It is best practiced on a daily time frame to limit the effects of whipsaws and can be used with any currency cross. The first condition which must be met to initiate a long entry is for the 150 SMA to be below the price action, thus signifying a bull trend. Conversely, a short entry signal is generated when the 150 SMA is above the price action, signifying a bear trend, and RSI and the Stochastic are in the overbought area. As soon as the Stochastic’s fast and slow lines make a bearish crossover, you must enter short on the next price bar.

As you can see, a strong and protracted bull trend was in motion, as indicated by the rising 150-period SMA. RSI was deep in the oversold area, while the Full Stochastic performed a bullish crossover, generating a long entry signal.
