Automated Strategies

Asia Range Grid

Developer: FXCM

Combine the popular RSI Cross strategy with a grid entry and exit system and you have the Asia Range Grid strategy.

Asia Range Grid, designed for use during the Asian trading hours, looks for entry signals by watching the relative strength index (RSI). If the RSI drops to an oversold level, the strategy places a buy trade. Likewise, when the RSI rises to an overbought level, the strategy places a sell trade.

After the first position opens, the strategy uses a grid system (from user-specified pip intervals) to determine further entry points. Should the market move through a new gridline, a new position opens.

Trades close one of two ways: either an individual position reaches its limit price or the user-defined session time ends, which closes all open positions.
