With the start of the trading week on Monday, find the Friday candle.
On a 4H chart find the high and low of the Friday candle.
- Set BUY STOP order 10 pips above the high.
- Set SELL STOP order 10 pips below the low.
- For long trades the SL is the Friday candle low.
- For short trades the SL is the Friday candle high.
- Set SL to break even once your profit has reached 2x your SL.
So if the SL is 32 pips, you should set trailing stop of 64 pips.
- Your TP is the weekly ATR (14) Value (every 1000 = 10 pips).
- You should cancel one order or both orders if one of the following happened:
o If none of the trades was taken until the end of the US session at the Next

Don't get scarred from the example above, it's actually very simple.
Once we have found the Friday's candle, we set one buy stop order 10 pips above the

For the buy stop order we set the SL at the candle's low and for the sell stop order we
set the SL at the candle's high (Red dotted lines).
For the buy stop order we set the TP like the Weekly ATR(14) value, same for the sell
stop order (light blue lines) – the Weekly ATR(14) value was about 3100 so it's 31
pips of TP.
