**Addition for MA Shade Trading Setup***********************************************************************
MA Shade Trading System

This is a consolidated post showing how to use the MA Shade Trading system. The setup will work for any time frame but for day trading, the 15 minute chart is the best. Also, when using this system, always check the higher time frames to see where the larger trend is going. If the daily, 4 hour, and hourly are up, for example, only look for long positions on the 15 minute setup and vice versa.

I have included a zip file in this post that includes the SHADE MA indicator and the finalized template for the setup with all of the modifications included.

So let’s get right into it…there are 3 basic rules for taking trades using this setup. Here they are…

1. Wait for the MA shade indicator to change color based on the direction you want to trade. For bullish setups, the indicator will change to a blue shade. For bearish setups, the indicator will change to a gray shade. During this time, the main thing you want to make sure of is that the faster white MA crosses over the slower green MA. You’re not actually taking the trade here…all you’re doing it taking note of the color change. Price will almost always retrace back in the direction of the previous trend for a bit when this first occurs. If bullish, all you need to do at this point is mark the high after the first color change appears with the MA crossover. If bearish, mark the low point after the first color change appears along with the MA crossover.

2. Set a limit order to trigger when price comes back and exceeds the point you marked in Step 1. For bullish setups, set it 5 pips above the level. For bearish setups, set it 5 pips below the level. This will trigger your trade entry. Stop losses, if you wish to use them, are normally small if the spread is small on the pair. The safest stop loss is 20 pips but normally 10 to 15 pips is fine.

3. Take profits after the high volume move or wait until price moves back to the white MA to close out the trade. I never expect less than 30 pips on these moves and most of the time (80% or more), price will move about 50 pips.

Additional notes: Avoid trading when the MA’s are moving sideways during consolidation. The white MA is the key here. Ideally, it needs to be showing a 2 o’clock angle up during bullish setups and at a 4 o’clock angle down when trading bearish setups. This angle will typically show up during the initial MA shade color change and then continue once the trigger is activated. The MA shade will begin increasing in size (getting fat) once your trade trigger happens. If price seems to stall after your entry and you’re not seeing any real volume and the MA shade isn’t getting bigger, it’s probably best to exit for a small loss or small profit and wait for the next trigger. Also keep in mind that this system isn't designed to completely replace your existing method of TA trading. I still highly recommend that you do your analysis on higher time frames (fib, trend lines, etc.) to make sure you don't take trades that have increased odds of being losers. Also, try to always trade with the trend on the larger time frames. Your odds of success increase greatly when you do this.[/i]

There are a total of 6 example charts, the MA shade indicator, and the template included in the zip file with this post. I recommend going through the examples thoroughly and then run the setup through the MT4 strategy tester to get comfortable with the trading system before going live with it.

I would strongly suspect that the Yen is about to start gathering it's strength again for another northern surge, tanking pairs like UJ significantly. My minimum target on my UJ shorts is currently set for 107 but more downside beyond that looks to be in the works.
