Trade options with Out Bands candlestick method in Olymp Trade

- This is a 5-minute candlestick method (trade options in Olymp Trade following the candlesticks’ color: Up = green, Down = red). It means when the signal candlestick closes => open options => bet the color of the next candlestick (the time expiration of an option = the time of a candlestick = 5 minutes)
- Trading options method: Out Bands candlesticks. It means when the signal candlestick closes at 2/3 outside of the Bollinger Bands, or closes completely outside the bands => Open reversal options.

- Capital management method: Martingale. Deposit $20 when trading. If lose, increase money. Option 1: $2, Option 2: $5 and Option 3: $13.

It must be said that this is a standard cycle according to martingale capital management. For those who are new to this capital management method, it is very vulnerable to your psychologies.
Losing streak can harm your brain and you may probably burn the account for the next option if losing at this 3rd option. This is one of the biggest weaknesses of Out Band candlesticks method. You have to be really careful when using it.
Almost all, the Out Bands candlesticks method is quite right at the morning time frame with EUR/USD. If the market does not have any shocking news, it is clear that there will be an immediate adjustment after the price exceeds bands. This is the basis to open a reversal option of this trading method.
Next, if you use Martingale, then save it for the morning options (except Monday) when you have calmness + market support. In the afternoon, the market fluctuates quickly and sometimes only moves in one direction. If you use Martingale capital management, it’s easy to burn all of your profit + account.
The winning probability of the Out Bands candlesticks method in Olymp Trade is 9/14 ~ 65% (more than 50%). This is not very important if you lose the last options. Martingale, even if there is a high chance of winning, will still burn the account as usual. Therefore, although the method is easy, it is not suitable for newbies.
