CCI and Moving Average Forex Trading Strategy. PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! CCI stands for Commodity Channel Index indicator. Forex trading strategy of EMA with CCI. CCI is basically an oscillator technical analysis indicator.

I’ve adjusted this strategy a little bit – we have a Pound/USD chart on a daily timescale although you can probably utilise this strategy on all the major currency pairs out there as well as Gold and some of the major indices. I have on my chart here two moving averages; both are exponential moving averages – the red one is a 50 period and the cyan on is a 25 period. I have a CCI (yellow) on the standard 20 period setting – above a 100 is overbought, below minus a 100 is oversold. I thought the moving averages were a bit low so I’ve tweaked them. As the quicker moving average (25) as it crosses down over the 50 period then that’s the first filter to go short. We don’t go short on the cross but wait until we’ve got an overbought reading on the CCI and only then we go short. You can also utilise this strategy on a 15 minute, hourly, 4 hourly..etc – anything below that you will probably get hammered by the noise although you could tweak the moving averages a bit. This kind of strategy makes sense to me; if you’re in a downtrend, you await for a pullback against the flow of money which is the bigger downtrend…

Here’s another idea strategy on how to use the CCI:

You're the best, man! At least I followed you.
CCI is the ONLY strategy that worked for me. I've been several days using it and the results are spectacular. I came here to learn more about the CCI because it's an indicator I really like. This is a leading indicator instead of a lagging one.
If you combine it with some other strategies, boom. You're profitable.

just change the candlesticks to Heiken Ashi or Renko, and you have a real winner

Excellent ! Thank you !

Alex Guimaraes says:

Good video, I just don't understand how you can trade currencies on a daily timeframe. I use a set up similar to trade the 5M and it works like a charm

Pawel Michalowski says:

I love your channel most of the time but I've been trading CCI (30) successfully for two years now and I can tell you with 88% certainty (that is my winning average with this strategy) that 100 is NOT oversold and +100 is NOT overbought 🙂 in fact it is signifying strength in that direction … I don't call the top or bottom until the cci is coming back from the +/ 200's and even then I need some major confluence to pull the trigger … but good try though. .. with the MAs you can definitely use 100 levels as pull back entries in the direction of the trend that works 🙂

Sounds like a losing trading system

very great strategy

natti orpaz says:

cci is not over bought sold indicator.
It's a strength market movement indicator so it can show you the strength of a trend.
Between +100 to -100 it's a normal movement. Above 100 and below -100 it show trend strength.

As a follow up to my last comment – I've been using this strategy live for one month now on USD/JPY, USD/CAD and EUR/JPY, so I have some 'real world' stats. The results from my back tests from September to the end of December were good, although there was a dire period from late Sept to early Oct on USD/JPY, when it performed very badly with a long string of losing trades. In the back tests USD/CAD was the best performer making 564 pips over the four months. USD/JPY made 307 pips and EUR/JPY made 370 pips. In live trading however, throughout January USD/CAD was the worst performer, making a loss of 89 pips. USD/JPY made a profit of 66 pips and EUR/JPY made a profit of 30 pips. So, I'm a bit disappointed but one month isn't really long enough to tell if this strategy is a good one. Given the results from the back tests and the fact that USD/JPY and EUR/JPY have both been profitable, I think USD/CAD has just been going thorough a bad patch. I'll continue to use it a bit longer and see what happens.

Stuart Mills says:

I've found this strategy to be pretty good. I've back tested it back to August on a few currency pairs on the M15 time frame. It seems fairly reliable on some pairs but not others. On the good ones I was getting about 55% to 45% win to loss ratio. I was using a risk to reward ratio of 1:2, so that's not bad.
The best ones turned out to be USD/JPY, USD/CAD and EUR/JPY. The worst was EUR/USD surprisingly, which went through some long bad patches. I expect it is good on may different pairs but i have only tested a few.
I started using a change of inflection of the CCI after it had closed beyond the 100 level as my entry but I found a lot of the signals to be false. I decided to add an SMI indicator (stochastic momentum index) set to 4,4,4,4 to use as an entry trigger, as it's a bit smoother than the CCI and gives a fairly accurate entry. The CCI still had to close beyond the 100 level to be a valid trade though. Once that had occurred I waited until the SMI had turned up (or down depending on the direction of the trade). This still isn't perfect but it filters out a few dodgy trades.
I also added an ATR(10) which I used to set stops and targets. My stops were 1.5x ATR and the targets 3x ATR.
The jury's still out really until I've spent a few months trading it live but I've done a week so far and it's been good.

Your "event" on the chart was the Brexit referendum last summer. 🙂

Paul Peace says:

Good lesson but, in real trading we don't know where the price will go……

social viralize says:

sir please i asked on your other videos also where will be my stop loss and where ever i do trades like this its contiues trends on same direction and i did not take any profit please please answer my question thanks

Peter Hughes says:

6:47, no way is that a profitable entry, you'd get stopped out by that long wick and there's no re-entry. Unless you put your stop at the prior low, but that's a long way down

kosh22 says:

Wouldn't stochastic give a similar experience
