"The trend is your friend." This is one of the most famous and valuable teachings that experienced traders can give to newbies. There is a reason for that.

No matter your views about where the price moves, what matters is where the price heads to. The market is always right, and ultimately it decides who gets the profit and who has to take a loss.

The purpose of this strategy is to spot when it's the most suitable time to buy an asset profiting from a potential short-term price increase. The strategy tends to open trades frequently, closing them on average in one and a half days.

ENTRY

The buy order is placed on assets that present strong momentum when it's more likely that it is about to increase further in the short term.

To capture momentum on the asset, the rule strategy requires:

the MA50 greater than the MA100

the RSI greater than 50

The rule, then, places the order when

The price crosses below the MA9.

EXIT

This strategy comes with a stop loss and a take profit which adapt dynamically to market conditions.

The trade is closed in profit when the RSI is greater than 70, as the trend could experience a pull-back.

Alternatively, the trade is closed when the RSI is lower than 30, being this a sign of weakening of the trend.
