GBP/CHF Forex Trading Strategy

The GBP/CHF Forex trading strategy uses the clouds of the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo indicator to identify new market trends.

The timing indicator, which is part of this strategy is used as a trend confirmation tool.

When the timing indicator’s line is above the 50 level and rising, it means a bullish trend is commencing, while if the opposite happens, then it can be interpreted as the start of a bearish trend.

The GBP/CHF Forex trading strategy works for any trade style, including scalping, day trading and swing trading.
