Important notes when trading the 15M strategy
– When starting out, do not trade this strategy on a live account, you should practice it first on a forex demo account.
– Check the TREND on the 1H and 4H timeframe charts.
– Check where the daily pivot levels are.
The daily pivots are support and resistance levels which can cause a reversal of the current trend. Take profit at these levels. You can always re-enter if it breaks through and opens a new candle above or below the pivot levels.
