Trading Rules

The intersection of the histogram of the zero line and its exit from the yellow zone is a signal to open deals

  • The histogram crosses the 0 line from top to bottom and changes color from blue to red - open Sell or Put (for options)
  • The histogram crosses the 0 line upwards and changes color from red to blue - open Buy or Call (for options)
  • The trade direction should correspond to the trend direction on a higher timeframe.
  • Exit the reverse intersection deal and immediately open a new deal under favorable conditions

The direction of opened trades should correspond to the trend direction on a higher timeframe.   
If you trade on M1 or M5, then you should focus on M30 and H1. 
When trading on M15, M30 and H1, we focus on H4, D1 and W1, respectively.   
The exit from the transaction is carried out by the opposite signal (see the picture).

You can also exit the set orders SL and TP. 
When using SL and TP, it is advisable to set SL for the nearest extremum, and TP to be equal to from 1 to 2 SL sizes.
