200 Touch

screenshot_3

  • Shonn’s strategy uses EMA’s and Box Set Up
  • He uses 200 EMA, 100 EMA, 34 EMA and 20 EMA
  • All EMA’s must align/stack in the same direction to confirm a possible entry
  • He waits for price to bounce off 200 EMA to confirm a signal for trading
  • Entry is somewhere after the bounce, e.g. at the high of the bounce bar
