Entry Rules

Entry is only on trending markets. Avoid entry when sideaw. Look at the picture above, from the left side you can see a flat price range (sideaway), usually when the sideaway often produces false signals.


The entry signal is when the MA 7 and MA 24 cross. For example, when the MA 7 is below the MA 24, it is a sell signal, and the entry is sell when the price retraces upwards and touches MA7 with a stop loss above the previous swing. Conversely, when MA 7 is above MA 24 then it is a buy opportunity and place a buy order when the price retraces down to touch MA 7 with a stop loss below the previous swing. Entry can be single or multiple times (layer / averaging).

Maybe readers who are still newbies don't know what swing is? Swing is the previous high corner price when the trend is bearish and the previous corner low price when the trend is bullish. If you use the example image above, here are the swings:
