Support and Resistance trading system

Simple, proven and profitable S/R system
There are a lot of various trading systems on the internet, but most of them are unusable and mainly not profitable in the long term. For this reason, I would like to introduce my (proven and profitable) trading system utilizing the S / R zones.

I can definitely recommend the system to everyone because it is very simple, but very profitable!

It’s just amazing how so simple trading system can be profitable. So here the saying below is really true:
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication (Leonardo da Vinci)
The system is built on a powerful indicator showing important S / R zones, which I found on the internet. So all credits go to the author. Over the years that I trade, I have not seen any better indicator on the S / R zones.

1) Firstly I would like to tell you more about the indicator for the important support and resistance zones, which I use in this system. The indicator shows the resistance and supports on the high quality price zones only.
So the indicator does not draw a lot of the zones, but it draws only the important ones.
However, its main advantage is that it also shows us the quality of resistance and support zones. Or rather, how many times the market tested a given zone (S / R). Here, logically, the more times the market tested the zone, the zone will be stronger and more valid.

You can download the indicator HERE (in the attachment).

Settings of the indicator

The indicator has more settings, but the Factor and zone extend are the most important for us:

a) Factor = how strong S / R zones should the indicator show (default 0.5)
b) zone_extend = whether the indicator should connect near S / R zones together (default false)

2) The whole trading system can be traded on any market and any timeframe (which is a big advantage). The lower the timeframe you choose, the more you will receive signals (more trades), but logically the trades will be shorter (faster opened and closed). It is up to every trader to choose the trading style that suits them.

The trading system is very simple and consists in the search for strong S / R levels (those which have been tested by the market at least once, but ideally 2 to 3 times).

Once the price hits the strong S / R zone (previously tested by the market), I open a trading position against the direction of the market (I

use limit orders). Then I hold the trade until the price reaches the opposite S / R zone.

Buy trade:
Price reaches the strong support (must be tested at least once). At that moment, I am opening the buy trade. I set TP below the closest resistance. The SL is the same amount of pips from the entry price as TP
– so I simply use RRR ratio 1 : 1.

Sell trade:
Price reaches the strong resistance (must be tested at least once). At that moment, I am opening the sell trade. I set TP above the nearest support. The SL is the same amount of pips from the entry price as TP – again, I simply use the 1 : 1 RRR(risk reward ratio) ratio.

Final info:
The indicator shows only the strong S / R zones. Not like other S / R indicators, which are drawing S / R zones everywhere. That’s why I like the indicator a lot, and I also recommend you to zoom out the chart little bit to see all zones. For intraday trading, I recommend that you choose M5 or M1 chart. For swing trading, I like the H1 chart the most.

With this indicator, of course, you can trade any other trading system. The system described above is only my most simple variation of the system. I also trade the previously untested S / R zones, but this style is much difficult and requires more experience (I will show also a couple of these trades in this thread). Of course, if you choose to change the trading strategy, its 100% up to you.
