Forex Ribbon system is a trend following strategies based on guppy of moving averages filtered by a momentum indicator the Commodity Channel Index.
It is composed of two main indicators:
1. Ribbon
2. CCI 
Forex Ribbon System
The Ribbon is a seires of 7 moving averages, each one shifted 1 period farther than the
previous. It will be the way we determine whether we take a trade or not. In order for a long
trade, price must close above the ribbon. For a short trade, price must close below the ribbon.
The CCI is composed of 2 parts:
The CCI Histogram which is the red and blue bars.
The CCI Signal Line which is the green line that runs through the histogram.
Ribbon Signals
When the Ribbon gives off a signal, it can be at the close of a candle above or below the
Ribbon itself.
The first candle close above the Ribbon is a signal to go long.
The first candle close below the Ribbon is a signal to go short.

Direction of the market for trading
We will be guided by the CCI Histogram to tell us what direction to trade.
When the CCI Histogram is blue, we will only be looking to take long trades.
When the CCI Histogram is red, we will only be looking to take short trades.
Filtering
The Ribbon is our main signal generator, but we use the CCI Histogram as our filter
mechanism. Not every signal generated by the Ribbon is going to be a good signal. There are
times when the market is choppy and could use the assistance of a filter to help weed out
some of the bad trades.
This is where the CCI Histogram comes into play.
In periods where the market has closed below the Ribbon, we could see a signal for a short
trade, but if the CCI Histogram does not agree by turning red, then we cannot take the trade.
