Long Entry Rules

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

  • If the yellow 28 SMA Metatrader 4 forex indicator line crosses below the lines (dark violet & red) of the Turn_Area_Chart indicator in a bottom up fashion as shown on Fig. 1.0, the general market sentiment is said to be bullish i.e. a trigger to buy the designated currency pair.
  • If price opens and closes above the breakout-zones indicator boundaries as depicted on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be driven to the upside, as such a signal to go bullish on the forex pair of interest.

Stop Loss for Buy Entry: Set stop loss below the thick yellow support line.

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 running, the yellow line of the 28 SMA indicator intersects the lines (dark violet & red) of the Turn_Area_Chart custom indicator as illustrated on Fig. 1.0, bulls power is said to be diminishing, thus an exit or take profit stance is advised.
  • If price opens & closes below the lower boundary of the breakout-zones indicator while a bullish trend is running, bulls are said to be closing their positions increasingly, therefore an exit or take profit posture is duly recommended.

Sell Entry Rules

Enter a sell order if the following holds true:

  • If the yellow 28 SMA indicator line crosses above the lines (dark violet & red) of the Turn_Area_Chart custom indicator in a top downward manner as exemplified on Fig. 1.1, the overall market sentiment is said to be bearish, i.e. a trigger to sell the currency pair of focus.
  • If price opens and closes below the breakout-zones indicator boundaries (see Fig. 1.1), price is said to be pressured lower, thus a trigger to go short on the selected forex pair.

Stop Loss for Sell Entry: Set stop loss above the thick yellow support line.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit or take profit if the following takes center stage:

  • If the yellow line of the 28 SMA indicator intersects the lines (dark violet & red) of the Turn_Area_Chart custom indicator while a bearish trend is on course (refer to Fig. 1.1), more and more bears are said to be leaving the market, thus an exit or take profit stance will suffice.
  • If price opens & closes above the upper boundary of the breakout-zones indicator while a bearish trend is ongoing, bears are said to be closing their positions more and more, therefore an exit or take profit posture is duly advised.
