Support and Resistance Forex trading strategy — is a widely used trading system based on the horizontal levels of support and resistance. These levels are formed by the candlesticks' highs and lows. A break-through of these levels after a period of consolidation gives a signal for a trend. This strategy doesn't require any chart indicators except for the ability to draw lines (at least imaginary).
A period of consolidation is clearly seen on both example charts. In both cases the support/resistance level is formed by two candles on a rather short period. Stop-loss is placed close to the entry level. Take-profit couldn't be clearly set at the position entry moment, but a risk/reward ratio of not less than 1:2 could be used easily. If you are having trouble detecting support and resistance levels on the chart you can use our free MT4/MT5 indicators for that: Support and Resistance or TzPivots.
