GRID TRADING SYSTEMS
1) Ranging pairs averaging down grid system.

I choose EUR/GBP, it has been ranging about 0.6800 for three years.
So I put limit orders above and below 0.6800 and at an interval of 20 pips.

Sell limit at 0.6820 0.6840 0.6860 0.6900 etc.
buy limit at 0.6780 0.6760 0.6740 0.6760 etc.
No stop loss is used.
When the price goes low, as now it is 0.6700 I will end up with a few open positions. I have to put new limit sell orders now at 0.6720 0.6740 etc.
Now every time the price goes 20 pips up, I close the position with 20 pips profit. If it goes back again to 20 pips back, one more position opens.

The small volatility of 20 pips will give me small profits but these will be consistent, as statistically the pair will play between 0.6680 and 0.6700 all the time. So I will cover the lost money from the open positions and then begin to gain profit. Should the price go up again, I cash even more!

All you have to do with this system is to estimate the maximum or the minimum of the pair. Suppose I can accept a downward move of 500 pips to 0.6200, this means I will have 500/20 = 25 positions open of average 500/2 = 250 pips, that means 25 x 250 = 6250 pips lost, plus margin 25 x 50 = 1250 pips.

So the capital I need equals 6250+1250 = 7500 pips, and I have found that I gain about 350 times a year the small profit of 20 pips, that is 7000 pips a year. So I would get about 80% a year after the spread.

Pros: slippage is always on your side!
cons: market might fall ar climb far away from your average price! But this might be predicted fundamentally...



2) Trending pairs breakout grid system.

I choose the most violent pair, GBP/USD. I put stop loss orders above and below the current price at an interval of 20 pips again.Current price is about 1.9000 so here is the grid:

buy stop loss 1.9020 1.9040 1.9060 1.9080 1.9100 1.9120 1.9140
sell stop loss 1.8980 1.8960 1.8940 1.8920 1.8900 1.8880 1.8860

Eventually the market will go far from the current price, towards either north or south. If I have more than 2.45 times buys than sells or more than 2.45 times sells than buys, the grid is is profit. Since the orders are cancelling their opposites, margin is a very small issue here. Lost capital is also small. Obviously, if you set the grid just before London opening you have a very small probability to have to wait for a few days until you are in profit.
