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 & higher lows = uptrend while lower lows & lower highs = downtrend). If the short term trend matches up with the pairs overall trend, that is considered to be the best setup. Moreover, price action is just for looking simple candle patterns which are engulfing, pinbar, tweezers patterns, etc. This happens at prior support & resistance areas. Lastly, just drawing in some simple trendlines and/or channels
2. The 20 moving average is the best setup when you get a price action setup and the moving average is heading in the same direction (up for longs, down for shorts).
3. The MACD histogram to be lined up and heading in the same direction as your PA and MA. This helps you to see where momentum is going along with the first two guidelines. The best setups are when the histogram is on the correct side of the zero lines (above the zero lines for longs and below the zero lines for shorts).
