THE METHODOLOGY

The trades that are shown here were developed from a Price Action-based strategy that uses the most accurate Candlestick Patterns and Signals of the Daily and 4 Hour Charts. These time frames provide more stable and reliable trading patterns and are thus more amenable to consistent profitability. Specific combinations of Chart Patterns and Signals on these charts have been found to continuously provide the most profitable trading opportunities across all Currency Pairs in the Forex Market. Once these signals are identified and traded within the context of established Rules and Parameters, larger rates of returns are more likely for all levels of traders.

In my 6 years of trading I have yet to make consistent profits from Day Trading. It was only when I switched to Swing Trading was I profitable. Spent most of this year developing a Methodology and now I am back trading Live using only the Daily and 4 Hour Charts. With almost 400 Pips from the last 6 trades, I am up 13.0%, with only 9 trades left for a 100% Return. The Demo Account here tracks my Live Dukascopy Account but is behind by 3 trades (https://www.myfxbook.com/members/DRFXTRADING/duane/1079693)

Given that most people believe that Day Trading is the way to go, I am curious to know what % Return from Swing Trading would convince you to switch to this style of trading?

Following a loss on the EUR CAD trade of 130 Pips...







... the Methodology bounced back with a 200 Pip Trade on the AUD NZD as the pair broke the Consolidation Range on its Daily Chart.







After a few days, the target was hit..







The sharp reversal that took place afterwards (market reaction to RBA Interest Rate Statement and Decision), confirmed the accuracy of this exit...






Main Highlights/Technical Theories of Trade;


- Consolidation Breakouts;
- Evening Star Bearish Signal;
- U-Turn Tests of Consolidation Boundaries;
- Obey Maximum Limit of Trade Targets;
- Swing Trading Tests your Patience, but the gains make it worthwhile in the end;
