Default My simple trading strategy got me 923 pips in 2 weeks

Finally, after almost 3 years of trading I found a system that actually works!
A nice system I have been trading for 3 months.. gained me 50% on account so far :-)
It is based mainly on price movement, and the fact that prices like to retrace to trending moving average and bounce from it, creating strong movements.

Last 2 Weeks Results
GBPUSD: +212 pips
EURUSD: +712 pips

Examples of trades
Pictures with instructions can be seen here:

Charts
This system works on any charts; I prefer using it on 4H and 1H charts.
Be sure to backtest it before you try it on any other time frame.

Indicators
Only Bollinger(20)

Entry Rules
Entry is made after price bounces from Bollinger's Moving Average, when the Moving Average is trending (pointing up or down).
After price has bounced from MA (Created a bullish candle for long trades or bearish for short), place stop order 1 pip above the candle (for long) or below the candle (for short). Watch examples for clarifications.

Stop Loss
is 1 pip below low of the previous bar (for long trades), and 1 pip above high of previous bar + spread (for short trades).

Trailing Stop
This is what this system is all about.
Stop Loss is trailed to 1 pip below lowest low of last 4 bars (for long trades) and to 1 pip above highest high of last 4 bars (for short trades). Exits are done only by the trailing stop.

Money Management
I risk 2% of starting equity on each trade.

That's about it.
Enjoy and have a lot of pips!

Hi thanks for your system. Just to confirm entry. After a bullish or bearish candle (can we take this to be a pin bar or a bullish or bearish engulfing), do you place entry one pip above the high of this candle, once the new candle has opened?

Cheers

Thanks for posting your method. Simple is good if it works even a little bit. Have you tried it on smaller time frames?

Thanks.

But why the Bollinger Bands? Since the 2SD bars seem to serve no function, why not just use a 20 period moving average?

Be interesting to see a longer test period. One swallow doesn't make a summer.

Two good short trades on this method yesterday - USDCAD, and USDCHF rejected at the 20ma line. Currently around 100 pips each in profit. This method may be worth some more attention - not much interest here by the looks.

With the countless number of trading techniques that are available today, it is difficult to say which is better and which is no good. What is important for you as a trader is that you must feel comfortable with the trading strategy that you adopted. As the Oracle of Omaha Warren Buffet, use to say there are only two rules in investment. The foremost rule is “Never lose money” while the second rule is “Always remember the first rule”.

Thanks for a very useful info. I've tried to find any useful info about the same experience, but there was no good stuff. And not so long ago Iíve found some free soft archive from some expertís site or something like that. And you know what - it worth all my searching time. Saving your time Ė you can find it here
