Since it is based on a relatively large timeframe, patience will be needed when trading this strategy as not many trades will be generated compared to trading strategies based on smaller timeframes. The advantage is that the strategy is very simple and almost anyone can use it to take trades and profit with it.
It consists of several simple rules which when followed will provide good trades and offer the potential for profit. It’s recommended to use it on the major pairs only because chart patterns work better due to the good liquidity and volume on these currency pairs. The strategy can be enhanced by combining it with other tools and indicators as we shall see later in this article.
