  1. If the pink lines of the RainbowMMA_05 custom indicator crosses the lines of the MultiTimeFrameMovingAverages.ex4 custom indicator bottom up as seen on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be pushed somewhat higher i.e. a signal to buy the currency of focus.

  1. If the pink lines of the RainbowMMA_05 custom indicator intersects the lines of the MultiTimeFrameMovingAverages.ex4 custom indicator top downward, then price is believed to be taking a dive, hence it is advisable to exit or take profit at once (refer to Fig. 1.0).

Initiate a sell order if the following chart setup gets displayed:

  1. If the pink lines of the RainbowMMA_05 custom indicator crosses the lines of the MultiTimeFrameMovingAverages.ex4 custom indicator top downward as shown on Fig. 1.1, the sentiment in the market is said to be somewhat bearish i.e. a signal to sell the currency of interest. The trading setup for a sell trigger is such that the candlesticks are trading below both indicator lines, with the pink lines hovering at the top, while the lines of the MultiTimeFrameMovingAverages.ex4 custom indicator does stay frequently above price bars as well.

Stop Loss for Sell Entry: Place stop loss 2 pips above immediate resistance.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit or take profit if the following holds true:

  1. If the pink lines of the RainbowMMA_05 custom indicator intersects the lines of the MultiTimeFrameMovingAverages.ex4 custom indicator bottom up during a sell alert, then price is believed to be making a U-turn to the upside, hence it is advisable to exit or take profit at once (refer to Fig. 1.1). In this case, all we need for an exit or take profit is the pink lines of the RainbowMMA_05 custom indicator to cut through the one of the line (red) of the MultiTimeFrameMovingAverages.ex4 custom indicator.
