Developing a System #3 (Dachel's trading system)

Hello, My name is Dachel and I developed a system this week which looks very nice. Maybe we can improve it a little bit more coz im still on backtesting and is not yet the final system. it is.

I used (IBFX) to perform the back test.

Here's the deal.

what pairs do you trade with this strategy
what is the stoploss and take profit.


Can you please document likely % win rate and profit to loss ratio per trade ?



good boy well done.its great
best of luck

Im not using the 8h chart but the 4h

If you are using 8 hour candlestick chart, which candle in EST will you use as 06:00am?

Please express in EST and GMT.

No problem,
UK is currently on GMT+1 (daylight offset)
Thus, 06:00 UK hours = 05:00 GMT
14:00 UK hours = 13:00 GMT
22:00 UK hours = 21:00 GMT

Good luck with your system!

Thanks for your answer Roger. Anyway i don't live in UK. I live in Ghana which uses GMT+1 and the system which i am testing requires me to get the hours i listed above, that is why i need to know the exact time in GMT.

Please help me convert them to GMT for my understanding.

If you live in UK, no need to convert anything. Your time zone currently has +1 hour offset due to daylight savings. Forex market also trades according to such daylight saving time. So you are fine with the hours as is.

You may always check your time against a well know resource of Forex market hours.


Hi everyone,
i am a little bit confuse about time conversion, can anyone please convert the following times in UK to GMT?

06:00 UK hours
14:00 UK hours
22:00 UK hours
Please help me convert them to GMT.
