Exit Rules

Here’s another option to close the deal:

Exit Signal

So, why do we need to know the maximum possible profit? It’s a very simple. If you have an own strategy of profit-taking, or you develop your own strategy of the profit fixing, you can see how much you can get from the one deal. And to choose the level of the profit fixing as you need.

How to use Average Profit Info

First, we select the number of days for calculating the average price movement relative to the signals of the indicator.

Days for calculation

If we chose 14 days, we will see the average price movement in about 2 weeks (excluding weekends). For a Buy, it’s about +231 pips. For a Sell: +90 pips.

Using this, we can assume the potential of the next deals.

Profit lines

Also with this option, we can choose the more profitable currency pair (or another instrument) and timeframe. We can check the priority direction (Buy or Sell) on the selected instrument. And also to check the stability of trading by the chosen pair.

GBPUSD H1 timeframe

As we can see a buy trade on GBPUSD during the last 14 days gives 4 times more profit than on sale. 452 pips vs 109 pips.
