Trading rules

Enter a short position when the price crosses the upper red band, reaching at least halfway to the orange band (preferably reaching the yellow band, although not always the case). Anticipate a retracement towards the center of the Bollinger Bands, aiming to profit from this retracement.
Similar to selling, wait for the price to range between the lower red and yellow bands. Trade the retracement towards the center of the Bollinger Bands.
Profit Exit:
Take profit at 5 to 10 pips, or exit at the middle band.
Stop Loss:
Implement two types of stops - time-based and loss-based.
Time-Based Stop:
Estimate how long it should take for the market to move in the expected direction. If the planned time has elapsed, close the order to avoid waiting for potential losses.
Loss-Based Stop:
Given the tight time frames, set very tight stops. In some instances, a quick 3-minute trade may not allow for a conventional stop loss. Rely on your money management system to determine appropriate stops.
Note: It is crucial to thoroughly test and validate any trading strategy in a simulated environment before applying it to live trading. Additionally, strict adherence to risk management principles is recommended for successful and sustainable trading.
