CFD/FX Options strategy 

Moving averages with the MACD filter.

One of the most effective technical indicators to analyze the dynamics of asset price movements is considered the moving average. There is an opinion on stock exchanges that with the help of “movings”, also known as moving averages, more money is earned than with all other indicators combined. This strategy is based on and operates on the signals of this unique indicator. And thanks to an additional filter in the form of MACD, you can halve the number of false trading signals.
Indicator settings
To get started, apply the necessary technical indicators to the quote chart selected for trading assets. To do this, open the indicators tab in the lower left corner of the platform and select “MACD” with default settings.
Next, in the same manner, select the “Moving average” indicator, and specify the following in the settings:
– period “7”
– type “Weighted”:

Additional conditions for trading:
– due to the fact that the moving averages trading strategy is based on trends, it’s best to trade with it during the day: from 7:00 to 16:00, Greenwich Mean Time, when most assets on the market follow the trend
– Use no more than 3% of your trading account for transactions, which will allow you to continue trading without trading drawdown
– When making transactions, use the expiry period of “1 minute”, which is the default in the Binomo trading platform.
