Scalping system #13 (CarlPlayer scalping system)

Submitted by Rich

Hi guys, I've found this scalping system and want to share it with traders on this Forum. Enjoy!

Hi everyone :)

I just signed up couple a days ago and excited to join this forum. I'm
currently in awe with the professionalism shown in this forum and hope
to contribute too in the future.

I've been trading a simple scalper trading method for the past couple
of months with consistent success but I have to sit at my computer and
watch for the trading to setup. So I guess what I am asking for is for
someone to program an indicator and or an expert advisor for me (I'm
not a programmer) based in my method.



Here's the scalper system in a nutshell:

Could be applied to any of the 4 major currency pairs and I use a 5
minute candlestick chart with a 10 period Exponential Moving Average.
Buy or sell when price had closed either above or below an 10 EMA.

Rules for entering a trade:

1. Three or more consecutive candles to close either above (for a LONG
trade) or below (for a SHORT trade) the 10 EMA. These three or more
consecutive candles bodies and wicks included MUST NOT TOUCH the 10
EMA line.

2. If the 1st criteria is met, The bodies (only the bodies not the
wicks) of these three candles must equal 10 or more pips before I
consider entering the trade. These candles can be any color (bullish
and bearish combined its OK -- the color of the candles DOES NOT
matter) as long they are not touching the 10 EMA and they equal 10 or
more pips we are go to trade.

If you do not see three consecutive candles whose bodies are equal at
least 10 pips total then you must wait for the next candle to close to
add 10 or more pips before entering a trade.

Example: If the first candles body is 4 pips and the second candles
body is 2 pips and the third candles body is 2 pips that is only 8
pips total so you must wait till the next candle closes, lets say the
next candle closed at 3 pips now you have a total of 11 pips. All
candles bodies and wicks MUST NOT touch the 10 EMA line.

3. Trade MUST be in the same direction of the 10 EMA.

4. If all of these requirements are met then a trade can be entered.
Long if candles are above 10 EMA or Short if candles are below the 10

5. Trade in dual lots (i.e. 2, 4,10, 20, etc.) to take full advantage
of short-term trends, I'll explain ahead.

6. Take Profits at 10 PIPS. Exit half open positions at 10 pips profit
and move the rest to break even, trail 10 pips afterwards, You may
ride the trend for as long as each candle opens in the direction of
the trend (long trend candle opens bullish short trend candle opens
bearish, and candle is above or below the 10 EMA).

5. Initial STOP LOSS should be set 10 pips above or below the highest
or lowest candle wick. As an example, when long look for the lowest
candles body or wick to the 10 EMA line add ( or subtract) 10 pips to
that to get your stop loss.

That's it. I'll highly appreciate if anyone could really help me
coding my system, as far as an indicator its concern, basically an
alert (visual. sound or both) to let me know when three or more
candles close above or below the 10 EMA line (not touching the line)
will do. Any questions and/or recommendations are welcomed.

Could you post some settings and which currency pair to use CarlPlayer.mq4
on because so far all the tests i have run with default setting on 5min
charts have failed

Hi All, anyone using this method with success?? Looks good on paper (as do most methods :) )



It's a good question. I think one needs to test it, I'd start with the highest or lowest candle from the 3 candles used for entry.

Rich's explanation are not clear about SL.
Thomas said, it should be a swing high or low, which means not necessarily within the 3 candles.


For the initial stop loss, do you mean highest or lowest candle from the 3 you used as a indicator?



KendoFX method can be found here:

Hmmmhhh ... I remember a few years ago has been released an ebook called : KENDO FOREX used EMA 10 By Close too.



I break test this EA , it is not good EA , I think rich would human control (enable/disable).

CarlPlayer.mq4 doesn't work properly, after some orders strategy tester just stops...


Candlesticks have wicks=shadows and bodies.


- at least 3 candles should close above 10 EMA.
- the bodies + shadows of those candles don't have to touch 10 EMA.
- the sum of 3 candle bodies should be at least 10 pips.
- Buy orders - above 10 EMA, Sell - below.
- open 2 orders at once (or 4 or 8 etc)


- TP = 10 pips for the first order. The second is left to run, move SL to breakeven, trail SL with a step of 10 pips until stopped out.
- Initial SL = 10 pips behind the Swing low/Swing high (that's how I understood it).


Hi rich,
Can you give me a Screen shot of this strategy so that i can code an indicator for this. What do you mean by the wick of a candle. what are the precise rules for exit and entry. How successfull is this system. Give me a full screen shot for this system
