FXS Signals Strategies


Be it trending markets or range themes, the below strategies are diversified to work in different markets conditions, capitalising on common sense set-ups: these can be of technical nature like breakouts at known boundaries; recurring price patterns; convergences of technical indicators, or fundamentally oriented, like price reactions to economic data releases. The whole portfolio is monitored discretionally with an additional layer of macro-analysis. The automated strategies are thereby means to materialise those macro-generated ideas with a favorable edge from the onset. Money management, that is, margin, leverage and total exposure are also assessed discretionally and strategies are switched on and off accordingly.

Dracoraptor - Trend Following Strategy

Dracoraptor buys and sells breakouts of the previous day's range when technical conditions are favorably for a considerable follow-through. One of these conditions which has to be met is a confluence between a 1,618% extensions of yesterday's range and any Pivot Point support or resistance level. Another technical condition is an injection of volatility measured with Bollinger Bands. This strategy has a favorable ratio between risk and reward, which makes it profitable in the long run despite having a low win rate.

Eoraptor - Trend Following Strategy

Eoraptor takes 28 currency pairs and measures their internal strength and momentum. It then establishes a ranking of the strongest and weakest pairs and buys the top of the list and at the same time sells the pairs on the bottom. Should a pair fall from its top position or rise from the bottom, the strategy closes that trade either in profit or in loss. This strategy is always in the market and aims to profit from larger trends.

Falcarius - Mean Reversion Strategy

The Falcarius enters the market when the Afrovenator fails to capitalize from the over-sold/bought set-up it looks at: the RSI bounced up from oversold levels in favor of a minor corrective move (vice versa in an overbought situation) because prices nudge again into oversold territory. Falcarius comes in then and tries to play the turnaround for a second time aiming for similar targets as Afrovenator. These two companions monitor the market based on 1-hour indicators.

The curation of the releases is a selection made by our team of analysts, which is then, case by case, validated automatically.
