Long Entry Rules

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

  • If the lime candles of the ADX Candles custom indicator show up on the activity chart as seen on Fig. 1.0, the overall market sentiment is said to be bullish, hence a buy alert will do.
  • If the light blue Big Trend indicator line runs fairly below the candlesticks as shown on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be pressured higher, hence a trigger to go long on the stipulated currency pair.
  • If the magenta Money Flow Index Metatrader 4 indicator line breaks above the 50.00 horizontal level as depicted on Fig. 1.0, bulls are said to be driving price higher, thus a signal to buy the forex pair of interest.

Stop Loss for Buy Entry: Place stop loss below previous swing low 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 ADX Candles indicator pops up a red candle on the price chart, it is pointing to weaning bulls power, hence an exit or take profit stance will suffice.
  • If the line of the Big Trend indicator reverts to tomato while a bullish trend is running, bulls power is said to be halting i.e. a trigger to exit or take profit forthwith.
  • If the magenta line of the Money Flow Index indicator dips below the 50.00 horizontal level while a bullish trend is on course (see Fig. 1.0), a bearish reversal is said to be looming, thus a trigger to exit or take profit straightaway.

Sell Entry Rules

Enter a sell order if the following holds true:

  • If the red candles of the ADX Candles custom indicator get displayed on the price chart as illustrated on Fig. 1.1, bears are said to be driving sentiment i.e. a sell alert is duly recommended.
  • If the tomato Big Trend indicator line runs somewhat above the candlesticks as exemplified on Fig. 1.1, price is said to be dragged lower, as such a signal to go short is apt.
  • If the magenta Money Flow Index indicator line breaks below the 50.00 reference level as demonstrated on Fig. 1.1, bears are said to be pushing price lower, thus a trigger to sell the currency pair of focus.

Stop Loss for Sell Entry: Place stop loss above previous swing high resistance.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit or take profit if the following takes center stage:

  • If the ADX Candles indicator pops up a lime candle on the price chart (checkout Fig. 1.1), it is signaling diminishing bears power, hence an exit or take profit stance will do.
  • If the line of the Big Trend indicator changes to light blue during the course of a bearish trend, bears are said to be closing their positions increasingly, thus an exit or take profit stance is advised.
  • If the magenta line of the Money Flow Index indicator surges above the 50.00 horizontal level while a bearish trend ongoing, a bullish reversal is said to be coming up, thus a trigger to exit or take profit without delay.
