Vortex Indicator Strategy

NSE:NIFTY   Nifty 50 Index
The most basic vortex indicator strategy is to use the crossovers as trade signals: when +VI crosses above -VI, go long; when -VI crosses above +VI, go short. Exit when a crossover occurs in the opposite direction.
Trading this basic strategy without filtering any of the signals can result in whipsaws. A whipsaw is when there is a crossover in one direction, followed shortly after by a crossover in the other direction. Whipsaws can result in a number of losing trades in a short period of time.
To help avoid this, only take +VI crossovers (above VI) when the overall trend is up.

When the overall trend is down, only take -VI crossovers (above +VI).

In either case, use a crossover in the opposite direction as an exit signal. A manual stop loss should also be placed to control risk. For a long trade, place a stop just below a recent swing low, and for a short trade place a stop just above a recent swing high.
I went through come documentation on this indicator and everywhere i get to know is that if DI croses 1.1 then only it is has Strenght for buyers, For sellers below 0.90

Did you experiment such things ?

@AvinashMudaliar,
One way to analyse is the momentum change, if the current DI moment is greater than the high or lesser than the low of the previous cycles its considered to be a bullish / bearish signs.. Another way to look upon it is to see the retracements above/below 1 for signalled movements.

@sandy, This is 1st Level Algo for an Indicator like Vortex(there are 3 more levels), The main aim of Vortex is to confirm the trend, and show the point of disagreement in price, In Profession Its used with a momentum indicator and a Harmonic, since it can define the Supports and Resistances very well (89% probablity). The main strategy with Vortex is to find whether a trend will continue or not.
Its Professionally used as a Confirmation tool, Not a Decision tool!
Should be used when you see a Breakout, to confirm whether it is a false breakout or not! :)
