The 123 foreign exchange trading strategy is a trend continuation exchanging structure established on the 1-2-3 chart pattern. That is 100% price action exchanging for a foreign exchange trading system.
- Perform on any timeframe but highly recommended to utilize 5 minutes and above.
- Applicable on any currency pair.
- It doesn’t require any foreign exchange indicators.
- Position stop-loss to breakeven if your gain is the same value you risked.
- Position stop-loss to lock in the value of gain equivalent to the value you risked earlier if your gain is twice the value you risked. For Instance, you risked $100 for an auction exchange. Now the gain is $200. So position the stop-loss and lock in $100 gain.
- Or if the exchange is in the gain by the value risked, why not end the half of the position and establish the stop-loss to breakeven and let the other half position proceed.
The 123 Pattern
In an uptrend market condition, price will result three points (please refer to the diagram below)
- Point one is the lowest low point, creating a support level.
- Point two will be the highest or peak point, creating a resistance level.
- And point three will be the second low point, a support level (which must be higher than the point 1 which is the lowest low point).
The breakout of price higher up point two signals the continuation of the market trend. Now, in a down trend market, the 1-2-3 chart patterns creates when:
- Point one becomes the uppermost peak when price reaches resistance and proceeds down.
- Point two becomes the lowest inferior point (creates support) and price proceeds up only to encounter another resistance at point three.
- When price interrupts point two support level. Thus anticipating that the market is most likely to proceed downwards in a descending trend.
- Establish an auction stop order1-5 pips beneath point (2).
- Establish stop-loss 1-5 pips higher up point (3).
- Your gain aim should be established at three times the stop-loss length.
- Establish a purchase stop order 1-5 pips higher up point (2).
- Establish stop-loss 1-5 pips beneath point (3).
- The gain aim should be three times the stop-loss length.
