500# IAB HTF Strategy

High Frequency Trading 

Submit by Benjamin de Vries 31/01/2016


This HFT strategy is a trend following system. Based on pullbacks and volatile markets.

Very accurate and very high RR ratio.

Time Frame: 1 minute only!

Financial Markets: volatile markets like GBP/JPY, EUR/JPY, GOLD, EUR/AUD, GBP/USD, EUR/NZD

Don't trade 20 minutes before and after high impact news

Be sure that you have low spreads (< 2 pips)


Metatrader Indicators (all non-repaint):

IAB Channel,

IAB Trend,

RSI (period 2, oversold level 15, overbought level 85)


Trading rules IAB HFT


- When IAB Trend changed from red to white

- When price entered in IAB Channel oversold area

- When RSI is/was oversold

- Then wait until the RSI closes in RSI overbought zone (>85)

- Price isn't in the IAB overbought zone

- Open buy on the open of the next candle



- When IAB Trend changed from white to red

- When price entered in IAB Channel overbought area

- When RSI is/was overbought

- Then wait until the RSI closes in RSI oversold zone (<15)

- Price isn't in the IAB oversold zone

- Open sell on the open of the next candle


Exit position

Mostly RR 1:20.

Stop loss is 1 pip above/below previous candle.

Target is 80 pips. Move SL to breakeven after 20 pips.

Move SL to +20 after 40 pips. Move SL to +40 after 60 pips until 80 pips is hit.



Don't trade every oppertunity in the same trend. If you filled your pocket in a trend by hitting the TP once, just

wait for the new trend change. No matter how many pips you earned. When greedy, it will fill your broker.


When using these rules, it will fill your bank ;-)

    Hey Ben, very nice and impressive strategy. I tried several hundreds of hft strategies but yours is very good Ben. Dared to trade live and with success. Do you recommend a specific pair and time? Do you have updates on indicators? Are you the same person from Odin Hedge traders group as well?? Thanks you

    Hey Ben,
    Thank you so much for your amazing work. I noticed the indicator doesn't allow us to change colors, width, or style in the properties. Once I change the timeframe or currency, it goes back to the default. Could you fix this by any chance?

    Also, will you be uploading your new version mentioned on the website as well? Thank you!

    Thanks for this great share man! I've tried it for 2 days nonstop. Today i tried it live. For the first time i tried a strategy live that actually delivers. As the author, i had the balls to use a big lot because of the low risk. I used 1 lot on the eurusd and chickened out at + 30 pip in profit. Next trade was gbpchf and made + 62 pip and wasn't chicken haha. Then i saw the latest post of the author and quit on + 92 pip profit today. I will use the exact same style and mm approach. Hopefully i will continue to make almost $ 900 a day!! So thanks dude!! You have earned my respect and appreciation and many others will follow. I'm sure about that!

    Me too believe that your own is a great system . But I think that the TP of 80 pips is a bit too much . 1M timeframe on Gbp/Jpy offers many possibilities of entries in a day , so we can satisfy for a more low target . For example : 4 trades per day with each 20 pips ( but "only trade the clear signals" as you said ) = 80 pips a day : with an appropriate MM and with compounding we make a lot of money .
    What do you think about it ?
    Thank you and compliments .
    Best regards ,

    Hi Ben , to reduce the ( few ) false signals of your very good system , what do you think to use the 15M timeframe as filter ? In other words, enter on 1M only in direction of IAB Trend indicator of 15M .
    Let me know , please .
