Forex Kiss Strategy

The vast majority of successful traders deploy clean charts with a few supporting technical indicators, rather than a complicated chart with an overlay of colorful indicators.

Kiss is an acronym for Keep It Simple Stupid.

The Forex Kiss strategy is an indicator-based system that exploits just 3 basic indicators.

They are accompanied by a set of easy buy/sell trend-following rules which are eventually enough to make many profitable trades on any currency pair.

This strategy suits beginners as well as experienced traders worldwide.

About The Forex Technical Indicators Used

The Envelopes forex indicator is a technical tool that tries to spot the upper and lower bands of a trading range.

The Kijun_sen_and_envelope custom indicator is an important member of the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo indicator family and can be used to identify profitable trends.

The Laguerre RSI oscillator is a brainchild of John Ehlers and it represents a technique used to “warp” ” the time coefficients of a regular EMA filter, thereby resulting in a quicker response.
