- Identify the underlying trend of the market on a higher time frame.
- After identifying the underlying trend, you will have a bias. For example, In a market, always look for a long trade. Never short a market. Likewise, in a market, always look for a short trade.
- For opening a trade, use an hourly time frame. Other time frames work too, but if you are an amateur, the hourly time frame will provide less noisy signals.
- BUY on the signal(Blue arrow in this case).
- Use 8-EMA as trailing stop loss.
- Place Stop Loss just below the close of the previous candle. If the Previous candle is too small then, place the SL below the close of the Previous-to-Previous candle.
- SELL(Close Longs) if >50% body of the candle closes below the 8-EMA.
- You can also use a fixed Risk-Reward ratio if you do not want to use a trailing stop loss.
- The same principles can be followed to open SHORTS. Hence, I am not writing them again.
- This strategy can be applied to Banknifty or other equities/ etc.
- You can backtest this strategy and paper trade for some time.
- Always remember there is no holy grail in trading. It's a game of probability.
