Now I'd be lying if I told you there is any sure way to tell the best time to buy/sell, but indicators can definitely help, especially when you're not very experienced. One of my new favourites is the the Flow Indicator (VFI) by LazyBear. I'm not going to explain to you what it is or how it works; you can read that at the link provided at the bottom of this post.
But I'll show you an example of how I used it based on the author's suggestion. According to the author, typically a reading above the zero line puts you in territory, and one below the zero line in territory. But as you can see, it might be a bit late if you wait for that. So what you can do instead is look at divergence on the VFI as an indicator of trend reversal. Divergence is basically a higher low near the bottom (yellow lines shown above), or a lower high near the top (blue lines shown above).
As you can see, it's a pretty good indicator of trend reversal. I'll be using it a lot more going forward. One thing to note is that I'm using a 4 hour chart here. You may get better results on a , or 1 hour chart, depending on the coin/stock in question, so do experiment a bit on a per coin/stock basis to see what back-tests the best in that particular case. Another tip from the author is to use a Coefficient of 0.2 for day trading, and 0.1 for intraday trading, which you can change by clicking the gear/settings icon on the VFI toolbar (I'm using 0.2 here).
If you think this tutorial is absolutely amazing, and will help you be the best trader you can be, please smash the like button and give me a follow, because I'll be writing a lot more of these, and you'll be notified if you follow me.
