Stochastic Trend-Momentum Scalping

Stochastic trend-momentum scalping is a classic very simple strategy based on stochastic oscillator.
Time Frame 5 minute chart.
Currency pairs: USD/JPY, GBP/USD, EUR/USD.
Sessions: London and New York.
Indicators:
Stochastic oscillators 13, 8, 3, close.
Step 1 open the 60 min chart and determine the trend with two moving averages: 11 EMA and 50 EMA if 11 EMA is Above a 50 EMA there is an up trend if the 11 EMA is below the 50 EMA there is a down trend.
Step 2
If trend is up with EMA 11>EMA 50 on 60 min chart – only buy trades. Let’s say the current trend is up and the price has been up. Then the market pulls back – the stochastic indicator crosses down too. No Entry here (current trend is UP).
Once the price bounces the bottom (support) and goes up again – wait till stochastic crosses and place “long entry” order.
If trend is down with EMA 11<EMA 50 on 60 min chart – only sell trades. Let’s say the current trend is down and the price has been down. Then the market pulls back – the stochastic indicator crosses up too. No Entry here (current trend is down).
Once the price bounces the top (resistance) and goes down again – wait till stochastic crosses and place “short entry” order.
Place stop loss 5 pips below/above the entry bar. Profit target 8-12 pips.
