20 pips daily candlestick breakout forex trading strategy


  • this forex strategy would suit a housewife forex trader who stays at home and looks after children as it takes less time and less effort because its a set and forget trading system
  • or it can suit a trader that has a day job and has no time to watch the charts so before you go to work, just place your pending orders and go to work. Check the next day what happened…
  • many traders trade the breakouts of the highs and lows of daily candlesticks so if a high/low breakout happens, there’s likely chance of your profit target being hit easily because its just only 20 pips.


  • in a low volume/volatility period (mostly happens in asian trading session but sometimes can also happen in london and new your trading session), you may get a breakout that will trigger your pending order but then price heads the opposite way once that order is triggered and you will get stopped out.
  • 1:1 risk reward. I really don’t like trading systems that give one to one risk to reward. This means that for every 100 dollars you risk trading, you win 100 dollars (if you win). But having said that, you may like it, that’s why I’ve shared this forex strategy with you here 🙂
