Trading strategy with King Cobra indicator

Note when using strategy
  • Currency pair: any
  • Timeframe: H4 and above. In the example below, you use the D1 framework.
Principle of entry
  • The red dot turns into a blue dot. You can now place a buy-stop order above the highest price of the D1 candle with the blue dot below.
  • Similar to sell orders, when the green dot turns to the red dot, we can place a sell stop below the lowest price of the D1 candle with the red dot above.
  • In addition, the trader can also use a buy/sell limit when the price retraces about 50% of the candlestick, thus getting better entry points with lower risk. However, there are times when it is possible to miss an opportunity. So you should consider it yourself.
  • In case, the next candle does not match your order, but still has a dot of the same color that continues to appear, you just need to adjust the trading order according to the tree so that on that new day is okay.
  • Use strong resistance support to set profit targets for your strategy with an RR ratio of at least 1: 2. And then move the stop loss by the dot.
  • Place the stop loss below the first blue dot when you entered a buy order or above the first red dot when you entered a sell order or follow the top of the day and add about 5 more pips.
