Counter-Trend Impulse Strategy

Counter-Trend Impulse Strategy

2024-03-26 • Updated

Information is not investment advice

Counter-trend strategies are always the most dangerous but also the most profitable. We are pleased to present an excellent counter-trend strategy for working in any market and with any assets.

Strategy setups

Instruments: any

Indicators: Bollinger Bands and RSI with the default settings

Timeframe: >30M

Risk management rules: Fixed trade volume with 0.1 lot.

Rules for a long entry

  1. Wait for the price to move out of the lower Bollinger Band and start to move back in. The more the price moves out of, the lower Bollinger Band, the better.
  2. Simultaneously, the RSI indicator line must cross its lower boundary upwards (enter the working area from the oversold zone).

It is recommended to use the Stop Loss at the level of the nearest local minimum before receiving the signal.

Rules for a short entry

  1. Wait for the price to move out of the upper Bollinger Band and start to move back in. The more the price goes beyond the upper band - the better.
  2. Simultaneously, the RSI indicator line must cross its upper boundary downwards (enter the working area from the overbought zone).

It is recommended to use a Stop Loss at the level of the nearest local maximum before receiving the signal.

Rules for a Take Profit

  1. The choice of Take Profit is possible based on the ratio 3:1, i.e., a trade should bring 3 points of profit for one lost profit point.
  2. The trade can be closed before the Take Profit when the Bollinger Bands midline is reached.

Important remarks

When looking for signals, paying attention to how the price leaves the level of the upper or lower Bollinger Band is essential. Ideally, if the price goes the band completely before the signal appears, such a movement is strongly impulsive, i.e., there is a kind of compression of a spring, which uncompresses later, taking the price in the opposite direction.
