The Third Strike Forex Trading Strategy-A Price Action Forex Trading Strategy That Can Make 100 Pips Easy

The Third Strike Forex Trading Strategy is based on this reversal chart pattern where:

  1. in a downtrend, price will be making those decreasing swing lows and then on the third swing low, it makes a drastic move upwards.
  2. similarly, in an uptrend, price will be making peaks of increasing heights  and then on the third peak, it tends to make a drastic move downwards.
  3. The key to finding out where this 3rd swing low or peak would be is to use a trendline.

 

TRADING RULES

Here are the trading rules of this forex strategy:

Buy Setup:

  1. market will be in a downtrend
  2. lower swing lows will form
  3. when two lower swing lows form, you connect them with a trendline and wait to see if price comes to touch that trendline on the 3rd point, if it does so go to step 4.
  4. Buy immediately at market price as soon as trendline is touched or your can wait until the candlestick that touch point 3 has closed before using a buy stop order.
  5. Place your stop loss at least 10-20 pips under the low of the the candlestick if you used the market order or if you use the sell stop order then place it at least 5-10 pips under the low of that candlestick.
  6. your take profit target options would be the previous peaks or swing highs that the price made.
