Hello everyone! I am creating this post to cover the New York Daily Breakout Session Strategy.
This strategy can be used to trade the New York-US Forex Trading Session.
The New York Forex Session is the second largest to the London trading session in the currency market which operates 24hrs.
This is a simple breakout trading strategy where you wait for the breakout of a support to go short and breakout of a resistance level to go long.
Enjoy and I hope this helps with your trading ventures!
Best Performing Currency Pairs:
EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCHF, USDJPY
- Open a chart on the 15 min timeframe
- Draw a vertical line at 7am EST on your charting platform.
- Draw a vertical line at 9am EST on your charting platform.
- Draw a Horizontal line at the high of the identified zone.
- Draw a Horizontal line at the low of the identified zone.
- Place a buy stop pending order a few pips above the high and a sell stop pending order a few pips below the low.
- Place your stop loss on opposite ends, for example, your stop loss for the buy stop pending order will be placed at the level where you placed the sell stop pending order and opposite for the sell stop pending order.
- Wait for a breakout to happen and when one order fills, cancel the other pending order that has not been filled.
- Set your take profit zone 50 to 60 pips profit.
- If you see that the price does not break the high/low, then it is considered a ranging market. At this point, cancel both pending orders, and move on to the next day. Trading is not a race!

DISADVANTAGES OF THE NEW YORK BREAKOUT FOREX TRADING STRATEGY
All forex trading strategies have their disadvantages:
- If the distance between the high and low is more than 50-60 pips, it may be best to avoid because price has already moved and may not have the necessary momentum to be profitable.
- If you decide to take the trade under these circumstances, it is best to aim for 20-30 pips profit target instead of 50+ pips profit target.
