Global Alpha FX Strategy uses a mix of fundamental and technical indicators, automation and manual trading. The strategy trades only spot foreign exchange “Forex.” The basis of the strategy is betting on market adjustments to real money flows that happen outside of fundamental reasons. When no high impact news is due out on a pair, an automated signal is triggered to buy a predetermined amount of currency, based on the account balance, on a low risk setting, when price closes a predetermined distance below 2 standard deviations on 15 min time frame. Conversely it sells when prices closes that same distance above 2 standard deviations. If price continues to go beyond standard deviations, more lots of the pair are bought/sold using a lot multiplier. Profit is taken at predetermined levels, although some of the lots can be retained, and a trailing stop loss strategy can be employed if the price direction is following the major trend based on H1, H4 and daily charts. The automated trading is paused before high impact announcements, and initiated again after the news and price movement have taken place. Stop Losses are put into place to risk only a certain % of equity per trade, depending on risk settings.
