Forex trading strategy #5 (Stochastic lines crossover)

Here is a very basic overview of a role of a Stochastic indicator in the Forex trading. Knowing exactly what to expect from Stochastic, if you ever plan to add it to your own system, will affect trading results dramatically. For this trading method:

Currency pair: Any.
Time frame: Any.
Indicator: Stochastic (14, 3, 3)

Entry rules: Buy when the faster moving Stochastic line crosses above and up over slower moving stochastic line.

Exit rules: Sell when the opposite situation (next crossover) occurs and right after that open an opposite position. It is again recommended, once the first touch of Stochastic lines (possible future crossover) has been spotted, to wait until the following price bar on the chart has closed and only then take actions.


Advantages: can give entry and exit rules, easy to use.

Disadvantages: Stochastic is a lagging indicator – with this lines crossover system it can create a lot of false signals. Traders may want to change Stochastic regular settings for each particular currency pair to eliminate as many false signals as possible. Stochastic crossover system is good when used in combination with other indicators.

Hi Edward, as an experienced forex trader, can you recommend which trading platform is reputable and trustworthy.

Hi Abbey,

I would be happy to suggest you one, but I'm not sure this would be the right thing to do. First of all because I haven't traded with all (or at least with majority) of trading platforms available today to be able to make rational comparison. And also I don't want to give credits to any trading platform or a broker and in a year or two regret (hopefully not) about my recommendations because the recommended broker has changed its policy and became a bad one... Comments will stay but situation may change.
You may probably check a comment I posted here: ;
or refer to a website that specializes on providing information about Forex brokers online.
and good luck with you research!

Hi da prince,
First of all I would strongly recommend stopping trading with real account and return back to demo trading. If you lose way more than you panned to and it happens constantly, it means you've got to work on your trading strategy, probably review and make some changes and then start with demo testing all over again.

Regarding indicators, there is no absolutely good indicators, unless you write your own one, but you would benefit well from focusing on Pivot point trading, trend lines, support/resistance levels, Fibonacci numbers, EMA 200, and 20, Stochastic, MACD and RSI.

It takes time to become profitable in Forex, so don't be disappointed if your first experience is more about losses than wins, demo trade until you're confident you can switch to live account, but if you like to trade real now, make sure you trade the smallest lots possible.


Forex trading strategy #5 (Stochastic lines crossover) is a completion of Forex trading strategy #3 (Stochastic High-Low)

Just Want to share the Idea Trade with Full Stochastic in H1(60 Minutes Charts) at GBP/USD use parameter 20,3,3


I would like to know if this can be used in a 5min chart.

Thanks in advance,

and you used Stochastic (14, 3, 3) for AUD/JPY. Wich do you think it is better to EUR/USD?
