Amazing Crossover System - 100+ pips per day!

Greetings everyone,


I got the main concept for this system on another site. While I have made one important change, I must stress that the heart of this system was created by someone else! We must give credit where credit is due!


This system is incredibly simple yet unbelievably effective. If you properly follow the system, I strongly believe that you can easily gain 100+ pips per day with very few losing trades!

SYSTEM:

Indicators

5 EMA – YELLOW
10 EMA – RED
RSI (10 - Apply to Median Price: HL/2) – One level at 50.

TIME FRAME

1 Hour Only (very important!)

VIEW

Zoom in quite a bit on your chart so that the candlesticks and EMA’s are very large. I use Alpari and this translates into the penultimate (one just previous of the highest) magnification.

PAIRS

Virtually any pair seems to work as this is strictly technical analysis.

I recommend sticking to the main currencies and avoiding cross currencies (just my preference).

WHEN TO ENTER A TRADE

Enter LONG when the Yellow EMA crosses the Red EMA from underneath.
RSI must be approaching 50 from the BOTTOM and cross 50 to warrant entry.

Enter SHORT when the Yellow EMA crosses the Red EMA from the top.
RSI must be approaching 50 from the TOP and cross 50 to warrant entry.

I’ve attached a picture which demonstrates all these conditions.

That’s it!

WHEN TO EXIT

This depends on your trading plan (everybody should have a plan) and money management rules.

Just by glancing at some recent data, the average hourly trend seems to extend beyond 100 pips before reversing.

I recommend setting a T/P between 50 - 100 pips.

S/L should provide plenty of cushion. Most trades will be winners in the long-term, but I’m uncertain of an exact win-lose ratio. Experimentation will yield the best results. I’d start with a S/L of 100 pips.

Remember to always protect your capital. Once the trade moves in your favor by 20 pips, I’d set your S/L to break even. After 40 pips, set your S/L to 20 pips profit, etc.

Of course, you could omit any initial S/L and trade with a smaller contract size to provide plenty of margin, and THEN once the trade moves in your favor set a break even S/L, but that’s RISKY (but maybe you are a daredevil ;))!

NOTES

Always move your S/L after you are in profit so that you break even.

Aim for 50 - 100 pips per trade.

ONLY USE THE 1 HOUR CHART! DO NOT GO LOWER!

Make sure both the EMA’s cross AND the RSI is crossing 50 in the direction of your trade.

When you get both of these signals, you can enter a trade with confidence because these are VERY STRONG SIGNALS. It is incredibly effective at catching the trend for 100+ pips!

I will try my best to test this system and post the results continuously for everyone.

ENJOY!

Greetings everyone,

Sometimes when we look at our charts, we seem to have this GUT FEELING about where the price is headed.

Maybe your indicators are not quite giving you the signal to enter just yet, but it seems DESTINED to happen very soon.

It is during times like these where you bend the rules of your system a little bit.

I’m going to post a picture below which just developed on the USD/JPY 1 Hour chart.

It shows you exactly why doing this is WRONG WRONG WRONG!

Take a look and remember: Wait for BOTH SIGNALS!

Possible Trade forming on the EUR/USD.

TF = 1 HOUR

If RSI crosses into < 50, SELL with T/P = 50 pips.

Greetings,

I wanted to discuss a recurring pattern I have noticed with many Moving Average Systems. Let’s call them “repulsions”.

Repulsions occur when one smaller moving average attempts to cross a larger moving average, but is rejected in the process (see picture below).

When repulsions occur, we can view them on our RSI indicator, also. They form a sort of “V” symbol.

This action warrants an entry in the appropriate direction. Granted, this entry is a little more risky, so I’d wait for the next candle to close before entering.

Repulsions can be your signal the current trend will last for a long time. You can generally bank a good number of pips simply by watching for the “V” symbol on your RSI.

I find this pattern holds up best on the standard currencies.

Thanks,

Hi ForexPhantom,

I have to say that this is a simple system and it does work well. Trading should be as simple as something like that.

But how do you handle the whipsaws shown in the attachment? What I suggest is maybe you can add one more indicator e.g pivot. So when the price is only 50 to 80 pips away from the pivot, then we do not take in the trading signal.

From my experience, I believe setting 20 pips to breakeven after it has moved in your direction may not be enough some times as the price movement may be very volatile. I suggest 30 - 35 pips to shift to breakeven after the trade has moved to your direction.

You mentioned that you have a S/L of 100 pips. Maybe you can consider a good risk to reward ratio of at least 1:2, and therefore reduce the S/L. Money management is real important in any trading system. :slight_smile:

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Regards,
Dan

Hi Dan,

I don’t want to speak for ForexPhantom, but I’d like to offer my two cents on your thoughts about those whipsaws…

The first one is on Friday a few hours before things shut down for the weekend. Trading the H1 chart on Fridays can be dangerous for any system.

The second whipsaw corresponds to the EU interest rate decision at 12:45 GMT. That is a major release and no system can keep you out of that bad trade. However, after things settle down, a sell signal occurs on the very next candle that would have netted you around 100 pips.

I think the system looks pretty good with some other rules applied to keep you out of those whipsaws you pointed out.

Dan, I am with you.

The first thing I thought about when seeing this system was just that, adding some of the pivots, Barrys Support and previous day hi/low/close to try and understand where the price is headed.

Take for instance the current EU move. We had and EMA Cross around 7am GMT, then the RSI at the close of the 8am, which happened to be right at the daily pivot point…Now If you look, the price went straight to the S1, passed a little bit and is currently reversing back.

By using the “well known targets” as guides to your TP Sure it wasnt 100 pips, but it would have been 90. You could then use these as your profit taking and S/L areas.

The system itself is still easy, but by adding a little more market logic to try and understand where to T/P people would not feel like they are shooting in the dark for Profit and Loss.

I have to agree with John about those whipsaws. Trading during the News is always a very VOLATILE experience, as well as trading on Friday!

The beauty of this system is in its simplicity. It is deceptively simple, yet the signals are strong. I don’t think whipsaws should pose much of a problem during normal trading times.

BUT, if pivot points help you out, by all means USE THEM! I personally don’t know much about pivot points, so I’m sort of lacking on any discussion about them.

I did add one other indicator, which I’ll describe in my next post.

Thanks for your interest in the system!!

Greetings everyone,

Last night was a great night to be using this system.

Unfortunately, all the action happened while I was sleeping!

But, I had been lucky enough to take a slight risk that paid off big time.

In an earlier post, I posted a picture of a possible trade setting up on the EUR/USD. The EMA’s were close to crossing and the RSI was descending and hovering around the 50 Line.

I set a SELL STOP order at 1.2585. This was around 20 - 25 pips lower than the current price at the time (not sure exactly, but around there).

I figured that if the price went down that much, the lines WOULD have crossed and the RSI WOULD have crossed below 50.

In short, I was right! My SELL STOP was executed while I was counting sheep. My T/P was hit for 50 pips even. I had used a S/L of 100, too.

Below, I’ll post the pictures of how it all went down. You’ll notice that in the second picture I have added the MACD indicator.

Here are the settings I use:

MACD
FAST: 5
SLOW: 9
MACD SMA: 4

I’ve noticed that this indicator only works about 75% of the time. Sometimes it’s late! Sometimes it does not agree with the RSI.

I think it’s only very accurate if it crosses from the top of the indicator bar to the bottom (with a big downward slope). It can provide justification though if both the EMA’s and RSI are showing a trade setup.

The MACD settings may need to be tweaked.

PICTURE 1 shows the possible setup approaching.
PICTURE 2 shows what actually happened.

The rest of the pictures will show you trades that all took place overnight that we all missed! We had literally a handful of viable trades.

Perhaps the best time to trade is during the night, after midnight?

Anyways, I’ll describe in another post a possible way to benefit from this.

Stay tuned.

Account Statistics:

Hello everyone,

This trade occurred earlier this morning and would have bagged you some serious pips had you spotted it.

All the stars lined up on this one, as the EMA’s crossed, RSI crossed and MACD crossed…all in-sync.

Total movement in pips was 100+ downwards on the EUR/JPY at about 8:45 this morning.

Greetings,

Keep your eye on the GBP/USD as there is a potential trade setting up.

Be cautious though!!

The EMA’s look like they may cross, but the RSI and MACD show no signs of playing ball.

Something to watch for!

Greetings,

I’ve just sold the USD/CHF @ 1.1727.

S/L = 75 pips
T/P = 50 pips

Lot Size = .1

The EMA’s crossed slightly and the RSI crossed. MACD reversed and is crossing, also.

Time to grab lunch and see if my trade will go anywhere when I return.

Thanks,

Greetings,

Just a quick update. I’ve returned from lunch to find that my trade has moved +20 pips in my favor!

I’ve adjusted my stop/loss so that I’m guaranteed +5 pips.

I’m now not risking ANY of my own capital and simply riding the train.

I’m a little under halfway to my T/P target and it’s been about an hour since I first placed the order.

I’ll keep you posted!

Also, please note that I am avoiding (right now) placing multiple orders at once.

Thus, I am not watching any of the other charts at this moment in time.

Hello everyone,

Two things:

  1. The USD/CHF trade that I placed experienced some retracement. I was trailing my S/L a bit and it ended up being hit. I gained +32 pips.

ACCOUNT STATISTICS:

Starting Balance: 1,000
Current Balance: 1,077
Total Pips Earned: +82
Number of Trades: 2
Equity Change: 7.7%


  1. Watch out for repulsion on the EUR/USD and the GBP/USD.

I’ll be testing this system for quite some time.

If anyone has any thoughts or questions, please post.

Thanks,

Hello ForexPhantom

I see the gbp and eur cross have maybe frizzeled out

Thanks for sharing your system, Have you tested it on a daily charts yet?

Greetings,

Thanks for your comment. Indeed, those two trades seemed to have vanished before our eyes. Luckily we didn’t enter due to our assumptions or else we would have been swiftly punished.

I have only just begun to test this system using the hourly chart. It would seem to work very well on both the 4 HOUR and Daily charts, just by glancing at it.

Of course, playing with bigger time charts means you need to adjust your S/L and T/P.

The average pip movement on the 4 HR and Daily charts seems to be in the 200 - 1500 range!! That’s incredible, certainly.

While that initially gives me a very warm and fuzzy feeling all over, you have to be wary about certain things. First, the S/L is gonna need to allow for more cushioning, naturally. This means you may be risking too much of your account on one trade. Of course, you can opt to not set a S/L, use a small lot size, and hope for the best. :smiley:

Also, don’t forget about swap charges. If you are gonna trade the daily chart, you may be holding a position for weeks. That can add up quickly if it’s a negative swap pair.

I think experimentation would provide us with our answer. I certainly like the appeal of placing a half a dozen trades per month and banking in thousands of pips with little effort.

In short, I’m not sure. I urge you to test this out for all of us. You may indeed find that the 4 HOUR or Daily charts are better.

Thanks for your great question.

I forgot to mention that this largely depends on your trading style, as well.

Some people abhor the idea of sitting in front of the charts all day, while others love to be trading “in the moment”.

It’s a matter of personal taste.

I like to watch the markets unfold. I don’t like the idea of placing a trade and letting it sit for an extended period of time with no supervision.

Take care,

Greetings,

Let me start with a simple question: Do you like paying bills every month?

I certainly don’t. I’d be willing to bet that you don’t either. Nobody does. That is your hard earned money going off in 20 different directions. The worst part of all is that it’s usually for necessities – things in life you couldn’t go without, such as gas, electricity, etc. The funny thing about that is that nobody appreciates those commodities. How many of you wake up each morning, flip the light switch, and feel truly blessed because you’ve got a running current into your home??

My point is that bills pile up quickly each month regardless of whether or not you even enjoy or appreciate the services you are paying for. That is, of course, until they are taken away from you (such as when the electric goes out temporarily due to a storm).

When we go out to eat or buy a new plasma TV, we feel an immediate reward. Our money seems to be well spent. We get satisfaction out of things like food and entertainment. Bills are just sort of there…staring back at you in that mundane fashion.

I’m digressing.

This post is about how you can play the Forex game very conservatively, with very little risk to you, and still manage to earn enough income to pay most of your bills each month.

Think of this as simply free money that can go towards your phone bill, cable, internet, electric, etc.

We all know that the Forex market is the most liquid and profitable market in the world. The stock market cannot compare with the Forex market in this realm. Look below:

Typical YEARLY gains in the stock market range from 8 - 14% (give or take).
With Forex, you could make DOUBLE that rate of return MONTHLY.

Many claim that Forex is too risky. Not necessarily true! It can be very volatile, but that volatility dissipates as you use the larger time frames. In economic times like these, I have more confidence in the forex market than the stock market, personally.

Anyways, back to paying your bills!

The idea could simply be this:

Set up a special Forex account with $1,000. The goal of this account will be to earn you around $1,000 - $3,000 dollars / MONTH, with very little risk.

Use the AMAZING CROSSOVER SYSTEM posted here.
Use the 1 HR time frame.
Trade with a .1 lot size.
Aim for 50 - 100 pips with each trade.
S/L should be 50 - 100 pips.
Trade 1 - 2 pairs daily.

This system is very accurate and will produce a lot of winners with few losers.

Even if you have a loser, it is highly unlikely that any trade will turn on you by 750+ pips!! The S/L will protect you from that, but even that should not be hit often.

If you can place 1 - 2 trades daily and each trade can make you 50 - 100 pips, you will be averaging 1,000 - 2,000 pips monthly.

That translates into an extra $1,000 - $2,000 extra in your pocket with very little risk.

As your account grows, you can slightly increase your lot size. Or you may choose to just aim for a few thousand dollars a month to JUST PAY YOUR BILLS.

This would also be a nice way to eliminate debt.

Just a nice simple conservative trading account to help you each month.

Just a thought! :wink:

Greetings everyone,

The EUR/USD and GBP/USD are playing cat and mouse with us.

They have been toying with the notion of making a crossover for quite some time now.

I’m a little worried because it’s near the end of the business day and we all know that Friday is a crazy day for Forex!!

See the charts below.

Any insight is welcome.
