Here’s another option to close the deal:

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

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 Time Frame

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

How to Close Profitable Positions to Get Max Profit?

First, it is exit points, which are shown by the indicator. They show a quite good result.

Secondly, it is round levels. It is classics. It works in any market. For example, 1.18000, 1.19000, 1.20000… Sometimes we also can use intermediate values: 1.19500, 1.20500…

When I plan my trades, I consider several factors. I try to trade only during the European and American sessions (to avoid a flat market). Also, before the trade, I watch high time frames to see strong levels of supports and resistance.

Let see H1:

EURUSD H1

We see a strong level of resistance – 1.1812, and the price couldn't break it. It is our possible target in the nearest future.

Go back to M15:

EURUSD M15 Again

As a result, good exit level – 1.1812


Also, during strong movements, we can use limit orders to re-enter the market.
