Daily Market Breakout 2% Risk per Trade, Risk To Reward 1:3
This daily market breakout strategy is ideal for the trader who is unable to keep a constant eye on their charts.
All trades are set up as pending trades before the European Open, circa 6:00 am GMT; and are closed at 17:00 GMT. Although any open trades are monitored during the day, the strategy is set up so that the trader does not have to adjust it at all if they are not able to monitor the charts, by opening each trade with an open price, a stop loss, and a targeted take profit, each trade is also moved to breakeven after 20pips gain, and also at other points as the profit increases. (The more a trader is able to monitor their charts, the more trades they can move to Breakeven and can capture fewer pips on more occasions, but this is not essential)
Generally you can expect 2 trades every 3 days, although the most profitable days recorded to date have seen 5 trades trigger then none for the rest of the week. The market gives what the market wants to give!
Each trade is limited by risk management of 2% per trade (Although GF Signals only allows 1, 2 or 3 lots open per trade, my own trades are opened in micro lot sizes proportionate to the drawdown risk of each trade, If you would like a trade risk calculator which I have prepared in MS Excel please contact me [email protected])
The maximum drawdown experienced so far is about 14% following 7 losing trades. The approximate risk to reward ratio is 1:3 with a 30% Win rate to 40% loss. (30% hit breakeven targets)
In general only 1 lot is opened per trade on GF Signals, although the drawdown SL is constantly analysed to allow the maximum lot size possible (In fractions) whilst still only risking 2% per trade, where the drawdown is shallow enough, on occasion 2 lots can be opened, (This is very rare)
Generally news trading will not make a difference to these trades, although we do stay out of the market on the first Friday of the month when the NFP is announced in the NY session.
This strategy is a low involvement strategy ideally suited to anybody who wants to enjoy the market movements without having to get heavily involved, -I have a full time job as a commercial Manager for a Construction Company and I have found this system to suit my lifestyle perfectly.
