4 Years Old Strategy - 6-8% Average Monthly Returns with Manual Grid Trading in Trading Systems_xx New!
The strategy is a manual grid strategy and occassionally an EA. While it has traded exotic and EM pairs profitably in the past it only trades major and minor forex pairs now to reduce the cost of SWAPS and the inherent political/geographic/economic uncertainty around many exotic/EM pairs. When markets are overbought or close to overbought trades are opened counter-trend. When profit targets are hit trades are closed. If the market continues to move against the initial position then a second trade is opened based on candlestick price action and how the market is trading/pending news etc. Up to 12 positions maybe opened.

When markets are oversold or close to oversold trades are opened counter-trend. When profit targets are hit trades are closed. If the market continues to move against the initial position then a second trade is opened based on candlestick price action and how the market is trading/pending news etc. Up to 12 positions may be opened.

Risk control is achieved through position sizing. Position sizing MUST be the most important feature of the strategy because there is no hard stop loss and no hedging. People will often happily accept extraordinary profits and only query the strategy when they experience a stressful drawdown in their own account even while the master account remains quite safe. This is because they have failed to understand how crucial position sizing is for the strategy.
