Trading Strategy Rules For Buy and Sell Trades Explained

Buy Entry

Enter a buy trade if the following trading conditions are met:

  1. If the lime line of the dma custom indicator crosses below the middle medium sea green line of the Bollinger Bands indicator as shown on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be taken higher i.e. a trigger to buy the stipulated currency pair.
  2. If the Directional momentum of average forex indicator turns deep sky blue within its window as shown on Fig. 1.0, the overall market sentiment is said to be bullish, as such a buy alert will suffice.

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

Suggested Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Buy Trade

Exit the buy trade if the following trading conditions are met:

  1. If while a bullish trend is running, the lime dma custom indicator line intersects the medium sea green line (refer to Fig. 1.0), bulls power is said to be weaning i.e. a trigger to exit or take profit forthwith.
  2. If the line of the Directional momentum of average indicator turns light salmon during the course of a bullish trend, it is pointing at weaning bulls power, therefore an exit or take profit will do.

Sell Entry

Open a sell trade if the following trading conditions are met:

  1. If the lime line of the dma custom indicator crosses above the middle medium sea green line of the Bollinger Bands indicator as seen on Fig. 1.1, price is said to be pressured lower i.e. a trigger to sell the designated forex pair.
  2. If the Directional momentum of average forex indicator line turns light salmon within its window as exemplified on Fig. 1.1, the general market sentiment is said to be bearish, as such a sell alert will do.

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

Suggested Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit the sell trade if the following trading conditions are met:

  1. If the lime dma custom indicator line intersects the middle medium sea green line while a bearish trend is ongoing as shown on Fig. 1.1, bears power is said to be halting i.e. a trigger to exit or take profit immediately.
  2. If the line of the Directional momentum of average indicator turns deep sky blue during the course of a bearish trend, it is signaling diminishing bears power, therefore an exit or take profit stance is recommended.
