NO.. I don't use a FILTER for FOREX.

I use this method on the EURUSD.

The guy who introducted me to FOREX is using the Tunnel Method on the GBPUSD.

This is utterly confusing. Could someone please explain the first post? Maybe TRO?

I commented out what I thought as I was reading his example.


GBP/USD is trading at 1.8500. The ema's are as follows: 144- 1.8494, 169- 1.8512. The market breaks 1.8494,

// ---------------------------------------------
// Ok, so the market went down from 1.8500 to 1.8494
// ---------------------------------------------

and you sell at 1.8492. Your stop and reverse is now at 1.8512. Over the following hours, market starts to go down. 40 minutes after you put position on, cable is at 1.8440.

// ---------------------------------------------
// The market is now at 1.8440. Dont know why he calls it cable. Why is 1.8440 significant?
// ---------------------------------------------

You can use for computation purposes either tunnel boundary or the median of the tunnel. Ema's are still the same, so if you use the median, 55 from 1.8503 is 1.8448.

// ---------------------------------------------
// This is where I start to get lost. He says use the median, but what does 55 and where does he get 1.8503 and 1.8448? To me the median of the tunnel means halfway between the top and bottom, i.e. (1.8494+1.8512)/2 = 1.8497
// ---------------------------------------------

You should have taken part of the position off at 1.8448.

// ---------------------------------------------
// Does this mean you sell at 1.8448? I thought you sold at 1.8492, when it first broke the tunnel?
// Ill stop here. If I dont understand this much, there is no hope for the rest of his mess.
// ---------------------------------------------

Market does nothing rest of day. Stop can be moved down to protect position or left alone at tunnel. You are now looking for price to be 89 pips away from the ema's. Since 55 was already passed, it no longer concerns us in this cycle. A couple of days later, cable is at 1.8300 and the median of ema's is 1.8410 [1.8400 - 1.8420]. You should be out of another portion of the position at 1.8321. Market bottoms here and in the next 2 hours, cable screams to 1.8535. Your remaining short position is covered at upper tunnel boundary of 1.8420, and you are now long from this point as well. Since you are long, you would now take partial profits at 1.8475 and 1.8509.

Cable is the nickname for the GBP/USD, it's named for the long cable that used to go under the Atlantic ocean syncing exchanging rates between the two currencies.

1.8503 is the median between the two EMA's (1.8494, 1.8512). 55 pips below that puts it at 1.8448 which is where you take some profits, either 1/3, 1/4, or 1/5 of your position.

You sold at 1.8492 (the break of the lower EMA). And you are buying back below that, first at 1.8448.
