[VJ]First Candle Strategy

Hello Traders, this is a simple intraday strategy involving the first candle of the day with an additional twist to the traditional style . You can modify the time of candle on the stock and see what are your best picks. Comment below if you found something with good returns

Strategy: Observe the first candle of the day within any time frame. 15m works best. If the first candle is RED ,then go for buy side for the rest of the day. You could square off at close of session or have a fixed take profit and stop loss. This is a contrarian indicator where people just use this as their first entry for the day. The same holds good when a Green candle is seen you go short side.

There is stop loss and take profit that can be used to optimise your trade

The template also includes daily square off based on your time.
