Long Entry Rules

Initiate a buy entry if the following indicator or chart pattern gets put on display:

  • If the rectangular blue bars of the HAMA_ custom indicator aligns somewhat below the candlesticks as exemplified on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be pressured higher, thus a trigger to buy the selected forex pair.
  • If the blue and magenta histograms of the bbmacd custom indicator stay above the 0.00 horizontal level as depicted on Fig. 1.0, bulls are said to be driving sentiments, as such a buy alert is said to be looming.
  • If the green and red lines of the Relative Vigor Index Metatrader 4 forex indicator break and hover above the 0.00 reference level as illustrated on Fig. 1.0, bulls are said to be taking the initiative in the market i.e. a trigger to go long on the designated forex pair.

Stop Loss for Buy Entry: Place stop loss below short-term support.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Buy Entry

Exit or take profit if the following rules or conditions takes precedence:

  • If while a bullish trend is ongoing, the HAMA_ indicator pops up a red rectangular bar on the activity chart, more and more bulls are said to be exiting their positions, therefore an exit or take profit stance is highly recommended.
  • If the bbmacd custom indicator displays a magenta histogram below the 0.00 reference level while a bullish trend is running (see Fig. 1.0), bulls power is said to be weaning, hence a signal to exit or take profit immediately.
  • If the green line of the Relative Vigor Index forex indicator dips below the zero center level while a bullish trend is ongoing, a bearish reversal is said to be imminent, thus a trigger to exit or take profit without delay.

Sell Entry Rules

Enter a sell order if the following holds true:

  • If the rectangular red bars of the HAMA_ custom indicator aligns fairly above the candlesticks as shown on Fig. 1.1, price is said to be dragged lower, thus a trigger to go short on the currency pair of interest.
  • If the blue and magenta histograms of the bbmacd custom indicator stay below the 0.00 horizontal level as seen on Fig. 1.1, bears are said to be driving sentiments, as such a sell alert is said to be on the horizon.
  • If the green and red lines of the Relative Vigor Index indicator break and hover below the 0.00 horizontal level as demonstrated on Fig. 1.1, the market is said to be in favor of lower prices, thus a trigger to go short on the currency pair of focus.

Stop Loss for Sell Entry: Place stop loss above short-term resistance.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit or take profit if the following takes center stage:

  • If while a bearish trend is ongoing, the HAMA_ indicator pops up a blue rectangular bar on the activity chart (checkout Fig. 1.1), bears are said to be closing their positions increasingly, therefore an exit or take profit stance is advised.
  • If the bbmacd custom indicator displays a blue histogram above the 0.00 horizontal level while a bearish trend is ongoing, bears power is said to be halting, hence a signal to exit or take profit straightaway.
  • If the green line of the Relative Vigor Index forex indicator surges above the zero center level while a bearish trend is running, a bullish reversal is said to be in the offing, thus a trigger to exit or take profit at once.
