Cowabunga Forex Trading System

This trading system which you are going to learn here is called the Cowabunga Forex Trading System.

What the cowabunga trading system is a trend trading system. So what this forex trading system does is use the 4hr timeframe as for identifying the main trend and then trade entries are taken in the 15 minute charts.

So here’s how it works:

  • if the price in the 4hr charts are trending up, then only buy trades will be taken in the 15 minute charts
  • if the price in 4 hr charts are trending down, then only sell trades will be taken in the 15 minute charts.

So by looking at the main trend and trading in the direction of the main trend, you will have a better chance of getting a winning trade.

Sound’s simple right?

Well, not really…I’ll have to show you how you actually use the cowabunga system, its application and all the things you need.

 

Main Trend 4 HR Timeframe

As mentioned, you need to identify the main trend in the 4hr timeframe. So the 4hr Chart settings you need and the indicators you need are these:

  • 5 exponential moving average applied to the close
  • 10 exponential moving average applied to the close
  • stochastic indicator( settings: 10,3,3)
  • RSI (9)

15 Minute Timeframe

You make your trade entries in the 15 minute timeframe. This is what you require on the 15 minute chart:

  • 5 exponential moving average applied to the close
  • 10 exponential moving average applied to the close
  • stochastic indicator( settings: 10,3,3)
  • RSI (9)
  • MACD (12,26,9) (exponential histogram)-you have to make sure the histogram displays the difference between the two lines.

Where To Exit A Trade

A few options:

  • exit your trades at 50 or 00 levels. What is that? Well, it simply means that any price that ends with 50 or 00, that’s where you exit your trade. For example 2650 and 2700 are 50 and 00 levels respectively.
  • or you can use a previous swing high level as a take profit target level for your long trade
  • or you can use a previous swing low as a take profit target level for your short trades.
