System: Main Live
Description: My trading system looks for divergence between Momentum and Relative Strength of the financial instrument’s market price on a 5 minute chart and 1 hour chart.
A trade is placed when a divergence is found in the opposite direction with a 20 pip take profit target.
There is no stop loss set, however, if the financial instrument is down over 70 pips. If there is another divergence trade set up. A trade, that is four times larger than the original trade size will be taken in the same direction in order to close the overall position with no loss.
These trades are placed automatically by an expert advisor on MT4
