Some months ago, I wrote a series of articles focused on my performance using what I call “My Golden Cross Strategy”. This strategy earned me most of my prizes in the trader contest, and has a potential to earn me much more if it can be strictly adhered to. I have decided to embark on a side-project, to automate my trading system. At the time I had the idea, my visual Jforex strategy building skills were not as good as they are now. Over time, I have studied other strategies, and I believe it is time to automate this system, and let it loose in the strategy contest.
Strategy Summary
  1. One hour chart
  2. Currency pair selection: The method works with any Currency pair, pairs with lower spreads are advisable. The system also performs very well in volatile markets; this is because it is a system that is trend-following.
  3. Indicators: 20-day and 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA), 84-day (Commodity Channel Index) CCI and 18 -Time Period (Time Segmented Volume) TVS.

January 2013 was a very interesting trading month for me; I learnt more in that month, than all my months of trading combined. I learnt to SEE the trend. This might seem funny to a lot of traders, because most traders open their charts and can tell easily if the market is bullish or not. The essence of this article is to share my trading setup and some trading tips which have helped me become a better trader.

Before I begin, there are some basic trading principles which we must consider.

The markets trend and they can trend for several weeks or months.
The best place to enter a trade is after a trend has been confirmed; this would probably mean placing trades in the “middle” of a trend.

When the trend is up, we buy dips and when the trend is down we sell rallies.

The Golden Cross is a very popular trading concept used for generating trading signals. The signals are generated when a short-term Moving Average (MA) crosses over or under a long-term Moving Average. Bullish signals are created when the short-term MA crosses over the long-term MA, while we get bearish signals when the short-term MA crosses below a long-term MA.
An example can be seen below; a cross between the 5-day

You got good ideas in your article. But, I think that the trend definition is not complete. And the signals' entry analysis is too simple. Really good article for beginners but a lot of other good considerations are missed here to complete your article.
