If you enjoy trading with indicators then you might also like  this  simple but very effective trading strategy that uses 2 EMAs( Exponential Moving Avarages) and a parabolic SAR( Stop And Reversal) dot.

Without any further delay let’s get started


EMA 5, EMA 15 and Parabolic SAR dot (default)

Currency Pairs:  Any, but best traded on major and minor pairs.

Time frame: Any time frame.

Sessions: Any.


Buy Signal

Look to buy when these two conditions happen:

1. EMA 5 crosses over so that it is above EMA 15.

2. Parabolic SAR dot appears below the price candlestick

Stop loss: place a stop loss few pips below the entry point.

Take profit target: exit the trader when the parabolic SAR dot appers above the candle.


Let’s take a look at a buy trade example.

Note: EMA 5 is the blue line and EMA 15 is the red line.
