Hi my dear Dukascopy traders. Some of my forex trader friends in Azerbaijan say that gold is the one of the most difficult commodity to trade. Over my 4 years of monitoring the gold market noticed me many profitable strategy. Today I will show you my gold strategy. I have tested this several times and gain many pips from the trading and I am sure that this strategy will useful for you.
WARNING: Please read this article carefully and test it in you demo account 5 or 6 month.
In this strategy we will use 3 indacator (Moving average, MACD and RSI)
1. Add 4 Exponential Moving Averages
  • 25 days Exponential Moving Averages (color blue)
  • 50 days Exponential Moving Averages (color yellow)
  • 100 days Exponential Moving Averages (color green)
  • 200 days Exponential Moving Averages (color red)

Exponential moving average show us support and resistance, indicate take profit and stop loss. I use moving averages to track the candle and put take profit and stop lose.
2. Add MACD (Moving Average Convergence/Divergence Oscillator)
  • Fast EMA - 12
  • Slow EMA - 26
  • MACD SMA - 9

► Introduction
In this article we will discuss how to find key support and resistance areas quickly and easily. We will use a simple method to reach this goal. This is a step-by-step guide. Some charts and examples are also included. They will help us understand this method better and visualize different points we’ll discuss.
Although this method is very technical, it does require some practice at first. I suggest that you first read this article. Then, open some daily charts of different currency pairs and try to find the key support and resistance levels in them. If you have some knowledge of Supply and Demand levels, this could be handy. I hope you will find this article helpful for your trading. :-)
_______________________________________________________________________________
► Currencies To Use
The method is a pure technical method. Therefore, it works for all currencies. You can use it for any currency that you feel comfortable trading. Actually, you can use it for other markets too. For example, you can use this exact method for finding key support and resistance areas in Gold, Silver, Stocks, Futures and so on.

► Introduction

In this article we will discuss how to profit by trading a false trend break. We will use a clever strategy to reach this goal. This is a complete strategy that includes entry, stop loss and take profit levels. Some charts, setups and trade examples, are also included. They will help us understand the False Trend Break Strategy better and reinforce different points we’ll discuss.
This is a very technical method. We simply look for an up-trend to appear on the daily chart. We draw its trend-line and wait patiently for it to break down. Then, we examine carefully the candle immediately after the break-down. We are looking for signs that the break is false. In such a case, we enter a long position (buy).
Although the method is simple to follow technically, it is quite hard psychologically. Taking a long position after price breaks down seems a suicidal, counter-momentum trade! Nonetheless, the strategy has its logic and can be quite effective and profitable. A back-test on EUR/USD is included to demonstrate this. I hope you will find this article helpful for your trading. :-)

► IntroductionIn this article we will discuss how to profit by following the trend. We will use a powerful strategy to achieve this goal. The strategy includes an entry, stop loss and take profit levels. Some charts, with setups and trade examples, are also included. These examples help explain the 1-2-3-TRADE Strategy and reinforce different points we’ll discuss.This is a very technical method. We simply count the times a trend line is being tested. We enter the trade exactly at the right moment, the third test. Although the method is simple, it is quite effective and profitable. Two back-tests (on EUR/USD and GBP/USD) clearly demonstrate this. I hope you find this article and strategy helpful for your trading. :-)____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________► What Really Happens in a Trend Line?Here is an example of an up trend on the EUR/USD Daily chart. Buyers supported price at the first six points (green arrows). However, when price tested the trend line for the seventh time, buyers lost power. Price started to range around the trend line (red…

@geula4x hi thank you for this awesome article,
what if the 3rd touch (test candle) go in the other side of the trendline but close in the good side of the trendline with at least 20 pips away from it, do we enter the trade or no?
thanks

@adloule Hello :) IMHO yes, we should trade. As long as the CLOSE of any candle isn't below the trendline, the trend is still valid. Happy trading :)

► IntroductionIn the last article, "Simple And Profitable Method For Trading Breakouts", we talked about finding a Barrier that price has tested and watching it for Breakout. In this article we will discuss a more general topic: how to find key price levels. These levels sometimes get tested several times, until they finally breakout too.Key price levels are one of the most important technical analysis tools. Finding these levels is very important for us traders. Such levels usually attract price to them. These levels often act as support and resistance. Trends may start, end or reverse there. Also, key price levels are usually good entry, take profit and exit points for trade positions.In this article we will discuss how to find key price levels. We will use a simple, straight forward approach for achieving this goal. We will analyze the Daily, 4 Hour and 1 Hour time frames. However, you can use the same technique for any time frame you trade. Some recent charts of EUR/USD are also included, for a better understanding of this method and how easily it can be applied.By the way, this is a very technical method. I think that it can easily be automated. If any JForex (or the newer Vis…
