The Octopus Cross Forex Trading Strategy is now available for download on AtoZMarkets indicators gallery.
Crossover strategies are an important part of trading, even forex trading. Crossover strategies are simple to understand and follow. Crossover strategies are something that most traders, particularly new traders, would be familiar with.
A crossover strategy is a trading strategy that involves taking trades using two or more moving averages to 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.
Crossover strategies can produce false signals. Sometimes, the new trend doesn’t last long enough or reverses quickly. This can lead to trader losses. Sometimes, crossovers don’t even begin a trend.
