Timeframe: M5.

Indicators used:

  • ADX (D+ and D- with the level of 25);
  • Momentum (14);

When to buy:

  • ADX (14) is above 25, while D+ is above 25 and above D-;
  • Momentum (14) is above 100.

When to sell:

  • ADX (14) is above 25, while D- is above 25 and above D+;
  • Momentum (14) is below 100.

When to exit:

  • Stop-loss is 5-7 points away from the opening level;
