The Spike Catching Strategy for Boom and Crash
What you need to know
Before looking at the spike catching strategy for Boom and Crash; it is pertinent that we establish some ground rules;
- Although this strategy can be used to trade any asset on Deriv, I strongly recommend you use it to trade only Boom and Crash
- This is a short term strategy; it’s important you study and understand price action as it is the basic thing that will make you a successful trader
- This strategy is not the holy grail for trading, but it will enhance your profitability in the Forex market if you used in effectively.
- Always risk responsible; this is very important
- Like I always mentioned, if you are new to Boom and Crash, learn to Catch spike and you will enjoy the market.
Two indicators are needed for this strategy: The Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Exponential Moving Average (period 1 to 4) and EMA 200.
1. Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The first Indicator you need to add to your Indicator window one is the Relative Strength Index (RSI) period 1000 apply to close; level 85 and 10.
Set the RSI style to blue as seen in the image above, the blue line will act as your wait or Take profit point while using the strategy.
2. Exponential Moving Average
Add Exponential moving average 1 to 4 on your Indicator window one (that is where you have the RSI); shift 0, apply to weighted close; and use different colors for the 4 EMA. ( add all the indicators one by one from 1 to 4)
3. Exponential Moving Average (200)
Add exponential moving average 200 to your main chart, shift 0 and apply to close. This will be used to spot the trend and it can also serve as a determinant to guide you in spotting the support and resistance point on the chart.
