Scalping Strategy M1 / M5 with Macd and Stochastic
If you prefer trading with minimum risk and short deadlines, here is a simple scalping strategy suitable even for the less experienced, the Macd + Stochastic turbo strategy.
You probably already use an indicator, perhaps one popular among traders such as the Macd or the Stochastic. Why not use two of them together to improve results? Maybe adjusted for M1 or M5 time frames, that is, for the very common short-term scalping.
Here is the strategy we have prepared for you. You can use it with the help of any 1 minute or 5 minute chart , and any currency pair .
The strategy uses the two indicators already present as standard on most platforms, so to get started you just need a good demo for testing that already has the two indicators available. Otherwise you can rely on the good old metatrader.
The graph with indicators
- Indicators: MACD (Moving Average Convergence / Divergence). Parameters: 12,26,2
- STOCHASTIC (Slow Stochastic). Parameters 8,3,3
- Recommended time frame: M1 and M5
- Currency pair: Any
- Recommended deadline: 5/6 minutes for M1, 25/30 minutes for M5
Entry Rules Strategy
BUY (Buy / Call)
- MACD> 0 (greater than zero)
- STOCHASTIC crosses (coming from below) level 20
SELL (Sell / Put)
- MACD <0 (less than zero)
- STOCHASTIC crosses (coming from the top) level 80
Example 1. Call.
The Eur Usd M1 chart (the same as the one shown above) shows us a possibility of entry into Call , as the macd is above zero and the stochastic rises from level 20.
Example 2. Put.
Eur / Usd M1. Here we have identified a point where the macd is below zero and the stochastic falls from the 80 level. Put.
Example 3. Put
Again a similar example, Macd <0 and Slow Stochastic falls from the 80 level. Put.
Example 4. Call
MACD> 0, and the Stochastic rises from level 20, Call.
Example 5. Two Call.
Example 6. No Trade.
There is no correspondence between Macd and Stochastic. No trade.
