Entry X 2

There are 2 types of entry signal. 1 with PSAR outside outer bands, 2 with PSAR inside the bands (anywhere inside).

1. PSAR flips from above/below to opposite and is outside the outer Band (above upper for SELL, below Lower for BUY). This is our heads-up message. Then we observe the 2 EMAs, must cross (8 above 13 for buy and 8 below 13, for sell). Price MUST be above (BUY) or below (SELL) the centre DWL/DBL bands. Confirmed entry with emergency stop at the relevant PSAR.

2. PSAR flips from above/below to opposite and is inside the Band (above PRICE for SELL, below PRICE for BUY). This is our heads-up message. Again, we observe the 2 EMAs, must cross and be in the right mode (red/red SELL and green/green BUY) Price MUST be above (BUY) or below (SELL) the centre DWL/DBL bands, AND inside the BUY or SELL channel. Confirmed entry with emergency stop at the relevant PSAR.

Exit Rules and Management:

All trades carry the initial stop at PSAR rule but we can actively stop the trade upon several conditions.

1. Target of 2:1(between PSAR and entry) ratio locked in or hit too quickly to move limit.

2. PSAR flips back to opposite side

3. EMAs change colour/cross

4. Divergence suggests lock in very tight

5. Price closes opposite side of DWL/DBL centre bands

6. Combinations of the above

This strategy has been back tested by professionals and traded live by many (very profitably) for months at time of writing. There will be losses! Remember your other RULES.

ADDITIONAL

1) Consider adding a MACD

2) Check for divergence

3) Check higher time frame

4) Check High value EMAs

STOP

TRADE MANAGEMENT

As soon as you have locked in a profit delete your limit
