Forex trading strategy #1 (Simple balanced system)

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.
Currency: Any.
Indicators: 5 EMA, 10 EMA, Stochastic (14, 3, 3), RSI (14, 70, 30)

EA: SimpleBalanced_1_0.mq4

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.

Edward, The ea does not work with the most recent MT4 build. Do you have one that is recent enough or could you provide one, please?

Im Robert from EU Slovenija....working with the strategy 1 month and realy succefuly.I have only problems with false signals on smaler timeframes ,so i use the strat. only on 4h and 24h time frame. i hope that we can improve the strategy with the exit point,because there is a lot of loose if we wait for the closin cross.I think that is the best to close the trade when the actual price crose the 10 EMA. if i think wrong correct me please.

good trading!


Thanks for the strategy. I have tried a few different ones, and none have matched the simplicity and accuracy I have found with this one. I made more pips in the first 10 days of using this than I did in the 2 months before. Maybe it is a fluke, I don't know, but I like it.

Also, I saw many people asking about an EA, and I have written a couple of simple EA's and scripts and am now making on EA for this strategy.

Right now it is is alpha testing. If anyone is interested in helping with the testing, please contact me at - kleelof@Y!.com. Be sure to include a clear title so your email does not get junked.

take care,
