Buy trade Example
On the image above, we have a EUR/USD M5 chart, where a long trade was taken.
The vertical line (A) marks the exact signal candle.
Two candles before that signal candle, the price has moved above the 14 SMA forming
white bullish Heiken Ashi candles. The OsMA was following the price closely and has
been above the 0 level for the past two bars. The Momentum has just crossed above
the 100 level, while the RSI has been above the 50 level for a while.
As soon as all the rules were met and the current candle closed above the 14 SMA, a
long position was opened at 1.29479 (B).
Next, the Stop Loss was set just below the last swing low, at 1.29399, or exactly 8 pips
under the entry (C).
The Take Profit of 16 pips was also set, at 1.29639, which is exactly double the Stop
Loss (D).
As you can see, the Take Profit was hit 35 minutes later.
Short Entry
1. A bearish Heiken Ashi candle (red) crosses below the 14 SMA.
2. The OsMA moves below the Zero level.
3. The Momentum indicator crosses below the 100 level.
4. The RSI crosses under the 50 level.
5. As soon as all conditions mentioned above are met, wait for the current candle to
close and open a short trade.
6. Set the Stop Loss a few pips above the last swing high.
7. Set the Take Profit at double the amount of the Stop loss.
8. We can close our short trade without waiting for the Take profit to be hit when OsMA
goes above the Zero level.

Sell Example
The vertical line (A) shows the signal candle.
The first sign to start looking for a short entry was the candle before the formation of the
previous bearish red Heiken Ashi candle, followed by the close current candle below the
14 SMA. The OsMA has gone below the 0 level two candles ago. The Momentum
indicator crossed below the 100 level on the previous candle. The RSI has just crossed
under the 50 level.
After the close of the current signal candle, a sell order was placed at 1.04938 (B).
Immediately after that, a Stop Loss was set at 1.05216, which is 27.8 pips above the
entry and a few pips above the closest swing high (C). The Take Profit of 55.6 pips was
set at 1.04382 (D).
The price kept falling and the Take Profit was hit not long after.
