Simple Scalping Strategy
Notes : This strategy suitable for this Broker
What are some of the advantages of using a scalping strategy to trade the forex market?
- Quick profits
Entry and exit is usually done within a couple of minutes. This allows for quick profits but
can lead to quick losses as well.
- Exit is usually within 20 minutes or less
- Lots of trades
Strategy uses 3 Indicators
The strategy uses 3 indicators: pivot points, Fibonacci retracement and the Stochastic
Oscillator.
The 3 main pivot points both above and below the pivot are used for this system: S1, S2,
S3 and R1, R2, R3.
The Fibonacci retracement values used are the 0.618, the 0.382 and the 0.500 levels.
The Stochastic Oscillator is set at 5,3,3.
Step 1 – Marking important support and resistance levels
The first step is to mark the important support and resistance levels on the chart. These
levels should include the Fibonacci levels. The chart below shows an example of this on the
EUR/USD 5 Minute chart that happened few days ago on May 31. The levels I’ve marked on
the chart are the swing high at 1.3046, the swing low at 1.29675 and the 1.30058 level
which is a previous support level that may turn into resistance if price goes back up.
How do you draw Fibonacci levels?
Notice the pair was trending down and then starts to pause and make a retracement. We
can now use our Fibonacci retracement tool to plot potential turning points that will propel
price back to its initial downward direction. We do this by connecting the swing high with
the swing low of the downward trend we just had on the Euro. These 2 points are marked
with a yellow circle on the chart above. By connecting these points the tool automatically
draws the retracement levels on the chart for us.
Entry and Exit with the Stochastic Oscillator
We enter and exit our trades by using the Stochastic 5,3,3 with overbought and oversold
levels at the 80 and 20 marks. See the picture below.
We enter a buy trade when the Oscillator is under 20 and is turning up. We enter a Sell
trade when the indicator is over 80 and is turning down. We exit the trades on the opposite
signals. If we’re in a long position, we exit when the Stochastic goes over 80. If we’re in a
short, we exit when the indicators prints below 20 indicating an oversold position.
Putting it all together – Looking for confluence of events
When entering our trades we should look for a confluence of events as these will produce
higher quality trades. The EUR/USD 5 Minute chart below demonstrates one such example.
After a downward rally price has come back to the 0.618 Fibonacci level. This level is also
very close to the psychologically important resistance at 1.3000 and the previous swing
point that we marked earlier at 1.30058. At the same time the Stochastic Oscillator is over
80 and is starting to turn lower indicating a short entry. We could enter on a break of the
1.30058 swing level or wait a little for the important level at 1.300 to clear. The stoploss
would go just above the swing high we just made just above the 0.618 Fib level at 1.30155.
This gives us a total risk of 13 – 18 Pips on this trade.
Once we’re in a short we now look to the Stochastic 20 level for our exit. Finally close to 3
hours later we get our exit when the indicator prints below and is starting to turn up. See
the chart below.
