This method requires precise execution and nimble trading.
Indicators to Be Used
In this trading strategy, the indicators that will be used are the 10 and 21 EMA, and the 50 SMA.
You should then open an ADX indicator in a different window set at 13.
At least 3 criteria must be satisfied for this trade.
EURUSD 5-minute timeframe - Two bullish signals are shown with the circles on the chart. Circles 1 show the first buy signal and circles 2 show the second buy signal. The small support trendline is shown as the dotted black line. The price action accurately reverses in the war zone and continues higher.
Trade Criteria to Be Satisfied for This Trading Strategy
- The first criterion is that the 50 SMA angle must be more than 20 degrees. The measurement does not need to be absolutely accurate, a subjective estimate is sufficient.
- The second criterion is that the price should pull back through the 10EMA to the 21EMA. The area between the 10EMA and the 21EMA is the fire or war zone.
- The third and final criterion for this trade is that the price must stay on the proper side of the small resistance or support line. You should draw a trend line from the last high or low prior to the cross of the 50SMA to the next high or low. This will form a small resistance or support line.
Trade Set up Rules
- The price and candles must all stay on the correct side of the small trend line. Otherwise, the possible trades will be canceled.
- Pullbacks of candles towards war zone must be smooth and flat.
- After identifying the first candle to enter the war zone, wait for the second candle to pullback from 21MA towards 10MA and then enter the trade on the pullback.
