Submitted by Edward Revy on February 28, 2007 - 14:49.
Current Forex trading system represents a well thought and very simple combination of indicators. Knowing what signal to look for with each indicator, provides a strong tip for good entries and exits.
Time frame: Any.
Indicators: 5 EMA, 10 EMA, Stochastic (14, 3, 3), RSI (14, 70, 30)
Entry rules: Buy when 5 EMA crosses above 10 EMA and Stochastic lines are heading north (up) and Stochastic is not in overbought position (above 80.00 level) and RSI is above 50.
Entry rules: Sell when 5 EMA crosses below 10 EMA and Stochastic lines are heading south (down) and Stochastic is not in oversold position (below 20.00 level), and RSI is below 50.
Exit rules: when 5 EMA and 10 EMA cross in the opposite direction or if RSI crosses the 50 mark again.
Advantages: allows filtering entries and thus is more accurate.
Disadvantages: 5 and 10 EMAs can give very early exit signals.
