How To Trade Using the 3 Pips Synthetic Indices Strategy
Wait for the RSI to bounce off of the 30 level as shown in the chart below. Once that happens wait for the formation of the third candle and then place a buy trade. Stay in the market for only three pips and then exit.
Three pips is a small distance for the market to move and this reduces your risk as you are only exposed in the market for a short time. You will need to open a number of positions to get significant profits if you are using the smallest lot size.
For example, 20 entries with the smallest lot size of 0.20 on Boom and Crash Indices should give you a $14 profit.
Conditions For The Three Pips Synthetic Indices Strategy

- Your profit target should be between $10 – $15 daily
- You need 200 EMA on your main chart and RSI period 14 on your indicator window 1
- Use on the M5 time frame
- Stay in the market for just 3 pips.
