Schaff Trend Cycle with Slow Stochastic
Submit by Mendel 27/01/2015
STC Trading System is a momentum trend fx strategy based on the Schaff Trend Cycle with Slow Stochastic.
The Stochastic and STC indicators provide you with information on both long‐and short‐term market direction. Together they present a rolling estimate of the market direction on a daily chart while maintaining the shorter term characteristics of hourly price movement. “The trend is our friend.”
Consequently, the combination of these two indicators is ideal for this approach to trading the Forex, as we are usually trading in the direction of the dominant trend. However, there are times when you can trade against the trend, taking advantage of a retracement or probable change in market direction.
