    The system I use is fairly basic, I'll post some charts, I use 3 SMA lines, setup to your 30 SMA 50, and 100, and those help me ascertain the if we're not or trending, let show you using a couple of charts one revealing a trend and one which is not trending. What I look for is to get all the MA lines to be parallel and parallel in the exact same direction. If the lines are crossing and all around the place the pair is not trending on this time frame. Notice how lines are parallel and nice and all pointine in the exact same way...

    Now this reveals a pair that I would avoid on this time frame utilizing this system notice how lines are crossing every whichway, not a fantastic idea to trade in my opinion, only whay to risky...

    The reasion I use the MA lines is since they are dynamic and they'll proceed with the pair, markets are not perfect, and only playing the right trend lines. . .well those are breached many times and and can be tricky to use nevertheless they do have thier loion and I'll go over that quite shortly. Even the MA lines can tell you a lot about the how healthy the tendency is, the 100 MA is just one I see quite close, if that starts getting tested then there's a possiblity the tendency could be running of gas...

    At a trending market you to see the price harmonicaly bouncing off of those trend lines, the market will always come back to those in a trending market. And those are the places I look for entries and will go over that in just a little while. Those 3 MA are nothing else and the one I use.

    If we've got an uptrend always look for higher swing highs and higher swing lows and of course the reverse in a downward trend, but it has to be harmonicaly bouncing from the are of the MA lines, I'll tell you the bigger players prefer to enter in that region. And that's where price action comes into play, when the market is far away from those lines I shall always let it come back to those before I look for a entrance.

    Now the charts you are looking at I call my installation charts, I do not trade off of those. I use them to start looking for the installations. I use a smaller time period to loe my entrance point and this chart is going to be my activate chart...

    I also draw the trendlines on the setup charts, as I mentioned before they attracted trendlines have there place, here is the EURUSD pair with the trend lines in place, the horizontal line represent the support and resistance lines and as you can see it looks like the Service may hold, as it bounced not just off the daily trend line but it there has been a support line at that same area. So we have a confluence of support in that area. That's one of the secrets to this system. Examples would be Previuos swing highs or lows, Fib amounts, and around number places, on my charts my grid is set up so just the round numbers are revealing, like 1.00, 1.50,2.0. . .etc Those work as S/R as well. So in I wait for the market to rebound back into the MA lines, and search for a confluence of all S/R in that area, I want at least 4 confluences before I even consider taking and entry point.

    Now how do I determine when to activate a trade. . .well here's how I do it, I will draw my fashion lines and look to be sure on the setup chart that we are in the area of the MA lines which we have our confluence of S/R at the exact same place, today I will switch to a lesser timeframe, typically I use a divide by 4 rule, if we are on the hourly chart for a setup chart then I use the 15 minute chart for a activate chart that way you can observe the price action easier. I wait patiently for your price to break the counter trend line and then I WAIT again however this time I wait for a pullback, I like to see about 4 or 3 pub pullback then when the price breaks below the start of the pullback that is where I activate the trade, I set my Cease right at the area where the pullback ended or a few pips below or above. . .And I don't move it, if it backs up and triggers my halt, then so be it. I will give examples of I set my goals using this system, and how I do so. And I don't trade if the pip spread is higher than 7 pips, if it's then I leave it and look for spreads, but this is how I get it done.

    Always remember that the higher time frames will probably prevail within the smaller time frames. There'll be tendencies within tendencies. . .etc
