58# High Five Trading System

Submit by Forexstrategiesresources

 

High Five strategy employs five simple moving averages to find a setup and a price move in the direction of the setup to define a trigger. The default value for the base moving average is five, and the next four averages are each twice the length of the previous average; thus, with a base average of five, the rest of the averages in the series are 10, 20, 40, and 80.

 (The rules for selling short are analogous to buying long; we'll just describe the rules for the long side of the market here.) A buy setup is in place when all five moving averages are greater than they were one bar ago. The entry trigger is a price move equal to the close plus 50% of the setup bar's range. In other words, when all five moving averages are rising at the close of the previous bar, we'll buy at that close plus half of the difference between the bar's high and low. We'll exit our long position on the next open when at least three of the moving averages are declining. As with many of our other strategies, the entry setup and the exit are based on similar conditions, but the exit is more sensitive than the entry. In High Five, we require all five moving averages to be rising for a buy setup, but only three of the averages to be declining to signal an exit.
