"Hello guys i`ve been using one very profitable system and i want to share
it with all of you. If anyone has any suggestion i`m open to hear something
new to add in it.

This is my system.

I use 1h chart on GBP/JPY with Stoch(5,3,3) and RSI(7). My idea is this ...

Good point CS,

you'll have an advantage if you're able to combine knowledge received from different time frames.

Exiting at Bollinger Bands is possible, and the indicator itself provides a good visual reference for price action. I'd probably use a trailing stop once the Bollinger band is reached: if price advances outside the Bollinger bands, we'll get a good rally in an uptrend or a sell-off in a downtrend, so we could try to stay a bit longer to profit from the move.
In general, if a candle that hit the outer Bollinger band is relatively long, I move my trailing stop to 1/2 of its length, because if the move meant a strong continuation (which I expect and hope for), I'll be there to profit, but if it was the "last stroke", I'll be quick to exit, knowing that I still gave it a chance.

Best regards,


I was wondering if to get an appropriate entry signal one should progress either up or down the charts (look for signal on 1h, 2h, 4h then enter or in reverse order) or is this unnecessary? Also, should bollinger bands be used for TP targets?



Hi KP,

the trade has been placed correctly.
The TP is either an opposite trading signal
a trailing stop once in profit AND Stochastic reached an oversold/overbought level. A trailing stop should be placed behind the last closed candlestick OR, optionally to stay in a trade longer, behind the last but one closed candlestick. In both cases you will often be exiting before the move ends, but you'll be exiting with profits each time.
After all, catching the entire move from top to bottom is very difficult and not worth risking everything for it; although looking back at charts later it always tempting to get it all :)

Best regards,

Hello i would like to know wer would be the TP if applying this strategy. It has been mentioned before but would like to understand it further. Thanks for the guidance, Cheers

Hello i have attached a file which shows the sell trade i have entered according to your strategy. Further i would like to know when entering the sell trade do we need to wait till the red (black)candle has closed. I hope i m clear with my question.

SL is simply the lowest/highest point to the left from the signaling candle: often found within previous 1-2 candles.

Then you'll be sitting tight until Stochastic lines cross against your position for the first time. At that moment take half or 2/3 of profits made. Let the rest run and exit with the strategy rules.


okay, thanks. But, could someone please give more insight on stop loss management for this strategy?

Hey, CG

Originally, the system uses no ADX, and I personally think you don't need one more indicator here :)
If you need to code a system, I'd recommend forum - it is one of the coders' nests, a lot of EAs and indicators were born there.


I am relatively new to forex... but was wondering if anyone has written this system up as a program through ninja trader or is that even possible? Also, could someone post the backtested results or their own live results as I do not use MT4?
Lastly, I was wondering if this system is holding up in the current market conditions and how closley should I watch the ADX line when using this system?



You don't need the RSI for this system. The stochastic oscillator alone will suffice.

Thank you!

Teodosi is one of our great contributors, however, I haven't had a chance to ask details about his trading background. We haven't heard from him for quite a while, so I cannot be sure if he is visiting the website at all.

If to speak about the system background, it mainly uses the knowledge of japanese candlesticks and momentum trading for aiding market reversals.

Best regards,

Hello Edward,
