You can now download the Simple TDI Breakout Trading Strategy for free. The TDI (Traders Dynamic Index) indicator is one of the most commonly used custom technical indicators among forex traders. The indicator puts a lot of information into one indicator. It has a Bollinger Band-like feature that allows traders to identify oversold and overbought market scenarios on a dynamically moving line, which also use as a resistance or support. It is indicated on a fixed range, allowing for an oversold and overbought market condition to be identified based on that range. It also has an RSI line that mirrors the price movement, and it has a signal line derived from a Moving average used as a crossover signal. These all features make the TDI one of the complete technical indicators available to all forex traders.
Simple TDI Breakout forex Trading Strategy works well on all timeframes and currency pairs.
How to trade with Simple TDI Breakout Trading Strategy?
This forex trading strategy combines a TDI indicator-based entry signal and a breakdown or breakout from resistance or support. Moreover, this strategy should have a higher success rate because it combines both a clear indicator and a commonly traded price action strategy.
To filter trades further and identify the market’s direction easier, add the 200 EMA (Exponential Moving Average ). If the price is over the 200 EMA, we only take long trade setups.
