@dannyzee, Hello! I hope it's of use to you. I don't actually trade with this; I use it to give me an idea when new trends are starting. EMA crosses on their own will lag so it's not an ideal trading system. Of course, it you were to trade on the 10 & 20 EMA crosses then TPs would entirely depend on your timeframe and the average trade size of the instrument.

@vikram77, there isn't one single indicator that works well. The secret is to combine systems from different categories (volume, momentum etc) and let those influence your decisions
