Very Successful Overbought/Oversold Forex Daily Trading Strategy

The daily timeframe gives an opportunity for longer-term traders to profit from the Forex market. The following strategy is to be used on the daily chart only, on which it can generate great trading opportunities and profits.

Since it is based on a relatively large timeframe, patience will be needed when trading this strategy as not many trades will be generated compared to trading strategies based on smaller timeframes. The advantage is that the strategy is very simple and almost anyone can use it to take trades and profit with it.

It consists of several simple rules which when followed will provide good trades and offer the potential for profit. It’s recommended to use it on the major pairs only because chart patterns work better due to the good liquidity and volume on these currency pairs. The strategy can be enhanced by combining it with other tools and indicators as we shall see later in this article.

Four trades that were generated by this strategy are shown on the chart below.

The vertical lines indicate the generated trades with this strategy from entry to exit (marked as “LONG” and “SHORT” on the chart) – EURUSD Daily Timeframe

Indicators to be used:

  • Bollinger Bands with standard settings (Blue lines on the chart) –Period – 20, Standard Deviation – 2

The Stochastic oscillator can also be used to get an additional perspective on the momentum in the market but is not necessary for this strategy. A “nice” bullish or bearish crossover from inside the oversold or overbought area on the Stochastic can be additional confirmation that a trade setup is a good opportunity to buy or sell.

Trading conditions of the strategy:

Long trade entry:

  • Wait for FxTR overbought/oversold indicator to fall in the oversold area and the line to turn green – this is an indication that buying opportunities will probably exist

Long trade stop loss:

  • Place the stop below the bullish reversal pattern

Long trade exit and targets:

  • 1st target - the middle line of the Bollinger Bands indicator

The chart below shows an example of a long trade taken with this Forex strategy

The two sections indicated by the vertical lines on the chart show two buy trades that were generated with this Forex strategy – GBPUSD Daily timeframe

Short trade entry:

  • Wait for FxTR overbought/oversold indicator to enter the overbought area and the line to turn red – indicating that we should look for bearish trading opportunities

Short trade stop loss:

  • Place the stop above the bearish reversal pattern

Short trade exit:

  • 1st target - the middle line of the Bollinger Bands indicator
  • 2nd target – the opposite end of the Bollinger Bands indicator (lower line)

Here’s an example of a short trade:

The section between the two vertical lines show a sell trade generated by this strategy – USDJPY Daily Timeframe

Things to keep in mind when trading with this Forex strategy:

  • Since this strategy is based on the daily timeframe it will need relatively larger capital due to the usual size of the stops. This has to be taken into consideration from a risk management perspective.
  • During strong trends in the market, the price can take a path of “walking the bands”. This can occur either with the upper or lower Bollinger Band and essentially, the price doesn’t reverse even though it stays at the Bollinger Bands for several trading sessions in a row. Such situations can be the cause for unprofitable trades with this strategy, however, even in such cases of “waling the bands”, the probability that a reversal candlestick pattern will form during a strong trend is very low, so essentially this is the advantage of the strategy. Thus, when a reversal pattern does actually form at one of the Bands, it will likely be followed by at least a few more candles of consolidation if not a full reversal.
  • The Bollinger Band is a dynamic indicator, so this is an aspect that must be taken into account. That is, the distance to the profit targets will change with every new bar, so that means that the profit targets should be updated accordingly. Sometimes this may result in trades with very small to near breakeven profit or no profit at all. What is important, however, is that the signals generated with this strategy accurately predict tops and bottoms, so in most cases, the trades will offer nice profits.

Thanks to this the strategy provides superior predictions that result in regular profits in the hundreds of pips.

Price Action – enter with the third bump!
Currency pairs are among the most traded markets in the world today and there are many followers for each pair. But there are also opponents, which is why each currency pair has evolved differently over time. Of course, it is not only traders who influence the different developments, but also countries, banks and many other institutions. In addition to the fact that currency pairs develop quite differently in many cases, there are also situations in which they behave very similarly, and we will discuss one of these here today.

GIMMEE Bar Reversal System: Fx Trading Strategy for Sideways Markets
The GIMMEE trading system can be especially effective if used in conjunction with other indicators and tools like we are going to show below. Although it is not necessary to use these additional tools, they should help to increase the probabilities for making a profitable trade. A GIMMEE bar is defined as one that pierces the upper or lower Bollinger Band but doesn’t break it and then instead retraces off it. You can see this candle formation in the charts below, where we show trade examples with this strategy. Next, as soon as such a GIMMEE bar appears, we take its height (the distance between its high and low) and note these levels. In the bullish case, we are looking for a breakout above the high of the GIMMEE bar, while for short (bearish) setups, we are looking for a breakout below the GIMMEE bar’s low. The other level you took note of is the stop loss for the trade.
