The ’’ADX indicator with slow MACD Trading system, is mainly designed for day

trading the 1 Hour chart. But it could also be used for swing –

weekly – trading the 4 hour chart.

It works with all currency pairs and in all – normal – market

conditions. We all know that price moves in Trends or

Sideways.

 

 

We are going to trade in the direction of the trend and stay out

of the market when it’s moving in sideways.

To do that, we are going to use 2 indicators.

A – MACD indicator :

Fast EMA : 25

Slow EMA : 99

MACD SMA : 45

B – ADX indicator :

Period 18.

Levels : 20 – 25 – 40.

 

 

System Rules

Sell Signal :

A - On 4 Hour Chart AND 1 Hour Chart

1 - MACD bars below 0 line.

happens.
