Let’s take a look at this simple system. Time frame chart: 1 hour or 15 minute chart. Indicators: 10 EMA, 25 EMA, 50 EMA. SELL in the direction of 10 EMA once it clearly makes it through 50 EMA. Just wait for the current price bar to close on the opposite site of 50 EMA.

Exit rules: option1: exit when 10 EMA crosses 25 EMA again. Advantages: it is easy to use, and it gives very good results when the market is trending, during big price break-outs and big price moves. Disadvantages: Fast moving average indicator is a follow-up indicator or it is also called a lagging indicator, which means it does not predict future market directions, but rather reflects current situation on the market.

Regarding the best setups, there are as many of them as probably traders trading Forex. The best way to know which setup will work for you is to test it. Experimenting with indicators can be fun!

You can tell when the market starts moving sideways by looking at EMAs: as the inclination disappears, a flat almost horizontal EMA pattern starts to emerge. While the market is trading sideways it does not make any new highs or new lows. You will be able to draw simple channel lines and watch the market trading inside that channel. A break out of the channel will re-establish a trending market mode.

Another important unclear issue for this system : Where do I set the stop loss? Submitted by Edward Revy on November 23, 2007 – 04:38. EMA stands for Exponential Moving Average.

It is a fast moving average, where more weight is given to the latest data. If it appears to be too far, then traders should use a fixed stop which would be individual for each case and will depend on a money management and trading approach chosen by a trader.
