My trading system
Roman Andreev strategy
My system is based on 4 points: entry, stop, exit and limits.
Entry
1. Firstly, it is necessary to find a point or zone on the chart, where the probability of a change or strengthening of the trend is inclined in favor of the trader and use it, by entering in a position with a specific purpose and insurance in case something goes wrong.

2. You can enter the transaction in two parts:

- if you see that the price doesn't reach the level
- if you are trying to trade from a cluster zone

3. For levels, there are two options for entering / exiting:

- Bounce from the level: touching the level and the beginning of the reverse movement.
- Break of the level with its retest.

1. In case of the bounce, the level can sometimes be pierced, after that the price will again return to the level. That is why it is always worth waiting for a retest of the level in order to determine whether it was a false break or the level is broken and retested.

2. In case of a break with a retest, the price often returns back to the level after a short period of time.

Therefore, there are usually two retests: at the micro level (5 min) and at the macro level (1H).

3. Periodically, a level can be sawed up and down (breaks in both directions). In this case, it is worth waiting for a clean level test on either side and place an order towards the bounce.

4. In a calm market, instead of closing position by stop near the level, you can wait for a retest after the break and exit at the bounce. This will help minimize transaction loss.

Stop
Limiting the potential loss from a transaction if the market has ignored a zone or level for any reason. There can be a lot of such reasons: incorrect marking, rush day, simultaneous release of any significant news, etc.

  1. Always place STOPS
  2. Stops are knocked out mainly when you put them wrong.
  3. The lack of stops can turn a trader into long-term investor.
  4. The presence of stops teaches a person to understand the market better than any book.
  5. Do not place stops in advance; try to close the deal with your hands.
  6. The risk-profit ratio is only suitable for a system with expected value close to zero.
Exit
Closing the position upon reaching the goal of entering the instrument.

1. You can close the position at the next nearest level, guided by the rules for entering by level:

- on the first puncture, the deal closes (if desired, reopens on the bounce)
- at the second puncture it can be opened again because of the possible continuation of the movement.

2. The limit on profit per trade.

Depending on the type of level, you can analyze the average rollback from levels of a similar type and work out a profit limit for such a transaction.

When the limit is reached, the position or part of it closes.

3. To make the profit flow, I recommend closing half of the position while simultaneously placing the stop at breakeven, and close the rest of position by levels.


Closing by time limit

As a rule, if the rollback movement does not develop within 10-15 minutes, then the market will move further along the local trend.

In this case, it is recommended to close the close the position by market.


Closing by candle expiration

Sometimes bounces do not get to the levels or to the size of the limit of the deal, so you can close the deal by the expiration of the candle.
*** Recommended candle timeframe - 5 min.

Signs of expiration:

- as a rule, this is the longest candle in the retreat or medium in the dominant movement;
- retrace movement begins to slow down;
- the working edge of the candle begins to twitch up and down,
either slowing down or staying in place.
*

*This is due to the fact that, for example, in case of growth, transactions begin to execute not only by offers, but also by bids, because sellers who play a pullback want to fix the profit, which, as a rule, is fixed by market.

Limits
Proper management of time and money limits helps to simplify and improve trade.

  1. Always have reasonable limits for each instrument.
  2. Track statistics of all your trades.
  3. Change the limits for instruments depending on the ease of their trade.
  4. Do not put more than 50% of the deposit in one instrument.
  5. Do not trade a bunch of instruments - this will cause the growth of entropy.

Do not leverage!

  1. Trade without leverage or with minimal leverage until at all phases of the market you learn how to get stable profit.
  2. Using leverage, earnings are higher, but losses are also higher.
  3. If you lose 50% of the deposit, and in order to return it to its original state, you will need to earn 100%.
  4. You have to pay for the leverage, and the broker can cut them at the most unexpected and unpleasant moment.
