Topic: Example for EURUSD 1Day market - 6000pips profit
See this example:
In the beginning of the day set Stop/Limit entry orders on +/-100 pips from the opening price.
For each order set stop/limit exit order +/-20pips.
What this means:
If the price can rises/falls 100pips we hope it will continue 20 pips more.

What is this:
Steady Bands is an indicator that places two bands around a moving average. If we set it with period of 1 and base price - opening of the bar, we have exactly the bar opening. The margin of 100 pips sets the bounds 100 pip far alway of the central MA (in this case price Open).
Closing point is either on +20pips take profit Limit or at -20pips stop loss.
This is a very simple logic, but looks it works good.
