As earlier mentioned, this strategy involves the use of moving average indicator only. The images below shows the indicator settings;
The first indicator is the 200 Simple Moving Average (200 SMA).
This is a very important moving average. Price respect this particular moving average a lot. Big traders use the 200 SMA as an important price barrier.
Basically, if price touches and bounces off the 200 SMA, a strong reversal may follow. On the other hand if price breaks the 200 SMA, the current trend may like continue.
The next indicator is the 50 Exponential Moving Average (50 EMA).
The 50 EMA is a good trend determinant. Scalpers uses the 50 EMA as minor price barrier.
The next indicator is the 30 Linear Weighted Moving Average (30 LWMA).
The 30 LWMA is the major focal point for this strategy. Whenever it crosses the 200 SMA (Major Cross), price usually retrace a bit, before continuing int the current direction.
This point of crossing is when the major trade is placed. You have your major BUY SIGNAL when 30 LWMA cross up on the 200 SMA.
The major SELL SIGNAL occurs when 30 LWMA cross down on the 200 SMA.
The next indicator is the 13 Linear Weighted Moving Average (13 LWMA).
The 13 LWMA is the minor signal pointer for this strategy. It defines a trend reversal point.
Whenever it crosses the 50 EMA (Minor Cross), price usually retrace a bit, before continuing in the direction of the new trend.
This point of crossing is when the minor trade (scalp trade) is placed. You have your minor BUY SIGNAL when 13 LWMA cross up on the 50 EMA.
The minor SELL SIGNAL occurs when 13 LWMA cross down on the 50 EMA.
The stop loss value for major signal is measured as 2X.
X is the pip height from the point where the Yellow line (30 LWMA) cross the Blue line (200 SMA) to the exact point where the Green line (50 EMA) is located.
The Major Cross occurs when the 30 LWMA (Yellow line) cross the 200 SMA (Blue line). We have two classes of major cross.
- Weak major cross and 2. Strong major cross.
Weak Major Cross:
A weak major cross usually occur during price range. However, due to consolidation of price, weak major cross may not yield good profit as price continually ranges with no particular direction.
Scalpers usually make profit by scalping the top and bottom of the range whenever a weak major cross occur.
Strong Major Cross:
A strong major cross usually leave price action patterns such as Head and Shoulder or Inverted Head and Shoulder in its trail.
Strong Major Crosses usually precede the continuation of a strong trend or the development of a major trend reversal.
Trading signals from Strong Major Crosses usually give reasonable profit as current trend grows stronger or new trends develop.
- Minor Cross should occur before the Major Cross for it to be a Strong Major Cross (go for the Strong Major Cross).
- Look a bit towards the left side of the chart after a Major Cross to identify any price pattern that looks like Head and Shoulder (or Inverted H & S) for confirmation.
- If there is no cross, do not take the trade.
- Scalp small profits on Minor Cross.
- Scalp reasonable profit on Major Cross or trail your profit.
- Always use Stop Loss for this strategy (there is no 100% perfect strategy).
