Trading is easy, however, consistently profitable trading is where the difficulty lies. Traders since the beginning of time have tried to come up with a strategy that they could use in order to increase their win rates while minimizing their risk. In this article, we go over one of the ways in which you could do so, by using the Triple SuperTrend in conjunction with volumes as a trading strategy. We discuss the different indicators, settings used, and also go over the results. Read on to find out more.
There are 3 main indicators used in this trading setup, and each of these indicators has been explained below in detail.
The Squeeze Momentum indicator can be used to identify volatility, as it indicates whenever voaltility increases or decreases. After every movement in a certain direction, the trend ends and the market begins to consolidate at that price level. The Squeeze Momentum indicator can help identify when this happens so that trading strategies can be adjusted accordingly.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence or the MACD is a momentum-based indicator that shows the relationship between two different EMAs. It is calculated by subtracting the EMA over the larger period from the EMA over the shorter period. This line can then be superimposed over another EMA line (called the signal line) in order to use as a buy or sell signal. Usually, traders go long when the MACD is above the EMA, and short when the MACD is below the EMA.
The Wolfpack ID indicator is primarily used for the confirmation of a trade. Whenever all the other criteria have been met in the trading strategy, the Wolfpack ID can be looked at for a final confirmaiton. Usually, you only enter a long whenever the Wolfpack ID line is green, and shorts when the Wolfpack ID line is red.
For this particular trading setup, the following settings were used on the indicators:
- Squeeze Momentum: All the default settings were used.
- MACD: An additional MACD line was added in order to be able to spot reversals.
- Wolfpack ID: All the divergence lines were removed.
The Squeeze Momentum indicator has two parts: the bars are colored in green or red, and they also have a light or dark element to them. A dark bar indicates that the trend is now being reversed. A long will be initiated whenever the bars shift from red-white bars to red-dark bars. In addition to this, the MACD line should show a reversal and the Wolfpack ID line should be green.
A short will be initiated whenever the Squeeze Momentum bars shift from green-white to green-dark bars. In addition to this, the MACD line should show a reversal and the Wolfpack ID line should be red.
The risk-reward ratio was set at 1:2.
