Strategy and Time

I may answer my own question within this thread.

I have a pretty good strategy I have been using and its successful when the setup for that trade is avialable. I have been using a 14 & 60 SMA crossover with Stochastic confirmation when the %D & %K line cross over in the same direction. I typically only trade in the direction of larger trends as well and the Bollinger bands (20,2,2) stay in my background.

However; this trade comes around once ever 4 hours or so and not neccessarily when I'm availible. I find myself pulling straws to make a trade work when I am in front of my computer. Knowing very well this is going to work against me. 

I trade in the morning when I wake up and preparing for work and then I come home and trade after work.

Now the part where I probably answer myself. I think I need 2 or 3 more trading strategies. Does anyone else have this experience or have had? I would love to hear various experiences and hopefully can pick my own inspiration and path from this.

Basically, your issue is that you have limited time to trade; you're trading off H4; and you're receiving signals for potential trade setups less frequently than you'd like. :)

Try trading your strategy off H1, M30, or M15 charts instead.


Try adding HMA 200 and HMA 10 indicators on those lower charts.
