Its author — Toha recommends:
1) pay particular attention to the following currency pairs to trade: Eur / Usd and Nzd / Usd.
2) The time period can also be anything, but still not recommended below H1.
3) The strategy is without indicators, but approved of the indicator MACD (default settings), to search for additional signals for entry and exit in the form of divergence MACD.
4) The basic signal to enter the market — the fourth approach is the price to one of the lines-drawn canal + presence at this point (or about) the important Fibonacci level: 38.2%, 50.0% or 61.8%.

Test forex strategy.
Testing forex strategy and statistics are not kept, because trades are not the signals, and more pronounced! I can only say that trading on it, stop loss no I did not have, 4 deals were closed bezubytku and all others in profits!
But will come in handy for more forex signals, emerging market, and any: Diverging MACD, trend lines, channels in the presence of senior TF, etc … It is recommended to use templates MT4 forex forecasts this site!
Template MetaTrader 4 is not attached, because in each case, the construction must be carried out independently.
This forex strategy is certainly not break even (!) (Though I have them, and it was not), but if you approach the maximum trade responsibly, will find more opportunities for forex signals, I assure you, you will all still make a profit consistently !
Beginners in the forex market do not recommend just «go on the warpath», and trade on it. Need a little time on the technical analysis of the chosen currency pair! Try to look at where the market tends to move, that is directed to the trend! And of course advise same view on history, where and how it works!…
