EMA Crossover Forex Trading Strategy


You can now download the EMA Crossover Forex Trading Strategy for free on AtoZ Markets indicators gallery.

EMA Crossover Forex Trading Strategy basically consists of taking trades using two or more moving averages that cross over.

Let's say we have a crossover between two Exponential Moving Averages. We buy when the 7 EMA crosses over the 21 EMA. This is because we believe the market is turning bullish. We sell the pair if the 7 EMA crosses below 21 EMA because we believe that a downtrend has begun.

We know that we need to filter trade setups in order to make them more profitable. To do this, we will use a custom indicator.

We will use the Octopus 2 custom indicator. This indicator is great at determining direction bias and would also be useful in filtering crossover situations. Three exponential moving averages will be used for our moving averages. This will enable us to filter more trades. We want the moving averages to be properly stacked before we enter any trade.
