AUD / JPY | Day Trading Strategies
Day Trading Strategies – this trading system exploits the tendency of the currency pair strategy AUD / JPY (Australian dollar vs. Japanese yen) to be statistically low during the penultimate hour before applying the rate interest on Wednesdays. This particular week day was chosen because the interest rate is tripled on Wednesdays when compared with normal days (Saturday and Sunday interest are applied on Wednesdays). It is unknown why AUD / JPY, a couple with traditionally positive interest rate, is sold 1-2 hours before applying the interest. Perhaps traders (large hedge funds) with big bullish positions prefer this time to partially close their positions without affecting much marked. This strategy is implemented in the expert advisor fully automated for MT4 / MT5 platform.
Warning! According to the latest evidence of this strategy during the period from 2008-07-07 until 01/24/2014, is no longer profitable, generating significant losses. Do not use this technique in a real account! It can only be used for educational purposes.

Example of Day Trading Strategies
Sample graphs show four Wednesday (14, 21, October 28 and November 4, 2009). The H1 bar occurred at 15:00 ET is marked with a red ellipse. I checked every Wednesday from 7 January to November 4, 2009 and the statistical benefit of selling during that time was 400 pips after 44 weeks is ~ 9.1 pip per trade, which is above the average spread of AUD / JPY (5 pips). Of course, there are some Wednesdays when the strategy results in loss but in the long term is beneficial.
