Simple Price Based Trading System

Simple Price Based Forex trading system — an interesting system that was developed by one of the Forex traders recently. It works for any pair (though, EUR/USD is recommended) and in all market conditions. No indicators are required to trade using this system. All you need is the ability to set up the pending orders.

Features

  • Position-based trading for any state of the market.
  • Trailing stop protects profit.
  • Lack of statistical proof.

How to Trade?

  1. Higher timeframe chart is recommended as each trading setup requires some calculations based on the latest bar.
  2. Key number should be calculated first. It's based on the current price. For the quotes with 4 digits after a dot the key value is the current price multiplied by 10 and then rounded. For the quotes with 2 digits after a dot the key value is the current price divided by 10 and the rounded.
  3. Place pending Buy order at Current Price + (2 × Key value).
  4. Place pending Sell order at Current Price − (2 × Key value).
  5. Place stop-loss for pending Buy order at Open Price − (2 × Key value).
  6. Place stop-loss for pending Sell order at Open Price + (2 × Key value).
  7. Take-profit for both orders is calculated similarly to the key value but the current price should be multiplied by 100 for the quotes with 4 digits after a dot and shouldn't be divided for the quotes with 2 digits after a dot. In both cases the values should be rounded.
  8. Trailing stop is also applied to the orders and is set to 2.5 × Key value.
  9. Don't forget to cancel the untriggered orders after the timeframe period ends.
  10. If this sounds too complicated, see the example below.

Example

Simple Price Based Trading System Example Chart

Let's calculate the entry conditions and parameters for an example presented on the chart:

  1. It's a EUR/USD H4 chart.
  2. The current price is 1.1202, the current bar's open price is 1.1209.
  3. There are 4 digits after a dot in the quotes for EUR/USD. That means that the Key value is calculated as 1.1202 × 10 = 11.2. Rounding it results in 11 pips.
  4. Pending Buy order level is calculated as 1.1202 + (2 × 11) = 1.1224.
  5. Pending Sell order level is calculated as 1.1202 − (2 × 11) = 1.1180.
  6. Stop-loss for pending Buy order is calculated as 1.1209 − (2 × 11) = 1.1187.
  7. Stop-loss for pending Sell order is calculated as 1.1209 + (2 × 11) = 1.1231.
  8. Take-profit for all pending orders is calculated as 1.1202 × 100 = 112.0 or, after rounding, 112 pips.
  9. Take-profit for pending Buy order is set to 1.1224 + 112 = 1.1336.
  10. Take-profit for pending Sell order is set to 1.1180 − 112 = 1.1068.
  11. Trailing stop for both orders is set to 2.5 × 11 = 27.5 or, after rounding, 28 pips.
