Winner: January’s Best Forex Trading System Contest

Winner: January’s Best Forex Trading System Contest

Last month, we had two courageous participants in my monthly contest. After a gruesome week of voting, the humans have spoken and it looks like we have a champion. By a cosmic landslide victory, I now present to you January’s Best Forex Trading System, forum user aidysrpoule‘s…

Sproule System!

The Sproule system is a trend-following system that uses a minimal number of indicators. In fact, it only uses the 100 EMA applied to the close on the 1-hour chart.

According to aidysproule, you can use any of the following pairs to trade it: AUD/USD, EUR/JPY, EUR/USD, GBP/JPY, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, USD/CHF, and USD/JPY. To know more about the system, just head on over to aidysproule’s thread.

Below are a couple of sample setups from aidysproule’s the shows how his system works:
