2 MA Pivot Forex Trading Strategy aims to make use of bounces off of the pivot points by using a crossover strategy as a confirmation of the bounce.

Prior to an actual reversal off a pivot point, price could stall or sharply reverse off of it. It could have a reversal pattern, whether it be a pin bar, engulfing, or whatever pattern around it. But not all traders are proficient or confident in using these patterns. Traders could make use of the fast moving averages as a confirmation of the reversal. Also, wait for the actual crossover of the moving averages and take the trade accordingly.

Since crossovers are a bit lagging, it is also important to take note of the space from the entry and the next hurdle based on the pivot point levels. If the reward-risk ratio based on the levels is higher than 1:1, then take the trade.

Another advantage of using moving average crossovers is that sometimes these hurdles could be broken out of. By using moving average crossovers as an exit strategy, traders can squeeze more pips out of the trade. Also, you have the flexibility of exiting the trade if in case price doesn’t quite reach the next pivot point level.
