A second set is made up of EMAs for the prior 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 60 days; if adjustments need to be made to compensate for the nature of a particular currency pair, it is the long-term EMAs that are changed. This second set is supposed to show longer-term investor activity.
If a short-term trend does not appear to be gaining any support from the longer-term averages, it may be a sign the longer-term trend is tiring out. Refer back the ribbon strategy above for a visual image. With the Guppy system, you could make the short-term moving averages all one color, and all the longer-term moving averages another color. Watch the two sets for crossovers, like with the Ribbon.
When the shorter averages start to cross below or above the longer-term MAs, the trend could be turning. Technical Analysis. Trading Strategies. Day Trading. Technical Analysis Basic Education.

Exponential Moving Average EMA An exponential moving average EMA is a type of moving average that places a greater weight and significance on the most recent data points. What Is a Moving Average Ribbon? A moving average ribbon is a series of moving averages of different lengths plotted on the same chart to show support and resistance levels, as well as trend strength and reversals. But I prefer this kind of decent system more than other ones which seem to be easy but finally not profitable.
The author was very supportive when I send him questions as well. Complicated and elaborate strategy that is unsuitable for all except the seasoned Forex trader. Not a beginner's text. As any other trading strategy. The method in concept is simple, and the author covered its complex derivations in a nice way. As any other trading strategy, the method needs lots of practicing in a demo account and lots of discipline on a real account!
If you have studied the the Code is Open and the Trading Manual, do not short-change yourself by skipping this one. In my view, this helps solidify the technique and in a meaningful way simplifies the trading rules. As with the other books, take your time and study these and they will bear fruit! I would've given it 1 star but because the author was so quick to answer my emails I will give it 2. I've decided to change it back to 1 star since the author emailed me and asked If i could edit my review.
One person found this helpful. In this 3rd book, the author expound the ST patterns with 2 more months' worth of trading, placing them under further stress testing. Every system has its good and bad days and how the down times are handled is crucial to the bottomline. You will find the answer here. A concluding chapter on how our mind hampers rather than aids in our trading quest nicely close off this trilogy.
See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. This strategy is a very quick way to liquidating your accounts. Very unsual and eye catching terms. This book is basically suggesting to trade every break of a microrange they call it fractal for some reason. So, you're supposed to enter at market orders at a fixed rate X above or below the breakout, set stop loss at the opposite end of the microrange and tp around He then enlists 4 scenarios Winning is not very common even for the seasoned traders.
This strategy is soo dangerous for numerous reasons. I wouldn't long the market when the general trend is down and vice versa. Waste of time. Just don't risk your money trading with this strategy. I will backtest and post real results when done. I have read all 4 of Vladimir's books twice now. The 2nd time around I made a booklet of notes.
The books are excellent. The strategy is also excellent. It is a lot of information to take in, hence why I have read them twice. I will probably read them again too. Vladimir is clearly a very intelligent man, with a very knowledgeable grasp of the foreign exchange market, who has decided to share it in these books.
What is more, I have sent emails to him with questions of the strategies etc, which to my surprise, were responded to in a very prompt and detailed manor, answering all the questions I had. Thank you very much Vladimir, for a great series of books, and for being so responsive in communication, it clearly shows your passion for the trade, and how much you care that others are as equipped as they can be to succeed in the currency exchange market. Top man. Top books. Get them!!! If there were 10 I would give him Solid system.
However what Vladimir describes is rock solid, works in Backtesting and Forward Testing. It has a sound MM system which is key in Forex. I bought all 4 books even though I will most likely not trade the 5M. I've got the first 3 books. I'm about to start to apply the method and feel very confident with it. You can see in the book the real graphs with the real patterns that have been formed throughout time, it's just about patience to learn and study the method properly. Report abuse. You have my utmost respect Vladimir.
