Strategy description

Steps for a Buy signal
1. Identify the support level.
2. Identify a candle that has a shadow that goes below the support level.
3. Wait for that candle to close as a bull candle. This is called the false- break candle. (See Figure 1 .)
4. Enter at the opening of the next candle.
5. Set a stop loss of 5 pips below the low price of the false break candle.
6. Set two profit targets for this trade. Set the two targets at a risk to reward ratio of 1:1 and 1:2 respectively.

In the last Figire example, the stop loss is 28 pips, the fi rst profit target is 28 pips from the entry price, and the second profit target is 56 pips from the entry price.
From the long example in Figure 3 :
