Forex Sessions Trading System

The Forex Sessions trading system is a profitable trading system that is wrapped around the Tokyo, Frankfurt and New York trading hours.

We’ll be gauging these sessions as a determinant for our buy/sell forex trading signals.

Most importantly, the core of this system is to watch the open and close of the Tokyo session (our first session), and use the information alongside other technical tools to forecast the market.

This forex system will help you determine when the most suitable sessions of the day are okay to trade.

It essentially breaks up trading into three important sessions as earlier stated.

Lets puts things into perspective using our well-groomed system.

Strategy

Long Entry Rules

Enter a bullish trade if the following indicator or chart pattern gets put on display:

  1. If price closes higher during the Tokyo session (denoted by the light green colored section on the activity chart) as indicated on Fig. 1.0, we can go bullish on the open of the Frankfurt session.
  2. If the green dotted sienna line of the var-moving-average Metatrader 4 forex indicator pops up at the open of the Frankfurt session (see Fig. 1.0), price is said to be driven to the upside i.e. a trigger to go bullish on the desired forex pair.
  3. If the blue histograms of the tsv-bullish-bearish indicator pops up within the indicator window as depicted on Fig. 1.0, price is said to be pressured higher i.e. a trigger to go long on the selected forex pair.

Stop Loss for Buy Entry: Place stop loss below session box support.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Buy Entry

Exit or take profit from all trades if the following rules or conditions takes precedence:

  1. If the var-moving-average indicator pops up a red dot on its sienna line while a bullish trend is ongoing, bulls power is said to be diminishing, therefore an exit or take profit is advised.
  2. If a red histogram pops up within the indicator window during the course of a bullish trend, bulls power is said to be weaning, hence an exit or take profit will suffice.

Sell Entry Rules

Go short if the following setups gets displayed rightly on the activity chart:

  1. If price closes lower during the Tokyo session (denoted by the light green colored section on the activity chart) as shown on Fig. 1.1, we can open sell positions on the open of the Frankfurt session.
  2. If the red dotted sienna line of the var-moving-average Metatrader 4 forex indicator pops up at the open of the Frankfurt session (see Fig. 1.1), price is said to be pushed lower i.e. a trigger to go bearish on the designated currency pair.
  3. If the red histograms of the tsv-bullish-bearish indicator pops up within the indicator window as exemplified on Fig. 1.1, price is said to be pressured lower i.e. a trigger to go short on the forex pair of interest.

Stop Loss for Sell Entry: Place stop loss above session box resistance.

Exit Strategy/Take Profit for Sell Entry

Exit or take profit if the following takes center stage:

  1. If the var-moving-average indicator pops up a green dot on its sienna line while a bearish trend is running, bears power is said to be halting, therefore an exit or take profit is recommended.
  2. If a blue histogram pops up within the indicator window during the course of a bearish trend, more bears are said to be exiting their positions in the market, hence an exit or take profit stance will do.
