4# Without Volatility Trading System

Submit by Forexstrategiesresources

 

Without Volatility entries and exits occur in areas of congestion.

The ADX (Average Directional Index) will tell us when a market is in a congestion

phase. Then we'll wait for the market to reach a high or low extreme within the

congestion. When prices are low, we'll buy; when they're high, we'll sell short. Since we're betting that the market will continue to trade within its recent congestion area, we'll exit quickly rather than holding our position and trying to catch a new trend.

To define congestion, we require that ADX be less than 25 and less than it was 3 bars ago. To identify a low price within the congestion, we look for 3 consecutive down closes (closes below the previous bar's close); to identify a high price, we look for 3 consecutive up closes. We enter a long position on the third down-close and a short position on the third up-close. Our protective stop is set at 3 average true ranges (ATR's) from our entry price. Our exit is on the close a fixed number of bars after entry (3 bars is the default value).
