Hi,

I am looking for some advice from some more experienced trader to improve on my trading system/rules. I have removed a lot of indicators from my system and I am designing my own based on the past 9 months experience in learning and experimenting.

Please review and add or take away what you feel may benefit my system.

Analyse at major & minor pairs trending using the 3 SMA 30, 50, 100 and filter out good/bad opportunities (close down the bad ones)
Write down the pairs on your whiteboard your strongest opportunities in the market and reasons why
Analyze the average true range and projections check the overnight Asian session moves
Decide if market is in a Trend, Range or Breakout phase

Main Analysis

Analyse longer timeframes for the trend ensure they match up approximately
Analyse M/W/D/4/1 candle colors match as many up as possible
