Scalping system “10 points”
Recommended timeframes M1
This trading strategy is used on the chart with the period M1. We add MACD Oscillator with the settings (13, 26 and 9) and Stochastic Oscillator the settings (5, 3 and 3), which will be used as indicators. The best time periods for trading with the use of this strategy is European and American sessions. It is preferable to choose currency pairs with the medium or high volatility (currency pair of the Major group are quite suitable).
After adjusting the chart and adding required indicators, follow the instructions below to open trading positions:
The following conditions can be used as a signal for opening long positions:
- the lines of MACD histogram are in the positive zone above the zero level;
- after the decline below the level 20, Stochastic Oscillator (the line %К or %D) has risen above this level.
Stop loss is set at the distance of one point below the nearest local low.
Take profit is set at the level of 10 points from the opening price.

Когда начинающий трейдер испытывает трудности в торговле, первая его мысль — для полного успеха на рынке необходимо научиться прогнозировать движение цены. Однако, после изучения реальной картины, становится ясно, что для долгосрочных прогнозов нужны теоретические знания, в частности, необходимо уметь использовать фундаментальный анализ, а для краткосрочных прогнозов — технический.
Анализируя ситуацию, трейдер заметит, что в течение длительного времени рынок движется вверх и вниз длинными цикличными волнами.
Если посмотреть на график, то мы заметим образующиеся на нем краткосрочные фигуры, которые имеют свойство повторяться около вершин и впадин. Таким образом, наблюдая за повторяющими паттернами разных видов, можно быстро вычислить прибыль, которая возможна только в том случае, если принять верное решение в нужный момент.
Чаще всего новички полагают, что рынок есть не что иное, как постоянно повторяющий сам себя механизм. И если трейдер сможет освоить все характерные фигуры и циклы, то он легко может стать постоянным обладателем большой прибыли. В погоне за этой целью каждый трейдер начинает изучать рынок, используя всю доступную литературу.
Здесь стоит отметить, что в первый год…

In this article, I am going to explain a simple but powerful trading system, as an example of how to combine a short term view, with a wider one. In order to do so, I will use a thirty minutes chart to find good entry points, and a wider time frame, that in this case will be four hours, to see the main tendency.
In order to have a more clear vision of this, we will be using some tools, such as trend lines in the four hours time frame chart, which will be very useful to set clear limits on when and where the tendency starts and ends. This is very important, because while the positions are open, it is very easy to fall in a deceptive spiral of wishful thinking and tolerance to losses, that invariably will lead us to undesired results. To avoid that, the use of a simple line will show us this limits, and will help us in the decision making process when we are inside the market.
Let’s see an example of this, for the EURUSD pair, in a four hours time frame chart of the current week:
We can see that, from the candle that actually ends the bullish tendency, until the start of the bearish one, there is a period of almost one week of uncertainty, in which, we will be systematically out of t…

Traders spend a lot of time and energy trying to find the Perfect System. They argue that they will struck it rich once they find THE SYSTEM or if they’re discretionary, once they refine their trading enough. It has long been my assertion that risk control and diversification are much more important then the trading system itself.
I've argued that you don't have to be a genius trader in order to make money in the markets. In fact you can make money with remarkably simple trading systems. In this article we'll go over one system that has only 1 entry/exit trading rule. Yes you read that right, ONE. Here's a little preview of the results for this system.
Toward the end of the article I present a four-year backtest of this system on the four most liquid currency pairs EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD and AUD/USD. Here is the simplest system on this entire website.
Ten-Month Moving Average System
There is only 1 entry/exit rule. If price closes above the 10-month simple moving average, you buy. If price falls below the 10-month moving average, you sell. This is a Stop and Reverse System (SAR). Once your long gets the exit signal (price below 10 SMA) you close the position and initiate a n…

While splitting money between different systems is great, just how related is each system to each other?
For example, what if I had a few systems that bought breakouts in different time-frames? So system 1 might buy a 10-day breakout, and system 2 might buy a 20-day breakout. Is this really a good strategy? My experience says no.
I like to use different styles for each system. That makes the correlation much lower. For example, the Smart Money uses data that has nothing to do with price. The Breakout system buys breakouts (although it's more complicated than just an n-day breakout). PT2 buys ahead of a breakout. Breakdown shorts breakdowns. Base Hit buys on a dip.
By throwing these different styles into the mix, you can often have a system zigging while the other zags. This makes for a much smoother equity curve.
Side note - I believe this is while Richard Dennis had a tough time getting investors to stay with him later in his career. He made huge amounts of money, but the drawdowns were large, and he did not diversify between system styles I believe (can't say for certain, but Curtis Faith, one of the original Turtle Traders was only taught two breakout systems when he was trained…

What drives us human beings? what is the force that drives each and every action we make?
The answer is simple: Emotions.
Emotion leads us in a way we cannot explain. from simple choices like eating a chocolate bar, to more complicated ones like asking a girl on marriage, our emotions, our feelings, are there playing their big part in the decision. There are two emotions that surpass all others: pain and pleasure.
Have you ever wondered why you eat that burger although you know that you are on a diet? or maybe why on your childhood you preferred to play rather than study?
We are often focused on instantaneous gratification that our short-term solutions eventually become long term problems. we naturally link pain or pleasure to almost every event in our life. And these connections we make will influence future decisions on similar events. If you ever had a car accident, you don’t want it to happen again, so you fear it, you fear the pain it caused to you, and this makes you drive more cautiously or maybe stop driving at all. And there are those who fear driving not because they had an accident but they fear it might happen. Their fear controlled them.
These feelings are very powe…

Technical analysis can be divided in two major categories: objective and subjective. Subjective technical analysis is defined by methods and patterns that are not clear, and a conclusion from this type of method reflects the personal interpretations of the analyst. This creates the possibility that two analysts applying the same method to the same data can have different conclusions. Because they come from personal experience, these methods are not testable. Subjective technical analysis cannot be called wrong, this would have been in the case when it can be tested and rejected by evidence. Nevertheless, if you ask traders about it, many of them will strongly believe in their own subjective analysis. This is a consequence of the erroneous beliefs.
The human mind is built to look for and find patterns, even if they are just an illusion. Human nature is repulsed by the new, unpredictable and unexplained, so our mind tries to seek order and patterns. Acquiring knowledge can fail in the following ways: learning falsehood or failing to learn the truth. Of these two, the mind is more keen on adopting falsehood.

For years I read about trading strategies, different types of charts, indicators and other tools of technical analysis. Every day there is new indicator or strategy somewhere on internet and due to human nature traders think that if strategy or indicator is complicated, and if they don't understand what does it show, it has to be something great that will for sure make profit. Process of using such indicators of strategies in probably 99% of cases ends up in one of these two scenarios:

First scenario:

  • Trader finds cool new strategy or indicator;
  • Since it looks nice with all the nice colors, and it seems complicated, and guy that invented it put screenshots
    of few profitable trades, trader decides to use it;
  • After first 5 trades using this indicator/strategy there is one profitable trade and four bad ones so trader
    concludes that this indicator/strategy doesn't work and stops using it;
  • Trader continues searching another Holy Grail strategy that will make millions in 10 days.
Second scenario:
  • Trader finds cool new strategy or indicator;

that's not true , whenever you increase your R:R , your ratio of winning trades will also decrease dramatically , just try to backtest your strategy of 100SL and 300TP and you will realize you ratio of winning trades won't be even 20%.... so you will lose all your money anyway in the long run

kokky 21 Oct.

True, percentage of wining trades decreases with bigger RRR, but stays slightly above minimal requirement for profit. Because it is only slightly above, I have to use large SL and TP so spread participate in trade as low as possible. For instance if SL is 10 pips, spread of 1 pip participate in trade with 10%, but if SL is 100 pips, 1 pip spread participate with only 1%.

I understand what you want to say, and it would be true if markets is driven by pure mathematics, but it is actually driven with human emotion and that gives us just enough edge to be able to take small profit.

After publishing my first article two months ago,which was quite popular by the way ,I wanted to make a significant contribution to the community and started to search for brand new subject that has not been approached yet in the contest. To find that I searched all 66 pages of article library ,which has none less then 15 articles per page totaling to a mind-blowing number of 990 articles.
Although it took a while I found tha the subject which hasn’t been approached yet is my Fibonacci Fan Lines based Trading System which I have been using for years.

“Sometimes the things you are looking for, are right in front of your eyes.”

Fibonacci Fan Lines Trading System.
1.System Description

This system works by crossing Fibonacci Fan lines with Fibonacci Retracements (were possible) and can be used to estimate support & resistance levels, potential reversals, breakouts and can help you predict future trend movements , being one of the few instruments of it’s kind that can help you achieve that.
Also the system is a very good weapon for long term technical analysis and has outstanding results on 1 Day , 1 Week and 1Month time frames. …

Introduction:
Now a day, the technology is taking over in many aspects of everyone’s life. Obviously the financial field cannot escape this reality. And due to aggressive marketing in the forex, many “robots and combo: R&C” (R&C = robots, social trading, autocopy trading, cyborg trading, trading signals, etc.) are commercialized to everyone in the forex market, and it seems that they are replacing significantly the manual trading. Is the robotized trading more effective than the manual one? Can we use the R&C effectively in order to be profitable? Because one thing we need to understand is that the robots will never replace humans in the forex trading market, the same way that the technology cannot replace completely the mean essence of everything: the human being.
In the forex, robots are software codified to takes trading decisions: open/close positions, send trading signals, generate trading alerts, etc. The introduction of robots in the forex divides the trading world in 2 realities reflected in the forex statistics: a) around more than 95 to 99% of the forex R&C are not profitable; b) around 80 to 95% of human trading manually are not profitable. Then, it is a fact …

If there's one trading-related activity that I really enjoy doing is creating simple mechanical strategies that have a statistical edge, and can be successfully used by anyone, regardless of experience level in the world of trading in general, and Forex in particular. This month I took a look at a moving average indicator called the GMMA (Guppy Multiple Moving Average), and tried to come up with a profitable strategy, based on a few simples rules. ___________________________________________► Brief introduction into the GMMA indicator Even though this tool (developed by Australian trader Daryl Guppy) is not available in the Dukascopy jForex platform, you can easily apply it to your charts, because it simply consists of two groups of exponential moving averages (EMA). The faster averages are 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 and 15 EMA, while the slower ones are 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 60 EMA. The way you trade with the GMMA is not by the typical moving average crossover you would expect, but by analysing and interpreting the interaction between the two groups (for example, if the distance between them is compressing or expanding), and also among the different EMAs within each group. However, …

not good. Looking at the equity curve in your backtesting. Winning trades until around trade 60. Afterwards constant loss until trade 120. If the trades are evenly distributed over time, then you have made profit between 2003 and 2007. From 2007 onwards there were only losses t come. If you start today, you would have to expect a losing strategy.

A pharmacy has hundreds of different drugs to sell, but when a patient enters a pharmacy he will only go for the medicine prescribed to him. Trading Forex through technical indicators is very similar to this scenario: traders have “a lot” of technical indicators to trade with but only a few can be useful to them. In this article I will categories some technical indicators and try to cover some trading combinations which can be useful for traders who use a mix of indicators for trading. Following are the main categories of technical indicators. 1. Momentum Indicators The most common of all are momentum indicators. They tells us where the price is directed and how strong is the directional movement. However, they are also considered to be lagging indicators as the calculations behind these indicators are based on the recent history and continuation of trend after the indicator always have subjectivity. Moving averages, regression channels, classical divergences are a few momentum indicators. 2. Reversal Indicators The second are reversal indicators. They tells us of a reversal expectation after price has gone in a particular momentum. They are commonly based on the logic of over-b…

Over the last several weeks we have seen frequent gaps en excess of 30 pips on the open of the EUR/USD Sunday candle (Monday in Asia-Pacific trading).Although traders are well aware that price tends to try to close a gap, many have also found the gap trade to be illusive and an overall negative to their P/L.So how do we profit from the gap trade?No surprisingly, the answer is:  by studying and acting on past price behavior.In my case, this meant going back at least two years and studying the gaps ie. reviewing the size of the gap, the drawdown before closing the gap, etcAfter having analyzed several variables, I came to the follow conclusion:Assumption 1: Gap is minimum 20 pips at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday openAssumption 2: Your stop loss is always 2 times the size of the gap.Assumption 3: Your take profit is always the closing price of Friday's candleAssumption 4: You open the trade at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday.Result: Your take profit will get hit 85% of the times.It doesn't take a math wizard to figure out that over time this will add up to profits. It is not a tremendously profitable system - afterall we need 2 winners to compensate for each loss- but the statistics are quite reliable give…

CENTRAL BANKS & BIG PLAYERS (ZERO STOP LOSS)   Introduction   The year was 2005, the place, New York, big city of dreams. I began trading the USD because it started to devalue too much. 5 years of extreme and intensive trading lead to an equivalent of about 8 years of experience in forex trading. I spent an average of 12 hours per day in front of a tick chart and the 5 seconds chart. Analyzing, thinking, thousands of trials and errors, billions of seconds invested for no return or gain at all in the first years. It was all worth it. Compound interest growth of a well managed and well invested bank account could not compare to any business wealth on this earth. We can build skyscrapers with this. The sky is the limit. Enough history, let’s look at the present and get this money because you will soon realize that seconds are more precious than pips, no matter how much you win or how much your pip weighs. Let’s get this $$$, together in the same direction.   Conclusion   Central banks and “Big players” with big money manipulate the stock market and the currencies market. The best way to see it is through the seconds chart. Big 8 to 10 plus pip candles on the seconds chart …
