    Hi!

    I have been following this system for quite some time now, and believe me, have never had a losing day.
    The system is very simple and though I cannot guarantee massive profits, you will get consistent returns.
    It utilizes Dual time-frame Momentum and EMA Crossovers on a 5 Minute Chart and is best suited to trade Nifty Futures, though any stock can be traded with this system over any time frame.

    Coming to the actual system now, the following is required for a long position to be initiated:

    Entry Strategy

    1. In the 30 Minute Chart, the Stochastic should be bullish.
    (That is, the fast stochastic line should have crossed over the slow line. It does not matter how long ago the crossover took place, it should just be above the slow line and should be going upwards).

    2. In the 5 Minute Chart, the Stochastic should be bullish as well.
    (Fast stochastic line should have crossed over the slow line and should be moving upwards. It should not be in overbought condition yet, that is, it should not have crossed 80 yet).

    3. The 5 Period EMA crossed over the 13 Period EMA from below and moves upwards.

    When all three conditions are met, we buy, placing stoploss at the low of the last bar or the bar to the left of the last bar, whichever is lower.

    Stochastic Setting is 8,3,4 for this system.



    Exit Strategy

    1. When fast Stochastic reverses from it's upward move, curves downwards and crosses the slow line from above, sell half of the units.

    2. If the next bar goes below the low of the previous bar, exit completely, otherwise keep a tight trailing stoploss and enjoy the continuing bull market :)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The second point of the exit strategy might seem confusing, but it is there as in a trending market, the stochastic might reverse while the market is still going up, so we do not exit completely on stochastic reversal as we do not want to miss out on the rally. But if the next bar goes below the previous bar (where we have exited half), it is confirmed that there might be a reversal, though short term, but we exit with the profits we have.

    I tend to avoid taking positions if the crossover is near an important support or resistance level.

    For going short, the exact opposite of the above rules is used.

    Thats it! I have been following this and making around 50 points everyday.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    These are the trades that I did today with this strategy.

    Overall profit of around 50-55 points after removing brokerage and slippage.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As I am not here to sell anything to you, I will not flood this post with hundreds of examples and charts where this system proved profitable, you can backtest yourself and see how it works out for you.

    The main purpose of my sharing this system with you is that we can have a discussion regarding it and see if any tweaks/modifications can make this more profitable.
    EMA Crossover Non-believers, please stay away from this thread.:thumb:

    I look forward to hear from all of you and your comments and suggestions are most welcome.

    Firstly, I would like to thank all the members for the positive response that I have received.
    I am quoting some important posts which I have compiled from this thread that will help you better understand this system and trade profitably with it.

    hi Pride,
    Thanks for sharing your system!!
    It would be really nice if we could see few more charts. Helps in better understanding. Should we always wait for the system to give us exit signal or should we have some kind of fixed SL to start with?
    will try to follow for next few days

    i've included the chart for yesterday's trades...you can click on it to enlarge it...

    if you read carefully, you can see that I have given how to put initial stoploss after point 3 of entry stategy.

    by SL, if you mean stoploss, then yes, we always place stoploss and I have mentioned what level to keep the stoploss at. For target, we just wait for the signal as we cannot pre-determine target. Once the fast stochastic starts curving downwards, we can get ready to exit and once it crosses the slow stochastic, we can exit.
    Though, I have experienced that around 20-30 points is achieved on each trade.

    I will see if I can get some free time to upload more charts.

    Thanks everyone for showing interest in this system.

    Regards
    Pride

    Hi

    If you are using amibroker then you can plot the higher TF stock on the same chart (different panel), using the following code

    Code:
    _SECTION_BEGIN("Stochastic_30_MINS");
    periods = Param( "Periods", 8, 1, 200, 1 );
    Ksmooth = Param( "%K avg", 3, 1, 200, 1 );
    Dsmooth = Param( "%D avg", 4, 1, 200, 1 );
    
    TimeFrameSet(in1Minute * 30);
    k30 = StochK( periods , Ksmooth);
    d30 = StochD( periods , Ksmooth, DSmooth );
    TimeFrameRestore();
    
    K	=	TimeFrameExpand(k30, in1Minute * 30);
    D	=	TimeFrameExpand(d30, in1Minute * 30);
    
    Plot(D, "D", colorRed, styleThick );
    Plot(K, "K", colorBlue, styleThick );
    
    Hi = IIf(k > d, k, d);
    Lo = IIf(k < d, k, d);
    
    COLOR = IIf(Ref(d,1) > Ref(k,1), colorRed, colorBlue);
    //COLOR = IIf(K > D AND (K > 80 OR D > 80) OR D > K AND (K < 20 OR D <20), colorLightGrey, COLOR);
    
    PlotOHLC(Lo,Hi,Lo,Hi,"",COLOR, styleNoLabel | styleCloud);
    
    _SECTION_END();

    Hello Pride

    I have ploted the trend direction form higher TF indicators directly on the price chart, its not exactly same as your strategy, but similar concept.

    Let me confess, I never liked crosses, :lol: but this looks interesting :clapping:

    Can u please help me

    [​IMG]

    Can u guide me , when i say 30 minute chart, does it mean the chart of last 30 mins only or chart from morning till now in a time frame of 30 minutes.

    Ans.1. I don't know about free sources, but you can either use metastock/Amibroker with live intraday feed, or you can use iCharts.in or investbulls.com

    Ans.2. For exit, just read what I have written again, it is very simple. Exit when the fast Stoch crosses over the slow line in the opposite direction to your trade.

    Here is an example of a short trade from 12th june which will clear your doubts.

    [​IMG]

    Net profit of around 45-50 points after deducting brokerage and slippage.


    Ans.3. I have already explained how to use stoploss in my first post. It is mentioned after point 3 of entry strategy.


    Thanks for the afl dhiraj
    Personally I don't use amibroker but it will come in handy for those that do.

    Though EMA crosses are lagging indicators, combining them with momentum indicators ensures that we enter the market once the upward/downward move has initiated and we exit the market before or exactly when it is reversing.

    30 min chart means intra-day chart of 30 minute time frame for bar formation

    I don't know of any free website, but I have been using investbulls.com real time service as I too cannot install any software on my computer. Though the data is not entirely accurate, total loss of 3-4 points per day due to delayed data is not a big issue for me, i can live with it :p

    Pride
