You can now download the Kiss Forex Trading Strategy for free on AtoZ Markets indicators gallery. The Kiss forex trading strategy is one of the most commonly used custom technical indicators among forex traders. This FX trading strategy puts in a lot of information into one indicator.

How to trade with Kiss Forex Trading Strategy?
Traders should consider the following points for chart setup before using the strategy in the MT4 trading system.
- Use the 4-hour chart, which is more reliable trading the higher timeframe, while still giving a few good setups each week.
- Plot a 20 LWMA in any color of your choice.
- Use a MACD indicator with a histogram with standard settings and double them i.e MACD(24,52,18).
1. Follow the current market trend. Higher highs and lower lows are indicative of an uptrend, while lower lows and higher highs indicate a downtrend. The best setup is one that matches the overall trend of the pair. Price action can be used to look at simple candle patterns such as engulfing and pinbar patterns. This occurs at the prior support and resistance areas. Finally, you can draw in some trendlines and/or channels.
2. When you have a price action setup, the 20 moving average works best. The moving average is moving in the same direction as the price action setup (up for longs and down for shorts).
3. Your MA and PA should align the MACD histogram and move in the same direction. This will allow you to see the momentum and follow the guidelines. The best setups have the histogram on the right side of the zero line (above and below the zero lines respectively for longs and shorts).
