Introduction

Every trader loves the idea of winning on each trade they take. After all, winning is the sole purpose of trading. Various strategies in the market promise to offer profits every day, but none of them are good enough to make you win every single trade you take. In the end, almost all of the traders wish for a method that could reap them good profit every day. But as we all know, trading is less about making money and more about saving your capital. For this same purpose, we have created the 10 Pip Loss Strategy.

The strategy suggests that we must take two to three trades a day by placing only ten pips stop-loss and go for bigger targets. For instance, let’s consider that we took three trades in a single day. If we lose two trades and end up winning one, we will be losing only 20 pips, but the gains that are earned on the third trade can be more. By following this strategy, our primary focus should be on taking three potential trades in a day.

The Strategy – Pairing Double Moving Average & Stochastic Indicator

It is highly advisable to use this strategy in a strong trending market.

To Go Long (Buy Trades)

  • Firstly, identify an uptrend in any currency pair.
  • Apply the double moving average indicator to the price chart. Go with 9 and 14 periods.
  • Wait for the pullback to happen, and the price action must hold below the double moving average.
  • Look if the Stochastic is reversing at the oversold area.
  • Go long if all the above rules are met.
  • Place the stop-loss just ten pips below the entry. Take profit placement depends on the market state. If the buyer movement is strong, expect a brand new higher high; if the momentum is a slow, exit at the most recent higher high.

The image below represents our losing trade in the AUD/CHF forex pair. As you can see, both the indicators gave us a trading signal at around 08:45 AM. We activated our trade when the price of the asset is 0.6129. It went a bit up and suddenly dropped down to hit our stop loss. As a result, we ended up losing the trade.

The best thing is that we lost only ten pips. Hence, these smaller losses won’t influence our decision-making abilities.

The image below represents our winning trade in the AUD/NZD Forex pair. We took this trade on 22nd April at around 08:45 AM. When the moving average went below the price, the Stochastic gave a reversal at the oversold area, indicating us to go long in this pair. Right after we went long, the price action blasted to the north and printed a brand new higher high. We end up making 90 pips in this trade.

Overall, we lost ten pips till now, and hence we stand at 80 pips profit.

The below price chart represents our third trade on 22nd April. We took this trade at around 6:45 PM. Following our strategy, we made entry, and the price action has printed a brand new higher high. This trade gave us a profit of 80 pips.

To sum it up, we took three trades out of which we made 170+ pips profit and a loss of only ten pips. By following this strategy, we can make profits on every single trading day. Note: Use this strategy only when you see the potential of having at least three trades in a single day. Otherwise, there is no point in using this strategy.

To Go Short (Sell Trades)

  1. Firstly, identify a downtrend in any currency pair.
  2. Apply the double moving average indicator to the price chart. Go with 9 and 14 periods.
  3. Wait for the pullback to happen, and the price action must hold above the double moving average.
  4. Look if the Stochastic is reversing at the overbought area.
  5. Go short if all the above rules are met.
  6. Place the stop-loss just ten pips above the entry. Take profit placement depends on the market state. If the seller movement is strong, expect a brand new lower low; if the momentum is a slow, exit at the most recent lower low.

The image below represents a sell signal in the CHF/JPY Forex pair. This is the first trade we activated on 13th April at around 08:45 AM. Overall, the market was in a strong downtrend, and when it pulled back, both the indicators gave us a sell signal. After we went short, the price sharply goes down and prints a brand new lower low. This trade gave us 60+ pip profit.

We took the second trade relatively at the same time in the USD/JPY Forex pair. Overall, this pair was also in a strong downtrend, and we activated the trade when both the indicators gave us a sell signal. In this pair, the seller momentum was strong enough, and we ended up making 82+ pips. 

This is the third trade we took in the EUR/JPY Forex pair. When price action pulled back to the moving average, the Stochastic also gave us a reversal at the overbought area, indicating us to go short. By the time we have exited, we booked 64+ pips of profit.

In total, we took three trades, and all of them hit our take-profit. If you observe, even if we would have lost two trades and won only one, we would still have ended up on the winning side. In a strong trending market, it is easy to win all the trades we take. All you need to do is to follow the rules of the strategy very well. To sum it up, with minimum risk, we gained a profit of 206 pips from the market.

We hope you understood the strategy well. Please try and trade this strategy in a demo account before applying it to the live market. Cheers!
