How to use the indicator and the scanner for trading on the Forex market?

Thanks to Alexander Elder traders are met with a simple and effective strategy of "Three Screens", which fits perfectly in this trading system formed by a filter PZ Trending Scanner and indicator.

Choose a currency pair for the transaction on signal of the scanner at the coincidence of directions of two strong trends in the surrounding time frames and open the link graph View.

In this embodiment, under a criterion subject to the USDCHF in which we trade "from long", but a specific point of the transaction choose the method of elder, opening the schedule and setting it on the PZ TrendTrading with basic settings.

On this strategy, we should define three timeframe with the same direction of the trend (in this case up based on the filter PZ Trending Scanner). But the best entry point will occur after the formation of the support line, the youngest candle. The logic of this choice stems from the developers on frequent change (reversal) of the trend after rendering continuous levels of support/resistance.

the table Dashboard select M1 with the downtrend and M5, M15 with the opposite Strong Uptrend.

the entrance to the long carried out at the market on a minute chart USDCHF, after the occurrence of the support, the stop loss should be placed at the tick below the low of the indicated by the indicator line.

Proceed on the advice of the developers of the indicator, we use a trailing stop, moving it to breakeven after five minutes (medium timeframe). Then move stop in profit after each occurrence of a signal continuation of trend 3, in terms of the price channel.

Take profit is fixed automatically by triggering the trailing stop, after the next correction. It was possible to limit the maximum residence time in the transaction size, timeframe – 15 minutes


the Developers of the indicator showed an interesting approach to the decomposition of the trend in phase and the technical solution in the form of a scanner trends. Despite a sufficient number of signals and rendering the price channels — PZ Trend Trading is a complete trading system.

you should Also pay attention to the orientation of the tactics of working on larger TF and the long period of the time window. The signals of the indicator help to avoid premature exits for long-term and medium-term trends, but do not solve the problem filatovich plots, giving false signals.

So do the developers recognize the need to use additional indicators and think about tactics and money management. It is possible to make the tester, because we know that PZ Trend Trading no repaint signals.
