Currency Pairs: Majors 
Indicator:Pivot Points

Strategy 

Long Trades (see example below) 

1) The currency price must trade in the vicinity of the oversold S1 or S2 support level
2) Price isn't able to close below S1 or S2 (otherwise skip the trade).
3) Wait for the price to develop a bullish bias in the vicinity of S1 or S2
4) Now go long according to the bullish pattern's trading rules and place stop accordingly.
5) Target Profit five pips before the Pivot level

 

The EUR Dollar was not able to close below support1 (S1) on the chart. You could easily draw a falling trend line and wait for the price to close above the trend line, thus creating a bullish bias. This created a long trade entry at 1.4415 with stop loss 1,4395. and TP 1,4449.

    This strategy ties in sooooo well with human behavior in the markets, pivots are of course used by the big players, I am VERY excited about this strategy. I am going to write an EA this weekend based on this strategy and tie in some solid risk management principles. If you are interested to see how well it backtests just let me know - terry4715@gmail.com
    Thank you for providing this little piece to my puzzle, I am convinced this will pull in BIG monthly returns.
    Best,
    Terry
