MACD Bars Forex Trading Strategy


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

This trading strategy is based on Rads MACD and AMA_optimized indicators. The Rads MACD on its own has the potential to be a good indicator to base a profitable trading strategy on. However, for this strategy, we will be pairing it with AMA_optimized custom indicator.

The AMA_optimized indicator will serve as a filter and an early indication of a possible reversal and potential start of a trend. The AMA­_optimized indicator is basically a moving average based indicator that plots blue dots whenever it detects a bullish trend and red dots if it detects a bearish trend. As such, we will be looking for possible buy setups if the AMA_optimized indicator starts printing blue dots, and sell setups if it starts printing red dots.

Indicators:

  • Rads_MACD
  • AMA_optimized: 14-period

Currency Pair: any

Timeframe: 5-minute, 15-minute, 30-minute, 1-hour, 4-hour and daily charts

Trading Session: any
