Simple strategy with 3 indicators: +25% Profit last week on USD/CHF

Hello

Here is a very simple strategy:
3 indicators based on Bill Williams indicators (on MT4)
You can trade any pair, any TF

You trade the breakout off the box in a direction of the 4 time higher TF

Simple money management rules

Please check this example from last week on USD/CHF H1:

Let me know what you think

Cheers

why would the previous 2 breaks of the box go unnoticed?

u mean the 2 next breaks? They are a bit late in the move down. the first could have be taken with lower lot size as the ao is close to zl but last one is n't.

thanks for the question

no, I mean the two obvious exit points. You have just one exit, right down the bottom on the break of the box, but there are two breaks earlier. why are they not exit points? where I've indicated are identical to just your one exit

Ah, ok i got it! You may exit:
at the break off the opposite fractal box
at the red line if no divergence
at the green line if divergence
everytime at the close of the candle.
When you loot at H1 AO, its peaking so you don't want to get out to early. As the red line is close to the box, you would exit at the close of the candle crossing the red line as no divergence between price and ao (which doesn't happen in the circle area) or at the break of the box if price above the red line.
After divergence, as the green line is normally ur exit, the aims box upper level is close so i exit at teh break.

so, why weren't the two exit points I've marked an exit in your example?

Because no candle has closed above the red line.
Break of the opposite box is only one of the exit.

When you are in a nice move down on H4 (AO peaking south), you dont want to exit too early so you would choose the last exit signals

If you look at H4, its speaks for itself, the price has not even reached the green line.

However, to exit where you circled, is not a mistake, just a bit more protective way

Exit at fractal box is very good when price dropped fast, but when its a nice sweet move down like this, alligator lines are perfect exits

So they all need to line up, as in each one of your exit criteria must conform to exit?
But where you have mentioned the exit, the candle also has not closed?
I'd also argue that the candle has closed higher than the box in my second example

but you can never really know that its a nice move down, unless in hindsight can you, in which case you need to exit where you can..in your example you seem to have chosen a great example, but this I would argue is in hindsight.

@mike..thanks mate but this is a tortuous exercise so I'll leave it be!

When i use the break of the box as exit, i dont wait for the close the candle, same when the lines are too far from each other

but you can never really know that its a nice move down, unless in hindsight can you, in which case you need to exit where you can..in your example you seem to have chosen a great example, but this I would argue is in hindsight.

true, we never know, that s why u have to trade the setup. Exit is always tricky, u may chose one signal or another.
Cheers

odd that now you are exiting at the first box break whereas in the last example you don't, then choose to say its a nice move down, now you are in a nice move up and you exit on the first break of the box. This really does look as though you are picking charts to demonstrate a method that you are not actually using yourself.
just my observation of course

yes i use this strategy. This is based on Bill Williams strategy (only aims box instead of the fractals buts its the same principle) so the charts are the same but he mostly trades D1
I m not in a nice move up, Its wave 5 on H4 chart while its wave 3 on USD/CHF H4
but if you choose to exit in the first break of box in H1 Usd/chf for the 1st and 2nd entry, its is 4 +2 = +6%, and to 3rd entry will be +1%
Total = +7% Profit

FTT59 - would you say your approach leans more heavily to a discretionary approach than the purely methodological? Your box structure appears to offer you a basis for deciding what constitutes tradeable price action, but the basis upon which you seem to be making operational decisions for both entries and exits are different in every case you have cited so far.

entries are break of box of sleeping alligator or first fractal after the price broke the box.
Exits a:
break of box in opposite direction
or close of the green candle if divergence between price and AO
or close of the red candle if no divergence between price and AO
sometime those different exits are close to each other , and according to how the picture looks, you may choose one or the others.
I invite you to read Trading Chaos I and II, & New trading dimensions to get the concept
Cheers
