Wave Trend Strategy

Strategy Idea

  • Settings explained apply to Long & Short!

This strategy aims to find pullbacks in trends. Super simple to follow and understand. It’s a must-have strategy for all traders that want to have a profitable Trend setup. Works in any market and timeframe.

The market moves in waves, Trend Waves, Swing Waves, Scalping Waves, Micro Waves, etc. The height of a wave is a measure of how strong that wave was. A strong wave can either be a sign of a trend reversal or the very first impulse that triggers a new trend. This indicator has the ability to display both positive and negative waves at the same time which can help us to find pullbacks within a bigger Trend Wave.

    WaveTrend Setting

    • In this example, we are using Standard settings. 

     

    We all have different trading styles and preferences

    If you feel that the standard settings don’t fit your style we recommend you to play around with the Wave Transition parameter

    Try:

    • Wave Transition: 1
    • Wave Transition: 10
    • Wave Transition: 50

    See the difference in the slideshow below

     

    With the settings above your chart should look like this!
