green line of the Standard Deviation MT4 indicator shows a low reading (see Fig. 1.0), it is indicative of a possible rise in volatility and a subsequent big price move, as such we’ll wait for other indicators for confirmation of what next.
  2. If the chartreuse dotted line of the BBands_Stop_BO custom indicator gets aligned below the candlesticks as seen on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be pushed to the upside i.e. a trigger to go long on the selected currency pair.
  3. If the lime green line of the freeRSI custom indicator break below the 30.00 mark (oversold region) and breaks above this level as shown on Fig. 1.0, a bullish trend is said to be looming i.e. a signal to go long on the designated forex pair.

Stop Loss for Buy Entry: Place stop loss below support (green dotted line).

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Buy Entry

Exit or take profit if the following rules or conditions takes center stage:

  1. If the medium sea green line of the Standard Deviation indicator reveals a very high reading, it is indicative that a big price change has just happened (after having a big bullish trend), but that a decrease in volatility could soon follow, hence an exit or take profit is advised.
