Signals provided by this tool are based on crossover of blue and red lines. Each has its own role to play, namely the red one reflects price momentum, while blue one acts a dynamic support/resistance level.

This is rather simple strategy and rules that apply can be summarized into:

  • For a long play – red MA should cross above blue MA and afterwards wait for a price pullback. Confirm your entry with price action patterns.
  • For a short play – conversely, red MA should cross below blue MA. When a pullback happens, verify entry with patterns as already mentioned.

When it comes to profit taking, it can be when opposite signal occurs or specifc risk-to-reward ratio (e.g. 1:2) can be utilized. For a stop loss it can be a few pips distance away from the blue line.


It may seem like a pretty simple trading approach at the first glance, actually it may turn to be effective and profitable when properly applied. The key here is to make use of the price pullback and trend-continuation.

It will work the best in times of large market swings and strong trend and perform a bit worse in sideways market.
