New strategy seems to work - PICS

Hi all. Basically I don't know about you but I've been struggling with the markets from a swing trading point of view.

Everything is either so high you daren't go long but it keeps getting higher (USD/JPY) or the opposite; so I've gone back to scalping.

This system seems to work well both in real life and back testing.

15 min scalp with the trend
- Wait for engulfing or big candle
- Wait for pull back candle
- If RSI is above 50 for long position and chart is trending above 200ma for 15 min then enter.

I shoot for 7.5% and risk 7.5% so 50/50
Once target is 80% acheived I set a stop loss in the green at about 70%

Seems to work for more choppy range bound action as well as trending. Need to keep an eye on the charts to get a few scalps in per day.

There are some exceptions to the rules which can also be confirmations of the rules if in you favour like head and shoulder patterns etc.
