The Forex Strategy "10 points on EURUSD" has a number of varieties and something similar to the Session Breakout strategy, many professional traders use it, so if you combine it with an optimal money management, you can achieve very good trading results.
The idea is the following:
The strategy is based on breakthrough of the maximum and minimum price values of the previous trading day. The most of the traders believed that if the level of the previous day has been broken, the price goes up, and vice versa for the minimum. From the other side, these two extrema are used as a stop-loss levels for the most of the traders.
Therefore, if the price has breaked the minimum of the previous day, stop-losses will be executed and further price movement will continue for some number of points.
The same is for the maximum, but only opposite direction.
So, using these facts, we will earn profits if we open buy, after the maximal price breakthrough of the previous day, and sell after the breakthrough of the previous day minimum.
But another category of FOREX traders use the same 2 points as support and resistance levels, so the price does not always move in the breakthrough direction of the maximum and minimum of the last days - therefore there it is necessary to use fixed stop-losses.
The recommended currency pair is EURUSD.
