5 Minute Forex Scalping System With SMA 200

The 5-minute Forex scalping system with SMA 200 is a trend-seeking strategy that implements a key technical indicator (200 period SMA), in determining the overall market trend with 80% accuracy.

As long as the price of the forex pair remains above the 200-period SMA, it is considered a bullish trend.

Conversely, the market is tagged bearish when price stays below the 200-period SMA.

The inclusion of other technical indicators to the 200-period SMA yields a strategy that’s overly sensitive to the direction of the market.

The strategy has shown impressive trading results for both long- and short-term market signals.

About The Forex Technical Indicators Used

The 200 SMA (Simple Moving Average) is a technical analysis indicator that smoothens out currency pair price data by constantly creating an updated average price over the last 200 periods.

The chanel scalper is a trend indicator that paints an orange (bullish trigger) line below price bars and a yellow (bearish trend) line above price bars to depict market trends.

The Coppock MT4 indicator is a technical study that is built on three different Moving Averages i.e. Exponential, Linear Weighted, and the Simple Moving Averages.
