We had two contenders going head to head, but only one earned the right to be called April’s Best Forex Trading System. Earthlings and monsters, give it up for ilzalama’s Trend Runner system!

Ilzalama has been working on this system for five years. He has been lurking the forums for a while now, but he feels it’s finally time to share his secret with the forex community.

“What’s the Trend Runner system like?” your squishy human brains may be wondering. Well, it makes use of the 4-hour chart to generate swing trades, though its creator says that higher time frames work just as well.

As its title suggests, it’s a system designed to help you jump on trends and catch mid-term swings. It’s one of the most versatile systems out there. According to ilzalama, it should work on just about any forex pair. He likes to use it on EUR/USD, AUD/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, USD/CHF, EUR/JPY, and GBP/JPY, but he claims you can also trade it with stocks, commodities, and CFDs!

To trade this system, you’ll have to put up quite a few indicators. The 200 SMA is used to determine the overall trend, while the Supertrend indicator is used to confirm the trend. You also have to look at Support and Resistance (Barry) for your exit levels. Below is how your chart should look like once you’ve got the system up and running:

One of the unique features of his trading method is his strict and detailed money management system that requires you to move your stop as the market moves in your favor. In fact, the creator says you can limit your risk and secure at least 10% of the overall move with his strategy!
